Locks, Garbage, Beetles, and Bowling - All in a Weekend's Work

I, Toddler Houdini, mastered the Safety 1st child locks in the kitchen. I could open them faster than Mom. Then the most horrible thing happened. Dad upgraded the locks to another kind. I pull on them and cry because I don't know how to open them yet. 

On Friday, we met up with Elianna and her Mom at the Natural Science Museum. I loved it. I love snakes and they have a lot of them there. We went to story time and we got to see a real corn snake, just like the one we met in Saginaw. They also had a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach which we all touched. Elianna and I also played with Bess Beetles. Mom cannot believe all the stuff she is touching now that I'm around. I'm really expanding her horizons.

After the museum we went to Elianna's house and we saw the coolest thing. The recycle truck stopped right in front of her house. Not only did they pick up the recycling, but they ran the compactor too. It was so awesome.

On Sunday I tried bowling for the first time. I must be a natural because my score was 145. Dad helped me lift the ball onto the ramp. I did the pushing. The coolest thing was watching the ball come back!

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!
