Where The Heart Is

Bobby's with us. Mamop's in Canada and Grandpa escaped that lonely old island to come hang with us for a few days, eat some pancakes, visit some shops and watch some olympic hockey. And of course to read while listening to the deedle deedle dee of jazz. Here he is all cozy in my PowerRangers blanket, reading one of my Dad's stories.

We watched Raiders of the Lost Ark together, me for the first time. There were a few, but only a few parts that were scary for me, like the parts with skulls and the parts where skulls melted, but mostly it was a completely awesome movie and yet confusing to me as in how is Han Solo also Indiana Jones. I am asking Grandpa to stay longer and I think he will. And if I need to miss another day of school to be with him, then that's what I gotta do.

The Birthday Pics

Thanks to our pal Heidi, Humphrey's mom, we got some photos to show you what a great time we all had at my birthday party.

We rocked out! Jamming on the piano in the ballroom and also we brought the iPod with my Groovin Gus Playlist with all my special favorite hits for dancing.

And the best part was the Transformer pinata stuffed full of delicious candy treats.

Everyone had a turn, even the littlest kids who barely made any dents at all. Humphrey here got a few good whacks.

But no one was skilled with the bat work like Stu Baby. He got a tiny hole going and then he would wait patiently and systematically until it came around again to be sure to make the hole bigger. Such impressive pinata strategy!

He set it up perfectly for me to come in with my big baseball swings and break that sucker wide open! What a feeling!

The mad and joyous dash for falling candy.

And the every-man-for-himself grabbing. I still have candy left in my Transformer goodie bag. Best birthday party I've had so far. Thanks to my parents and to the ballroom and to all my friends for coming and bringing me gifts. I really felt your love!

Those Pearly Whites

Guess where I went for the very first time:

The Dentist. I was very excited. Stuart goes to this dentist and he told me of all the fun stuff there. Check out this chair!

And check out these cool glasses they make you wear to protect your eyes from spit and other tooth stuff. I seem to have a very tight grip on my chair here on account of I didn't really know what to expect.

But it was all good and I was a champ and got all the bugs scraped off my back teeth that I guess I don't brush as well as I do the rest of my choppers. I tried to give my mom a thumb's up throughout the whole cleaning so she knew I was cool as a moose. Afterward I got two tokens to use in the toy vending machine there and the first time all I got was a stupid fake mustache that I didn't want and with my second token do you know what I got? A stupid fake mustache that I didn't want! I am anxious to get back to the dentist to try my luck again.
