Santa Parade in Espanola

I was making a mountain with the snow.

Big Uncle Matt and cousin Sam.

Nova throwing snow on the street.

They were wearing red. They were my favourite part of the parade.

Figure Skater float.

It had lots of light.

The horses had decorations on them.

Santa was in a sleigh. There was lights on the sleigh.

Sorry for the lack of updates on Calliope's blog. She has gotten very busy with school, piano and now skating lessons. Will try to post again this week with her Winter Sing at school and a very loose tooth that may fall out before we head north for the holidays.

This is what Calliope said Friday morning at the school assembly. Not exactly sure what the topic was but she brought it home and practiced the night before.
"In Canada the birthday child is chased and caught and their nose is greased with butter. The greased nose makes the child too slippery for bad luck to catch!"
Will try to remember the camera and take pictures of Calliope at her skating lessons tomorrow.

The Character Blog

This is the BFG and Sophie. 'BFG' stands for 'Big Friendly Giant'. There are bad giants in it. The BFG is good. Papa read the BFG to me. I really like the book. How about you read it too?

This is 'Alice in Wonderland'. I watched the movie of it. She put some flowers on her cat. It was crazy and I liked it. You should watch it too.

This is 'The Flight of the Dodo'. The penguin pooped in the middle of the geese. The geese pooped on the penguin. This book is about birds that cannot fly. They make a flying machine. It is very funny. You should read it too.

This is the 'Space Chimps' movie. They flew in a rocket ship. They found 'Kilowatt'. They got back to Earth. You should see it too.

This is 'India the Moonstone Fairy'. She has a jewel that looks like a circle. Her shoes glow pink and blue. Rachel and Kirsty help her. It is a fairy chapter book. India has a flower in her hair and on her dress.

This is 'Sophie the Sapphire Fairy'. Her jewel is a diamond and her diamond is blue. It is a fairy chapter book too. I read these fairy books with Mama.

My Special Post

I made this bag because I wanted to. I like ballerina's. It looks like she is doing the sugarplum fairies.

The rose is from my old "Hello Kitty" backpack. (The bag is reversible).

Last Sunday night I lost my tooth in bed. The tooth fairy brought me 2 quarters.

This is my first timeline ever. It was my homework.

Going Birding

I went birding with my family on the boardwalk, and we saw lots of ducks.

There is a bird sleeping on the log.

The egret is finding some food.

The ducks are with a tree and finding some food.

We throw rocks off the tower.

The swan is swimming with the lilypads.

I am taking a picture of the sky.

A Calliope Update

Made the computer by myself and the computer is like Papa's computer.

I got my driver's license at Storyland. And I drove a purple car, #8.

I got my library card at the library.

I drew this at school of me riding in Cinderella's Pumpkin coach at Storyland.

I drew this at school of me and Zoe at Sesame Place.

This is my piano lesson book. I have my first lesson tomorrow.
