Grandparents Rule !

Hey y'all - 
It seems time is flying by and my Grandma and Grandpa Stafford from Michigan are ready to change the scenery out their motorhome window.  It's been pretty great having them down for Christmas because Grandpa helps Dad play with some really big, loud scary looking tools that make big messes and Grandma likes to shout about some poor pigs that have issues due to a mischievous wolf with an extraordinary tendency to exhale forcefully in the direction of their new-house construction.

Before they leave, we got to take a trip to the museum and ride the train together, look at real live farm animals and have a great time. - Safe Travels Grandma & Grandpa !!!

Nothing gets the day started like a Wooo-Wooo Train ride!

Thankfully the birds didn't poop on us.

Till next time -

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!
