Charlie, Silas and the Bear

On most nights, I tell Charlie a bed time story about he and his cousin Silas skating and running into a bear. The bear gets hurt, and they help the bear get mommy num nums. I wanted to act it out in real life since Silas would be over for Charlies 3rd birthday.

Aside from a slight variation in mammal type, and lack of num nums for the wounded bear, this went perfectly.

Thanks to Andrew for the Gorilla ... ahem I mean Bear suit. Thanks to Unc Scott for the award winning camera work. Thanks to Silas for playing along perfectly. Thanks to Doo Daddy for laughing hysterically. And thanks to Charlie for being my awesome little dude ... who apparently is not too startled by these sorts of things.

After the ice ...

Ice Storm 2009

Here is the view from our front door. Lost power for a week, but it was not that bad, since - our next door neighbor, Jane O. had power, and an outlet on the side of her house. Thank God!

Once we had the heat going, we slowly wired-up the rest of the stuff we were missing. By the end of the mayhem, we were pretty happy with life in the dark. We had the cable modem (yay Internet!!) and cable TV in time for the Super Bowl.

Here is the power crew, coming to our rescue, albeit a little late, and Charlie after greeting the workers, and getting to wear their gear. Are these guys cool or what !?!

Below is the slide show for your ice cold pleasure ...
