I'm pathetic...

I know I said I was taking a break from blogging for a few days....but apparently every time I *announce* a break, I find things to post, and when I actually *do* take a break, I do it rather randomly without letting anyone knowing, and therefore getting myself into tons of trouble. lol Oh well! You'll just have to endure another post! :P A "potpourri" post, if you will. ;)
This afternoon, Karah and I went outside to take was raining a bit. :)

I think she was looking at Judah...anyhow, I loved her expression! :)
Sarah has been making tea cloths (she embroiders them, I hem them) to give as gifts...they're pretty! :D
Karah has gotten soooo tall recently, so yesterday we pulled out all her too-short dresses, and brought in some that actually fit her. :) I think this one is her favorite...
Smiley Little Guy :D
Today Sarah and I were even more "twins" :) I have two dresses that are nearly matching entirely, and she wanted us to match, so we wore them for church today. :) Mr. Brian (our worship leader) had some of us "kids" (*ahem* I was the oldest one up there....but I guess I could still be called a kid) sing today, since we did mostly Christmas carols/hymns. :) We might do it again next week...
Being silly....
My girly babies. :D They *finally* like their dog house!! Oh....I don't remember if I ever said this, but they're outside dogs. :)
She loves that tree!
I blinded him as he came out of his room. :D Jeremy looks so dazed! lol
Our tree....
Mommy's roses. :)
Twirly skirt!!
The calendar that took me two hours to put together! :) I'm actually happy with how it turned out...
Katie, you can see my Blue Friday outfit. :D And a cute cat, to boot! ;)
Yesterday I got another birthday present in the mail!!!!!! :D Mom almost didn't give it to me: "Wait until your birthday to open it!" But what's the fun in that??!!! ;) It was from my penpal Rachel (VA). :D It was soooo sweet of her...and also a reminder that I've not replied to her letter yet!!! 0_0 Got to get working on that!!!
The box contained: tea!!! :D A whole box...all for myself!!!
Beautiful looking and smelling, potpourri! :D I just wish this picture could be a scratch'n'sniff so you could smell it!!! :D
And a beautiful scarf!!! :D It actually matches one that Sam made for Karah (I think it was Sam....), so now we have matching scarves! :D
I finally have mastered french braiding my own hair!! :D Now I have to work on doing two french braids... :)
I've been seeing a lot of boxes around here this week.....

Because......we're moving. :) Daddy found out this past week that he got a permanent job with a company in Greensboro, and he starts working for them on the 7th of next month. It's only two and a half hours away, so it's not that big of a deal to me. :D The only thing I don't look forward to about moving will be having to pack everything up and move it. Again. I know it's been two years since we last moved, but we have a LOT of stuff: heavy stuff!! Not to mention I can never decide what I DO need right now, and what I DON'T need, or can do without for about six months to a year. :/ I'm a minor packrat (Sarah is the major one...*wink*), and I have a hard time getting rid of things....packing things is second to getting rid of things, so it's nearly equally as hard. I spent a good portion of yesterday packing some things in mine and Sarahs' room (she helped a bit, but went out running errands with Daddy for awhile), and so far I've been really strict with myself as far as putting things in boxes, even if it means having barely anything in my room besides the basic necessities. I've decided I'm NOT going to wait until the last minute, and spend the last two or three weeks before moving scurrying around the house like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to pack all the things I thought I would need but never even thought about, like I did last time. That was NOT a pleasant way to spend the last days of our time in our old house, and I'm not going to allow myself to do that again. :) I'm looking forward to searching for a new house (call me crazy, but I really enjoy looking at other me lots of ideas!!!), getting a new room (and painting it *before* we move in...instead of moving in and forever speculating about when it'll get painted) possibly all to myself ( know what happened the *last* time I got my own room....After awhile I got lonely and had each of my sissies take turns "rooming" with me....oh! And the other day, Mom and I were talking about that, and we realized that I have shared a room with every single one of my siblings at one point or another! :) When Jeremy and I were really little we shared, I've almost always shared the the other girls, and when Josiah and Judah were in cribs they slept in we girls', now Micah *has* to share my room for at least a month to keep my record going!), meeting new people/making new friends, finding new activities to do (maybe library work again? Babysitting jobs?), and having new places to take pictures. :D I'm definitely going to miss my friends, and our church family, but I'm not going to die without them...and we'll not be too far away to visit once in awhile. :) Besides that, one of the families from our church (the other homeschooling family...Katie's family) is possibly going to be moving to Raleigh, so we won't be too far from them. :)

Anyways, there's my "breaking my blogging break" post. :)


  1. Wow! Moving! :) I'll pray that you find a wonderful new home! :D

    Micah's such a cutie! :-D

    If Sarah were closer to your age, you'd look like twins. :D

  2. I don't really want to move. :( Well, I do and I don't, I do because daddy got a new job, and I don't because I hate change :( I'm going to miss all my friends and everything! I'm going to sing next Sunday again!
