End of the night takedowns

When I was a little younger, I used to always hate to leave a party early, just in case I missed anything. I'm old enough to need my sleep now, so it doesn't bother me so much anymore, but I still wonder what I might have missed out on.

If you're the same, and you were at Heidi's birthday party last weekend, I was lucky enough to film the second last event (the sucking all the helium out of the balloons moment didn't come out so good in the pitch darkness of a rainy night), so you no longer have to feel like you missed out.

Apologies in advance for the drunken slurring of words - to be honest I had no recollection of this incident until I reviewed the camera the next day. And watch with amazement as the talent of Ms Klassen shines through......

The Hills Update

I never realized these little snippets existed until today, so if you ever miss The Hills one Monday night, check them out. They cut out the adverts, show almost as much of the show, and only take up 5 minutes of your time. Maybe I can persuade the wife to watch the shortened version from now on? Somehow I doubt it....

My Favorite Wedding Pic


0174_IMG.jpg, originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.

Of all the great pics we got in our album, this is probably my favorite (although this one runs it close). We managed to get a new photo printer the other day, and it has the ability to print out in 13x19, so this is going to be my first attempt (and got some hanging things as well, so I might actually finally, 12 months late, get some stuff on my walls in the office at work). The paper arrived today (that stuff isn't cheap), so it'll be on my project list for this weekend (along with the less fun task of working out why our washing machine has started to create huge puddles of water in the basement, urgh).

What's been going on?


Not too much to be perfectly honest. It appears that a large percentage of the women of child bearing age in our company all got together and planned a synchronized pregnancy, we got to spend the whole day with Holly and Meaghan yesterday, followed by dinner at North with the usual suspects, and we've been on a bit of a shopping blowout for the new year - I got my first new snowboard since I got here in 1997, and we ordered Heidi's new car - delivery won't be for a couple of months though (on the car, the snowboard is in my possession). I might even try and take a day off work next week to rendezvous with the wife in the mountains to see if I can actually snowboard on something that isn't going to restrict my speed to 5 miles an hour. Accidents are expected.....

Heidi's Birthday Party

Originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.
It was a good one (as always). I was relieved of my cooking duties this year, and we got the help of Maggianos to provide the food for the troops. Of course, we totally forgot the portion sizes when we ordered, so I think everyone went home with a big bag of food, and the fridge and freezer are now fully stocked for the foreseeable future.

Fynn made it through her first party, although I think by the end it all got too much for her. We also managed to successfully recreate the Purple Hooter experience, so that made me and Ash happy anyway.

The rest of the photos are up on Flickr here, although I did totally forget that I had put the camera on charge until later in the night.....

Lauren's Bachelorette Party

Last week was Lauren's bachelorette party, and as I'm a boy, I know nothing about what happened - my role (no, not stripper, although of course I volunteered) was kept as designated taxi driver for the wife and sister for the night, ,which was fine by me - I got a night on XBox, accompanied by my faithful servant, KFC for one.
Anyway, it sounded like everyone had a blast (and Lauren avoided doing too many shots). Heidi posted some pics on Flickr if you want to check them out.
