The Headless Horseman, The School Teacher, and the Covered Bridge.

I designed this LEGO set. My Ichabod Crane has not vanished yet, hopefully he never does. But I did add a head to the Headless Horseman.

World Snowman Day


Today is World Snowman Day! It is not snowmen snow right now but it might be today.

Last week Nora came over and helped us make snowmen. We had fun. She helped me make a BIG snowman. It was probably bigger then Mark! But it fell over in about an hour. We had lots of fun!

Vacation

How Santa goes on vacation. I heard he is going to Hawaii, but first treats his reindeer ice cream at the RedNose ice cream store. It’s Rudolfs side job.

First Snowmen of Season

We had our first snow! It was very nice packing snow and we made snowmen. They were about 5 inches tall. The eyes are M&Ms and the nose is candy corn. When we were done we took out the candy and wrecked our snowmen with snowballs. I hope it snows soon so we can make more snowmen and have a snowball fight!

Playing in Color

Today we went to the Colors for Kids 5K run, they do it once a year. They give you one or two bags of powdered chalk and you decorate yourself and then you run and you get colored all over. It was a 5k run, it felt short. We had fun. I hope we do it again. 

Lights

On Saturday we played with lights. Mommy took long exposure pictures while I stood still and Andrea and Megan traced me with glow sticks and a flashlight. We had fun. I hope to do again soon.
