My 17th Birthday!

Standard

Hey everyone!

Today we celebrated my 17th birthday!!! Technically my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but since tomorrow is Sunday and were busy all day, we decided to celebrate the day before. (You won’t catch me complaining!) 😂 😜

For my birthday meal, I had chicken nuggets, fried potatoes, salad and garlic bread.

Yum!

And for dessert….. We had homemade ice cream (which I made, by the way 😁) And guys. It tasted better than store bought ice cream! Like, seriously. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing! 😋 😂

We had a bunch of toppings on top, such as chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce and caramel sauce (which I also made), blueberries, pecans and sprinkles. AND. The only thing that had any sugar was the sprinkles. 😀

It was all really good. It’s been 4 and a half hours, and I’m still full…! 😂

The whole family (except for me) at the table. 😀
This picture was taken at the same time as the picture above it, just from a different angle! 😂
All of my siblings and I! ❤
Several of my siblings and I 😀

Thanks to my family for an awesome birthday!!!!! It was a blast!

And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! 😂 (Well, as of tomorrow) 😉 Like how am I thought old?! 👵🏻 I don’t feel that old… Maybe that’s because I haven’t had my actual birthday yet! 🤣 Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling different. XD Lol!!

Well, I’m signing off for now! Hope y’all are having a great day, aaaaand… happy birthday to me. 😜 😂 😁 👋

Love,

Rosy

James’ Birthday!!!

Yesterday was my brother, James’, 4th birthday! 😀

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

Happy Birthday, James!

Standard

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… 🙂

Quick Update Before We Leave

Standard

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! 🙂

Lizzie’s birthdays was a few weeks ago. She turned 12. 🙂

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

Here’s a random funny meme I found. Good grief, I can’t tell if this person is smart, or foolish… Probably the latter.

Disclaimer: Do not try this at home! ;P XD

Well, I have to go and help get ready for the trip! I’ll see you guys in a few weeks. 😀

March is Over… It’s April

Standard

What? How is this even possible? I mean, it was just Christmas… And New Years…. And now we’re 1/3 of the way through the yer! 😮 Well, I’m not complaining. YAY FOR SPRING!!!! 😀

Here is an overview of the month of March at the Marr house. 🙂

Ummm….

*Mind goes blank*

Uhh… I know something must have happened last month.

Just give me… a second…

Ok! 😉

Mom, Susy and Ruthie each had a birthday this month. 🙂 Susy turned 4 on the 3rd, and Ruthie turned 7.

Guns of Thunder by Douglas Bond. (It’s really good!)

The Hidden Hand. (My friend gave this to me, and it’s REALLY good!!!!!! It’s the first lamplighter book Iv’e actually read, though I have listened to a lot of them. Seriously, I want to get more!!! But they’re expensive… Sadness! 😉 😛 XD )

The Bible. I read in Leviticus, Job, Acts and Romans. (No, I didn’t read all of each of those books… 😉 )

I learned…

Not to leave a pot of soup on the stove for more than half an hour without stirring it…

When I take pictures of dogs, I just might get my lens licked… XD

And I’m sure a lot more happened in March, I’m jut not thinking of it right now. But yeah, there was at least an idea! And I’m really looking forward to April, and the coming months! 🙂

Do any of you have birthdays in March? Have you read or listened to any lamplighter books? If so, which is your favorite? 

Post #106 – In Which I Tell You What’s Been Going on at the Marr House…

Standard

Happy National Oatmeal Muffin Day, everyone. (So, how many of you ate oatmeal muffins today?) 😛

So, I realized I should probably write up an update on my life for Ya’ll. So, welcome to Post #106 – In Which I Tell You What’s Been Going on at the Marr House. Because you probably couldn’t guess after reading that title… 😛

Anyways, so as you may remember, if you have been keeping up with my blog, I had a birthday, and so did my sister and brother. What you probably don’t remember (At least, it would be pretty creepy if you did, since it never happened…), are the pictures that I didn’t post. :/

My now 15 year old self… 😉 Isn’t the cake one of my friends made amazing??? She also made the one in the above pic.

The weather has been super cool… like, in the teen digits a few weeks ago… Brrr! We’ve had a good frost almost every morning. It really almost looks like snow!

Doesn’t it look kind of like snow?

A frozen leaf. And a freezing hand… 😛

It sadly has not yet snowed. I mean, if it’s going to have to be this cold, at least we can have a little bit of snow, right? Of course! But no… 😦 So yeah. Maybe, MAYBE, we will get to have a white Christmas this year!

Speaking of… IT’S 5 DAYS ‘TILL CHRISTMAS, GUYS!!!!!!! Can you believe it??? And it’s also almost 2019… Wow. 😮

A few week ago, my brother and I realized we were matching in clothes. (It took us about half way through the day to figure it out! 😛 ) Then, of course, I had to take pictures… Which was actually a challenge, since Andy (My Bro), didn’t want to… (Well, he pretended not to want to…) xD

Aaaaand, this is what it actually took to get a good picture… 😛 =D

A Condensed Version of the Month of May

May is over!!! And it’s June (almost)! We are almost halfway through the year! (I think the halfway mark is July 1.) Time is flying like crazy. So, anyway, here are a bunch of pictures that should mostly sum up the month of May.

P1310270

Aww! My little bro James is the most adorable child! Here he is, drawing a picture.

Our family took a trip up to the mountains where my dad often goes to preach. That was the first time that our whole family has a gone up there!

Our dog gave us a cat. Well, sort of… More like she brought us a cat. She just strutted into the yard carrying a little black thingy that looked like a rat… Which turned out to actually be a kitten who wasn’t really cute until she was a lot older… My sister claimed her, and took care of her. She is named Spark.

Here she is now with my sister, Gracie.

This is from a photoshoot I took of myself using self-timer on my camera.

 

We finally gave away all our puppies!!! We started out with ten of them, and after they were older were a huge annoyance…. Dad tried to sell them, but nobody would buy them, so he just gave them away. Lol, we are all relieved! We did keep one pup, whom we named Emma.

Here are the puppies before they were given away. They are by the front door, waiting for some unsuspecting human to open it, so they can bound right in…

Last week was my younger sister, Lizzie’s 11th birthday. Pictures aren’t good, because I forgot to actually look at my camera…

She got water balloons for her birthday, so we had a water balloon fight. There were 100 balloons, but the fight lasted about 4 1/2 minutes. And when it was finished, nobody was actually really wet, just the ground. Lizzie and Andy just weren’t satisfied, so so dumped a few buckets of water on their heads… (:

How did your month go?

 

A Condensed Version of the Month of March

Standard

And I thought I was late last month! Well, lately has been pretty busy. (Isn’t it always?!) Well, March was busy. Two birthdays, a week long trip, puppies, and a neat concert. So, I’ll take them each one by one.

Birthdays

Mom and Ruthie both had birthdays this month. I didn’t get pictures of Mom’s birthday, but I did of Ruthie’s. Both of their birthday’s were actually at my grandparents house, which I will talk about later in this post, but we celebrated Ruthie’s when we got home. She turned six. And, just for fun, here is a link to the blog post I did a few years ago for her 4th Birthday!

A Week Long Trip

We took a trip to our Grandparent’s house last week. We spent a few days with just us and then, during which we… Celebrated Christmas. I’m not joking! We literally couldn’t find a good time to get together between then and Christmas! After a few days, we went to family camp, which my grandparents do. They are missionaries in Mexico too, in another state. Here are a few pictures from the trip. I am planning on doing a much longer post on that topic later. I took a lot of pictures on that trip.. Including what I deleted, I probably took around 1000 of them! As you can see, from the second to top picture, I got really sunburnt… Like, really…

New Puppies

Our dog, Velvet, just had puppies a few weeks ago. The puppies are really cute. I took a lot of pictures, but here are two of the better ones. And I only photographed one of the puppies so far.

P1290968P1290983

A concert

When we heard that the Bontrager Family singers were going to have a concert at our church in AZ, we were all wishing that we could go so bad. That afternoon, I asked Dad what we were planning on doing that night. He said “We’re going to the Bontrager’s concert.”. Wha…??? Well, it turns out that the Bontrager were here in Couhtemoc right then! They were doing a concert here before they moved on to AZ! So, we ended up seeing the Bontragers after all. And I made friends with one of her daughters who is about my age!

Well, that’s about it for March. And be on the look out for more posts soon! I have about 7 ideas right now…
