Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everybody!!!

I changed my blog colors, ONCE AGAIN, but you boys and haters of pink should be glad, 'cause it isn't pink this time.

After the month ends, Butterfly will be taken down(but Caremelldansen and Beethoven are still being left, due to the demands of a certain sibling) and then I will be putting up some Christmas music.


Oh, yeah, er, um, I'll be getting along with that tag, um, sometime, OK, Fox? It just might, er.....take a while. =P No, I'm really almost finished, I'll have it up tomorrow, hopefully.

It'll be Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I decided to post a recipe that I think is AWESOME. If you like cheesecake, of course.:P

Pumpkin Cheesecake
1 1/4 cups graham crackers crumbs (about 24 squares)
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (We use butter)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons brandy, if desired.( We don't add that one, too much trouble)
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin(NOT PUMPKIN PIE MIX)
4 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
5 eggs

1. Heat oven to 325○F .In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and melted butter. In greased 9 inch springform pan, press crumb mixture over bottom. Wrap foil around outside of pan to prevent drips. Bake crust 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes or until completely cooled.
2. In a small bowl mix flour, pumpkin pie spice, brandy(optional) and pumpkin; set aside. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in brown sugar and 2/3 cup granulated sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, on low speed just until blended. Gradually beat in pumpkin mixture until smooth. Pour over crust.
3. Bake 1 hr. and 15-25 min. or until set but center of cheesecake still jiggles slightly when moved. Turn oven off; open oven door at least 4 inches. Let cheesecake remain in oven 30 min. Run knife around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool in pan on wire rack 30 min. Refrigerate 6 hrs or overnight.
4. Run knife around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake. Carefully remove side of pan before cutting cheesecake. Store cheesecake covered in refrigerator, 16 servings.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!♥

Hello everyone!! First of all, today at 1-something in the morning I turned thirteen, and became a teenager!!! And, no, I did NOT stay up until then. For some strange reason I wanted to be asleep at that moment. After looking at pictures in my baby photo album, I finally drifted off at sometime around 12. My last few thoughts were about cooking and how crazily our cabinets at church are set up. They open really oddly.
Well, here are some pictures of the Birthday celebration Sat.My little sister, Lillian, sat on my lap while I opened presents. This was a note from my brother, Elliott, which said 'I L♥ YOO'
He is such a sweetie.
Here I am giving him a hug. This is my favorite photo of all.
And this is the CAKE!!!!!! It's Nokama Metru, in a doll dress shaped cake! The cake pan that the
cake was baked in belonged to my mother when she was a little girl. Rothor has testified that it is VERY WRONG to put girl Bionicles in pink dresses. :P I think she looks fine, especially with the little rosette on her head. Oh, and the best thing about the cake was that my friends and me and my mom worked on it all together!!! It had all these different patches of patterns on it. Truly unique.
We also got bombarded by my brothers and Rothor. Terrible. They threw red plastic cups at us. With water in them. I have the honor of saying I started it. :P

And then this morning I woke up and to make a long story short, opened my present from my parents, as it is the custom of our house that the child opens their birthday present on their birthday.
I received my first and only MP3 player, which I actually ordered myself, thinking that I would receive it for Christmas. My mother let me find it because she didn't know much about them. I didn't either, but with some research I knew enough. Well, my mom was utterly shocked to see it just appear in the mail the other day, to spite I had said, 'Well, I ordered it.' about a zillion times.
I guess she decided that I should have a surprise for a Christmas present, because I pulled off the tissue paper and the tiniest little thing was sitting at the bottom, enclosed in all this plastic. From what I understand(not a techno genius here) it is a SanDisk sansa m250. But the main thing is that I can now carry my music with me. LITERALLY. I was absolutely obsessed with how CUTE AND TINY the thing is. Here is a picture.
It is actually only about 2 or 3 in. long, and only one inch wide and thick.


Voting closes at seven, please tell me what you think is the best version of the song, it will be here till the end of November, and I want it to be the best!! So far I only have two people who've answered, so please do!!!!!!!! Just tell me in a comment, or e-mail me if you know my address. One of the girls just told me in person. Thanks!

Oh, and by my brother's request, I will be leaving Caramell and Beethoven at the end of the list for a while. Him and my dad love those ones to much to let them go!! ;)

EDIT: Butterfly by and DDR won, but I just decided on the DDR version. No complaints here, but aren't you guys just a bit too GENERIC????? :P
Any way, here are the votes-
Butterfly-3 votes.
Hyper K remix-1
and my brother couldn't decide, so I think next time I do this, you can have multiple votes. Oh, well, enough of my rambling.

I finally took those pictures of my drawings.

Lewa Nuva-Toa of Air, carrying a stack of very odd-looking dishes. Just as a warning, he IS ABOUT TO DROP THOSE DISHES.
I used mainly Crayola pencils to color it, and an un-known brand of ink-pen. As you can see, I have a faded jeans obsession. Oh, and Lewa looking so Chibi-like is because I have always imagined him as kinda bouncy, cute, and ditsy. But that is just me.
Oh, and 'chibi' means small in Japanese, I think.

Tahu Nuva-As you can see, I didn't do very well on this drawing. First of all I never went over it after coloring it with white pencil. The reason I go over it is because it blends all the colors together. On Lewa, I did, but on Tahu I didn't. Second problem is Tahu is NOT my favorite Toa of all the Toa Nuva. Kopaka and Lewa are. Sadly, all my attempts to draw Kopaka have ended in failure.
The one highlight is the hand. It is a very nice hand. Ironically, it's holding a water bottle. And sadly, I forgot to take a close-up picture of it. I know, stop talking your ear off and MOVE ON.

Pohatu Nuva-This one is done after a picture of a real person. It is also my first effort at putting highlights of blond in somebody's hair. Sorry for the blurriness of the picture.

Gali Mistika-This one was a tone of fun. I focused mainly on making her look very un-feminine, and then added the annoyingly feminine pink tank top. For those that don't know, this is just Gali Nuva in a new form. So, for the drawing-I really enjoyed drawing the blood and sweat, and the muscle definition is my best yet. She's very rough-looking, correctly, like she is reading to win, and she WILL. The little wave on her arm is a marking signifying that she has power over water.
O.k., so I just wanted to say-
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
All those suggestions were wonderful, and the birthday wishes were great too. I think, though, I will get my inspiration from Longfellow. He has beautiful poetry, and as he calls the moon the 'Empress of the Night', I have no doubt I will at least find a name.
Oh, dear, so many things have been happening. Rothor has a new blog, my mom has a blog (please check it out and leave a comment- Timeless Trinkets. Don't feel shy because she's my mom, she doesn't mind a comment from you guys at all!) , my birthday coming, and my brothers making all those army noises.......Oh, wait, brothers do that all the time. LOL. ;)
I am...


P.S. I have a BIG surprise to show you all. I received it in the mail yesterday, and will tell you about it as soon as I can, which might be a few days.

MY BIRTHDAY IS TEN DAYS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!8D 8D 8D
Well, I finished another drawing a while back, it's Tahu. But my camera has quit working, so I don't have any pictures yet. I also finished Lewa and Pohatu, but I haven't done the background on Pohatu. Oh, and I did a version of Axxon and Brutaka, but it isn't very good, terrible inking, and I've only colored Axxon's jeans and T-shirt. *Loves jeans*
My brother also received the latest Bionicle comic book, but I am extremely unimpressed. Not to mention that Gali looks very un-feminine this year. I won't give away any further things. Gali's not new, you see, everybody knows about her, so it's O.K. for me to say that she looks terrible(Because I'm not giving away any future storyline). I have a permanent grudge against her.


Did I mention I'm also mad at the Bionicle story team?


Yeah, I know, I'm supposed to not be posting a really jittery and happy yet annoying post after such a presidential catastrophe. But, I wanted to vent my feelings about the comic, and let you know that Obama isn't REALLY in control. God is. I am a Reformed Presbyterian, and I believe in Christ, and I also believe that everything will be alright if we go on trusting in Him.

On to more Bionicle, :P Speaking of Tahu, could somebody please tell me why I keep typing his name 'Thau'? :P
When winter gets here, I am gonna change my blog to a winter theme, including the title, so don't freak out if some weird blog comes up for mine, because IT IS mine, with the name changed.
I was wondering, though, what name do you think I should give it? Please, don't be shy,I really need some suggestions. Anything winter themed, that is. Also, from Nov. 14-17th. I think I'll have my blog a bit different, to celebrate, but that will only be for a short time.
P.S. I will post the pictures soon, if my mom gives me permission to use her camera. :)

So, I was tagged by Madison almost a week ago and I never knew it!!! *Whacks herself with a Kohlii stick*

Type these on your blog
Type six things you have learned this year
Tag six different people
Go to their blog and tell them they have been tagged!

Well, six random things I've learned:

#1.That you should not get distracted while baking

#2. Everyone can lie. Everyone can lose their temper.

#3. Saying all the exceptionable but mean things about the knuckle-heads who work on the Bioncle story team won't make things change. Sulking won't help either. :P ( Did not like the last Bionicle Comic for this year.)

#4. God is always watching you.

#5. You can do some really stupid things when you act on your own judgment, but that's just because I'm extremely ditsy.

#6. God will take care of you, no matter what.

So, I tag..... Anyone that I can think of!!! I really don't know that many people on here. Oh, well, how about Nate, Shadow Strike, and Timeless Trinkets(my mom). I really don't know that many people who actually will pass this on, but considering that my brother(Shadow Strike ) knows a few people, he might. But I doubt it. He hates writing, and his blog is strictly Nerf.
