Easter Eggs and Easter Traditions

Easter is almost here. I can’t wait to have all the kids over hunting for eggs and my favorite part the confetti eggs. When I was a little girl, we used to always find the perfect batch of wildflowers and take pictures in them with our baskets and Easter Bunnies. My twin sister Kelly enjoys when our grandma fills Easter Eggs with money which sometimes are dollar bills in them to hunt. It’s quite a scene to see us big grandkids hunt eggs but boy, is it fun. Families all have different traditions for Easter. Here are a few traditions people have.

Mom’s Work is Never Done – Kids and their Birthdays

Having 3 kids, we’ve planned a few birthday parties. For some, we have gone all out and for a few it has just been a small dinner with close family.

My daughter’s birthday is on Christmas Eve so it’s always tricky to try and plan her party. Do we do it before Christmas or after Christmas? Do we invite all her classmates even though it’s so close to Christmas? One year she decided she wanted a luau themed party complete with swimming. That year we did a ‘half’ birthday. She had a party in June at a swimming pool. While that was a lot of fun, come December, she wanted another party!

Facebook – What You Can Learn

Facebook is the largest social network. I mean, is there really any others out there? And we all wonder what we did before it. Some of us update our status, some people pretend not to look at Facebook and won’t admit that they really do, all the time... stalking. And some us are actually using it as a tool to keep up to date with folks we wouldn’t otherwise have time to chat with on the phone as often as we’d like.

We will all admit we learn things about others. Sometimes, it's things we didn’t really want to know.

5 Things About Kenny Chesney That Might Surprise You

As our Kenny Chesney contest continues on Facebook – sign up for a chance to win a flight to Green Bay to meet Chesney and see him play on June 11 at Lambeau Field – we're running down some of the highlights of Chesney's prolific career. In his nearly two-decade run at the top of the country charts, Chesney's produced over 30 top 10 hits (not to mention his four Entertainer of the Year nods from the CMA), and his recent achievements are nothing to sneeze at, either – among them his current 'Goin' Coastal Tour' and the release of 'Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D.'

Despite all those successes, there are things even Chesney's fans don't know about the star - so we've put together this list of five things about the country star that would probably surprise you.

Kids Say (And Do) The Darnedest Things

As a mom, you love your kids unconditionally, but they sure can embarrass you sometimes! Just the other day, standing in line at the checkout at HEB, my Bowen, who is 2, pointed to a bearded man standing behind us and YELLED, “That man looks like a billy goat! That billy goat STINKS!”

Talk about wanting to run away! I was so embarrassed and couldn’t even turn and walk in the other direction because I had all my groceries laid out on the belt and was ready to check out. To add salt to the mortified wound, Bowen then asked to have a chocolate bunny at the checkout. I told him no and that too much candy would put holes in his teeth. He pointed to the checker and said, rather loudly, “She has holes in her teeth!” I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! To the man with the beard and the checker, I am so sorry that my 2 year old has not learned better manners!

375-Pound Shark Jumps Into Fisherman’s Boat [VIDEO]

Some may say that Texas fisherman Jason Kresse caught a shark, but when the 375-lb. sea creature jumped into his boat early last Monday, it kind of caught him instead.

The 29-year-old Freeport resident was out fishing for a red snapper with two coworkers about 50 miles off the Gulf of Mexico coast when they felt something hit the side of the boat. A few seconds later, the mammoth Mako was thrashing around inside the boat, much to Kresse and his posse's surprise.

The Week in Geek: My Kindle Dilemma

Every time I bring up the subject of wanting a Kindle, someone inevitably mentions, “There’s an app for that.” They’re right, of course. It’s a small download, minimal fuss to get it set up the way I want it on my Android phone, and I could be off and reading.

Therein lies the problem.
