On Saturday there was a Halloween Carnival at my school. Actually, it was supposed to be on Halloween but since the fires were during Halloween time, they couldn't do it then and changed the name to Fall Festival.
At the Festival there were games, jumpy slide thingies, food, light sticks and there was a fortune teller. A lot of my friends were there and it was fun.
At the end of the carnival, there was a raffle drawing. People bought tickets for a Nintendo DS and a MP3 Player. I really wanted the Nintendo DS but I really thought I was not going to win so I went home.
Later my friend called and in an exciting voice, he said "YOU WON THE NINTENDO DS!" I was so excited, I was jumping up and down and running all over the house because I couldn't believe that I had won. It's much better than a Gameboy. It can use Nintendo DS games in it and Gameboy games. I like that because I have a lot of Gameboy games that I can still play.
The next day my Uncle came to my house and I asked him if he could take me to buy a Nintendo DS game called Pokemon Pearl and we went to Best Buy and it ended up costing more than I thought it would. And I didn't have enough money. So my Uncle used his money and he paid half and I paid half. My Uncle Jeff is really nice and he's the best Uncle in the world. I love him so much.
After I got my game I started playing it right away. I really like it. Here's a picture of me with my Nintendo DS.
