I was nominated by Amie to do this award. Lets get started!
First the rules…
1.Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog and put in a graphic of the award.
2.Answer the questions provided and share some facts about yourself.
3. Nominate others and share your blog post with them so that they can accept their award.
Okay. Amie’s questions
What is your favorite book genre?
History and action/adventure/Christian mystery.
What is the first thing you look at when you visit a blog for the first time?
The about page because I want to know about who the author of the blog is. That usually tells me if I will like the blog or not.
What would you rather? A stuffed nose or a sore throat? (The answer can’t be neither.)
A soar throat because stuffed noses or so inconvenient when you’re trying to sleep.
What is the ideal height (If there is one.)
Um, I don’t know. 5’5?
Do you enjoy sharing random facts about yourself?
What is the grossest account in the Bible?
Um, there are a lot of awful accounts which I wouldn’t really want to put here.
Violin, Viola, Mandolin, or Guitar?
I like the violin and mandolin.
Would you rather laugh or cry?
That’s a hard question! The Bible says “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” so I think I would say laughter, but crying is fun too. I mean the sort of crying you do when you are reading an amazing book and the main character dies or something terribly wonderful happens (that probably didn’t make sense to you unless you read a lot of books, like me).
I always say that if the writer can make you hate the story because something sad happens they’re a good writer. Well, not all the time. Sometimes they might do the totally wrong thing, like if Jigson had died. I wouldn’t think it was good book! I would have just gone crazy! (and that probably didn’t make sense to you either if you haven’t read the Baker Family Adventures series)
What is a non-fiction book that has rocked your world?
The Bible, but I’m thinking you probably mean other than that. Um, maybe Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow. It is a wonderfully interesting book and tells about how horrendous the Hitler youth really was. Like one story where eight year old Elizabeth Vetter’s parents scolded her for being so loyal to Hitler. The little girl sat crying on the steps outside her house when a Hitler youth leader came by and saw her crying. He asked what the matter was and she told him. The next day, Elizabeth’s parents were arrested. I plan on doing a book review about it… Sometime…
Now for the facts
I need to go to Scotland. Yes, it is definitely a need!
I am always reading. I don’t want to go a day with out reading. Life would be terrible if you didn’t read!
I really like soft pretzels! They are so yummy.
I have been a history fan for as long as I can remember.
When I was six or seven I wrote down my first story (which happened to be historical fiction).
I like to practice my Scottish, French and English accents.
I like to listen to music when ever I am writing a story, blog post, (I’m actually listening to some right now) or am just on the computer. I heard that it helps your brain, plus it is relaxing and helps me to concentrate. I usually listen to classical or Scottish/Irish.
And that is all the facts! Now nominees…

Last Friday my family and I went to Georgia to spend the weekend with our ‘cousins’ and arrived at their house around 6:00 or so. We girls talked a bit and looked at the bunny and the little kids played dolls and made movies in the play room, then it was dinner.
Afterwards, most of us went outside and played a crazy game of capture the flag. it was hard to play because we used Nerf guns, plus our older brothers didn’t want to play so there wasn’t anyone really in charge. Anyway, it was still fun!
After that we older girls mainly talked. Later on everyone got together for family devotion time. Most of us went to bed when devotions were finished, but I stayed up late reading a book called The White Gypsy.
Saturday morning both of our families went to agitate at an abortion mill. Later in the afternoon two of my sisters and our friend made scene one of a movie we are working on. there are four scenes in it. unfortunately, we weren’t able to do more then one so we’ll have to wait for next time to complete it… The littles played hotel and with Legos while the older boys played a game of Axis and Allies
We then spent the time talking and I read. After dinner we talked about Nazi Germany and different holocaust stories. It was quite the conversation which led to me having a very peculiar dream that night.
Around nine, my sisters, (Jaclynn, Miranda and Sara) along with two of our cousins, watched the movie The Runner from Ravenshead. My sisters and I have watched it before and told them all about it so they were excited to watch it. It has the cutest little actors in it! Two bowls of popcorn were eaten while watching the movie, and we ended up going to bed around eleven.
The only April fools trick I did was have my younger sister and Rose short sheet my cousin’s bed Saturday night. XD
The next morning, Resurrection Sunday, we packed up our car and left for church after a time of singing and reading the bible. I planned on taking pictures of the trip, but then didn’t feel much like doing it. Sorry.
Soli Deo Gloria!
P.S. My family and I will be traveling for a few weeks so I might not be able to post for awhile.
