Santa! Santa! Santa!

  • Today is Christmas!

    When I was a young child it seemed like it took FOREVER for Christmas to get here. But now, every time I turn around it’s already Christmas time! I love it but, it also makes me a little sad because time FLIES. I’m getting older and I kinda don’t like that. lol. BUT…it’s all good!

    My day was amazing as my Christmases usually are. I’m so thankful to have such a BIG and happy family. We’ve all had our ups and downs but, in the end, they are all such blessings…the good times AND the bad. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother. They are all my half siblings but, they’ve been there since I was born so they are real to me. Its that whole “his hers and ours” thing. That ALWAYS seems to confuse people (i usually end up drawing my family out in stick figures to explain it). My parents have THE biggest hearts. They would do anything for anyone. Seriously. And i’m not just saying that because they are MY parents either. Anyways, back to my siblings. I never really LIVED WITH any of them because they were pretty much grown or living with their other parent (me and my 3 sisters have the same daddy and me and my brother have the same mama) so i’m kinda sorta an only child. Hence the reason i’m so easily entertained. Hey, when you have no one to play with at home you have to learn to entertain yourself! Haha. ANTYWAYSSS, (gah ADD!) every Christmas we always wake up and open presents at my house, me mama and daddy, and then we make our rounds to the other kids houses. My oldest sister, Kerri (36), has 4 kids. My brother Arty (36) has 3 kids, my sister Vicki (33) has 3 kids and my other sisters Cathy (27) has 1 (the new little baby i’ve been talking about NON STOP lately). SOOOO as you can see, we have a fairly large family! I love it SO much though.

    Ok, moving on.

    Today was indeed special because well, of course it’s Christmas, but it also marks 5 years that John and I have been dating! Now to me, thats a LONGG time. Don’t get me wrong the time has defo flown by and it feels like just yesterday we were a “cutest couple” in our high school newspaper. Five years ago today, we had our first Christmas together. We weren’t dating because I was set on “staying single until after Christmas” (fyi-because I “dated” a guy that was literally psycho and i was tired of boys and NOT looking to date). Yes, I was young. Well, I was 15. He was 18. My parents had a rule that he had to be gone from our house by 11pm on weekends and 10pm on weekdays. He didn’t come over during the week much though…i was veryyy busy with dancing or cheering or some kinda sport or activity 24/7 so we pretty much just saw each other on the weekends. So….it was Christmas night and he was leaving my house. We had a glass door on our house at the time and i was telling him bye standing in the doorway. I remember him saying “Ok its 11:01 and i know i’ve got to be gone from here but, I can’t wait any longer..?” Of course I smiled but me being the joker I am said “Huh? I haven’t even heard you ask me anything!” Then is when he pulled the whole “Will you go out with me?” question. Yeah, cheesy i know but, he was super shy and that was the way to ask someone out back then! It was sweet to me ;) So, five years later here we are. Never broken up, happy as can be, we get along SO well (dont get me wrong we’ve had our disagreements but they never last), we laugh non-stop, and we are best friends above all else. Now we’re 5 months away from seriously sealing the deal with some wedding vows!! Yes! Im SO excited and i am so so SO thankful that I have found my “one and only” already. It’s such a blessing from God. I know we are young but then again, we really aren’t THAT young. We know what we want in life and we are ready to start our lives TOGETHER, with careers, and waking up to each other every morning…coming home to each other at the end of the day, and sooner or later having some “mini us” :)) I Love him with all of my heart and I would literally give my LIFE for him. I couldn’t go on without him. When you have someone that’s been apart of your life for so long and means so much to you they BECOME a part of YOU. I know i may sound crazy but believe me. Its true. And its truly incredible! I LOVE YOU!

    Okie doke, speaking of HIM, he is on his way over so we can exchange gifts and have some fun. Wii, here we come!

    I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas thoroughly and don’t forget what and why you’re celebrating! God Bless you all!

    MUCH <3
