Westville...

Well... I am not quite sure if have told all of you this but I thought that it was about time that I did :D I am a Civil War re-enactor. A couple of months ago I went with my mom and our friend Ms. Lora to an out of state Civil war re-enactment... In Westville Georgia :D At this re-enactment we were playing first person... that means that we had to act as if we were in the 19th century... We were even given names... My name was Mary Singer. I was the only girl in the WHOLE ENTIRE TOWN that weekend... there were about seven other young boys there too. I went to school and I went to church, I went visiting with our neighbors and a lot of other thing too. On Friday night at five o'clock the re-enactment *went live* so at that time all of the re-enactors were in period correct clothes and the whole town was acting as if they were in the 19th century :D it was soo much fun. Saturday there were "Modern" people visiting the site... but they all left around 5:00pm, on Sunday it was only re-enactors until 2:00 when everybody started packing up. I think that being a Civil War re-enactor is really fun! You get to meet new people and make new friends... I am very glad that I am a re-enactor. I took a lot of pictures while I was there.

I thought that tis sighn was sooo cool because it remindes me of Anne of Green Gables :D


This is the road you take to the Singer house (our house), at the Yellow building you turn left and there is our little blue house :D ( the yellow building is the school).
I can't remember where this is but isn't it pretty?
This is inside the school..
This is all three of us.. on the left is Ms. Lora, in the middle is Mother and on the right is me :D
This big building is the court house... and yes.. there were horses!
This is inside our car....

I sat in the back :D with all of this stuff.

in 2010 we are going to go back to Westville... I can't wait!

my birthday...

I wanted to tell you guys all about my birthday... so here it is...
around 11am Hope got dropped off and about thirty minutes later, Maggie got dropped ff :D
Next we went out to eat at my favorite restaurant... BOJANGLES! (the sticker on the sign says 'i'm stickin' with the pig' We have a Piggly Wiggly in our town)
After we ate, we went to go see High School Musical 3, but when we got there it wasn't playing until 4:30 so we went to waist time for two hours. We sent shopping at Claires, Aeropostale, Levis and GAP and ate at the Mexican restaurant. I got a lot of shirts at Aeropostale. At Claires, Hope and I got matching earrings :D At the Mexican restaurant we just got a dessert and a plate of fries so that we would not be hungry at the theater :D
After the movie (which all of us think that it was the best of all three HSM movies) we were in the van, and Maggie Doesn't have her Purse... It had her DS and Her iPod and some money in it ... so we went back in the theater to look for it and it wasn't there so then we went to the Mexican restaurant and we found it there :D she was so relived! After our 'adventure' we dropped Maggie off at her house and went back to our house and ate Taco Salad :D YUMMY!
I think that is about it.. OH! That night we stayed up late and watched Brothers Grim :D

I went to go see it with Maggie (my cousin) and Hope (one of my friends). Tomorrow I am going shopping with Jessica and mom for the rest of my birthday present.
I hope to blog soon!

Starting School...

This week we are officially starting school, We had been doing school almost every-day but mom and I were just so busy sewing for re-enactments that I didn't have much time for anything but math and handwriting and a little bit of reading at night. So this week we are going to try to do as much school as possible. I only have one more subject and then I will be done with school for today (other than Reading). This past weekend we went to see the movie 'Journey To The Center Of The Earth' I thought that it was spectacular! I enjoyed every minute of it... I jumped when the big fish came out of the water but other than that... it was good. It was a real intense movie. After the movie we ate at a mexican... so good! Brenna came to the movie with us and since it was so late... when we got home, she spent the night. We stayed up late making videos...they are so crazy. The other day Maggie and I did facials out of a book that I got in the mail and it turned out very good, the recipe is:

Mix:
1 t. Honey
1/2 t. water
1 1/2 t. cornmeal

Let sit for one minute. Plaster and rub onto face. Let sit for about one minute. Honey is an astringent. Not for sensitive skin.

It works Really well.. and after we did the facial cleaner, we mixed baking soda and peroxide to make a paste... and we brushed our teeth with it.

My Commitment as a Christian

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed , my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions
, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised regarded, of rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice , hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up , shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up,
Prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till IO drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me—my banner will be clear!

Spending time with Brenna

This past Sunday I went to Jessica's (my sister in-law) dads house to spend time with her sister (Brenna). We hadn't seen each other since I got my ears pierced and had been wanting to get together for a long time. When I got there we just sat around until lunch time and then we went outside to jump on the trampoline, while we were jumping Brenna Decided to take pictures of us jumping... so we set the timer on our camera and ran to the trampoline as fast as we could:)


Here are some of the pictures of us...


After we had jumped for a long time and eaten and tried to get each other wet we (Brenna And I)( decided that we were going to ride dirt bikes... so we did.... for a long time. And Then we went inside until I had to go.... But we had a lot of fun :D
Amelia

Watching Hayden

Wednesday I was asked to watch Hayden while Ms. Lora and her mom went antiquing, we were also watching Kaylee that day so the two got to play with each other. While I was watching her I decided to take some pictures of her and Kaylee, they were so cute:) I dressed Kaylee up in her princess outifit and she loved it!



Hayden found a pool diving stick and was putting it in her mouth...haha!








Later Kaylee was trying to kiss Hayden, but every time she tried she would end up 'head-banging' her, so Hayden starting running away from Kaylee and Kaylee didn't understand that Hayden did not want to be kissed and started chasing Her:) Then mom started joking around saying ' The princess is going to get me! AAHHHH'


I thought that it was soooo funny:)

Later I took Hayden outside and pushed her in the stroller, she stayed in the stroller FOREVER!

I really enjoyed watching Hayden:) she is sooo fun! I have created another blog with just pictures on it:) check it out:)

Spending time w/ my Cousins

This past week a couple of our cousins from my dad's side came over to visit. While they were here the girls and I made some purses...they were REALLY fun to make. Makayla (the tallest one) did most of hers by herself. They both picked out their own material too. I had started making them little purses but with totally diff. material, I NEVER would have guessed that they would like the bigger ones and such diff. material! This is their little Bro. his name is Caleb, He is sooo cute! While they were here the older kids were making a movie and he kept coming up the stairs during it so we decided that he needed to be in the movie too! I think that Kaylee was a little bit confused though because she is not allowed to go up the stairs :) HAHA!

Today we are watching Kaylee and she is such a handful :) I am watching her right now, she is entertained with a book :) every-body calls her the little French Fry queen because she LOVES them :) I am writing B-rad a letter, I haven't written him but one and everybody else has written him like three or four. I have some big new news, a couple weeks ago I cot my ears pierced. I was soo exited! (thank you dad!)


Well I will Blog later,

Sewing.....

Today my mom and I were planning to sew all day long so we got up really early and I did all of my school. We were almost ready to go upstairs when our power got shut off for some reason around 9:15, to make a long story short we finally got our power back on aroud 11:30 it wasn't such a long wait because a lot of times it is shut off for a bout five hours... we have to wait for the power guy to come turn it on for us.

When we got home from lunch my mom and I went to go sew, I had told my cousin that I would make her a bag for her school books so she picked out some material. That project took about an hour. After that I started sewing my vintage jumper, I think that it is going to turn out really nice.

Tomorrow we do not have Kaylee until like three so I am going to get up early and do all my school, today we got my math books for this summer. I have to catch up a whole grade with math :( Well I guess I will blog later!

Critters






I found this idea on someone's blog and I found out that she had an etsy shop so I could look at them more, I thought that they were so cut that I had to try to make one, well once I did Alex said that he wanted one, so I made another one. At the end Daniel, Alex, Maggie, Kaylee, Becca, and I all had one. I wanted to do something else with my hands so I made a house for it. I also fixed Daniel a room. Some of them turn out looking like a dog...and some turn out looking like a bunny. I made one to Becca for her Graduation party.

Camping Again!!

Yes, We are are going camping... again! So soon, I know! The girls from the keepers club are going to have a camp-out, just girls. We are required to set up our own tent, plan and cook three meals, pack our own things, put away our own things, keep camp 'tidy'....... and I think that is all. We have invited the boys to join us for supper on Thursday night. We are going to meet at Maggie's house at two and start setting up. All of us girls are going to do everything by ourselves except for some of the tent (the hard to reach parts). We are all sooo exited! we can't wait! Have you ever seen the 'Daring Book For Boys'? Well they have a daring book for girls, and when we went to walmart today I found a little handheld one! For only ten dollars! So Hope, Maggie and I all got one. It is a surprise for Maggie and Hope. So I hope that Hope does not read this until after the camp out!!!!!

Have you ever seen the Amelia's Journal books?? like... Amelia Takes Command?? Well today Hope and I checked some out from the library that we hadn't already had, Hope said that she had once tried to do a journal like that but she stopped in the middle of it. So I said that I dared her to try it again, and she said she dared me. So when Mom and Auntie Iris and I went to Wal-Mart together we got some composition notebooks. When we went to the thrift store I found a nail art book, I really like it!

Camp out!!







This weekend we had a camp out... only we didn't think that we were going to. Let me explain... Mrs. Lora and their church were planning on having one for the past few weeks, We were going to go too. It started raining so we decided that we would not go, then later, around 1:00 it stopped raining. But since the church had already decided not to do the camp out we were not going to either. Well, when we got to Mrs. Lora's house, there were other people who had set up tents... So I asked my dad if he would help us set up the tent and Euri, Jay and Dad came and helped us set it up. Here are some pics, we have not taken down the tent yet, Dad is going to help this afternoon.
This morning while we were getting all of the blankets folded
Hayden decided to do a little exploring!
PS- We did NOT have instructions to put this tent up!!

Today

Hi everybody! today we are going to so school, like yesterday :) Maggie is coming at 9:00. Yesterday our Keepers and Contenders club made first aid kits... The girls get one and the boys get one. Our club is going on a camp out this weekend at Mrs. Lora's house (THANK YOU MRS. LORA!!!!!!) and that is part of the reason why we made first aid kits. Us girls have already made our packing list and have gotten our flash lights new batteries, and... Daniel and I have gotten our wallkie talkies new batteries as well :) We are hoping that we Will have my uncle's three bedroom tent, then all of the club could fit, because Josh and Hope do not have their own tent. We have been painting our shop this week, it is nowhere near done, we have a lot of paint spills on the floor, but it was fun! Jessica does not have to work today so we do not have to watch Kaylee, But she might come over and hang out some. Well, Gotta Go.

BEAUTIFUL HAIR!!
Normal Wesley
Wow this is amazing!!
Aren't I Pretty??


Yea! Wesley had all of us laughing!!!! it is sooo funny! Last weekend we did a civil war re-enactment, we got there at 9:00 and set up. We demonstrated games and we showed the spectators the books that they would have used in school, Mrs. Lora, Wesley Daniel Hope, and I all went. We ate a period correct lunch, it was very fun!! Hope and I showed how to make rag dolls and all the little girls loved them! I am going to post a slide show that has a lot of different pictures on it! While we were showing a little girl how to make a rag doll she asked, "Have you ever worn clothes like mine?" Hope and I just laughed! Mom wasn't able to go with us because she didn't feel well, but she and Alex came to visit later. After we did the re-enactment, we went to my grandmothers and jumped in the swimming pool. It was FREEZING!!!

That is all for now!!

Kaylee......

Hi Guys!! I am just checking in and I wanted to tell you all the news!! Kaylee is going to be a sissy!! I am soooo exited. I can't hardly wait!! I am going to be an aunt...again! Kaylee is getting to be so big now... this morning she saw the cats and started whispering "cat kit cat cat cat kit cat" it was sooo cute. I am doing school... I just got done with math and grammar..... I am hoping to watch some movies I borrowed from my grandmother. My favorite movies of all times...GIDGET!! Maggie and I have been outside in the shop cleaning it up almost every time she comes over... and hope has too! I started some Zenias in our new flower boxes dad made for us. I can't wait to see what the look like. We have to watch Kaylee almost every day this week except for tomorrow... but we watch her in the afternoon most days, so our school will most likely be done by time she gets here. And Maggie is coming all day Thursday and all day Friday. We now have a PCA news leader blog... go and check it out sometimes... I am starting it because We wanted to have somewhere where Daniel and Alex could show what they have been doing, and because I have always wanted to start a mini newspaper thing... haha. I am going to try to post all in black and white and so it will look like a real newspaper. So if you want to check it out just look HERE and see what we are up to! Gotta Jo...
