How original is it to do a list of things you're thankful for????
Oh well, I think I'll do it anyway.

1 person I am thankful for: My mom!(If I could add more, BELIEVE me there would be more)

1 pet that I am thankful for: CHLOE!!!

1 type of food that I am thankful for: Mashed potatoes with gravy YUM!

1 activity that I am thankful for: scrapbooking

1 game that I am thankful for: ultimate frisbee

That is only a TINY bit of what I am thankful for. But why not, right?

Interesting facts about books... and me.

This has been going around but I thought it might be fun. I have to put down 7 facts about books and me, only I have to put them together. Let's see how this goes.

1. I've always loved to read, I also love to write. When I read something I not only pay attention to the story, but how exactly it is written. I've seen PLENTY of different techniques by now and I've tried to combine them. I hope to be an author someday.

2. One of my favorite author's name is Nancy Rue. That's just funny because it sounds so much like Nancy Drew. I was watching a little video with Nancy Rue in it and she said she used to LOVE to read Nancy Drew, so she thought it was totally funny when she got married and her last name was Rue.
Nancy Rue write's GREAT books for girls my age and under, like the "sophie series" (which I just finished reading for the second time) and the "Lily Series" (which I read last year-this year)

3. My mom says she wants me to read different authors, but I like the one's I'm already reading. Here lies the problem. I don't want to read different authors but I guess I'll just have to try. How else will I ever find out if I like different books or not. My friend keeps pushing me to read "the Christy Miller series" I might have to try that.

4. Unlike my mom at Hospitality Lane, I strongly dislike reading out loud but sometimes I read a verse or two out loud at bible study. I'm working on it.

5. I like to read odds and endsy stuff too. My mom read "Sutter's Cross" out loud to us last year (I think it was last year) anyway. I LOVED IT! Oh that is a wonderful book! She also read the books "Airborn" and "Skybreaker" which are 2 in the same series. They're really good too.

6. Because I read a lot I'm really good at spelling! Yesterday I got 32 out of 35 words right! I really do get a lot out of reading.

7. This year I read the "Friends for a season" series. Those are good too. I loved them and got much enjoyment out of them. I thought it was really cool that there were only 4 books because there are only 4 seasons. Each book was in a different season. that's really neat.

So if you liked this you should do one yourself! If you want too, than I TAG YOU!!!

Here's the deal,
My Mom won't let me get the Christmas tree out until after Thanksgiving, but the thing with me is once it has snowed or done anything even a tiny bit like Christmas, it gets me in the mood! So I've decorated my COMPUTER Christmas like. Okay, okay, it's not MY computer but I call it that because I use this one and my mom and dad use the OTHER one. But anyway... I started by changing my desktop to this picture of Kimmy in the snow:

Then, as you can see,
I changed my backround and picture for my blog!
Love it!
After that I made cute lil' decorations for the moniter and keyboard!
Look at these!

So now, I'm feeling better!
SOMETHING in our house has now entered Christmas land!

Come back soon!

A Fun Last Day of Work

Ummmm....Becky K. Here....I was supposed to post this some time ago...
Sorry Chelsea. I always preview Chelsea's posts and then post them.
Somehow I missed this one.
Well, enjoy...

Yup! Yesterday was finally the day, the day that the entertainment farm that I work for closed for the season! And did we ever have fun. I was working at the **don't laugh** condiment table, and my friend was working in the kitchen at the cash register. The condiment table is right next to the kitchen and there is a little window right next to the cash register. Yesterday was pretty slow, so we talked while at each of our positions, it was cool. The next nice thing that happened was, because we weren't busy my friend, her sister, and I got done with work EARLY! Earlier when I had been talking with my friend she told me that she, her sister, and 2 other friends would be going through a "flashlight maze" (at the farm there is a huge maze made in the corn field) so she invited my brother and I to go along. I called my mom and it worked out!

So the deal with the "flashlight maze" is you go in the maze after dark with a flashlight of course, and you have to find your way out. That is what we did. Eventually we got out, and immediatly went for hot chocolate, after that we got on a "hay ride" which is actually a great big wagon that takes you all around the farm (no hay involved). We went on that and then went home, we had a great time!
