busy bee's

Hello Mr. Dog Whisperer!!!
Do you see him? He's in the grey sweater by the door way.. look at the pug watching me! So cute.

Last week the infamous Cesar Millan was in town to do a talk & the day after he did a meet and greet at the Bosley's Pet store here in Richmond. We went not really knowing what to expect. The first 200 people got wrist bands and got to wait inside a building. If you weren't so lucky, you had to wait outside in the dreary rain. We were 183 & 184!!!  Whew! But, we got there at 10am... and didn't meet him until after 1:00. It was a long wait. AND we ended up sticking around to see him leave as requested by my daughter. So we had to wait another hour after we met him, to see him depart. But, my youngest was pretty stoked to meet him. The whole process was all pretty rushed though, They herded people in groups of 25 & you got your photo taken with him and he signed whatever you wanted and were given a head shot of him. I don't think we even made eye contact. Oh well!!! At least I stood in his presence, the ol'mighty dog whisperer. 

Guess who's taught herself to finger knit??? No, not me.
But, my little one is now an expert little finger knitter. She taught herself & is now making some special little projects for a craft show we are doing this weekend. 

We took a quick jaunt over the border this past weekend and she finger knitted herself into a coma...Well not quite, but there was some complaining about her fingers being sore. She's also attempted to show her bigger sister how it's done, but it wasn't very successful. I am trying to encourage them to not give up!!! Because it does seem super fun! You make things quite quickly. There is nothing better than seeing results within minutes. It's pretty rewarding.

We are spending the rest of the week getting ready for the craft show & trying to work on the Airstream!!!

I need clones of myself.

journal time

Last night my youngest daughter was catching up on some homework. As I looked over her shoulder down onto her notebook, I quickly noticed the words "Jackass". 

My inner alarm went off.
Not good words to be handing into a teacher!!!

I asked her what she was up to and what she was writing. She was just writing a review in her journal about a funny movie she has seen recently. I asked if she really thought Jackass, were good words to see on paper and hand into the teacher. She caught my drift & figured something else out.

Yes, we went to see Jackass 3 in 3D. Oh lordy! I hadn't seen the first 2, but knew the guys did some crazy stuff. Well... it was my youngest daughters choice of movie. She thought it would be soooo funny. Everytime she saw the ad on tv, she mentioned about wanting to go. I honestly had no idea what we were walking into. She laughed up a storm! Totally inappropiate for a young girl her age (what was I thinking?)... but, she didn't mind. There was some eye covering during some parts. I think her sense of humor may be slightly "off". She loved it.

She was looking though youtube video's and I have to say, I do like Johnny Knoxville. I love the catchy tune of the song in this clip too! I'm now smitten with Johnny.
Even though he is so rotten.

the hulk

A while back my daughter jumped in the car after school and said, " I broke some buttons on my shirt." I was all... "How?"... she said, "I reached up to grab something, and pretty much hulked my way outta the shirt!".

I couldn't stop laughing!!! 
Hulked her way outta the shirt!!!???

Oh, she kills me!

My little hulk.

last night

Fun times were had last night trick o' treating! We finally found an awesome neighbourhood that gets into the spirit of things in Richmond! YAY! After the last two Halloweens here, we were so close to giving up  & heading back to North Vancouver for treats. We even got to enjoy some fireworks at the West Richmond community centre before calling it at night.
