Series-Watching and Dancing to the Tune

April 1, 2011

There have been many evenings of my favorite series “Six Feet Under,” but now that has come to an end. My favorite part is the opening credits with the fun music. In fact, I have developed my own special dance routine.

I also like the part where they have a birthday party with lots of candles and one scene where one of the guys says that he had a bad dream. I sometimes have bad dreams too and sometimes it’s my birthday and I blow out the candles, so I could relate to both those things.

Another opening I like a lot is also Dexter. That one I don’t dance to, but it has cool shots of him shaving, of red salsa, of Dexter eating an egg and flossing his teeth. Some mornings I have my breakfast just like Dexter.

I don’t actually watch these series, but I get excited when my parents do. My favorite programs are still cartoons and my all-time favorite is still “Cars,” with Lightning McQueen. He’s so funny! And just yesterday we had the “Incredible” family over, full of action and explosions.

 

 

Me at the Library

March 26, 2011

One of my favorite places for playing, especially during rainy or wintry days is the library. Apart from many books, they have a kid’s part where I love to play. Often there are other kids to play with, but unfortunately, some of them act less than civilized and are very immature and childish for their age.

But the good thing is that there is always a lot of things to do. One of my favorite games is called “Dats.” That is when I pile up various pieces and then suddenly go “dats” and everything falls down to the ground. As you can see, I had just prepared my next round of Dats in this photo, regardless of all the noisy kids running around.

Another great thing about the library is that we almost always go out for lunch after. Most of the times, it is my beloved Burger King, but sometimes it is yummy yummy pizza. It is a great way to round up a fun day at the library.

 

 

Arameis, the Hockeyplayer

March 2, 2011

 

I am a big fan of sports and love watching and playing hockey, basketball and T-ball (= soccer). Here you can see me playing with my first hockey stickee along with my favorite red car shoes. My Dad says I can hit the ball — or is it puck? — really hard and he makes the goal sound and siren when I score a goal.

When we have snow here, which has not been very often, we take my hockey stick and play outside. But I can’t wait to finally put on skates and play on real ice instead of pretend ice. In the meantime, I keep practicing my hockey skills to be ready when the moment comes.

 

 

Gingerbread Boy

January 12, 2011

 

Christmas was great fun! We did many cool things like the Santa Claus Parade and the Bright Lights at Stanley Park. And I got to meet Santa for the first time! He was coming down the stairs shouting “hohoho” with bells ringing. He got me some gifts, not the gaga (= garbage truck) I had wished for but instead a car-wash with many cars. I have a great car collection now and one day I will write a post about it.

At the Gingerbread Lane in the Hyatt Hotel I got to pose as a a gingerbread boy. I like the yellow bow-tie best. They had a lot of gingerbread things there and all of them looked so yummy. I noticed that some smarties were missing on my gingerbread man (but it wasn’t me, I promise!).

Yet the bestest thing was the toy train they had running at that place. It went round and round. I’ve been a fan of trains ever since watching Thomas and Chuggington. I really like trains and can’t wait to be riding on one myself soon!

My First Painting Endeavours

November 21, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a new passion for painting as you can see above and you have one of my recent works as well. My parents say I have talent, but I don`t know about those things. I just know that I really enjoy painting.

And between my parents it is pretty unbalanced. My Dad may be able to do many things, but painting is surely not one of them! And on the other hand, my mother is very good at drawing and painting. So in this case I hope I am leaning towards my mother`s side! Well, anyhow, you decide. And perhaps, if I keep enjoying it like this I will be a painter one day. Or else a hockey player.

 

 

My Halloween 2010 Disguise!

November 13, 2010

For Halloween this year I chose this Tiger costume. It was simple but effective and I chose it because I like “Tigger” from Winnie the Pooh. I could roaaaaar like a Tiger and really scare people! I also had a hanging tail which you cannot see in the picture above.

We went to the mall with my grandparents and I saw many other kids dressed up and it was fun. There was not a lot of “trick or treating” for me this Halloween, but we had candy and colored popcorn, so that was good too. Next year I wanna be even scarier (maybe a lion?) and we will probably go from house to house in the search for yummy candy!

Hockey, Hockey, Hockey!

November 11, 2010

I went to my very first hockey game and it was sooo much fun! At the beginning I was overwhelmed with all the flashing lights and the music! I didn`t know what to say or think at first, but one thing was clear: I liked it!

Then after the anthem, the game started and I got to see all the hockey players. Whenever the Canucks scored a goal, everybody jumped up and was really happy and they sounded this long loud horn. My only bad experience was the “churro incident.” My Dad had bought this super-big churro for me and I was really enjoying it while watching the game. But then suddenly, it fell down and nobody could reach it and so I was suddenly left without churros! (But my Dad bought me churros a few days later which I dipped in chocolate sauce and it was really yummy).

My Dad is a big hockey fan and he often watches it on TV. After my own live hockey experience, I am also following it and I imitate some of the hockey moves myself with my hockey-stick and I pretend to be skating on ice just like them. You see, I am a hockey player too!

 

 

Yes, Reading is Fun!

November 6, 2010

I have my own book collection … kinda like my Daddy. Well, maybe he has more but his usually don`t have many pictures just bunches of words. I don`t think they are as exciting as mine!

It`s also great to have friends that like books, especially librarians who bring you new books every once in a while. Most of my books are in English, but there are some in Spanish, too. I like it when my parents show me what some of those words say and they also teach me some of the sounds.

Reading is fun and I can already recognize some of the letters. My favorite letter so far is “M”, which I see in many places outside and I like to point it out to my parents. Also, I am pretty good at colors, some might even say I am better than my parents!

 

My Birthday Cake and Two Parties for Me!

November 5, 2010

 

This is my beautiful birthday cake, made by …ehem… me and also with the help of my mother. It not only looks but also tastes very delicious!

My birthday event was great fun! We had actually two parties … one with friends and the other with family. The good thing about that is more food and especially more presents for me!

I had a fun time on both events. The first one was rather loud and chaotic with many peopleĀ  talking at once and some kids running around and the second one with the family was equally fun and rewarding. I especially enjoyed the Happy Birthday songs on both occasions, one of them in French and another one in Farsi! It`s too bad that birthdays are only once a year because one can get used to them so easily … Anyhow, one turns two only once!

This is what I did to Daddy`s Glasses!

October 7, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, I was curious and wanted to try them on, upside down. My Dad is usually pretty sharp in these cases and very careful, but this time around he did not anticipate my move. As I was trying them on, they snapped in two!

My mother got upset and made me feel a little guilty about what I had done. But fortunately my Dad stepped in and defended me telling her that I was too young and didn`t know any better.

Truth is, I know what I did was wrong but at the same time it was an accident; I didn`t mean to break them. Though I also know I shouldn`t have played with Daddy`s glasses in the first place!
