They become fearless Dogateers when thieves break in and steal every present, every ornament, and even the yuletide tree.

Winterland Review – great selection + free shipping

Blue LED rope light - Winterland

Check out the blue rope light I received from Winterland. The holiday light is powered by energy efficient LED’s — about one LED every inch. The rope light is 18 feet in length, so that comes to about 216 LEDs. It’s been raining every day around here, so I have not had a chance to install it outside yet. But that has not stopped by son from playing with it (see photo above).

In addition to seeing the film again, we had dragon snacks (popcorn, cookies, fruit snacks, Goldfish, juice boxes) and did some fun activities. Actually, we ate snacks while we watched the movie and then did some activities after the film. The whole family had a good time. We loved the movie, enjoyed the snacks, and had fun with the dragon activities.

Nature: Invasion of the Killer Whales – a fascinating documentary for everyone

Nature: Invasion of the Killer Whales

Here’s something to watch this week — Nature: Invasion of the Killer Whales, which will air at 8pm on Wednesday (November 19th) on PBS. The film is a fascinating documentary about how the change in the Arctic is causing a shift in power at the top of the world. The polar bears have been the top predator in the North for a long time. But now Killer Whales have invaded their turf. I enjoyed watching Invasion of the Killer Whales and I think this is something most parents will like too. The documentary isn’t funny or full of action, but I think many kids will find the film interesting. And it’s definitely educational. Dads and moms will appreciate that. If you miss Nature: Invasion of the Killer Whales this week, you can purchase the DVD or watch the film online in the near future.
