The Help

I haven't blogged in forever!
I recently got to see the movie version of The Help, and then read the book.

The movie was one of the few where I thought they definitely did the book justice. The only part that was excluded was icky and unneccessary in the first place.

The book was absolutely fabulous and fascinating and one of my favorites! I loved it and defifnitelyy want to read it again.

Cute Cousins!

This is me and my older cousin Brigitte dressing up in some cute clothes our uncle brought ack to our Tante Maren from India. There are more pictures somewhere, but for now, this is all I can find.


My brother is now nine years old! As you can see from the picture he had an awesome Pirates of the Caribbean birthday cake. Now he's in fourth grade and is in the same class as his best friend, Chase. Happy birthday Matt!

Girls Camp

Yesterday I came home from my first time at Girls camp. Our camp was kind of unusual, because instead of going to a lake or something, we went river rafting. I took a little disposable camera with me so I had something to remember camp by. The bishopric came with us and brought, "weapons of mass destruction," also known as guns made of PVC pipe. We went down the river in rafts and little inflatable canoes we called duckies. The first day we got there around lunchime, and after going down the river for a while we stopped and had ice cream. After everyone got some, the guides started an ice cream fight. I had a ton of fun!

Of Boys and Bubbles

A couple of days ago, josh had his friend Gage over and they made bubble makers. Then they had fun being the chefs in our restaraunt and making all sorts of confections out of bubbles. Then, when I got sick of being the waitress, they "cleaned" the entire patio.

New outfit

I have not blogged in forever!!!

My mom made me an awesome new outfit using fabric from Hobby Lobby, old jeans, an thrift store bracelet, and a spare headband. Eventually she is going to add a ruffle to one of my shirts to match.

Last Thursday was my birthday! I amm now twelve! My mom made overr my room for my bithday and I love it! She has pictures of it on her blog. I got some super cute jewelry and a video from Matt, and a little desktop toy from Josh. It was awesome! The day before my mom took me and my two best friends to Cherry Hill and then Yogotogo. Morgan gave me a ducky necklace and some new chalk pastels and Tailor gave me a pillow pet. The funny thing is, they both used the exact same bag, just in different sizes!
