how to water marble your nails

I love to do my nails!   So I figured that I would tell you how to water marble your nails .  I like to put vasoline on my fingers  and around the nail but NOT ON YOUR NAILS!! if you do the polish will not stick . If you don’t have vassoline then just put some tape around your finger and around your nail.  Now you can drop drops of paint in a bowl . Then shape the piant with a toothpick and make a design you like , but don’t take too long or it will dry and, will just not work . Here is a video:

North Carolina

So last month we where blest to go to a beach house in North Carolina !It was right on the sound and when I say that I mean that our back yard WAS the sound !(the sound is a beach that is really shallow and does not have any waves )

So you might be wondering “How?” .Well this pastor there ,inherited a beach house ,And instead of selling or renting it he thought it was a good idea to lend it to pastors or missionary’s who needed a vacation .

This vacation was so fun ! We had a fire on the beach and roasted marshmallows. What was so cool, was that if our hands where dirty we could just rinse them off in the ocean !

OK so I am not a fish person but I went clamming !(I did not eat the clams) Clamming like digging for fish you just sit in the sand and dig and when you find a shell that has not been opened yet… you found a clam! So guess  how many we found all together in one day (4 hours)….199 !!!!!!!  it was so fun to find free food !

This was us 4  years ago !!! i am the one in a choke hold ,luke is the one choking me (not really ,though ! ) and alexis is the one who is just smiling.

 

thistle is gone ;(

So on Monday Luke was outside and caught 2 lightning bugs ! And well he thought that he should feed them to thistle so he put  them in Thistle’s cage and then thistle ate  them ! It was sooooo…. cool but probably the biggest mistake I ever made !!!!!!!!!!!

The next day Alexis (http://thejewelscase.wordpress.com/) went up to feed her and noticed that her beard was BLACK (which means that she was mad )  Saddly I thought nothing about it ;(  then that night I went to the pet store to buy her some sand .

When I came we came home I ran up to my room and set down the sand and said ”Hey Thistle ! How you doing ? ” She she had her eyes half-open and half closed and that looked very wired . So I tapped the glass and she did not move I tapped it harder and she didn’t budge !! What was wrong ? I started crying immediately and was yelling ” THISTLE!  THISTLE !” she did not move I was sobbing like crazy ! I ran down stairs and said to my mom crying” Thistle wont wake up.” my mom hugged me then we all went up stairs to see . 

Yes , my dearest friend Thistle had died !!!!  lightning bugs are very  poisonous  ! Apparently if you feed your lizard 1 lighting bug it will die that hour ! thistle was very tough cuz she ate 2 and was alive a whole 24 hours !!
