A Tag

















I Saw a Yellow Dog
by Abby


I saw a yellow Dog
one day Floating
on a raft and another dog on it.
becuse they did see me
the cat did see me. so i
just left. A tree spred its
leaves becuse its leaves
were dry and i lookd at the
yellow dog the dog lookd
at me We loved each
other. becuse we liked
the look of each other.


Here is a poem I wrote when I was about six. I don't really remember why I wrote it, or what I was trying to say. :)

Anyway, I made this into a tag a couple months ago, and I've decided to re-post it. Here are the rules:

Post something that you made or a story you wrote from when you were young.
Then tag 6 people.

I tag:

Ashley Jean @ Life as Teen Photographer
Lauren Anne @ Beside Quiet Waters
Marelle @ Marelle's Blog
Lulu @ My Polka Dotted Life
Kendra @ Ismekendra
Bethany @ Joyfull Girl Creations


And anyone else who wants to do it!

A White Christmas!



Yesterday it started to snow, and by the end of the day, almost one inch had floated down from the sky! Needless to say, we were very excited. :) Our first white Christmas in a long, long time!



Our snow speckled dog. She was excited too. :)


We made some automobile snowmen-- they are ready to go!





This one is the one I made.




Our played-with snow
















We had a good day of play, but I think one snow day is about all we Georgians can take. God blessed us with lots of beautiful snow-white snow. :D


Speaking of which, today is my sister Leah's birthday. She is turning 16! Click on the link to wish her a happy birthday. :)



I hope y'all had a good Christmas! May the true meaning of Christmas never be lost in our consumer culture.

PS Don't forget about my story contest!

My Stress Level is Getting Higher...

Wrapping gifts, people peeking
In the house, children shrieking,
A worrisome sight, we're stressed out tonight
Walking in a wrapping paper land.


Christmas is closer than ever. I'm not ready! I've still got presents to wrap, carols to sing, cookies to bake... How many of you are ready for Christmas?

♪♫ But most of all, Winnie the Pooh...♫♪















{Oh, stuff and fluff!} - Winnie the Pooh


I've always loved Winnie the Pooh... he is so cute! I've watched all the Winnie the Pooh movies that came out, but none of them are the same as the good old first ones. Now there's a new movie coming out (click here to watch the trailer). Are you excited or disappointed? I really hope it will be good.

Our piano teacher assigned me to play: "Frosty the Snowman", "Joy to the World", "Toyland", (the last two are duets) "We Wish You a Merry Christmas", and "Ukrainian Carol of the Bells".
