September 2021 Recap

September 2021 Recap

Hey everyone! I’M BACK!! After a trip, and getting sick for a few days, I’m finally here and ready to blog again. I’ll have more details about that later! 😁

Oh and yeah, so sorry this post is so late. Again, I was sick. XD Let’s see how much of September I can even remember – at least from the beginning!

*ALERT: Lots and lots of pictures ahead…. Enter at your own risk* ;P

~Well, you already know about our Apple Harvest. That was a good productive time!

~Right after that, my Grandma and (13 year old) Aunt Abigail came to stay with us while my parents went on a trip together. It was so much fun to get to spend some time with them!

Giant selfie! (Or Us-ie…?) XD

Lizzie and I with Abigail

I love all these pictures of Grandma and each of us kids! ❀️

Mom and Dad went to the Copper canyon together, which is a few hours away from here. They rode the world’s longest zip-line, hiked, went boating and did other fun stuff together!

When they got back, we had a hotdog roast for my brother Andy’s 13th birthday

We planted pumpkins for the first time ever, and I love them! I definitely want to start planting them every year. They’re so pretty! Can’t wait to make some pies and other pumpkin-y treats with them. πŸ˜€

After that, I think we just did normal stuff, got sick, and got ready for our trip. So skip all that, and now you’re caught up to the fun part! You’re welcome. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜€

~FAMILY CAMP! This was probably my highlight of the entire year… It was amazing to spend a couple of days with our great friends at Heritage Baptist Church. I don’t have a whole ton of pictures – instead I’m making a video. But it’s not done yet, so. πŸ˜… I do have some though!

We sang a LOT during camp. Friday night, we played guitar and sang until around 11:30 I think, and I pretty much lost my voice the rest of the night.πŸ˜… Totally worth it though, because I enjoyed that time so much. πŸ˜€

My fellow redhead, Gabby, and I braided our hair together, which was really fun/funny! πŸ˜…

Congregational singing

Camp was amazing – way better than I’m making it sound at the moment. πŸ˜‚ Hopefully I’ll be able to share the video I’m making about it later. For now, gotta keep working on it! πŸ˜‰

~While there, we also visited another church and had some good fellowship with friends we hadn’t seen in awhile, as well as some new friends. πŸ˜€

~After Family Camp, we stayed in AZ for another week or so to visit with friends, and also for a wedding! (Pictures of that will have to be in a future post, since that happened in October, not September… lol.)

Anyway, we had a great visiting our friends, the Hublers. We got to spend a good bit of the day with them. We took a spur of the moment trip to the store for ice cream, which we brought home and ate with homemade cookies. So fun!!!!

Playing Chess with Gabby. She creamed me big time, but it was still lots of fun!!!

A few days later we went to the Petzold’s house, which was awesome, and a whole new fun adventure in itself!

I did some recording with Kyra, which was a lot of fun!!

Last time we were together, we accidentally took a picture where it looked like Annika’s arm was really long. We decided to try and redo that picture, and here are our results. I think it turned out pretty good, haha!! πŸ˜‚

They made some amazing, delicious pies!!

Well, I’d probably better start to bring this post to an end now, so let’s get on with this month’s stats. πŸ™‚

August 2021 Recap

August 2021 Recap

Hey everybody!!

Can you believe it’s already September?! I’m especially excited for this month, because 1) AUTUMN! and 2) We’re planning on taking a trip to go to Family Camp with our Church there. We haven’t seen them in a year now (which is waayyy too long), and we’re really, really, extremely excited!!! That’s near the end of the month, and I’m very sure you’ll hear lots about it in future posts. πŸ˜€ So exciting!

This post, however, is about August, not September, so let’s get into it!! πŸ˜€


Early in the month, our family traveled to a town a few hours away to visit some good friends of ours and to start of some evangelical meetings there. We stayed for a couple of days, and had a really good time!

A bunch of us got up early(ish) in the morning to go hiking with our friends in the mountains Ok, large hills by the town. We hiked for a couple of miles, but it felt like longer, as some parts weren’t super easy going. It was loads of fun though! The little kids did a great job keeping up. πŸ˜„

The view was really pretty from the top!!

Later that afternoon we played soccer until we were tired out, and then they taught us a Mexican game that I forget the name of…. It was kinda similar to baseball, but also quite different. I don’t even know how to play baseball. But they told me it was similar, so. Lol!

After that we rested, and watched the kids get wet and muddy, and catch toads. It was really hot and dry, so the water felt good. πŸ˜‚

That evening we held a meeting inside our friend’s pizza place, which went well. πŸ™‚ We left at around… 8:00 maybe? And got home around 11 or 12. πŸ˜„ It was a really good time!!


I can’t think of any other major events or anything that happened after that, so here are a few random photos for you guys. πŸ˜€

James and Me!
Mom and the youngest kids doing school
Andy and a garter snake he caught

Some pictures of our family on a walk. I got carried away taking pictures with my brother’s camera. The selfie stick was fun, lol! I won’t post all the pictures (there were a lot XD), but here are a couple of the best ones.

Dad doing a Bible study with some friends of ours in the mountains

June 2021, Recap!

Hello my dear blog readers! I hope this post finds you well, and in good spirits. And if not, it is my great hope that this post will bestow unto you joy and pleasure, and that you may leave happy and contented.

Ok, that was slightly weird, but hey, it’s true. (Even if it is worded in a slightly unique manner.) Lol!!πŸ˜‚

Anyway!! Am I the only one who is sitting here in shocked silence, because JUNE IS OVER?! I am currently speechless, but at least I can still type. We’re half way done with 2021! Crazy!! BUT EXCITING!!!

The month of June went very well (for the most part) for us. Save one aspect, which I will discuss at a later juncture. (I don’t know why I keep talking like this, LOL! Maybe it’s because I’ve been reading old books…? Ok, yeah probably. Deal with it.) 🀣

So here I am, at 5:25 in the afternoon, drinking ice tea and writing this blog post. πŸ˜€

~ Early in the month, we had some friends over for the day, which was fun! We played Apples to Apples, and… I won. XD (Not bragging, just stating the facts! LOL!!) We like to play that the cards you win are supposed to describe you… That can get pretty crazy, haha!!

What do y’all think? Do these words describe me??? 🀣

~I’ve been walking a lot lately. I try to get it 2 miles a day. (well sometimes…!) Listening to podcasts motivates me to actually do it. My favorite podcast to listen to is Revive our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. πŸ˜€

~We went to Colorado, for my Grandma’s 70th birthday party! That was a good trip, and a lot of fun! πŸ˜€

On the way we listening to Ranger Bill, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre (This Hiding Place), Lamplighters, and I listened to an audio book. (“The Lamplighter” It was really good!!)

Andy and Philip

A couple of books I bought at a thrift store. Look how THICK!!! Can’t wait to read them!!

Playing Clue with my siblings πŸ˜€

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry this is late… very late… I will try my best to do better next month! πŸ˜‚

Anyway, May was a great month! *Tries to remember what even happened* At least I’m pretty sure it was. It’s been 12 whole days since May, and you can’t expect my brain to remember that far. πŸ˜‰ Let me just find some pictures, and maybe that will refresh my memory… πŸ˜‰

Ok, I’m going to start with the highlight of my month… Earlier in the month, our family met up with some amazing friends of ours, the Petzolds, in El Paso! They drove all the way from Arizona, which was amazing. We had a blast with them!

James and I, on the road.

We went to a park, where we visited, played games, soccer, and sang together. So much fun!!

❀️❀️ One of my favorites!!

I laugh whenever I see this picture, because it looks like Annika has a mega long arm 🀣

LOL!

Mr. Petzold got ice cream for everyone, which was DELICIOUS!! I got cookies ‘n cream…. YUMM!!

Eating breakfast outside the hotel, and saying our sad goodbyes….

And yeah, that was an amazing and SUPER fun time!!

~I cut (and layered) my own hair. I really like how it turned out! (And yeah, it’s slightly curly…!) 🀣

~Video called my friend, Carolina. πŸ˜€

And there you have it!! May was a super fun month! πŸ˜„ June’s been good too, but I can’t talk about that yet, since this post is about May. LOL! Again, super sorry I’m so late….!!! And it’s so crazy to think that it’s already almost half way through the year…. WOW!! It’s going by so fast! XD πŸ˜€

How was your month? πŸ˜€ What’s your favorite ice cream flavor??

Visiting our Grandparents (April, 2021)

Standard

Hey everyone! I’m just popping in to tell you guys all about our trip to our grandparent’s house a couple of weeks ago. πŸ˜„ (I mentioned it briefly in THIS POST) πŸ™‚ I showed y’all a few pictures, but I have a bunch more here for you guys!

Warning: This may be a long post, so get ready! XD

My grandparent’s live in the mountains of Coahuila, Mexico, about a days drive from our house. We left early in the morning (around 4:00 am, I think). And somehow I was actually able to doze on and off a bit between 5 and 6, which was nice! At around 7:30, we stopped at a burrito stand for breakfast. (If you know me, you know that’s my favorite part of any trip – getting burritos from one of those burrito stands on the side of the road.) Ok, maybe not my FAVORITE, but I love it. Don’t worry, being with my grandparents was much better.πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

Waiting for our burritos in Parral, Chihuahua 😁

After that, we settled down for our long journey, listening to the daring adventures of Ranger Bill along the way. (Ever since our friends, the Cooks, gave the audio drama to us, no trip has been complete without it!)πŸ˜‚

(Oh, and I forgot to mention, Lizzie brought her dog Jock. He actually did really well in the van.) πŸ™‚

And this is how we entertain ourselves in the car… LOL! Poor dog! 🀣

After that, everyone had to try on the sunglasses. 😎

Bekah and I worked in our bullet journals for a while, despite the constant bumping and jostling of the car. (Mexican highways are so much bumpier than in the States) XD We didn’t end up doing for too long though, so we wouldn’t end up ruining our journals forever. πŸ˜‚ But it was still fun!

Me. Taking a photo. In the gas station bathroom. Brilliant, I know! XD LOL.

After that, we spent the rest of our time reading, being weird and laughing too hard, singing to instrumental bluegrass hymns, being bored, and looking forward to getting there. πŸ˜€

I also found some neat photography opportunities at a couple of the gas stations. πŸ˜€ I really like how they turned out! πŸ˜€

My sister, Grace, tried taking a picture of me… The sun was so bright, it uh, didn’t exactly turn out…! 🀣 πŸ€“ β˜€οΈ So yeah, enjoy this super weird picture of me. πŸ˜‰

Well, after driving for most of the day, we finally arrived!

The mountains around their house are so pretty!!! ❀️ β›°

While there, my friend Carolina (Caro) came for a visit. It was so awesome to finally be here after being friends online for quite a while! πŸ˜€ We had a lot of fun together!!! πŸ’•

Caro and I!

We took LOTS of pictures. I’m only showing you a few of them, haha!

Love this one!!!

And of course, we had to take at least 1 silly picture. Or 35. But I’ll save your guy’s sanity, and only show you one. πŸ˜‰

Caro, Ruthie and I!
Abigail and I!

More fun pictures!

And more….!!! πŸ˜€ ❀

On Friday, we went to church, and my dad preached and led singing. πŸ˜„

After Church, we (SURPRISE) took even more pictures! Haha!

Caro and I! (well, our hands at least…!) Haha!

While we were there, my parent’s celebrated their 19th anniversary, and my Grandma, Aunt, Sisters and I set up a date night for them in the bedroom. πŸ˜€

I made this cards to put on their table. (And it was my first time using a real calligraphy pen, so that was super fun!) πŸ˜€

And yeah, I think that’s about it!

And, I just realized, I have no pictures with my grandpa, or grandpa! (How did that happen?!) 😲 Well, I love you very much Grandpa and Grandma, and I’m sorry I didn’t get pictures with you guys. To make up, I’ll just have to post this pictures from another 2019.

(I love you, Grandpa and Grandma!!) πŸ’–

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. It was an awesome, super fun trip! ❀

Love,

Rosy πŸ’– 🌻 🌈

May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

Standard
May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

Hey everybody! I’m finally here with my May Bujo set up. πŸ˜€

This time I again tried to cut down on pages, even more than last time, to save pages and make my journal last longer. πŸ˜‰ I did the whole thing in only a few pages! Thus, the whole set up didn’t take me as long as usual to complete, and I like it that way. (Because I don’t have time to spend 5 years working on spreads for one month. Haha!) 🀣

May’s theme is…..

Butterflys!!!

I’ve been wanted to use this as a theme, well, ever since I bought some really pretty butterfly sticker on amazon. πŸ˜‚

And yeah, let’s just get into it!! πŸ˜€

The May cover page is similar to my April cover page. I just liked it so much, I had to do it again! I really love how it turned out – it looks so cheerful and spring-y!! πŸ’™ πŸ¦‹

Next up, are my goals for May, my word of the month (Servant), habit tracker, and mood tracker. I told you guys I was using less pages! Normally, each of those would take a whole page, haha!

Now we have maybe my favorite page (it’s tied with all the other pages), my book tracker, and a Line a Day. (Where I simply write a line about my day, each day.) πŸ˜€

A few more trackers (Social tracker, Bible Reading, and Goals and Rewards. And yes, I know that I haven’t finished the Goals and Rewards section. Still trying to think of rewards! Any ideas???)

After that, the only spread left to share is my daily spread. Super simple and functional. πŸ˜€

And that’s it for my bullet journal this month, folks! I hope you guys enjoyed!


And there’s just one more thing I wanted to add in. This has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this post, but a few days ago when I posted my April Recap, I missed something very important! Some thing that was a lot of fun, and I don’t know how I ever could have ever missed it! Lol. XD

So I’m just going to call this section, April Recap, Part 2. πŸ˜‚

Around mid-April, our family went with another family up to the mountains to visit another family. (Ok sorry, that was a slightly confusing sentence! Just read it again, until you get it.) πŸ˜‰ LOL!

We went with the Garcia family, and we visited a man named Juan and his family, who lives a few hours away, far from civilization. (Well, not really far, but it feels far since it takes so long to get there because of the roads, lol!)

We got there for around lunch time, and we brought hot dogs for lunch. We used our special invention to cook them over the fire. (our special invention being chicken wire, which we lay about 20 hot dogs on top of, over the fire, to cook a bunch of them at once and save time!) XD If that didn’t make sense, see the photo below. I’m sorry, I’m bad at explaining things. LOL! πŸ˜‚

After lunch, we all decided do go on a hike. We drove a little ways to a good starting place, and then off we went!

The Mountains are so pretty!!

Selfie with my water bottle. Why? I don’t know. All I know, is that it was gone in like the next three strides, and I had no more water the rest of the way. LOL!

On the way, we came across this wall/cliff made of white sand. Everyone else probably thought, “oh, a wall of White sand! Cool, and bye.” but Lizzie and I thought, “Oh, a wall of white sand! LET’S CLIMB IT!” So we did.

(And I definitely did not rip my skirt twice in the process…. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now) πŸ˜‰ 🀣

We got stuck half way to the top, and couldn’t go any farther because there were no branches to hang on to. So we did the next logical thing, and slid all the way to the bottom (Filling our shoes with dirt) and into the tiny stream below (thereby filling them with water. THEREBY! We were muddy.) LOL! πŸ˜‚ 🀣

After walking 37 miles (or 1 1/2 I guess maybe), we reached our destination – a small (but large for the area) pool of water. πŸ˜€

After spending a little while there, talking and wading in the water *trying* to catch the fish, we headed back.

(And I most certainly was not so thirsty on the way back that I drank some of the stream water.) Hey, it was (mostly) clear!!! LOL! 🀣🀣🀣

When we got back to Juan’s house, we had a little bit of Bible reading and singing time which was great. πŸ˜€

Philip and Me

And there y’all have it, folks! πŸ˜€ It was a great time, and believe me, we got home tired, lol! XD I hope you guys enjoyed the photos, and I’ll see you in my next post! I hope everyone is having a great day. πŸ’•

I’m off to make some cheese! πŸ˜‚ πŸ§€

April 2021, Recap

Hey everyone!

I’m so sorry about my unannounced break from blogging. XD I was super busy, we went on a trip, I was unmotivated for a while, and I just never found time to sit down and make a post. Between all those things, I’ve been gone for almost a month now… In fact, my last post was my March Recap. Oops!!

Anyway, back to the original purpose of this post…. IT’S MAY!!! (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ (Is anyone else as shocked as I am? Comment below) XD

April 2021

~ I got the books in the mail that I talked about in my Book Haul post! (Very quick background story: I bought the book Little Women on a used books website, and it ended up being a very revised kid’s version… So I bought it again!)

This time, it was the original, and IT’S SOOO THICK!!! I love it…. 😍 I’m really excited to read it. (I love thick books!!!)

And I also tagged on two Anne of Green Gables books, since I had a $5 coupon. I’m excited for those too! πŸ˜€

~ A couple pictures from Church.

~I planted a (very) small flower garden! I planted zinnias and sunflowers. I’m really excited for them to come up!!! πŸ˜€ I’ll probably post pictures when they bloom, but until then, you’ll have to content yourself with this beautiful picture of… dirt.

My poor flower bed looks rather forlorn at this point, but don’t worry, something will *probably* come up. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚

~ I sewed a skirt and an apron! I really love how they turned out. πŸ˜„

~ Selfies with Lizzie XD (Believe me, I had to search through the pictures for a decent one that wasn’t too goofy) πŸ˜‚

And honestly, not a whole ton else happened (that I remember at least…..) XD

ONLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY MONTH!

(In case you thought I had no more pictures to show you…. Believe me, I have a lot.) However, I want to do a ful post on it later, so I’m going to *try* and choose only a few to show you for now. πŸ˜‰

~We went to my grandparent’s house this month, and we had a super fun time!! I had a lot of fun with my grandparents, and my aunt, and I also got to meet my uncle’s girlfriend, Carolina. πŸ˜€ I’d been friends with her online for a while, and it was so great to finally meet her! πŸ’–

And I have a TON more pictures, that will just have to wait till a later post. πŸ˜„ It was a great time though! πŸ˜€ ❀️

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!

A Visit with Friends

Standard

Hey everyone! πŸ˜€

Yesterday we went to visit some friends we haven’t seen since earlier this year. πŸ™‚ In fact, here’s a blog post I wrote about last time we visited them! We had a very good time with them. πŸ™‚

We brought and roasted hot dogs for lunch, which was fun!

Roasting Hot Dogs
The moms (and Gracie) talking.
A few of the little kids πŸ˜€

We got to ride horses! It was my first time really riding a horse. It was a blast!! (Yes, I woke up in the morning extremely sore, but… WORTH IT!) 😁 πŸ˜‚

We all enjoyed our time very much! πŸ˜€ And we got very sunburned! 😜 πŸ˜‚ (Again, worth it!) I’m very glad that we were able to go. πŸ™‚
