What a crazy month it’s been! I stayed super busy this holiday season. My mom visited my class & read The Night Before Christmas. We all made elf hats.
That last picture, the top four flags are the flags that I made, that represent me.
I am very into doing arts & crafts right now, & a super fun one we did on Christmas Eve this year was …. I elfed myself.
I also helped my mom make cookies. I was begging her to make gingerbread cookies that we could shape like little gingerbread men & I could decorate with some icing. On Christmas Eve, we finally made the cookies! I kept telling my mom, “Mom, be careful.” “Hey, Mom. Be careful. With the gingerbread men. Because one might jump out & run away.”
I was so happy, after all the counting down, when Santa’s big night finally came!!
When I woke up the next morning I could barely contain my excitement! Right away I noticed there were some big presents from Santa, & our stockings were full of stuff, & Santa had put bows on our elves!
It was an amazing Christmas, & I kept telling my mom how lucky we are!!
I think my favorite gift was a new helmet & a new big boy scooter. (Like Cal’s.)
Of course, since I got a new helmet & scooter, Charlie got a new helmet & (well, my old) scooter.
Another exciting gift we got was superhero rain boots from Aunt Amatey.
Well I decided it would be very cool to wear my Superman costume with my new Superman boots, & Of course my mom wanted to take my picture. Well, *someone* was not happy that I was mugging for the camera, pushed his way past me saying, “Take me! Take me! Take me!”
Tonight was our big New Year’s Eve Party! We had so much fun! We got party hats & horns & noisemakers & ring pops.
We wrote out our resolutions, & I illustrated mine.
We counted down to the New Year (at around 7:00PM). Twice.
We used food coloring & shaving cream to paint in a blue bath.
Overall, I’d say a pretty good ending to a pretty good year. Here’s to 2015! Peace & prosperity to all.
