Gummi Bears

April 13, 2009

Ashley sent me this interesting article which included Gallup Polls illustrating the decline of Christianity and the rise of Atheism.

This Easter I got a new drivers hat, slippers, gummi bears, and a Jungle Book singing toothbrush.

I ran out of gummi bears already 😦

Check out Rambo playing with his new toy:

My entire childhood I always hated Thanksgiving. I’ve always been a picky eater and a holiday centered around food was never enticing. My extended family was always so uninteresting, lots of church people with nothing more interesting to say then “So how’s school?” Dysfunctional would have been so much more exciting. For a few years, instead of cooking a dinner, we would just go out the Ryan‘s all-you-can-eat buffet, this was amazing. I didn’t have to worry about offending anyone for not trying their dish. If you didn’t like one of your choices, you didn’t have to be respectful of the cook and keep it quiet. I got to eat un-Thanksgiving’s Day food, like fired chicken, pizza, french fries, ice cream cones, and gummi bears.

Those days have come and gone, now I’m married. Ashley’s family is absolutely crazy for Thanksgiving. To them it’s a bigger holiday then Christmas. Being around people who are so wacko for Thanksgiving, has made me appreciate it more, even enjoy it.

This Black Friday, I encourage everyone to forgo the classy stores and get their redneck on, go to K-Mart or Wal-Mart. When you return home, get that tree up pronto!
