I feel like I have so much to write about that it makes me not to want to even start. So I decided this would mostly be a picture blog instead. Besides, picture blogs are much more interesting for everyone. I will say that I had a good Chirstmas hanging out with my sister in LA. Then I was able to change my flight and go to Arkansas for New Years and spend two days with my mom, dad, sister (who flew out as well), and brother. Sorry to those of you reading this from Arkansas but I was only home for about 48 hours and I didn’t call anyone to get together. I just really wanted to spend it with family. My brother and I ended up driving back from Arkansas to Utah so he could continue on to school in Idaho. We just got in yesterday afternoon to my apartment and he left this moring and is now in Idaho. Thankfully the weather for most of the drive was good. Well except for about two hours Sunday morning driving in New Mexico. I was pretty much the snow plow on that back highway and it’s a really good thing not many were on the roads because putting on my breaks would have proven difficult. I guess not WOULD have, it was. Three little puppies had wandered onto the middle of the road and I thought for sure we were going to hit them but after a tense moment of swerving and whatnot we passed by safely. There must be something about New Mexico because the last time I drove through there with my brother we almost hit a drunk man walking across the road at night. Seriously. Anway, here are some pics:
These were some of the stairs of death that my sister and I hiked while in LA. I think we climbed over 400 stairs that day.
This was the henna tattoo that I got. The photo copied paper said that it meant serenity. For all I know it says “I eat pooh.” It’s already faded, lasts 3 weeks my eye, and now I just look like I don’t bathe. Nice.
Me hanging out with my new friend in Chinatown.
My sister bought my brother a Mexican wrestling mask for Christmas so we’re just trying on the different Christmas hats.
We went bowling one night to get out of the house. I have no clue what my siblings are doing in those first pictures but we all had fun. I kicked everyone’s trash the first game and bowled a 167 and that bottom pic might be the only one I took where I’m actually smiling and not making a face.
Just making faces. We do that a lot in my family. Well I do anyway.
My brother and his band recorded a CD and this is him singing along to himself in the car somewhere in Oklahoma.
Even though I’m sick of flying and driving in the car I had a great time visiting with everyone. I don’t have any pics of hanging out with my dad but it was good getting to see and visit with him as well. The only regret is that my oldest sister and her family couldn’t be with us. But maybe next year!
