I happened to see this clip while checking hockey news. Chris Osgood is on the Detroit Red Wings, you last years's Stanley Cup champions but I guess this season hasn't been his best. How quickly you can go from hero to zero. But he is a good goalie.

Our Thanksgiving dinner turned out great. It was the first time using the new rotisserie so I think I can figure out future meals a bit better. And now we have leftovers which is great although I should check since we have extra men in the house this weekend. :)
I finished the Noro striped scarf for Lupe's birthday and had to give it to her right away because 1) I couldn't wait and 2) it most likely will get lost if I waited until her birthday. :)
So now today is all about keeping the kids entertained. Luckily Uncle Carlos is here to amuse the kids and we might be planning an outing tomorrow. I promise to be better next week and post some pictures because I know you are DYING to see the scarf.

This first pic shows Tyler getting his questionaire and he chose to look like a rock star. I also thought he already looked like the real Tyler at this point.
Voila! I need to revise my thinking....this guys now looks exactly like Tyler. They even got the cowlick down pat.
I just finished my visit with the happy parents and totally adorable baby girl. Honestly the baby is soooooo cute and her head/hair is soft and velvety. She-ra relayed her labor story which didn't sound too pleasant but she did get an epidural which I knew she would even though she claimed she was going for the all natural birth before the actual time to deliver.
Anyway, I am so happy for them....and it works out that I had a knitted baby dress all finished. That makes it easier for me!
Costco shopping done already. I loaded up on 2 rib roasts, steaks and pork. I figured that I can roast meat and make chile next week to feed hungry guys in my family.

Today I changed my hotel plans for Vegas. Loop and I originally planned to stay at Paris because I got a good deal and it's Loop's birthday plus she never stayed there before. Well, I got a promotion deal for the Bellagio which happens to include the days we'll be in Vegas. For a bit more, we can stay at the Bellagio and hopefully be upgraded to a lakeview room upon check-in. Keep your fingers crossed. As much as I want to conserve money, I've never stayed there and want to take full advantage of it while I can. So I made reservations and cancelled the Paris booking. Luckily Loop loves the Bellagio so it's all good.

I'm off to find more clothing.

Today I cleaned out our closet and dresser of old clothes to benefit the kids' school. It's time to streamline the place even though it doesn't seem to be noticeable. A lot more needs to be done. The air is terribly dry with the fires going on. Today at the school, all the kids went straight to class...no running around. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the fires and the brave firefighters who are battling the fires.
She-ra is almost ready to pop. The baby is due Nov. 24 but she could go anytime. I'm sure she will be very relieved to have the pregnancy over and done. i heard that she is trying to clean her house out too. Ugh....get some rest instead.

Noro striped scarf.
Normally I dislike knitting scarves because it's too boring but seeing how gorgeous these turned out..I might change my mind for this one. :)
The yarn should arrive within a week or so...that means I need to finish my other projects soon.
Yesterday was a very busy but fun day. The kids had a 4 day weekend so on Tuesday I promised to take them along with Sherri & her kids to Adventureplex. This is a huge jungle gym type area with slides, ropes, obstacles and more. They had a great time running around for 2 hours but we had to stop for lunch. We decided to extend their fun at Chuck E Cheese where they played for another 2-3 hours. Phew!
Hector and I had a hockey game Kings vs. Stars so Yan-Ro agreed to watch the boys. It was a great game that ended up being tied 2-2 at the end of regulation. 5 minute overtime which was dramatic since we had a penalty for half of it and then it goes to a shoot out.
At the overtime, we moved a few rows down to get a better view and escape the very loud fans behind us. Well, we definitely could see better but it was just as loud. It was very exciting when Alexander Frolov made the goal for the Kings and Dallas didn't score. Yeah, we won!
Here is my bruise which covers a large portion of my leg. Yeah, I'll have this for a bit although I massage it lightly so it'll go away faster.

A pair of socks I'm knitting. I'm thinking maybe for my mom or someone else with small feet/legs.
A scarf...maybe ... still unsure. Scarves are just soooo long and take lots of time.
I am working on a pair of fingerless handwarmers which should be my first priority since I want to send them off soon.
So now my hand has been puffy but not broken. Then I notice after dinner, my right leg has a nice sized egg/bruise on it. Okay not an egg because this is much bigger. A hard swollen palm sized raised bruise on my leg. The colors should be more spectacular tomorrow. I tried taking pictures and it's not as noticeable. But tomorrow will be glorious in colors.
So no more skateboarding for me. I don't want to risk my snowboarding season for that. But I can say I tried.
Can you guess what this is?
"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that I'll run away with you I'll run away with you"
Spinning on that dizzy edge I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"
You Soft and only
You Lost and lonely
You Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream
Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me
You Soft and only
You Lost and lonely
You Just like heaven
Words can't describe how much I love Hector and all the times we have shared in 12 years of marriage (today) and 17 years of togetherness. We truly are soulmates and our love deepens and grows with each moment. The song above is the one we danced to in our wedding.
Happy Anniversary honey!

Here is a way the kids like to skateboard. And yes, I get anxious that Josh will crash into my BMW.
I voted today. I went after I dropped the kids off at school. It was just down the street at the senior community so I was hot and sweaty when I arrived. The line was not too bad, about 10 people in line mostly seniors (65 or older) and the room was HOT. I was already warm to begin with but they had the heat on plus the seniors were wearing sweaters. Ugh. It made me sweat more looking at them. It'll be nice to done with all the political hoopla and babbling.
I forgot to post Halloween pictures of the kids. They both has a great time and made a quick pass around the cul de sac. Later Tyler went out again with Hector and Carlos while Josh was content to hand out candy to the other kids.
We have a hockey game tonight against the Ducks which is always a rowdy game. Hopefully the Kings will find that inner spirit to win...cuz they need it.
Last night Hector and I lay in bed talking about the silly things we've done together. We were laughing like dorks reminiscing on events which I'm sure other people will think stupid or not funny at all. But hey, after being together for 15+ years it's nice to be able to laugh and still talk. Hector is my silly cheeseboy and I love him. Now stop poking me! ;p
