My 18th Birthday!

Standard
My 18th Birthday!

Hey everyone! πŸ˜€

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… 🀣 But I’m not, so moving on. XD

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

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.) πŸ™‚ It was sooo much fun to make, and it turned out delicious!! πŸ˜‹

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. πŸ˜‹

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


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.πŸ˜‚)

All of my siblings and me!! πŸ˜€ ❀️

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!! ❀️

Love,

Rosy 🌸

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

July 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up

Standard

Hello people! Can you believe it’s already (practically!) July?! So crazy! But, I’m going to hold off rambling about it too much, because I have enough of that in the next post. (Stay tuned!) Lol!! πŸ˜‚ 😁 But yay for summer!!

My theme for this month, is…

πŸ‰ Watermelon!! πŸ‰

This was super fun to do, and I was even eating watermelon while I was making it! πŸ˜€ πŸ‰ Fun times!

First, we have the cover page, calendar, goals (which I haven’t written yet… XD) and my word of the month, which is diligence. πŸ˜€ 😁

Love how the cover page turned out!

For my mood tracker, I did a bunch of little watermelons, and for the habit tracker I just did a SUPER simple one. I’ll probably go over it, and spice it up later… It’s kind of boring right now! XD

A Line a Day (where I write a bit about my day, each day) and a sleep tracker. This is my first time doing a sleep tracker, so we’ll see how that goes!! And again, these pages are slightly boring, but oh well… At least it’s functional! Lol. πŸ˜„

And as always, my absolute favorite spread…..!!!! The books I’m reading, my blog and youtube post tracker, and my Bible reading tracker!! Love it. Lol! πŸ˜‚ 😁

And lastly, my weekly spreads. It’s super pretty, but it doesn’t need to be, so. Haha! 😁

Please ignore that weird little watermelon thing in the corner. Ahhh, that did not work!! 🀣

And that’s that! Thank you all so much for reading this post. ❀ I enjoyed doing this set up, and I’m super excited to use it. I love new months!!! πŸ˜€

Love,

Rosy 🌻 πŸ‰ ❀️

How was your month? Do you have any plans for July? What’s your favorite part of summer?

P.S. Here’s a fun little thing for you guys! How many points did you get?!! I think I have 12. πŸ˜„ 😁

February 2021 Recap!

Standard
February 2021 Recap!

Hey everyone!!

IT’S ALREADY ALMOST THE THIRD MONTH OF 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooow!!!!!!! I find that hard to believe… February just flew right by. It was a great month though! At least I think it was. I forget what even happened. Consequently, I’m just as excited as you to find out, LOL!

~Sometimes near the beginning of February, our family, plus our friend Susanna who was visiting us, had a hotdog and s’mores roast. T’was a lot of fun! We used healthy homemade marshmallows for the s’mores. πŸ˜„ πŸ˜‹

~Sometime around the same time, mom, Grace, Lizzie, Susanna and I went on a girl’s date kinda thing. We went out to eat, and to a thrift store! (you can see what I got at the thrift store HERE!) It was a BLAST!

~We went out to eat (AGAIN?!) with Susanna. It’s kinda a tradition to take our American friends to this restaurant when they visit, so we had no choice. We don’t usually go out to eat this much, lol!

Shortly aftwerwards, Susanna left, and we all missed her lots. ❀

~Siblings selfies! πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘Œ

~Doing a class with a couple of my siblings πŸ˜„

~A few days ago was the 5th anniversary of our ministry here in Mexico! Here is a picture of us last Sunday.

~Last Monday (the 22nd), Ruthie, Susy and I went to the Border with Dad to get mail, go shopping and stuff like that. πŸ™‚ It was a very fun trip!

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!) πŸ˜‚ 😜

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! πŸ˜‹ πŸ˜‚

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. πŸ˜€

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

The whole family (except for me) at the table. πŸ˜€
This picture was taken at the same time as the picture above it, just from a different angle! πŸ˜‚

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

And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! πŸ˜‚ (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ Like how am I thought old?! πŸ‘΅πŸ» 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. 😜 πŸ˜‚ 😁 πŸ‘‹

Love,

Out Trip to Colorado, Part 3

Out Trip to Colorado, Part 3

Here is the third video about when we went to Colorado. This one is the longest one, because we went to the zoo, where I took lots of pictures and videos. xD

 

P.S.Β This morning I found this small leaf with some kind of eggs on it. The tiny eggs were empty (I think… :/), and there were baby bugs sitting next to them. It was so neat to see and photograph! πŸ™‚

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 β€œWe’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 Β video of us singing happy birthday to my grandpa.

Dump Ranch Dressing

Standard

This healthy ranch dressing is super easy to make, and it tastes really good! (Surprisingly!) It’s called Dump ranch because you just dump all the ingredients together and blend it! Like I said, super easy.

Here is a little video I made of me making it. If you want the exact recipe, click here.

Oh, and also, my family and I will be leaving early in the morning on Monday to go to my grandparents house for a family camp they host. They are missionaries in Mexico as well, and they’re about 11 or 12 hours away. Hopefully, though I’m not promising anything, I’ll try to do a blog post about it. We will be gone for about a week, so I won’t be here for a while to post anything or answer comments. So, pray for us while were gone! (Don’t miss me too much! JK.)

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

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!

P1270990

The food was good, though!

And so were the marshmallows!

P1280046

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…

P1270581

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.πŸ˜‰

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

P1270590

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

P1270593

More lights.

P1270602

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.🀣

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.

P1270749

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.

This is the rosing sun, through our dirty car window.

P1270806

“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!

β€œDon’t leave us!!!”

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