Hey Everyone! I haven't been on my blog in a long time so I am SO sorry! I'm sure you can all relate to the Christmas season being the busiest of all. Well I think it's safe to say that it was the busiest year for us. We did so many things. It was very fun, but after a while I got pretty tired. It began Thurs. when we went o the movie theater with our family friend Trevor! He is super fun and we will miss him when he has to go back to train to be in the air force. After Thursday, we just ended up going to bed at 12:00 for the next 4 days! Now finally, I have some time to write on my blog. Do you ever have it were you start a post and then go off to help someone and come back and the tab you minimized is gone? Well, that happens to me almost every time I start a post! Sorry, That was a little random well, anyways here are a few pictures.......
~These three Pictures are all edited by my cousin Ella~
Ella is SO pretty
I absolutely love this picture
Guess what? I got my camera!!!! I am so excited to use it!
Usually we go up north to a cabin my Grandpa owns, and pick a tree out there. But this time, since it got to snowy to fast we didn't have time. So instead I got to enjoy my first time Christmas tree shopping!
Since the trees Up North (were we usually go Christmas tree shopping) are not grown to be perfect trees, we were surprised at how well this one stood up. Usually our tree is always falling down...actually, I don't think there's ever been a time were it hasn't :( Here is a adventure story of how last years tree turned out......
Lindsay, Callie, and mom were hanging up Christmas Ornaments. Mom was up on the rafters with a ladder, and Callie was hanging up ornaments on one side while Lindsay handed them to her.
Mom: "Doesn't the tree look beautiful?"
Callie: "Mmmhmm Lindsay could you hand me that ornament?"
Lindsay: Sure, which one?"
Callie: "Either one, I don't care."
Lindsay: "Here you go."
Right as Callie started to reach up to put the ornament on the tree she realized the tree was moving. She said....
Callie: "Hey mom, I think the tree is falling?"
Mom: "What do you mean........ (the tree starts tilting right towards Callie)........It's not falling."
Hannah, Dad, and Sophia were down stairs I jumped off the ladder and mom was just about to fall when dad came up and ran to the rescue!!!! It took us three hours to set the tree up just right after that. Thankfully it never fell when all the ornaments were on, and only a few ornaments were damaged. We were so thankful when it was finally all over.
This our tree this year how does it look? It was actually a pretty easy tree to put the lights on. The only problem was getting all the ornaments on. The ornaments were a little to heavy for that. I think this might be my favorite Christmas tree we've ever had.
How was my story? Did you like it? Should I become a writer? I wonder how far I'd get? Joking!!!!!! Don't forget to comment about my contest!
Hey Everybody! Today we got snowed in. We got at least 4in. of snow! Can you believe it? I would like to post about my sweet kitten Moses. Moses is a really loving cat....a little to loving sometimes. For some reason he always wants to be around us. He is constantly looking in our window and pawing at the door (now tell me, isn't that only a dog thing? Just a few minutes ago he was looking in at us from the window, the only difference was that it is freezing cold and snowing like nuts. He still wanted to just look at us though. After a while he decided to go under the tarp on our back porch. He is still there...I think. He is still so goofy, and sometimes a little stupid. But my whole family just fell in love with him.
Hey everyone, it's winter here! We have about six inches of snow on the ground. I am so excited to be able to play in the snow again! First of all....I would like to congratulate Carlotta for winning the photo challenge. You did an awesome job, I have to say so myself. Second of all, I think I'm gonna do a contest. How does that sound with you? I've been making these really awesome bracelets, but you'll have to find out what they look like once I am final about a contest. I would probably do it after Christmas that way I won't feel pressured to post anything. Third of all, I believe that if someone didn't create hot chocolate than all of us would be dead...especially me. Today I was drinking the perfect cup of homemade peppermint hot chocolate with frothy marshmallows....it was super good. Some of the small things in life can make such a big difference, like this morning I saw the most beautiful sun-rise I have ever seen. It wasn't the kind with a bunch of red clouds or purple sky, it was just a giant florescent orange ball. I was standing in awe for a few minutes just starring at it. It reminded me of how God is so good and gracious to everyone. Can you believe that he made the sun look like that? Here is a picture of that awesome hot chocolate I was just talking about. Merry Christmas!
It truly was a perfect cup of cocoa
Please comment telling me what you think about the contest!
Here is my Picture for Louis's photo challenge...... The challenge is to take a picture of a place you love....and I love Port Washington! Have any of you ever been there? We go there to fish. We don't catch that many but it is still fun to run around on the rocks. The rocks there are absolutely huge there, they are about 5 feet wide and 6 feet tall. If you haven't been there you really should go. I hope you all enter Louis's photo challenge!
Please don't remind me that I haven't been on here for over 10 days.....maybe even over 15 days. All of my dad's family were in town so I had absolutely no time to post anything...as well as take pictures of anything, because I was having too much fun! Although I got a few of Thanksgiving dinner, they are not that good to be posted. How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great, and even better than usual. First we went to my Grandpa's and Grandma's house and ate a wonderful lunch there. So Yummy! After that we went to my great Uncle's house and had lots fun with all the cousins. And the next day we went to my dad's cousin's house for a birthday party and for more fun and family! I am going to enter in Louis's Monday photo competition and I wanted you all to remember to enter...it will be tons of fun, and I'm sure he would love it of you could join him. Well, anyways, this is a picture I just edited...hot off the press! Hee Hee!
Happiness Is is now changed to On Cloud Nine, it has the same meaning though. If anyone would like to join in go to Carlotta's Blog I'm sure she would LOVE it if you would join her. I not exactly sure what made me happy this week.....oh I know....Picnik!!!! Here is another photo I just edited a couple of days ago!
What do you all think?....Do you like it? I LOVE it! Can't wait to edit some more pictures...
It is SO much fun. Hope you all are having a great week. I am!
Yesterday I learned how to use Picnik from watching my awesome cousin Ella, as she was showing my sister how to use it. I wanted to try to do it on my own, so I thought you guys would help me out by telling me what you think? I think I did pretty good for a first time.
Well, what do you guys think? Do you like or dislike? I think it looks SO
much better than before because it didn't have a lot of color then.
This is the picture my sister edited, how do you like hers?
This post is obviously for my great, great, GREAT, cousin Louis! I love him sooooooooo much. He is a really good cousin. He is funny, laughable, kind, and very fun to be with. On a letter he sent to my sister Lindsay, he said that I needed to post some more! Louis, tell Caleb to be expecting mail soon! I love you sooooooooo much and I can't wait to see you guys in a couple weeks. Give everyone a ginormous hug and tell them that I love them too.
HELLO EVERYONE! AS YOU CAN TELL MY HOUSE, ONCE AGAIN, IS VERY BUSY. THE WORKERS THAT I HAVE TALKED ABOUT IN THE PREVIOUS POST ARE FINALLY ALL GONE AND FINISHED. WHAT A RELIEF! STILL, WE ARE ALMOST JUST AS BUSY. I DIDN'T REALLY HAVE A REASON FOR THIS POST, AND I WASN'T PLANING ON PUTTING ANY PICTURES ON IT EITHER, UNTIL I SAW THIS......
I'M SURE SOME OF YOU CAN RELATE TO THIS GOOF BALL IF YOU'VE VISITED MY AUNT SARAH'S BLOG. HE IS TRULY ONE OF THE FUNNIEST AND SILLIEST COUSIN IN THE NEUMANN FAMILY. HE ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING FUNNY TO SAY ! HE IS JUST ONE OF MANY IN THE AWESOME HINTZ FAMILY! I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!
Once again it is time for Happiness is.
I can't believe that my post was a whole entire week ago. We officially got all of our books so things are just going crazy. Not to mention that our house is under complete construction...There are people who are currently working on shingles and a new porch. I'm sure you can imagine the noise! Luckily the worst is over....I think.
I think I'm getting way off subject. This is "Happiness Is", not 'Unhappines Is".
The cutest baby tree frog in the world!!!!
Home-made pancakes, with strawberries raspberries and syrup.
In this case...it's eye liner! You can do oh soooo many things with it.
And last but not least....teaching your Sibling something new!!!!
Awhile ago my whole entire family was here...aunts, uncles, and cousins! We decided it would be good to take a new updated picture of everyone together. I would tell you everyone names but there is just waaaaaaaaaaaay too many! It took us a while to get a good picture with SO many people, but eventually we got a good one. Anyways, this is my family on my dad's side....
Well, this is them...my awesome, cool, christian, friendly family and never crazy....
Actually, this is how we normally look...can you imagine!!!!
21 cousins and 2 on the way!!!!! All together our family makes 35 people.
Some of you didn't know that our family is musical. Hannah plays violin, Lindsay plays Guitar, I play the drums, and Sophia plays the piano. I took some really cool pictures of the instruments. I thought you'd like to see them.

These are my drums, with Lindie's electric guitar.
Finally time to do my last CANADA post! As I said in the previous post, this is all about the silhouettes. This will be my favorite post about CANADA by far!!!!! I'm so excited. Okay, less talking and more posting. READ THIS: these pictures are not fake and were actually taken by Tori Douglas, Mr. Feder and myself. Thank you all for helping. And a special thank you to Mr. Feder who took all the group pictures.
This is the beautiful sunset.
All of us together... minus me!

It might be hard for you to tell , but they're praying.
The light was just perfect for this picture, this is Me!
Sisterly Love: Hannah, Me, and Lindsay
This was the real reason why we were out there. By
accident we got a little carried away taking pictures.
My name is Callie Neumann. I'm an 12 year old daughter of Christ, homeschooling in Wisconsin. I have 4 sisters named: Leah, Hannah, Lindsay, Me, and Sophia! I love photography (as you can see. I also play the drums, and have been playing for almost 4 years now. I want to go to college to either be a professional drummer or a cosmetologist (make-up, hair, and fashion). I ride at a barn every Monday and Thursday. I do chores and take lessons. My blog is basically about everything, crafts, baking, fun, and life! But the most important thing is that I LOVE GOD! My theme verse is Phill. 4:13. Ohh, and one last thing...I LOVE COMMENTS!
