Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Seasonal Greetings!.png

It is Christmas time! A time of Joy, Love, and Peace and most of all, the birth of Jesus Christ! It is a time of rejoicing, repentance and waiting for Jesus to make his second coming to earth.

I took some photographs of our Christmas Tree and I wanted to share them with you all!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

How to stay warm, cozy (and hip!) in winter

depositphotos_117224796-stock-illustration-hello-handdrawn-word-letteryng-good-e1511962177596.jpg Welcome back to my corner of the web!

As you all know it’s getting colder outside (unless you live on the equator-if so chill like a boss and put those jazzy shades on) We are saying Goodbye to Fall and Hello to Winter.

It’s amazing how God created the Earth to have seasons, and when the seasons change the Earth reacts a certain way depending on where you live. If you live in Texas, the weather doesn’t change much and you would hardly ever get snow, But if you live in Ohio you might have mild winters and damp spring rains.

So if it gets chillier where you live, around winter, then here are some tips that might help you stay warm.

Long, Knit socks are super cozy and they keep you really warm. I have a pair of grey socks that are so comfy!

Hot Drinks.png

I love to drink Tea when it is cold outside. Drinking Tea is relaxing and not addictive like coffee. I recommend Celestial Seasonings, their tea flavors range from fruity blueberry- to refreshing peppermint.

Get a cute mug and your ready to go!

kniegyufdscx.pngKnit gloves are cute and they keep you warm, they aren’t as thick as regular gloves so they are great for when you are out and about. I recommend getting a color that goes with everything. Neutral colors such as; Grey, Black and White will probably go with any outfit you wear and if your blogging, while your out and about get some touch-screen safe gloves.

Knit Beanies are also super cute and you can mix and match different styles!

This cat ear beanie is ADORABLE and it will keep you warm all season!

I hope these tips help you!

My story didn’t really turn out how I planned it would, actually I didn’t plan at all to be honest. This year we were pretty busy and I didn’t have enough time to plan in October. So when November started, I rushed into the story. By the time I was halfway through the month I realized my story made no sense, but It was too late to start over. I think that my story had a great concept, but I didn’t plan enough to make my story turn out great. I will probably rewrite the story sometime next year.

Overall I had a lot of fun testing my writing abilities. The story I wrote was in a different style. It was in verse, meaning that each chapter was in poetry. I really loved getting to know my character. I can’t wait to try again to craft her story.

Story Time; The Tale of an Older Sister

Story time one

Heyo and welcome back to my blog.

Most people think that being older means you’re in charge. But reality proves otherwise.

How do I know this? Becuase I’m am the oldest. And my siblings are always bossing me around. Especially my baby sister.

I’m going to share with how it’s like to be the oldest.

( if this is weird then I’m sorry. I was trying something new. So um yeah)

First of all little kids are cute and can get away with everything. Older kids come off to be moody. Becuase older kids don’t have the power of cuteness.

Little Kid: Mommy can I get a new toy? *gives you puppy dog eyes and smiles*

Mom: Awww of course sweetie.

Me: Mom can I please get a computer?

Mom: Not right now.

Me: But mom I need one!

Mom: We already got you an iPad mini. Plus we have tons of computers at home.

Me: I need my OWN SO I CAN BLOG IN PEACE WITHOUT MY SIBLINGS FORCING ME TO GET OFF!!!!!!

Mom: *does that mom frown that makes you want to melt*

Me: *feels kind of bad and embarrassed that I yelled in the middle of the store* You just don’t understand
Alright, another thing about being the oldest is that whenever you do something everyone else wants to do it too. ( Quick note, I will be calling my siblings A, E, and J)

Example

Me: Mommy can I use the computer?

Mom: Sure. Just make sure you don’t stay watch to many YouTube videos.

Me; Thanks! *starts to use computer*

J: Mommy how come Ava gets to use the computer?!

Mom: It’s J’s turn!

Me: * internally screams: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO*

J: *Comes over and smiles mischievously* Ava it’s my turn. Ava it’s my turn. * he keeps saying that over and over again*

Me: Wait I’m almost done saving my post!

J: *keeps repeating it*

2 minutes later my post I worked on for days is deleted.

That is a true story.  I’m crying right now. *takes a deep breath*

Even though being an older sister can be a little rough always remember that being an older sister is BOSS!

And if you’re not an older sister you are still Boss!

So yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post!
