MN Trip #1

On March 1st, 2017, we (my family still living at home and I) left for MN to go to my brother’s wedding. The youngest of all my brothers has finally gotten married! Well I’ll start with day one of this trip.

Scenic view from the plane. (Yes, we took a plane this time. 😉 )

Our plane was supposed to arrive in Minneapolis at 2:00 P.M., but it arrived at 1:30 P.M. instead, so we went to go see Gabriel (the one that is getting married) at his work. Then we went to go see Priscilla at her work (she works at Dunn Brothers in a hospital) and she made Mom a coffee and Bethany and I a Frappe (I think that is how you spell it, but what ever the case, it is a coffee smoothie basically, with whipped cream on top. It is EXTREMELY AMAZINGLY GOOD! Thanks Priscilla!) Then we went to see Hannah at her house and ate dinner with her! I guess that’s all I’ll do today, but be sure that more will come!

Little Women Tea

Since before Christmas 2015 we (my friend Charlotte, Charlotte’s mom, my mom and me) have been working on a Civil War dress and were planning to have a Little Women Christmas Tea  (we had been reading Little Women together and thought that it would be fun if we made a dress for that time period.) Well, we finally finished the dress right before Christmas 2016 instead of 2015. Anyways, we finally did have our tea so here are a few pictures of our tea.

SNOW!!!

In the Piedmont part of NC we are experiencing snow. Since we live in NC, it is pretty rare to get snow but we get once or twice or even thrice a year. The first day of the snow, (Saturday) was not as good of sledding on our dirt road:

but the second day, (Sunday) was really good!

See how shiny the road is? That is ice.

But today! oh my! I just flew threw the air like never before! You see, on Friday night we got a sheet of sleet and then snow. Then on Saturday night it got down to the single digit numbers so our packed down snow from our sledding tracks became ice! Then today the ice was even more slick. It was super fun to sled on.

Here are some pictures:

This is Bethany sledding on her feet. It was pretty fun doing that as you will see in a video later.
