Canadian Kiddy Superstar!

So, for the past few weeks I've been talking with representatives for Science Diet regarding Midnight's success with Science Diet Oral Care food. She had terrible plaque and many concerns for the future. Long story short, we used the oral care food and had great success with it. I had written into S.D. for a coupon (yes, it was for a coupon) of Midnight's stories. Now, we have found out that they are considering using her story to promote the food...in Canada, and possibly the US. Debbie has since dubbed her "Kiddy Superstar," while I've added "Canadian" for her potential upcoming stardom.

Like a superstar she is soooo stubborn. She wouldn't pose for us! Could it be because of what we made her pose in last year for our Xmas cards...

She did NOT like us on this day...Merry Christmas!

Kiddy Paw Print

So, last year Debbie and I got a "Paw Prints" for Midnight but didn't get to do it. Well, before Debbie went off on her trip...we "forced" her to surrender her prints! Now, she's "in the system." Check out the photos...
Me forcing Kiddy to spread her little paws...

SNOW in Pearland (& Houston, too)

Who can believe it...snow on December 10th in Texas!!! Well, it happened and that Texas-loving Debbie was not here to see it. So, this is for you, Deb. Yes you are in California, but I am sure this is one day you are missing being home with Kiddy and I. Not quite the pictures from the Blizzards I went through in NY, but the black car definitely shows off the snow. Notice it's not just some flurries...

Check it out...it was sticking...somewhat. And check it out on the tree...shows another shot...

Wish you were home with me, Deb...we'd of had a snowball fight!

The USPS...they "handle with care"

So, what better way to take on the USPS then with this photo. Tamara, all the items "appear" to have come in safely, but since they are all wrapped for Christmas...we'll just have to wait and see!
Handle with care...whatever!

Kristin & Ed get married...

Last weekend we headed over to Canyon Lake (sandwiched between San Antonio and Austin) for Kristin and Ed's wedding. Once I am able, I'll upload some more pics. See a few below...
Cheryl and Calvin enjoy the swing set before we head off to the wedding...

And they are now married...

And of course there was the Alpha Phi pose...

Denver Trip-Part 2

Since we were in Denver for Halloween we got to carve pumpkins and go trick-or-treating with my lil sis. Isn't she the cutest...
After getting back, and a many big beers later, we all took a turn with the mullet...of course Madison looked the best...
We also got to go to her birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese...YEAH!  Who doesn't look good ole' skeeball and some cardboard pizza?! Sadly, we had to head home the next day, but we'll be back! 

And my Saab days are over...for now

So, I'll interrupt Debbie's blogging our trip to Denver for my news. I said goodbye to the Saab after 5 years. It was time...

I purchased a Nissan Xterra. I didn't conform to the ways of Texas by getting a truck, rather I got an SUV. :-)

And now I'll turn it back over to the Hood and her synopsis of our awesome Colorado vaca!

Denver Trip-Part 1

Terence and I decided to take a week off and go spend some time with the family and outdoors in Denver. We were so lucky all week to have beautiful weather! 

Our first night we stayed in an awesome cabin in Estes Park, CO right outside Rocky Mountain National Park. 
The next day we spent driving the peak-to-peak highway and on down to Highlands Ranch to stay with my dad. 

Next day we went to Pikes Peak. It was beautiful!!!!! It is actually a 19 mile drive up from Colorado Springs to 14, 110 feet at the top of the mountain.  
Throughout the week we did some good ole tourist stuff...we toured the Denver Federal Mint, no freebies :-( and toured the famous Hammond Candy Factory, lots of freebies! 

We got to stay with my big sis for a few nights in Commerce City. Below a pic if her super cute dogs, Margie, a Great Pyrenees, and Jasmine, a Great Dane. 
We took my lil sis and dad to Casa Bonita for their birthdays and saw the cliff divers, crazy monkey, and all the sopaipillas you can eat! 

We headed up to Boulder to hike around Chatauqua Park along the Mesa trail and may have gone to a few breweries for some tastings. We loved the Redstone Meadery www.redstonemeadery.com and Avery Brewing www.averybrewing.com and you can by both the brews here in TX!

Honeymoon Plans

Well it's time for another update as I sit here at work eating lunch. So, for those of you who don't know, we are doing a 12-night Mediterranean cruise following our nuptials. Logistics of flights, etc., are not in order yet...but our cruise is all booked! We have even upgraded to a balcony cabin. Debbie didn't want to be down in the "bottom, back of the boat." Why? Well, she didn't want "to be the first ones to drown!"

So we are going on the Carnival Dream. It'll be in it's third voyage at the time, so everything will be extra clean!

Our balcony will be overlooking the Promenade, but I was sure not to put us right over the jacuzzi's that hang off the ship!

The itinerary was one of the selling points for us...sailing roundtrip from Rome. We hit other ports in Italy including Livorno, Naples, Messina and Venice (2 day stop). Plus we get to go to Dubrovnik, Croatia), Barcelona (Spain), and Monte Carlo (Monaco).

We are planning on a day before and after in Rome, so all in all...two weeks overseas should be a great start!

Accusations from Mr Parker...

So, let's set the story straight, Deb was planning on starting "Meet the Kadlecs" long before Dannenbaum's #1 Yahoo, Owen, started their blog..."Meet the Parkers."

Seriously...why would I copy this guy! (That is not me, that is Owen...)

On another note, Debbie made wedding planning progress with her trip to St Louis this past weekend. As I am the bum here, I'll let her do the updating, etc.

Wedding Planning

So, we are less than a year out and I think Deb and I are not doing such a good job updating everyone on the details, dates, etc. Here goes:

Wedding is set for Saturday, October 10, 2009. Ceremony will be at the St Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in St. Charles, MO.
Reception is to follow...at the Bogey Hills Country Club.
Debbie is headed to St Louis this weekend to finalize more details. She is heading this ship and I am the First Bum, not helping much at all! I am like dead weight!

Making Fall

I realize living in Texas that I miss the best season of the year...FALL! In an attempt to fool myself that is indeed fall I have started decorating the apartment. Terence and I went to Michael's to buy a wreath, but we didn't like anything, so I decided to make one, scarecrow and all! 

Meet the Kadlec's Blog Kicked Off!

Hello all...

...after the collapse of thekadlecfamily.com website, we left the internet for a while...but we are back now. Can't say that I am jumping for joy in joining the "blogging" world...oh well.

Hopefully Deb and I can keep this blog going, updating everyone on the upcoming wedding (which just happens to be 1 year from today!), the family, vacations, etc.

Terence & Debbie
