Remembrance Day

Damavand, Iran

Hello everyone! As you know today is Remembrance day. Today I am going to share with you my poem that I came up with last year, about Remembrance day! My poem is called “We Will Always Remember Them.”

 

For those who fought,

for those who died,

for those who lived,   

for those who tried,

and for those who saved our Canadian lives,

we will always remember them.  

 

For those who risked their courageous lives,

who left their daughters and their wives,

who fought at war and gave us peace,

we will always remember them.

 

I hoped you liked my poem as much as I liked writing it! I think I had about two or three other verses to the poem, but I forgot how they went……. Please tell me in the comments, if you have any favorite poems about Remembrance day, if you made up any poems or comment on what Remembrance Day means to you! ( Just some suggestions on what to comment )   ; )

Goodbye and have a nice day!

Sincerely, Abbey

Halloween

The Great Jack-O-Lantern BlazeCreative Commons License

Hello everyone! Today I am writing about Halloween and some of my traditions that I do on Halloween.

This year for Halloween I was a devil. What where you for Halloween? I thought the devil would be a unique costume but I was wrong. I saw a lot of people at my school and out trick or treating who where Devils this year. I guess it was a very popular costume this year. I probably saw over ten people in devil costumes! Did you see a lot of people in devil costumes this year or is it just me.

My Traditions

I go to my friend, Ambar’s house every year and a lot of her family and her family friends come (that includes my family) and we have a party! All the kids go out trick or treating together, in a big group and it gets super crowded at the front door of someones house waiting for candy! We always plan a big route to make sure that we get lots of candy! Around the middle of our route we stop at the fire hall and they hand out free hot chocolate, hot dogs and sometimes even Tim Bits!

When we all get back home from trick or treating we have the biggest, most epic, awesome trading session you would ever imagine! All the kids dump out all their candy on Ambar’s down stairs floor and trade. We trade Coffee Crisps for Smarties and Hershey’s for Kit Kats and so much more trading.

After trading almost every year we will show a haunted house for the parents. This year I was one of those people who walk you through the whole haunted house. I was  actually pretty creepy. I can walk up and down the stairs in a really creepy way that I wish I could show you but of course I can’t in a post.

First, picture yourself like you are actually walking through this haunted house. I walk you into a pitch black room  and slam the door behind you as I walk you through the dark room I make a creepy hum which gives it a really creepy effect.

Suddenly, a hand grabs you from underneath the table and you hear a high pitch scream which  scares you a whole lot! when we are almost at the door to the next room you hear banging from the other room and a soft “help me.” Before I open the door, I explain to you that I’m not going to come in with you for no particular reason. I push you in there and slam the door behind you.

I’m not to sure what happened in the other room because I did not go in the room, but I do know the lights flicker and there is a scary clown in there. Next I run to the last room to get ready to act. When you leave the 2nd room and walk into the 3rd room, my friend Thai is dressed up all scary and he runs out of the bathroom and stabs me. I scream as you run up the stairs for your life.

Well that’s the end. I sort of over exaggerated, but I am pretty close to the real thing.

Well that’s it. I hope you had fun reading all about my Halloween! I would like to hear about your Halloween and how it went for you, so make sure to leave a comment!

Goodbye and have a nice day.

Sincerely, Abbey

My Dog Leo

In the above picture, you can see my dog Leo in shorts and a shirt! The day I took this picture, I was doing a photo shoot for all my pets.

Leo is 3 quarters beagle and 1 quarter Springer spaniel. He is 4 years  old, although he’s  basically 5 because his birthday is in a month. Leo can do a lot of tricks like jump jumps that are as high as my knees go up to, shake a paw, sit, jump up on command and tons more! He likes to play fetch but he is not so good on the bringing back the ball part. I tried to teach him to play fetch but he does not seem to want to bring the ball back, so I chase him around my backyard about 10 times and finally grab the ball out of his mouth after we are both tired out.

Sometimes he even plays hide and go seek with me or tag! He loves people but barks at dogs when they are walking by, but I think he is barking at them because he wants to play with them.

Leo is a great dog but not so great when it comes to walking him. He will pull so much that your arm feels like its going to fall off! My dog Piggy is a great walker though. I will make a post about her soon so you can read about her too! I might also make a post on my cat, Milo.

Goodbye and have a nice day.

Winter

Hello everybody,

As you know, winter is coming soon. I am writing about winter because right this minute I am looking out the window and it is snowing outside! I cant can’t believe its it’s snowing already! At the start of November!

Winter is my favorite season, besides summer of course. Winter is a time of year where we can have fun in the snow and build snow forts, go sledding, go skiing, build snowmen, have snowball fights, make snow angels and tons more.  When I get cold or tired I can go inside my house and have a warm cup of hot chocolate in front of the fire.

Another one of my favorite parts of winter is that our family goes on vacations a lot in winter. We go to Mexico in the winter often, because it’s really sunny there. even in winter! We go in winter because my mom and dad don’t really like snow very much. I’ve been to Mexico three or four times, all during winter. Where have you been for vacations?

I really like how pretty the trees look with all the snow on them, especially cedars. I have a lot of cedars in my backyard and they make me feel like I’m walking in a winter wonderland! What Is your favorite part about winter, and why? Thanks for reading and have a nice day! ( :

All About Me

 

Hello everybody!

My name Is Abbey and I am in Ms. Smith’s class grade 6\7 split. (I’m in grade 7). I live in Comox Valley, British Columbia in Canada.

I absolutely love horse back riding! I have only been riding for a bit more then than a year now but I think I will be riding for the rest of my life. I ride at a place called Sprout Meadows every Tuesday and I ride a horse named Cheyenne. My best friend, Ambar, also rides at Sprout Meadows too!

I also love art.  Almost every day I do art\drawing either at home or at school. Whenever I am at school and I see that we are doing art next I get really excited! Art is my favorite subject in school. I mostly sketch because I am not very good at painting but I still also enjoy painting.

My favorite food is pizza, chocolate if that even counts), fruits, pumpkin pie, raw vegetables and a lot more. For breakfast pancakes, waffles and French toast. (Probably some of the most popular breakfasts.)

I go in a club called D.I (Destination Imagination)  after school. If you do not know what D.I. is it’s a club that you go to after school that has challenges with fun skits, and challenges where you have to build towers or bridges and stuff like that, but you have to have them free standing or no tape or those types of challenges.

Some more fun facts about me – my favorite animal is a horse, I have a dog named Leo, I have a cat named Milo, and I have another dog named Piggy, my favorite color is purple, my favorite holiday is Christmas and I love school!

Goodbye and have a nice day.
