Worship songs

Hey guys! It's good to be back!

Last night Ashley and I had our Drama performance and we're so pooped after staying up so late. My mom directed the production so she was as well. As a wonderful result, we skipped out on school today to relax and get re-rested.

Our lives have been so busy lately and I couldn't help but enjoy this day full of sleeping and lying around in my room. Oh, and eating of course. *Wink.

Anyways, moving away from my laziness, I have also been searching out songs for the worship team at my church today. We have a practice tomorrow and I have a list of songs I want to add to our collection/make sure are in our collection. These songs have been on my mind all week and I need to share. 

  • Worshiping You - Deluge
  • My Heart, Your Home - Watermark
  • Draw Me Nearer - Meredith Andrews
  • Broken Vessels (Amazing Grace) - Hillsong
  • Grace Flows Down - Christy Nockels
Go check out these songs and come back to my blog for so more posts coming soon!

I love you all!

Ready Or Not Tot : : Day 2

As for the update on the Ready Or Not Tot... 

To start out with, last night I slept wonderfully because Autumn (my tot) was somehow messed up and didn't make a peep all night. I learned this morning how to reset it and I have had a crying doll since noon, right as my friends Rebecca and Kristen came over. Sorry guys. 

Because I slept good last night and was not woken by my screaming child, Abby and I have decided to share the baby tonight that way it's fair and even in our minds. 

I actually don't mind having Autumn because I really do like kids. I know that real babies are a lot more work than this simulator, but I still am looking forward to my actual baby despite this doll and it's inability to leave me alone. 

Autumn is now "resting" in one of Ashley and Lexi's baby doll cribs that they have let Abby and I borrow in return for chances to "babysit" the doll. It's been great so far. In fact they had a field day this morning when the doll wasn't actually working and I let them play with her until my teacher got back to me. 

The girls made a crib she could lay down in, redressed her a coupe times, and even put together a diaper bag! Honestly, if I still had all my dolly stuff, I would have been doing the same. 

I hope you all have a good night and I will give you one more update tomorrow on how my half of the night goes. 

Love You All!

Ready Or Not Tot : : Day 1

Abby and I take a Life Management class at our co-op that basically prepares you takes you on a fake trip of the real world. The class started with high school graduations, college applications, and job interviews. We are now at the stage of which the class has to take care of the Ready Or Not Tot for about two days. Tonight is the ending of day one. 

It's been two hours since I picked up Autumn - my name for the baby - and she has not done anything but sit quietly watching our every move. Ashley and Lexi are insistent that the baby "is not turned on." It is, of course (I checked). I'm pretty sure that they just want to watch it cry and me scramble to shut it up. I know this because the girls have told me about fifty times already... *sigh.

I was told when the class was getting the info on the doll that it would cry after twenty minutes of being programmed. Again, to recap, it's been two and a half hours and I'm a little freaked out. I have to admit, I'm curious as to what will happen when and after the fake baby cries. I want to know how horrible the crying will be in the middle of the night. I pray it's not building up the cries for twelve o'clock this morning. Please pray with me. 

I will let you all know tomorrow morning how the night goes and when the tot finally cries.
