Thanksgiving

I am so thankful that the Lord is healing my mother. It may not seem fast, but she is getting better and better everyday. So this Thanksgiving, I'm thankful that the Lord let my mama live longer in the earth, like she wasn't supposed too. So this afternoon we made this advent wreath that we are supposed to do today. I'm very excited!!! Our advent book that we are going to do is called Bartholomew's Passage. And my sister Kayli made the candles!!! Didn't she do a fantastic job?
So on Thanksgiving my cousin Jonah planned to do an Amazing Race. Which I thought would be fun and scary at the same time. Why? Because you never know what a very brilliant young man might do. So, Jonah said that the prize would be half a bag of tootsie pops. YUMMY!!!! So Kayli and I were on a team and I have to say that we were a wonderful team!!!There was also a disgusting thing. Oh writing about it makes me want to throw up!!! EEEWWW!!! OK, well it was like frosting with playdough and tons of sugar. And when I went to get the disgusting thing there was this bowl with the.......disgusting thing in it, and I thought I had to eat the whole thing so I started taking big spoonfuls of it. But then Jonah said, "Gross don't put it back in!!!" I said oh I thought I had to eat the whole thing. So I guess I didn't really pay attention to the directions. But I'm telling you that the stuff was GROSS!!!!!
But we ended up being in second place. The winners were my cousins Josiah and Solomon. And my sister Zoe and my cousin Tirzah were in third. But we still got a prize. We each got two tootsie pops.
What a wonderful Thanksgiving I had! And at the end we got to frost cookies. Yum...more sugar!!! We had sugar cookies, chocolate cookies, peanut butter chocolate chip popcorn, and Oreo truffles, chocolate pudding, and pumpkin bars with cream cheese on it. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you did too!!

Happily,
Victoria

Orchestra Hall

On Sunday we went to Orchestra Hall. My whole family went. Plus, we got two extra tickets to go. So, we invited my Aunt Carissa and my cousin Tirzah. We all had so much fun!!! Here is what the building looks like. The music was wonderful. We also got very good seats. We sat in the front row of the first balcony. But I wished we could go on the very top. But at least we got to go up in the balcony.
In the background of this picture there were cubes that looked like they were popping out at you. They were on the ceiling and on the wall. They had really funny music. One time there was a turkey coming out and he made really funny jokes. Then there was a star wars song and Darth Vader came out and was acting like he was the master of everything.
After the Orchestra we took some wonderful pictures. You can see that I have Molly in my arms. I got her all dressed up for her first Orchestra concert. I put her hair in a bun myself. My mom did Dorthy braids in my hair, It's from the Wizard of Oz. I loved my cousins hair. She said that she left her hair in braids for two days. Kayli had two little braids and my mom weaved in a ribbon in each braid. Zoe already has wavy hair so my mom put in a very cute clip in. All of our hair was very beautiful that day.
Then after, we all went to Starbucks and my sisters and I got caramel and peppermint steamers. What a fun day we had!!! Thank you for following my blog.
Happily,
Victoria

Campfire in the backyard

This afternoon we decided to go make a campfire after school. Zoe and I went to start the fire. We got the wood, and put the newspaper in. Then it's time to light the fire, well that's a long story. I don't know how many times we tried but it was a lot! We probably used 30 matches!!! We would get it on fire and then it would blow out! What's the deal here? Finally, we got it to burn and started roasting marshmallows. But we burned our marshmallows into charcoal. It was really gross but really good at the same time. I thought this was so funny. Kayli's marshmallow was on fire and she kept blowing...
And blowwwwwwwwwwwinggggg....Finally it blew out but.......... It didn't really turn out good. So she picked out the black stuff off the marshmallow!! lol!!
We had a blast! But in this picture in the end it was very messy!!!
Well it was very fun. Thanks for reading!!!

The Tea Party

When we stayed at our cousins house we had a tea party. It was soooooo much fun!!! We also did it with our dolls. I love doing tea parties with the people I love!!! Here are some tea bars Tirzah, my cousin, made. The Tea bars were so good !!!!!

We wrapped our presents that we gave each other in bandannas. Cute.

We had a wonderful tea party. The tea was so good.

Molly at the salon!!!

When we were at Mall of America we went to the American Girl doll store and saw Molly's hair really curly. So we asked a hair salon person [who was a BOY!!! Why would a boy work at a American Girl Doll place?] And he said look in a book. So we looked in a book and it showed us. My mom thought we had to use a curling iron on it, thank goodness we looked in it or else we would have ruined her hair. So we went to My Personal Salon and did Molly's hair. Here is her hair with curlers. And After!!!!! I love Molly, she is so special to me.
