A Condensed Version of the Month of May

Standard

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.

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…

I journaled quite a bit. Don’t you think the journal is pretty? A friend gave it to me! (:

Here are a few quotes from the story I’m currently working on.

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… (:

This is my by far my favorite picture that I took… (:

Photo-shoot of my shadow… lol.

Last thing, I made a video about our trip to the mountains. Here it is! (Please ignore by weird face expression! (;)

 

Well, that’s about all I can think of for now! Thanks for reading this, and btw, I love comments! 😉

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.

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…

Here is a family picture that I snapped real quick (I used a timer.) when we were taking a  video of us singing happy birthday to my grandpa.

Ruthies birthday!

Standard

Yesterday was Ruthies birthday! She turned 4 years old!Attachment001

We threw her a party, opened gifts (she did that is!) and played several games! Everyone had lots of fun!

Haha! Love that face!

We used a pink sheet for the tablecloth! Lol!

Next we ate dessert… Cookies and popcorn!

image-3

Don’t worry! We didn’t use dye for the pink! Beet powder works great!

We couldn’t smell or taste it, and the color was good! And bright!

These are of Ruthie opening her presents!

Then we played some games!

This is Ruthie pining the tail on the donkey while playing pin the tail on the donkey!

The words on the paper didn’t show up very well, but it says “Winners!”

And the other kids are clapping.

I don’t have pictures of the other games, but we played Snake (if you don’t know what that is, you can ask in the comments if you want!) and Duck, duck goose (For the sake of Ruthie!).

Phillip was so proud to participate!

He made sure everyone was looking at least half a dozen times!!!

He is so cute!

Well it was fun and Ruthie loved it!

Happy Birthday Ruthie!

The color of the line above is dedicated to Ruthie who loves pink!
