Filliben Memorial Day Party

Usually Jim and I host this at our house, but this yr we thought it would be best to do it at my parents, since my mom was having a hard time w/o my dad, we brought the fun back to her house...AWESOME time!!!!!

Road Trip

Me, Rob and my mom took a road trip to Indiana to see Liam receive his was an important visit because my DAD was Liam's we all wanted to be there, for this...ALSO, I hadn't seen my sister since my dad's funeral, and she had ONE MORE chemo left, so I actually decided to come on this trip at the very last minute and surprised her...and BOY was she surprised!!! 

We had a GREAT time as always...

The Great Debate

Many of you know, I'm highly when I saw this article, I had to indulge!  I too agree that Facebook is NOT for children.  Most parents who allow their children under the age of 13 to have an acct on FB obviously do not even know that FB has an agreement that no one under the age of 13 is allowed to have an acct on FB.  I know personally several under the age of 13, who are on FB...which means, they lied on their acct just to get on this social network! 

I found this article spot on...
I think kids today are growing up way too fast...are gaining access into things they shouldn't be getting into, and computer use is really something that should be monitored.

Personally, my kids are allowed on 3 sites...Justice, Nickelodeon, and Play Pink.  They ask me before they even go on it...they do not have free range to go on it whenever they feel...the internet is a scary place for kids but I think FB is def not children friendly!  Again, just my opinion.
