At Daniel's and Kristin's - Day 2

Today was a day of running around. We went to the Post office (ok), next to the Library, then to Hancocks. After Hancocks we returned to the apartment for lunch and naps for two little ones. After naps (which were too short) we went to Hobby Lobby and Publics. We ended the day with one of Kristin's AMAZING dinners! And, to finish off the day, we put the kids to bed and watched a girl movie! All in all, a fun day!

And now, pictures and videos!

Am I weird?

Is it weird for someone to invent their own word? Because I have!

Several years ago (I'm not sure exactly how long) this word popped out in my vocabulary and just seemed to stick! I'm not the only one who uses it either. Most of my family have also taken to using it! Though, obviously, I was the first!

So, you may be wondering... what is this strange word which I have invented? Well, here it is..... (lol... I spent about 5 min. trying to decide how to spell it!)

Schnikezoids! or Schnikes! for short.

definition... used in times of amazement, excitement and astonishment. Similar to WOW!, Man! and.... well, I think you get the picture! :)

So.... now that I have told you one of my deepest, darkest secrets.... :)
Have you or anyone you know (besides me) ever invented a word that stuck? If so, what was it? And, honestly, am I weird, strange, crazy and, well, 'unique' for coming up with my own word?

And, as I say to my siblings when they use my word around me...... It's My Word!!! :)

My Favorite Sea Creatures!

So.... someone mentioned the Monterey Bay Aquarium the other day and it made me remember our families trip there. And, after thinking about it for a while, I decided to do a short post about two of my favorite sea creatures.

As most of you know... I love horses! So, it shouldn't surprise you when I say that my #1 favorite sea animal is the Sea Horse!

The rolls of these little creatures are very interesting! It's fun to watch as they twirl their tails around seaweed or some other stationary object. The courtship process is also very intriguing! It is very similar to our "courtship" in that they swim side by side, hold "hands" (tails actually) and even dance together!

My #2 favorite is a cousin to the first. This would be the Sea Dragon.

Aside from being a cousin to the sea horse.... I love this little creature for its looks... which may sound strange. :) God has given this little animal an amazing camouflage! It looks just like a piece of seaweed floating in the water! When I saw the plaque for this little guy I was expecting this big, ugly, mean looking creature! At first I couldn't even see the real sea dragon even though it was right in front of me!

Both of these sea animals are proof that God is amazing!!!

The Eye of an Artist

Yes, I know I was suppose to do this earlier this week! But better late then never, right?

If you look closely the rocks look like a man sleeping on the ground (at least, to me). It has always made me think of the story about Jacob. The one were he sleeps on the ground with a rock for a pillow.

When we moved here, I noticed this pile of rocks... and from the first it reminded me of a certain Bible story. Can anyone (besides mom and Micah) guess which story? I'll post the answer in one week.
