A Whole Lot of Pictures and A Small Lot Of Cousins. Oh yeah, and something about Frodo Bennet & Eduard Manet.

So. First things first, I responded to all of you who commented on my last post, in case you want to check those out. Secondly,  I saw a deer in my yard! I didn't have time to catch many pictures, in that my camera was no where near me, yet i will show you a few that I did get.:

  Also, I got to see my cousins, Addison and Keaton. here are some pictures:

Keaton, the baby, was by far the most compliant to be photographed:)

also, thought I might show you this hilarious happening of our family.
Here comes the hilariousness, step by step.

1). I started reading Pride and Prejudice, which I have now decided it is an amazing piece of literature.:

2).  Josiah pointed out Elizabeth Bennet on the cover happened to look a lot like Frodo- we all readily agreed and had some good laughs.:

3). I finished the book and was looking at the back cover and happened to see something which caused me to fall into hysterics.:

  "Frodo Bennet" was painted by Edouard Manet, a portrait of another famous artist, Berthe Morisot.  
Hilarious, eh? So, I have a question for you. Do you think *cough cough* Frodo Bennet *cough cough*, er, Berthe Morisot looks like Frodo?   

So, me bloglings, what are you currently reading? would you recommend it to me? i am currently reading The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and can tell that I am going to love it, even though I'm not very far. I am so thankful that the amazingly awesomely, totally awesomely, definitely awesomely, Megean, recommended it to me! Hope y'all you all have a great day!

P. S. What photo is your favorite?                                                                                                                                                          


  1. Frodo Bennet! Haha. I'm glad you're liking Pride and Prejudice :) Is this your first time reading it or had you read it before? That I remember that wasn't my favorite book of hers, but I did read it when I was younger than when I read the rest of her books, so I'm not sure what my opinion would be now. Persuasion was my definite least favorite of the six of hers I've read.

    I'm reading Avenger by Heather Burch :P and not liking it and not going to recommend it.

    Have you ever considered doing book reviews on this blog? I think that would be awesome.

    1. I saw on your mom's blog that you're now in the last chapter of your 50,000 word novel. Congratulations! That's amazing!

    2. I've considered doing book reviews... maybe I'll do it someday. This was my first time reading it. Thanks for the encouragement.


  2. Hello, Layla and Josiah!

    What a great bunch of photos - nice job to whoever the photog is. :)

    Hmm... what am I currently reading... Well... too many to name really! I'm reading a friend's novel, just finished 'Small Town Girl' by Ann Gabhart and am about to start novels by Krista McGee and Colleen Coble - oh and next is 'A Most Peculiar Circumstance.' All of us chat on GoodReads and on our book reviews what we're currently enjoying. :)

    Just wanted to give you a shout-out for the blog follow this afternoon - thank you SO much. I hope you enjoyed your visit and feel free to do so often. Thanks again!

    1. Yeah, after you stay around for a while you'll begin to understand that i, Layla am the one who takes the pictures, writes things, et cetera. One of my pen-pals told me about Goodreads, maybe I'll check it out someday. Your welcome for the blog follow, and thanks for following me!


  3. Wow! That really does look like Frodo! That's actually really hilarious. XD
    Nice pictures, by the way. The baby pictures are really cute.

  4. Great photos Layla!!!! You have a wonderful eye for photography, your pictures are very good! What kind of camera do you use? (And I'm following, I love your blog!)
