What are some New Year resolutions you've decided to do?
Mine: .....not sure yet! I guess I just want to:
1. Try to be a better sibling and daughter.
2. Try not to be a drill sergeant.
3. Work on my piano and choir songs more often!
4. I'm not sure but I just don't like ending on uneven numbers!
We asked my grandfather what great wisdom he would like to share with the family and he said:
"Don't eat the spaghetti".
Anyways Happy New Year everyone!!

Dewey (our cat) is really silly about where he sleeps/lays. I know a lot of cats have weird sleeping/laying places so this post will be about cat's sleeping/laying habits!
Lets get started!
Now some pictures of other cats and their sleeping/laying places! (note: I just got these next photos from google).
Just to let you all know I love dogs!!! Animals of all kinds really...but cats they just stare at you and never change their expression. Either way cats are funny when they play and sleep!
See you all soon!
A short post just to tell you all Merry Christmas!!
Every year for Christmas Eve, my family goes to our Christmas Eve service at my church. It is amazing and beautiful. Then we go home to watch a Christmas movie (this year it's The Nativity) - and we have a little bit of eggnog! Anyways Merry Christmas everyone <3
Luke 2: 1 - 20:
Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. 2 This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city. 4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5 in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. 6 While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
15 When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. 17 When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.
Matthew 2: 1 - 12:
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet:
6 ‘And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah,
Are by no means least among the leaders of Judah;
For out of you shall come forth a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.’”
7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him.” 9 After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I know this is more posts then I do in a month but I thought I'd share some winter themed photos with you today! The first three photos are also for a contest!
https://anniewritessite.wordpress.com is doing the contest!
Photos of us cutting down our Christmas tree!
Christmas is probably my favorite holiday! Why? Not because of the presents, not because of the yummy food, not because of the movies, but getting together, decorating the house, and spending time together as a family! I can't wait for my family to decorate the tree!! We cut out A LOT of snowflakes, make Christmas mangers scenes, and make fun decorations for the Christmas tree so in years to come we can remember the past years we did those things together! Don't get me wrong; I love yummy food, Christmas movies, and presents! But I really love my family getting together!
And so as Tiny Tim said (in "A Christmas Carol") A Merry Christmas to us all and
God bless us every one.
Hi! Welcome back! So today I made a manger scene. It turned out well! My mom LOVES manger scenes, so I made one for her, and I'm going to make more for Christmas presents!
Let's get started!
I assembled five pairs of 22 toothpicks, five pairs of 3 toothpicks, and two pairs of 4 toothpicks. I also used three craft sticks. Don't forget the glitter (my mom dislikes glitter A LOT)!! Also, hot glue sticks!
Take one of the packs of 22 toothpicks and line them up. Next, take one of the packs of 3 toothpicks and glue them to the line of 22 toothpicks...that made sense right? Continue till you use up all of the packs of 22 and packs of 3 toothpicks.
Glue the packs of 22 toothpicks (that you had put together earlier).
Glue two craft sticks on the bottom of the barn...unless you're positive your toothpicks are straight and won't bend at odd angles.
Trim down three toothpicks to attach to the inside of the barn floor (you'll see what they're used for in a bit).
While the barn's "floor" is drying, cut two toothpicks in half, then glue the two pieces together to make an X, then cut two more toothpicks into thirds attaching them to both X's to form a manger. Take a white cotton ball and cut it in half and glue it down to the manger.
To make Jesus, Joseph, and Mary: Sprinkle gold glitter on a paper towel, cut a toothpick in fourths and fold those pieces together. Put glue on it and roll in the glitter...to form a baby Jesus (yeah it might sound weird but its cute from far away). For Joseph and Mary, cut a craft stick to make Joseph, cut a smaller piece for Mary. Roll "Joseph" in blue glitter and "Mary" in reddish/brown glitter. Just like the "baby Jesus" (it might seem weird up close but it's cute in the barn). Glue small leftover craft sticks to the bottom of Joseph and Mary so they can stand on their own.
Optional: Make a star to attach to the top of the manger scene. Cut two toothpicks in half and glue to make an eight-point star. Roll in whitish/gray glitter. Glue to the top of the manger.
And there you have it! A small cute manger for a Christmas present idea or a tree ornament!
Welcome back!! So yesterday my sisters and I decorated for Christmas (or started to). Anyways I made Mint Capped Brownie Cookie Cups for us to snack on while we worked on snowflakes and other decorations. The cookie cups turned out really well...so I thought I'd share the recipe with you all!
Recipe for wet ingredients:
2/3 cup butter or margarin, softened
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions for wet ingredients:
First heat oven to 350*F. Line 48 small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) with paper or foil baking cups (unfortunately I didn't have baking cups so I just sprayed the pan really well). Next beat butter, granulated sugar, water, and vanilla in large bowl on medium speed of mixer until well blended. Add eggs; beat well.
With another bowl mix dry ingredients:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Directions for dry ingredients:
Stir together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating on low speed just until blended. If necessary, refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle . Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place in prepared muffin cups. Bake 11 to 113 minutes or until cookie surface is set. Cookies will appear soft and moist. Do not over-bake. Cool about 5 minutes on wire rack. Press chocolate piece into surface of each cookie cup. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
They turned out really well!!
Comment and tell me what you think about them!!
See you next time!
Sorry, I haven't posted in a while, I've been SUPER busy! Anndd because I don't have a topic picked on to post out today I thought I would just tell you a bit about what I've been up to!
Costume designing - So I'm not one to sew a lot, but I thought I might as well help with costumes for The Christmas Carol I'm in. So far I've made Marley's costume (pictures to come later), and several skirts (photos to come later). I'm having a lot of fun making costumes!
The Christmas Carol - I'm one of the Charity worker's "Grace." I'm also a caroler and a townsperson (picture of me in my costume to come later). I'm having a lot of fun working with all 58 cast members and soon getting to know the stage crew.
Piano - I do play the piano! It's enjoyable...I may not be professional, and I may never be professional, but it's still fun to play around on it. The last couple of months I've been playing piano of a nursing home ministry which is fun but is taking up to much of my time, so I'm quitting next month :( This year I'm playing "Deck the Halls" Arr. By Martha Mier it's really cool! Hopefully, I have it finished in time for my Christmas recital.
Church - Some of the teenagers at my church do "Talents For Christ" every year. It's fun (most of the time). We're memorizing 1 & 2 Timothy KJV this year. I'm also entering a stained glass heart with a rose in the middle, and my sister and I are going to sing something for TFC probably. I also make coffee and hot water for morning church (sometimes I make muffins or cookies)! Also my siblings and I are involved in a Club for the kids at our church.
School - School is pretty simple this year! Teaching Texts books Algebra 1, "Exploring World History" by Ray Notgrass (Bible and English are included with History), Science, and music lessons. Plus my mom reads Lamplighter Books sometimes for History! Currently, we're reading The Cross Triumphant by Florence M. Kingsley.
Sorry about the quality of these photos (notice all the fabric and costumes in the background).
Also this past week we went to a college to rent some period costumes for the play (here are some photos from that). Though sadly we didn't rent any dresses just coats for the guys.
Later today I'll be working on more costumes! So wish my luck!! (also I will take a few photos of the costumes my sister and I made).
See you next time!
It dumped about 12 inches of snow on us Thursday! So pretty and fun...but a pain to clear off the roads!
Today I'm going to show you guys this cute pilgrims hat I made for Thanksgiving and how you guys can make it (I know its early, but I LOVE Thanksgiving)!!!
Let's get started!
Take a dixie cup and hot glue a piece of black construction paper to it.
Cut out a round circle a little bigger then the cup and glue it over the opening of the cup to seal it up!
Cut out a long strip of black, a little more than a 1/2 inch wide and long enough to fit around the bottom of the hat. Also, take a yellow piece of construction paper and cut out a piece about 1 inch wide and 1 inch long. Fold it in half and cut it in two places though don't cut it all the way through.
Weave the black strip through the yellow paper and attach them both to the hat - make sure the seams line up in the back.
Take a tooth-pick and stick it through the top of the hat making a hole - take hot glue and secure the tooth-pick. Then take a strip of brown construction paper and fold it into a sign, add the person's name to the brown paper and attach it to the toothpick and you're done!!
I hope you guys had a fun time reading this. I made 11 for everyone coming over...notice the picture below has two hats that have feather-like objects instead of signs - take red and yellow construction paper and cut five pieces of each color out and attach them to the tooth-pick. Then take yellow construction paper and cut out 1-inch square and write the person's name on it.
Note: two of the names are covered up for privacy reasons.
Comment and let me know if you would consider doing this for Thanksgiving!
See you guys soon!
What's your favorite kind of muffin? Is it blueberry, strawberry, blackberry or maybe even raspberry? What about a muffin with all those yummy fruits in it!!??
Once or twice a month I make muffins to take to church for the small coffee corner we have there! Today I'm sharing with you the recipe I use and some of the pictures of the process.
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cooking oil
1 cup of your favorite kind of frozen fruit
1. Preheat the oven to 400*F. Combine the sifted flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in one of the mixing bowls. Stir until well blended.
2. Beat the eggs, milk, and oil together with a fork.
3. Dump the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir five times. Add the berries and stir until just combined. The batter should be clumpy and lumpy. For real. If it's smooth, your finished muffins will be dense. (Yuck.)
4. Fill the cups of the muffin tin two-thirds of the way full, and bake 20 to 25 minutes. The baked muffins will come out of the pan more easily if you let them cool for a few minutes first.
Okay, okay so I don't follow the recipe exactly. I do it a bit differently. I don't put the berries in the batter I put them in the greased pan and then put that batter on top of them. It keeps the batter from turning purple or red. I also use a muffin pan smaller then the recipe calls for so that the muffins are easier to eat. When using the smaller pan, I cut back the baking time to about 10 - 12 minutes.
Note: Make sure you wipe up the batter that leaked over the side of the muffin pan, so it doesn't burn (I don't have a picture of after I wiped mine up)
They turned out really well!!! Comment and tell me if you might consider using the recipe!
See you soon!
Hi Guys!! Today is a short post about some photo's I've taken this past week, which I think you'll enjoy!
Let's get started!
Tirzah with 5 treats on her nose, bright October sun, Tirzah looking confused,
My dad and Tirzah playing, Stained glass heart I made, & Dewey's creepy look.
(he is giving her a hug not choking her)
Who says you can't decorate your Christmas tree with fall leaves and pumpkins?
Anyways sorry for the short post!
See you all soon!
P.S. Don't forget:
Welcome back, I hope you all had a great Saturday!! I know I did!
Today my dad and I finished building our kitchen table. It turned out nice, and I wanted to share with you guys how we created it...
First, we planed the cherry wood -for the top of the table- (my dad cut down the trees himself)
You'd think cherry wood would taste like cherry's...it DOESN'T :(
After we planed the cherry wood (isn't it pretty?!)
Next, we cut out the braces and frame for the table. We then put the structure together.
After the frame was finished we cut out pine wood for the legs (it smelled so good), My dad was super excited about the forest for the legs because it came from our old house!
We cut groves in the legs so the weight would sit more evenly.
After we put braces on the legs and screwed them down, we started to put together the top of the table.
Notice the uneven boards? Using wood vice's we pulled the boards together and screwed the main ones down.
Next, we cut out two pieces of cherry about 41 inches long (the width of the table is 41 inches)
"Why did we put those extra pieces of cherry wood on end?" To help pull all the boards together and make fewer cracks in between!
After that, we sanded and sanded and sanded and sanded...and sanded some more!
Now because we had to screw the boards on we left huge holes everywhere so taking so wood putty, we put it all over the holes and sanded them down.
Finally after all that hard work we could finally put clear polyurethane on it!
And we are done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The table is 8 feet long, 41 inches wide, and 31 inches tall.
Cherry - for the top of the table
Pine- for the legs, braces, and frame
Cost - around 45 dollars (for the screws, wood putty, polyurethane, and cutting the logs into boards)
Time - 2 days
I hope you guys had fun watching our table being built!
See you guys soon!
Note: We did use ear protection and glasses. My dad oversaw any machinery I used. Also for the sake of my stomach and taste buds, I did not eat any wood.
Hi, Welcome back!
So my sister had a birthday recently, and I wanted to share with you the cake she made!
CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM CAKE!!!! YUMMY!!!!!
She took Oreo's and pressed them into the bottom of a greased pan.
Next, she put Breyers chocolate Oreo ice cream down.
Then she smoothed all the ice cream.
Next, she drizzled hot fudge on the first layer of ice cream
(note: picture below is blurred for privacy reasons)
After that, she repeated it again. Oreo's, ice cream, and hot fudge.
I don't have a picture of the finished product. But basically, she used cool whip and colored it different colors and created designs on the top. It turned out well and was sooooo good!!!!
See you soon! And don't forget to comment about the cake!
Hey, ya'll! A couple of days ago my dad and I decided to fix up a porch, and there were soooo many big splinters!
So I have some pictures to show what it looked like before then after.....
So then my dad and I went to the store and bought some new pressure treated wood.
After we put new wood on:
Looks a lot better right? Well because we aren't millionaires and couldn't do the whole porch with new wood. We bought outside brown carpet and put it down.
After putting down carpet:
And that's it for the porch!
Does it look better than before? Comment and let me know!
See you soon!
So today I'm sharing with you all some pictures I took recently....some more recent than others, to be honest.
Anyways let's begin!
The top ones are our outside cats Rascal (orange cat) and Cuddles (brownish gray). Who is half Maine coon, which means they have the cutest big feet through the rest of them is tiny! Soooo cute! The rest of the pictures are just thrown together mixed up photos enjoy!
I have to tell you guys about something our cat Rascal did. A few days ago my older sister was drinking coffee and talking to my mom by the window. She looked out and noticed deer in our garden. She also saw Rascal watching them. One of the younger deer's went up to Rascal and sniffed him. Rascal not exactly pleased about this hit the deer on the nose with his front paw. Which frighted them all and off they went to find another place to eat without cats.
Fortunately, my sister had time to grab my camera and take a few pictures!!!
Sorry about the quality of the photos it was from far away and taken through our window...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
See you soon!
Who doesn't like pizza???? If you don't like it well stop reading and go jump in a lake because from now on you must like pizza to read any of my posts!
A week ago I made two pizzas (they turned out soooo well!)
First I got all my ingredients together: cheese, sauce, bell peppers, pepperoni, and ready to bake garlic & herb pizza crusts.
I rolled my dough out and put sauce, cheese, and peppers on.
With the second pizza I repeated the same process but did half cheese half pepperoni!
I put both of the pizzas in the oven at 425* degrees and set the timer for 15 minutes.
So after 15 minutes or so I took both of them out and checked the bottom of the crust to make sure it was a golden color. I let both rest for 5 minutes to cool down a bit and then supper time! The pizzas turned out well, and the crust was delicious with the herbs in it. You can use whatever kind of crust you like!!
Also, I'm sorry about not posting anything this past week. My family went on a trip to Indiana and on the way back we (my sisters and I) went swimming in a lake. Yeah, it was 60 degrees out and probably not the best idea, but it was a beautiful and fun family memory (even if it was a 1/2 mile walk with no shoes and wet clothes back to the camper)!
See you all soon!

Oh by the way here is a small quote for you guys!
Only put off until tomorrow what
you are willing to die having left
Note: I did not write this quote
I'll see you guys soon!
Munch, munch, munch. Chloe sat there eating her yummy green grass, enjoying the fresh air and waiting for Nutmeg (her best friend) to wake up. Lifting her long black ears up she heard a thump, how odd....well maybe it was just Spot's (the cute boy next door).
Munch, munch, munch. Chloe continued her eating when suddenly a long brown fuzzy thing wiggled through a hole. It was Mr. Weasel!!! Chloe quickly hopped to wake up Nutmeg all the while watching Mr. Weasel to see what he would do. Squealing with fear Nutmeg dove behind Chloe. Chloe willing to be brave for poor Nutmeg tried to bite Mr. Weasel but instead, he bit her in the head. Both Nutmeg and Chloe were squealing and screaming as loud as they could fearing the worst would happen.
Their home went from peace and quiet to fear and chaos. Spots not able to help ran helplessly on his side of the pen praying for the little girl who usually fed them to come and save them. Suddenly out of nowhere their roof opened up and they saw the face of the man who helped build their home. Mr. Weasel saw the man and let go of Chloe and tried to run but the man shot at Mr. Weasel....but unfortunately, evil Mr. Weasel got away lurking nearby hoping to get another chance.
But the man picked up Chloe and took her away....that was the last time Nutmeg saw her best friend.
A few days later a family came and picked up Nutmeg taking her away forever. Spots sat quietly not even hungry to sad to eat. He missed his friends he prayed that Nutmeg would have a beautiful home and would be well taken care of. About a month later that little girl came back bringing a small box with her. Spots wondered what it was. Then the little girl opened the box and out popped Chloe's head! Looking at Spot's she smiled at him!
She had come back!! She was okay!!!!! Spot's ran around in excitement as Chloe was set inside her side of the pen.
Where was Nutmeg?? She missed her best friend and wanted her back so they could play like they used to. The little girl closed their roof and walked away, and Chloe turned to Spots and asked where her best friend was? She cried when she heard Nutmeg was gone. What was she going to do? Who was she going to share her secrets and fears with? Definitely not Spots!!! That was out of the question! Chloe nibbled on a piece of grass and then closed her eyes to take a nap.....
A few weeks later the little girl's older sister came and took Spots and put him in a box. Chloe wanted to know where he was going and if she was going to. So she waited. And waited. And waited. But no one came. Where was Spots????? She ran around in circles trying to find a way out....ouch! She hit her head against something hard and pointy. Not really caring about the pain, she cried out looking for Spots. She was scared, she didn't like being alone. What if Mr. Weasel came back? Who would protect her????
A few days later Chloe woke up alone, scared, and in A LOT of pain! Ouch!! Her head hurt a lot! What was wrong????!!!!! She couldn't move her head! She tried to run but the pain was too much, and she had to close her eyes and stay still because of the pain.
Chloe never did remember what happened to her those first couple of days. All she remembers is how much it hurt to move.
Joy (Chloe's little owner) found Chloe huddled in a corner shaking and cold. Joy picked her up and took her to the house where Dad bandaged poor Chloe's head. The humans then sat down and waited to see if Little Chloe would pull through.
Days of hard work and a lot of pain for both humans and Chloe came and past in a blur. Joy tearfully watched to see what would happen. Early one morning Joy came downstairs and found Chloe eating. Joy squealed with happiness calling her family to see the hero Chloe alive and well!
And to this very day, Chloe lives in a newer, safer cage. Where her owner checks on her every day and keeps her healthy and safe!
This is a true story of my little sister's rabbit Chloe. Although human names mentioned are made up the story is relatively true (although more gruesome details are left out). It shows and reminds us that we need to take care of and love all of His creatures GREAT and small! Also as a reminder, I don't do much writing sorry if this was kinda kiddish!
