Apes & Oreos

Thought this was funny, so decided to put it on here! :)

Today, a little while ago, Mom declares that it's lunch time and we all head upstairs to get ourselves something to eat. We see that Logan has obviously beaten us to the kitchen. He had on a blue apron that came almost to his ankles, one of my mom's. He says, chin lifted, "I'm fixing lunch today!" and leans against the microwave. Then he points to something on the counter and says, "And he's my helper!" We all shift our gazes to the kitchen counter and find Logan's stuffed ape sitting there with another of mom's aprons (she has quite a few) draped over it's shoulders. *laughs* ;)

I settle into a kitchen chair with my hot dog that my little 9-year-old brother lovingly fixed for me. ;) Once I finished I go to the cabnet where we keep all the things you shouldn't really eat, and find a brand new package of Oreo cookies. Yumm! So I pour myself a cup of milk and sit down once again. Then my brother Zach looks over at me as I open up the Oreos and says, "Don't eat all the Oreos, Katie!" He's being most serious might I add. That's something I'll remember for a brother, not only suggesting, but demanding I NOT eat an entire package of Oreo cookies! Ha!

Snow Angel

I have a story for ya! ;)

It was very early on a snowy January morning. We're out and about, all 6 of was still dark...about 5 AM to be exact. Paper route. :)

We were close to finishing up. On one of the last streets. And Logan wants to get out and help. So he runs around with Zach, tossing papers. Then suddenly he flops himself down in someone's driveway and does a snow angel. We're all like, "Get up Logan! Come on!", laughing at him!

About a week after that day we get a card in the mail from somebody on our route. Now this was not unusual. We had gotten tons of cards and tips in the mail from our people on our route. It was really Christmas every day! So we open this particular card and what do we find when we read it?

Dear Allen & Julie Lake,
I am an elderly lady (almost 70) and not in very good health.
I want to thank you for your good service in delivering my paper.
And also for the snow angel in my drive way early morning on Jan. 7th. :)

Neat huh?! It's amazing how the little things, that we think are so insignificant can mean so much to another person.

I got an 89% on my Old Testament Survey test the other day! I was very happy! lol So that would be #1 Yea! ;)

#2 Yea! is...we're having a youth lock-in tomorrow at my church! My youth pastor says that the way he does lock-ins is that nobody falls asleep. So it should be interesting. Haha! I don't think I've ever stayed up all night and then all of the next morning before. I know for a fact I'll be sleeping most of Saturday afternoon away. lol

Will write more later.. :)

Random Thoughts

So...I was sitting in bed last night thinking about random things. One thing that came to mind was when I get my laptop I should so start a journal on it because I can never keep a journal in a notebook. I think it has something to do with writing with a pencil/ pen. Makes my hand hurt. ;) lol Anyway...that led to me thinking about my blog and how it was kinda like an online journal. And then I was like, I should so write on my blog more often! So it is very possible that I'll be writing on here more often. And just about random things....not necessarily special events or occurrences all the time. :)

So, today I have a big Old Testament Survey test. I feel pretty good about it. Old Testament has been my favorite subject this school year so far. Anyways, wish me luck! lol
