Handy Drew Translator

If you happen to be talking to Drew and don't understand what he is meaning, then this list might help:

Nom Nom Jeep = dinosaur
Up Down Fish = carousel and 1 Fish 2 Fish
Fiss = fish
Ch KIN nuGETs = chicken nuggets
Fiza = fries
Nom Nom = food
Bebe = Courtney
DennWuke = Jenn and Luke
Mimi = Amy
NanaPoppa = Nana and Poppa
D = Drew
Humma = Grandma
Hummpa = Grandpa
DunDunDa = Universal
Oh No Meat / No Meat = Mickey Mouse
PooPoo = trains
Hello Helocop = helicopter 
Bedo Bedo = amubulance or fire truck
Duck = all birds (knowing the differences)
NudNuden = big machinery
Whee = slide
Bearplane = airplane park
HanYA! = Anya
Melmo = Elmo
Cat = Daniel Tiger
Grrrr = Special Agent Oso
Doc Doc Who = Doctor Who
SAaMmmm! ( in Welsh accent) = Fireman Sam
HALPPPP!!! (in Welsh accent) = Help
TickTock = tongs or crocodile/ alligator
Hook = Jake and Neverland Pirates
To Much = empty
2 more minutes = I don't want to
Bird / duck juice = apple juice with big bird on box
BudenBuden = car (though only his cars, not anyone else's)
JumpBalls = gymnastics 
Epic =Eric
BobpkoRN = popcorn
Ride Minions = Dispicable Me ride @ Universal
Ears = headphones 

If an item is someone else's, then it is one word, ie - MimiTruck, NanaPoppaCar, MommaDaddyD'sHouse.

Also, he will start over his entire sentence or thought if he gets something wrong so it comes out weird. "D Bebe Epic dundunda." Head shake quickly, "D Bebe Epic DennWuke MommaDady MommaDaddyCar, dundunda." This normally happens when he is thinking faster than he can get the words out or translate them into words. He also cracks himself up while talking so there might be a hysterical maniacal laugh in the middle of a sentence, which means he starts the sentence over.

Drew Christmas Photoshoot

We spent Christmas at my parent's house this year. While we were up there I got a chance to get some pictures of Drew out in the woods. This is one of my favorite setting ever. I love the woods with all the leaves on the ground and the trees still green. This is one of the perks of being in Florida for the holidays. It had rained all day the day before, so the woods smelled the way they smelled when I was little.  Drew absolutely loves being out in these woods, too.

Doctor Who Birthday Party

For my birthday this year we celebrated Doctor Who style. It also happened to be the 50th anniversary. It was a full out party with costumes encouraged.

I sent out Doctor Who inspired invitations. They were inspired by the invitations The Doctor sent The Ponds and River Song. The insides looked like the one below, except with our home coordinates and the date of the episode. The other side had the real party information. I also made the stamps, using important things from the shows and adding the "postmarks" for the related dates in time.

We decorated the door to look like the TARDIS. This works really well for our house because it is bigger on the inside, or if you are a Clara fan, smaller on the outside.

Our front mantle was decorated as a memory shelf of things we thought The Doctor would want to remember. There were pictures of Craig,Sophie and Stormaggedon, Dark Lord of All. There was a badge from Martha, his name tag from working in the store, and a note from Clara telling him what the wifi password was. There was also a complete work from Shakespeare and a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone (good ol' J.K.). The last book was from Agatha Christie.

The other mantle had River Song's blue journal, Van Gogh's Sunflowers (for Amy), River Song's invitation to the party, and the Afterward by Amelia Williams.

River Song did stop by and leave a message for The Doctor, but we aren't sure where in her timeline it occured.

BAD WOLF also suddenly appeared on our back door. It created itself and spread itself through time and space.

We had lots of fun food for everyone. Some of it was there to keep us from screaming at the tv during the episode.

To watch the episode you had to try and observe "Silence in the Library." Needless to say, with all the squealing and screaming during the episode, we didn't exactly accomplish the silence.

We did have some cute Doctor pillows if you needed an extra cuddle during the episode. Since we didn't know how much torment Moffat would put us through, this seemed like a good idea.

After the episode we took pictures of the costumes that showed up:

Chloe couldn't get into the Doctor Who spirit, but that was ok, she celebrated Harry Potter style.

Paul and Ashley came as Rory and Amy Pond.

Jenn was our 9th Doctor.

Courtney and Eric were our other Amy and Rory Pond.

AJ and I were Rose and 10.

I love this picture of AJ.

 This was one of the best birthday parties I have had in a really long time, actually it was the only party I have had in years. I am so glad this was the one we chose to celebrate. Though I was surrounded by almost all the introverts in my life, think everyone had a good time.

Halloween 2013

I know I am late getting post about our Halloween posted. Life has just been busy, and I have been holding on for the ride. So, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are lots of pictures, and a few words.

On October 29th, Drew had a Halloween party at his gymnastics studio. It was adorable seeing all the kids in their costumes. Drew loved having free play and playing with the other kids.

On October 30th, Courtney and I took Drew to a local petting zoo, Green Meadows Farm with our church group. It was a fun day. I am loving this tradition we have started.

We went Trick-or-Treating on the 31st at Mrs. Joy's house.

Happy Halloween!
