♪♫ I'm still dreaming of a white Christmas...♪♫

Okay, It didn't snow for Christmas, but hopefully it will snow later. Right now it is raining/sleeting
/icing. Not exactly snow, but close! I am praying for snow!!!!


We took down our decorations today. To tell you the truth, I was kind of sick of them. I know I will be excited next year, though.


2010! I can't believe it is already 2010. It sounds like something from the future.

Happy New Year, everyone!!!!!

A Book on Tape Recommendation

The Screw Tape Letters, by C.S. Lewis

This is a great tape. It is a very good book, too, but the narrator on the tape is wonderful.
It is a series of letters from a demon named Screwtape to his nephew. It is interesting to hear someone writing letters from this perspective. I would recommend it to ages 13 or 14+.

5 things about me

I thought that this would be a good chance for readers to get to know me a little bit better.

1. I like how the word circle sounds. (Don't ask me why, I just do!)

2.I used to bite my nails. (Or, at least, I'm trying to stop!)

3. My favorite dog is either a pug or beagle.

4. My favorite book series is The Series of Unfortunate Events.

5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read!


Alright, I can't think of any more. I will probably do this again later.

Random Thoughts

Today was school. :p I am doing Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra, and today was my first algebra lesson. It was interesting. Last week I had a math test and a science test. We are using Exploring Creation with Physical Science. I am learning a lot.

For devotions, we have been reading The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis. First we were reading it, but then we started listening to the book on tape. I like the book on tape better.

Then, next on my random thought post, there is dessert! Dessert deserves a paragraph all its own. My favorite dessert lately has been M&Ms. I love them. I also like to make milkshakes. DELICIOUS! :D

Christmas is just around the corner! We are having Christmas with my daddy's side of the family on the 20th. Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Maggie's birthday is on the 18th. We are planning on going rollerskating, a hard task with the little ones. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGGIE!

Well, for now that is all on my random thoughts. What did you think? Should I make more posts like this?

What has been going on in your life lately?

Book Recommendations

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
The Sherwood Ring by Elizabeth Marie Pope


These are two of the cleverest books I have ever read. They were part of our school curriculum.
The Westing Game is for ages 10 and up, and The Sherwood Ring is for about 12 and up. They were really good.
