The Bridal Shower

 I had a great spring break but the best part so far was on April 7 2018 when I was invited to a Bridal Shower…

The Bridal Shower was hosted at a restaurant called Hudson Social.The groom’s mom made soap and cake pops for all the guests. The soap smelled of lavender and lemon.On the soap it said ”From Stephane’s shower to yours”.

The cake pops had red velvet and cream cheese inside. 

We played a game.There was a piece of paper with sentences, and you had to figure out who said it the groom or the bride. The questions included ”I am a better driver.” and ”I am love music more” I did not understand the game but I knew the groom and bride really well, so I got 4th place. The prizes were shampain instead I got bubbles.

The most fun game was we had to make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. I was paired with my mom,my sister Amie, and a young woman.My mom did not help.My sister was the model and the future bride was the judge.

We got third place.

Amie and I took many pictures with the future bride

Hope you had a fun day like I did.

My April fool’s easter

I was eating some toast…

”Mama my braces broke” I said. My mom rushed over, asking what had happened.” I was just eating some toast.”I said.                      ”Are you okay” My mom said.                                                                                                                                                                                          ”April fools” I said.                                                                                                                                                                                                            ” Caterina, it is Easter not April fools.”My sister said                                                                                                                                                  ”No it is both” I said…

At 10:00 my family watched an old movie about Jesus.(Jesus Christ Superstar)

After we finished the movie we had an Italian meal.(Pasta with Pesto)

Then we went outside and had an Easter Egg hunt. In the eggs, there were no chocolate instead there were random letters. My mom did not want food in the eggs because if we could not find them we would attract rodents. If we found an egg with a vowel, we would get a piece of chocolate. With all the letters we could spell words. With the words we could get a chocolate bunny. I had to make a word with nine letters or more because I am nine. I made the words Nutrition and Intersecting. I got two chocolate bunnies but I gave a bunny too my sister because she did not make an eight letter-word. Dylan found a six-letter word(father)

We had a family diner, then we read a story all together

 

Chinese New Year

The story of the Chinese New Year animals

A long time ago there was a race for the animals.12 brave animals were challenged to cross a river.The race was for the animals to have a year called after themselves.Every animal wanted this prize but only 12 got to go the animals were the Cat, Ox,  Tiger,  Rabbit,  Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and the Pig.At that time the cat and the rat were friends.The cat would train for the event every day.Day after day he would grow out of his fear a bit.When the day came he was ready.He asked the cat if the mouse could wake him up before the race.The rat said yes but his mind was elsewhere.The rat wanted to be in the race although he was not a good swimmer he still wanted to be an honorable animal.It was the morning and the cat was still asleep, and the race was about to start so the rat went to the competition…

1,2,3 go SPLASH the all the animals dived in,the rat just stood there he knew he made a mistake he saw the ox, he was so fast and so strong he was ahead of everyone.That gave the rat an idea. 1,2,3 he took the biggest jump of his life and he landed on the ox.

The bull was swimming to shore when the rat jumped right in front of him.He was the first one to cross followed by the bull.

Just then the cat woke up and figured out he has missed the composition.He went to the river and found out his own friend betrayed him. After that day the cat and the rat were enemies.结束-Means The End in Chinese

The animals order that they finished – Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and lastly the Pig.
