Giving Thanks

I had a pretty awesome day.  I got all my work done so tomorrow we can do fun Thanksgiving things at school.  When I got home, I did my homework quickly then played on my new tire swing all afternoon.  

I am extremely excited for Wednesday.  Every year on the day before Thanksgiving, my mom, sister and I wake up early and go shopping for canned goods for Thanksgiving.  Then we go donate all the food to a food drive, for families who might not be able to have a good Thanksgiving meal.  After that, we find a restaurant and have breakfast there.  We always leave a big tip to share how thankful we are for what we have.  This will be our 5th year doing this and I always have so much fun.  Here are some pictures from last year.

We are always very happy when we can share our blessings with others.

Halloween 2012

I had so much fun trick-or-treating this year!  I dressed as a possessed rag doll and my costume was the best!!  My little sister was a fairy.  I wish Halloween happened 12 times a year!  It is definitely my favorite holiday.

My mom and I made my costume.

My mom does NOT like this picture.  She said I've grown up too much!

This is me with my mom and little sister.  My mom was a fairy, too.
