Merry Christmas.

Happy Birthday to the one who gave it all.
Thank you Lord for sending your son to this sinful world so that I may live eternally with you.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with loved ones.

I can't believe that Christmas time is nearly over. Just when it was really starting to feel like it. I don't know why but this year didn't have that Christmas feel like past years :(

Well there is still the New Year to celebrate. But right now I am just going to focus on enjoying the last few days of 2010.

Merry Christmas!

turning this

to this

it's nice to craft again...
what shall I make next?



i absolutely love the rain when Im cuddled up in my warm bed. The soothing sound of the it is my favorite thing to fall asleep to. I wish it rained every night before I went to bed.

But...I can't wait til the it stops and the sky clears up and I can finally see the mountains covered with snow.

a day at Disneyland

On Wednesday Sara, Alyse and I headed to the "happiest place on earth" I love seeing disneyland decked out in pretty christmas decor. We went on lots of rides and enjoyed the amazing parade.

We even met up with some friends, which was really fun.

Well I'm getting really excited for Christmas. How about you?
Happy Monday!!

Ten Days

It's terribly sad but it doesn't feel like Christmas. I just don't know why. O how I wish it did. As a child I remember how Christmas had such a strong effect on me. It made me feel a certain way. Just joyful and all together happy. I know this sounds so silly but it really did and now its different. Of course I still rejoice in the fact that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas day. That indeed gets me excited but the overall feel of Christmas is not there this year.

It may have to do with the weather. It feels especially warm this season. I don't know if it feels that way because I got back from England not to long ago or just because it really has been warm. I think when I have children of my own the excitement they have for Christmas will bring back those feelings I had as a kid. That seems to happen when I am hanging out with little ones. The joy they have for the Christmas season seems to rub off on me.

Well since Christmas is nearly here I better start doing Christmasy things. David finally put the lights on our house today. They look really great. Next thing we need to do is watch "It's a Wonderful Life". One of my favorite films.

Well goodnight.

Did I really go to England?
it already feels like a dream.
I knew it would.
I just didn't think it would start to feel like that so soon.
Goodness, I already wanna go back...

Lord thank you so much for that AMAZING expeirence.
I really did leave my heart in London.

how are you here already?
I just don't understand.
Is it seriously the last month of 2010?
oh life would you PLEASE slow down because I seriously can't keep up with you.
You are making the whole "living in the moment" thing super hard.
Currently I have lots of things in my mind.
Things like
trying to get in and get classes at a new school
trying to figure out where I should work and who is hiring
just other random life stuff.

I just need to continue to ask God for guidance in these changes I will soon face. What I really need to do is actually focus on listening to his answer. That's seems to always be the trickiest part for me. Asking and not waiting for an answer doesn't really do anyone much good.

Well night world!
Happy December.
