So this is Christmas....

Let's be honest. Christmas is not my favorite time of the year. I know, I know. How un-American of me. But I hate the crowds & the do I hate the music. I mean of it's good. But the music that you hear that's the same song just sung by a different singer. Don't you think "Little Drummer Boy" should be sung by a boy? Well I do....I'd like to see Kanye come out with a Christmas CD. That'd be dope.
Enough about music..for now. I do love to give during this season. If fact I have a bit of a problem with it. I always want to give too much. But alas...I'm not as rich as I hoped to be. One day perhaps. 
So this Christmas I got to go HOME! So Cal is so nice & warm during Christmas time! I do love that!

Oh San I love you.
So we got down there early Christmas Eve morning. Slept for a bit woke up & drove some more. Up to Pasadena for a Daniel family Christmas.
We got there late...thanks to good ol' LA traffic. The food was good. Beer pong was fun...we played & they drank. So its MORE fun when you are bad at ping pong & all your cousins are getting more & more drunk as the game goes by. I love my cousins...they are the best! Then just some good games & good conversation.

Then back home. It's Christmas Eve!! I was feeling sick so I drugged myself. Plus I can never sleep Christmas eve so it was good for me. I still woke up @ like 7. Now onto the cornucopia of presents.

Jack got ahold of this present & chewed the CD..I gave it to my dad anyway...I think he liked it. I gave him an itunes card too. Just incase the CD didn't work.

3 teams my family LOVES...ANGELS, COLTS, & UCLA! I think we have enough Angels paraphernalia to dress the whole baseball team itself.

Jack got a candy cane bone!
We went to see my cutest cousins! They love me.

Her violin is the cutest & tiniest thing! She played 'Jolly ol Saint Nicholas' for me! & when she messed up she just looked @ me & smiled! Love it!
So until next Christmas.

My faves....NOVEMBER 2008

So I got this idea...Nay, I stole this idea from another site. But I liked it & my gosh I'm gonna use it. So there. Here is a list of my favorite things. I'm going to start back in November. Since I just did a post on Thanksgiving.

Coldplay-Viva La Vida- I saw them this month & wow was it great. Those boys know how to put on a show. It was a music video, concert, & dance party all in one. Way worth the money! Plus they make you feel like they are really there for you. Even after all these years...they still care. Plus I LOVE England. 

The iPhone- So I'm still vintage with this phone. No 3G needed here. Just give me my 16g & I'm good. I do love it. iPod, phone, camera all in one. Plus I can check my email & google whatever, whenever! What more could you ask for? Not to mention you get to go chill with genius' whenever you want. 

Jack- I love my dog. He lets me mess with him all the time. The other day I put a bow around his head like he was a girl. Poor dog. But he deals with it. I guess he knows if he didn't I wouldn't give him treats. 

Time off- One of the best things about working in a dental office is the fact that I get good vacation. Like for Thanksgiving I get a good 4 & 1/2 days off. I only work 4 day weeks.  Plus I get paid Thanksgiving. What more could you ask for then to get paid while you stuff your face then sleep it off? 

Fall- The colors of Fall are beautiful. Growing up in California you don't see the leaves change. But now that I'm close to the mountains I get to see all the colors of Autumn. I love it...but then I remember that Winter is coming & I get a bit nervous.

A bit of Thanksgiving...

Remember Thanksgiving...try hard. It was like 2 months ago. Well I'd like to share my experience.
So this year was Thanksgiving with the LIECHTY'S. And there are like a billion of them. So every Thanksgiving they rent out a huge house or cabin to fit us all. This year it was @ the Northgate Mansion in Provo.
This place is HUGE! It sleeps 50 {almost enough to fit us all} I don't even think I found all the bathrooms, but there are like 10 of them. Oh & it had 2 playhouses....

This one was the cute little cottage...

And the other was....


I finally got to go. Me=Hermione & Jeff=Harry, just to clear that up.

Jeff defeated the was BRILLIANT! Then if you go on down the hall you meet up King Tut & Cleopatra in the giant theater room.

Adam doing what he does best...

it's why we love him.

Cute little Donna & me.

One of the few times we saw Mike...he's a bit of a workaholic.

He did make an appearance to beat Taylor in pool.
Jeff & I went on an adventure to try to see the whole house, & yes...we did enter.

My very first Gingerbread House...EVER!

Someday...I'll post pictures of Christmas.
