An Interactive Twilight Experience.
I thought I would magically wake up on my birthday feeling older. Turns out, I feel the same, look the same, wear the same size clothes. I measured myself against my closet door and I see that I didn't really grow much since last year either. I guess I'm going to be about 5' 4" then. My sister, Connie, is 5' 6" and I would love to be as…Continue
Yay for Spring break! I totally am so done with algebra! I had a test today and I did ok on it but I am really tired of studying! I'm glad we have the next week off. Mom and Connie and I are going to do some spring cleaning and then go into Port Angeles for some spring clothes shopping! I am looking forward to getting a new dress or two.
Quil and I have been doing a lot of hiking lately. Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful and I can't wait! Hiking has become one of my favorite…Continue

We don't really do Christmas like everyone else. It's more of a day to just kinda hang out with family, eat really good food and exchange a few presents with close family. We don't have a Christmas tree or anything like that but I always put up some sparkly lights in my room. I'm weird, I love Christmas music so I always have them playing in my room too. I think we all like Christmas time. People seem to be more friendly and aware of each other. The rest of the year it seems like people bury…Continue

We kinda do Thanksgiving differently here on the reservation. We do what we call a Harvest Festival. It's really fun! The boys do a cliff diving demonstration, there is a canoe race and a fishing tournament and then the big feast! Connie and I baked a ton of yummy stuff and it went so fast! Cupcakes and pies don't last long around here and neither do Emily's muffins!
Quil didn't win the canoe race and he was SO mad.. Jacob, of course, won AGAIN.. like the 5th year in a row or…Continue

Quil took me to trick-or-treat around Forks and then we went back to the rec center for the party. It was so fun to see Aerie dressed up as a cute porcupine from SING. That kid loves to sing, I think she started singing before she even started talking!
I dressed up as Moana. I know.. I know.. but I just LOVE Disney movies and come on, Moana represents the Pacific Islanders and well, I might not be a Tropical Pacific Islander.. I'm still a Pacific girl so it worked for me! Quil…Continue

I'm getting ready and packing for Camp Kirby! I will be there from July 9th till the 15th. Quil is acting weird and grumpy because I'm going to be away for a few days, I kinda get it though. I will miss him too! I think he's going to be hanging out near by, if I'm honest!
Last week we went on the Camp Kirby website and I picked some activities to do. I want…Continue

Today Quil and I made these for dessert! Mom and Connie made burgers on the grill and we had corn on the cob, a really yummy salad and then Quil and I made these awesome Watermelon Cupcakes for dessert!
I love cookouts! They are so fun and…Continue

Wow what a fun day we had hiking on Thursday! Thank goodness we had no school on Thursday or Friday! We are off on Monday too! I love sleeping in!
Anyway, Quil picked me up in his Jeep after Alice dropped me back off at home after our…Continue
First, we have today and tomorrow and Monday off from school. A long weekend which is great. Only reason I have off is because the older kids have some testing they're doing and they are all using our school. I'm fine with that!
Alice picked me up really early and we went to Port Angeles! Get this.. I got the yummiest hot chocolate I have ever had! It had little pink and white marshmallows and a sprinkle of sweet cocoa powder on top. So YUMMY! If you go there, you gotta get…Continue

I had a doctor's appointment this morning so I'm going to be going to school a little late. One good thing is that my mom said we could stop and get coffee and hot chocolate after the appointment so that makes it kind of ok. I had to get a shot today. I don't even know what it's for, something that the school makes us get and so yeah, my mom got a notice that I didn't have it so if I didn't get it by today, I wasn't allowed to go to school. I hate shots, everyone does, but I didn't cry or…Continue

Yesterday I turned 13 ! I thought it would never happen! My mom started to pretend to cry now that she has two 'teenaged girls' in her house!
So yesterday was fun, birthdays around here are a big deal and we don't just celebrate on our birthdays. We kinda stretch it out so it lasts a few days! Today is my actual birthday party so my mom is in the kitchen getting things ready. A few of my friends are coming over, my cousins and aunts and uncles and we're going to celebrate with some…Continue

I'm SO excited! Tomorrow is my 13th birthday and I will be a teenager! Quil is coming over tomorrow after school and we're going to have a little birthday party. I can't wait! We're going to celebrate with grandma and grandpa and some of my aunts and uncles and cousins over the weekend. Birthdays in our family are sort of a big deal!
I asked my mom if we can get one of those Unicorn drinks from Starbucks, because really, it is a special occasion, right? She said, "YES!" and we just…Continue

My cousin Shay came over last night and we had so much fun! We did make up and then watched Beauty and the Beast! We went to bed really late so I'm so glad that tomorrow is Sunday and we can both sleep in a little! This morning we got up at 9 and made waffles and scrambled eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice! . Mom had to go to work so Quil came over to help us clean up from breakfast and then we made brownies! Shay LOVES brownies so we made 2 batches! One for her to take home and one for…Continue

Why do I wake up at 5:30AM when I don't have to go to school? My mom says it's called 'Murphy's Law' and that means, basically, whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. Kinda funny but also really annoying since I could have slept till like 10AM ! Here it is 5:30 and I'm wide awake. The birds outside are so loud I guess that's what woke me up, I really don't know. It's the last Friday of Spring break and Quil is coming over for pancakes at 9. I hope I can survive until then because I'm already…Continue

Today's the last day of the marking period at school. The teachers are going to turn in their grades tonight. The new marking period starts tomorrow. I can't believe it's already the fourth marking period then Summer!! I live for Summer! Quil said he's going to take me out to watch them cliff dive later this week. Maybe I can try it one day but for now all I'm allowed to do is watch. That's ok though, it's too cold anyway! Those guys are crazy! So I take pictures for them so they can post…Continue

So yesterday I went to Alice's Birthday party. It was awesome! I'm not sure who decorated but yeah, they can come do my birthday party! I loved the flowers and balloons! The balloons were huge and round and had dim flashing lights in them to make them sort of glow. It was so cool! They had cupcakes, brownies, cookies and for lunch there was chili, Texas toast and chips and salsa. Texas toast is this huge chunk of bread that was totally covered in garlic butter. I'm going to ask my mom if we…Continue

We're having supper with Billy and Tiffany tonight. I'm so excited because that means I get to play with Aerie! I know she's like 2 years old but she's so cute and funny! I love going there too because they have a sweet kitty named Snickers and my mom is not into cats, like at all. She says cats and dont mix. I think they would be fine. I want a cat!!
We're having some kind of chicken and rice and vegetables. Mom and I are bringing brownies that we made! They're still warm and gooey!…Continue
