My dream vacation would be traveling the world and having a signature dish from each individual place or country. I can smell it now, the wonderful aroma of whatever the food is walking from its kitchen birthplace. I can imagine it being placed directly in front of me, its neat and tidy presentation inches in front of my face, the steam radiating off of it signifying its freshness. I imagine it being very filling, and very delicious all at the same time. I imagine wiping my chops with the colorful napkin afterwards. I think some delicious Borsch would be top. Borsch is one of the best soups ever made. I imagine myself sitting in a cafe near the Red Square, watching the outside atmosphere. I cancel out all of the noise around me. I savor each spoonful as cars fly by and people crisscross every which way, going about their business calmly and swiftly. Maybe I would enjoy some Fish and Chips in London somewhere near the London Eye- a light rain starting that makes everything appear shiny. I savor each chip and watch as the London Eye slowly spins. That would be my ideal, dream vacation.
"Jordan, it's time for bed!"
9 hours later.....
"Hey, Mom, 'morning."
No one answered.
Still no anwser. Jordan got up and looked in the mirror and screamed.
"AHHHHHH! I am so old!! Soon I will get all wrinkly like Grandma!"
Jordan went downstairs and suddenly she found out she was living by herself. Jordan soon realized that living by herself was a good thing.
"Hey, this isn't so bad after all. No annoying three brothers to handle, Mom not telling me what to do, huh, my own cell phone. Yay! I am going to text Ashley!"
Then Jordan went out to Dairy Queen for some ice cream, and everyone called her Mrs.! Then Jordan went out to do a lot of fun stuff. Then she went home and took a nap. When she woke up she yelled, "MOM?!" and Mom said "Yeah?"
Jordan realized she was 9 again!
And she went back to living her annoying life with her three brothers, a weird mom, and no phone.

If my clothes came to life, I don't know what I'd do. My socks are smelly, my shoes are dirty, my pants are worn down, my shirt is way too ugly and just might growl! My hat is itchy. But if they did come to life, what would they look like? Whaty would they say? And then, what would I wear?! Would they eat me? Would they play with my toys? I want to kno what they would do becuase what if they really did? Oh, No! I hear a growl....a scratch..... I open my drawer. They're re...al...ly...a...live?

Dear Katy Perry,
I love your new song, "Wide Awake." It is awesome. You rock. I wish you would make a new song and sing it to me and my friend, Jordan. It is awesome how you made a movie about when you were younger. Your music video is awesome. I love you, Katy Perry. I love your voice. I like your cool clothes. You have a good personality. You rock. You go, girl!
You're a great, most wonderful, and terrific song writer. You really, really have to write more songs. My best friends and i really love listening to your songs. We love to sing your songs together. What I like about you is thta you touch my heart when you sing. My favorite song is "Set Fire to the Rain." I would love to go to one of your concerts. I hope that happens! I could even get a backstage ticket and meet you! OMG! If I was ever a singer I would never be as good as you. I would totally give a shout out to the best singer: YOU! When I grwo up I want to be like you. You are a great role model and a fantastic singer. I want to say that you are the nicest person ever. Please, please meet me. Can you make me your best friend? Can you write a song about me? Can you give me tickets to your concert, please?
On Saturday I went to the park. I got bored and thought about going home. I decided to climb trees. Soon I had climbed a bunch of trees, so many that I made my way to the back of the forest. All of a sudden I came to a huge tree. I started up the giant tree. When I got to the top I heard a sound like "crackle...crack..." Whoosh! The branch snapped.Down I went, along with the branch. That's when I grabbed my hoodie and putm it above my head like a parachute. Then the wind took over and I began to soar! I soared out of the park and down to the ice cream parlor, where my sister and Dad were getting two small sundaes. I soared up to the Vet, where my cat Matty was getting her check up. I went back to the park, and left with a smirk.
When I am flying I feel the smooth wind, and I see the beautiful country, and I smell the mint leaves. I hear the birds and the forest creatures. I can almost touch the sea that is rushing below. I can practically touch the treetops that seem to be speeding by. I soar over the mountaintops and see the snow covering the mountains. I slow down as I get near the skiing place. The scene looks like toys. I see all of the little skiers. Finally I touch down to the soft, light snow.
My town is Vergennes. I like Vergennes because it is where my Mommy grew up. I also like Vergennes Falls. It reminds me of my Papa. It reminds me of my Papa because he loved to fish. One time my brother caught a fish.It was giant! It was bigger than my Dad's foot!
If I won the lottery I would bring my whole family to a Yankee Game at Yankee Stadium, because my whole family likes the Yankees (but we don't all like the same football team!). We would get excited when they scored. I would try to catch one of the homerun balls. You need money to buy tickets to go to a Yankee Game. That is why I want to win the lottery.
If I won the lottery I would buy a new car, and it would be a red mustang with black stripes down the middle. I would move to Texas and I would live on a ranch. I would have wild pigs, deer, and buffalo on the ranch. I would buy two Gernan Shepards and I would buy two more guinea pigs for pets. That's what I would do if I won the lottery.
My brother's birthday is on Valentine's Day. I love my brother. He is turning twelve. I will say "Happy Birthday". I love my brother so, so much, and I love Valentine's Day.
My one wish would be that I was famous with a red guitar, Cody Simpson as a boyfreind. AKA Cody Simpson is the best singer ever! And a nickname JK. It would be my dream and popstars like Justin Beiber and obviously Cody Simpson would like me and respect me like I was one of them (a popstar). You heard it people in LA, thats my dream and people in near cities and towns, thats my dream.
Once I was walking and I came to a wounded baby fox. So I took off my shirt and carefully put the baby fox in. And I hoiseted it on to my back and then I ran home.
I went to the woods and found a hurt squirrel it has a broken arm! I picked it up and put it in my coat and let it's head stick out. I ran home and I took it out of my coat and I showed my mommy and daddy and Zack!!! I said it has a broken leg, we went to the vet. The vet took an x-ray of the squirrel and put a cast on. The squirrel got better!
A wish for me is like a dream. So, here's my wish: I wish to have a dog. If I had a dog it would have a name such as Bella. It would be playful! It would not be harmful in any way. It would be my friend. Okay! You can't tell anyone my wish, or it might not come true! "cause I actually might really get a dog. You don't want to mess it up, do you? Okay! Shhhhhhh!
If I had one wish it would be to spend a whole day from 12:00 a.m to 12:00 with my teacher. My wish is very fun for me to think about. We could go ice skating! We could go shopping and while we were out shopping we could buy a movie and watch it. I love spending time with my teacher. That is my wish about spending the whole day with my teacher.
If I had one wish it would be to fly. I have always wanted to fly. When I was little I jumped off the deck and treid to fly. But, it never happened. I told my Dad that iwanted wings, but he forgot. I asked my Mom for fairy food, so my Mom used my fairy cookbook. I went upstairs and put on fairy make up and "wings." But I never could fly. Maybe soemday, I will!
I have 21 lambs, I have named some of them. Chans, Sower, Winter, Sattle, Headbutt, Skunk, and Lily. The ones thath are almost one years old are called Star, Jill, Fancy, and the two year olds are Ivy and Ebeny. Jackson and Holsten-boy passed away.
When I look under my bed I see toys, like calico critters tucked up in a box. I also see Polly Pockets. They're fun to play with. I see a claico critter house. When I look under my bed I see ponies cozied up in a bag. That's what I see under my bed.
Something I think is cool is I have something new in my life. I have a.....puppy!!!! It is a boxer mix of cocker spaniel. It is a boy dog. He is awesome. He is the best dog on the planet earth.
Peace, love, joy. This is what makes you smile. Hate, die, lose. this is what makes you frown. Don't spend your life frowning. Smile!
I love birds. Birds chirp and let me feed them right out of my hand. I also love them because they are so nice. That's why I love birds so much.
My Aunt Tammy's cows are at my Dad's house in the barn. One of them is named Gouda. I have to feed them every day, and I have to feed them myself. They get hay, grain, grass, and water. That is all they get. They get freedom because they are in a big pen by my sheep and other cows.

Once there was a very spooky haunted house. Nobody lived in the doomed, creepy, scary house! One day one big family moved in the haunted house."The haunted house has a zombie!" screamed the little girl. The brother grabbed his Dad's rifle and "BANG!" goes the zombie and the zombie died.
One time my Mom and I went apple picking. My Mima and Papa went, too. When I got there we went up the hill. There were apples. We walked to the apples, and then I climbed the tree. I got some apples. Then I climbed another tree, and then I almost fell down! We had fun apple picking.
When the basement door opened, first there was a vampire. Eeeeek! Clunk! I turned and screamed. Arhhhhhhhhh! It was the vampire. Then I heard another eeeeek! There was a zombie with big teeth and long sharp nails. EeeeeeK!
Alone in the house
A creaking starts about in
This house, scaring me.
Down in the forest
Where all the leaves are falling,
Ribbit, Hoo Hoo, Shriek.
Alone in the house la-la-la.
Wait! Creak! Shriek! Kk Kk Kk~
Oh great! The front door's locked!
.......just me! Read more »
There I was, in the dark. The power was out, and I fell down the basement stairs! It was cold and damp. Something hit my face. It was bones! It had an ax! But what was it? It grabbed my neck! In a second there was a bloody stump where a head used to be! For the rest of the day there were murders of innocent lives. It smelled of blood in the city.......
Whaa haaa haa haaa ha!
