Feeling Festive

We are enjoying the festivals and shows of the Christmas season. Right before Thanksgiving we went with our friends Molly and Emily to see a special children's symphony called "The Snowman." During the show, the North Carolina Symphony played music while a snowman cartoon played on a big screen and a local TV news lady read the story. It was Mommy's first symphony too.

On Friday we went to a special night time elves party at the children's museum. The best part was looking for snowflakes inside peppermint slime.

On Saturday we went to see the movie "Muppets Christmas Carol." Trent and I both did a good job sitting through it. Then we went to a Christmas craft show downtown. I didn't care about the crafts, but Trent and I spent a long time looking at the police car and firetruck. I asked all kinds of questions. The police and firefighters liked Trent and I's coats. I have a police jacket and Trent has a firefighter jacket. There was also a pirate making balloon animals and swords there.

Yesterday we went to see Rudolph The Musical. We liked it so much we would like to see it again.



Music time.





Fun at the slime table.




The police car was so new it only had 900 miles on it!

Firefighter Trent.

Captain Jack Sparrow made balloon swords. 


More musical fun.

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!
