Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! 😉

For the last while I have been trying to find a good day for a Fall photoshoot, but each day has been too cloudy and rainy… Yesterday afternoon it was finally clear enough to get some good pictures!

I started out with a few pictures taken at our house.

And, I just got some cool new shoes, which I love, so…. Consequently, there are now quite a few pictures taken of them. But, I won’t bore you with all of them. Just three of them. XD

After that, I wanted to drive to an apple orchard nearby to take some pictures there. So I went and took my sister, Gracie, with me! 🙂

Little Brother Photoshoot

Standard

Hey guys! So, I know I haven’t done very many photography posts lately, but that’s because I honestly haven’t been taking very many pictures for a while. It’s because I’ve had… well, what you might call the photographers’ version of Writer’s Block. So Photographer’s Block I guess. XD um, is that a real thing? xD It should be.

Anyway, thankfully I’m getting over that now. So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my adorable little brother James, and I love how it turned out! He is THE cutest, bestest, sweetest little bro anyone could ask for. ❤ ❤

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! ❤

James, 2019, 8

Aww!

James, 2019, 15

I love his face in this one!

James, August 19, 2

He was laughing at his brother Philip, who was in the tree. 😉

❤ LOVE THIS ONE ❤

James, 2019, 4

This smile is sooo great!

James, 2019, 13

James, 2019, 14

Aw!

James, 2019, 10

Love this kid so much! ❤ 

James, 2019, 18

James, 2019, 9

Aaaaah, his blue eyes!!!!

Bonus picture:

So, during the photoshoot, I asked James to reach up into the apple tree, and pretend he was picking an apple. I did that, and Philip said, “Take a picture of me doing that!” So he reached up into the tree to pretend to pick an apple, but the apple accidentally came down in his hand. We weren’t technically supposed to pick any apple yet since they weren’t ripe, and this was his face. XD XD

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. ❤ So are all my siblings. 😉 ❤

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. 😉 I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! 🙂

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

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. 🙂 So it wasn’t so bad. 😉 We did 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!!! 🌳🌲🍃 It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks. 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! 🙂 And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’t wait to see it!! :D😁

See you soon! (Figuratively speaking.) 😉

What? How is this even possible? I mean, it was just Christmas… And New Years…. And now we’re 1/3 of the way through the yer! 😮 Well, I’m not complaining. YAY FOR SPRING!!!! 😀

Here is an overview of the month of March at the Marr house. 🙂

Ummm….

Uhh… I know something must have happened last month.

I realized that I haven’t posted much photography lately, sooo… I’ve decided to fix that! 😛 😀

So, for starters, my uncle gave my a camera that’s so much better than my old one! (Thanks sooo much Timothy! 😀 ) And he taught me how to use it, and I’ve been totally loving it! 😀 😉

My friends Karen, and I. Oh, and Andy. Apparently, he thought this picture needed him. xD

So, for the last several months I’ve been teaching my friend, Karen, school as there isn’t a school here for her to go to. Here mother is our maid, and comes to our house to help out with chore twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. So, on those days, Karen gets her lessons! Usually it’s just her I’m teaching, but sometimes  I have up to 4 or 5 students! Like on this particular day, when I had 4… 😁😂

Did any of you see the lunar eclipse last night (Jan 20)? It was so cool! I didn’t any good pictures… for four reasons. 1) It was freezing and I was barefoot. 2) I was shivering and that kept shaking the camera. 3) The dogs kept jumping on me. And 4) I didn’t have a tripod. So anyways, here was the best I managed to get. 🙂

Random Topic #6

This topic is actually a question.

Ok, so awhile back (Like, a looong while back), I did a committee story here on my blog. (If any of y’all are clueless, here’s the rules. Oh, and thanks to Anna W. for writing these up for me like, a looong while back! xD)

Here’s how it works. I post a story starter and y’all pick up where I left off by commenting with the next part of the story. Please write only a paragraph or two at a time and wait to add on again until someone else has. Try to keep the story moving along nicely, leave plenty of mystery and suspense for the next person to write about, and I will finish the story once it has come to some sort of ending. (Please make sure your writing is God honoring and appropriate for young ages. Please avoid all magic, gross violence, children being rebellious, and anything else that contradicts God’s Word.) You can read each new addition here in the comments, and then I will post the entire story, once it is complete, for everyone to read! Be creative and enjoy!!!

So, I was wondering what y’all thought about doing another one sometime in the near future? I think it would be so fun, and that we could write an awesome short story together! If I did one of these, do you think you would write for it? 🙂

Thy humble servant, 😉

Rosy 🌹

P.S. This was a bit of a long post, so here’s a cupcake for you if you read through it all! Also, if you comment below, I’ll give you a cookie… (Virtually of course, lol! 😉 😜)

Should I do more of these “Random posts”? Did you get to see the eclipse? Do you like goats? And what do you think about doing a committee story here on Rosy’s Writings?

 

Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Standard
Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Despite having such a strange title (Especially that last part…), this post isn’t as weird as it may seem. In fact, there really is a such thing as a water bottle hairstyle, although I’m not sure that that’s the official name for it…. Anyway lets get started, with the goat rides. Yesterday evening some friends came over to…

Um, wait, a minute, I think I hear Mom calling me. Wait right there! Don’t move a muscle, I’ll be back in a jiffy… or two… Don’t go away… *Voice fades away*


*5 minutes pass*

Ahem. Excuse me, but I don’t think that Rosy will be back any time soon, so I have decided to take over finish this blog post for her. In case you don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself. I am… well, I don’t really have a name right now. But anyways, I am Rosy’s trusty camera! Rosy has thought about naming me, but so far hasn’t found a name that hasn’t sounded totally cheesy or plain weird. I have a few ideas, but am unable to tell her, since I don’t speak English. I can type it, but not speak it. Yet. 

Anyway, let’s get on to the real reason why I’m here. Goat rides. I should know about this, since Rosy used me to photograph the whole, crazy event. I honestly cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would want to ride a goat. Humans. I’ll never understand them. 

It started when some friends of the Marr family who were traveling through, came over to visit, and spend to the night in their guest house. After visiting (In Spanish, a language which I can’t understand!) in the living room for an hour, all the children 11 and under went outside to play. This happened to include the riding of a goat. Ugh… Rosy apparently thought they were cute, because she grabbed me, and ran outside to take picture of them. That’s what she always does whenever she sees something cute. Believe me, I know.

p1030705

 Guys, she took waaaaaaay more pictures of that than what I just showed you! I’m only allowing you to see the very best ones, since most of them are embarrassing – they’re so blurry with such bad lighting, Ugh. She always does that to me…. :/ 

After she had finished with that, she was randomly inspired by the sunset, and ordered all of her siblings and their little Mexican friend to stand on the wall in front of it, to which they willingly and happily complied. (Wow, that was a long sentence! Especially for me!!!)

pizap.com15467446223861pizap.com15467449401591pizap.com15467448132251

I personally think these are the best picture that she took all day! 

After the company went to the guest house to get ready for bed, Rosy got inspired again  only this time it was for a hair style. She grabbed her sister, Bekah, and ran to another room with a brush, comb and strangely enough… And empty water bottle… Unfortunately  I can’t tell you what went on in there, since she left me in the living room alone. :/

However, when she came back, I was horrified and utterly shocked at what I saw. Behold:

p1030763 

Crazy? Yup. My thoughts exactly. She really liked it, her sister tolerated it, and everyone else thought it was hilarious. But she didn’t ask my opinion! 😦

After all that happened, the day was over, and they all got ready for bed. 

Uh oh. I think I hear Rosy coming back. Please, PLEASE do not tell her I was here!!! She might never forgive me for ruining her blog. (At least, that’s what she would think about it… I personally believe the world would be better if it were run by cameras.) But she’s coming, so I really need to go. YOU NEVER SAW ME!!!!!


 

Okay, guys, I’m finally back. I’m really, really sorry, but I don’t think that I’m going to have time to tell you what I was going to tell you about the goats and hairstyles and stuff… I’m so sorry! Maybe another day, okay?

Oh look! I just saw one my siblings run past wearing a towel on her head for a hat! She was so cute! I’ve got to get a picture of this! 😀

TTFN!

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 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!

Doesn’t it look kind of like snow?

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
