The Party Van

Alden started preschool on Tuesday. I am happy about that because that means that I will get some more 1:1 time with Mom. Tuesday started out great, but Alden got a bit teary eyed turning into the preschool parking lot. When it was time for Mom and I to leave Alden started to cry. Mom told me it made her heart hurt to see the assistant teacher hugging him as we got in the car.

When we went to pick him up the teacher said Alden did great. He also did great on Thursday (no tears). Tonight Alden told us at bedtime that he knew he was going to be dropped off for "just a little bit"  and that he isn't going to cry tomorrow. Alden asked to have "Maisy Goes to Preschool" read to us tonight.

We got a new used car. Mom and Dad are sad about it. It is a mini van, but Mom is calling it the "party van." It is for hauling us kids and the dogs around. Alden LOVES playing with the doors and how he can walk through the middle of it.

Grandma J came to stay with us for the weekend. Mom needed the help because Dad was on an airplane. I got to use her as a human bassinet. Lots of cuddles for me! I also took the opportunity to demonstrate to Grandma what I mean by "blow out."

We went to an art show in downtown Cary on Saturday. I am not interested in art so I used the time to snooze. There was a fire engine at the show and one of the fire fighters showed Alden all over the truck. Alden keep asking "what's in there?" and so the fire fighter kept opening more and more compartments.

I am having fun playing with spit bubbles in my mouth. Hobbies are good!

At the end of an awesome tour!

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!
