New Year!!

It's weird that it is already 2011. My birthday has already come and gone again and the holidays are over, but still new and exciting things are happening! I got a new second job that I am really excited about. Robert just had knee surgery and Ashley is getting married in just a few months.

We had an awesome Christmas and got to see family. I just had my 23rd Birthday. Yeah I am 23 now.

We got some really yummy and cute cupcakes instead of a birthday cake for me this ome year and had some scrumptious

I don't think I mentioned in previous posts that we got a new car a few months back and after having it for like a month someone backed into me in a parking lot which was unfortunate but it's all fixed up now and looks just like new again.

Alex's basketball team is doing really well this season. He is planning to take a full schedule of classes next semester and maybe go out for the basketball team here.

Merry Christmas

Christmas is always such a wonderful time of year. We got to spend last weekend with Alex's Family except for Hiromi who had to work :( we had a great time in Redding for a few days. It was rainy on the drive up to Redding and back home. We watched Christmas movies, played scrabble and ate waaaaay to much delicious treats. Collin and Lydia got sooo many gifts it was awesome and they were so excited when Santa dropped off their gifts early so that we could all celebrate Christmas together. Chloe is getting more comfortable with being around other people now she is a little less afraid of everyone now and was comfortable enough to walk around and cuddle up to people it was great I think she enjoyed the holidays.

I was lucky to have Christmas Eve and Christmas day off of work. My Grandparents and Carolyn and Genelle came to visit for Christmas Eve and Christmas day at our house. We hung out and had a nice laid back Christmas. It was a lot of fun. We played Hand and Foot a card game that we always play when we get together we had 2 games going on Christmas Eve night. On Christmas morning we all woke up around 8AM and got ready and sat around the tree and opened presents together. We again ate a lot of delicious treats that we probably shouldn't have, but that's what Christmas is about... eating a bunch of yummy Christmas treats and Sees candies and then going on a diet for your New Year's resolution.. which I am getting a jump start on this year as this week I am going to meet up with a trainer at the gym and start going regularly in January.

We got a lot of great gifts for Christmas this year. Alex and I got a Blu Ray player from his parents and we have already gotten some movies for it. I got an Amazon Kindle! Alex already has one, I am very excited about mine though Its gonna be nice to not have to lug around my huge books anymore and I have the scriptures on it and everything it so great. We got checks and gift cards and movie tickets. I got the Apples to Apples game and we played it on Christmas day. Alex got tools and I got a cook book that I am excited about. We are hoping to see my Aunt, Uncle and Cousins soon when they come to visit if the weather is ok.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Christmas is near

I am so excited for Christmas this year. I love this season. I have really enjoyed the lights, decorations and events that all celebrate the birth of Christ. The Nativity Exhibit was beautiful this year there were so many beautiful Nativity's and they are all so different. I love the Christmas fragrances from Bath and Body Works. Their winter candles and lotions are amazing. I just got the Fresh Balsam candle and I love it!! It just might be my favorite thing I have ever smelled. I took some quick photos of the decorations that are in the house as of now.

Pumpkin Patch

Since Downeast is now rubble in the part of the mall that caught on fire.. I started looking for work and have had a few possibilities. I applied at Wells Fargo for a teller position because I would really like that and it would be a great job. and while I am still waiting on the results of that possibility I had also interviewed at the Pumpkin Patch and got a job there, so that's basically whats going on with me and work as of now. I should be hearing from Wells Fargo by the end of this week. I have had three in person interviews one of which was a group interview and I also had a phone interview. I am hoping it works out because then I could be full time between both jobs.

Alex is loving his basketball coaching experience. He really likes coaching and he is really good at it he might even be the JV head coach next year apparently which would be awesome, but he still needs to go back to school and also decide what he wants to do for a living... goodness..

I decorated the house for Christmas and by "I decorated" I mean it was really all me. nobody else did much decorating at all. I did both big trees and the little tree. I got everything out of the attic and all. I spent a whole day decorating and then half a day doing the big Christmas tree. Alex put up a few ornaments and mom helped me a little bit with the lights. The boys did put the lights up outside, but I get most of the credit for decorating this year. I wanna take some picturees and put them up in a post so hopefully I will find some time to do that :) we will have to wait and see.

I am really enjoying my new job. I really like the people I work with they are all awesome and I am learning a lot working in a new store. I am so excited for Christmas and I have most of my shopping done already thankfully, but I am sure as always there will be some surprises and I'll have to buy something last minute. I really enjoyed the Nativity at the church last weekend. I performed with the ward choir and it was nice I really felt the Christmas spirit singing the words to the songs about Christ's birth it was beautiful.
