Hi Everybuddy, it’s me, Alex!

Hey, WordPress gived us a idea for a post! They wanna know all about ours longest road trip!

Well… Mom says that it was prolly when we moved from Hugetown to Washing-a-ton cuz that was 2,177 miles. It taked us 3 whole days to getted from Texiss to Washing-a-ton!! We seed lots of cool stuffs on the way like some llamas and some rodeo guys and some mountains. We seed lots and lots of mountains. They were beary pretty.

Next to that trip, we just getted back from ours bacation to Canada and Dad said we drived about 1,275 miles. That was a lot of driving! We goed up into northern Washing-a-ton and over to British Columbia, Canada. We seed some mountain goats and some sheeps and a giant jackalope and some buffaloes!  There was this really cool place called Lake Louise. Yeah. It was something!! The water is all beary blue green and you can see to the bottom from a long ways out! Whoa, and there were glaciers there! We was looking out for the abominable snow monster. Thankfully we didn’t see him!!  After that we goed to the Olympic Park in Calgary and seed where the ski guys train at Cranmore. That was pretty cool. Mom wanted to go to Glacier National Park in Montana so we goed through there on the way home. Mom & Dad was not beary happy. The park wasn’t all the way open and there was lots of peoples and we didn’t see anything. No elks, no caribous, no bears, no bunnies. Nobuddy!!! It was POOPY!!! On the way home we seed some really cool waterfalls and a swinging bridge. Then Dad taked us to Idaho and we seed some more cool waterfalls before we getted back through Spokane. Whew!! That was a lot of stuffs to see!!

When I was beary little, me and Mom moved from Minnesnowda to Hugetown. Her said that was about 1,200 miles, too. That was kinda a boring trip cuz we just drived and drived and didn’t really stop to see anything except a bed to sleep in. But when we getted there we seed lots of cool places.

Well, that’s all of ours big adbentures for now!!

Hi Everybuddy, it’s me, Alex!

I Gots Room for PIE!!!Lessee… where did we leave off? Oh, yeah! Nana & Poppa comed for Thanksgiving!! We had a beary nice visit with them and some yummy turkey and punkin pie!!

The week before Christmas we had some new adbentures. Mommy needed to go shopping in Seattle so we piled into the car and drived over the mountain! It was REALLY foggy and REALLY scary so we stopped in this place called Cle Elum for the night. The next day her surprised us by stopping at FRY’S!! We LOVE Fry’s!! Then we finded the Half Price Books store in Tacoma. It was a nice place, too. On the way home Mommy getted a tummyache so we stayed in Cle Elum overnight again. We decided that we don’t miss traffic that much.

Christmas Village in Leavenworth WA

Mommy getted a extra day off for Christmas vacation so we begged her to take us on another adbenture. We took off Wednesday morning and drived to a place called Leavenworth. It looks just like Germany!! The Christmas lights were beary pretty and we stayed in a cute little hotel overnight. Mommy getted sick again on the way home and we hadda help take care of her. We never seed anybuddy use up 3 boxes of Kleenex before!!

Hiya Yo & Plaintain!Last weekend Mommy gived us a special treat. Our new Flickr friends Yo and Plantain live in Puyallup. It’s kinda by Tacoma so we getted in the car and drove over the mountain again and meeted them for lunch at the Red Robin. It was beary tasty!! Then we all goed to Build A Bear. Mommy letted us get some new stuffs!!

Next week Mommy’s friend, Kitty, is coming from Minnesnowda. We’re so excited we can’t stop hopping!! We’re gonna find some cool stuffs for her to take home to Miss E. & Miss G. & Mr. Scott. After we go take her to see the pointy hills. 🙂  Mommy said we might taked her on a sled dog adbenture. That sounds pretty cool. I guess Mommy misses Rio. Hehe…

That’s all for now… we gots lots to do to get read for our company!

Hi Everybody, it’s me, Alex!!

So… here’s our Chrismuss letter with some updates and we’ll try to be gooder about updating our blog this year!!

It’s been a long time since most of you heard from us and it’s been a real busy year!!

We Gotta Nail These Together

Working at Habitat for Humanity

Last winter we getted to help work on a Habitat house with Mommy. It was really cool!! We getted to play with tools and measure stuff and everything! For Mommy’s barfday we goed to Minnesnowda. We had fun and getted to play in the snow and we goed to the Mall of America. Pretty soon it was spring and we played outside in the clovers and smelled all the pretty flowers. Nana and Poppa comed to Hugetown right after the Easter Bunny was here and Mommy went to the hopspital and getted her’s arm fixed. Her couldn’t use it for more than a month. Nana and Poppa comed from Minnesnowda to help us take care of her. Nana getted to be good friends with our puppy, Macaroon. Great Grandma goed to Heaven right after Mommy getted her sling off so we rided to Minnesnowda with Nana and Poppa. It was nice to get out of the apartment, but it was sad we hadda go to a funeral. Mommy flied back home and we helpeded her out while her getted her arm back in shape.

This is a Really Old Place in AnnapolisThis summer we getted to go on bacation with Mommy. Her had a class in Furginia and we goed, too. It was really cool to go there because we goed to Washaton DC. We seed the Lincoln Memorial, the Washaton Monument, the White House and lots and lots of other cool stuff!! We goed to Mommy’s cousin’s house in Maryland, too. We had a blast there because there are three little boys there and boy, do they know how to play! Whew! We taked a boat ride in Annapolis with them. It was loads of fun and then we goed to a restaurant and eated crabs and shrimps. Yumm-o!!

Moo Cow Don't Bodder Me!In August we goed back to Minnesnowda on bacation and had fun. We stayed with Mommy’s friend in Wisconsin for a few days. We seed lots of cool farm stuff. We getted our pictures taken with sunflowers and soy beans and we getted to see where Great Grandpa’s farm was in Wisconsin. Poppa letted us roast marshmallows in him’s fire pit. That was fun!!

Hi Mommy!! We're Unpacking Boxes!!In September we hadda leave again to go back to Furginia. When we getted home we finded out our apartment getted drenched because the roof broked after Hurricane Ike. That was poopy!! Our friends helpeded us move  and them were really awesome! Mommy’s friends from church letted us stay at their house until we getted a new place. We had fun staying there because they are Washaton Redskins fans and we getted a Redskins football uniform while we were in Furginia. We getted moved into our new apartment but we’re still not quite unpacked yet.

Us With Our SnowbunnyWe had Thanksgiving in Hugetown and we getted to watch lots and lots of movies!! Mommy taked us to her other friend’s house and we played the Wii all weekend long. That was royally fun!! In the beginning of December iIt snowed a bunch and we builded a snow bunny!! The beary next day we seed the Space Shuttle on its way to Florida. That was sooo cool!!

Whew! It was a beary busy year and we’re glad this one is over. We’re hoping next year is quieter and we getta play more. Mommy said we might getta Wii of our own to play with. That would be fun!! We’re looking forward to playing with our friends, Benjamine and Monkey & Timmy and exchanging post cards and stuff with everybody like Seamus & Shortbread, Teddy2Bears, Growler, Mr. Moo, Flt Lt Bear and lots of other cool friends who have really cool adbentures!!

Merry Christmuss and Happy New Year!!

Hi Everybody, it’s me, 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!

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
