Things I did this month:
Got my own guitar
Finished my first real chapter book, The Wizard of Oz
My first sleepover party!

Random Conversations:
Ari (while playing his guitar): Ok, Ok, now I'm going to play pretty music.... (playing softly)... does it sound like someone's getting married?  Does it sound like that?

*    *    *

Ari (while eating a burger for dinner):  Yummmmm (eye's closed, tilting head back)... I love burgers because I love the way that it tastes.

Ari (on decorating his Chanukah cards):  I want it to look fancy.
