Super Long Random Post.......Fun! =D

Please read! Do you know how long it took me to make this?! And I promise you; you will be amused, at the very least! =D I'm quite behind in my pictures and events, so I'm lumping them all together. =D Which explains this huge post. A couple of weeks ago, I went to Minnesota, as you know. The last night there, we took some pictures.
I have a very defined, personal space, and since April and I don't always get along, it made it even more traumatic for me. =O
See the panic in my eyes?! That's because I was playing Monster Hunter on the Wii, and they were blocking my view. >=(

I look like I'm crying because they were tickling me!!!!!

Then it got weird.

I might have been slightly delirious because they were both sitting on me!

I'm feeling very embarrassed looking at these now.

Ah! That look on my face? That's my classic "Galon look". Seriously, he wears that expression a lot.

Guh-ROSS! (gross)

Trying not to laugh....


My personal favorite.

Whew, I'm glad that's over with! =O I feel very embarrassed, and I know that you all will never think of me the same after this. ='(

Then, this past weekend, we went to Fort Rock for the Women's Conference, as you know. I didn't get many pictures, and some were erased, as I will explain later. =O Anyway, there's a lady in our church, Mrs. Elsa, who is very sweet. =D She's been making jewelry lately, and she's very talented. Some of her creations are simply gorgeous! =D She decided to donate some of the pieces of jewelry for a fundraiser for Pam, the lady in our church who has breast cancer. =( People would write down their bids for the jewelry and others would go higher, and so on.

I found this simply BEAUTIFUL necklace! Seriously, it was the prettiest thing I've ever seen! So, Mom started bidding against this girl, Rebecca Bowden, who is very nice and sweet. We got up to a hundred dollars, then these two girls pulled us aside. Their names are Christina and Renee, and they are AWESOME! They are identical twins, and were both recently married. So, they pulled us aside and said that they were the ones who had actually been bidding on the necklace instead of Rebecca, they had just been using her name so their Mom wouldn't find out. They wanted the necklace for her birthday present. They said that if I really wanted it, then they would stop bidding and just have Mrs. Elsa make another necklace.

Well, I REALLY wanted that necklace. Really badly! I'm ashamed to say it, but I took multiple pictures, "visited" it often at the table, and even went back to the cabin and thought about it. It was bad! I was prepared to sell all I had brought to pay for it! =O Crazy, right? But of course, I knew what the right thing to do was. So I told them, amid much tears, that they could have it. Seriously, I was almost bawling. When they saw that, they wouldn't take it, but I was so ashamed of myself for acting in that manner that I insisted that they take it, and they finally did.

Back in the cabin that night, I took time to think about it. Deep down inside, and I do mean DEEP, a little part of me was glad that I had given it up. I looked back and realized how selfish I had been. I mean, I was totally consumed with the stupid piece of jewelry, a bit of glass, that I had almost hurt those girls and taken away their mother's birthday present. You know, even if I had taken that necklace, I wouldn't have enjoyed wearing it that much. =)

The funny thing about this, was that their mom figured out the scheme, so Mom pretended to buy it for me, but I was going to deliver it to Christina's and Renee's cabin later. The sad part was, everyone else at the Retreat had also loved the necklace, so as soon as I "won" it, they insisted that I put it on and model it, which made me cry again, since I knew that it wasn't really mine, but everyone assumed it was because I was so happy. I know, pathetic, right?

This is the necklace. This picture doesn't really do it justice, but still, I think it's beautiful.

On a brighter note, Sarah and Emily started swimming classes today! =D Sarah didn't like it, and didn't really try, but Emily liked it a lot! =D
The sad part is, I put my phone in my swim trunks pocket, and forgot to take it out. That's right, I went swimming with my phone. ='( It's totally ruined, but at least it was insured, and the Sim card was mostly saved. It got wet too, which is why some of the pictures were erased, if you will remember that I mentioned that earlier. It made me very sad, and now, I'm without texting!!!!! >=O It's TERRIBLE! *sigh*

By the way, have any of you seen Evan Almighty? If not, don't bother looking at the next picture.

Um, yeah.
