Thanksgiving Day (Yum)

Once again this is Mariah ;)

Today was super fun, it started out with this cool idea my mom (Andronica) came up with. So, we open this box and pull out a slip of paper, on the paper it said "Make butter" so we made ourselves butter, by shacking these glasses that had the right ingredients in it. Anyway, everyday we will be doing something new, on the slips of paper. When my grandparents arrived we played Wii Sports and then had dinner.Dinner was a success, and our butter tasted pretty good. After dinner we played Phase 10 Amy even played with us it was really fun! I'm just so thankful for my life, family, and friends.Without them, where would I be?

Unavailable *wink wink*

Unfortunately, Andronica is unavailable (cleaning) so her wonderful daughter Mariah (that's me!) will be telling you how the day went...

It all started at about 6:10 this morning when my mom came down to wake me up, basically while I rolled over and went back to sleep while my mom dashed back upstairs. Going down the hallway she continued to wake my sisters (Amy and Erica) and turned on the movie, Robin Hood (the cartoon one) for them. Right now they really like Robin Hood, anyways about 20 minutes later I still haven't even tried to get up, but some 2 minutes later I get dressed and all, the fastest I ever had! (so I wouldn't miss the bus) Finally at 7:20-ish we all headed out the door and off to school.

"Hey mom," -That's me talking
"hm?" -That's my mom
"How was your day at work?"
"Busy, I walk a lot"

Continues to clean the first aid box

After school we rushed home, I put on my volleyball gear and we headed over to my 5 hour long practice (which, was pretty good.) My dad then came and got me and we just had to stop at 7-11 (he he) While I was playing, Mom and my sisters went to Win-Co to get food for thanksgiving(yum) :)

This is what real time events are going on at 10:43 p.m :
Our new kitten Annie, and Jenny (my poodle) are running around chasing each other, my dad is on his computer (which has a huge screen!) and looking at some map thing, and my mom is like I said cleaning. Oh yeah! Amy and Erica are of course sleeping. Well that's all for now, thanks for reading.


Picking up speed

I hope to be "picking up speed" and posting more on the daily events in our house so family members can enjoy the chaos, I mean fun, along with us. Tomorrow is the last day of school for the week and everyone is excited to be having 4 days off. I am getting ready for the Advent Calendar to countdown the days until Christmas. This year I am doing something new and you can check back each day to see how it goes. I printed a different activity on 30 pieces of paper, then I numbered them for each day until New Years. The way it will work is one of the girls will pick the top paper and we all get to do the activity listed. I think they will have a lot of fun and it will help get the whole family into the Christmas Spirit.
