Happy Birthday Jesus

Well today I have decided to talk about Jesus Birthday. I went a head and made a home made cake. Celebrating Jesus birth. Because it is so important because God gave us his only begotten son so we can be saved from our sins.

Every year my Mom makes a cake and we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus every Christmas. Well this year I asked my Mom if i could make it with her help! She said YES!! So I choose to make a yellow cake no not a box mix.

First we used this recipe Basic Yellow Cake. My Mom made me read the direction's.She also had me measure the ingredients. it was really cool. I had some problems breaking the eggs but Mom helped me get it right. After mixing everything we put it in the cake pan.

Here is Jesus birthday cake fresh from oven. Smells so yummo!
I am so proud it is looking good even without frosting.I can not wait I am so excited!! After it cooled seemed like for ever We started icing it.This is the butter cream icing recipe

I decided to use blue for boarder because it reminded me of the ocean.I am very proud of this cake. It is the first one I did almost by myself.

Here is Jesus Birthday Cake with candles. Well it is a portion of the bunches that should be on it. But if we would have put all of them we wouldn't have a house standing. Now that's a lot of CANDLES...


My daddy caught us singing Happy Birthday to Jesus.I am so embarrassed but it is for a good cause! I love you Jesus thank you for loving me..


I tell you that this cake was AWESOME and I am very proud of myself. Thank you Mommy for helping me.

Turtle are Cool!

Today I'm going to talk about turtle. There are many varieties of turtle in the world. I have read that there are 270 and counting. Thats not a lot but sure seems alot to me.

They say Turtle have been on the earth for over 230 million years. What's  really cool is they where here before dinosaurs. Can you believe it they are really OLD. But they must be really cool to God because they have been on earth for long time.

Turtles can live almost anywhere!! In 230 million years, they have evolved to utilize very different habitats. They live everywhere on earth except the Arctic and Antarctic. The following examples will give you an idea of the different habitats:

The Desert Tortoise lives in a hot, dry environment, eats grass, and has stumpy feet with toes that are not webbed.

The Malayan Box Turtle lives in a hot, humid, aquatic environment, eats everything that it finds in the water, and has webbed feet.

The little Vietnamese Wood Turtle lives in cool, limestone mountains, eats primarily bugs, worms, snails and has partially webbed toes. it actually hardly goes for a swim.

The Diamondback Terrapin live in slightly salty waters. Has fully webbed feet and stays in the water most of the time. It eats crawfish, snails, fish, insects and worms.

There are a variety of Sea Turtles that stay in the ocean all the time, coming ashore only to lay eggs. They have flippers. They travel all over the world.

 After learning there are several different types of turtles and they live in different types of habitats. We go on to ask do all turtles have shells? Yes all Trutles have shells but not all of their shells are the same.And were not talking about sea shells.  They all have different shells. Some turtles have soft shells and others have box looking shells while others have shells that look like armor. So then we go on to ask can turtles take of their shells? Well no they can not.they would be naked and unprotected.

Another question would be can turtles hear? We yes they can and they even have ears. Not ears like you and me but they have ears inside their heads.They dont hear very well outside their heads. They hear from the nerve endings inside their head.

 Then I got to thinking what is the biggest turtle sea turtle is the Leather Back Sea Trutle it grows as big as 7 feet long and wieghing about 2000 pounds. Thats so cool!

 The biggest land Turtle which by the way is called a Tortoise. They get as big as 500 pounds and grow up to 6 feet.

The biggest fresh water turtle is the Alligator Snapping Turtle. They grow to be about 175 pounds and are about 26 inches long.

Then we come to the smallest turtle. It is actually a tortoise. The name is Speckled Cape padloper tortoise they grow to be about 3 inches.

Here is another interesting question. Are turtles poisonous? Well no they are not they do not have teeth or fangs. But I did read that there is a box turtle that has made people sick from eating their meat, because they eat poisonous mushrooms.

Do turtle take care of their babies. No they have are not good parents at all. The Mommas lay eggs and leave. The baby turtles hatch and fend for themselves.

Well I got to thinking what is the difference with turtles and tortois? Well the funny thing is Turtles live in or by water. tortios live on land always. Very cool and makes think why do turtles not get water logged?? But thats the way God made them.

Well there are a lot of happy turtles out there and I feel good about that. Thank you for reading what I found.

A little about Pandas

Panda bears are a friend to the earth.  Because these are my thoughts on Panda Bears. I do love Panda bears. 

Panda bears like the cold mostly in central Asia. The Panda likes to live 4000 to 1100 feet high in elevation.The panda's are loosing with habitat do to humans are building house's and making it to where the pandas don't have a place to call home.
 Panda Bears give birth to 2 cubs in early fall. But usually the Momma Panda lets one die to keep the other cub alive. Baby panda's only quarter of a pound when born. The panda babies live with their Momma until they are about 1 and a half year old.

It was a BLAST!!!!

Hi this is my Momma. We went to Chuck E Cheese and we took this picture. It was a blast. There was a lot of people there I think it was because it was raining and yukky outside. Which makes it a great day to go to Chuck E Cheese. I sure hope you get to go and have fun acting like a kid. It was so cramped but it was fun. As you can see for me I really had fun there. I saved a token and I did not even know until the next day. I wish my friend Katelyn would have come to have fun with me.

This is my family we scrunched together to get this picture kinda don't you think? Momma and Daddy took my sisters and I to Chuck E Cheese because we have been working very hard on our school work and chores. I am glad I did and I will keep doing all the time.
This my picture of my Momma and I at Chuck E Cheese for my 7th birthday.  I can not wait to go again.

my thought on horses!

 I would to talk about my favorite animal. They are Horses. I just love horses. I hope one day I get to own a horse ranch. Now wouldn't be cool ! Some horses are fuzzy like horses who live where it snows.  Some are bright colored like reds and browns and blacks plus there are white horses. I wish I could have one.
I love stickers specially ones that have horses on them. I love them all even the toy My Little Ponys. Yes I know they are not real but I still love them. I also like the one that are called Breyer Horse. I got a pink one from my Nonnie for Christmas! It takes batteries and it neys like horses do. It is so cool. She did a good job.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!

Thank you for reading,
In life, horses are some of the best friends you’ll ever have!

P.s. wish I could take credit for this two saying but I can not. I just liked what they said.

Me and my friend

Well I have been so busy kinda. I have  my best friend ever Katelyn who Love to spend the night when ever they want me to. We have so much fun. Only thing I don't like is when ever Katelyn and my sister Lileigh play together it makes me sad. My sister takes everybody away. She always has friends and I don't. My momma always says that having more then one friend is best. But I don't for some reason other kids think I am mean or they don't like me. I love my sister but she always has friends. I know Katelyn likes her but I don't want them to be friends. Lileigh always gets them to be mean to me. And makes me sad. But Momma helped me to hang with her no little sister yay.
I hope we are friends forever. I am so glad we met. We are in same girl scout troop to. Troop 463 ROCKS! We are taking orders for Cookies. Cookies are so yummy I hope i can sale lots of them ok i hope my sister and I can sale lots of them and our troop makes lots of money! We have to make ideas on what we want to do with it. Hopefully it is a lot how cool would that be!
