The Holidays

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in like 15 days but my internet's been broken. :(

Anyway, I love Christmastime, the joy in the air, the feeling of giving. My mom is really into decorating this year so we're filling the house with a Christmas-like feeling!

We live in a smaller place than I realized. We ran out of Christmas trees real early this year so we bought an artificial one. We'll save money every year and we'll save a tree too!

The artificial ones are starting to look so real.

 
 

Loving the different settings on my camera! :)

corner view "books"

I love books, they can bring so many different feelings. Joy, sorrow, suspension, excitement, there are so many things you can say about books. Annabel is probably the biggest reader in the family, she loves a good story.

 
  She's always in her room, at her desk or on her bed, exploring adventure, magic, and fantasy.

Rainbow

It almost never rains where I live and so rainbows are pretty rare.  But there was a really warm rainy day and there were rainbows all that week.
A rainy day can start out like this... 
 
 
 
And end up like this...

Teacher, Gum and a Dog.

Sometimes, when Shawn's school has random days off, my mom teaches some first grade students at our house. And it gets VERY loud. So, to focus better, Annabel and I go to my teacher's house to study. It's fun. Sometimes we get mint gum at the end because she has a stash of it in her car and last time she had a puppy there she was babysitting!  His name is Sora.

 
 
 
 Ain't he cute? :)

Evening's the time where the day's kind of winding down,
dinner time, family time, time to finish up the old day and get on to the new one.

How Sweet is Shawny?

In Shawn's school, when the children do something good, they get fake money. There's a school store where the kids can pick out prizes. One day, when Shawn had been saving up for a really cool racing track, he went into the school store with more than twenty "dollars." He saw a white rabbit and knows I love stuffed animals. He came home with something behind his back and said, "Sky, close your eyes and put out your hands, I have a surprise for you!"

I did as I was told and something quite big was placed into my arms. I opened my eyes and before me was a white bunny with a green ribbon around it's neck. I gave Shawn a big hug and told him thank you. How sweet is Shawny?


But then I noticed that it had a battery slot so I put in new batteries in and we all had a really good laugh...

I hope it'll give you all a good laugh too! :)

Tom Hanks


Over the weekend, I saw Big for the second time. Then I saw Sleepless in Seattle. Then I saw You've Got M@il. Now I love Meg Ryan too. I really want to see Forrest Gump, but it's PG-13 so I might have to see it with my mom and dad. Oh well, here are some facts:

Tom was born on July 9th 1956.

Tom Hanks has done 70 movies and/or TV shows!

In 1980, he was placed in the TV show, Bosom Buddies.

He was 24 in his first film. It was He Knows Your Alone and he played a small role. (I've not seen that. I think it's a horror film).

His first major film was Splash at 28 years old. It was about a mermaid. It's funny! I'm going to see it soon! And when he did Big, he became an ultra mega star and got an Oscar nomination!! He was about 32 then.

Then he did Forrest Gump at 38 and became really really really famous.


He kinda reminds me of my dad. I think they'd be great friends. :)

Love surrounds my home, making it cozy and warm.
Warm because of the good vibe,
and warm because we live on an island that's 90 degrees in December.
Both of those reasons. :)
