I'm excited!!!

Me and Rogan are very excited for 'Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters' which is being released at the movies in September. I'm so excited!! I hope it is better than te first one like, from book to movie, type thing. :) And Tyson's in it! Tyson is soooooo cute! Gosh, I sound like Aphrodite talking to Percy in TTC. :)

This is the best trailer out of all of them!

"You weren't able to talk sense into him?"
Well, we kind of tried to kill each other in a duel to the death."
I see. You tried the diplomatic approach.” 
― Rick RiordanThe Sea of Monsters

“There was Tyson moving into the Poseidon cabin, giggling to himself every fifteen seconds and saying, "Percy is my brother?" like he'd just won the lottery.

Aw, Tyson," I'd say. "It's not that simple.” 
― Rick RiordanThe Sea of Monsters

“Weapons are allowed. Dirty tricks are expected. But try not to kill anybody!” Tantalus smiled at us like we were all naughty children. “Any killing will result in harsh punishment. No s’mores at the campfire for a week! Now ready your chariots!” 
― Rick RiordanThe Sea of Monsters

“Tyson dropped the two warriors he was about to tie into a knot and jogged after us. He jumped on the centaur's back.
'Dude!' the centaur groaned, almost buckling under Tyson's weight. 'Do the words "low-carb diet" mean anything to you?” 
― Rick RiordanThe Sea of Monsters

I AM VERY EXCITED!!! I'm up to book three in the five books, oh yeah and I'm going to go see 'Man of Steel' tomorrow with my two older sisters. We are having a 'sisters day out' and I'm hoping we'll have a lot of fun.

God Bless

What on earth have I been doing???????

I sort of just disappeared and to me, after blogging so consistently on here for the past few months it felt a little bit strange, but it was good anyway.
So what have I been doing? What has been happening?

Well reading is one of the things I have been doing. Okay and yeah, I've only been reading one series of books recently. In fact that picture of me you see above this is me finishing the second in the series. The series is 'The Percy Jackson and the Olympians'. Probably the thing that started us with reading these books was watching the movie based on the first book. And Anna-Lisa was the one who suggested watching it, and even showed me and Eden the trailer of it, when we went down for the Lady's night and Kitchen Tea. We didn't get around to watching it but Eden wanted to get it from the Video shop and we watched. I've seen it three times now. Gosh, that's a lot of times since just before the wedding. I've got to admit, i have never been a big fan of reading the Greek myths. Never.

The idea of Gods and Goddesses was just an idea which I seriously disagreed with, even if the stories are not true. The Gods were always selfish, 'all about them' type attitude. And that's an outsiders opinion, just so you know. The Percy Jackson series is good, entertaining, funny (Hades is really funny) and awesome (like who doesn't like the idea of a pen that turns into a sword?)

What else? Well, I've been listening to this really cool aduibook written by Gordon Korman. It's called Unsinkable and there are two other books after Unsinkable (which I finished today). So I want my brother to put the

nest book on Mum's I-Pod so I can listen to it! Daniels not dead!!!!! :D And I like Paddy, and Alfie. Sophie is alright and I don't like Julia very much at all!

Coughing, yep I've had a cough and runny nose and everything else that happens when you have a cold. And so yep, coughing still.

I watched MIB for the first time ever the other night. It was very entertaining and funny. 'I'm sorry, was that your auntie?' Best line! :D

Plotting out cast for a Rangers Apprentice movie if we (Eden, Saxon, Rogan, and I, and Mum a bit too) ever had the budget and the means to do it. It's alright you know we've got Christian Bale as Gilan, Benedict Cumberbatch as Keren, Christopher Lee as Tennyson, probably Robert Downey jr. as Halt, Jennifer Lawrence as Alyss, James Franco as Horace, Hugh Jackman as Erak,  Russel Crowe's Slagor, Richard Armitage is Svengal, Will Smith is Selethen and yeah you get the idea. We'll need like a six-hundred-million-dollar budget. Oh yeah, and we'll need some epic music? Who knows how much that'll cost! :D But it was very, very fun!

Portrait: He loves this book and I have to ding the rhyme to him over and over and over and .......
This was from another day when Mum was reading it to him but nevertheless he was very enraptured anyway. :) 
Reading aloud to my little borther Trahaearn yesterday. I even put him to sleep! We read it like six times! The Boy with a Drum, I mean and I coughed a bit as well Not to mention we had read a few books before that!
And yes, that's it! Besides school and stuff like that.

God Bless

Does that mean they are going to ruin it?

You know how you read this really good series of books and then you see what the summary on the back cover is and you think 'Please tell me they don't ruin it if they ruin it I will be so upset!' That was kind of my reaction when I saw this:

Okay, so this is the 12th and LAST book in the Ranger's Apprentice series. If you haven't read them then you're life is not complete. :P I've loved these books since like, I started to read and now they sound like they might completely tear the whole series and the things I love about it, apart. So traedgy strikes Will, does it? Halt's alive so it could only be Alyss, or maybe Horace or Evanlyn got knocked off, I hope it has Gilan in it. There was never enough Gilan in them.
This is from the 12th book. What have you been doing, Will?
And Halt is awesome, too. 
But let's look on the bright side, it's only about three months and then we'll find out, and its got Halt in it; Halt is hysterical and wise and awesome. But if they make it like at the end of Inheritance by Christopher Paolini.....well you get the idea.

God Bless

The Day They Said 'I Will'

Portrait: May your married life be full of laughter
And you will love each other forever after!

1,235 photos later, congratulations to the Newlyweds!

So it happened, it most certainly did.
Before the Wedding:

Portrait: Wedding booklets complete 
All ready toe the big day today
The Booklets 

Braedon got married to Anna-Lisa! It was amazing, it was wonderful, everything was great! It was was also very emotional and I cried more than once. :P
We all joke that Braedon is biting his nails with nervousness here. :)
So us bridesmaids and

Anna-Lisa arrived twenty minutes later than we had planned to, whoops, bet Bradeon was getting a little worried there. :P

 Anna-Lisa had sprayed some of the perfume she was wearing on our flowers and so they smelled lovely. Corbyn went down the aisle first as the ringbearer (I think he wanted to be Bilbo), then Arwen and Emmy, the two littlest flower-girls then Myffwyn all by herself, and Moran after her, both flower-girls. Then me! Wow! It was kind of scary, you know, but cool as well. I tried to smile and sort of did it but I was a little nervous. The swelling of the violin was amazing and beautiful and I think that was the start of me getting emotional. Nellie was walking down the aisle after me, Eden followed, then Autumn, then Chrissy, the Maid of Honour and than

Anna-Lisa and her Dad. :) The Groom, Best Man and Groomsman were all there as well.

We genuflected all at once. Mr. S. kissed Anna-Lisa and then gave the hand of hers that he had been holding to Braedon.

 It was one of the most beautiful masses I have ever been to. There was incense, and beautiful singing and everything

 just seemed wonderful. Bradeon and Anna-Lisa went through the Marriage Rights and when they were doing this I began to feel emotinal, for the second time. 

Just like in all the movies I had ever seen, except it was so much more important and wonderful.
The exchanging of rings. :)

When I went up to receive commumnion and after coming back and kneeling down to talk to Jesus I felt so happy! I prayed about Anna-Lisa and Braedon and my heart just felt so full of joy! After I finished and even during the Wedding, i had been looking at the Tabernacle adn thinking how Fr. Murphy had said that it takes three people to get married. Not two, but three. I just felt so very close to God. :)
Braedon adn Anna-Lisa signed the Marriage form thingie and than the Maid of Honour and Best Man did as well, and Fr. Murphy.

After that we received the final blessing and departed.
Anna-Lisa and Emmy after Mass

Mr. and Mrs. Onions and Mr. and Mrs. Onions. :P Us kids think this is hysterical

All of my family. Me on the end

Braedon, Anna-Lisa and her parents

Outside the church we had photos and stuff like that and then set off for the Botancial Gardens for more photos. :)

We were walking over to a place at the Gardens to take a photo and I sort of lost both my shoes and fell over, because they were high-heeled and the grass was very soft. That hadn't been the first time I lost my shoes either. The first time to fall over, though.

After that we went to the REception and had the usual stuff that you do at the Reception. I think I liked the actualy Wedding part though more. :)

Anna-Lisa and Braedon cut their cake which Mum had decorated and made the top of and then after that and everyone had finished eating they did their Bridal Dance.

Which was done very nicely indeed. :) All the speeches were very good. :) Braedon's started off with him doing the peace sign, i think it was, and then saying 'Peace' and then when not many people were doing it either he said 'Let's try that again: Peace.' :D Trust Braedon to reel the crowd. :)

So after they did their dance and then we did the Macarina and the Nut Bush, they left and everyone else pretty much left as well.
Portrait: Pretty hair style❤
This is Eden's hair from the wedding
It was a glorious day and full of many exciting things.....and we had an hour and a half car trip back home, too. :)

And thus ends my post. I could have captioned a lot of the photos but it was hard enough putting them in chronological order. Anyway, adios amigos!
p.s. apologies for any overlapping photos. I've just had enough of fixing them tonight. :)

God Bless
