Father Daughter Dance 2012

Last night was my first Father Daughter Dance, afterwards we went out to dinner with some friends who were also at the dance.  I got my first corsage from Leroy for the dinner.  It was fun to get all dressed up, I felt like a princess, which Nana said "Well duh, you are a princess!) 
First corsage

We are ready to head to the dance, fun!

Soccer Pictures

This was my first year of soccer - I must say I was pretty darn good!  It was fun!  Now I am playing softball - made the first home run of the season for my team.  I play of Wallace Plumbing.

Polar Express

The Polar Express was actually my second train ride, my first ride was in a snow storm with my Papa in December of 2008.  It was from Vancouver, Washington to Wishram, Washington.  

Papa had come to take care of me while my mommy was recovering from surgery.  While he was staying with us there was a huge snow storm, the gorge freeways to The Dalles were closed so he had to stay 8 whole days instead of the 2 he had planned on. 

We had fun - a couple of those days there was no school because of the storm so Papa and I got to spend the day together and we made my first Gingerbread House (see below).

Papa wanted to get home - he missed my Nana and decided to ride the train home- even the train was too full the first day he tried to leave so he had to wait, by the time the train had a couple of seats I was out of school for the Christmas holiday and we both took off on a fun adventure to The Dalles on the train, it was a couple of days before Christmas.  The two hour trip turned into a 4 hour trip and we waited for hours to board the train.  Once we got on the train the conductor told everyone there was a special treat for everyone, Papa and I went to the lounge to find our treat - it was a huge Subway sandwich for each person on the train - boy was I hungry after the long wait - it tasted really good!

This time the train ride was just for fun - my cousin Abigail (Abby) and I rode it with Nana and Papa.  We got to sing Christmas Carols, drink hot cocoa, eat Gingersnap cookies (not as good as my Nana's though), and we got to see Santa and sit on his lap and tell him what we wanted for Christmas.  Here are some pictures...

We are singing our Christmas Carols - I love the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". My favorite part is about the "Five Golden Rings!"

First Missing Tooth - September 29, 2009!

I lot my first tooth! How exciting - It feels so funny, my tongue keeps playing with the spot where my tooth use to be.  

The Tooth Fairy brought me $1.00 - my Nana said that was inflation (whatever that means!).  She said she use to get a quarter - boy that wouldn't buy anything now days!

First Day of First Grade

Today was my first day of First Grade.  We are in the process of moving back to The Dalles and in the meantime I get to stay with Nana and Papa and start school until we get moved in our new house.  It is cool!  I love being back in The Dalles - it is great to go places and see people you know.  I went to The Dalles Wahtonka High School Burger and Ball Bash on Friday night with Papa and Nana and there was lots of people who knew me - it was so much fun!  We even won the game!

Here are some pictures of me on my way to school - my Nana ALWAYS takes pictures of us on the first day of school.  My Mommy and Aunt Carrie use to hate it but it is fun for them to see all the pictures now that they are adults.

the famous picture taken in front of the front door - fun to see how tall we get from year to year!
carrying my HEAVY backpack - all my school supplies. I hope it isn't this heavy coming back home with homework!

I got to ride the school bus today after school to Nana's work - that is so much fun!
