Our Trip to Coahuila

Standard

*Note: Don’t read, unless you love pictures. There’s gonna be a lot on this post!*

On Monday, December 23, my family bundled up in the cold to drive to my grandparent’s house, in Coahuila, Mexico. We stopped for lunch in Torreon, Coahuila at a restaurant called Pizzaria La Sierra.

Lizzie and I both drew Dad’s portrait on napkins while we were waiting for the food… XD Neither of them look anything like Dad, but at least mine was more realistic, lol!!

We got to Grandpa and Grandma’s house that night. And we had a lot of fun at their house for the next four days! I have a LOT of pictures…. but I’ll try to limit this post to only my favorites… 🙂

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.

p1030892

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!!! 😀

p1030900

p1030901

Aaaaand, there you have it!

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

Rosy 🙂

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! 😛 

Merry Christmas + New Year Resolutions!

Standard
Merry Christmas + New Year Resolutions!

Merry Christmas, everybody! It’s so hard to believe that Christmas has already come and gone, and it’s seriously ALMOST 2019!!!!! Wow wow wow. I hope that none of us were at all distracted from the true reason we celebrate Christmas – Our Lord Jesus Christ! 😀

Aaaand, here are some pictures from our Christmas… And a video!!!

Video Credits: Music by the Wissman Family, taken from their Christmas Album.

Thanks to my Dad, my brother Andy, and sister Gracie for taking some of the videos so that I could actually be in some of them. . 😛

And now for a few goals for 2019!

My goal:

01

Haha, just kidding!!! (Though that might be slightly true in some cases… 😛 )

  • Read through the whole Bible.
  • Keep track of every single book I read.
  • Read 50 books. (Guys, that seems like a lot, I know, but that’s only 1 book a week!!!)
  • Read 15 “New” books. (Books I’ve never read before.)
  • Write at least 5 new short stories, and finish the novella I’m currently slowly  working on.
  • Finish at least one and a half grades of school.
  • Grow my blog. 😀
  • Grow in my relationships with 1) The Lord. 2) My family. 3) My friends
  • Learn more Spanish. this is also taking so looooong!!!!!! xD
  • Live up to my middle name – Joy! 😛
  • Learn to be more content with where the Lord has placed me.
  • Be more consistent with journaling.
  • Try to get, and STAY more organized. 😉
  • Learn to use my time more wisely.
  • And be thankful for another year the Lord has given us!

Oh, and here’s a poll. I want to know what kind of posts you want to see form me in 2019! SO please, please vote!!!! I would greatly appreciate it!!! (If you’re reading this in your WP reader, you may not be able to see the poll, so you might have to actually go to my blog.)

So, merry Christmas everyone and happy almost new year!!! I hope you are having a great day so far. 🙂

Let’s Talk!

How was your Christmas?

Do you have any specific goals for 2019?

What’s your middle name?

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

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!

I’m Back!!!

Standard
I’m Back!!!

So, we’re finally back from our two week “furlough”. 😀 We had an awesome time catching up with friends and family. In some ways, it seems like we were gone for such a long time, and in other ways it seemed so short. But, we’re definitely very happy to be home again. 🙂 All in all, we drove over 3,500 miles!!! :O It was a looooooooong drive, but worth it! 😀 To help pass the time we listened to Lamplighter Theater and Jonathan Park.

Here are some highlights of our trip.

Kansas

After Arizona, we drove up to Colorado for a couple days to spend time with my grandparents. ❤ And then we drove to Kansas, and stayed at the Cook Family’s house. They were so extremely hospitable to us!!! (After all, we are 11 people…:P ) We had so much fun with them!!! 😀 Playing flashlight tag and kick the kick the can, boating on the pond, and going to the zoo… It was a BLAST!! 😀

Elaine Cook did a photoshoot of Gracie and I. I really think she did an AMAZING job!!! (Even though she won’t admit it… :P)

Oh dear… xD

Especially Susy! 😀

I am planing on making a video about the whole trip, as well, though it may take a while until it’s finished. I have a few other videos I need to make first for my Mom, and they need to be a priority. 🙂

In Christ,

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. 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! 🙂

Our Trip to Colorado, Part 1

Hello people! 🙂 How has your August been so far? For us it has been great! (So far, of course!) Dad had a birthday, which you can read about here. 😀

So anyway, you may have also read a while back that we were going to Colorado. And I said I would vlog ( video blog) about it. Well, after quite a long while, I finally have the first three videos ready to post!!! 😀 The 4th (and probably last) is still a WIP, but will be up soon. So here’s the first video, and stay tuned for the next one very soon!!! 🙂

 

Hope you enjoyed, and tell me what you think in the comments!!! 🙂

~Rosy Posy

P.S. I created a new page called “Guestbook!” so if you would like to sign your name, and tell me about yourself, or tell me about your blog over there, I would love it! 🙂 Have a great day (night!)! 😉

A Condensed Version of the Month of June and July

A Condensed Version of the Month of June and July

Hello everyone! I’m sorry I missed last months update. So, I will make it up, and do the last two months in this post. 🙂

June

 

 

 

 

Lately I have been enjoying “trick photography”. 

 

 

 

 

More photoshoots of my sibling. 🙂

As you may know, if you’ve been keeping up with my blog, we have sold our van, and bought a new one! You can read about that here.

James thought this was so weird!!! Wait, it is… Really weird…

The kids were playing house, and then asked me to take their family picture for them… Susy (3) is the mom, James (2) is the dad, and Bekah (8) is the child, along with a few other dolls. As you can see, the family kind of collapsed in the second picture. And I’m not entirely sure why the mom is sticking her tongue out…

July

Colorado

We went to Colorado around the end of June and beginning of July. We were helping our grandparents with the wheat harvest. I will post more pictures later, but here are a few of them. 🙂

The rest of the month, went on mostly as normal. Then on the 26th of July, we had the Franklins and the Pereanus here from AZ!!! We had an awesome time of fellowship with them!!!! Again, I’m planning on posting lots of pics later, but for now, here are some of my favorites! 🙂

Josh Franklin took this giant selfie right before they left. Not quite everyone is in this picture.

Some of them sang for us at the church in the mountains. 🙂 

Here is a video of Gracie, Jeri F., and I singing Amazing Grace to the tune of When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. We had a lot of fun with this arrangement!!! 🙂

 

 

Well, that’s about it for now! The Franklins and Pereanus left here yesterday morning. The house seems so empty and quiet without them!!! 😦

And here is a fun random question for you… So I was cleaning up some pin needles, and suddenly got inspired for this picture… What is it of/from? Sorry, it’s not a great picture, but… 😉

I hope you all have had a great July!
