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.


Parade of Joy

This weekend was the Cary Jaycees Christmas Parade. Mommy got up early and left the house to go help setup. Daddy took Alden and I over in the afternoon. Alden went with Mommy to watch the behind-the-scenes and I stayed with Daddy. I got so much candy! Some guy was passing out model cars and I got one. I was very excited. I carried it everywhere. I've even been sleeping with it.

After the parade we went to Paige and Brendan's house. Miss Joni likes to host the Jaycees for post parade pizza.


The House of Nerf

Mommy was really excited this weekend. Alden can now officially play Monopoly with the regular rules. He can read his own cards and count his own money. Mommy used to play with him with a simplified rules, but he can do the real thing now.

We love Nerf! We play Nerf all the time. Betty likes to chew the darts. We got a dart stuck up on a high window and we kept trying to shoot it down. No luck.

Betty can be a pest with her chewing and barking, but she's sweet when she's sleeping. I used her as a pillow on the couch yesterday.
