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.

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!
