Thanksgiving!

Yesterday  our family, jessica and rory and sadie, grandma and grandma, Scott, and uncle shawn and his kids came to our house! we had a huge feast and it was all great! we had appetizers at 2 p.m. then dinner at 3. after we all got sucked into watching this pilgrim movie that was supposedly an hour but turned out to be 3. lol.  then at 6 we had dessert! it was scrumpdiliumpsious! then jarom, joanna, myself, julia and josh went on the trampoline and played seven corners! it was funny but there was a lot of bending the rules or flat out "cheating" but it was all fun and games. and if you knew my family well you would know that i was the victim of most of the tricks. although we got jarom for a while.

the little brown dog is shawn's and jake was always chasing him around. it was hard enough getting this picture haha.
Everybody lounging around digesting! lol
i was forced to sit at the little kids table! was not fun at all! 
yummy food (appetizers) 
Sadie baby and I!

Jokes of Thee day!

Someone saw a blonde eating a Tootsie Roll Pop and asked her, "So, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll - Tootsie Pop?"

Without a thought, the blonde replied, "Beats me, but it took almost the whole day just to lick through the wrapper."

A blonde walked into a shoe shop and saw a pair of shoes made from alligator skin that she liked. "How much for these shoes?" she asked the store manager.

"$200", he replied.

"That's too expensive! Can't you bring the price down?"

The store manager said he couldn't, and got irritated when the blond persisted.

Finally after arguing with her for awhile he said, "There's a pond with alligators behind the store! Why don't you kill an alligator and get your alligator shoes for free?!" he yelled.

"Fine I will," the blonde replied.

After an hour, the manager got a bit worried and decided to go out and check on her.

When he arrived at the pond, he saw the blonde lugging a dead alligator and flinging it on the ground next to 6 other dead ones.

Before he could ask what she was doing, she wailed "Oh my gosh! This one is NOT wearing shoes!"

Field Trip!!!

Soooo... thursday i went to the aquarium on a marine biology field trip! It was a blast! I actually didn't know who was going so i had absolutly no clue who I was going to hang out with, but luckily I got to know a lot of people! It was sooooo much fun! Here are some pictures! ENJOY!


This is the only Albatross in captivity in the entire United States!  We learned about them right before the field trip.
Lunch! For the fishies!

This was cool! You could go under and watch sea life in the tide pool they recreated!


Otters!!!!!!!!!! They were sooooo cute! They all were asleep, and as they floated around they would bonk their heads on the glass but wouldn't even move! hahaha

This starfish is called the Garlic starfish, so i thought i'd take a pic in tribute to my hometown!

One of the awesome girls i got to hang out with!!

The Dori tank! tehe!

Penguins! We got to see them get fed! They were soo cute!


starfish... they were in this lab we got to see and we got to feed them as well!


Jellyfish!!!!! I waited all day for'em! you can't really see me though! haha

Haha! Kids area. It's actually really fun. I'm supposed to be a dolphin. there was a whale one too but some ten year old took it!

My teacher/chaperone. I'm glad i got to be in his group because he's smart and could answer a lot of my questions. Plus he's pretty goofy.


The demonstration of tide pools! you can stand underneath it!
