We are going to Egypt this coming month, so you could win an Egypt kit! A book mark and two pieces of Egyptian stationary.
An American Girl magazine! We have been receiving AG's magazine for almost two years, and we are leaving end of August for Egypt, so I've decided to change the address and the last magazine to the winner of this prize! You might actually get two magazines, it depends on if the September magazine comes before August 28

Also, most of you who've done a Blog Party before know that for one week the person who's hosting the party gives you chances to earn more entries, like if you post five pictures on your blog you get one extra entry, but since we're moving to Egypt August 28, I don't really have a 'free' week before we move. Like this Monday some friends are coming over to spend the day and on Thursday we're going to our Grandparent's for the weekend. Some days I might skip, I'll still do six days but it'll be next week. So you might have more time to enter, but to be safe you might want to enter the same day I give you the chance. I just want to make sure this is clear so if you don't understand just comment!


1. You must live in the USA, sorry to some bloggers!

2. Have fun!

More pictures for a photography contest

Saratess is hosting a photography contest, so here are my entries. We got all the pictures off the other computer, thankfully, except all my good photography pictures! )-; They are all deleted now so oh well. I'll take more, I guess.
Here are some that I hadn't moved into my 'photography' file, so they weren't deleted. 
My entries:

That's all! None of them are edited, just so you know.
Your sister in Christ,

More Pictures, and more, and more

Here are more. I'm not really putting these on here for you all to have to look at and comment on, but we're giving this computer away so I have to store the pictures somewhere 'safe'. :-D
Enjoy them thought. 
Samuel jumping across the creek. Isn't this a cool picture? Spring 2010
 This was the same day we did that photo shoot, and this is our driveway. Summer 2010
 I got a bit tired of the photo shoot after a while...my brothers thought it so funny to expect me to smile, then this face just came out. Summer 2010
 Smile! Summer 2010
 Anna with the giveaway purse she won.
 Me on the computer. Fall 2009
 The whole family! Spring 2010
 Summer 2009

That's all! I'll be posting about my blog party soon, it's going to be really different because we're REALLY busy with moving to Egypt next month!
Love in Jesus,

More Pictures

Here are the rest:
 Petra looking at the waterfall.
 Me at the Creation Museum with Petra in the background.
 Sorry this one is red, but I liked it.
 I liked how you can see the blood on this one, you couldn't regularly.
 Petra wasn't so sure about this guy:
 Anna and I did a 'photo shoot' a couple months ago. Summer 2010
 This is the one on my header. :-)
 Should I use this one for the header instead?
 The path leading to our house, through the grass. 

More pics coming later!


We're giving this computer away to the Marcums, one of my best friend's family, actually the whole family is best friends with them all. :-D So it's our 'Best Friend Family'. We'll be sad to leave them when we go to Egypt.

Anyways, I have to get all the pictures off this computer so here they are:
All the kids in the leaves, Sep 2009
Our tree - house!
A dead fish we found. :-D
Petra's fourth birthday, isn't she cute?
 Now we're putting ketchup on the dead fish an eating it with forks. 
Petra again, I made it look like it was panted with this thing on our computer.
The pond, Spring 2010. Isn't it nice?
The hill to Mr. Hodge's house. Spring 2010
Max's wood pile, Spring 2010

I really like these wax figures, these are Noah's sons wives.
The internet keeps crashing because of this big post with pictures, so I'll have another post coming right after this.
In Jesus,
