Merry Christmas!

Especially all of you lackeys! Sorry I missed your call. It made me smile :) I meant to call you back, but then things started happening, and then I was eating way too much, and then I was super tired (must have been the turkey), and now here I am!
I have a word out of place in that picture, but I tried. Too tough. Perhaps my picture taking abilities will improve soon...
No snow, and blue skies, didn't have the full Christmas feel like that, but it was incredibly windy, almost blew off the trail with Mattie!

24 December 2008- Christmas Eve

Oops, only took about 4 pictures that night

man, I'm so tired out.

we make a lot of cookies. a lot. many many many. but they are delicious!! Even my dad made a few today! The wind is howling outside, I guess a storm is blowing in. Hopefully it will snow here!

Lefse Party- 21 December 2008

Really the lefse, krukager, and fatigman party. I think I spelled those last two words wrong, but oh well. It's cookies today!!
Perhaps Nelson is right, practice kindness and happiness and all that. And postive thinking I'd say.

Busy things

I should probably go out and have fun, but I'm too tired, so it's bed instead!

Colorado Time

Took me about 11 hours to get to CO today, but I made it. Started out with a flat tire, then had some delays, and waited in the de-icing line which felt like it took way too long. Eating more would have helped. But Mattie is here, looking a bit fat, and we had dinner with my dad, who got me some very nice flowers! They smell great! Time to wrap some gifts and watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Planted the little Christmas tree in our yard today! Hope it'll grow. The second picture is from yesterday, the clouds were awesome. We're going to Thousand Oaks today! After Nelson's final. Then I'm off to CO tomorrow!

the coolest ornaments that they made! They're so cute!! Thanks guys!

15 December 2008- Or my last day

I just woke up! Yup, missed half the day, but I guess I was tired. I was done by about 10:40 yesterday. Then Nelson and I both caught a leaf, though Nelson's sort of landed on his shoulder when he was trying to catch it. Then fondue, then we saw snow on the hills, then Heroes and Becky, Lucie, Amy gave us....

The coolest thing. Nelson and I were walking to the library and we heard this big noise behind us and this big red-tailed hawk came out of a tree carrying a mouse (maybe, it seemed pretty big though). then it landed on the grass, which is the bottom picture, then it flew to a tree and started eating the mouse. and it was pretty low in the tree so we could see it pretty well, though fortunately we couldn't see the mouse. Anyway, it was neat seeing the hawk so close up!

11 December 2008- Dead Day

Off to take a final...

has been missing out on the blog; so, here he is! Tomorrow is my last day of classes, but it doesn't really feel like it cause I have to lead two discussions on Monday cause we're so far behind in one class. And I have two other finals! Turned in two big assignments today though, feels pretty good. :)

Nelson and I got a little Christmas tree today! Our first one here. Plus we can plant this tree before we leave for break! 

6 December 2008

We went and saw Amy in Thoroughly Modern Millie last night. She was the best of course! So funny! It was a good show

Doing laundry, listening to music, and drinking wine waiting for the lackeys to return so we can go to the other lackeys' place and watch Heroes! A picture of me taking a picture! Oh boy!
