turkeys and such...

what a great day.. heath and rhianon came over.. and helped cook the most wonderful thanksgiving dinner... we had two turkeys - one deep fried thanks to heath.. and one that ben bbq'd.. everything was wonderful and delicious.. (i think by the time the turkeys were done we were all so hungry.. that i don't even think we took one picture of either turkey)
my sister and her husband and the kiddies came over.. and we went to the park, and drew chalk on the floor.. and had a great time..
my older brother and his girlfriend made it over later.. and we played a crazy game of poker.. in which i did not win... so really it wasn't all that great..

either way.. it was an incredible day with family and friends.. which i am so thankful for.. and in trying to recover... i slept in till noon today.. God bless the four day weekend..

All she wants to do is dance...

Chara and I went up to a wedding way up in Newhall this past weekend. Quite simply it was the best wedding ever. It was Darrius and Shannon's wedding, a couple of friends from my work. It was held at Shannon's uncle's house which was amazing. It was the kind of house that is so big and so nice that youy have to name it. The actually wedding was nice and short and i didn't even get a chance to do the crossword puzzle they put in the back of the little thing they hand you that shows all the stuff happening in the wedding.

anyway, the wedding was beautiful, the reception was great. We were at the best table; Table 13 and we brought the fun. After 3 tequila, 2 kamikaze and 1 screwdriver for me and a whole lot of wine for chara we were dancing with the stars on the dance floor. Now if you know Chara she would say she's not a dancer, but apparently she is quite the dancer she just needs a little wine to bring it out of her.

Now Chara will be mad at me for posting this as she told me not too, but its such a great picture of her, and we had the best time dancing, so i'm going to take the risk.

You take the good, you take the bad

today was black tuesday - test day.. let's just say i don't want to talk about it..

one good thing about today - voting day.. yes.. that's right.. today we vote for things.. which only makes me very happy because after today the five a day political calls to my house will stop.. seriously.. no more calls from arnold schwarzenegger and barbra boxer.. those two are so needy..
