Paper Snowflakes!!

Here it is, the middle of December, and we have no real snow on the ground yet! So I decided it was time to take care of that problem myself. I have made two new friends at my new school, so I invited them over and we made beautiful paper snowflakes together!

This is Kennedy, on the left, and on right is Jayda. I was nervous to start at a new school after we moved, but I shouldn't have been. Kennedy and Jayda are so much fun, I'm glad I met them.

Do you have any snow at your house yet? What fun things are you doing to decorate for the holidays?

Hooooooppy Hooooolloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone!! I hope you've had an amazing day filled with lots of tricks and treats! It was the most beautiful day here today, blue skies and not too cold. Perfect for Halloween - I didn't need a coat this year.

I did something a little different with my pumpkin this year, doesn't he look crazy??

And this year for Halloween I decided to be one of my favorite animals - an owl! I worked so hard on this costume, and I love it.

What were you this year for Halloween? Did you get treats, or give tricks?

Shopping with Suzie!

Fall means Back-to-School, and Back-to-School means time to shop! My friend Suzie and I went shopping for some fall necessities at our favorite shop, Georgell.

Suzie is the best shopping buddy because she has such unique taste - she is so fashion forward and she helps me be brave enough to try new things!

One of the most important necessities in anyone's closet is underwear. Shopping for undies can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, but you've got to do it!

Wearing clean undies is something you should always do, but I think something else we should all do is wear CUTE undies! Even though no one else knows, it makes a day that much more special.

One of my favorite things to shop for is SHOES!!! It's so fun to try all the different kinds on.

These boots are so Suzie. Doesn't she have amazing style?

Glad she was there to give me advice as I shopped!

But the very best part of shopping is enjoying a cupcake on the restaurant patio after it's all done. Suzie and I felt so grown up sitting out there!

Do you like to go shopping? What is your favorite thing to shop for?

I moved!

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged in so long - I had such a busy, busy summer! The busiest thing was that I moved! Have you ever moved before? It's such a long process - both the packing and the unpacking. The best part is getting to set up your new place though, want to see my new room?

This is my desk - where I blog! I love my bulletin board because I keep pictures with my friends there. See the picture of me with Inky? And the one with Lanie? I'm lucky because I didn't move too far away from Lanie, we'll still get to see each other sometimes. I am starting at a new school though, which makes me nervous!

This is my little hedgehog family, aren't they the cutest ever? I keep my games up on the shelf, too. Have you ever played Bop it!? It's so fun, but really tough.

I chose my bed crown above my bed because it reminds me of the outdoors - a big fluffy white cloud, blue sky and the beautiful stars!

I have my ipod and my silly little speaker-man on my nightstand so I can listen to my tunes whenever I want.

My doll trunk sits at the end of my bed. It's one of my favorite things - see how perfectly Samantha fits inside? And there is a perfect little doll-sized drawer for her clothes.

Sunny really isn't supposed to be up on the furniture, but sometimes I let him. Don't tell! He's so big and heavy he makes my bed springs creak!

It feels good to be back blogging again!

PS - you might notice some changes on the blog. The pictures are BIGGER, the background is a little different.

Picnic in the Park

The weather here has been perfect! So perfect that Inky and I decided to go have a picnic in the park. We brought Sunny along to chase away ants.

We also brought along my teddy bear, Albert, and Inky's Icebat.

A picnic blanket...

and some sandwiches...

makes a perfect picnic!

It was nice and sunny, but super windy! Good thing we thought to bring along a kite - perfect kite-flying weather!!

Getting the kite up in the air is always the hardest part. Inky held the string,

And I threw the kite up in the air.

It took a few tries, but at last it was up!

Inky is such a good friend. I'm going to miss her so much when she goes back to New York. Hopefully I'll be able to visit her soon, though!

Inky loves animals and nature - this picture describes her perfectly to me!

Have you been doing anything fun this summer?

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Inky and I had a wonderful Easter Sunday. We made ourselves some silly bunny ears by taping paper onto headbands. I even convinced Inky to wear one of my dresses for the holiday. (Inky doesn't really like dresses.)

Inky and I got fun Easter baskets - guess what was inside both of ours? Bubbles!!

Blowing bubbles is so much fun. It was a little windy, so the bubbles were going everywhere!

Inky and I pretended like the bubbles were magical fairy balls. We had so much fun blowing them and running around chasing them!

Sunny was really interested in the bubbles. He kept watching them and barking.

Then one landed on his nose! He was so surprised!

I think he was just as surprised when it popped!

We also got big delicious chocolate bunnies in our baskets! They were so yummy!

Sunny was really curious about my chocolate bunny too, but I didn't let him get too close. Chocolate is bad for dogs.

I hope you all had a fun Easter, too - with lots of candy and chocolate!

Making Spring Inside

I'm so excited because my friend Inky is here visiting me from New York! I had so many fun things planned out to do with her, but it keeps raining and snowing here. I'm so tired of the snow, I'm ready for Spring and warm weather!

Inky and I wanted to take Sunny for a walk, but it was snowing again. I was so disappointed and feeling low, but then Inky suggested that we could make it Spring inside the house! Inky is so clever.

We pulled out a bunch of craft supplies and got busy.


We cut out butterfly shapes from pretty paper and decorated them.


Then we got really creative. I'll show you how to make a really cool butterfly!

You need two squares of pretty paper, about the same size.


Fold them up like a fan.



Then you need something that holds its shape. I used a twist-tie. A pipe cleaner would work really well, too.


Bend it in half, and then slide your folded up papers inside it. Pinch it together at the top of the papers, and bend the ends into curly antennae.


Now you've made a cute butterfly that you can put anywhere that needs a little bit of Spring!

If you want to see how to make another type of butterfly, visit Inky's blog!

Inky and I taped the butterflies all around my desk. Inky even hung one from the ceiling! Isn't it fun?


Now my desk is all about Spring, even though it's still acting like Winter outside!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Today is one of my favorite holidays - Valentine's Day! I love the opportunity to really show my family and friends how much I care about them.

Do you like my Valentine's outfit? I got the cute zebra graphic from Bunny Cakes blog, here.

Today Caitlin and I made oreo truffles to give out to our friends. They are so easy to make.

First you need a package of oreos.

Crush those oreos up with a rolling pin inside a plastic bag. Once they are crumbly, mix them with a package of cream cheese. Then roll it into little balls.

Chill them in the fridge for a while. Then melt some chocolate and dip away!

You can decorate them with sprinkles, more oreo crumbs, nuts, anything!

Then give them to your friends...

...or not.

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Spend it with the people you care about!
