Thanksgiving, birthday and more

I hope you've got a few minutes when you're reading this or you might want to wait with reading to a better time. I have quite a few things to tell about the last few weeks. So buckle up, guys - you're in for a wild ride!
First stop: So remember I mentioned earlier about me auditioning for the spring musical? Well, I got the part I wanted! Which isn't really a part at all. I'm in the chorus - but that means I'll be a lot on stage anyway. Good thing is that almost all of the people who were a part of the fall play is a part of the musical, too.

Me and Megan, my crazy senior friend 

My honey boo and I. Katelyn's on yearbook, too 

Go team tech crew!

Second stop: Both me and Anne auditioned for the Forensics Team. I'm guessing almost nobody know what it is - I barely even knew before I auditioned! Basically, it's these competitions where you pick a piece from a book, movie or anything like that. Then you act it out. Depending on the piece, there's different categories. Let's just leave it at that Anne and I are doing a duo. We're probably going to do it with immigrants coming to the US or something like that, because it could be pretty funny since we both have the accents. This Sunday, we were at Barnes and Noble to pick out a piece and everybody introduced themselves. Everybody was so nice and I'm looking forward to the next meeting, which is tomorrow.

Third stop: Thanksgiving weekend! 

When we got home from Black Friday shopping

Just SOME of all the food on Thanksgiving

Tabby and Anne at aunt Lynn's house

A very proud Tabby showing off her first homemade cake ever

When we got home Anne had a package waiting for her. Her mom had sent her a christmas calender - and one for me, too! So now everyday in December we get a little gift 

We had some troubles setting up the christmas tree, but it was darn fun!

Christine made a kitty litter cake for her dad's birthday. Regardless of its looks, it tasted yummy

On the morning of Thanksgiving, Christine asked if we could get all the snow away from the car. So we walked out in PJ's, boots and danced to Christmas music

Fourth stop: My birthday. Boy, was it quite the birthday! I woke up and was expecting it to be just another normal day (although, in all fairness, Christine and Lee had warned I was in for it). Well, it started normal. Except for a special birthday song in creative writing with guitar and everything, it was a perfectly normal school day. But when the time came to lunch.. All of a sudden, I saw Lee come walking in the cafeteria with a giant balloon and small crowns saying "Happy birthday." Before my brain had even registered that I was not daydreaming, he was tying the balloon to my bag and exclaiming, "Happy birthday!" My friends at the table were wearing the biggest smiles on their faces and was half clapping. Still not entirely myself, he started speaking to the tables around me and got them to sing happy birthday for me. I could just die right there. So for the rest of the day, with a balloon hovering above me, several people yelled Happy birthday at me, whereever I went. When me and Anne got home from school, we both started baking. When we were both done Lee walked in with another cake - just in case we didn't have time to make them. So we had a danish, german and danish one. We only just barely got through the german one. In the evening, when Christine got home, we went out to dinner and then to the movies. Needless to say, it was a perfect day!

Last stop: Almost there guys! I'm just gonna show some random pictures and the ride is finally over!
