Thanksgiving is tomorrow?! Whoa! That came fast... I'm really excited, I have LOTS of things to be thankful for! Isn't it a great holiday? I love it!

I am thankful for.......

1. My great family:)
I love our family, even though I don't think my brothers think about things before they say them, but then again... I could work on that too. But my parents are the best! And my brothers too...I guess. And I love my Grandma's ALOT, even more than alot!

2. My awesome friends!
My friends are so great and supportive! I don't know what I'd do without them.
(I'd probably die of boredom, or something like that) They're awsome, and I'm glad they always put up with me (no matter what!)

3. Our cool house
in our nice little neighborhood.

4. Our pets
Chloe always puts me in a better mood, she's something to talk to, she always listens (even though she can't understand a thing I say)

5. Being homeschooled
Even though everything keeps getting harder there are always little things we can do to not make it so overboared. Like drawing pictures and playing "Little games" and doing special stuff with the Grandma's, like cooking,sewing, and other stuff like that, that's why I'm thankful for it.

You should think of 5 things or lots more that you're thankful for this Thanksgiving, I know there's lots more I'm thankful for but it would take a really long time for me to type them all.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chapter 3

Don't worry, I'm not going to write a whole book with nothing else in between chapters. My next post will be something different before I write another chapter.

Chapter 3
When the two girls woke up, they decided what to have for breakfast, it took awhile but they finally settled on eggs, bacon, and toast (because that was about all Paige could make for breakfast)
“Unless you want cereal” Paige had said while they were deciding. “No thanks” Julia had said.
“What time are you supposed to be home?” Paige asked as they were eating.
“No time limit, they said they’d call when they wanted me home” said Julia
“Cool” said Paige.
“Are you done?” Paige asked
“ummm… yeah” said Julia “are you sure Paige asked
“Yup” was Julia’s happy answer

A little later Brooke called, she wanted to know if Julia and Paige could go up to her house, they checked to make sure they could and then they told Brooke that they’d be up in a few minutes. They walked up the big hill to Brooke’s house after waiting for the rain to calm down a little. When they got there they knocked on the door and Brooke opened it quickly. “Hi!” Julia and Paige said “hi!” said Brooke. They went inside and worked on stuff for Friends of Faith.
Then they went downstairs and played dolls. After that they did makeovers, while Paige got her makeover, Julia looked out the window and said “it’s raining again…really hard” then she smiled and said “cool!” they all laughed and played some more. Soon Julia had to leave, and so did Paige, so they called their parents to pick them up. When Paige walked into the house Jon looked at her and said “why is she back?” There was no answer so he just went back downstairs to watch his Saturday cartoons. Paige went into her room and drew a picture of a pretty garden then she got a book and read for awhile, but then she got a phone call…it was Hope.
“Hi!” said Paige
“Hi” said Hope
“Is something wrong?” Paige asked
“Kind of, I really need a date for the next meeting” said Hope
“Oh, when are you available next month?” asked Paige
“December 13” said Hope
“Okay, let me check with everyone else, then I’ll call you back okay?” said Paige
“Sure” said Hope
“See ya” Paige said happily
“Bye” said Hope.

thanks for reading.

The Story - Chapter 2

For Chapter One, Scroll Down...

Chapter 2

About an hour later the three girls got tired of Monopoly, and Brooke had to leave anyway… she called her mom, so that she wouldn’t have to walk up to her house in the rain. When her mom came to pick her up they all said their goodbyes and she left, which meant that Paige and Julia were left with nothing to do but talk about what they wanted to do.

“I’m bored” said Paige “okay, that’s like the millionth time you’ve said that!” said Julia “yeah, and that’s like, the millionth time you’ve exaggerated about it” said Paige.

“Do you want to make cookies?” Paige changed the subject. “What kind?” asked Julia “chocolate chip” said Paige “then yes, I would like that very much” said Julia. “You don’t care about making them you just want to eat them!” said Paige “so what?” said Julia “come on let’s go” said Paige.

A half hour later the cookies went into the oven, and pretty soon the house smelled good.

“What smells good?” said Jon investigating the smell, by now his weird show was over and he and Mike were downstairs playing video games. So Paige and Julia had taken complete control of the TV. They watched home makeover shows until the cookies were done. Then they happily munched away, 2 for each of them, with a glass of milk close by. Jon came by again, and took the biggest cookie. Paige just mumbled “isn’t that just like him” Julia giggled. “Do you have any cupcake mix?” asked Julia “are you kidding? Those cookies were big, you’ll survive.

“Let’s get into our pajamas!” said Julia “yeah!” said Paige. Julia got into her butterfly PJ’s in Paige’s room, while Paige got her animal print ones on in the bathroom. Then they had a pajama fashion show (Julia won) and then they pulled out a movie, they watched half of it before Paige’s mom told them to turn it off and go to bed, she told them they could whisper to each other until 10:00 PM which was fifteen minutes. They got themselves settled on the living room floor after an endless fight for Paige’s bed, which obviously neither of them got to sleep on anyway. After their fifteen minutes of giggling they finally went to sleep.

My Book

I love to write stories, just as much as I like to read them, so here's the first chapter of one of them. It's a story for Friends of Faith that I'm writing. My character is Paige...

Chapter 1
Twelve year old Paige Lavonte looked up at a cloud filled sky and said “it’s gonna pour…we better go inside” to her friend Brooke Arland “Yeah, let’s go” said Brooke. The two girls ran into Paige’s house where Paige’s two brothers were lazily watching TV. “What are you watching?”
Said Paige “What’s it matter to you?” said Paige’s 16 year old brother, Jon. “Just curious” said Paige. Paige and her family had moved from Paris to Pennsylvania 5 years ago, and were just starting to get rid of their accents. “Go play house or something” said Paige’s other brother, Michael (but everyone called him Mike)
“House is for like, two year olds!” said Paige “yeah!” said Brooke “I know, that’s why I suggested it, it seems to fit your age” said Mike. “That’s so funny I forgot to laugh” Paige said sarcastically before she and Brooke ran down the steps into the family room/computer and game room. Paige and Brooke went into the ‘game’ side of the big room and hopped on to the computer which sat next to an air hockey table which was covered in Jon’s board game. Brooke walked to the corner closest to the air hockey table and punched the big punching bag that was hanging there.

Paige looked at her email and saw a message from one of her friends that said

Hey Paige,
What’s happening with Friends of Faith lately?
I Haven’t seen the newsletter in weeks! How am I supposed to know when the next meeting is?
See ya,

Paige, Brooke, and four other girls had their own group called “The Friends of Faith” Each month they would elect a new group President and the President always thought of when and where the next group meeting should be (the meetings were usually sleepovers, so they didn’t happen that much) The President would also send out an email to all the girls which was their ‘newsletter’
The newsletter usually said what was new, it talked about their website and what was new on there, and it was also where they would say the time of the next meetings. And it was Paige’s turn to write the newsletter but she was really busy that month. Paige turned to the key board and grabbed the mouse then clicked the ‘Reply’ button. Then she looked at the key board again and wrote:

Sorry, Hope… I’ve been extremely busy lately!
Brooke and I will get that ready, okay?
When are you available for a sleepover/meeting?

Email me soon so I can set the date for the next meeting.

See ya,

Paige looked over to the punching bag where Brooke was still punching away. “Come here we have to do the newsletter” said
Paige “Ohhhhhh… ok” was Brooke’s less than enthusiastic answer. After about an hour they finished it, everything except the date of the next meeting was on there, at that spot, they just had a little note that said “we’ll get back to you on this.”

They sent it, to everyone. Hopefully they hadn’t made any mistakes. Just after that a car pulled into the drive way, by now it was pouring outside, about 30 seconds later the doorbell rang and the two girls ran to the door, when they got there, and opened the door and saw another member of the Friends of Faith, her name was Julia, “Hi!” said Paige “Hi” said Julia “You’re early” said Paige she had been expecting Julia to come over, but not this early. She was going to spend the night at Paige’s because her parents were going somewhere.
“My parents had to leave early” said Julia “what do you two want to do?” Paige asked Brooke and Julia “do you want to play Monopoly?” asked Paige “YEAH!” was both of their reply’s.

Watch for more of this story coming soon...

Welcome to My Room!

Welcome to my room, it's my little spot where I can do MY little things, I can read, play dolls, draw, all that stuff and who knows what else.

I made my picture on my door, I always do, that one is a more recent one I get tired of old ones and make new ones alot. So you got to see the latest.

That's my violin...I took lessons for a year, maybe 2 years ago or something like that, but then stuff happened and I had to stop, I want to start again though.

I think sitting down with a good book and hot chocolate in the fall is totally cool, 'cause it gets really cold and it's not so nice to play outside anymore, but it's usually nice so my brothers, some friends, and I sometimes play football, tee-hee. I'm getting better at it YAY!
But anyway, I do most of my reading at night, I like to keep a pile of books by my bed so I can just reach down and get one...whenever.

I have lots of different parts of me in my room, my bed is mostly my... pretty, girly, pink, and fuzzy(haha)...part of my room! And comfy too.

This is my little corner, to crochet, read (I do alot of reading), write, and sleep when I have sleepovers and I let my friend sleep on the bed(tee-hee).

My boom box, mostly stories on CD are usually coming from it, but sometimes my friends and I turn on some music on to dance, or do makeovers and stuff (it's a good thing my friends like my music) but if for some reason they didn't like a CD I put in, we always have the radio too.

well, did you like my room? I hope so!
