I'm back!!

Hey everybody! I'm sorry for neglecting to make many posts recently....much less any interesting ones.

Anyhow, I just got back from Michigan late last night. I had a good time, but I'm so happy to be home and I can not wait for church tomorrow night. But yeah, MI was cool too--pretty much literally. We had like maybe 2 feet of snow there and it got down into the single digits during the day. It makes NC feel like the Bahamas. Snow was nice to have for a few days, but I would not want to live around it all winter. It seems to be such a hassle. One day there was a blizzard and we could literally see maybe one 10-20 feet ahead.....makes for lots of fun driving.

Every year, just a few days before Christmas, my grandparents reserve a 'block' of rooms at a hotel for all of the family to go stay for a night. We all have draw names that we have to buy gifts for and it's lots of fun. It's always really crazy and loud though, haha....

I had tons of fun with my cousins. We went in the jacuzzi outside when it was snowing...now that is tons of fun. We also played lots of games and stayed up until like 3AM goofing around. It's too bad that I only get to see them once a year.

We stayed with my grandparents for the rest of the time we were there. They are amazing too. My grandpa(the one who had the heart attack) is such an amazing, sweet, funny Christan man. He is so joyful and happy through everything, even with all of the medical things he is going through. And he is one of the funniest persons I know. He is such an example to me and love him so much. My grandma is awesome too. She spoils us rotten, haha. She is such a hard worker and always is thinking of the little things. You will never starve at her house :) She took my sisters and me shopping and let us buy some stuff.....that was fun.

So, yeah, I had a good time, but I'm also really happy to be back and I really missed church on Sunday.

Let's see...what else do I have to say?

Oh, I was so music deprived while I was away. I was not allowed to bring my guitar with me. But luckily, my rockin' cool cousin came to my rescue and let me play his guitar.

Christmas is 2 days away and I still gotta get a gift for my dad and Sophie. So, that probably means that I will have to go shopping today. Fun times.....

I can't wait for the Christmas eve service tomorrow. I'm sure it'll be amazing.

I was up until 1:30 AM this morning reading about something that was incredibly interesting to me in the Bible. I almost don't want to say what it was because I want to talk about it with some of you guys when I see you next. But yeah, it is sooooooo interesting--to me at least. I'm still trying to figure it out.

When I was in MI, I was talking to one of my cousins and got into to several deep discussions with him. He really got me thinking on some things. Oh, that was so neat. I am reminded about how much I enjoy a deep discussion about the Bible....even if it is a little over my head, haha!

I feel like posting some lyrics, but this is getting a little long, so maybe I should stop.

Oh and I'm not going to post pictures of Brandon and BJ's party since several people did already and I don't want to bore you with the same pictures again :)
