Spring Pictures

 It has been raining here a lot lately but there was one sunny day and I thought I should go outside and take some pictures.
These pictures have all been edited on PicMonkey.
A birdhouse that we think has eggs in it but we are to scared to look just in case a bird flies out and hits our face.
Some Saskatoon Berry blossoms
A Ford grain truck that my dad bought from an auction a couple of weeks ago.

Another one of our old vehicles

Wacky Wednesdays~They Will Learn

Wacky Wednesdays is a day for bloggers to share something funny like a song, a joke, something that someone said, a story or just whatever is funny. The rules are if you want to do Wacky Wednesdays that you have to follow me and comment saying that you are doing it.
This Wednesday I would like to tell you guys about how Ben and Jacob say the funniest things.
Jacob has been sneezing a lot because he has a cold or something but he doesn't think that. He says that he has "injuries" (allergic) to everyone. He even told the pastor's wife that last Sunday! 
Ben loves to sell and buy stuff on Kijiji quite a bit and there is a section on there that is called "swap or trade". But Ben calls it "swipe or trade"!
They say a bunch of other funny things but 2 are are I can remember right now. I always want to correct them but then I remember that they will learn how to say it soon then it won't be cute anymore.
God bless you,

Little Bits And Pieces

 I didn't know what to call this post because I am talking about 3 different things! So the title is the only thing I could think of.
But anyway, I now have pictures of Jacob getting his cast taken off and what his arm looks like now.

When he first got to the hospital he was kind of scared but when the nurse was showing him the saw he was okay.

Then once she started the saw he got a little scared.
Then all of a sudden he probably thought his arm was going to get chopped off. I wasn't there so I don't know what he was thinking but he looks pretty scared.
Then it started tickling his arm so then he was laughing. My mom was really scared it was going to cut his arm too but she didn't want to scare Jacob so she had to be brave and tell him it wasn't.
Last night we went to this lake near us so Jacob finally got to go in the water after a month of not being allowed. He was really happy.

Quite a few weeks ago I bought this beautiful Mexican dress off of eBay. It is actually from Thailand but it looks Mexican.
I was scared when I bought it that it wasn't going to fit but it fits perfect. 
Last Monday Value Village had a half price sale. I got a bunch of shirts because all of my shirts are way to short for me because I am so tall. But my mom also found cowboy boots, my size and they were only 11 dollars.
I really want brown cowboy boots to wear to go out with but these will do until then. And once I do find them I will use these to learn how to ride with. I don't take riding lessons but I hope to soon.

God bless you,

It Is Finally Off!

 Jacob finally got his cast off! You guys are probably thinking WHAT is she talking about!?! Well that is because I have been a really bad blogger for the last couple of months. Last month Jacob and Ben were fighting over a curtain for some reason. I know this sounds really weird already! Well the curtain was on the ground and they were on the couch when Ben kind of gave Jacob a little push and Jacob landed on the curtain standing up when it slide across the room and he fell with a huge thud! He was crying but we didn't think he was hurt because he always cries like he is hurt but in a second he jumps up and starts playing again. But this time he said he couldn't move his arm! So then my mom was like we are going to the hospital. When  they got there they had to wait a little while so my mom dug for her purse and this is what she found.
A balloon and electric Yahtzee game. They had to cut off his shirt so he had to wear my mom's sweather

When they took the x-rays they found he had a broken elbow! Well it was JUST above the elbow! There was swelling where he broke it so they put on a soft cast for four days.

Then on Monday they put on his hard cast.
He usually has a really nice smile but once in a while you tell him to smile and he looks like Davy Crockett trying to grin down something. All he needs is a coonskin cap and a fringe buckskin coat and he would be Davy Crockett.

Then last Wednesday he finally got his cast off. He was really scared the saw thing was going to cut his arm but it didn't. I don't have a picture of him with his cast off right now but I will soon. He looks pretty funny now. His arm is white well his hand is really tan but he can tan really quick so it won't look funny for long.

God bless you,

TobyMac Concert in Edmonton

 Last Friday night I went to the TobyMac concert with my youth pastor, his wife and three other kids. You see the youth pastor bought 4 tickets to the concert and he did a contest to earn points for us to win a ticket. The stuff we earned points on were going to church, going to youth, going to Sunday School, memorising bible verses, and there was a special assignment each week. I got first place! I was so excited to go, not for TobyMac, but for Jamie Grace! Because I didn't really love to many TobyMac songs but I love Jamie Grace's songs. It sounds kind of funny that I just went for the opening act but oh well.
Before we went to the concert they took us all out to Chilli's. It was SO GOOD! I had the Chicken, Bacon, Ranch Quesadilla. I usually have caesar salad with chicken when I go to restaurants but I felt like having something different that night and I love quesadillas.
Another girl that went to the concert and me at Chilli's
 Three of us waiting. There was another boy but he was sitting at the end. I am so bad at blinking. As soon as the flash turns on I blink, which I am doing in this picture.
The concert was AMAZING!!! It was very bright and loud because that is what all TobyMac concerts are like. But it was still really good. I had so much fun.
All of us (except the youth pastor's wife) after the concert.
God bless you,
