so as all of you have noticed.. I have not been doing very much blogging lately.. sorry about that. I really need to gain back my reputation as a blogger! Just a quick update about me and my life to this day.. I have started to get really really exited about Christmas recently.. yeah. I am pretty stoked. Only.. oh my days... only 96 sleeps 8 hours and 41 minutes left! I am also getting SO excited for our church's youth conference Consumed! ( It's going to be so amazing =) ALSO.. my blood is at a very healthy state right now. Yesterday I got my Tetnis booster shot along with 2 other things mixed in there. I was sooo nervous about getting it.. I hate shots.. ew. I hate them. Anyway.. school is going fabulously. I love just getting back in the swing of things, although if I could, I would minimize the time spent with those dumb boys ;) Other than that life is pretty fine. Got back from camp a couple of weeks ago.. it was so amazing. God did such phenomenal things in the lives of all the youth there, and it was amazing to see him working in them. He stretched me, challenged me, and I'm so happy he did!

I love how the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. I absolutely love waking up and it is dark and raining. I just love fall.. and winter. Oh I cannot wait until it snows! It wont be too long.. and we'll have a snowday. Oh yeah.. one drawback from being in the new school.. less snowdays! (Although we only had 1 last year in Merville, we still had better chances of missing out on the wonderful thing we call school) I should be getting back to the world of facebook! hopefully talk to you soon!

Recent News

OUR SCHOOL FINALLY MOVED! On Friday we packed up, and on Monday we started school at what used to be Comox Elementary School. It's such an amazing blessing that we are in town and have a lot more space than we used to have. It was awesome how fast it happened too. I think we found out a week? before we moved that we could move. It's so awesome!

Yesterday our cousins, aunt and uncle came over and they are going to stay at our house this weekend for my Grandma's birthday! It's today and she is officially considered a senior citizen. I love my Grandma. She is so phenomenal, and an amazing cook. I could go on and on about how much I love her and everything she does for me and our family. She got this musical card for mother's day from our cousins and the song went like this, "Grandma is kisses, Grandma is kind, when I act silly, she doesn't mind. Grandma is love, Grandma is hugs, she makes me smile bright as the sun...being with her is my favourite treat" or something along those lines. I can't really remember all the words, but that song kind of summarizes a section of what my Grandma is, except she is SO much more than what is written/sung in the card. She is an awesome example of a woman with a heart that is so dedicated to God and serving him. She is a grandma to everyone in the church if you know her well or not! I just love her! I remember when I was younger, she would get Papa to be the one who gave us most of the candy, because she was "Good Food Grandma" ahahahaha it makes me laugh :D

I can't believe that it is already JUNE! Seriously, it seems like yesterday we were just arriving at Homewood for the youth retreat in January! Wowzers! Anyway.. in 2 months minus one day it will be my 14th birthday! WOO! I am so stoked for summer. One of the things I love about summer, is that you can stay up really late, and it doesn't matter if you wake up at noon the next day. Another thing is that every night you can be scheming for a sleepover, instead of just the two given days on the weekend. There's also, camp, camping, birthday, youth events, vacation, no homework, it's hot. Oh my gosh! I just love summer!

Another amazing thing I could not, not blog about is MY FUTURE NEICE OR NEPHEW IS ON THE WAY!! I couldn't be more happy for my older "brother and sister" Jason and Kelsey. All day today and last night I have been thinking about it and I can't even believe it. I have been waiting years for the next 9 months. Congratulations Jason and Kelsey, I love you guys!

Oh Happy Day, Happy Day!

Today I got to sleep in, yay for Saturdays! Once I woke up, I went and I looked at some old photo albums and went for a stroll down memory lane. I love doing that. Then I went and I had some Shreddies. MMMMM! Then once I was done breakfast, I went and did a little homework. I just was playing around with Emerson's camera, and was about to take a picture of my Papa sleeping, when Hudson blurted out, "Are you allowed to be using that?" I am, by the way.. just to make that clear. And suddenly my Papa woke up.. fantastic. I quickly bolted behind a wall. ooooh. oh never mind. He is nodding. I was thinking about running upstairs to grab the camera agin. but I wont'.. not right now anyways. This afternoon I don't really have any plans unless Mik calls me and asks me to do something (we were talking about this earlier) tonight is CHURCH! I absolutely LOVE having a night service. I don't know why.. I think it is just the fact that I can go to church without thinking about waking up early the next morning to go to school. Tomorrow I can go on FACEBOOK!! I haven't been on facebook in 6 days. I am so proud of myself. It was definatly a challenge. I started fasting it last Sunday, because I felt that God was telling me that I was going on it WAY too much and wasn't spending enough time with him. And tomorrow I am going to set some standards for facebook so that I do get the time I need with God. I really want to make God a higher priority than facebook. I gotta jet (hahah Mik, "You bought a jet???") As Tiger says, TTFN! (Ta Ta For Now!)

Well.. spring is defiantly here! It is currently 8:44 and it is still light out!! We have kind of past the "rain stage" of spring and are now moving into the warmer weather. I am stoked. This afternoon I just spent some time reading on my grandparents deck in the sun on a bench/swing. It was glorious. I might even be able to do that when I go back there if it isn't too cold. I can't wait!! The summer schedule is up on the church's website! I can't wait til June.. and July.. and MOST OF ALL... AUGUST! The month of my birth. wooooo! I can't wait. Fun Fun FUn. that's basically summer all SUMMed up lol. I love summer! No homework... no school.. campfires.. camping... vacation.. birthday... youth practically EVERY night! Yeah. That's how I am doing. :D


Just an update on what has been going on lately.. well.. this week we have been staying at our grandparents house because our parents are at the leaders conference at CITY BIBLE CHURCH!! Oooh. I gotta go.. will talk more later.

Lately we have been taking a break in science and talking about the flaws and cons of evolution. We have also been learning a lot about creationism too. One thing that I found ABSOLUTELY amazing.. was one point that Dr. Hovind said in a video was.. Universe: One-verse (sentence) "Let there be." If you are an evolustionist this should change your beliefs automatically! It is so straight forward. I love it.. 13 days until I am in the Disneyland park people!! I am so excited. I can't wait for all of my dreams to come true even more than they already have.. (I have heard that happens in Disneyland :D) This will be my 3rd time going.. but the first time I went I was 4.. and the second time I went I only went for a day. So basically... this is going to be my first REAL DEAL Disneyland visit. I will actually be able to experience it to the fullest and remember it all :D I should go I have to have dinner!

OK. I have no idea why my writing is underlined.. ok but whatever. So. This is a picture of laminin. So you are all thinking right now "Ok Mercedes... cool?" I AM getting to the point! A few months ago I watched a sermon on video by Louis Giglio in class and at youth. This guy had my attention the whole way through this sermon! He brought up AMAZING facts that glorified God SO much. It made God look REALLY big.. the way he really is. I really suggest that you take a look at it. It's called "How great is our God" by Louis Giglio. Ok.. so you are still probably wondering.. "Ok.. so what's laminin?" AH! This is so cool. I love it. So what you see above is a picture of laminin. In the sermon Mr. Giglio goes off about how he really needed a big finish for his sermon. So he started talking about how he had talked to a scientific person who I don't really know the title of! And he told Mr. Giglio about laminin. He started saying how laminin was what held our bodies together, like the wire or metal pipe or whatever you use in a cement structure. ISN'T THAT AMAZING?! Our whole lives (not to mention all the billions of people who have lived and died before us) we have been held together with millions and millions of little CROSSES?! I think that is just TOO COOL!! Oh I love it. Salvation message right here! hahaha so yeah.. I really think you should check out that video.
