There's no time to waste...There's so much to celebrate!

Christmas is in 2 days, people!! 2! It seems like it has come way too fast this year. But we will have a white Christmas, which is cool. And yesterday I realized that all over the world missionaries will be calling home. How cool is that? Mass home-calling! I'm really loving the snow! I've keep going sledding with friends. But walking through the foot of snow isn't so much fun.
Yesterday at Austin's house I found the piano music to the song Believe from The Polar Express. I love that song! It's so good! Josh Groban sings it, which makes it amazing right there. The title for this post is a quote from the song. So in case I don't get to blog again before Christmas, I want to remind you all that Christmas is a time for giving, sharing, and caring. Remember The Polar Express. If you haven't read the book, you need to. And watch the cartoon Grinch. It's so much better! Don't get wrapped up in your presents and "me, me, me". Remember to tell your family you love them and to give your friends a hug.
Merry Christmas!

roller coasters should be rides not weeks

My week has been crazy! We had snow all week! Snow and ice! No school all week!! And Christmas is coming which makes things more exciting. I've had people be mean to me, and then nice. I've laughed, and I've cried. But today is good. Why? Because Allie will be home in 15ish minutes!! I will see my favorite big sis! WOOHOO!!!

Days till allie gets home: ZERO!!!!
Days till Christmas: 6

SNOW!!!!! Lots of it!!

It definitely snowed all day on Sunday. Yesterday we had no school. And no school again today. We're supposed to get more snow tomorrow. And the temp isn't suppose to get above freezing this week, so the snow/ice will not melt! We might not have school all week! That would mean a three week Christmas break! And you might be thinking, "Well, yeah that's fun now, but it's not when you have to make it up in June..." But, I am a Senior. Graduation is on June 3rd, NO MATTER WHAT! So I won't have to make it up!! Woohoo!!! C'mon snow!!

3 days till Allie gets home!! (Hopefully, with all the snow/ice, her plane will get in no problem. I'm slightly concerned. But I haven't heard bad news from the Portland airport, so it should be ok.)
9 days till Christmas! (Maybe it will be white!!)

GAH!!! It snowed! And stuck! It's been snowing all day! We have almost 3 inches! Crazy! All you Utah people are probably thinking, "Oh who cares?" But this is a BIG DEAL to us Oregonians. And yes, we are big enough pansies that some wards cancelled church (not mine), and the Stake Chrsitmas Program is postponed to next week. But snow is AWESOME! School will probably be canelled tomorrow. It's not going to melt, becaused it won't get colder over night, so probably no school! Woohoo!!

5 days till Allie gets home!
11 days till Christmas!

Senior Seminar is a ridiculous class. Its utterly preposterous!!! I have to do so many dumb things. And no one cares!!! Who's going to see my portfolio?! Future employers? Future Professors? NO! No one will ever look at it!! EVER! What a waste of time! Time I will never get back! GAH!!!!!!!!!

8 days till Allie gets home!!
14 days till Christmas!

my thoughts on Monday

I did math homework with Eric. That's pretty fun actually. And I get it when he explains it. He's an amazing friend!
I went to trumpet lessons. We played Christmas songs. It was fun! Mr. Comely said I had good tone. Woohoo!
I've been listening to Taylor Swift all day. Love her!
Emily didn't answer her phone. :(
"Boys are dumb. Throw rocks at them."
I got my hair cut. Well, it was supposed to be a trim, but she cut it shorter than I expected. I love it, though, so no biggie.
Our band concert is on Wednesday. It should go pretty well.
11 days till allie gets home!!!!!!!!!
17 days till Christmas!

I was really hoping for snow last night. It has been clear the last few days and really cold. Then some clouds moved in yestewrday evening. I was hoping it would snow and stick because the ground was cold enough. But, nooooo. It just rained. And now its overcast, so all the heat is trapped so we won't get snow for a while at least, if at all. Dumb weather!

12 days till Allie gets home!
18 days till Christmas!

New lyrics

"I am a Princess, this could be a fairy tale..."
The last verse's chorus is better. More accurate. But the white horse boy can still catch me.
Cuz small towns have happy endings too.

Thanksgiving at my grandparent's house is hectic. We had over 20 people. Lots of loud kids, one crabby great-grandma, a bunch of stressed adults, and 3 annoyed teenagers (who didn't get to sit at the "adult table". Babysitting again!).
I saw Madagascar 2. It was good. Very funny! "Now where were we?" "I'm huge."
We went to Leavenworth. Its a very cool little town in Washington that is designed like a German town. It was fun! Melia bought a very cute hat.
I talked to Allie!! Only 18 days till she comes home!
We put up Christmas decorations today. 24 days!
