A Traditional Christmas, or Something Like That

We had an interesting Christmas time at my house. I blame it on the snow, but at the same time I know that the snow is beautiful. I love watching it fall at looking out on fresh snow. It was somewhat of a nuisance this time. I think most of the holidays was spent shoveling and trying to keep the snow under control. My dad got snowed in at work, my car has gotten stuck 4 times and counting, a water line on our street broke, and I really do not like driving on icy roads. Anyways, it was nice to spend some time with my sister and her family. One of presents was a digital camera so now I can start putting pictures on the blog.
This picture is of Tanner. He loved the chair that Carson got for Christmas and was very particular about where to put it and how to sit in it.

My other nephew wanted to make silly faces at the camera. He loved his games that he got and wanted to play them constantly.
After all of this was said and done, we really did have a great Christmas and we were all so happy when Dad got home the next day at 2 p.m. It was also great to talk to my little bro, who is not so little any more. He is currently serving a mission. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

I Don't Wanna Grow Up

Finals week was a little stressful for me because of the weather, finals stuff, and traveling. I was not only trying to get through finals, but I was job searching. Things got a little crazy I have been to a total of 6 Christmas parties this year and I have had a lot of other stuff going on. For most students, finals week means the start of a break. For me, it means the start of the adult world. I am done with college, for the time being. That means I have to be mature and responsible. I have always heard that you are only as old as you feel and I do not feel like I should be an adult yet. I will always be a kid at heart. I echo the words of the lost boys in Peter Pan, "..(I) don't wanna grow up!" Anyway, wish me luck in the job search and if anyone hears of any good jobs, anywhere, let me know. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

It's Snowing

The truth is that I have had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. It has been difficult with everything else that is going on in my life. Last night, I was talking with a group of friends and we got on the topic of snow. We all wanted to see snow for one reason or another. We were all a little bit sad that there had not been a lot of snow. This morning when I woke up there was a little bit of snow but not enough to cover the ground. As the day has progressed, more wet snow has fallen. It is beautiful..... a little cold, but beautiful. Maybe this will help me feel the Christmas spirit a little bit more.

My Thanksgiving Week

There was so much going on at certain parts of the week. I will not share them all, but I will share some. On Saturday, I got to attend a Spanish session at the temple. That was amazing and I miss speaking and listening to Spanish. It just is not the same since the mission. Since then, I have been listening to Spanish music. I want to be able to speak with them again. Anyway, SUnday night I headed down to Richmond to visit a friend from the msision and spent the night there. I ended up in Logan on Monday morning and made it home in time to get to work. OI worked Tuesday and Wednesday as well.

Thanksgiving was nice, but we misssed Brady a lot. It was differnt without him and his funny self. My sister and her family came on Thanksgiving night after already having dinner at his parents house. They are troopers. It was nice to have them here and we had a great time.

On Friday, Heather and my mom wore me out shopping. I actually got almost all of my shopping done though so I guess that was good. I also got to see my friend Amie who lives in Utah. I have not seen her in a while.

All in all it was a great Thanksgiving break and now it is back to school for a couple more weeks.
