May 2021, Recap

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry this is late… very late… I will try my best to do better next month! πŸ˜‚

Anyway, May was a great month! *Tries to remember what even happened* At least I’m pretty sure it was. It’s been 12 whole days since May, and you can’t expect my brain to remember that far. πŸ˜‰ Let me just find some pictures, and maybe that will refresh my memory… πŸ˜‰

Ok, I’m going to start with the highlight of my month… Earlier in the month, our family met up with some amazing friends of ours, the Petzolds, in El Paso! They drove all the way from Arizona, which was amazing. We had a blast with them!

James and I, on the road.

We went to a park, where we visited, played games, soccer, and sang together. So much fun!!

❀️❀️ One of my favorites!!

I laugh whenever I see this picture, because it looks like Annika has a mega long arm 🀣

LOL!

Mr. Petzold got ice cream for everyone, which was DELICIOUS!! I got cookies ‘n cream…. YUMM!!

Eating breakfast outside the hotel, and saying our sad goodbyes….

And yeah, that was an amazing and SUPER fun time!!

~I cut (and layered) my own hair. I really like how it turned out! (And yeah, it’s slightly curly…!) 🀣

~Video called my friend, Carolina. πŸ˜€

~Started making friendship bracelets. So much fun!!

~More random pictures…! πŸ˜€

April 2021, Recap

Standard
April 2021, Recap

Hey everyone!

I’m so sorry about my unannounced break from blogging. XD I was super busy, we went on a trip, I was unmotivated for a while, and I just never found time to sit down and make a post. Between all those things, I’ve been gone for almost a month now… In fact, my last post was my March Recap. Oops!!

Anyway, back to the original purpose of this post…. IT’S MAY!!! (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ (Is anyone else as shocked as I am? Comment below) XD

April 2021

~ I got the books in the mail that I talked about in my Book Haul post! (Very quick background story: I bought the book Little Women on a used books website, and it ended up being a very revised kid’s version… So I bought it again!)

This time, it was the original, and IT’S SOOO THICK!!! I love it…. 😍 I’m really excited to read it. (I love thick books!!!)

And I also tagged on two Anne of Green Gables books, since I had a $5 coupon. I’m excited for those too! πŸ˜€

~ A couple pictures from Church.

~I planted a (very) small flower garden! I planted zinnias and sunflowers. I’m really excited for them to come up!!! πŸ˜€ I’ll probably post pictures when they bloom, but until then, you’ll have to content yourself with this beautiful picture of… dirt.

My poor flower bed looks rather forlorn at this point, but don’t worry, something will *probably* come up. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚

~ I sewed a skirt and an apron! I really love how they turned out. πŸ˜„

~ Selfies with Lizzie XD (Believe me, I had to search through the pictures for a decent one that wasn’t too goofy) πŸ˜‚

And honestly, not a whole ton else happened (that I remember at least…..) XD

ONLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY MONTH!

(In case you thought I had no more pictures to show you…. Believe me, I have a lot.) However, I want to do a ful post on it later, so I’m going to *try* and choose only a few to show you for now. πŸ˜‰

~We went to my grandparent’s house this month, and we had a super fun time!! I had a lot of fun with my grandparents, and my aunt, and I also got to meet my uncle’s girlfriend, Carolina. πŸ˜€ I’d been friends with her online for a while, and it was so great to finally meet her! πŸ’–

And I have a TON more pictures, that will just have to wait till a later post. πŸ˜„ It was a great time though! πŸ˜€ ❀️

In April, I….

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’–

YUUUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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˜„

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.

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. ❀

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