My kids have a giant ball like that. My brother bought it for them this summer. One gets inside and another pushes the ball around or down a hill. They tried to get me inside it. Barf-O-Rama. No effing way. My niece has one, too. I don't think they thought about running around and bumping into each other.

FOR SHAME DIOR. For shame.

I wonder if maybe they're saving it as a Christmas Ad/present for me?

I've been meaning to ask how your son is doing this week with school? Fingerscrossed that things are getting better :)


That would be my guess as well, Alex. Something to look forward to.

The little guy is loving Kindergarten and comes home everyday with exciting tales about how much fun he had entering his 4 digit code to pay for his lunch and getting to pick what he eats!

And I tried really hard to think of something to amuse Jodie . . . but apparently I'm pretty boring today. The best I can do is mention that I spent an hour last night covering my middle daughter's tap shoes in duct tape to change the color for a performance this weekend. I was skeptical as to whether or not they'd turn out okay, but all in all I'm pretty pleased with the end result. They look pretty good, you know, for shoes covered in duct tape. :roll:

I did wonder why they didn't want us to spray paint the shoes black. (In the past we have spray painted tap shoes silver for a recital.) But then I thought that they might need them to be a lighter color down the road and I'll be peeling the duct tape off of them in the future.

Yeah, I'm gonna need to know where one purchases such things. I smell Christmas at my house all over these.

Agreed. But, you can always just keep layering new duct tape in different colors :lol:

I just googled giant inflatable balls (risky, right?!?!) and found some options. But I'll still take your recommendation, especially if it held up well.

Hey LS, I just talked with my brother and he bought them at Target last summer at the end of season clearance. I looked online and these are the ones he bought. http://www.target.com/p/translucent-inflatable-giga-ball-blue-green-51/-/A-13715839# The reviews are terrible, but they worked just fine for us.

I like the new pic that I saw this morning on twitter. Ron is laying on the BMW and winking. Did you see that one? Sadly, I can't access photobucket here and I couldn't find it on google images either.

#365 DoR ~ Remember Me Premiere

Well D_E, Jodie, Lori and I remember this day so well. While Rob did the Red Carpet and viewed the movie, we were sipping our drinks in the Plaza hotel waiting for Rob to make an appearance at the afterparty and we got a glimpse of him.

Image

And we got to see this as well. The duckie sweater in all it's glory.

Once upon a time when I was backpacking down in New Zealand I tried Zorbing. It was redonkulously fun!
