Murder Mystery Dinner

On Saturday night Jack, Charlie, and I got invited to a murder mystery dinner. Our cute friends Staci, Jud, Rachel, and Dustin put it on. We had so much fun and met a new couple Lauren, and Andy...they were great. It was set in the 50's and we each had a character to play and had a BBQ dinner. If you have not done this please do cause it was so much fun! Here is Jack and I in our costumes. I was Tiara Diamond the fiance' to the murder victim and Miss Kansas. The dress I'm wearing is my Grandmothers wedding dress from 1947:) Jack is Chubby Cheddar a rock n' roll star. I ended up being the murderer disguised as my evil twin sister Hope...such fun!

This is Staci and Jud. They played Bobby Sox the victim's kid sister and aspiring actress, and Jud was Johnny Angel a car mechanic and Bobby's main squeeze:)

This is Rachel and Dustin. Dustin was a Russian rocket scientist who did an amazing Russian accent all night and Rachel was Peggy Sue the local gossip columnist.

Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of Andy and Lauren but they looked great!
Our little Charlie did so good at the party...we just have the best baby ever!
Thanks for inviting us to this fun party Staci, we had a blast!

Thanksgiving in October!

Every year the Zimmerman side of my family has THanksgiving dinner in October so that my Uncle Craig and his family can come from Idaho. We love it because we get more family together this way and really who would complian about lots of yummy food twice a year instead of once?! This first picture is of me, Jack, and our little Charlie Bug.

Grandma and Grandpa Zimmerman...Gotta love Grandpa's sense of humor!

This is the yummy dessert spread and I was going to get a picture of the other food, but I was on my third plate when everyone else was finished and cleaned it up before I got a chance:( I can tell you though that it was DELICIOUS!!!

I wish I had pictures of everyone there, but I love you all and it was so nice to get together!

Sleep, glorious sleep!

Last night I got 5 1/2 consecutive hours of sleep! My sweet little angel slept so well and I finally did too...for the first time since before he was born. He sleeps really well at night, usually 3-4 hours before he wants to eat but then goes right back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. It is me that does not get the sleep. For some reason I toss and turn and worry about when he will be hungry next. I truly hope this continues because I woke up feelin' like a million bucks! Oh and I wanted to post a picture because lets face it, my little guy is adorable! This is one of his new winter outfits and I just love it! Thanks MaMa and MaryJo for the money so we could get warm clothes.

2 month check-up

My little Charlie had his 2 month check-up yesterday...he is 2 1/2 months now but that was the closest we could make the appoimtment. He is now 10 lbs. 4 oz. and 23 1/2 in. long. My baby is getting so big! He got 4 shots in his left thigh, 2 in his right, and one oral vaccine! The poor little guy was hurting so bad! It just broke my heart to watch and it wore him out so much he slept for the next 3 hours and didn't even flinch...woke up and ate, then slept even more. I didn't have a car so I spent the night at my Mom's so she could take me and we went shopping afterwards and got Charlie LOTS of cute new clothes and we had so much dang fun! Thanks Mom for handging out with us.

Well it was Charlie's first conference and I think he really liked it. We got him dressed in cozy clothes with his slippers, the conference weekend atire at the Meegan house, and watched the 4 sessions as a family. We enjoyed all the messages that were shared and the wonderful spirit that we felt from hearing them. I hope you all had a chance to see or hear it this weekend.

I got bored yesterday so I dressed the poor dear up and had a little photo shoot...isn't he cute! He didn't love doing it but I just had to. Thanks Mom for buying it we love you!
