Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving this year was at Grandpa’s house. It was a very bittersweet Thanksgiving because my sister-in-law Ammarrette was not there in physical form. It will have been the first major holiday she would not be here for. Every Thanksgiving, she would always make her brothers’ favorite foods, like German chocolate cake and macaroni and cheese. She always would make collard greens for me, she knew they were my favorite. We didn’t have any of those foods this year. 

After we blessed the food, Prentyce asked everyone to say something they were thankful for this year. It was a really nice activity that I think we should do every year. Our brother-in-law Steve, Ammarrette’s husband, cried during this part and it made me cry. I don’t know what I would do if I lost Prentyce. I can’t still imagine what he is going through. They say that the holidays are the hardest for me how lost someone. I bet that is probably true.

We came early to help Joyce and Grandpa prepare for the guests. Prentyce had to read up on how to fry a turkey and that was fun for him learning how to do something new. I think we might have to get a turkey fryer. It cooked the turkey so fast! I also had to learn how to cook yams on the fly. And surprisingly, it actually wasn’t very hard and everybody said they liked it! Yay! I told Prentyce I am still refusing to host Thanksgiving until I get a kitchen with double ovens! Ha!

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And, I’m sorry this post is so late. I feel like I’m just finally getting my life back together after our honeymoon and the holidays. Better late than never, right?

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

For Prentyce’s 21st birthday, I threw him a surprise party. It was super fun and all the best friends came and stayed to hang. We ate, played games, and sang happy birthday. But, the funnest part was karaoke!

I didn’t think Jeremy would even do one song, but he did quite a few. This is his first and best song. He actually scored the highest out of everyone. This is a first of my karaoke series.

Thanks again to everyone that came to celebrate. And no worries, your karaoke video will be on YouTube soon too! =) Haha!

UFB Champ Game Highlights

I did this as a project for my video editing class. Mostly edited with Final Cut Pro, but I added the watermark with Adobe Premiere Elements and used Windows Movie Maker to size it down to fit on YouTube… like anyone cares. Taped and edited by yours truly.

* I think I spelled Cheddarbob’s name wrong. Oops. Someone told me it was spelled that way…

UFB made it into the playoffs…

My boyfriend plays for a flag football team with our high school friends and some other miscellaneous people. They have changed their team name THREE TIMES! First, it was Young Guns, then the Las Vegas Aces (I thought this was the lamest one), and now it is Unfinished Business, aka UFB. I guess it is okay… I thought Young Guns was just so fresh, but oh well. Not my team. They have had the same jersey though, good thing their team name isn’t on their jerseys. Anyways… they are really good. They play in the C League (I think).

Well, this past Sunday was playoffs and it was so darn exciting.

PLAYOFF GAME #1: I only got mad in the beginning because the other team was so excited about predicting one effin’ play. Give me a break. Losers. I swear. #12 on their team was so ruuuuude and looked like a girl. He wasn’t rude to my boyfriend (he was covering him later on), but it was so bad that I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. He did something to somebody and I blurted out F*ck you! when the referee was right there. Oops! I didn’t get in trouble for that one though. Best moment in the game was when Keyo was saying Tackle me! Tackle me! to someone on the opposing team. LOL. That was so hype. In the end, they lost anyways. Yay! Willie didn’t shake anyone’s hand, he was mad at them.

 

Playoffs - Babe and someone

 

Playoffs - Anthony

PLAYOFF GAME #2: I got mad this game. They totally ripped our QB Anthony’s shirt. I mean, they called some of the times they were pulling shirts as holding, but NOT ALL OF THEM (I have video footage) AND that totally pisses me off. I mean, the referees were like blind. She (a female ref) was all mad that I was all yelling (no cuss words, mind you!), just OH MY GOD, C’MON and stuff like that when Anthony had fallen down because of that stupid bastard (I can’t remember if it was #4 or #17). The team got mad at me, sorry guys, but Willie came over and calmed me down. I was still mad after that though because the opposing team had a foghorn and a cowbell, which they only used when our team was on offense in order to mess up their concentration. Those pieces of caca lost anyways, go use your foghorn now you bastards. Plus: Keyo kicked the ball 5 yards. LOL. Willie didn’t shake anyone’s hands again.

 

Playoffs - Ben, Kevin, David

 

Playoffs - Keyo Kick

So basically, all that means is that UFB IS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME! The crazy thing is that they are going against people that also went to our high school, either from 2003-2004 or 2006 and later. Crazy, right? Western VS. Western — Battle of the Dubb.

Go team. Game is next Sunday! =) The day before my Daddy’s birthday.
