The Reason We Celebrate Christmas!

This is one of my all time favorite movies for Christmas time.
I love this scene, we even have an ornament up on our tree that has Linus recite this.
Don't forget the Real Reason we celebrate Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful readers, I love you all and I pray that you would have a blessed Christmas!

Here I Go, this looks like a fun one!

1.What is your one favorite dish to see on the table at Christmas dinner? Hmm, desert..hehe

2.Do you have a Nativity scene or a creche? How many pieces does it have? Well, we have one outside as lights, and one little one inside, not quit sure how many pieces though :)

3.What is your favorite Christmas movie? Rudolph or Charlie brown Christmas

4.If you and your family could spend this Christmas in another country, where would you go? I would rather just spend it here :D

5.Does your grandmother usually knit you something for Christmas, or does she give you something different -- say, a Wii? I don't have

6.Have you ever gone out of the house wearing a reindeer headband? Of course! Its fun!

7.Do you usually make or buy your Christmas gifts? Buy, I would love to be able to make them, but I'm not that creative :)

8.When do you set up your Christmas decorations? When do you take them down? usually after Thanksgiving, and maybe around new years

Ponchos- A Winter Favorite!

First off I would like to thank you all who helped me choose my blog header.
Though it happened to be a tie between the choices the ones who chose the second made a good point that the first one was a bit too busy for my background.

Now, for some reason I have been particularly obsessed with ponchos recently.
I just love how adorable they look, and how warm!
And, though I don't own one for myself I probably will soon.
Here are some I found on that I adore!
The first one is my absolute favorite!

A Gingerbread Neighborhood :D

Every year, as tradition Abby and I go to our Aunt's house to decorate Gingerbread houses for Christmas. This year it ended up being black friday. We weren't the only ones there though, a few of our aunt's other nieces and nephews were decorating too, they were younger though.

Here are some pictures of the houses and the process of decorating them:

Autumn Fun :)

Well, i have not recently posted anything interesting and I figured I would today.
I don't know if very many of you celebrate Halloween, I don't exactly either, but we do go to our Aunt and Uncle's every year and have sloppy Joe's ( its a tradition) and we give out candy to trick-or-treaters.
But this year we also went to one of our Church friend's house for a costume party and scavenger hunt.
And, even before that we went on a field trip with our Church Youth Group to a local orchard, that was much fun as well.
Also on the same night we went to something called "cosmic bowling" its bowling with black lights, music and pizza.

We had loads of fun with each event and I'd like to share some photos from them with you.
Orchard and Bowling first:

Halloween Costume Party and Scavenger Hunt:

Thanks For reading.

I 've Been Tagged! :D

Ok, so it has been quite a while since I have been tagged for anything, so this is a bit exciting.
This one sounds fun because i answer questions, then i ask my own to whoever i tag.
In a way i have just explained the rules, but if you're like me and don't understand unless someone explains it directly, than here you go:

Once you have been tagged then copy and paste the 8 questions i will ask at the end of the post on to your own blog post.

Tag 8 people who have their own blogs.

Then make up your own 8 questions for them.

Pretty simple, I hope
and just a tip, it helps if you let them know they've been tagged in a comment on thier blog, just in case they miss your post.

Anywho, here we go.
1. What is the weirdest thing that ever happened to you? I woke up asking my mom one morning what she meant when she asked me what I wanted for my birthday that night, then she said she hadn't asked me, so it must have been a dream, to this day it confuses me :) I can't even remember when it was either, hehe

2. If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would you choose? I would probably be a better singer and actor, I love both but singing isn't my forte and i suppose i am pretty good at acting, but it always helps to learn more.

3. What is your favorite day of the week? Sunday

4. How many pairs of shoes do you own? around 8

5. Can you speak another language? unfortunately not :(

6. What is a song you currently love? Something Beautiful by Needtobreathe

7. If you could do anything today, what would you do? Get all my friends together and get lost in a cool corn maze :) preferably in the dark

8. What would you say if I said I was going to take you out to see any movie, and go to dinner anywhere you want? What movie would you want to go see? Where would we eat? I would want to go see the guardians of Ga'hoole again and I would want to go eat at somewhere Mexican :)

Okey dokey, now I shall tag 8 people-

Sammy from Sammysleuth's blog

Bleah from With Love and Kisses

Carlotta from A Pastor's Girl's Ponderings

Eldarwen from The Faithful Elven Princess

Chris in FL from Joyful Mother

Tsavah from My Sisters and Me

Abby from His Sparrow

HayHay from Fish Flakes

Ok, now for the questions

1. If you could only use 1 color to paint your whole house with, which would you pick.

2. If you were a plant of any kind which would you be, and why?

3. If you could have as many siblings as you wanted, how many would you have?

4. If you woke up with one super ability what would it be, and what would do with it?

5. If your closet was one big clothing store, which one would you chose?

6. If you could control the weather and its climate to make where you live any season you wanted forever, which season would you pick?

7. If you could have been born in any time period which time period for which specific reason?

8. If everyone had one theme song for thier life which would yours be?

Hope you like the questions, I sorted through every file in my brain looking for these creative questions.
Thanks for reading :)
