Home Alone// Jesus Loves Me

Home Alone// Jesus Loves Me

This weekend most of the family went to El Paso, Texas, mainly to drop Mom and Lizzie off at the airport, as they are heading to Kansas. They left early yesterday morning. (Early, like, 4:00 a.m. or something! 😮 ) I am staying home with Gracie, Bekah and Ruthie. The rest of the family should be back later this afternoon. 🙃

While they’re gone, Gracie and I are taking advantage of the quiet and making as many song videos as we possibly can for our blog, The Delightful Dueters. 😄 Here’s one we did with Bekah and Ruthie. I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out. They did a great job! 😁 😉

Have an awesome day! 😀

Recent and Not-So-Recent Art

Standard
Recent and Not-So-Recent Art

A friend requested that I do a post about my drawings, and I was kind of inspired to actually do it when I saw Amie’s post, here. So, consequently, you are going to be forced  to get to see some of my recent, and not-so-recent drawings! 😀

We’ll start with my not-so-recent drawings. These were done several years ago, back when we lived in Arizona.

The pilgrims. I think… 😉

p1030894

A dolphin!

p1030899.jpg

This boy is either praying… or he really does not like whatever is in his bowl.

And then I improved a bit… (These are mostly after we moved to Mexico three years ago.)

p1030896.jpg

This one was supposed to be my dad preaching. It doesn’t really look much like him, lol…

p1030895

And it was only recently that I got serious about drawing… Here is some of my most recent art. 🙂

p1030886

An interesting looking chipmunk

p1030884

A praying mantis

p1030887

Some random hand lettering I did. I really want to practice and get better at this!

p1030888

This was going to be a bald eagle… But it turned out to be a seagull instead, lol!

These last three are all my favorites!!! 😀

p1030885

A ship. (Since you probably couldn’t tell… 😛 )

p1030890

I love this one! 😀 ❤ 

Last, but not least, is my so-far, absolute favorite! It’s still a WIP though. 🙂 I’m really loving how this is turning out! Besides, it’s horses!!! 😀

Aaaaand, there you have it!

Have a great rest of the day! (Or if you live in Australia, night!) 😀

Which picture was your favorite? Do you like to draw? Does anyone else dislike the new WordPress editor? I just can’t figure out these block things! 😛

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 5 year old brother, Philip, and now 14 year old sis, Gracie. 😀

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!

P1030380

Doesn’t it look kind of like snow?

P1030382

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

Matching

Matching 2

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

My friend and I. This pic was actually taken about a year ago, but I just decided to post it anyway. Just cuz… 😛

I’m in this position half my life. And of course, I never exaggerate. Right? RIGHT? Of course. 

Oh, and I’m participating in this photography contest! You can see all my pics for the contest here. I’ll be adding a new one every week!

This, my friends, is a snake. At our house. In our tree. Guys, it was the funnest EVER to photograph!!! Seriously!

James’ Piano Debut

Standard

Hi guys, we’re back! We had a super great time while we were there. I will tell ya’ll all about it later. Lord willing, I will be vlogging about it, too!

Anyway, while we were in Colorado, James was was drumming on the piano, and I got an idea… This is the result of my creative mind… lol, jk!

Don’t you think that James is sooo very adorable?

Silly Silhuettes

Standard
Silly Silhuettes

Okay, so, not all of these are silly, several of them I really love. Especially the ones of (most) all of my siblings together! ❤ What I did, was simply grabbed a couple siblings, stuck ‘em on the wall with the sunset behind it, and took pictures. 😛 (A lot more than what you’ll see here, but they weren’t all good. Of course. What photographer get’s all good pictures, anyway? 😀). So, here they are! (:

 

These are of my sister Lizzie (10).

 

Then I had her jump in the air. These didn’t turn out super great, partly because the exposure is to low.

 

 

And then I got Gracie (13), up there too, and she and Lizzie had a few fake arguments… (:

P1300774

And then Bekah (8) joined in the fun.

 

 

And, one by one, we were joined with more and more of my siblings! (These pictures do not include 2 of my my other siblings, and, of course, me.)

P1300792

This was my try at having everybody jump… Lol.

 

That’s about it! Doing that was a lot of fun. Here is my favorite one.

Which one is your favorite? I would love to hear from you in the comments!!! (:

A Condensed version of the Month of April

Standard

Hi everyone! April has been busy, fun and… Hmm, what else? Musical!!! My sister Gracie and I made four whole song videos all of which will probably make their way here, one by one eventually. There was several beautiful sunsets, and I took tons of silhouettes with my siblings. But those will be in another post by themselves later (cuz there are so many of them, lol!)

 

A few of the sunsets

 

P1310190

And even a sunrise!!! (I don’t usually get to take pics of those. You can probably guess why!😛)

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 3.27.14 PM

I decided to post just one of the silhouettes on the post. I just grabbed a few of my siblings, and shot them real quick. (With the camera, of course! 😀)

P1300900

The moon

 

Aww! Little sister, Susy.

 

 

My absolutely adorable brother Philip!

My younger sisters, Gracie (13), Lizzie (10), and I, singing at a Mennonite church while Dad plays the guitar.

Well, that’s about it for this month. We also have a stray kitten that our dog Velvet brought in from somewhere. My siblings are having a blast taking care of it.

Oh, and also, I made a video for family camp! I didn’t get it done until just now, so that’s why I didn’t post it her until now. Here it is!

 

Well, until next time!

Trip to Couihila Part 1: Time with Relatives

Standard

For those of you who are wondering, Coauhuila is a state here in Mexico. That’s also the state where I was born!

I am planning to break this trip up into a few parts (I’m not sure how many yet!), and write about it over the next few days. (That includes pictures, of course!)

So, we left a few weeks ago, on Monday, at about 4:00 am. We drove all day (almost), and arrived at my grandparents house at about 4:00 pm. We had a good time visiting, and catching up.

Mom with my Grandma, and Dad with my Grandpa and Uncle.

This is a funny picture! He looks like he’s hitting her, but he’s not. I’m not sure what he was really doing…

I found the title to this book really funny!

Here is a quote from my 9 year old aunt Abigail.

“Rosy, you know, you’re lucky! Not everyone gets to hold their aunt on their lap!”

On the next part, I will post pictures of Family Camp!

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.

Peach Flowers, Bees and Sunsets

Image

Last week, when our peach tree had just bloomed, I got the chance to take some good pictures. I only meant to take a couple, but then I spotted a whole bunch of bees, and that was too hard to resist… So, I ended up taking about 50 pictures. Not all of them worked out, of course, so I deleted a lot. Here are a few of the best ones.
