Soccer at Notre Dame

Andrea playingThis weekend we went to the Notre Dame Women’s Soccer game. We got to welcome the ND team in with hand slaps.

Then my team got to play at half time. It was the first time I played 11 x 11. The field was small and there was lots of people on it, since we only played on half of the field.

They played a good game, but the one goal they made was declared “off sides” so it did not count. Notre Dame did good, but they lost by one point at the end.

I had fun! It was fun to watch older girls play soccer. I have a lot to learn!

Leaving for Camp

Andrea. leaving Daddy is driving us to our last camp of this year. We are driving 5 hours to go to Lake Ann Camp. It is a great camp with lots of fun things to do.

This year I am in Jump Start. I get to play in a bog, take a ride in an inner tube  down a river and hike some sand dunes. I get to learn more about God too.

Please pray for nice weather because I will be outside a lot! For help for me too as we learn verses and new song and I try to make new friends.

“See” you in a week!

I have been putting pictures in a local photography contest for the last couple of years.  I think three years.  This year I entered two pictures.

I had fun taking pictures and then looking for pictures to use. We went to a flower garden and I took the frog picture. It scared me at first because I did not see the frog.  But when I looked at the picture, I saw the frog.

We went to Bonneyville so Momma could take some pictures of friends.


I took the one of Megan walking. Momma helped me adjust the colors.

If you want to see the pictures, they will be at Concord Mall’s Community Room starting at noon this Friday until noon on 1 Feb.

It is my b-day.  We had pancakes. And a cup of orange juice for lunch. The pancakes had a cream cheese and sugar swirls.  It was good.  I am having a fun day.  We just had cake and ice cream.

Here is the pancake recipe if you want to try them too.

Make your favorite pancake batter. We made pumpkin pancakes with gingerbread cookie spice in it.

Make a cinnamon topping with 1 stick melted butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1 TBL of ground cinnamon.  Mix together well and put in a ziplock bag.

Make the icing by adding 4 Tbl softened butter to 2 ounces of cream cheese.  Add 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.  Mix well until no lumps remain.

Start baking the pancakes like normal.  But, after clipping a small hole in the bag, squeeze some cinnamon mixture in a spiral over the pancake before flipping.  Cook as normal.  When ready to eat, add cream cheese icing.

Daddy said these would be great for a Thanksgiving or Christmas breakfast!

Our neighbor showed us a bag like it (she made for her daughters).  I liked it, so she gave us the pattern.  Oma gave me the inside (material).  And I picked out the (pink outside) material and Momma bought it.

It was easy! But it looked hard. It took two days to sew.


Today there was a new baby alpaca.  When the neighbors called, we ran straight over.  Our neighbor called just after she pulled the baby out.  The momma was too tired. The vet said everything is okay!

I get to pick the name this time! I will be given three names to chose from.  Mark got to pick Wicket’s name.  We will know her name in an hour or two.


Name Update:  I picked out the name Luminara



Name Update: Her name is Luminara
