Since my last update, which was way back in 2012, a lot of things have changed.
- I'm older (surprising, I know)
- I'm a little bit taller.
- I have nine siblings (the newest is due this September)
- I moved halfway across the country
- I own four pigeons
- I've taken up historical sewing (and hopefully historical reenactment one of these days)
- I love English Country Dancing
- And a whole lot more, which is what I'm here to talk about.
If you're still interested in following me- my adventures, my trials, my thoughts- I just started a brand new blog. Okay, okay, I haven't posted on it yet, but I plan to soon. My general goal for The Elliot Countenance is not entirely to present you with a day-to-day updates on local happening like Daughter of the King was, but to post on things such as:
-An occasional short story
-Why I write
-Christian fiction- how we can improve it and how it can make an impact
-What projects I'm working on (everything from novels to Edwardian evening gowns to piano pieces)
-My life happenings in general
So, if you're interested, head on over to The Elliot Countenance and say hello! I'd love to see you there.

Today we got two lovely little Holland Lop rabbits. Their names are Camy and Splash. Camy is mine and Splash is Hallee's. We love them so much! They are both girls. Here are some pictures.
Camy is a little less cuddly than Splash but she is good at posing! The bunnies really are very small and in these pictures look a lot bigger than they really are.

Last Monday me, my Dad, Hallee, Aleyna and Alexis all went ice fishing. You may understand why we didn't bring Georgia....Ice and George just don't mix well, at all.
Anyway sorry I didn't get any pictures of us fishing, I was so busy fishing I forgot.
I caught 3 fish but had to put one back, because he was tiny.
Hallee caught 3 but had to put one back too. She got TONS of tugs.
Aleyna got 1. It was one of the biggest.
Alexis got 2, but my dad got them for her.
After she got her fish Lexi walked around hugging it and saying " I love you fishy " wish I got a picture of that!
When we were cleaning the fish Lexi said " I want to cut out his eyes! " I nearly died laughing. But finally she came to the conclusion that she needed a knife that was sharper than a butter knife.
The whole time we were cleaning the fish my Mom made sure to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible. But I must say... it was a little gross when I cut one of the fishes eyes out for Lexi and all the fluid went everywhere...
We had a great time!
