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™‚

Trip Recap, Part Two: Arizona Family Camp

Standard

Hey guys! I’m finally here with part 2 about our trip! The reason I haven’t done this sooner is because we went on yet another trip… So I guess maybe I’ll tell y’all about that in part 3? We’ll see! XD

But as for right now…. Here are some pictures of our time at family camp with the amazing Heritage Baptist Church! (Get ready, cause I have A LOT of pictures here!) XD

We got there a couple of hours early, so we took a hike in the surrounding area.

Family camp was AMAZING. We had a blast, and an awesome time of fun and fellowship. LOVE THESE PEOPLE! ❀ πŸ˜€ (And miss you guys!)

After family camp, we went to my friend, Kyra’s, house.

This pictures is proof that Kyra and I have the same brain…. We’re doing practically the same thing in every photo! XD
Doing gymnastics
The mom’s talking

Well, I hope that was enough pictures for you guys! XD It was hard to go through and pick which ones to post, because unfortunately I could post all 800 of them. πŸ˜‰ XD This entire trip was a BLAST, and I’m SO glad it was able to happen! ❀

~Rosy

P.S. Here is a video I made about family camp, where you can see tons for stuff we did! πŸ˜€ hope y’all enjoy!

(Also, here’s a video about our trip to Kansas as well!)

Trip Recap, Part One: Kansas

Standard

Hey everyone! In September, our family went on a 3 week trip to Kansas, Colorado and Arizona. We had an amazing time! That’s also why I haven’t posted much at all for the last while… I hope to pick up on that, now that we’re home. πŸ˜€

Anyways, I want to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip! This post will have some pictures from Kansas, and the next post will have pictures from family camp in Arizona. πŸ˜€


On our first day, we drove all the way from Mexico to Kansas – almost 1,000 miles! It took us about 20 hours. XD We drove from 3:00 in the morning, to around 12:00 at night!

2018 vs. 2020! (One of my favorite pictures from the trip!) πŸ˜€

We spent an awesome 2 days with the Cook family in Kansas! (Thank you, Cooks, for your hospitality! It was a blast! )

Stay tuned for more pictures of the rest of the trip soon! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜„

First off, I want to thank everyone who bought a painting from me. Every single one of your purchases made me so happy, so THANK YOU so much!!! πŸ˜€


Yesterday we got home from a 5 days trip to Arizona (!!!) for our friend’s wedding. (We were only there two days – the rest was driving, lol.) XD The wedding was awesome, and it was also great to see friends. πŸ™‚ ❀

It was an awesome trip, even though we ended getting sick and having to leave a day early. (That was definitely pretty very sad.) 😦  But I am very grateful that we got to go! πŸ™‚ ❀

What I’ve Been Doing Lately…

Standard

Lately, we have been pretty busy (as always!) Freezer meals, company, organizing, cleaning… πŸ˜€

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. πŸ™‚

2019-11-05-5

Birthdays

We have three birthdays in November birthdays! Gracie turned 15 on the 10th, Philip turned 6 on the 11th, and I’m going to turn 16 on the 22nd! πŸ™‚

For Gracie’s birthday, I made her some healthy, homemade Oreos. (YUM.) Man, that was SO much fun, guys! I made several different flavors… Normal, peppermint, lemon, strawberry, chocolate, peanut butter, birthday cake, caramel…Β πŸ˜„Β They were super yummy (I barely managed not to eat all of them) and pretty, and so much fun to make!

Gracie and I get to be the same age for a few days! πŸ˜€

2019-11-12-9

Haircut

Last week I suddenly got this urge to cut my hair. I wanted something different! XD

Before and after…

2019-11-12-1

I really like it! πŸ™‚

I’ve started really getting into acrylic painting in the last few weeks. It’s so much fun!!! I only had a tiny bit of dollar store paint (which I mostly finished), but I want to order some more from Amazon or something. πŸ™‚

My first painting:

I did this one of a cute, tiny canvas my friend, Susie, gave me as an early birthday present. πŸ™‚

 

My fourth, and last painting (So far!):Β 

2019-11-12-7

I painted it on a piece of cardboard because I didn’t have any canvas… XD

2019-11-12-8

This one didn’t turn outΒ quiteΒ as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! πŸ˜€ It’s very Fall-y. πŸ˜‰

Other Stuff

  • I finally got rid of my old school book collection… XD It took me two years collect all those… LOL!

2019-11-12-3

  • James is my babyyy!! *massive heart eyes* (He’s growing about way too fast. XD ) Lol.

  • We have been having fun with Anna Bagwell (Maggie’s cousin). Here she is playing a game with some of the kids. πŸ™‚

2019-11-12-10

Our Trip to AZ!

Standard

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still alive over here… XD Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I guess I just realized that (believe it or not…) there are more important things in life than blogging. (Surprise!) Ok, well I guess I already knew that, but… Lol.Β Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

Last week we traveled to Arizona to visit our friends and home church there. It was probably one of my favorite trips to AZ since we moved to Mexico! It was great to see all of our friends there again. πŸ™‚ I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. ❀

Singing at Chruch

Dad, some of my siblings and I, sang For the Sake of His Name at church. πŸ™‚

Update From the Past Month

Standard

So, the last few weeks have been… Hard. And sad, and good, and fun, and rough, and sweet, and awful, and happy, and terrible… Bitter and sweet. And yeah. That pretty much explains it.

Last week we went to Pheonix, Arizona to attend the unexpected funeral of our little friend, Joshua Young. ❀️ Please pray for his family during this time of loss. πŸ˜”Β β€οΈΒ Here’s a song that has been an encouragement to me over the last few days. Actually, here’s two!

I got to visit quite a few friends in Arizona last week! πŸ™‚ ❀

More singing<3

And in other news family news… We got sick, bought a keyboard and spent 2 days in the car together. (During which, we passed the time by listening to Jonothan Park, and Lamplighter Theatre!)

Also, the peaches on our peach tree are starting to get ripe, which I’m excited about because they are SO. GOOD. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

pizap.com15629759232361

Yuuum!!!! πŸ˜€

So, a few weeks ago we went to the graduation party of someone we know. There was a lot of visiting and food, and all of us ladies and girls spent a lot of time talking, laughing and watching some of the men and boys playing soccer. It was a very enjoyable time. πŸ™‚

For the meal, they cooked up the pig. (The one you see down below.) Hopefully y’all aren’tΒ tooΒ grossed out by this! ;P While we were eating, we sat and watched our food’s head dangling in front of us. πŸ™‚ Dad got up and took a selfie with his friend, ElΒ Cochi. (The Pig)

The women, visiting. πŸ™‚

Well, I should probably head to bed now… It’s almost 10:00 at night here. πŸ˜‰ I think I will post this tomorrow though. I’ll probably be able to check for typos and stuff better after I get some sleep… XD πŸ™‚

Lizzie and a friend’s dog.

We spent a looong time in the car… Like, 6 days worth of driving… Ugh! To pass the time, we listened to a lot of Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and sermons by Israel Wayne. πŸ™‚ So it wasn’t so bad. πŸ˜‰ WeΒ didΒ have a few really carsick kids though… XD

Y’all. I LOVED the South. It was sooo pretty, and I loved the people, the accent (lol!), the trees… And guys, the GREENNESS!!! πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸƒΒ It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks.Β Death to all ticks. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for the ticks, I probably would have moved there. Ok, maybe not quite… ;P XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed these pictures! Keep on the look out for a video about the trip, where you can see all you just saw, and lot’s more! πŸ™‚ And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’tΒ waitΒ to see it!! :D😁
