Pop's birthday and a trip

Today is my Pop's birthday! Happy birthday, Pop! :D God truly blessed me with a wonderfully amazing Pop! :)

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Also, tomorrow my Mom, siblings, and I are leaving to visit my grandparents. It'll take us two full days of driving to get there, so if you could pray for our safe travel we would all really appreciate it! :) Pop won't be able to go because of work, so he'll be left here with only a fat cat for company (a.k.a. Sam). Anyway, we'll be gone two weeks, so I'll be off Blogger until then. I'll miss y'all! :) Don't worry, when I get back I'll have lots and lots of pictures to share! :)

See ya!

Fallapalooza Blog Party!

Shannon over at Below the Plateau is having a fun blog party right now! She is giving away some really neat things, so you should definitely check it out. :)

Here are the questions for it:

1. Ring! Ring! You receive a phone call from a national sweepstakes organization saying that you have won a life-time supply of your favorite beverage!! What would that drink be?

Icees. They make me happy. :)

2. If you could live in a Jane Austen novel, which book would you pick? What character would you be?

Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. I took the quiz, so I know. ;)

3. What is your theme song, that favorite song that absolutely matches you?

In Christ Alone

4. You are trapped on a deserted island. Your only supplies are the clothes you have on, and a box with five things in it. What are those five things?

My Bible, a knife, inflatable raft so I could get off, water filter, and flashight.

5. Chocolate or Caramel?

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! ;)

6. Vacation! If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

A year long trip to Europe! :D I can always dream, right? ;)

7. If forced to do one of the two, which would you do: sky diving or scuba diving? Why?

I would be SO scared, but sky diving. Once I jumped it would be fun, it would just be getting myself to jump, ya know? Scary, but fun. :)

8. Favorite TV show, and why?

Right now, Early Edition. It has a really original plot and is funny. And, hey, you can't help but loving Gary. :)

9. Are you a coffee and donuts sorta lady, or a tea and scones type of gal?

Considering I don't like coffee I guess I'm a tea and scones person. I like donuts, though! ;)

10.The time machine has finally been created, and you are the first to be able to use it! What era would you travel too?

Definitely the Regency era. I love all the pretty dresses, balls, and polite guys. :)

11. What is the last movie you watched?

The Return of The King. My favorite of the trilogy. ;)

12. Ding-dong!!! Your favorite actor/singer/celebrity is at your front door! Who would it be?

Enuka Okuma. She seems like a lot of fun! ;)

13. What was your absolute favorite toy as a baby?

My blanket that I named Night-Night. I was in love with it!

14. What types of blogs do your like best? (examples: DIY, cooking, journal, etc.)

Blogs about everday life and photography.

15. What is your favorite Bible verse, your "life verse?"

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." ~ 1 Timothy 4:12

That was fun!

Grooming Toby and the color of my ipod!

Yesterday Mom got a grooming kit for Toby so me and Lindsay could groom him. That way we don't have to bring him anywhere or pay anyone to do it. After we watched the DVD it came with, we marched Toby outside, gave him a quick bath, then got to it. Lindsay took a few pictures...

We had fun with the shampoo and gave him a mohawk on his back. ;)

Notice how thrilled he looked. ;)

The end result.

Now he smells good and looks cute! :) I don't think we did too bad of a job, especially considering it was our first time grooming him. What do you think?

Now I'll tell y'all the color of my ipod. Y'all had some good guesses, but only one of you got it right. And that was... Taylor!! She guessed pink, and pink it is! :) 

Thanks for guessing, everyone! It was fun! :)

I'm So Excited!

You wanna know why? Well, it's because yesterday afternoon I bought myself one of those. Yes, an ipod nano! :D

I've never had an mp3 player or ipod or anything like that (until now), so I'm pretty excited about it. :) Wanna guess what color I got? I'll let you know a little later in the week.

Drinking out of the water bowl meant for the birds. ;)

He's so cute. :)

They're almost here...

My favorite months of the year! ;) I was thinking the other day that, pretty soon, we'll be making wassail and looking out the windows at the snow falling. Hey, it snowed towards the end of October last year, so it really isn't that long away. ;)  But seriously, 2010 only has a few months left, then it will be 2011. This year has gone by too fast.

I'm very excited, because the last few months of the year are my favorites! :)

We're reaching my favorite time of year...

Random Pictures... :)

I just thought I'd post a few random pictures I've taken lately. :)

We went to Sonic during Happy Hour last week... So good. :)

The peaches are about ready to eat...

Raindrops on a rose petal...

Little berries...
