My Score: Big Bird
I scored 75% Organization, 60% abstract, and 69% extroverted!
This test measured 3 variables.
First, this test measured how organized you are. Some muppets like Cookie Monster make big messes, while others like Bert are quite anal about things being clean.
Second, this test measured if you prefer a concrete or an abstract viewpoint. For the purposes of this test, concrete people are considered to gravitate more to mathematical and logical approaches, whereas abstract people are more the dreamers and artistic type.
Third, this test measured if you are more of an introvert or an extrovert. By definition, an introvert concentrates more on herself and an extrovert focuses more on others. In this test an introvert was somebody that either tends to spend more time alone or thinks more about herself.
You are very organized, both concrete and abstract, and more extroverted.
Here is why you are Big Bird.
You are both very organized. You almost always know where your belongings are and you prefer things neat. You may even enjoy cleaning and find it therapeutic. Big Bird is never sloppy and always under control... pretty good for a 6 year old bird living without a family.
You both are sometimes concrete and sometimes abstract thinkers. Big Bird can be quite dreamy at times and has no problem using his imagination. At the same time he is also practical and can be methodical in his search for answers to questions. You have a good balance in your life. You know when to be logical at times, but you also aren't afraid to explore your dreams and desires... within limits of course.
You are both extroverts. Big Bird gets along with everyone. He makes friends easily and always has a positive attitude. You definitely enjoy the company of others, and you don't have problems meeting new people... in fact you probably look forward to it. You are willing to take charge when necessary or work as part of a team.
The other possible characters are
Oscar the Grouch

Arden decides to join the fun and eat some ice cream!!!!
Today is Carter J's 8th birthday. I can't believe how quickly time has passed. When Salem was born, I drove Paula to the hospital when her water broke. (There is more to that story but I will spare you the details.) But when Carter was born, I was on vacation in Orlando, and I was not happy that I didn't get to be there when he came into this world! We flew home the next day and as soon as I got off the plane, I drove straight to the hospital! Carter, you are so special to us and we hope you have a wonderful day!. We love you sooooo much!
My little girl is going to Kindergarten, but in this picture, she looks like she is going to Middle School. Where does the time go? Arden is just like mom and me. She loves jewelry, clothes, shoes and make-up. Tonight she wore her Girly necklace that Tab made for her and I promised that I would send her a pix, so here it is! She is our little princess! Miss Tabetha, I am sending a picture your way!!
Tonight Mom, Arden and I went to see the movie Hairspray. I wanted to see it for three reasons: Oprah talked about how great it was, John Travolta was dressed as a woman, and I LOVED the older version with Ricki Lake. Arden was only interested in one thing...ZACH EFRON, or "Link" in the movie. For those of you who don't know the name Zach Efron, you apparently have been living under a rock. Zach plays "Troy Bolton" in High School Musical and "Link" in this movie. There are some other big names in the movie also, Queen Latifah, Christopher Walken, and Michelle Phifer. We had lots of fun and it was great spending time with my mom. Love you!

The Meerkats were a treat as usual. They are soo animated and have such sweet personalities.
The main attraction were the elephants. Arden liked them best of all. They are so amazing to watch.
Here are a few more shots from our day. Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the week.
Arden is completey obsessed with High School Musical and since tonight was the Finale of the High School Musical Production at the Cannon County Arts Center, we HAD TO GO!! It was FABULOUS! The talent was great and since most of it is local, that made it even better. I took Arden and Salem to see the production in Crossville back in March and it was spectacular, so I had high expectations for this show. We were not disappointed! We shared this night with my best friend and her daughter and another mutual friend and her daughter.We all wore our HSM shirts, yes even the big girls!!
Saturday morning we got up and got ready to go to the Indy Race in Nashville. Bridgestone sponsors the race each year and they go all out. Food, food, food!!!! It is a large time! This year my mom, step dad, Uncle Danny, Paula, Terry, Salem, KrisAnn, Zach, Mike and I all went together. I had everything ready to go; my camera was in my purse along with the tickets. I had it all under control!!! The weather was gorgeous when we left...not a cloud in the sky. On the way to the race, we all checked out my step dad's new iPhone and looked at the radar. NO RAIN!!!
When we got there, it was hot, but not as hot as it has been at past races. After we walked around, mom suggested that I snap a couple of pix. I got out my camera, turned it on and it said NO MEMORY CARD! I wasn't as prepared as I thought; the card was in my laptop!! None of us had a camera!! BOO HOO!!! No pictures today. I was so mad at myself, but nothing I could do. Just suck it up and go on. After we ate dinner and visited, it was time for the first race at 3:30. We girls stayed in the hospitality tent and the boys went to watch the race. A few big name racers spoke to the crowd in the tent, gave autographs and got some good PR. Would have loved to snapped a few shots, but oh no, I didn't bring my memory card. I am not bitter or anything, I'm just saying. Later, the first race ended and the guys came back to the tent. We sat around for a bit longer and then "Hottie" Dario Franchetti(Ashley Judd's hubby) came into the tent to speak to the crowd. However, he wasn't giving autographs and that was a little disappointing. But Terry managed to get one for Paula. I AM STILL JEALOUS!!:)
After Dario left, we went to strech our legs again and go into the stands. It began clouding up, but still didn't look like rain was anywhere in sight. The fans filed into the track and found their seats, we sang God Bless America, they introduced the drivers, and with about 3 minutes til race time, it began to sprinkle. It stopped as quickly as it started. Whew! We all thought it was over. The preacher said the prayer and even asked for a little "divine intervention" to control the weather. As soon as he finished, it opened up and poured!!! Everyone rushed below the grandstands for cover, but it was raining so hard there was no relief. My mom and I left the pack and headed for the ladies room, along with a hundred other women, and that is where we hung out for almost an hour! The rain finally let up, and we met up with the other poor drenched souls and tried to devise a plan...to stay or not to stay. Finally, we decided that an hour and a half wasn't too long to wait for them to dry the track. So, we got a bite to eat, tried to dry our rain soaked clothes and began walking toward the track. Then I looked back out at the sky and saw another round of rain heading our way. That was it!! We were outta there. So we walked back to the car, and just in time too. It began pouring, again!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, the race was postponed until today at noon, and we didn't go back. Well, my step dad did, but no one else. Mike and Uncle Danny went to see a Braves game, and Arden and I went to church and then to the lake with Donald, Tesh, Kirby, Connor, Wes, Salem, Regan, Tessie, Annaloes, Tyler, and Leo(Tessi's Brother). It was a beautiful day, little overcast, but perfect for Connor. We had a blast and enjoyed spending time with our wonderful family. I Love you guys so much.

- I finally did it! I have a blog. Everyone has been trying to get me to set up a MySpace acct. and I have adamantly said, "NO". However, this seems a little more my speed, so here goes. I am a 30 year old mother of 4. Well...sort of. I have 2 beautiful daughters, Arden Claire and Channing Cope and my 2 Pomeranians, Foxy and Roxy. I am taking on a new job this year at my school. I will be teaching 2nd grade and get to have Arden in my class. I am very excited about this new venture. I have been married for 8 years to my best friend, Mike, who is, a State Trooper and is working toward his BS in Criminal Justice. Shopping is my absolute FAVORITE thing to do. My mom and I find any excuse we can to make a shopping date.
