Christmas Shopping

There is no sign of a recession around me this week. On my lunch breaks I've stopped by the mall and other big box stores and it's always booming. The parking lots are packed (love the parking when people can't see the lines), the stores are busy, the cash registers all have lines of people.

Maybe everyone is treating this as their last blast and planning to tighten up when the credit card bills arrives next month?

Molly Getting Ready for Christmas at Oma's House

AJ's daily Twitter updates.

  • 07:22 Still very cold, and now I have the hassle of fresh snow as well. The trip to work was a little slower, and a little more slippery.
  • 07:37 Why do people treat a Smart Car like it's not a car? I always get asked stupid questions like... Can you drive it in the winter?
  • 11:16 What a morning, two dead PC's on the Production floor and a critical one in the SMT Rm is making a "clicking" noise. Headache?
  • 13:01 I just picked up Tales of Vesperia for Xbox 360. Why am I addicted to JRPG's lately?

  • 11:16 I've always had a blog as part of my website but starting today the blog is the website. I'm done with editing and managing HTML.

  • 11:46 It's warmed up to -19C (that's only -28C with the wind chill).
  • 14:23 Pat and Darlene are heading to Vancouver for a few days. Pat's scheduled to get a PET Scan. Let's all hope it comes back clean!

It's too cold

This morning I left the house and the outside temperature was -28. That's cold, so cold that...
  • My beard started to ice up in the 25 feet between the front door and the car.
  • My Smart car groaned and complained for a second before starting.
  • Piggy wimpered every second she was outside.
  • Jill woke up miserable and is still upset that it's so cold outside. I'm always amused that she treats the weather like something Kelly and I are in control of.
  • It's temperatures like this that cause problems in the house. I'll be surprised if tonight somewhere in the house a water line isn't frozen up.

Molly's dance recital #3

Molly's Oma has Molly on Sunday nights and Mondays, and has generously signed Molly up for some local kids programs on Monday afternoons for the last few years. In the summer it's been sports for little kids and in the colder months it's been dance classes.

Molly just finished her third session of dance classes and each session always ends in a little dance recital. This time around Kelly and I couldn't make it, but Oma grabbed the video camera and shot the 30 minute adventure in free dance for our viewing pleasure.

Last night before slipping off to sleep Kelly and I watched the DVD and laughed our butts off. Anytime you get a group of 5-6 little people in dance outfits bouncing around to music there is a lot to laugh about. Here are a few of the most memorable moments.
  • Little boy who just wanders off whenever he feels like it
  • Little girl who kept turning to her mom in the audience and yelling "take a picture of me!"
  • Normally laid back dance instructor who's trying to keep a smile on her face as she keeps loosing control of the kids.
  • Molly's free dance moments with the ballerina twirls and hops.
  • And finally, Molly stopping and posing for photo-ops whenever she felt someone might be taking a picture of her.
Needless to say it was a joy to watch and I'm sure our laughing almost woke up the rest of teh house.

A new blog for a new year

Well our domain of 24bloom.com used to be a one stop location for friends and family to keep up to date on the Jensen family activities, but with a toddler it's been a little harder to keep it up to date. So today I flipped the site over to a blog, a plublishing method that will be easier to maintain and faster to update. I hope you enjoy the new format and look?

There is a feature of the blog that allows a small group of email addresses to get automatic blog updates via your email. So, if your a huge fan of us (ha ha) drop me your email address and I'll make sure you get on the list.
