My 3rd Christmas

On Christmas Eve we started out with a lazy morning. Then we piled into the red car and went to brunch with Santa. It was a big buffet in a fancy room. They had a low buffet table for kids which was much appreciated. Then some loud music started and the big man himself walked in! It was very exciting. Besides Santa, they had face painting and balloon animals.

When we got home Dad went to get groceries. Mom and I baked.Then she tried to put me down for a nap.I knew they were busy getting ready so I decided to skip my nap to help. Mom loved having me handle her Christmas dishes.

In the evening, Grandma, Grandpa, Cousin Trevor, Aunt Sue, and Uncle Rob came over.We had dinner and then hung around. The best part was Trevor showed me the NORAD Santa tracker.

Then came Christmas morning. I woke up grumpy and I couldn't figure out what Mom and Dad were all excited about. I wanted to watch garbage truck videos but they kept bugging me about going into the living room to see presents. So we went in there and I was still grumpy so I had Mom open my gifts. I got shoes, Elmo pjs, stacking pegs, a pizza kit, and a drill kit. Later I Skyped with my Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Kat, and Aunt Jenny in Michigan.

After my nap I felt better. We went to Cousin Trevor's and had a party. I ate lots of chips.We opened a lot of gifts. I got hockey sticks! I had fun watching Cousin Trevor play XBox 360. Uncle Bob called us on Facetime.

I was too tried to open all my gifts on Christmas, so Grandma and Grandpa came over today to give me another gift. It was my very own workbench. It goes great with the tools Miss Charlotte gave me!

Mom's food tastes better than Alden's.

Awesome snake balloon!

Snowman on the cheek.

Alden did great with the big guy!

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!
