Carrie's Page

Okay, first thing's first. Visit Mommy's Gallery and see pictures of me! I'm adorable!

Hi! My name is Carrie. My full name is Carrie Lynn Mandera, and I'm eight years old! I'm practically a teenager now!

My Uncle Shawn promised me my own internet account when I was born, and it took him six years to give to me. I swear, he's the slowest person ever. He's always so busy with other things, that he must have forgotten, or just not gotten around to it. Of course, he still takes time out to play with me, and visit with me, and watch me when he thinks I'm sleeping. But really I just pretend. I know why he watches me. It's because I'm really cute. =)

So I've finally gotten my own website. And my own email address. It's carrie @ So all of you can email me! I'm sure you're very excited, right? I know you are. I rarely respond, but I love to GET mail, so send it please!

I live in Helena, Montana with my Mom and Grandmom. We also live with Ebony (the dog), Lacy (the cat), Charm (the newest cat), and Lily (our even newer puppy). Charm is my cat, even though Mommy says she is ours. Shadow and Uncle Shawn used to live here too, but Shadow died, and Uncle Shawn bought a house, and got married to my favorite Aunt. Aunt Michelle! I was the flower girl in their wedding. You want to see pictures? You better say yes! Go see some here!

In 2006, Uncle Shawn and Aunt Michelle had Joleigh, my very first cousin. She's a lot of fun! I can't wait until she's MORE fun. I want to baby-sit, but not change diapers. EW.

My Uncle Ric lives in Missoula. He used to live with Krissy, but now he doesn't anymore. I don't get to see either of them often enough. I like Uncle Ric a lot, but I adore Krissy. She's so much fun.

Grandmom is a lot of fun, and tends to allow me to do things that Mom won't let me do. (On the other hand, Mom sometimes lets me do things Grandmom doesn't allow me to do. I'm constantly trying to work this out to my advantage!)

When I'm not at home, I'm often at school. I'll soon be starting my sixth year of school! I had two years of Head Start, and I'll be starting 3rd grade at Bryant Elementary School this fall! I love school. And I love riding the school bus. I have lots of friends there, and I'm learning a lot of things. I'm learning to read, and write, and I'm getting better every day. We take tests on books we read, and I've already gotten a lot of certificates for it. We work on math, and science, and social studies. We have music class, which is fun, and library check-outs. And PE which I absolutely love because I adore my teacher. It's great. :) And of course, my friends are there!

What else? Cheerleading! Mom signed me up in February of 2005, and I really love it. We do gymnastics (tumbling) and all kinds of stuff, and when we perform, we have uniforms and pom-pom's! It's great. I can do one-handed cartwheels, back bends from standing, and get back up again, cartwheels of course, and round offs, and many many other things. My favorite is back handsprings. I can do them by myself on the wedge shaped mat now! Soon I'll be able to on the floor, too. I recently got moved up to the Hot hots, which is awesome!.

Tv. I watch a lot of TV and a lot of movies. Mom says I watch too much, but oh well. My favorite shows are Lizzie McGuire, Hannah Montana, Zoom, Full House, a lot of Disney shows, and other stuff.

As for movies, I like a lot of them. I pretty much like anything that has Hilary Duff or Lindsay Lohan in them. I also like Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, and Care Bear movies. I like a lot of grown-up movies, too. Really, there are just far too many movies to list.

What else do I do? I drive Mom crazy! ahahahaha! Okay. I also love to dance. I dance constantly. I once was in tap dancing and I miss it. I sing. I make up my own songs! They're usually pretty silly ones. I'm going to start my very own band with my friends. I don't think Mom believes me, but I will! I love playing with my friends. I love playing with my toys. My Nintendo DS rocks! And sometimes Mom lets me play the Gamecube. I also color and draw a lot. I make Mom more pictures than she has room to put up! I love playing in my kitchen, making food. I love baking cookies.

I have my own computer, and I like to play on it as well. I have a bunch of games and I play them pretty often. I also play a lot of online games, like on I even have my own webcam!

What else can I tell you? I've traveled a lot. I've been to Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh several times (the first time I was only a month old!). I've visited San Jose, California, and Southern California, near Orange County. I went to Disneyland in June of 2005!! I've been in a lot of places in Montana. I've been to South Dakota. I've gone to Washington DC. I love traveling places, and I love airplanes. They're a lot of fun.

Grandmom says that Mom needed to make a disclaimer saying she helped me with this page. But, what do Grandmom's know anyway?
