Dance RecitalJanuary 25, 2012
It’s almost here.
My winter recital! I love this one because I get to dress up in white, and feathers and sparkles, like a snow queen! Of course, I’m not the ONLY snow queen. There are other friends in my dance class that dress in the same outfit. But it’s still really fun because mom does my makeup and I even get to wear sparkles on my FACE!
I know my brother is jealous; he just doesn’t want to admit it. But he always does crazy face paint for Halloween, so it pretty much evens out. Like last year he was a zombie, so his whole face was a creepy grey white and his eyes were all black.
Have you ever had to wear face paint for something? Isn’t it fun to dress up, even if you aren’t performing for anyone? I will ALWAYS love it!
Catch ya later!
Wintering BirdsJanuary 23, 2012
I made bird feeders last week with my neighbors and the birds in my yard are LOVING them! There are a couple pairs of Cardinals that keep coming back for more. So sweet! Cardinals are cool because they stick around all year. They don’t migrate to warmer climates like some birds do.
They are the most beautiful bright red birds! Actually, the males are bright red and the females have more brown feathers, but they look so much alike you can tell when they are together. They also sound so beautiful. I think Cardinals are probably my favorite bird.
Do you know a lot about birds? Do you have a favorite bird? Teach a friend about them. It’s always cool to learn new stuff and who knows, maybe they know something about birds that they can teach you, too!
Snow DayJanuary 18, 2012
We finally got a snow day today! And it snowed A LOT! So I wonder if we’ll even have school tomorrow. I haven’t gone outside yet because it’s still dark. But when my alarm woke me up and I saw that it was all white outside, I ran downstairs to check the news, and sure enough, NO SCHOOL! Man, since I already did my homework now I get to work on my buddy’s birthday present!
My friend’s birthday is right around Valentine’s Day, which is February 14, so she is having a pink birthday party. She said that just means that EVERYTHING is pink: the cupcakes, the icing, the plates, the napkins, her outfit, the decorations, her dog’s outfit, and on and on… My gift is going to be totally pink so it fits in. I’m gonna make her one of those cool fleece blankets, the ones you make that have knots all around the edges that you don’t have to sew.
Yup, perfect. Plus, it’s still cold in February here, and everyone could always use a cozy blanket, right?
Talk to ya later!
