I love Jimmy Fallon...Part 2

The more I watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the more I fall in love with him. His show is perfect. I love it. This post is dedicated to some of my favourite moments on Jimmy Fallon.

One of the things I love about Jimmy's show is that he plays games with his guests. This first video happened last week. Ashton Kutcher was on the show and after his interview they played "water wars." It is playing the card game "war" but with water involved. It is too funny, check it out here.

This next clip is Jimmy and his guest playing "Elevator Dodgeball" against Seth Meyers and his brother. Haha! I love it! Here it is! The picture below is of when we played elevator dodgeball with John Hamm.

Not a lot of you know this, but I love Pee-Wee Herman. I especially love the movie, "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure." Well, Jimmy had Pee-Wee as a guest on his show. This is a part of his interview with him. One of the funniest things I have seen on his show. But it will only be funny if you have seen Pee-Wee's movie.

I also love that he plays games with his audience members. There is one game in particular that I love. It's called "Models and Buckets." In this game, contestants pick buckets that are filled with various messy substances such as, melted cheese, baked beans, maple syrup, brown gravy, melted ice cream, and much more, in search of the grand prize, $100! When they pick the bucket, the model holding the bucket, pours whatever is in their bucket over the contestants head. It gets pretty messy, but it is hilarious. Check out part of the game here.

I love it when he randomly breaks into song, like he did at the end of that last video. He does it all the time! Haha!

Another game he does on his show that I love is called "Put it in reverse." Where audience members do a skit in reverse and then they show it backwards, which is really forwards, I hope that made sense. Check it out here.

My most favourite thing he does on his show is when he tells at joke or a story and then he acts it out. He does a lot of this during his monologues at the beginning of his show. Here is a monologue from last week that I loved! You don't have to watch the whole thing, just go to 2:15 minutes in.

This next monologue is so funny! All last year, Jimmy would randomly fist pump during his show. He was making fun of some guy off the Jersey Shore. Anyways, the show before, he had made a New Years resolution to not fist pump anymore. Watch and see what happens. Also in this monologue, listen when he talks about the wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William. Haha, I love his impression of a English person. Check it out here!

And then there are his "thank you notes" he does every Friday night. Here is a clip of his thanks you notes a couple Fridays ago.

He does these videos called "Head Swap." They are hilarious, but he only does them every couple months. Here is the latest one.

He also does this thing called "Reflections, with Justin Bieber." Where he dresses up as Justin Bieber. This one is so funny!

I love Jimmy Fallon! Coming soon... "I love Jimmy Fallon...part 3!"

I love Cadbury chocolate. One of the reasons I love Cadbury is because it is a British based company, so that makes it awesome. Also, the chocolate is amazing!!!

So, I was in Safeway last week doing some grocery shopping, (yippie, my favourite thing to do) and I come across this in the Valentines seasonal isle...

Mini eggs! I was so excited. I only bought one bag, at first. Well, that one bag has come and gone, and I am halfway done my second. I bought a third on Saturday as a backup in case I ran out of my second bag on Sunday. I also bought these...

They are mini cream eggs, caramilk eggs, and milk chocolate eggs in one bag! Yessss, I am so glad this Easter candy came out with the Valentines candy!

How many bags of mini eggs do you think I will go through before Easter? And I mean the big bags that I bought, I want your guesses! I LOVE my mini eggs!

P.S. I have never looked at the nutritional information for mini eggs...and I never will.

My Christmas 2010

We had so much fun this Christmas. We spent the Christmas weekend at the Strongs down in Claresholm. On Christmas eve the weather was so gorgeous so we went outside in their backyard and played around in the snow.

I took this opportunity to take some cute pictures of the girls. Hannah didn't mind when I was taking pictures of her, but Taylor was completely ignoring me, I was lucky to get any of her.

These next two are my favorite of the whole weekend.

Then Joe and the kids started making a snow fort. Since Joe was involved, you know it was going to be good.

Then Pop pop drove over to give the kids a ride behind the quad. They all loved it!

Then Joe took some pictures of me and kept working on the fort.

When we got back in the house, this is what we saw...

Taylor wiped out off the sled and got a scrape on her face. I didn't see it happen, but let's just say she rode on the quad instead of riding behind it the rest of the weekend.

On Christmas eve night, we all went on a hay ride and went caroling around the Strong's neighborhood.

We had a Christmas program and recreated the nativity where the kids dressed up.

Then we got out all the food and ate like crazy! Such good food, wings, mini quiches, potato skins, shrimp...and the list goes on.

The girls were very excited for Christmas morning!

On Christmas morning, the girls had fun opening all their gifts.

And of course, kitty was there...

Taylor's favourite gift was her DSi. She played it almost all day.

Hannah's favourite gift was a new tutu. At first she didn't want to try it on, but after tricking her to try it on she hasn't taken it off for very long.

Later on Christmas day, we all went back outside again to play!

And we had a snowball fight! I was holding the camera so luckily I wasn't involved.

Then Joe got back to work on the snow fort.

When the snow fort was done, they put a tarp over the top to complete it!

Hannah also got her face painted by Auntie Niki. She loved it! She didn't want want me to wipe it off but we had church the next day.

I took some pictures of the girls before church the next day. They looked so adorable in their Christmas dresses.

Hannah made this face when I told her to pose for a picture.

It was her last day in nursery. She had her first day of sunbeams last Sunday and it went really well. Her teacher told me she was the only one sitting still and listening during sharing time and that she was so good that she deserved a treat!

That night was our last night and the girls wanted to sleep in the snow fort with Daddy.

I was a little nervous that it might be too cold but they had so much fun and they weren't too cold. During the night, Joe woke up and saw Hannah completely out of the sleeping bags, and Taylor had fallen out of the sleeping bags and was sleeping against the snow wall. I am guessing they didn't get a lot of sleep because they both fell asleep for most of the 4 hour ride home the next day.

It was a short but fun holiday. It went by way too fast. But enough of winter, bring on summer! I might have to wait a while.
