Charlie goes Sledding

The other day after it snowed Daddy talked of sledding and like a party pooper Moppy didn't want to go. At like 17 I went sledding in Hines Park, Michigan and this 400 pound man on an inter tube ran me down/sent me flying into the air and I was hurt! My sister Dee was with me along with my boyfriend at the time and his friend, Dee swears to this day I was knocked out for a little while and I can't argue with her All I know is when I open my eyes to her screaming my name and crying I hurt. They got me home and up to our room where I got sick and just hurt from my head to my toes.... for some reason which I don't remember now we didn't want to tell my parents so we didn't. I have not went sledding since!! Well this morning it snowed more and I knew there was no way of getting out of taking Charlie sledding. Daddy had just told Grandma Nancy last night that he regretted not taking him the other day.

Well when we arrived at Quail Ridge Park there were only a few other people around and lots of open space so I was a little more relaxed. Charlie loved it! He was smiling and having a good time. But on the car ride home he said it was scary.
Oh and Moppy even went down the hill with him once but Daddy didn't take any pictures.

Merry Christmas!!


This year Charlie was into Christmas, that was until Christmas got here. I had stuck a few things under the tree at home and he tried to open them a few times and we we arrived at Granny and Grampy's Charlie and his cousin Lyssa grabbed gifts and took off running with them. Then the big day was here and Grampy was giving Charlie gifts to open and he opened one and took off running with it. So I went to get him to open more and the major melt down began! He wanted the gift he had opened and we just couldn't get him to understand that he got lots of gifts and they all would go home with him. Well we tried and tried and then we let him go hide in the bedroom where Aunt Debbie talked to him and they snuck out to open gifts but that was short lived. Then right in the middle of the unwrapping Charlie fell asleep, this was after a nice long night of sleep and sleeping in for him till 7:30. He slept for 4 hours and when he woke up he was ready for some unwrapping!! More picture's soon!

I hope you Christmas was truly blessed!

Day with Norah











well it had bee three weeks since we seen Molly and Norah.. way over due! I was a little worried how the day would go since Charlie woke up at 4:30 this morning and didn't fall asleep in the car on the way to Ellisville. So this morning we met at Chuck E. Cheese and then over to their house to play for a while. Plus the kids exchanged Christmas gifts today and we had so much fun I don't know where the day went!

Air Hockey




Today we met friends at Playtime, which is always a good time. But today I got the feeling that when the kids were playing Air Hockey that they actually were understanding the ideal of the game.

Dino's






Today we went to the Saint Louis Science Center to see Dinosaurs Unearthed this is a amazing exhibit that is very realistic!! Charlie enjoyed walking with dinosaurs, they were very life like and intractive some had buttons you could push to make them come to life. Then we took in the rest of the science center and walked over to the Planetarium and took in the exhibits but didn't go in, we really need
to one of these days but
it was already almost 2 and
an hour past nap time.

Other Christmas decorations











Christmas Tree





So last Friday we went out to a tree farm and cut down a tree. I forgot to take a camera so no pictures of the hunt for the perfect tree but I can tell you it was cold out and you lose yourself in the rows of trees.
Then Charlie and I set on a hunt for LED lights which after six stores we had no luck finding what we wanted so we settled on some pine-cone shaped multi colored ones. Well I hated them so Saturday we headed out to return them and continue the search for LED lights. Charlie wanted blinking ones but we could only find two boxes which I knew wouldn't be enough. So we picked out some nice round ones and a string that says "MERRY CHRISTMAS".








P.S. Timmy did you get my text message?? Love Aunt Ronda

Tennessee Aquarium

We have wanted to take Charlie to a big Aquarium for a long time! The Tennessee Aquarium is defiantly wroth a visit! It was a little pricey but we all enjoyed it until Charlie got too sleepy and the meltdowns began.

Palm Coast, FL

I love Palm Coast , FL you have all the great things the go along with Florida without all the tourist trap stuff! The beaches are beautiful and not very crowded, the sand is different at every beach!
At first Charlie was scared of the ocean again but quickly got over that and loved playing in the water. But he always seemed to have one eye on the water.
