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.

Birthday Cookie Experiment

It’s Grandpa’s birthday.

We are making cookies because it is Grandpa’s birthday today.  I want to share them.  If you want one, come over and say “Happy Birthday to Grandpa”, you will get a cookie, even though Grandpa is not here.

They are Cowgirl Cookies.  There is chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries, oatmeal, and butter in them.  I am going to put half of them with nuts and half of them without walnuts.

The first batch is in the oven.  You can start coming whenever until 6:30 tonight.  Tomorrow you can come after 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. because we have church.

My experiment is to see how many people come.  I think at least, about, maybe four people will come.  I want at least 10 people to come.

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Friends over!

Tori and Shaely came over today.  They are my friends.

Tori and I was playing dress up.  We were pretending to be Momma’s.  Tori was the one with orange hat.  I was the one with the blue hat.

We played “Tag your it”.  And we played on the swings.   We climbed trees in the front.

We played clown with Shaely and Mark.

We had lots of fun!  I want them to come over again.

Old Dolls!

Today we went to Grandma’s house.  We saw some old dolls.

One was Grandma’s and it was 60 years old.  When Grandma was five, she got the doll.  Her sister was asked what she wanted.  Her sister said a train.

There are three black dolls.  One is in this pretty dress, all pink.  One is in overalls with a striped shirt and then the last one is a little doll in overalls that look like pants with a shirt. These are from Mrs. Washington.  They were Great Grandma Lamb’s.  She is Momma’s Daddy’s Momma.  Mrs.  Washington was her neighbor. She called Great Grandma Lamb “her white granddaughter!”.

There were some other dolls.  They were littler.  Great Grandma said that one was from Great Grandpa when he went to England and it was over 100 years old! The oldest doll is sitting by my arm on the right by the black doll.

There was other fragile ones.  Some of them were between in age.

Momma’s dolls are porcelain dolls.  One has white hair, one has yellow hair.  The yellow hair one has a red dress with a sunbonnet.  The white hair doll has a white and green dress and wearing a white hat with a green ribbon.

In the picture with Great Grandma, Mark is standing on his tippy toes!



today   we    had snow!  (I wrote this by myself!)

Now Momma is helping me.

Last night, it snowed.  It looked different because we hadn’t had snow in awhile.  It was pretty!

I looked out the window and I saw snow.  It was packing snow!  We made snowmen and a snow horse.  We had fun.

We played outside before school.  We got hot chocolate!  I did my math.  I am learning how to do fractions.  We are having chicken tomato soup with fishy crackers and carrots for lunch.

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.

Going to the Eye Doctor

Yesterday at 10:00, I went to the eye doctor.  I was nervous.

Me and the nurse played some games.  We played some word games.  We played with pictures.  After we played the games, them put something in my eyes.  They made me BLINK!  Then we went into the hallway.  I had some hot chocolate and two cookies!

Then I went with Momma.  After she went with the nurse, we saw the eye doctor.  He was nice.  I was a little scared of him.  He showed me some pictures of birthday cakes, an old old old phone, and a duck.

When it was Momma’s turn, she said to read a book.   When I tried it was all blurry.  I couldn’t even see a word! She said “Did the nurse put something in your eyes?”  I said yes.  She said, “then you can’t read!”

When it was my turn to see the eye doctor I got more hot chocolate and cookies.  Momma faked reading a book, because she couldn’t see either!  I helped Momma pick out new glasses.  They are really pretty.

I have to come back another day.  The eye doctor said that I was far sighted.  He said that was normal for kids.  He saw something interesting in my eyes and he wants to see me not this Tuesday but the following Tuesday.

We went to Grandma’s house.  We had some juice and a peanut butter sandwhich.  Then we went to pick up Audrey and Adrian and Mark.  Then we went home.

The end.

Going to a water park

On Monday we went to a water park.   It was very fun!  My cousins invited all of us.

It was called the Kalihari.  It had a water park inside and a hotel.

In the water park, one of the hot tubs went outside!  There was a wavepool that had waves.  There was a buzzing sound and the waves came.  There was a water tunnel.  It was tube and you went down on a inner tube. There was a one person and two person inner tube.  There was a water coaster and “Boogy boarding”.

A big bucket with an elephant on it would fill up.  It was on top of a building.  Then it tipped over on you.  It felt like bees stinging you.

There was one called Lazy River.  You floated around on inner tubes. There was a tunnel and there was pictures painted on the wall.  I could touch the bottom.  I ran into every waterfall. 

I don’t know what my favorite  thing was.

We had fun and we came home on Tuesday night.

We ate all of the sandwich that Daddy bought for us.  All the kids had one big sandwich and we ate it all.  We told Daddy to go back inside and then we ate another one.  Daddy came out again and we said we need another one and Daddy went inside and got one for Momma and Daddy.

Then we went home.  I ran downstairs and hugged all my teddys then changed into pajamas, brushed my teeth and went to bed!

This is Adrain talking on my blog.   I slide down on the slide and big bubbles!  Played in the little bubbles.  I stand on hot tub.  I floated on hot tub.  I had fun watching Daddy.
