Techno Christmas

The last of the Christmas presents arrived today.
This MP3 player was purchased with the money
my mom's mom sent her for Christmas. Another tiny technology that came in a big package!
Once open, it was easy to start downloading songs
from Windows Media Player.

My seat is now tangled with USB cords
hanging off the front of the desktop computer!I just wish this had earphones in my size,
because I think the device actually would fit in my pocket!
Now that it is leaving,
I think we are almost up to speed with this decade.
Happy New Year!

Inside Activities

It is gray and snowy outside,
but not enough to sled in the grass,
which is just getting wet.
That means that it is time for inside activities.
I heard a knock at the door, and the UPS man
left a padded envelope.
I was hoping it was a new outfit and I could play dress up.
No such luck.
It was a software upgrade for the new mini laptop.
It came in a big box, so I opened it up!
There wasn't anything in it except the paper insert.
Mom said to pull out the card with the number on it.
That is called the Product Upgrade Key.

She went to a link on the menu that says to Upgrade Windows Anytime,
and it opened a new page.
I read the number to mom so she could type it in,
and the computer did the rest of the work.
Oh well.
I hope playing with the new program is more fun than installing it.

Holiday Activity Booklet

Look what I found!
I found the holiday activity booklets from Build a Bear!
Time to do a word search, dot to dot, and maze!
Are there any other holiday activities I can do?

Snow Day

Did we have weather this week!
It rained on Thursday, and snowed during the night.
Friday morning was even a 2 hour delay
for the local schools!
Snowflake and I set out Saturday around noon
to see if we could find a large enough patch to play in.
Most of it has melted, been walked on,
and been scooped for snowballs.
We played with the sled and I made a snow angel.

This is Snowflake.

And here I am!

This is our first snowfall of the season...
just in time for winter to arrive in a few days.
