Fun With Sam

Last night I decided to have a photo shoot with Sammy. He loves his little fabric toy, so I took some pictures of him with that. He's so cute! :)

Which one is your favorite?

Picnik is Fun!! ;)

Here's a before and after picture I edited on Picnik. I initially didn't really like the picture, but after editing it I like it more. :) I love playing around on Picnik. ;)

What I've Been Doing...

Well, when I posted last I didn't know it was going to be for the last time in almost 2 weeks! Sorry about that.  Although not planned, the blogging break was nice and I enjoyed it. So, I guess y'all are wondering what I've been doing. I'll tell you.

First of all, Pop took me and my siblings to see Inception last weekend. I thought it was really cool! I liked it a lot, but it's one of those movies you have to see at least twice before you really get everything about it. Now we're waiting for it to come out on DVD, so we can get it from Netflix. ;)

Yesterday I got my hair cut. I was thinking, to match my bangs up with the rest of my hair, I would have to go to my chin, but it turns out my bangs were to my my shoulders, so I only had to go to my shoulders. I measured it, and I had exactly 12'" cut off. I'm going to donate it. It will be my third or fourth time to donate it. :) Here's a before and after picture:

Also, school has been keeping me busy. I'm glad to get back into the routine, though. I like summer break, it's really nice for a little while,  but after a while you just get bored! I do, anyway. ;)

So, now you know what I've been up to!

Love and hugs to you all!

Rainy Days

We've been having a lot of those around here. It's been in the rainy season for a couple of weeks now. I'm glad, because up until a couple of weeks ago, the summer had been very dry and hot. Not only has the rain given us the water everything needed, but it's cooled things off.

Here are a few pictures I've taken of it:
