my 200th post

well, seeing how i always tell other people not to abandon their blogs, i suppose it's time for a new post from me. not much to post about, but i'll do my best.

yesterday was Deborah's baptism, so we had company over after the evening service. Brian and his parents, Aimee and Hunter , Oma and Pake, Rev. Van Dyken, Grandma and Grandpa, Josh and Becky, and Dave. There was lots of cake. I think Phil had like three pieces!

Tuesdays, me and Aimee work together at the Burlinton Bargains Galore. Fun!

My room is clean for the first time in a month- Like, really clean. feels weird...not like my room.

Except for the pile of clean socks i need to match.

I think everyone should read the Winnie the Pooh books. The old ones.

I'm sad because last year and the year before i was in Disneyland about this time. And I'm not this year. so I'm sad.

I'm really happy and excited because I'm going out tonight on a double date- me and Brian, and Josh and Becky. dinner and a movie. Lucky!

Too bad for all of you you can't hold my baby sister. she's a sweetheart.

last night, i went pigeon-catching with Brian and a couple other guys. the pigeons were kind of scary...they were making creepy noises.

i am now floor manager at my work. Lucky!

i really hope it doesn't snow anymore....but i'm pretty sure it will.

my Mom is due in like 11 days! it's supposed to be a girl, and i'm so excited!

i bought a new dress and some really cute new shoes. couldn't have done it without amiee and britt's help, thanks girls!

in case you've ever wondered what everyone's saying...


Words adapated from a traditional songby Rabbie Burns (1759-96)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

CHORUS:For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

auld lang syne - times gone by
be - pay for
braes - hills
braid - broad
burn - stream
dine - dinner time
fiere - friend
fit - foot
gowans - daisies
guid-willie waught - goodwill drink
monie - many
morning sun - noon
paidl't - paddled
pint-stowp - pint tankard
pou'd - pulled
twa - two

"You've heard of the golden rule, haven't you? ...The one who has the gold makes the rules..."

I think this quote is so funny. Do any of you know what movie it's from?

snowbound and bored

Britt ridin' her horse Maggie in the snow
Our farm/front yard
Amanda laughing because she is about to throw a snowball at me. ...She hit me too.
Phil dressed-up as "Rolie Polie Olie".

Me trying to hit Amanda. ....I missed.

"i used to love it's white, fluffy goodness, but now, it's just turned into evil, white madness. it's over." that's what Aimee just said about snow, and i completely agree!!!
