Christmas Festivities!

I love Christmas and really the whole Christmas season. I had fun decorating my apartment with my roommates and we all had fun at our ward Christmas party, we pretty much had an awesome table and just had fun. Jonny, Ashley and I went to Temple Square to enjoy the lights, it was Ashley's first trip. It was beautiful and we enjoyed it, despite the freezing cold.

Then of course I returned to California and went to San Diego for Christmas. We went down on the 20th and just got back on the 27th. Taryn and Grant came down too, so we were happy to have them. We went to the beach one day and Taryn and I braved the cold air and water and went in, fun but freezing. Karleigh and I hung out with our cousins Breanne and Brittany, we went to a movie and a big Christmas celebration at this guys house, with lots of decorations, it was pretty impressive, then we went to our cousin Trevor's house and watched a movie. We of course had our Christmas Eve dinner at my aunt and uncle's. I always love it, all of my dad's side of the family gets together, we have dinner, sing songs, play bells (they are like pipes that when hit play different notes), and open presents, this year we were treated to a performance by my cousins son, it was adorable.

Then on Christmas morning my family opened presents from each other then in the evening my mom's family came over to celebrate. It was lots of fun and I always love seeing family and catching up. I'm always sad when Christmas is over, I love the excitement and

feeling that goes along with the whole season but I am excited for the new year, I hope it holds
new and exciting things for everyone!

I'm done!

In some ways this semester went so fast but at the same time the beginning of the school year seems so long ago! Either way I can't believe the semester is over and the Christmas is less than a week away. I haven't posted in awhile, I had too much to do at the end of the semester, I don't think I have gone to bed before 2 for over two weeks, but that is done now, I can sleep again, I'm so excited! I also get to go home tomorrow, and then I head down to San Diego on Saturday and Taryn and Grant get to come! I'm pretty excited for all of it and then I have my last semester of college, now that is hard to believe it doesn't feel like four years have gone by! I went sledding last night with Jonny, some of my roommates, Karleigh and Lexi, it was fun, I have a fear of sledding but I did it anyway. Also an interesting note, since the last time I posted Jonny has caught more kittens to take to get fixed and then to a place to be adopted so there are currently 8 cats in the house (that includes the 3 that are his.) All of the strays are named after Disney characters we have Meeko, Thumper, Bagheera, Nala and Hades (who is the really mean dad cat, I call him cow Hades because he looks a lot like a cow) There is one more kitten to catch and its name will be Koda (from Brother Bear). So yeah that is a run down of the cats most of them are really sweet Bagheera is kinda mean and obviously so is Hades. Now I'm going to start catching up on some sleep and the California here I come!

Weird Things tag

Five weird or unknown things about me...
1) I get Botox and I have had plastic surgery, The Botox is for migraines (who knew it could help?) and the plastic surgery was to get a birthmark removed from my forehead
2) My fingers bend back really far, I'm not double jointed, they just bend far
3) I'm slightly dyslexic, I have an extremely hard time telling my left from my right, to the point that it is embarrassing and inconvenient, I have a hard time writing lowercase b's and d's the right way, and I switch numbers around like if the number is 249 I'll say 429. Also, I didn't crawl as a child which is an early sign of it.
4) I went into my freshman year of college knowing what I wanted to major in and I have kept my major. I know it isn't that weird but most people don't know or change majors.
5) I have only kissed one boy in my life and I intend to keep it that way.
