Baby!!

This post should have been done earlier, but time has not allowed…
The News is…
I have another nephew!!!! Yes, Dallas had her baby on March 27th, 2013, at 5:08pm! A beautiful baby boy. He is so quiet – opposite of Liam! They named him Elias and his birth weight was 8lbs 3oz and he is 20 inches long. He is absolutely precious and we have been to see them every day since that Wednesday! I love being an aunt!! Of two handsome little boys =)
I was present at the birth, and it was such an amazing experience!! So amazing. I am so thankful I was able to be there and part of it! =) Dallas was only in labour a couple hours – from 2:30 till 5 when he was born. And it went really well, praise the Lord!! What a blessing He has blessed us with! I do have a couple photos – they aren’t the best, especially the third one, but it gives a better view of his face. Hopefully Dallas will send us the good ones on her phone =D These are just from my camera.

Hello!
I seemed to have disappeared from here again…very sorry about that. I haven’t really had a whole lot to post about, nor much of the time, but I will try to get better at that. :)
I don’t actually have much to post about now either…well, I could tell about the honey-blow-up yesterday, and some answers to prayer :) I also could share photos of some hair. Well, not some hair – my hair, but done in a certain way. Nothing special or hard. Believe me, it would be an amazing day if I ever posted photos on a hair style that is fancy and complicated on my own hair… :D
First, I suppose I’ll start with yesterday’s ordeal. It was the Azure truck (organic food group – my Mum is in charge of one of the groups) and we’re still sorting it out with the new truck driver – timing has been somewhat difficult, but it’s sorting itself out. Before we went in for the food truck (it drops off in town at my sister’s) we of course did our normal morning things, school and the like (well…I did not do school…don’t tell anyone) and in the morning, as I was having my Bible time, I was asking God to provide what I needed (lettuce for guinea pigs, chicken food, and cat food). So there’s that detail. We went along with the morning routine (haha, as much as a routine can be had in this house on Azure day) and soon went into town. We had a few errands to run before the truck came, so we went to the thrift store, and guess what was in the entry way? Lettuce! Free. God answered that prayer immediately, and it was and is a HUGE blessing. We continued on with our few stops and then headed to my sister’s. First, there road workers on their road, so it was barricaded off, but that wasn’t too much of an issue – we were able to get the truck in. We began to unload the truck, and that is when the trouble really began :D You see, one of the packers had packed honey on it’s side. Bad idea. It exploded and ruined a ton of stuff. It of course got ALL over the stuff that was in the same box, but it also go on just about everything else. Including a huge bag of rolled oats, and a 50 pound bag of baking soda. That last one belonged to my sister, and thankfully the contents were fine. The oats on the other hand…well, the honey ripped open the bag, so there were oats spilled, and honey just everywhere. It truly was a mess. And since it was warm out, it was a muddy mess as well! Haha, it is funny to think about now, but it truly was a mess yesterday. Mum had to call the gal who ordered the oats and see if they still wanted them – they didn’t. And this is where I begin to smile – God provided free chicken food! Quite an ordeal for chicken food, huh? But hey, I am thankful! The mess did get sorted out yesterday, and it could have gone way worse. It was a long day, but we survived :D We did have honey all over us though – in our hair, on our coats and gloves, shoes, and I stepped in some with my sock.. :P Thankfully it washes out!
As time is cutting short on me here (I’ve got to head outside and feed all the critters) I will post pictures now.
Okay, so to explain the following photos: after I showered one day, I wrapped my hair in a tight bun above my head, while it was still wet, and wore it all day and over night. This was on a Saturday, so I’d take it out Sunday morning. I have tried this once before and it was crazy – my hair exploded that time :) But I was hoping it would be a little tamer..Mum does it and it works really nice once she takes it out; it’s wavy and pretty. My hair is super thick though and takes eons to dry in the bun and then when it is taken out…well one never knows what may happen ;) But I did take pictures. So, here is a not so good picture of my hair up:

And then the end results:
(Oh and this is a new dress!)

They’re here!! {Elf Ear Cuffs Review}

Yes! My beautifully astonishing elf ear cuffs arrived in the mail yesterday. I am ever so pleased with them! I must calm down a little to present a proper review now :)

As you know, I am reviewing a pair of elf ear cuffs, provided by the owner of this wonderful Etsy shop:

iusb_760x100.10173809_tk64

The owner, and creator of these ear cuffs, Kimberly Nichole, was so extremely kind to provide me with a complimentary pair of ear cuffs to review. She was ever so wonderful throughout the entire exchange of it all! I personally put a lot of weight/stock on kindness, and hers was amazing!

Here is a photo of the ear cuffs:

And these are the pair I received:

In all reviews I write, I want to be as honest as possible (and those of you who have read my reviews knows this is the case). Even when it comes to little flaws or anything, I find it important to give my honest opinion so this review shall be that as well. I can say though, in all sincerity, there has been no flaws or mistakes in these ear cuffs that I have found! I was a little concerned about how they would feel against my ears once on, but now that I have worn them for a full day, I can honestly say that they fit very comfortably, and securely. You can tell they are crafted with care and love. They are very well made and plenty sturdy. They truly are a work of art and I am more than satisfied!
I highly recommend Kimberly Nichole’s Etsy shop, Woodland Wire Works and her service.

I spent much time looking at various pairs of elf ear cuffs, and as you will find there are many out there to choose from. But personally,
out of all of the many beautiful and diverse ones I saw, these were the ones that stood out the most to me. And I can happily report that these ear cuffs are even more lovely now that I have seen them in person. :)

I couldn’t be more happy and satisfied with Kimberly’s work; she obviously has a gift for this and it shows!
Thank you, Kimberly, again for all your work and kindness! It is so appreciated, and may God bless you!!

Elf Ear Cuffs

Hello and Merry Christmas Eve Day to you!!
I was going to try to do this post on Christmas day, but I don’t know if I’ll have time tomorrow, so just figured I’d do it now :)

As said in title, this post is mainly about elf ear cuffs. The ones I was so hoping to review haven’t worked out thus far (though I’m hoping maybe that will change…we’ll see) CORRECTION: I have just found out that I will indeed be able to review the pair of elf ears I so dearly want, and am SO thrilled and excited! The gal said she will try to mail them out soon, so a review of some of the most gorgeous-est ever elf-ear cuffs will follow shortly after I receive them!

My wonderful Mum made me an elf-ear, recently. It was the practice one, but turned out really well, I thought! It is for my right ear – she measured it against that ear, as I currently cannot wear something on my left ear due to an…ailment of that ear that God is teaching me on :) (I have not tried to wear it on that ear, at least. It may be fine.)
I took some photos, and so I will share them with you!
First, I will show the ear piece itself:

So, there it is! I love it :)
As much as I’d like to make this longer, I am short on time, so I must depart. But I wish you all a wonderfully Merry Christmas; may you all be blessed richly!!!

The Hobbit, Duluth, pictures, and more :)

Good Sunday morning to ye all!

With The Hobbit movie out now, I’m sure many of you have seen or even possibly own your own pair of elven ear cuffs, or other beautiful styles of ear cuffs. I saw one on a gal’s blog as I was passing by, and absolutely fell in love with them. After seeing them, I went on Etsy and found many beautiful, and elegant ear cuffs ( the elf style particularly caught my attention!) I am hoping to review a pair very soon, and share pictures of them if possible, to show you all how gorgeous and fun they are, and to make you want some too! :) They truly would be a fun accessory for anytime wear. At least I think so! I was thinking how neat they would look when I wear my long green shimmery cloak :) See, can’t you just imagine elven ears to complete this look?:
Elder photos 674

So, check back, and hopefully (God-willing!) I will be able to share photos of the gorgeous elf ear cuffs!

Now on to recent news…

We just took a trip up to Duluth to visit family for an early Christmas, and I did actually get some photos of BentleyVille – which is a festival of lights – and also of a lady’s house on the Point whose yard is all decorated with lights as well. So, I shall try to share some in this post!
Before I do that, I wanted to say quick, that I know I mentioned in my last post that I was hoping to share my thoughts on the movie, The Avengers, but I have decided not to do that at this point, because everyone has a different opinion on it, and it often ends up in an argument of opinions, which is never a favourite of mine… :)
Okey-dokie, here are the pictures now :)
First we’ll start with pictures from BentleyVille – I have more of those, because we did that first, so by the time we got down to the house on the point we were all really really cold!

And here are photos of the house on the Point:

And that is all for pictures. Like I said, I didn’t get many on the Point because it was so cold. :)
Our visit in Duluth was nice, as always. I do so love Duluth. At my grandparents house there are many critters, mainly because my grandma feeds them, and so while up there we got to see two large deer right in her driveway, eating out of a bird feeder, as well as rabbits eating bunny food that my grandma leaves for them ^.^ We almost came home with a stray cat she has tamed, but it didn’t work out.
Anywho, there are the pictures!

Donkey Pictures!

Long over-due pictures. We got a donkey on Saturday, which has been so fun. Miss Kitty is her name, and she was our neighbours. We were able to walk Miss Kitty down (wearing some kind of orange apparel since hunting season began that day. Even Miss K. had an orange coat spread over her ^.^), so I led her while Noah rode – cute. It was fun. She is now in with my mule, Adora, which is nice!
Okay, here are some photos:

Miss Kitty is a tiny thing, especially compared to ..well, all the other horses and mule!

She hugs!

My funny girl, Adora
Okay, if you have ever seen “Little Dorrit” this picture might seem funny to you, too. I had to laugh, because, well, it is like the exactly photo on that movie, only with a donkey, instead of Amy Dorrit XD

Alrighty, that is going to have to be it for now. Maybe more later!

Not the greatest picture of me (XD) but I love it, because Miss Kitty is so funny. :P

Never Too Old

 

Nice first thing to see yeah? ;) One is never too old to dress up. Now, shall I explain this? Well, you see, I went into Noah’s toy room/closet to look in the dress-up bin for some moccasins (which I didn’t find right away) and found our “Napoleon Dynamite” wig. Then a bonnet. And then I decided, “Why not dress up and make Mum and Noah laugh?” So, I did. And above was the result :D

My sister wanted a photo with me, of course. ;)

So, that was a fun day…

What other photos can I share with you?

(because….bum..bum..bum…we found a camera at a garage sale for only $5 and it’s 10 mega pixels, and my old USB hook up works! Praise the Lord!)

Above: My elephant collection! Not the best photo, but it’s as good as I can get. I looooooove elephants. The feather in the picture frame is a peacock feather from India – I had a dear penpal there that sent it to me :) The postcard on the top corner of the frame is from the Cincinnati Zoo, as are the two photos of real elephants to the left of the frame. Oh and then my soft-ball photos are up there, because they have no where else to go :)

And one last photo; my book collection:

Dressies

First, Happy Father’s Day to you! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your Dad’s :)

I’ve got some photos of dresses I’ve been meaning to share, but haven’t gotten to it for various reasons. We’ll see if I can get it to work today though!

(Above: Notice how freaking low it is? Man, it was shocking. We got the dress at a garage sale, and we were at Dallas’ afterwards, so I tried it on, and I didn’t even want to come out of the bathroom XD So, we found a shirt to go under. :P)

(Above: I felt a little ‘funny’ in this one – like a “homeschooler” ;) Haha!The knives helped me be more me, though, so it was okay.)

And this following one is my favourite. It makes me feel…oh I don’t know. Fairy-tale-ish, but not quite the right word…Elven-ish?

I love the dress though. I got a little sick of being in dresses after a while, but this one I could wear all the time. There is just something about it. Twice I was told it is a very “Rae dress” if that means anything. ;)
Oh and just a little note: If I’m not wearing my knives, it means it was Sunday. But of course, if I am, it means it’s not Sunday. :)

There has been quite a bit that I could be posting about lately, but I just haven’t gotten to it.
But this week is going to be a grand week. Yay!!! Going to be meeting a penpal (Yippee, RaeAnne!!!) at MOA, then my family will be heading up to Duluth and I’ll be meeting two other penpals too! So much fun to look forward to!! :)

And then this past week, we got to tour the Tabernacle. It was so cool. If you have the time, look up “Messiah’s Mansion” – it’s an amazing ministry! I really really really loved going through it. Seeing so much passion was beyond amazing, and just a great reminder to never settle for less! The passion of both tour guides we had (we went through twice) was really great. Our first tour guide was a older gentlemen who was so sincere, and knew his Bible so well – he was great. Then the next day we got a young man, and he was great too. He focused a bit more on Jesus and His call to mission, and of course, I loved that! He was so on fire though; it was so encouraging! I wish I could be surrounded by more people like that; so in love with the Lord!!

“La-de-freaking-da”

Well, hello. I’ve got some photos to share with you. As some of you might have understood by know, we have been cleaning and working on the house a lot lately. And all in order for the baby-shower held here for my elder sister and her adorable wee baby, which is tomorrow. Three rooms have been painted, the windows trimmed, the dining room floored (rather a big project, but it only took Dad and I two days.) and cleaning like mad. My guinea-pig/writing room was one of the fortunate rooms that was painted. It is lovely. Here, instead of trying to describe it to ye, here is a photo:

And here is a photo of the room with only a few pieces of things in it:

And a photo of my type-writer specifically:

So yes, we’ve been cleaning loads. A lot has gotten done.

I was going to share some more photos of my nephew, but it’s not working…bummer. He is super adorable, and looking older already!!
