Snow, Charles' 11th Birthday

We have gotten SO much snow here in Utah over December and January! It's just kind of constant, but Charles doesn't seem to mind because it means he gets to earn some money shoveling our drive. 
My sister Becca made this board for our family for Christmas and I LOVE it! It shows the love that happened between two people, from NC and WA.
At the beginning of the month, Charles turned 11! He has graduated out of the cub scouts (though he did that a few months ago when he received his webelo and arrow of light), and moved up to the 11 year old scout group.
We sure love this boy and he loved getting a few favorites for his birthday, including several food items (this boy LOVES food! Like his mamma :))
I had to take a picture of this Rice Krispies box because of the sentimental value. We rarely buy cereal, it's sort of become a birthday treat, and Rice Krispies is what Charles specifically requested for his birthday cereal, which was my dad's favorite cereal...he called it 'crisps' in his thick spanish accent, and Charles opens it the same way dad did, by impatiently ripping the top.
As per tradition, I picked up Charles from school and we went to lunch. He choose Subway. 

He requested pasta with white sauce for dinner and cream puffs for dessert.
The Saturday after his birthday, Scott took Charles and his friend Beau and Jane and Nora to Airborne where they jumped on trampolines and inflatables to their hearts content, and then got burgers and pizza for the family. Elisabeth and Annabelle stayed home this time because they'll be going to Airborne next month for Annabelle's friend celebration.
