The week in review

This is the truck we rented last week when we had our fixed. I had originally booked the smallest car they had, a Focus, and she upgraded us to the Explorer for free! It was beautiful, and we are both in love with it.

This is the first spot check I have seen since we moved here. This is a "controlled" community, not dry but close to it. If the cops feel you have too much alcohol in your car, they have the right to take it. When we passed, she had a bag on the ground! I guess this is common for the Friday of payday.

Mr. Man writing his own "Santa" letter.

This is Deuce, Connie's dog. As you can tell, Joey loves him!

This was Friday morning. The snow is gone now, but as you can see, Colby was not the only person excited to see it!

The Muppets are in town!

When we went to Yellowknife on Friday, we went to Pizza Hut for lunch. The table behind us was a bunch of Mounties in full uniform, including these super cool hats. (Jen, does your hubby have one?) Joey was so amazed with the hat, that the officer put it on his head!

Oh yeah, but it looks much better on Joey! I think they look at little too GQ on the officers. LOL

That smile on Joey is huge!! and adorable.
And I see that Colby is using the wishbook there. I used to look so forward to that book arriving in the mail as a kid to do the same thing! Have you ever mailed it to the Santa address? I have always wondered if you really do get a response letter!

We mail letters to Santa Claus, North Pole, HOH OHO every year, and every year the elves at the post office mail them back. :)

The last picture (Joey) is simply adorable!

Is that a bear-shaped license plate that you guys have there??!

Valentina said...

OMG! SNOW!
The pictures of Joey with the dog and the one with the "special" hat are priceless. Cutest of the cutest!!! :)

Rob & Tina said...

Yes Gil, our licence plate is in the shape of a polar bear. Cool huh?

Dusty Boot said...

I want one of those polar bear license plates! I must have one! I must! :)
Got any that's expired and you can send? I'll trade you with goodies from the US!

Rob & Tina said...

Gil, mine is brand new, but depending on what goodies you can send we may talk when we eventually get transferred out of here! :)

Dusty: I guess I left out the smiley-face. I do have a spare plate, but I think my Dad would kill me if it didn't go to him first! So unless your bid is in the thousands....just kidding!

Dusty Boot said...

Rob & Tina said...

Gil. Leave it with me. I'm going to see if I can wrestle one up. :)
