My self portrait snowman! 🙂
I like playing with my cousin Nora. She moved and lives close to us now! She helped me make this snowman.Me and Nora were going sledding. Since we don’t have a hill, we used Audrey to pull us. It was as much fun as going down hill, but not as fast. Next time, we will try to get Audrey to run.
Then we came inside and Andrea read to us after lunch.
I went sledding yesterday. We had very much fun. Mark and I went sledding and we were seeing who went the furthest. I am pretty sure Audrey won. It is hard to tell who won because sometimes you turn. Adrian was very close to first.
The best part was when we started spinning. We hit a bump and started spinning. It was very fun.
We probably won’t go sledding again until after Mark goes to school. I am glad we could go twice with him this holiday.
I asked Momma if we could go and sled at the park. She said okay if Daddy said it is okay. Daddy said we could! So we went sledding on Christmas morning!
It was very cold, but we played for an hour! I go to go sledding with Daddy and Mark. That is special because Marky has not been home for awhile because he is at college. And it is fun sliding with Daddy!
I got to sled with Momma too. She thought I was going too fast (giggle giggle, snicker snicker).
I hope that we get enough snow that we can go one more time before Mark goes back to school.
Today Andrea, Audrey and I made the first real snowmen of the year!
Here is my snow man story:
Once in a galaxy far far away from here, there were two snowmen. One day one of the snowmen’s head fell off. His friend was sad. Then the sun came out and they disappeared into a pile of water.
Momma is letting me play on “Santa Tracker” when my work is done. The pictures are made with “stickers” that I can choose from and put where I want. I can change backgrounds. I can make the stickers big or little or flip them around.
It is fun! Momma said I can only play till Christmas and then they “ice up” and I can’t play anymore till next year.
I know that there is not a real Santa Claus. There was a Saint Nicholas that was “Santa Claus” but he did not look anything like him! He helped people who needed things. He helped some people who needed money so their daughters could get married.
One thing I like to do though, when I see a Santa Claus, is to ask him for snow. Sometimes, I ask if I could have Rudolph as a pet. It is fun to visit “Santa Claus” though. I like the candy canes he shares too!
We went to a parade with Mark on Saturday. We got to see Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, Elsa, Flynn and Rapunzel! I liked meeting them.
Mark is doing well at school. But I miss him. I am glad he can go to school though.
On Tuesday, I helped with a little kids pumpkin carving class. It was a lot of fun. We got to bring home a lot of pumpkin seeds no one wanted. We made pumpkin seeds changing Mark’s basic recipe.
I really, really like it! I made a Jack-o-lantern out of an extra pumpkin!
Boil 2 cups clean pumpkin seeds about 10 minutes. Drain well. Mix in
Bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes stirring occasionally till dry and brown.
OR bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes till dry.
The other batch we made sweet using cinnamon and sugar and a favorite pumpkin pie spice. Just mix 3 Tbl of butter with the spices to taste. Add a little salt and bake.
