Greg had her babies!!

Greg is the mother to 11 beautiful baby ducklings! There's not even an 'ugly duckling' for they're all so cute! she had them today. She normally lets my mom and I get close to her, but she's being protective of her young even to us! I guess that's best though. enjoy the pictures!

Tonight the Christian band MercyMe is playing at Frist Baptist Church, and I'm going!!! I'm soooooooo excited!!! This awesome thing happened a few days ago. I had to go to the court house, which is only a block away from the office I work at. Since I was walking, I was worried it would start rainging since the sky looked really dark. I prayed to God asking if it couldn't rain while I was out. It ended up raining, so I went in and waited for it to pass. It did, so I walked to the court house. I felt a couple of raindrops, but I guess that was just dripping off of trees. When I got back to the office and was heading up the steps, it started raining! God answered my prayers of it not raining on me! It's so awesome that He takes the time to answer the smallest of prayers! Last night, my dog, Kaos, got a hold of a baby opossum! It was a little scary, and I'm now scared to go outside in the back yard. funny huh? I'm hoping she doesn't have rabies or anything. Mom said she doesn't, as she's up to date on her shots and there wasn't blood on her mouth, so she didn't bite into the animal.

A Little Bit of Good News

I have a few good things to share. First off, my cousin Joey got a job with the state working in Corrections. He's excited about it, though it scares me! lol. Secondly, my dear friend Rebekah Olm has a new nephew, Jonathon Seaborn Olm! Thirdly, my brother was one of the guys that helped escorting the President as he drove to Tuskegee. He said they sent out a warning on the scanner saying, 'We've lost the President' and went a different way to Tuskegee, in case there was anyone following their route. And the Secret Service had another car go down the original route that looked just like Mr. Bush's. I thought that was kind of cool. Well I must go.

Yesterday was a nice day! The day before, I was bored, and nobody was home, so I just called people I don't really talk to anymore; I happened upon Nick Watson's number, so I called him. It's been an entire year since we've talked, so it was good to catch up! He asked to come over the day, so he rode his bike down here yesterday! I was walking outside when he came up, and we didn't recognize each other. We walked to the pond, where a fish jumped out of the water at us, scaring us both! We also walked near the pond, and the basketball court. We could have kept going but he said he was feeling out of place, as it was Prattville territory. He got the assumption that if a kid from Prattville High School knew he was here, and he's from Stanhope, that they'd pick a fight with him. Sad to say, that WOULD probably happen. Well that was my day. It may not sound like much, but it was nice being with an old friend!

All good things must come to an end

This weekend has been great! But as always, all good things must end and I need to get back to my normal weekly routine. Friday, I made some favorite foods around here: pimento cheese, and some apple-thing with no name! lol. Saturday I went shopping with my sister. We went to Dillards and also two second-hand stores. I found great deals on skirts! Sunday: today I went to church at Prattville Community Church. They had a little program for Easter, and never have I seen a small country church so full! They had little skits, and the choir sang beautifully. While watching the other teenagers acting out different events, I really wanted to be on stage too! So I think I will go through with the acting classes this October at the Shakespeare Festival.

Another busy week

The past few days have been a little busy! Tuesday my nephew came by, wanting to show his daddy the chicks he got from the feed store. One is purple, one blue, and one is a normal one. They were so cute! I don't know how the people changed the color of them, but it looked sort of neat!
Wednesday I got a few things for prom; shopping is always fun!
Yesterday I had band class, which was nice as always. I got sick though, which is never pleasant but quickly and strangely recovered!

Today is the normal school and work day. I may even talk my mom into looking at fabric for a dress. who knows? well i better run!

Yesterday was great! My Aunt Pam and Uncle Larry surprised us with a visit! And they brought their little dog D.O.G with them.

After they left, we went to a neighbor's house, where my duck Greg is nesting. She has 10 eggs!

And later we went driving. I had no idea where I was going so I panicked and had to let mom drive. It was funny!

Well that was my day. gtg!

Yesterday my brother had a scare at work. For those who don't know, he works at Kilbey Prison, as a guard who takes the prisoners out to work. Well, yesterday he was outside and two guys came up to him saying, 'You're gonna get what you deserve''; and saying other inappropiate things. They looked like they were going to hurt my brother, so he punched on in the face, and another in the chest. I don't really think violence is good, but what else could he do to protect himself? He was a little shaken, but he seems better now.

Onto a happier note, this afternoon I'm going to my sister's house to try out hairstyles for prom!
