What I’ve Been Doing Lately…

Lately, we have been pretty busy (as always!) Freezer meals, company, organizing, cleaning… 😀

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. 🙂

2019-11-05-5

Birthdays

We have three birthdays in November birthdays! Gracie turned 15 on the 10th, Philip turned 6 on the 11th, and I’m going to turn 16 on the 22nd! 🙂

For Gracie’s birthday, I made her some healthy, homemade Oreos. (YUM.) Man, that was SO much fun, guys! I made several different flavors… Normal, peppermint, lemon, strawberry, chocolate, peanut butter, birthday cake, caramel… 😄 They were super yummy (I barely managed not to eat all of them) and pretty, and so much fun to make!

Gracie and I get to be the same age for a few days! 😀

Before and after…

2019-11-12-1

I really like it! 🙂

Painting

I’ve started really getting into acrylic painting in the last few weeks. It’s so much fun!!! I only had a tiny bit of dollar store paint (which I mostly finished), but I want to order some more from Amazon or something. 🙂

My first painting:

I LOVE how this turned out!! ❤

My second painting:

My third painting: 

I did this one of a cute, tiny canvas my friend, Susie, gave me as an early birthday present. 🙂

 

My fourth, and last painting (So far!): 

2019-11-12-7

I painted it on a piece of cardboard because I didn’t have any canvas… XD

2019-11-12-8

This one didn’t turn out quite as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! 😀 It’s very Fall-y. 😉

Other Stuff

  • I finally got rid of my old school book collection… XD It took me two years collect all those… LOL!

2019-11-12-3

Little Brother Photoshoot

Standard

Hey guys! So, I know I haven’t done very many photography posts lately, but that’s because I honestly haven’t been taking very many pictures for a while. It’s because I’ve had… well, what you might call the photographers’ version of Writer’s Block. So Photographer’s Block I guess. XD um, is that a real thing? xD It should be.

Anyway, thankfully I’m getting over that now. So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my adorable little brother James, and I love how it turned out! He is THE cutest, bestest, sweetest little bro anyone could ask for. ❤ ❤

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! ❤

James, 2019, 8

Aww!

James, 2019, 15

I love his face in this one!

James, August 19, 2

He was laughing at his brother Philip, who was in the tree. 😉

James, 2019, 9

Aaaaah, his blue eyes!!!!

Bonus picture:

So, during the photoshoot, I asked James to reach up into the apple tree, and pretend he was picking an apple. I did that, and Philip said, “Take a picture of me doing that!” So he reached up into the tree to pretend to pick an apple, but the apple accidentally came down in his hand. We weren’t technically supposed to pick any apple yet since they weren’t ripe, and this was his face. XD XD

IMG_2050

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. ❤ So are all my siblings. 😉 ❤

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. 😉 I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! 🙂

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday, James!

Yesterday was the birthday of my youngest brother, James! I can’t believe my little boy is three now! 😮 😳😍 He’s still supposed to be a baby! I asked him not to grow up, but he didn’t listen to me… Oh well. 😂

James Jonathan Marr was born on July 17, 2016… 🙂

Sibling Quotes

Standard

pizap.com15587556357691

Note: Please excuse the terribly uncreative title… Oh well. My brain’s not working tonight. XD 

Ok, we all know that kids can say the funniest things sometimes… I am convinced that my siblings are the best at making me laugh. XD 😀 ❤

I’ve compiled a few of my favorite funny quotes from my siblings. Enjoy!!


Philip (5): “Rosy, you are big. You are too big to live in a sprinkle.”

Oookay…. Whoa, that was random! 😂🤣😂

Andy (10), while eating ice cream: “Oh, I just got freezer burn!” 

He meant brain freeze! LOL! XD 

Me: “James, are you as cowboy?”

James (2): “Yeah! Mooooooo!!!”

Not sure he knows exactly what what a cowboy is yet… 😂🤔 

Philip (5): “Rosy, I wish you weren’t my sister.”

Me:  😲😲😲”Oh! Why?”

Philip: “Because I really want to marry you, and I can’t marry my sister!”

This one was my favorite!!!!!!!😂 Talk about a relived big sister… (Wait, was that my first marriage proposal???) 🤣

Philip, after I opened a jar lid for him: “You are the strongest lady I ever met!”

Wow! Is that a compliment? I think it is… 🤔😁😆

Friend: “Who of your siblings do you think speaks the best at speaking Spanish?”

Gracie: “I don’t want to brag, so go ask my dad!”

Haha! Even that was a couple years ago, it took a little bit of convincing to let me add that one… But she let me! 😁😂

Susy (4), trying to sing Jesus Loves Me: “Jesus loves me, this he knows, and I know the Bible knows!”

Lol, maybe we should work on that with her a bit… 😂🤔🙃🎶


Ok, I know I had more quotes, but I forgot some of them… Consequences of storing them in my brain, instead of one paper. I’ll probably remember as soon as I click post post on this. So, I might post another one of these sometime. 😉

Because He lives,

Rosy

p.s. Oh, and y’all!!! The sunset was sooo pretty tonight!!!! 😀 ❤

I realized that I haven’t posted much photography lately, sooo… I’ve decided to fix that! 😛 😀

So, for starters, my uncle gave my a camera that’s so much better than my old one! (Thanks sooo much Timothy! 😀 ) And he taught me how to use it, and I’ve been totally loving it! 😀 😉

Snowball and the Missing Apple Blog Tour: Interview with Amie! (+A Giveaway!!!)

Screen Shot 2019-02-07 at 2.34.55 PM

 

Hey everyone!!! Today I’m super, duper excited to be here with my friend  Amie ,from Crazy A!


About the Author:

IMG_9676

Amie is a wild, crazy writer who is either daydreaming or talking a hundred miles an hour.  When she is not doing those two things, she is probably reading or jamming on one of the four instruments she plays.  Writing is her overwhelming passion, but she is also passionate about horses, music, acting, photography, blogging, and living life to glorify her Creator and Lord.  She is the second oldest of seven children and enjoys being dramatic with her four sisters. Whether it is in Amie’s writing or in her words, she enjoys making people laughing.

About the Book:

DSC_0216

Snowball loves apples.  When his apple goes missing, he knows that he must find who took it.  A charming children’s book with funny pictures, an engaging message, and animals.  Perfect for early readers or to read aloud to your 2-5 year old.


 

Guys, does that not look like the cutest book EVER?!?!? Seriously, it’s adorable!!! 😀

Anyway, I have had the great privilege of interviewing Amie about her book. Here we go!

 

So Amie, when did you start writing, and why?

I started actually writing at eight, though I’ve always been coming up with stories and trying to write them down.  When I was little I would scribble things in a notebook and tell my older brother they were a story. Then when he told me I didn’t write words, I tried to write wordless picture books…But finally, I learned how to spell.  I didn’t begin to write seriously until I was twelve, and I started then to help me process and avoid a hard time of my life.

 

Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what music do you listen to the most?

I do.  Throughout writing this book, I mostly listened to Southern Raised, Lawson Bates, and the Bontrager Family Singers.
What is your favorite childhood book?

Ooh, good questions!  I loved “The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales” by Usborne.  I think that started my love for farming. I also liked Max Lucado’s “Oak Inside the Acorn.”

 

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever dealt with writer’s block, though I have been discouraged a few times.  Try walking away from a project, and if that doesn’t work, try pressing on. Just write words, and make them into a story.
What would you say to a new writer, who’s struggling?

*clears throat* Listen, it’s hard now, just like after starting to run, you’ll be sore, but after the soreness passes, it’s way worth the work.  Just keep pressing on, and don’t look back.
How often do you write?

I write every day, and multiple times a day.

 
What time of day do you like write?

Mostly early in the morning, mid day, and in the evening.  Or in other words, when I can.
Which of the Seven Wonders of the world do you want to visit the most?

The Pyramid, definitely.

 

Why did you publish this book?

Because I thought it would be fun to let other children read the story my siblings love.  And I’m looking forward to reviews. 😀

 

Do you plan to publish more books in the future?

Lord willing, I do.

 

Bonus Question: What is your personal opinion on blue cheese?

BLAH.  You might love blue cheese, but you can keep it, and PLEASE keep the blue cheese dressing away from the ranch.  They look slightly similar, and might be confused.

 

Thanks for interviewing me, Rosy!

Thank YOU, Amie! And apparently, we share opinions on blue cheese. Yuck… 😛 XD


Oh, one last thing….. THERE’S A GIVEAWAY Y’ALL!!!!! Yay!

Home Alone// Jesus Loves Me

Home Alone// Jesus Loves Me

This weekend most of the family went to El Paso, Texas, mainly to drop Mom and Lizzie off at the airport, as they are heading to Kansas. They left early yesterday morning. (Early, like, 4:00 a.m. or something! 😮 ) I am staying home with Gracie, Bekah and Ruthie. The rest of the family should be back later this afternoon. 🙃

While they’re gone, Gracie and I are taking advantage of the quiet and making as many song videos as we possibly can for our blog, The Delightful Dueters. 😄 Here’s one we did with Bekah and Ruthie. I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out. They did a great job! 😁 😉

Recent and Not-So-Recent Art

A friend requested that I do a post about my drawings, and I was kind of inspired to actually do it when I saw Amie’s post, here. So, consequently, you are going to be forced  to get to see some of my recent, and not-so-recent drawings! 😀

We’ll start with my not-so-recent drawings. These were done several years ago, back when we lived in Arizona.

p1030892

The pilgrims. I think… 😉

p1030894

A dolphin!

p1030899.jpg

This boy is either praying… or he really does not like whatever is in his bowl.

And then I improved a bit… (These are mostly after we moved to Mexico three years ago.)

p1030896.jpg

This one was supposed to be my dad preaching. It doesn’t really look much like him, lol…

p1030895

And it was only recently that I got serious about drawing… Here is some of my most recent art. 🙂

p1030886

An interesting looking chipmunk

p1030884

A praying mantis

p1030887

Some random hand lettering I did. I really want to practice and get better at this!

p1030888

This was going to be a bald eagle… But it turned out to be a seagull instead, lol!

These last three are all my favorites!!! 😀

p1030885

A ship. (Since you probably couldn’t tell… 😛 )

p1030890

I love this one! 😀 ❤ 

Last, but not least, is my so-far, absolute favorite! It’s still a WIP though. 🙂 I’m really loving how this is turning out! Besides, it’s horses!!! 😀

p1030900

p1030901

Aaaaand, there you have it!

Have a great rest of the day! (Or if you live in Australia, night!) 😀
