We Believe!

Thanksgiving was a hoot! We got up early, ate, took a nap, played a few games of Wii Bowling (Aimee shared my controller since hers is still MIA), took another nap, went for a walk and dove in all the leaves, and found the biggest slug we’d ever seen. Too bad I didn’t have my camera! Then we headed home for the highlight of our day – the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The best part, of course, was the last 10 minutes when we all rushed over to the TV to cheer Santa’s arrival. Woo Woo! Santa’s here!! So much excitement -- it’s time for a nap!

Time to Spare

I just love bowling. As a matter of fact, I’ve always wanted to become a professional bowler. But can anybody answer me this…... Why in the world, when you go bowling, do they only give you two shoes? And what’s up with the way they drill the holes in the balls? Do they ever fit anybody? And why is the alley so slippery? A person can break their neck out there! It’s no wonder so many bowling alleys are closing down. But now, I’m doing more bowling than ever since I just sprung for a Wii and got Wii Bowling. It’s amazing!! You don’t need any shoes (two or four), you don’t slip down the alley and go head first into the gutter (although Orielle got a big kick out of it every time I did it), but most importantly, you don’t need an ill-fitting bowling ball! And, I’m so excited about the release this week of AMF Bowling World Lanes which offers Tournament Mode!! How awesome!!! Now, if we can only find Aimee’s game controller……

Practice Makes Perfect

Okay, so Orielle wasn’t exactly pleased I took a picture of her ironing in her house dress and curlers. So I figured I’d take her out for the day to, you know, make up a little bit for the ironing debacle. I’ve been target practicing lately, and since it was such a nice day out, I invited her to come along. At first, she wasn’t all that keen on going until I mentioned that there would be food there. She quickly changed her tune. Little did she know that she would become more a part of it than she realized, and that the food I mentioned would end up on her head!
Gosh, I'm good!!!

This has been a reenactment. Do not try this at home without a parent or legal guardian present.

Moving On...

Darn! I didn’t get elected President of the United States, even after all that campaigning I did that day! That’s OK. It was a good thing actually, because on my way home I had time to stop and take a few nature shots. My favorite was the one I like to call “Tennis Ball in Fall Foliage.” But nothing topped what I found when I walked through the door at home. Once AGAIN, I caught Orielle in one of those “moments.” I guess she wasn’t expecting me quite so soon. Ooooh, she’s really gonna kill me for this one!
