Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Friday Night Fun

 As Mom and Dad spent Friday night at a church function, Jacqueline and I decided to have some fun while they were out.  We made ourselves one of our favorite dinners, watched a chick flick and tried some hairstyles for a party we are going to soon.  We had a lot of fun just hanging out having girl time, and we think that we will make Mom and Dad go out more often.

Almost done...


Jacqueline also decided to clean our makeup brushes while she was at it.
She said I wasn't holding still enough.

Even cleaning the kitchen can be fun if you know how to go about it.

So... I'm behind in blogging, again. I guess it means that I have a real life and don't spend all my time tied to a computer :0)

  At the end of October our church held a  Reformation Day celebration complete with pie and chili contests, feasting, chit-chatting, a three-legged race and other games , a presetation of some of the more un-known but justly deserving of fame mayters of the Christian faith, and the finally the  no-party-would-be-complete-without-activity: dancing. I'd never danced before, so it was really fun to try.  I am quite positive that I could have danced until dawn if I only had someone to dance with!  One of these days we will have to try that. ( Just in case anybody was wondering Posties Jig is my absolute, all time favorite.) 

 When you get a gaggle of girls together, there is always plenty to talk about!

Isn't this a gourgous picture?  My friend Corina took all the pictures of the Reformation Day celebrations and was kind enough to let me use them.  If you want to see more of her amazing pictures, you can go to her blog, For His Glory
But, life isn't all parties and visiting.  Besides schoolwork, facinating books that beg to be read, and my job at the library, there are also my projects.  I have been working for most of the year off and on making blankets to take to the local NICU.

We have also been making a ton of soap to give as Christmas presents. We decided to make five different kinds, a goat's milk body soap scented with gardena, a peppermint and teatree wake-up bar, a rum and coconut shaving cream, a espresso bar, and a sandlewood bar.  We started making soap a year ago and loved the results. So we have spent the last year trying different recipes, finding the ones we like the best, and getting the process down.  I didn't realize until not that long ago that you can make landry and dish soap! Definatly a project for the new year!

So, I think I am caught up, for now that is.
