WOW.....Its been awhile!
With having a sick child and life its just been busy....I did remember to take my pics though!!
Here we go folks!!

Today's Picture - Thursday
Week 4 - Day 29

It took place just after midnight so it counts lol!
Went out to feed the feral/stray cats outside and found this darling instead. Poor thing looked confused and very cold. He spent the night under the patio chairs since there was shelter there.
With all of the wildlife rescues I've done even I didn't realize that opossums don't hibernate, I had to quickly check the internet to make sure he wasn't in danger. I've always had them along with the raccoons on the back patio in warm weather but never (that I've seen) in the winter.
Poor baby......

Week 4 - Day 28

The Red Ranger's first OFFICIAL SNOW DAY!!!!
Kind of a clunker considering he couldn't play in it because it was just slushy and disgusting.
We decided to have Movie Day!
Since he was born in Australia I never dreamt when he was little that he would ever have a snow day, something that had been such a huge part of my life, but things happen and we are back in the states and he is experiencing all that I did as a child. In fact the past few days have held a lot of firsts for him and moments to treasure so its the perfect year to do this project!

As you can see the movie of choice was Who Framed Roger Rabbit.....funny sidebit to this. I spoke to a friend on the phone and her son had just gotten done watching the same movie and had moved onto Kung Fu Panda! Methinks there was an awful lot of movie days happening on Snow Day!

Week 4 - Day 27

This was a drawing that The Red Ranger did for school before christmas, it was right after we started to decorate inside. When we got it back from school it spent the holiday's on the front of our fridge.
Today we changed the drawings on the fridge so down came this one.
The story is so sweet on this because it was all about christmas traditions with your family. The lights were alternating rows of red, green and white around the archway between our living room and dining room. He used an artist's eye, looking back forth with each row he drew, to show the doorway, his lights and his family.....including his cats Rory and Chicklet (Rory has the long tail, Chicklet the little nubby one) he even got the swags on the top.
He told me how much his teacher loved this picture so its a keeper all the way around, have to scrapbook it and have a copy for his book as well. He's so proud of it!!

Week 4 - Day 26

The Red Ranger came home from school today with a pile of classroom artwork, seems it was time to change what was displayed in his class and also what we had on our fridge!
We took down one very important paper (see story above) and replaced it with this one.
He is so excited and proud of this one......

In case you can't tell.......its a butterfly with long legs in the back, a brown leaf for its body and little tiny antennae at the top of the page.
I also love that this picture shows some of the magnets on our fridge. The star is something The Red Ranger painted at the pottery place we go too. There's his magnet school bus from school with info on it, the top part of the Shrek frame and our Planter Peanut Guy for our Jericho addiction.

Week 4 - Day 25

Well for us its Sunday, in Australia it was Monday and it was Australia Day.
The 2nd cadet from the left (the one that looks like he's all by himself lol) is my step-son (I divorced his dad but the boys are still brothers and my step-son's mum is my sis now, we've been through so much!).
Its his first year as a cadet, he's learning how to sail!
I'm so proud of him and miss him so very much.......this picture helps though......

Week 3 - Day 24
An actual SCRAPBOOKing picture!
We held a crop at my house for the scrapbook group I have. We had TOO much fun, ordered Chinese food....never got as much done or anything in some cases LOL....that we wanted to get done. We had a blast though, as did The Red Ranger, who played two games of checkers with the lady on the right! Could you say 'no' to that face?
No one wanted to leave and we can't wait until February's! I think we'll get more done then.....I think.....

Week 3 - Day 23
The Red Ranger's first loose teeth and first big boy tooth!!!
OMG!!! How did this happen???
He's my baby!!
The tooth is actually just behind the front bottom right one and is pushing out the front bottom right and the left one too. THIS is just not right!!! My BABY!!!!

Week 3 - Day 22

Hillary Clinton's first day as Secretary of State.....greeted with cheers the headline read.
I like her a lot and think she'll do a fantastic job! It seems I'm not alone.....

Week 3 - Day 21
2008 Flash Back

I decided to look back to last year for this one. We were in Disney World this same week last year....wishing we were now too!
We had arrived the day before and spent the afternoon and evening (with extra magic hours) at The Magic Kingdom. It was freezing cold and no one but us northerners were braving the park, I think we saw about 25 people. Hehehe....had the place to ourselves!
The next day the 21st we hit Hollywood Studios and Our Red Ranger got to meet his heroes the Power Rangers!!!!!
Since he is The Red Ranger, this was unreal for him, I think he was mystified at first because they were standing right in front of him and high-5ing him, touching him and posing him for pictures.
That night straight from Hollywood Studios we went back to the Magic Kingdom for the special night of..........THE PIRATE AND PRINCESS PARTY!!
Super great, loved every minute of it, wasn't enough time to do everything they had going on in one night. We were celebrating three things on this trip - The Red Ranger's 5th birthday was at the end of February so it was a birthday trip for him, it was also his very first trip....two buttons as souvenirs. And finally, DH and I had just gotten married in December. We decided to fore go the 'honeymoon' just for us and do the big family trip together to Disney World.
Really great idea!!

Week 3 - Day 20

Barack Obama taking the Oath of Office.
