How addicted to blogging are you?

So my sister Allison told me about this quiz "How addicted to Blogging are you?" So here's my score!

57%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?
It turns out I'm 3 or 4 percent more addicted than my sister!! Although it may sound funny because I don't post as much but it is true!

Moriahs 13 Brithday and new Projects!

For Moriahs 13 Birthday I made her a Pink Purse and a Small outfit for her poodle, Hadassah. After I made those I found out another friend of mine was having a birthday soon so I made her one as well. A younger girl in our church had a birthday coming up also so I made her two little purses out of the extra material. And here are the finished products! Unfortunately I forgot my camera and don't have a picture of Hadassah wearing the outfit I made. Enjoy!

Hurricane Ike

So its been a while since hurricane Ike but I said I would post something about it! So here it is.

Thursday before the hurricane my dad woke us up at 6ish and said we were going to leave. So we set out for AR after frantically packing. We soon learned that our area was under a mandatory evacuation, so we were very fortunate to get out early! After driving for a while my dad changed his mind and said that we were going to go to Tyler since AR is 8 hours away. So we went to Tyler and stayed in a small cabin. Saturday the electricity went out and some trees began to fall around us, so we huddle in the hallway for an hour or so and waited. It was soon over but we didn't know when we would get power back on so we decided to leave Sunday. We found out are home had minor damage some fence fell over, and we lost a little bit of siding but that was about it. We lived without power from Saturday 'til Thursday.

So that's my brief summary of Hurricane Ike.

A Simple Letter...

A hand written letter is really something to treasure! For the longest time I've kept all the letters and cards I've received. Although I like the birthday cards and others that I have gotten, the ones I treasure most are the letters I receive from my dearest friends. I love to handwrite letters instead of typing them, even if my handwriting's bad; it means more to someone than one you quickly type up.

Letters aren't what they used to be; we now have a more sophisticated way of sending news... e-mail. I still like to use cards; it means more than a e-card or e-mail to someone. Although I find it hard to put time in for this like this it's worth it!

This is one reason why I will be taking a computer free month starting Sunday. I will be without internet for 30 days. (unless something comes up) I will have some scheduled posts during this time. I will be keeping track of all that happens and post about it when I get back. Have a great month everyone!
