Busy "Beavers" at work!

Hey Bloggerettes,

We had an easier day today but covered a lot of ground. Robin slept in until 7:30 this morning - what's wrong with her???

I forgot to tell you a funny story about yesterday morning. Of course Robin was up early showered, dressed and headed out to breakfast. I got ready as quick as I could,considering it was barely daybreak - when I arrived at the restaurant to see if Robin was still there I noticed that I had the "Do not disturb" sign clutched in my hand along with my room keycard! I had only meant to hang it on the door outside so I carried it with me all day!

We surprised our rep at the Creative Imaginations pre-show gala today by dressing like Canadian Beavers. Their theme was "Wood" because they were introducing their latest product "wood sheets" that are used like paper. We were one of the 20 retailers able to buy it early. It's already in our store - check it out! They encouraged retailers to dress like lumberjacks - we thought beavers would be much more appropriate. We wore Canadian Olympic shirts, mitts and hoodies with our costumes. When we entered the ballroom in costume some American women thought we were woodchucks or chipmucks - what's with that???

Enjoy the pics.

I was showing my husband the "Beavers". He sat on the couch just "chuck"ling. Too cute. Trust our American friends not to know about the Beaver!
