It's different every year. Normally we all go in the living room and we sit on the floor and begin to open presents. After opening them, Mama will start breakfast and then we'll sit around while it's cooking and talk and "play" with our gifts! We'll eat breakfast in our pj's, and then we'll start getting ready to go to my Grandmother's to spend Christmas with the rest of my family.

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE || an ugly sweater party (eating pizza + playing games + making memories)


CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE, Y'ALL!!!!


I LOVE this time of year!!! Our house is all decorated for Christmas (Even though our tree wont turn on anymore. After working perfectly for about two weeks, the lights won't work, but we'll just forget about that little bit of info at the moment. Ok?)
The house is BEAUTIFUL!! Mama definitely knows how to make our house feel warm and cozy. And we're supposed to get snow on Wednesday!!!! *happy dance* I don't think we've gotten snow before January in a very long time, so hopefully I wont be disappointed.


We had our first Christmas party of the season. An ugly sweater party! It was the first one I had ever been to and let me just say, IT WAS A BLAST!!! We made so many memories!

 
 
 
 
We feasted on pizza, hot wings, and cookies pretty much the whole evening, played games, laughed a bunch, and then just talked. It was a great night!
I won 2nd place for the ugliest sweater! YES!!!  I did a "Feliz Navidad" theme. It said "Fleece Navidad", and I had a little sheep on the front with a sombrero. He was pretty cute!
But anyway, like I said earlier, it was a great night and I'm so excited for the next Christmas party that's coming up this week!!!



 
Are you excited for Christmas time? Are you going to a Christmas party this year? Have you ever been to an ugly sweater party? Tell me about your sweater.

November in Review -- Q+A + thanksgiving + air soft wars + campfires || Hello December


HAPPENINGS

I drove for the first time at night!!! It was actually a lot easier than I was expecting.
 

I'm almost finished school!!! OH YEAH!!!! (and I've already written my graduation speech which I won't be saying until next year????)

I went hiking with my siblings and friends. We got lost and ended up walking over ten miles. But it was still a lot of fun!!

I went Christmas shopping with Mama and Kris and we went to Chik-fil-a for lunch!!!

We had an air soft war with some friends.

 

Thanksgiving happened (HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y'ALL if I didn't say that already)


↑ On the way to my Grandmothers house for Thanksgiving ↑ 


 Our house is all decorated for Christmas!! Ahhhh....

I have come to realize that I have the BEST FRIENDS EVER *nod nod*

We went to our friends house, ate amazing food, played kick ball, and just sat around the campfire and talked! IT WAS AN AWESOME NIGHT!!!!

I'm doing a Q+A so don't forget to ask some questions in the comments!!
 
 
 


RANDOM MOMENTS


"I have a new doll. She has clothes on." - my niece


Ben, Kris, and I all singing a random song together and without realizing it we were singing three part harmony and it sounded pretty good.
us after we finished the song:




kris: "Something feels weird. I think I'm sitting backwards."


Kris and me debating on how old you have to be to be considered a spinster??? (UPDATE: we still don't know the answer)


A little boy from our church was telling us a story.
me: "How did you come up with that story?"
lil boy: "From my genius head."


me talking to ben: "What time is it?"
ben*glances down at his kindle* "It's ninety two percent. I mean eight fifty."


lil kid: "Look at the moon. Do you have a moon at your house?"


We were over at a friends house and I couldn't find my gloves, so one of their little kids (she's three) saw some gloves, picked them up, smelled them, and then said, "Yep, they're yours."
I'm not quite sure what to think of it....
