Still here...but in a different location.

Yup. So confusing but that is really the case. Felisha and I are going to camp for the summer but we will try to keep the blog updated...if we are permitted by the director.=) We will be working in the kitchen together at EWYR. I am hoping that Lisha will do most of the cooking(since that is what she enjoys doing most and I, the cleanup work(I would much rather do cleanup than cook)...we will see how that goes.  All our packing is done but I just keep checking my list, twice, three times. I think we have everything. Oh well we are only 45min. from home I can always come back and get what we need. I will work on my Graphic Design studies and Lisha will is going to finish up highschool on our free time(I sure hope we get that there=)JK. Please pray that staff training next week goes well.

~Love, VanessaX.

Land of TN!!!!

We actually made it into the airplane and flew!JK Felisha and I had to have a pat down in the ABQ airport. The officer woman said that we had to have the pat down done because we were wearing "scarfs".  I just followed directions obediently but in my mind I was saying "Um excuse me mam but this here is a skirt. I know women in the U.S don't wear these anymore but this is a skirt." I decided not to say anything to her...hmmm. When she asked me to step forward and tell my age I paused for a moment and then said "oh! I am 20." I just had to stop and think how old I was. I forget that often. So anyway then she had to ask me if I was really 20. "Yes, I really am 20". She just put on her gloves for the pat down procedure and said "hum."  For some reason I thought that they had to give you a choice whether you preferred a pat down or a scan down...apparently not. =( Thankfully that was the only pat down we had to have on the whole trip.


Jus' a little traffic...sort of like Claunch. We were kind of used to it.=)Ha!


Ashley made us a cute little sign so that we would be sure to find her!=)


Pretty Water!!!!

This is awesomely beautiful! I love the pretty little rock island. I do not know how to swim and we did not have a little boat handy so we could not go over. God is so creative!

~Me and my best friend Ashley~

More water! This time it was a waterfall that we could stand in it if we wanted. I did not cause I don't know how to swim. hummmmm...


Ashley. Me. Felisha. Traveling about in the rain!=) I think it rained 3 days in the week we were in TN. It was so pretty but we could not take any senior photos during that time. Never seen so much pouring rain in all my life. I wish I could have packed my bag with some and watered our grass. Ha! it would not have been enough and I don't think I could sneak it in the plane without my bag dripping. Oh well.



An "ok" girl group picture. 

Nice sunning rock.


Our lovely photographer...Mrs. Uribe. (Ashley's mom=)

Obviously....pic. on bridge..very shaky bridge=/

I will take a small break and share more of TN with you all sometime soon!!!!

Photo shoot in the BIG city!=)

Felisha and I packed up my backpack and took the notion to journey as far as the actually, very small, aesthetic town of Claunch!=) We had such a wonderful time together...Lisha posing and I bossing...(very unusual) JK. I took these pictures at the old school, library and grocery in downtown Claunch. I really liked the setting because of all the color blends in the walls and old chalkboards. It was amazing fun...I am so thankful that my dear little sister let me practice my photography on her. HaHa! Love her♥

                                                               "this my cute little sister"




...bad glare on the glasses=(...



(Can't decide if I like the colored or the sepia better....)












So much fun! 

Saturday, 12 March 2011






                    Mollie and Felisha. They got to do the fun work. Ha Ha! They were both being
                    very stubborn and would not let us have a turn. It really is kind of a fun job. Makes your arms really sore esp. if you do nothing but hold a pencil all day, most days.=)



Some of the corn kinda scattered around the bucket so it had to be swept up, taken out 
into the wind(to let the chaff blow away), and then poured into a basket. Later the corn is
put into bags to be sold.
                                     
Finally got a pic. of the girls smiling...with corn cobs. =) I put it in sepia 'cause the 
photo pixelated horribly.

Sweet little children...Fun little wagon times. I remember playing in our
little wagon when I was little. We would take turn pushing each other around
and letting the others ride in the wagon and steer. That was when we were little and cute=)

I was told if I wanted to post pics. of the other girls that I had to post a pic.
of myself. So here it is. I always have my face in cup.=)


She didn't exactly smile for the photo...but I thought it was still cute!

Yummy Bubblegum!=)



Cute. (You can kind of tell that we have no little children in our 
house. I really enjoy seeing these cute little faces=)



Baby Pope and big sister.....


I wanted to practice my photography...so some sweet friends
let me give it a try. I had so much fun. Thank you Popes!!!
Love you....had a great time with you all.=)


By the end of the day this is what I wanted to do...We stayed up 'til
3:00am. Whew! I really did sleep well the next night. Anyway this is a very
lovely baby. She is always smiling and laughing....that's the kind of babies I like.
Ha Ha! I know....all babies have there grumpy times but some babies are just naturally happy.=)

Felisha and I enjoyed our time bunches. We are so thankful for such wonderful friends!!
Love Ya'll!

Not a candle...a lighter!=)



 Happy Birthday Mom!!! We love you! So, instead of trying to find a hundred candles
Dad decided to use a lighter that could never burn out=+)JK Love you Mom♡ Becca
is in the background holding Mom's chocolate blackberry cheesecake...yummy! We
had homemade pizza too. It was great. Joe and Becca were able to come home and help
celebrate Mom's birthday, so that was really special.


...up close shot of Mumzie blowing out her birthday lighter!=)
She actually got the flame out on the first blow!!!yeah!
(Oh ya, by the way none of us smoke.lol)



I am sure you all looked at this and said"what is she 
doing?" Well, I can explain that with a short story=) So, I 
got an email from Becca asking me if I knew of anything that
Mom needed or wanted. I told her maybe a mouse pad and 
some "eating"size spoons. Joe went to her house and they both
went shopping for Mom's gifts. Becca picked out the normal 
size spoon and said that they were "eating" size spoons. Joe argued
and said "no, I really think this is the right size". He picked out 
a set of huge soup spoons. Joe insisted that the spoons he found 
were the perfect size for eating. We all had a good laugh at him 
'cause he shovels his food in, so those big spoons were "just the right size."
In this pic. Mom is posing with her spoons...with her mouth wide open.=)
Haha!!!!Love it....

Grandpa's B-day party!=)


We had a surprise Birthday party for Grandpa Wells!
Mrs. Margie did a great job on his cake=)


I think he was kinda proud of it...


Some of the Wells family=)



Dad and Colby have a nice conversation. (oops
did not mean to get the lady in between them=(

Ryan(Colby's youngest boy) was so excited to help Grandpa
open his gifts....even if he did not get anything. Haha! So cute!




~Allison and Ryan~

Felisha and Logan





Logan is really telling Joe something!

I had a lot more pictures of the party but the lighting
was so bad  I couldn't even fix them with image editing=(
So that is what I have for now...

Blizzards and Snow Drifts!

                                          Dad and Banjo playing in the snow=) There are no
                                          pictures of Lisha and I 'cause we don't take much
                                          pleasure in playing in below zero weather. ha ha!

It got so cold here that the window in Dad's work pickup
broke and fell out=( Mom helped him fix a card board window
replacement...


Mom trudged out to take care of her chickens. She went 
out in freezing weather to give them warm water and 
gather their eggs for our consumption.=)


Dad had to clear our driveway. This was a fun job for
him. He has been breaking ice and scooping it from the 
water tanks...by hand (with a shovel of course). It is nice 
when he can do his work in the CAT that has a heater in it.=)

I think snow is so pretty to take pix of but I don't like to play
in it much. I keep saying,"if snow was warm I would probably
play in it when I had time. God made snow cold...He is so
creative. As I said, it is beautiful. I have to remind myself that 
snow is moisture...so it waters the grass so that the cows can eat.
Thank God for snow=)
