I uploaded all my photos, and then realized there was so much to tell and talk about that it's kind of overwhelming so i saved it as a draft, and here I am now. attempting to explain how amazing my christmas of 2011 was. I'm still listening to christmas music. no biggy! I got everything I wanted this year. What really breaks my heart is that theres people who had to work, who don't have family, whos mother or father is serving in the military far away and doesn't know when they'll be home and haven't seen their kids in forever. really, the list could go on and on. it just breaks. my. heart. and kids in an orphanage! and kids with mean parents!!! and animals!!!!! :( Makes me mad, I'm concerned about what i'm getting for christmas when theres a child out there probably just asking for new shoes........ I hate sad things. Resolution of 2012: volunteer more, make a difference. I have so many resolutions this year.

sweetest picture snapped with my iphone so sorry it kind of sucks! but how sweeeeet is ethan!? He kept saying, "Mom I want to play the racing game!!" literally like 50 times in a row, so she calmed him down and he fell right asleep on her. I can't wait to have kids so that I can be their favorite person. and buy them cute clothes.

literally the best meal ever. even though we had prime rib last night, this dinner for christmas was uhhhhhmazing. my mom's a rockstar.

my mom is an ecofriendly babe! heres her greenhouse!! expect vegetables and stuff next year folks!! I secretly think its a WOman cave, or a tent. or the dog house for my dad? hahaha ;)
prez from my bro. super stoked about it.
I tried to make some weird breakfast stuff. andrew the best brother in law ever was my guinnea pig that ate my creations, he said they were delicious..... but I'm thinking maybe I won't mess with breakfast again.
I'm OBSESSED with these earrings. Thanks santa!!! :)
new glasses. lookin sooo gooood on christmas morning!!
this is apple juice that I made with my new juicer!!!!!! the foam at the top makes it look NAST, but its deliciouuuuuuuuuus. seriously.

this picture rocks!!!! fire place. christmas morning. all my goodies!!! :)

christmas naps are the best. Christmas was amazing this year. Too much to write about so I'll just leave it at that. I love my family and this year has been oh so gooood to me. Love you whoever you are. Remember, just be happy you're alive. somewhere out there in the world theres someone with cancer fighting for life. so don't waste yours. thats kind of a depressing note to end on. but its true. xoxo ceo.

so you're about to experience a photo overload and it's not even christmas yet! Seriously tomorrow is Christmas. I don't even know how that happened!!! anyway I don't know how time seriously flies! do you?? Aubree, my sister, and her husband and her two kids came tuesday! Since then we've seen santa, had a party at our house, hot tubbed everyday, sang christmas songs, made sugar cookies (including dinosaur shapes and shark shapes and the classic christmas tree, I even threw in a jew star cookie) we've shopped our little hearts out, and have eaten way to much. i still havent had breakfast. I think I'll have apple pie. No joke, apple pie warmed up is heaven, and even ice cream on top... ahh yum. I really love having family here. even if that means I don't have a bed. I've been bed hopping from the game room to codys room to even my best friend jessica's house.. haha but it doesnt matter, i'm young and i can sleep anywhere. I barely sleep these days anyhow. we have 8 adults in the house and 2 kids, and one in my sister's tummy (so 2 and a half kids) ;) 8 people in a 5 bedroom house!! how is this possible you ask? Christmas magic. :)
How cute is baylee?? She's growing so fast.
This was my night last night. Me. Fire. How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Christmas tree lit up. presents everywhere. I sometimes just sit and take it all in because it's toooo perfect. I love the house filled with people, presents, yummy smelling food, babies screaming or laughing. I just love it. and I want it to last forever.
santa's sleigh!! :) rudolph is in the back. I forgot to take a picture I know how dumb of me.. but when we had a party tuesday, my dad put the ranger on the grass, and put rudolph in the front with some lights on him so it literally looked like santa's modern sleigh, and rudolph. Everyone loved it. My mom thought it was the most ghetto thing ever, but me and my dad cracked up and died laughing. Everyone who mentioned it at the party would say it's awesome, and then the first thing dad said was, "it's for my grandkids, they're coming tonight." he loves them sooo much.
shark sugar cookie. who doesn't love shark sugar cookies. come on now!
Some friends at a Asher Roth concert. Concert sucked, but our friend promoted it so good job kyle!! and asher came on at 1:45am when it started at 10:30 and we had to listen to all of these crappy rappers rap and sing and make our ears bleed (jk they weren't that bad) but really, asher had no right to make us wait! he's not THAT good!!! So when he was in the middle of his first song, we left. literally. and someone told me he fell off the stage later which almost makes me want to have stayed hahah.
dove messages. I love that dove has a naughty side. for reals. haha
this is my twinner in our friend's suite at the Hard Rock. It was a beautiful suite and it was Britney's 21st birthday!
this is my studly nephew. ethan. whaaat a babe. how can you make holding onto a duck sooo cool right?
this is my bff jessica. we were walking to the asher roth concert after parking on the 7th level of planet hollywood's parking. this was in a stair well and i was like ah lets take a picture. yeah it's just gay condo's in the bkrnd but its okay. I like it.
I just love him SOOO MUCH. ahhh

but really, I think I can drop out of college and be my brother's agent, he's a model for suuure.
I attempted to make santa hats out of brownie bites, strawberries and some frosting. they obvi weren't done very well, but they had a cute idea, and maybe I'll have a steady hand next year. they were delicious though!! (thats all that matters)
i made these. anyone who knows me knows I LOVE cupcakes. seriously. The saddest thing is I only had one at our party, and then the next day my mom told me ants attacked them and they all had to be thrown away. saddest thing ever!!

me & the birthday girl!!!
these cupcakes are at the sugar factory in the paris hotel. they are amazing. well okay I didnt eat them b/c they're about 4 dollars per cupcake and I was afraid the green frosting would color my whole face green. but they're SO cute right? i KNOW.
my fam went to bass pro shops. I was being a grinch, thinking oh this will be dumb. I'd rather be at the mall, etc. but listen, bass pro shops is a blast. we dressed up in the funny things and had funnel cake provided by the boy scouts of america, and it was just a good time!!! we left there with toy guns, camo outfits and a smile on our faces because we laughed so hard at everything Cody and I tried on.
you can't even see me. I know.
this hat was actualy REALLY warm and soft, but what makes me mad is thats real rabbit fur or whosever fur!!! I was SO sad. I guess they dont kill the rabits right? or shoot I can't remember what kind of fur it was but makes me mad.
real attractive picture. I know. I don't even care how embarrassing this is. it's just hilarious.
this hat honestly was my favorite. I'd wear it but everyone would make fun of me. but I secretly don't care.
think this was a mailbox. If i lived in beaver, ut. this would be my mailbox.
my mom was a trooper she took pics with me. but mostly just embarassing pictures of me. which is totally fine with meee.
my cute friends at the sugar factory in the paris hotel for britney's 21st birthday!! all my friends are turning 21! brit on sunday, deja on wednesday, lanna on the 30th, jessica on jan 30th! I don't turn 21 till june 4th!! Once I turn 21 tho, I just want to not get any older. that'd be great.
I reallly love colleen. We look alike, act alike, have the same taste in clothes. She's awesome.
what a cuteeeeeeeee boy!
My friends and I at the asher roth concert! The concert sucked, but at least all of us were together!!!

So sorry for the picture overload, but the pictures are better than me blogging. tomorrow is christmas, so theres probably going to be a butt load of photos tomorrow!!!! So photo overload on mon or tuesday. LOVE YOU whoever you are. and Merry Christmas.
