A Quote From My Favorite Musician.

I was reading Adam Young's blog tonight, and found this quote in a beautiful post of his. I really loved it, and decided to post it. =) He is speaking of a girl he saw that took his breath away because she was so beautiful. And I feel exactly the same way about the word "hot". Okay, here's the quote:

'Allow me to pause for a moment simply to clarify that this was NOT a beastly, primal, overly-rugged masculine emotion that took hold of me. I did NOT slobber all over myself via lewd desire like some impudent, lustful, arrogant bro. I did NOT jump up and down and inwardly scream “Woah, that girl is hot!” because it is my personal opinion that the word “hot” has been weighed down by so many repulsive, disrespectful connotations (all thanks to modern media), that it has ultimately become a rather derogatory adjective with which to describe such pure and blameless beauty. It has a devious way of cheapening it and that tends to bug me. Deep Regret and the stunning quality of such unpolluted beauty is far too exquisite and innocent to be associated with such brash crudeness.’

Update.

Thanksgiving is approaching, and some exciting things come with it! First, April, Nic, and Makenzie are coming!!!!! =D =D =D So excited! And, Ensemble is this Saturday night! April and Nic are going to try to get here in time to go. =D And on Sunday, I'm going to play a song for church. I am really nervous! This is the last time I am going to do a song by myself in front of church for awhile! By that, I mean that I am going to be playing THREE duets for Christmas time! One with my friend, Bobby, me on the piano and him on the guitar, one with Mrs. Mary, both of us on the piano, and the last one where I play the piano for the Youth Group girls to sing. Busy busy busy! I absolutely LOVE Ensemble! =D =D It's one of the highlights of the year! I can't wait! Although, I am a little nervous. =/

The photo uploader STILL isn't working! >=( I am very upset about that, and not quite sure what to do about it.

I am writing a new play! Should be.....interesting. But not as crazy as the last one! =O I will give you a little teaser: it involves two stupid criminals. Okay, that's it! Not saying anymore! You'll just have to wait! =D

God Will Repay.

Wow. I just had to tell you guys about this. So, some of you may remember that awhile ago, I posted about attending the ladies conference. At the conference, there was an auction of jewelry to help support a woman in our church who had breast cancer (she is cancer free now! PTL!) Well, I found a necklace that I absolutely ADORED! It was beautiful! Go to the link below to read the sad, pitiful story about it.
http://littlehouseinthewest.blogspot.com/2010/07/super-long-random-postfun-d.html
Bottom line is, I didn't get the necklace, but not in the way that you think, so I encourage you to read the post. =D (just a suggestion, the title won't make sense without your reading the post) =D I would post a pic, but my laptop is still being stupid, and won't access important sites! (a.k.a. Cutest Blog on the Block, Hot Bliggity Blog, and photo uploaders, not to mention numerous other random sites. >=() But, there is a pic in the post. =D

So, today, I was trying on my dress for Ensemble (yes, this DOES fit in!). I wore my long, green one last year and the year before, so this year, I was going to wear a different dress that I had bought last year shortly after Ensemble, a red, sparkly one. It was beautiful, but when I tried it on, I found that the cut just didn't look good on me. My legs are quite thin and long, so short, fancy dresses just don't do it for me for some reason. =/ So, I reluctantly decided to give it to Christy. I talked to Mom and said that I guessed we would have to start dress shopping. She, of course, like I knew she would, said, "Why don't you just wear your green one?" (she loves that dress!) I said, "Mom! I've worn that dress for the last three years!"
Mom said, "Well, why don't you just try it on and see what you think?" So, to humor her, I did. She, of course, said, "That dress is beautiful on you!"
Me: "Mom, that doesn't change the fact that I'VE WORN IT FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS!"
Mom: "You know, that necklace we almost got at the Lady's Conference would perfectly match this."
Me: "You just had to bring that up, didn't you? Why did you do that?"
Mom: "Well, if you had that necklace, would you wear the dress?"
Me: *shrugging* "Sure."
Mom: "Wait right her." *dashes from room*
Me: (by now, I have caught on to what is going on,  and am very happy when Mom arrives back in my room WITH THE NECKLACE!
It is almost EXACTLY the same as the other one! Same colors and everything! I tried it on, and it goes PERFECTLY with the dress! AND IT HAS MATCHING EARRINGS! How could I say no? lol =D So, I am going to wear that dress to Ensemble. =D

Eldarwen Here

Hey everyone! This is Eldarwen. My awesome friend Taylor is away on vacation right now, and she cannot access her blog because her computer is acting up, so she asked me to post for her. :)

She says she's having a lot of fun, and she misses you all a lot! Taylor will be/is taking lots of pictures and she says she can't wait to get back to share them with you! (And I can't wait to see 'em, Tay!;)

I hope you are all having a great weekend! Shabbat Shalom!

(first, I must tell him about it) =D

Crazy Hair Awana Night!

Last night was crazy hair night at Awanas! It was SO much fun! =D

A working progress...

The almost-finished product. =D I'm using some hair extensions that Becky left last time she was here.
Christy's amazing eyebrows! (which I, of course, painted) *bows*

Us at church with our awesome hair! Notice, Christy's hair is painted now, and I have orange bangs.


Look at her arms! Isn't that weird?! This is one of my former students, Vianca. I posted about her earlier this year when she was in my class.


Dad! *dissolves into helpless laughter* Sorry the pic is blurry, but you get the idea.

Ben, my new student. Since there are so many people in Awanas this year, I only have two students, one of which was missing last night. But Ben kept me on my toes!

He can almost just look at a verse, then have it memorized. =O

Kinda blurry. I was trying to get a good pic for my new facebook profile pic.

There we go! =D

And then, of course, my goofy friend, Ryan, the red hair noticeably missing. I didn't recognize him at first. =D We should have had a pic taken together with our hair, but we um, didn't. =/

Well, there ya have it! It was AWESOME! In two weeks, it's crazy glasses night! Woo-hoo! =D

Awesome Song!

I LOVE this song! =D

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Picture Thursday!

Today was Thursday. (as you know) Thursday's can be pretty boring, so today, Christy and I went hunting for a facebook profile pic. =D Which resulted in about a hundred pictures. I took a lot of pictures of her, she took more pics of me. =D If I post them all, then I will feel terribly vain. Please comment and tell me if you would like to see some of them, or would I rather I not. Don't worry, I won't feel bad if you don't want to see them. =D I'll be posting a couple more soon. =D
 
Tomorrow, Becky is coming over! (again!) Yes, she practically lives at my house. And on Saturday, we're going to the Razorback game. But not to watch. To work. Our school (I say "our" because I used to go there, I know everyone there, and I'm still considered as part of the class) has a concession stand so the juniors and seniors can raise money for their senor trip. Even though I'm not technically in the class, they welcomed my help, of course. And I love to work there, so everyone is happy! =D Ryan was going to sit at home and watch it, but I persuaded him to come. =D =D So two of my best friends are going to be there! =D Now, if only Eldarwen could come...... =D

I leave you with this picture.




=D

In Case You are Wondering....and Justin Bieber. (that ought to draw some people)

I removed the roses farther up the page. Now, you may think I did it because I was mad that some people gave me black roses. Well, that's not the reason. I knew that I would get some, and I knew that whoever gave them would be anonymous, but I didn't think that whoever left them wouldn't give me any suggestions to improve my blog!!!!!! >=(  How would you guys like it if someone walked up to you and said, "I hate you" without giving any reason why? I know, that's exaggerated, but still! I don't care if you leave a black rose anonymously, but come on! Leave a suggestion! Rrrrrrggggghhhhhh, sorry, that just drives me nuts. And either a portion of my followers hate me, or there's one person who enjoys giving black roses. If that is the case, that is totally out of line! One will suffice. If you are the culprit, I hope you're listening! If you hate my blog that much, then here's an idea. LEAVE!!!!!!! Sheesh....

Okay, I have settled down. I hate having people do something that I can't retaliate to or try to fix. I am SO bored! I've been playing Monster Hunter for the past couple of hours, but I'm bored of that. I also watched some of the Razorback game, but we kicked their butts, so that was boring too. =D I convinced Ryan to get a facebook, and also bribed him to give me his password. Mwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!! =D =D =D How, you ask? Well, I have my ways... =D So I helped him set that up (not that he needed any help, I think he was just being nice). I watched the Jurassic Park movies. I love them so much!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was my first time to watch the second and third. They always have me on the edge of my seat!!!!!!! =D =D = D

One more thing. DOES ANYONE OUT THERE LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER?!?!?!?!?!

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Ta-da!!!!!!

Here it is! To understand what I'm talking about, you had better read the last post. lol =D

Here he is, the illustrious and amazing song-writer, Ryan J.! (I gave him a new last name, J isn't the first letter of his real last name) =D

(lol)

And the talented composer, Taylor!

(lol)

Ryan didn't want me to post the audio of him singing (not that I know how to do that anyway) so this is me playing the music that I wrote for his song. Idk why the video is so small, but it's just for listening anyway. =D

video

Don't judge. =D

Aren't We Clever?

This will probably be a lot more funny to me than you guys. =D Last night, I was talking on the phone with a couple of my friends, Ryan and Becky. Somehow, we got on the topic of "Puff the Magic Dragon", which Ryan is scared of. (lol) I can say that without worry of him ever finding out because he never reads my blog. >=P Anyway, we talked for like an hour, then he hung up and Becky and I talked for a couple more hours. I checked my unread text messages when I was done, and Ryan had sent me a recording of him singing a stupid song about Puff he had just made up! It was SO funny!!!!!!!!!! I almost died! It's now my ringtone!!!!! If I can figure out how, I'll try to post it on here. =D Here are the words:

Puff, the magic dragon,
He makes little kids scared.
They flail around in ag-on-y...
Cuz he's got an evil glare.

I know, I know, you guys think I'm crazy. But if you knew him, and how shy he is.... =D Anyway, he said he was going to try to figure out the music to it on the guitar, so I offered to do it on the piano. =D I got the tune down really fast (it's very simple) but it took me forever to write it down!!!!!  For one thing, I had to make my own music paper to write the notes on!! And, my notes were drawn so badly they're almost illegible. But I did finish it. =D Ryan's going to write a few more verses. =D =D But then he had a suggestion. He said, "Hey, why don't you play the music to it and sing harmony with me?" Haha. Yeah, that's gonna happen. =D

If I May Have a Moment...

HEY! My bestest friend Eldarwen is having a spectacular giveaway! I'm sure ya'll already know about it, but still. =D Please enter! Competition is fierce, the prize amazing! So what are you waiting for? =D Here's the link: http://thefaithfulelvenprincess.blogspot.com/2010/09/500th-post-giveaway.html

Boring and Hairdos.

I don't really have anything to post about. Sorry. =( Becky spent last night here, and we stayed up till about 2:30. You probably think that we were doing something fun and crazy, right? Wrong. We watched the Dark Knight until about 1:00 a.m., then read our books for an hour and a half. We are so exciting. But that's what we love to do! We went on a couple of gocart rides, which was crazy. =D I was texting my friend as we whizzed along, and almost dropped my phone! Serves me right, I guess. Now I'm super tired, and my family tells me that I am cranky. Baloney. Don't you think I would know if I was cranky?! I am the most cheerful person on this planet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >=P

Yeah, I should probably get some sleep. But, I had a picture that I wanted to show you. Christy and I were bored, so we "fixed up" our hair. =D
We are so cool. =D

My Play.

Okay, this is the play I told you about in the last post, that no one read. lol =D So, I'll tell you again. This is the play that I wrote for an English assignment. Me and a few of my friends are going to act it out. =D



Three women are sitting at a kitchen table, talking after a long day of housework. The room is a typical kitchen. They are good friends, and are waiting for a friend.


Characters are:
Mary Bly: Owner of the house. Middle-aged, friendly.


Karen Harrison: Fun-loving, outgoing, sometimes crazy.


Linda Sanders: Rather sarcastic, married.


Agatha Marconia: Middle-aged, very superstitious.


Mary: More coffee, girls?


Linda: No thanks, I've had enough.


Karen: Well, I'll take some more, thank-you Mary. (Mary gets up and goes to the coffee pot.)


Linda: My, that's a lot of calories. (Glances sideways at Karen)


Karen: (Unfazed by Linda's remark) I was up at two o'clock with Tommy. He still won't sleep through the night! I am so tired! I need this coffee!


Mary: (nodding wisely) I know what you mean. Children can be so difficult!


Linda: Well, I'm glad I never had any then.


Karen: Linda! I'm surprised at you! You always said you never had children because Brad didn't want to!


Linda: Well, yes, that's true. Well, sort of. Brad doesn't want to have kids because I don't want to.


Karen. But children can be so wonderful! I just don't understand-


Mary: (Interrupting) I wonder where Agatha is!


Linda: Who knows? Probably off on another lark of hers. (Leans forward) She does the strangest things, you know. (The others involuntarily lean closer)


Karen: What do you mean? (Eager for a bit of gossip)


Linda: Oh, that's right! You've never met her! Well, let me tell you! I think it has something to do with her religion, or whatever you call it. Superstitions, cults...I don't like it. She says that she communicates with nature, that nature is god. She says we're surrounded by spirits who control our fate.


Mary: Now Linda, I've always found Agatha to be perfectly pleasant, when she isn't absorbed in her....beliefs.


Karen: (squeals) It makes me even more eager to meet her!


Linda: Don't worry, you will. She should be here in-


(loud screams are heard coming closer to the house)


Karen: What is that?!


(Linda and Mary share a knowing look)


Mary: That's Agatha.


A wild-eyed woman bursts in and slams the door behind her. She is wearing an odd assortment of clothes that are outdated and don't match.


Agatha: CLOSE THE DOORS!



(She rushes around the table, slamming the back door shut with a terrific bang.


Mary: Agatha-


Agatha: The windows!!!!!!


(She rushes around the kitchen and slams the windows shut, then races off into the other rooms off scene to shut the other windows)


Linda: (sighing) Here she goes on another one of her larks! I warned you!



Karen: (wide-eyed) What is she doing?! Is she all right?! Are we under attack?!


Linda: (waving her hand and rolling her eyes) No, it's just something strange, as usual. I'm sure it's nothing serious.)


A chorus of screams are heard from offstage.


Karen: NOW what?!


Mary: Oh dear, the bedroom window sticks when someone tries to shut it!


(She scurries out of the kitchen and off stage to where the screams are being heard)


Linda: Imagine. Having a fit because a window won't shut.


Karen: (still shaken) Is there anything wrong with her?


Linda: (shrugs) Probably.



(Mary enters, a comforting arm around Agatha's shoulder as the woman shakes visibly)


Mary: Now Agatha, you just sit down right here and tell us what's wrong.


(Agatha reluctantly settles into a chair at the table. She grabs Linda's cup of coffee and holds it in trembling hands. Linda glares at her, but Agatha takes no notice.)


Agatha: I-I was walking over here, a-and I-I (A look of fear comes into her eyes and she bites her knuckle fearfully)


Mary: (prompting) Yes?


Linda: (sarcastically) Oh yes, do tell.


Karen sits staring at Agatha, wide-eyed


Agatha: (Taking deep breath. Speaks quickly) I stepped on a green leaf! (bursts into sobs)


All three women share a look.


Karen: (Venturing) A green leaf?


Agatha: (screams) YES! (buries her head in her arms and sobs)


Karen: And that's......bad?


Agatha: (raises her head with a look of disbelief on her face) Do you seriously not know?!


Linda: She's a newcomer, Agatha.


Agatha: To step on a green leaf is to insult the gods of nature! (raises her arms in the air dramatically) The leaf was not dead yet!!!!! When I stepped on it, I killed it!!!!! The gods of nature did not will for it to die yet! And I killed it! (she buries her face in her hands and sobs)



Karen is gawking at her with a mixture of terror and curiosity. Linda looks bored. Mary is playing with her coffee.


Agatha: (leaping to her feet) Oh no! What am I doing?! I am going to be punished!!!! I cannot be with other people, or they too will experience the wrath of the gods!!!!!!!!!!!!


She runs out of the room, mumbling some weird chant. We hear the door slam after her.


Karen: That.....was....really....really.....weird!


Linda: It's Agatha. Same difference.


Mary: I know she's a little strange, but she really is sweet.


Linda glances at her watch.


Linda: Oh, I'm sorry Mary, but I have to go.


Karen: Um, yes, I should be going too.


They both stand up and say goodbye.



cut camera.





start camera.



Karen and Linda are sitting at Linda's home on the sofa.



Linda: Listen Karen, I would really like to show Agatha how silly she is being with all this superstition stuff. I mean, she was a perfectly normal person before she got caught up in all of that stuff.



Karen: I agree. We really owe it to her to try to return her to normal. But how?



Linda: (grinning mischievously) I'm glad you asked.



                                                                                  ACT II





Mary and Agatha are sitting at Mary's table again. Agatha is showing Mary some strange voodoo thing, and laughing weirdly. Karen and Linda burst through the door.



Linda: (panicking) AGATHA! Agatha!



(Agatha jumps to her feet and runs over to where Linda is supporting Karen, who looks faint.)



Agatha: What happened?! (looks fearful)

Linda: Karen got a papercut!!!!


(Agatha examines Karen's finger while Karen acts like she is dying.)


Agatha: Oh no!!! This is my fault! (wails) I stepped on the green leaf yesterday and came directly here, and now the spirits of nature are punishing you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (falls to the floor sobbing)


(Karen winks at Linda, who helps her to a chair at the table next to Mary, who examines Karen's finger worriedly.)



Mary: Oh Karen, it's just a little scratch!


Agatha: (jumping to her feet) It's only the beginning! We have to move fast!


(She grabs Karen and Mary by the hands and drag them into the living room, Linda following behind. She seats them all in a circle on the floor and rushes about, gathering things. The girls just watch her.



Agatha: (screaming) They're coming! (looks around wildly)


(Agatha runs into the kitchen and returns with several sun catchers.)


Mary: Agatha, what are you doing with my sun catchers?


(Agatha smacks them on all of the living room windows.)


Agatha: They will catch some of the spirits as they come in to kill us!!!!!


(She rushes out of the room and returns with building blocks. She arranges a circle around the girls.)

Agatha: (shrieking) Hold hands, hold hands!!!!!!


(She flips on the ceiling fan and turns off all the lights. She runs and makes sure that the door is locked, then comes in with a wand and dances around the girls, who look at each other in quiet amusement. Agatha grabs a salt shaker and salts each of their heads, then runs and grabs a piece of lace and plops down by the girls, who have left a spot for her in the circle. Agatha throws the lace over her head and covers her ears with her hands and holds her nose shut and hums a chant. The girls don't quite know what to say.)


Linda: Um, Agatha?


Agatha: (shortly) Sh. (she resumes her chant)


Linda: (protesting) But Agatha!


Agatha: Quiet! Don't let them in your body! (she covers her ears and nose again)


Linda: Agatha!!!! Where's Karen?!


(Everyone looks around wildly)


Agatha: Oh NO!!!!!!


(She leaps to her feet, but does not leave the circle)



Mary: I have to go find her! (She steps out of the circle)


Agatha: NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (she yanks Mary back in)


Linda: But Agatha, we have to find her!


(Agatha is about to answer, when they hear chains rattling in the hallway. Mary and Linda pretend to be scared, but Agatha is terrified. A figure in white sheets appears and Mary and Linda scream. Agatha's eyes roll back and she collapses in a dead faint.)



                                                                             ACT III





(Karen and Linda are sitting at Mary's table again.)


Linda: It's been two weeks since we played that joke on Agatha.


Karen: Yeah.


(silence)


Linda: It probably could have gone better.


(pause)



(Mary enters holding Agatha's arm in support. Agatha is shaking and looking around wildly and twitching uncontrollably. Mary helps her sit then sits next to Linda and Karen. All three stare at Agatha, who is still shaking and twitching and looking around. Her eyes are wide with terror.)


Karen: Yeah, it probably could have gone better.



                                                                             THE END


Well, there it is! =D Tell me how ya liked it. =D Guess what part I'm going to play? lol =D

They're Gone!

April and Nic left yesterday. =( It was sad, but I am kind of glad to get back into routine. =) Sorry I didn't post that whole time, but either I was busy or tired or Nic was on my laptop. So it's not my fault! =( =) But I did get to use April's straightener. =D I am now addicted!!!! And I wore eye makeup for the first time too. It was very exciting. =D Since we got time off for April and Nic's visit, we have to do school today. Wait, today is Labor Day! =O I totally forgot! Well then, happy Labor Day! =D I'll post again when I have something meaningful to post about. =D Something having to do with pictures....Oh! I know something interesting!!!!! =D *evil laugh* For an English project, I had to write a small play. Me and a few of my friends are going to act it out, and I thought that you guys might like to read it. =D So I'll be posting that later. =D =D =D

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I Forgot to Tell You...

April and Nic are here in Arkansas! You may remember, I posted about them like, two months ago. We went up and visited them up in Minnesota, and now, they're here, with Makenzie! She's the one I asked you guys to vote for. =D We went to Chuck E.Cheese today, and it was a blast! =D =D =D I am SO tired! It's crazy! I have no reason to be so tired, but still, I am. =( I'll try to post pics tomorrow. =) Just wanted to tell ya!

Jellyfish

I find this video absolutely HILARIOUS for some reason! My friend, Becky, thinks I'm crazy for liking it so much, so I was just wondering what you guys think of it. =D

Friday, August 27, 2010

Yay!

Tonight, my best friend Becky is spending the night! =D =D =D I know what you're thinking. What's the big deal? Yes, I know she comes over practically every other week, but this weekend is going to be special! We're going to play Monster Hunter Tri and Zelda, and watch ghost movies late at night, and possibly The Dark Knight! =D And very late, we're going to go catch frogs at the pond. So this is going to be so awesome! =D I can't wait! This afternoon, I'm going with her and another friend, Ryan, to a school activity. They both go to school where I used to go, and I keep in touch with everyone. =D I just LOVE hanging out with friends, and since I don't get to do it often, this is especially special! =D I'm going to take pics with my phone while at the activity, and I'll use the camera when I get home. I was planning on making a video of Becky and I playing Monster Hunter Tri (we get pretty worked up) but the webcam on this laptop isn't working, and I can't figure out how to transfer vids from the video camera, so I guess that's out. =( But there will still be pictures!!! =D =D =D =D

Fine Then!

All right, I get it, I get it. You people obviously aren't too interested in my Alaska pictures, so I have decided not to post the rest of them. I do have something else that might interest you. My sister, April, has a daughter, Makenzie. We went up to there house about a month or so ago, you may recall. Well, Makenzie is entered in a Gerber contest, and she needs votes! The prize is $25,000!!!! =O A person is allowed to vote once per day per computer. So Mom and I vote every day, me on my laptop, and she on her PC. I've looked through the pics, and Makenzie is totally the cutest kid entered.  I would really, really, really, really appreciate it if you would vote for her. She already has more than most, but if she were going to win, it would take some dedication. =) So have a heart, and cast some votes. Here's the link:

 http://www.gerber.com/photo/#/vote/


When you get to the site, click "search photos" down below, and enter this number to find Makenzie: 64377
If you have any trouble at all voting for her, please tell me! This is very important! Thanks! =D

Alaska Pictures-Part One.

I posted this the first time, and one, maybe two people commented!!!!!! Very disappointing! This took a long time to make, and it's about an awesome trip! When you commented on the last Alaska post, you all wanted pics! Well, here they are! =D
Yes, these are the Alaska pictures!!!!!!! Yay! But only part of them. There are SO many, I would be here all day, so, I'm dividing them up in parts. I would have posted this yesterday on Saturday; interesting story behind that. I woke up at 10:00 (still getting used to the time change from Alaska), ate some donuts, and checked my email. I saw that I had comments on this post titled "My Dream House". I was sitting there thinking, "What? I didn't write that!" So I skedaddled on over and checked it out. Turns out that I made this post awhile back and scheduled it for today. Strange, huh? I like to get maximum comments on a post, so I try not to post more than once a day. So, that's why I'm posting it today. =D

Now, I already posted about what we did in Alaska. If you haven't read that, in order to understand this, you had better go back and read that. I am not sure at all what pictures go with what day, so this should be interesting. =D

At the airport. I may look happy, but I was SO sick! (I just knew that Dad was taking a picture) =D I was using Mom's phone that she lent to me, since I still hadn't gotten my new one!

In the airplane. I was already getting frustrated with Christy, as you can see. When she's wearing that dopey smile, and my hands are doing that, you know that she is annoying me on purpose!

Picture out of the plane.
When we transferred to another plane in Minneapolis, Dad sat across the aisle from me and Christy next to two guys, Kenny and Trampis. (trampis was his last name, we're pretty sure) Trampis was a very loud talker, and talked the WHOLE six hours on the flight! No joke! He was a sniper in the military, really awesome. But he kept swearing, which wasn't cool. But Christy and I noticed something that we thought was so funny. He kept using the word "frikin". Seriously, in every other sentence, he would say it! It was so hilarious! Christy and I were cracking up! (Even though we don't like that word) =D =D =D

Haha, these are like escalators, except they don't go up. They're just running along the floor, and it makes walking so much faster. =D

This is Kenny, one of the guys sitting next to Dad. We saw him and Trampis at the baggage claim.

And this is Trampis with his two little boys. He had been away from home for about four months, I think. His wife is there, but we didn't get her in the picture. =(
Another Day.

We went to some park the very next day. It was cold! And yes, I am wearing flip flops. With my heel still infected, it really hurt to wear shoes, so I wore flip flops. Which I HATE! >=( People walking by gave me lots of funny looks. =D

We went back to the car and got warmer coats. =D
The Next Day

This is a picture of us at the Weekend Market I told you about. =D =D

The food was AWESOME! Wow, my hair looks really long there. =O

One of Dad's random pictures.

That was an awesome malamute in the background!

He was so soft!

I'm not really sure what this is. When I uploaded it, I thought it had something to do with the next pictures.

I can feel the glare from my Texan friends. *cringe*

There was a whole stand dedicated to putting down Texas. Sorry Eldarwen. =D

In case you can't read it, it says:
"There are 2 kinds of people. Those who are Texan and those who wish that they were.
And the second one says:
"There are 2 kinds of people. Those who are Texan and those who are glad they aren't.
LOL Notice the Texan flag on the first one and the Alaskan flag on the second. =D Seriously though, I love Alaska! =D =D =D

Our beautiful room at the Sockeye Inn.

Me texting.

Um, yeah, it was a really nice room.

Pretty mountain!

Same mountain.

Still the same one.

Yes, Dad loves taking these pictures!

I thought that this mountain looked cool because like a little blanket of clouds was draped across the top. It looks like a volcano smoking or something. =D

Behold, the mighty glacier!!!!!!!! lol This one drifted down or something. You might think that it just happened a few days ago, but no. That thing has been there for years! It's so cold, it just barely melts. Weird, huh?

You can see a real glacier between the mountains behind us. And yes, I am texting.

Still texting. But in my defense, I was texting pictures of the glacier piece to everyone. =D

That was a nice car. I loved it. =D
Then we went hiking up to by a real glacier. I had to wear tennis shoes, so my foot hurt a lot, and it took us a long time. If you're wondering why I am not wearing my coat, I had a fever from the infection, plus it was exhausting limping up there! But it was worth it.....I think. =D
See the glacier in front of Christy?



There was like a river running under the ice and snow.



Behind us is where the snow and ice caved in and dropped into the river.

Another one of these pictures. Dad doesn't like asking someone else to take the pictures. =)

=D Even there, you can see that I'm standing on tiptoe on one foot.

I thought that this sign was funny. =D

Resting.

Dad was sure that this plant was fireweed, so he took a picture of it. (By the way, it turned out not to be) lol =D
A Different Day...
Here we are at the docks, trying to pick out a good fishing boat to take us halibut fishing. Yes, it was cold!



Okay, we were driving back, and saw a black bear walking along! You can just barely see the little black dot in the picture, but it's there! =D

We ate at this ridiculously over-priced and over-rated restaurant. Bad!

That's the Sockeye Inn behind us.

Another picture of it.

Sorry ya'll, that's all for now! I have three times this many pictures at least, so I would probably be here for the rest of my life, uploading and captioning them. =D More coming up soon!
