Toby Time!

I had a little photo shoot with Toby today. Although I had a lot of fun, I don't think he did. (He doesn't like to have his picture taken and really doesn't like to look at the camera . ;) )Here are a few of the pictures I took:

He was a little camera-shy at first...

But then remembered he'd get some treats if he was good, so he made sure to look straight into the camera. :)

I put a beret on him...

He asks himself what he's gotten himself into.

He watched some TV...

then listened to a little music. :)

And now, tuckered out and ready for his treats, he bids everyone a fond farewell!


Yeah, I did a lot with him today. The only thing he wouldn't let me do is put shoes on him. :D Really, I tried. Anyway, I hope y'all enjoyed the pictures!

I Changed My Mind ;)

I changed my mind about posting a few pictures of our trip. I decided that they didn't really show where we live. Anyway, here they are! :)

We had to wait for some workers to clear the road, because some rocks had fallen... obviously. ;)

A very fun road to ride on! ;)

Besides this goat, we only saw a couple deer. Isn't he cute? :)

Some really long icicles. :D

Sorry the pictures are a little fuzzy, but it's the best I could do through a car window. I have to go now!

P.S. - As you can tell, I'm in the mood for smiley faces... especially winking ones. ;) ;) ;)

Eldarwen's Having A Blog Party!

Yep, she is, and I decided to join in!

1) How old are you? 15

2) What name do you go by on blogger? Haley

3) When is your birthday? January 20, 1995

4) If you could live anywhere in the world, besides where you live now, where would it be? In the mountains with a lot of land or in a quaint cottage in England. :) *happy sigh*

5) How did you find out about Blogger? Seriously, I have no idea.

6) Tell us something interesting about yourself: I've been growing my bangs out for a year (literally) and some of them still won't go back in a ponytail. Annoying? Yes!!! Also, I'm getting my braces off on May 18!! *squeals*

7) What was your favorite toy when you were little? Well, I liked a lot of toys, but my favorite was either Barbies, Little People, some cool blocks we had, or cars.

8) What is your favorite meal? Have you ever cooked/helped cook that meal? I guess my favorite meal is hamburgers.. and yes, I help make them every time we have them.

9) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would like my bangs to automatically grow out as long as the rest of my hair!!

10) Are you an outside person, or an inside person? When the weather's nice, definitely an outside person.

11) Are you a mommy's boy/girl, or a daddy's boy/girl? Both I guess...

12) In one word, describe the feeling you get when you stub your toe, after just being told by your parents that you are grounded for the next month: Frustrated and mad at the world! I know that's not one word, but that's how I'd feel in six words. ;)

13) Let's say you TP'd your friend's house (for those of you who don't know what TP'd stands for, it means toilet papered. As in, put toilet paper on their trees, cars, house, porch, etc.). If someone asked you why you TP'd your friends house, you would say: I was sleepwalking. Dumb excuse, I know, but it would also be a very dumb thing to do.

14) Have you ever gone swimming in deep, dark, dirty water? Nope and I never want to.

15) Have you ever dreamed about getting ready to leave the house, and forgetting to get your pants on? No... for heaven's sake, why even ask!

16) Have you ever done something so ridiculous, that you wish you'd never done it? If so, what? Probably, but I can't think of anything at the moment.

17) Imagine that you saw a purse snatching. What would you do?
a. scream and run away
b. move out of the state/country
c. tackle the purse snatcher to the ground.
d. ignore it, start whistling, and turn the other direction.

I guess I'd call the police and scream.

18) How many friends do you have on blogger? Hmmm... let's just say a lot.

19) What makes blogging so much fun for you? I can post about almost anything and everything I want and look at other people's posts! :)

20) You're a turtle, who has bet that you can win a race with a rabbit. How does it turn out?" Well, unless I, the turtle, has rockets or something on, the rabbit will most likely win. So I guess the rabbit wins the race. :(

Those were some... interesting questions and I bet only Eldarwen could have thought up and actually posted some of these. ;)

FYI, although we had a blast Friday and I took tons of pictures, I can't post any because they'd totally reveal where I live and I refuse to let that be known. So, sorry girls, but I'll be posting no pictures of our trip and will have to disappoint y'all. :(

"Talk to y'all later!"

Me... excited?!

Hey everyone!
Me and my family are going to go on a little day trip tomorrow and I am so excited!! It's going to be the first full weekday Pop's taken off (besides Christmas and Thanksgiving, of course) since he started his job here. We're going to have a picnic and just have a blast. I'll try to post a few pictures of our fun time sometime next week. Can any of you tell I'm excited? ;)

Gotta go now! Love y'all!

Doesn't he look soooooo much better?! Yep, like I said, he's a cutie again. :)

What Do Y'all Think?

Sooooo, I guess y'all have noticed I changed my background. I looked around at all the background websites I use, and as ridiculous as it may sound, couldn't find a thing I liked enough to put on my blog. Hey, when it comes to that I am very picky! So then I did a search and found this website: http://www.blogblings.com/. Any of y'all ever been there? So anyway, I changed my background and Lindsay made me a new button. Thanks Lindsay!! :) Would y'all change from my old button to my new one? Thanks!

Also, Lindsay is having a giveaway. She's giving away the cutest little bag and apron she made, so hurry and enter!! :)

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
