Family Joys

Today I had my 4th and final Thanksgiving shindig. Basically every Sat. after Thanksgiving every living person on my Mom's side of the family comes over to my Grandparents house. Tons of good food is brought with everyone of course. Anyway, this is our one time a year to get to see everyone. So I decided to share my pictures of me and my cousins. The picture to your left includes all the cousins that were in attendance today. Some of them are first cousins, second cousins, step cousins... i am not sure how we are all related... all we know is we have grown up together and most of them are pretty cool to hang out with. The next picture is me and my sister and our cousin Ashley (i am pretty sure she is a 2nd cousin). We got bored sitting inside with the "adults" so we ventured outside to a local tree stump. The next picture is me and my sister and my actual cousin, Miranda. We were balanced on this lovely tree stump for quite a long time while everyone ran over to take our picture. Either we were really cute, or really silly looking. Regardless, we almost toppled off that thing.
Last but not least, we have all of the female "cousins" in one way shape or form.
Ok folks, that all of my lame blogging. I will return again soon for more of this lame blogging when i have pictures of my anniversary trip.

Its beggining to look a lot like Christmas

Daniel got off work at 12:00 this afternoon, and I definitely didn't want to get out in all the madness of Black Friday, so to kill time we decided to decorate for Christmas. Last year we had a real tree (and loved it), but this year we wanted to try our hand at a fake tree. (just to weight all our options fairly) We ended up making out like bandits at Home Depot. The pre-lit 6 1/2 foot tree was $29.99 with a $30.00 mail in rebate. yeah... what a steal. Anyway, we figured if we are going to buy a fake tree, might as well get one for basically nothing. So we came home and while watching " A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving " we set up and decorated our tree. Now, we will probably go back to a real tree next year, just because I like the look and smell of it, but we will see how this fake little thing does for now... unless of course we can find a pine scented candle.

Anyway, that's all I can muster up tonight. We have our third thanksgiving meal at 8:30 in the morning, then our fourth and final at 11:30. It's a tough job eating all that food, but someone has to do it.

Every Sunday night my brother and sister come over to our house and we partake in what we like to call, our Star Wars Saga. Now, this saga has been going on for a total of 6 weeks now... We started at the very beginning and just finished Return of the Jedi last night. While the Jedi was indeed returning, my love for Ewoks was rekindled.

For those of you who are not Star Wars fans... Let me explains what an "Ewok" is. Ewok's are cute, adorable furry creatures that live on the mood Endor. They stand approximately one meter tall and travel in packs. They are very old timy. They use slings, hangliders, spears made out of sticks... And so forth. Most Ewoks live high among the trees of Endor's forests, in villages built between the closely spaced trees. Ewoks venture to the forest floor to hunt, and set traps to catch various prey. Here is what the Ewok's villages look like.

All that to say, I am in love with Ewoks. Oh what I would do for an Ewok. When Daniel and I have a kid, we are going to dress him or her up as an Ewok and made them walk around with me just so I can live out my dream. But for now, I am going to settle with a stuffed Ewok. These two pictures are the Ewoks that I am hopefully getting from Santa Clause. The first one is Wicket, and the second one is his friend with benefits, Princess Kneesaa.

On another note... am I the only one that was surprised that Princess Leia could look this seductive? I mean, honestly. I would show you a picture of her in chains with Jabba the Hut, but because I would like to keep my job for a while, I will refraine.

I need to be digital

Wesley and Amanda came over yesterday and kept me occupied. While they were here they played in my backyard. Wesley climbed a light pole that is randomly smack dab in the middle of my yard, and Amanda proceeded to sit on one of these things.

Apparently its a net rebounder for baseball players. Regardless... It was left in my yard when we bought the house and Amanda was attempting to balance it against a fence and lay on it like a hammock. In the end, Wesley ended up risking his life laying it.

Anyway, I took pictures of all of this... But guess what. Amy Lynn doesn't have a decent digital camera! We have one...But it sucks. It was amanda's old one. It is a piece of junk that is 200 years old with no zoom and no memory whatsoever. So Amy Lynn went old school and took pictures with her regular camera. So you wont be seeing those pictures for another few months. It takes me forever to develop film... If I ever take a whole role!!!

All that to say, if you want to get me a decent digital camera for Christmas, I will not be stopping you!

Hobby Anyone?

I need a hobby. I get so bored when Daniel works the closing shift. Since I am no good at entertaining myself, I need some possible hobbies. I tried scrapbooking in middleschool, but that only lasted for a week or so. Daniel told me to take up building model rockets then launching them... But that's no fun to do by yourself. So anyone got any ideas??

gosh I need a life

Mommy Ring


My husband is the greatest. I have known that ever since we have been dating, but the past few weeks have made me fall even more in love with him than I thought possible.


When we got married, Daniel claimed he wanted seven kids (yeah I laughed too) and so after much deliberation, he settled with having four. (yet again, bringing laughter from within me) So I jokingly told him that he would have to buy me diamond jewelry for every child that I had. Tuesday we lost the baby and he gave me this. Its my mommy ring.


Yeah, he is the best.
