Photo Dump // February 2017

Is it time for another photo dump already!? Where did February go?
This was pretty hard, and I don't think I'll ever want to see the second month of 2017 ever again.
But of course, in the midst of all the pooh, there were the good moments. Ones that make me smile real big, and people think I'm crazy.
I had some good laughs, especially yesterday. Goodness! I don't think I've ever laughed so hard on my life!
I'll talk more about that when we get to those pictures, ;P

So, here are some random pictures from my life this past month. :D

When you're making cookies (this recipe) and your brother grabs your phone and says, "We need a selfie." *laughs* best bro ever.
 Just chillin' with tea at Auntie and Uncle's.

 How I end my day. When I have time. *winks* You know how busy life can get.

 Huckleberry Finn. My kitty. Just cause he's cute.

My outfit I wore to LaKaysha's surprise party.

Sweet cousin, Emily, bought me a coffee when we were running around town before the party.

 Getting ready.

 And my food. Kirsten says I should've put coffee in my cup before I took the picture. That probably would've been smart.

Ridin' home in the rain and dark after a day in town with sisters, cousins, and aunts.

 Used up the last of my Christmas present from Kirsten.
A blended salted caramel coffee! *dies*

 On LaKaysha's birthday a couple of us left our Grandpa's house to run down to "Bud's" to get ice cream. I wasn't planning to get anything but when I seen the malts on the menu... How could I not!?
And look how beautiful it is! My very first malt and it was AMAZING!!! <3333

And this is "Bud's". I put the quotations because it's no longer called that, but we're creatures of habit. Isn't it just adorbs!!!?!?!?!? (I have sat at the counter, but as you can see, there was people there so we were like, "yeah, no." *winks*)
 babysitting the cute little cousins. Walking Jubal outside to keep him happy.
 a random picture of the back of my head. *laughs*

A beautiful day. Reminding us that spring is finally coming!!

Olive Garden with the gang. <3

 No, I haven't forgotten "Father Knows Best", but I've learned to love "My Three Sons" just as much. Even if my family doesn't. (we actually got Felicity to sit down and watch one episode with us!!)

 listening to music and sanding the pantry door.

 Doodling in my brothers room and listening to an old tape.

The Louis L'Amour I am still working my way through. It's so long! And life has been busy. It's a well loved book, and is falling apart, so it's kinda hard to hold. *winks*

Sitting in the swing and enjoying to sunshine. 

While Felicity takes LaKaysha's birthday pictures. 

 eating carrot cake and just chillin' *winks*

 after grocery shopping my mom took me to try out the new pizza place in town.
I liked it a lot. Better than Uncle D's, but definitely not better than Rocky's. *winks*

 my masterpiece on the pantry door. *grins* that was a lot of work.
this is what "chilling with the sis" means. *laughs*

 I was bored, so I took the time to curl my hair with my wand. I took a picture to prove that it actually curled. But it did fall flat real fast. I will never get my hair to stay curly!

 My Aunt and Uncle from out of town came to stay with us this past weekend. (actually, they left today) Here, I am sitting on the porch swing with Emmeline. Such a sweet talkative little cousin. *squeezes her*

 Our pasties cooking in the oven. *grins*

 a random picture of our kitchen light. I don't know why.

 lunch after church. *grins* (Emmeline's grin the background *laughs*)

After Burgerville, we took these gals to Walmart. I think we made their day! And Emmeline almost killed me with her cuteness as she ran around looking and commenting about every little thing!
On the way home, she fell asleep. It was so cute when she woke up! One second she was sleeping and the next she was like, "Guys I was so tired!!!!" *laughs*

 This is what we laughed our heads off at! In the above picture, I'm walking on the moon. *winks*

But this is when we laughed. We were taking turns "going on a roller coaster". Some people were screaming and almost passing out!! I couldn't breath I was laughing so hard!! *laughs at the memory*

Well, there you have it.
I hope you enjoyed!

Did the end of February sneak up on you too? 
Have you ever used VR Vue Goggles?

Our Best Moments // Ranch Video

Well. I said I was thinking about posting the music video I made of bits and pieces of a weekend we had last August. And people told me I should, so I am, and here it is.

In August of last year, a group of us loaded up and headed out to a place we call "The Ranch".
It's really just a cabin in the mountains that was a huge part of my childhood.
There are no horses or cowboys at this ranch. Some cows, yes. Some of the ranchers use the land to let their cows graze.
Really, this is place that we go to relax. Get away from the busy-ness of life, and just have fun.
We drive four-wheelers, shoot guns, swim in the river, play games, go for walks, or whatever you want to do.

This weekend that the video is about was the first time just us "young kids" had gone up with just us. No grandpa or parents.
Just us teens and such.

I was a little nervous about that. But it ended up being one of the best weekends of my life.
So I took some of the videos and pictures and put them to music.

I used the song "Seminole Wind" by John Anderson because... well. When ever I hear that song I will forever think of that trip. It was the song we heard over and over late into the night as Roger, Gavin, and Lando learned to play it.

Some of the videos were Felicity's, some mine. And all the pictures are from Kirsten. *grins cause she's so good taking pictures*

There are some mess-ups in this video.
For one -- I didn't spell Gabrien's name right. *blushes* I was just guessing, k?

Well! I hope you enjoyed!! ^_^ 

P.S. I can't figure out how to get this video to work when I'm trying to watch it on my phone, so I apologize to those of you who can't figure it out either.
And sorry if it's fuzzy. I don't know what I'm doing, over here! *hides face in hands*

When You Have a Million Cousins

When you have a million cousins like me... 

-There is always someone to text when you're feeling blue. 

- Always someone to do stuff with. 

-Always a silly memory to laugh at. 

- Always someone to wink at when you're bored.

-Always someone to take funny selfies with. 

- Always someone to drink an Arizona with. 

- Always someone to buy you coffee. 

- You'll never run out of people to hug.

- You'll never manage to go anywhere without at least one.

- Always someone to wear cowboy boots to church. 

- Always someone to melt your heart. 

- You'll never have to eat ice cream alone. 

- You'll never have to eat anything alone. 

- There's always someone to carry you when you break your foot. *winks* 

- If you haven't been embarrassed in awhile -- they'll take care of that. 

- Always someone to shout out a random fact. 

- Always someone to look cuter than you.

- Always someone to go on a walk with. 

- Always a reason to smile. 

- Always someone to laugh at you and think you're weird.

- Always someone to text randomness. 

- They never see the shy side of you.

- and there's always someone to miss.

I love you ALL! 

P.S. I've been thinking about posting a music video I made of our trip to the Ranch last year. 
Would y'all like to see that?
