On Friday, Mom took me to an indoor pool to have a playdate with Claire. I'm not so sure about swimming. I think it is more fun to get into stuff around the pool. As we were leaving the pool I made Mom help me find the dumpsters. Then we had noodles at an eat place for lunch. Before heading home we found the dumpsters there. Mom was impressed because I was able to identify the grease dumpster on my own. She didn't know Dad had taught me all about them.

I have a new big boy construction puzzle that Mom and Dad gave me on Friday. By Saturday they were impressed that I can put it together on my own. I've long outgrown my big wood shape puzzles.

On Sunday, we went to an eat place and Mom and Dad kept talking about going to see some trucks. I didn't know what the heck they were talking about so I kept insisting that we go check out the dumpsters and trash cans instead.

Finally they got me away from that and we went to a mall parking lot where they had every kind of truck and cool big equipment thing you can think of: a garbage truck, police cars, recycle truck, bus, ambulance, multiple helicopters, fire trucks, diggers, etc. The first thing I did was sit in the garbage truck. We even got to see a life-flight helicopter land! I sat in a military helicopter, but not one of the life-flight ones. We waited in a long line to get up to it. When it was my turn I didn't want to sit in the front; I wanted to let into the back but everyone told me I was in the wrong line for that. I got really mad and Mom and Dad got annoyed. Shortly after that we headed home for nap time.

I wish every weekend was touch-a-truck weekend.

Hah-hah, snagged Miss Katie's keys!

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!
