Time to start putting up Christmas decorations! My nativity sets are up in my room and downstairs, and daddy put up our little tree. We are going to get a real tree next week! And tomorrow I get to open the first door of my Advent Calendar! I got to sleep over Aunt Kelly's last night and we made gingerbread houses with candy on them. I think I ate most of the candy ! Back to school tomorrow - boo!!
Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Birthday Daddy!
What a fun day we had with all my cousins, Grandma Erika, Grandpa Chuck and my aunts & uncles! Too bad mommy and daddy were so crazy about the turkeys b/c they tasted really good! And my cousins got to sleepover so we had a really fun time!
Today was my Grandma Burke's birthday! She would have been 77 years old. We were supposed to go to church but I didn't go b/c I was coughing all night and have a cold. I hope I feel better for Thanksgiving coming up!
What an exciting day! My new furniture arrived for my room so the new baby can have my old furniture. I got a new bed, dresser and end table and Daddy put a chair rail up in my room and Mommy painted letters to spell my name. It looks great - soon we'll post pictures once we find the battery for our camera!
This weekend we were in Deep Creek, MD with my Pap Pap's side of the family. Poor Mommy woke up not feeling good at all so she wasn't too happy but I had a great time. At first Murphy the dog scared me a bit b/c he likes to jump but I loved watching him jump in the lake to catch the ball! I really liked Oreo (cousin Erin's dog), he was smaller and didn't jump as much. My favorite part of the trip was jumping on the beds! Then when we left, more snow so I was excited to eat it !
When I woke up this morning there was snow on the ground! Not alot but I was excited to wear my hat and mittens so I could touch and eat it! Check out the pictures my dad took on the way to school. (Do you think we should put away the slides in our backyard ??). My mom also added a few pictures she took of me last year when it snowed for the first time on November 16th (does my coat and pants look familiar!). But something is missing in the 2007 pictures - do you know what it is?
Just a quick update about the weekend and a new picture to share! We went to Aunt Amanda's shower at Grammy & Pap Pap's house and I was having so much fun playing golf in the house. Hitting the ball back and forth and showing off my skills. A few times the ball went under their coffee table and I would dive under the table to get it - no problem. Well one time my head and the corner of the coffee table met and it was disaster from there. It was much worse than the picture shows but is much better now!
I cried alot but felt better in a little while and even beat Grammy, Jason and Amanda in candyland!! Ha--ha--ha ha ha! I winned!
Sunday I ordered new furniture for my room! It will come on a big big truck in 2 days (err weeks!).
Boy, I'm really tired from working so hard. Daddy and I have been busy painting the new baby's room, and I helped Mommy paint the letters that are going in my room. Then we went outside and raked even more leaves (have you seen the pictures of our trees?). OK so I spent most of my time jumping in them but I still worked hard!
And I'm so excited about my new "feety" pajamas ever since I saw Jack in them I wanted a pair. I wear them every night now even if its not too cold out!
Happy Halloween!! What an exciting day! I wore my Cinderella costume all day with Grandpa, even to Wendys for lunch! Then daddy came home and we went all around the neighborhood and I got lots and lots of candy. I only ate a few pieces before bed and saved the rest for tomorrow!
