Pizza making party!!! πŸ˜πŸ•

~It snowed! XD We thought most the the cold was mostly over, but we had another cold snap earlier this month, and it snowed a super tiny bit. ❄️

Being silly with my little brother XD

Playing Catan 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!

πŸš™ πŸ›£ πŸ‘Œ πŸ€“πŸŒ… πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ β†’ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ˜„ 😎 πŸŒ„ πŸ’Ÿ 🧒 πŸ˜‚

We got ice cream there! Which again, is not normal, and was a VERY special treat!!!! Dad and I got a Reeses Overload, and the girl’s split a Strawberry Cheesecake flavored one. SO DELICIOUS! 😍 πŸ’–

March Recap

Standard

March was a long month… A lot of crazy stuff happened, as I’m sure you know! πŸ˜‰ It wasn’t a bad month though. A lot of good things happened too! And I haven’t been bored even the tiniest little bit either…Β  XD

when-you-find-out-your-nomal-daily-lifestyle-is-called-quarantine-meme

Yup. XDΒ 

But yeah, boredom isn’t a thing for me. Life has been mostly normal for me personally, except for church. (So sad!!!)

Mom had her 40th birthday this month! πŸ˜€

I organized bookshelves a couple days ago… Whew, that was quite a job! Lol! ;PΒ 

I have also been doing a lot of art lately, and started learning to draw people, which has been lots of fun! πŸ˜€

2020-04-06 (1)

I drew this picture of my friend, Kyra! πŸ˜€

I also painted my sketchbook cover, and even though it could be better, I love how it turned out! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

Sketchbook

Another exciting thing that happened this month was our church’s 4th anniversary! Well, technically it was last month, but we celebrated it this month, right before the quarantine started. πŸ™‚ Here is our church picture (minus a couple families). πŸ˜‰

2020-04-06 (4)

So yeah. It’s been a pretty good month for me, despite all the crazy stuff that’s been going on. πŸ˜€

And, I shall end this post, with this very deep and thought-provoking meme. (JK) XD

2020-04-06 (7)

Have fun at home, ya’ll!! πŸ˜‰

P.S. I just realized I should do a post with the ultimate list of boredom busters and stuff. I never truly get bored, but I always love reading those anyway and trying out the ideas. What do y’all think? πŸ™‚Β
