So, apparently people from all over the world stumble across my blog... for example, check out this screen shot from today...Yes, if you can read under the "Pageviews by Countries", it says:
United States ---- 16
Australia --- 2
United Kingdom --- 1
Israel --- 1
Romania --- 1
Thailand --- 1

Weird, huh? I guess that's one of the interesting things about having a public blog.
It makes me happy that my voice is getting to the world.
See you later!

What a way... start Christmas vacation!

First up.... the last day of school. Boo.

We had a wonderful music assembly, for which I both Teched and Performed. Sequoia and I got excused from class to plan out the amazing light show, and then we did the assembly. Twice. My feet ache at the thought...

Then, I had a flute lesson at my flute teacher's house. That's always fun.

Later that night, while regaining my stamina, aka napping in front of the fireplace, my little sis press the phone to my ear, startling me into consciousness.

The despicable recorded message said that I sluffed all four periods. Fail. I actually DID go to Band and P.E., and I was excused from Geometry and Geography. I have a bone to pick with the attendance office.

Then, on Saturday was the Ward Christmas Party. It involved a breakfast of hash-browns, a french horn ensemble, and a 40-minute play put on by the Primary children.

After that, I pretty much laid around until my mom made me get in jeans and do my jobs. I got to make dinner that night. Me + Hot Oil = Delicious Navajo Tacos and a surprising lack of burns.

Then, today, we had the Christmas Program for Sacrament Meeting, and then a quiet party in Sunday School, and then a mini Christmas Program for Young Womens.

And now, I'm sitting here blogging. Exciting, right? Yes, actually, it is. Annie's making a delicious treat, and the rest of the kids are sitting in front of the fire reading.

Warm, fuzzy feelings?


This is....

This is the season beloved of the year. Sing a rhyme, Christmas time soon will be here. Tell the true story of Jesus' birth, when, as a baby, he came to the earth.

This is the new star, shining so bright, lighting the world on that first Christmas night.

This is the angel proclaiming the birth, singing "Hosannah!" and "Peace on the earth!"

These are the shepherds, humble and mild, hastening to worship the heavenly child.

These are the wise men who followed the star, frankincense, gold, and myrrh brought from afar.

See the sweet mother, Mary so fair, Joseph who guided the donkey with care.

See the dear baby of Bethlehem, Little Lord Jesus, the Savior of men

Wishing You and Yours a Very Merry Christmas

Dear Best Friend...

Dear Best Friend...
Thank you.
Thank you for being there.
To hold me when I cry.
To laugh with me when I was happy.
Thank you.
For 45-minute drives from each others houses
Just to see each others faces
For the inside jokes
Like "godo"
Like the Sister Princesses
Like the Surfer Girls
Thank you
For the going-on-13 years of friendship we've shared
For swing-set surfboards
For sleepovers/late nights
For homemade french fries
For eating the frosting first
I want to remind you
Of our joys
Of our sorrows
Of our passing notes in class
And of our never getting caught ;)
I want to say sorry
For the fights
For the pain
For the suffering
For the obsessive rantings
And I want to thank you again
For the ever-constant emailing
And Instant Messaging
And the ever-constant bond that prevails over all the little things.
Thank you.
Signed, Your BFF,

2010 Marching Band Tour: Disneyland!

I'll make the introduction short: I went to Disneyland with the Pleasant Grove High School Marching Band, and here's some pictures. How was that? Short enough? Good....

Stuck at a Love's Gas Station in Beaver, Utah after one of the buses snapped a water line....

When we finally got to Disneyland (After an overnight drive!)

Our various adventures @ Disneyland


There's lots more, but not a lot of time on my hands!
