I Have a Pen Pal

When I was shoveling the snow in the driveway, suddenly I heard a knock on the window.  I didn't know who it was so I turned around and looked in all windows except the one that my mom was knocking on.  Finally I looked in that window and saw my mom showing me a letter.  I pointed at the letter and then at myself as if asking if it was for me.  My mom nodded so I hurried up with the shovelling.  When I ran in the house, all wet from the snow I heard Aaron and David playing cars upstairs and Aaron suddenly stopped and said, "Da-dee!  Da-dee!"  I looked up to tell Aaron it was not "Da-dee" but before I could say, "It's not Da-dee.  It's me!" I heard mom calling from the living room saying that it's the first letter from my pen pal.  

I quickly got the envelope and tore it open and then I was really sad because I noticed there was a cute picture on the envelope, and then mom made me even more sad saying, "Oh, that's too bad, I could have done it the right way for you."  I felt dumb.  I saw that on the torn envelope it said "I'm Emma."  I took out the letter and it had lots of questions.  It also had a picture of her.  I quickly ran upstairs and put it in one of my picture frames that I got on my seventh birthday, and  haven't really used.  I also glued the cute envelope back together.  I ran back downstairs with a paper to write back to her.  I wrote answers to all questions and I asked three questions back.  I drew a cute picture on the envelope, too and I sent the letter the next day.  I hope she gets it soon and writes back as soon as possible.

I found out Emma wanted to be my pen pal because my mom and her mom are blog friends.  Emma's mom found out that I'm the same age as her daughter and wrote an email asking if I wanted to be Emma's pen pal.

I know I'm writing pretty late about Christmas, but I didn't have time because I was visiting my Polish grandparents.  I think it's sad being away from home on a holiday:( especially Christmas): I am almost always away from home on holidays.  The present I'm most excited about is from David. It's a MICROSCOPE!!!  Awesome huh?  I also got a few things from Hannah Montanna which I really like too.  Well I wish you a very happy (even though I'm late) Christmas!

Well, I'm kind of gonna stop talking about Christmas, and I'll start talking about what we did at my Polish grandparents (babcia and dziadek:  read "bopcha and jadek").  Me, David and dad went ice skating (just to learn, cause I don't know how to and at school we go ice skating once a week).  Well I learned a lot about ice skating.  Next I went with mom but it was the same except I fell seven times and now I have a huge, nasty, black bruise.  We also went to an animal museum, with "stuffed" animals.   I didn't go into two rooms cause of the freakiness:  room one:  I know that it was only rubber masks, but from far away they looked very scary, so I wanted to get closer to see that they're rubber.  So with closed eyes mom got me as close as can be, but then she told me that their eyes were WIDE open so I ran away squealling like little baby pig.  Room two:  a gigantic crab that was three feet.  I wanted to go see the butterflies, but I would have to go past the crab and a huge snake.  No.  I would not do that.  That's all about the museum. Actually it's all about everything.
