And we all watched Little Bear and lived happily ever after...

This morning when Cary and I woke up, we were laying in bed just cuddling and talking and I said, "Do you know what I miss?" I'm sure he thought I was about to say, "Texas, REAL Mexican food, bluebonnets, Aggieland, my friends and family back home, etc etc." But for once, that's not what was on my mind. I said, "I miss Little Bear!" And no, that is not code for something sexual. Y'all get your minds out of the gutter! In case you fell off of a turnip truck or were born yesterday, Little Bear is the GREATEST kid's cartoon EVER created! And I'm not much of a cartoon fan, nor are my children. But we all LOVE Little Bear! When we moved to this house 2 months ago, we switched our satellite service b/c we got a better deal. But the package we got didn't include the Noggin channel and I truly thought I could live with that sacrifice for the sake of a lower payment. But what the heck! What's $5 bucks a month right? Little Bear is priceless! So we clicked on a few buttons and voila, within seconds, we had the Noggin channel! Isn't technology great? When it works! We quickly discovered that there was a Little Bear marathon starting at 4 p.m. So we rushed to get done with all our chores for the day so that we could have some family time on the couch. We popped some popcorn and got all geared up to watch Little Bear. And it was pure delight. All four of us sharing slurpees and popcorn. Except that after a few minutes, I looked over and the girls had gone off to the playroom and it was just Cary and I sitting on the couch watching Little Bear. But that really didn't bother us. We watched and watched and laughed and laughed and got all full of warm fuzzies!

Oh and long live Duck...my favorite character on Little Bear! We DVRed all the episodes today so we can have Little Bear whenever we want!

Noggin is so great!! And I think the DVR is amazing. I love being able to have the kids watch a show that played at 11:00 a.m. at 6p.m. Too fun! My kids like little bear too. Too funny that you and Cary sat and watched it.
