Happy Thanksgiving! (And Happy Birthday to Me…!)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful (and thankful) day. 😉

Some of the things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving are: (not in any particular order)

  • God’s love
  • My family
  • My friends
  • This blog, and all my blog followers
  • Music
  • God’s Word
  • Food 
  • Books
  • A warm fire
  • And much, much more!!

A few days ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving with friends (two families) who we haven’t seen since, well, last Thanksgiving. We had a great time with them! 😀

The little guys… Aren’t they cute?! ❤

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18


And also, a few days ago (on the 22) I turned 16! Thanks so much to everyone who help make my birthday special! 🙂 ❤

What are some things you are grateful for? What did your family do for Thanksgiving? 

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. Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! 😀 😉

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. 🙂 I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. ❤

Singing at Chruch

Dad, some of my siblings and I, sang For the Sake of His Name at church. 🙂

So yeah, this trip was pretty much a blast. 😉 It was amazing!!! Thank you so much to everyone who showed hospitality to us while we were there. It meant a lot! 😀 ❤

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!! 🙂 ❤

I hope everyone is having a great day!! 😀

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. 🙂 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. 🙂 ❤

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. 🙂

It has been a big blessing having her, and we’ve had a lot of fun with her! 🙂  ❤

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. 🙂 Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! 😮 )

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… 😀

And lots more… 😉

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. 🙂 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. 🙂 (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

I wanted to end this post with this quote my grandma sent me. 🙂 ❤

Time with a Friend!

Standard

Ok, I know y’all are probably really tired of hearing about our trip… After all, that’s what my last few posts have been about… XD So, I promise, this will be the last one! Probably. ;P 😂

Anyway, I wanted to share some pictures AND A VIDEO!! Ahem, about our visit with Amie (From Crazy A) and her family. 🙂 🙃

*10 minutes later*

Ooookay, the pictures are refusing to upload… The internet’s working pretty bad here. Oh well, I’ll keep trying. 😉

*A few hours later*

Whew! They’re all loaded! Man, that took a long time! XD Anyway, here they are! 😁Picture credits go to my sis, Gracie. 😀

This one definitely has an interesting perspective. I like it! Amie’s eyes are sooo pretty… 😀

Ok, that’s all the pictures! Now for the video… It turned out so good! Amie did a great job making it! 😀 Hope you enjoy!! 🙂

We all had an awesome time with Amie and her family. Our families are so similar, and we had a blast!! 😀 Thank you for making our time with y’all so enjoyable Amie!! 😀 Love you! ❤

~Rosy 🌹

p.s. Haha, I found this so funny! XD Also, don’t worry, you’re not an idiot, even if it says you are… It just doesn’t know! 😉  Oh, and I totally fell for it! 😂😂😂35351c1f2b694546fb069cb25f3e5e84

 

We’re Back!!!

Standard

Hey everyone! We’re finally back from our trip!! 😀 (In case you don’t know, our family went on a two week trip to Alabama for a family reunion. We also went to Georgia to visit several friends. We had a great time!!) 😀

Here are some pictures from our trip. 🙂 (Btw, I vlogged (video blogged) about the trip too, so ya’ll will get to see that video soon! 😀 )

We got the see the ocean for the first time on our way home! It was so beautiful! 😀 ❤

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. 🙂 So it wasn’t so bad. 😉 We did 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!!! 🌳🌲🍃 It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks. 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! 🙂 And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’t wait to see it!! :D😁

See you soon! (Figuratively speaking.) 😉

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

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a big long post for you today, so beware. 😉 XD

Hey, I just realized I could call this post The Three B’s for short… XD 😂🤣😜

Anyway…! 🙃

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! 😉 😀

Here are a few of them… 🙂

I LOVE this picture!!! 😀 ❤ The girl’s names are Maria and Rebekah.

My friend, Karen, and I. ❤

There was also a piñata 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… 😉

20190427_210456


And, in other, really exciting news, we had our first baptism at the church we’re planting here in Mexico!! 😀 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. 😀


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! 😀 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 😦 ;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! 😉 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. 😉

In other random news….

I read…

This book:

⬇︎Summer of Suspense by C.R. Hedgcock. this book was really good! I think  would rate it… 4 or 4 1/2 stars… 😉 I would definitely recommend this one!

2019-05-10 (2)

⬇︎This book: Joey by Jennifer Marshall Bleakley. 3 1/2 stars. 🙂

e26ad309-6083-44a2-8619-2b982c0e2caa

⬇︎This book: For One Moment by Christmas Carol Kauffman. guys. This book… 😫😭 Is so good… And sad… (Which is why I’m frowning in one of the pictures… ) Anyway, this is a great book. (One of the rare few that actually make me cry!) I would rate it 6 stars! 😁

Ohhhhh!!!!! There’s one thing I have to tell you guys!!! First you have to guess…

What, you don’t like to guess?

Ok, fine. 😉 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!!! 😀 ) Anyway, it’s still almost a month until we leave. I think we leave on the 3rd or 4th of June… Something like that. 🙂 We are all waaay excited!!! 😀

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

6b02511e389d233f07e25731b3bd3345

Sorry about such a long, packed post… Hope y’all like long posts, lol! XD 😉

p.s. this is so funny! XD

Have you read any of the books I mentioned in this post? What do you think about the quote? Do you like longer, or shorter posts the best? (Or medium sized???) 😉 

 

Life Update!!

Standard

It’s time for another update on our lives! 😀 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! 😉

Anyway, here are some of the recent event at our house. 🙂

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. 🙂

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 😀 ;P (There is a girl named Rosy, and whenever someone calls her or my name, we both turn around. It’s awesome!!! 😀 ❤ )

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! 😀

Visiting


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

20190418_105811

This was today. No, I was not taking pictures of my skirt…

Ending on a better note, here are pictures from our church a few Sundays ago. 🙂

My friends Karen, and I. Oh, and Andy. Apparently, he thought this picture needed him. xD

So, for the last several months I’ve been teaching my friend, Karen, school as there isn’t a school here for her to go to. Here mother is our maid, and comes to our house to help out with chore twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. So, on those days, Karen gets her lessons! Usually it’s just her I’m teaching, but sometimes  I have up to 4 or 5 students! Like on this particular day, when I had 4… 😁😂

p1030974

Did any of you see the lunar eclipse last night (Jan 20)? It was so cool! I didn’t any good pictures… for four reasons. 1) It was freezing and I was barefoot. 2) I was shivering and that kept shaking the camera. 3) The dogs kept jumping on me. And 4) I didn’t have a tripod. So anyways, here was the best I managed to get. 🙂

p1040013

Random Topic #6

This topic is actually a question.

Ok, so awhile back (Like, a looong while back), I did a committee story here on my blog. (If any of y’all are clueless, here’s the rules. Oh, and thanks to Anna W. for writing these up for me like, a looong while back! xD)

Here’s how it works. I post a story starter and y’all pick up where I left off by commenting with the next part of the story. Please write only a paragraph or two at a time and wait to add on again until someone else has. Try to keep the story moving along nicely, leave plenty of mystery and suspense for the next person to write about, and I will finish the story once it has come to some sort of ending. (Please make sure your writing is God honoring and appropriate for young ages. Please avoid all magic, gross violence, children being rebellious, and anything else that contradicts God’s Word.) You can read each new addition here in the comments, and then I will post the entire story, once it is complete, for everyone to read! Be creative and enjoy!!!

So, I was wondering what y’all thought about doing another one sometime in the near future? I think it would be so fun, and that we could write an awesome short story together! If I did one of these, do you think you would write for it? 🙂

Thy humble servant, 😉

Rosy 🌹

P.S. This was a bit of a long post, so here’s a cupcake for you if you read through it all! Also, if you comment below, I’ll give you a cookie… (Virtually of course, lol! 😉 😜)

Should I do more of these “Random posts”? Did you get to see the eclipse? Do you like goats? And what do you think about doing a committee story here on Rosy’s Writings?

 

Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Standard
Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Despite having such a strange title (Especially that last part…), this post isn’t as weird as it may seem. In fact, there really is a such thing as a water bottle hairstyle, although I’m not sure that that’s the official name for it…. Anyway lets get started, with the goat rides. Yesterday evening some friends came over to…

Um, wait, a minute, I think I hear Mom calling me. Wait right there! Don’t move a muscle, I’ll be back in a jiffy… or two… Don’t go away… *Voice fades away*


*5 minutes pass*

Ahem. Excuse me, but I don’t think that Rosy will be back any time soon, so I have decided to take over finish this blog post for her. In case you don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself. I am… well, I don’t really have a name right now. But anyways, I am Rosy’s trusty camera! Rosy has thought about naming me, but so far hasn’t found a name that hasn’t sounded totally cheesy or plain weird. I have a few ideas, but am unable to tell her, since I don’t speak English. I can type it, but not speak it. Yet. 

Anyway, let’s get on to the real reason why I’m here. Goat rides. I should know about this, since Rosy used me to photograph the whole, crazy event. I honestly cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would want to ride a goat. Humans. I’ll never understand them. 

It started when some friends of the Marr family who were traveling through, came over to visit, and spend to the night in their guest house. After visiting (In Spanish, a language which I can’t understand!) in the living room for an hour, all the children 11 and under went outside to play. This happened to include the riding of a goat. Ugh… Rosy apparently thought they were cute, because she grabbed me, and ran outside to take picture of them. That’s what she always does whenever she sees something cute. Believe me, I know.

p1030705

 Guys, she took waaaaaaay more pictures of that than what I just showed you! I’m only allowing you to see the very best ones, since most of them are embarrassing – they’re so blurry with such bad lighting, Ugh. She always does that to me…. :/ 

After she had finished with that, she was randomly inspired by the sunset, and ordered all of her siblings and their little Mexican friend to stand on the wall in front of it, to which they willingly and happily complied. (Wow, that was a long sentence! Especially for me!!!)

pizap.com15467446223861pizap.com15467449401591pizap.com15467448132251

I personally think these are the best picture that she took all day! 

After the company went to the guest house to get ready for bed, Rosy got inspired again  only this time it was for a hair style. She grabbed her sister, Bekah, and ran to another room with a brush, comb and strangely enough… And empty water bottle… Unfortunately  I can’t tell you what went on in there, since she left me in the living room alone. :/

However, when she came back, I was horrified and utterly shocked at what I saw. Behold:

p1030763 

Crazy? Yup. My thoughts exactly. She really liked it, her sister tolerated it, and everyone else thought it was hilarious. But she didn’t ask my opinion! 😦

After all that happened, the day was over, and they all got ready for bed. 

Uh oh. I think I hear Rosy coming back. Please, PLEASE do not tell her I was here!!! She might never forgive me for ruining her blog. (At least, that’s what she would think about it… I personally believe the world would be better if it were run by cameras.) But she’s coming, so I really need to go. YOU NEVER SAW ME!!!!!


 

Okay, guys, I’m finally back. I’m really, really sorry, but I don’t think that I’m going to have time to tell you what I was going to tell you about the goats and hairstyles and stuff… I’m so sorry! Maybe another day, okay?

Oh look! I just saw one my siblings run past wearing a towel on her head for a hat! She was so cute! I’ve got to get a picture of this! 😀

TTFN!
