Daddy’s Birthday

Daddy’s Birthday

Today is daddy’s birthday; while he was out running we decorated the dining room so that he would like his party.  We also cleaned and cleaned and cleaned to make him happy. We surprised him at the door and he liked it.   We all had a great time. Daddy opened presents. He liked them and we were happy he liked them.

For breakfast, we had a treat of Pop Tarts. We hardly ever get Pop Tarts for breakfast because Mama never ever lets us eat that much sugar in the mornings. They were deeeeelicious and the best party food ever!

Here are Caroline’s and Lizzie’s presents.  (I can’t find mine.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare, the day before we went to first gear and bought a shirt and gift certificate.   We went to hobby town and bought a weather station kit from me, a trash robot making kit from Caroline and a rock art kit from Lizzie.

Mom got a babysitter to watch Josie and Lizzie.  They watched Dora, and Josie was happy for a while, but after an hour, the babysitter said Josie would not stop crying so we went home to get her.   Mom dropped me off and picked Josie up. Mom and Caroline went to Baskin Robbins to get a super expensive cake.   After dinner, we wrapped presents. Even Lizzie helped but she kinda didn’t do it right.

My Butterfly

Today while my mom and dad were snoozing, I went outside and I caught a small butterfly. It was about the size of a nickel. Its wings were black and gold and it was really pretty. The bad part was it had a little tear on its wing, but I have seen many butterflies with torn wings and they can still fly. I was still worried about him, and I was thinking about making a house for him.

When I brought him inside he would not come off my finger. I showed Daddy, but Mama barely breathed when I showed them the butterfly because she was saying “get it out of the house. Get it out of the house!”  So I opened the door and went outside. While I was closing the door, Daddy yelled (as usual) “Close the door!  Don’t forget to close the door!”  And the wind almost blew it away, but I closed my hand over him, and then I took my hand off, and the wind blew him away.  I was sad that my butterfly went away.  I tried to catch another one, but I couldn’t. So I just gave up.

The BFG

The BFG
By: Roald Dahl

Characters:

The BFG: [otherwise known as the big friendly giant] is about 30 feet tall. And as you might guess, he is very kind, generous and kind of smart.

The Queen: ruler of England helped catch the other mean giants

The Other Ugly Giants: the blood bottler and the others are mean nasty giants who eat people and are about 50 feet tall.

Sophie: an orphan girl who is very lonely. She wears thick glasses. And she is very smart and kind

Setting:  England and giant country

Plot:  Sophie was taken away from her bed by the big friendly giant. Scared out of her wits, she was quiet as a mouse. The big giant carried her to his cave.  She thought he was going to eat her raw or boiled or fried.  Soon, the BFG turned on the lights and Sophie was amazed because there were hundreds and thousands of bottles in every nook and cranny in the BFG’s cave.  When the BFG heard her say ‘aren’t you going to eat me? he laughed, and when he laughed, the whole place shook.

Even though the BFG was nice, the other giants were terrible and ate children.  The first time Sophie saw one of these up close, she was very scared.  The bloodbottler, one of the evil giants, showed up at the BFG’s cave.  This one was half-naked, and the only thing he had on was a pair of dirty, pink shorts. The BFG stood up to him while Sophie was still on the table.  There was nothing on the table, and she wondered where she would hide.  Then, Sophie saw the snozzcumber (kind of like a cucumber except 50 times bigger, about the size of a man), dug out huge seeds and made a hole for herself to hide in. The bloodbottler ate a big bite of the snozzcumber, and he barely missed eating Sophie.

Sophie asked the BFG what was in the bottles.  “Dreams,” said the BFG.  The BFG was in charge of giving children good dreams.  He would travel the whole world blowing dreams into the children’s bedrooms.  Sophie got to go with him to where he caught his dreams.  He accidentally caught a dream that was worse than a nightmare.  The BFG bottled it up, so no one could get to it.

Sophie wanted to stop the evil giants from eating all the world’s children.  The BFG found out where they were going, and Sophie decided to stop them.  She told the BFG to go to England and find the Queen’s bedroom.  Sophie wanted the BFG to blow a dream about giants eating little children into the Queen’s bedroom.  The plan worked, and the Queen decided to stop the evil giants.

The Queen ordered men to dig a huge pit, and then while the giants were sleeping, the Queen’s men tied them up and lifted them with helicopters and dropped them into the pit.  The evil giants got snozzcumbers to the end of their lives.

Sophie and the BFG lived happily ever after in England.
