Been Hanging Around

Hi all.
So the last week has been pretty nice. We haven't done a whole lot but have had the chance to just hang out. It's been pretty fun. Last weekend we didn't have anywhere to go so we hung out around the house and enjoyed getting to sleep in (well Daddy did; Mom and I got up around the same time as usual). We listened to the K-State game which Daddy hooked up to play from our laptop through our sound system. Other than the game being pretty heartbreaking at the end, it was an enjoyable time. Here is picture of me enjoying a bottle of Moutain Dew during the game.

Sunday we were able to go to a local church. The people were nice but we're still not sure if that's where we'd like to stay or if we want to try someplace else before settling down. We'll see.

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.

Anyway, until next time I leave you with a video of Daddy and me enjoying some Tae Kwon Do training. Boy, Daddy needs to work on his blocking, doesn't he?

As always,

Addilyn Elise

My Candidate has arrived

Stephen Colbert is running for president.

K-State No.25

Hi again adoring fans,

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,

Addliyn Elise

Oooo, and happy 7 month little girl!!

Hey Look

I have a tooth. Can you see it? Momma's trying to pry my mouth open to show you. It's my right side bottom incisor. I bit Daddy on the nose yesterday like usual but he didn't seem to think it as fun this time. I wonder why. Here's a super cute picture of me which also features my tooth. I'm really starting to work on building up some assets so I can afford college someday.

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,

Addilyn Elise
