My Grandfather

Three days ago, my grandfather, that got the Ushanka that I told you about, came into town! At 9:15 P.M., his plane arrived and he came to our house. I went swimming, shot Bb guns, and had fun with him.

Bye! Until next time I write!

Friday's Coyotes Game

Last Friday, six days ago, I went to the Coyotes game with my family. I had a good time watching the game we were in row H, behind the Penalty Box. That very game, we clinched the playoffs. Woohoo! The second Whiteout in a row! So if clinching the playoffs is the case with the game, then we had to win, and sure enough, we did 3-4. So that's going to be a good memory for all of us!

The Coyotes are in the Playoffs!

The 2011 Hockey Playoffs started yesterday and the Phoenix Coyotes made it! They had their first game of the playoffs yesterday against the Detroit Red Wings.The Coyotes lost 4-2 that game so the Detroit Red Wings are leading the series 1-0. The first team to win 4 games wins the series and that team goes on to the next round. I think the Coyotes will win the series. Well, at least I hope they do. Anyway, it will be interesting to see who wins the series!

Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 was an awesome Christmas. The reason my Christmas was awesome is because I got lots of cool gifts, I got to see family, and I got to sleep in and stay up late. Some of the cool gifts I got were a new foosball table, a new trampoline, and more. Most of my family gave me money for Christmas which I used to buy a new iPod Touch! I also got to see lots of family over my Christmas break. My aunt, uncle and grandma came to my house to visit the week of Christmas. After Christmas my mom took me to visit more family in Texas. I got to see my grandfather and his family along with more aunts and uncles. I got to see my great grandma, too. Every day I was in Texas I didn't have to go to bed until midnight.

I hope your Christmas was as good as mine was. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :)

Officer's Ushanka

Ushankas. I am inspired by them. I've heard about them. I love them. They're very good for a bleak climate, like Russia. That's where they're from. Some ushankas have ear flaps to keep your ears warm if your outside. You probably have seen ushankas before with the ear flaps down. I have a real Police Officer's Ushanka. Let me tell you the details about them. Some ushankas are made out of sheepskin, I believe. On the front of some ushankas, they might have a logo. If a ushanka is gray, it means it's a military personnel ushanka. If it's green, it is a camouflage ushanka. If it is blue it means it is a police officer ushanka, like mine. Let me tell you how I got mine. In 1990, my grandfather went on a mission trip to Russia and got the hat. Then for about 21 years it spent its time in the back of his closet. Then one day he decided to give it to me and my brother. After reading up on them and seeing them, I wanted to have my own. So, I was really excited to have one of my own.

If you ever heard of a game called Team Fortress 2, then you'll probably know about this. In team Fortress 2, my favorite class is Heavy Guy and he's Russian. When I saw a ushanka on top of his head, it looked awesome. Then, I thought that looked like a police hat, so I wanted it too. It was my dream and I realized it! (It came true.) It was my first hat. It was an actual Team Fortress 2-wise gift from my brother!

If you've never seen a ushanka before, this is me wearing one.

Ear flaps up:

Ear flaps down:

I hope you all have had a happy new year! :) :D :o)

Costume Party

Now that we are in our new house(and in a neighborhood), we can finally go trick or treating! We used to live in an area where there were not very many houses. We would have to drive to different neighborhoods to go trick-or-treating. Most of our time was driving around instead of getting candy at lots of houses. That was not very much fun.

We are going to have our first costume party, too! We are going to invite a few families, roast marshmallows, and have fun! All of the kids will trick or treat together in the neighborhood and then play at our house.

I am planning on dressing up as a scary ghost. I wonder what everyone else will dress up as. What are you going to be dressing up as for Halloween?

Our party is going to be so fun. I can hardly wait!

As we prepare for Halloween I became curious about it. I looked up information online about Halloween and thought that I would share with you what I found.

Halloween is really the eve of All Saints' Day. We get to celebrate it by dressing up and trick or treating or giving out candy. Halloween is primarily celebrated in the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. It is said to orignally have roots from the Celtic festival of Samhain as well as the Christian holiday, All Saints' Day, however it is mostly a secular holiday celebration today.

What are you going to dress up as? Happy Halloween! :o)
