Miga necklace

Crafty CJ wanted to make an Olympic necklace so dug through all our beads and came up with this:

She took apart an old beaded necklace for part of her charm, remembered the shrink art I used for another project and made a teeny tiny littl
e Miga to hang at the bottom.

She is so talented! I love when we can
spend time creating together!
I told her someone is going to ask her
"Who brought that from the Olympics for you."

She lit up when I told her to tell everyone that SHE made it!!

Go Canada Go

The girls are really enjoying watching the Olympics!
It is pretty funny to watch CD yell
"hurry hard" at the tv during curling and
CJ yells "shoot" when Canada has a scoring ch
ance in hockey.

On one of the coldest days we had this week of holidays,
we stopped for another very quick photo sho
ot in front
of this mural at a goalie store in town.

It was all I could get in 2 minutes.
Hopefully it'll warm up on a day when Moto-Moto is home
so he can run block/ security for us on the busy street.
I'd like to get all of 'Canada' in a sh
with CD looking so it'll take some tim

I wonder what other great mural walls we have around town?!

Character Dining

We treated the girls to a few Character Dining experiences while on our trip. Moto-Moto's favorite meal was at Chefs de France at Epcot. We didn't tell the girls who would be visiting our table so they were greatly surprised when a cart came to our table, the waiter lifted the lid and there was Remy from Ratatouille!

CD thought he was so cute and loved how he squeaked back to her and nodded his head.

Check out how she is waving at him!

This is one of the few shots on our trip that CD is actually looking at the camera!

CJ enjoyed visiting with Remy too! He spent lots of time at our table (mostly because I blocked him in! We were seated at a corner and to get a good shot of CD interacting with him I pulled out a chair, put it right in front of the cart and had CD stand on it. Teehee)

CJ's other favourite was discovering that we love Creme Brulee!! We hadn't tried it before but since we were in "France" we thought we should. CJ and I nearly devoured the whole thing while Moto-Moto took CD to the washroom.

We had such fun on our holiday! I am so glad that I have over 1700 pictures to help us remember! Plus over 300 photos on our PhotoPass cd, that should be arriving this week!
Plans are to go back in 4 or 5 years. Moto-Moto wants to drive to Florida!!
