Tis' the season to be jolly!

Tis' the season to be jolly, indeed! It seems like this has been the craziest holidays ever! I've been to several christmas parties this year. More than all other years combined! Here are some pictures from a Christmas partiesthe Shumate girls had.

We did a white elephant. Those are always so fun! Tim opened hand lotion, but someone else ended up with it.

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Mark 10:45

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

What an example! What would my life be like if I tried to serve insted of being served?

I Wanderd Lonely as a Cloud

To change the flow of things, I decided to post a poem insted of song lyrics. I've been reading a ton of poetry lately for school and have found a couple that I really like. So here's one of them and more to come later!

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

By William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Pip! She is our "new"(we got her a couple of weeks ago, I just didn't get a picture take quickly) gerbil. She is almost the opposite of Ella. She's sweet, quiet, and, well, adorable! This isn't a very good picture of her(Gerbils don't sit still for long:).

Sorry :(

I have like had little to no time on the computer lately because of school and getting ready for Christmas, but I had some more pieces of flair( I know that's like all I've posted recently, but I'll try to actually post more when the holidays are over).

I really like this one!

Tagged again!

Well, actually no one tagged me, but I tagged my self!

The Rules

1. Copy the questions and then answer them (post it on your blog remember).

2. Tag 4 people and let them know you have tagged them.

3. Let the person [who tagged you] know that you have done a post for the tag.

What are your nicknames?
Well, technically Aly is my nickname. My real name is Alysce.

What TV game show or reality show would you like to be on?
Survior(if it wasn't for the bad additudes and language) or Wipeout.

What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?
I don't think I've actually bought one myself.

What is your favourite scent?
Japanese Cherry Blosom

If you had one million dollars to spend only on yourself, what would you spend it on?
Wellllll, first I would by a big house in the country w/ stables, then get some horses and dogs, nice ones so I could show them.

What is one place you've visited, can't forget and want to go back to?
Disney!!! I went there w/ my family and the Cooks five years ago I think it was.

Do you trust easily?
I don't give away my trust freely, but when I trust someone, it takes a lot to shake it.

Do you generally think before your act, or act before you think?
A lot of both!

Is there anything that had made you unhappy these days?
The way people forget the real meaning of Christmas. It's more than just the presents.

What is your favorite fruit?
Ummmm, this one is hard. Well, pears are at the top of my list today, but check in tommorow.

What websites do you visit daily?
My e-mail and several blogs.

What is your favourite thing to wear?
My Panthers jersey (I'm wearing it right now!). It's so comforable.

Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?
Kinda, especially when they're mixed with marshmellows!

What items couldn't you be without during the day?
Books! I would die if I didn't have books.

What should you be doing right now?
Getting to bed :D Night!

I tag:
Emily E.
Now you have to tag at least one person. You can't just say "I tag anyone who whats to be tagged." It makes it a ton more fun if you personally tag someone. If all you're friends have been tagged, tag you mom and her friends. Just my opinion!

Btw, if you don't want me to tag you let me know. I'll understand if you don't!

A New Everything!

I didn't really like my old header and backround, so I changed it to a much more country girlish theme. Like it?

BTW, that picture was taken when we went back to Iowa this summer. There are a ton of corn cribs in Iowa. This one is my papa's, so we got to climb to the top and go inside it.

I know most of you have iPods, so here is a great podcast to go on it. It's called sheep laughs comedy. The begging is pretty cheesy, but as it goes on it gets really funny. It's clips for CD made by Christian comedians, so there's nothing bad at all! Enjoy!
