I had a great time!

Look at that family! That's my mom, my sister, my brother and myself last Thanksgiving. We are a very close family and I love them dearly. As I mentioned in a previous email, I wished my brother was closer to the family. I am going to continue to pray on this situation, because I love this guy so much! He has been calling and that's a start! My sister and I have grown extremely close over the years. We have such a big age difference, that she was more like a mother than a sister. She is such a sweet, loving, intellectual, and driven person. She is so strong. She turned 44 today. She has done so much in those 44 years too. I could have not asked for a better sister. She is very PROTECTIVE of her siblings. I guess because she is the oldest.. She continues to look out for us and I guess this will never change. She is always there when I need her. I love her dearly.

Yesterday, I visited my brother for a few hours I had a great time at this house. Little Nas is getting so big. I was shocked to see that my brother pierced his ear, but I guess like father like son. The girls were so excited to see their "TT Dana", that 's what all of my neices and nephews call me. Nas would not leave me alone, I swear he is going to be a little perv, when he grows up. LOL He kept putting his hand down my shirt. He kept giving me kiss after kiss and would not let me put him down. My son Jariel was the same way, he used to love rubbing on women's legs and looking under bathroom stalls....LOL

Then we went to my sil's to pick up Jariel's cell phone. Then I went to Walmart and found the cutest ribbons, that were 50 cents a yard! Then I went to Sabrina's for dinner with my sister, my mom, and friends. We had a blast. We closed the place up. I was so tired when I got home, I went right to bed, only to be awaken by my oldest son BEE to pick him up from the movies. I was so tired. I just threw a jacket over my pj's and picked him up.

Overall, I had a good time. Plan to do some scrapbooking today, doing some reading, and reading my Oprah mag. Also, gotta take Jaree's braids down and wash, condition, and blow dry her hair. UGH! She has so much hair, I hate doing it. That is why I alway put it into braids.....lol

I love being around my family too. Mostly girls, but we have a great time when we get together. I was so glad to find your blog again, I lost it in my favorites when my computer went down. I found your link in Lisa Sanford's blog. I hope to keep in touch.
