Drama fo yo Mama- Jordyn

29 Jan

Hello everyone! This is Jordyn. For my theater class, I got Marilla Cuthbert, the girl who adopts Anne. I didn’t get Anne because I am too tall. I have to be sensible, proper, and strict with a sharp, crisp tone. I am super excited because I got a lead role on my first show! ­čśÇ Raegan and I still haven’t found out a name for our sewing business. My goal is to buy a sewing machine before summer because I want to at least sew two dresses over the summer. The dresses I want to sew are from the Chronicles of Narnia. Anne of Green Gables and Narnia are my favorite books. Here are the dresses I want to make.

susannnnnnnn

I want to make this Susan dress for myself.

And this Lucy dress for Raegan. Raegan and I have always (yes, always) considered ourselves Susan and Lucy. And No I will not do the embroidery. Haven’t got that far yet. I am really excited and have been sketching down ideas and patterns. ┬áHere are some pics of just Susan and Lucy or Jordyn and Reagan…hehe

Just because I am in the Narnia mood…

Glamourous

That brutha got some skills!!

So, those are my summer projects! In March, our church is doing an invasion team to Chinle, AZ. Yep, the Wackers are going back to Arizona! Our family has also been into a YouTube channel called Studio C. They are Mormon but at least they are clean and funny! These are some of my favorites!

 

I think I’ve shown enough! That’s all for now, don’t forget to comment! ­čśť Don’t ask why I put the title. Just my me and my mom’s mind gone crazy. hehe.

“Sew” much fun!

Jordyn’s Blog:

My time with my cousins has come to an end. Sigh. I’ve had so much fun this week! One afternoon, I was eating lunch with my cousins and Kennedy got up randomly┬áand went into the kitchen. Confused, I turned around and there is Jazzy, their fat, black cat, crouching on the bar table and right in my face. Because I am allergic to cats and I don’t like cats, I scream and she bounces off my head and onto the table. I push her off while trying to pull myself back together. My heart was pounding, my cousins were laughing and Jazzy was giving me the oh-yeah-I-just-did-that-and-I-don’t-like-you-either look. That was an actual LOL moment. As for my sewing,┬áI am making Raegan a Lucy Narnia dress for her doll, and it is going very well. I got to pick out ┬ámy fabrics on Thursday.┬áRaegan and I are starting a sewing business, but we haven’t figured out a name yet. We┬ámade our first pattern on Thursday. We made headwraps; they look simple, but they are kinda complicated in a way. Here are some of the first ones we made:

Raegan made those two.

I made those four. The last one is reversible. OMG Jeremiah is a nut!

As for my theater class… my theater teacher is doing callbacks, which basically means ┬áshe will pick 2-4 girls for each leading role to come back and read more lines. Then that’s when “the decision” will be made. I have high hopes I will be called back. I got so nervous, I literally read the script five times every day! My friend Britney ,who auditioned for Rachel Lynde, has her mind set that I will get Anne, and I have my mind set she will get Rachel. She is such an amazing actress! I just know she will get the part she wants! I am also interested in violins. My friend from Bryan/College Station is shipping me her pink violin she doesn’t use. Can’t wait to start jamming on it! I already found someone on YouTube to teaches violin. Speaking of YouTube, I will be starting a YouTube channel soon. Well, hopefully soon. I have been so busy with sewing and theater I probably won’t have time until… I don’t know when *chuckles*. ┬áDon’t forget to comment! Cya later!

Meanwhile…

Hello, this is Jordyn, and this is my first post on my mom’s blog. My family┬áis in Arizona with two of my brothers friends. I had to stay with my Auntie Tat this whole week for an audition. I am in a theater class and we are doing Anne of Green Gables. I’m auditioning for Anne so I decided to stay. Madison, Raegan and Kennedy are in the same theater program as me, but just a different age group, and they are doing Alice in Wonderland. The theater teacher wanted me to help her direct the production, so I am excited for that! My cousins are in dance classes (ballet, tap, jazz etc.) so I am able to do classes with them. Yesterday I did ballet with my cousin Madison, and my legs are sore! Today, I am taking a jazz class with Madison.

Raegan makes me laugh!

I have also gotten into sewing. I have sewn arm warmers and a shawl and I am in the middle of sewing a purse. Raegan taught me how to sew last Friday.

Leaving Chinle, Day 4

12 Jan

We woke up early Monday morning to go site see at the Canyon before we headed out to Prescott. This wasn’t my first time seeing the Canyon, but my goodness, I’m always in awe of the beauty of God’s masterpiece.

Let me introduce to you a small glimpse of Canyon de Chelly in Chinle, AZ …

On the Road to Chinle, Day 3

12 Jan

January 10, 2016

Sunday was our final day in Chinle. Jeremiah preached at one of the baby churches in Kayenta, while the rest of us stayed in Chinle to hear their guest preacher from Alaska, Pastor Overson.

I wasn’t able to  take any pictures for that service because my smart phone wasn’t acting very smart.

The sermon was so simple yet so profound. It was on God’s love. Pastor Overson was on fire while he was preaching!  By looking at him, you wouldn’t think he’d bpreach like that,  by oh my word. ..he was anointed and passionate and all over the place! I was immensely blessed by his word. I heard the last 5-10 minutes of Pastor Aragon’s Sunday School and I was ready for the altar call!  Talk about rich ministry!  Oh!  And the Chinle choir did special music and TORE IT UP!

image

This is me, Claire, and Michelle from the Chinle church.

In between services we ate at a sister from the church’s house and she hooked us up with some home made fried chicken,  mashed potatoes,  broccoli salad,  homes made dinner rolls, and homemade apple & cherry pies! Are you drooling yet!?! I was so excited to eat I forgot to take a picture of my deliciousness. But I did get a picture of the fellowship.

The people on the right are from Pastor Overson’s church in Alaska.

After we fellowshipped, we were on the road again with Jeremiah to preach at a different baby church about an hour out in Fort Defiance. Claire did special music and Jeremiah preached his heart out.

After service we all went to a lady’s house to pray over it and eat some homemade Navajo Tacos! If you ever go to the Navajo Nation, you have to try them!  So so delish!

The older lady to the left and her husband would drive to the Chinle church for 10 years faithfully, until they finally opened the church their in  Fort Defiance! Whaaaaat!? I know, convicting! 

That’s it for now, but I’ll leave you with a picture of what we did today before we left Chinle.  It’s gonna take your breathe away…I promise. …

Tomorrow I’ll blog about today’s adventure. Cya then!  

On the Road to Chinle, Day 2

Saturday, January 9, 2016

This was my view when I woke up this morning.  To you, it may not mean much, but to me it was a reminder of where we’re at…Chinle, our home away from home!  Jeremiah had his first taste of our fellowship here when he was a crazy15 year old teenager, with his hair pulled back in a point tail wearing a purple bandana. (Yes, you read that right! ) Hold up, Wait! What am I talking about when he WAS crazy,  he still IS crazy!! There isn’t much here in Chinle, but we come every chance we get…and we never, ever regret it.

Today Pastor Artie took us and 5 folks from our Alaska church on a tour to Monument Valley,  Utah.  All of us except our 3 teenage boys, they went hunting with some other Rez guys. And from what I hear, they had a blast, which doesn’t surprise me one bit! 
Anyways, the drive to Monument Valley was about an hour and a half…not too bad.  Pastor Overson from Alaska showed us lots of pictures from there and told us some pretty cool stories, too.

When we finally got to Our destination, we were all blown away at what we saw…God’s amazing creation! I can’t even describe to you the detail in every single rock, every crevice,  or even the stories behind them. To know that God, in His awesomeness, spoke all of this into existence is mind blowing.  He spoke this into existence, who wouldn’t want to serve a God that could do that!?

I’ll show you what I mean…

Everything about these pictures are just absolutely beautiful.

I think it was about 20 degrees or so when we were there. Some areas were covered in snow, while others only had a few patches here and there. Then you had the areas where it was just plain ‘ol muddy! And you better believe it when I say the muddy parts seemed to be the most attractive to the kids when there wasn’t any snow around!  WHY???? Well, I guess they wouldn’t be kids If they didn’t purposely step on the mud,hu?

image

Here’s a pic of the 4 of us.  We were trying to look cute but man it was too cold and windy.  There was no time for cuteness, just hurry up and take the picture already! 

I love road trips,  especially with friends.  There’s just something about it that adds to the adventure. It gives the trip a little more meaning. I’m pretty sure when we’re back at home looking back on this weekend, we’re all gonna have a different experience or a story to share. But the one thing I’m sure we’re all gonna agree on is that our friendships got a little stronger, the memories that we’ve made will be unforgettable, and that we all experienced a touch of God in some way or another.

And that’s just from our time here in Chinle. We still have a whole week of conference to go to!

Stay tuned for Day 3…

On the Road to Chinle, Day 1

10 Jan

Yesterday at midnight our 13 person caravan took off for a 16 hour road trip to Chinle,AZ…yes, we are CRAZY! You would think that with  that many people, 3 of them kids, something would go wrong, but surprisingly enough everything went really well.  In my carload,  i was the only girl with with 5 guys. So you can imagine that there was a little bit of “strange fire” Up in there!  Lol  But for the most part,  they were gentlemen. 

image

Sometime around 3 am, I took over the driving.  The only way I was gonna be able to pull that off is if I listened to a book.  So I downloaded an audio book from Lynn Austin, God’s and Kings,the first book from her Chronicles of the Kings series,  which I highly recommend!  That book helped me stay wide awake for a good 3 hours…until out of nowhere I started seeing flying  dinosaurs! I was so tired I started seeing things!  Just close your eyes, and imagine me driving down a long, dark country road somewhere in the middle of Texas. I’m sitting there gripping the steering wheel, focused on the road, with an intense look on my face as I’m listening to the audio book, when all of a sudden, I look over because something catches my attention. I did a double take because that’s how convincing the image was, of a flying dinosaur!  It was a sight to see, that’s for sure!

image

image

Once we finally got out of Texas, which felt like FOR-EVER, the temperature dropped, the scenery was incredible, and the snow began to fall!  It was so beautiful, especially once we were a couple of hours from Chinle. The roads were a little more narrow, and that snow was coming down!

We finally made it to Chinle at about 5 pm yesterday, checked in the hotel and had a quick dinner with Pastor Artie and Sandra.
