Christmas Miracles Have Never Been So Obvious.

What a Christmas.

I'm writing this on my new laptop! I was obviously a good boy this year.
I also got some camoflauge and what nots. And the much needed cash.

Riley got a load of stuff. Lucky kid. But I got pretty stacked this year, especially since there was nothing I asked for.

My whole family came to my house which is nice but only for a day. We had a great meal with a lot of fun and surprises.

First my niece, Mia Grace, shows up wearing an "I'm the Big Sister" shirt. Michael and Ashley are expecting.

Then we had our little overalls tradition. My grandmaw started a tradition where we pass around a pair of overalls every christmas. Whoever gets the overalls has to wear em all day. Then next year they have to add some kind of decoration to em and write a poem revealing who they are giving them too.
Well this year Mark's wife wrote the poem. Her added decoration was a pacifier. Mark and Anna are expecting. Also.

What a day.. In August I will have two new nieces/nephews. Wow. But hey, I got a new laptop.
Now everyone's expecting Matthew and Sarah to make an announcement but they said they didn't have one.

Until tonight.

They didn't tell everyone earlier because Riley didn't know. Matthew and Sarah are expecting.

By August I could have 3-6 new nieces/nephews.

But keep this on the Down Low if you happen to read it. I don't think it's a secret but it's best kept quiet I guess.

Here's your blog Mrs. Jenn.

I'm Back in the Saddle Again.

I'm BAAAAAACK in the saddle again.

Well that might be a lie since I never find time to blog.

This past two weeks have seemed like the worst weeks ever, despite the great promises of Thanksgiving break and hunting.
It seems that my mom and I have stumbled upon an affliction of bad luck recently that we'll blame on a mirror that broke itself. She had the hardest time cooking for thanksgiving and I've just had little things go very wrong. I won't go into detail but just some examples are burnt pies, overflowing pies, broken window, and spilt tea. ugh................................

Well hopefully we'll overcome it all in this new week. We need our spirits lifted before the Christmas crazyness.

Tomorrow I head to Jackson with Ethan for the all-star football game which I am very excited about. I just hate to miss basketball games. I have know idea what to expect this week. I may or may not get playing time but I know I'll give my all. I know HistoryTeach will miss me so hopefully this blog will fill that hole in her hard, black heart.

Catch you later,
Joe l
