My Christmas was great! We were supposed to be having a smaller Christmas this year so we have more money when we go to Disney World in February (I still can't believe I get to see Disney World soon!) My mom went overboard as usual, though! I can't complain... I got the things I wanted. It's just hard to believe we can afford an extravagant Christmas, then Disney in February, and then my parents want to buy a house in the spring. I'm not going to even try to talk to my parents about their finances. They've worked their way up from the bankruptcy, so I am putting faith in them knowing what they're doing.

I hope other people had as good a holiday as I had! I have tons of kitchen supplies, towels, movies, and a sewing machine. I'm set for moving off on my own after (or during) college. The lunch at my aunt's house was delicious as usual. She does it every year, and every year we all stuff ourselves until we feel sick. Then, once we feel a bit better, we eat some more. xP

This is probably my favorite thing I got. My Aunt Jen made it for me. She knows I like tye-dye, and she knows I like pirates. How could it get any cooler than tye-dye pirate skulls?! Answer: it can't. I didn't feel the need to move the cat off my bed to take the picture, so I'll introduce her. She is one of our two cats. This one is Anastasia. She lays in that same spot on my bed almost every night.

Happy Holidays!

I just read and commented on two days worth of posts, talk about time consuming, lol! I feel like I've probably said it a hundred times already to all of you in comments, but have a great holiday!

I have to thank Robyn for passing this awesome award on to me.

They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."

I will pass it on later. Thanks again, Robyn!

Last night I got my tattoo! It does not look like I imagined it would. The artist really made it unique and perfect. I love it. Two of my cousins went with me to get it, they held my hands and let me almost break their fingers. xP That's what family does, I guess.

Now comes the part where I need to make sure I put the A+D on it to keep it moist, and keep the fuzzies from my blankets and sweaters out of it. I woke up this morning to a fuzzy tattoo. xD It still hurts when I move a bit, but I expected that. I am so happy I finally got it.

Happy Holidays! Everyone enjoy themselves a bit lot! :)

Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Winter Solstice! It is still snowing- and it doesn't show signs of stopping.

I kept busy on this snowy day. I baked 6 different kinds of cookies today! I am exhausted. Chocolate Chip, Sugar Cookies, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Banana, Russian Tea Cakes, and Coconut Macaroons. They all came out great! Unfortunately it took me all day to make them.

Right now the smell of cinnamon is drifting thru the house. I am making ornaments out of pinecones my sister collected for me. All in all I think my day was well spent, even if I didn't write that paper for English class yet. Maybe I'll do that after I eat some dinner.
