Five days until Christmas!

Hosting trip

Hi everyone!
I got some great news! I forgot to post about this on my blog before this but.... Two more days until the Ukrainians are here! Okay let me explain,My brothers are adopted from Ukraine(they've been with us for almost two years) so Dad felt called to do a hosting trip to Ukraine! The vice governor almost wouldn't sign her name! A lot of people in our church prayed that she would have compassion, it was really sad for my dad when she wouldn't sign because he had put so much into this project. But she signed! All the kids are coming down! Please pray for the mission trip. There will be thirteen kids with one adult spending the night in New York city.

Hi everyone!
First I want to thank you all for your encouraging comments about my book. I never have to put comment moderation on my blog or delete any comments! No one ever uses bad language on my blog so thanks everyone!
Also I've decided to do a contest sort of like AGMA. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS POST, dress up your doll(not everyone has an American Girl so just pick any doll) and take a picture of her/him on your blog and title the post HDFS entry. Then I'll put a link to that post on my blog and a poll for people to vote on. Play fair! Only one vote per person! But you can do as many entries as you like(as long as they're different)! This month's theme is Sleepover or Christmas you can pick!
Hannah
P.S. You can do more than one doll in a picture. You can also put it in video form if you'd like!

The Libertad Chronicles: Book one, Chapter one, Part three

The Shadow Warrior ran swiftly and Gwendolyn couldn't stand up. Her leg felt like it was on fire and she knew that at any moment she would again be staring into the deep nothingness of that face. The Shadow Warrior drew his sharp, shrewd dagger and drew himself to his full height, Jesus Protect me she prayed silently. The dagger came down like a falcon but Gwendolyn couldn't move she closed her eyes, expecting that it would be all over the dagger shone in the moonlight, and then it stopped. Gwendolyn opened her eyes she was still in the forest. Gwendolyn saw the Shadow Warrior shrinking back in terror, she wondered what he was hiding from. She looked to her right, there was a young girl around ten years old but tall for her age, around her waist was a sword and on her back a bow and a quiver of arrows. She was saying something, Gwendolyn couldn't understand the words. Everything seemed muddled up and spinning, like a child's top that has been wound up and released. Then, she saw blackness.
..........................................................................................................................................................................
"What do you mean you didn't kill them?" shrieked Lynnette "They are a threat to The Evil One's plans!". "They are protected by a higher power. We can hardly get within two yards of them." replied a hollow voice that made you just think of evil when you heard it. "I don't care! I want them dead!" screamed Lynnette "If you do not kill them soon I--" "But we can't." interrupted the Shadow Warrior. Lynnette mumbled a spell under her breath. The Shadow Warrior turned to dust! "Those christians don't know who they're dealing with." she muttered.
..........................................................................................................................................................................
When Gwendolyn awoke she found herself in a small hut with the girl sitting next to her. "Finally! I thought you'd never wake up!" she said "You took a bad blow to your head....". Gwendolyn was confused, "Who are you?" she asked the girl quickly responded "Oh my! I'm so sorry I didn't tell you earlier! My name is Isoka.". "What happened to my--" a sound came from behind the door, "Is she awake yet?", "Guess that answers my question." she said to herself.

Hi everyone. I checked my Who's amung us stats and it looks like someones been copying my book. I don't remember copying the story but it's possible it could be me. I'm going to get Gwendolyn out of her grave predicament she's in right now but then I'm going to stop posting the story on my blog. Sorry everybody who was reading it but I work hard on my story and I don't want someone to steal it. I will give you little reports on how the book is going but I won't post any more of the story on my blog. I'm really sorry, but I don't want someone else to publish it and take what I've been working on. I'll probably put the last part of chapter one up next week.
Hannah
I have what will probably be come chapter one in my book The Libertad Chronicles under the post about my Christmas traditions, please read it and tell me what you think. So far part one and part 2 are out.

My Christmas Traditions


Rachel asked me what my traditions are around this time of year and here they are: We go to a Christmas tree farm and choose a tree to chop down and then go home and almost immediately start decorating it and the house!
We make lots of cookies, some to eat and some to give to my grandma. We have, have, have to do the ginger bread men every year! The candy cane cookies look cute but we all agreed that the look was better than the taste!

And our advent calender! We opened the first box last night! We've had this advent calender ever since I can remember, we do it annually and I don't think we've missed a year!




And last but not least(you'll have to imagine what this looks like cause I couldn't find a picture)
lefsa! Lefsa is a Norwegian dish and very delicious. My great grandmother had Norwegian heritage so our family has been doing lefsa since my mom was little(or possibly before that)! My grand mother and my mom usually get together to make the lefsa. Lefsa sounds very weird but it is absolutely delicious! Lefsa is a potato tortilla that you put a little butter, Some bacon and powdered sugar.
Merry Christmas~

Part Two, Chapter one, Book One of The Libertad Chronicles

Selena ran from the clearing in the direction of the scream,leaving the two girls alone in the clearing. She looked and looked but found no one there she headed back toward the clearing, when she got there she was met by a terrible surprise. Shadow Warriors had surrounded her two little cousins she felt helpless and weak, she didn't know what to do or if there was anything she could do. She knew exactly what to do she prayed a prayer for bravery and strength and hurried toward the Shadow Warriors, they slowly turned toward her and she suddenly felt something on her side. She looked down, It was a sword! Not just any sword though, she seemed to recognize it.
On the side was an engraving "The Sword of the LORD"! "Thank you Jesus!" she cried! She ran to meet the Shadow Warriors with her sword drawn and suddenly the Shadow Warriors shrank back exept for one who charged at Selena full force,and sunlight glinted of the sword as it sank into the black heart of the Shadow Warrior. She ran over to her cousins "Are you all right asked Selena both girls were sobbing uncontrollably and after what they had been through Selena didn't blame them she brought them back to the other girls quickly explaining what they had been through and about the sword. Selena showed them the engraving on the side and saw a verse her parents had taught her:" .....Take up the Sword of the LORD, which is the word of God. ".
"We should go back." said Gwendolyn "The Shadow Warriors always travel in groups. We wouldn't want to get caught with these kids after dark the Shadow Warriors will want to take back what they have lost." "Gwen's right, we can come back later but we need to get these girls home, they've had a big shock and we wouldn't want to upset them any further" said Isolina glancing back at Lydia who was trying to comfort the weeping girls. Selena agreed and they all headed back toward Tornal to return the girls home, Lydia was holding little Sonya who was still weeping and Selena holding Takara's hand and eying the shadows and undergrowth warily.
......................................................................................................................................................................
As they neared Macawi's hut Lydia wondered what Macawi would say. Would she be angry?
As they grew closer Lydia found she too was searching into the undergrowth for hidden enemies, she half expected a Shadow Warrior to jump from the shadows and attack she often found herself praying silent prayers, she looked at the little girls "They're as scared as I am" she thought to herself. After what seemed like decades they arrived at the hut. As they entered the hut Macawi said "Oh, good you're back I made an apple p---" she stopped at the sight of the bedraggled girls and The Sword around Selena's waist "Okay, sit down this might take awhile. But something tells me that something happened and that it wasn't that you girls danced around in a rain storm." "Mommy, there were big black monsters!"said Takara. "You girls go to bed you too, Christopher." Takara and Sonya walked hand in hand to their bedroom with Christopher tagging behind. "Now" said Macawi "Can you explain what happened?".
........................................................................................................................................................................
Selena carefully explained each and every detail about the walk, how Takara and Sonya ran off, how she was tricked by Shadow Warriors and how she had gotten the sword, "I prayed for bravery and I saw The Sword!" Selena told her aunt. she showed her aunt the engraving on the side of The Sword, and her aunt pulled out a Bible "That verse is from Ephesians if I remember correctly." Ephesians 6:17 I think" said Selena "Yes,"said her aunt"Yes I think it is.". "What do you think the Shadow Warriors wanted with Takara and Sonya?" asked Isolina, "Who knows? The Shadow Warriors do terrible things it could be a number of things." replied Macawi.
"We've got to go back and find out, Shadow Warriors haven't been seen for decades. The Evil One must be at work." said Gwendolyn.
.......................................................................................................................................................................
"Come on" said Selena "We need to get to Sigourney before morning, our parents are probably wondering where we are." "Do you think they'll believe that we ran into Shadow Warriors?' asked Lydia, " I don't know." replied Selena. " About a half mile more!" cried Gwendolyn from the front. Suddenly out of the undergrowth leaped a terrible Shadow Warrior, he had the head of a monster with huge fangs and sharp teeth and his face seemed like a huge pit wanting to swallow her alive he drew his dark sword and Gwendolyn thought it was all over she stepped backward and tripped over the root of an oak tree and was lying,helpless on the grass.

Happy first day of December! We are looking forward to using are advent calender today for the first time this year!

Part One, Chapter One, Book One of The Libertad Chronicles

Gwendolyn waited for her friend Selena to come. It was a beautiful fall day and Gwendolyn and Selena were going to babysit for Selena's Aunt Macawi.Finally Selena came rushing down the old path. "I made it!" she cried "I thought I'd never finish my chores in time!". Gwendolyn hugged her friend and then asked "When will your aunt be here?"
"Exactly five minutes!" said Selena excitedly. "Are you sure this is a good idea? I mean neither of us have ever done this before." said Gwendolyn, "You can't back out now, we already committed to it." said Selena " Look if it makes you feel any better we can go ask the other girls to come help us." Gwendolyn was very relieved , her friend Selena often bit off more than she could chew, she immediately replied saying: "That sounds good, I know from experience that being in a house with even just three kids can be crazy with or without an adult." Selena could relate, in her family she was one in ten! "Okay." said Selena "But we better hurry, my aunt could come any minute now!".
...........................................................................
"We made it!" said Lydia, "Exactly on time!" said Isolina. "We should pray to be responsible and for the safety of the kids we're watching." said Gwendolyn. "Gwen's right, let's pray right now." Lydia said. "Father God, please help us be responsible and know what to do when we need to, please help us keep the kids safe and be worthy of Selena's aunt's trust in Jesus' name, Amen." "Amen" said all the girls. "Let's go!" said Selena.
"Well hello there!" said Macawi, she was washing her family's clothes in the brook next to their hut. "Hello Aunt Macawi!" said Selena, "Why if I'd known you had brought friends I would have made a pie!" said Macawi "Now what are all your names?"
Selena pointed out each of her friends and told her aunt their names "This is Isolina, This is Lydia and this is Gwendolyn." Macawi smiled, "Selena told me you all live in Sigourney, is it nice being near each other?" "Yes, it is." said all the girls at the same time. "Well, I better call Takara,Sonya and Christopher, They're playing in the hut." said Macawi, Selena quickly objected "No,we can get them we wouldn't want to bother you, we can go find them they're not that great at hide and seek." "Well... If you insist." "We do insist,we don't want to be a bother." said Lydia.
................................................................................
"Takara,Christopher,Sonya" called Lydia and Gwendolyn. "Yes?" giggled Sonya and Takara,"Where is Christopher?" asked Gwendolyn. "He's hiding and I bet you can't find him!" they giggled again, "I think I can." said Lydia "Come out from under the table Christopher we're going to go on a walk!" "Really!" came a sound from under the table cloth, "Yes!" replied Lydia. Takara,Christopher and Sonya were overjoyed and soon shouts of "Yippee!" and little giggles filled the hut, the other girls came running and were impressed with Lydia's skills in talking to the little ones. They started on their way with Lydia holding Sonya's and Takara's hands, Christopher walked alongside Gwendolyn. They reached the edge of Clyde Woods and started to turn back when Takara saw wild flowers in a little clearing a few yards away, she took off in the direction of the clearing and little Sonya ran after her.
Selena ran after them and soon caught up by that time the two little girls were happily playing in the clearing. "Now girls you can't---" she was interrupted by a piercing scream.
