Here is a photo story I made a while back and have wanted to post and am just getting around to:) I know the quality isn’t that good, but I feel bad that I haven’t done a lot of posting. I will soon be starting my Christmas segment on this blog so look for that soon.
We had just finished shooting the last part of Camp Summer. WHOO!! Bethany and I walked in the door of our house, only then did I notice how messy we had made it.
“FAMILY MEETING, NOW!” I called in my strictest voice.
Once everyone had clambered into the living room, I announced, “Guys, the house is a wreck. Mom will ground us for a year if she sees it. That is why I’ve come up with a plan!”
“This is our new chore chart, if everyone does three chores every day the house will be super clean.”
“Bethany, you have to make dinner and clean the house. Jessica, you need to take out the dogs, do the yard work, and set the table. Nikki, you need to vacuum, make lunch and do laundry. I will take out the trash, fold laundry, and wash the dishes. I suggest everyone start their chores,” after that I dismissed the meeting.
I guess I’d better start my chores so I will be done.
My first chore, to sort all of the laundry.
It was a lot of work, considering it hadn’t been fully cleaned and sorted since July!
“Wow! When was the last time this was washed?”
“Nikki! Here is the dirty laundry. Please do it tonight, we need some stuff in there for tomorrow.” I commanded her.
“Okay,” she replied not paying attention.
“Nikki, listen to me!”
“Huh, oh sorry! After having to play a boy in Camp Summer, I really need a break. Girls night!” she replied.
Okay, I’d better start on this laundry.
(Some of the pictures were deleted sorry)
Any way, since someone *coughs*
Bailey deleted the footage the next picture we have is from this morning.
“OH NO! It’s already 7:30,” I yelled.
I have to make breakfast.
“Everyone get up! It’s 7:45 we’re gonna be late!”
“Take some food and run.” Jessica hollered.
10 minuets later….
“Wait just a second, those aren’t the clothes mom picked out! Jessica, go change.” Bethany yelled to me.
“UGH! Fine. I will go change.” I replied.
When I walked into our bedroom I found Bailey sound asleep.
“BAILEY! You are still asleep. We have to leave in fifteen minuets!” I yelled.
*mumbles* “Fifteen minuets could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance….”
I know it was mean, but in order to wake her up I slapped her. She obviously was hallucinating…
“OWWW! Wait, we have to leave in fifteen minuets! My hair is going to take like twenty! I’d better go.” She said rushing.
She rushed by me and finished her hair in record time.
“Where are my clothes?” Bailey asked, extremely annoyed.
From the hall I heard Nikki demand, “Bethany, how are you almost ready?”
“Nikki, I’ve been doing it for a while, it’s called planning ahead,” she replied.
“Hey, Bailey, have you seen my hair ties?” I asked.
I was done with my hair. Now all that had to be packed was my backpack. Then I could leave.
“There it is!”
I’m so glad it’s not my job to clean up this mess, I thought.
Okie-dokie, all done and ready to leave.
And with that I claimed first prize and headed out the door.
Jessica’s POV again
What is up with my bed? Mom will kill me if she sees it like this!
I still have some homework to do, I need to make my bed, and pack my school bag, I’ll NEVER finish!
This was what everyone was doing at 8:09 this morning. School starts at 8:30 but the bus leaves at 8:15 and it takes ten minuets to walk to school. We were in pretty big trouble!
Bed made, check.
Bag packed? Homework done? Check! Let’s leave.
“Bye everyone! I’ll see you at school, ” I yelled.
I wasn’t in first, but I had still beat the race against time with four minuets to spare!
At least she was ready for the day…….
Let’s get these dishes done and get my contacts in!
I breathed a sigh of relief, it was only 8:15. I would make it to school on time and with that I hurried out the door.
“Hi everyone! So, all my sisters are gone and I’m still here. It’s 8:20, school starts in ten minuets. I’m never going to live this down…”
“Why did I make such a big mess last night?!” I thought as I began to pick up what was left of my “girl’s night”
Our room was clean! Now for my ratty bed head.
I hastily attempted to style my hair.
Finally, I rushed out the door, at 8:25 am.
I arrived five minuets late to school and was tardy, but otherwise our morning shenanigans were a success. Mom was pleased with how clean the house was and we got the photo shoot in. Here are some pictures from that:
I hope you have a wonderful rest of your Thanksgiving break! Tell me what you think in the comments:)
