Five

I'm officially five now. At school, my teacher made me a Star Wars crown. The spiky part was light sabres.

Over the weekend we went to Pittsburgh. I met my cousins Thomas and Caroline for the first time. Alden made it clear he was not going to change any diapers. We went to a zoo, had a cookout (complete with a surprise cake for me), and did a home fireworks show. Alden was very excited that he got to light off the fireworks.

Thomas had an ear infection, Caroline a fever, and Aunt Jenny and Uncle Balex had strep throat. I woke up with a fever on Sunday morning. I threw up on the plane ride home. Thankfully Mom got me a bag in time.

Always get a fireworks pack bigger than yourself.

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.

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!

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season.
