Christmas Week

I was off of school this week. On Tuesday, Mommy and I went to the mall. After that we went to the Outdoor World which is a really big, cool place. I got my hair cut and then we went to a bookstore. Then we went to Jay-C's (a grocery store). On Wednesday, I played with Austin.

Of course the big event this week was Christmas. On Christmas Eve, we went to a service at Northside, and I saw Noah and Jacob, my friends that live across the street there. When we got home, we got on the webcam so we could talk to the Wrights at Grandmother's house. I got to talk to Weston, Uncle Daniel, Aunt Kim, Aunt Sarah, Grandmother, Aunt Gina, Uncle Perry, Uncle Dwayne, Aunt Marilynn, Aunt Jill, Uncle Jonathan, and Granddaddy on the webcam.

On Christmas Eve night, I opened one present. It was dinosaur pajamas.
On Christmas morning, I got a Triceratops dinoworks and a T-rex dinoworks. I got Stare (a game), a LEGO car, Hotel for Dogs (the movie), binoculars from Grandmother, the Dangerous Book for Boys, a laser game, Mega T-rex, a subscription to the magazine ASK, the USA puzzle book, Night at the Museum II, and more. I also got some stocking stuffers, and my favorite is a dog that barks, walks and wags his tail.
We went to the neighbors' house for breakfast on Christmas morning. It was good, and I got to play with friends like Noah, Jacob, and Zack. I ran around like crazy. And after awhile I got tired. After we got home, I got sick on Christmas Day. So Christmas afternoon I didn't feel very well. We watched two movies - Hotel for Dogs and Up- that day.

Now we are getting ready for Grandma and Grandpa Johnson to come visit tomorrow from NC. One day we are planning to go to the Louisville Science Center to see the Titanic exhibit with them. Another day we might go to Mammoth Cave.

I get MORE dinosaurs!

Last weekend we had company over for dinner and played some UNO. I played ping pong and Hot Hoops and shot the Nerf gun with Mike Jr. Then on Sunday we went to Daddy's work Christmas party and I got some more dinosaurs! Yay!

I got to go to the Christmas shop at school and buy presents for Grandma, Grandpa and Mommy and Daddy.

On Friday, our last day of school, we had a Christmas party. We played games and ate cookies and got goodybags which were full of more chocolate.

Books I read this week: Winter of the Ice Wizard (a Magic treehouse book)

For my AR, I have 26.4 points now. AR stands for Accelerated Reading and my school librarian gives us points for books that we read and answer quizzes for. I'm still in 6th place in my class. A few weeks ago, I was second to last in my class, so I started reading more AR books and taking quizzes and moved up to 6th place pretty fast. But now I'm clinging to 6th. I like to try to stay ahead of my friend Ian. He's in 7th place right now. Julia in my class has about 100 points! Emily (who is the other Elias's sister) has about 400 and some points! She's in 4th grade.

I'm excited about Christmas! It's five days away. On Christmas morning I will open all my presents. Sometimes on Christmas we eat pumpkin pancakes.

Last night I helped Mommy bake pumpkin muffins and chocolate chip cookies for the neighbors like Noah and Jacob and Caylee and Austin and Ireland and Landon and Zach and Taylor and all their moms and dads. We would have made some for John Thomas and Tucker, but they moved back to Louisiana over Thanksgiving. I miss them. They were my friends.

Grandma and Grandpa Johnson are going to come visit for Christmas. They are very nice. They used to have a dog named Jaxie, but he died. He was my buddy. He slept in my room and even in my bed when I used to go visit Grandma and Grandpa. His real name was Ajax. They still have 2 dogs named Crispy and Choco. They are 5 years old and are friendly dogs.

The End

Merry Christmas!

My life this week

I had Cub Scouts on Monday. I went to PE on Monday, and on Tuesday I went to music and the library. We are having our book fair this week, and there are lots of neat books that I want. We've already bought 3 or 4 books. On Wednesday I went to chapel. On Thursday I had PE and music again. On Thursday night I had my Christmas program with the 1st and 2nd graders at my school. Mommy and Daddy came to see it, and it was very very cold outside that night. Friday I had computer and art. After school I went to see my friend Austin for a little while. This morning I watched Dinosaur Train and it was a rerun again!

Books I read this week: Mummies in the Morning and Dragon at Dawn

Last weekend we put up our Christmas tree. It was pretty. This year is Daddy's year to have white lights. Mommy and I have had colored lights for a few years now, so it was Daddy's turn to have white lights.

My favorite subject at school is math.
Last night we watched the Incredibles. We hadn't watched that in awhile.

Juneau has been sleeping a lot and reports that everything under the 2-foot level in the house is working okay.
