Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!

We’re part Irish so we wanted to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! Mommy said her would take us to Dairy Queen for a Mint Oreo Blizzard!! Yay!! Anybody coming along?

Tonight's Theme: Working CrittersWe goed hunting for four-leafed clovers and we didn’t find any. We did find an Irish Bear friend at Barnes & Noble the other night, though. Him was beary nice. We wanted to bring him home, but him said him had to work late and couldn’t get out early. There were other places Mommy needed to go so we hadda say goodbye to our new friend because we couldn’t wait for him to get off work.

Mommy says that traditional dinner for St. Patrick’s Day is corned beef and cabbage. Mommy said we could have that if we want. There’s a guy in Hugetown who plays him’s bagpipes on the roof of a pub. We thought that might be cool to see, but Mommy gots to work tomorrow. We’d rather have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade with all of our friends, anyway.

A Toast For Our Friends

There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.

We raise a mug of hot chocolate to you!!

Love, Alex

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!!

Guess, what? Today, March 14th, is Pi Day!! So… we writed a little poem.

Ode to Pi

There once was a man who liked Pi.
To divide 22/7 he did try.
He tried with ground round,
Not a circle was found,
Nor was any spilled on his tie.

Love, Alex

Livestrong, Austin TX Mommy has had a few problems the past couple of years. Her had a ski accident when I was just a little bunny and her hadda have surgery on her knee. It was really bad. Her was in a brace and on crutches for almost a whole year, but her did all of her therapy and everything worked out okay. When we moved here, her didn’t getta go outside and play as much as her did in Minnesnowda and her knee getted sore again but her goed to the doctor and they gived her some medicine to make it feel better. In 2005, her friends from work convinced her to ride her bike from Hugetown to Austin. Her did that and finished. Yay!!! Good job, Mommy!! Her was riding it again in 2006 and her other leg stopped working so her goed back to the doctors again and her had surgery on both of her knees at Thanksgiving right after we first joined Flickr.

MRIThat sorta helped her and then her was playing softball and swimming and stuff and her shoulder was hurting her so her goed back to the doctor again. They sended her to lots and lots of therapy to see if they could fix it. It getted better but it still hurted so when her goed back the doctor wanted to take a picture called a MRI. When they taked the picture them found a owie in her shoulder and her’s going to have to have surgery for that. It will be right after Easter. We are very busy helping the Easter Bunny during Eastertime so her hadda schedule it for after that weekend. The good thing is that Nana and Poppa are going to come and help us take good care of her because her won’t be able to use her arm for more than a month! That will be lots of fun because they will buy us lots of Dairy Queen Blizzards!!

Her’s been practicing doing things with only her left arm. It’s kind of funny to watch sometimes because her is right-handed. We think her’s going to be eating just chicken nuggets and toaster waffles for that whole time because when her eats with just her left hand, her needs a bib!! There’s lots of stuff we’ll have to help with like washing hands and putting contacts in and stuff like that where you need two hands. Her said yesterday that her will need to find some slip-on shoes to wear because her won’t be able to tie hers herself. We could probably get the puppies to do it but they might chew up the laces playing tug instead.

ChickenWe’re letting you know because we probably won’t be able to take many pictures or do many blog posts for a while after her has her surgery because we’ll be busy taking care of her. Her said we would try to take a bunch of pictures of stuff before her has the surgery and we can post them in little bits while her can’t use her arm. We’ll try to keep you posted when it happens, but if you don’t hear from us, you know why.

Love, Alex

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!!

Packing Up the Ladders at the Habitat HouseGregg and I goed with Mommy last weekend and we getted to do lots of cool things! First we went to the Habitat for Humanity house that her is helping to build. It is really neat to see how fast Mommy and her friends build a house even though they only work on weekends. Gregg and I even getted to help!! With our engineering skills, we worked on the plans for the porch and then we helped put some stuff together. We meeted new friends and had lots of fun!

On Our Way to a Fire!!There is a fire truck in Texiss City we getted to work on and that was pretty cool. We were in fireman training class and we learned lots about how the hoses go on and the water valves when it pumps water and all kinds of cool stuff. We getted to have our picture taken on the truck, too. We asked Mommy if her would let us go to firefighter school and buy us uniforms. Her said her would see what her could do.

After we was done building for the day we found a patch of clover. We asked Mommy to stop and check it out because we like a little clover salad from time to time and wanted to pick some. When we getted to the clover, we finded some Texas Bluebonnets and a new friend there, too! In the clover patch was a cute little moo cow! We getted our friends, Moo and Morris, to help translate what the cow said. When we was driving, Mommy finded the horsie ranch where our friend Hiding CowColorado lives and the little cow ran into the barn there to be with the rest of her family. We was sad to see her go so soon after we meeted her, but we’ll go visit her sometimes.

It was a beary busy weekend!! Now that spring and Easter are coming we’ll be beary busy!!

Love, Alex

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!

Mommy reminded us that today is the day 4 years ago that we finded out Great-Grandpa went to Heaven. We miss him lots and hope that somebody went to him’s grave today and said hello. We tell him hello when we say our prayers before we go to bed every night. Mommy telled us that there are a lot of little kids in Heaven who needed a cool Grandpa like him and so him’s taking care of them. We hope those little kids love him as much as me, Karmel, Spam, Mommy, Auntie Wisa, Miss Mouse and CJ do.

Love, Alex

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!!

It’s Poppa’s birthday!! We getted him a cool card, but we didn’t get it in the mail until after him’s birthday. We called him and telled him Happy Birthday, and guess what?!? We was the first ones to call him!! That was pretty cool because Auntie Wisa usually has CJ and Miss Mouse sing Happy Birthday to peoples first thing in the morning.

We wanted to get him a cool present, but Nana wouldn’t let us. Poppa said him wanted to hook up the puter to the telebision so him could record stuff on the puter. Mommy finded a puter thingee that him could use but Nana said him didn’t need one. We asked Poppa what him wanted and him said him doesn’t know. Can you believe that?!? We can’t!  So now Mommy gots to figure something else out. Hopefully him will tell us what him wants pretty soon!!

Love, Alex

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!!

Remember how I told you almost exactly a month ago that we was moving? Well, now we’re not. It was a beary stressful month for Mommy. The peoples in the apartment office wanted lots of extra monies in rent that her couldn’t afford. We looked at all kinds of other places. Her taked us to look at other apartment complexes and some condos and townhouses and even a house we could have all to ourselves. Those places were pretty expensive, too, so her was thinking about living in a house with a roommate, too. That was kinda scary for us because Mommy was gonna hafta store a bunch of her stuff and we couldn’t have all of our toys at the new place. But… the apartment peeps turned out to be good eggs and our rent will still be more but not as much as they wanted at first. We’re glad because Mommy didn’t really want to pack the boxes in the first place. We’re also glad because me and Mommy was both beary sick after we getted back from Minnesnowda. We even hadda go to the doctor and get some new stuff for our noses. Thankfully, we’re all better now and spring is right around the corner, so that’s good. We’re going to try to take more pictures and do more stuff on the blog. But Mommy said we gotta gets our taxes done first. Whatever that means.

Love, Alex
