How To “Boo” People


In our neighborhood we have a tradition of “booing” people. Booing people is like leaving people little gift but they are anonymous. Here are some rules that would be good to follow…

  1. If you can, try not to be seen.  You can have fun and try not to be seen while doing everyday activities like walking your pet, or walking to a store.
  2. You should  leave some treats like candy, pencils, erasers, etc.
  3. Try to leave a note saying something but be anonymous. It’s fun to try to guess who left the treats!
  4.  You can make up a poem instead of a note if you would like.
  5. Have fun doing it!

I hope you have fun starting the “Booing” tradition!!

Halloween Tissue Paper Pumpkin Cards

It’s Halloween time!!! Are you a total Halloween fan? I like to decorate our home with some cute little crafts I’d like to share. You can make curly leafs out of paper and hang them on a tree out doors or on a mini tree like my family does, or you could tape crepe paper to paper spiders and hang them to doorways . You could also make some super cool Halloween tissue paper cards (in picture). I hope you  have a good Halloween!!

Where to get Rainbow Loom supplies

rainbow loom

I don’t know about you, but I  run out of Rainbow Loom bands super fast. Here are some store comparisons for the best prices…


I wouldn’t suggest  getting  them at Michael’s craft store because they are about 3.00 for a pack of 300 rubber bands. Instead, go to A.C. Moore they have packs of 300 for $1.99. I think they also have a better selection.


The rubber band containers are a little bit more money, so I use bead containers.


Michael’s, Walmart, Amazon are good places to buy the Rainbow Loom kit. Also Toys R Us has them too but they are called Cra-Z Loom but you can do the same stuff.Rainbow Loom and Cra-Z Loom are a little different in design.

Decide where you want to get supplies. Sometimes you want to make it easy. Other times you want to save your money.

I got to be a Star Wars battle droid at Skywalker Ranch

Mom and I were invited to Skywalker Ranch for a Star Wars 3D press preview. We saw costumes from the movie, props, and a soundboard that’s a whole room long. We got to sit in front of the soundboard and do a voiceover from The Phantom Menace. I even got to sit in George Lucas’ chair!

My dog Oliver

Oliver Mask

My family and I own a 85 pound yellow Labrador. His name is Oliver. He is about 6 years old. He really likes it when Mom puts a cardboard box in the recycling. He goes and takes it and shreds it!  Oliver is wearing my brothers superhero mask. Silly Ollie!!


Hello world!

Hello world! I went to Digital Family Summit where I started my blog in a WordPress workshop. I decided to start a blog because I wanted others to  know what I think about different topics. My mom blogs and I know a couple of her friends and read their blogs so I thought it would be a fun experience. I also like to write and need to improve my typing. I think typing and updating my blog would be an educational experience.
