Bubbly Bubbly Bubbly!!!!! :D

Sooooo, haven't posted in ages, and I realized that my last post was kind of a drearyish one. I doubt anyone comes on here anymore anyway because I have basically stopped blogging, no intention of course, just been busy and my computer crashed. :-/ Sooooo, Brookie is BACCCCKKK for a few. :D

Christmas is almost here!!! who's excited??? :D what do y'all want for Christmas? I love Christmas time (: Sad part- it starts the beginning of a wonderful year coming to an end. :(

This year has been SSOOOOO much fun and so full of surprises!! Quick run-down:
January--Started the whole roller coaster ride year.
February-- Don't recall anything fun happening then lol.
March-- I started becoming super duper close with one of my now super duper duper close friends (: and I started viewing my life a lil different then what it has been.
April-- hmmmm, don't recall anything fun then either :P
May-- The start of the going down part on the roller coaster ride, just as all the fun begins :D We went to TX for Issy's wedding and I was able to visit all my wonderful TX friends (:
June-- We started going to a church which we now call ours, and we have met some really great people. (: Also went to Six Flags Great America for the first time :D
July-- Biggest thing in this month, Indian Creek Baptist Camp. So much fun, but so tiring lol. Made wonderful memories there with my Lil Sis and adopted her there too. (: Also helped in VBS for the first time (:
August-- Had personal problems then, but they all worked out in the end (: Also, my dad's birthday month, and the month I started 11th grade. Went to Six Flags Great America again.
September-- Sissy came and visited me for 3 days and she came to find out that Indiana is the place God is calling her to move too, so come March she will be much closer to me!!!! (:
October-- What a great month! Went on our family's annual color tour trip and also..... turned 16!! :D Started wearing contacts then too (:
November-- Thanksgiving :D and the Lions lost, so, not a good day then :P
And now, December-- Great month already :D Can't wait to see what's in store for me next year. I kinda hope that it will be a roller coaster ride too, but, maybe less drama then lol. All in all- best year for me :D

Ok, so now that my year run-down is over, what did y'all do this year that was exciting? Was it a roller coaster ride for you too? I hope so :D

Over the course of the year, I have kinda drifted from God which pains me greatly to say. But, His mercy never ends, and now I'm back in His loving arms. Praise God for His wonderful mercy towards us all!!! He's great and worthy of our praise. :D

And now for a lil more serious stuff- I have a request to make. Will y'all please pray for a super close friend of me? I'm not giving any names out or any description. Just a friend of mine. This friend needs urgent prayer concerning salvation. There are about 3 people talking to this friend and I do believe that God can save this person.... God can do anything but fail. If God can make heaven and earth and all that is in them, then the Lord can easily save this person. I have faith that He will. Just please pray for my friend's heart to soften and accept Christ. This means ALOT to me!! thank you (:

Now, lets seeeeee............ I can't think of anything more to say. :-/ Bubbly Brookie should go now.

Thanks for listening to my rambling :P And if/when you get the chance, please check out my photography page: http://remembrancefotos.blogspot.com/ or like it on facebook!

Sweet Sister Memories.... (:

I miss my "sisters". All of them. Even if one of them was just here, and one of them lives a few minutes away from me. I still miss them. I love all you girls so much....




I miss my big sister, Rebekah. She was just here, but I still miss her. We had so much great memories in the short times that we have been together. I know we didn’t sing much together, but when we did, you had the bestest voice I’ve ever heard….. girl. :P I love all our inside jokes which make me laugh everytime I think about them. I miss how we would have a pillow fight and you’d end up winning. I miss our photo shoot that we did… jumping and playing and running and dancing on the playground. I miss you, Sissy.









I Miss my Lil Sis, Jadyn, even though I see her every week. I wish we could spend every day together, and be real sisters. I love our Indian Creek camp memories and inside jokes from then. I love how you make me laugh everytime I see you. I love how you doodle on my church notes and make me re-write them so you can doodle on them some more. I love how you jump on me and catch me off guard, but never fails, I will always catch you. You’re my lil sis and I love you dearly… my lil bombardier beetle.




I miss my “twin”, best friends since forever…. I miss how we could just spend hours talking about everything and not have a worry in the world. I miss how we would stay up til 3 in the morning whenever we stayed at each other’s houses. I miss how when we sang, it was so serious to us, and how we would make our songs meaningful. I miss how when we did sing, our voices matched, to make one perfect voice. I miss you, Krista.



And last but not least.... I miss my lil Hannah Banana. How music was so important to us too. I miss how I could just pick a random song to play on the piano, and you could match every note on your violin. I loved how our voices blended perfectly too, how I would sing soprano, and you’d take up alto, with your angelic voice. We made such great music. And I miss our silly little girl games that I would trade anything in the world for if we could play them right now. I miss how we played dress up and had our photo shoot and felt like princesses. I miss you, Hannah.

Another Girl Outing (:

Howdy! :D miss me?? 'course you did ;) :P Anyway, yesterday afternoon the Barrett girls stole me once again (: they came to my house around 4:45ish and picked me up to go visit Alyssa and Leanna up at Camp Joy where they are working. We left Camp Joy around 9ish and I stayed the night with the Barretts and Jadyn and her friend, Becca. We had a blast going to and from Camp Joy. Jadyn is such a character! She kept rapping different things.... our names. :P One of the first times she rapped my name she spelt it Broke. :P Alot of laughter and giggles last night. When we got to the house after Camp Joy we watched "scary" movies lol. The first we watched was Red Eye which is actually a really awesome suspensful movie... not scary. And then we watched Signs- a dumb "creepy" movie. I didn't really care for it. There were some scenes that were scary. Becca, Jadyn, and I curled up on the couch for Signs and one of them screamed during one part. the best thing about this movie night was that we slept in the basement. :D:D anyway, today I came back home but this morning I helped the Barretts with their garage sale. Jadyn and I had a blast going through clothes. I actually got a couple new skirts for free. (: Been in desperate need of them lol. Anyway, enough of my babbling- here's the pics. enjoy :D


Jadyn told me to wear the hat, fuzzy green flipflops, and to hold the skateboard and pose for a pic. :P Here's the result lol.



Guess whoooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ninja girl... ;)


Last night before movies. Jadyn wanted me to get a pic of her jumping off the couch. the best pic right here :P I told her she kinda looked like a ghost :P


That's Jadyn for ya


Again :P


Jadyn and Olivia before Red Eye and Signs


Acting creepy :P


The place where we slept. I got the couch on the far right, Becca slept on the floor, Laura left during the night, Olivia got the couch on the left, and Jadyn got the chair behind me (you can't see)


Jadyn hyped up on sugar (Dr. Pepper :P)


eating/drinking the mild hot sauce from Taco Bell.

That be all! not much- I know. Hoped you liked tho :D
