Christmas 2015

hey y’all,

i hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends, creating memories and cherishing the holiday together. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ… here’s a recap of how i took on the crazy holiday week.

Tuesday: last Tuesday, a few days before Christmas, my cheer squad preformed our Christmas routine at the girls basketball game. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ˜ ๐ŸŽ€ this routine is always super fun because it’s our “chill” one where we just put together the silly, fun stuff we wouldn’t normally get to do. we also get to wear super cute santa hats & long, elf style socks. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ that night was alumni night, so the gym was extra packed… and extra warm.๐Ÿ”ฅ but it was alright, we didn’t melt ๐Ÿ˜‰ {even though we sure thought we would ๐Ÿ˜‚}. a video of the performance will be up on Facebook, so check it out there ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thursday: Christmas Eve! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ… Thursday night, we went over to my Aunt Michelle’s & Uncle Scott’s house, like we do every year. my family, the 10 of us, always eats a big, soup dinner then open gifts from each other. this year, we changed up and attended the 9:00 church service instead of the earlier one. my momma, sister, grandparents and i all went to that, then went home for the night.

Friday: Christmas day! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ… early that morning, we opened our gifts from “santa” and got back with the fam and ate another big, delicious breakfast together, celebrating Jesus’ birthday! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐ŸŽ my cousins leave to go to a lunch with the other side of their family and the rest of us clean up and then relax for a little bit together, just hanging out. ๐Ÿ‘Œโค later that night, my momma, Shaylee and i spent time with Michael, doing gifts and eating dinner with him.๐Ÿ˜Š i was blessed with a bundle of amazing gifts, but i have chosen not to share them as i know others don’t get the chance to receive like i do, and in the end it doesn’t really matter.

im excited for the new year that’s just around the corner and to see what it holds! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜ thanks for reading. hope you all have a wonderful week! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

much love, Davianne โค

the past few days

hey hey ๐Ÿ‘‹,

last week, my Advanced Art class decided to take a break from our own projects, and take the kindergarten students artwork of their own little monster, and make it come to life by creating an actual model of each monster! we created and painted them to look as close as to the original as we could, then took them down and surprised the kindergarteners with them! they were beyond happy and it was so cool being able to brighten up there day a bit ๐Ÿ™‚ fun pictures of Sydney {my artist} and i below ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐ŸŽจ

Thursday and Friday during the day were finals ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜  , then Friday night we had basketball games against GICC ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€ . Girls, obviously, won again & boys lost. Afterwards, a group of kids from mostly my class, went over to Minn’s house to hang out for a while ๐Ÿ‘Œ that was pretty chill, just hanging with eachother. ๐Ÿ˜

Saturday was a super fun day!! Shaylee and I spent most of the late morning into the early afternoon, running errands and doing a little bit of Christmas shopping. After that, Kallie got Dominica and I from our houses, as we had been planning on getting ready for “squad night” with the cheer sqaud later that night, together. ย before we got all pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰, ย we ran to the mall and swung by Scooter’s. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ By that time, we needed to start getting ready, so we headed back to Kallie’s house and did just that ๐Ÿ˜Š. Once we were all set, we headed over to The Oven to eat dinner with the other girls. We finished there, then headed to Eva’s house to do our Secret Santa/ gift exchange and just hang with one another! ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ… overall, Saturday was a total blast and a day i would take again, anytime! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Sunday, my momma and i spent the ENTIRE day, Christmas shopping! ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„ we were both completely exhausted by the end of the day, but were able to successfully, accomplish many things we needed to ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ, so it’s all good ๐Ÿ˜‰

We are only 4 days away from Christmas ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…, and i am pumped! im excited to take on the busy week, and spend the Holiday with my loved ones ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•, most importantly, remembering the REAL reason for the season โค.

i will definitely be back soon with huge update on how things went, but until til then… thanks for reading, & merry, merry Christmas โค๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…

much love, Davianne

Weekend Recap

hey y’all,

this weekend was a crazy busy, but extremely fun one. ๐Ÿ™‚ here’s what took place:

Friday, the 11th: basketball games against our rivals, Lincoln Lutheran! we were at their place this year, and it was packed. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ girls, of course, won and boys had a rough loss. the kid from LL summed the night up well, saying something like that everyone always has that game circled on their calendars, and LCS always beats them in football, so it’s fun to see what happens in basketball. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‘Œ sadly, one of our players got hurt and had to be taken to the hospital. even though, the situation was heart-breaking, it was absolutely amazing that 2 rival schools could come together as one and pray before God as brothers & sisters in Christ. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘Œ ahhh, still gives me chills thinking about. โคโค super cool pic of that below.

Saturday, the 12th: back to back basketball! ๐Ÿ€ Saturday, we had to cheer for more basketball games, but this time we were home and played Sutton. once again, girls slayed ๐Ÿ˜‰ and creamed ’em. ๐Ÿ’ then, surprisingly the boys won their game! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ totally shocked us all ย because they haven’t had a very good season. but, they played strong all the way til the end, and got the dub. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ exciting night for us all!

Sunday, the 13th: each year, a side of my family gets together for our traditional family Christmas. there are 2 reasons this get together is one of my favs:

โ€ข the event is held in teeny, tiny, small town Pawnee City, Nebraska {which is by the way, where Dan Whitney AKA Larry the Cable Guy is from ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ฏ}. my heart will always have a place for small towns and i absolutely love hitting the road, and headed out there. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

โ€ข this is one of those reunions where we get to see family memebers, that we rarely get to see at other times throughout the year. it’s always fun to catch up and spend some time together. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

the weather was not the best, it literally rained the entire day and was a bit cold, but we didn’t melt. ๐Ÿ˜‰ other than that, it was a great end to the weekend and time well spent!

December has already been packed, and i can’t wait to see what else it brings ๐Ÿ‘Œ im so pumped for the holiday and time with family coming up ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„, but until then, here’s to barely making it through the next few weeks and stressful days ๐Ÿ˜ช, counting down every second until we’re done!

thanks for reading. much love, Davianne โค

hey hey ๐Ÿ‘‹,

November is one of my favorite months for a bundle of reasons. There’s just something about the weather/season change from Fall ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ to Winter โ„โ›„โ˜€๐Ÿ’ง, and the holiday spirit ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„ hitting full blast, that really puts me in the right mood ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š. i absolutely love being able to spend time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping and relaxing, and these end-of the-year months, are when all of that really, takes place. with that being said, here’s a recap of some events that have taken place throughout the busy month of November.

November 2, 3 & 5: to start off the month, we had a busy week full of volleyball sub-districts. for Monday and Tuesday, we played at Waverly, winning both which lead us to the game at Centennial High School. There we had a rough loss to Columbus Scotus, which hopefully you have already read about how good their team was in my last post. Obviously, since we lost, the season was over, but there were a lot of fun games to look ย back on. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’™

November 6: this year, i am taking Advanced Art ๐ŸŽจ. November 6th was a Friday, and so my class decided to take the afternoon off and head to the Capital ๐Ÿค. who ever said, we were too old for field trips ๐Ÿ˜œ?!? while we were there, we explored the entire building, checking out all the different patterns that fill the place, and unfortunately had a few other students get stuck in the elevator ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฒ. the maintenance people weren’t very helpful, and it took forever to get them out ๐Ÿ‘Š, so i would highly suggest avoiding the elevators there if possible. even though we had that not-so-fun adventure, it was still a great day!โœŠ

November 15: even though it was a Sunday, this day was an important one, with big events that took place. not only was it my sister Shaylee’s birthday ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‰, but my first cheer competition ๐ŸŽ€. i spent the day with my squad, getting ready, doing hair and make up and all that beauty stuff. the competition was at the Century Link Center in Omaha, later that night. my whole family was there, which proves my sister deserves the “best sister” award for spending her birthday, watching my team compete ๐Ÿ’. Overall, our squad gave it our best and did ย good as a whole, but didn’t place well. That was completely okay with us though, because unlike all the other teams there, we learned our routine in 2 weeks, instead of 2 months . Also the only reason we competed at that one, was for practice to get ready for our upcoming, bigger ones ๐Ÿ‘Œ. Here’s to only getting better and better and progressing towards the future, together as a squad! PS: cute pictures from the comp below ๐Ÿ™‚

November 20: the next week, on Friday, the whole family got back together and headed to Olive Garden ๐Ÿ˜‹ to eat and celebrate Shaylee’s birthday dinner. there’s some funny photos below that perfectly describe my family and the love we have for each other, so be sure to check them out below.

November 21: back in Omaha with the family again, this time though for Emily and Katie’s first competitive cheer competition. Emily’s team got 3rd place and Katie’s got 1st ๐Ÿ†! seriously so proud of both girls, and how far they’ve come! they continue to be an inspiration to me throughout my cheer career. love them to pieces!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

November 25-27: finally, Thanksgiving break ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿž๐Ÿต๐Ÿช๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฏ! On the day of Thanksgiving, my whole family eat a delicious lunch together, watched some football, play cards, looked at ads and overall just spent some quality time together. โคโค of course to continue on the tradition, we went Black Friday shopping ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ณ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‘œ๐Ÿ‘›, ย despite the yucky weather. Shaylee & I hit some of the early stores, just the two of us. then later that night, we got together with Yaya, Sheridan, and Sheridan’s sister, Ciara. so fun to see them, and do something we all love together, on a special night!! ๐Ÿ˜ The 27th, or the day after the holiday, of course meant the Husker vs Hawkeye game! ๐Ÿˆ Shaylee and i were able to take the 2 of our fam’s season tickets, because obviously we wouldn’t miss that game for anything! ha. my grandma and Conner, took the other seats. it was extremely cool for our grandma to take just the older grandkids or as we like to be called, the “originals” ๐Ÿ˜‰ to a game, and have that time with us because a lot of women or families don’t get to have those moments. โค i know the four of us will always cherish that memory with one another๐Ÿ‘Œ. given the fact that the high for the weather that day was only 20ยฐ, it was absolutely FREEZING, and we lost the game, which was a bummer, but it was still something we are thankful to have the opportunity to do, when others may not. ๐Ÿ‘Œ Friday night after the game, the 10 of us got together once again, and ate dinner as a family at F.O.X, close to home. ๐Ÿ˜‹

November 29: my grandpa’s birthday is on the 30th, and we were looking towards a busy week, so the fam all met up in Seward, to eat for his birthday! ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰ since, the weather was supposed to get bad later that day, we grabbed a quick lunch at the local Mexican restaurant, we love ๐Ÿ˜‹. yumma! good eats. good people. good times.

and just like that, we’re opening December and 2015 has about reached it’s end. i know i say it a lot, but honestly… WHERE DOES TIME GO?? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

to be quite honest, it bums me out that as i get older, time slips away faster than a blink of an eye, but at the same time, there is so much happiness around, you can’t do anything but cherish and make the most of it. December ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„โ›„โ„ is so beautiful in a thousand different ways, and I’m beyond ready for it (extra thanks to all the holiday spirit, really puttin’ me in the feels this year ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚), so I’m going to do exactly that.

here’s to the final month of 2015, and making every step along the way, worth it! thanks for reading. much love, Davianne
