Light Up Mt. Dora
On Friday, December 1st we went to Light Up
Mt. Dora. Mom, Dad, and I went to Grandma and Grandpas
house. Aunt Beth, Trevor, and Alexis met us at Grandma's
house. Jeff Copas, a friend of my Dad's and Aunt Beth's was
there too. There were lots of houses lit up. It was real
beautiful. There was also entertainment. My favorite was the juggler. Trevor got a balloon.
On Saturday, December 2nd, we went to the Pet
Fair. The Pet Fair is a fund raiser that is held at the
Orlando Science Center each year. Reindeer was really excited
to come. I enjoyed playing in the "snow", even though it was
really ice. Me and Dad rode this really cool flying
After the Pet Fair, I had a Fun Meet at
gymnastics. A Fun Meet is a gymnastics meet where there are no
judges. The pre-team did it to practice for the real meet that is coming up in January.
Mom's New Car
Mom's dream came true. She got her
dream car on Friday the 8th. It was just like the one she saw
at the auto show last month, except she got the color she
On Tuesday, December 19th, we had a party at
school. My mom and dad came to help out. There were lots
of cool games and art activities that Mrs. Olsen planned for
us. My favorite was the snowman bookmark that we made.
We also had lots of good treats, like brownies, cookies, and cake. I had lots of
On Friday the 22nd we went to a party at the Garrisons. My mom
talked about math stuff. I got lots of Harry Potter
stuff from some of my mom's friends.
On Saturday the 23rd, we went to Grandma and Grandpas. Me,
Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Beth, Uncle Butch, Trevor, Alexis,
Great-Grandma Rhodes, and Aunt Helen were all there. I got
lots of neat gifts. My favorite was a scooter. We had a
wonderful dinner and it was a great night.
On Christmas day, Grandma, Poppop, and Uncle Denny came to our
house. I got a hermit crab kit, Harry Potter stuff, lots of
balls - baseball, soccer, and a big red bouncy ball.
In the afternoon, Grandma, Grandpa, and Great-grandma Rhodes came
over. Mom made dinner for everyone. I got body art
crayons from Jody on Christmas eve. I showed them to Grandma
Roberts and she got all excited. She painted a bunch of stuff
on me. Grandma Rhodes and I ended up looking like cats after
she was done.
The Phantom of the Opera
On Saturday, the 30th, we went to see The
Phantom of the Opera at the Tampa performing Arts Center with
Grandma and Grandpa Roberts. It was one of
our Christmas gifts from them. I liked it. The best
part was when they used all this mist to make it look like the boat
was floating. The funniest actor was the king who
kept trying to jump up on the elephant but kept falling back down because he was too short and
the queen who couldn't sing.
We celebrated New Years back at grandma's house. I made my
family stay up until midnight, even though they wanted to go to bed
Happy New Year
