   Sorry, sorry, sorry for not posting in forever!! Seems like we`ve been really busy lately but maybe that`s just me. Anyway, I wanted to post about Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving but that didn`t really work out so, here is my Thanksgiving post. I have so so much to be thankful for. I don`t know where to start. Here are just a few: music, family, friends, food (of course), an amazing, supportive, fantastic church family, quoting movies with my sister, laughter, joy, tears, stars singing God`s praise... and on and on it goes. But the thing that I am most thankful for above everything else is that God didn`t pass me by but embraced me as a son. A holy, almighty God who would have been perfectly just to turn the other way and send us to hell, showed love for worthless sinners like us and doesn`t even remember that we did anything wrong. He wiped my record clean. That`s something to be thankful for. THANK YOU JESUS!!
Before I end this post I would like to show you some pics of how we spent our thanksgiving:

All the men played football in the back while the feast was being prepared. =)

The Big Fella is clearly going to catch this ball and take it in for six points!

Eddie Joe could... go.... all... the.... WAY!!!
This is only some of the amazing food that was waiting for us when we came in...
...prepared by the amazing Grandma!!
        We all had a great Thanksgiving together. It was also our little sister Peaches` first one with us. She came home to our family from Ethiopia at the end of March and she is such a little joy in our life. And this Thanksgiving marked the day that she was brought into the transition home Hannah`s Hope one year ago. So, it was a special day for us all. We are all so thankful for her. God is good. I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and, well, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Just kidding. :)

     Yeah. It`s hard to believe but me and my brother turned fifteen on Sunday. And yes that means we are old enough to get our learner`s permits. O____O   But don`t worry, we haven`t gotten them yet. Soon though.... very soon. Driving aside, we really did have a fantastic birthday. On Saturday we went to Starbucks with who else but the band. After grabbing our coffee we went and had an epic jam session. Here are some pictures:

              After that, we headed back home for guy time with a bunch of our friends. It consisted mostly of air hockey, John Smith, capture the flag, and foursquare. Here are some pictures from our evening:


          Well, we are both so thankful for our family and friends who made it such an awesome birthday. Have an excellent night and watch out for us driving on the road. Be a twinkie not a ding-dong...

Something Greater

       As you may know, both of us love music. We love to play it, write it, listen to it, you name it. So, once me and T-bird became pretty experienced in the instruments we play, (T-bird: piano, trumpet, a little guitar; me: guitar, trombone, a little piano) we decided to form a band with a couple of our friends. Our band is called Something Greater and I decided to post a video of us playing one night at church. On the drums, we have "South Pole", (looooong story) on the electric guitar is "The Big C", playing the piano is T-bird, and me completely destroying the song on the microphone. Without further ado, here is the song "Lights" from Something Greater:

Last Slice of Pizza

     I was supposed to post a Tim Hawkins video yesterday because it was Tim Hawkins Tuesday. However, yesterday was filled with school, school, school, choir, school, school, basketball practice, school, school, and last, but not least, school. So, instead of making you die of laughter from Tim, here`s a video from Julian Smith that`s stupid but somehow makes me laugh every time I watch it.
