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. 🙂

Hiya!!! 😀 Sooo, guess what. Gracie and I are FINALLY done with our Q&A video! It took a couple tries (that’s explained in the video), but the final video turned out great. 😀 We had an awesome time answering your questions! 🙂

Sorry about that fly that spent all its time buzzing around the camera, and the cars and planes that kept going by… XD Ohhh welll! ;P Lol.

Ok guys, enjoy the video!!! 😀


One last thing before I leave, I just wanted to share this encouraging quote with you guys.  🙂

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!

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

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

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!

Memes for Writers

Standard

Over the past years and months, I have accumulated quite a stash of random memes I have seen and liked.  Some of my favorites are the ones that have to do with writing and grammar. They can be pretty funny, and so relatable. 😂 Sometimes too relatable… 😳😜

Quick Update Before We Leave

Hi! So, I managed to find a bit of time to write a quick blog post today! I’ll have to try to do this quick though. 😉 We haven’t done almost any packing yet, so we’re doing that today. We’re leaving the day after tomorrow!!!! 😮 (For those of you who don’t know, we’re going to Alabama and Georgia.) We’re way excited!! 😀

Anyway, here’s a few pictures from the last few weeks! 🙂

We’ve been making a lot of snacks for the trip. 😀 In this case, it’s dehydrated cauliflower. Yum!!!

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!!!! 😀 ❤

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… 🙂

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

20190507_101927

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!

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.

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???) 😉 

 

The Committee Story is Finally Finished!

Standard

Ok guys, I grimace when I think of how long that took me. XD Sorry! I had so much going and this week and maybe I was procrastinating a little? Or a lot…. 

Anyways, today I decided I was just going to sit down and do it, and I finished it in one sitting. XD It’s not perfect, since it’d be impossible to make it all make total sense without rewriting whole big parts of the story… But that can be expected with a committee story. And I think it turned out really good! Quite different than I expected, but totally awesome!! 😀 🙂 

One thing I failed to do is come up with a name… If any of you think of something, I’d love to hear it!!

And, without farther ado….. Here it is!!


Written by Rosy, Parker, Amie, Liberty, Rosalyn, Elle, Clay, Kyra and Pearl!

Maybe I shouldn’t have ever tried coming home this way, Nick thought, peering around another alleyway. He prodded on, unaware of the real danger he was in. As his eyes took in the dark, foreboding neighborhood, he wished he was back on his normal route towards home. At the beginning it had just seemed like another adventure to him,  but now it was nearing sunset, and, even though he wouldn’t admit it to himself, he was lost.

Suddenly, an earsplitting scream pierced the air. Nick whipped around, but was not prepared for what he saw.

Instead of a person as he had expected, a large metal robot stood behind him, its huge metal claws lunging for him. Lunging for his throat.

Not knowing exactly what to do, Nick dropped to the ground, and the robot flew over him. He jumped to his feet and started running the other direction. Why would a robot be after him? Who had sent it?

A horrendous metallic sound from not far behind made Nick turn around in a hurry. To his surprise and initial relief, the robot lay on the ground in three pieces, smoke rising from the wreckage. The cruel claw lay a few feet away by itself, where it had been hurled in the unexpected crash. But all Nick could notice was the small, green slip of paper now exposed by the cracked open machine.

Slowly, Nick walked over, grasped the paper and pulled it close so he could see the small, messy handwriting written on it.

“Come and save me! Please! I’m in trouble.”

There was no name at the end. He was confused. Who needed rescued? Why would the note be in a … robot? And he still didn’t know where that robot came from.

Before he could do anything else, a scrawny guy came around the corner. He wore a huge grin on his face and before Nick could react, the stranger had bear-hugged him.

It took a while for Nick to process who this scrawny man in question was, but when the reality hit him, it hit him hard. This wiry, short man was his brother, who was six years older than Nick, at age 26. It had been a long time since Nick, and Dave, his brother, had seen each other, mostly because of their rocky childhood and the different paths the two had taken.

David, a small boy with a genius brain, had always been ostracized and eventually abused in their family of four. It wasn’t long before he had moved on to university when Nick, a tall, popular football player, was twelve. These eight years of separation had really taken their toll, and the brothers’ reunion was slightly awkward, but mostly wonderful.

But it didn’t take too long for this reunion to grind to a halt, when another ear-splitting scream rang out in the alley.

“Help, save me!” the young girl yelled before a robot that was holding her put its ugly claw up to her mouth.

Dave could sense that the past would have to be temporarily forgotten in light of this larger problem. The brothers shared a wordless glance–they knew they had to save this girl.

The two young men sprinted toward this metallic beast, and Nick utilized the best of his football techniques to tackle the robot and grab the girl. David rushed in and disarmed the robot, while Nick held it down, and the girl hid.

Now it was up to the three of them to find the robot’s operator, the girl’s home, and the police.

“Where do you live?” Nick asked, taking charge without a moment’s hesitation.

The girl’s green eyes bulged in fear and she made a coughing noise as she pointed to her mouth and shook her head vigorously.

“What is it?” Dave asked, tapping his boot on the ground. He’d never had patience for small children, as Nick well remembered. “Robot got your tongue?”

The girl nodded emphatically, pointed and shook her head even more vigorously, topping the act off with a strangled, choking noise as if prevented from speaking.

Why couldn’t she speak? Nick didn’t like the sick feeling he was getting in his stomach.

Can you speak?” He watched her closely, studying the way she kept choking, as if she was trying to talk.

“Wait,” Dave touched Nick’s arm. “I think she’s dumb.”

“Seriously, that’s not very nice to- oh!” Nick looked at the girl, sympathy rising quickly as tears started sliding down her cheeks. “Hey. Hey, don’t go crying like that. Everything’s going to be alright,” He bent down next to her and patted her shoulder. “Let’s get you out of here, okay?”

But something told him things weren’t going to be okay. At least, not until things got sorted out.

***************************

As they started on the way to the police station to get help, Dave and his brother talked over why they thought that the girl couldn’t talk. At each try, she shook her head “no”. As they tried to think of something, anything, she began to frantically gesture, trying to communicate something to them.

In desperation, the girl tore Nick’s phone out of it’s holster and pointed urgently at him to unlock it.

She pressed the Notes app and hastily began typing.

They made an interesting sight standing on the cracked sidewalk, not far from the forbidding alley in which so much had just happened.

The two bewildered men, slightly on edge, anxiously hovered over the small girl with blond pig tails that were streaked with dirt and bits of debris. She was frantically moved her thumbs over Nick’s iPhone as if her life depended on it. The girl couldn’t type fast enough for the worried brothers.

Nick had a knot growing in his stomach as he watched the message take shape, but when he read the entire thing and finally began to understand, a cold shudder passed over him as he grimaced at his brother.

“The robots were just a ploy,” she typed. “They were intended to divert attention from the real problem, the big crime.”

As the girl had discovered, completely on accident, there was a mastermind at this very moment plotting, perhaps even implementing, a mass destruction of all written knowledge in the city. His specific target was Bibles and anything containing reference to Jesus.

“Well, we certainly aren’t going to let him do that!” Dave folded his arms tightly over his chest and glared at the ground.

“But how can we-” he motioned at the three of them “-do anything? We could get the police, but more than likely they’d want to do their thing on their own. They wouldn’t want us tagging along to ‘help’.”

Silence reigned.

A moment later, they heard gun shot and shouts. Curiosity getting the best of him, Dave rushed forward, going to investigate.

“No!” Nick tackled him to the ground. He pushed his brother’s shoulder firmly to the ground while Dave wiggled under his weight. “You can’t just go check things out, you could be killed!

The girl pulled the phone back out, gestured at it, and after having it unlocked again, wrote that # 1 Nick was right. The man didn’t care about who he hurt in the distraction, and # 2, she had already been to the police. They didn’t care one bit about the book scheme, they just wanted to get rid of the robots.The distraction was working.

She stopped, seemed to think for a moment, then typed that she had only after the attack not been able to speak. She pointed to her mouth and indicated that she thought that some type of restrictive device had been put there. She thought again and then said that the robot had been waiting outside the police station, and had followed her, and that it seem that the police had been ignoring it. Could they be in on the crime, or were the robots invisible to them?

David reached into his pocket to get the keychain flashlight that he always kept there, in hopes of finding what was preventing her from speaking. As he did, he felt a piece of paper. In a flash, he remembered. Someone was in trouble. He pulled it out and handed it to Nick.
Nick turned to him and said, “Things are just too dangerous. We just can’t do anything about any of this.”

“Are you saying that we will leave the police to save the city, even though it seems like the problems are invisible to them?” David replied.

“That’s right, a few books, even a few people aren’t worth getting killed over. The Bible says that every life was worth it to Jesus to die for. Life is precious. But how about a compromise, let’s go back to the house and we’ll bring out some technology of our own!”

When they arrived back at the house, Nick instantly felt something was amiss. Not wanting to frighten the young girl anymore than she already was, he left David to escort her to the kitchen and he poked his head in the living room.

He didn’t know what he was expecting, but it wasn’t this.

Trying unsuccessfully to keep from sounding frantic or worried, he called for David. Because David was already nervous, he spun around, arms flailing. One made solid contact with the girl’s back. A small electric device came flying out of her mouth and clattered to the floor. Catching her before she fell to the hard tile, he sat down on the kitchen chair that was nearest him and pulled the girl onto his lap, asking if he had knocked the breath out of her. She weakly answered “yes” out loud!

Nick quickly went to the sink to get her a drink, while David tried to talk to her. After Nick gave the water to the girl, he picked up the device to investigate it. But as he was investigating it, a rock with a note attached came flying through the window! David quickly set the girl down on a chair, and ran to pick up the rock. Then, all of the sudden, he gasped!

“Nick, come here, you have to see this!” He exclaimed breathlessly. Nick came running, sat down next to the girl and impatiently exclaimed, “Well, what does it say?”

David read the note out loud, it said…

“94723” followed by a long string of squiggles.

“Code…” Nick breathed, reaching for it. He smoothed the grimy strip of paper, a can label, obviously hastily torn for the message.

“Can you make any sense of it?”

For several long seconds, there was no reply, then Nick looked up. The worry etched in his eyes slowly lit with hope.

“94723!” He exclaimed with delight. “Those are the first 5 numbers of the address for the library! That must be where they plan to attack next!”

“If that’s true” said David, “ Then we need to get there fast! But how? The library is like, four miles away!

“We can’t go there, it wouldn’t be safe. We have seen that this man is ruthless. For all we know, this message is a trap. We can’t get into a dangerous position, or nobody will save the books. Now, do you know what this is?” David asked.

“Why of course, it’s a remote control quadcopter. How is that going to help?” Nick replied.

“Well, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill drone. I have installed a fully rotational arm and live video feed. I will fly it in there through an upper window and lock the door from inside. That will give us time to get some of the slower equipment there. This is going to be a tough flight, and I haven’t even tested the arm yet.”

“Let’s do it!” Nick said.

Meanwhile, in another part of the city, a evil looking young man was sitting in a private office at the top story of a skyscraper. Three of the four walls were completely covered with computer monitors, and with graphs and charts giving him the information on how his programs were running. He sat back in his chair and spun around and around, taking in the view before he rolled the chair over to a desk and started typing.

“Let’s see here, everything is going fine, except for those two pesky flies, so to speak, that keep destroying my robots. I only have 5 left! And the library is locked. What will I do? Wait, do I catch a small hint of a remote control signal? Computer, enable spectrum analysis!”

“Enabled.”

A new graph filed on of the few previously vacant screens.

“Looks like my “flies” are flying some equipment. Well computer, override signal.


************


“Ah, just what we wanted!” David said.

“You wanted to crash your drone ?” Nick replied.

“No, but our book-destroyer has given us his address. Computer! Active geometrical radio signal trace.”

The mission had started: mission save the books: code name Pizza Box. Well, that might have been a temporary code name. The plan? Stop the bad guys. But other than that, they had no idea.

David took out a small device from the drawer, about the same size as a drinking glass. “We need to get this into his building, as close to his floor as possible.” He said.

“What is it?” Nick asked.

“It is sort of an electronic bomb. It won’t explode, rather it will destroy all electronic equipment within about a thousand foot radius. It removes all programming from them, rendering them useless.”

“Wow, that must be complicated to make.”

“Actually, it is the simplest thing in this room. Now, what we need to do is get it in there. I can’t use any remote controlled things because he would pick up on the signal I will go in myself. Once I have it detonated, you get the then-to-be undistracted policemen in to arrest him.”

“David, why are you willing to put your life in danger? You have been warning me about how dangerous this is for a long time, and yet you are intentionally putting yourself in harms way? Why?”

“Jesus died for me, so I am not afraid of death. I know that he died for all people, why should I not die to save so many lives? Besides, I believe that God will protect me.”

“Well then,” replied Nick. “Let’s go!”

****************************************

Half an hour later they were at the bottom of the skyscraper. They rushed inside, and found themselves in a very large room, where they soon located the elevator.

David looked at Nick, “Here’s the plan. I’ll go upstairs to place the device, and you stay down here in case anything happens.”

“Sounds good,” Nick replied.

“Oh, and if I’m not back in 5 minutes, get the police!” David added.

Nick gave David a nervous thumbs up, and David strode into the elevator, pushed #12 and was soon just one floor under the young man’s office.

“So, all I have to do is set the device anywhere on this floor, and it should disable his equipment,” David said quietly to himself.

“Aha!” He thought, “That’s perfect!” He put it behind a fake tree, and was heading back towards the elevator, when all of a sudden he heard someone shout, “No!”. The man had found out what he had done sooner then planned, and now he needed to get out… fast!

He ran towards the elevator, got in, pushed #1, and waited. But nothing happened! It was stuck!

He pushed the button again. Nothing. The man came closer and closer, and he mad mad. Really mad. David tried desperately to make the elevator work, but to no avail. The evil man ran into the elevator, pulled out a gun, and-

*********************************

“Beep, Beep, Beep”

12 year old Nick moved and turned over in bed, and for a second, wondered where he was. It finally dawned on him. Had all this been a dream? It had seemed so real!

As he got up and got ready for the day, he knew one thing. He was going home from school through his normal route today!


 

Okay, so I hope you guys aren’t too mad at me for the ending….

But, THANK YOU to everyone who participated! I had sooo much fun doing this!!!

In Christ,

Rosy

Can you think of a name for the story? Do you think I should host another committee story sometime? Are you mad at me for writing that ending??? XD

Random Survey Results!

Standard
Random Survey Results!

Sooo…. the Random Survey I made a few days ago was a blast! 😀 I really enjoyed seeing all your answers come in. My favorite part was seeing all your assumptions about me! That was great!

Now, I am going to post the results to the survey, and I’m also going to go through all the assumptions about me, and tell y’all which are true, and which are false! 🙂 😉

They’re have been 35 responses so far, and of course these results are only including those 35, not anyone else’s who do it later. Speaking of, if you haven’t done the survey yet, click here to do so. I would totally love to see your answers!! 😀
