March Recap

Standard

March was a long month… A lot of crazy stuff happened, as I’m sure you know! πŸ˜‰ 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…Β  XD

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

Yup. XDΒ 

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

Mom had her 40th birthday this month! πŸ˜€

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

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

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

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. πŸ™‚ Here is our church picture (minus a couple families). πŸ˜‰

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

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! πŸ™‚

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…Β πŸ˜„Β 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! πŸ˜€
