Holiday Fun

Auf Englisch übersetzen => Nikolaus-HamsterCreative Commons License Marco Verch via Compfight

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays because you spend time with your family and celebrate Jesus’s birthday. When i’m with my dad’s family in New York we have fun traditions some are we have a big feast which is seven courses of  appetizers, Italian food, fish, wine and cheese, chicken, turkey, and dessert. We also watch football then open presents this usually lasts from 4:00 to 11:30. When I go to my mom’s family in Missouri we eat dinner around 5:oo after that we go downstairs have dessert and open presents. After that we just hangout for a while then everyone leaves.

Thanksgiving is another one of my favorite holiday’s because you spend time with your family, have good food and give thanks for all that you have. Some traditions that I have is we always have the same food like green bean casserole, stuffing, mash potatoes, rolls, turkey, corn casserole, cranberry sauce and much more. In order to make these recipes  you need lots of ingredients.

The last holiday I choose was Easter. I chose Easter because it celebrates lent. Some traditions are Easter egg hunts, a big dinner we also stay outside almost all day. Also we have a big sleepover and stay up all night. Some things we do at the sleepover is nails, hair dye, hair style, movies, and lot’s more.

Helping the Helpless

Our project is where we are doing a basketball and volleyball camp to raise donations for homeless people around us.

I’m feeling nervous about my project because what if we don’t get it finished in time. For example we have to write, edit, and sent out a lot of emails by a specific date. Another emotion is excited because I get to help people and meet them. For example when we go to a homeless shelter we get to meet a lot of new people. The last emotion is worried because I hope we can do it all right. For example we can’t mess up with talking to principal about the project.

For the month of November, my major goals are sending out all the emails, getting the date set up for the gym.  

See my Visual Aide for more information.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is a very important holiday its when you spend time with your family and be thankful for what you have. Every year for thanksgiving my family has a few traditions some of them are very year I ether fly to New York, Long island or Missouri, Kanas City because thats were my family is and were my parents grew up. Another one is before we have dinner we go around the table and tell what we are giving thanks for also we say grace before we eat. The last tradition my family does is after dinner we all gather in the living room and talk for a little while about how our life is going.

My family has tons of recipes all the way back from the 19’00s like all the things you eat whether its cornbread or mash potatoes they ether come from the store or one of your family members make it. Whenever I go to thanksgiving my grammy makes every thing like mash potatoes, stuffing, turkey,green bean casserole, corn casserole and much more. You can get recipes from the internet from the store or one of your family members or friends you can also get them from farmers or store owners.Thanksgiving Recipes

I know a lot of people that go I’ve bent here once and its crazy.

Spooky House

House of Many Shadows Vince Young via Compfight

Once there was a house on Canal Street in the Bronx. There were a lot of robberies in that one neighbor hood. Kids were running one house to another. The school buses were worn down and worst of all, there was murder and gun shots. There was graffiti on the walls and windows were shattered and broken. Everything was worn down. You go into a creepy old house and see blue goo on the wall.  You hear a noise, but see no one.

But the real question is what happened to the people that live there ??  Comment below.

Halloween Night

Activity 1

In this topic, I learned that you can use CC-licensed materials as long as you follow the license conditions. I still need to know that when you get older, if you don’t follow the CC-license conditions, then you could go to jail. If you were in college, than you could get kicked out of college. This information is helpful to me because now I know never to do that and won’t get in trouble for it. I am very confident in making sure that I give the appropriate attributions to people.

Its dark, its scary,

I’ve been thinking about it all night.

The colors make me want to scream.

I see something, but I don’t.

Its scaring me inside.

All I want is my mom.

I don’t feel safe here.

The rustic feeling is giving me chills.

My Avatar

Face your manga
I choose this avatar because it represents me in any way possible. It descries me as a person in real life and in fake life. I love my avatar because it has my 2 favorite colors pink and blue it also has my blonde hair and my green eyes. In my free time I like to play basketball, swim, and play softball.

My Passion

My passion is basketball, it’s so much fun to play when I feel myself dribbling down the court it will focus me and it blocks out everything and all I can think about is me shooting the ball. One of my favorite games is when I was in 4th grade it was the championship game and we won but in 5th grade (witch was last year) we were in the championship game again but we lost by 2 points. It was a really good game but I learned that you don’t always win every game and sometimes its ok to lose.                                                                                                                                                                             Basketball is a team sport if you want to play it you must commit to it. There is only one way to play and you have to play it right. if you get 3 fowls in a game you get a warning but if you get 7 fowls you are out for the rest of the game. Personally I love to play basketball in any weather rain or snow I wouldn’t care. I have played on many basketball teams some of them are Infant Jesus, Empire, 91, and Holy Cross. I have played on church leagues and competitive leagues. My favorite team was 91 it was a competitive team we have won more games than losing games.
