Long Life Update

Hello all!
I'm back!

So, I have a lot to tell you because I've done several interesting things in September!

Okay..where to begin...
All of a sudden my brain went blank....
Thanks for all of your input of what I should post more of!  I already have a DIY I'm gonna post soon! :)

So, during September, my family went out of town and at the hotel we went to there was a wedding ceremony taking place!  It was amazing and fun to watch! :D  You don't see that everyday.

I've recently started violin lessons!  It's super fun and it's definitely easier to learn person-to-person than on YouTube.  So far, I've done 4 lessons.  I've learned 2 songs ( 3 counting Twinkle Twinkle Little Star... :P ) a Polka and a Shetland jig.  I'm learning a classical piece now. :D

So, my dad and my three brothers went on a fishing trip with our friends.  We left at 9 a.m. and got to the place at 10:00ish.  We fished till 6ish.  In all that time, I only caught 3 fish.  ONLY THREE FISH!!!!!  The last time I went I caught about 9! Oh well. :P  After we finished fishing, we cooked the fish we caught and ate them for dinner! Yum!  I'll show you some pics.

We've been baking a lot lately and my mom bought a big cupcake pan thingy so I tested it out and made a chocolate cupcake with cookie dough frosting.

They were very rich, especially for eating a big cupcake.  I could only eat half and ate the other half later. :P
I also tested out a vanilla cupcake and added cloves and cardamom to it to make it Fall-ish.  I made a pumpkin cream cheese frosting to go with it.  It was still really rich.  The next time I make another kind it's gonna be angel food cake! :D

Today is my brother's birthday! :D  We are making donuts to bring to our youth group tonight, so I gotta go and help out!  

I will post the DIY soon! :D
