Perfect Saturday & Giveaway Info

Today was one of those just perfect days. They don't happen too often and I really enjoyed today! CC and I went to sleep really late last night, we were watching Titanic, then stayed up til almost 3 a.m. reading passenger lists from the Titanic and the effects that were found on the bodies that were recovered as well as photos taken of recovered wreckage. It was really so interesting. I was hoping to sleep late but woke up around 7:30. I played around on my phone for a while and finally went back to sleep around 8:30. AND Charlie laid on top of me....this is a HUGE improvement. Something made him mad and he wouldn't lay with me or let me pet him, so I was so very happy we are friends again! When I woke back up around 10:30 Papa Bear told me he wanted to go get us lunch because he knew I probably didn't feel like making breakfast. How wonderfully sweet was that?

After eating a late lunch and watching TV we girls called Mom and headed to the park. We are expecting lots of rain tonight and tomorrow and then a cold front in the middle of the week so we had to take advantage of the warm nice weather. Andre was with Mom, so they both met us there.
A new portion of the park just opened up and it is so beautiful!
We saw deer tracks all along the trail. I loved all the old big trees. They are so beautiful. Some of the trees had big holes where you could see some of the critters live.
Luigi absolutely loved it! I was afraid he wouldn't make it because it is a really long trail but he did just fine!!
Lena had a great time too. She found a huge stick that she carried and marked our trail with, kind of like Hansel and Gretel with the bread crumbs! Ha!
Andre talked to every single person that passed us! He is such a character. Looking at him you would never guess he is over 55!!
We were all so exhausted after that long walk we came home and took a nice nap! Then CC and I headed to Wal-Mart. I needed to pick up a few cleaning supplies and look for a bookshelf for Lena. Right now all her books are all over the living room and it's driving me crazy!!
I found her a cute bookshelf and I can't wait to find some cute baskets to put on the shelves to hold all her supplies!
~~CC also started her online homeschool, Global Student Network. She is absolutely loving it!! I can't keep her off AND she is doing so well! Her plan is to complete 9th and 10th this year and then 11th and 12th next year. At this rate I think she has a very good shot at doing it!
~~ On another note, I just reached 100 followers!! I was so excited!! I love blogging and I love making new friends on blogger. So, I think it's only appropriate to have another giveaway to celebrate 100 followers! What do you think? Any good suggestions? After all, this giveaway is for you!

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY ANYWAY APRIL,
I LOVED THE TITANIC AND I SPENT HOURS RESEARCHING THE REAL TITANIC LIKE YOU DID AND THE PASSENGER LIST AND READING OLD HISTORICAL CLIPPINGS. I EVEN MADE MYSELF A SCRAPBOOK OF IT...I LOVE TO MAKE SCRAPBOOKS ESPECIALLY OF THINGS LIKE THAT.
YOU NEED YOUR BIG DOG TO WALK IN THE PARK WITH SUCH MEANESS GOING ON TO GIRLS AND WOMEN. EVERY DAY I READ OF ANOTHER HORROR STORY AND IT JUST SADDENS ME TO THE BONE THAT PEOPLE CANNOT EVEN GO FOR A WALK IN THE PARK WITHOUT RISKING BECOMING A VICTIM....TAKE YOUR DOG AND SOMEONE WITH YOU ALWAYS.
DID YOU GO TO RACHELS BLOG AND SIGN UP FOR HER GIVE AWAY....SHE REALLY IS AN ANGEL.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY MY PRECIOUS FRIEND

Isn't great when we have a day where we feel so happy. Your family is lovely and Andre does not look 55. He must have young genes. Glad Lena's schooling is going well and she enjoys it. Have a great Sunday. Congrats on 100 followers.
