Chai Taste Test

We made some home made instant chai. Then we had a taste test.

We wrote on a piece of paper which one we thought we would like best. Then we tasted one, two, three, four and five.

My favorite one was FIVE because it was the creamiest.  I don’t like number three, it tasted like water.

This chart is who liked what.  Everybody did it except for Momma, because she knew which one was which.

If you want to see how to make it, go to Momma’s recipe blog.

Happy May Day

Today we got flowers!  They were outside on the salt bags.  It’s a mystery who gave them to us.  It says Happy May Day & God Bless You.

I like them.  There were “Heart’s Blood”  (Bleeding Hearts), Tulips, and Daffodils.   My favorite are the Heart’s Blood.

We think it was Auntie Angelique or Uncle Sam.

Thank you for whoever gave us the flowers.

Half Birthday

Today is my half birthday and I am sick!

I am 7 and a half.  Momma says that I am officially 7 and a half because I was born at 6:05!

I got sick because Mark got sick.  I have a fever, a head ache and a cough.  I feel like crying because I feel bad.

Some good things for my half birthday.  I get ice cream and brownie!  It sounds good.  We got to watch the second Acts movie.  I don’t know what my favorite part it.  Momma is reading us Gooney Bird Greene.  She was late for school and she also did some stories about her.  I want to finish the book now.

I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Eye Doctor again

Today I went to the eye doctor.  I don’t need glasses!  Hooray!

The nurse took a picture of my eyes and then made me read the numbers.  I got some hot chocolate.  The eye doctor said the picture of my eyes look good!

Then we went to Grandma and Grandpas  house.

Then we went to the Bookworm.   That is a place where we buy books.  I got a dolly book and a Sea Princess book.

Then we went out to eat.  I ate pizza and a breadstick.  I drank lots of pop!

Then we went home.  We played and then cleaned and now I am finishing my blog.

My best part of the day was going out to eat!  Then the bookstore.

A Thanksgiving Poem

A Thanksgiving Poem

By Andrea (with a itty bitty help from Mark and Audrey)

“Gobble Gobble”, said the turkey.

Help me, I think that I am in a trap!

Men are coming with knives over here.

I don’t know why…Oh no, they are cooking me!

“This turkey is delicious”, said the people.

The beans and smashed potatoes–not for me!,

Turkey, turkey and more turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for cats, my family, my friends, Grandma and Grandpa, Oma and Opa and Uncles and Aunts.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mark and Daddy

Yesterday, Mark and Daddy fixed my bike!  They had to fix my wheel because it was broken.  It had a little hole in it.

I tried riding it; the first time I fell down–but I caught myself– ’cause the seat was too high.  Daddy and Mark fixed that.

I tried riding it the second time and I didn’t fall down!  I can ride my bike!

Mark did a good job!  Thank you, Mark!
