November 2021, Recap// Celebrating November’s National Holidays

Hey everyone!!

I’m feeling quite un-inspired about how to introduce and start this post, lol. So I think I’m just going to call this very poor excuse for a paragraph an intro, and just get into it. ๐Ÿ˜‰.๐Ÿ˜

I seriously cannot think of much that happened in November…. So I’ll just think of things as I go, and hopefully come up with some stuff. I’ll also tell you guys about how I celebrated some of November’s National Holidays, so hopefully it won’t be too short a post. ๐Ÿ™‚


My sister Grace, and brother Philip each had a birthday this month. Grace turned 17, and Philip turned 8! ๐Ÿ™‚

My sister, Grace, and I get to be “twins” for a bit each year. Since we were born 11 and a half months apart, we’re the same age for about 12 days!! We took these pictures while we were both 17. ๐Ÿ™‚

Grace, Lizzie and I decided to match plaid turtlenecks for church that day, which was really fun!


Then my 18th birthday happened the next day, which of course, you probably already know about from past posts, so I won’t talk about it here. But I’ll re-post a couple pictures. ๐Ÿ˜€


A few of my siblings and I. ๐Ÿ™‚

This was our family’s Thanksgiving dinner! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bekah and Ruthie did a great job making the rolls!

My youngest siblings and I, while I teach them school. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿฅฐ

And my friend Kyra insists that I share this bit of writing with you all… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‚ Basically, while learning about writing good news articles in school, one of my assignments was to write two different news articles about a nursery rhyme, but from two different biased points of view. I chose the old rhyme that says, “Ding dong, pussy’s in the well. Who put her in? Little Johnny Flynn.”๐Ÿ˜‚ Here are my articles. They kind of silly, but they were a lot of fun to write!! XD

And this one is from the opposite bias as the last one. ๐Ÿ™‚

In November, I…

Now on to…

Celebrating November’s National Holidays!!

Before November started, I wrote down all it’s National holidays, so that I could celebrate as many as I could. I was able to get nearly all of them, but I really enjoyed the ones I did get to!!

November 1st – National Cinnamon Day

I made cinnamon toast. Mmm!!

November 2nd – National Deviled Egg Day

November 3rd – National Sandwich Day

We made Patty Melts for supper, which are kind of a mix of a burger and a sandwich… But we’re just calling it a sandwich. ๐Ÿ˜‰

November 8th – National Cappuccino Day

November 14th – Spicy Guacamole Day

I didn’t get a picture, but I did make some!! Yum!!

November 15th – National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day

I should have gotten before and after pictures… You probably don’t want to see the before picture though. It was pretty messy…!! lol!

November 20th – National Peanut Butter Fudge Day

Didn’t get a picture of this either… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But it was so good!!


These were sooo much fun, and I hope to do it again soon!!

I hope everyone had a great November, and that you all have an awesome Christmas season. This is one of my absolute favorite times of the year, and I’m really excited about it! ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐ŸŽ„ โ„๏ธ

Love,

What are your highlights from November? What are you most looking forward to this Christmas season?

My 18th Birthday!

Standard
My 18th Birthday!

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

A few days ago was my 18th birthday…!! Frankly, that’s a little bit (lot) hard to believe. It’s crazy. Seriously, I feel like I should still be 14… ๐Ÿคฃ But I’m not, so moving on. XD

Here’s a recap of how my day went. ๐Ÿ™‚

In the morning I worked on making my birthday dessert, a special new invention of mine – Rosy’s Famous Quadruple Layer Pumpkin Pie Extraordinaire. I hadn’t even made it before when I named it, so don’t ask how it was even famous. I wasn’t sure if it would work well when I was making it, but it turned out amazing!! The four layers were… Cream cheese, marshmallow, pumpkin pie pudding filling, and lastly, whipped cream!! Here are pictures of how I assembled it.

I made each layer from scratch, and it’s all completely healthy!!! (Except for the crust, in which I used real graham crackers.) ๐Ÿ™‚ It was sooo much fun to make, and it turned out delicious!! ๐Ÿ˜‹

For the meal, I chose a favorite of mine… Enchiladas Potosinas, which is probably unlike any enchiladas you’ve ever seen before.

You make corn tortillas with a red salsa sauce, and fill it with cheese, onions and salsa, and fry it. They’re kind of like quesadillas, but in a totally different league. They took almost all afternoon to make, but it was totally worth it.

This is the cheese mixture, and the corn tortillas dough.

I didn’t get get any picture of most of the making process, but basically we flattened the dough into a tortilla shape, fill it with cheese and folded it in half. Then we cooked them, and when they were all cooked… We fried them – a very important and in-excludable step. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Here is the finished meal – featuring beans, avocado, and all the other stuff that you eat with enchiladas potosinas. It was so good!!! ๐Ÿ˜€


For my birthday, I got some yummy tea from my brother Andy, and make-up from my parents! (The tradition, is we get to wear make-up when we turn 18.๐Ÿ˜‚)

All of my siblings and me!! ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ

That evening, my mom and a few of my sisters had a girl’s movie movie night, and watched part of Pride and Prejudice. It’s around 6 hours total, so we didn’t watch nearly the whole thing…!! It was a fun time!!


I had an amazing birthday, and I’m thankful to God for giving me another year of life – I’m excited to be 18! Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, and for making my day really special!! โค๏ธ

Love,

Rosy ๐ŸŒธ

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

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!) ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜œ

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 ๐Ÿ˜) And guys. It tasted better than store bought ice cream! Like, seriously. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing! ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ˜‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

It was all really good. It’s been 4 and a half hours, and I’m still full…! ๐Ÿ˜‚

The whole family (except for me) at the table. ๐Ÿ˜€
This picture was taken at the same time as the picture above it, just from a different angle! ๐Ÿ˜‚
All of my siblings and I! โค
Several of my siblings and I ๐Ÿ˜€

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

And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! ๐Ÿ˜‚ (Well, as of tomorrow) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Like how am I thought old?! ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป I don’t feel that old… Maybe that’s because I haven’t had my actual birthday yet! ๐Ÿคฃ 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. ๐Ÿ˜œ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘‹

Love,

Rosy

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We haven’t done almost any packing yet, so we’re doing that today. We’re leaving the day after tomorrow!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (For those of you who don’t know, we’re going to Alabama and Georgia.) We’re way excited!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, here’s a few pictures from the last few weeks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Post #106 – In Which I Tell You Whatโ€™s Been Going on at the Marr House…

Happy National Oatmeal Muffin Day, everyone. (So, how many of you ate oatmeal muffins today?) ๐Ÿ˜›

So, I realized I should probably write up an update on my life for Yaโ€™ll. So, welcome to Post #106 – In Which I Tell You Whatโ€™s Been Going on at the Marr House. Because you probably couldnโ€™t guess after reading that title… ๐Ÿ˜›

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 donโ€™t remember (At least, it would be pretty creepy if you did, since it never happened…), are the pictures that I didnโ€™t post. :/

It sadly has not yet snowed. I mean, if itโ€™s going to have to be this cold, at least we can have a little bit of snow, right? Of course! But no… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So yeah. Maybe, MAYBE, we will get to have a white Christmas this year!

Speaking of… ITโ€™S 5 DAYS โ€˜TILL CHRISTMAS, GUYS!!!!!!! Can you believe it??? And itโ€™s also almost 2019… Wow. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

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! ๐Ÿ˜› ) Then, of course, I had to take pictures… Which was actually a challenge, since Andy (My Bro), didnโ€™t want to… (Well, he pretendedย not to want to…) xD
