Dragons, Lazy Saturdays and the winner is....

Last night we saw How to Train your Dragon. We have been waiting for months. We read the book last spring and Joel has been reading the rest of the series to Noah ever since. I loved the movie. Well, I survived the movie. Ellie Blue took the 3-D glasses off because the previews were too scary and never put them back on. Noah really wanted to wear the glasses, but he gets so involved in movies that he screamed and jumped constantly, and his Momma was wondering if our pediatric neurologist would mind a late Friday night call to answer the question, "do 3-D movies trigger seizures?" Ellie Blue watched the last half an hour without glasses and with her hands over her ears. Even though we misses some of the movie everyone loved it, or claimed to love it. Disclaimer: The movie is nothing like the book. But both are well done. Here are some of the other books in the series.

Today was a lovely lazy Saturday. One of those were the kids change out of pajamas to put on clean pajamas at bed time. I did very little, but I did have a give away winner drawn out of a bag..... and the winner is Val. Robot 070 will come live with you soon.

Have a happy weekend!

*44, originally uploaded by jillpostema.

It's been a long week. My husband has been out of the country (with my camera!) My parents were here to help, but that is exhausting too, in a good way.

Anyway, I keep making more robots so it is time for some to go to new homes. Leave a comment and tell me:
1. Who is your favorite? which robot you would like to come live on your wall?
2. if you could have a robot to do your least favorite chore what would it do?

An impartial child will pick the winner next Saturday, March 27. Good Luck!

XOXO, originally uploaded by jillpostema.

Love, oh love! Maybe Valentine's day should be moved to spring? I find it so much easier to love people, animals, grass, or our ugly old couch when it is spring time. I'm so happy the snow is gone! I'm so happy the flowers are poking up and blooming! I'm so happy to see the sun again!

This springy little robot is all about love.

Sorry, #39 is not as talented as the other robots, he can't type. So, I'll tell you about him...he is made from discarded packaging and is standing against and old map.

It makes me sad the things we throw away... Someone wrote those nutritional facts on the back of the cereal box , that I am just going to recycle, or if it is slimy, throw away. I guess that is where these robots are coming from...the bits and pieces that we tear open and toss out...stopping to notice.

Robot 40g here. Spring time is such a hard time to be a fashionable robot. It seems like all my robot friends have been squirreling away adorable spring clothing all winter while I was caught completely off guard.

Ellie Blue, sunshine and an impromptu photo shoot

The end of winter is wonderful, people start crawling out of their holes and squint into the sunlight. Living in a small town is wonderful because you can walk around town and easily run into people you know at every turn. The other day Ellie and I ran into my friend Susan, who is, amoung other thing, an amazing photographer. Susan happened to have her camera and I Ellie and I happened to stand still for a second and Susan captured these wonderful moments. You can check out Susan's blog under Dreaming Slippers on the side bar.

It's such a good feeling to know you're alive...

Mr. Rodger's Mr. McFeely was in my neighborhood today! He came to my hubby's college for a lecture and gave a show for preschoolers today. Ellie Blue seemed to enjoy the show...but she thought it was a little loud. Little Miss Blue however did not want to meet Mr. McFeely nearly as much as her mommy did. I liked the show, especially when he brought out the puppets, I asked my friend, "Do you think that is the REAL Daniel Tiger?" He also brought king Friday, but I always thought he was a little creepy - not Lady Elaine creepy, but still creepy. It was a great way to spend a Monday morning. Maybe next week Shera or Heman can come for a visit?
