My 17th Birthday!

Standard

Hey everyone!

Today we celebrated my 17th birthday!!! Technically my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but since tomorrow is Sunday and were busy all day, we decided to celebrate the day before. (You won’t catch me complaining!) πŸ˜‚ 😜

For my birthday meal, I had chicken nuggets, fried potatoes, salad and garlic bread.

Yum!

And for dessert….. We had homemade ice cream (which I made, by the way 😁) And guys. It tasted better than store bought ice cream! Like, seriously. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing! πŸ˜‹ πŸ˜‚

We had a bunch of toppings on top, such as chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce and caramel sauce (which I also made), blueberries, pecans and sprinkles. AND. The only thing that had any sugar was the sprinkles. πŸ˜€

It was all really good. It’s been 4 and a half hours, and I’m still full…! πŸ˜‚

The whole family (except for me) at the table. πŸ˜€
This picture was taken at the same time as the picture above it, just from a different angle! πŸ˜‚

Thanks to my family for an awesome birthday!!!!! It was a blast!

And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! πŸ˜‚ (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ Like how am I thought old?! πŸ‘΅πŸ» I don’t feel that old… Maybe that’s because I haven’t had my actual birthday yet! 🀣 Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling different. XD Lol!!

Well, I’m signing off for now! Hope y’all are having a great day, aaaaand… happy birthday to me. 😜 πŸ˜‚ 😁 πŸ‘‹

Love,

Rosy

We all enjoyed our time very much! πŸ˜€ And we got very sunburned! 😜 πŸ˜‚ (Again, worth it!) I’m very glad that we were able to go. πŸ™‚

But as for right now…. Here are some pictures of our time at family camp with the amazing Heritage Baptist Church! (Get ready, cause I have A LOT of pictures here!) XD

Trip Recap, Part One: Kansas

Standard

Hey everyone! In September, our family went on a 3 week trip to Kansas, Colorado and Arizona. We had an amazing time! That’s also why I haven’t posted much at all for the last while… I hope to pick up on that, now that we’re home. πŸ˜€

Anyways, I want to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip! This post will have some pictures from Kansas, and the next post will have pictures from family camp in Arizona. πŸ˜€


On our first day, we drove all the way from Mexico to Kansas – almost 1,000 miles! It took us about 20 hours. XD We drove from 3:00 in the morning, to around 12:00 at night!

2018 vs. 2020! (One of my favorite pictures from the trip!) πŸ˜€

We spent an awesome 2 days with the Cook family in Kansas! (Thank you, Cooks, for your hospitality! It was a blast! )

Stay tuned for more pictures of the rest of the trip soon! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜„

An Explosive Day

Standard
An Explosive Day

Hey everyone! Today I have a story to tell… XD πŸ˜€

So I had something crazy happen to me…

Before I start this story, you must know that we have a gas oven. So, to light the oven, we have to turn on the gas, and then push a button to light the spark, and voila. Ok, now back to the story.

It all began one Saturday afternoon. I was just walking around, minding my own business. I walked into the kitchen to heat something up. I turned on the gas, but when I lit the spark…..

BAMMMM!!!!

One of the kids had turned the gas on, and left it. Quite a bit of gas had leaked into the air, so when I lit the spark, it exploded.

It was so loud, my ears were ringing, and it gave me headache. Kids came running from all over the house, and outside to see what happened.

The rest of the family said that they could feel the air shake in other rooms! A door several rooms away was blown open with a bang!

As for me, I was thrown across the kitchen (Which wasn’t very far. only a couple of feet XD), and the pressure hit my leg, where it ached for quite a while. I was quite shaken up.

As for the oven….. Well, the door flew open, and the sides of the oven were blown out. Pieces of the insulation were blown everywhere. Poor thing… XD

I am very thankful that it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, had the gas ben left on longer. It was quite an experience, lol.

Well, at least it’s a fun story to tell… πŸ˜‚
