White, Wonderful, Second Christmas

What a great time I've been having. I'm always busy, but this week has been especially action packed. On Wednesday Mom and I went back to Marbles Museum to play. On Thursday Mom and Dad both had off work so they took me to this place called Hopper's House to make a mess there. I got to play in a blue "moon sand" sandbox and have Dad help me dunk a basketball.

Friday was Christmas Eve. Grandma and Grandpa Stafford, Aunt Sue, Uncle Rob, and Cousin Trevor came over for dinner. I got to eat in the dining room for the first time. While everyone ate their bacon wrapped pork loin, I munched away on oranges and carrots. Aunt Sue and Cousin Trevor had fun calling me "DUDE!" I was so tired by the end of the evening.

On Christmas Day we went over to Aunt Sue, Uncle Rob, and Cousin Trevor's house. I got to open lots of awesome toys there: a drum, a loud trumpet, crayons, a recycle truck, and more.  The highlight was getting my own battery powered 4 wheeler. I'm scared of it now, but surely I'll be up and driving it around on my own soon. When we got home I was ready for bed, but we had time for a quick video call with my Jezewski/Reiber family in Michigan.

On the day after Christmas we got a wonderful snow storm. It was fun to laugh at the dogs playing in the snow. Dad shoveled the driveway and Mom took me down the hill on my new sled.

Sledding party.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
