Wow! What a whirlwind the last week--almost two, sorry!-- has been. I've been potty training like crazy and I'm doing so good! I went one whole week with only two accidents. Mommy said that when I go a whole week we will get to celebrate by going somewhere fun! I'm hoping Chuckie Cheese because I always see commercials on Disney Channel and it looks like so much fun! Last weekend we went on a small family get away to Indianapolis. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for lunch, grabbed some chicken wings for dinner, and then hung out at a hotel for the rest of the evening on Saturday. Daddy reserved a hotel with a swimming pool for us to enjoy and the hotel even had a play area for kids like me. It was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed swimming, eating popcorn in bed, and jumping on a super huge bed.

We have gotten a new tv since the last time I updated too. It's a beauty. I love it and Veggie Tales looks really good on it. Since I've been sick this week, Veggie Tales has been my favorite all week long. I started getting a little cough on Monday and by Wednesday Mommy had to take me to the doctor. I have bronchitis, an ear infection, a rosey red throat, and a sinus infection. I think I'm getting better though. After a couple of breathing treatments--which I absolutly HATE--Mom and Dad think I sound much better than I did a couple of days ago.

This weekend I'm going to W. Lafayette to see my Grandma and Grandpa Benner. I won't really see them for long, but it will be nice to see them for a little bit. A little bit is better than nothing. We'll be leaving tomorrow afternoon and coming home Sunday night.

I will post pictures from Indianapolis and W. Lafayette when I get home on Sunday. Mommy still has to learn how to upload them and Daddy is playing his game right now. I hope you all have a good weekend. Look for some pictures on Sunday :-)

Lots of love to everyone!!

I just thought I would post some pictures for things that have been going on around here. I'm still working on potty training and I have been doing such a good job with that. Yesterday I went all day with big boy undies on and only had one accident. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of me.

Here I am going potty. I like to ready ESPN The Magazine while I'm doing my business :-)

Today we had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. I don't really eat a lot when we go out to dinner. Today I had some fries and a half of a chicken wing. I discovered that french fries and onion ring dipping sauce are really good together.

all of Daddy's dinner was all gone, so I thought I would share a fry with him.

Finally, today we went sledding for the very first time ever. I had a blast. It's the first time it's been above freezing here in Angola since I got my sled for Christmas. After lunch we bundled up (which was a job in itself) and went out on the sled. Daddy pulled me though the yard and then over to a hill. I started out on the baby hill and was at a bigger one in no time. I sure loved going down the hills a lot. We made our own path on the big hill so the first couple of times were no fun, but after I packed down the snow it was so much fun! We played outside for about 20 minutes before I got too cold. Now I'm taking a nap and getting ready for the big game. We're not doing anything for it, just hanging out at home and watching commercials.

I hope you all had a good weekend. And, just an update about that job that Mommy wanted--The school is not filling the open position until school starts in August.

Also, I start at my new babysitter tomorrow. Look for a post next week to see how it's going. I think everyone here, especially Mommy, is nervous about the change, but I'm sure it will be a good one for all of us.

Ready for take off! Mommy is getting ready to push me down the big hill!

I had to get all bundled up before I could go outside. I look like I could hardly move, right!?!?

He's my best friend in the whole wide world. Don't you love our shirts. One Manchester shirt, and one Trine shirt. We're silly like that I suppose.

Until next time every one. Lots of love!!
