A video I just Have to post

This video has been what you can call, all the craze in our family. Our family enjoys weird, random, funny movies. And this one has got to be in the top 10 in that category. It may seem disgusting (if you're the type to get disgusted), at times, but in a big family with guys, you learn to not mind that kind of stuff. ;) Here is the video:  .  Enjoy!

A day in the life

For those who don't live in a wonderfully large family, you will now find out what it's sorta like. :) 

8:30- Mom woke me up to make breakfast... Some of you may like to make breakfast, but if you have to make breakfast for six hungry men, plus the women, all by yourself, you will soon decide that making breakfast is for those who are overachievers. And then you decide that you're not one. So you decide to just make the easiest breakfast possible, and don't overwork yourself. Save your energy for the better things in life!
9:30- Took a shower. Even though I was supposed to do dishes first. But since my mom took liberties to cut my brothers' hair (Quentin), I decided that the haircutting boutique was in the way of kitchen possibilities, and took a shower first.
10:00- Did dishes in blazing fast speed... almost. 
11:00- Practiced piano, the first time since Thursday. But don't tell my parents that. 
1:52- Mom tells me to help her with the "school" room. I know better not to go against her wishes. Even though the room is drowning in junk of ages past and present.
12:36- Succeeds in clearing the table, mostly.
12:37- Makes a sandwich quick! I'm hungry.
12:39-Succeeds in downing the sandwich. Now what else is there to eat?
12:45- Goes downstairs to the computer, what i did is non of your business, and is probably boring anyways. But if you must know, I got on there to play Halo: Combat Evolved (gasps from around me). What? It's only the trial version! (I say defensively) Anyways, I only played for a little bit.
5:00- Gets off Halo, and starts... Just Kidding! haha! I seriously didn't play Halo for that long. :P
1:22- Is going to the dentist, but mom can't find her keys... of course. We're doomed! luckily, my brothers drive up and give Mom her keys. We're saved! 
1:33- Gets in to the dentist and gets some painful work done on some of my cavities. :-/ 
3:28- Mom drives around crazily, and finally remembers that we need vitamin C at the GNC store that we just passed.  Can't feel half my lip or half my tongue.
4:39- Finally starts to make bread that we've been needing for several days. And don't think I'm lucky to be able to make bread. When you have to make six loafs in a process of a WHOLE hour (not including baking time), Every week (mostly), then you may not think I'm lucky any more. I think.
5:37- Cleans up after myself (aren't I perfect??) and listens to some music, but decides that my head is too tired to process this beautiful music, and pretty much turns it off. mostly. 
6:56- Starts helping mom make dinner. sorta. 
8:13- Waits for the boys to get back home since my teeth and jaw are aching, so i want Wesley to make me a smoothie, since he makes them the best. So i play Halo while I wait. and then I get my really good smoothie, and slurps it down. Cuz It's REAL good! 
9:41- And now I'm here. Typing this for you because I'm a little bored. And there's nothing else I can post on here. soooooo, I'm tired....
9:42- being bored, and typing. Ok, welllll I think thats it for today. enjoy this to the utmost, or your doom will Surely come Upon You!! Maybe. 

P.S. Never trust a boy to clean up the bathroom.... 'Nuff said...

A Friday Night Concert, With Problems...

 Friday was both hectic, yet fun. My cousin came over, for a sort of sleepover with just us two. That's about how far I get to a sleepover party. But, to get her here was the part we needed to figure out. After much deliberation, and thoughts that we might have to cancel our sleepover (much to my chagrin), we finally figured out the only way to get her here. She would have to go to a classical music concert. She lives about 45 min. away from us, so it's sorta hard to get my cousin over. Some of my family and a friend were going to a concert in Indianapolis. They would be able to pick Sarah up, and go to the concert. She agreed, and we had a pretty fun time, with Beautiful violin music. The best player was in the second half, Augustin Hadelich, who has a CD called Flying Solo. You should look him up, he has a VERY amazing story. Before the concert we had some pictures in the Indy downtown circle. These are one of the pictures. And since I haven't uploaded a picture of myself yet, I'm on the very right, looking a little umm... weird... ;)  My cousin (Sarah) is right next to me, and those are my two sisters. Anyways, we had some fun. But the Real "fun" was just to come. We starting to drive home, still in Indianapolis, and our car started to overheat. So my brother drove into the nearest parking lot to put some fluid in, to cool it down. Then, my cousin made the observation that, we were in a Jail parking lot! My brother had to wait for the car to cool down before putting fluid in, so we waited. Then, a group of guys walked out of the jail. My brother, thinking they might be workers, told us to close the doors of the car and stay down to be safe anyways. One of the guys of the group came over to my brother (Garrett) and asked him for a phone. He told him that "he and his buddies just got out" of jail, and he needed to borrow "a phone to call his mom". Garrett just asked him if he couldn't just borrow the restaurants phone across the street, they would let him. But the guy insisted, and Garrett wouldn't let him have his phone. Finally the guy walked off cussing. Garrett finished up, and we finally got out of there. As we were driving away, we saw the guy's buddies in the police office on the phone. We were pretty sure that guy was up to no good. We finally got home at about 1:00 am with problems on the way of the other car with my sister and friend in it having car problems and us have to stop about every 500 ft. to charge their battery. We finally just got home. But even though Sarah and I were exhausted, we still got a few giggles in, and had a Most wonderful time the next day. :)
