My Wishlist

Christmas of 2009 may be over but my wishlist was simple. It's not a list at all, really. All I really want for Christmas is this to happen...

Angry Elf

In the spirit of Christmas, I'm posting one of my favorite "he thinks he's an elf but really he's a midget" scenes. Actually, no other movies or scenes come to mind that have that exchange in them. Although, I'm sure they're out there.

There I go rambling again.

Picture of the Week

Earlier this week the boys were decorating sugar cookies like we do every year. I'm worse than the kids when it comes to eating what you decorate so I opted to quietly sit down and take pictures of the experience instead. Mikey insisted on ignoring me and the camera for the most part. Then, Mikey looked vaguely in my direction, as I sat there waiting patiently, and I got a picture of his big blue eyes.

FAIL. Ever have one of those days?

Thank You For Stopping By

Awesome Boise State Picture

The Boise State Broncos emerge from the smoke filled tunnel hand-in-hand only to sprint onto the field as Winston Venable proudly carries out the hammer. The hammer is awarded to the player who had the hardest hit in the previous game.

Immediately one of my favorite pictures of all time.

Picture of the Week

For the first time in a while I went almost an entire week without taking one single picture, putting this weeks POTW in jeopardy. Finally, yesterday I dusted off the camera and got a few pictures of Mikey. Then of course I gave Mikey's toes a little nibble. I apologize in advance if you're offended by a close-up of my big face. But I love Mikey's feet. That's not weird is it?

Why is that when I go to the gym I search for the closest parking space to the front door? I don't get it.

Quentin Tarantino and Lady Elaine Fairchilde

Is it just me or does Quentin Tarantino look a lot like Lady Elaine Fairchilde from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood? By the way, that Elaine Fairchilde puppet scared me to death when I was a kid.

Eerie. I got chills right now.

Rite Aid?

Tell me, when was the last time you stepped foot into a Rite Aid? Has it been days, weeks, months, years, ever?!?!?

On my way home from the YMCA this evening I remembered I needed to stop and get some work gloves. The only store on my way home was Rite Aid. In case you haven't heard, the entire western United States is freezing right now. I wasn't about to veer off course.

The last time I was at Rite Aid was 2006. I was skeptical before I walked in. This particular Rite Aid must get customers because it's still in business. But there were no customers to be found in this store, only two visible employees. I figure this makes Rite Aid a glorified convenience store.

Now for the anticlimactic finish to the story. I bought a pair of sweet gloves for $2.99. My trip home was interrupted for maybe five total minutes.

Not a bad store. I may go there again...before it goes under.

Picture of the Week

Depending on where you live in Boise, we woke up to between 1-3 inches of snow this morning. We were closer to three. The boys get really excited about snow until they go outside and realize snow is COLD. Timo, Noah and Mikey lasted only five minutes or so outside this morning. That was still enough time for Timo to make a snow angel.

And of course this is what's left of our old couch. I'm in the middle of breaking it down so it can be thrown in the dumpster. Guess I'll have to wait a day or two to finish it off.

Bonehead Moment

I remember when the Chicago Bulls used to be my most favorite team on the planet. Now, I hardly watch the NBA.

I can't imagine Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen, or any other respectable NBA player just standing there watching a player tie his shoe with ball in hand during a live play. As if this game was being played on the playground and you have the authority to say, "timeout, I need to tie my shoe" while everyone waits for you. That's Bull. Pun intended.

Holy Christmas Lights Batman!!

We found a cool house in North Boise that has a ridiculous amount of Christmas decorations. Our family enjoys driving around during the Christmas season to look at decorations people have worked hard to put up. It works out well since the boys love the decorations and I'm attracted to bright colors.
Anyway, I heard of a home that boasts having "around 500,000" lights. That puts the Griswold house to shame. I tried my best to take pictures. I may have had some better pictures if I hadn't forgot my dang memory card.

Click to enlarge for better clarity.

You could easily play catch in their driveway in the middle of the night. I'm hoping to go there again so I can try to get a better panoramic picture. If I do, you know I'll post it!

KISS sighting

I post this video with some slight hesitation. You see, Noah was trying to do his business on the toilet, which he has trouble with sometimes. I thought I would help by scaring the poop out of him.

Yep, that's Gene Simmons. Don't worry, Noah is just fine. And I'm happy to report my controversial tactic worked producing results less than five minutes later.
