Thanks MOM!!!

I just wanted to write a little blogger about my Mom. So i've been in the mood for spinach pie ever since my brothers birthday ( oct. 1st) and my mom decided to make it for me!! She must really love me. hahahha. I love my Mom, and i love her spinach pie!

It was the only thing that kept me going through six hours of college, and then three and a half hours of work. :)
hahah. i love my mom!!
And NO that's not a stain. her shirt CAME like that. hahahaha


Joe Christian

One of the most memorable nights of church thus far. hahah. Ok. Lori you've had some good ideas in the past, but 'the switch' was AMAZiNG!!! It was not only one of the funniest services, but i also got a lot out of it. haha.

Alright Alright. so if you aren't a highschool girl that goes to my church you proberly have no idea what i'm talking about. So we've been doing a PURE series at my church, and tonight was the final week of teaching ( banquet next week, PARTAY, ahah). They decided to seperate the guys and girls, and have the guy leaders answer the girls questions and the girl leaders answer the guy questions. BEST IDEA EVER!!! Here are some of the quotes from the night! Ah!!! haha.

Q: Why do guys like you one second and not the next?
A: No.. they don't. They like you all the time - Dougayy!

Q: Why do some guys make girls do all the work?
A: Cause that's the way God made it. - Zach

Q:Why do guys care if girls are modest?
A: If you want the right guy he SHOULD care. Every guy doesn't. How a girl dresses is the first thing that tells a guy that girls personality.
A: A guys job is to encourage modesty in a girl. The girls job is to encourage pure thoughts in a guy. - Peter
A: If you want to attract a mouse you put out some cheese. If you want to attract a scumbag, you dress provocatively.
A: ( jonathan talking) in general clothes are getting tighter ( dougay pipes in) WELL at least i know mine are! . hahahhaha

Q: Why don't guys care about personal hygiene?
A:Laziness, i can take a shower or eat some cold pizza. -dougay!

Q:Why don't guys have as much drama as girls?
A: We're a simple bunch. - Dougay!!!
A: We just have a brawl, then we're done. - peter

Some other great moments from the night, that i wont go into detail about.

" was it one of those, your in the band she's in the band"
"joe christian"
We were talking about lists of qualities a girl should have Doug speaks up " does she have a pulse". ahaha

Since my parents teach the Junior high here's a little story from theirs.
Q: What do you look for in a woman?
A: ( rj) Obedience, i want a wife that obeys me!
my dad - sounds like you want to marry a dog.
rj - when i get married i want to be the king!
dad - rj, i could see you when your married... walking into church with two pink diaper bags, one on each shoulder.

Well there it is. I love my youth group. sarcastic, fun, and in love with God!!!


Alright so here's the vid i promised. :)

YUMI ice cream cake. :P

perfect way to end the night!!! with JULIE :)


Chelsea Henson

Where to start, where to start. How about the beginning...

Well. my first memory of julie, is in C4J. her and i both had a crush on Jordan K. ( not going to say the last name.. although it's sort of obvious) and neither of us knew the other one did. I wasn't going to ask julie, i was only... what? 10, and i just started going to the church a few months ago. haha. but Julie, well she had to know, so, she pulls me backstage right before we do the offering and asks me right then and there. of course i lied to her, and said no i didn't like jordan.. haha. and we've been friends ever since.
Well this year we've become closer than ever. I'm am soooo blessed to have someone like her in my life. I couldn't imagine life with out her. She isn't perfect, but she's perfect for me. When i'm tired, and feel like relaxing, i sit back and watch julie entertain me. When i've got energy and want someone to be crazy with me... Julie is the perfect fit. When i don't stick up for myself, because i don't want to be mean, Julie is mean for me. She's always making me laugh, and always laughing with me. She gets my sarcasm, and she gets me with her sarcasm. She can also read my mind... ok. well maybe she can't do that. One day though! haha. She's a great christian, and she's not afraid of telling others what she believes ( even if sal will go on a 20 minute rant about a platypus ). But julie! when you read this. i want you to know i love you, and even though i just saw you for a lil tonight i miss you already... Love you!

Rache. :)



Ok. So.. i know i know... it's been a VERY long time since i blogged. ha. but Papa was so stinking cute i just HAD  to. i come home from cold cow, and this is what i find. My mom, Nana, AND Papa all putting ribbons on notebooks decorating them for my Mom's purity class. Haha. By the time my Mom finished 4 Papa finished one. I love Papa,.. i Love my FAM!!!

Papa, working away! :)
Close up. 
Haha. Their progress thus farr. :)



Thanks  to the wonderful weather. Me, Jeanette, and Michael spent a lot of time outside this weekend. It was a lot of fun, although we didn't get to try bumper sledding.... oh well, i guess we'll have to do it next weekend. :)
Jeanette and Scarlett sledding down the hill.
Isn't Scarlett's outfit adorable!!!

Bree was going CRAZY fast down the hill!!! 
.Jeanette. Scarlett. Me.Michael.


Juliette turns One.!.

The adorable, amazing, cute, loveable, smiling, enthusiastic, wonderful Juliette turned ONE.!. She's getting so big! i remember the day i baby sat for Bree, when she was having Juliette. And now this little cutie is already the big 1.  Well yesterday was her birthday party, and she was the best dressed there by far. Her outfit was adorable, as you can see in the pics. And she was so happy and cute and adorable! As usual.

Some things i love about Juliette are...
Anyone can make her laugh. Her smile. She is so daring. Her cheeks. Her laugh! The ways she waddles everywhere. The way she wears that tutu. haha. When she observes things, with absolutely no expression on her face. Her cry (its soooo adorable, i want my baby to cry like that, because then i wouldn't mind it as much).  When she hugs Madeline. When she hugs me!!! How she can be entertained with just a cracker for the whole time Bree and George where opening her presents. And so many other things, but most of all  I love that she loves me. 

Juliette and Me

Juliette and Madeline hugging


Maddy Time.!.

Alright, so my adorable little cousin Madeline came over, and we had an amazing time together. We started off coloring, and when the boys got too loud Madeline turned around and yelled, "Mike!! shhhhhh." it was so cute.

Madeline and my moo peeling and eating a clementine
Then they both worked it off, by lifting a few weights.
Oh. did i mention Madeline did my Makeup??
"Close your eyes Rachie". haha. she was sooo professional. 

After Makeup, we danced around the rest off the night, read a few books. Yah know, all of that fun stuff.  I love spending time with Madeline!!!


Card Night

Card Night

Tonight was soooo much fun. We had card night with the cousins. We all played either Pinochle or Euchre, and ate a bunch of pizza, brownies, amazing salad. yah know. Even though i didn't win it was still fun spending time with the cousins. Here are some pics.

Ok. although this is extremely embarrassing for me, since Bree was playing against me at the time, I must tell this story.  When playing Pinochle, if you happen to get All of the Aces, then you receive 100 points. As you can see in the pic, she has ALL OF THE ACES. Then the very next hand, her and Christa railroaded me and Michael G. 
Nina and Angie
My Dad and Jeanette
Ok. these two (and my Mom) worked sooo hard throughout the night. My Dad made the pizza's, and Jeanette cut them into pieces, and passed them out to everybody.
.Ha, i love this pic of George and Matthew.
The four winners of the night. George, Bree, Shalene, and Christa.
