Christmas happened!

It finally came! We've had so much excitement these past few days I don't even remember last week!

thursday morning we got up and headed to the airport. FINALLY. i was so excited. i was a very good boy going through security and heading to the gate. we ate some lunch at the airport and i actually got to see santa claus. he gave me some candy. i hung out at the kidport before the flight.


when we got on the plane and in the air (take off was my favorite part!) mommy let me see her ipod. she put all kinds of shows on it which was great. she also let me play some ipod games.

we brought lots of snacks from home- cashews, dried cherries, cheese, chex mix, gum drops.... i ate the whole way to colorado!

grandma ruth and uncle aaron met us at the airport in denver.


the next morning was christmas morning and santa came! i got a new train set piece and a cool hat. and a hippo! grandma got me lots of stuffed animals. we went to church and i was actually a pretty good boy- for me.


in the evening jonah, sam, louise and uncle christian came. i was so excited i could hardly stand it.


yesterday and today i got to walk and play in the snow. this afternoon, sam, louise and i built a snow fort and made almost 50 snow balls! awesome!



it is so much fun here- i love it. and i love christmas!

more christmas fun

we've been doing a lot of christmasy stuff around here lately. i've finally stopped asking if "today" is christmas. i've given up. they always say "no, not yet."

anyway, this weekend we went to a street festival that uncle bob and aunt shannon have. there was lots of food and music and a lady painted my face. i asked for a heart. it had sparkles on it. santa was also there! he gave me a popcorn ball. i really liked talking to him. aunt jan and uncle chuck were there too, so that was nice.




we also went to prickett's fort and i LOVED it. these people get to pretty much live outside, play with animals, play with FIRE and build stuff. how cool is that? i could have stayed there forever. i asked if we could live there but mom and dad said no.


mom and i have been doing lots of baking and decorating. i decorated sugar cookies tonight and mommy thinks they are beautiful. i just think they are tasty!



i have decided that i want a hippo for christmas. a pink hippo. i told mom and dad that and they said, "hey, there's a song about that." and there is! i guess lots of kids want hippos for christmas.

christmastime is here!

we had such a great weekend!

friday night we went to the christmas parade downtown. before the parade we met scott and the webers at black bear for supper. there were so many kids there- it was awesome! max and keith left early because max was actually IN the parade!

i walked up to high street with aj and we sat on the curb waiting for the parade to start. it was very very cold, but once they started throwing candy we were totally into it. i was also very excited to see fireman sam. he was way better than santa claus. my phrase of the night? "throw more candy here!"

saturday we woke up and guess what? it snowed! a lot! mommy and i played outside and made a snow man. we also made gingerbread cookies and worked on our gingerbread houses.

on sunday i had a party to go to at a place called blaney house. it was a great party. they gave each kid there a penguin puppet. i named mine "pank". he's great and i love making him talk. i got to do a project at the party and they also had a puppet show with another penguin and a star and a talking tree.

sunday evening we finished our gingerbread houses. mine looks great!

we went to columbus on wednesday to get my brothers.

on the way there we stopped at this place with all kinds of dead animals. it was pretty cool.


i got to swim in the hotel at columbus which was a lot of fun.

on thanksgiving day mommy and i made cool pilgrim hats which i wore at dinner.


yesterday they took me to a movie. i had a great time but everyone kept telling me to "shhh" and a couple times daddy tried to shut my mouth with his hand. whatever. i think it's important to give my opinion and ask appropriate questions during a film. i still don't understand why that guy was afraid of all the ghosts.

tonight max and aj came over. we played trains and cootie and wore silly hats. it was the best!

i have been a bit sick lately. i have an annoying cough and my voice sounds like a frog.

i had a bad fever on sunday and my mom and dad were really worried about me. we spent most of the day on the couch watching shows. i did still get to take ro-ro out for a walk. he loved it!

tomorrow we go to pick up my brothers. i can't wait!

today i told my dad that from now on i'd call him "pickle." why? not gonna say. gotta keep 'em guessing.

been watching the movie ice age a lot lately. it cracks me up!

not too much else happening. mommy repainted my kitchen and got me some new stuff so i can play zefronk. we love zefronk!

last week we went to pittsburgh to visit the museum.

carenegie science center

we also went to this great fountain! i danced and laughed and just generally loved it. life is good!

halloween was great!


even before i had my dash costume on people were knocking on our door asking for candy. i was so excited!


daddy stayed behind to pass out candy while mommy and i walked all the way to the top of the neighborhood and back. i filled my plastic pumpkin with all kinds of goodies. i loved seeing all the kids dressed up and i loved talking to all the people passing out candy. i said "trick or treat" and "thank you" just like i was supposed to. i also told lots of people how great and scary their costumes were.

after an hour i was tired and cold so i sat outside with dad under a blanket and passed out candy.

after trick or treat was over we went inside. i was beat and had no trouble going to bed.

the next day was just as fun. first, we went to the tugboat depot to play and ride my bike.


in the afternoon we had dominic's birthday party. i got to play with lots of kids and had a great time running around with AJ. what a good time!


i was wipe out after such an exciting weekend.

halloween party!

on sunday we had a halloween party at gram's house. i was so excited! i got to wear my dash costume and run around like crazy. we had so many snacks and cookies and we also got to play games.


jake dressed up like dracula and sam wore her halloween sweater. max was a power ranger, aj was a fireman AND a pirate, maverick was a bear, and caroline was a cheerleader. dominic didn't feel like dressing up, so he was just dominic!




the best part is- it's still halloween! mommy says it will be halloween til saturday. how great is that?

my cousins remy and carson came in this weekend and i just love seeing them so much. they play hide and seek with me and watch movies with me and it's just so much fun.

yesterday we baked halloween cookies together. check them out! i think they look great!

i discovered fireman sam this weekend. i particularly love the halloween episode, but i think the other episodes are cool too.

i've been making lots of nests lately with blankets. i like to pretend to be a bird, and sometimes i just like to snuggle in them. i make them as big as i can. i think mom and dad think i'm silly, but i just love it!

my new best friend

big news at gram's house! she got a new little friend for me to play with. i named him jake!

for the most part i love him but sometimes his sharp little teeth and claws hurt me. i'm learning to be gentle with him. gram says i make her nervous. i don't know what she's talking about.

his food is not that good, but gram has been having me spend a lot of time in his cage. she says it's better that way.

albert's birthday

this weekend mom, dad, gram and i went to friendship hill for albert's party. i was ready to stay home all day and play, but mom and dad said NO WAY. they wanted to get me out of the house.

we walked up the hill to the party i heard GUNSHOTS. they scared me to death. my adults did not seem to be alarmed. once we got to the top of the hill we saw all kinds of people dressed in funny clothes. some were making things, some were cooking, some were just talking. my favorite part was making candles. i made a nice green candle. i am very proud of it.

there were people playing music. i danced and danced and danced.

good food too. i really enjoyed this pickle.

best part? the monster house. how spooky is this place?

oh, and that reminds me. on friday and saturday we made our monster houses. mine is still at gram's but i'll be bringing it home soon when we decorate for fall. isn't it awesome? i had so much fun making it and decorated all by myself. mom was really proud.

i got wheels

friday night dad and mom took me shopping. i got a bike! it is an awesome spider-man bike. i also got a helmet and pads.

saturday morning we hit the park and i took some turns around the playground. i did pretty good! pedaling is harder than it looks. at one point i realized i could get to the other side in half the time if i just walked, so that's what i did.

in the evening grammy and uncle galen came over to watch football. i was very excited to have them here.

i also discovered a new movie that i love- harry potter. it is spooky and cool and i really like it.

no really, i love corn

last weekend i took my first trip to indiana to see my brothers. we woke up really early on friday morning and rode forever and ever. i watched a couple movies, took a nap, colored, whined- you know, normal two-year-old stuff.

we got to our hotel in kokomo and mommy took me swimming. it was awesome! i loved the hot tub. i did not enjoy dinner. long story, but let's say it ended with mommy eating alone at our table. after that, she and i went to the hotel and went to bed.

when i woke up, my brothers were there! we swam a little then headed to chicago. i saw hundreds of windmills, but none of them were working. and i saw CORN. lots and lots of corn and i loved it. we went to the field museum. i got to hang out with some pirates. my favorite part of that was getting ice cream afterword.

we got to our hotel and my brothers and i watched movies and ate pizza. i fell in love with "the parent trap". in the morning daddy and i went for a walk outside. a nice lady came up and said hi to me. daddy said she was a queen, but she wasn't wearing a crown. daddy said her name was lola. she was wearing a skirt, but sounded a little bit like daddy.

chicago seems like a really fun place.

after that we went to see uncle peter, aunt margaret, noah and hannah. their house was awesome- more toys than i've ever seen!

we headed to the lincoln park zoo next. i got to see a polar bear swimming, creatures, and i got to ride a train. before i knew it we were back to kokomo, swimming at our hotel.

monday morning we dropped my brothers off at their house. their little dog, ajax kissed me and wagged his tail at me. i love him.

it was a great trip and i can't wait to go again!
