What Happened to Thanksgiving?

It seems that the media wishes Thanksgiving didn't exist. They try many different ways to cover it up. By changing the message, or by just plain glazing it over.

Example 1: Christmas Kickoff
This local radio station is one that I like to listen to. Every Holiday season they play only holiday music. They claim the title of "The south bay's home for the holidays". This is fine. But what is strange, is that they kickoff the Christmas season the day before Thanksgiving! They wait until we are on Thanksgivings doorstep, then pretend its Christmas... I enjoy listening to the holiday music, but I find it sad that Thanksgiving is lost in the shuffle.

Example 2: Festive Focus
Dr. Laura every year on the day before thanksgiving, holds a corny joke day in place of her show. People of all ages call in with a corny joke, then Dr. Laura questions them on how they are celebrating Thanksgiving... which doesn't mean "What are you thankful for?" It means "Where are you eating turkey?" While this is a big part of the holiday, the meaning of Thanksgiving, is Thanks.

5 Things that make me gasp...

That the Election is over... (and that Obama is going to Be President)

That we are in the 11th month of the year... (where did the rest go?)

We are closer to Christmas then Labor day... (only 50 shopping days left!)

That Jared is going to be 18... (I could've seen that coming)

That God saved me!!! (Praise the Lord)

Feel free to add to the list =)

My sisters had a friend over and… well lets just say they weren’t getting along to well. Thankfully all three of them took kindly to the idea of sewing when I suggested it, so each of them sewed a pillow (with assistance). Memories in the making?

Jessica Hoefling

She is hilarious people. Once she impersonated the hair cutter. She was asked “do you want a haircut?” (in a chinese accent) Jessica said “no” and was refuted with “oh, yes you do.” It doesn’t look that funny on paper… but it cracked me up.

The best thing was most definitely the rain. I love how it smells, and sounds, and feels… and IS! Rain is certainly a beautiful thing.

A day with friends

Making cupcakes and decorating them,
Making masks and taking pictures with them,
A photo shoot in the backyard,
Getting candy,
Doing crazy acrobatics,
Spinning in the rain,
The list goes on…
