When I Was Little

Here is a movie of me when I was 18 months old. It's one of my favorite movies. This movie is about Halloween and the first time I helped carve a pumpkin and get a costume. I thought you might like to see this because it's only a week until Halloween. The little girl who was also dressed up as a pumpkin is my best friend Sabrina.

My Best Friend Sabrina

My best friend Sabrina went to the Westlands Park with me on Monday afternoon. We had a blast climbing a rock wall that looked like a giant tree, exploring a two-story tree house and sliding on a zip line. This park has a lot of interesting equipment.

In addition to the park on Monday, on Wednesday, Sabrina and I had a sleepover at my house. We went out to dinner at Chili’s. I got a cheeseburger with fries and Sabrina got macaroni and cheese with cinnamon apples. After that we came home and Sabrina and I got into our pj’s. Next we watched a movie and then my mom read to us. Later we talked about stuff, we read to ourselves and last we fell asleep. In the morning we ate breakfast and played for a while.

Tomorrow we are going to see Honk at the Arvada Center for the Arts. Honk is a play that is about the ugly duckling story. It is a musical. I am excited to go with my family, Sabrina and her Nana.

Morning with Merrick

Phew! Watching a baby is hard work. I went to see Merrick and Ms. MaKayla on Monday morning at their house. As soon we got there we waited for Merrick to wake to get up from his nap. After Merrick woke up he played with a toddler table. I sat behind Merrick so he did not tip the table on him self. Merrick also played with stacking bowls. Photo time! Ms. MaKayla put Merrick's skeleton pajamas on him and I put on my skeleton costume. His real costume for Halloween is a giraffe. Lunch time for Merrick - he ate baby cereal and he went ahhhh when Ms. MaKayla set the green beans down for a minute. Merrick thought he wasn't going to get the green beans but he did. It was an awesome day.
