Snow Biz 2010 is on January 30th. For more info or to get involved call 715-832-1782.

The photo shoot for Christina went well. As soon as I made it to Zacho's, Christina saw me and she was a daddy's girl. I did not have the opportunity to meet everyone there and thank them. Things happened very fast and I was trying to get a grasp on everything. Next thing I know the pictures are done.

Angela made everyone smile as she imitated a chicken to get Christina to smile. She turned several shades of red. If Christina smiled and had her head up, it was worth it.

I will post pictures when I get my hands on some.

Snow Biz Photo Shoot 
Monday, October 19, 2009, 07:52 - General, Christina

I can give everyone the quick update on what has been going on.

Christina is a featured child for UCP. Yeah Christina!!! We will be going to as many UCP activities as we can. Today is a photo shoot for Snow Biz. I am unsure of the date and will post about all the events I can with details, when, where, etc.

Christina has been sick the last few days. Runny nose and feeling kinda blah. Overall her mood has been good. School is going very well and she is making a lot of progress.

Support your local UCP. For us the site is Or, you can go to for the national site.

UCP Picnic

Today we went to the United Cerebral Palsy Picnic. The picnic was held at the Lake Altoona pavilion. We had a lot of fun.

Christina was a daddy's girl today. We'll get into that later. Christina and I walked, picked out the color of nail polish for Angela, threw balls, and joined the group with music. Christina was on my shoulders as the kids and a few of us adults danced in a circle together. We also sang lead by one of the UCP kids. We also took part in the cake walk. Christina really enjoyed bouncing around as we went in a circle. She was not fond of stopping when they called a number. We came home with quite a few treats.

Dinner was delicious and Christina ate well. At first she had issues when Angela sat down by us, then she decided it was mommy time and Angela had to feed her.

As dinner wound down and the raffle started, Christina's lack of nap caught up with her and she started to get whiny. We left shortly after that.

I'd like to say thank you to United Cerebral Palsy of Western Wisconsin(UCP).

For the reference about Christina being a daddy's girl. I went to Corey's bachelor party yesterday. I left around 08:30, stopped home to shower when she was napping and then came home at 03:00 this morning. Christina seemed to have missed me and made it known she wanted daddy today.

Another thanks goes to Angela, she went out last night also and did not get much sleep either. Angela got up this morning with Christina and let me sleep. Thank you honey!!!

Date With Dad

Christina and I went to the Date With Dad scavenger hunt hosted by the Eau Claire Area School District Head Start/Early Learning Programs, the Family Resource Center, and Western Dairyland Head Start.

It was fun. Christina had a great time while we hunted for nature items in the park. She also thought it was hilarious to take my name tag off and throw it on the ground. We found all sorts of stuff, like a flower, mushroom, spider web, and a squirrel.

We also touched the water in the creek. Christina did very well reaching for the water by herself.

The next outing is at the apple orchard.

Nap Time

Christina and I had some disagreements today. She would not eat breakfast for me nor lunch. We went for a short walk.

For nap time I opted to hold her and sit in the chair. It has been along time since we sat together to relax Christina is asleep on my lap now, I'm tired, and I can't sleep.

Daddy and Christina cuddle time, I can go without sleep for that.
