October 2016

Hey y’all!

October was filled with all sorts of emotions and definitely life-changing to say the least…. take a look at what all took place below…

October 1: Husker football game with my grandma! My grandma and I both share a huge love for the Huskers and so it’s always fun when I’m able to tag along to games with her & especially when the ‘skers πŸ˜‰ pick up the W too! πŸ™‚

October 2: one of the scariest, and most life-changing days of all, but one that we wouldn’t change for the world… the birth of my absolutley beautiful niece, Alivia Jo! If you ever wanna hear a really adventurous story where you can see the literal hand of God without a doubt, let me know because I will always be down to share. Also, I’m just gonna apologize now (kinda, not really ;)) for all the photos you will be spammed with of little Liv Jo… but I can’t help it. I’m obsessed. And I’m not ashamed. So, sorry not sorry. πŸ˜‰

October 6: Conner’s football game vs. Millard South!

October 7: LCS Football vs. Ashland- Greenwood! The boys played a really tough game, and surprisingly picked up the W… a fun night for sure! Afterwards, Mattie and I headed over to Minn’s and spent the night there with her!

October 8: KEITH URBAN, BRETT ELDREGE, & MAREN MORRIS CONCERT!! If you had talked to me about the concert before it took place, you knew that originally I had planned on going with my momma and Shay. Well, because of Shay & Liv’s conditions ^, they weren’t able to go, so I actually ended up going with Kallie instead! This was my 2nd time seeing Keith (the 1st was AMAZING too :)) , and I really, really wanted my momma and Shaylee to see/ expierence him too, but life happens and I’m still super thankful that Kal got take their place!

October 11: First off, Conner’s football game vs. Lincoln East! Good ole’ Nebraska pushed in one of her cold, winter breezes that night, so the game was a little chilly, but nothing short of exciting. It actually went into overtime, but the Hawks fought the entire way and got the win! After that, the family went out to dinner at Val’s to celebrate Katie’s 11th birthday, a day early. Katie is literally my mini-me and, so it’s even more surreal that she, “the baby”, is already 11! Makes me feel old, ha. πŸ˜‰

October 13: LCS volleyball game!

October 14: LCS football game vs. Milford! Not only was this game at our home field, but it was also the homecoming game, so that was extra fun! Later that night was our actual Homecoming event at McGee’s Cabin!

October 15: I hung out with Ellie & Yaya for a little bit!

October 18: LCS volleyball game vs. Raymond Central!

October 20: LCS football game @ Southern (Wymore, Ne)! This was the last game of the regular season which always makes me sad as the Friday Night Lights are my favorite time of the year, but the season was still one to remember!

October 22: Husker football game vs. Purdue with Shaylee! It was a beautiful day and of course, Nebraska won ;), which always makes the day better. Once we finished the game, all the “5 kids” plus Molly, Caitlin, & Mason went to din din with grandma and grandpa. We are so blessed to be able to do even the littlest of things with them πŸ™‚

October 28: Grandparent’s Day at school! We only have one more year left doing these kinds of things, so we are cherishing the time as much as we can. We got dismissed at 1:00, so later that afternoon and into the night I hung out with Yaya and Mattie and stayed the night at Yaya’s.

October 31: Halloween 2016! Yaya & I got dressed up and once again spent the night together. πŸ™‚ See all the fun photos from that night below.

Like I said earlier, October 2016 was an adventure and definitely one that will not be forgotten. Thanks for reading & talk to y’all soon!

Much love, Davianne

Hey y’all!

A few weekends ago, Shaylee & I got to go to the Alan Jackson concert while he was here in town πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ’―. His opener was Lauren Alaina Β (she was the runner-up on American Idol, season 10) and she said something and then played a song that both really hit home for me. Here’s what she said…

She said that her whole life, her father was an alcoholic. When she turned 19, her mom asked her dad for a divorce. That day, he checked himself into rehab, but they still ended up getting divorced. She is 21 now. Her mom got re-married to her dad’s best friend and her dad got sober, and also got re-married to a 28 year old, but everyone’s happy so it’s all alright. She finished by asking who else had a family crazier than hers?! haha. She then played us the song she wrote about this whole crazy family situation, titled “I’m doing fine”; the lyrics go like this πŸ’•:

Daddy got sober, Mama got his best friend
I’ve cut down crying to every other weekend
Thanks for asking how I’ve been
I’ve gotten to good at hiding it within
I’m okay, things are great but the truth is
Yeah, the truth is

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Daddy signed the papers the day I turned 19
Mama drove north to find a new beginning
I blamed God I blamed myself
Then I fell on my knees and prayed like hell
It’s funny how a touch of grace gives you healing
Yeah, I’m healing

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Oh these growing pains well I wish they’d go away
But I guess you can’t be free without a fight

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long, long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Daddy got sober, Mama got his best friend
But I’m doing fine, yeah

This really hit home for me because despite what it probably looks like, I don’t exactly come from the “picture-perfect family”, and I’m sure you don’t either. I mean if we’re being real, every family has its’ rough spots (some more than others πŸ˜‰), ones that are usually messy and chaotic and often times painful and heart-breaking; ones that we usually don’t tend to put out there very much. But in the end, they are there and those people are still your family, whether you like it or not and when it comes right down to it, they are all you got. That’s it. It’s just you and them.If I’m honest, I personally have had to learn this the hard way, but I’m sure glad I did because it has taught me some of the biggest and most important lessons in my life. And I guess when I put everything else aside, I’mΒ pretty darn lucky to be able to call the people who are my family, mine. We most definitely don’t have it all together, and we’re not exactly okay, BUT we are going to be alright, and we are doing fine.

So anyway, yes, Lauren Alaina your family is pretty crazy, but don’t doubt that my family wouldn’t be right up there with ya. Ha. 😜

Thanks for reading, guys & don’t forget to love on your tribe tonight; they’re all you got.

Much love, Davianne ❀
