No time for blogging

Things have been crazy, between Devin's birthday, baby shower, Christmas parties, and just life in general I have had no time for blogging. Plus Kodak Gallery is not playing nice with me.......[whining]

So Kylea got hold of $50.00 [insert mad face here], which I believe is too much money for the work she did. But anyway, in true Kylea fashion she will spend it all on other people for Christmas. Well that and Hot Cheetos. It is amazing how I never buy her anything or give her money and when she actually gets money she will spend it all on other people. I guess I am doing something right!

One, two, skip a few

Going to skip several days and posts and go straight to last night.

Chon Som Fear Factor

With your hosts Nat and Alisa. Filmed by Billie aka Mom.

The challenge was to eat a raw fish eyeball for $20 or a cooked one for $10. If you know Kylea you know what she picked.

She may be kissing the fish now but soon she will have his eye!

Here is Nat scooping the eyeball out of the fish head for Kylea.

Finally it came out. The eyes are a lot bigger when you take them out of the head.

Now here are the video's!!!

Still fighting with You Tube on the last video, and that is the best one. Once I get it uploaded I will post it for everyone to see.

Mini ramp finished

So Monday Richard took a few hours off of work to finish the ramp. We wanted to make sure that it was done by the time Devin got home.

Here is the work he did on Monday.
The (almost) finished ramp.
Devin and the kids around the neighborhood did not waste any time testing it out.
Here is an action shot.
He almost decided to try dropping in, but was not ready. I think he will in a few weeks. He now has all the kids from blocks over coming to skate with him, including kids from the Jr. High. I hope it is not to much pressure for him. We will just have to talk about it.
I am excited about his party this Saturday. I will be glad when it is over though. If you are reading this then you are more then welcome to come to the party and have fun playing games with the kids and eating pizza and cake.

Mini Ramp - First half

Devin is getting a mini ramp for his birthday. My friend Richard is designing the ramp and then helping me build it. Well actually I am helping him build it. Jason was supposed to help but didn't make it. We were hoping that he would help but kind of figured that he wouldn't show up. He works second shift and sleeps a lot.Here is how things are going so far.
Here is where it is going to be.

The transitions are cut.

Testing out how strong the boards are so far.

I had to actually work

How we left it.

I think it will be finished tomorrow. Richard had to spend at least one day of the weekend with his wife. I can't wait to see the look on Devin's face when he sees this.
