We went to the Creation Museum.Â It was a surprise from Oma.Â We saw some animals.Â My favorite animal to pet was the goat.Â The camel licked my hand. Â We had fun.Â Here are some pictures of what we saw.
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!
I am thankful for cats, my family, my friends, Grandma and Grandpa, Oma and Opa and Uncles and Aunts.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We went to Pizza Hut and had some pizza.Â We ate it at Oxbow Park, because that’s where Science Sleuths is.Â It was snowing and it was a snow picnic!
Then after Science Sleuths we sled down the hills!Â I liked it.Â Tyler is Miss Krista’s son.Â Miss Krista teaches Science Sleuths and Nature Nuts.Â Tyler went down the hill with me and we flipped.Â It was fun.Â Yes, it was fun.
I had fun on Grandma’s Birthday!
Today, we went to the Trick or Treat Goshen and we trick or treated there.Â When we were done, we put some candy into some bags.Â Every year we pass out candy at Oma’s house, because we have too many!
In my picture I am Queen Susan.Â One day, it was first day Sunday in the first grade Sunday class.Â I forgot to show Mark something and I went into my bag and I found a pattern.Â I wanted it for my birthday.Â Momma fixed it and hid it.Â Today, I found it and I thought she was going to wear it, but…
Yesterday, Mark and Daddy fixed my bike!Â They had to fix my wheel because it was broken.Â It had a little hole in it.
Mark did a good job!Â Thank you, Mark!
Today is Opa’s Birthday.Â Go on Opa’s blog and please write him a note because today is his birthday.Â I don’t know how old he is.
Happy Birthday Opa.Â I love you!
Last Thursday we went to one of Daddy’s cousins–Big Mark’s–house.Â Daddy’s school was having Homecoming.Â Â I will try to write more about Homecoming later.
Saturday night, we went on a hot air balloon.Â We were going camping when we saw a hot air balloon.Â It was tethered.Â Tethered means tied.Â We waited for a couple of minutes.Â We went on it.Â Two came off and three came on.Â then the other two came off, and the other three came on.
It felt fun.Â I could feel a breeze.Â Adrian was nervous when he saw it go up, but when he got on and went up, he liked it.
I liked it.Â I was excited!Â I would do it again.
The ingredients are a bowl, eggs, oil, water, and flour.Â You put the flour in the bowl and then you put the eggs in the bowl.Â Then the water in the bowl.Â And then the oil.Â You mix it good.Â 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.Â Mark went first, he rolled the noodles.Â Then Audrey did the same thing as Mark.Â Then Adrian did the same thing.Â I took pictures of it because it is his first time spinning the wheel.Â Then it was my turn and Momma took pictures of me.
We put the noodles in a pot of boiling water.Â They cook fast!Â Then we ate them with turkey broth and carrots.Â I liked them!Â I like the skinny noodles!
Then we logged on to Chore Wars.Â I don’t know how Daddy got it on there, it is where the firefox was.Â Then we can log on and if you did something, you can say what you did and you get points.Â You have these little people that are characters of you.
We are earning points for going out to eat!Â I don’t know how many points we need, I forgot, something like around 30?Â It is a lot though!
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!
