Christmas Tradition

We have a wonderful Christmas tradition on our street. Dear Sister Rees across the street puts together these beautiful Luminarias. (They are paper sacks with sand and a candle in the bottom). 

When we first started dad explained that we were lighting the way for Jesus Christ. 

This is a wonderful tradition, I will definitely be starting it when I am settled in my own neighborhood in a few years. It's a great way to remember the true reason for the season.

"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
--Luke 2:13-14

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

I would just like to make a quick post for Rindsie. 

Lindsay is pretty funny sometimes. The other day I got a text message with the following:
"Guess who loves you?? I do! I do! Yes, I do! Yes, I do! (said in talking-to-a-puppy-dog voice.)" 

Also, we were talking on the phone tonight about some stick on tattoo mustaches she and her boyfriend got at school. She was talking about drawing a face on her hand and giving him a mustache. Our conversation looked something like this:

"I'll put the mustache on my thumb!" -Linds

"Yeah, that'd be really fun. But you'd have to put the mustache on your pointer finger." -Me

"You're right! I'm so glad I talked to you!" -Linds

"Yeah, if you didn't you'd have looked like an idiot, walking around with a mustache on your chin." -Me

I love you Princess Blossom Flower! Thank you for helping me through the hard things and always making me laugh. Love your face off!



This past week we had a much needed break from school. I saw my family for the first time since August! I love being in good ol' PG. It always brings back a rush of memories from high school. (I'm not sure if that's good or bad. You take your pick)

Anyway, my beloved little sister loves taking pictures. Here are a few of the awesome moments she captured:

Why yes, I do always look like this when I study. (Someday I will find someone that appreciates how truly hilarious I am.)

Oh, did I mention I'm ridiculously attractive as well? Don't comment on that.
