A Blazing Weekend

We went to New York for the weekend. We arrived home today exhausted after a weekend of partying it up Big Apple style.

Our weekend started in Sleepy Hollow. Grandma, Aunt Jen, and Aunt Kat met us there. We flew into New Jersey. We drove to Sleepy Hollow. On Saturday morning Mom and the Aunts did a 10K in Sleepy Hollow. We joined them at lunch time. We ate at a firefighter themed pub. Then we toured around downtown. Mom loved the Halloweenish stuff. We loved the firetrucks and bounce house at the street fair. We toured the cemetery too.  Mom loves old cemeteries. Daddy does not find them interesting and neither do we. At night we went to a big jack o'lantern show called the Great Blaze. After the Blaze we went out for dessert at a diner. We were out until 11:30 p.m. Party on!

Everyone was impressed by my stinky feet. I stayed in the Grandma and Aunts' room Saturday night so they could enjoy them.

On Sunday we said goodbye to Grandma and the Aunts and took a train to New York City. Our first stop was Times Square and the Hard Rock. We had dinner with Daddy's coworker Rajan and his daughter of course. We got mini-cupcakes on the way back to the hotel.

Today we went to the Natural History Museum before flying home. Our favorite part was the gift shop. Mom cannot figure out how two kids who love dinosaurs so much didn't show much interest in dinosaur bones.

The police were very nice.

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!
