Christmas Pictures, as Promised.

Good morning everyone! Here are some of the Christmas pictures.

 The boys were so excited about getting this game. It has been a big hit with the whole family! Me and Anna have played it, and even Daddy likes to watch!
                             Is this the cutest face you've ever seen or what?! He really liked the cool toy from Great Aunt Tiny and Uncle Wayne! Cutie!

Uncle Jason and Aunt Denise sent us this great puppet stage and 4 puppets. It was a big hit. We all planned a little play and did it for Gram and Gramp and Aunt Jenny.
                            When this was happening, Owen looked up at Mom and looked  like saying if he could, Get me out of here before I drown in wrapping paper!
                 Puppet show again. Sorry about the white thing. That's Ethan getting his puppet ready. And this last one is all the cousins at Nana and Poppy's house. Aaron, Alivia, Me,(holding Owen) Anna, Ethan, Delaney,(who was kinda tired) and Jillian.

Thanks for looking at my blog!

Happy New Year!

Twas The Night Before Christmas......

Hello everyone! I know I just posted yesterday about pretty much the same thing, but, I'm so excited! On Christmas Eve, it's so close to Christmas and I know it, that get the jitterbugs. Whatever that is. On Christmas Eve, at about 5:00, at our Church, we always have a Christmas Eve candlelight service. After we sing and Pastor talks a little, everyone who wants to, can go up and get a candle, and light from it another candle. Than, you go stand against the wall and the lights are turned out. It's really cool. But, I'm not going to do it. I am going to stay in the nursery and help, because last year, Aaron got to hold a candle and he was right next to me, and I leaned over to tell him to try to hold the candle still because he was wobbling it, and my hair caught fire from his candle, so, I'm helping in the nursery tonight.

 Thanks for looking at my blog!

Decorations, and now the Tree!

Hi Everyone! Last Sunday, we were are still a little sick so we stayed home from Church and slept almost the whole day and watched movies on the new program that Mom and Dad gave us as an early Christmas present. It's called Roku. It's really cool. You can get movies on Hulu and Netflix and even rent movies from Amazon! How cool is that?! Well, at the end of the day, we were feeling better (and needed something for supper) so we decided, to go get our Christmas Tree! And Daddy was so tired (cause he had just gotten up) he didn't even really dress! Just a T-shirt with a warm fleecy flannel shirt over it, his  coat and gloves and get this, he wore his Pajama pants! Ha! Well, anyway, after ruining our shoes marching through the icky gicky mud, we chose a tree and went in to pay for it. There, Dad and Mom had a glass of Apple Cider and all of us had a cookie. We also got 1 piece of candy and the lady filled little plastic bags with "reindeer food" for all of us except Owen. (It was really just some Rolled Oats mixed with some pretty purple glitter. We are saving them for Christmas Eve Night to sprinkle on the ground for Santa Claus's reindeer.Ha!) Aaron likes Rudolph best. So,we got Subway for supper, got home, ate, had Advent and fell asleep.

Goodbye Thanksging Decorations, Hello Christmas Decorations!

Saturday, we had nothing to do, so, much to everyone's delight, we got the Christmas decorations down from the attic! Sadly, we don't have as many because last year, our Christmas Tree fell, breaking quite a few of our ornaments including Mom's angel. Luckily, the fall didn't break all the ornaments and Mom will get the angel replaced.
Well, thanks for looking at my blog!

Older cards and a Craft

Hi! I was looking on my pictures to see if Mom had added any more pictures of my cards and I found a few pictures from a couple years ago that I forgot to post! The first picture, is of a little Christmas Caroler I made for my Aunt 2 years ago! I painted a card-board tube pink and I used darker pink felt for the mittens. I used one of Mom's marker to make the mouth and cheeks and eyes. I cut up some of Mom's old music for the sheet music. For the hat, I took an old sock and cut the heel and some of the top off. Than, I put one end of the sock on the Caroler's head, and the other end I tied with ribbon. And the others are older cards I made.
Well, thanks for looking at my blog!

I can't wait! Advent starts really soon and Ethan will be old enough to light a candle by himself this year! I can't wait! Last year, we read a book called, Jotham's Journey. This year, we will read a book about his friend, Bartholomew. Sorry if I spelled that wrong. I not exactly very good in spelling.

Hi! Me, Mom and Owen had to stay home from Church today because last night, I got sick. So today, Me, Mom and Owen had to stay home. I was sick once more and then one more time and I didn't have to do any more. Now it is lunch time and I am having some dry toast. Mom said that if I don't get sick when I eat the toast I can try a banana or more toast with something on it. Well, that's all for today.

Halloween Pictures As Promised!

Hi! Here are the Halloween pictures. This first picture is our driver for half of the evening, Senor Juan. His mustache is much better than Ethan's Pilgrim one, isn't it?  The next picture is half of the crew. Daddy as a hunter. Mom said you can't really tell it's a costume in Maine! Our friend, Ilse, the one on the floor next to me was "Cleocatra" The next picture is adorable. Isn't he SO cute! At least he was perfectly warm the whole time! Anna is so cute in this next picture. I love her nose and whiskers! And the last picture is the one Mom likes. Isn't Owen the cutest little rooster you've ever seen?  Mom was a hunter also but the only part of her that was warm was her feet because she had on Daddy's hunting boots. Let's see what we come up with next year! Thanks for looking at my blog!

Happy Halloween!

I can't wait! Tomorrow is Halloween! We will go"Trick or Treating" with our friends, the Milos. Mr. Milo, is trying to attach a trailer to his truck so we can ride in the trailer! Today, we carved the pumpkin. Instead of just a face, we used a stencil of a little scared ghost. I can't wait till tomorrow to post pictures!

Thanks for looking at my blog and  Happy Halloween!!

All Set for a fun, Animal, Halloween!

Yesterday, Me, Mom and Anna, went to a store that sells baby stuff called, The Baby Mama, and bought Aaron an ADORABLE little monkey suit with a top and bottom and a little pocket with a banana in it! For Owen, we got this little cowboy suit with a leather hat and a little velvet vest and little fringed chaps. But, IT WAS TO SMALL!!!! I can't believe it was to small! It's SO cute!! But, since it doesn't fit, he will be a rooster. Ethan is going to be a tiger, using a mask, tail and little bow-tie we got at Walmart. He will wear a black shirt and pants also. Anna, is going to be a bunny rabbit. She also has a bow-tie, little bunny tail and headband with ears. She will wear a light pink leotard with white tights. I, will be a black cat. I also have a black cat mask with ears, and a bow-tie and a tail. I will wear a black leotard with black tights and my new, high-heeled, black shoes. I will post pictures later!

Sometimes, Rainy Days can be fun too!

Today, since it was raining, we decided to have a fun day indoors, learning about The Pilgrims and The Indians, and The First Thanksgiving! So, we got dressed, and went down in the barn and brought up wood, and Mom made a fire and then I made Hot Cocoa and we all watched a Bible Story Movie and when that was done, I read the book called, Squanto and The First Thanksgiving! It tells how Thanksgiving has been celebrated for over 350 years, and how it got started. We usually think right away of The Pilgrims, but it tells how it really got started, with a Patuxet Indian named Squanto. A lot of you, (this is in the book) may not have heard of the Patuxet Tribe. That's because Squanto was the very last Patuxet alive!Then it tells the Thanksgiving story. So, when that was done, we all went up-stairs and got paper, pencils and crayons and drew pictures of what we think a Patuxet Indian would have looked like and then we drew pictures, of what we think a Pilgrim would have looked like! Then, we dressed up and pretended we were Pilgrims. Here's a picture of us dressed up like Pilgrims - or trying to look like pilgrims. Like Ethan's paper "beard and mustache" Anna made him? Hahaha!

N.Y. Here we come!

On Friday, Me, Mom, Anna and Owen, all drove to New York for Mom's Uncle Ajax and Aunt Gladys's 50th Anniversary party. 5 hours in the car with none of those little T.V. things to watch movies on, and no car game we know, isn't a very pleasant way to travel. But, we did stop and get coloring books. When we got there, Mom showed us her house where she grew up and showed us a few other places and then we went to our hotel, and went to the hotel pool, and went to visit Mom's friend, Mrs. Ryan, (we call her Aunt Becky because she and Mom grew up together). She has 5 kids like us, but they are ALL boys. Her oldest, Nathan, was at a friends, and her 2nd oldest went out to some event, and so we had dinner with Her, Uncle Pat, Her 4 boys, Jeremy I think is 12 or 13, Matthew, who is 10, Christopher, who is 4, and Sean, who is 2. Then on Saturday, we went out for breakfast, and drove around a little, visited Mom's Uncle Paul, and then we went to Uncle Ajax and Aunt Gladys party, and drove home which took 6 hours cause we had to stop for the baby.
All in all, we had a great time.

Cute and Funny

Hi! Here are some pictures of Baby O and Ethan making funny faces.

Sunday, August 29, 2010


Hi! As some of you might already have heard, our Golden Retriever, Ruby, has been pregnant! Last week, the day we were coming home from camping, Nana and Poppy, Mom's parents, called. (They had been watching Ruby while we were gone). That morning, Poppy had come downstairs and she had already had 6 puppies by herself. Then she had 4 more, then I called Poppy and she had had 3 more! So now, in the whelping box on the back porch is a Momma and 13 ADORABLE puppies! 7 girls and 6 boys. I think we have 2 runts. A boy and girl. Since Ruby can't feed them all at the same time we split them in 2 groups. While one group eats, the other group sleeps in a box Mom put a blanket in and put the heating pad under it. And she switches them every 2 hours. At night too! Here are some pictures. So ADORABLE!!!!!!!

This is a  card I made  for Children's Challenge Corner challenge #9 - Ribbons and Bows. I used this cute Sophia image from Paper Pretties.  As some of you might have guessed, I tried to make it look like Ariel the Disney Princess.  My Dad said, "She looks a little chubby for Ariel!"  Mom did the waves and the clouds, but I did the mermaid all by myself.  Mom said that there's no way the Magazine will publish my card. Why? Thanks for visiting! Emma.

Father's Day.

Hello. Here is a card I made for the Children's Challenge Corner.. The challenge is to make a Father's Day card. I made a workshop with a work-table, and a hammer hanging up on a nail ( which is really a brad.) and then I made the sign. It says, Carpentry. You need it, I make it. And I put glitter on it. And then to make saw-dust I used some Bahama Beach sand. Which you can find at
