So what did you see at the Zoo?

Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 5:28 pm by Joelle

So the Zoo is just awesome. I don’t care what you say I love the Zoo. There’s only one thing about the Zoo the creeps me out.


How is it that they always know where you are? lol, srly.


And these are probably one of my favorite animals. They look like little bitty deer. They’re so cute. They’re called Dik Diks or something. But these aren’t just any Dik Diks.


These are Kirks Dik Diks. As to who Kirk is, and why he just left his Dik Diks at the Zoo, I do not know. But the Zoo was awesome.

So you know my favorite animal, what’s yours.

So It’s me again after yet anther loooooooooong break. Yeah not so good with the posting huh? Anyway a couple things have happened sense I last posted

1. The black and white Rubik’s cube and I are cool once again. That is, I don’t think it hates me anymore. lol

    2. Then there was this little thing called AMPLIFIED! Which was Awesome!!!! lol. It was so much fun! The group I was with was the most awesome group of girls I could have been with. And the worship was amazing to say the least. God’s presence was sooo strong you could almost see it! So worth forty five dollars! 😀

    3. And discovered Escapa! It’s a reflex game I guess? My best time so far is like 20.75 seconds. What’s yours? Hmmmmm?

    And this is just pretty. 😀

    OK sorry, I know I haven’t posted in like a quadrillion year, well maybe not thaaaaat long but you know.

    Ok So I recently learned how to solve a Rubik’s cube. I wasn’t really interested in it at first, And then my cousin Matthew was like “I bet you couldn’t solve it” I pretty much took that as a challenge. lol. Any way I thought I would show you guys a picture of one particular Rubik’s cube. You know what a Rubik’s cube looks like? It’s a, red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and white cube, yeah? Well not this one.


    This one is black, dark gray, gray, light gray, white, and silver! And it hates me. :(

    Moon Halo?

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures, Random at 12:21 pm by Joelle

    The familiar 22° halo around the Sun or Moon occurs because of refraction in tiny hexagonal ice crystals in the air. With the 60° apex angle of the prism formed by extending the sides of the crystal and the index of refraction of ice (n=1.31) one can calculate the angle of minium deviation to be 21.84°.

    The moon halo above was photographed at Pearl River, LA just after the passage of a cold front. It is attributed to refraction in high altitude ice crystals. Ground level temperature was close the freezing point and the relative humidity was about 70%. It had rained the previous day, but was clear most of this day, yet apparently there was considerable high altitude moisture to form the ice crystals. The 22° halo around the sun is usually brighter on the horizontal line passing through the sun because of preferential orientation of flat hexagonal ice crystals as they fall. This produces the parhelia or sundogs. The moon halo appears uniform over the full 22° circle because the moon was close to zenith and there was no preferential orientation from that vantage point.

    So we get a call from my brother “Joshbob” last night and he’s like “look at the moon”. And we’re like “what’s so special about the moon tonight?” So we do indeed go outside in the 35 degree weather.( chilly!) And there is the moon halo sitting there around……well the moon. And it was so awesome! Now my camera was not able to capturer this wonderful event. Turns out that slapping an apple sticker on your camera does not in fact improve the quality of it. Anyway I hope every one has a great Christmas! Bye! o<:)

    Random pics

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures, Random at 12:15 am by Joelle

    So I just took some “random pics” the other day at the park and I thought I’d share. They’re all in black and white because I think that makes them look better. So here you go. 😀






    I like the one of Julia looking all dramatic and everything. looking off into the distance. lol 😀

    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 4:23 pm by Joelle

    Prince Caspian!!!!!!!!

    Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! I’m soooo excited! I’ve been waiting for the next Chronicles Of Narnia movie to come out. I’m so happy. I cant wait till The Voyage of The Dawn Treader comes out in the movies. That’s my favorite one. But I’m still really glad this out is coming out. I’ve read all the books and they’re are all soooo good. Has any one else read them? Because you need to. That is my personal recommendation. They’re fantastic!:)

    Keep that stick in the Fire!!!

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 9:00 pm by Joelle

    So sorry for the whole lack of posting and whatnot. Half of it was just me being lazy, half of it was being on vacation. But we’ve been back for a couple days so we’re back to that whole lazy thing. Anyway we went camping for our vacation and it was really fun. We go with these two other families and practically don’t stop laughing the whole time. It’s a blast! We probably can’t call it camping though. The only thing that really qualifies it as camping is that we’re in the woods. We stay in cabins the whole time. And it’s a good thing we do, because it rained a little the last day. GO CABINS!!. lol. But most of the time we usually just sit around the fire, talk/laugh, and poke sticks in the fire. Hence the name of the post. “Keep the stick in the fire!” lol Because once the stick goes in the fire it gets hot and people get burned if it comes out.


    We did spend some time inside, mostly just crowded around the iPhone one of our friends had. But we were outside for most of the time hiking or something of the sort. Well that just about sums up our Thanksgiving weekend. How was yours?

    Hillsong baby!

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 6:44 pm by Joelle

    So we’re standing in line for the concert and we’re waiting, and waiting for two hours out side the door waiting for someone to open it. So finally someone comes to the door and said “Since you guys have been waiting here the longest were going to let four hundred of you in.”


    So we’re like, OK, two doors and we’re pretty close to ours – we can get in no problem. So we start to walk in. Dad gets in, all right we can do this, only five more people, little sister walks right in no problem. FOUR HUNDRED! Slam! Doors closes right in front of me. My Mom, my brother Christopher, my sister Amy, and I had to wait out side for thirty more minutes, listening to people chanting ” I love Jesus yes I do. I love Jesus how ’bout you!”  But it was so worth it.

    Livin’ The Dream!

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 3:10 pm by Joelle

    So this weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of Live The Dream women’s conference. It was amazing. Holly Wagner, Christine Caine, and Tammy Trent were all great! I think everyone had a blast. I know I did, but maybe it was because I was there with some of the most amazing people I know. Including Amy and Annette Phillips.


    I took these pictures with this cool setting on my camera. The real shirt was the pink one and I changed the other ones. My sister Claire is modeling the shirt, too bad you can’t see her. Sorry.

    He’s Back!

    Posted in Awesomeness, Pictures at 11:15 pm by Joelle

    Joshy is back!


    I missed him sooo much, and I’m so glad he’s back. Right here he is sharing some of his two thousand pictures! Srsly, he’s got tons of pictures! And he’ll probably post some on his blog later, because he’s got some really beautiful ones. But for now it’s off to bed to try to catch up on some sleep.
