A Pumpkin Sort of Day!

Friday, we thought we would do a brunch! We had pancakes, sausage, and coffee. I was super hungry by the time we ate, so I devoured my food. Our reason for the brunch was to celebrate autumn.

We were also celebrating by carving pumpkins. We got the pumpkins from our friendly neighbors who have a pumpkin patch. We bought a pumpkin carving set, so we were able to carve some pretty creative designs.

My brothers did a traditional Jack-O-Lantern face. Abigail did Sponge Bob (which is super epic!). Mum and I did a Tardis, because we're crazy Doctor Who fans (actually, my whole family is).

My mum was busy in the kitchen baking pumpkin pies, roasting pumpkin seeds, and she even made pumpkin bread pudding (which is my dad's favorite dessert).

It was a pumpkin sort of day!
Love, Cecily

I'm joining Abigail's Blog Party!

Hi! I'm Cecily! I'm Ab's little sister! I don't blog very much, but I hope to start blogging more. So, I decided to do a blog party post.

I'm 15 and my mum home-schools me. I love schooling at home and I love my mum! (Yes, I call my mom, "mum".)

These are my siblings in order from oldest to youngest.

Jared 21, Abigail 18, Me 15 :), Silas 10, Jonas 8 and Harrison 4

Here are my blog party questions and answers.

1. If you could live in a fictional universe from any book, movie, or television show, what would it be?

I would love to travel with the Doctor in Doctor Who! (I guess that makes me a little nerdy.)

2} Little or big, practical or frivolous, what is one of your favorite items in your house?

I'd have to say - our piano. We've had it my whole life and it's been played by everyone who lives here!

3} Do you like animated movies? If so, what is your favorite?

I looooooove animated movies! One of my favorites is Tangled, but I couldn't pick just one!

4} What is your favorite household chore?

I'm in charge of keeping up on the dishes, so it better be my favorite chore! I love singing while I do them.

5} What's your favorite thing to get at Starbucks (or your favorite coffee shop)?

My family and I go to Starbucks often. I really like the Caramel Macchiato!

6} What is your favorite pizza topping?

Pepperoni Pizza is to die for!

8} Waffles or pancakes?

Pancakes are scrumptious! Waffles are just okay. (My mom would not agree!)

9} Do you like to play games? If so, what is your favorite?

I like some games. My favorites are Yahtzee and Boggle.

11} Have you ever dyed your hair?

No, I've never died my hair - but I am only 15.

12} Do you make your bed every morning?

I'm supposed to make my bed every single day, but sometimes I am lazy and don't.

16} What's your favorite condiment?

MUSTARD! I am a mustard freak!

18} What was the last thing that made you laugh?

You don't want to know!

19} Think fast...what's the first song that pops into your head?

Jingle Bells! Oh my word! Why do I have that song in my head?!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll look forward to visiting your blog!

Tell me one thing you like the most about Fall.

Tell me one thing you like most about fall!

Do you like to sit by the window and drink a cup of coffee? Read a book? Listen to music?

Let me know!

I like to do all those things. I also like to watch the leaves fall and think about how beautiful God's creation is.

Girls night out part 2!


We had a relaxing time on our girls night out. It was so much fun!

As planned, we watched TV and then more TV. We had plenty of Starbucks coffee and delicious snacks!


We watched a show that had chef competition. It was cool. I also like Say Yes To the Dress. DC Cupcakes was funny but I fell asleep so I missed some of it.


Breakfast was scrumptious! I had a pastry, some sausage, an egg, and an orange.


It was so much fun!

Girl's Night Out - Oh Yeah!

On Friday, in the afternoon, we are leaving for a girls night out! What girls? My mom, my sister (Abigail) and me! This will be our third Girl's Night Out!

We'll probably eat out (it will be a weird time to eat, but we plan to snack all night!), and then go check in the hotel at about 3:30.

For snacks, we'll probably get some chips and candy, cheesy pretzels (Mom's favorite), and bottles of water.

Our favorite thing to do while at the hotel is watch TV! We don't have many channels at home, so we love to watch cooking, decorating, and fashion (Say Yes To the Dress).

At some point in the evening, we'll leave on a Starbucks run, and then go back for more TV!

It's a very relaxing time!

I'll post pictures when we're back!

Thunder Storms

We have had a lot of thunder storms. The lights went off when we were watching American Idol. It was not fun because every time the lights went off my brothers started to scream their faces off. They were going nuts running around the room being spastic!

The storms went through quickly and didn't do any damage. I wish I didn't have any fear of thunder storms. but I do. My mom and my sister love thunder storms. My mom goes outside when thunder storms start to strike. Isn't that nuts?

Farm Life is So Much Fun

I love life with my parents and my brothers and sister.  They are so cool to hang out with. We have a dog named Truman.  He is such a good dog. He is so cute too!  We live in an old farm house on 5 acres.  We have an old barn that my mom uses a lot as a background for pictures.  It's a little bit scary though because it's old and has some rotted wood.  We aren't allowed to go in there unless we're looking for something in particular.

My mom is the best mom in the whole wide world.  She is fun to hang out with too.  Sometimes we go out alone and have a blast.  She is such a good cook. I love her food!  I think my favorite thing she makes is homemade cinnamon rolls.  I also love when she makes freshly squeezed lemonade.  It makes me wish warm weather would get here.

We have big 15 passenger van.  It is huge!  It's always messy.  My little brothers trash it.  

One place we drive our van to is to our little church.   We have church at the Salvation Army campground.  I love church.  It's such fun hanging out with friends there.   We have about 8 families at our church. 

We are so very blessed to have a God that saved us and cares about us.  I've been a christian for about 5 years.  I'm very happy that Christ saved me.  I wouldn't be anything without him.  I'm so thankful that he gave me my family.  They are so precious to me.  

Life isn't always so great.  I have such a hard time with school, but I love my teacher (my mom) and she helps me so much.  School's always been hard for me, but with God's help, I'll get through it.

Well, there's a little about me and my life.  

God bless!
