Ben had Flat Stanley for the week=end.....

 Took Ben to the movie called Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2.. It was a really cute movie.. Ben got to bring Flat Stanley home from school for the week-end.. So here is Ben and Stanley at the movie..
His class has been reading Flat Stanley books (3) so far and on the week-ends one child gets to take him home and have an adventure with him.. Then he writes in a journal about what Flat Stanley did over the week-end with this child.. 
 This is Ben's Sunday School teacher.. and Flat Stanley.. He was learning about Noah's Ark...
 Flat Stanley is now sitting on the chalk board at church alongside Ben..
Flat Stanley at the billboard outside the movie theater.. Ben really liked this movie and it was a lot of fun to watch.. We go to the cheap theater where tickets are only $4.00..We always get a large popcorn and something to drink.. 

It has been so cold and snowy here in Iowa.. You can tell it's getting on peoples nerves..It's -1 right now with the promise of being -25 in the morning.. That's O.K.. I like winter and the snow.. The schools are already having 2 hour delay.. That should make some kids happy, they can sleep longer..  I personally like the snow maybe not the freezing below 0 temperatures but I do enjoy the snow.. Our church on Sunday had a pot luck after church and then we went sled riding.. I didn't go sled riding but it was fun to watch the kids and some young adults go down the hill.  I used to be able to do that but with 3 knee replacements I decided to be careful and not do stinks getting older.. But that doesn't keep me from enjoying the out of doors and walking in the snow.
     My wildbirds have sure been hungry this winter. I feed them daily and they are so thankful... I have pheasants come to the feeder and little rabbits.. I have no squirrels.. 
      Tomorrow it's suppose to be a below 0 day and I will still go outside and walk.. IT's so important to get some fresh air every day in our lungs... I used to tell my kids when they were little to go outside and get the stink off.. They would always say "I don't stink".. I said "Yes , I know"... My kids would always go outside every day and build snowmen and caves when the snow was deep.. When they were babies and little I would always take them outside for just a bit.. put color in their cheeks..
       Hope you are all keeping warm and staying safe..
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Flat Stanley had fun with Ben. If he get to come home for another visit he would like to sit on the John Deere tractor? I forgot to mention the Gold Finches have arrived at our feeders this week. Stay warm and have a great weekend!
