Thanksgiving and Christmas Time!

My goals of being a good blogger never come true, so I'll stop promising things. :)

I love this time of year. I can honestly say that Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite National Holidays. I just feel so blessed this time of year. I know that most of you have known me for a long time now, and I want to thank you for putting up with me for 14 (almost 15!) years now. I'm so grateful for you and what you've done in my life and the life of my family. All I can say is Thank You, and I mean it. :)

This Thanksgiving my family and I all went up to Washington to visit my mom's parents. There was so much snow in Seattle that they closed the Seattle Airport and we had to sit in the SLC airport for 6 hours. It was extremely boring. If you have ever tried to sleep in one of those impossible-to-sleep-in chairs, you know what I mean. although we had tons of turbulence and slid on the runway as we landed, I survived and had a great time with my Grandma!

We were able to go to and 'old folks' home and eat Thanksgiving dinner there with my Great Grandma and some of her friends. It was very neat. I really enjoyed it! We even played cards after pie. Those older folks are very sly.... They cheat! :)

Black Friday shopping was my favorite part of the whole vacation. I did try to attempt to wake up at 2:30 am but to no prevail. Sleep won that battle and we left at 5 am instead. We started with Kohls where I stood in the dressing room for about 2 hours trying on things that my Grandma and Great Aunt gave me. Currently those clothes are in a box my Grandma still needs to send to me... All in all, this vacation has been one of my favorite this year.

School is going good. I really like High School, although I feel as a Freshman we aren't given many opportunities to do anything. There are a minimum amount of classes that we can take, and we rarely are admitted into extra curricular activities. It is kind of a bummer, but I'll be more excited for next year!

I do regret not trying out for the soccer team this year. I believe it was fear. Fear that I wasn't good enough. Fear that I wasn't skinny enough. I just have fear, and I'm not over that fear yet. I finished my last year with Provo Rec. with my team being undefeated League Champions! 8-0-2 (wins-loses-ties). It was a great year and I hope I'll be able to play soccer with all those girls again!!

In the end, I'm very grateful for all I have, especially you. Thank you for everything. :)

High School

Well summer is over and now I am a big girl... in high school!!!! Although constantly being teased about being a freshman, having friends change completely when they're around other people, having to quit band, and the huge seniors, everything is going just great! I really do like Seminary though. Seminary and English are my two favorite subjects right now. My seminary teacher is Bro. Pearce, who also is in my ward (which is totally sweet!). Although I am spoiled and have release time for seminary, I still have to have all of my classes passed with 0 no grades so that I'll have enough credits to graduate! :) I kind of feel weird among the crowd, especially since I'm not 16 and I have to wait 1 1/2 more years to date. It's very odd to see people ask other people out, then know that I won't be able to join in. But hey, if the prophet says I can't do it, then I'll trust him. I haven't made any really new "friends" yet, but it is only the 4th day of school. I'll be better on blogging, I promise!! (and that is the truth :) ).

What are YOU thankful for?

After I watched this video, I really did start to think about all the things I'm thankful for. Even though some of the things include pie, boys, and soft pillows, I am still thankful for SO many things. I'm especially thankful for the gosple and the affect it's had on my life. I have no clue where I would be without it.

I'm grateful for my parents, and all they do for me! I'm grateful that they got married in the temple, so that my family can all live together forever!

I'm grateful for Young Womens and Personal Progress. Doing Personal Progress just makes life better! I don't feel like its a chore, or some extra homework. It helps me with everyday problems and questions. I'm thankful for everyone in my ward that's in Young Womens. I love you guys!! :) You are some of the best friends I'll ever had! (That includes leaders!)

Thank you to all my friends! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU! You all have had an affect on my life, and because of that, I'm a better person today than I was yesterday.

I love you ALL and have a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

No School Today...

So there was no school today. I really didn't want to stay home alone, so I went to the mall with Sandra. We got stopped by the same type of booths and they tried to sell us $60 nail things. It was so annoying! The first lady that stopped us started to buff Sandra's nails. After she was done she said, "So did you like that or love that?" Sandra said she liked it, and then the lady asked, "So how will you pay?" We were so confused, and then she asked us how we would pay IF we were to buy the $60 package of stuff. We said cash and she asked us how much we had with us. Sandra said $2 and I said the same. Then the salesperson said, "No, your lying." Totally rude! We walked for a little while longer and got stopped by another guy for the same product!! He was nicer, and he lowered the price of a smaller $30 package to $14, but was still mad when I said, "Not today". WEIRD!!!

Sorry, no good excuses for not updating in like 6 months. I'm just lazy, I guess. I'll work on getting it updated. Maybe that will be one of my New Year resolutions......

Anyways, life has been good. Since last I've written: I've been to Philadelphia, NYC, and Washington DC. I've gone to 8th grade. My grandpa has died. And I still have a GPA of 4.0. Wow. Interesting huh? I PROMISE, I'll do better. :)

My dog ate my blog!!

That's my excuse for not updating in a while. ;) Well, there's nothing much to update on. Miriam and I went to the Temple last week, and that was fun. I passed the term with all A's. I went and saw Miss Mac's play (which was AMAZING!). I just got back from the Draper Temple Detication, which was so cool to see! There. Now your updated with me. Here are some random pictures I found to make it... let's say "interesting"... uh hu?
