YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! MY B-DAY IS TOMORROW!!!!!!!! I’LL BE 12!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!


p.s. Tomorrow I’m seeing the new Harry Potter movie! I can’t wait! Have you guys seen it yet? was it good



Okay, so yesterday we drove to Woodinsville, but on the way there we were at a DEAD STOP for 45 MINUTES!  But we got an orange gerbil named…Clementine! She is adorable! i’ll post pics of her asap. Friday night we saw Brandi carlile (a really good singer if you don’t know her)! she was amazing! today my mom and i had a shopping spree cause i need winter clothes. I got some awesome shirts, pants, monster pj’s , and UGGS! But i can’t wear the uggs til my b-day cause they’re my preset. 😦 Lastly, IT’S SNOWING! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! We walked out of the mall, and it was SNOWING! It even stuck a little bit here! everything is tinged with white. SO BEAUTIFUL! I hope we don’t have school tomorrow…


OMYGOSH! My mom and I were happily sitting by the fireplace when we heard a skidding of tires on the street outside. We looked out and there were 2 police cars, 1 fire truck, and a normal lady’s car. They talked with the lady for a bit, then the fire truck left. But, one of the police men ran up the street to our neighbor who is really sick’s house and was there for a few minutes. When he came back, my mom asked, “Officer, is everything alright?!” He gave her a look and said, “Personal matters involving your neighbors.” I WONDER WHAT SHE DID? :<

This is the totally awesome cookie recipe that Helen K. and I INVENTED! It’s called dynamite! I swear we’ll become famous someday… So here it is:

2 cups of flour

1 stick of butter (room temperature)

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 large spoonful of peanut butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. First, mix the butter and the white sugar in an electric mixer until light and creamy. Then, beat in the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Gradually add the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and flour. Finally, add the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Bake for 14 minutes ( if you want them normal), or 16 minutes (if you want them extra crispy). This recipe makes about 28 cookies.

Enjoy your DYNAMITE!!!!!
