Well, Not much has been going on recently! :) The past few days Mom, Jonnah, and I have been cleaning out and organizing all the closets in the house. Not my favorite job but I am SO glad it is done! We also went through the scrapbook stuff that hasn't been booked yet and organized it by year. That was a chore. :D Today is a chill day with really nothing going on. Mom is making Lishy's birthday present, the kids are playing duplos, The kids are mowing the lawn, and I'm vegging. lol. 
Sunday was Jason and Gavie's birthday party here at the house. :) They had already gotten their gifts so we just had good food, sang happy birthday, and hung out. :) Me, Jonnah, Tabbi Hamp, and some of the kids all went out to pet the horses that afternoon 'cause one of them had gotten out and had spent the weekend in out yard. :D So while they were all hanging out at the fence we went out to pet them. :) Anywho, That was when a lizard wet up the leg of my pants and caused some excitement and That was an adventure.....
I am SO excited about tomorrow! Tomorrow some of us kids get to go help Aaron and Jen move into their new apartment! I am so glad that they are moving back. :) I have missed them a ton! I'm so excited to see how big Li'l Della has grown. ^_^
Friday is orientation at orchestra. :) Last Friday was awesome. :D It was review and auditions for returning students and  I got to hang out with my gang of girls all day. :D It was so much fun getting to see all of them again! <3 <3
Blogger is acting up today....On my blog list it's not showing me ANY new posts even though I know that people have posted more recent than it is showing me. And on top of that it is showing me ancient posts from weeks ago and saying that they are ALL from 2 days ago. grrr......And it made me upload every single picture one. at. a. time. yep. Blargh. OH well. :D <3 Here are a couple pix from Sunday. <3

And I have to put up one more from a couple weeks ago that I took.  Alejandra edited it for me and I *love* it!! <3 <# <3 ^_^ luvluv!

Just Life...

Hello! <3
My hands are FREEZING!! lol. This old Beast of a laptop overheats if there is not a fan blowing sideways over/under the keyboard. So mom has a little fan set up to blow right over it. And it freezes my hands. After a while I eventually have to warm up my hands 'cause they are so cold that I am making typos all over the place! :D
So, This week (until Thursday), Dad, Micah, Nathanael, and Samuel are gone to Arkansas to help my Gramma out at her place with some yard work. It is so quiet around here! lol. And I only made like a 3rd as much food for lunch with all those guys gone!! lol. It is kinda weird....Until Thursday it will just be Mom, Me, Jonnah, and the little kids at home. :)
Summer break is ending!! :( I am sad. lol. I am not really dreading school (which is strange for me!! ^_^) But I do love Summer. This Friday Orchestra starts up again, then next week is school. :P I am really happy about orchestra though! I love it lots. And I will have a job again which will be awesome. I get to babysit the darlingest little girl on Fridays!! She is such a sweetie! And this year she has learned how to walk! I am excited to see for myself how much she has grown!! <3 <3
*pauses to blow on icy hands*.....
BLARGH!!!! The right-click button on Mom's mouse is broken so I can't open any new tabs on here with out clicking half a million times! And I have to findout how to click it just right. Just regular clicking doesn't work.
I got to babysit my nieces Lishy and 'Laina and my nephew Nedward last night! They are such dolls!! Neddie is learning how to talk and has the cutest voice! And Lish is so grown up! lol! I was putting Neddie to bed and needed to know where his diapers where so I asked Lishy and she told me that they were in the dresser. Elaina's diapers where in there too though so she had to come over and explain to me that the little diapers were "'Laina's Boppies" and the bigger diapers were "NedNed's Boppies". It was so cute!!!!! <3 <3
*pauses again to blow on icy hands.....*
I'm gonna git! My hands are so coooold!! I'm just gonna post a picture that I edited this afternoon then prolly go find some food 'cause my stomach is growling at me. <3 <3 <3 luvluv!!! <3 <3 <3

thunderstormish weather...

I absolutely love rainy thunderstorm threatening days!! ^_^ It is kinda dark outside with quiet thunder every once in a while, the wind is blowing the trees, every now and then you can feel a raindrop and everything is lovely. This kind of weather always puts me in the mood for walks. And playing my guitar. :) lol. I love to play my guitar outside in this kind of weather. Maybe that is odd but it just sounds so awesome with the trees and thunder!  I just got in from a walk and now I am sitting here chillin' with a cup of coffee. <3
Anyways, later today is Gavie's birthday party!! I can't believe he is going to be a whole year old tomorrow!!! :o <3 <3 He is getting so big! <3 <3 Tomorrow is Jason's birthday as well!! :D We are having a birthday party for both of them next Sunday.
I'm gonna upload some pix from my walk this morning, then I need to hop it so that I can take care of Ethan while mom is gone. ^_^ <3 <3 <3 luvluv!! <3

Silver Dollar City!!

Sunday was SDC day! :D Our family (home ppl. ^_^), The Bakers, The older Mitchell kids, The Hardin Girls, and Joshua and Tyana all went to Silver Dollar City for Moonlight Madness! They were open until 10 PM! It was so much fun! Powder Keg is AMAZING at night!! So was Wildfire and The Barn Swing! ^_^ We all had a blast! We were there until past closing because we got in line for Powder Keg at about 9:50 and we were in line for at least 20 minutes. We left the park at around 10:45 and didn't get home until past midnight! After we got home I took a shower before I went to bed. I didn't get to sleep until sometime past 1.
Monday morning I slept until TEN!! Which is INSANE for me!! I never sleep that late even when I sleep in! Sleeping in for me is usually 8:30! Yesterday seemed so short because I slept so long! It has just gone by so fast. :) I spent most of the day helping with house clean up and sorting through, cropping, resizing, and uploading pictures! :) I made a new album of old pictures on mom's facebook and I am going to upload some from our trip to the City on here!
I can't believe July is ALREADY gone.....It is so crazy. This year is going by insanely fast!
Oh!! Mom bought a new camera today! It's nothing fancy. Just a Sony Cyber-shot like the other one we had. 'cept it has High Def video. :D I am THRILLED with it though. lol. I have been so tired of trying to take half decent pix with that horrid little Kodak we had! lol. ^_^  
I better put up some pix and sign off. Have a fantastic week! <3 <3 <3
