My Dad sent me an email requesting that I write a story about one of our neighbors. These are my favorite memories of her. Her name was Betty. She was about 76.

When I was about 4 or 5 my sisters and I used to ask Miss Betty if we could come in her house and she would always tell us to ask Mom so we would ask and she would usually say yes. So we went back over and told her. She let us in and she always gave us those suckers with gum inside - oh yeah, blo-pops. Then we would sit down and watch DragonTails (the cartoon) . After a while she would show us her key chain collection, give us 6-9 caramels and send us home.

I guess that's all I remember about good old Miss Betty.

P.S. our friends Paige and Amber Whittington would come also.

Observed in a Certain Father by Seven Young Ladies.


Built our house



Encourages us

Forgiving and Forgetful


Hard-working (This kind of goes with B)



Kind and Kingly

Loves his kids

Muscular (Masculine was also discussed; Maniacal was suggested but voted down)


Observant (Kaitlyn observed that this is not always good: for example, when Dad looks into the bedroom and observes a mess)

Poetic (Dearest Father, Apple of our Eye and Jewel of our Hearts, we beseech you to meditate upon the word)

Quite nice

Rough-houses with his children

Spanks us so we're not brats


Unselfish with a rented '05 Mustang; also,

Unflinching when he trades punches



Xtra energetic (250 push-ups in a day, and often walks several miles)



My sisters and I thought of all these things about two days ago.

My Mom helped too.

Guess what: my family is beginning a new blog! I think it's going to be called The Green Note Pad it's for school. Just a moment I have to turn the AC down so I'm not sitting in such a cold room...there that's better. I will write about it when it really happens. Well I guess that's all.

P.S This was a school assignment. Could you tell? You can answer by commenting. If you want to go to my Dad's blog he explains it better. It was ''Creative writing'' I had to use the following words:

1. beginning

2. Green note pad

3. cold room

Well more to come

So our Aunt Linda, Uncle Ronny, and my 2 second cousins twice removed, got up at 3:00 AM and packed us a really good breakfast and we were off.
So we slept in the car from about from 5:00 AM to 7:00 AM then we ate strawberries, egg biscuits, bananas, pineapple, and I think that's all besides the apple juice, and coffee for Mom and Dad.
After about 9 hours we got to our destination (were we stayed for a week). Everyone was very happy.
Our GPA, GMA, Aunt,and Uncle took us out to eat at Logans Roadhouse.
After that we went to their house and went to bed.
Here is a list of cool things that happened:

1.For Mom and, Dad's anniversary, Dad rented a Mustang Convertible and I was the first kid to ride it.

2. My Aunt Abigail and Uncle Thomas saved $50 worth of fireworks for when we got there.
When they set off a 25 shot mortar and a dog grabbed it and retrieved it to its Master while it was still shooting off.
His house was getting showered with fireworks and he thought we it did on purpose I guess.
He was so mad I don't blame him. I probably would have called the cops. So my Dad and uncle and and a couple of other guy went up the hill and calmed him down and after a few minutes they were up there laughing.

3. We went swimming.

4.We went bowling.

So we woke up, said our goodbyes and left our grandma and grandpa's house. GMA packed us a whole bunch of really fun snacks, so that was our breakfast. We sung a few psalms in the car then fell asleep.
Nothing interesting happened on the way back except when we stopped at Aunt Linda's house.
So we got to Aunt Linda's house ate and went to bed.
The next morning was Sunday. Instead of going to church with our Aunt Linda and Uncle Ronny, we went to church with our Aunt Yvonne, who is Aunt Linda's sister. Afterwards we ate lunch at Aunt Gail and Uncle Bobby's house. We had fruit salad, hamburger helper, green beans, corn, hot dogs and leftover birthday cake. Then we went back to Aunt Linda's house to gather our backpacks.
It was raining when we got there. Aunt Linda fed us a second dinner. This time we had green beans, pot roast, and a couple more things that I can't remember. Then we had a second dessert - banana pudding. Sooo good!
After that, we left.
When we got home it was about 10:30 PM. We unloaded most of the stuff, then we went to bed.
The End.

Here is a picture of me and the twins I talked about in the post called, "who am I."
Alaura is holding her guinea pig, Alec. The boy is William (I think you can tell who he is), and I'm the other girl.
You can really tell they're twins, can't you? But you can't really tell they're my aunt and uncle.

On our vacation we went to Tennessee,
So all 9 of us pile up into the 8 passenger suburban... Ouch! brat! idiot! meanie! right?
That is what most people expected but no it was pretty quiet.
Every 2-3 hours something might happen but that was all, plus there were only 5 bathroom-breaks.
That's a record for us.
We stayed the night at our Great Aunt Linda and our Great Uncle Ronny's house.

My name is Kaitlyn Shea Coghlan (Cofflan) and I have a huge family, I am 10 years old and the second child out of 7,only girls,My Mom is the oldest out of 14!
there are only 4 boys her name is Kimberly.
My Dad is the oldest out of 6 his name is perry,
my grandmother from my Dad's side of the family has 6 sisters also,
but my grandmother from my mom's side of the family only has 1 sister and 1 brother.
we used to live in Ohio but we moved to Texas because my Grandma and Grandpa Brown and 15 aunts and uncles lived down here but after 2 years they moved to NY.
I am very disappointed but they moved because Grandpa got a good job offer in NY. But you know what the bible says about that it says: Rom 8:28 And we now that all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are called according to his purpose.
they took the 7 who were the ages 7-16 I played with a set of twins who were 9 there names are William and Alaura.
and that's who I am.
