I have a collection of peepers. I have 15 of them. I got my first peeper in grade 1, my dad got me Gazoo the elephant  on a work trip and brought it home for me. after that I kept getting more. Every peeper comes with a name. My friend Grace and I both have a lot of peepers.

Here are all my peepers together 

Here are all the sea creatures

Here are all the forrest animals 

Here are all the jungle/desert animals 

Here are all the household pets 

I hope I keep getting more peepers through the years, but peepers are hard to find now. My favourite peepers are Spike the hedgehog, Shelly the turtle, and Gazoo the elephant. I love to have peepers!

My Tail:)

I love mermaids. My love for mermaids started because of the show H2O, Just Add Water, its a show about 3 girls who become mermaids when they are stranded on Mako Island, and they cant tell anyone! Its really good and rated TV-PG, but one of the best things is its Australian!!!!! I ordered a fin fun mermaid tail from I got a orange tail and a orange bikini top and bottom. Shipping is $30 and it comes in10-20 days. I hope mine comes soon because my family and I are going to Ontario soon and we are staying with friends who have a pool, so I can use it there.

C is for Cookie thats Good Enough for Me!

This week I made chocolate chocolate cookies. My mom said I needed to bake by myself, so I found a bunch of recipes to try. I started with these chocolate cookies because they seemed really easy to make. The cookies taste like brownies and smell so good. :) My sisters really liked them, they said that their good because their soft and chewy on the inside. I found the recipe on pinterest . I love to bake on my own, but I hate taking things out of the oven, its so hot on my face! 


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In large bowl, beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. 
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

I Love Camp!

Last week I went to Winkler Bible Camp.  I was in Charity cabin.  I went from August 6th to August 10th.  I went with my friend Abby.  My counsellors names were Marissa and Chelsea.  My favourite activities were ropes, climbing wall and horses.  At horses, I rode Dolly.  My favourite cat was Leo.  Leo is white.  My favourite dog was Buckles.  My favourite pony was Acorn.  At the climbing wall, I did 3 walls and I made it to the top every time!  I hope I can go with Abby again next year.

I'm Going to Camp

I am going to camp in a week with my friend Abby. Hannah is going the same week.  I love going to camp!  My favourite parts of camp are horses and ropes.  There is a lake at camp but it's like a giant puddle.  I'm never homesick.  I'm actually sad when they come to pick me up because I like camp so much.
