camper van adventures...

this lego-camper-van set is one of the items i received for Christmas. i built it *pretty much* by myself -- with just a little help from mommy. i also got some new squinkies for Christmas. i enjoy playing with squinkies & legos together. so hulasonnya & the dolphin sisters (sherrin & panama) decided to take the camper van on holiday.

happy turkey day...

you can never give enough thanks, so we celebrated the holiday twice! first we had grammy & pappy over to my house on thursday. i helped mommy make carrot souffle & everyone (besides me!) said it was delish! on sunday we celebrated in huntsville with daddy's family. we roasted marshmallows & the adults had a bit of silly shooting fun. but the hammock fun was definitely my favorite!!

Hello World little dolphin Budding Artist...

certainly, my school has a set of art displayed for each student. i made a cross with purple fin, wing, paw paint etc. mine is the middle one. a turtle with a paper bowl and tissue paper and a caterpillar with circle stamps with tissue paper grass. sarah's cross looked silly right from the start. i held a bucket of purple paint and i dipped it right into sarah's blowhole. "Hoo hoo! Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayaaaaaaaaaayh!!!!!!!!!!" she said as she made the sides of her cross. fifi likes making caterpillars and turtles because of tissue paper. and here i am with my sweet teacher, mrs. callie. and right below milli is my "world" that i painted.

a lazy rainy sunday...

well, it wasn't really THAT lazy, but we were very laid-back today. we went to church this morning & i put my luau t-shirt back on as SOON as we returned home. daddy had started putting out christmas decorations so mommy & i helped with that. i love putting all the nativity people looking at baby Jesus. isn't that how it should be anyway? we looked though some thanksgiving things that i made at school recently. i created a "thankful journal" in which i listed many blessings. and i love my indian headband! then i made some play-doh creations -- hello kitty & fifi. i also made some library books for them to read. daddy has encouraged me to begin reading "the ghost of windy hill." this is one of the play-doh library books that i made too. it's a bit more difficult than any reading i've attempted previously. but it's really holding my interest. in fact, i so enjoy re-reading chapters that we've only made it to chapter 3 so far! but it's getting exciting!
