James’ Birthday!!!

Standard

Yesterday was my brother, James’, 4th birthday! ๐Ÿ˜€

He is such a precious boy, and I love him so much!! โค It’s so hard to believe it’s been 4 years since he was born.

The dessert he picked was chocolate chip cookies and ice cream! ๐Ÿ˜‹

March Recap

Standard

March was a long month… A lot of crazy stuff happened, as I’m sure you know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It wasn’t a bad month though. A lot of good things happened too! And I haven’t been bored even the tiniest little bit either…ย  XD

when-you-find-out-your-nomal-daily-lifestyle-is-called-quarantine-meme

Yup. XDย 

But yeah, boredom isn’t a thing for me. Life has been mostly normal for me personally, except for church. (So sad!!!)

2020-04-06 (1)

Gracie and I have a goal to walk 100 miles this Spring! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

2020-04-06 (3)

My lil’ buddy โค โค โคย 

James can do more pushups than I can, lol XDย 

2020-04-06

Yes, there’s still TP at the store here, lol… XDย 

 

2020-04-06

Mom had her 40th birthday this month! ๐Ÿ˜€

I organized bookshelves a couple days ago… Whew, that was quite a job! Lol! ;Pย 

I have also been doing a lot of art lately, and started learning to draw people, which has been lots of fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

2020-04-06 (1)

I drew this picture of my friend, Kyra! ๐Ÿ˜€

I also painted my sketchbook cover, and even though it could be better, I love how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

Sketchbook

Another exciting thing that happened this month was our church’s 4th anniversary! Well, technically it was last month, but we celebrated it this month, right before the quarantine started. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is our church picture (minus a couple families). ๐Ÿ˜‰

2020-04-06 (4)

So yeah. It’s been a pretty good month for me, despite all the crazy stuff that’s been going on. ๐Ÿ˜€

And, I shall end this post, with this very deep and thought-provoking meme. (JK) XD

2020-04-06 (7)

Have fun at home, ya’ll!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

~Rosy

P.S. I just realized I should do a post with the ultimate list of boredom busters and stuff. I never truly get bored, but I always love reading those anyway and trying out the ideas. What do y’all think? ๐Ÿ™‚ย

What I’ve Been Doing Lately…

Standard

Lately, we have been pretty busy (as always!) Freezer meals, company, organizing, cleaning… ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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…ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

2019-11-12-9

Haircut

Last week I suddenly got this urge to cut my hair. I wanted something different! XD

Before and after…

2019-11-12-1

I really like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

My first painting:

2019-09-09

I LOVE how this turned out!! โค

My second painting:ย 

2019-10-12

I did this one of a cute, tiny canvas my friend, Susie, gave me as an early birthday present. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

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

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 outย quiteย as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s very Fall-y. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

  • James is my babyyy!! *massive heart eyes* (He’s growing about way too fast. XD ) Lol.
  • We have been having fun with Anna Bagwell (Maggie’s cousin). Here she is playing a game with some of the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

2019-11-12-10

  • Singing and playing guitar with visitors.

So yeah. There’s a little update for ya! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you enjoyed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I’d better go and help get the house ready for company tonight.. ๐Ÿ˜€

Let’s Talk!

How has your last few months been? Which painting was you favorite? What flavor of Oreos do you think would be you favorite?

 

 

Life Update!

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on our life, so I decided it was time for one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Quite a bit has happened the last several months. And a lot of good things, and a lot of hard things too. But God has been faithful through it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

So… One cool/happy thing going on right now, is that our friend, Maggie Cyr, came all the way from Arizona to stay with us for about a month! We are very much enjoying our time with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been a big blessing having her, and we’ve had a lot of fun with her! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  โค

The weather has been amazing where we live in Mexico. Lots of rain, clouds, thunder…. It’s all awesome! (Except for the fact the electricity pretty much always goes out every time it rains… Which is about every day during these months… XD )

I went on a nature walk with my camera the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

Mom reading to some of the kids. (Susy’s face, lol! XD )

Other than that, I have…

Played lots of guitar and piano…

Read lots of books, including The Hiding Place, and several books by Elisabeth Elliot…

Played piano at church for the first time – that was very fun!

Watched The Widow’s Might with Maggie…

Sang a lot with Maggie, Gracie and Lizzie… ๐Ÿ˜€

And lots more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh, and one more thing that’s happening right now, is that we are finally replacing our bookshelf. It was FALLING. APART. Literally. Like, I can’t tell you how any time we nailed those shelves up when they fell a few times a week… XD So yeah, we are very happy (to say the least!) about the new ones. I won’t go into how hard it was to actually get the bookshelf standing upright because it was slightly too tall, and our ceiling is shorter in some spots, and higher in others… Lol! XD Oh, and we currently have books stacked all over the living room still… XD

2019-09-19 (9)

The new bookshelf. ๐Ÿ™‚ We haven’t finished putting the books back on the shelves, lol!

So yeah, that’s a bit of what’s been going on lately. ๐Ÿ™‚ (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

I wanted to end this post with this quote my grandma sent me. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Update From the Past Month

Standard

So, the last few weeks have been… Hard. And sad, and good, and fun, and rough, and sweet, and awful, and happy, and terrible… Bitter and sweet. And yeah. That pretty much explains it.

Last week we went to Pheonix, Arizona to attend the unexpected funeral of our little friend, Joshua Young. โค๏ธย Please pray for his family during this time of loss. ๐Ÿ˜”ย โค๏ธย Here’s a song that has been an encouragement to me over the last few days. Actually, here’s two!

I got to visit quite a few friends in Arizona last week! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Singing! โค (Actually, we wereย singing, but the sight of a camera sent us laughing…) XD

2019-07-09 (7)

More singing<3

And in other news family news… We got sick, bought a keyboard and spent 2 days in the car together. (During which, we passed the time by listening to Jonothan Park, and Lamplighter Theatre!)

Also, the peaches on our peach tree are starting to get ripe, which I’m excited about because they are SO. GOOD. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

pizap.com15629759232361

Yuuum!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

So, a few weeks ago we went to the graduation party of someone we know. There was a lot of visiting and food, and all of us ladies and girls spent a lot of time talking, laughing and watching some of the men and boys playing soccer. It was a very enjoyable time. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the meal, they cooked up the pig. (The one you see down below.) Hopefully y’all aren’tย tooย grossed out by this! ;P While we were eating, we sat and watched our food’s head dangling in front of us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dad got up and took a selfie with his friend, Elย Cochi. (The Pig)

Well, I should probably head to bed now… It’s almost 10:00 at night here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I will post this tomorrow though. I’ll probably be able to check for typos and stuff better after I get some sleep… XD ๐Ÿ™‚

Lizzie and a friend’s dog.

We spent a looong time in the car… Like, 6 days worth of driving… Ugh! To pass the time, we listened to a lot of Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and sermons by Israel Wayne. ๐Ÿ™‚ So it wasn’t so bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Weย didย have a few really carsick kids though… XD

Y’all. I LOVED the South. It was sooo pretty, and I loved the people, the accent (lol!), the trees… And guys, the GREENNESS!!! ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿƒย It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks.ย Death to all ticks. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for the ticks, I probably would have moved there. Ok, maybe not quite… ;P XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed these pictures! Keep on the look out for a video about the trip, where you can see all you just saw, and lot’s more! ๐Ÿ™‚ And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’tย waitย to see it!! :D๐Ÿ˜

Sibling Quotes

Standard

pizap.com15587556357691

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

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

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! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

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

He meant brain freeze! LOL! XDย 

Me: “James, are you as cowboy?”

James (2): “Yeah! Mooooooo!!!”

Not sure he knows exactly what what a cowboy is yet… ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”ย 

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

Me:ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ”Oh! Why?”

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

This one was my favorite!!!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚ย Talk about a relived big sister… (Wait, was that my first marriage proposal???) ๐Ÿคฃ

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… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜†

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! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

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… ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™ƒ๐ŸŽถ


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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Because He lives,
