Neil Diamond. No!

Hey out there! So much has happened lately. Mom and I went to Michigan and had a lot of fun. I'm too tired to post those pictures now, so I'll do that later. I have a cold and I'm not feeling my best.

Last week I had a sad good-bye. My friend Kristi used to hang with me while Mom and Dad work. Sometimes she'd  bring my friend Evan with her. We'd have all sorts of toddler adventures: bubbles, riding in the double stroller to the park, cabinet raiding, ball throwing, double diaper blow-outs, timing our naps separately, you get the picture. But now it's my turn to share Kristi with other kids. She's a teacher-in-training starting today.

I have a new friend now named Charlotte. I get to show her all my tricks and talents.

Speaking of talents, I showed off a new sign to Mom and Dad. Last time we were grocery shopping Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" came over the speaker system. Dad started signing along. He foolishly thought he could get me to join in the chorus. So I broke out my new sign: hands over the ears! Doesn't he know Neil Diamond is noise pollution!

Much to Mom's chagrin, last week I woke up several nights with teething pain. I'm working on two more teeth. Geez, if she thinks it's so bad getting up in the middle of the night, just think what it is like to be the person actually going through the pain!

Alden and Kristi.

    Don't you know a father's main role in life is to embarrass their kids.
    Can't believe how big you're getting.

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!
