On what I did in the Holidays

So the Holidays are over and school is back. Partly I'm happy because its more structured and partly I'm sad because it means I have to get up at a specific time in the morning and to bed a certain time to get up again in the morning.
The thing's I did in the Holidays were not that many:
I celebrated Christmas which was a very beautiful and memorable day. I felt that it was indeed a beautiful and faith-filled Christmas. Filled with Family and laughter and joy.
Boxing Day: I didn't do many things on Boxing Day. It is always our recovery day, because Christmas is a very long exhausting day too. Mum and Dad went to see the Hobbit that evening...and loved it.
27th: Went and saw the Hobbit; it was amazing! :D
New Years Eve: Watched Thor with Braedon
He liked this part a lot, I think. 
 and the other older kids and Mum and Dad. Braedon seemed to like all of Thor's funny things he said,but he didn't think that Loki was that great a bad guy or his ambitions that great either.
New Year's Day: We went over to a friend's place and a lot of other Homeschooling people were there too. I met a girl named Rosemary and spent a lot of my time talking to her. I decorated a Pavlova while I was there as well. It was a very nice day. When we arrived home, about 30 mins later it was about 9 o'clock and Braedon had made dinner while we were out too.
My family and I went to a talk held at someone else's house who we know. I missed the actual talk though because I was helping with the little kid's who were watching video's and other such stuff because they wouldn't be able to understand or sit still. Two of the speakers were American's. One, was the President of Campion College and from what I heard him say, he's got an accent. :D Probably not an accent to fellow American's but to Aussies he did. :P
I bought a couple of books including the Scarlet Pimpernl which I have been searching for, for ages.
We had our very good Chinese friends stay with us for a night. It was a goof thing that it was Fish and Chips for dinner.
I finished reading the Hobbit and it was very good. Mirkwood and the end have got to be my favourite parts. I'm sooooo looking forward to the part where Thorin finds out what Bilbo did with the Arkenstone!
It will be very interesting. :D
I went bowling with Braedon, Autumn, Eden and Saxon last Thursday. We were invited by the older L kids so there was five of us and  four of them.
So I didn't hit all of them down in one lot in like ever. :P I was actually about the second worse
 I wasn't the most fantastic bowler; I sort of threw the ball onto the floor and it flew a little before it bounced finally (and very loudly) onto the ground. Thank goodness we were at the end of the line where the desk was farthest away from, tohugh there was a small desk right behind us where the people who worked there didn't go all the time. Plus, because of the interesting way I bowl (it was Braedon's idea not mine) I chose the heaviest balls.

Yes, so that's what I did in the Holidays. A nice lot if I do say so myself. Those things which I've listed are th major things I did. :)

The importance of pockets on aprons.

Most people wear aprons to keep themselves clean when they are cooking and cleaning, not me! :D
My Mum says I'm rough on clothes which is probably true and it would make sense if I ever remembered    to wear an apron but
most of the time I forget.
For me apron's HAVE to have at least one pocket, or forget it. I made my own apron a few years back, with my sister Autumn and I remember it was a nightmare at the time, but its lasted a few years from the
This isn't what mine looks like. My apron covers my shirt too. It wouldn't be much use if it didn't. 
and I love it to bits!
My apron has a nice pocket on the left side of it. I use it for two things and two thins only: One, to put small things like toys and sting and other such stuff like it which I am too lazy to put away or two, to put my phone in. (I use it only for music in case you're wondering).
Because I usually wear a skirt and I don't like pants very much my apron is the only way that I can listen to music and audio-books while I do jobs. It wouldn't be so great if I didn't have a pocket in my apron.
Aprons are protections for clothes, but they are also great for putting things like and I-Pod in. It's not a full apron if it doesn't have a pocket.
In short, I love my apron! (Because it;s got pockets. :P)
God Bless

2013 Yikes!!

I really should have posted this the other day but I had a really full day because we went out to a barbecue at a family's place we have met in Wagga. It's quite a change for us though.

I stayed up the night before New Year's Day (and the first hour of new year's day). We watched Thor with Braedon who had promised to watch a movie of my choice because I watched something of his on Boxing Day.
It was kind of annoying how they're wasn't really any fireworks.  Delayed action kind of thing.
Does anyone else think that 2013 is a funny number? Just when I was starting to get used to 2012!
The highlights of 2012:
See this? It's bad for you! 
Going Grain 'n' Sugar free.- Yes, that was a really big thing for us. No bread, no wheat, no sugar. Adapting was difficult at first but than it got easier. We do have sugar and wheat now and again. Like when we go to  social gathering and there is sugar-filled wheat-filled stuff and than we get grumpy, hyper and stuff like that
Celebrating my Mum's and Dad's 25th Anniversary. -What more can I say? They're both so awesome and I love them both so very much. We made it very special for them...even decorated the table with silver pots and pans seeing as it was their 'silver anniversary'. And to another happy 25 years!!!
Moving-. We moved to Wagga Wagga, New South Wales on the 1st of September 2012. It was the adventure we had been talking and dreaming about for quite some time. We still have to sell our house but hopefully that will happen soon. We've met so many friendly people since we've moved ad it has been a real blessing. And I thank God for it!
Braedon and Anna-Lisa

Engagement- Braedon and Anna-Lisa became engaged in September. Braedon took Anna-Lisa out to dinner and than proposed to her in the Memorial Gardens. We leaned about it the next evening. We guessed though when Braedon said they weren't coming over until Dad got home. The Wedding is now set for the first or second week of July. They've even found the church where they are going to get married.
Christmas- Of course. :P Christmas is always a big event in our home with all the cooking and preparation also the going to Midnight Mass and the Midnight feast afterwards. :D It's always very exhausting.
The Hobbit- Seeing in at the movies was amazing. We've (meaning my family)  been waiting for years to see it! I am so delighted that its the new year now and so I can say, "The next part comes out this year!" You'd also be interested to know I've been reading the Hobbit. :) I'll be prepared next time. :D

I've made about fourteen new year resolutions but the ones of the top of my head are:
Read the Hobbit and all the LOTR. Exercise every day. Get up at 6:30 am each day. Read a chapter of my Bible each day(I did this one last year) Be a peacemaker and mind my own business. Spend more time doing craft and puzzles and that sort of stuff. Spend more time with my younger siblings. Well that's about half of them anyway.
And I just like to say!

God Bless
