The Big Fat Update!


So this past month or so, I have been moving from the southwest to the Midwest. There has been so much going on.
I spent Thanksgiving with some church friends which was a lot of fun. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. This was my first traditional Thanksgiving where everyone sat at the table and there was a lot of family and friends. Of course there was a lot of friends in my past and there was a lot of fun, but there was hardly a time where I can remember eating at the table with everyone (thanks to my step moms traditions). But nonetheless, It was a bittersweet time for we didn't know if we would see are beloved friends again.
After Thanksgiving we drive many miles to our new destination, The Heartland. Our big family spent a few weeks living there, without much of our things. We had to move on emergency. At Christmas break, we go back to the southwest to get our things in a big U-Haul truck. Our Grandfather from the West Coast came to give us a helping hand. And what a helping hand he gave us! God Bless him! We would not have been able to do anything if it wasn't for him! He got food for us and tools and to top it all of, he drove the truck to our new location! Oh he was a huge blessing to us. Before we went back, our delightful Thanksgiving friends invited us to dinner. We had a wonderful feast of lamb, pork chops, potato, veggies, and loads of Christmas cookies and her very famous apple pie! MMMM, the American dream, to have Melanie Staabs apple pie!!!The next day we head back to our new home.
Now at this point it is only three or four days till Christmas. Our Grandfather helps put things together and goes back home. He left just in time because we had a huge blizzard on Christmas Eve! To this day there is still ice and snow! It was a great Christmas, our first one in the Heartland. We spent it with our Uncles and aunts and our baby cousin. A great time we had.
There is so many nice people here, I am not used to the friendliness. We got stuck in the snow and a very nice man started towing people out for just some tips! That was just too kind. People smile and have small talk with you. I am very happy to be here. Even though I just started school and I am the new kid, I find that everyone is more or less nice. I moved to a growing community and new kids come every week. So I am not the only one. We moved in next door to some of the nicest people around.
There is a girl my age and one of my brothers age who started the same day as us! They are lots of fun and I feel privileged to be their friend.
This is my update and I will keep everyone updated now that I am back online.
