My school had our Thanksgiving feast the other day and boy do I have a lot to be thankful for…..I have a cool dog, I have rooms full of toys, I eat lots of candy, I run the show at my house….it’s good to be king. And I know school cafeterias have a bad reputation for food quality, but my school makes the best pumpkin pudding EVER!!! I look forward to this feast every year just for that alone. My folks weren’t wild about trying it so I ate theirs – yummo! I thought my folks skipped the pudding because they wanted to save room for the turkey, potatoes, dressing, green beans, and rolls, but they didn’t really eat much of that either so not sure what they know that they’re not telling me. I was fine in my ignorance-is-bliss-world eating the turkey, potatoes, and rolls.

After all the pudding was gone, I hung out with some friends before heading back to class. I think I ate too much tryptophan in the turkey because I could’ve used a nap….or more pudding.




March/April Baggies

Well, only 8 days left in the school year and my folks are still going strong on the baggies. They’ve fallen into a Pokemon theme for the most part, but have deviated from time to time. Wonder if they can keep it up and close out the school year strong.

Dec/Jan/Feb baggies

Yep, 3 more months of baggies by my folks. I wonder when they will run out of material to draw – oh well, not my problem.


This past week has been awesome! No school Monday or Tuesday because McKinney was a winter wonderland with snow and ice shutting down school – it pretty much shut down the metroplex because this is Texas y’all and we don’t do snow and ice well. Our city essentially shuts down for a couple of days once a year so that isn’t enough for us to remember how to function in this environment. Us kids don’t mind though because it means a snow day for us. Parents may have mixed feelings about snow days – especially after a few days of snow and ice tracked in all over the house. Now teachers I’m sure don’t like snow days because they don’t get to see our faces and hear all of our voices – simultaneously and constantly. Anyway, soon enough (or too soon) we will all be back to normal.

In addition to playing outside, I helped my daddy shovel snow and ice off the driveway and sidewalks – he didn’t even ask me to help – somehow he pulled some Jedi mind trick and made think it was fun. Now our perceptions of my performance varied a bit….

My view…

Dad’s view…

And somewhere between the two lies the truth…

Award of Awesomeness

Yep, I got another Award of Awesomeness from my school. Of course, they try to narrow my awesomeness down into one category – I think so I don’t appear too intimidating to the other kids, but who knows. Anyway, I was Bear of the Month for demonstrating the core value of Trustworthiness. I got to accept my certificate and bear tag in front of the whole school during our Friday Live. My buddy Andrew also got the same award so we got to go up front with me which was pretty cool for us.

Thank you mommy and grannie for coming to watch me. And thanks daddy for not coming to watch me since you had strep throat – I wouldn’t want to be the kid who’s dad got the whole school sick.


November baggy art

I’m on school vacation for a week (woohoo!) so all the baggies for the month have been done. Here’s a look at how they turned out.

So how long does dad have to go to my raves with me?

I mean seriously – a couple of Friday’s ago, we had a superhero-themed costume dance at school. In an attempt to throw him off, I kept telling him I didn’t want to go. See, I figured if I waited until the last minute to tell him I wanted to go (which I did), he wouldn’t be able to get a costume in time and then I could just get a ride from him and get my rave on without him. My plan hit a snag when I realized I didn’t have a costume either – doh! So we had to rush to the store to find something that would work.

Costumes in hand, I realized there was no getting out of dad coming to the dance and oh my were my concerns reinforced. It all started when my dad and I were walking and he starts schooling me on the importance of strutting and I was like “but we’re in the parking lot” which had zero impact. And it just got worse once we walked in the door – dad proceeded to impart his “wisdom” on the art of working the room…..walk counter clock-wise….point, nod, wink….make stops at 9 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 3 o’clock – uuuhhh okay, but they make digital clocks for a reason.

THEN, he wanted to show me how to own the dance floor and he almost got away from me to do it, but I shot him the look for him to stop dancing and it worked – of course, I had to shoot the look every song. And all he had to offer back each time was “all the other parents are doing it.”

Anyway, we got through it relatively unscathed. I might even take him with me next year.

Sept/Oct in….er….on the bag

Yep, my folks are still at it – drawing on my lunch bags each day. Wonder how long they will keep it up? I hope until I get out of high school 🙂
