So last we we enjoyed some beautiful days, one of which we met friends at Ethyl's smoke house for lunch, play on their playground and in the sand on the volleyball court. They kids played together very well! Charlie was the only single birth child we played with Amber, Tyler and Parker (the triplets) and 3 of there friends that happen be be quads but their brother had a doctor's appointment so they came to play with us while he was at the doctor.

Turtle Park

After the Zoo we went across the highway to the turtle Park, we had heard of it but never been there. It has a few huge and several small Turtle's  you can climb on. Charlie loved it and I was shocked at how well he could climb them!


Today was suppose to be 66 degrees and partly sunny, which screamed get out of the house and go to the Zoo!!  So Charlie and I did just that! It was a wonderful day at the Zoo, it ended up being 76 and partly sunny!

I am not looking forward to the day we wake up to no snow, Charlie loves to shovel the snow!!  I bet in a few years when we want him to he will complain about it!

Mommy needs a flower

Last night Charlie and I were reading a book in the book it talks about making someone happy by giving them flowers... Charlie jumped up and told Chaz he needed to get Mommy a flower, Chaz asked where was he going to get a flower and he said the back yard (this was at 8PM and we still have snow on the ground)  Daddy suggested going to Walmart to get mommy a flower. Charlie was are all on board with that, then  he added "and while we are there I can get a toy!"


Charlie is not a fan of coloring or drawing but yesterday after we did our "school work" I though lets try a new angle with him and asked him to pick one of his critters and then asked him to draw it.

Mickey Mouse Live

Last night we attended Mickey Mouse Live, for the first 15 minutes of the show Charlie sat with his hands over his ears while his friend Norah was all excited and yelling back answers to questions. But as we left the show he told us "that was awesome"

Missouri Blizzard 2011

A blizzard is a severe storm condition characterized by strong winds and reduced visibility. By definition, the difference between blizzard and a snowstorm is the strength of the wind. To be a blizzard, a snow storm must have winds in excess of 35 mph with blowing or drifting snow which reduces visibility to  ¼ mile or less and must last for a prolonged period of time — typically three hours or more.  ~  Wikipedia
