Black Friday

I woke up this morning with my mind on getting more sleep and how I turned off my alarm clock in my sleep.  I quickly dressed and was ready to go at 4:35 am for shopping.  It turned into a long day at the mall and Walmart.  At Walmart it was interesting when they opened up the deals for everybody, I could definently see how someone could get trampled.  My friends and I went into the food section where there was nobody.  After all the shopping we went and had an Xbox party which was a lot more fun.  Hope you all had a great Black Friday.

Thanksgiving Day Trivia

Did you know that the Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on the 2nd monday in October?  When I read this I found it very interesting.   Thought you might all want to know.

Thanksgiving Day

Hello everybody and how in the world are you anyway?  I stayed up till after midnight just so I could say that I was the first to wish you a happy turkey Thanksgiving Day. 

  Today I was at the store and couldn't help overhearing an employee telling someone happy turkey day.  Later I went to the lady and said "Happy Thanksgiving".  She stumbled over her words and finally said "you too".  This bothered me because shouldn't we be able to say "Happy Thanksgiving".  Aren't we thankful that the Pilgrims came over to the "New World" and eventually started America?  Aren't we thankful that we live in a some what free country?  Aren't we thankful that we have a roof over our head this thanksgiving and a turkey to eat?   After mulling over these questions I came to my conclusion, you can actually find it in the Bible.  In Psalm 106:1 you will find the words "O give thanks unto the Lord".  I challenge you that for this one day in the year 2009 you be thankful no matter the circumstance.  When it comes down to it you probably don't deserve to be where you are but the Lord has been merciful to you and has put you in your circumstance for a reason.  So I challenge you, in everything give thanks.

Friends Day

We had a friends day at our church last Sunday.  There were over 170 people there.  After church we had a potluck and at the potluck we had a clown

And the clown had a show

I will say this, the people that helped the clown were tired after they were done.

The Farm

The last post of these continual postings is here!  In October my mom went up to the farm to prepare some apples for applesauce.  After a full day at the farm they realized that they were still not done.  But eventually we got our applesauce and apple butter.  Here are a few pictures.

It's Official

While I am here trying to get caught up on blogging, I have been told by my sources that I am cleared to resume all my physical activities.  The doctor said that there is a chance that my spleen will stay bruised for a long while.  If only the gym was not set up for the Thanksgiving Potluck I would be playing basketball tonight.

Tea Party

Our local library held a "Fancy Nancy Tea Party".  My sister, as you might of guessed, had to go.  She went to the tea party and it turned out that one of her friends from the church went there also.  I suppose that she had a great time.  Here are a few pictures.

The Farm

Yes, I have posted once about the farm and I will do so again.    We made lefsa at the farm and had a great time.  Here are the pics.

 A few minutes ago I was thinking "Man, I really should update the blog more often".  I figured I could check my mother's camera and see if there was anything interesting on there.  Hopefully something that would make a post.  What I did not realize was she really has been taking a lot of pictures.  I now feel obligated to catch you guys all up on what has been happening in North Dakota.  Enjoy!

40th Anniversary

In the month of October our church held its 40th anniversary.  Why I did not blog about then? I don't know.  But now I am, here are a few pics.

The services went great.  I will give you a rundown of all the people in the pictures. The top picture is my mom and dad (just in case you guys didn't know).  The next one would be a picture of the Budgells from Canada.  On to the next picture.  This picture is a picture of our family.  The next picture from left to right contains Bro. Bollinger, Bro. Gilbert Pearson, Bro. Vaughn Pearson, and last is our Pastor.  The last picture is Vaughn and Wendy Pearson.

Fall Festival

We had our Fall Festival way back in October.  It went well and
here are a few pictures.

The Clothesline

Figure you might want to see what caused me all the trouble in the first place.

The Farm

Saturday we woke up and traveled the fifty miles south to the farm. This time it was much more enjoyable than last time. We made some lefsa, which is extremely good to eat fresh of the grill, and had much fun. I took a nice little trip on their four-wheeler, took a little walk which turned into a long one, and tried to stay as far from the work as possible. Jason, Leesha, Garret, and I left a little bit earlier to go hunting. Leesha was the one who was trying to fill a tag. She tried to shoot a deer at around five hundred yards, but missed. Later on she had another chance. The doe was running up a hill trying to escape, Leesha jacked her chamber and out came the bullet that was in the chamber. Her dad was getting very frustrated, yet she was able to stay calm. She reloaded the gun, looked through scope, and knowing that she did not have another bullet pulled the trigger. The deer was in mid-stride when she shot. Jason, being the master hunter he is, saw the deer drop its head. We all rushed up the hill to see if it was there and what we saw was very interesting. We saw the deer on the ground squirming around like it had been shot. Jason calmly walked up to it, raised his shotgun, and POW. The deer was dead. The rest of us walked up to it and saw the deer on its side, and the deer’s legs moving as though it was running away. I really wished I had my camera with me at that moment, but if whishes were horses beggars would ride. It was around this time that Garret and I had the pleasure of watching Jason and Leesha gut out the deer. Oh yea, I almost forgot to say that Leesha's shot was a perfect headshot that knocked out some brains, any eye, and part of the nose.

It is crazy that is already November. To think that I already need to buy Christmas presents again. Nothing amazing has been going on up here in the land of the North. This weekend we are going to the Sletten's farm to make some lefsa (something like a tortilla that is really good with butter and sugar). I told the Sletten's that they need to put a "No Jumping" sign on their clothesline because someone could really sue them over that.
