This was a request for a doodle of Damien’s character of the same name from his Secret of Nimh fan fiction.  He is the brother of the main villain Jenner from the first movie.

Doodle 652 - A Tree for Pluto

My wife has this plan to record all the different Christmas shows that will inevitably be on tv for the next month and then watch them on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  The first one we caught was “A Tree for Pluto”, a short film with Pluto, Chip and Dale.

Doodle 651 – Unpacking

Doodle 651 - Unpacking

Today we had a lot of unpacking to do, and as usual, it seemed all the boys wanted to do was play with the toys they’d missed for the last two weeks.  We even found one of those nice “You bag has been inspected by the TSA” cards in our bag of all the extra random stuff we had to bring home.

Doodle 650 – Flying Home

Doodle 650 - Flying Home

Tonight we had to flight back out to the East coast and I thought I’d put a few movies on my computer in case the boys wanted to watch something on the flights.  I ended up putting the movies on an SD card instead of my harddrive, and when I booted into Linux it seemed like my battery would last forever since I didn’t have any disk spinning.

Doodle 649 - Turkey Day

This seems to be a worthy tradition, doodling a turkey in protest.  Here’s what I drew last year…

Doodle 648 - Kid Robot Dolls

We headed over to my wife’s sister’s house today and played around with our nephews some more.  I took my laptop over and showed Sam a little bit of how I make doodles on the computer.  Hopefully we can get him all setup after Christmas with his own stuff.  Their mom has abunch of these custom Kid Robot vinyl Dunny dolls all over the house that inspired this doodle.

Doodle 647 - Farmer Pig

Not sure where this guy came from, maybe just being home in Iowa, but he popped in my head and I had to draw him.

Doodle 646 – El Dorado Armadillo

November 22, 2010

Doodle 646 - El Dorado Armadillo

One of the movies that the boys like to watch every time we’re home is The Road to El Dorado, which we don’t have at home.  I always thought the little armadillo from that movie was funny, though I still refuse to believe that armadillos are really…

Doodle 645 – Red X

Doodle 645 - Red X

Today, the boys spent most of the morning playing with their cousins.  One of the games that they were playing was this Teen Titans battling game, which had Red X as one of the playable characters.  I always thought he was always one of the best characters fromt that show…

Doodle 644 - Baker's Square

Tonight we met some of our friend’s for diner and pie at Baker’s Square in Des Moines.  There’s nothing quite like their pie…

Doodle 643 – Family Pictures

Doodle 643 - Family Pictures

Last night I brought the whole family home from the airport so one of the first things we have planned for this vacation is getting a big family picture taken.  We ended up going some place where they fired off about a hundred pictures in just a few minutes, many before most of us were ready.  The photographer kept putting this stuffed frog on the camera to get everyone’s attention even though our youngest was the only one who was under ten…

Doodle 642 - Playing Hard to Get

Today I got to spend the day at my mom’s place before heading to Kansas city to pick up my wife and kids.  My mom has two cats, one of which was playing hard to get all day, staying just out of reach every time I tried to pet it.

Doodle 641 – Eat At Perry

Doodle 641 - Eat at Perry

Last night I went out to eat with my Dad and his wife at the Hotel Pattee in Perry IA which is usually quite the swanky affair.  We really lucked out because the special was a huge cut of Prime Rib with potatoes and vegatables for 12.99 and of the two servers working that night, we didn’t get the one who seemed to be having some sort of miss-medication meltdown.

Today I drove up to stay the night with my Mom and her husband.
