Lincoln's Batman birthday party!

First off, omg, fail. I thought I took pictures of the decor but apparently not. :( Ugh. I tried to go pretty simple. We tried to have a cheap and good party. We had it at Howard Peeple's park where we had Brayden's 3rd party. Batman banner, plates, napkin, and cups. I made cupcakes with yellow wrappers and yellow sprinkles. I didn't do gift bags. Instead I got Batman masks and Batman rubber bracelets. We did Little Caesar's pizza and fruit (apples and grapes).

Family fun at Cumberland Pizza N Games! (Wordless Wednesday)

A long time ago Kingsland had a bar called Starters. It closed and someone just opened a family fun center called Cumberland Pizza N Games. It has buffet type food (pizza, salad, etc) and an arcade. We were pretty excited about going there. We didn't eat there this time. I had heard the place was expensive. It was fairly pricey but not too bad. Mostly, the bowling. The bowling was the only thing not worth it to me. It was pretty crowded but we had a lot of fun, especially Brayden. He's starting to get really good at arcade games.

Lincoln's birthday on Friday!

We had his party today but his actual birthday was Friday. I didn't have to be to work until noon so, we took him to breakfast at Cracker Barrel, which we did last year too (not pictured in that post though). After breakfast I had to go to work. After work we went to my mom's house for dinner. My mom, her girlfriend, and my sister had to work today during his party.

NeatMP3 Pro Review and giveaway!



Do you have  thousands of poorly labeled music files scattered all around your hard drive that are just waiting to be organized and renamed? This is where NeatMP3 Pro comes in with its intuitive interface and powerful organizing engine. NeatMP3 Pro is a powerful music organizer software for Windows and Mac OS X that will enable you to easily merge, organize, rename and edit the tags of all the audio files on your computer.

About NeatMP3 Pro: You can merge, organize, rename and edit the tags of your audio files in a single processing session. Just select a set of audio files, choose the way in which your files will be organized and renamed from a wide set of commonly used predefined patterns, select the location where you want your files to be moved and you’re ready to go. Get a perfectly organized music collection in just three easy steps.

If the audio files that you are trying to organize have incomplete or invalid tags NeatMP3 Pro will automatically take care of them by removing the invalid tags and filling the incomplete tags with information extracted from the names of the original files. Want to manually edit your tags? No problem! NeatMP3 Pro also allows manual and batch id3 tag editing, offers support for Unicode characters and in case you are having trouble filling those missing tags, the online tag search option will make your job a lot easier by providing you with very accurate tag information.

NeatMP3 Pro supports all the commonly used audio file formats (MP3, OGG, FLAC, WAV, MPC, AIFF, ASF, MP4) and also benefits from additional features like custom rename, output preview, file search, saving the current setting as profiles for later use, logging, deleting the source photos after processing and even allows you to play the songs that you are organizing.

What we thought: This program has amazing features! It's so easy to organize your music. You can edit the tags of multiple songs. All the tool definitely come in handy. A while back Rj loaded all of his music onto my laptop. It REALLY wasn't organized at all. It was madness, seriously. I had over a thousand songs filed and organized in less than an hour. Love this program!

NeatMP3 Pro is allowing me to give away the program to one of my readers!
