Uno--the kid-friendly family card game

 Haihai! About an hour ago, me, Mom, and Anda (heh heh) started playing Uno. Earlier, we had played Phase ten--not so good for kids. On the other hand, Uno=child-friendly. Oh man, was it fun. We couldn't stop! We pretended there was a magic charm. Whoever had it won. Incantation for self-charm: "I will try my hardest to win this game, in all that i see and do!" Incantation for charming others: "I will help you out on this card game, if it's the last thing i do on it!" Man, we could do sneaky moves, like abrupt color changes. (Color box: Blue, Yellow, Red, Green.)
Also secret weapons!
(Weapons: wild card (lets you choose the new color on the color box), draw four wild (same as wild card except the next player has to draw four their turn), draw two (next player draws two for their turn), reverse (Reverses order of playing), and skip (Skips next player in the line's turn). We strategically placed our cards to emerge victorious.
In love with Uno,

The awe of vitamin pills

Yo there! About a week ago, Sunday night, I learned how to swallow pills whole! At first I needed a cup of water, but a few days later I was able to do it without the water! Bye!
PS: The first time, I chewed my sour white vitamin C. It tasted horrible! The next night I swallowed it with the water, the next night we switched to chewable vitamin Cs that taste like candy. A few nights later, here I am, able to swallow the small one whole and without water, and chew my vitamin C.
PPS: The small one is vitamin B. It gives me neon-colored pee.
PPPS: Heh, I made a rhyme. Dad's back.

The snowball fight

Today is a day of Winter...the second, in fact. Dad shoveled the driveway today, and after that Dan did, then Dad, then me and Dad started a snowball fight! We had such a fun time, especially because Anda joined halfway through! Dad also had a special move, "double-down digger", where he  threw snow behind him, hitting all behind him. Here are  two photos of the occasion:

On the second one, i look disformed, but I'm only looking to the right. Oh, and we're living in Longmont, Colorado at the time of this post.

Grandma's house: A plum-picking experience

Today, i had the most wonderful plum-picking experience. I went up a ladder next to a tall plum tree and...well, picked plums. I felt a bit queasy at first, but after a little, i felt kinda better. Here is the directions for picking plums off a tall tree:

  1. Climb a ladder by the tree.
  2. If you want to pick from a different branch, move the ladder.
  3. Reach out and pull the plum off the branch. Repeat if necessary.
  4. Throw away wrinkled plums. If only slightly wrinkled, do not

That is how. Here is a photo of me up a ladder, reaching out for a plum.

Have a lovely time plum-picking!

book idea!

hey there, readers! i just came up with a great idea for a story a week and three days ago! it came to me through a dream. at first i thought it was a nightmare, but when i woke up, i got the feel that it could be used as a story called "rise of the phoenix." let me give a sneak peek of this story:

one day, this kid named harry got bored of playing outside, so he decided to look for fun elsewhere. after about an hour of searching for somewhere else to play, he said, "i bet there is only one place left to go: the neighbor's yard." he started to climb his brick wall when he noticed something suspicious on a brick. on the wall was a button that looked like part of the brick!

so that is all i am giving! if i wrote any further, this whole book would be on my blog!

i will start to write rise of the phoenix on saturday.

zombie sign

mom told me about a construction sign hack that made it say "zombies ahead". dad found a photo of it, and together we decided to photoshop in some zombies with ms paint. here is the original:
and here is the new one:

the real small thing in the tree is another zombie. this is the way it went:
somebody made a joke on the sign, i made a joke on the joke to give it more sense. i used ms paint instead of dad using photoshop.
