Encyclopedia Brown - Boy Detective

Today, I read the book Encyclopedia Brown - Boy Detective by Donald J. Sobol.  My mom got it for me from the library.  It's my favorite book!  It is about a boy named Leroy Brown, but the kids at school usually call him Encyclopedia because he is really smart like a detective.  Usually, I start reading a book and I can quit when I want to, but, with this book, I could not put it down.  There is a case in every chapter.  I love mysteries.  I finished this in an hour and a half---my fastest time yet to complete a book!   I think it is the best book ever!

Aunt Linda's Gingerbread Houses

      I am sorry but this post came out late.  My mom's Aunt Linda makes these wonderful gingerbread houses.  She makes her own frosting and even her own gingerbread!  Aunt Linda makes two sometimes three story gingerbread houses.  She even makes the little details in the houses.  Aren't they amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Snow in Longview

Today it snowed in Longview.  I went outside to play.  I threw a snowball in the air, but most of the time, I was clearing the sidewalk with my shoe.  While I was outside, the mail lady drove by and gave us some mail and then she tried to drive off to give the mail to the other people on the street.  I dont think that she had winter tires on the mail car because there was slush on the road and she was stuck.(Mom: we don't have winter tires in the south!-hehe!)  My cousin and I watched as she tried to get unstuck from the slush.  It took a few minutes until she was free.  She drove a few feet away from where she was and then she got stuck again!  So I told my dad to come help.  He and my cousin helped push the car away.  It was so funny!!!
