This is my Nintendo DS. I got it for Christmas in 2006. I have had it for three and a half years and I'm still playing with it!

I have fifteen games. My favorite is Mario Kart DS. I have been playing with it a lot lately because I'm unlocking different courses to race in, such as Rainbow

Road, Airship
Fortress, Mario Circuit,
Desert Hills, and Yoshi Falls.

My games are: SimCity DS; Super Mario Bros.; Animal Crossing; Kirby Super Star Ultra; Kirby Squeak Squad; Harvest Moon DS; Hannah Montana Music

Jam; That's So Raven: Psychic On the Scene;Imagine Fashion Designer; Super Mario 64 DS; Yoshi's Island DS; Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses; and - whew - Hannah Montana DS.

A. Lot. Of. Games.

Do you think it's ever going to be warm again? These two don't think so.

Yes, I am sorry to say that we got a little bit of snow yesterday, if you can believe that. It made me sick; this is the middle of April! I guess there is NOTHING like a white Easter, right?

It was warm a week ago today(April 16), like, 80 degrees! I hope tomorrow's better, because I want to play soccer again(it's one of my physical activities).

Please, Mother Nature, make it warm again! I am sick of it being cold!!!

Yesterday evening I was laying under one of my trees when I saw a nice little scene that would look really good on this blog, and then I saw more... and got a little carried away. A lot of the pictures are from my yard and one of them is from my next door neighbor's house(not the one with the chickens). Enjoy!

You are reading blog post number 101. It has been that many posts since December 10, 2006.

And then I abandoned you for two years. I really don't know why anymore. Maybe I was just bored... or had a bad case of the writer's rash...

Poor Coraline's father!

But I'm not going to do it anymore. It was a long time.

But meanwhile, let's cheer on for 101 more posts!

Our neighbors have three chickens, whose names are Fluffy, Dixie, and Tweety. They are about one-year old. They have been very good friends with me and mom, since we've looked after them a couple times.

They always watch us. They love to look around their back yard and peck the ground, looking for worms and such. Whenever I talk to them, one of them(Fluffy) sticks her leg up because that's how you know she's listening.

We absolutely love them. And so does Takai!!!

Yesterday we had a very, very strong wind advisory. 41 miles per hour, to be exact. It was terrible. You couldn't even stand outside if you wanted to. And if you were going to go to the lake to do some fishing, I wouldn't highly recommend it.

Takai was scared to death. The wind was blowing the tree branches against the windows so that it would make an obnoxious screeching noise, and that made her even more frightened. But the winds died down today, so she's not that scared anymore(right now she's watching aunt Sadie and mom talking).

If we have another wind advisory, and if there's a girl in a blue dress and brown french braids singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", don't even try stepping outside, not even in your ruby slippers!

Easter was a blast! I got a box of Harajuku Lovers perfume; blue, light green, raspberry, and most importantly, GOLD nail polish; egg confetti(you bang the egg against something and confetti comes shooting out); Paul Frank Lip Smackers; Bon Bons lip gloss; and tons of chocolate(which I mostly ate throughout the entire day!).

And as the Easter basket, a fabulous Kathy Van Zealand purse!!! I love it! I wore it all day!

I got some Easter eggs on Friday for 60 cents. I think that Takai found some, because when I tried to gather up all the eggs to put outside, some were missing!(That darn cat!)

I got a flower pot from the backyard and crushed some bite-sized Oreo cookies and smashed them into pieces so that they would look like dirt. And then I put in a Chocolate rabbit Popsicle stick.

I wanted to surprise everyone by taking a picture of Takai on her kitty condo and saying something like: Takai says: Happy Easter!, but every time I took a picture of her, she would move. And when I showed one of the pictures to mom, the cat left. So that didn't really work as planned.

But she says happy Easter anyway even though it's a day late.

Last Wednesday I found some old friends, Woody and Buzz Lightyear. I sort of - ahem - abandoned them for four years, but not as long as I abandoned Blogger for two years. I have been trying to find them for a couple of years, but I failed every single time. They have been in storage.

Now I have them again so they can be with Jessie 1(the one on the right), Jessie 2(the one on the left), Bullseye, and Ham.

And they still work even though they've been in storage. Woody still says his six phrases and Buzz still says his three phrases.

And my name is still on Woody's right boot like Andy's from the Toy Story movies.

The third movie is coming out this summer, which is the reason why I wanted to get them out in the first place.

Woody's hat is still in storage... and his guitar... literally I forgot them... because I was in a hurry to save the other toys from falling behind these boxes that were stacked on one another.

This is a series of comic books that I have been doing since November 2008. It's about a family, the Murphys, and how they deal with their everyday mishaps, such as taking care of two relatives for two weeks or getting the National Anthem wrong. They are based on my imaginary family(Dan, Nana, Sam, Bloo, Harry, and Charley).

Dan owns a thrift store; Nana is retired and keeps the house in proper order; Sam stays home to take care of her ghost friend, Bloo; Harry and Charley are nonidentical
twins going to kindergarten and causing trouble wherever they go, and I am the aunt, obsessed with laptops, TV, the latest fashions, gossip magazines, and trying to keep everyone from getting into either a train wreck or a car accident.

They have a pet parrot named Cubbling, who was once an office pet and a circus parrot. He likes to eat gourmet foods, and watch his favorite TV show,
An Evening With Mozart. He is in love with Nana's gold plaster owl, which she won at the fair, thanks to Dan. What he really doesn't like is bratty little kids, such as Harry's cousins Conrad, Erica, and baby Juliana.

Here are the book titles, starting with number one:

1. The Murphys' Christmas: A perfect Christmas in 2008
2. The Murphys go to the Farm!
3. The Murphys Vs. The Executive pt. 1!
4. The Murphys Vs. The Executive pt. 2!
5. the Murphys' Road Trip!
6. The Murphys Run for Treasurer!
7. the Murphys Get Locked in the Bathroom!
8. The Murphys' revenge of the Babysat pt. 1!
9. The Murphys' Revenge of the Babysat pt. 2!
10. The Murphys Get a New Car!
and finally,
11. The Murphys Get the National Anthem Wrong!

I'm still working on The Murphys have a Bazaar but it will come out soon. Then it will be book twelve!

Let's hope for fifty more!!!
