When dad, will and zac went to skiing on saturday mom and i had lunch with the hyde girls and then did some shopping. I got a new pillow-cause the ones I got in september were crap, a chain for my personal progress medallion, a new set of pearl earings-cause you can never have enough, and a new green shopping bag it's polka-dotted!After all our shopping we went to gramie's for dinner. Sarah's, Emily's, Dustin's and Cassie's families were there too. It was really nice, will was crashing from his day of skiing so mom and i took him home. But before we got in the car i slipped down gramies front steps, i thought i would spare you the battle marks-the stairs won.
I like things I'm good at. If I'm not good at it, it frustrates me and I'll quit most times. Like the cello-I wasn't good like the rest of my class so I quit,and I didn't like the teacher. But that is not what this is about. I wasn't good at skating at hollywood connections for the longest time so mom took us a lot so I would get better and I think i'm gonna have to be mom. When we got there I was gripping the wall with both hands, scared to death. I fell once, okay twice, and I brused my right pinkie finger but all in all it was fun. Oh! and I went around the rink twice, in a row, without holding the side and I went pretty fast-all WITHOUT falling! I really want to go again soon. Maybe even to the gallivan plaza.

There was snow on the ground, and that's all that I wanted. So my Chirstmas was easy. Mom made us recreate how they used to walk in on Christmas mornings. I got my girls camp box, a cd, some pink rain/snow boots, and some other stuff. I got my dad a tie, a bag for my mom and then helped the boys put songs onto their new MP3 players. We went to emily's and played and then stopped at sarah's. After all that fun we went back to grama's we just hung out and then got our presents from grama. i got snow pants, a nike duffel bag and a cafe rio gift card. After we finished presents we just hung out with the family and had some fun. Will and Zac played in the snow forever!
Each year we get to open one present on Christmas Eve, it's always pj's but this year mom and dad wrapped presents before we got our pj's so we waited. read the luke 2 christmas story and then finally we were allowed to open our beautiful pj's. it started to feel like christmas.will and zac got footie pj's from target and i got some pink flannel pj's and a grey waffle shirt. gotta love traditions

It's okay you can be jealous! While I was doing becca's hair for friday night's performance autumn, becca's roommate, came in and asked janarae, a friend of ours, and I if we had tickets tonight to the concert and we both said no. Well janarae had plans and I had nothing to do so autumn and I went. I loved it! And her tickets were still way good-plaza 13! Some of the songs weren't as powerful but it was still amazing and I loved it. I'm thinking about standing in the standby line for tonights! I was talking to my mom and I told her I was doing becca's hair. She wanted pictures and I only had the after ones so I told her I would take a picture of it right after I did it that night. So Before is right after I did them and after is after she slept on them and went and hung out with evan!

Because I am freaking amazing and have the best connections I got to go to Mo Tab's Christmas Concert. I had two tickets and tried relentlessly to find a guy to go with me but nobody could go so I asked my aunt lindsay. And don't get your undies in a bundle and ask why I didn't ask my aunt emily, if you didn't know it was her birthday. I didn't ask her cause I gave her two tickets, one for her and her husband AND a parking pass. They came in after I was in my seat and then had to rush to be able to get home at a descent time. We sat in plaza four which is pretty much as good as you can get, unless you are a general authority or higher.We were exactly 12 rows from the front! 12!!! I was so excited! My dancer friends did really good! Becca's hair looked amazing, I wonder who did it (cough-me-cough)! And the grandpa from Gilmore girls was there! He narrarated some of the program and held my friend becca's hand and said "this is our time" and they chatted too! If you've seen the prince of egypt you'll like this! So the guy who is the singing voice of the Moses's father-in-law sang a lot of songs but he also sang that song from the movie! I was so excited! I wish I could go again!

I had a really bad week this week and so I asked my uncle to take me down to BYU to see some friends. I spent some time with them and then went down to Spanish Fork and all the places we used to go. We used to go to the drive inn all the time! They had the best pennie candies! Dad would go to the thirst station and take me in sometimes, and for some reason I always liked the steps. ONE MAN BAND, does it get any better than that? You get to call in your order and then if you were the lucky child you could go pick it up. I always asked for a scone. Barry's was good, I remember going there with tiffany. Hogi Yogi is so good, even better than subway. I loved their kids meals when I was little. The first time I went to Hickory Kist was with my dad and a lady from his work. The sadwhich was so big and good. They had the best fudge too! I remember playing baseball at the feilds and the easter egg hunts! I remember going to Jo-Ann's with my mom. The infamous mortuary! I loved this pool-it was so cool, I wish I had better pictures of the pool cause I would have put them up. Mom used to take me to the library a lot, I had some feild trips here too. And on the fourth of july that's where they had the chilli cook off. I liked the army's best! Dad loved the C-A-L store, we went a lot-or at least I remember going a lot. This is where we would park at the Gas Station, always! Dad even has a mug from here, he would let me get a drink sometimes and I would get SO excited! When I was little I wanted nothing more than to grow up and go to Spanish Fork High. I did stuff there, I don't remember what it was, but I loved the place. The only theatre in Spanish Fork, I lost a tooth here, I took a feild trip here, so many memories. L-A, L-A-R, L-A-R-S-E-N. Larsen! Larsen! That's the cheer we yelled at the county track meet that I was in in 4th grade-I had the cutest little red flower shorts and I was a track star! I went here for 4th and most of 5th grade. Good 'ol Wendy's! We would come here and get me chicken nugget and sometimes a frosty and then we would go get they boys food at mcdonalds and let them play on the play place. That's the Junior High fields. This is where my practices for soccer always were. Yeah, I played sports when I was a kid. Provo! How I've missed you! The bi pole thing is outside Provo Towne Centre. The name always bugged me as a kid, and still does, cause that's not how the average american would spell it. But we took a christmas card picture here a long time ago so I kinda tried to recreate it. The big nice building is the Provo Tabernacle. I used to sing here and man those dresses were hideous. Plus there was always a nativity here at christmas when I was little. Los 3 Amigos! They had some of the best mexican food and they had a jukebox and Dad always let me pick songs! Los Hermanos was really good, I only remember eating there once or twice but I know it was good, plus I relly likes that the sign was pink. Mom liked an art store that was somewhere by Los Hermanos but I couldn't find it. Heritage has good memories in my heart. I stayed there for EFY in 2007. I had so many things happen to me, good and not so good. You gotta love the BYU creamery, I couldn't find the other one but it is so good! The only milk i'll drink is their chocolate milk. And their ice cream is way good. I was gonna stop but there wasn't a parking spot. This museum is way cool, I went here on a couple field trips and one time my mom got to come with me! Love the stadium, I really want to go to a game. I remember some of the places we used to park too. We used to come to this America First A LOT! I knew right where it was. The RC Willey is where we bought our Lazy Boy chair that we still have. When the Krispy Kreme first opened we were so excited, we used to take the boys there to let them watch the doughnuts get made-they were so entertained. Where the missionary mall is there used to be a Mommy and Me store. And there was a Soup and Salad, it was so yummy-sure miss it. And this RC Willey is where we bought my Aunt Lisa's banana chair and when I would go to her dorm I used to play in it forever.

Today was jam packed full of fun! I went to the nutcracker with some of my family! It was a great way to start off the season. After lunch, that wasn't all that great-for me at least-we went to some junior high in davis county. While we were there I went to the bathroom in the faculty bathroom...i felt like i was breaking the rules it was so much fun. They had a nice little sitting area before the bathroom with some really good lotion. This was sam's game! He's so good, he's either gonna me in Soccer or Basketball, professionally that is. Keep an eye out for him. So I took frontrunner back into salt lake and i got bored waiting for it so i decided to have fun taking pictures. I bought the tiara and a matching wand, not pictured, for two dollars a the nutcracker cause I wanted one dang it! I got some pretty good looks from people while I was wearing :). It was becca's birthday and her mom was nice enough to treat us with applebee's via gift card! It was so good. We got the 2 for $20 deal and it was so worth it. Appetizer-onion rings, Entree-(becca)bacon cheeseburger and (me) chicken fingers( i haven't had them in forever so don't judge me). And I got some of the waiters to sing her happy birthday but of course i didn't think to pull out my camera...i'm getting used to being the sole photo-taker, i want my mom to come take pictures for me. And did you know that when you tell them it's you're celebrating your birthday they desert for them is free! I didn't know that, so don't make fun of me. Oh and p.s. My hair looks way good and I don't know if you do this but when I look at pictures I notice my hair and i was def having a good hair day today. And my eyelashes look marvelous if i do say so myself. You have to accentuate the postives right?

Obama won and let's just say I am so freaking mad! Way to go America, run our country further into the ground-cause it's not far enough now is it? We'll just leave the rest unsaid. So the only good things about today were is that I got free Ben an Jerry's Ice Cream and it hailed! I took a video!

When I go up to visit family I take trax from my door to the frontrunner station and then get off frontrunner in llayton most of the time but this time it was woodscross. I was really on my way to woodscross. On the way into salt lake a guy got hurt apparently and the UTA people had to file a report and with the po po's. The EMT's were cute, well two of them. I was just playing around with the settings on my camera while gramie voted early at her public library.

Becca and I went to walmart that afternoon to get ready!We got all dressed up and then went to the olive garden for dinner! After, I had to make up a speed reading class with the sister missionaries. We convinced derek to come with us on our way to the movie. We had a light snack at the food court cause we ate at like 5:30 and our movie was at 9:45. We saw a HSM Build a Bear and then becca and I took pictures in front of the HSM cut outs. After the show we took some pictures, and walked back to the dorms. Oh, but first I had to take more pictures with the cut outs! notice the one on the bottom left!

It was so hard to be away from home for Cully's birthday! I miss that baby so much! I can' wait to come home this summer and just hold him! Becca and janarae came to smiths with me to get eggs to make the cake! So of course I had to share with them. I would have a picture of me but I looked like a hot mess.

I am repenting for not putting riley at the top of my priorities. I would just like to say that RILEY is my most favorite person ever, and no one can replace her ever. I miss hanging out with her and taking her to the movies and sleeping over with her. But I know she has found new friends that she love more but I am okay with that!

Barnes and Noble and Remember What You Stand For are on my list. Not that I don't like them, it's just that they take forever to get things to you! I ordered a book from Barnes and Noble on the 12 and it still hasn't gotten here. I called yesterday to see what the freaking problem was and all they said is to call back after 12 business days. Big help and great customer service. There is this CTR website that I love cause everything is like two or three dollars cheaper than Desert Book and they have the sizes you want PLUS it seems like they always have a deal on shipping-right now it's free! But I ordered a shooting star CTR ring because I need one badly. I ordered it on the sixteenth and it should so be here this week! It's driving me crazy! Well I'm off to COM 122!

Brother Adrian Juchau is an amazing man! The second day of his class at LDSBC he made us sign an agreement stating that if we needed help we would ask for it. For those of you who don't know, I signed up for 18 credits this semester! Crazy, I know but I thought I could handle it. I was doing pretty good just having a hard time with Macroeconomics, ECON 162. I would try to study-it would be pretty hard-then I would pray and ask for help and it would get even more confusing. I was having a hard time because I didn't want to fail so I was going to ask for help from the learning assistance lab but there was practically a class in there so I felt so discouraged. I was about to leave campus when I thought about brother adrian, I knew he would be able to help me so I went to his office. We talked about how scared I was to fail the class and the pros and cons of dropping the class and within 20 minutes I, with his encouragement, decided to drop the class. So this 18 credit nut has become a 15 credit genius! I feel really good now. I can eat lunch and then go to the tuesday devotional. In fact I should head over there so I should have a good seat. P.S. I wouldn't be surprised if he failed me for putting this picture up! :)

Let me just say I love jenn! She is my favorite person ever, and she loves me for being the crazy, out there ME! She got my number saturday of orientation and from then on she has texted me with cool things to do. The Humanitarian Aid Center was one of those activites, we were able to make packages to help with hurricane relief! It was so much fun, I love hanging out and helping those in need of help. I can't wait to go again.
