Mika's first (?) story

Mika wrote this story yesterday. I think it's quite good. I'm providing the punctuation in parenthesis for easier reading.

A Job

One day I needed like a 100 bucks but didn't know how to earn it. But then it came to me. I had to get a job(,) I wanted to baby site(.) I wanted to baby site the most crazy girl on our block(,) Nancy Higinstire. She is crasy(.) She is so crazy that she eats paper! I know(,) I know(,) I'm kind of weird. Hey(,) I know what I'll do "I'LL DO IT(.)"

So I did(.) I walked right over(,) I knocked (and) said(, ")do you need babysiting tonight(?".) He said (")yes(,) I do(,) thank you very much(.) I'll pay you 100 dollars to babysite her(.) She is very crazy!(")

(")Ok(,) i said(, ")I'll do it. Thank you very much(").

So when I walked in there she was(,) stuck to the sealing with (caramel) because she got it out of the kitchen again. I (said ")this will be hard(") and it was. First she tried to poop in the sink and wash in the toilet(.) I(t) was dis(g)usting.

I did not like my job but still(,) I got 100 dollars.i needed the money for a flat screen tv she wanted. so i told her id get it. when i got homesat down to rest just when i was getting comfy the phone rang

Christmas preparations

Yesterday the girls and I made gingerbread houses from a "Gingerbread mini village kit" that we bought at target. The kit came with 5 small houses, rather than one big one, and I think it was perfect for the girls - as they would have fought like cats and dogs if they'd had to decorate the same house AND they would have probably not finished. As it was, Camila had only enough patience to do two houses, and Mika one. Their creations are below, Camila decided to follow the pictures on the box while Mika chose to let her own imagination guide her.

Camila's houses:


MIka's house:


Last night, after Mike came home from work, we went to the Xmas tree lot that opened up at the closed car dealership around the block and picked up a Xmas tree. Mike carried it home on his shoulders (I think he's still sore!). Today we decorated it, though by "we" I really mean "me" - Mika had no interest (she got her own tree a couple of days ago) and Camila found other things to do. In any case, here is the result:
