We had to open one of the packages for umm testing (playing with the camera) and we are definitely going back for more. The even had glow leis which I am so going to have to go back for. We're going to be glow-tastic and making all the kiddies jealous. Well except yours as you have the glow sticks covered.

I am so jealous! I just so your picture with the Stanley Cup. We love hockey in our house and would love to see the Cup. Did it come near your home or were you out of town?

Yes, the passport thing can be a real hassle. I have a friend who is going to England/France in November and her U.S. passport request had been bogged down for over 5 months and she kept calling and it was stuck at stage 3 of 5 and was showing no sign of moving forward. She ended up calling her congressman She got her passport the next afternoon though - lol!

Well you gotta do what's best for your health, and you certainly couldn't chance going into surgery with any sickie ickies Here's some good mojo for the procedure

Hehehe, well I work at a college in IT and the adage is "MACs are just fine, just keep them off of my network" ;-] Yup, northwesterner and wouldn't have it any other way.

We're flying out the second week of January and for once don't have a long drive to the airport, having found decent airfare taking off from the next town over Going there will be great, it is coming back that is going to be a drag :P

Thanks! At least with dance they wear the same thing every year except when it comes to costumes. Now that's a scary time of year!

The picture of the cup was taken last summer. Carolina had won it and someone from our little hometown was on the team so he got to bring it home! It was so much fun!

I've had to call about the passports going "but we leave in 2 days!" and they were really good about getting them to us. It really wasn't too big of a deal but I was still panicing.

Lucky flying out close to home. We just can't justify the cost because it is an international flight from here. If we fly out from south of the border - it is literally 1/4 of the cost.

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

Talk to you soon!

Am I on chapter 14 or 15? I can't remember. Can't remember much these days! Must be getting old.....

Oh well. I am going to call it 14!

A little background......

When Belle was little HG (that's Handsome Genius for those who may not have read the first page also known as my husband!) and I thought it would be fun to conduct a little experiment with brain washing (yes, we were that evil) on our little girl.

From the time she was very little when we were teaching her that dogs say "woof" and cats say "meow" and cows say "moo" we also taught her that hippos say "hippo hippo". Thought we'd plant that little seed in there and see where it took us.

Well everything was going along great until her first day of preschool. Hugged her and kissed her and told her that we loved her and had no idea that 4 years of careful brain washing was about to come completely undone in 2 hours.

When I went to pick her up from her very first day she came stomping out of her classroom mad as anything and yelled at me "Hippos don't say hippo hippo!".

All that work for nothing.

Anyways......

When Tink came along she was way too smart for that. She was on to us from the very first time we tried to tell her that.

But Tink is obsessed with hippos so maybe all our work wasn't for nothing. She has a stuffed hippo that she doesn't go anywhere without and knows all sorts of interesting hippo facts but had never in her memory seen a real live hippo. Of course she has seen one but not since she was a year old so fair enough - she wanted to see one.

On Thursday we went on a hippo party and headed south of the border to Seattle in search of hippos! Woodland Park Zoo here we come!

She had a ball and spent most of her time infront of the hippo pond yelling "HIPPO" at the top of her lungs! It was very cute and was exactly the kind of escape we needed.

Here come the hippos!

That's a cute story!
I've never seen a hippo that close! I would have been tempted to throw it some bubblegum balls. (that's what they looked like in the game)

The trainers were throwing them apples when they'd open up but like that! It was so cute - they'd beg for the apples!

That would have been cool to see :-] We saw several of them at the Oregon Zoo in Portland - it was really cool seeing something that big swimming through the water :D

Sarah, I'll be thinking good thoughts for you on Tuseday! All will go well, then you can move on to all things Disney!!!

Ugh, talk to me about kids' activities....I've got two in dance and cheerleading and wanting to add gymnastics in the winter and DS plays inline hockey. The initial output ($) for hockey equipment was alot but hopefully he won't outgrow everything too quickly. Dance, yes, I agree, isn't so bad, until you get all of those recital expenses...costumes, t-shirts, dvd's, tickets...yikes!!!

They are pretty cool to watch - they are surprisingly graceful for something that huge!

Thanks Laurie. I think I am in denial about tomorrow and i plan on staying there as long as I can!

Thankfully (or maybe not depending on how you look at it) Belle can only do dance and no other activities because she does it 6 days a week for up to 5 hours a day so no room for any other activities! Tink doesn't do as much and she was figure skating as well but I think she wants to drop figure skating and add more dance.

For us its the competetion fees and costumes that kill us. Last year Belle had 13 numbers! Yikes! Anyone want to buy a kidney?
