Our Trip to AZ!

Standard

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still alive over here… XD Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I guess I just realized that (believe it or not…) there are more important things in life than blogging. (Surprise!) Ok, well I guess I already knew that, but… Lol.ย Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last week we traveled to Arizona to visit our friends and home church there. It was probably one of my favorite trips to AZ since we moved to Mexico! It was great to see all of our friends there again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. โค

Dad, some of my siblings and I, sang For the Sake of His Name at church. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also on this trip we took Maggie back to her home in AZ. We miss her a lot already, lol! Now Maggie’s cousin, Anna, is staying with us for a few weeks! We are having quite a bit of fun with her!! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

I hope everyone is having a great day!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Birthday, Baptism, and Border Trip. (And More!)

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a big long post for you today, so beware. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

Hey, I just realized I could call this post The Three B’s for short… XD ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜œ

Anyway…! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

We had a really busy and exciting two weeks during my media fast. One of the first things that happened was the birthday party of my friend, Karen. She turned 15. In Mexico, when a girl turns 15 she’s basically considered an adult and eligible for marriage. (Wow, that’s crazy isn’t it??? I can’t even imagine… XD) Anyway, she asked me to take pictures at the party for her. Which I did, and enjoyed doing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are a few of them… ๐Ÿ™‚

There was also a piรฑata for the kids, although the adults joined in some too. I did not get any good picture of that since it was night, but here’s something from my Dad’s phone… Terrible picture, but it’ll do… ๐Ÿ˜‰

20190427_210456


And, in other, really exciting news, we had our first baptism at the church we’re planting here in Mexico!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a man named Alejandro (Alexander), and it’s been so awesome to see God working in his, and his wife’s, life. Praise the Lord!!! He is so good.

Here’s a slideshow I put together with the pictures I took during church last Sunday, the Baptism, and the meal afterwards. (Not to mention the water fight that was bound to happen when you have kids and young adults standing around with nothing much else to do… XD ) It was a great time. ๐Ÿ˜€


The day before yesterday my Dad, Philip, Bekah and I took a trip up to the El Paso, Texas to get our mail, and get some supplies. This time we planned on making it there and back in one day! ๐Ÿ˜€ Usually we have to stay a night in a hotel.

We got up at 3:00 and left at 3:30 am. We drove for a few hours until we got to a small town to get breakfast. We got food for all four of us, for the equivalent of $3.50 US dollars. We had to laugh about how much food for us all would have costed in the States, and how different Mexico and the States are from eachother! XD

We reached the border by around… 9:00 am I think. We crossed uneventfully, and drove to El Paso which was nearby the border crossing. We couldn’t go to Costco yet, since it opens at ten, so we went to Goodwill, where we bought… Nothing! Then we went to Savers, where we bought… Nothing! XD ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ;P After that, we went to Walmart, and a few other places. We ate lunch at Costco. Well, actually we got lunch at Costco, brought it to the car and ate it there! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then we did a few other things, including picking up our mail, then heading across the border again. We were home by 9:30 that night! We were so tired… XD

Philip and I, while Dad and Bekah were in an auto parts store… And Dad left his phone. So… XD

20190507_102047


And, yeah… I think that was most of the big things that happened… At least that I can think of. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In other random news….

I read…

What, you don’t like to guess?

Ok, fine. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

We’re going… SOUTH!!! YES! To Alabama and Georgia… I am so excited!!! It’s mainly for a family reunion, since my Mom has lots of family there. We’re also going to get to see some friends for the first time. (I’m especially excited to finally get to meet my friend, Amie, from Crazy A!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Anyway, it’s still almost a month until we leave. I think we leave on the 3rd or 4th of June… Something like that. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are all waaay excited!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Before I leave, here is a really good quote I found recently. It really made me think.

Life Update!!

Standard

It’s time for another update on our lives! ๐Ÿ˜€ I would normally wait until the end of April, but since I’m not gonna be here then… Well, I’ll explain in a later post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, here are some of the recent event at our house. ๐Ÿ™‚

A visit from our Grandparents

Last week my Dad’s parent’s, from Colorado, came over to our house for a few days. It was a very good time, and it was great to see them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quotes from siblings

Philip (5): In 100 billion years, will I be dead?

Susy (4): I’m on a diet. I can only eat the things mom and dad serve me!


We also had friends over last week from Canada, the Friesons. We had a really amazing few hours with them! It was awesome to speak with kids my own age in English for a change…! XD ๐Ÿ˜€ ;P (There is a girl named Rosy, and whenever someone calls her or my name, we both turn around. It’s awesome!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค )

We had a great time time of fellowship with them, singing hymns and reading the Word together. All the kids went outside and played Nazis and Jews. It was awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€

Other than that, the only thing that has happened since last Sunday especially, is that we have all gotten sick… like, sick. ๐Ÿค’๐Ÿคงย Like, miserable in bed sick… Like, I-felt-like-my-head-was-about-to-explode sick… ๐Ÿ˜ญย Anyway, we are recovering now, thankfully! At least I can sing now. Well, kinda.ย I won’t mention that I probably sound like a chocking goose…ย  Singing was one of the things I missed most, being sink. I couldn’t even talk clearly… XD I can now though, so. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Last few Days at the Marr House

Standard

If any of you have been wondering why I haven’t been posting much, or have been really slow at answering emails, chats, and commenting on y’all’s blogs, I have a good excuse, okay! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›

So last week, we had a group come to our house for a week from Coahuila, another state in Mexico. They came from my grandparent’s church. (Who are also missionaries in Mexico. They came too ๐Ÿ™‚ ) We had a blessed time with them, and it was a blast!

53522432_10157231609367052_7831899982679506944_n

The group while on their way to our house. (The four people in the middle are my Grandpa and Grandma, and my Aunt and Uncle.)

They got here on Thursday night of last week, and left super early this morning. I must say, the house seems so quiet and empty without them. Even though we still have a family of 11 here… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

My Aunt Abigail, with two of the girls who came.

 

While they were here, we held our very first church service in the brand new building! ๐Ÿ˜€ It wasn’t totally finished as there still was no door, but at least we had walls! Hopefully they will put in the walls today before Wednesday night church. (They were supposed to do it yesterday, but they never showed up! Lol.)

On the last day they were here, Grandma found a picture of her, all of us children (Except James, who was not yet born!), and Abigail. So she wanted to recreate the picture, and put them together!

The first picture is four years ago, and the second was yesterday evening. ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone looks so much older! Especially Susy, who is on the far left, on Andy’s lap.

So, as many of you guys know, my family and I moved to Mexico as missionaries, a little over 3 years ago now. (It’s so hard to believe it’s bee that long now!!!)

So, last Sunday was our church’s third year of meeting together! It’s so hard to believe it’s been that long! The Lord has been so good all these years. ๐Ÿ™‚ Praise God! ๐Ÿ˜€

This is what our first year anniversary picture looked like.


Also, in other church news… We’re building a new church building!!! Right on our property! Well, we have been meeting on our property for a while now, in a barn we fixed up. But it’s gotten small, or rather, we’ve gotten large. So we’re building another!

The corner of our yard has gone from this…

A Condensed version of the Month of April

Hi everyone! April has been busy, fun and… Hmm, what else? Musical!!! My sister Gracie and I made four whole song videos all of which will probably make their way here, one by one eventually. There was several beautiful sunsets, and I tookย tons of silhouettes with my siblings. But those will be in another post by themselves later (cuz there are so many of them, lol!)

Well, thatโ€™s about it for this month. We also have a stray kitten that our dog Velvet brought in from somewhere. My siblings are having a blast taking care of it.

Oh, and also, I made a video for family camp! I didn’t get it done until just now, so thatโ€™s why I didn’t post it her until now. Here it is!

 

Well, until next time!

A Condensed version of the Month of February

Hi everybody! Can you believe itโ€™s already March?! I mean, we just celebrated New Years! Even though itโ€™s a bit late, here is a simple overview of some of what went on in the Marr family household this last month.

 

Well, probably the main event of this month was the hot dog and Marshmallow roast we did at church a few weeks ago. This is the second time we have done it, but last time, it was to dark to get good pictures. I did this time though, thankfully.

Lucia accidentally set her marshmallow on fire, causing many laughs.

Then, he had a brilliant idea! However, the other team wasnโ€™t too enthusiastic…

 

Well, thatโ€™s about all of the important stuff.

What did you do during the month of February? Are you excited about March?

A trip to the mountains-Nochachi

At this moment, I am sitting at the computer, with a baby in an ergo on my back. Today is Sunday, 10:00 a.m. This afternoon, we will be going to church, a 4:00.

Until Next Time!!
