Mini Pizzas

Video

A few days ago, I was supposed to make pizza for supper. I decided to make little individual ones, so everyone could have their own. The kids loved them, and everyone, especially Philip (age 4) was proud to be able to claim that he ate a whole pizza.

Here is a short little video I put together about making them. Some of the scenes are a little bit (a lot…) shaky, because I was trying to hold the camera in my hands or around my neck at the same time as I was making the pizzas… Sorry!

 

A Condensed version of the Month of February

A Condensed version of the Month of February

Hi everybody! Can you believe it’s already March?! I mean, we just celebrated New Years! Even though it’s a bit late, here is a simple overview of some of what went on in the Marr family household this last month.

 

Well, probably the main event of this month was the hot dog and Marshmallow roast we did at church a few weeks ago. This is the second time we have done it, but last time, it was to dark to get good pictures. I did this time though, thankfully.

Lucia accidentally set her marshmallow on fire, causing many laughs.

The food table, before and after the roast. It was impossible to keep clean!

The food was good, though!

And so were the marshmallows!

The younger kids played and rode bikes.

And, if you have been following my blog, you probably know about our trip to El Paso.

Andy was the goalie. The ball wasn’t coming, so he decided to rest a bit…

Then, he had a brilliant idea! However, the other team wasn’t too enthusiastic…

 

Well, that’s about all of the important stuff.

What did you do during the month of February? Are you excited about March?

 

 

A Trip to the Border

Standard
A Trip to the Border

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Dad, Bekah, Ruthie and I went on a trip to the Border (as the title indicates…). It’s about five to six hours there, depending on how many of our family are going.😉

We got up early on Tuesday morning, at about 4:30 and left at about 5:00.

This is what the lights of Cuauhtemoc (where we live) look like when the car hits a bump… It was the best I could do on a dirt road.

P1270593

More lights.

We ate somewhere around 7:30. Breakfast was peanut butter sandwiches and oranges Lizzie made the night before. (She didn’t make the oranges, though.)

P1270596

We stopped at Oxxo, and Dad got some Coffee to keep himself awake.

*Skips a few hours…*

P1270640

When we reached the border, the line wasn’t too long, thankfully.

While we were waiting, I photographed the Mexican flag.

P1270658

We made it across uneventfully, and we were soon zooming down the road in New Mexico. I don’t know if you can see it very well, but El Paso is right up against that mountain, in Texas.

P1270696

The city on our side of that big red X is El Paso, and on the other side is a city in Mexico. Don’t ask me what the X stands for…

Dad put his hat on backwards.🤣

The clouds were so pretty!!!

And this is a picture of me… eating a grape?

Opening boxes, so that we can fit everything into the car.

This is… the building next to the building where we get our mail. I was bored…

While I was waiting in the car, I also took some pictures of planes going by, using my zoom lens.

El Paso Sky-line

In the evening, we went out to eat at Chilis with a friend, and then we went to a Bible study with him. We stayed in the home of one of the families from the study. In the morning, we got up at about 5:30, and left at around 6:00.

“Welcome to Chihuahua-The big state” Chihuahua is the name of the state in Mexico that we live in. It’s the biggest state.

We made it back across the border with no problems, again, praise God. And then we were on our way home!

“Don’t leave us!!!”

Almost home! You can see the big white van.🙂

Aww, my sweet brother Philip! (My sweet, dirty brother Phillip!…)

What about you? Do you like car trips? What do you like to do to pass the time?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Condensed Version of the Month of January

Standard

Here is a basic review, made up of mostly pictures, of the month of January at the Marr household.

WARNING : PICTURE OVERLOAD AHEAD

I got to capture quite a few cool sunsets this month on my camera.

 

And some pictures of the moon. Taking good pictures of the moon is really hard! You’d know, if you’ve ever tried.

 

A lot of hair cutting, too. I got to cut my little sisters bangs and Mom cut my hair shorter. I really like the new look!

 

Little James is growing up so much! Here he is, wrestling with big brother Philip.

 

And of few other cute pics of him.

 

I have been enjoying learning to drive a lot.

Visiting after church

Over the several days, I have made three different flavors of marshmallows, each a double batch. And, just so you know, we don’t usually make marshmallows nearly so often, but we were going to have our Grandparents over. Unfortunately, they were’t able to make it, so now we have a lot of marshmallows in the house. The flavors I made were, in order from right to left, chocolate covered cherrie, eggnog and chocolate peppermint. Now you may be thinking how strange eggnog might taste. I was thinking that too, while I was making them, but they turned out better than I expected they would. (There is not actually any eggs in them, BTW. It’s just regular marshmallows with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in them.)

 

Well, that’s pretty much it for this month.

P.S. I would love to hear from you in the comments!

 

 

 

“No Sword-fighting in the House!”

Standard

It was a warm, quiet evening…. Okay, it was actually a freezing, exhausting evening.  I was in my bed, under the covers, reading a book (pure bliss, btw…), called Guns of Thunder. Suddenly, shots rang out (in the book.). Oddly, they seemed a bit too loud to be real. And they didn’t sound genuine. I heard a few yelps, then some streaks and laughter. I slowly stumbled out of bed, my book sliding off my lap and losing my place. When I walked into the living room, there was Dad, engaging Andy to a broom-fight dual. It could have knocked my hat off. That is, if I was wearing a hat, which I wasn’t. It was actually pretty funny!

Oh dear, we have a stowaway!

Fortunately for them, Mom was in the other room.
