Gift Ideas For Jamaalidays!

Hello y'all! Welcome back to another blog post. As most of y'all probably know already, It's Jamaaliday's in Jamaa! This is always the funnest part of the year in my opinion, so that's why I have been posting about the Jamaaliday's! What do y'all want for Christmas this year? I don't know what I want. But, Christmas is about God, and how He came down here on the earth to die for us! He gave Himself, which was our gift so that we would be able to go to Heaven if we would accept it. To me, this is better than telling about the wisemen. Have you ever wondered about what gifts you could give people in Animal Jam for the Jamaaliday's? Everybody is in a rush to give their best friends and family members gifts for this special time of the year. So, if you are wanting to give someone something this year, you better head out now and start getting the gifts, Christmas is coming soon! Let's get started.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Spikes
Spikes can be very expensive, but they aren't always in high demand. That being said, you might be able to get them for a bit cheaper than the actual worth. The rarity system depends on spikes, so that being said, this would be the perfect gift for someone this year. Because of this, people can trade spikes for things that they really want, without you asking what they want. Perfect gift!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. A Collection

Collections can be very expensive, but what I mean by collections is all of the colors of an item. This gift would take you a while to get, but this gift is TOTALLY worth it! It's always so fun to see their reaction, even though you can't actually see them. :)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Betas

Betas are SO useful. If they want an item that you were not able to find, then just give them some betas! :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Masterpieces

Masterpieces are beautiful. They can describe so many things, while just being an item in the game. People take a lot of time into masterpieces, but a lot of the times they can be pretty cheap because they don't have much demand anymore. This is a perfect gift to give anybody!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Nature den items

Nature brings dens to life in Animal Jam. This is literally the perfect gift for anybody, but it normally does make you laggy. So watch out for that, y'all! LOL
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Uncommon den items
 
These den items are just items that are not seen very much, and normally they are very pretty, or... sometimes strange. These den items are extremely hard to get your paws on, but if you find a collector, you might have a chance of getting some!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Friendship
 
This is the best gift. Sure, this might not be a very visible gift. But friendship is the most important, and this helps you guys to grow stronger. :)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well guys, I guess that's it for today's post! I just wanted to thank y'all for reading, I really appreciate that! Here's today's meme!

And here's today's Bible verse!

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

What Color Do You See?

Me: HELLO Y'ALL. WELCOME BACK TO ANOTHER BLOG POSTIEEEEE!
You guys: I think she has lost her brain...
Me: YOU ARE SO WRONG! I HAVE NOT LOST IT, OTHERWISE I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE!
You guys: You are nuts...
Me: Well I'm surely not in a bag of nuts.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey guys! Welcome back to another blog post. :-) How has y'all's week been? I sure hope it has been good! Mine has been wonderful, because I got off of school for winter break! So I have a little bit over a month off, which I'm super excited about! When do y'all get off of school? I'd love to know! :-) The other day I came across a bunch of tests to see what color you see. (no I'm not misspelling color, It's not colour, It's color. It depends on where you are from but... yeah, I say color) I realized that my aunt saw a bunch of different colors that I didn't see, and my uncle saw options that weren't even an option! So, now I want to know what y'all see! My sister is going to be helping me play this game, so you will get to see her answer and my answer! I would love for y'all to play along, and then tell me in the comments, or in a JAG in Animal Jam! This post however is not going to be about Animal Jam, nor is it going to be a Christian blog post. I hope that's okay with y'all! Let's get started, shall we?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Color 1:
Housemom322's answer:
Blue

Housemom418's answer:
Blue 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To me, this is clearly blue. Like, there is no way it could be green! If you get green... make sure to tell me because I would be shocked1 It's for me like a teal color, but more blue than green for sure. I don't see any green in the color, It just looks teal. 🤣🤣
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Housemom322's answer:
Brown
Housemom418's answer:
 Red
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I could possibly see how somebody could get brown out of this, but to me it looks red. It's one of those iffy colors for me. What do y'all see?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Housemom322's answer:
Blue

Housemom418's answer:
Purple
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Clearly purple. No way it could be blue. What do y'all think? This is like the most opaque purple color ever. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Housemom322's answer:
Purple

Housemom418's answer:
Blue
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is sort of like a periwinkle color to me. I think It's blue, but I can for sure see how somebody could get purple out of it. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 *all credit goes to the owners, my aunt sent this to me, my guess is she found it on Google*
Alright, do you see pink and grey, or grey and blue/green?


Housemom322's answer:
Pink and grey

Housemom418's answer:
Grey and blue/green
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apparently, if you see pink and grey you are right brain dominant, if you see green and grey you are left brain dominant.
 So, I guess I am left brain dominant!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*all credit goes to the owners, I found this on Google*
Housemom322's answer:
Black and blue

Housemom418's answer:
Gold & White
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is an old one, that most everybody probably has seen before. Gold and white, or black and blue? This for sure is Gold and White, there's no way that it could be black and blue. However, it seems like my whole family see black and blue! How?!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well guys, that's it for today's blog post! I found this post very fun, and very interesting to do! Once again, I would love to see all of the answers that YOU got! Thanks for reading! 

Here's today's bible verse!
Romans 1:8 (KJV)
 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

11/27/19 Update Post!


Hello y'all! Welcome back to another bloooooog post with Housemom418! Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the U.S.A, and I hope that everybody who celebrates it had a good one! I know I did. :) On Wednesday, Animal Jam updated to be the Jamaaliday's. I decided that I would post about the update! So, why not get into the first page, am I right? Let's get started!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So starting off with the first page, the Jamaaliday deer are back! I love these deer so much, because they hold a bunch of memories. One of which, is actually how I met Gizmo! I wish I could show you the pictures that some of us took as a group, as these animals, but I can't seem to find it on my computer. These deer are members only, sadly. However, these deer are only 1,000 gems, so go and buy them today!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These pet camels are adorable!!! They are in the diamond shop, for 3 diamonds. Personally, I think these pets look way better than the camel in Animal Jam that you can play as. LOL That might just be my opinion though. This is a member's only pet.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Woohoo! This den is awesome. I'm so glad that this den has returned! Now we can build gingerbread houses! This den is still members only, and it is in the diamond shop for 5 diamonds! I'm starting to feel the Jamaaliday spirit!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Jamaaliday Jam part is back! This is always a fun party to be in with your friends. Am I the only one who just stays at a party in Animal Jam until everybody leaves, and then invite friends? Just me? Okay. LOL
We can't forget, the pet reindeer are waiting to be adopted! So rush to the party, and get your pet reindeer today!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This for sure has to be one of my favorite seasonal adventures! There is just something about it, that makes it feel so festive! All of the decorations, and the joy and help that we share while trying to get all of the gifts in this maze, just brings happiness! Jesus is the reason for the season. :)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The first part of this page is saying that 3 or more items will come unto shops each day! I am so excited to be able to decorate my Jamaaliday den with a bunch of the items that come out every year, or maybe some new items! So, make sure to look out for those items so you don't miss them! And the Jamaaliday Alpha Armor has come back to stores! This is found in the Alpha Headquarters, but it costs 108 diamonds in total if you want to buy every set. Best get saving!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The fall Eggstravaganza pets are going to leave soon, so if you didn't get the chance to buy the eggs already, make sure to buy them ASAP! I wonder what new pets will be in the eggs for the Jamaaliday's!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Gingerbread Armor is here!!! This armor is very festive, and very fun for the season. The Jamaaliday Gift Shop is here in the diamond shop as well! It has a bunch of Jamaaliday items in it, for only 1 diamond each! 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Black Friday is here in Animal Jam, so this is the best time of year to get Animal Jam membership! You get extra diamonds, even though you are paying just as much as you would before. Plus, the Jamaalidays are here, which is always the best time of year in my opinion!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, I guess that it's for today y'all!
Thank you for reading. :)
Here's today's meme!
And here's today's bible verse!
Hebrews 1:3-4 (KJV)
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: 
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!!

HELLOOOO EVERYBODY!! DO YOU KNOW WHY I'M SO EXCITED!?!?

"Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving?!"

Oh wait, tomorrow is Thanksgiving?

"Yes, Houze it is."

OH COOOL.

"You didn't know that?"

Well, I did, but that's not what I was going for.

"Okay, then why are excited?"

I GOT COOOOFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEEEE!

"OH, Houze! Get out of here!"

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
__________________________________________________________________


Hello, everybody! I'm back with another post. Today, I am sooooo excited. I can't wait for tomorrow!!! Tomorrow people across America will be gathering around the table with their families. Aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, parents, and brothers and sisters will gather to have a meal together. It's an exciting time of year, where some of the families favorite foods are brought to the table. We love and are thankful for the time we get with them.

It's a special time for me to sit down and reflect on the year. It reminds to be thankful for all of the things that happened throughout the year - good or bad.

A lot of things have changed in my life since last November, both good and bad. Either way, it's a great time for me to celebrate being able to live another year. With that being said, I am going to be telling you a little bit of history as far as the first Thanksgiving goes, then I'll tell you what it means to me personally.

In 1620, people from England came to America on the Mayflower, this ship carried roughly 100 people. The people landed in Massachusetts. According to, an eyewitness Edward Winslow, who was part of this first Thanksgiving in 1621. The first Thanksgiving was actually celebrated sometime between September and mid-November, and it wasn't called "Thanksgiving." Instead, it was a feast celebration, that lasted 3 days. It was a celebration of having a good harvest, as well as being able to survive the harsh winters in the new world and diseases that killed about half of their group.

It was important to the new settlers as well as the Natives to give thanks to God.  There menu probably didn't have the traditional foods that we have today, like potatoes, turkey, pumpkin pie, and whatever else you may have. Instead, it's believed they had venison, or deer as their meat along with many vegetables and fruits. By the late 1600s it became tradition in New England to celebrate, giving thanks to God for a good harvest.

(All information plus more can be found here: First Thanksgiving History.)

Now, that I've given you a brief history of the first Thanksgiving. I'm going to dive into what the day means to me.

1) It's a time for me reflect on what has taken place over the last year.

It's important to me to take some time to just sit down with my thoughts and in a way, step out of this world and think about the past year. Now, I also do this at the beginning of the year, but this is where it begins. I think about all of the things that have happened and begin to remember to be thankful for them. It's important to be thankful all of the time, but it's good to have a reminder to be thankful, since life can get a head of us sometimes. In Psalms 26:6-7 says:

6) I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD: 
7) That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

2) It's a time to spend with family and friends and creating memories.

I love being able to spend time with my family and friends. I haven't spent Thanksgiving with my family (extended family) for over 5 years, since moving to another state far a way from them. However, we have spent Thanksgiving with a few friends from church over these last 5 years. I have so many memories on Thanksgiving. Let me tell you, I have some stories, but I won't bore you with them. It gives you a deeper appreciation for the people in your life. I don't know where I would be without the people in my life.

3) THE FOOD, DUH!

Let's just say, I'm a food fanatic. I love food. I love the smell of the rolls baking. I love the pumpkin pie with whipped cream piled high. It's all good! The turkey - MMMMMM! Yeah, thank you Mr. Turkey for your sacrifice. I may eat too much (and I do), but personally I think it's worth everything.  It's just SOOOOOOOOO good!

I'm just in love. I can say that Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday after Christmas. 


***Bonus*** The fact that we get to decorate for Christmas the next day and on Saturday (usually). Some years we do it a little bit earlier or later, depending on what we decide to do. I actually already decorated my room for Christmas. Last week I helped my mom decorate the living room, and on Saturday we're hoping to put up the Christmas tree. It's very tiring to decorate, but I love the results.
________________________________________________________________

It looks like that's all for this post. Thank you all for reading. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving 2019!! Let me know in the comments what's your favorite part of Thanksgiving is, along with 1 thing you're thankful for. I'm thankful for the family I have and that they showed me how to come to know Jesus Christ. I'll see you all next week!! BYEEEE GUYSSSS!!

By the way, I'm not really sure why this post is in two different colors, (gray and black), when I typed it. It was in black, but for whatever reason it shows up two different colors and I can't fix it for whatever reason, so I'm sorry!
