Fun Stuff!

Oh Boy! Fun stuff has been happening around here! First off...

MINI SOCIETY IS OVER! I don't know if I should put a smiley face or a sad face! I'm so glad it's over, but I don't want it to be over!!! It was SOOOOOOOOOO much fun! It would take HOURS to explain everything that happened, so I'm just gonna dive right in with pictures of everything I bought!!! By the way, Rebecca and I made 725 GEMS (The Gem fair currency)! We only spent about 400 :) Anyway...

Haha, funny story with this one... It was the end of market day and I was still walking around. I found this little plant, and to tell the truth, I liked the pot better than the flower :) But anyway, the guy didn't want to sell it, but I REALLY wanted it, so I offered him 120 GEMS! He said, "Really? Nah, I'll just take 20." Umm, O.K... 120 verses 20... Oh well!

50 DOLLARS!!! YAY!!! Oh, wait a minute, see the bottom one? Yeah, 'The Play Money of America'. Shoot.

A little box missing a Popsicle stick. Umm...

MY FAVORITE!!! They're little ladybugs made out of old egg cartons! How cute! Going from left to right: Lily, Rose, and Daisy (Joelle helped me name them :).


I got FOUR pencil holders! FOUR! Yeah...

A little flower. It looked like the little girl didn't have a lot of business and I felt bad for her...

A PET ROCK! It comes complete with instructions!

A Flower pot.

Mr. BedHead (Named by Joelle :)

And... a umm, coke bottle with a fake flower in it!

So cute! It's a cow bank! I gave it to Joelle :)

FOOD!!! Yes! Hmm, Joelle eating my popcorn... I also bought a cupcake and African donuts! Although, the donuts had nothing to do with African :)

One lonely sunglasses barrette left :(

Yeah, so we made TONS of money! This mini society was SO much fun, I would do it again in a heartbeat! It was so much fun to go around and buy stuff because I wanted to! I NEVER do that! I don't have the money to just buy whatever I want. But at GEM fair, people would say, "Why'd you buy that?" and I'd answer, "Because I wanted to!"


Fun Stuff # 2!

On Monday, I got out Joelle's pool and filled it with water. We've been waiting for the water to warm up (Well, actually JOELLE'S been waiting for the water to warm up!). Today, the water was finally warm enough to stick our toes in without being frozen off. At least, I stuck my toes in the water. Joelle did the whole sha-bang! Bathing suit, rubber ducky... the works :) The nice Summer sun and the warm breeze inspired me to take lot's of pictures!!!

Joelle VERY excited about her first plop in the pool!!!

Joelle was telling me the story of the woman who 'spended all her money and washed Jesus' feet with a smelly oil!' - Joelle style :) Joelle was trying to wash my feet, and it felt GOOD!!!

I thought this was a cool (If not weird) picture of Joelle's little blue cup :)

Hehe :)

Water. The wet kind.

Oh I love Joelle!

And while we're speaking of Joelle, could everyone PLEASE pray for her? Nothing is really wrong with her, but she is terribly scared of s-h-o-t-s. Like, DEATHLY! It all really started tonight when I was reading her the Berenstein Bears doctor book. She's also kind of afraid of thunder, which just adds to everything else going on in her head! So I would appreciate your payers, so Joelle can sleep tonight, and ME!!!
