Now, I'm not on my computer, so I can't post any pictures, (I'm on my grandparents computer), but I'll tell you what I "Cleaned up". (Thanks Mom)
From Poppa: jeans, socks, a jacket, pj's, a bathrobe and a chef nutcracker.
From Nanny: a snowman nutcracker, gloves, a pin, a scarf, fingerless gloves, and a gift card to her Day Spa (haircuts!)
From Deeda (great grandma): scrapbooking supplies- stickers, boarders, and 12x12 papers.
From Mom and Dad: a waffle iron, a Magic Bullet, a wii game- Mario Cart, and an Italian Art Easel- complete with oil, acrylic, and watercolor paint, brushes, and a palette.
From Julianna: an owl ornament (it was once my great grandma Mickey's), an owl notebook, and a pen.
I'd say I did pretty good. What did you get? Have a Merry rest of the day, and enjoy your turkey.

(Poppa, which movie is that from?)
Wow. It seems like yesterday was the first day of summer vacation. It's amazing how time flies. Anyway, on to the subject of Christmas. Who's excited? Raise your hands. I am! It seems that the days leading up to Christmas go so quickly, and Christmas Eve drags so slowly.
Our church is putting on a Christmas production this evening, so we had a 10:30 practise this morning. (Julianna is a narrator, and I was asked if I could be an angel.) The play will be at 6:00 this evening, if you want to come (Level Ground Mennonite Church; Next to the Airport).
I was just called to help with making Pumpkin Cheesecake and to gather the ingrediants for my Dad's Baked Oatmeal. I plan to post shortly after Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Any guesses? If you're all out of guesses, or you don't know, I'll tell you. This thing is a (mini) statue of a pharaoh, (I think it is Ramses), that I made out of clay. Isn't it cool? Well, here's the project that goes with it.
Neat huh? It took me about a week to construct, and as soon as I find out what I got on it, I'll post that. (It's out of 80.)
I just love how the water actually looks shiny, and how the temple is all blurry-looking. Don't you?
Well, I should go finish my homework now. I have to keep track on a schedule everything I do and how long it takes me to do it for a week. I also have my Christmas Concert this evening, and I'm a little nervous about it, so I should practise my flute once more. Have a great evening, everybody!

So thet was the "show" part of this post, now on to the "dinner". Julianna made her famous french fries, this time loaded with farmer sausage and cheese. They were so good. Tomorrow I'll post about my huge egypt project. Until then,

So anyway, last weekend and this weekend, was (Is) my mom's 11 annual open house! We had (and are having)lots of fun. Julianna and I made fudge, dishcloth bloomers, and pencils, and our cousin Olivia,made friendship bracelets and tiger butter. Almost all her tiger butter is gone, so if you want some, you better come now. (She also broke her nose, so please hope she gets better, and that it won't have to be rebroken
If you want tocome to this amazing event, we are open until 5:00pm this evening. I hope to see you there!

Also, to add to my work load, the first 16 pages of my 44 page story have to be typed up for Friday. (Then, 6 journal entries in my bible portfolio and a title page are due December 3, as well.)
So, I should get to work. I'm also not feeling so well today, so I'm taking it easy.
Wish me luck!

Aren't we cute? I don't mean to brag, but aren't we cute? As you can see, Julianna was a fisher-person, and I was dressed up from the 50's. Now, be honest. What were you dressed up as? Please leave a comment and let me know!

They set up different stations, showing Japanese culture. We were split into groups, and were given about an hour to go through, and see what their culture is like. When we first got downstairs to the Multi-Purpose Room, (The grade 7's are on the third floor of the school), they sang us a beautiful song in Japanese. Then, we went off to different stations. Some of them were: trying on kimonos, (which were very pretty, and very warm), playing with paper balloons, (more like wax paper balls, with a small hole to blow in), making origami cranes, writing our names in calligraphy, (I still have mine from last year, as well as this year), a Japanese green tea ceremony... and lots more. Also, through out the afternoon, the showered us in VERY SWEET CANDY, (Just the way I like it...), and little origami things. I got an origami butterfly, and it's now hanging in my locker. Some other things that were given was: cranes, little star-boxes, pouches, and teeny-tiny cranes, like the size of this word. They were very cute.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your wet, rainy, windy, cold day.

For dinner that evening, (after finding out that the streets we wanted to take were all 1 ways), we went to Overall, the meal was nice, and the spumoni ice-cream was delicious. When we got back to the van... It was covered with atomic bird-bombs. (I just now got back inside from washing the van) Nice, eh?

This is before....
....And this is after.
And here is me, biting into an apple... I haven't been able to do that in 2 years. And as you can see, the apple was cold, and my front teeth were sensitive... (I was going to show the rest of my my family on Thanksgiving dDy, but our plans changed, so I'm doing it this way, instead)

I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.

An owl with the words: "Who loves ya?" And really, could you even imagine an owl lover like me even thinking of passing up such an adorable shirt? I know I couldn't.
So, join me next week on "Today's Owl".
