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!

First Snow of Year on Grandma’s Birthday!

Yesterday was the first day of  snow.  We went to Science Sleuths with our sleds.

We went to Pizza Hut and had some pizza.  We ate it at Oxbow Park, because that’s where Science Sleuths is.  It was snowing and it was a snow picnic!

We went to  Science Sleuths.  We learned about hibernation.  That is when something is sleeping in its house like bears.  But they live in caves.

Then after Science Sleuths we sled down the hills!  I liked it.  Tyler is Miss Krista’s son.  Miss Krista teaches Science Sleuths and Nature Nuts.  Tyler went down the hill with me and we flipped.  It was fun.  Yes, it was fun.

I had fun on Grandma’s Birthday!

P. S.  Today we made our first snowman! 🙂

Happy Halloween

Today, we went to the Trick or Treat Goshen and we trick or treated there.  When we were done, we put some candy into some bags.  Every year we pass out candy at Oma’s house, because we have too many!

In my picture I am Queen Susan.  One day, it was first day Sunday in the first grade Sunday class.  I forgot to show Mark something and I went into my bag and I found a pattern.  I wanted it for my birthday.  Momma fixed it and hid it.  Today, I found it and I thought she was going to wear it, but…

I realized Momma wasn’t going to wear it.  It was for me!  I like it! 

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!

Going in a balloon

Last Thursday we went to one of Daddy’s cousins–Big Mark’s–house.  Daddy’s school was having Homecoming.   I will try to write more about Homecoming later.

Saturday night, we went on a hot air balloon.  We were going camping when we saw a hot air balloon.  It was tethered.  Tethered means tied.  We waited for a couple of minutes.  We went on it.  Two came off and three came on.  then the other two came off, and the other three came on.

It felt fun.  I could feel a breeze.  Adrian was nervous when he saw it go up, but when he got on and went up, he liked it.

I liked it.  I was excited!  I would do it again.

Adrian’s First Time Making Noodles.

Yesterday we made noodles.   Audrey wanted to make some.

The ingredients are a bowl, eggs, oil, water, and flour.  You put the flour in the bowl and then you put the eggs in the bowl.  Then the water in the bowl.  And then the oil.  You mix it good.  Then we let the dough sit for awhile.

We put a little bit of flour on the noodle maker and a little on the counter.  Mark went first, he rolled the noodles.  Then Audrey did the same thing as Mark.  Then Adrian did the same thing.  I took pictures of it because it is his first time spinning the wheel.  Then it was my turn and Momma took pictures of me.

We put the noodles in a pot of boiling water.  They cook fast!  Then we ate them with turkey broth and carrots.  I liked them!  I like the skinny noodles!

Then we logged on to Chore Wars.  I don’t know how Daddy got it on there, it is where the firefox was.  Then we can log on and if you did something, you can say what you did and you get points.  You have these little people that are characters of you.

You have to write in your name and then you make a fake name.  My fake name is Princess Renee.  You make your bed, clean off the table, clean off the floor, put your toys away; and you get points.

We are earning points for going out to eat!  I don’t know how many points we need, I forgot, something like around 30?  It is a lot though!

Making Rice Krispy Treats!

Yesterday night, the boys went to Scouts. We made Rice Crispy Treats.  We ate some little marshmallows. Then Momma said, “I have some big marshmallows.” We said, “yes, please!”

After we ate them, Adrian climbed down and he got into mischief!  Maybe he pulled one of the chairs–he is strong enough to–then Adrian got the scissors.  Or maybe the scissors were at the edge of the counter and he got them.  Then he cut some little squares.  Now he just needs to learn how to make some pictures.

First Momma melted some marshmallows in butter.  Me and Audrey put the Rice Crispy in the dish and then I got to mix it! Then we poured it into the pan with the marshmallows. We ate some and smooched it down into the cake thing a majiggy.  Then we put the chocolate chips on.  We held it and it was finished. We just needed to cook it to melt the chocolate chips.  Then Momma took a knife and buttered the chocolate, like you have bread and you want to put the butter on it.  But it was Rice Crispy Treats and you put chocolate on it.

Momma cut it and then we let it sit a little.  Then we ate it while Momma read to us.

I liked it!

Seven pictures, just like how old I am!
