What a week. It went by so quickly! We have been doing so much. *sigh* it's great to sit down and post. :)
Well, yesterday was exciting, we ( Christa, Tiffany and I) headed over to the library with all the little ones. Mom dropped us off, and we had a great time exploring and checking out books. I got these two new books that Lois Lowry wrote called Messenger and Gossamer. They were both so interesting. And I liked how in Messenger I finally got to figure out what happened to everyone in The Giver and Gathering Blue (two other books by Lois Lowry). We also checked out an older version of the movie, The Scarlet Pimpernel, which we stayed up till midnight watching last night (and we only got through half of it!). It was funny seeing Ian McKellan in his 20's, I had to stop myself from laughing a bunch of times 'cause I kept on imagining him with a pointy gray hat and a staff. lol. He looked exactly the same, though. Good movie (at least so far, I haven't quite finished it.). My very favorite quotes are "Odd's fish, m'dear!", "Sink me!" and once in the movie when this lady is going on and on about how wonderful the Scarlet Pimpernel is (because no one knows who he is.) she doesn't know that she's talking to the scarlet pimpernel. She says, "The scarlet pimpernel must be an angel in disguise! God bless him...whoever he is!" Then the scarlet pimpernel takes some snuff and says, "Amen!" lol. I got a big kick out of that. :)
ANYWAY, so we got our books, and made a long trek home (Dad and Mom were tied up...not literally...you know what I mean. :D). Oh, and Tiffany got this awesome book from the library with a ton of hairdo's in it. She tried some of them last night on my head. :) Fun!
Well, Dad needs his computer...so....
Adios!

P.S. The pictures posted below are absolutly random...I just saw them the other day and thought that they were pretty funny...reminds me of some fun times that we've left behind us. (I think they were taken last year.)
To basically tell you what is happening in the photos, we are dancing in the rain. :) You'll probably recognize my older sisters and I. :)
