making forts

One of my favorite things to do is make forts. I make them out of chairs and blankets and cushions from the couch! It's really cool because whenever the kids want to have a fort, they always ask me! And once my brother Andrew told me that I made the best forts. Isn't that so cute?

And sometimes we get to sleep in them at night. I never really get to sleep in it because it's too hot in there. But my 2 little brothers always sleep in there no matter what. Whether it's hot or cold! They love to sleep in forts. They're always asking my mom if they can sleep in there at night.

And I always make tunnels in them. Those are the bedrooms. Me, Cameron, Caleb and Andrew play a game in the fort. It's like we're out in the wilderness and the fort is our house. And Caleb and Andrew are me and Cameron's sons! And we pretend that Andrew is 3 and Caleb is 2. And we pretend that Andrew's name is "Tom" and Caleb's name is "Roger". And so that's really fun to do!

On Saturday my friend, Hannah S., came over and she had brought a present for me! It was a really cute doll. And the doll's name is Grace and it was really cool because you can really feed her and she can really go to the bathroom. It's really cool. And so I have a lot of diapers!
And so before that when she came over she had brought her bathing suit. Cameron had bought a little pool and so we jumped in there and played in there and it was really fun. And it was really fun because when we sprayed the hose in her dog's mouth he would be really funny and eat it! And so she said that she wanted to play capture the flag and there were just enough people to have even sides to play. And so we had so much fun playing it. And then we went inside and did some other stuff. So I had a lot of fun with her!

making pasta

My mom got this pasta maker and after she was done making pasta, she let me do some! And it was really fun. First you take the dough and then you put it in one of the things to flatten it and then when it's all flattened, you put it in the thing that makes it so it is the shape of spaghetti. After my mom had made all of it we ate it for supper!

shirt painting

I got this set of fabric blow pens. For my time with Mom, we took the blow pens and took one of my tee shirts and wrote on my shirt with the pens. It came with these stencils and we took the design of the stencil and started coloring my shirt by blowing the top of the pens. And I had so much fun!

I just learned how to play cribbage. I love playing with my brothers because they learned how to play cribbage too. And we love playing cribbage together! Because almost every day we play it.
One time when I was playing my dad (he's really good at it too) he skunked me! I can't wait til I can skunk him!

AJ's birthday party

Saturday we went to AJ's birthday party. His mom used spray paint to draw lines of a football field in his yard. Nanny and Grandpops were cleaning out the camper. I got to come in with Nanny on the bed! Me and Hannah got to go in there by ourselves when Nanny and Grandpops left. We played house. And then we went outside and played with AJ's new scooter. (He let us play with it.) Then we played on the swing. There was one swing that we all liked the best and we would always race to get to it! There was another swing that the other person would have to go on if the other person beat them to the best swing.

We had presents for AJ. The presents were a scooter, a Backyard Football computer game, a pop up goal, 2 Super Soakers, a ball that is hard to describe but really cool, Yankees slippers, a football, gummi worms, and Yankee peanuts (he loves the Yankees!).

Then we had cake and icecream. It was so good! Then we went outside to play again.

fun day at Hannah's

Today was one of the funnest days that I've ever had at my friend Hannah's house. We started playing John and John. We started hiding behind this rock. In front of the rock there was a tree. And there was a little hole inside the tree and we could make a fire inside there (just for pretend). And then we took this big piece of bark and there was this dead tree that was on the ground. We scraped some of the wood off of it and put it inside the bark to make food that was good for us. And then we put some dry dirt and moss for the spice. We put some nuts with stuff inside them in the bark too. And then we found these flat rocks and one piece of wood. We put that piece of wood on the bottom and we piled some rocks on top. And then we found a piece of cement. We put that on the top right next to the tree where all the rocks were and we pretended that it would stay nice and warm right next to the burning hole in the tree. Then, so it wouldn't blow away, we put leaves on top of it and a rock on top of the leaves.
Then we saw the boys (we pretended they were Indians) running in the woods next to our camp! So we ran away and we found this wicked awesome new fort! There were these three tress next to each other. We decided to make a fire right there inside the trees. Then we took this big huge piece of bark and then we put dry dirt and pine needles on top of it. And then those little nuts that we found before. And then we made these beds inside the shade. First we swept away the pine needles in the shape of our beds. Then we found a piece of wood or a rock and we sprinkled moss or pine needles on top of the rock. And then we slept. It was really cool.
Then we went inside and played with our dolls and had snacks.


I went over to my friend Bethy's house. We went upstairs to her room and we played with her dolls! Their dresses are so cute. I pretended they went to school. It was so much fun! And then we played a game but we got tired of it....

And then we played this game with Jennifer and Brianna. It was called Clue. It was so much fun. We didn't get to play the whole game because it was lunch time. For lunch we had a bunch of stuff. It was sandwiches, raisins, pretzels, apples, cheese nips, carrots with dip, and lemonade. It was really good!
After lunch we went outside. They had a wicked cool swingset! We played that there were certain kind of teams and there were bad guys and good guys. The bad guys would try to break into our fort. We would try to run away or try to fight them There was jail-it was wicked cool- and on the bottom there was a secret door that we could open up. We could climb up somewhere and slide down on the ice. After that we played outside for a little more.

Then we went inside and played Apples to Apples. First we played the Junior one and then we played the adult one. When we were playing the adult Apples to Apples we had a snack called Amish Friendship Bread. Then we went home. It was a really long drive!

This is a picture of Bethy and me at Camp this summer :)

Thursday at Hannah's

I got to pick up the chickens when I went to Hannah's house yesterday. They were so cute! We made up a game called John and John. We pretend that we are John and John and that we are twins. We pretend that we ran away from the orphanage and the Indians are after us. What we do is we hide from the boys and we pretend they're Indians! We run away from them. And we play on the big rocks- that's our fort. Sometimes we pretend to get caught. And then we go inside and play with our dolls. It's so much fun! My dolls' names are Molly and Polly- they're twins. Hannah's doll's name is Sally. She makes clothes for her dolls. They are so cute!
