What Is Going On?

Mom took our car into a shop this morning and it ends up the head gasket (I think that is what they called it) is messed up (cracked or something). In other words, we are stuck in Iowa and are trying to figure out what to do. I guess the real thing we are trying to decide is if we want to get it fixed or just buy a new car that will get us back home. *sigh* We all want to get home!
I really want to get home because my dog is losing tons of weight because she won't eat or drink. Dad took her to the vet and he didn't find anything wrong with her. (I do want to go home because I miss Dad too. lol)

My voice is a little better today and kind of worse! I can talk more but it is very high pitched and sounds ridiculous so I don't know if that is better or worse...

Here's video of my cousin Sam riding Justina's horse. It's funny because he falls off after getting smashed into a fence!

That's all for now!

Leaving for Home and Ending Up Where We Started

We left for Georgia early this morning hoping to get home around 6:00p.m. Well, we were only on the road for an hour when our car overheated and started smoking. It was still dark out and there wasn't a gas station in sight so we had to park on the shoulder and let our car cool. Thirty minutes later we started again only to have to same thing happen! We pulled into a grocery store (which just happened to be closed) and walked to a gas station to get coolant (?). Well, that only worked for a few minutes so we ended up being towed to a car shop and having the car worked on. After two hours of waiting in the lobby we were told our car was ready. So we got in and again headed for Georgia only to have our car overheat after going only two miles! We got it back to the shop and went back into the lobby. We waited and waited and waited...Finally Mom went to see what was going on and everyone had left for lunch and didn't tell us! They just let us sit there thinking someone was working on our car the whole time!
Anyway, our aunt came and picked us up and we went to AutoZone and a lady there worked on our car and we thought she fixed it. We followed our aunt for ten miles and guess what? we overheated again! So we got towed again - this time all the way to my aunts house. *sigh*
We won't be leaving until Tuesday now -IF our car is fixed Monday.
And to make things even worse I haven't been able to talk all day! Actually, I can whisper but Syd laughs every time so yeah.... I am mute! And it is very frustrating!!!!!!!!!!
Well, that was our stressing day!

I will edit this post someday....I don't have the time or energy to do it now.

Funny Videos

Wow! Two posts in 1 day! That's a first for me!

Dancing Clowns
#1 My aunt and uncle are singing in this

#2 My cousin is playing the violin

On our way to Nebraska we were bored and I thought it would be funny to pull a joke on Austin (a cousin) and I video-taped it. Here it is!

More videos coming soon. =)


Hello Everyone,
We just got back from Nebraska. Here are some pictures....they are not in any order.

My cousin Justina, Me, and Justina's friend Susan
(This was taken right after we got there.)

Justina and I

We were on our way to the fair grounds where we were going to perform and watch the Wild Horse Ministries ( work with a horse. We were only performing there because it was our uncle who set it up and he and all his family were performing and he asked us to too. (I have no idea how to word that so that's good enough!)

This was taken on our way home (I told you they are not in order).
We had to drive through a bad storm.

At one point we had to pull over and wait out the storm.

We have videos that I will post soon. (It looked a lot worse in real life.)

Our cousin B.J. taking a picture of Syd taking a picture of him

Syd got pictures of the boys right after they woke up! I'll be dead if they ever see these.
This is B.J.


Unfortunately, Sam looked normal.

This is Windy their miniature pony. She liked my coffee cup.

I don't think she liked the coffee!

Me and Justina

I only like this picture because I look taller than her!

Justina's horse Bandit. I rode him a lot, but we don't have any pictures of that...just videos.

Our cousin Rosie just after she woke up. She is so cute!

I only uploaded this picture because I thought it was Justina, but I realized it is me because of my ring.

Part of my uncle's farm

Justina riding her horse


She was 'strangling' him while saying she loved him. lol
