I absolutely LOVE drawing. I got the sudden urge to draw this morning when I was reading Garfield comics. So I drew some Garfield scenes. Here they are.

I just thought I'd show you. Hope you could read them OK.

Leaf Flowers

Who knew you could make pretty things out of leaves! Design Sponge has a post about Leaf Flowers. You can use a leaf and fold it in a certain way to make a flower!

Check out the site and make your own Leaf Flower! (Make sure you have green floral tape).

Thanksgiving Kids Table

Mom had a lot of good ideas for Thanksgiving, and the kids table is one of them. Since Mom didn't have any room for my brothers and I at the normal table, she made a kids table. My two favorite things on it are the turkey and the placemats.
The placemats don't look fancy because they are made of brown wrapping paper/packaging. The fun part about them, though, is that you can color them!
When you are bored at some point of the meal, just grab a colored pencil from the jar and start drawing!

You can find out how to make the turkey at:
One Charming Party.

On One Charming Party, just type in paper turkey in the search icon.

Thanksgiving Swag

Thanksgiving is here! And sometimes its hard to find Thanksgiving decorations. Mom came up with a home-made swag thats made of your worst fall enemy...........leaves.

What you do is get a long needle and thread it (make sure the string is really long). Then go outside and stick the needle through the prettiest leafs. Mom bought some orange lights to go with it and then hung it up.

There's your Thanksgiving deco. !


I can finally wear dangly earrings, the six weeks are up! The only thing is, my ears are sore,  and it hurts to take my earrings in and out. So my Mom suggested BagBalm. My grandma uses it, and mom used to.
Its supposed to really work, and it does!! Take my word for it.

Zoo Trip

 Well, we sure had a ball at the zoo today. Our grandparents took us. I got close-up pictures of all sorts of animals. This is going to be the post with the most pictures! You can see a......Scarlet Macaw, a Rhino, a Giraffe, a Leopard, Flamingos, a GIANT Anteater, a Black Bear, and a Fox.

So many animals! We saw all the animals in the zoo, but it took three hours plus lunch. And lots of the animals weren't there because they were sort of rebuilding, but we still had a lot of fun.

I thought I would put another post about Hershey since the video on the last one isn't working (is it working for you? I would like to see your answer).

The top picture is of Hershey when we first got him and we kept him inside .

The bottom picture..... I know its not very clear but I think you can tell that Hershey is much bigger.
He is 4 months now and an outside dog.

But even though he is growing up, so far he only knows how to sit and he still whines when he wants to be played with!

Dads blog

My family used to be missionaries to hispanics.......until my Dad was poisoned by carbon monoxide from our heater in our old house in Ohio. But Dad is still ministering, even if sometimes it is in his bed.
He has his own godly blog that has a few devotionals.

It is I am sure that you will enjoy it. But don't expect new posts very often because Dad says he go's on it about twice a year!

I am proud of my Dad because I think he is a very good christian. I think his blog is very good christian wise.

Homemade Detanguler

I go swimming a lot because my grandparents apartment has a pool. Swimming really hurts your hair, and there are always TONS of nots in long hair, like mine, afterwards. Well, detanguler helps a lot.

I have an easy way to make detanguler in only two steps. All you need that is store bought  is a spray bottle and some conditioner.

First, pour 2 teaspoons of conditioner into your spray bottle. Next, all you have to do is fill the rest of the bottle with water!!!!

Be sure you used the conditioner that really works for you. Then, with a spray almost every morning (thats what I do, at least. You don't have to at all) , each day you will hardly have any more knots at all!

Moving Again

Moving Again.......well, not as far as the last time my family and I moved. Forney, the city we are moving to, is only a few cities away from Whitehouse.

The house we bought is HUGE! And it was for a REALLY good price to. We are moving during christmas break.

We are also going to go to a new school called Blackburn elementary, pre-k through 6th grade.
At this school, the 5th and 6th graders get laptops to do homework on! That means I get a laptop!

When we were first moving to Texas, there was a pretty good house for sale that we really wanted. But someone else got it. But now we have something much larger and better.

A house in a good neighborhood, a good school, all things work out for good.

School has been going well lately. I've got good teachers, and lots of friends. The only problem is, I mean was, my eyes.

It was awfully heard to focus without my head hurting. And I usually had to ask the kid sitting next to me "what that word says".

So finally, Mom took me to the eye doctor. I looked through a lens, and boy was there a big difference!! (I am near-sighted, and have Astigmatism) So now I have brown glasses!

To add to my good luck, the eye doctor said I don't have to wear my glasses all the time, only when I am looking at something far away. So I don't have to play in my glasses and risk breaking them!

Thread Frame

My mom has a sewing closet that holds all of her craft things.  It holds things from felt to her sewing machine.  There was one thing she was missing, though. And that was a thread frame.

All mother did was spray paint a picture frame and cut out a sizable piece of cardboard. She hammered nails into the thick board, and finally, glued the frame and thread holder together.

Just hang thread on the nails and your ready to hang it in your sewing closet!
