'Twas the night before Christmas

 'Twas the night before Christmas, 

 when all through the house

 not a creature was stirring, 

 not even a mouse.

The stocking were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

 The dollies were nestled all snug in their beds,

while visions of chocolates danced in their heads.

It's not supposed to be chocolates, it's supposed to be sugar plums.
So? chocolates are better.
What's a sugar plum?
Just what it sounds like. A plum covered in sugar.
See? chocolates are better than sugar plums, because people actually know what they are.  
hmmff. Sugar plums are classic.
Hey, guys, we have people listening, and a post to finish.
I still don't see why I'm not in any of the pictures! It's not fair.
It'll be ok Elizabeth, because you'll definitely be in the Christmas day post.
We're posting again tomorrow?
No, mama is, and it probably won't be tomorrow. Now back to bed, quick!

Merry Christmas!

Happy thanksgiving from the dolls!

Happy thanksgiving everyone!

As well as setting up this, I made corn bread, watched charlie brown's thanksgiving, and drew some idea sketches to draw my family as ninja. (what can I say, I'm a neeeeerd)

The cat is obviously being driven crazy by the smell of the turkey, and my sibs have been making crazy ideas for minecraft and playing on our step-grandpa's phone, and Oma and mama have been cooking. 

My laptop decided to try to murder my patience again. Yay. 
Luckily, mom came to the rescue. 🙂

Have an amazing day, and don't eat too much before dinner!

what are you doing for thanksgiving? do you have any family over? 
are you at family's house? whats your favorite part of 
thanksgiving dinner?

Yates mill (I think???)

duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, GOOSE!!!
I disappeared.
I won't even try anymore.

A few months ago we went to Yates mill, (I think) with a bunch of homeschool friends, and I got lots of pictures. 

 lilypads. 🐸


 A snowy egret.
verrrrrrrrrrry tiny. look in the back.

 that's better.

A small friend of Daisy, and Ivy's legs there in the corner.  

There's the mill!

 Yeah....we were on the rocks. a LOT.

 The rocks!

The mill!

The water!

 The dam!
(anyone else thinking about Percy Jackson?)
We had a picnic on the rocks, and discovered a snake, and the fact that we didn't pack enough lunch. 

We found a tiny turtle. ♥🐢 

 The top of the dam.

The rocks were really fun to climb on. We climbed for a long time, while the mom's were talking, but than this lady came and told us we weren't allowed on the far side of the rocks, where we were climbing. hmph. 
So we climbed on different rocks.
 There were stairs going up the hill past the mill, (lol) and it had stone walls for railings. More precarious, and therefore more fun. 
(The flowers were growing by the path)

 There were some nice plants on top of the hill, as well as a door into the mill. (locked)

 There was also a little place to stand over the dam and water wheel.

And some cute little red flowers. 🌹

Until next time!
 What would you like to see more on this blog? Did you like the 
pictures? Have you ever been to a mill?
