That's right; we finally got our tree. We went out on Saturday afternoon to a local tree farm to pick out our tree. Nevermind that it was cold and rainy; we stuck it out and found a wonderful tree. And the best part is it was free!! A local church bought a tree farm last year and was giving away Christmas trees as a ministry and a way to clear the land. We even ended up attending church there the next morning (where some strange boy in the nursery tried to kiss me!!).

Hello adoring fans! You'll have to excuse my absence as of late. I was away from the computer for much of the last week and when I returned I needed a couple of days to recover from the exhausting trip. What a four day weekend! As many of you I am sure know, Mommy, Daddy and I traversed the treacherous highways this past Wednesday in our quest for Grandpa and Grandma Butts' house. While the roads were a little slick and the atmosphere less than crystal clear, we persevered and made it to Kearney safely and with only a minor run in with an eerie patch of wind turbines (they would appear out of no where and then return back into the fog; creepy!). Regardless our car liked the trip; see video 1. Once in Kearney we enjoyed a weekend of food, family, and fun. Grandma prepared an exquisite meal on Thanksgiving complete with my new favorites of mashed potatoes w/ gravy, sweet potatoes, rolls with peach jam, peach pie, cool whip, pumpkin pie, etc. Great grandparents Diamond and Great Great Uncle Richard joined us in Kearney for Thanksgiving Day which was fun and meant that I got more than enough attention to slake the thirst of my budding ham within. Other notable events included meeting a wise, ancient sage in the form of a patchy-fur cat, and a hyperactive dog in the form of a hyperactive dog. It was a fun trip. This week has been fairly productive thus far. We almost got a Christmas Tree but we did manage to procure a stand. We almost bought a tree but it had an alien infestation and as everyone knows once you get those in your house, the never leave. Dad has been gone a little more often that usual at night. He joined a Hapkido school here in town; Mom is looking into joining the community center, and best of all tomorrow's payday. We are looking forward to hosting Christmas this year and making our plans accordingly. Should be fun.
Well, Mama wants to make animal noises at me so I have to go.
We'll keep the light on for you......

After church, we took a leisurely trip to St. Joseph where we ate Chipotle and wandered around an outdoor shopping center. It was pretty fun. All in all, it was a wonderfully relaxing weekend.
This coming weekend should be a lot more eventful. Aunt Courtney is coming up to visit tomorrow. This will be her first time seeing the new place. It should be fun; I know I'm excited already. Other than that, I'm not real sure what the plan is. There has been discussion about going to Kansas City for a Tae Kwon Do demo and to exchange a snow suit for a smaller size (According to Mom that brown thing isn't supposed to fit like that. Oh well, I enjoy it anyway). But I'm not real sure I like the Kansas City idea. I've heard that there is going to be a parade right outside our front door on Saturday morning!!! I don't know about you but I'm not sure I want to miss that.

This last weekend was a fun-filled, jam-packed, weekend of fun, and jam. It all started when Daddy got off work Friday around 3:30. From there it got pretty crazy. We sat around the house for a while, watched a little TV and prepared ourselves for what lay ahead.
Saturday morning we had a leisurely
morning, getting up at 7:00 and leaving town around 8. After three hours of driving, including a unintentional detour through Troy, Kansas, we arrived in Manhattan. Our plans to meet G&G Butts were delayed due to the delayance of said Butts. So in the meanwhile we perused the mall for a clean ring, and some tiny warm clothing; finding both, but delaying the latter. After the mall we went to The Pathfinder where Mommy had her bike seat replaced. The darn thing just snapped off one day. Luckily they covered it since it was indubitably a most freakish accident.
At about the time of cessation for these events G&G Butts arrived in town. We met them at 4th
Street Cafe and ate a yummy meal. From here we scoured the mall and upon leaving managed to take some stuff with us. G&G got me a warm suit, Mommy bought me a different suit (more on this in 15 days), and Daddy bought me two books: That's Not My Dinosaur, and Good Night Gorilla.
Anyways, after this we got in the car and the next thing I knew I was at Java and everyone had empty cups. I just hate wormholes. Well I got some food there too, Applesauce, mmmm. Then we headed to Varney's to check out some K-State gear and garb. From there we ate some Pizza and then, finally, got on the bus to head to the game.
K-State vs. Colorado. It was my second K-State game, and it was a blast. Unfortunately we couldn't get 4 tickets together so we didn't get to sit with G&G Butts. I don't think I could have been given any more attention, though, had they been there. Everyone around us was so nice and every time we would do good they would give me high fives. I smiled at them a lot. I watched a whole lot of football and then
they stopped playing and left the field, K-State had won 23-13. Yippee. Mommy changed me and fed me and the next thing I knew the teams were playing again and it was 47-20, dad-gum wormholes. Since the game started at 8:15 we didn't get home until 1. And by home I mean the Floersch's of course.
In the morning we got to hang out with Matt, Karlene, Ian and Ayla for a while and then we went to Java for a nice hearty breakfast of Biscuits & Gravy/Banana Nut French Toast, anyone who knows my parents should be able to pick who ate what. From there we went to check out Master Moore's new Tae Kwon Do school. He finally found a building that suited him and got his school started. Daddy's jealous. He'd like to be in Manhattan sometimes.
Well after that we left for real home. We were tired for most of Monday but all managed to make it up by today. Umm what else........ I have two teeth now. Mmmm OH and there was another video that I was planning on posting but it wasn't working and I couldn't figure it out, I'll make Mommy or Daddy do it later. Besides, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
So grow fond all of you,

It's been a little while since we've spoken. I've been a little lazy as picture 3 shows. Daddy thought it would be funny if it looked like I fell asleep in mid feed. I didn't. Heck I don't even feed myself yet. Not to say that I couldn't but if someone will milk the cow for you you don't need to go and buy it.
I went to the doctors a little while ago. The prick pricked me again. I wasn't too happy.
Last weekend G&G Johnson came to visit; they stopped by on their way to some retreat in Nebraska (ewww). We had fun.
This weekend we went to Kansas City (again). Daddy competed in the Tae Kwon Do Tournament there. He hadn't gone to this one since he was a green belt. He's pretty out of shape for tae kwon do, but he did well.
He got first in forms although he was going really fast. Then a while later he had his fights. He was in the lightweight division and only had one other person in the division. They had two two minute rounds and in the end Dad won. It was pretty close and Daddy was really tired afterwards. I enjoyed playing with his trophies, they're really shiny. The day wasn't perfect though. K-State lost to KU (who is apparently ranked now).
We tried to tape the game while we were in KC but the darn thing never started.
Next week we are meeting G&G Butts in Manhattan for the K-State vs. Colorado game. It should be fun. It will be my second K-State game already. I'm pretty sure we'll win. They've never lost a game I was at after all. Anyways it should be a fun weekend. Daddy's old tae kwon do
instructor just opened a new school there so we are going to check that out too. And then there's Java, and 4th Street Cafe. Mmmmmm Needless to say it should be a good time. Oh and the game doesn't start till 8:15 at night, crazy.
Well, that about does it for me. I'm going to go take a nap now, cause that's what I do.
Till next time,
