I'm Back!

Yep, here I am! Narthea and I had a field day today taking pictures and I thought I'd share them with you... but first an "update": Daddy isn't doing a whole lot better, but mommy said he definitely was seeming more attentive this morning and he could move his eyes upwards! Yay! He hasn't been able to do that since last Monday. Saturday Me-ma and Narthea went up in the morning to see dad at the Hospital, while Esara, Caldirwen and I stayed at her house with Pa-pa. Earlier that morning the couple Mr. and Mrs. C2 came and said mom could go home and do some things while they "watched/took care of" dad. Mom went home and did those "few things", then after a couple of hours (after Me-ma and Narthea had left) came and picked up Esara, Caldirwen and I. We had a lovely ride up to the Hospital with mom. It was really nice just to get to talk to her. I haven't had that in a while, so I really enjoyed it. :) Well, Saturday daddy wasn't as chipper as he was on Thursday night. Yikes! He kept getting frustrated with me because I couldn't understand him. Mom and everyone else had left the room and gone to get a drink right down the hall and I stayed with dad. He wanted something that was somewhere in the room and I couldn't understand him and I could tell it really, really frustrated him. Thankfully Caldirwen came in the room and I got her to go get mom. This morning we went to church with Me-ma and Pa-pa at their church, then after eating lunch with them, we took the pictures in this post- and more- and then Me-ma brought us back home. Narthea and I did our barn chores and then came inside to relax. Nana is at our house now and she is staying the night with us. Exciting news: Narthea and I get to spend a few days at home... alone... all by ourselves!!! Mrs. K is coming to get Esara and Caldirwen tomorrow (Monday) to keep them a few days, since mom and dad won't be back home 'til later this week and I decided I would stay home with Narthea. Well, that's the latest update. Here are those pictures we took this afternoon with Narthea's new, very expensive digital camera:

NOTE: Narthea took the following pictures of my "photo shoot"...

The following pics are out in Me-ma and Pa-pa's woods behind their house.

Yep... my new profile pic ;)

Narthea and I spotted an old, old red truck way out there and decided we could get some really vintage-y lookin' pics with it...

"Anyone in there?..." (hope not!)

NOTE: I (Eldarwen) took the following pictures of Narthea's photo shoot:

Back on the bridge:

This is my purity ring:
A purity ring is a symbol of a promise I made between me, my dad and God. I have pledged to keep my heart, soul, mind and body pure for my future husband. :)

1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

Taylor said...

Cool pictures! But I noticed that you were wearing a PINK shirt! *gasp* LOL

Eldarwen said...

Thank you! :) We had so much fun with the red truck. We took hundreds of pictures! =)

Thank you! =)

You caught me! Yes, I was wearing a pink shirt. It looked good in the woods and with the red truck. Plus, I forgot to bring my *purple* (let me stress that... *purple*) shirt that goes with the skirt I'm wearing, so I had to compromise. LOL =D


***Emily*** said...

Welcome back! I must say that I like your shoes... hehe. They look very cute. Thanks for posting photos!

In Christ,

Eldarwen said...

Thanks, Emily! :) I love those shoes, too. When I bought them a couple years ago I was really into Nancy Drew and they kind of reminded me of some shoes she might have worn. :) That's why I bought them... and because they're cute! lol =) You're welcome! {hugs}
