My sister Emily's birthday is coming up soon! She's super excited... when we mention her birthday. Otherwise, she forgets about it. If you ask her what she wants for her birthday, she'll say to you, "I want a men" (that's exactly how she would say it!) "and a horse, and a men." She likes barbie men... she makes them wrestle. I don't know why. Don't ask. She absolutely LOVES horses. She's never been near a real life one, and I think she would be a little scared. I know I was, sort of, because I never knew horses were such BIG animals. Emmy has all sorts of toy horses. She has Bullseye, from Toy Story 3, and she has several miniature that come with cowgirls, which she adores.
I have a treasure hunt planned out for her birthday. She loves treasure hunts, and we only do them not so often on birthdays. The map, I'll admit, is pretty cool. I partly copied Tim's (my oldest brother) old map, which I doubt anyone remembers unless they see it.

Hope you have a good week!

It's Official!

You'll never guess!! My oldest sister, Melissa (also the oldest of the family.) is pregnant! Another nephew or my first niece!! Yay!!  I'm so excited! Of course, we don't know whether it's a boy or girl, but a lot of us are betting it's a girl. I can't wait!

                                                  We also got a new truck! Her name is Beauty, because our friend who owns a truck called his 'The Beast', so of course, we thought of Beauty and the Beast. Doesn't get any better!

                                          Sadly, I didn't take either of these. But aren't they beautiful? That's the kind of pro photography skill I hope I'll have when I get a camera, or one to fool around with.
                                            This one was taken by my oldest brother. I think it was in Hawaii. But he DID take it himself.
Just too pretty. I couldn't resist.

I hope everybody's doing well, and I hope that sometime I'll have a giveaway. I kind of would, but who want A tiny little heart shaped basket? So tiny, it could fit a jar of potpourri in it... and cute for a decoration. Actually, it could be a prize... for a contest maybe. Who would want it? Just holler 'I.'  

Well, have good week!

Hello, World ;)

How has everyone been? I hope the answer's "great" or something like that.
When I say everyone, I mean the world! So I say "Hello, world!"
Today has been so warm, everyone wore shorts and T-shirts... and no sweaters! Yay! That must mean spring is urging winter to go away and make room for warmer weather. I sure hope so!
What if I gave my blog a new name? Would that be bad, or would you like a change? Ooh, I have a good one. "The Rowdy Roy Household" or "The Rowdy Roy's." I think I like the first one, how about you? Okay, I'm REALLY considering on doing it. Really, I am. Instead of, It's going to be yes, I know. My brother just told me that that was really hard to read. And it's as long as the Frich Family Farm of Faith. is their blog. It's really great. Well, my title is almost as long as their title. I'm going to change the blog name in a bit, so you have time to read this and remember. As we say, "Hokey Dokey, Smokey!" (Okay (pronounced oh-key) dokey, smokey)

Oh, yeah. What do you think about my idea of putting stories on here as well? We could start on one of mine, or start on yours, or make up one all together. I don't care if you have to make the comment boxes REALLY big, as long as you got your part of the story in. Everyone's free to help!

  Well, hope you have a great week!

Augh! Summer, come back!

I'm going to die if summer won't come sooner. Come back, summer! Oh, the agony as I look back at pictures... of US in the SUMMER sitting in the SUN having such a FUN time! That is Sam (above), reading, sitting in the sun, and enjoying a mocha after swimming... yes, it is such a hard life for him. Poor Sam... (the sun is hard to see, because of an umbrella BLOCKING the sun. Aah!)
I'm dreaming of out boat going fast on the water, with two innocent kids sitting on our two-man viper (we used to have three-man, but we decided we would like the two-man), clinging on for their lives, screaming their heads off, as they come perilously (did I spell that right? wait a minute, nobody does school in summer! :) close to falling off. After that, everybody scurries to the showers, fighting to see who gets them first, as there are only two showers there (we ALWAYS go to Blue Angel. Big Lagoon is just okay compared to Blue Angel!).
Well, I just hope that all the while we aren't at Blue Angel (Florida, don't forget!), it'll be miserable doing school here, so we'll enjoy that vacation to Florida.
Have a good time (I mean in summer. And now, but mostly summer. ;) today!

I absoutely

hate not being able to go rock-climbing with everyone, or at least going on their adventure (details below:)
love picking to stay home and have the best steak and cooper salad with potatoes and garlic bread (fingers greasy.. beware!)
wish summer would be here already.
love her piano teacher and lessons.
wish I had a camera and gmail.
wish my blog would be better. (hints, anyone?)

I'm really considering in turning my blog into what I'm doing and putting my stories up. If I do that, anyone could help me fix parts, edit things, and get their name into a might-definitely-be-published-book. Vote, please! I'm working on some stories, so you can have your pick. Please answer questions below! It would really help!

1. Stories, or no stories posted on my blog?

2. If I posted stories, would you like to help, or just read?

3. If you wanted to help, would you like your name in the book? (only your first name and last initial, please)

4. If you would like to help, I'm working on two stories. One is named 'The D-team' and the other is named 'How Paige Joined the Fairy Realm.' Your choice. Please tell me in the comment box below! Thank a lot. ;)

Ok, the adventure I told you about (above) is coming up. I only know part of it, so you can get details later on.
Joe, Sam, and the girls (Rachel and Christie) were going rock-climbing. The girls and Joe usually went, but Sam was just going so he could hang out with a friend he'd met recently. Well, about half an hour before we ate dinner, my dad left. With my brother Dan, and they left kind of hurriedly. What was going on? Joe was somewhere, and was backing up, and thinking that he could back up more.... went into the ditch and had to be towed out. Aw MAN! I would have loved to have been on an adventure like that! It's nothing compared to being caught by a park ranger... ahem, doing (heh-heh) something we were really supposed to be doing. If you want, I can put that in my next post, so just tell me, okay?
Well, anyways, hope everyone had a great day, and a great dinner, and everyone have a blessed day tomorrow!

Happy New Year

I know it's a little late in saying, but Happy New Year, everyone! New Year's Eve, some friends of ours invited us to their house. When we got there, Ms. Jeanne (our hostess, my mom's best friend), had a 1000 puzzle piece out.... and she said it would be grand if we would help her. So you know, we agreed, but we only did a few pieces every now and then.
It's time to go, and it's about, eight or nine thirty. I don't I wasn't looking at the time, but anyways, everyone but my big brother, Joe (who had gotten up at five to go fishing...) and I stay where we are, to help with the puzzle, after saying we'd be back home soon. Ms. Jeanne couldn't go to sleep because she says she can't go to sleep leaving something half finished... so it had to be completely put together before we left.
much later...
Yay us! We finished the puzzle and now it's 12:30 and time to go home! Yeah, really. We had four people at that puzzle, starting at the time everyone left. Joe told my mom twice we'd be home "soon," which was about three hours later.
