Just some Mary Jane love...

We cruised on over to our friend MJ's blog and found out that she won't be posting any pictures of herself because her dad 'took' the camera with him...  Knowing MJ like we do, we are inclined to believe that she packed that camera for her dad herself!

Well, we just want all her friends to know that we still have our camera and will be taking photos of Miz Mary Jane whenever we see her at the park.  As an added bonus, we'll only post the embarrassing ones!  Like this one:

Good thing our new camera has a wide angle lens... not saying we used it for this photo, we're just sayin' good thing it has one...
Here's another one with MJ wearing that hard hat:
We've also heard a rumor that MJ has a love affair with a stud on the internet.  We're wondering if he knows what's happening when MJ is out in the real world?
That stud of MJ's can't be too studly cuz it looks like that's MJ and Pippen kissing...

We probably won't be posting too many more pictures of MJ cuz when she sees these she's going to kick our bums clear across Canada!

Sam and his Hats

Hey all!  It's Pippen writing this afternoon.

I know what your thinking...  and you're right - I am darn cute!
Sam isn't a happy camper this afternoon - he's upstairs sulking, er, I mean having a nap!
This morning mom wanted to take pictures of us and here's one of Sam:

He's a cowboy!

and then this afternoon at the park, MJ's mom had to bring a hard hat:

So you can see Sam isn't very happy that I'm posting these pictures but that's what brothers do!

Our first post!

Well, we've finally done it - we've started a blog!  The rumors are true that we have knuckled under to peer pressure from our VERY scary pitbull friend, MJ who has her own fabulous blog.

Mom bought us a new laptop and camera so Pippen and I have no more excuses.  Plus, we figure if something ever happens to mom in one of these crazy schemes she dreams up - we'll have documented proof of her descent into crazy...

For our first post we'll show you the new kitchen cart that mom made yesterday.  The drill was not needed so Pip offered to supervise while I had a nap upstairs.

About a month ago, mom went shopping on her own and decided we needed new appliances.  She bought a black fridge and stove to go with the bright yellow that she painted the walls.  Now when she bought the new stove she went all out - smooth top, self-clean, convection and slow cooker!  The only problem with it is that it is 30 inches wide - the old stove is only 24 inches.  That's not a problem for our mom of course.  All that needed to be done was removed the cabinet that was previously in between the fridge and stove and replace it with a smaller version.

This is the old cabinet:

This is the new kitchen cart:

and here it is in its new home:

Mom thinks she's quite talented!
Now we have to do the dishes and do some general cleaning in preparation for those shiny new appliances.
Thanks for reading!
Sam (the smart one of the family)
