A Time to Give Thanks

This Thanksgiving was wonderful! My mom made amazing food as always! And we got to spend it together. We also had been putting things were thankful for throughout the year in a jar and finally read them all. I thank God for giving me my family and along with allowing me to wake up everyday. I also thank God for the journey I have went through, it has made me stronger and my family stronger and closer.  Also for the mistakes I have made that have been lessons for me.

One thing, I want you to remember is that you may not have much, but there is always something to be thankful for. If you wake to see another day be thankful….

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope you had an amazing day! I am so thankful for my mom! Her and my dad have done so much for me. All the moms out there deserve a day all about them. Get your mom something, whether it’s just a hug and a “I love you”, a homemade card, a store bought card, flowers, chocolates, etc. Just let your mom know you appreciate them. To my mom, “I love you!”

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!

Happy Sibling’s Day

Happy Sibling’s Day! I want to say happy sibling’s day to my wonderful sister and brother!

I am so thankful for my two amazing sibling’s! They are so wonderful! We have our share fair of fights, but ultimately I love them no matter what! I am so proud of you guys in school, your maturity, and how much you have grown! I couldn’t of asked for better siblings. You both each have a lovely personality that makes you both unique and YOU! I love watching you guys grow and watching your faith in God grow. You guys are going to grow up and do amazing things, I just know it! I thank God for giving me such awesome siblings! No matter what I will always love them and be there for them!

Fun Family Vacation

This past week my family and I went on vacation. It was nice not having to worry about cancer and just enjoy ourselves. God has blessed us with a trip to Disneyland from my church, Valley Bible Fellowship. I am beyond grateful!

Stay-Cation

We spent a couple days in Vegas on the strip. We went to the new chocolate shop, HEXX, and got bags of chocolate and candy. We also went to Guy Fierri’s Restaurant which is amazing and has delicious food! We also went to the Bellagio to see  the “Under the Sea” theme flowers. On our last day, we spent the day at the pool. We got a cabana. My aunt from Ohio called my dad and said she was passing through Vegas and we could see our cousins.  My cousins came to our hotel and swam with us all day and then spent the night at our hotel. I was so excited to see them we haven’t seen them in 4-5 years.

Disneyland Vacation

We left early that morning and arrived in California that afternoon. We decided to start our day with lunch at Denny’s.

We then went to get our park tickets. We would be going to Disneyland that day and California Adventure the next. None of us had been to Disneyland before. We watched fireworks and the show at the castle. It was their 60th anniversary. We went on a few rides too.

The next day we headed to California Adventure. First went to get our fast pass for the Cars Ride. The ride that was on the top of our list! We then headed to the Hotel Tower of Terror. My sister and I rode that ride and it was scarier than I thought. I love roller coasters but the video and the unexpected up and down scared us. After that we walked through the Bugs Land and road all those rides. It was so much fun! Then came the driving lesson with Autopia! It was so funny my dad didn’t know my sister was in front of him and my brother. He kept thinking, “Who is that driving so badly”! We also went and seen a couple shows and took pictures with Elsa & Anna.

Finally, it was time for the Cars Land ride! My brothers dream came true, we got to ride in the Lightning McQueen car!       The ride took us through the town and pulled up next to another car and said, “Let’s Go Racing”! My dad doesn’t like roller coasters so the hills and riding on the wall freaked him out. We won the race though!

We finished our night off with ice cream and the Rain Forest Cafe for my sisters 13th birthday. How time flies! 11701222_395843987277660_4069557619814320637_n

It was so nice seeing my family smiling and laughing. Having such an amazing time! I am so blessed with the people I love!
