Grandma Jo sent this over today. 5 years ago I stayed over with them for a few nights when Emmerson was born. I was SO excited to have a little brother. Lately, he drives me NUTS! He has learned how to push my buttons so well. But I do love him so very much! Happy 5th Monkey Boy!
We finished our Lego team project. We go to our competition in February and area really excited!
We have 2-3 mutant Florida squirrels in the back yard. They have basically decided our garden is equal to a 24 hour a day buffet. They have dug up just about everything! After an exhausting morning of digging one opted for sunbathing on the playhouse!
I am building lots of new structures.
We are learning more in science.
More building today with Connect-a-straws.
I made a flower and quickly it became a ferris wheel and then something else.
I keep telling Mommy I don’t have time to play. This is the time last year when i was just losing my marbles and my behavior tanked. I made great strides and now am in that same funk again. I am constantly challenging Mommy and Daddy. They are hoping that it is just a phase and I grow out of it rather quickly. I think I spend more time in time-out lately. It’s tough being 7 right now.
Mommy checked on our hermit crabs today and found that one had just molted and it looking for a new shell.
I have been trying really hard on my bike lately and finally got it 100%!
Mr. Mc Wiz is back and I am more than excited. Our dear friends, The Goldman Family, gave us a free lesson for the holidays! How AWESOME!
We learned a lot about acids and bases.
I had fun guessing what I thought was an acid or base. I was pretty accurate.
We played with a bit or dry ice and also learned about endo and exothermic reactions!
We tried to explode a ziplock bag with vinegar and baking soda. I guessed the right combination. Can you find me hiding in the garden so I don’t get soaked when it explodes?
We also grew a crystal tree and learned about capillary action!
I have been busy building Legos.
We went out to dinner at Mellow Mushroom with Grandma and Grandpa and then had Carvel afterwards.
We spent an entire day in our pajamas making accessories for my new Monster High Girls.
I met my clone at Toys R Us! (hehe!)
I got a pair of silly drinking glasses.
I am enjoying the lazy week before we start back to the grind of 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Mommy noticed Thunder was acting strange and not using the letterbox. This earned him a emergency trip to the vet. He had a crystal blockage and was unable to urinate. He had to have surgery to insert a catheter and drain his blockage. He was reduced to the cone-of-shame for the week.
Thunder is since feeling better but there is new letterbox stress int he house and someone, we aren’t 100% sure who, peed under our beds and all over our stuffed animals.
Merry Christmas! Santa came and brought me a stocking full of goodies, Moonlight Fairies and a really cool castle (for both of us)!
I got lots and lots of Legos! I loved spending the day at home just playing with my toys and hanging out with family.
Mommy build her gift, R2D2!
Our elves have gone back to the north pole for the winter to rest and apparently receive behavior training after all the trouble they got in this year.
