Been sick, but I hope to update soon! Hope ya’ll had a merry Christmas!


More of my life in pictures!

Hello! I hope ya’ll are doing well! I’m here to give you an update on what’s happening as well as some pictures! I need to leave soon for cantata practice… and if the pics take a long time uploading, I won’t get this posted ’til later. Anyhow…
School is going pretty well. We’re done ’til ’09 except that I have one science test left. Mom hasn’t had time to grade anything yet, so I don’t know how well I did. I feel pretty good about most of it, though.
Here’s a look at what we do in our spare time:

Hmm… I had a couple more pictures of some 1000 piece puzzles we’ve done, but I can’t find them. Maybe later.

While we do 1000 piece puzzles, Seth is busy in other ways:






I need to get going! But I’ll sure have more pics later! If you want to see pictures from our youth group Shoppers in Disguise and Christmas party, go here:


Okay… so when I comment on other people’s blogs, the pic is a million years old. (Well… that’s a small exageration) Anyhow, I’ve changed it a few times and it shows up as changed on my blog, etc. But when I comment on other people, it shows the old one still. What is up with this? Does anyone know how to fix it? I’d be oh-so-grateful! Thanks!

P.S. More pics soon! And an update on how things are going. But right now I’m trying to finish the semester of school. 😀

Playing Doctor, Baking Muffins, and just lovin’ life!

Here are some pics from Seth and I playing Doctor the other day. I have no idea WHAT I had, but I was SICK. Thanks to my brother, though, I’m fit as a fiddle now!



Love the glasses!



Isn’t this sweet??



The patient. lol





“You’re better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”



“No! You can’t leave now! I want to keep playing!”

Later in the day I made some muffins:












If anybody wants the recipe, let me know. They’re really awesome Sour Cream Chip muffins!!!! MMMMmmmm…


Friday morning it was 4 degrees outside when we left for quizzing, and there was a cool sunrise. Pictures never do it justice, though.






On the way into town Saturday, Seth all of a sudden piped up and said, “Emily! Guess what?! I love you TWICE!!!” I looked back to see what he meant, and this is what I saw:



And last, but not least, I was in the nursery on Sunday morning and got a couple pictures of… I forget whether it was Alex or Zoey… when she helped herself to Lindsey’s lap.


(Alex and Zoey are twins… and I think that it’s Alex standing and Zoey in the chair. :D)



Isn’t Lindsey SO adorable???? All of the little girls are, actually!!







So… I took more pics than this, but I’ll save ’em for later. Actually, I don’t know what in the world I’m doing posting twice in one day!

I joined twitter today. It’s cool — you should do twitter, too!

Oh, and I “typalized” my blog. This is what the response was:

“The analysis indicates that the author of is of the type: Performer

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

They enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions. “

I’m totally enjoying my camera!

I love my camera! It’s the most awesome thing that has happened to me since… I don’t know when. The only thing that could make me any happier right now would be if I could pass – or even get 100 on – my science test tomorrow. hehe

Here are a few of the many pictures that I’ve been taking!


Is this not scary? I wish I knew what was going through his mind… Any suggestions for a caption?


Our piano…




This not-so-great pic of me is courtesy of Seth.


Anyhow…. Now for something fun! Go here and test your spelling skills! I’m usually a pretty good speller, but I only got 64% on it.
