Arrived in Texas!

  
After we arrived in Texas we decided to all dress up and go out to eat as a team! So the Arkansas Tech spirit squads, both the cheerleaders and dancers decided to go to this really nice restaurant in Copperas Cove called Little Italy! It was obviously Italian food and it was so good! We all found stuff that we liked. I got the lasagna and a salad and it was so good. We never take team pictures because not everyone likes each other but I was able to get everyone to take a good group selfie eating out good food!

Headed to Texas

  
This picture was taken right before we loaded the bus to head to Copperas Cove, Texas for the Heart of Texas Bowl game in which our Wonderboys will be playing Eastern New Mexico State. We were all so excited and can’t wait for this amazing experience! The drive on a bus to Copperas Cove is nine hours. We ended up stopping like three times and watched about five movies on the way there. The bus had a bathroom, a tv and DVD player, and electrical outlets so that we could charge our phones. It was really nice and I hope that we can take a charter bus to more sporting events.

Heart of Texas Bowl

  
As I sit here and get ready to write down my final test schedules, I have to write down the fact that I will be going to the Heart of Texas bowl!!! I am so excited because the Wonderboys have done better this season than they have ever done before! We had won eight games and lost three when we got invited to go to the Heart of Texas bowl! The other team invited is Eastern New Mexico State University. They had only won six games and lost five. So we automatically know we will have a good game. I am super excited to see how the game will turn out and see how well we will cheer our boys to victory!

Mimi’s hands

  
Every year we wonder how many more Thanksgiving or Christmases we will have with our beloved Mimi. She is ninety four or ninety five and she is still kicking! She can’t see at all any more but her voice is very strong and she can is as sharp as a whip. She told us that she plans on living until she is one hundred years old and then she is checking out. Haha she is the craziest. I love her hands. They are so smooth yet so experienced with so much. Those hands taught my grandma how to cook, whose hands taught my mom to cook. Her hands are always firm but so soft. They have so much character just like her.

Thanksgiving 2015

 Food food food!! This is why I love this time of year! My moms side of the family can cook sooooo good! We had so much food and so many delicious desserts! It was great to spend the day with family that I haven’t seen since last Christmas! I got to see my cousins for the first time in a long time and I loved every minute of it! We laughed and had fun and ate lots of food. It was the first time Holliday I’ve spent with my mom since she’s been home too. It made me so happy to be with the people that I love the most. I am so thankful for them.

Christmas tree at home 

  
My house is unlike many houses around this time of year. It’s not even thanksgiving, and my grandma has put up every bit of Christmas decorations up in the house. We have three Christmas trees, a huge mantle piece, and a stair garland that does all the way up the stairs. I love it this time of year! The air is cold, the music of Christmas fills the radio and commercials, and the stores are full of gifts about to be given! I can’t wait for Christmas and I can’t wait for the family to be together again!

Throwback about 25 years

  
My parents have been divorced for almost 16 years now. My grandmother sent me this picture today and it put a smile on my face. Seeing that my parents used to be so incredibly happy at one time just amazes me. It makes me happy. I sent this picture to my mom, who is going through a rough depression, said that the picture made her smile and made her think of the happiest time in her life. It is bitter sweet because I know how happy they once were but I know that everything happens for a reason! It’s good to see that they didn’t end thinking that their marriage was completely terrible. It’s heart warming knowing that they were both crazy in love at one point and thy are quick to admit it.
