Staying Comfy: October

I dress up and go "visiting" every Halloween, but I don't go everywhere like from door-to-door. I go to the houses of people I know, such as my great aunt's house. I go to the rest home, and I get to see sweet little old women.

When I think of fall, I think of punkin' pie and leaf piles all over the place.
My aunt has a really big yard, and a bunch of trees because she lives in the country, so the kind of leaf piles I jump into there are HUGE.

I love October. My little puppy Cookie gets cold if she's outside too long. She'll just shiver really hard, sometimes.

Stay warm with sweaters, pants, jackets, long socks, boots and mittens, y'all hear?

Animal Crossing City Folk: How to Make Money FAST

OK, so you need money on Animal Crossing City Folk. You might need some time to do all of this. (After you do it, you'll be RICH)

1. Sell seashells. It's not exactly the fastest way to make money, but every little bit helps.

2. Pick fruit. This is slow, but steady. You should probably plant about three pears out of 30 to make some new trees every time you get them, so you'll have more when they grow. (Don't forget to water the sprouts!)

3. Make hybrids. So you probably have about two or three of the same flowers in your town, right? So we pick all of the flowers, find an empty area, and plant them so that they may be two in a row diagonally, vertically or horizontally. Water those every day for about 3 days to a week and you should see another flower produced by them. Don't have two opposite flowers together such as pansies and tulips, and don't run when you come to the place where they are.

4. Shake trees. Have your net handy in case of bees. If you get stung, don't use medicine or anything, until you have been stung by every bee you'll be stung by while you shake all of the trees. Then, put on your Mii mask so that animals won't freak out when they see you.

5. Check the recycling bin and lost and found for items. Sell them all to Nook, if you don't want to keep some.

6. Check the sea for seashells again.

7. Talk to animals and do them favors. Sell the items that don't match your house theme.

8. Dig up gyroids, items and fossils. Give the fossils to Blathers, and if you already have them in your museum, take them back and sell them. Put the gyroids in your house and sell the items. If you don't like the gyroids that you keep, save them until a display period comes on at the auction house, or a flea market, then sell them.

9. Check your mail for letters with presents. Sell any presents you don't want.

10. Dig a hole behind you every time you do it, and hit every rock in town, and when money starts coming out of one, hit it until it's run out.

11. Fish or catch bugs and sell them.

12. Watch the sky carefully for balloons. Shoot them down with your slingshot and sell anything you don't want.

13. Put your money in the bank and save your game. On the starting spot where Rover is, put "Other Things" and change the time to 8-28-2010 at 11:00 P.M. Get your net ready and catch the beetles. WARNING: There will be scorpions and tarantulas. Try to catch them, but if you can't, that's fine. They sell at Nooks for about 8,000 Bells, but you might have to wait. Store all of the bugs you catch in your house, until your pockets and house are full of bugs. Then, save, change the time to the real one, and sell most of your bugs. If you save one of the bigger bugs, you could set it to the bug-off and win the trophy. (ANOTHER WARNING: You might have bed head and/or lose your tan if you had one.) MAJOR MONEY.

TA DA! You're RICH! Thanks for reading.

We Went To a Cherokee National Holiday Powwow!

I got to go to a Cherokee Powwow. It was awesome. There were girl dancers with bells on their dresses, and they had the most beautiful colors. They also had ruffles on them. I can tell now, why they call it Powwow. It makes you want to yell "WOW!".
The men had robes with feathers. AND LOTS OF THEM. The drums were toe-tapping. There were some toddlers behind us where we sat, and they were just dancing to it. I don't blame them. It was just where you could hardly keep from dancing. I got a bow and arrow, and my Dad got a "Native Pride" shirt from a stall there. It was just beautiful. They competed when they danced, and the junior girls tied twice for first place! I wish they would've danced more. I loved going there.

The Legend of Zelda A Link to The Past: Mountain Tower

Check list for defeating Moldorm:
Bombs, fairies in bottles.
How to get bottles: You can buy one from the merchant in Kakariko village, and in the Dark World, after you are in the water is if heading toward the fifth palace, transport to the light world in the triangle. (you must have flippers) Then, talk to the man lying on the ground. He will give you another bottle.
How to get flippers: Lift the rock blocking the way to a new path at the potion shop, in the light world. Go to the very top of the map as you can get, (have 500 rupees ready) and you will come to a secret place. Go around in the lighter water until you find the last of it. Then, you can buy the flippers.

When you get to the boss, before you go into the square where he is, throw some bombs at his tail. If they hit him, they'll lower his health making it easier to kill him. Once you go into the ring, avoid his head and the edges. You can relax because you have fairies. Keep your sword charged, and when you are close enough, hit his tail. After about four times he will die, and you will get your last pendant.

Fireworks Time!

It's almost the fourth of July! I can't wait! The fireworks always mesmerize me. They're so beautiful. We always go to the football stadium. I'm so excited! I'm going to wear a shirt with a flag on it, and so is my brother, my Mother, and Father. I love fireworks. Last year, my aunt had bought some hand fireworks to light after we got back from the football stadium. She also bought us some fireworks that shoot up in the air. One of them, barely missed my head! We had set it on top of a small hill, and had it laying vertically. I backed up a bit, to see it go the opposite way, and it shot out the wrong end and was about an inch away from my head!

I have been having trouble with a game, and I found some cheat sites. Click HERE to get cheats for Harvest Moon Magical Melody for Gamecube.

Thank you all very much for reading this.

My family and I watch the fire works every year at the football stadium here. I enjoy them. I hope we can film them this year. Sometimes my aunt buys fireworks you can do at home. We use them all up almost every year. I can REALLY tell it's summer when I see fireworks.
I LOVE swimming in summer. It's not EVER too hot to swim. I have been practicing swimming like a mermaid. We like to watch movies, with popcorn and blankets on Friday, too.
Thanks to all of you for reading! Hope you enjoyed reading this!

Silver Dollar City Trip

I went to Silver Dollar City for spring break and got a bunch of taffy, two hats (one with cheetah spots and one that is purple with zebra stripes in the middle) blueberry jam, and ponchos. I loved the dippin' dots... (I only got vanilla) We went to see Lincoln Brewster. He was terrific, but he could only sing three songs because it started raining, but I think that the rain made it better! WE all rode on the Silver Dollar City Steam Train. They kept on saying funny things and told us to shake a fist at some hill-billy looking people we saw. We also played at Geyser Gulch too. It was SO high up! We went to the wilderness church, and everything was made out of logs! Even the benches and the pulpit! My Dad and I did a rope thing where you pull yourself up and you come down by yourself. We have season tickets, and we are definitely going back to go on the rest of the rides and stuff. It was A.W.E.S.O.M.E! *heart* You guys! Thanks for reading!

Staying Comfy: March

I stay comfy on Saint Patrick's Day by having blueberry tea, hopefully not wearing green, LOL. And maybe picking some shamrocks for a bouquet if we have any. Sometimes we make green paper shamrocks. (But we don't pinch them.)


I stay comfy at Easter by coloring eggs with egg-coloring kits, I get a new Easter dress, and we all have 'snuggle time'. We think it's so fascinating that Jesus rose on the third day, and that we have Easter to celebrate it.

My review of The Diary Of A Killer Cat

Amy has started a monthly book club for kids, and this month's book is The Diary Of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine.

When a cat kills a bird, his world turns upside down. He is blamed for killing a rabbit in the next-door's yard, his cat-door is nailed so he can't get in if he goes out, and he has to go to the vet to get his shot for rabies!
Mixed with a funny twist, I would recommend this book for anyone who needs a laugh. I enjoyed reading this book.

P.S. I didn't know that cats could talk. Just kidding!

Staying Comfy: February



This is my mother's meme. If you would like to see more staying comfy posts, click HERE

When there's snow, like now, I like to have a snowball fight, then come inside to drink hot chocolate or hot tea by the fire. Afterward, I play with my poodle Cookie.
Then I make little Valentines for my mother, father, and brother. Besides Christmas, Valentines day is my favorite holiday.
We make a little mail box every year, and we mail our Valentines the night before and we read them together on Valentines Day.
I love all of the colors in Valentines Day. I also like to make heart-felt poems and notes for my family.

I hope all a' you have a Happy Valentines Day, and I hope you get a lot of Valentines!



P.S. I made the picture on the bottom.

My 30th Post!

For my official 30th post, I'll list some of my favorite sites!
I shop at these places Walmart Ebay
I play these games Holly Hobbie Hello Kitty's Play Room American Girl

I have heard about Wii Fit Plus, and I want it, but I'll have to spend most of my money to get it. SO I'm seeing if I still want it after a week, and after that, I'll read reviews about it. I am just making sure I ABSOLUTELY want it as bad as I think.
Here's where you can shop for this. CLICK HERE

My puppy Cookie's doing fine. I think that she's sweet, because when I lay down in the floor, she climbs up on my tummy and tries to lick my cheek. She has been really energetic lately. I wish I had that much energy...

Thank you for your time!

February Business



Can all of you believe it's already February? I hardly can. I have been thinking about writing heart-felt notes in my Valentines, too. I think people will like that as well as the Valentine.

Today in homeschool, I studied about the February 2010 Winter Olympics. It's quite interesting. It's amazing how many people go to the Olympics every four years.
There is also another kind of Olympics for people with physical disabilities.
It's called Paralympics.

The Olympics will be held this time in Canada for the third time.

My puppy is running around and playing right now. She's been so energetic this week, and we named her Cookie! Is that not a cute name? She always dashes around a lot in the living room before she plays tug-of-war, or fetch.

I hope all of y'all enjoy Valentines Day!

Staying Comfy: January

My Mother has a blog called 1Homeschool, and she made this meme. If you'd like to post something on her meme, click HERE

I like to stay comfy by snuggling with the family pet or stuffed animal. I enjoy drinking hot chocolate by the fire, too. I really feel relaxed when I snuggle up with my Mom under a fuzzy blanket, with a good fire going, and a good book. I love the taste of hot chocolate. Oh, here's an idea.
Instead of marshmallows, try whipped cream and cinnamon on top of that! It's delicious.
Dont' forget to keep your feet warm, too! Fuzzy slippers will keep those toes cozy.

Winter Ice Skating and Cute Fingernail Story


glitter-graphics.com
Winter is my least favorite season, because I can't swim in our pool, or take our new addition to the park for the first time. I would handle the winter better if I knew how to ice skate, but I'll probably never learn, because there isn't a ice skating rink around here. My Dad knows... I mean KNEW (he is probably is out of practice) how to ice skate when he was a little boy. I wish I could have been there, then I would know how to skate, and I would know where to go to ice skate more. Sorry, I was kind of in "dream land" for a second...
The funniest thing happened yesterday, I put on fake french manicure fingernails, and I showed my mom. When she turned around to look at them, she said: "OOoohh, paint mine!" My Dad knew I had just glued on those fake fingernails, and he busted out laughing. I started giggling, but my Dad laughed about three times louder than me. Then, my Mom asked me, "What are you laughing about? How did you do that?" After I finished catching my breath, I replied, "fake fingernails." My Mom had a twenty-second silence to herself.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about my future comments on your blogs. I'll add funny endings too, after maybe a few sweet words, or a little cute poem. Thanks for reading this post!
