I have moved to

Hope to see you there!

Newsboys Sneakpeek!

Last month, we got to go to a Newsboys's a preview! I hope to make a REAL post about it. Maybe next week.


The other day, my friend and I were standing in our church parking lot...and lo and behold, the lighting was simply Perfect! I was so excited, and she kindly put up with my camera in her face. :)
Here's a few of my favorites, made into a collage(my first try at making one of those).

It's a Bit Springish!

Finally: Brother Pictures!

Here is a face you haven't seen much of on my blog...specifically because he does not really enjoy having his picture taken. But: today I was victorious! And actually got some pictures of him! (applause)
Introducing my brother,

My Little Student

I have a little student, and she is a very motivated one. :)
A couple of weeks ago, she got her very own violin, with her very own beautiful black case, and her very own violin book that says: 
Maggie's Violin Book.
Right now she is learning the first seven notes of 
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, and allow me the pleasure of bragging 
that she is doing quite well at it.
Here's some pictures from the lesson we had this afternoon!

"A-A- E-E- F-F- E"

And this is how we put away our violins. 

"Maaaaggggieeee's VIOLIN Book!" 


And then we had to get some silly shots...(of course)

Queen Elizabeth

The other day, this sweet little girl came and asked me, "Abbie, I want to look like Queen Elizabeth. I need some clothes that look like Queen Elizabeth."

And so we found her a navy-and-white polka dot dress from the back of the closet, and a lovely crocheted hat to complete her queenly attire.

And of course, what queen is properly dressed without a classic hairdo?

Our hike

A couple of weeks ago, we went for a long hike with some friends of ours...

Here is their second youngest...isn't she just a angel?! :)
                                   More scenery...

And here is my lovely little sister...we had to corner her to get any good pictures of her!

One of their fine young gentleman...

Some recent pictures

Here's some recent pictures...unfortanutely I am not able to edit them as our laptop with my precious Photoshop is gone for a bit. So you will just have to survive the unedited ones!

This is our driveway, with some fresh snow.

A twig. Certain relatives of mine weren't very impressed, but I kind of like's a bit appealing.

Another that others weren't too sure about...I must admit it looks a bit, well, freaky,'s interesting.

Now onto some prettier pictures. This is in one of the last few patches of snow on my grandparents' yard. For me, the flower, the snow, and the grass symbolize new life, blossoming out of winter. Very significant to us right now.

It was warm outside (yes- WARM. For all my American viewers: Canadian winters are not always -40 temperatures and blizzards! This has been a very strange winter. End of January and hardly any snow! Weird.), so my brother T and I goofed around with the fabulous light (courtesy the sun) a bit.

This one's kind of neat, like he's holding the sun.

Aaaand...that's all, folks. Probably won't be posting very much, maybe a little here and there. Busy times ahead! :)
