Sky and Light Shows

I'm helping Dad put up his light show this year. What perfect weather we had over the weekend to work on it!

Neither Trent nor I like Thanksgiving food. This year I fell asleep before dinner. I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and then went to get Mommy to get me some food. She got me some pie. Then she was upset to see the dishwasher had flooded the kitchen floor. Daddy, Carson, and Grandpa helped put in a new dishwasher (and faucet - that was leaking).

On Friday we went to the planetarium with our friends Emily and Molly. We learned how to find the big dipper.

Mallory

Today started out like a lot of days. I went to school. When Mommy came to pick me up, she told me that Mallory died today.

Mallory had a bump that was making her sick for a long time. Today Mommy and Daddy had to take Mallory to the vet so she wouldn't be uncomfortable anymore. They knew this day was coming, but they didn't know exactly when.

At first I was shocked, but then I wanted to be alone in my room for a bit to cry. Then I felt better for awhile. We had dinner and I stayed home with Daddy to do my homework while Mommy and Trent went to the grocery store.

I started missing Mallory when it was time to go to bed. I asked Mommy a million questions about what happened to Mallory. I couldn't stop thinking about her while I was in bed.

My friend Mallory at school had a dog die too. I am going to tell her about my Mallory tomorrow.

Trent doesn't get it at all. Mommy said Trent won't remember Mallory, but I will.

Dance Party

Sometimes I like to put on music in my room and dance around with blankets.

Smallcakes

On Friday we went to see the Peanuts movie. It was cute.

On Saturday we went to see Hotel Transylvania Two. It was a rainy and dark weekend. Before the movie we went out for cupcakes. They rocked.

Happy Halloween

Alden had a field trip to a pumpkin farm on his birthday. Mommy went with him as a chaperone. It was a cold and rainy day. They had fun, but cut the field trip a bit short. Daddy picked up Alden to school and they went to Toys R Us where Alden picked out some military toys. When they got back, Alden picked Ci Ci's pizza for dinner. Upon returning home, we had birthday cake decorated with a military jet on top and cameo sides. Alden declared it good to be 6.

On Friday, while Alden was at school, Mommy and I met up with some old friends, Miss Kim and her sons Nathan and Ryan. We went to a park. It was cold and wet. After the park we went to a Halloween library story-time.

On Friday we went to the haunted trail Mommy was working on. One of the tractors got stuck in the mud so it took a lot time for us to get a ride. It was supposed to be light out, but by the time we got on it was dark. It was scary.

For Halloween I was a scary dragon and Alden was Mr. Incredible. We got lots of can…
