...on this lovely, lovely Hanukkah!

On Sunday I went to Ella's house for Hanukkah. It involved lighting candles and singing. But it wasn't for a birthday. Ella's mommy shared the story of Hanukkah as we lit the Hanukia (that's the Menorah, or the fancy candle holder). We ate yummy latkes. My friends Abe and Alma also were at the party. Ella happily shared some of her dreidles with me and I took home a blue one. Mommy and Daddy made chocolate covered apricots and wrapped them in shiny foil for gelt.

O Christmas Tree

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yoshi the Logger

How lovely are thy branches! Especially when they are cut off and made into a little Yoshi-sized wreath! Here I am with Daddy holding the tree that we cut down. Daddy tied the tree onto the car with string, but something happened when we got on the freeway. The tree flew off. Mommy carefully drove backwards on the side of the road and Daddy rescued the tree. I told Daddy that next time I will hold the string so the tree won't fall off again.

Every year Mommy makes wreaths using extra branches from the tree. She made a big one for our front door. Daddy made a small wreath that hangs on the door to my room. Yay! It smells good.

Hamburger

On a long, long, very long drive back from visiting Uncle Eric and Auntie Wendy yesterday...

Daddy: Wake up Yoshi, it's time to get lunch.

Me (rubbing my eyes): huh??

Mommy: Do you want tacos or hamburger for lunch?

Me: Hamburger!

Daddy: Okay! Burgers it is.

Me: Yay!! I want the hamburger with the black thing in it.

Mommy: You mean the meat?

Me: Yeah, the meat. And two breads--one on top and one on the bottom.

Mommy: You mean the buns?

Me: Yeah, the bread buns. And Yellow cheese.

Daddy: Okay, a cheeseburger.

Me: And with pointy sides on the cheese.

Mommy: We call the pointy sides corners.

Me: I call them pointy sides!

Yoshi-size fruit



Daddy went to Berkeley Bowl, also known as the store that sells pink and brown pretzels. Today he brought home little Yoshi-sized fruit. Tiny bananas, itty-bitty apples, and a small bunch of dark purple grapes. Mommy put the fruit in a small bowl and it sits next to the big bowl of grown-up size fruit.





My favorite are the tiny bananas! So yummy!!

Ohr-jange



I can't say "orange." It always comes out sounding like "ohr-jange." Yesterday Daddy and I gathered things from around the house that are orange. I put them on this table.

Zubbles... The World's First Colored Bubbles!

Lookey here! Colored bubbles! Maybe I can get these for the summer time.

I know, I know. I'll update soon.



Mommy has been very busy with the computer these days, so I haven't been able to update my website. Here are just a couple recent photos. Ella and I are carpool buddies once a week. I will try to get my cameraman and director (i.e. Daddy) to get another podcast ready.

No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Monkey Jammies
Mommy made me a nice pair of jammies. It's cozy flannel with monkeys and circles on it. I like to put my tiny Snoopy in my pocket. There are three pink buttons. It is too big for me, but I like having the floppy arms and the baggy pants.

Tumbling like a tumble weed

Mommy and Daddy think I might be shy at my first day of gymnastics, but I am so excited to see so many cool things that I have no time to feel shy. WOW!! It's like a playground that's inside! The first thing I do is run over to climb a ladder up to the uneven bars. Then I run to the other side of the gym and swung from the trapeze bar. I swing there a lot. Then I climb another ladder, this time backwards, and walk across a balance beam, and then slide down backwards on the slide at the other end. I jump on a trampoline and bump heads with another kid. Bonk! No worries. I climb off and swing from these two rings that hand down from a rope. Whee!!! Then I climb up on a big, foamy, half circle thingy and try to balance. I get some help from Daddy. Then I crawl through a tunnel. More balance beam. I do footie wall (Mommy calls it a handstand). I also hang upside down on a bar by myself. My gymnastics teacher sings songs, dances, and does all sorts of fun things with the kids. Yay! The time went by very fast. Next thing I knew it was time to leave. I wanted to swing on the giant tire swing, but I was too late. It will have to wait until next week when I go back. I will try to remind Mommy to bring the camera.

Children's Fairyland -- take 2

Yesterday was my second time at Children's Fairyland. The first time I went I was too scared to go on many of the rides. I didn't even go down the spiral slide because it was in the dark. But yesterday my cousin Ai-chan was with me and we played everywhere together. She helped me be brave. We went on the slides, the merry-go-rounds (3 times!), the ferris wheel. We walked through the Alice in Wonderland adventure. We said hi to all the animals. We played in the sand. Ai-chan even fed goats with these little pellet things that look like big rabbit food. It was great! I can't wait to go back with her again.

Put it all together

You are now looking at my new and improved website. My blog, videos, podcast, and pictures can all be found now at littleyo.com. I hope you like it!

Changes

It is a new school year for me and Daddy. With that comes a new website, a new look for my blog, and new podcasts. I told Mommy and Daddy I want to streamline and simplify my internet life. I still have some work to do on my website and blog. It should be done soon, unless I start getting homework from school. That would really bite into my free time.

iPod ads







I have this week off between summer school and my regular preschool. I decided to make some ads to go with my podcasts. But shhh, don't tell Mommy I used her computer. She really doesn't like when I use it. She should learn how to share better.

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

Fixed

The podcast is fixed for now.

Technical difficulties

I'm having some problems with my Podcast page. I'll see if Daddy can use his connections to fix this.

My podcast!

Daddy taught me everything he knows about podcasting. For those of you who don't know what a podcast is, it's like a radio or tv show that is downloaded from the internet. You can see my videos by clicking here. You can download iTunes free and the program will download the videos, or you can simply watch the videos online by clicking on the pictures of the videos. Enjoy!

Mommy and Daddy's vacation without me

Mommy and Daddy told me to share these photos from their trip. I told them to ask nicely so they said, "Pretty please?! Share these photos with your adoring readers." Sure thing!

Mes vacances sans mes parents


I was on holiday last week. Bachan and Jichan took care of me while Mommy and Daddy went on a trip far away to Iceland and France. They said that if I'm potty trained the next time they go, they will take me. I'm working on it!

Here are some pictures that Auntie Wendy took of me when I visited her and Uncle Eric. We went to the Aquarium and I saw lots of fish. I also went on a super big ferris wheel at a fancy outdoor mall. I am very brave.

Mommy and Daddy called me every day while they were away. I did not talk to them very much though. They did most of the talking. I was a little upset that they did not take me on their vacation. Still, I had a good time even though they were not around. I even got to have a sleepover at my cousins' house. I love playing with Kelly, Katie and Madison because they do everything I tell them to, unlike when I'm at home and Mommy and Daddy always seem to want to do something other than what I want. Funny how that works.

"I didn't sell out, I bought in."

You may have noticed that up near the top of my blog there are now small advertisements. Everytime someone clicks on one of these ads from my blog, I get a little bit of money from the advertiser people. Mommy and Daddy say this is how I'm going to earn my college tuition. So, if any of these ads strike your fancy -- clicky clicky, support Yoshimi!

Crafty calls

Don't tell anyone, but Mommy has an excellent stash of crafty supplies. Why, just the other day she tells me she can make a phone out of two paper cups and some yarn. I tell her, "I'd like to see you try!" Okay, the words don't come out quite like that, it is more like, "Yay! Cups!" Mommy takes a sharp, pointy thing and pokes a hole in the bottom of each cup. Then she takes some yarn (she's got oodles upon oodles of yarn), pulls it through each cup, then ties the ends with knots. She gives me one cup and told me to hold it. She walks all the way down the hall with the other cup. She tells me to hold my cup over my ear. She talks into her cup. "Hello!" she says. I hear her voice in my cup! I also hear her voice out of the cup too since she's only just down the hall. But still, this is neat! Then she holds her cup over her ear while I say, "Hellooo!!" in my cup. She hears me.

I tell her I want to talk to Uncle Eric but she says that the yarn isn't long enough. I'm not sure I believe her. I mean, have you seen how much yarn my mommy has? It's a lot.

Here I am chillin' at Auntie Misa and Uncle Ed's vacation house. They set up a little pool for me.

Shout out

Just wanted to give a shout out to my Daddy!

I love Daddy. His work is far away so he spends a lot of time in his red car and I miss him. I always plan to wake up early before he leaves and sneak into his car so I can ride with him to work, but I never wake up in time. I need an alarm clock.

Camping at Mt. Tam


Two weekends ago, Uncle Eric and Auntie Wendy drove a long time from their house to ours. We drove across a bridge and then up a moutain called Mt. Tamalpais where we camped. Mommy forgot the map though so we didn't know exactly where the campgrounds were. We drove to the top, turned around, found a map, and then found the campground. The sites are "first come, first served." This means you need to get there first thing or else they won't help you! Luckily we found a nice place to camp.

I helped Auntie Wendy and Uncle Eric set up the tent. Auntie Wendy has camped before, but this was Uncle Eric's very first time camping. He was lucky that I have all this camping experience under my belt. Uncle Eric and Auntie Wendy's tent was a little too small for them to get very comfy, so I'm not sure how well they slept that night.

After we set up camp, we set out on a hike. Daddy wore the backpack to carry me, but I walked a lot in the beginning. Then I got tired so Daddy carried me while I took a nap. When I woke up, we were halfway done with the hike. We turned around, found a shady bridge to eat our sandwiches that Mommy made, and then hiked more. I hiked a lot! There was a 10 foot ladder that I climbed by myself. I held Daddy's hand so he wouldn't fall.

We played leapfrog with a group of other hikers. This is where we hike ahead of them, then later on they pass us and get in front of us, and then it's our turn. And so on and so forth. They said something to me about being a "trooper" for hiking so much by myself. I'm not sure what that means but I think it was a good thing.

For dinner, we ate chili hot dogs! Yummy. Then Mommy made Jiffy Pop over the campfire and we all ate popcorn. Next, s'mores!

Oh, I forgot that we went down to Stinson Beach and got some yummy ice cream after our hike. I had a scoop of mocha fudge ice cream and a scoop of berry sorbet. Good stuff! Daddy bought some grownup drinks for later that night.

I sure had a good time camping with Uncle Eric and Auntie Wendy. I hope we can go again soon!

Updated 6/27


Come check out my updated photos and videos on my other website! Note: there are several albums and the videos are large files so they may take a while to load.

ETA: Big thanks to Auntie Wendy for taking the camping pictures!

We like the cars, the cars that go boom



Today Daddy, Mommy and I went to the movie theater to see a movie. This is my second time being at the theaters. We watched Cars, made by Pixar. Pixar is three blocks from my house. Mommy and I walk by it a lot. I even waved to the man who made the Nemo movie once. Anyway, Cars was a fun movie (it's about, guess what? Cars!), but I like Finding Nemo better. Maybe I would have liked it more if I knew how to drive. Of course, I don't really know how to swim yet so I'm not much like Nemo the fish either. I sat through the entire movie, ate a bag of popcorn and had some candy that I hear some dude named E.T. likes. Good stuff!

Nap game


I play a game with Mommy. I pretend that I am Mommy. I tell Mommy to lie down on the sofa. I put a blanket on her. I gently pat her and tell her it's time to go to sleep. I sing a song. Sometimes I sing Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Then I tell her I have to go do some work. Or sometimes I tell her that I'm going to bed too. I run up to MommyDaddyBed and climb inside. This is a picture of me lying there, pretending I will go to sleep. Bandit Snoopy cuddles next to me. He stays on MommyDaddyBed.

Tra la la la


I went to Pennsylvania for a wedding this past weekend with Mommy and Daddy. We went on two airplanes to get there. One plane was big. One plane was small. The small ones only had 9 rows of seats. There were two spinny things on the wings that went really fast. I watched the wheels move up and down. Neat stuff.

My cousins were in Pennsylvania too. They are such fun. We did flips on the hotel beds. We ran around the grass at the wedding. We danced at the reception. We ate lots of cookies and drank lots of soda and stayed up until 2am. My cousins sure know how to party! And now I do too.

Summer school

Today was my first day of summer school. My friends Ella and Abe were there too. I go to a different school with different teachers and different classmates than my other school. This is only for the summer. This is why it's called Summer School. Daddy has a new job too, working for a place that's named after a kind of fruit that begins with the first letter of the alphabet. It's a summer job though. So he only works during the summer. When summer is over, it's back to my other school for me. It's also back to school for Daddy. Mommy continues to work at her same work, Akemi Designs. Sometimes I pretend that I work for Akemi Designs too. I cut up all of Mommy's paper. I sometimes also call my work Lennon Designs.

At first I felt shy in this new place. I felt comfortable after a little bit. When Ella came, she also was very shy and clung to her daddy. I asked her, "Ella are you shy?" Ella said, "Yes I am!" and then she didnt' say anything else. Later, after our morning snack of juicy oranges, apples, and crunchy crackers, we played in this big table-box thing that had dried beans, rice, and pasta. It was sort of like a sandbox without the sand. Ella looked happier. I asked her, "Ella, are you talking now?" She said yes and so she and I played.

Summer school is really fun. There are lots of friendly kids in my class. Today we walked to the park. Summer school hours are not as long as my regular school, so Mommy picks me up before nap time. I don't really like napping much these days though. I'd much rather play in Mommy's office so I can see her make her no-no face. Works every time.

Oh, I have this really neat lunch box. It's in the shape of a robot! The food goes in the tummy. His head also opens up to hold extra goodies. Today Mommy made a card with a "Y" on the front and a drawing of Daddy, Mommy, and me on the inside with a heart in the corner. Yay! Another boy in my class has a robot lunch box too. He accidentally took my robot. He thought it was his. I pointed out his mistake by showing him my name on the back. He gave it back to me and he found his own robot lunch box. Lunch sure is yummy when it's eaten from a robot's tummy!

Last day


Today was my last day at preschool with Fong, Marie, my other teachers, and my friends. There was a party, but a lot of the other mommies and daddies seemed a little sad. I had a good time. I ate watermelon, pink and green cookies, drank lemonade and played with my friends.

My teachers made a nice photo album with lots of pictures of taken at school during my 9 months there. Fong wrote a lot of journal entries about my days there too. Mommy has read some of them to me already.

The parents gave Fong and Marie gift certificates to buy a tree for their homes. Once they pick the trees out, we will come over and help plant them. They will be able to see them grow. I drew on a card for my teachers. One of my other teachers Vivian gave me a green bear. It's really cute. Vivian is moving far away. When will I see her again?

I noticed my cubby was all cleaned out. The picture of me was taken down. Someone put it in my photo album. Will I ever use my cubby again?

Soon I will start summer school. Daddy tells me it's not at the school I've been going to. It's at a new school. I hope everyone there is nice. I'm nervous. Luckily two of my friends will be there too so we can play together.

When summer school is over, I will go back to my other school, the one where Fong and Marie teach. Marie isn't going to be my teacher though. Fong might, but she doesn't know for sure. I hope so. I really like her. I will get to be a student in the bigger kids' classroom. Neato!

Here are some pics:

Camping at Pinnacles


On Wednesday, Mommy, Daddy and I drove to a place called Pinnacles National Monument. We camped. This was my second time camping, but I honestly don't remember the first time. It all seemed new to me. We got to the camping place when it was already dark. Daddy built a fire, but it's not like building a building. He took a big knife thing and chopped some wood logs and made a pile. He took a lighter and made fire. Neat stuff. But it's important to stay away from the fire. Even though the flames are pretty, it is NOT to be touched. HOT!! Dinner was cooked on the fire. We had baked beans and hot dogs. For dessert we had 'smores. I just like to eat the marshmallows raw. Good stuff. A raccoon, which is kind of like a big cat with a stripe on its face wanted to eat our food. Daddy told it to go away.

Mommy put up the tent. I helped out by making sure she did everything right. The tent did not fall over so that must mean she did it right. I would have given her sticker for her good work, but I forgot my stickers at home.

We slept in the tent. I slept in between Mommy and Daddy. They slept in sleeping bags. I brought my Elmo bed that you blow up with air and slept on that. Mommy slept on my left side and Daddy slept on my right. But then I moved onto my tummy and then Mommy was on my right side and Daddy was on my left. How did that happen?

I counted the stars before I feel asleep. There were at least 5... million scabillion!

When it was morning, I turned to Mommy and said, "Mommy wake up! It's a beautiful day!" She looked up at the blue sky and said, "You're right! It IS a beautiful day!" We giggled. Daddy got up and made another fire. I got dressed and helped him while Mommy put the sleeping bags away. I noticed that there were footprints on our car. That raccoon walked on our car. Hey!


We had a yummy breakfast--bagels, cheese, sausage. I drank hot cocoa. Mommy and Daddy had coffee, although Mommy said something about how it was sludgy. I saw really big birds (but not the yellow Big Bird) fly overhead. Mommy said they were California Condors. Neat!

We heard rustling noises in the bushes. "Look! It's a deer!" Mommy and I investigated. We kept our distance, but we watched a pretty deer looking for breakfast. The deer saw me and watched me for a while. I didn't do much though except look back.

After breakfast, Mommy made sandwiches for our lunch and we broke down camp. That means we cleaned up and put everything away. Leave only footprints. Take only photos and memories!

Soon we went on our hike. It was hilly. It was hot. And it was pretty! Luckily there were lots of trees that shaded us. We passed by bat caves. We also walked through a rocky tunnel. "Tunnel!"

We ate lunch at a thing called a Reservoir, which looks like a big lake. There were tons of dragonflies flying around. Big red ones and small blue ones. We hiked some more. Then we hiked back. We stopped along the way to look at the pretty views and climb on some rocks.


We left the park and then drove to get ice cream! Yummy. I had a banana split with a scoop of cherry ice cream and a scoop of mocha almond fudge. Hot fudge syrup was poured over it, then whipped cream, then topped off with a bright red cherry. Delicious!

I had a good time camping. I told Mommy that next time I want Uncle Eric and Auntie Wendy to come with us. Mommy tells me that Uncle Eric has never been camping before. I told her that I will help him out if he comes.

Children's Fairyland


Last weekend, I went to a place called Children's Fairyland. I hear that this was the very first theme park made, and that some guy named Walt Disney based his park on this one. I like to watch a lot and really get a feel for things instead of blindly venturing into the unknown, so I didn't go on many rides. I just watched the other kids. I didn't like the spiral slide because it was dark and I couldn't see. I did go on a train. I rode in the caboose. That's the last car of the train. It was orange. We went in a tunnel. Tunnel!! I also played a lot in the sand. Oh, and animals! I saw donkeys, roosters, an alpaca, ducks, rabbits, a pony, and a sheep.

Jamba Juice!

Usually on Tuesday mornings Daddy goes on a walk with me and my classmates at school. We walk up and down the sidewalks, looking at all sorts of neat things. Sometimes Daddy, me, and one of my friends will hide behind a bush and then jump out at my other friends and yell, "Boo!" We all laugh.

This morning Mommy came with us on our walk. We went to the post office. We helped my teacher mail out letters. We put them in the big blue mailbox. We also went to Jamba Juice. We watched some people make smoothies. It's not too difficult, but you need a grown-up's help to use the blender. We all shared a big smoothie. A smoothie is a really cold, icy fruit drink. It's sort of like ice cream, but melty-er. It's not soupy like soup though. It's very yummy. Sometimes I drink too much and it hurts my head.

Sometimes Daddy makes smoothies at home. I help pour in the orange juice and frozen strawberries. I will eat some banana to make sure it tastes okay before putting it in the cup. Daddy uses the blender, but sometimes I will push the button to make it go. I love smoothies!

I still remember

I have not forgotten my trip to the doctor where the two men stabbed me with a needle. They took my blood. I wonder if I'll ever get it back. I still cry and get very sad and very angry when I think about it.

Today, Daddy had a bandage around his arm. It was the same place where I had my owie. I asked Daddy, "What happened?! You got an ouchie?" He told me that he also had blood taken out from him. "For running tests?" I asked. He said that the blood that got taken out is going to someone who doesn't have enough blood of their own. I gave him a hug and a kiss, patted his arm and said, "Oh, you'll feel better, Daddy."

Eight Eyes

Yesterday Mommy and I played dress up. Here we are wearing glasses. Notice we both have the same look on our faces. I don't know how glasses are supposed to make you see better. Mine are really dirty. And Mommy's only has frames. No inside part. Hmm...

We made another little video while playing, so stay tuned to my photo/video website for that!

Doctor visit

Today I visit with my new doctor in San Francisco. The waiting room has toys, a play kitchen, and a toy cash register that I play with while Mommy and Daddy scribble on some paper for the people working at the office. Soon the doctor's helper comes out to get us and she walks us into a room with all sorts of machines. We don't use any of them, but she has me stand against a wall that had a measuring stick to see how tall I am. "33 inches exactly!" she says. Then I stand on a scale to see how much I weigh. 25 and a half pounds. Next, we leave that room and go into another room. The helper tells us that my doctor will come in soon and then the helper lady leaves. In the room, there is what looks like a really cushy changing table with paper on it and a pillow. A lot of different black plastic and shiny metal doctor tools hang on the wall. Daddy and Mommy tells me what they are for and that the doctor will use them on me to check if I'm healthy.

Soon the doctor arrives. She's really nice, but I am shy at first. She asks Mommy and Daddy questions about me, and then she asks me herself. I tell her that my favorite breakfast food is toast and I love my pink socks even though I prefer oatmeal and my blue socks more (what she doesn't know won't hurt her though). She takes the heart listening tool from around her neck and asks, "Do you know what this is?" I say, "Sketh-a-scope!" She beams a big smile and says, "Wow! Very good!!" She has me point to where my heart is, and she listens to it go Boom Boom Boom. She listens to my lungs while I take big breaths. She listens to my back. I don't know what my back says. Then she takes one of those funny tools and looks into my ears and mouth.

She then goes into all that grown-up doctor talk with Mommy and Daddy, saying something about bloodwork. Soon we leave the doctor room and she tells me to run down the hall so she can see how I do it. I guess she doesn't know how to run. She says I'm a good runner and jumper. Yay! I get a big Winnie the Pooh sticker and a big Tigger sticker. Double Yay!

Then we go down the elevator into another room. I show off my stickers to a nice lady working at the front desk. A man comes into the waiting room and says my name. Mommy holds my hand and we all go into a little room that has a curtain for a wall and Mommy and I sit on a funny chair. Another man comes in the room. Both men are dressed in long white coats and have a picture of themselves on what looks like a credit card, but it's attached to their pockets. They seem nice. I look at this big blue rubber band that is being tied to my arm left. Kinda tight, I think to myself. Then one man tells Mommy to hold down my right arm. He holds down my left arm. Hey! What's going on? OWWIEE!! The other man takes a long, sharp, pointy needle and slides it in my arm! "EEEEEE," I wimper and watch them take a lot of blood from me. I try to stay strong and I don't let them see me cry. I'm a big girl! Soon (but not soon enough) it is over and I get a whole bunch of big stickers as a reward. I would rather have my blood back. I'm bandaged up and good to go. Mommy holds me while I wimper some more and Daddy says that I'm a very brave and I did a great job. I hurt and am confused and sad.

Once we get to the car I can't contain how upset I am. I bawl. "Waaahhhhhh!!! It hurts!!! I got a big owie!!! Waahhhh!!!!" Daddy gives me big cuddles and then puts me in my carseat. We drive back to school. I cry a bit.

Once at school, I show everyone my stickers, my bandage, and tell them all about my visit to the doctor and how I got poked with a needle and that my arm hurts so don't touch it!

In six months, I get to go back for another visit. Mommy says that I will have forgotten this whole ordeal. Unfortunately, my memory is better than Mommy realizes...

My weekend

This past weekend Mommy and Daddy went on a road trip to Las Vegas to celebrate their anniversary. Did you know there was a time when Mommy and Daddy were not married? I did not know that. I thought they have been together forever. I stayed with Bachan and Jichan at their house. Jichan put together a new toy for me on Saturday. It's a very fancy pretend kitchen! Here is a picture of it. [NOTE: those kids are not me!]

Yesterday was my cousin Siobhan's 1st birthday party. I went to the party with my cousins Kelly, Katie, and Madison. It was fun! We sang Happy Birthday and had cake. Yummy! I love playing with my cousins. I can't wait to have sleep overs at their house this summer.

Mommy and Daddy had lots of fun in Vegas. Mommy even drove with Elmo and Zoe. Here is Mommy with her monster friends.
Daddy brought back a new Grover doll for me. He's very soft, fuzzy, and blue. Not Daddy, silly, Grover!! Grover looks sort of like Cookie Monster, but without the cookies and the craziness.

I'm going back to Bachan and Jichan's house on Friday so I will bring some of my kitchen toys from my house to use there. Yay!

The Easter Beagle

On Friday at school my friends and I colored eggs. Why? I have no idea, but it was fun. The eggs were so pretty. I also made a basket out of a tofu container. I used orange and yellow fuzzy pipe cleaners for a handle. Colored tape and stickers decorated the outside. I put all my eggs in one basket. When I got home, I accidentally pushed the basket off the table and onto the floor. All the eggs broke. "Waaaahhhhhhh!!!! My eggs!!!! Wahhhhh!!!" I cried a lot.

Yesterday morning, Daddy helped color more eggs with me. Yay for Daddy! I put them in the refrigerator very carefully. They did not break. I was relieved.

Early this morning while Mommy, Daddy and I slept, the Easter Beagle came into our home and hid my colored eggs all around my house. I hear that the Easter Beagle is really Snoopy dressed up like a bunny. How silly. He must have put on my bunny hat. I found all the eggs and then hid them again for Mommy and Daddy to find. What a fun game! Snoopy, I mean the Easter Beagle, also left me a super duper yummy treat. Chocolate! But not just any kind of chocolate. It was shaped like Little Bunny Fu Fu! I ate his ears and feet. I'm saving the rest for later.
