This will be the last post to this blog

Anthony will be moving to New Zealand next week.    Since I am the only one who updates this blog, Anthony really didn’t write all this stuff himself, and since he is going to be several thousand miles away, it will be impossible to continue telling you about his exploits.

Thank you for following

I will miss keeping this blog up.. it was great fun…

Bye

My latest obsession

I have discovered Star Wars.   Did you all about this stuff?   How come no told me any sooner.

My Grandma and Papa are thrilled about it also…  We have been watching “Star Wars: The Clone War” animated series a couple of times a day for the last few weeks.

I have the Star Wars minifigures hidden in every room in our house; they’re everywhere…  Of course, sometimes Papa is not too thrill about that.  Occasionally they get accidentally dropped on the rug and are very difficult to see at night.. especially when you’re walking in your bare feet.   One day, I’ll have to work on that.

I have some Lego Star Wars kits too.  Papa helps me build them.   As Papa puts them together I’m busy either taking them back apart, using the pieces for my own masterpiece, or hiding critical parts.  It can get very exciting when Papa realizes that a critical piece is missing when the model is half way complete.   I always know where the missing pieces are; Papa just hasn’t figured that out yet.

What’s very cool right now (and yes, I talk that way know, not sure who I picked up the work “cool” from) is that McDonald’s is giving away Star Wars stuff in their Happy Meals.   Here’s a picture of me with my lightsaber…  please forgive how Papa looks.. it’s the only picture we had.

Well, that’s it for tonight.

Thanks a lot for stopping by and please stop by again.

Goodbye; the end of this blog

Yup, this blog is going away.

It seems my Mom is moving up north, way far from Texas, and I, of course, am going with her.

One of my big blogging secrets is that my Papa occasionally helps me out with this blog.   Not being around him will make it difficult if not impossible to continue this blog.

I will miss sharing how I grow up with you all.   Who knows, maybe someday I’ll try this again.  But for now, it must come to an end.

Thank you so much for reading and following this blog.  And thank you especially for all of the nice comments and notes over the last 2  1/2 years.

Yup, I’ve been writing and you all have been reading this blog since November 2008, for more than two and a half years.  And yes, I was only a year old when this old started.   At 3  1/2 years old it comes to an end.

So just like that, this blog is no more

Thanks again for stopping by, it’s been fun

Check out my garden

After Papa arranged for a play area in our backyard, Grandma let me plant some flowers.   She bought me my own gloves, plastic shovel and hoe, and a watering pail.    She even let me help pick out the flowers and a couple of play birds for decorations.

I was very good at the actual planting part.  But I was great a spreading the dirt around.  Do know how far dirt will fly when that little plastic shovel snaps out of the dirt?  You’re right, a very long way.. LOL

Well, that’s all for today

It’s been a long day

When you’re almost 4 years old,  life can be pretty hectic.   I need to get an hour before anyone else in the family so I can wander around the house and get into stuff that I know Grandma would never let me touch if she was awake.

Then of course, I need to give Grandma a hard time about what I want for breakfast.  This can sometimes go on for 30-40 minutes.  I usually win.

Today, after doing some shopping, I got to visit Annabelle, my new cousin.  She likes me.

I get to hug and sit on her blanket with her.  She was even trying to talk to me today.  That’s why her tongue is sticking out.

We did a few other things… and by 4 PM I had had and crashed in my chair.

Life is tough… (smile)

One of the ways Grandma keeps me quiet

I’m 3 years old so I’m not always the quietest child in the restaurant, in the back seat of the car, at the dinner table, or at bed time.  I sometimes tend to get just a little bit wild and maybe even a little out of control.

But don’t worry because Grandma has found a way to always make me quiet as a mouse.   She’s just gives me my iPad.   Of course, Grandpa thought it was his iPad but we all know better.  Someday, we’ll have to tell him.

Getting back to my original story…  Grandma just has to turn it on and hand it to me and instant silence.

The iPad is extremely cool.  It has games, puzzles, books, TV shows, movies, videos and photos of me and my family, and much much more.  What’s there not to like.  You would be amazed at how long it can keep me busy.

If we are at a restaurant for example, and I start to get just a little antsy, out comes the iPad and suddenly I’m calm and quiet.

What really fascinates Papa is how well I use it.  I can turn it on, adjust the volume, pick the app or video I want to watch..  I can even size things… flick my fingers out and it gets bigger, flick my fingers in and it gets smaller.  And turning pages is a breeze; you just swipe the page in the direction you want to go.

The only problem I have is I can get Grandpa’s computer screen to change pages when I swipe it, no matter how hard I pound on the monitor.

And remember when I said Papa still thinks the iPad is his?   Last time I check I had a couple of seasons of  “Dinosaur Train“, “Little Einsteins“, “Jacks’s Big Music Show“, “Wonder Pets“, “Rugrats”, and tons of “Phineas and Ferb” (Papa likes them also), and a couple of seasons of “Scooby Doo“.  Scooby Doo is my favorite.  I could watch him all day.

I also have the three Toy Story movies (“Toy Story“, Toy Story 2“, and “Toy Story 3“) loaded on the iPad..  and don’t even get me going about all of the books, games and puzzles I have.

If Papa ever decided he wanted to use it, I don’t think there’s room for any of his stuff… (smile)..

Catch you in a few days.

Thank you for stopping by and please stop by again.

Proper use of a Lego table

I had a task to accomplish last night.  I needed to see how many of my cars and trucks I could put on top of the Lego® table and how many stuffed animals would fit in Papa’s chair.

It took a while but I think I did a pretty good job.

Here’s a picture of my Lego table once I completed

And here’s a picture of Papa’s chair..  he’s going to have fun trying to sit in his chair tonight.

Well, just a short post this afternoon

Thanks for stopping by
