My Life Lately!


Happy National Pie Day!! Yup, that’s a thing. 😂😂 Well, I have not done a My Life Lately post since December, so I thought I should probably do one! 🙂 Let’s get started!

1. It snowed TWICE! The first time it snowed, I did not have my camera. 🙂

2. My siblings and I have been having a lot of picnics recently. They are super fun to have, except for when our cats come and try to sit in our laps while we are eating. XD XD

3. We went to the library recently and I got a book called Bunnicula. So far it is good! What are some books you like to read?

4. We have been watching this really cool show on Netflix called Planet Earth – it is SO cool! It looks like it is just going to be some boring documentary, but it is actually really cool! I can’t really explain it – you would just have to watch it. 🙂

5. The flu is really bad where we live. A lot of people are getting it. 😦 Thankfully we have made it so far without getting it. 🙂

Well, folks, that concludes another My Life Lately post! 🙂 I hope you all enjoyed!

Thanks for reading!

What is your favorite thing to do outside? Have you been watching any cool shows recently?  


Snow Day! ⛄❄️


 Yup, you read that right!! IT SNOWED!!! So, this is a big deal because we NEVER get snow. And this is the SECOND time it has snowed this winter! 😮 😃 I got up early on the day it was supposed to snow, and there was no snow outside – it was just freezing and windy. After that, I kept reloading the weather page and it was changing constantly. Then it started raining tiny ice cubes, and then rain, and then SNOW!! IT. WAS. AWESOME. Here are some pictures I got while my hands were freezing off. 😂😂

Snow is so pretty! ❤️ ⛄

I always feel like each photo needs a caption. 😋😋

These flower things were so pretty!! 😂 ❄️

Snow on our porch. 😊

Some of these pictures were down by our creek. 😀



As soon as it started snowing my siblings and I went outside and had snowball fights and built snowmen. 😀


I LOVE SNOW!!! 😍😍😍

This is my favorite picture. 📷 😊


One of my older sisters wanted me to take a picture of this cat pawprint in the snow.🐱😊


One of my older sisters boots covered in snow. 🙂

One of our goats named Anne ate the snow! 😂 I went out to there pasture and got a handful and held it out to her, and she bit and licked it! 😂

Yay for snow!

This is when it was snowing. 😊😊

We made snow angels with the snow on our porch. 😋😋

And finally, my snowman! Ta-da! ⛄⛄ He does not have a name, but boy is he cute! Tell me what you think about him!

Thank you all so much for reading!

5. Which would you rather have right now, a gumball or a candy cane?

Jess’s answer: Gumball!! Gum is so fun to chew. 🙂

A Photoshoot By My Little Sister!

I hope you enjoyed that! 🙂

Also, WE GOT SNOW!!!! 😮 Okay, I know most of you get snow all the time, but this was the first time I have EVER actually seen snow falling and played in it!! 😀 It did not snow a ton at our house but we drove to a nearby church and played in the snow there. 🙂 It was awesome.

Thank you all for reading!

Goals For 2018!


Hi, everyone! 🙂 2018 is so soon! I cannot believe it. 😮 Christmas was great! How was your Christmas? Don’t forget to check out my last post here and leave some questions for Jess! 😀 Do any of you want me to do a Christmas haul post?

I am going to tell you guys some of my goals for 2018!


1. I really want to try to get 100 followers before the end of 2018! 🙂 I will do a giveaway when I get 100 folowers, so I need ideas of what I should give away. Do you guys have any suggestions?

2. I want to finish reading the Narnia series.

3. I used to do this thing on my blog called “Choose a Drawing Tuesday”, where every Friday, I would do a post asking for people to comment below with ideas of things for me to draw. Then, I would choose my favorite idea and draw it. I would post the drawing on Tuesday. I want to start that back this year! 🙂 What are you guys’ thoughts?

4. Make some new friends in the blogging world and in real life!

5. Learn guitar! I have been kind of working on it, but I want to do it more in 2018. 🙂


Those are the main 5 things I want to do in 2018. 😀 Thanks so much for reading! I hope you have an AMAZING day! 🙂

What are your goals for 2018? When do you take down your Christmas tree?


Merry Christmas! 🎄 🎄


Christmas is so close, guys! I cannot believe how fast 2017 has gone by!! 😮 What are some of your best memories from 2017? Mine are going swimming twice a week with my best friend and my siblings, doing a lot of fun traveling, and going to an AMAZING fireworks show on the Fourth of July! 😀

My dolls are also excited about Christmas! They have been decorating, baking, and trying to peek at gifts for almost 3 weeks now. Jess wants me to give her the computer now. Jess is going to tell you about some of the things her and her siblings do around Christmas and show you some pictures! 🙂 Alrighty, I’m handing the computer over to Jess now! Bye! 🙂


Hello, everyone!! Jess here. 🙂 Today, I am going to tell you a little bit about what my siblings and I  do around Christmas time! So as most of you know, the most amazingly fun thing to do around Christmas is PRESENT PEEKING!! You guys have got to try it. Seriously, it is amazingly awesome. And it is so easy because mom is SO bad at hiding gifts. So let us begin!


Here we have a picture of us getting ready for Christmas! Audrey-Ann and Kristoff are decorating a gingerbread house and I am wrapping presents back up that I just finished looking at. (Hehe…) Snow White is randomly standing behind the Christmas tree. (She is so weird. XD XD) And if you look really hard behind the fridge in the corner, you will see Merida eating cookies. XD


This is our shelf. It has stockings and random items. I love that snow globe!! 🙂 It is so neat!


Here I am wrapping stuff…


And me again! Boy! I must be pretty amazing for mom to keep taking pictures of me! XD XD


Look at Kristoff!! His eyes are so big and cute!! 😀


And here is a picture of Audrey-Ann holding candy corn. 🙂 I love candy corn, it is sooooo good. 😛 😛


Here are Kristoff’s shoes and my shoes.


Ah-ha!! I caught you red-handed, Merida! 😛 😛


Another shot of my weird little sister.


Thank you, Dollar Tree, for an 18-inch Christmas tree, ornaments AND a star. Guys, at our Dollar Tree they have perfectly doll-sized Christmas trees with lights, ornaments and a star that are all made to go with the tree!! 😀


Another picture of Audrey-Ann and Kristoff decorating their gingerbread house.


A close up of candy.


My darling snow globe!! 🙂 😛


ANOTHER picture of Audrey-Ann and Kristoff decorating a gingerbread house.


Seriously, mom?? More pictures of the gingerbread house??? I get that you got excited when you saw this at Dollar Tree, but seriously????? XD XD


Everyone. Take a good look at these amazingly awesome chocolate chip cookies..!!


Here is a picture of the star. My weird little sister is photobombing.


Yes, good mom. Back to pictures of me! 😛


Here is my older sister Audrey-Ann. She is helping Kirstoff decorate a gingerbread house. (HOW MANY TIMES AM I GOING TO SAY THAT??? XD)


And last but not least, ANOTHER picture of Audrey-Ann and Kristoff decorating the gingerbread house. XD XD

Okay, folks! That pretty much sums up what we do around Christmas. 🙂 Kaylyn from Kaylen’s World gave my mom the idea to do a Q&A with us (her dolls), and I thought that was a great idea! So, until January the 10th, everyone can leave questions for me (Jess) down in the comments! You can leave as many questions as you want, but I may just pick one or two. 🙂 Then, on January 12th, I will do a post answering all of your questions! 😀


Okay! This is Laura again. 🙂 I hope you will participate in the Q&A! 🙂

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a very merry Christmas!
