What a Wonderful Day!

Today is my birthday. I kinda wish that would've let me off the hook for school. Sadly, it didn't. I received lots of nice presents. My daddy told me he's going to take me out to lunch somewhere and I'm excited about that. I was wrong about knowing all my gifts. I should've known my mom had something up her sleeve! We're not going skiing, as it's very cold. I hope we can go skating. That would be really fun! I haven't gone this whole winter. We don't really have a pond as of right now. All the cattails took it over. I hope by next winter there will be water in there.

Stationary from Emily.

My Sweater! I picked it out so I was really excited! :)

Beautiful Doodles! This is so cute.

A heart bracelet. I love it! (just in time for valentines day too!)

Chocolate Covered Oranges

Today I made chocolate covered oranges. Yummo. Our family went hog wild when I brought them in from outside. I think they were a hit. It was so simple I can't believe I've never done them before. It's almost time for supper here so this can't be long. I'm excited for AWANA tonight. It's a children's ministry at our church. I went when I was little so it's fun to help. After that Emily and I go to youth group.

So easy to make! So delicious too!

{Ok, I think that this photo is sideways... I don't have time to fix it. Sorry.}

Busy Day

So, tonight is American Idol. It seems like a good way to end a busy day. This morning we went to art class (I'll post some photos of my finished artwork) then we went to Border's. I got to pick out my birthday present! OK yes I do know all my birthday presents... I know. It's sad. I don't have too long to get them though! This Friday I will have them all in my possession. :) I started milking it tonight. Daniel was like: ''Leah! You can't start milking your birthday yet!" Me: ''Yes I can! You started two weeks before yours!'' So... Maybe it wasn't two weeks, but you never know! Oh yeah, the highlight of the whole day: dentist! Ugh. Big no likie. I felt like I was going to barf when she put the fluoride in my mouth. I'm just glad it's done with. Now, with Lacey sleeping on my lap as things are peaceful, it seems like everything is right in the world.

This is the cake I want. Here you go Emily!

What I'm Listening to

Lead Me To The Cross. I sing it all the time!

Oh How He Loves Us. Gotta love it.

Hold My Heart. *Sigh* (I got the CD for Christmas)

Time to Party!

So, yesterday, we went to a party. It was amazing (as usual). Our good friends opened up their home and it was a great turn-out! They have gatherings more then most families, which is such a blessing! I just love to go to their house and hang out with them. It's a family of 5 boys and an exchange student and a young lady who is staying with them. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera. :( I brought my friend Amanda, so I had someone my age the (almost) whole time. We also invited another family to come with us. Sometimes it's a bit overwhelming with all the people there, but you just squeeze past everyone and you'll be fine! I really had a wonderful time.

Amanda and me :)

A Gift For My Grandma

Today is my grandma's birthday. So I drew her this picture. Drawing is my love. It makes me so happy. Why don't I do it more often? I should get my priorities straight here. I couldn't decide if I should color it or not. So I took my mom's advice and colored it. I hope she likes it...

Black and White

Here it is all colored except for the dirt. (I don't feel like uploading one that has the dirt painted in)

In progress... My messy work area

The Great Outdoors

Lately, or more this weekend, I have been spending more time outside. I like it. But, I didn't quite get to my school reading today either, so I suppose there's a trade off. Daniel has a little snowmobile (our family is into snowmobiling) and we were pulling each other around on it today. It was pretty fun. My mom and I also went snowshoeing before church. Our family has passes to our local ski park and we went there on Friday. So I suppose I got my exercise for today. Happy Sunday!

Snowshoes! It's really fun. Lacey loves it.

Our ski place. It's pretty neato.

This is pretty close to what Daniel's snowmobile looks like.

My Favorite Things...

Rain drops on roses, Whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens... Ahh I just love that movie! We just watched it on New Years Eve when we were waiting for midnight at our cabin while munching on candy. I know that will be a memory I'll have forever. It was my first time spending New Years away from home, and not having Emily there. But, enough about my cabin. (Although you will hear about it more later!) Here are some of my favorite things:

I'm dreaming of Florida

Well, I suppose all the credit for the layout of my blog should go to my sister, Emily Anne. Last night while we were watching ''Little House on the Prairie'', she re-did it. I was not even watching her do it! She knew my favorite color I guess. (Which is orange) I really like it. For a change of subject, I want to go to Florida. For the last two years in spring, we went to Fl, for a month. Can I say that it was completely amazing??? Well, it certainly was! We have some family down there so it was fun to visit my cousins who I don't remember seeing before two years ago. Plus, my aunt, takes us to all the places tourists don't go as much. We're talking (at least my parents are) about going down again this spring. But we would need to find a condo first! That's the issue. Oh, I hope we can! Just going outside on a day like this makes you wish even more. It's only 10 degrees out right now...

Here is my cousin, Emily & Daniel.

The meaning of my blogs name

If you were wondering what "Fleurs Des Champs" means, it means "Lovely Wildflowers". It only seemed appropriate, since I live in the country and in the spring and summer I see plenty of lovely wildflowers! (I liked this photo even if it was from our garden, so not entirely "wild")

Here I go!

Well, here I go. I'm not sure I'll be able to keep up with all the people who post something new here everyday, but I'll do my best. I love my family. My Dad, Mom, sister Em & my brother Dan. I also love my pooch. A 4 lb. bundle of naughtiness, joy & energy! I love all the seasons, but I really like summer. I love FL, flowers, reading, Christmas, snow, art, friends anything really...
