When life is good, I post less and less, even if I do take lots of pictures. That’s where I found myself this past week. I spent the week with my brother and his family about an hour and a half away. I took so many pictures but we were so busy that I didn’t have much time to post any! Because of that, I am going to share some here today!!! I already miss them so much.

This is the best that I’ve felt in a long time and being an aunt is so rewarding.
As the school year ends and I get ready to graduate in 3 days, I just wanted to reflect back on my time at EAU and how much it has changed my life.
I cannot imagine not going to EAU after all these years, it was the best decision I have ever made and I was the young age of 13 at the time. The faculty and students are amazing and make everyone feel welcome and a part of the EAU “family”. It was not like any other high school that I’ve seen. Our classes develop such a tight bond by the end of senior year because we don’t gain any new students throughout the years.
I have grown so much in my time at EAU and I am so appreciative of the teachers who helped that happen. Lots of encouragement and time spent to help better my skills. I will miss my teachers soooo much, but I feel so ready for college after going to EAU and earning my Associate’s degree already.
I will definitely miss all of the people, good memories, and comfort of my high school.
Here’s to the last 4 years of high school and to what awaits in the future!
This year the holidays were a little bit harder without my grandma here with us for our annual Christmas Eve get-together at their house, but through & through it was a very good holiday filled with laughs and good memories.
On the night before Christmas Eve we made Christmas cookies and listened to Disney songs and watched YouTube videos for an hour or more until 1am.
On Christmas Eve my mom & siblings & I all got together before we went to our grandparent’s house and watched old Christmas videos. First we saw some from my mom’s time (1994-96 I believe) then we watched some from my childhood (2002-06). I am so grateful for those videos. I got to see both of my late grandmothers again and hear their voices and see their love. I miss them both.
Then yesterday morning we opened gifts from my mom and watched A Christmas Story and shared laughs and ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We then went to my dad’s house and opened gifts from him & his girlfriend which was so sweet of them. We had tacos for dinner and birthday cake for Jesus (complete with candles and singing HBD to him). It’s been a pretty good holiday.
God bless all of you and I hope those of you who celebrate this holiday had a good one!

Today the high temperature was 9 degrees with windchills reaching as low as -16(?). It’s currently 6 degrees out & feels like -4. Brrrrr. Cold temperatures aside, the snow really makes for good photos!!

Unfortunately with the snow and bitter cold temperatures, the roads in housing additions that weren’t able to get plowed have turned into thick sheets of ice.
Last Sunday we got our first real snow of the season. It had snowed a month or so prior, but it never stuck or accumulated. This snow did, well, at least for a day. I was able to finally get some good photographs of it.
Last night my grandpa took me and my mom to the Embassy Theatre to see the Festival of Trees before it ends! The Christmas trees were so beautiful! It was crowded in the beginning but it cleared out near the end so I was able to get some really good pictures of some of the trees.
