Zoo Fun!

Last Friday while the warm weather was still here, we went to the zoo!!  It was lots of fun, but it seemed like everyone else had the same idea.  As we were getting ready to leave the zoo, daddy's electric scooter died, so we stopped let it charge a bit, tried to make it out and then it ran out again and so we had to repeated the same thing.  After we finally left the zoo, we went to Orange Leaf, a frozen yogurt buffet.  We had to pay 39¢ for every oz. that we put into our bowl.  It was delicious and lots of fun to put into your bowl.  Ciao for now!

Lots of Changes!!

This week Brooke got her braces off!!! She was so excited!  Now I'm the only one who has braces.  Today Daddy went to the doctor and found out that he has bronchitis, poor Daddy.  Laurel had a fantastic birthday with lots of little girls to help her celebrate it.  On the 15th all 8 of them came to Laurel's snow party.  We had a snowball fight that turned into everyone against me.  Figures.  One of the little girls named Rylee had said that she maid me a mini snowman, so she came over to give me the snowman and shoved it up in my face.  After we warmed up some we opened presents and drank hot chocolate.  Then they all played games until it was time to leave.  So far it has been a great start to the new year!  Ciao for now!

DADDY'S HOME!!!

After a week in Alabama, Daddy's home!!  He and our Nanny left last Wednesday and came back last night.  He brought back a teacup for momma and some confetti shooters for us girls, the only bad thing is he said that if we use the confetti we have to clean it up.  He went to Alabama to surprise his grandma for her 94th birthday, we were all afraid that she was going to have a heart attack, thank goodness she didn't.  When Daddy and Nanny got back they told us that Grandma Nicholson told them that it was the best birthday ever.  Well, I should probably get back to school, So long for now for now!

Christmas is gone, the new year has come!

Well, this Christmas was wonderful! I got to spend to spend time with all of my mom's cousins that I don't get to see very often.  But something else that I noticed about this holiday season is that I was thinking more and more about myself.  Thinking, when do I get to play with my new stuff.  When do I get to do what I want.  Well now it's back to school and I'm reading a book called The Purpose Driven Life, by Rick Warren.  It talks about not having a self-centered life.  After all we were put on this earth for GOD's purpose.  There's also a verse that I really liked. 
"Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to GOD leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life."  Romans 8:6 (Msg.)
 He ends the chapter in the book saying, "You were made by God and for God-and until you understand that, life will never make sense." 

Reading this just kind of gave me a little wake-up call, reminding me what life's most important things are.
