We were away in Wisconson as some of you have probably read on my mom's blog. My dad took his laptop, but the charger cord was not in the bag, so neither of us had the chance to update. We had a lot of fun on this trip, and ate WAYYY to much food!! Lol...
There is one thing I wanted to blog about in particular. It is a funny story of how I thought when I was littler. On the way to my grandparents house, there are a lot of those "rumble strips" or whatever they're called. Well, I never understood why they needed to put those in the road, so I came up with my own explanation. This is it- there are some people that crashed their cars a long time ago, but their cars stayed there and the people were still in them (don't ask why I thought that, I have no idea) but the road was built on top of them. They didn't like it when people rode over top of where they were crashed under the cement, so they would honk at you when you drove over them. It sounded different though because the cement muffled the sound of the horn.
I know, I was a looney back then. Still am, actually. And I don't understand those things yet either. Except to get people to pay attention or wake up or something I suppose. I don't really know.
I am still making things for a fundraiser for Haiti. If anyone wants pot-holders, Christmas cards, birthday cards, or stationary I am making those right now. I am having a table at the craft sale with Melissa and maybe Anna and her mom I think, so I will be selling those there, but if anyone wants any before the sale or can't make it to the sale, let me know so I can get them to you! Same rules as my mom though- I can (have my mom) deliver it in Allendale, anything else will have to be picked up or shipped by you.
Thanks and have a happy Saturday/Sunday or whenever you read this!!

So I don't really know what this video is about because I can't watch it until I post this. I know it has something to do with when we were in Haiti this August, but I don't actually know what. Holy cow, I just about had a heart attack! The video went away for a second and I thought it deleted, but then it came back, so " 'sall good!" Had to say that... lol. I think this is a video of the kids from Barbancourt singing, but I could be wrong. I am not liable for anything by guessing that except maybe a genius award if I turn out to be right. If, by the rare chance that I am wrong, I don't get anything and I'll go cry under this computer desk right now. My mom will tell you if that happens I suppose.
Oh, and the video was taken on either mine or my mom's camera, so there is no sound. Nothing is wrong with your computer or speakers or headphones or whatever. Suprisingly, nothing is wrong with the video either. The camera just has no sound recorder, so it is a quiet movie. Just imagine it is one of those old movies from like 19something when they were all black and white and there was no sound, just words that come up after every picture. Except there are no words, so just pretend it is one of those, but everyone was too involved in the singing to want to type all the words out for the video.
Gotta go finish my book... T2daO2daR2daI

These are some kids at church too. I think my mom took this one.
Some boys at Bible School. Don't know why he looks so mad, but the other one is smiling. Maybe the smiling one pinched the mad one. I don't know.
A few girls outside the church after church was done.
Girls at the orphanage we were at. The ones in the background by me are cousins. Their names are Katsana and Fosaee. My mom was holding that other girl, but I don't remember her name.
So I was thinking about it, and I realized that I haven't posted about a specific "thing" on this whole blog! Shocking, right? So I decided to post on one of my favorite things ever... Haitian kids! I put some of my favorite pics on, but then I found out you can only post five at a time, so I am going to add another one some other time. Don't worry! Lol.
I think for the fundraiser I am going to babysit for people who want me too (even the Yonkers, but I might have to recruit Anna to help me). Also, I can make brownies for people if you want any. I am going to go with donations, but the minimum would be $2.00 for a plate. Melissa mentioned maybe having a table with her at the craft sale and selling some of my potholders or something. So I might do that if it works out. Otherwise, if you have any other ideas for me or want to buy something, I open for comments!!
