Meet Zorro!

Last night, around 8:30 Mom had to make a quick trip to the grocery store...mysterious? Well not to me, I just figured she had to get something right before bed time. At around 9:30pm I was ready to go to bed, but Dad wouldn't let me...he said we were going to have a little graduation party for me...Mom had gotten a few little gifts. I was totally not expecting anything that big, as I told my parents I really didn't need anything :)

Well, in walks Karissa with a gift bag. I noticed that she was holding it a little weird, I just figured maybe it was glass or something. When I opened the gift, to my utter surprise and astonishment, there lay the cutest little Chihuahua! I had NEVER in my wildest dreams expected that! I have always loved and wanted one, but Dad has vowed that we would never get a Chihuahua, and Mom most defiantly didn't want another I never expected such a gift, though I really wanted one.

He is a smaller type of Chihuahua, and most adorable! I decided to call him Zorro, because of the dominant black on him :) He is like 10 weeks old right now and was born around Easter. He is tiny and fits right in my hand and in one of Dad's shirt pockets :)

I am forever grateful for this WONDERFUL present! Today, Zorro went with me to my guitar lesson, then we went shopping for a carrier for him! He just slept in my arms as I roomed the stores today.

When we got home, I introduced him to Phineas, who just adored Zorro! They are going to be great buds :)

On top of all this Grandma took me shopping yesterday for my birthday, so I also now have a bunch of new clothes! She is a wonderful Grandma, and is getting good at finding stuff that I like :)

My blessings are abundant!

p.s. sorry the picture is blurry...he doesn't like to stay still :)

Photoshoot Time with Cousins!

Yesterday, I was able to take Destiny, David, Alex and my sis, Karissa, out for some photoshooting. I'm trying to compile some pictures for my portfolio for when I start a photography business! They were so wonderful and did a great job smiling, posing and whatever I asked them to do. These are just a few of the 600 pictures that I took. I posted some more on my facebook page, so you are more than welcome to go there and look at them...just click here

All in all we had a fun time and made some good memories!

The '08-09 Speech season is over

Well, as we enter the glorious summer season, it does present a some what downfall...the end of the Clarion Club weekly sad.

Last Tuesday, Clarion had it's annual end of the year banquet. All the seniors this year got up and ran some very fun and silly activities, organized by our lovely Mrs. Deems! After that we gave our thankful quotes and talks to everyone who has made Clarion club possible.

When the banquet was over, we all just had to go to Mickey D's (McDonalds) for ice cream, as is tradition! In the end we ended up dancing the Virginia reel in their parking lot till midnight...great times!

Now we get to look forward to the '09-2010 season!

Dancing in the parking lot :)
