Christmas

On Christmas Eve night I got to open one present. It was from my Uncle Jeff who came to spend the night. It was a Ben 10 character. His name is Benwolf. He is really cool. Here's a picture of him.

The next day my Uncle and I opened our stockings. He got a screaming Homer pen that says "Ahhhh This is the greatest day of my life." I got two packs of Skittles and Benwolf ate them all. He said they were yummy.

When it was time to open presents, my mom came. My mom is nice. She's brown but I don't live with her. She lives near Old Town. I love her. I couldn't believe all the presents she brought me. My favorite thing that she gave me is a Block Zone. Here's a picture of my mom. She is very pretty. She also gave me a helicopter that you control to try to pick up little boxes with a hook. I liked having her with us. It was fun.



My favorite present of all is one simple thing--a Boston Red Sox hat from my Uncle Jeff. He loves the Red Sox and so do I. They won the World Series this year in baseball. I like them because they are a good team and I like red. My friend Tyler likes them, too.



My grandparents got me something I really wanted. It is an I-Dog Pup. It does its own tunes, wobbles it head and reacts to music. Like this.......

Isn't he cute?



My tutor in Italy Valentina sent a present for me and one for my gramma and grandpa. When I opened it was a Leonardo da Vinci book. I really like Leonardo da Vinci things because I like to learn how t o make things like with my erector set. I've read 10 pages of it all ready with Yolanda my Italian tutor here. The book is in Italian.




After my Uncle Jeff's friend Sally came with her dog, Bear. It has a medium size body and very short legs. He can sit up on his rump and his front legs sticking up. It's really cute. Sally is very nice. She's fun to be with and so is Bear. When Bear is around, Scratch gets jealous.

When it was time for her to leave, Bear didn't want to leave. He was laying on the grass and didn't move cuz he wanted to stay with me.

My grandma got a game called Mancala. It is so fun. I beat her two times in a row.

It was a fun day and then I had to go to sleep. Then the next day I played with all my toys.

Bye--see you next time.

Extreme Cookie Time

Yesterday me and my friend Hannah baked cookies. They were very good. They were shaped as Christmas trees and candy canes. Christmas trees were green and candy canes were red, of course. We had fun doing them. This is a video of me and her making the cookies.



She has a very tight grip. When she kept grabbing my shirt, it was really hard to get out. We play together a lot. She came over again today and we watched a Christmas movie called "A Fruitcake Christmas."

Sorry--gotta go. I gotta cold and I'm sneezing a lot and sniffling and...you get the picture.

Merry Christmas from me and my doggie, Scratch.

Samaritan's Purse

Sorry I took so long to write a blog entry. I'm just too busy. I have school, football, Italian lesson, friends, karate, church, helping girls in soccer practice and walking Scratch. I'm just way too busy.

All year long I have been saving up my Jesus money and I finally used it for Samaritan's Purse. I bought things that children who don't have anything need. And we put them in shoeboxes and wrapped them up.

We put things like toothpaste, toothbrush, toys like balls, Spiderman disc shooters, little stuffed animals (not as big as my dog), dolls, jump ropes and a few other things. Somethings were for girls and somethings were for boys (for sure the dolls were for girls.) I did two boxes for girls and two boxes for boys.

These were the things for the boys' boxes.

These were for the girls' boxes.

It was fun getting all the stuff with my money. We went to the 99¢ Store. Me and my gramma wrapped the shoe boxes in Christmas wrapping.


I put a note and a picture inside each of the boxes.

This was my note.

After we got it done, we took the shoe boxes to the Mail Boxes Etc. store. They were collecting them so they could mail them to Samaritan's Purse.

Mail Boxes Etc.

Last year I helped Ethiopia and Alaska. Here's a link to what I wrote then The Meaning of Christmas.

I really like Samaritan's Purse. I have a good friend that I have never seen before-Franklin Graham. He is very nice. Please send things to people who need them. Jesus will really like that.

Ho, Ho, Ho--Merry Christmas.
