Country Dancing Practice

The other day we had a dance practice for our upcoming Lowcountry Heritage Ball, so I thought I'd share some pictures.

"The Virginia Reel" 

My parents dancing "Postie's Jig"

More from "Postie's Jig" (I'm wearing the blue shirt).

More dancing.

Here is a video of "Mr. Beverage's Maggot"

This is going to be the second ball that we've done. I'm so glad we've been able to participate in country dancing -it's really fun!

Let them praise His name with dancing, making melody to Him with tambourine and lyre!
- Psalm 149:3

Starting My Garden

I've been getting an urge to garden lately so I've started some plants. I usually just try to grow things from the seeds in the produce we buy, so you can see a bit of our dinner history from whatever's on the windowsill. ;)

This is my lemon tree, isn't is cute?

This is my pomegranate plant...

and my apple tree.

This is my other apple tree I grew from a wee little seed a couple years ago.

I just recently braided the trunk because it was split up into three, which was my dad's idea. It's going to be interesting to see how it looks after growing some more.

This is my pineapple plant. They takes two years to produce a single pineapple, but I've been patient! :) This is the second year I've had it; so hopefully I'll be getting a pineapple soon. I've also got two itty bitty kiwi plants that didn't show up on my camera, and a red honeysuckle plant growing as well. I'd like to get some lavender and lemon balm. I got the book 1001 Natural Remedies from my grandma and almost everything involves lavender.

 (By the way, I really like this book :) 

Has anyone else started any gardening?

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
- Genesis 2:15

That's What Bilbo Baggins Hates!

I just saw "The Hobbit" a couple days ago and one of my favorite parts is when the dwarves are invading Bilbo's home, especially when they sing "That's What Bilbo Baggin's Hates". So I found a video of it. Enjoy!

Brilliant Blog Award

I was awarded by Daisy from Violets and Daisies

Blog Award Rules:

Answer the questions
Choose 5 blogs to receive the award
Let them know you've awarded them

Blog Award Questions: 
1. If you could have a "flower pen name" like we have here on our blog, Violets and Daisies what would it be?
2. What is your favourite ever Bible verse and why?
3. What are the blogs which inspire you most?
4. If you and your friends could visit any country in the world, where would you go?
5. If you have one, feel free to share your testimony as to how you became a Christian.

1. Hmm... a flower pen name... Can I chose Forget-me-not? ;)

2. As for my favorite Bible verse that's a hard one, but I do really like 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.
 "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

4. I would LOVE to go to Europe and I'm sure my friends would too. :D

5. I've grown up in a Christian home so I can't really think of a time that I didn't know Christ;, but I do think that in the past year I've taken a big step closer to God, and can really seen Him working in my life. It's been really neat for me as I've been reading my Bible more to see how God will have me read the same verse I was just thinking about or have my school work tie in with the Bible passage I had just read. :)

  Those I am choosing to award:
Miss Evelyn at Into the Western Wild
Miss Elizabeth Bennet at Elegance of Fashion
