I was talking with my mom and I decided that I would spend the next year celebrating as many holidays and occurrences as possible. I think there are around 300 holidays a month!
My mom and I have always loved all the peculiar holidays and have had many laughs discussing them. I think this year will be a lot of fun but it will also require a lot of dedication, time, and it wont be without costs. I will give you once a week up dates once I get it started (Probably next month) and I will post daily journalings as often as possible. I have a feeling I will be rather busy.
I am home schooled which I believe will make this a whole heap easier, but also more challenging. Mom made an agreement with me... For this year I will use this as a lot of my school work. I will be writing reports on many of these days and I will be doing loads of research. I look forward to this coming year and I hope you will enjoy following my blog.
Feel free to post your comments along the way.

Tater day

It specifically said that Tater day was supposed to be Sweet Potatoes.
Actually Tater day is not just a day to eat Taters! It all started in 1842, People would get together to have a day of selling and trading potatoes! You can read about it here: http://www.explorekentuckylake.com/lakesarea/events/taterday.htm and there's also a page on Tater day on Wikipedia.
We for Tater day just ate sweet potatoes! I made sweet potato fries.
Here's how:
Just peel and cut up four sweet potatoes, Cut them what ever size you want your fries to be. Put one or two tablespoons of oil into a Nine by Thirteen baking pan. Place all the potato slices onto the pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, onion powder, and chives on top of he taters. Put in oven on 350 Fahrenheit. Take the taters out of the oven half way through and with a spatula flip all the taters and put back in the oven for them to finish baking. When they are as soft and browned as you would like take them out, serve, and enjoy. (This served our family of six)

National Peanut Butter and Jelly day

There are very few sandwiches that I actually like, and PBJ is not one of them. So my sister made a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, I put Peanut Butter and Jelly on a Rice cake...and just for the heck of it we made Peanut Butter and Jelly crackers too! A very varied lunch! Happy PB and J day!

International Children's Book day and National Love our Children day

I combined these two by reading a book to my children....Now I am only 16 years old but I do have kids... They're not humans, but they are mine. I feel you'll notice that in the future if there happens to be children related holiday you'll either see a kitten or a herd of goats. You'll just have to deal with it!
So I went out side to read aloud a Children's book to my Goats because I love my Children. I was reading the book Matilda by Roald Dahl. I thought this was very funny because in the picture above I'm reading to my goat Matilda (Or Tilly!) - Who is due to have her babies any day now!
Here's me and Pippi. (Another from a Children's Book!) ...Oh and if you look closely you can see Faye's tail - She's my 3 week old doeling. Annika's her mom, you can see her in the top picture. She's the one my hands on.

World Autism Day and Autism Awareness month

For world Autism day I did some research on Autism.
And later I'm going to watch a movie called Fly Away. I've never seen it before and the only thing I know about it is that it's about a girl with Autism.
Mom want's me to write on most of the medical related occurrences, but this one I was able to do with just some reading and a movie!

Reconciliation day

Reconciliation day is a day to make up with those you've hurt and to forgive those you've held grudges against.

Today I reconciled with my dad. I begged his forgiveness for my getting him wet with the sprayer yesterday! (He had overreacted about it a bit...) The sprayer thing was my April Fools joke!
