Chad, stop screeching like a little girl!

Good evening! Turkey violations anyone? I promised pictures so here goes!
 Turkey. Pre violation. Still clothed.
 Nervously awaiting the time of violation. Feeling slightly nauseated.
 Gooey. EW. I really didn't wana touch that. This is all for you, readers. I truly hope someone is reading this.
Dad- Just dig right on in there and scoop those guts out! Me- Ahhhh!!
 Me- I think I might puke. Dad- Not on the turkey!
 DEEP breathing. . .
Me- I have to flip this thing over?! Dad- And then pull the guts out of where the neck used to be! Me- I think I need to sit down. .
 What person in their right mind says," Hey! I think I'll make a tradition where we freeze turkey guts in a bag so people get to enjoy pulling them out!" ? Really?!
 Bag of innards coming through. . . seeing stars. .  Ugh. . I don't enjoy this reminiscing. .
 Turkey fresh out of the oven!
 The popper popped! That indicates that the turkey is done! How nifty!
 Before being served.
The turkey got great reviews! My 87 year old grandmother said it's the best turkey she ever tasted. That must mean something. . Haha or just grandmother's pride?
 Uncle Bubby's art! Haha he was extremely excited to have his bubble letters blogged! Haha he's so cute.
I drew the alligator. Without teeth. This is why I am not the artist. However, if you are interested pattyville has a few pieces of her art posted and it's grand!
 My Christmas list. Wonderfully decorated I think. Springy of course. I'm not too fond of the coldness. . Haha
The new addition to my list! Haha. The HUNK is a pillow. Not Daniel Radcliffe, sadly. Haha. Oh well, a girl can dream. lol

I have some funny quotes as well!

My Uncle Dave trying to serve my Granny:
Uncle Dave- No, I got it Ma.
Granny- No, I've got it Dave! I'm the mother!

Miranda and I had a sleepover again:
Miranda- Why do you want to know?
Me- Because I'm curious. . But, curiosity did kill the cat you know.
Miranda- *GASP. Look of utter astonishment* I didn't know he had a cat!!!!

Thanks for reading. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Supposedly chubby cheeks and feeling feet. Dedicated to Taylor :)

So, I have some quotes that I thought were quite funny. Hope you enjoy!

So, my mom got some new shoes that are blue and the look like those little holographic pictures that change so they kind change as she moves. Everyone at church was absolutely fascinated with them. One of my friends asked to feel them and so everyone was feeling my mother's shoes including this other man at our church and so he's feeling her shoes and he says," I feel so wrong feeling the foot of another man's wife!"
It was soo funny!

So, my sister was sleeping over in my room and we had just cut off the lights. It's totally silent and then. . .
Miranda- I have fat cheeks. . .
Me- You do not! There is nothing fat about you.
Miranda- Yes they are. They are so fat that when I run the go uh luh uh luh uh luh *Insert her using her hand to make her cheeks move up and down*
Me-Whatever. . . . You just have to grow into your face. Yeah. . That's it. . . . That sounded so stupid.
Miranda- Are you saying I have a baby face?!
Me- Uh. Yeah. I guess I am.
Miranda- Wahhhh. .
Me- But everyone does!
Miranda- Not you! You have a pretty normal face!
*She reaches over groping my face and then pats it as if that proves that it's normal.*
I cracked up!
Me- I am so blogging this.
Miranda- If everyone starts calling me chubby cheeks I am blaming you.
Me- Ok Chubby cheeks. Just kidding! You do not have chubby cheeks! By the way. I take this as permission to blog.

I do have her consent to blog.

A few minutes later I asked her a question she won't answer and she gives me the silent treatment.

Me- If you don't talk to me i am going to punch you in the chubby cheeks across the room and cheeks will be flying everywhere.
*bust out in laughter therefore breaking silent treatment*
Miranda- You just made my nose explode!
Me- With chubby cheeks?

Ohhh the things that happen when sisters have sleep overs lol

My mom let her ear piercings grow up. Only one grew up.
Mom- I wish I could wear earrings. I could always go for the pirate look.
Me- Bahahahahahahahaha! No.

 This is my mommy. Isn't she cute? And non- Piratey? Therefore we decided no on the pirate look.

Turkey cooking tomorrow. Pictures to come. Haha
Thanks for reading!

Thanksgiving! It's coming!

Thanksgiving is coming! I am psyched. I am going to cook the turkey. I had to fight my dad for it. I am kinda scared. I have a fear of turkey, neck, raw things, livers and hearts in a bag, and anything gory. But I am gonna do it. It weighs 20 lbs. 20 stinkin lbs. If it weren't dead I would be scared it might eat me. Don't tell my dad.

I have a friend, Rachel, that wrote a poem. It's fantastic. Like super. She wants me to put it on facebook. So, along with that I will put it here.

Hearts are like butterflies,
so breakable.
Just one word can send it away,
flying out of your grasp.

Isn't it cute?!

Did you know that if you put a snail on a plate and put pine needles (Their favorite food) in the middle they will go around and around the edge of the plate until they starve? Yeah, not too bright. And people call dumb people bird brain.. . . Birds are smart. Snails are stupid. From now on I will call not too bright people snail brain. They will be stunned. Stunned I say.

We are having pajama night with the little kids Monday. AKA tomorrow. I am stoked! and we are going to make little turkey hand prints and turn them into place mats!

Have you ever seen Nightmare Before Christmas? You should. It's hilarious. If you pay attention to details you will be cracked up. Like humpty dumpty  I say.

Thank you for reading! Jesus loves you! Have a great day!

Spider kids, hanging pants, and head biting

So, we are driving out of our cove and we see a lady walking her dog. Ahead of her are 2 kids. One dressed as good spiderman and the other dressed as evil spiderman. They are both running and flailing about doing what I suppose are "supercool" moves and next thing I know evil spiderman falls dead on the sidewalk and good spiderman is jumping up and down because he defeated the evil. Hahahahaha! These children are my heroes. Not just because of their costumes.

Mom- Chad, will you go put the laundry in the-- Why are there pants hanging from the light fixture?!

Lo and behold there is a pair of shorts hanging from the light fixture. Haha. We still aren't sure how that happened.

My sister, Miranda, called home Friday from school and told my mom that she needed to come pick her up because her head was bleeding. Just as calm as ever.
Miranda- Momma, I got hit in the head in PE and my head is bleeding.
Mom- Umm. Ok.
Miranda- Ok. bye.
Mom- See you soon?

They go to get her and she gets home to explain why her head is bleeding.

Apparently they were playing kick ball and a boy came running her way, fell on her, and bit her in the head.
So, my sister has bite marks on her head. That is the only way I know to explain such an odd situation. Haha

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Octopus stew!

                                         Nothing like some yummy octopus stew!
                                           Of course, he eats them heads first hahah. I didn't get to catch him with the legs hanging out of his mouth hahah
If you couldn't tell they are just hot dogs that we cut to have legs haha.

So, today the little boy we babysit, Barrett, was walking around humming.
Mom- Are you humming because you have something in your mouth you don't want us to see?
Barrett- Mhmmm. .
Mom- *holds out hand* Spit it out.
Barrett- *open his mouth and blows out nothing*
Mom- That's not anything. .
Barrett- Mhmmmm.
Mom- Were you sucking on nothing but air. . . ?
Barrett- Mhmmm. Yummm!


So, Monday I was working in childcare at my church.
My friend comes up to me and tells me that my brother, Chad, needs me.
He's 12. I really should not have to babysit him. I found him standing on a ladder in the hall. . . with a sign that he and his friend had jumped up and hit and knocked down. This was just not a good day for that. Normally this would not have upset me as much. Any who, They had knocked it down and broken the chain it was hanging by and they couldn't fix it. So, I had them write a note apologizing to the superintendent at our church for breaking the sign. They are scared of him. Really scared. They find him terrifying. The note they wrote said:
Dear Dallas,
    We're sorry we broke the sign. We didn't mean to.
Please don't kill us.

 I almost killed them for writing such silly things. So they re wrote it. Meaning I told them what to write haha.
They wrote the note and put it at the front desk.

The next morning we had to go to the church and pick some books up and my mom ran into Dallas. He said everything was fine and he appreciated the note. So, we came home and told Chad that Dallas got the note.
Chad- What did he say?!

Of course we had to have some fun with this.
Mom- He said it was inexcusable behavior and there will be punishment.
Chad- Oh no. .
Me- I have NEVER seen him so mad. . He was furious. .
Mom- He's gonna make you do 400 push ups in front of the whole church.
Chad- What?! I can't do that!
Mom- Why do you think he chose that punishment?!
Chad- I'm never gonna hit a sign again. .
Me- He'll probably tell the whole church about it. He was so mad. He's so mad I wouldn't be suprised if he hung you up by your toenails and one ear and make you the sign. It's not gonna be pretty. .
(This has been going on for about 30 minutes)
Chad- Oh my gosh. . I am never gonna make it Sunday. . What'll I do?! *almost in tears*
Mom and I bust out laughing!
Mom- Just kidding!!!
Chad- What?!
Mom- You'll never hit that sign again will you?
Chad- No! Never!
lol Thank you Dallas for being so seemingly scary!

These are they funnies of my past week or so. Haha
Thanks for reading! Have a good day

Don't eat the cheese!

    So there's some good looking, good smelling, delicious looking cheese, but this cheese left the refrigerator several days ago and has gone bad. Even though you can't see it, that cheese is not good for you at all, so don't get involved with the cheese. Don't let the cheese tempt you no matter how good it looks. Even if this cheese seems like it would be the best cheese ever, because it's secretly rotten. Don't let it convince you otherwise. Never let it convince you to go back on your pledge to never eat yucky cheese. ( I say this as an all around thing  because I kinda assume no sane person would say, " Hey, I pledge to eat a piece of rotten cheese at some point in my life.") Don't give yourself away to the cheese because it's just not good for you. The cheese has been out for days. It looks good, but you have your doubts. Don't push them aside. A healthy you is better than a lovely time with a piece of cheese that isn't as delicious and great as it looks.

P.S. This applies to more than cheese.

Thank you for reading!

Demonic and angelic interferences

Whoo. Long week and lovely weekend! Great Halloween.I had a ninja, Rambo, and a ballerina in my house this weekend haha. And a frazzled mom, but according to her it's not just a Halloween costume.
Quote for this weekend- If kitkat were a man I would marry him.

So we have a discipleship training class at my church and we had a i guess "Halloween lesson" on Demonic and angelic interferences. It was reeeally interesting. So, I have decided to share my notes. Here we go!

The bible supports a difference between angels working for Satan and evil spirits. More in December.
Hebrews 13:2
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
Angelic abilities- taking on human form, healing, physical touch, etc.
Angel is another word for messenger.
Angels could come down in human form because they want to learn more about us and why God loved us enough to send His son to die for us.
God gets to reveal little pieces of Himself to us for all eternity :)
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
An angel from Satan was sent to Paul as a buffer. God allowed that to keep Paul humbled. God never loses control. He LETS certain things happen.
2 Chronicles 18:18-22
18 Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing on his right and on his left. 19 And the LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab king of Israel into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’“One suggested this, and another that. 20 Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’“‘By what means?’ the LORD asked. 21 “‘I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said.“‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the LORD. ‘Go and do it.’22 “So now the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you.”
Interactions of evil and good spirits and angels.
Mr. Andy's thinking question- What kind of angel was this?
Job 1:6-12, 2:1-7
6 One day the angels[a] came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan[b] also came with them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”
8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”
9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. 11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
12 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.
1 On another day the angels[a] came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 2 And the LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”
3 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.”
4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give all he has for his own life. 5 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
6 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.”
7 So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.
Sons of God does refer to the angels.
All angels have the ability to take our health or come to us physically or mentally. Even battle over us.
Daniel 10:12-13, 20-21
12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.
20 So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; 21 but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince.
There are different ranks of angels.
It took three weeks to battle the Prince of Persia.
Andy's thinking question- Ever wonder why your prayers aren't being answered? There is more going on than we see.
Genesis 18:1-33, 32:24-32
1 The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. 2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.
3 He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord,[a] do not pass your servant by. 4 Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. 5 Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant.”
“Very well,” they answered, “do as you say.”
6 So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. “Quick,” he said, “get three seahs[b] of the finest flour and knead it and bake some bread.”
7 Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it. 8 He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.
9 “Where is your wife Sarah?” they asked him.
“There, in the tent,” he said.
10 Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”
Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. 11 Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. 12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?”
13 Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
15 Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”
But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”
Abraham Pleads for Sodom
16 When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on their way. 17 Then the LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 18 Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.[c] 19 For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”
20 Then the LORD said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21 that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”
22 The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the LORD.[d] 23 Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare[e] the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25 Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
26 The LORD said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”
27 Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, 28 what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five people?”
“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”
29 Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”
He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”
30 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”
He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
31 Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?” He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”
32 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”
He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”
33 When the LORD had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.
24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”
But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”
“Jacob,” he answered.
28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,[a] because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
29 Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”
But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.
30 So Jacob called the place Peniel,[b] saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”
31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel,[c] and he was limping because of his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob’s hip was touched near the tendon.
God incarnate comes. Two leave for Gamorah. The one referred to as Lord stays.
Jacob wrestles with God.
Angels have had mental, spiritual, and physical interaction.
To deny these things is to deny part of the Bible.
Andy's thinking question- If angels have their own physical form why would they need to move into someone to exist?

Hope that makes sense and things connect and the notes are right. Please feel free to comment and ask questions. I'm sure any comments and questions are helpful. Not only for you and others but me. It helps me put even more thought into it. Thanks for reading. I know it was a lot of reading haha, but it's very interesting.
