Can you think of anything better than being with your family for the holiday season? I say NOT!! Family is so important to me and I am so grateful that I have such a wonderful family. These past few weeks have been so great! We had the opportunity to have family over for Alex's Homecoming. It was so great to be able to be with family and it was really special for Alex who had not seen his uncles, aunts, cousins and Grandma in two years!

Then we had the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving in Indiana this year! It had been 10 years since we had seen members of my mom's side of the family! Now that is way too long!!! Everyone was so grown up and it was just so great to rekindle our love for one another. I have the most amazing family who love and care for one another!! I am grateful for every single one of them! Here are some pic of the Lowry and Jones family!

A Sleepless Weekend!

This passed week was sooo incredible! I have some of the most amazing people in my life!!! I want to thank everyone for such a wonderful birthday and a great weekend! This birthday was such a great one! First, it is the last one without Jake here!! Yay!! Second, I got to spend it with all of my great friends! The day started off with getting a great package from my amazing missionary:) He sent me a picture and a customized hat!!! It was pretty funny when I opened it! I was all excited and had my roommate Felica start taking pictures of me wearing my new hat! As I turned away, she said "Oh my gosh!! Alyssa, it says Alyssa Poulson on the the back!" I took off my hat and low and behold, it said Alyssa Poulson! It was sooo great and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful and caring man in my life! Then at about 11:00am there was a knock on our door. I looked out the peeping hole, and saw a delivery man standing there with a bouquet of Gerber Daisies!! Jake had done it again, and sent me flowers! :) The day continued like
normal...school and work. We had a basketball scrimmage that night, so I was out late working. When I got home, to my surprise, all of my friends jumped out of hiding spots! It was awesome! Oh and I can't forget the traditional New York Cheesecake delivery!!! I had such a great birthday and its all thanks to my friends, family, and boyfriend!

So Cute!!

The week continued with some really great fun! There are some fun Halloween parties that go on in Logan for Halloween weekend. This year me and my friends decided to go to the Hamilton's party. It was so much fun! We danced and danced and danced the night away! And anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE to dance. This year, I decided to dress up like the New Boyz. They are a rap group who sings the famous song "Jerk." Needless to say, I was in my element with all my swag:) We had a great group and a long night! But it was all worth it! The time is starting to fly by and I can't believe that it is almost Thanksgiving already!!! Much love yall! Peace and Blessings!

The whole night long, we pulled these faces!
All the girls!!!

Jordan was sick this night, so this is us missing her!
