This week in action... (I guess we could say A.W. for another week but that's getting old, isn't it?)

Warning! These pictures will be in no sort of order and I honestly can't remember what happened on which days.

But...some of the Parkers (Mom's twin sister's family) came down this week since Uncle Chuck had some stuff to do down here and...they had planned on being here Monday through Friday...however! The ended up leaving just this morning! They'd left yesterday morning, but had to return because of a traffic issue in Montgomery. So we got to spend just a little more time with them...which was wonderful, of course.

I apologize for the oddly timed pictures. I was hardly thinking of taking pictures this week and forgive me. :P

Anyhoo! OH! OH OH!!!! My computer is coming home all happy, safe and RESTORED to health tomorrow. Woot woot and praise The Lord!!! :D (Yes...I am quite happy about this.) A friend who we knew when we were little (er) has grown up to be quite the techno guy and he'd fixed Em's computer...and offered to look at mine and he manged to save everything on it and restore it completely! I am SO happy and thankful. I'd finally gotten myself to think right about the matter and smash some perspective into my too often pessimistic brain (working on getting better at that...) and ended up finding out that all is well in the end! So...yes! Lord willing, I will be able to blog more often now! I'm back on Dad and Mom's computer right now.

Anyhoo! Yes! Hope y'all had a wonderful day celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord!

Keep on smiling and shining for Christ! :D

One day, the four of us "big" girls went to town. But first! We went down to Tates because they had this crazy awesome deal going on....chhhhocolate. :D

They also had lemon drops. Something I haven't had in almost a year...I didn't get any though. Last time I had some of these things...I had enough to last me quite a while.

Sarah got a Lady Bug Pillow Pet. She name her him Marius because he's red and black! (You'd have to see Les Miserables to understand.)

 And...I AM trying really hard to work on being far more positive than I have I really think I should refrain from commenting on this picture. (As you can see we are holding Justin Beiber's perfume.)

The most American store in the whole country...Ulta's Makeup/beauty shop. 

Sarah and I found it rather interesting how much these characters captured the difference between her and me. :P

In Target...Sarah and I observed that this guy's stare is a little more than creepy. :P

Ah, yes...totally love the shades. 8-) ( won't be seeing me in these anymore.)

Morning faces. :D (Yeah...we drank a lot of coffee this week...)

I thought this picture was adorable. :P I think she's reading the ingredients on the back of a Java Monster (FTW).

Oh! We rented and watched "Safe" (again) since the Parkers hadn't seen it.  And we had ice cream...but since we also had soda...I made a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream coke float. It was actually really good. 

Hard work watching people get shot on the screen.

And we did a BBQ one night. Don't let that scary face scare you...

He's really just a teddy bear. ^_^  (I had a picture of Uncle Chuck and Dad grilling together but I don't know what happened to it. :( )

Oho! Yes...we had a new addition to the farm born this week and the timing was perfect. We all got to stand around and watch the entire birthing!
It's a little bull calf and he's rather adorable running around. I'll have to get a picture of him all cleaned up and dry later on. :)

We also went to M.P. Surplus and I couldn't resist this T-shirt.  Not the grunt style saying...the star. :P

Headed to church this morning!

Lydia, Sarah and I all rode with Uncle Chuck and Aunt Connie in their spiffy Honda mini van.

 And that wraps the week up! We did other stuff...mostly just enjoyed hanging out till 1-2 almost every morning (*cough*) and chilling.

 Before I go though...Sarah and I have been wanting to sing a song together so we threw together a duet version of this song REALLY fast...we only did two takes...the first one we stopped because of a timing issue...but we got it pretty well in the second take. It was a lot of fun. Sarah's got such a pretty voice and we both love the lyrics to this song. :)

I'm so behind on garden work! I was going to do it this week but that just didn't happen. :P Got some more stuff to plant and I still have six garden beds that are in just terrible shape to clean out...I know what I'm doing all of this week!

Anyhoo! Hope y'all are having a wonderful Lord's day! We are all just hanging out...Em is being an absolute saint and cleaned the kitchen (gah, she's so awesome to do that. :P I offered to help and she told me no! Ha! Cool sister, huh?), I'm obviously blogging...dah parents is napping whilst the minions get their spiritual minds into gear on the wii (forgive my sarcasm. :P ) We'll probably just hang out the rest of the day...Eli should be calling this evening so we can talk for a bit...I can't wait. Then...tonight...who knows what could happen! :P

Y'all have an awesome day! Keep smiling and shining for Christ! :D

Photo-shoot with...the Windsey!!! (a.k.a...Sarah. a.k.a Awesome...etc.)

Allllrighty!!! Anna and mah Cuzter (which means...cousin...but so close that she's like a we call each other...cuzter! Savvy?) Oookay...moving (are you reading this in the Russian accent in which I am speaking as I type? would be strange...if you were. But now...I bet you are!)

Okay...moving on take two.

Sarah and I were incredibly boreded today...dat mean in your language...we were bored.

Take three?

I imagine I could ramble again we just go to moving on take four now instead of later after more time is vasted (yeah...I'm still talking the Russian...yes...accent. THe one that's Russian.)

Okay! I say...take three hundred.

Sarah! The one next to me...we...she and We did a photo shoot. Like...where we shoot at pictures. No...wait...kidding...I am kidding.

We...take pictures. Ourselves. WE. The two of us. Me, myself...and Cuzter.

We take lots of pictures...but we just edit (yes...still in the epic accent here) and share few.

So! loveliness number greatest. Sarah. The awesome. (Also...the terrible...but since her Mommy will probably see this...we better just stick with awesome. a good way though. Yes....moving on number I've lost count.)

Okay! So...if this post make no makes more to you sense than it does to me.

Cheers! Keep shining and smiling for Christ! :D

<3 SARAH <3

YouTube Channel


Just letting y'all know that I have started posting on my YouTube channel. Nothing fancy at all...I'm just doing it this way just because it's WAY easier to do it like this than the other way since I don't have my computer. I can do it all from my phone with this nifty app I got! Takes foooorevah to upload...but that's okay. :P

Anyhoo! If y'all want to hear the new songs I do, you can subscribe to my channel since I won't be posting them here every time I do a new one. And song suggestions/requests are always welcome! Just leave a comment on one of my videos. :)

Just click the link below to seem my channel. :)

My YouTube Channel

Y'all keep smiling and shining for CHRIST! :D

Over and out for now!

A.D. (And I've lost count)

Weeell! I'm on Mom and Dad's computer right now. My computer was hacked, so it just seemed fair to hack theirs!

Okay...not really. But I am on their computer. :P

Anyhoo! I have come to a conclusive conclusion (you like that? I came up with that phrase mahself)...that my computer did NOT have a virus and was NOT hacked until "Microsoft" called me. And now...yes...I was stupid. I'm the first to admit it. My computer is terribly hacked and has a terrible virus on it. It's depressing if I let it be...but I just aint letting it be! :D we know...I'm going to be calling the REAL Microsoft to tell them that someone is posing as them...they may know already...IDK. I'm still mad about the whole thing but in a calm way. lol.

And! So, yes...I'm on Dad and Mom's computer for the moment to do a blog post of a the last couple of days. Didn't get too many pictures and they're out of order...but they're pictures none the less!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful week! Keep smiling and shining for Christ! :D

Sunrise...Thursday morning (I think), looking out my bedroom window. It was SO much prettier IRL. 
Haha! Dad got this mug for Mother...I think it's just perfect. And the lady actually looks like Mom lol.

Oh! One big deal is that Em cleaned out the growth from behind our bedrooms...I liked the feeling of the vines and stuff, but I walked back to my room and she'd already whacked most of it down. So...the clean look is nice too. :)

Got this picture of my window. :)

Been doing a lot of coloring with the little girls. Crayons are so awesome. 8-)

This is from today...we went to Tates Grocery down in the town we used to live in . (got my stash of chocolate replenished.  :D )

Had a Mountain Dew for the first time in...what felt like forever. Then I realized... it hadn't been forever. :P 

Ooooh, this was at Tates and I wanted to take it and a spoon and sneak out to the car...but I didn't.  :-/

And to wrap the pictures up; a banner I found and love. I really...really...really love the "Keep Calm and..." posters. A lot. They're so cool and awesome. :) Kinda a small and strange obsession of mine. :P
Hope y'all have a wonderful evening! Micah and I were gonna watch Black Hawk Down, but I don't think we're doing that now...I reckon I'll go clean the kitchen...straighten my room and maybe Micah and I will pick out another movie or something. 

The weather is terrible humid and wet!'s only terrible if you look at it that way. I actually love the rainy weather when I'm at's super cozy. I just don't like it when it feels like our house is going to blow away lol. 

Anyhoo! Hope y'all have a wonderful Lord's Day tomorrow (I really can't wait for tomorrow. Happy things happen on Sunday.). :D Keep smiling and shining for Christ!

Over and out for now.

P.s. I have no idea how often I will be able to blog...but I'll try to keep up as much as possible. :)

Another song

Yep...did another song. My brother asked me to do this one so...I did.

Doing videos like this is way better than the way I was doing it before. So much easier. Takes longer to upload but that's okay.

Anyhow! Here ya go!

Keep smiling and shining for Christ. :)

(Again...copy and paste the link. :-) )


Well, I recorded a song that I've wanted to for a while now. One of my favorite songs that I think does a great job of putting into words how glorified God is when we are broken and fall to our knees to praise Him in a storm. Plus it's pretty music.

Anyhow! I always dislike sharing a song because I always think I could do it jut a bit better. But! At some point I just have to be satisfied. :P

Feedback would be great if you have any thoughts. :) thanks so much!! Y'all have an awesome evening!! Keep smiling and shining for Christ. :)

I hope the link works...can't figure my phone out. :-/ I think you'll have to copy and paste the link. :)

On hold for a while this time

Hey y'all!

Just letting you know that I probably won't be able to blog much for a while.

Whether by honest hacking or my own stupidity in believing a scammer.... My computer has been hacked and is unusable for now. I don't know when I'll be able to get it back up so...yep!

I'll try to blog in my phone some...just doesn't work as well and is kinda a pain. :P

Y'all keep on smiling and shining for Christ!! :D

Over and out for now. :)

A.D. 16

A day late...yes...tis true. But old news is still good news. Not much changes around here lately, so it really won't hurt things. :P

Honestly can't remember much that happened yesterday other than what is documented in these pictures!

Sure hope y'all had a wonderful day today with lotsa smiling and shining for Christ! :D Keep looking up and remembering what really matters in life. I find that when you find yourself worrying and stressing or just does wonders to just shut your brain down and only think about what really matters. Which really is a small, simple and rather freeing list. be da pix! :D

Started out by making bread...

Micah doing school at about 8 in morning. 

Micah totally has the coolest to mine. 8-)

Then it was time for hot chocolate and reading again! 

We picked out a book for me to read outloud to them and chose quite the long undertaking. But w'ere all enjoying it and I'm glad we're reading it. It's not the kind of book I would read by myself...but it's so fun to read to the kids and they're really liking the story. It's hard to read because it's written in older English and has no quotation marks when people talk! It doesn't start a new paragraph either for dialogue, so I've been developing quite the outloud reading skills...even more-so than I had before. :P 

It might not be the prettiest chair...but man, oh man! This is just about the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. 

Minions doing stuff while I read. 

And then they're back to school.

Naomi and I colored again.

Then we rebuild America. And it wasn't so hard. I don't know why the government has such a hard time. 

Naomi wanted a I pulled out my old weaving loom that I used when I was little and strung it up for her. We didn't have any yarn available so...I took a long piece of fabric and tore some thin strips from it and she used those to make a little rug! 

Here we have "Old Faithful". The boy who will do just about anything I ask him to...and then we have...

and then we have the peanut gallery. 

Naomi with a pearler bead project. 

The kids went outside and played volley ball later on while I made dinner. 

Yummy, right?

I used the bread from dinner the night before and made some seasoned bread crumbs, then soaked the chicken in a mustard-ish batter. 

Very important roots. 

Some of the best potatoes I've made. I put onions and ranch dressing and other spices in them along with some sour cream and milk. 

Micah in his bee suit that I called the Redneck Astronaut. 

And this is the urban beekeeper. :P 

Em and I ran to get Dad and Mom some stuff from town. :)

And a shot of part of town. Love this place. :)

That's it, folks! I'm behind on blogging, I know...IDK if I'll blog today tomorrow or not. Maybe just blog tomorrow. Gonna be Micah and I at home all day...the rest of the family is going away for the day. Then I'm going down the street to get briefed on how to take care of someone's cats while they're on a trip. Fun, yes? :)

Y'all have an awesome day tomorrow! Keep smiling and shining for Christ. (A little grinning would be good too...)

Goodnight, everyone! :)
