Halloween Parade

Every year at Barley Sheaf, we have a halloween parade! Whether your a princess or a ninja, anyone can come. We get to dress up and walk around the black top with our friends waving to all the parents who show up. Like I said earlier, I have Mrs. Carson. Out of our whole class, she is the only one who likes the phillies, so she was a philly. However once when the phillies won, she wrote a message that was to tell us we are wrong!
I was Padme from Star Wars,and Simon was Han Solo from Star wars, and Madi is going to be a rapper. Tomorrow is Halloween! And we are so happy! :) As you see above, we had our parade.

Gingerbread Man (3)

We left off right where I hoped it didn't harden, lets keep going.

I looked at Simon and he was too busy coloring to look at me looking at him for him to look at the mix (wow a lot of look). I washed my hands then I touched the one of the legs gently. It felt moist, not too hard and not too mushy. I went back to the sink.

4 hours had past and still no decorating him. We had gotten our flu shots, H1N1s, and played. Not to metion in the pan came the sample of the gingerbread man dude so we could get an idea how to make it, and dad put the pic in my room. Yeah!!!!

Still I wondered about this gingerbread dude. Would I like him? Will Kasey eat him before we put the gum drops on???

I waited for dinner to come and that lasted 30 minutes, not to mention having to clean up 8 spots (Mom, Dad, Madi, Alli, Simon, Kasey, Grandma, and Moe) one after the other. I went upstairs and hoped Our Gingy wouldn't crack.

I just hoped we could make gum drop buttons.

Occasion???? Not yet.......

To be Contiuned............

Gingerbread Man! 2

Where did I leave off? Oh yes right when we saw the kits.

So I asked my father if we could get it. He said yes, because he knew I wanted one. So I grabbed it and quickly walked to the register. Right then I said we need the mix to make it. We thought for a minute, then dad said we could go to Shop Rite. Well Mom and I were supposed to do that when we got home. We got to the car and unexpectly drove over to Shop Rite. Well this sounded confusing. Mom was going food shopping when we came home, but Dad and I went before coming home, how bazar. I also noticed that we didn't get anything else, just the mix.

I grabbed the "mix" and put it in the basket. My turn to carry someting for once. So we got to the register and went home. I shared the pan and how cool it would be to use this mix. But of course, we didn't have enough. How come???? Well lets put one thing straight we had 1 arm. I thought for sure it would all melt, but it didn't. We put the other flavor in the fridge and put our "Gingerbread man" in the oven. I showed Mom and then we zipped off.

Surely I knew we would be there for a while, but we were only gone for 1 hour, not 2. When we got home, Grandma was here. I showed our Gingerbread man and she thought it was cool. So we had waited for it to cool, letting it sit out with nothing covering it. Hopefully it won't harden.

That was NOT the occasion.

To be Continued....................

Gingerbread man!


Ok so maybe I have made tons of gingerbread men before, but this time is not the same. This time instead of Gingerbread we used-ehh maybe I should let you figure it out. Ok???

So this year with a rare occasion, I watched Shrek with Kasey. Thats not the occasion. I watched and was curious than bored than curious. Right after that, I saw this awesome little Gingerbread dude. I though that he was awesome. After that, I watched Shrek 2. I saw the Gingerbread man again-turns out his name is Gingy. So I was being a little crazy everytime he showed up. Kasey was more curious about Shrek than I was. So I was flying solo for this one. :(

Gingy is a little Gingerbread man who has 3 gum drop buttons and frosting on his arms and legs. As you see in the picture above, Gingy is small. But still that is not the occasion. I got so into this movie and I made a story about him. But of course, I had to watch a lot more to get the characters straight again. When I was-ehh younger I watched Shrek. I had only remembered two of the main characters: Shrek and Fioanna. So I had to watch to get all my characters straight.

Remember how I told you Gingy's name???? Well I told you that because my story Gingy is named Mr.Gingerbread man. But that doesn't make my story bad right???? Well turns out It is bad to me.

So after watching Shrek 1 and 2, I asked dad if we could go get a Gingerbread man kit. So we went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. We looked around, and saw that they only had Giant Gingerbread man kits.

To Be Contiuned......................................

Mischief night?

If you are reading this, you know that halloween is 2 days away. We are all going (maybe not Madi) and will get some fun out of this. But everyone knows the night before is mischief night, Right???????
Well tomorrow we will see about that....................................................................................................

3 more Tests to talk about!

Simon and I had some tests lately, and I would like to chit chat with you about them.

Math test! I had a test on math. Easy of course, but not everything went right for everyone. I had to know my lines, rays, angles, shapes, and all of that stuff. Turns out I did well. Math is my least favorite subject, but I am really good at it!

Spelling Test! Simon had his spelling test. The chunk of the week was -at. Of course he got 100%! Heres the sentence he wrote: I love my fat cat. Know what fat cat??? Of course the whole class did that sentence. Simon is really good at spelling and I'm not surprised.

Spelling Test! I had my spelling test the same day Simon did. Now my words were a lot diffrent than Simon's. My pattern was "double letters and add ing". Some of the words I had were planning, trainning, chopping, and others. I got another A+! We are on fire with these tests!

This year, is my last year at Barley Sheaf, and they let the 4th graders have 2 concerts. You can join chorus, chimes, or advance recorder. They are all free, but you have to try out. So I went at 8 in the morning to school to try out. Well a lot of kids wanted to try out, luckly I was one of the best. Ms.Golding, our music teacher choose 13 kids for winter and 13 for spring. I got chosen for spring. I wanted winter, oh well. Chimes Ring like a beautiful bell. Thats it for now- TTUL!

School: Simon's Spelling Test!

Simon had his first spelling test yesterday. Congrats Simon! His chunk of the week was -an. He knew all the words, like van, tan, man, ran, and plan. I was impressed when I saw his paper! Simon got 100%! That would be no surprise for me, but for him, wow! See you next time on our next test!
