Acting Dreams!

So this is kinda newish/old news. I've known about it for a week. So here it is.......
This guy had asked to be my friend on facebook, but I didn't know who he was. All I knew about him was that he and I had many friends in common, so I excepted him. Later I received an e-mail from him. He is a director/movie producer. He told me that someone had recommended me for one of his movies and he looked at my profile on facebook and said that I have the looks and he wants me to be the lead in his next movie. Well, actually it's a TV series. The storyline is like that of Superman, but it's about and angel and it has a biblical storyline. (Oh and of course the guy is a Christian) It would be filmed in 2011 and I would have to have the parents permission to act in it. They want to talk to the guy and make sure he's a good person and to make sure that the script is clean. I hope they say I can do it. Eeeeeeeee......I'm so excited!!!! :D

We also put up the "It's A Grand Night For Singing" sign. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful December so far.

Confidant By My Chains

Here rest I, unbound unchanged,
Yet iron hold these limbs still fast,
Health of heart, my body lame,
By grace I be him unsurpassed,

Think it not an ominous bane,
When lions roar but find thee not,
Joy of woe and thy fathers name,
A blessed truth to soon forgot,

Here dwell I, glad bearer of shame,
Facade of life, pass me not by,
Love me joy and strike me pain,
If ever I lived tis a grace to die,

So long as only Christ sustains,
I am confidant by my chains

~ By aLeX G.

This is a poem that Alex Goldman wrote and sent to me and others. He is so talented. Keep up the good work Alex.

Dad and me/ Mom and me

So last night my dad took me out to see the blind side. It was a very good movie and I was very happy to spend time with just him. After I got home I watched movies with my mom until mid-night and we would talk in between commercials. It was lots of fun.
Sorry I missed the party Destiny, I really wish I could have been there. Happy Birthday!

Saturday, November 21, 2009


I hope you have a wonderful birthday girlie and I am sooooo glad that I know you. My birthday card will say more and I don't want to steal anything from it and write it on my blog. :D But I love you lots and I hope your day is full of blessings.

Good News :D

It's final the tumors my mom has are not cancerous. Yay!!! So she will be staying with us longer than five to six months. :D Luv u mommy (even though you never look at my blog lol).

Dad and Me

Wow, last night was great. I got to spend some time with just my dad. My mom is now home and so far the doctors don't think the tumors are cancerous. She is still weak from the surgery so she stays in bed. So my dad and I got to make dinner together last night and it was lots of fun. :D We made meatloaf and playfully argued over what to put in it. After dinner he spent some more time with me and we played chess. Neither of us are very good at it but it just makes it all the more fun. :D

Monday, November 16, 2009


So it's a new week and school has started all over again (well sort of). My mom and dad left for Ashland this morning at 5:30am and took David over to the Counds because he spent the night. My mom is getting surgery this morning to see if the tumors she has are cancerous. Zane, Faith, and I have been left home and will not see them until tomorrow afternoon. We are hoping to have the results by tomorrow. Please pray for the doctors that are performing the surgery and please pray for my parent and us kids that we would work through this, whatever the outcome.

Yay!!! Thank was like the best party ever (if I do say so myself :P) I had a lot of fun and I hope all of the guests did too. We danced, ate, and socialized. It was really nice being able to see and talk to so many friends in one night. Because we are like way awesome Christians, lol, a dad, who is not a believer, of one of the girls there told my parents that he is going to have to think about what he believes in. I thought that was very cool.

Party Prep.

Wednesday, November 4, 2009


Prayer is a wonderful thing and right now that is exactly what I need. I won't go into details, but please pray for me. I could really use it.

Time Change

So the time has changed. Did anybody remember to set their clocks back an hour Sunday morning? I didn't! I got up at looked at the clock and figured we weren't going to church that morning and must be going to the night service because we were late. So I came downstairs to ask and that's when I found out that I had totally forgotten about the time change. Silly me!

Friday, October 30, 2009


Ok so I was reading the Bible this morning and I came across this verse. . .

Isaiah 14:29b
"...for out of the snake's root will come a viper, and his offspring will be a flying fiery serpent."

So that sound a lot like a dragon to me. But I always thought that dragons were mythical beasts. My mom thinks that dragons existed also. I guess they could have been wiped out along with dinosaurs. Well I would like to hear your thoughts on this verse so please leave a comment.

Wednesday, October 28, 2009


Hmmm. . . ok so I feel so awkward today, when I stretch I usually stretch one side more than the other, don't ask me why, I just do. (I know T and AJ that's bad, but keep reading, you will be proud of me) So during my stretches I've been trying to stretch both sides the same. So now one side is more sore than the other and it is quite annoying when I walk.
I'm still trying to get used to the fact that I'm 16. And I think it's absolutely hilarious that whenever I tell somebody that I've had frog legs it takes them a while to believe me. hahaha It always makes me smile.
Now I'm looking forward to the next three days and what they bring. Ballet, Cast party, and Kody's going away party.

Pics I played with










I hope you like them!!!! They're my sweet 16 pictures, but you probably already guessed that, lol.

Just to say "I did"

Ok, so I went to the China Buffet for my birthday and just to say "I did" I tried frog legs and crab. Well it's true, frog legs taste just like chicken, I don't think I'll ever eat it again though because of the thought of eating a frog and they leave part of the skin on them, that was the gross part. The crab was soooo good. I loved it. I don't love what THEY eat but they taste good to me.

Monday, October 26, 2009


Ooooo, I forgot that someone who knows Will also reads my blog, lol. So.......HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILL!!!! We are 16 together. (Even though our birthday's were yesterday) For all of you who don't know will, he is a dear friend who is only half a day younger than me. I think that's rather awesome, lol!

Sunday, October 25, 2009


Yay, I can hardly believe that the day has come. I'm 16. Wow time flies so fast. I mean it feels like just yesterday I moved to grants pass and met my best friend at my 5th birthday party. Wow!!! Ariel you are amazing to have stuck with me and put up with my craziness all these years. I'm so glad I have friends like you. And everybody else who is just to amazing for words. Thank you for all of the birthday best wishes. They mean a lot. I love you all so much.

Fun, Fun, and more Fun!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I know this is like super late and your party was yesterday but I've just been so busy. You are an amazing girl and I hope this next year will be a blessing in your life. WOW 13 welcome to the teenage years. Many blessing. Love you.

So I know he doesn't look at my blog but I can tell the rest of you. So Noah is now a 19 year old. Wow only one year left in this crazy teen life. Many blessing on this next year and I hope you will enjoy it to the fullest.

So the third fun, I went to a football game and homecoming at the cascade christian high school. It was sooo much fun. I met a lot of new people and had the time of my life. I don't remember any names though. That's ok I probably won't see them ever again. And Terena is simply amazing. There are no other words to describe her. I mean who else can unwrap starbursts with there tongue?

Wow, I wasn't planning on posting that many pictures, but I hope you all like them. These are pictures from the last ballet show I am in. It was so much fun and I can't wait until the next one. But as some say "I guess I'll have to". Being in ballet is good enough for me right now. I'm not sure that folk dancing is considered ballet though. That's OK Ruth doesn't know any more ballet than I do and so she just taught us what she did know.

Simply Amazing

So this is that amazing ballerina that dances on the guys head.

Wow, this is so cool!

Haha David I think you'll like this!!!

Sunday, October 18, 2009


Wow, I can't believe that we are done with the musical. It was fun! I'm kinda happy that it's over. I can now concentrate on school. But I'm going to miss being with everyone. Well at least we are going to see each other a couple of more times that I know of for now. It was an amazing experience and I'm glad that I did the musical. The last show went extremely well and we had a fairly good sized crowd. Oh, and I feel sooo terrible about kneeing poor David in the mouth. He did such a wonderful job of acting and singing throughout the pain. I hope you'll forgive me David.

Is SOOOOO Happy!!!

YAY!!! I started ballet today and it was soooo much fun. My teacher this year is a little funny because she just stopped teaching beginning ballet and started teaching level four (my level). So she treats us all like we're three or four. Oh well, she's like 80 something but is really good at ballet even though she can't lift her legs more than five inches off of the ground. Oh and I am not exaggerating. If you want me to prove it come to my ballet class and watch her. It's kinda funny =D. I'm one of the happiest people on earth right now. Dancing is everything to me. Dancing and Acting and of course Singing. And right now I'm doing all three YAY!!! It can't get any better than that especially when I'm doing it with the most amazing people on earth.

It's A Grand Night For Singing!!!

Well, we got through half of our performances. Whew!!! I'm going to miss everyone when this is all over. But we still have one more weekend left. I'm disappointed that songs had to be cut but am very glad they did at the same time. Mercy you are an amazing singer keep up the good work. You are all doing the best you can and it has turned out surprisingly well for only practicing for one month. I have never been in a show like this that had such a big cast and so many songs, but everyone did better than their best and I am very impressed at how hard the cast has work to make this show come together as well as it did. Anne has done a wonderful job on sets, costumes, and songs. If just one of the cast members was not in this show it would not be the same. Getting to know all of you guys has been one of the best experiences out of all of me acting experiences. I have never acted/song/danced with a more fun and friendly group. I may not remember who all is an Anderson, Goldman, or Kruse but I will never forget any of you. And I hope that we will get to be able to see each other a lot more after the musical is over. God bless all!!!

Sweet 16 Pictures!!!!

These are just a few! Let me know if you all want to see more =) (Are you happy now Tianna =P) I'm looking forward to my party and I hope you all can make it. Especially the Andersons, Goldmans, and Kruses.
