Chickadee Thursday

Today, instead of a picture, I’m going to share a funny Chickadee story!

We were watching The Simpsons earlier in the week, and in one episode, Mr. Burns was dressed in such a way that he looked a lot like Colonel Sanders. I commented on this, and Chickadee responded with, “He also kind of looks like the Kentucky Fried Chicken guy!”

She knows now (after much giggling by her family), that they are in fact the same person!

What a difference a week makes, right?

I’m amused that you can see snow remnants in the background, even while Chickadee is wearing shorts and t-shirt…you have to love the change of seasons in the midwest!

Chickadee Thursday

Chickadee and I were outside at 6:45 this morning, now that it’s not so bitterly cold. She had a great time “mountain climbing” on all the snow piles. She doesn’t have that opportunity often around here, but in the last week or so, we’ve had about a foot of snow!

We took our first walk since last year today. Honestly, the weather has been mild enough that we could have been out more often, but it’s been hard to find enough motivation for both school and walking, but now that we’ve done it once, hopefully we’ll make it a regular part of our day again!

Chickadee has been saving her money to buy a LEGO Friends set for months. Once she had the money, the set proved a little tricky to track down, but I was finally able to order it for her from Target, and it arrived today…she was very excited to get to work, and built it pretty quickly!

It’s a really cute set!

Here’s a look at two of the Christmas cookies Chickadee decorated yesterday…she really likes red hots!

This evening, Chickadee and I visited Ryan’s Animal Crossing island for the New Year’s countdown…we all wore masks to commemorate the year!
