Button Pushing

Posted on


Evryone should vote! It’s very good and very fun. I went with Hannah when she voted and I saw that you get to push buttons! She told me I couldn’t push any, but I know it’s fun to push buttons.

Yard Work

Posted on

You know gardening isn’t the only yard work that has to happen around our house.  Now that it’s fall I’m pretty busy helping Almost-Uncle Corey keeping things looking good.  I mow the lawn…

I check the walls for cracks…

I yell to be sure I scare any neighborhood bears away…

I inspect the bridges to be sure they’re safe…

I show Mom where all the leaves are…

I rake up all the leaves…

I make sure the leaves are happy by playing with them…

And I make sure to take cover when the leaves play back.

Fall is pretty busy around here.

My 1st Birthday

Posted on

On my birthday, mom put a hat on my head. I thought people were supposed to be nice to you on your birthday, but she was being so mean!  She did let me eat a cupcake at Hannah’s house to make up for it.  She must have felt really bad about trying to make me wear a hat because she also threw a party for me and a whole bunch of people came and everyone looked at me and clapped!  That is my favorite thing.  I remember at Aunt Lauren’s wedding when that happened I liked it a lot.  But now I know how to clap too, so it’s even more fun.  Do they have jobs where you get clapped at? That’s what I want to be when I grow up.

At my party, there were balloons and I had so much fun playing with them.  There were also grandmas and I had so much playing with them. There was one grandpa, he’s always fun, but then I was a little confused about the rest of the people.  I think they were all named aunt or uncle.  Great Aunts, Great Great Aunts, Sort of Aunts and Almost Uncles.  I don’t know what that means, but if I just learn to say Auntie, I should be able to get what I need.

Thank you everyone for all the very nice presents.  Some of my favorite things were some pans that Hannah, Ryan, Max and Oliver gave me and a jack-in-the-box monkey guy who hides and then pops out at you. Maw Maw T, I liked the birthday outfit you made for me sooo much. Especially the ribbon sleeves.  So much that I decided to take the ribbons off so I could play with them better.  That’s why I am not wearing my pretty outfit you made in the pictures.

Sort-of-Aunt Sarah made me a very pretty cake, it even matched the decorations.  She showed it to me and said I could smash it, but I did not want to mess up all her hard work, so I just handed mom the berries off the top then waited for her to cut me a piece.  I also had a nice bib Grandma Kim made me so I had to be careful to just take small bites.

After the party, Grandma Susan stayed to play with me for a long time.  I liked that a lot.  I didn’t have to share my toys with Max for a whole week.

Thanks everybody for coming and clapping at me.  If you want to come do it again some time you can.
