YAY! I am super excited about Thanksgiving and Christmas being right around the corner! All the preparations are so exciting! Among all the Christmas program practices, decorating the house, cooking more food than we will EVER be able to eat, the FREEZING cold weather, and the Christmas lights everywhere, it's really starting to feel like the 'happy holidays'. This is also such a great time for friends and family to come together.
This past weekend a few friends came into town, and we went to the ULM campus and took soooo many pictures by the Christmas lights. The lights were so pretty, and we had a bucket load of fun! Here are just a few of the pics we took... ENJOY!
This is a day in my life - - the day of the concert! We had a blast making this video. And, yes, I was shivering cold after that trip through the fountain!
I Feel Change! This is one of the songs on my project and is actually THE song that cinched the title of the CD. The folks you see in this clip are just everyday people around town... at school, at work, coming and going. This footage was used at the first Hayley Masters concert to prompt the song "I Feel Change"...
Here are truly Hayley thoughts about "Seasons of Change" :) I hope that this message gives you hope if you are going through something you don't understand. Just remember, God is near... and, the music says it all... "Be Near".
I had the opportunity to sing for the Christian Homeschool Association West Monroe CO-OP yesterday morning, and it was so exciting! I was very honored to sing for such a great group. Neil Roshto (my awesome guitar teacher) and I rocked out on our guitars to "Be Near Me"... You guys ROCK!!! :) A little over 100 folks showed up... it was AWESOME! If you were there, leave a comment :) !
O.K. so this past Saturday our youth group went to Six Flags... and we had a blast! We left bright and early at 5 A.M., and I think I was the only one really awake... I'm pretty sure my hyperness was irritating everyone else, but oh well I was super stoked!
On the way, I made a bet with one of my friends, Alex, that if we made it there before 10:30, I would get all of his money... lol... well thanks to our pawpaw driver, Jerry, we got there at 11. So I lost... but it's cool. :)
We finally went into the park and rode every ride possible! It was soooo much fun! By 5 o'clock we were all exhausted and ready to leave, so we headed out. On the way home we stopped by a store and got a little snack to tide us over until we got home. My good friend, Frankie, bought himself the biggest KIT-KAT bar imaginable! Well, we were in the parking lot just chillin until all 40 of us kids were ready to climb back on the van. Apparently the giant KIT-KAT fell out of the van because about an hour later Frankie starts freaking out because he can't find his candy bar! After about 25 minutes of Aundi, Brad, and me crawling around under seats looking for it... all the while trying not to wake everyone else up, we stop on the side of the road and start tearing the van apart to find this Frankie's beloved candy bar! By this time, it was about 9 o'clock. I had worn some ROCKIN green polka dotted socks and my UGG boots thinking it was going to be cold. While we were frantically looking for the candy, Brad thought it would be funny to take my boots and put them on the side of the interstate! As I jumped out to get them, Brad decides to chunk them in the woods... so we were out there... in the woods... late at night... in the cold... AND I was barefoot... looking for my boots! When we found them, we headed back to the van only to find that the van was no longer where we left it! The van was at the next exit ramp. So Brad and I run to catch the van and head home... and thanks to Frankie's KIT-KAT we got home at about 2 in the morning! :)
I'm sitting here at McAlister's with my great friend (the biggest nerd i know) Mr. Cameron Brister!! A.K.A. BRUSTER! Our lunch was actually going quite well until a woman walked in, in her fishnet hose and go go boots... it wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't at least 72 years old!!! And her hair is redder than Raggedy Ann's : /. And just our luck she, of course, is sitting right across from us... poor Cameron, he is lucky enough to get the great view, and it is such a distraction he completely forgot about his 2 o'clock class!!! Shame shame:(... anyway, now I am off to my art class! I will be blogging more later! :) ***truly*** Hayley ;)
After the concert, I went STRAIGHT to Popeyes to get my usual #1 combo, only to find out that the #1 combo no longer exists! The #1 is now a #2! Fast forward to 1 a.m. I am now drinking hot green tea with honey and lemon, under much protest. It tastes disgusting and makes me ill, but it works, and I'm ready to sing again! :) ***truly*** Hayley ;)
