the one with family

i love chirstmas because of family
i get to be done with school
and spend time with the ones that matter

now a little off subject
i have spent time with my cousin sam today
who i call SJ because he is soooo
like SJ from the blindside

i have two really good quotes from him

he was doing some work for my gramie
and he said "how much am i gonna get paid?"
she said "$20"
he then said "i'm LDS, not payless"
he's such a trip

then as we were coming back from church
i had radio disney playing and justin beiber's baby came on
i said hey sam do you know who this is?
and he said "yeah, it's justin swearword"
oh sam, thank you for restoring my faith in your generation

your generation
that is in love with "justin swearword"
and a little skank named hannah montana
and all the crazies

you sam will be one of our hopes!

the one with the nativity puzzle

december is the only time that my favorite puzzle,
one i could do for ours and not get bored,
makes it's appearence

it's seriously the coolest and i wish i had a picture
[cue me googling it, and finding it]
so this one is kind of lame, but you get the picture. 

as far as i can remember mom made them
at an enrichment night, or something like that
for tons of people, cause my grama has one

but mom's are cooler, mom's are painted so you
see the faces of the wise men, shepherds, mary and joseph.
and you see jesus in the manger (the little yellow thing, in the corner)
and behind the animals it looks like a stable

i'll have to take a picture when i'm home
but i love it because my mom made it
and because it's a really cool way to remember
that christmas is all about Jesus

the one with pumpkin pie

i'm not really a fan of pie
and i don't love pumpkin pie either
but if i'm going to eat any pie
it's going to be pumpkin and homemade

but dad's pumpkin pie,
which i think is his grama's recipe,
is so stinking good!

i don't eat the crust,
just the filling
but it is heaven

dad only makes it this time of the year
and it makes me think of christmas
and family
and that's why i love it

the one with temple square at christmas

so this is a picture of my friend amy and i
at temple square sunday night after the devo
at the reflection pool by temple square

this is perhaps one of my best pictures EVER
the fog that night made everything beautiful

but everything is covered at temple square in lights!
it looks so beautiful
and it just makes me happy

the one with the first presidency christmas devotional

so each year the
first presidency of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
gives a christmas devotional

i kind of feel like it's the kick off to the season
and it reminds me of the real meaning
of my favorite holiday
[besides my birthday]

but the reason i love it the most
is because my mom loves it
and it reminds me of her
and then i feel a little bit closer
like 1,750 miles closer

this year, like last year, i had tickets
to the conference center for it
which i tried to bribe my mom with,
she didn't take it :(

but it's okay cause she watched it at home
and it made me feel close

like in this song kenny loggins sang,
at least i think it was him,
a song that had this in it
"And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star"

it helped me to know that we were watching the
same devotional

the one with december's theme

so now that my blogging for a month is over
what am i to do?

i was thinking a picture a day
and why i took it
but i want it to be christmas-y
[so i'll have to save the picture idea for another month]

and i'm just not feeling
all christmas-y here in utah
i'm over the snow!
and i'm over the cold

i am dreaming of a warmer christmas
one on the other side of the country
which is almost 2,000 miles away
[yes i mapquested it]

so here it is
my theme for this month
a reason i love christmas
each day i'll list something new
and i'll probably expound on it!
ready, set, go!

day 31 - the one with a habit i wish i didn't have

i wish i didn't say mean things

when people bother me,
to someone i'm friends with
and i know i can trust,
i say things...sometimes really mean
sometimes stuff they totally deserve
but i still shouldn't say anything
i should just keep my mouth shut
which is why it will be part of my new years resolution

day 30 - the one with my favorite song

so if you couldn't tell yet
i'm indecisive

which is why one song is WAY to hard for me
so i've decided on a genre

which is...drum roll please
the 80's!

they are definitely my favorite
that was the good stuff
and it's all thanks to my dad
that i love the stuff

day 29 - the one with what i've learned in the last month

let me preface this by saying distinguishing
a month of me is too hard
so i'm gonna do this semester

i've learned that math can kick my butt
if i let it
but the tutoring lab is my best friend

i've learned that being friends with
everybody is not worth it

i've learned to stay no
when i just can't do things

i've learned that i'm most happy
when i'm with family

and i've learned that
one moment can make a difference
in someone's life

day 28 -the one with picture of me from last year and now and how i've changed

so this is as close to a year as i can get
which is like last october-ish

well let me re-phrase this
the only one that is blog worthy

i'm sure i have more on my laptop but 
my laptop is kind of out of commission
and facebook lost like three months of pictures

i've changed because now i'm out of the plaza
i've had an AMAZING roommate!
and i would still be living with her
if she wasn't going on a mission to switzerland!
isn't that super cool?!?

i also work a lot harder
and manage my money better now

i'm more appreciative of what
people do to me

i have a better sense of humor
and am more comfortable with myself
