It's cold in Colorado...

4 days till' Christmas!
Hello everyone!

Okay so...first of all:
The city of Denver is in turmoil as we battle the snow. We had a HUGH blizzard. I don't know how much snow we got but we got a lot. It comes up to my knees but there are drifts everywhere that are much taller then me...My dad got stuck on the highway on the way home from work yesterday for almost 5 hours! He left at about noon and didn't get home until about 5. It was scary...it was just standstill traffic, cars just weren't moving. They had to get the national guard to rescue people. So...I got work off, and we've just been baking cookies, wrapping gifts (I still have to get out there and finish Christmas shopping! :s) The mountains behind us look really pretty! I was just telling my mom "I wish I had a digital camera!" So I could take pictures of the "aftermath" and post them on my blog! She told me to take my next paycheck and just buy one! (I think she is just as anxious as I am because she thinks she's gonna be using it for her blogging! psh...yeah right. J/K)

I had a wonderful birthday! Thank you everyone for the messages :) I had my grandparents and godparents over for dinner and listen to the old people talk all night. lol. I got some nice things from my family :) I got a book on WWII and a sweater from my mom and dad and coloring books, storage cases, and a chicken soup for the dog lover's soul book from my brothers, pajama's from Tony and Carol, a phone card from my godparents and I got my gift from my grandparents a while ago, lol, long story... Anyway I have yet more gifts to recive from friends! Just couldn't get them because of the SNOW!!!

Well I have yet some more exciting days ahead of me (Christmas and the Bronco game) So you will be hearing from me again!

yet ANOTHER boring post.


Hello!
Work and school, thats it....Everyone is getting sick.
details? Well I'm going to start WWII history, I loooove learning about WWII. I just got done learning about WWI. Umm...as for work my schedule has been full. I work almost everyday of the week for 4 to 6 hours. The Christmas season is pretty crazy. It gets busy.
I just got back from the nutcracker ballet tonight! My mom and I took Tina and Mikey. It was fun. It was very good! It was like the Colorado Ballet but still pretty nice! Carol was suppose to go with us but she got sick too. :(
My b-day is in 7 days! woohoo! I'll be 17. I probably won't do much. My grandparents will be here and that's it! I'm glad I don't have to work that day :p
Oh yeah! that scary wolf looking dog that killed my neighbors dog was taken away, now the neighborhood feels safer, lol.
hmm...I think I have all Christmas shopping done! yay!
Ahhh...I've abandoned Cookie, her cage needs cleaning! Bye bye!
Thanks for the comments :)

Busy week...

Hello everyone!
Man...busy week! Work and school mostly. And last night I went to the parade of lights downtown with Tony, Carol, my brothers, my Aunt and uncle and cousins. It was fun, my friend Kaitlin was in it and we saw each other :)
My mom is doing much better, thanks for the prayers and comments :)
Just got done watching yet another intense bronco game. Of course we lost...ARGG!!!

Well how bout' a little update of my special little sister! Renee is growing up so fast. She helped me make cookies today :) She is such a smart little 2 year old. Some of the things she says....lol. Although she is very cute she also has a bossy attitude. She thinks she is the queen of everything.

I just got done reading a book called "Arms of Love" it's a story about a Catholic girl and how she practices chastity...It was very good!

Well I'm off to bed now...My nice warm bed, it is SOOOOOOOO COLD here!!!!! I am so cold I can't move...So I think I'll go take a hot shower, that sounds good!
Goodnight!
Thanks again for the comments, Love you too Grandma! ;)

prayers please!


today is the solemnity of Christ the King!
Hello everyone!
Wow...lots going on!
First of all if you could please keep my mom in your prayers. She just had a miscarriage. Yeah she was expecting. We didn't get a chance to tell anybody! It came really early. She is very tired and exhausted right now and my dad has been out of town :( Prayers are greatly appreciated.
How was every one's Thanksgiving? Mine was great! I had LOTS to eat! I went to my grandma's. We ate then sat around and watched the Bronco's game, they stunk! Jake Plummer was making me mad. The whole team wasn't playing that great. Mike wasn't doing to well either...We play the Seattle Seahawks next weekend, we'll see how that goes.

I had to work on black Friday, lol, but Jo-ann's wasn't that bad. I think it was the bigger places like JC penny's, Macy's, Best Buy, etc. that went crazy. On the way home from my grandma's we saw RVs in the parking lot!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!
Man the radio stations are already playing Christmas music! I prefer waiting like the week before Christmas to prepare and celebrate CHRISTMAS DAY and keep on celebrating for the next TWELVE DAYS of CHRISTmas....lol.

I'm glad I have today and the next two days off so I can stay home and help my mom out. My day gets home Tuesday! But then he's gonna have to go to work the next day anyway...it stinks.
Tony and Carol have been helping out. I'm so grateful they only live 8 blocks down!

Well thats all for now!
Thanks for the prayers!

BORING!

today is the feast of St. Rose Phillipine Duchesne
St. Rose, pray for us!
Hi everyone!
Hmm....whats been happening? not too much, I just got back from work. Umm....Saturday I went to my aunts to help paint most of her house white. She is planning to sell it soon. Saturday night I went to Kaitlin's birthday party. That was fun, we went ice skating and had a sleepover. And Sunday I went to Tony's for the disappointing Broncos game. Man it was terrible. Plummer was not himself that night (well he's never his self, you can never tell weather his a good QB or a bad one) Mike B. did well though! So did Jevon Walker, he always tears the games up. I think he is the MVP, I'm not sure.

Anyways...oh, my mom and I also went to a high school craft fair. We got some nice Christmas gifts. Tomorrow We're going to some field trip and Thursday I'm going to my grandparent's for Thanksgiving. What is everybody doing for Thanksgiving?

Well I need to get to bed, sorry for once again another boring post about my life...I'm sure you all love hearing about it, lol!

Today is the feast day of St. Margaret of Scotland,
St. Margaret, Pray for us!

Hello!
Hows everyone doing??? I'm alright. I did school today and that's about it :s Tomorrow I have a babysitting job from 9 am to 2pm and then it's off to work from 4 to 9pm....I was suppose to work yesterday but Jo-Anne's was under budget and couldn't afford payroll so I had the day off, I would've like the money though because Christmas is coming up!!!!! The Budget is going to go up during the Thanksgiving sales though. Are you all ready for Christmas shopping? What are you all doing for Thanksgiving?
A
anyway...I sliced my finger making dinner today. First time I've cut myself in forever. (It wasn't that bad, lol.) my finger hurts though. lol.

Thanks for the comments Eliza and Mauri :) You're true friends! Mauri, I read the original version of Beowulf...ugh...Now I'm reading Sir Gawain and the Green Night re-told by Tolkien, its better ;) lol. Thanks for the long post! Do I owe you a letter? I'm sooo bad, I'm sorry.
Eliza, you should be getting a letter any day now! And I've been checking you're blog everyday! Time to update! :p

Okay, g2g2 bed!

The usual....

Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing well! Just got done watching the Bronco game. They won again, but it wasn't a great game. We almost lost against the sorriest team in the division...
Anyway...I might be going to a game next Sunday!
I worked yesterday...I got some really rude people >:( I didn't lose my temper though...lol. We also had a baby hurt himself in a cart. His foot got stuck, he was about 9 months. poor baby....He was okay, someone put lotion on his leg to make it slip out easier and it worked! ugh...I found out I have to work the day after Thanksgiving :( It stinks...

I have to tell everyone a kind of funny story. It wasn't funny at the time though. Okay, my friend Katieri has a bad habit of joking around too much and she told me she had cancer and made it seem so real...so I believed her which is one thing I will never do again...so she e-mailed me and told me she was to sad to talk so I didn't call her (at first I didn't believe her) So my mom came home and I asked her to call. So my mom calls asking if Katieri is okay, and her mom is like what? she was sooo mad at Katieri...hehe. I was mad at her too. I'm still mad...

Well, I g2g catch up on some school reading! I just got done reading Beowulf, has anyone ever had to read that for school? Very violent...lol

Field trip today.

today is the feast of Blessed John Duns Scotus
Blessed John Duns Scotus, pray for us!

Hey everyone, sorry it's been awhile ( I always say that, huh?) Not to much going on really. We went on a field trip today at the Chamberlain observatory. Today mercury was aliened with the sun. So through the biggest telescope I've ever seen, I got to see it! It was a small black speck moving through the middle of the sun....It was awesome. I'm not much for astronomy but it was fun :) It is fascinating!
our elections didn't turn out to well....We got all the pro-abortion people including our governor. We are ruled by Democrats now...
And now I'm off to youth group!
I work Friday and Saturday, maybe something exciting will happen so I can write again, lol.

Until next time,
Michaella

Day of the dead

Today is the day of the dead
Hello!
Today we went out to the Mount Olivet cemetery for all souls day. We visited my great grandparents graves, and our friend Rebecca's grave. It was sort of a field trip. We brought 'pan de muertos' it means bread of the dead. It's a Mexican tradition to make those and sugar skulls (we just made bread shaped into skulls, sounds weird but they turned out great) We did grave rubbings also. I really like visiting the cemetery. It's sad to see the children's cemetery though :(

I had fun at Casa Bonita's. Mike Bell is really funny...
Here is a picture:


Okay! G2G2 mass! Not much else going on! So until next time!

ALL SAINTS DAY!

Today is all saints day
Hi! Sorry it's been a while....
Haw was every one's Halloween? Mine was boring...lol. Took the little kids trick-or-treating with Tony and Nick. They got so much candy they HAD to split it with us...omg, I've never seen so much candy! Damien was a pirate, Mikey was spider-man and Tina was a cheerleader.
Renee is doing much better from her surgery...She's still really sore. Not much else's going on...just work and school. I'm going to casa bonita (Mexican restaurant, there's a waterfall with divers, a Mexican band...uh forgot what they're called band and other cool attractions) tonight with my Tony, Carol and Mike Bell. I'm going to take my bronco hoodie and have him sign it :) The Colts game on Sunday was CRAZY. we lost but we still played good. Mike made two touchdowns!

Not much else! Hopefully next time I'll have something more interesting to write about...lol


HAPPY ALL SAINT'S DAY!!!!!!!

I will miss you Hawk Nelson...

<------HAWK NELSON. My favorite band *sniffs*
Hello!
I woke up this morning and we got about 6 inches of snow! Yesterday it was warm enough to wear a t-shirt...the weather changes really fast here.
Lets see, not to much going on. I won tickets to a concert on the radio but I can't go because it's 45 minutes away on a Halloween night so no one wants to go with me...It was Jeremy Camp and Hawk Nelson (Hawk Nelson is my favorite band in the whole world) So I'm pretty bummed, considering I'm not doing anything on Halloween night.
Renee is having her hernia surgery tomorrow morning so keep her in your prayers, I'll let everyone know how she does.

And I have to work this weekend! woo hoo....That's really about it, lol. Just sittin' around doing school, nothing to exciting.

So that's about it!!!!

Busy weekend

Hello everyone!
life has been a little crazy...work and school. I had a busy weekend. I went to Homecoming with Katieri (pics below) That was fun. We got the courage to dance, lol. I stayed the night and Sunday I went to my aunts house for a girls birthday for my mom, my aunt Sue and me. I got some cute things :) Some purses, a watercolor set, a book about Monet, some things for my room (candle, pillowcases) $25 to Target, fuzzy socks, a shower set, scarf and gloves, and a few other things. My birthday is December 19th, we just celebrated it really early thins year, lol, I'll still celebrate it with my family in December.
After that I came home, watched the Bronco game. Of course they won 13 to 3 against the Oakland Raiders. woo hoo!

I have a lot of school to catch up on so I better get my day started :s

Oh, yesterday was the most interesting day...Mikey some how fell through our glass table , yeah. His foot has some nice cuts in the bottom but he was very fortunate! I have no idea what he was doing. I had the lovely job of cleaning the glass up...sighs.
Damien hurt his shoulder on the trampoline, Nick stepped on my foot and bent my toenail back so now my toe is all blue, Nathan trip and banged his elbow on the wall. I'm sure something happened to Renee. Yesterday was the day for hurting yourself, did any of you hurt yourself on Monday? lol.

Here are the pictures. leave comments!

whoa... time to update!

Sorry it's been so long! I have been terribly busy! Work takes up a lot of time, plus fitting school in which I should be doing right now.

I just got back from youth group and I must share something I never thought of before....
We were reading the book of Genesis and tonight we came to chapter 22 when Abraham is told to sacrifice Isaac by God. So Abraham and Isaac are walk up the mountain of Moirah Isaac is carrying the wood and asks Abraham his father "Where is the Lamb for the sacrifice?" Abraham tells Isaac "God will provide" (hopefully you know the rest of the story, God was testing Abraham so yeah...he really didn't have to kill his son because an Angel stopped him)
Okay I never realized this but Abraham said "God will provide" And he did! The lamb of God! God's son Jesus. And the cool part is, Jesus carried his own wood! The cross. And he carried it up the mountain of Golgotha which is in the same mountain range (Moriah) that Isaac carried his wood.
Cool huh? There is so much behind the stories in the bible, its really neat.

Anyway! Work is going okay, I didn't like it at first, I was really nervous and scared but every day gets a little easier. But being a cashier really isn't easy. *sigh* Its work....
Let's see, Saturday I'm going to Machebeuf's homecoming with Katieri (we are the dateless wonders) and staying the night. And Sunday I'm going to my aunt's for a girl's birthday party for my mom, my aunt Sue and myself (we share birthday parties even though Sue's and my birthday's are in December.) Oh! last week Mike Bell came over our house for dinner (he is the running back of the Denver Bronco's) He is a friend of ours (except I don't remember him, lol) So it was cool to meet him...
Yeah the Bronco's beat Baltimore Monday night 13 to 3...good game!

That's about it! School tomorrow, I need to get up a 7:30 and it's 10:00 pm so I better get some shut-eye, especially since I was up late last night with this stinking' cough I have.


PLEASE leave comments! Mauri, Tater is 9 months old :) In a teribble chewing stage...And Tater was his original name it kinda stuck...lol. ooh I owe you a letter.
Eliza, look forward to the letter ;) Thanks for the posts guys!

So much going on!!!



St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love; ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore and tell Him I will love Him each day more and more. Amen.










~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Well as you probably already know, I got a part-time job at Jo-Ann's fabric store! I'm very excited! It only takes me 5 minutes to walk there.
More news, We got a dog today! His name is Tater and his a Blue Heeler cattle dog mix. We like him a lot and he likes us a lot :) Here is a picture of him:


He loves it outdoors, and loves the yard. He is still a young puppy so we have some training to do....
And what else...oh! Today is Renee's 2nd Birthday! We had a birthday party for her last night. She got TONS of clothes and baby dolls...lol. She loves all her new stuff :) She is still getting use to the big doggy taking her place as the baby of the family :p J/K she's still our little spoiled princess and always will be!
I drew a picture of her for her birthday, I'm really proud of it, it's the first time I've actually drawn a face that looks like the person! lol. Here it is:


Well That's about it! I have to get up and start school tomorrow! I also have to go shopping for white polo shirts and Khaki pants, that's the dress code at Jo-Ann's :s
Leave comments! Thanks for reading!

Broncos win again!

Hi! Hope everyone is doing well!!!!
yeah! go Broncos, we won 17 to 7 against the New England.

I will not bore you with Bronco talk....because today was a busy exciting day. I stayed the night at Katieri's and we watched Spider-man and A Walk to Remember. Then when I was picked up we went to a shelter to look at dogs and we all fell in love with this Blue heeler mix and they let us take him on a walk and everything! so when we get back and asked to adopt him they had already had an application. So we didn't get our dog yet... :( We were bummed. So we'll just keep looking.
Oh! I have my 1st job interview tomorrow! yay! It's with Jo-Ann's fabric store. So wish me luck!

sleep deprived

ello,
This morning I woke up from a long night of twisting and turning because I was sooo hot and I can't sleep when it's hot out. I can for sure sleep when its cold out though! Its funny during the school year I could sleep allll day and during the summer I wake up at like 8am it's sad.
So anyway....I woke up and there were birds outside on our feeder everywhere! They are so funny! We fill our bird feeder every day...it's so funny. We usually only get sparrows and blackbirds. sometimes I see a black bird with yellow underneath.


Okay this is very random, but you know what I think? I think that Kiera Knighty and Audrey Hepburn are somehow related. I swear they look the same...it scary. who agrees?


Tuesday, August 29, 2006

summers' been fun!

Hello everyone!
Not to much going on. Chinonye and I had lots of fun :) We went to see that movie 'Invincible' it was sooo good! I loved it. It was a football movie about the Philly Eagles. I've always liked sport movies for some reason, especially football ones. I like Rudy the best. I want to see that basketball one 'Glory Road' my mom saw it and said it was good.
After the movie we went to Cosmic Bowling for 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. That was fun, lol. Before that I had never gone bowling before :s I loved it so I went again on Sunday with Kaitlin.
So that's about it! I start school soon. When my mom gets back from AZ, she and Nick are going to visit my grandma for a few days.
That's all for now!
~Kayla

Okay, I have the rest of my camp pics. They didn't turn out well so I just have two good ones,

and this one on the top is a Steubenville picture.

Kaitlin, me and Mia at Stuebenville of the Rockies. Yes we look terrible. It was the last day, we were tired and the sun was in our eyes!



Bethany and me aka "Zorro's" and Mary the dreadful girl who painted black unwashable MARKER! on our faces.





Okay, this is most of my team trying to make a bridge. yeah.
I'm in the middle on the bottom row.

HAPPY B-DAY ELIZA!!!


Today is Eliza's 16th B-day!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Love ya lots!!! ;)
Hi everyone,
sorry it's been awhile. I have been really busy with just trying to get things done. I'm the editor of our homeschool newsletter and I had to type up this huge directory and that's taken a lot of my time :s
Other then getting things done around the house, nothing else has happened. I'm going to Chinonye's house tomorrow to spend the night. And that's about it. I've also been lost in my Jane Austen books, lol. I admit. But reading is better then sitting on the computer right? lol.

I volunteered today...none of the dogs wanted to play. It was weird. Of course I only got to play with 4 dogs. They were all just the quiet type I guess.

okay. I'm going to bed now! I promise next time a longer post!

today is the feast of St. Pius X
St. Pius X, pray for us!

Hi!
How's everyone? I'm getting over my cold. Yesterday I went to my neighbors Tenneal's 6th birthday party, lol. It was at a place called "Pump it" It's basically a big inflatable kingdom of bounciness. hehe. I ate too much cake and ice cream :( blah...lol.
And we also had a friend from New York stay with us last night, her name is Libby and she was here at the Aspen Music school for the summer and needed a place to stay Sunday night. She is 16 and she was really nice, omg, she reminds me sooo much of my friend Kayleigh it's not even funny. I had actually never met her until yesterday. She plays the violin and omg she is sooo good. She also plays the cello. We rented Pride and Prejudice for her, that was my 3rd time seeing it but that's okay because I looove that movie!
So we just got back from dropping her off at the airport.

Everyone is gone! Friends left for college, all my little middle school buddies are off to high school, makes me sad...

Saturday, August 19, 2006

Hey everyone!
man...I have had a busy weekend! Damien and I went to our State shooting competition. We went Friday night and camped. It was all dirt and it rained allll night looooong....*sigh* You know what that means? Lots and Lots of mud. I was covered in mud. But I still shot. I don't know what I placed yet though, probably not very high.
I don't start school for a while but I fell like starting now. I know it sounds sad, but everyone has to admit they like to start school. Its funny how you can't wait for school to start and then you can't wait for it to end, lol. That's sad coming from a homeschooler. lol.
Anyway...I have to go take a shower now, lol, I'm still muddy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

Hey everyone!
Well mom turned 46 today. shh....don't tell. lol. I made brunch and we gave her our b-day gifts. I got her flavored coffee and some biscotti biscuits. My dad gave her a $25 gift card to Jo-Anne's, Nick and Damien gave her a candle that looks like a real apple, Mikey gave her scissors and scrap booking stickers and Tony and Carol gave her a really pretty outfit!
I wonder if my mom ever reads my blog...mom if your reading this post a comment, lol.
I think its pretty much Eliza, Mauri and Sarah that read my blog. Sometimes Emily and Jessica...any one else that I'm missing? If I am post a comment ;) hehe.

Anyone heard of the new movie 'Material girls' with Hilary and Haylie Duff? Its actually looks really good for a Hilary Duff movie, lol! I'd like to see it.

Well I g2g do the dishes, straiten my hair and get ready to go to Katieri's house to marrow, I'm spending the night. We were suppose to go to pirates cove water park but I guess it's going to be really rainy tomorrow so we may do something else. So better get goin'!

the usual....busy

today is the feast of St. Clare
St. Clare, pray for us!

Hello!
<--- isn't that a pretty picture! I love St. Clare!

Mauri, shooting is going good :) thanks, I've been keeping consistent high scores (around 230) The state shoot-off is coming up on the 19th! I'll let you know how that goes. Hey Mauri, I know you like to shoot, do you do any 4-h shooting sports?

Summer has been soooo busy! All of my retreats and camps are over but everything else, lol. I went shopping and out for lunch with Kaitlin and her mom, the dog shelter, and b-day shopping for my mom yesterday. Today we went to my grandma's but on the way we had to stop at the doctors so Damien could get his ingrown toe-nail fixed...anyone ever had an ingrown toenail? They look like they hurt...the doctor cut like half of his nail out, gross! And I think I'm actually NOT doing anything tomorrow :) Maybe I'll get a chance to read a full chapter of Pride and Prejudice, it's taking me so long to get through the first few chapters. It's a really good book so far though. I think Sunday I'm going over Katieri's and we're going to some water park in Littleton (Pirates Cove, never been there)
I babysat tonight while parents went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2, surprisingly my mom liked it, not sure about my dad. :)

Well that's all I have to say (like usual) don't be afraid to post a comment, lol!

my CD player broke :(

today is the feast of St. Cajetan
St. Cajetan, pray for us!

Hi everyone!
Not much going on today. I was in a terrible mood this morning because my CD player broke. I've never had great luck with CD players....my brother is going to try and fix it.
Saturday we went to my aunts house to help her out (she just had knee surgery) and then we went to my cousin's Niki's birthday party (I think she turned 6, lol) And Sunday was a busy day, we went to mass, then the Adams county fairgrounds to pick up our projects and look around at the other projects. Then after that we went to Holy Trinity's church festival. Our two priests were serving Mexican food and they called the restaurant 'Los Dos Padres' :) It was good food! My mom and I ate there and my brothers had boring hamburgers...But anyways I won a bottle of soda at the ring toss! lol. That was fun.

Today is Tony and Carol's 2nd wedding anniversary. I'm going to babysit Tina tonight so they can go do something together :)

That's about it! Here are some more camp pictures, click on them to make them bigger.
I still have to get my other ones developed.


I'm at the end in this one ^^^

I'm BACK!!!

Hi everyone!
I'm back :) I had a blast! I am VERY tired though... We did SO much.

First day was ice breaker stuff :)
second day we did sports and activities and "beauty day" we all got make-up and our hair done. third day we went on a 7 mile hike and carnival night.
fourth day we went paddle boating
fifth day we went on another hike (only 4 miles) that was cartoon night (I was roo from Winnie the pooh)
sixth day was horse back riding :) my favorite part and game night
seventh day! Awards and come home!

We did so much more! It was kind of hard being the oldest camper (I was older then all the counselors also, haha) there especially since all my friends from last year were all team leaders and bossed me around! But my room mate Bethany was 16 and we made friends with each other in an instant :) I loved her, she was so funny, we had so much fun together. Because we were the oldest we were put in charge of some things like planning the Counselor appreciation day and putting together adoration lists, and thank you cards, and much more! We got to dress up like Zorro! We painted black masks on our faces with BLACK MARKER! We scrubbed our faces for HOURS! but it was worth it, the girls loved it. We surprised everyone, the reason we dressed up like Zorro is because every night "Zorro" (one of the counselors) would collect the things laying around and if a camper wanted her stuff back she had to do something stupid. So Bethany and I dressed up like Zorro, stole stuff from the counselors rooms and made them do crazy stuff in front of everyone! lol, it was awesome.

Well I have to go start unpacking and stuff so I'll write more soon! Here are two pics from a disc I bought at camp, I haven't developed mine yet so I'll post those later! (Like the Zorro pics ^_^)

Going to camp!


today is the feast of St. Martha.
St. Martha, Pray for us!


Hi!
LOTS going on! I found out Thursday night that I was chosen to receive a full ($400) scholarship to go to camp! You might remember how sad and disappointed I was that I couldn't go this year (I have been going to this camp for 6 years) So I'm leaving today at 2pm. I had Friday and Saturday to get ready and tell everyone that I was leaving. I'll be gone for 7 days (until the 4th)
Boy will I miss Renee, I hope she doesn't think I left her for good, lol. (We're never apart)

I watched "Eight Below" last night, not the greatest sled-dog movie (I think "Iron Will" has to be the best) But it was enjoyable.

Eliza, Have you seen X-men 3 yet? You're letter is in the mail! ;) Sorry it's kinda boring, we talk on the computer too much.

Muari, lol, My youth group had to think about the stone table for a minute I was like "HELLO!"

Sarah, thanks for the post :) I will let you know how I do at state!

THANKS GUYS!

Much love,
Kayla

Going to state!

<----The classic crime, favorite band!
Hey guys!
Well my County shoot-off was Tuesday night. I placed 4th out of 6 so I didn't do to bad. I made the state team so I'm going to state, I highly doubt our team will make it to nationals, lol. Our highest score was 250, I shot a 224. The high overall score is 400, lol. State is Aug 19th and I think we're going to camp up there, it's in Rama, CO 30-40 minutes outside of Limon so it's a good 2 hour drive from here and we have to be there to sign-up at 7:00 am :s

Last night I went to youth group and Kevin our youth leader had us watch Narnia and we tried to find all the symbolism from the bible that we could, boy is there A LOT! Every single part of the movie had something! I noticed the stone table breaking in two just like the curtain breaking in two and Lucy and Susan were just like the woman who went to the tomb and when they saw Azlan was gone they said "They've taken him" Just like the woman at the tomb. That wasn't the only thing I noticed...I could go on. Another thing is how Edmund takes the Turkish delight just like Judas took the 30 pieces of silver.
I also watched X-men 2 last night, they're not the best movies, but I liked them so I can't wait to see the 3rd one.

Today I went to the dentist, no cavities! yay! And then I went to the shelter and played with the cutest Labrador :) And tonight, I'm watching Damien's soccer game, I enjoy watching him play.
SO....I'll be going now, g2g finish my shooting project!

Busy weekend!

Today is the feast of St. Sharbel Makhlouf
St. Sharbel Makhlouf, pray for us!

Hi! Whew! I've had a BUSY weekend! Steubenville of the Rockies was so much fun! I loved it. I went with Kaitlin and she loved it too. We stayed in a suite...he he, but we weren't allowed to turn the t.v. on...that's okay though we weren't in our hotels much anyway. But there were some 2,100 people at the retreat and the music and speakers were great, one I particularly liked was Molly Kelly, she is a chastity speaker, basically the funniest old lady (I'd say about 57-60 years old.) I have ever seen. And Sean Forrest! He was funny! He was our entertainment. I had the opportunity to go to Adoration and confession. In confession we were given bricks and we had to carry these bricks until our confession was done! And when we were done we put the bricks at the foot of a cross, I thought it was neat. We waited in line for about 40 minutes. There were about 1,200 confessions in two days! (There were about 30 maybe more priests) It was awesome. Then on Sunday my mom picked me up and we went to my grandparents 50th wedding celebration. That was pretty fun! My grandparents loved the memory album we made for them. The food was yummy :) We went to Senior Ric's (Mexican) So I have been busy and tired...every night we went to bed at the retreat at about 1 am and got up at 6 am! Terrible...our chaprone kept us up all night telling funny stories and making us laugh our heads off! She is one funny chick! But I am home now and it feels weird being home away from my friends and 2,100 other teens, loud music and everything else...lol

I bought a CD today called the Classic Crime and I got a free Underoath T-shirt! yay! lol.

Well that's all! Tomorrow is my shooting competition! Wish me luck! ~Kayla

Dyed it black! geez!


Hey Everyone! Thanks for all the posts ;) Eliza my darling, I will mail your letter out ASAP! lol. I promise. Sorry I am so slow. Well I'm finished with my essay class that I took over the summer. It went well, I'm waiting for my grade. I learned A LOT about essay writing! I'd show you guys my essay but I highly doubt you would want to sit and read it, so I will spare you you're time ;) Not much going on now, our VCR is broken so I can't watch any VHS for a while. Just DVDs, I had a Jane Austen movie to watch though :( It was Emma. all I've pretty much been doing is babysitting. I'm saving the money for Steubenville of the Rockies! Can't wait, I'll be leaving Friday afternoon. It ends Sunday afternoon but after that I am going strait to my grandparents 50th anniversary dinner. So that's about it. Here is a picture of my grandparents on their wedding, wasn't my grandma's dress BEAUTIFUL! I would so wear it if she still had it, she said she dyed it black!!! To use as a party dress! MAN!

10 months 10 days! yay!


Hey!
Sorry I haven't kept up. No one can really keep a blog up anyway...If I posted everyday you would get reeeaaaly bored! So anyways...What's happened? Well Slingblade a.k.a. Katieri came over the other day, spent the night and went to Water World with me the next day. My parish (Holy Trinity) went, it was for the alter servers. So Damien came along (he is an alter server) We had fun. But I hate it when you spend almost all day there and only go on 7 rides, it was really crowded. Of course we did spend a lot of time in the wave pool! I love the wave pool :)
And yesterday I went to see POTC 2 again with Kaitlin, then I babysat Tina last night, today we're going to a party/picnic thingy at a friends and then I'm going to babysit Angela.
So I've been keeping a little busy.
I'm suppose to be babysitting Renee now so I better go :) I'll write more later if I can! Okay!

10 months 16 days!


Hi!
Well I got the stomach flu :( I'm over it now, it was only the 24 hour flu. Everyone had it except my mom (Amazing huh?) It was terrible. I think I had it the worst. I threw up 7 times in about 3 hours. I hadn't been that sick in a really loooong time. The night I was sick I got about 2 hours of sleep. But I'm better, I went to Katieri's and spent the night. We went to see Pirates 2!!!! I LOVED it! It was SO funny and Johnny Depp did a really good job!!!I can't wait to see it again and I can't wait for the 3rd one. You have to wait for the 3rd one to see what happens next! :s 10 months 16 days. haha. Katieri and I have gone pirate crazy.

it's been raining here for since yesterday. I don't think we've ever gotten this much rain in July. I like it though, we reeeaaaly needed it.
I won't be going to the dew tour this year :( my brothers and I decided not to, we really need to save our money. We're going to Pirates on Friday though. I'm going to Water World with Katieri Wensday, I have a lot of babysitting jobs this weekend then the 21-23 I'll be at Steubenville of the Rockies. So I have a busy July ahead of me...

Hope Everyone is well!!!!

stomach flu

Happy 4th even though it is the 5th, lol. Ours was fun but we didn't get to see fireworks because it rained all day :( We were at my grandma's. It was disappointing, we usually go with all my aunts and uncle at the park near my grandmas but not this year...
And today everyone has the stomach flu and I think I'm getting it...And I really don't want to. I had plans this week. I am suppose to go see POTC 2 with Katieri. My mom thinks its the 24 hour flu because Renee got it yesterday and is fine today. So hopefully I'll get better tomorrow.

So that's all that's been going on really...I have really been playing the piano and passed the beginners book...lol. And now I think I better go...(throw up if you wanted to know)

Saturday, July 01, 2006


Well the boys got home today. They are all in bad moods and need to take a nap! geez! Mom and I had fun. We watched Pride and Prejudice, the newer one with Kiera Knightly and I LOVED it!!! It a must own movie. (for me at least) I'd like to see the older one too. We also watched Father of the Bride II which was hilarious! I love Franc in that movie aka Martin Short. This morning we went out to breakfast with my grandma at Village Inn. And that's about it, we enjoyed the peace and quiet mostly :) Nathan didn't go because he had to work so he was here.

I can't believe the 4th will be here before we know it :s I can't wait until July 21st, that's when I go to my Steubenville of the Rockies retreat with Kaitlin.

My grandma lent me a CD today called Celtic Women, its a group of 5 Irish woman. One of them plays the fiddle and one of them plays the harp. And they are vocalists and have the prettiest voices.

So now I have to go help with dinner!

Computer troubles...

Today is the feast of the Birth of John the Baptist
John the Baptist pray for us! And Happy Birthday!

Hey!
Wow...I have been so busy. I haven't been on in a while because our computer died and we had to get a new one. So I've been without a computer for a long time. So I have an excuse this time! :)
But we went to the weeding in Winter Park and that was a lot of fun. We went swimming at our hotel like 2 times a day. lol. My Grandma brought lots of candy for us...she is a cool grandma.
And it was nice to see all my great aunts and uncles from out of town.
We got a piano yesterday! It's pretty nice. We have to get it tuned and my dad will probably sand and re-stain the parts that need it.
I also got a parakeet! Her name is Cookie and she is really pretty! She is a very bright blue! She is still really scared of being in a new home (I got her from a friend) But I'm enjoying her and I love it when she sings.
I babysat all the kids tonight for my parents who's anniversary 26th is on the 28th of June.
Last night I went ice skating. So that's about it!
I'm really tired tonight so I want to try and write tomorrow and fill in the details about the trip and stuff! Till' later!

Today is the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua
St. Anthony, Pray for us!

Hey everyone!
Man have I been busy, like non-stop. I really haven't been on the computer since the last post. Oh Eliza, do you mean my posted pictures on my blog? I Google them....
Well, I had that teen track at my mom's conference. That was awesome. I met an Olympian skier Rebbecca Dussault, she spoke. I also won the St. Terese DVD and I book about dating :p
That was really fun. And after that I have just been busy with errands n' stuff. I am also doing an on-line essay class this summer and that has really taken up a lot of time. It's not easy, lol.
Last night I went to my mom's book club and we watched Prize Winner of Defience Ohio, really good book and movie!
Today we had this big airsoft fight with older kids for once, which wasn't all that much fun because someone had a C0-2 gun which reeeaaaly hurts :( ow...I still have welts. Shooting practice was after that so I've done alot of shooting today. And then Carol and I went out driving. I've gotten 4 hours so far. I'm not doing to bad on my driving...
*yawns* its getting late now. I'll try to post again. I'd like to post some info on Bl. Pier Giargo Frassati...he is so cool...I learned about him at the teen track. So I'll try to do that, we are leaving Friday for 3 days. We're going to Fraiser, CO for a wedding.
Okay! Until next time!

Pizza for dinner! :)


Hey everyone! sorry for taking so long. I haven't gotten a chance to get on the computer for a while. I had a lot of babysitting jobs in Thursday and Friday. And helping my mom get ready for a conference. She is helping with door prizes so I made a lot of signs this morning. She is at the conference all day today and I'm going to the teen track tomorrow. I also did my volunteering at the shelter on Thursday, same old routine, played with a bunch of dogs ;) I befriended a very melo shy dog that doesn't want to play and watches all the other dogs who act like they drink to much coffee. He's my favorite dog, a black Labrador, (he will play catch with me and lick my face...) Tonight I have to make dinner (pizza, lol) We were at Tony's not to long ago and we watched "hoodwinked" It was pretty funny, I liked it. So that's about it, just been really busy...I have to go make the pizza's now :s Thanks for the comments ;) ~Kayla

green fixes everything


Sunday is the feast of Pentecost
Come Holy Spirit!

New color, my favorite, green.
Hi everyone! I've been busy this weekend. Thursday I volunteered at the animal clinic, lol, there was a Hugh German Shepherd that REALLY wanted to play and he jumped on me (obviously not knowing he is really big) And scratched me arms up pretty bad. I started bleeding. And another (Very cute) dog was playing catch with me with a tennis ball and when he brought it back to me he accidentally bit me, and that hurt...So even when you're playing with nice dogs you can get hurt, lol. Also Damien had friends over for an air-soft fight for his birthday, I didn't play this time though because they were all little kids and that's no fun...
And Friday night Nick and I went to his Middle school youth group for Jello Olympics, lol. We had a Jello eating contest, a jello toss, a jello war and last but not least a jello slip and slide. I don't know how much jello there was but I know they spent $50 on boxes of jello. I don't think I'll ever eat orange jello again! :)
Tonight I am going to Lauren and Kaitlin's ballet dance. So I actually need to go get dressed, lol. I did a lot of weeding out in the garden today so I have been wearing sweats all day. Thanks for the comments guys ;)

Eliza,
don't forget to e-mail me ;) and yes we have too much in common, I love it!
Geez, I love you guys, you're so....dedicated, lol. Thanks for all your wonderful comments ;)

My Memorial day was fun, really busy, we went to my aunts first, my aunts and uncle are planning my Grandma and Grandpa's 50th anniversary. Yeah their 50th is on I think July 24th. That will be a fun celebration, we all love my grandparents so much, they do a lot for everyone.
And then we went to my grandparents for a BBQ. Too much FOOD!
As far as vacations and retreats this summer, all we're doing is going up to Winter Park, CO for my mom's cousin's wedding. And after we come home we're getting a dog!!!!!! I can not wait!
And Steubenville is July 21-23.

When I was at my grandma's today I was watching the first X-men (I've never seen them) I didn't get to finish it so I am going to get it asap, it was awesome (from what I watched) I mean all the mutant people are just so cool! lol.
Okay, I think I'll go make use of my time and practice the recorder. (that's what I'm learning to read music, it's working pretty good so far!)

Happy Memorial Day!

Hey!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I am, yesterday I had to go buy new clothes because I stained all my other clothes with chocolate syrup...
And my mom and I went to a coffee shop to go over my high school transcript for 9th and 10th grade. I really need to work myself for 11th grade because I need to get more credits.
I think I know what I want to do in college, lol (maybe) I think I will look into zoology! I don't think it will ever happen but how I would love to work with Gorillas like Jane Goodall.

I hope everyone has a great Memorial day! I am going to my grandma's (the usual) Damien will be 10 on the 30th so we are celebrating my cousin Tommy's 10th birthday (the 25th, Damien and Tommy are 5 days apart) and his birthday that day.
So now I think I'll try to start on the curtains for my room :s
