the tsums introduction

Hi! Wow, I am so tired.We were at Disney world for a whole week. It was awesome! Buuuut, the tsums need an introduction, so I might as well introduce them. What are tsums, you ask? Their  just the cutest, funniest, awesomest toys ever! I own Rey, Mickey, Yoda, and Stitch.:)

Here are my tsums practicing a cheerleading formation,


And a tower.


They didn't do very well.

Here they are exploring the giant chair. (Stitch can't seem to climb up.)

Above all, they are cute, lovable, adventurous little toys and I'm really glad that Emma introduced them to me.
Bye!

MY TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still can't believe it!
To explain the title, I signed up for a writing camp hosted by Grace. Grace, I used all three prompts and my team logo.(I'll underline the prompts.) By the way, I'm on Team Quill. :)

Let's begin!
**************************************************************************
 My day began as usual. My parents fighting. ''They shouldn't go to public school anymore. Those people aren't any good!'' ''They have to! Do you want them to be friendless?'' and on and on. ''Do you think their going to get divorced?'' my older sister Tracy whispered to me. ''I hope not.'' I answered. In truth, I loved both my parents a lot, but they were really different. Dad was loud and crazy in a good way, while Mom was more quiet. ''Mom, can we go to the mall now?'' Tracy yelled, interrupting my thoughts. ''Sure. Be careful!'' Mom yelled back. We got into Tracy's new car and drove off. Mom let us go to the mall every Saturday. Tracy was silent the whole way there. ''What's wrong, Trace?'' I asked as we got out of the car. She sighed and looked at me. ''I just don't think I could handle it if Mom and Dad get divorced, but I'm sure they can't avoid it.'' ''That's not true! They can't get divorced now!'' I cried, mostly trying to convince myself. Tracy just shook her head. We browsed the mall in silence, then went to the park. I walked around a little bit, then went to the bridge. I found Tracy leaning on the rail of the bridge, staring off into space.
"Tracy?", I said softly. She whipped her head around, startled. "Oh, it's you..." she said, and resumed her position. "What are you looking at?", I asked. "Oh nothing", she replied. "Tracy, you're a really bad liar." "I'm not lying!" replied Tracy. "Ok, fine, I'm looking at a really weird tree. It kind of looks like a person." I looked closer and saw the tree in the distance. It really did look like a fat old man with a large knobby nose. "I think I'll go check it out." said Tracy. "Umm....Ok, I'll come with you." We crossed the bridge and ran over to the tree. It looked even stranger up close. Suddenly, Tracy got a call on her phone. "Hello? Oh, OK Mom, we will be back soon." "What did she say?" I asked. "She said it's getting late and we need to get back home for dinner" Tracy replied. We both walked to the car, hopped in and drove home. When we got home, Dads truck was gone. "Where is Dad, is he going to have dinner with us?" I asked Mom. She never spoke, never made a sound, but the look in her eyes told me exactly what was about to happen.
Tracy stood up, knocking over a chair in the process, and rushed out of the house. I heard a door slam and a car speeding away. Mom, suddenly looked very tired. Mom and I sat and ate in silence. "Go to bed now Mia." she said. I slowly climbed the stairs to my room and tumbled into bed. What felt like moments later, but was probably hours, something woke me up. I went to my window and pushed back the curtain.

I saw the tree from the park, in my front yard. I rubbed my eyes and looked again, but yes, it looked exactly like that old tree. I also saw Tracy standing under the tree. As I watched, two people came out of the woods and waved Tracy over to them. After talking to them, Tracy went with them to the tree and disappeared inside it. 

How did you like that?(And YES, Carmen is dressed as Rey!)
Goodbye!
