Knock Down Candles!

I had a rough weekend! Thursday was my birthday. Mom came home with Elmo balloons and cake. I didn't care much though. Something was just not right with me. I tried to cling to Mom to see if she could figure out what was wrong. We got the cake out. Mom and Dad sang to me and after a few minutes of trying to knock down my candle I figured out they wanted me to blow on it. I ended up tossing my cookies so we didn't do any gifts :(  I kept telling Mom and Dad "all done" hoping it would make the rotten feeling in my tummy go away.

I spent the weekend with a fever, only drinking milk and juice, sleeping, crying, and clinging to Mom. It was awful. I just wanted to feel better. I even had to miss Megan's birthday party. Mom and Dad even let me sleep in their bed on Saturday. Just like old times, I slept on Mom's rib cage. Finally on Sunday my fever broke.

When Mom and Dad ask me how old I am, I say "one" and hold up one finger. Then they say "noooo you are two." I love teasing them. They think I'm fibbing about my age already.

Tonight was Halloween. It was cold and raining. Quinn was kind enough to pass me along his cool green dragon costume. Mom tried to get me to go trick or treating. I wasn't interested. Why would I go out in the rain when we had a candy stash at home?! Someone had to stick around and keep an eye on it!

Alden enjoyed sorting his new golf clubs into corresponding colored tubs.

Alden made sure everyone stayed within their candy quota.

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!
