I should of made this post early like maybe on Christmas Day but oh well.This is a post about and who came over for Christmas Dinner.
On the 23rd my little cousins, Grace (who is 5) and Kate (who is 3) came over from New York and stayed at our house till the night of Christmas.They were all full of energy and wore me out on the first day of there stay.The next day I slept in latish and they woke before me.I had woken up at around 9:00 (that is latish to me) and came out to see my cousins running around the living room.Once I woke up we went outside for a walk.My youngest cousin tried to ride the scooter but failed so my aunt ,Jennifer, had to ride the small scooter around the block.My uncle ,Nelson, held their hands.Luckily as usual there were no cars on the road.
My aunt ,Joe, and uncle ,Kevin, also came. I know they stayed at a hotel and were in Florida since Friday the 21st. I don't see them often so it was nice to see them.
My grandparents on my dad's side always came down so I see them every year.My grandma came down first and my grandpa came on Sunday the 23rd.They are always nice to see.
My grandparents on my mom's side also came to see us.They live in Florida so I see them more then any of my other relatives or grandparents.

Hello my fellow bloggers today I will be talking about the new Minecraft update and 3 of the books I have recently bought and read.
First for the Books
The first book I read was Behemoth.The site that link leads to is actually his blog for the series since it starts with Leviathan. In the story the Leviathan flies to the Ottoman empire to deliver a wee beastie to them as a peace offering. During the visit Alexander and his men escape the ship at night.They then join some revolutionists. Deryn Sharp is a girl who is disguised as a boy.She is disguised so that she can fly.She has changed her name to Dylan Sharp and is a midshipman on the Leviathan.She is a sent on a secret mission to damage some kracken nets that guard the ports of the town.Her three men are found one is killed.She completed her mission and goes to return to her men.She gets away and decides to find and help Alexander.
Read the book to find out more!! (but first read Leviathan)
In Goliath Alek finds out that Deryn is Deryn not Dylan and is a girl (back then girls were not aloud to serve which is why she dressed like a boy).Alek is now trying to not go near Deryn but when they get attacked by some germans they are forced to meet.Alek doesn't mind at all now that he knows.They have become good friends.(can't say more without giving story away.)
This Next Book isn't a sequel to Leviathan
The Always War
The Always War is about how two computers or AI (artificial intelligence) worked a plan to make it seemed like they were fighting a war.The war zone had been evacuated 70 years earlier.The humans thought the other side was there so the used drones to bomb it.The bombs were fake and defective though.Then three kids one military pilot, a girl who had lost her parents, and a common girl who read old books.Find out what happens when the pilot buys a old airplane and flies with two unknown passengers to the war zone.
In 1.4.6 we got fireworks and some bug fixes.The fireworks are awesome I have messed with them on creative.I kind of wish I had the TMI (to many items) mod so I didn't have to craft them though.There is a creeper face, a large ball, a smaller ball, and scatter.It is best to use them at night.They look awesome with bright colors.

A while back I read the Lord of the Rings series. I first started out with the Hobbit then I read the whole series.
I read the Hobbit because a friend of mine had started to read the Fellowship of the Ring. I asked him what the first book in the series.He said the prequel (which means before the story) is called the Hobbit.I went online and bought the Hobbit for kindle. I read it in about a week. I loved the story of Bilbo Baggins and the unexpected adventure.
In the story Bilbo Baggins of the Shire is sitting in his dining room having some tea when Gandalf The Grey knocks on his door. The next day at the same time ,tea time, two dwarves arrived at his door.This went on until there were twelve dwarves.Then Gandalf arrived. The dwarves talked of great riches and dragons and Bilbo just listened as if it were a fairy tale.The next day he went on a uenxpected journey.Read it to find out the rest.
Random quote from Smeagol: "Bagginsess, what tis a Bagginsess?"
The Fellowship of the Ring
Bilbo is done with his adventure and is very old.He has unwillingly given the ring to Frodo Baggins of the Bucks.Frodo now must bring the ring to mount DOOM.In the beginning Frodo and his friends Sam,Pippin, and Merry (all boys Merry is a boy) are going to see the elves.On the way there they have to hide many times from the Ring Wraiths after they arrive they stay for a few months and say hi to Bilbo who is with the elves.They leave to a epic journey you will have to find in the book.
The Two Towers
Frodo and his fellow travelers are now separated. Merry and Pippin are taken by the Orks Borimir is dead Angamar, Gimili, and Legolas must now find there friends. Sam and Frodo are going to Mount Doom.Angamar, Gimili, and Legolas are chasing the orks that have stollen there friends. The orks are cutting through Rohan. It will be there last mistake.The Rohan horse men slay every last ork and burn the bodies.The travelers ask the Rohan men were there friends are.Merry and Pippin have ran into the forest.Will they come out or not? You read it and you will find out.
The Return of the King
In Return of the King I can't say anything with out spoiling it so I will say this.It is pretty much all battle and not much traveling.There are some huge awesomely described battles.Read it please do read it.
In Minecraft I am going to make a huge hobbit hole. It will be up Sat. or Sun. this week.
