Happy Hoppy Easter

I have now experienced my first Easter and what a joyful season it is. I was also fortunate enough to turn 10 months on the big day.

Grandma and Grandpa J and Aunts Kat and Jenny came to visit us. We colored eggs with them. Alden showed off his potty training skills (still a work in progress).  Grandpa showed Alden how to find black jelly beans in ears.

Alden is very stubborn when he doesn't want to go to bed. Me, I just roll with it and get my much needed rest. Alden won't stay in bed if he hears activity going on downstairs. He was also distracted by our Aunts sleeping in the play room. On Easter he was up until midnight. Mom texted the Easter bunny to tell him not to come. But she was nice enough to text him the all clear at 1 a.m. once she knew Alden was deep asleep.

On Saturday Mom and Alden took a cooking class together. Alden got to use a real knife for the first time. He enjoyed the class. The best part was the refrigerator that is go big you can walk in it. Alden even asked to go back.

On Easter we went to some kind friends' house and had an egg hunt with them.

Happy 10 months to Trent on Easter!

Chef Alden sharpens his knife skills.

Alden was much faster with the egg hunt this year!

Alden's first experience coloring eggs.

The bad side of not sleeping at night.

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!
