A Rough Start to a New Year

Happy New Year.  We have had a rough start to 2014 because our family was sick for the first 8 weeks of it.  We have had a bad flu season and although we all got our flu shots last fall, my brother and I got one virus after another.  Mommy and Daddy took good care of us and even they got sick.  It was inevitable since they had to play doctor to us.  After 21 days on a strong antibiotic, I finally kicked it and now I just mild, residual symptoms.  My doctor thinks I may have allergies, so I need to get tested for allergies soon.  Even though we've been sick, I've been playing with my brother and enjoying our winter.  We've had some warm weather which allows us to go outside to play and get fresh air.  We've had some colder wet weather which brings us much needed moisture and water.  I'm ready for spring to be here so I can be healthy once and for all.

Merry Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas!  This year has been a wonderful holiday season as my brother and I have been looking at all the Christmas lights in our neighborhood, we visited with Santa and Mrs. Claus at their workshop, we would sing carols as they play in our car, and we have watched many holiday movies.  Buddy the Elf stayed with us for 2 weeks as he was watching over us to make sure we behaved ourselves.  Every night he would go home to the north pole to report back to Santa if we were naughty or nice.  We skyped with Santa a few times and in the end, I ended up on the nice list.  Christmas Eve was spent with Grandpa John and Suzanne during the day, Grandma Lu, Joce, Auntie, Uncle Jon, and Uncle Robert in the afternoon, and with all our family at Mom & Pop's at night.  I had so much fun playing with my cousins.  Christmas morning, Santa brought my brother and I a train table and train set.  We were so excited.  We spent all day with Grandma Katy and Grandpa Al and our entire family at their house.  It was a fun filled day.  All together I got so many presents: a train set, a scooter, clothes, money, pj's, hot wheels, a train board game, art supplies, buzz light year, and lots of yummy treats.  It was a wonderful holiday season and I can't wait until next Christmas is here.

Holiday Traditions

Every year since I have been born, we visit various neighborhoods and look at Christmas lights.  This year we stayed closer to home and got to explore all the decorated houses within our city and neighboring city of Mission Viejo.  We went several times this year and we would take hot chocolate and cookies on our lights tour.  It was so beautiful.  We also visited Santa at the Mission Viejo library.  I wasn't took excited to see Santa though.  I thought I would be brave, but as soon as my brother started crying, the water works started for me too.  It was still a fun night exploring Santa's workshop.

Happy 4th Birthday Palmer!

I celebrated my 4th birthday today and we had a fun party with my family and friends.  Since I like Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, I had a Daniel Tiger birthday party.  I got to play with my cousins and friends and it was so much fun.  We had a breakfast party, so it started early and I was able to play with new toys all afternoon.  I am a big boy now that I am 4 and so much has happened over the last year.  I go to school now and I love my teacher Ms B and all my friends.  I can write all my letters, numbers, my full name, and I am learning to write different words.  I know all my continents and many of my states.  We went on vacation to Palm Springs and Hawaii.  I love going on vacation.  I know how to ride my balance bike with my feet up.  I love playing hot wheels and garbage trucks.  I love playing outside and running around.  I know how to swim and I really like my swim coach Scott.  I love spending time with my family and I am starting to share and play nicely with my little brother Parker.  I am also growing so tall.  This has been a very adventurous year and I can't wait to see what "4" has in store for me.

Lions and Tigers and Bears...

We went to the Irvine Zoo today.  Although it is a small zoo, we got to see many wild animals.  We got to touch a snake, pet some sheep, and see many animals such as coyotes, owls, deer, bear, horse, and even a mountain lion.  Mommy is afraid of mountain lions.  I spread my arms out to see if I am as big as an eagle.  It was a great, fun filled, family day.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  This fall season we went to Irvine Regional Park on rode their train.  I love the train and Grandpa takes me and Parker to ride often.  This particular visit was with Mommy, Daddy, Parker, Grandma Lu, Joce, Auntie Janelle, and Uncle Robert.   We got to play in their pumpkin patch and haunted house.  I will admit I did not want to go in the haunted house though.  It was too scary.  I had a fun day with our family.  On Halloween night, I stayed home and gave out candy to all our trick or treaters.  I had been recovering from being sick, so I decided it would be more fun to stay indoors.  Maybe next year I will venture out.
