The Okaiawa parade

On 20th of December 2015 my family traveled to tennis practice in Okaiawa a ten minute drive away tennis practice was at 10:00 and finishes at 11:00 a hole hour but after tennis practice we gathered our stuff and traveled back to home to get ready for the Okaiawa parade, as it is getting into Christmas now it was a great time to have it.

You may have even come along to the day it occurred? But if you didn't that ok because I think there will be plenty more parades coming up. Including the Opunake parade. YAY!! The reason why we went to the Okaiawa parade was because our family along with mums friend Shellie Baylis's family helped out make a parade for the Okaiawa tennis club that myself (Jorja) and my sister (Madaline) plays for. We also have been playing for three years now and this is our third year.

We made the float minions themed because the actual theme for the hole parade was cartoons and we done minions which is very popular right now . Also they have made 3 movies out on DVD at the moment including despicable me, despicable me-2 and also a hole movie that is based on the minions called minions which is a funny!! Have you seen any of those movies??

Also mums friend Shellie Baylis made there own family float but they were disadvantaged because they won last year at the Okaiawa parade but there family is very talented and chose to do the cartoon movie Shrek. There are also some photos down below of the float Shrek themed. Everything you see in the photos of the floats down below has been hand made using tools. The characters on the floats have been totally made by hand and materials like wire and doing paper mache-ay then painting over top in the colors of the characters, don't they look amazing!! I think they do.

The characters Madaline (my sister) and I (Jorja) played was the two girls off the despicable me movies I played as the girl who loved unicorns called Angus and Madaline (my sister) played Margo the tall oldest girl.
Before the trucks, cars and vehicles started moving we got judged and who was the winner .............. The winner was the flint stones another popular cartoon movies there float was made by the local Okaiawa social club then second was ........ The minions to the Okaiawa tennis club. That's us I said to Madaline, they gave us a certificate that said second then third was ....... The fires trucks made by the Okaiawa fire fighters. 

The parade began moving on the road at 10-past-1 it was slow moving as it would be dangerous if you went fast with people standing up on the floats. After the parade had finished mr-wippie the ice cream man was there and my nana who had been watching the parade in Okiawa took us to get a ice cream and I got a bubble gum ice cream. Then mum took us home it was a great day in my opinion!!! Did you go to the Okaiawa parade? ,or have you gone to any parades yet? And where? These are all the questions I am asking myself comment below and let my know. I love hearing your comments and reading them.

Ed Sheeran

The weekends just passed my mum (Vicki) and her friend Shellie went up to Ed Sheeran. If you dont know who Ed Sheeran is, he is a famous worldwide singer and proforms songs all over New Zealand, Ed Sheeran was singing in Auckland at the Vector arena. Also the same weekend that has just passed they also had the AcDc concert but some people in my class at Auroa Primary School said it didnt go as well as planned. Also I dont think it changed the amount of people going to the Ed Sheeran concert because mum (Vicki) said you were touching the other people next to you, it was squashed!!! Also while mum was away she done some shopping, she also got myself (Jorja) and my sister (Madaline) a wrist band from the Ed Sheeran concert. Along with a book where you start from the 1st of Januarary next year and you have to draw a picture and write the date everyday of the year because I love drawing. Also a cool cat wallet and a owl pen because I love owls. Did you go to the concert in the past weekend either if it was in the AcDc or Ed Sheeran? Write a comment down below and let me know if you enjoyed it!!


This is a pictue of the wrist band that I got from my mum (Vicki). The photo of the wrist band I took on my arm in my bedroom.


Here is the picture of the owl pen, the book where you have to write a drawing in everyday and the beautiful cat wallet.

New Kitten




On Friday the 28/11/2015 I got a new kitten the cat is a ragdoll cat it is so fluffy and soft. It is a kitten it is seven weeks old and it is my early Christmas present for myself (Jorja) and my sister Madaline, the kitten is so friendly it follows you around everywhere you go and you sometimes step on it, its name is Harry which is quite funny cause my cousins name is Harry. Its paws are white and under the chin is white but everywhere else is black. We feed Harry twice a day we feed it a handful of nuts morning and also night. We feed it meat especially for kittens. Have you got any pets? & what pets are they? These are the questions I am asking myself. Let me know in the comments below!!!
