I'm Back!

After two days of pure agony *giggles* I have returned! My family went up to our mountain house yet again and it was so beautiful! But the best part was this:


It was sooooooo fun!!!!!!!! I learned how to switch gears and everything! I can't have anyone ride behind me yet, as its still a little jerky when I hit the gas, but who cares! I wish I could do it all day!

(for anyone who doesn't know what a four wheeler is, it kind of looks like an oversized motorcycle with four wheels)


A Post About the Tough Stuff of Life

So in this post, I'm going to tell you a story about a little problem with a bossy friend. If you don't like to hear about other people's problems, then you should stop reading right now, but this particular story is not your typical "bossy friend" story. It's different in an interesting sort of way.

The Results are up!!!!!!!!!!!

Hurry over to my blog, Find That Creative Spark to view the result of my photo contest!


Movie Review (it was HORRENDOUS!!!!!!!!!!)

I'm writing my first movie review! I hope you like it!

This movie was about Maria Gorreti, a saint I deeply admire. So here's my review:








I hope you take some wise advice from me and never, never, never, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, watch that movie. Ever.

Thanks :)

This is a faithful commenter award! I decided to make this when I'd been receiving several comments a day and there was almost always one from the people I'm awarding it to.
These people are:
The Golden Eagle
Meghan (sorry Meghan I still haven't gotten that invitation. Are you sending by email or through blogger?)
I hope you enjoy this award! :)

New Button!

Yea!! I made my own blog button! For some reason i'm really excited about that, even though it's probably a small accomplishment.......... anyway, we had a big neighborhood hockey "party" the other night. It was so fun! My mom was taking action photos and then some parents came by so of course she started talking to them and i took over!

Almost everyone who wasn't playing hockey had some sort of wheel contraption under them! :)

Sorry for the blurred out faces, but I didn't feel comfortable putting pictures of people that showed their faces on the internet without their permission or their parents permission. :/

The photo contest is coming along very s...l...o...w...l...y........ lol I'm begging you, please grab a camera and take a few pics of water, yes water, whatever water source you have, pond, ocean, streams, water being poured from a pitcher, anything you can capture that has at least 55% of water in it. 
Some advice: If you are going to photograph a flower with dew, it better have A LOT of dew!!!!! :) 


Photo Contest

I can't Believe it!

I really hope this does not sound like bragging to anyone, but one of my pictures that i entered in a photography contest is a finalist! Honestly, when I saw the other entries I just assumed that mine had no chance against other ones that were probably taken with nicer cameras than mine. (my camera is well......not fabulous) I am really very honored to be chosen :) Head over to Johanna's blog to vote on who you think should win! The other photos are fantastic! I think it's going to be close!

Annie was amazing!! The actors and actresses were great, the set was really cool and the songs were absolutely INCREDIBLE!! Miss Hannigan was probably the best, but Annie was still great. My all time favorite song in it was "Easy Street", because Lily St. Regis and Rooster were so funny! Rooster stole the stage when they were dancing and the orphans were fantastic too. 
The only problem was there was a 3 or 4 year old behind us who talked during the first act. But during the second act (after the intermission) she was pretty wound up. And i was especially annoyed when she kicked me in the back of the head. Finally, Kate got fed up and asked my dad if he could please tell them to take her out. I'm glad he did because it was getting bad. But other than that it was great! :)


I'm so Excited!!!!!

Tonight Kate, my dad and I will be going to "Annie" on stage! YEA!!!!!! i love that movie and I can't wait!!! I'll post pics later :)


A Special Thanks to.......

Thanks to everyone who offered to help with my three column problem! The easiest way was suggested by The Golden Eagle though. Bleah, I might have to ask you about all the HTML sometime, if I get tired of the backgrounds that Blogger has. Thanks for offering!
Meghan, what can I say, your always there to help! I love all of your comments and thanks for following! 

The Golden Eagle, my Hero! :)

Many MANY thanks to  The Golden Eagle for telling me how to get a three column blog template! You don't know how long i tortured myself trying to figure out the HTML junk, and then TA-DAH!!! The Golden Eagle steps in and now my blog is completely made over! (again!) Thanks again! :)


Does anyone know how to get a three column blog template???? You've probably noticed that my blog has only 2 columns *growls* and I've been trying for a while now to figure out how to get another column. I've been practicing on a test blog i have -which i think everyone should have if you want to make a major change to your blog-and it's not working out too well. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you know how to get one, email me! You can find my email on my profile page. Thanks!! :)))

My Sister is VERY Lucky!!!!

My sister has found about 25 or so four leaf clovers! And guess what? She found a couple five leaf clovers too! :0 i'm serious! Until she found them, i didn't know there was such a thing as five leaf clovers, did anyone else? :)


Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's day to all the moms out there! Today's the day we have to realize how much our moms have done for us, (like giving us life) and we have to make this one of the best days of their lives. Make sure to offer up a few prayers for your mom today! I know I did! Happy Mother's day Mummy! Love you,

Hannah <3

Semi Blog Makeover

How do ya like my new background? I adore it lol! Blue and brown is probably my favorite color combination, besides purple and white!

I'm Entering a Photography Contest!

The title pretty much explains this post. To enter the contest, click here. Here are the photos I'm going to enter:

One of the rules is you can't edit your pictures. I love editing pictures but i managed not too. (seriously, I swear i did not edit them!)
Hope you enjoyed these pics! I sure loved taking them! Good luck to anyone who enters the contest!


Caption Contest Canceled :(

I'm so sorry but I had to cancel the caption contest *sad sigh* something went wrong with the pictures. An update on things going on around here: Luke almost broke my dad's foot, Luke himself pulled a muscle in his leg and Mark is sick.
haha Luke did not try to break my dad's foot, my dad was pitching to him and Luke hit a line drive right at his foot D:


Baseball Season

Don't ya just love watching little league games? I do. My brother Luke plays on a team with kids we've known for about four years now. I used to play baseball when i was eight so I love going to the games and watching my old teammates and Luke. He has a game tonight at a field my dad played on when he was a kid. My dad calls it "the new field" because it was new when he was a kid :) 
He hit two homeruns on the new field and i know Luke's gonna try to do the same tonight! I think they're playing a tough team so it's going to be exciting! I can't wait! 
Another thing I love about baseball games: the candy stand!!! 
A random quote: 
"Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise."
