Earlier this month, I blogged about going holiday shopping at Staples.  I talked about how traditionally, I had only really thought of Staples as an office supply store.  It's really evolved into so much more.

I gotta agree with Madonna - "Music makes the people come together."

Our Wii was off for most of the summer.  We definitely go through waves of being into playing with it or not, but after a couple of rainy days in the past few weeks, we turned it back on.  We were playing a variety of games when Nate asked to pull out an old game we hadn't played much of - Nintendo's Animal Crossing: City Folk.  I had … [Read more...]
