Christmas and Such...

Each year as Christmas comes around, I find myself being more and more annoyed by the sound of Christmas songs, and the crowds at all the stores.

This year, I tried to have a more positive outlook on the entire season. This was the first Christmas that I would spend without my Grandpa, and he truly enjoyed this season to it's fullest. I therefore decided to make this Christmas season an enjoyable one.

I donated lots of change to the Salvation Army, I listened to and sang lots of Christmas Carols, and I really focused on the fact that it was the celebration of Jesus' birth. The Christmas ended being something absolutely amazing. Santa came and left us a letter as usual, and the family had tears of joy, tears of sadness, and tears of laughter.

After my Christmas experience being so amazing, I now sit here with my beautiful baby niece, Alice, and my siblings discussing names for the new baby.

What more could I ask for?

I know I know... Just call me Becky or something.

SO of course it had officially been forever since the last time I updated, but I truly have a legitimate excuse. It's on one word 6 letters.... FINALS!

While I thought this semester was going to be a breeze, it certainly was not. I had more course work and spent more time studying than ever before. Which may be the outcome of... 3 B's and 1 A. And yes, I am definitely proud of that. It's just crazy how much I've grown since first semester of my Freshman year!

Ok so this one won't be long, because I'm going to my friends.... But I love you all and I can't wait to see all my family over the holiday!!!
