Where did four years go?

One of these things is not like the others

Three of these characters were in Frozen, and one of these characters wishes she were in Frozen. So, in the words of the song, "can you tell me which thing is not like the others?"

Break out the sandbox

My sandbox has been covered up so long that I almost forgot what was inside. Thank goodness a warm January day allowed me to take a look.

Night gardening

Just planting little seeds on a mild (mild? as in temperature?) January night.

At the car wash, yeah

Taking a spin through Zips gets the car cleaned and me entertained.

Party on, party people

The party circuit for Room 7 continued with Blane's celebration at Acrobatic Academy. My favorite part was the obstacle course.

At the Hop

I dug out the old Halloween costume from 2013 and went to a Sock Hop tonight at Riverside Elementary. It was great fun!

Helen's clubhouse

All one needs is a big blanket and a coffee table, and you have an instant clubhouse for me and all my friends.

Lexi's piano teacher has the world's best rope swing in her backyard. In fact, it was the inspiration for my very own rope swing

Another guest narrator

I've had lots and lots of guest narrators read to me over the years, but I think Samantha gets the prize for traveling the farthest. She came all the way from China to read bedtime stories to me.

Cool treat on a warm day

When it's nearly 70 degrees on a mid-January day, you go and have ice cream.

Meet Mike

My desire to ride the iRobot Roomba is strong, but I'm just too big. He's a new addition to the household. Dad named him Mike, after another guy named Mike that cleans up messes

What's going around?

Unlike ladybugs and lightening bugs, which I love, whatever bug I've caught now is no fun at all.

Sick day

It seems everyone has been getting sick this winter. Despite my best effort, I wasn't able to avoid it.

I like to ride my bicycle

Santa brought me a bike for Christmas, so I was eager to get it out on a nice day and ride it around without so much snow and ice on the ground.

How many books do I want tonight?

National Literacy Month? Heck, it's National Literacy Month every day for me as I can't get enough bedtime stories.
(Jan. 14, 2015)

Who is Jackson Pollock?

Mommy tried to give me some art history in a minute and talk about Abstract Expressionism, but all I really wanted to do was paint. Splatter paint!
(Jan. 13, 2015)

School of Rawk!

Aunt Jaime is storing her drums in Dad's basement, so we decided to start a band. Aren't we awesome?
(Jan. 12, 2015)

Pump It Up again

When it comes to celebrating a birthday, the kids in Room 7 really know how to party.
(Jan. 11, 2015)

Wanting some new wheels

I don't think it's too early to start talking about what kind of car I'm going to drive when it's time for me to start driving myself around.
(Jan. 10, 2015)

Pigtails and Crewcuts

Getting a haircut is so distracting when I'm trying to watch "Frozen" on Blu-Ray.

Grand Poobah

I made this hat at daycare and named myself Grand Poobah of the Loyal Order of Amazing Preschoolers - Lodge 29. Or something.

Clever disguise

Changing into my pajamas means... Instant pink hair!!!

The Doctor will now see you

I got this doctor get-up for Christmas. I'm now qualified to see patients and make important medical decisions. Thanks, Obamacare!

More big changes

Alexis got home from a ski trip today and saw her new bedroom. This means our big bedroom switcheroo is complete.

Cleaning up from Christmas

After taking all of the lights and ornaments off the Christmas tree, it was time to clean up the needles

Picky, Picky

Grammy came to visit from Missouri today. Everyone else ate green chili verde with Hatch green chiles and golden yukon potatoes. I just wanted plain old white rice.

A (post) Christmas miracle

Here I am taking a nap. A daytime nap. And. I. Needed. It.

House call

Dad hasn't been feeling 100% lately. I gave him a quick checkup.

Big changes

I got to Dad's today to discover that big changes had been in the works while I was gone. Alexis and I have switched bedrooms and my new pad is awesome.

Bye-bye, Dear District

After a tasty lunch at Matchbox and a walk down the red carpet of the Marine Barracks, it was time to head home.

Surprise guest narrator

Cousin Andy almost couldn't find Georgia and me when it was time to read bedtime stories because we were camouflaged in matching pajamas Auntie Brynn gave us.

Lending a helping hand

When Georgia fell once, I helped her up, so it was nice of her to return the favor and lend me a hand.
