Post Holiday Game Night

Again, not very many pictures. I guess I was off my picture-taking game this weekend?? 

One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving is hanging out and playing games afterwards. But we didn't really get to do any of that this year, so we all decided we needed to get together again to play games!! Of course, we enjoyed way too much food, and really enjoyed each other's company!

Thanksgiving 2011

I always love Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays. And I barely even took any pictures. (Not even a single picture of Abbi!) I guess that's what happens when you are more worried about stuffing your face!!

I got a good laugh out of this. Only little boys will be thankful for flies, gold chains and trolls!

Book #34 - Drought

Pam Bachorz

Blurb: Ruby Prosser dreams of escaping the Congregation and the early-nineteenth century lifestyle that’s been practiced since the community was first enslaved.

She plots to escape the vicious Darwin West, his cruel Overseers, and the daily struggle to gather the life-prolonging Water that keeps the Congregants alive and gives Darwin his wealth and power. But if Ruby leaves, the Congregation will die without the secret ingredient that makes the Water special: her blood.

So she stays.

But when Ruby meets Ford, the new Overseer who seems barely older than herself, her desire for freedom is too strong. He’s sympathetic, irresistible, forbidden—and her only access to the modern world. Escape with Ford would be so simple, but can Ruby risk the terrible price, dooming the only world she’s ever known?
(From Goodreads)

Opening Sentence: "I wish it would rain."

Length: Medium - 386 pages

Notes: 3.5 stars. I didn't have high expectations because of the reviews on Goodreads, but I actually kind of really liked it. I had a hard time putting it down, and the concept kind of drew me in. I think I would have given it a solid 4 stars, but the ending left me with that feeling of wanting something more.

Random quote:I'm done waiting for someone, even my father, to save me. Today I'm the one who will be doing the saving.

Recommend: yes

She Makes Him Laugh

I love seeing these two interact.  Easton loves Abbi so much - you can already tell - and she can make him laugh like nothing else.  Here is proof!

One thing that I pray for every day is that these two are best friends. I love seeing them interact together. It makes my heart happy!
