Let me introduce you to my party people…

Hi hey hello,

After thinking about it, I realized, there are quite a few events that were not blogged about throughout the year, the most substantial being Thanksgiving, well I blogged about it, but I didn’t post any pictures about it, and I have quite a few pictures.

Got all my second cousins and the kids. The time was simply wonderful, but since I already told you guys about that, I won’t drag on!

Have a spectacular New Year! (:

Layla, I’m begging, darling please. Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

Hi hey hello,

I hope you all had as fantastic of a Thanksgiving as I did. I love getting together and seeing family that I don’t often see. Oh how, even now, I miss my little cousins (well,second cousins). They have grown so much since last year. They are so funny and busy. They are in school now! I got to see my older cousins and their families, a lot of time was spent astonished at the fact that my graduation is a mere 6 months away (WOAH!), especially since I will be the first grandchild to graduate from high school, at least on my dad’s side.

Enough reminiscing, I have yet another soccer game tomorrow. This game is against one of our biggest rivals, Taylor County. They are big guys who like to play rough and hit you are hard as they possibly can. This rivalry developed the first time we played them, it was a rough game, and so it has continued ever since. Last year, at one of the games, some words were exchanged between a guy on their team, and one on ours. Some racial comments were made and things got a little sticky. The guy on our team is now our assistant coach, so we have a score to settle, sort of. Wish us luck!

I will have all of my Thanksgiving pictures uploaded as soon as possible, I have been really busy, and the Internet, as I stated before, was a little sketchy at the hotel. It will probably be later this week, but it will be as soon as possible! I should probably also find the cord needed to transfer the pictures, that might be a little bit helpful.

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? What did you do? Stay in town? Visit family? What weird traditions does your family have?

Hi hey hello,

So, today is the day. The big day, Turkey Day, Engorge Yourself Days, otherwise known as Thanksgiving. This day is so widely celebrated as a day where we get together as families and eat food, and then watch football, the eat some more food, and maybe even consume some spirits. But do we really remember why we celebrate this holiday, we are supposed to be thankful for what we have. Now, I do not want to rant on and on, so I will move on.

I want to not just be thankful today, but every day of my life, because I am so blessed. I mean, I have three good meals a day, a big comfy bed, enough clothing, a roof over my head. That is a lot more than a lot of people in the world can claim to have. I also have a family, with two parents and lots of siblings, that more than a lot of people in America alone can claim to have. On this day every year, people sit down and think about what they are thankful for, but then move on. Why not be thankful everyday? I want to be able to say each day that I found something to be thankful for, no matter how huge or minuscule.

I will begin this challenge with a list however, of the things I am thankful for in my life.  I will keep it brief because I have scores of things to be grateful for:

What I Am Thankful For:

  • Family – who love and support me
  • Friends – who are there to kick me into shape when I need it
  • God – to loves me and guides me even when I am a total jerk
  • Music – for keeping me sane
  • You guys! – for encouraging me and keeping me accountable for this little blog

I love you guys! I hope you have a splendiferous Thanksgiving, full of family, thanks, friends, love, and of course a little food. I will hopefully have pictures up from our party this weekend!

What are you thankful for? Family? Friends? Work? School?

I got a pocket, got a pocket full of sunshine, I got a love and I know that it’s all mine oh…

Hi hey hello,

So, I just finished watching a football game as I write this. I cannot believe FSU lost to Virginia… this is horrific and we think we stand a chance against Florida next week. I mean really. Sorry for the nonsensical ranting, but I do love my team.

On a better note, we had my hometown thanksgiving dinner today. Half of my family lives in town and the other half lives down south, so we will be going there for Thanksgiving day, but we had our little feast today with the family that lives here. Some aunts and uncles came, along with cousins who I haven’t seen in a while, the best friend also showed up. I love it when you are so close to someone that it seems normal to have them over for Thanksgiving dinner. I thought about doing the stereotypical “What I am Thankful For..” post, but I figured I would save that for the real Thanksgiving.

Do you all have multiple Thanksgiving celebrations due to family location? Do you enjoy football, if so, who is your team? If not, what sports do you like, to play or watch?
