Merry Christmas!

You know, being the only grand kids on both sides of my family have some advantages. You get attention, and you get spoiled (a lot). That's just the case with my sister and I. We're the only young people on both sides.

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.

"Tomorrow is Christmas. It's practically here!"

"It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes and bags."
(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!

So, I was going to post a week ago about my project, but I never got to it. And so, today's your lucky day! (Drum roll please...) TA-DA!

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.)

Now, This picture is my absolute favorite. I just love how it turned out. Take a look...

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!
