CP DS Game

Category: Journal

Well I guess I should finally blog about this since it has been out for a month now. Over the past year you all I am sure know that I have been insanely busy well one reason is because of this little game.

It's called Elite Force Penguins for the DS and is basically a port of our adventure game style Missions in the on-line world. It features some other mini-games that can be played in multi-player mode and few of our mini-games from the on-line world also make their appearance. 

So far the reaction from the game like our products that have been released has been absolutely incredible! The game has been on top of the carts since release only to fall slightly due to availability. It seems it has been sold out everywhere and has been on Amazon's number 1 list for almost 4 weeks now. 

It has been an amazing experience to be part of all this and gets me even more excited to work on some more titles. So if you every get a chance to take a look at it or if I am around jsut ask as i finally have my own copy. Smile

Winter is Here!!

Category: Journal

So winter it seems has finally arrived here in Kelowna.this far it has been a really mild dry one but not this weekend. It pretty much snowed all weekend and now it is freezing out there with the thermometer hittting below -20  – yikes too cold for our blood. With all the snow and really bad roads we decided it would be best to remain "snowed in" at home. We just stayed inside and kept the fire going and made lots of yummy food, it was a nice calm weekend. 

We did try to get the kids outside to enjoy the snow but that didn't go ever so well. Tristan did not like the wind and snow in his face nor the lack of ability to move. After fighting to get him into his snowsuit he spent 2 minutes out there and imediately said "Tintin go inside". Ah well guess we will have to wait for spring.

Getting ready for Christmas

Category: Journal

Well we're starting to feel in the Christmas spirit around here.  Last weekend we decorated our tree and hung our stockings – we even have an extra set of stockings for the wood stove downstairs.  Tristan enjoyed helping Troy set up the trains around the tree, but seeing as it was the 3rd tree he helped decorate this year, he was a little bored.  Rhys just stared at the tree.  It's a good thing he's not crawling yet or I don't think we'd be able to have a tree the way he grabs at everything.  Last week I did a bunch of Christmas baking with the help of Troy's mom and Grandmas.  It was good to do but exhausting with the kids as well.

Life is good around here.  As Rhys is sitting and playing with toys now, he and Tristan are able to relate a bit better.  All the sudden Tristan wants to play with Rhys – I can tell he thinks of him more as a brother now than as a baby.  Although he does tell me all the time "Rhys baby Tin Tin big boy".  I am starting to see how it will get easier as the boys get older.  They will be able to keep each other occupied instead of both needing my constant attention.

We've been pretty busy – I try to get Tristan out of the house most days to play groups or swimming or whatever will get his energy out.  Troy's been working pretty insane hours, so some weeks we don't see him much, but he really works hard to spend dinner with us and an hour or so afterwards.  Then he works once the kids are in bed.  

This year we're going to Edmonton for Christmas.  We are flying out Christmas day, which means we are able to spend Christmas Eve with Troy's parents before going out Christmas Day to do Christmas in Edmonton with my family.  We are looking forward to staying with Daralynn and Sheldon in their new house and spending time with my whole immediate family.  Troy is flying back to Kelowna a few days after Christmas and I am staying for a couple weeks to help Dar and Sheldon with Annika and the arrival of their new baby coming early January.

Here are some pics of our boys – we know that's the whole reason some of you check our blog!
