Merry Belated Christmas

We are back! Sorry we've been gone from blogging for awhile. It was a busy couple of weeks. We enjoyed Christmas and almost 2 weeks off from school (and Mommy and Daddy were off too). It has been a struggle getting back to our normal schedule. It was so nice sleeping in and not having to be anywhere in particular.

The day before Christmas Eve we had a party at school. That means we sat around eating junk food.

We spent Christmas Eve at home with Grandma and Grandpa Stafford, Uncle Rob, Aunt Sue, and Cousin Trevor. We had meatloaf for dinner. We ate lots of chocolate covered cherries. Earlier that day we had lunch at Outback. Mommy loves the seasonal cocktails there and we love stealing the sugar rims off her cocktails.

On Christmas Day Trent was sick so just Daddy and I went to Aunt Sue's. The good news is he was better the next day.

Some of my gifts this year: magnet kit, nerf gun, Crayola Marker maker, Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (TNMT) socks, jammies, and top, Don't Break the Ice game, cars and glow in the dark track, slime kit...

Some of Trent's gifts this year: soccer net, TNMT jammies and top, floating helicopter, shark rescue ship, Spiderman t-shirt and pillowcase...

On the 26th we went to San Francisco. I will update you on that trip next time :)

Sugar rims attract kids.

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!
