This article is mostly about the Kardashians' Thanksgiving. But, Mark was there as well. Scroll down to the bottom of the article, Khloe took a picture of Mark playing guitar.

Since Mark asked, via his blog, to think about what we are thankful for...we thought we'd take a moment to post our thanks. Hope you are all having an amazing Thanksgiving holiday and enjoying time with your family and friends. :)
Well, I spent over an hour writing out an entire post and it was all lost when I saved. :( Sad! And now I have to run, so I'll just have to post this and add to this post later. ;)
I am thankful for Jesus Christ. Trials and tribulations (they make us stronger and wiser!). My family. My friends. My new friend, @babettessugar, who has been awesome and I'm so happy I've met her. :) My jobs...I may be tired and still unable to pay all my bills, but I'm glad I have employment. All of you! It has been great chatting with all of you and sharing our love for Mark. :) And finally, Mark Ballas.
I wish I had more to share right now...I promise to write this again when I have some time. (crazy computers being evil and eating my posts!!)
:) Oh, and I'm thankful that I have a computer. Even though it's evil sometimes. ;)
Bless you all and Happy Thanksgiving!
Well, Thanksgiving is among us, and although I am thankful for everything I have everyday, I would like to take this time to share with all of you.
Family. I thank God everyday for my family. My amazing parents who take care of me, and lead by example. My parents take us on amazing trips every year, worked hard for me to get into a great university, and pushed me to be the best person I can be. I am honored to call them my parents. My brothers and sisters who look up to me and all that we do for each other. I know that whatever I set my mind to, my family will always be there to back me up, to give me advice, and be people whom I can turn to for anything. I am so thankful to have them in my life, and for the fact that we are close. I treasure that most.
Friends. Aside form the love of family, it is equally important for one to have good friends. The friends who you can call on at 2am for a homework question, the ones who tell you if your outfit looks good, or the ones who are sitting there listening when you need to vent. I am blessed to have those kinds of friends in my life. But you know, people you are close to do not have to be people you see everyday--or even met! In my case, I’m talking about @BewitchBallas. I am SO thankful that she is a part of my life. She is a great person with a great heart. Not only does she have the COOLEST Mark Ballas fansite, she is truly a wonderful person. We have many of the same interests ( main thing being Mark Ballas--LOL) and we have become such great friends. I would like her to know how truly honored I am to have met her, and work with her everyday--THANKS!!
Health. God, I am so thankful for my health. With everything going on around us, sometimes it’s easy to pick on things that are wrong in our lives, and forget the things that we have. I am thankful that I have my heath--I’m young, strong, and have no health issues.It's easy to take it for granted. But, like anything else, I know that it can change at anytime, so I should be happy I am in good health, and I am happy. I am also thankful that my family members are in good health also.
Job. We are living is such a bad time for our economy. People are losing jobs and homes left and right. Not only am I thankful for my home--but also the fact that I have a job I go to everyday. I am not talking about just having money. I am thankful I have a job that allows me to teach students how to read and write, and allows me to inspire them to follow their dreams. I teach them that it is okay to be different, to think outside the box, and to lead by example. There is no greater feeling than knowing that when a student walked into my class, they knew nothing about school, and now at the end of November, many of them are reading! It is such joy to see the look on their face when they make the connection of books I read in class to things in their lives! Or, the first time they sound out a word and write it without my help--so awesome. Haha, but as much I teach them everyday, I also learn something new from them everyday--it’s a two way street. :)
Mark Ballas. I am SO thankful that earlier this year, I was able to meet Mark Ballas. Leading up to the gig, I was excited, yet very nervous. Would Mark be a nice person, or someone who has his nose in the air with cockiness? Would he be like he is on tv or someone completely different? I am so thankful that Mark was such a gentleman. Definitely what you see is what you get: down to earth, funny, and very nice. ! He is one great example of how celebrities are just regular people. I am so thankful that he made that night a night I know I will never forget. I am also thankful for all the new friends I have made BECAUSE of him: Yes, I mean all of my new twitter friends :) Everyday, I think about how awesome it is that we all stick together, work together, and talk (good things) about our main common topic (Mark) :) Mark, if you are reading this, I just wanted you to know that, please keep being awesome!!
So, from me to all of you: I hope you all have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!
