A few days ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving with friends (two families) who we haven’t seen since, well, last Thanksgiving. We had a great time with them! ๐Ÿ˜€

What are some things you are grateful for? What did your family do for Thanksgiving?ย 

What I’ve Been Doing Lately…

Standard

Lately, we have been pretty busy (as always!) Freezer meals, company, organizing, cleaning… ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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…ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

Before and after…

2019-11-12-1

I really like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Painting

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

My first painting:

I did this one of a cute, tiny canvas my friend, Susie, gave me as an early birthday present. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

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

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 outย quiteย as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s very Fall-y. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Singing and playing guitar with visitors.

So yeah. There’s a little update for ya! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you enjoyed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

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.ย Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. โค

I hope everyone is having a great day!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Life Update!

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on our life, so I decided it was time for one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Quite a bit has happened the last several months. And a lot of good things, and a lot of hard things too. But God has been faithful through it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

So… One cool/happy thing going on right now, is that our friend, Maggie Cyr, came all the way from Arizona to stay with us for about a month! We are very much enjoying our time with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been a big blessing having her, and we’ve had a lot of fun with her! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  โค

The weather has been amazing where we live in Mexico. Lots of rain, clouds, thunder…. It’s all awesome! (Except for the fact the electricity pretty much always goes out every time it rains… Which is about every day during these months… XD )

I went on a nature walk with my camera the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

Read lots of books, including The Hiding Place, and several books by Elisabeth Elliot…

Played piano at church for the first time – that was very fun!

Watched The Widow’s Might with Maggie…

Sang a lot with Maggie, Gracie and Lizzie… ๐Ÿ˜€

And lots more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh, and one more thing that’s happening right now, is that we are finally replacing our bookshelf. It was FALLING. APART. Literally. Like, I can’t tell you how any time we nailed those shelves up when they fell a few times a week… XD So yeah, we are very happy (to say the least!) about the new ones. I won’t go into how hard it was to actually get the bookshelf standing upright because it was slightly too tall, and our ceiling is shorter in some spots, and higher in others… Lol! XD Oh, and we currently have books stacked all over the living room still… XD

2019-09-19 (9)

The new bookshelf. ๐Ÿ™‚ We haven’t finished putting the books back on the shelves, lol!

So yeah, that’s a bit of what’s been going on lately. ๐Ÿ™‚ (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

I wanted to end this post with this quote my grandma sent me. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

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. โค โค

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! โค

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

IMG_2050

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. โค So are all my siblings. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โค

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Which picture was your favorite?

Do you have an adorable little brother? ;Pย 

Happy Birthday, James!

Yesterday was the birthday of my youngest brother, James! I can’t believe my little boy is three now! ๐Ÿ˜ฎย ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ย He’s still supposed to be a baby! I asked him not to grow up, but he didn’t listen to me… Oh well. ๐Ÿ˜‚

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. โค๏ธย Please pray for his family during this time of loss. ๐Ÿ˜”ย โค๏ธย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

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. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Yuuum!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the meal, they cooked up the pig. (The one you see down below.) Hopefully y’all aren’tย tooย grossed out by this! ;P While we were eating, we sat and watched our food’s head dangling in front of us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dad got up and took a selfie with his friend, Elย Cochi. (The Pig)
