Thanksgiving Week Report

"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."
1 Chronicles 16:34
Well, I've tried to upload pictures a few times and I've had no success so it'll be just words today! (Though I will try and post photos later because I really liked some of them :)
I don't know if I've said this before, but we went up to our grandparent's house for Thanksgiving the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We had a great time, and the food was delicious! Then, Monday-Wednesday we went to the resort and Thursday we went to our other grandparents house (my moms parents) and had Thanksgiving with them. Of course, the food was very yummy and I think I might have eaten too many mashed potatoes.... I took some live, in-action pictures of my siblings and cousins playing ball (which I will put on the blog sometime) which was a new thing for me (my camera doesn't have an option on whether to increase/decrease shutter speed but the camera I'm borrowing does). And if you're wondering what shutter speed means how fast I take a picture. Like if it's at 500 it takes the picture as soon as I want it to with no lag and if it's at 10.7 (or something like that) it's a lot slower.
Enough with my photography terms...
We cleaned up the house, did laundry and had guests over Friday night and then on Saturday we went back to our Na-naw's house (mamma's mom) to host a baby shower for our Aunt. We played two different games. One was the babyfood game - which consisted of guessing (smelling or tasting) the ingredient of the 12 baby food jars - and then a baby letter-naming game - which was made up of writing down a girl name for all 26 letters of the alphabet in 2-3 minutes...with the person who had the most unique names given a prize. Of course, there were those delicious mints (that you only see available to eat at baby showers), crackers, veggies, fruits etc. and then the cake from Ukrop's Bakery!
So that's how our Thanksgiving went. Oops, I missed something! In the midst of this busyness daddy cleaned most of our carpets with the "Rug Doctor." That consisted of moving everything off the floor, spot-spraying, etc. This occured Friday - the day after Thanksgiving.
That's my report on our Thanksgiving week and I'll try and post some pictures soon.
Willingly Jesus',
P.S - For those who might be interested, we have an entertainment center (for your T.V, movies etc.), dvd player, super vhs player, and file cabinet that we would like to offer up....if you're interested and would like more information you can just email us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can! Thanks!
