11/30 - Please hold, Snakie.

Snakie thinks the cords from my phone and my headset are little snake friends.  Hisssss!

Snakie is a fruit surfer.  Pineapple waves...  Wheee!

11/29 - Olivia thinks it's beginning to look at lot like Xmas

This is the building across the plaza from ours.  What a big tree!

Olivia and Linda found a perfect pink flower at lunch.  Linda says, "Hi!"  Olivia says, "Oink!"

11/26 - Glitter Friday

While the rest of the world hit the stores, we busted out the glitter glue and sequins.  Of course, about as much got on the twins as their papers, but sometimes art is messy.  It is almost always better than meetings.  :)

11/25 - Happy Thanksgiving!

Before we start eating our Thanksgiving feast, we go around the table and say one thing for which we're thankful.  Lil' Guy said, "I'm thankful to have wonderful moms and a nice sister."  Awwww.

I am thankful for good friends and family, the (new) roof over our heads, and that we have plenty of food on the table.  I'm also thankful to have a little helper in the kitchen!  Here's Lil' Gal, basting the tofurkey.

11/24 - Littlest Rabbit's hat trick

Some magicians pull a rabbit OUT of a hat. Mommy put a rabbit IN a hat. Ta da!

Ed's kids came to the office today, and his daughter made a little nest for Littlest Rabbit with my putty. Doesn't she look cozy?

11/23 - Zebra sees someone that says "Ho ho ho!"

Zebra found a stripey-tailed friend in the window of the art store.  We waved hello, and then went in to work.

Guess who we saw at the food court today?  I guess even Santa gets hungry.  He left in a black limo driven by an elf in a Santa hat!

11/22 - Pony finds fall leaves and a big rain cloud

It sure looks a lot like Fall around here...

Pony was chosen specially when I requested a toy brave enough to handle today's onslaught of meetings. Lots of meetings require lots of notebooks and note-taking.  Pony is using the notebooks as stairs. Go, Pony, go!

11/19 - Santa Bear and the great Beanie Baby contest

Santa Bear likes to help.  Look at all the donations for the Food Bank!  Ho ho ho!

This gumball machine is having a contest.  The prizes are little stuffed animals. We did not win, but we did get to have lunch with David.  That's a nice prize!

Shrek and a little tasty friend were on the side of a bus.

11/18 - Meena-Cakes!

Meena gives a thumbs-up to this odd machine.  It looked like a robot grasshopper to me, but it must be for some kind of construction work. Could it be a sleeping cherry picker, all folded up?

The video doesn't work for us at the office, but the photo of the real robot grasshopper is cute!  http://www.geekalerts.com/robot-grasshopper-video/ (Thanks, David!)

They were giving out free snack samples in the cafeteria today in these little wrappers.  (Yes, I had two.)  Meena pretended he was a cupcake!

11/17 - Blue Bear bites brussels and butternut

Blue Bear liked the BART ride today.  I did too -- earlier delays meant lots of free seats!

They had veggie risotto at the cafeteria today.  Blue Bear is only eating the things that start with the letter B.  BITE!

11/16 - Ostrich likes steam

She found this picture of the steam engine we saw at the KSW Roll Out, and wanted to go for a ride.  We'll have to bring her next time.

Ostrich is pretty like a flower... But she smells like a bird!

We saw a really weird fruit at the sandwich shop today!  It looks like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha's_hand.  They told us it tastes like lemon, but we didn't try it.

11/15 - Breakfast bar bugs

Cricket and Grasshopper think blueberry breakfast bars sound yummy!  Me too.  What did you guys have for breakfast today?

The bugs are excited about all the nice green things to eat for lunch. I wish we had time to eat ouside in the sun!

11/12 - Torta wants to fly

If caterpillars can grow wings and fly, why not spiders?  Why not us?

Bob the Pirate/Builder left his pirate accessories at my desk, but came back for them later on. He's being a pirate at Robert's desk now.  (We take turns playing with him -- Bob, not Robert.)

Torta had fun playing pirate until the parrot got tangled up in her web.  Squawk!!

11/11 - Snakie necklace

Snakie sees sunshine and plenty of parking. Looks like a nice day for a holiday...

Snakie is pretending that he is a pirate necklace for me to wear.  Not too tight, Snakie!

Snakie and I would like to say thank you to all the brave men and women that keep our country safe.  We may not always agree with the politics, but we always support YOU.  Thank you.

11/10 - Snakie in the grass

Slither, Snakie!  Slither!

Snakie says, "It's a wrap!"  He's helping me pick out the slimy eggplant.  Bleah.

11/09 - Blue Jet dreams of flying high

He wants to fly above the skyscrapers.  Me too.

Blue Jet takes off from Linda the runway.  Get ready for take off!  (Linda says hi!!!)

11/08 - Twins and their toys

The twins lined up their Madagascar penguins, superheroes, and rhinos with the pink chair and were so excited.  "Look how cute they are!  Mommy, take a picture!"  So I did.

Back to work tomorrow.

11/04 - Antelope tells Linda a secret

I wonder what he said!

Later, he gave Space Fish a kiss.  (At least, we thought it was a fish.)

11/03 - Cornay watches the Giants parade

There's a big parade for the city's baseball team.  They won so many games that they're the best team in the country.  Cornay and I watched on the computer at work.

Cornay says "Meow! Hello, Kitty!"  She thinks my pink pen is a friend.  Awwwww.

The twins sent *ME* photos today, of the Pirate Snoopies and themselves!

Snoopies say, "I love you!"

Arrrrrr! Aye aye, Captain!

11/02 - Bouncy pouncy Tigger

Tigger did lots of bouncing this morning while Mommy restarted her PC a million times.  He bounced right into a glass from Mexico.  (Thanks, Rosemary!) Who do you think had more fun?

Tigger found a big stretchy band at the health benefits fair today and is using it to bounce and slingshot himself around my cube.  Hey!  Stop that!

Now he's singing...
The wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is Tiggers are wonderful things. 
Their tops are made of rubbers
The bottoms are made of springs.
Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!!!
The wonderful thing about Tiggers 
Is I'm the only one 
I'm the only one !

11/01 - Waiter, there's a spider in my fruit salad...

I don't know what these workers were doing with this ladder, but it was super tall!  Tonno wanted to climb, too.  (Mommy did not.)

Waiter, there's a spider in my fruit salad...  Oh!  It's just Tonno.  Hopefully she likes melon, because I do not!

From Michael:  Here is a pic of someone that might be a friend of Tonno's. I almost ran into him/her on a run yesterday.

ps.  Yay Giants!!!  Yay city!! JOURNEY!!!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dejm8vJ2pUA&feature=share
