Good Thursday evening!
From what I’m seeing, I’m really enjoying WordPress so far. There seems to be a lot more to it than Blogger, which is pretty cool. Well, I’ll learn more as I go along.
So… I had not blogged at all since November, the week before Thanskgiving to be exact. So, I’m going to tell/show you all my Thanksgiving and Christmas went, as well as my birthday (which was on Saturday!), and finally, my New Year’s all went. Don’t worry… not many “worded details” happened during my holidays. It’s mostly pictures! So, enjoy!
For Thanksgiving, my parents and I did our annual tradition of heading to my grandparents’ and sharing a lot of food, conversation, laughter, memories, and just enjoying the time together.
This year, everyone on my dad’s side of the family brought something. I made the spirals!
My parents and me.
For Christmas, I didn’t really capture any “photos of the family” like I did for Thanksgiving, since both holidays are so close together.
I had a VERY nice Christmas this year. I received a lot of nice things! I’d say that this was definitely my first grown-up Christmas, with all the kitchen things I received. I love everything I got! I’ve already started using certain things like my new coffee maker, as seen in the photos. 🙂
And… those gifts were from my parents.
I ended up getting more from relatives when we all met up on Christmas Day.
And that was my Christmas! Everything was super nice, and there were some surprises along with what I wanted. I’m truly thankful for everything. 🙂
And for my birthday, which was four days after Christmas…
I got this nice pair of silver hoop earring and bracelet. I want to start getting back into jewelry!
I also received this copy Anne Frank (Ben Kingsley as Otto Frank), which I’ve rented from the library many, many times. I’m so glad to finally own it.
And here was my birthday cake this year:
And last, but not least, I will share with you all how I spent my New Year’s Eve, and then we’ll be “all caught up” on the holidays. 🙂
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I’ve been attending church again, and earlier in 2012, I found Evangel A/G and started getting involved.
This church has been a blessing for me, by the way! This is the same church where I was involved with the young adult group earlier in 2012 (which is taking a break, I guess?). It’s also the same church that I’ve also been going to Bible study’s when I can. And… when I don’t work on Sunday mornings (which is becoming a little more common for me lately!), I’ve been attending the worship services.
Well, on New Year’s Eve, I went bowling and to a N.Y.Eve party. It was a lot of fun.
Oh, and by the way! I discovered that I am A LOT better with bowling on the Wii than I am in real life. 😉
Also… I think this was my first night-out and big event with Evangel A/G, so it was a nice ice breaker for me to get to know people I met earlier this year, and to meet new people.
And…. that was my Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthday and New Year’s all in one!!! They were all good.
Now, I’m ready to start catching up on blogs, figuring out how to follow blogs under this account, and to start bloggong on a regular basis again. I’ve missed blogging, and it’s nice to be back. 🙂
Have a wonderful evening! I’ll be writing (and reading and responding to blogs as well!) SOON.
