My Dog Thinks She is Batman.

I was looking through these pictures that my mom had on her computer and came across this one and it made me laugh. Especially bcuz i am the one that put that cape on her:) My mom took this picture and i just now saw it but i remember her running around our neighborhood with it on. I won that cape at six flags but i think i would rather give it to angel cuz she looks so much better in it:)

Christmas night my mom told us....

So we have this tradition where my family opens our presents for christmas on christmas eve. We opened all our presents and then my dad told us we had one more present to open tomorrow. We all sat there and tried to guess what it was. I thought it was a puppy. Rachel and Amanda thought it was an xbox game and i dont know what josiah thought it was. But we all got really excited to find out what it was. My dad told me about a month ago that i was gonna be really suprised about one of my presents which only made me more curious. That day we went to my grandmas, ate dinner and opened presents and did some other stuff and then we came home. We were all so excited until my mom gave us all 1 envelope. For a second i thought it was money... so i was just thinking why did this have to wait? We opened it one by one... Rachel-"Mom"... Josiah-"is"... Amanda-"Baby" and then what put it all together is mine it said "having." Rachel jumped up really fast and yelled "Moms having a baby?!... Moms having a baby! Amanda's responce was like "really?... thats awesome this is my favorite christmas present. Josiahs responce..."awesome less money i have to pay for college"... my responce was thinking my moms crazy. "I can't believe shes having another baby?... this is her 6th kid... does she know that?... is this real life?"... Rachel was hoping to god it was gonna be a girl but it turns out its gonna be a boy. By the end of the night i sat there and thought about having another sibling and it seems really weird but actually i am really happy that i will have another sibling.
Names- We've thought about names for a while now and it seems like my mom and dad have had too many kids they can't even think of a 6th one they both agree on. But, my mom likes the name Jonah and i think she should stick with that one. But my dad doesn't really like it that much. So we haven't really had a final decision on that one. My dad thinks we should name his Derek so his name will be derek rose after a basketball player hahaa:) But now i can't wait until my mom has the baby because i know we will all love him very much.

Christmas Time!:)

Today we put our christmas stuff up and went and bought our christmas tree. Despite the cold weather, Christmas time if my favorite:) I love everything about it.... the lights, the trees, the snow, sledding:).... and the smell of christmas trees. I found myself today still telling my mom what i want for christmas. Then i came back to what i was thinking about and thought i am missing the whole point of christmas. I was only thinking about what i wanted for presents and money and stuff. But this is about the birth of christ and being with your family. When you miss that, christmas is just not even the same. My grandma puts up happy birthday signs all over her house for christmas because she is really celebrating Jesus's birthday:) haha. And i've thought about it and its okay to think about presents for christmas as long as you remember what christmas is really about.
There was this little boy named Dax who was diagnost with leucemia cancer last year around christmas time and it got the whole town putting up lights for him.... they thought he wouldn't make it to see christmas so they celebrated it early. It turned out he did get to see one last christmas. There is this video on youtube that is a song about him and it is so sweet but its really sad.
This song makes me cry....

This is the christmas tree we bought:).... I hung the star:)

Behind the Scenes?

I thought some people might be wondering why I picked "behind the scenes" as the title for my blog. It's not really just random, there is something behind it. I've thought about judgement lately. I watched this movie called "To Save A Life" and i reccomend it big time because it was amazing. It showed me something about people that you see everyday in everyone even in yourself. When you see or hear someone you don't know, you automatically judge them in a way that could be good or bad. Most of the time you look at what there wearing or what they are doing or even the words that they say. It's almost impossible not to look at someone and make a judgement even on people you love. You could look at your best friend and think "her hair looks really pretty today" or you could look at them and think her "she needs to do her hair better." Both of them are judgements. Sometimes you can misjudge someone, but once you get to know them usually you think something totally different than what you judged them for. For example, There was this girl in math class that I sat by at the beginning of the year. I thought she was totally crazy and weird.... but I thought it was kind of annoying. I actually started talking to her and then I started texting her and then we started to hang out. Now this girl named Emily is my best friend and he hang out like everyday. So i thought what this had to do with "Behind the Scenes" is that once you know someone you think totally different of them..... When you read this blog you know me one step better than you did before. So, its kind of like my behind the scenes. Behind the Scenes is actually a song. I didn't make up the title by myself i got it from a song by Francesca Battestilli. The chorus of this song goes.....

Things aren’t always what they seem
You’re only seeing part of me
There’s more than you could ever know
Behind the scenes
I’m incomplete and I’m undone
But I suppose like everyone
There’s so much more that’s going on
Behind the scenes.....

It is a good song and you should listen to it. But i thought it was a good one to use just thinking that you will get to see a part of me that you may not have known.

1 year = November 18th

Exactly One year ago from today we burried my dog dodger in our back yard. I came home from school and I didn't even get to say goodbye. But, if i could do that whole day over again I would in a second. I woud have at least been able to tell him goodbye before i left for school that morning and I would have known what was coming rather than coming home to the worst suprise you could ever imagine. I was at my friends house today who also has a Golden Retriever named Otter.... I just looked at him today and all i could see was dodger. Emily looked at me and knew i was sad but i kept trying to laugh so i would not. But then she came over and gave me a hug and tears rolled down my cheek. It is harder than you may think to lose a dog especially since they don't do anything wrong and all you do is love them. It was really hard at first and sometimes I still think he should be laying around somewhere on the floor like he always was, but he is not anymore. R.I.P. Dodger. November 1, 1996- November 18, 2009.

The Love of a brother and his Sister

During camp in 2010 it was during Worship, Me My Cousin Kristen and Rachel and some others were down in front worshiping. I looked back and I saw Josiah back there with his hands raised to God. As soon as I saw that i just felt an amazing love for my brother. I wanted to just go tell him how much I loved him and give him a hug. I was a little bit hesitant and i didn't know why. But these lyrics came on that said something like "You'll never have another chance like this" and i knew i wanted to do it. So i walked up to him and tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around and gave me a big hug and leaned down and said he loved me and tears started coming down my face as i said i love you too josiah. I had never felt so close with josiah but i know that it made me feel like i had the best big brother in the whole wide world. I think sometimes a big brother is very important to a girl because they make them feel like they always have your back. Now josiah doen't like to show that as much but i still know that josiah would do anything for me and i would do anything for him. At momentum this year the same thing happened. Me and josiah were right next to each other and we were just worshiping and i wanted to give him a hug again but i was waiting for the right time. When worship was over i thought it was too late and i was just standing there but like 2 seconds later he came to me and gave me a hug and i told him that i loved him again. The love 2 siblings could have for each other is truely amazing.
