It is hard to believe that we’ve been blogging for two years! In honor of the occasion, we have put together a sampling of the 421 posts we have published 😀 :
-Here is our very first post…when we all went by “cowgirl names” instead of our real names 😀
-We shortly found out, after starting our blog, that we were ALL about to get chicken pox (none of us had ever had it before)! Leah and Jessica had said just the month before, “Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to go anywhere, or do anything, and just get to stay home???” Well, they got their wish! Besides the itching–it was a dream come true 😀 A tip to any who may go through chicken pox anytime soon: Cream cheese on Town House crackers, an unlimited supply (okay, almost!) of peppermint ice cream, and MOVIES are all things to help you endure it! ESPECIALLY the movies, because it gets your mind off of the itching! We’d finish one movie, take a break (to eat some crackers!), and then suddenly we were noticing the itching again…”Hurry! Let’s go watch another movie!” Here’s another post, where you can see pictures of what we looked like during chicken pox :O 😀
-Just a few months after getting chicken pox, we had to try out the whooping cough, too!
-And do you know that this week will be our FIFTIETH Seven Sisters Treasures?! Here’s a link to the first one 😀
Also in honor of our blogoversary, we’ve written a short story with links sprinkled heavily throughout of a sampling of different posts we’ve written in the past few years 😀
In Which We Tell a Story
(strange name for a story, but never mind!)
“One day we were Driving Down a Country Road…and we saw this Funny Old Man picking One Hundred and Seventy-Five Pounds of Strawberries!!! We stopped and asked him how he should recommend transporting animals to The County Fair when you have no trailer. The idea he gave us was not a good one, and we decided that this cannot end well. So we abandonded that idea, came up with a crazier idea…and completed our goal, though we had no time for anything else . The only problem being, we ended up being chased by a dog and trampled by some goats (okay, not quite so bad!).
After having recovered physically and mentally from the shock caused by said dog and goats, we took A Garden Tour, enjoying this lovely Honeysuckle Summer, but very much looking forward to autumn..oh yes, autumn!
The price of gasoline, being what it is these days, motivated us into Going Green. After all, we had no electricity and no water anyways, so why not?! While we were at it, we decided we may as well go Gluten Free, too. But Fret Not, it isn’t as bad as it sounds!
We took a trip to the Creation Museum, and loved it! At about the same time, we visited the State Fair for the first time, which was also lots of fun 😀 We had just about decided that life was like a Peach Smoothie Adventure!
We gained a new brother and sister last December and we were all relieved that they are not like our other brothers and sisters, who put Yarn in the Clothes Dryer and put toilet paper in the bathroom sink! Okay, that’s silly…we thought no such thing when we met our new brother and sister, but you have to find some crazy way to get all these posts in here!!!
Everyone knows how fun it is to get all dressed up and Deck the Halls and also the Christmas Tree–not to mention going sledding with friends and going on a Treasure Hunt looking for Farmgirl Treasures! Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow!!! And throw in an ice storm for good measure!
This badly written story, will, we guarantee you, NOT win any prizes at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, or anywhere else…but no matter–we’ll say that Fred wrote it and everyone will be impressed. Funny thing!
Yes, we know, the Crown Plaza Hotel does not hand out prizes for writing, so please do not send any of your writings to them in hope of getting one. We’re afraid they won’t even edit it for you.
We’d love to hear from those of you who have been witnessing these past two years of our blog…or perhaps you’ve only recently found us, but no matter–how did you find us and when? And what is one of your favorite posts (if you can remember and so wish to tell us!)
