Some Random pics

This is a portrait that Adam drew on my arm one evening at kickball. It's a portrait of our friend Tom (a surprisingly accurate depiction). Priceless.

One of my temporary tattoo drawings. I miss having the time to do this.

Hot Tony. Are all Irish men this good looking?

Lily, when she was still a pup and not yet able to lay me down flat on the ground with a single bound. Her cute little tail is like a whip now! Where does the time go?

Home………………on a clear day, you can see forever.


I am procrastinating tonight. Why??? I have no idea. I seem to have really bad ADD right now. I need to pack and prepare for flying home. Tomorrow night is the last party for 2009 and the last time I will see most of my Kansas City friends until the next year. Weird. And so crazy to think about. I hope it doesn't snow again until after I leave. I wonder who my Secret Santa is?

CHRISTMAS!!!!!! & CALI!!!!!!!!

Well, well, well, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I have just finished all of my Christmas shopping and I feel so relieved! I am really, really looking forward to packing all of these wonderful gifts, every year it's kind of a test. A test to see how clever I can be with getting everything that I need into the least amount of luggage. It has been so dry and windy here, I am looking forward the fog and the smog! I can't wait to be home for such a long time, to be able to spend some real quality time with my family, and to celebrate the season with all of my California loved ones. I am excited to see my bro, who I call Skittles, who will be making the trip down from San Fran. I look forward to wearing sandals and eating In'N'Out and seeing all of my niece's, including the littlest, Ruby. I can't wait to give everyone hugs and kisses and to be able to say to them, "i'll see you tomorrow", "or in a few days". This time of year is what I look forward to the most. I am so very blessed to be able to go home and for such a long time. Currently I am as Happy as a little clam, the anticipation is so enjoyable. I wish everyone who is traveling a safe and stress free voyage and for everyone to have a wonderfully happy and blessed time with their loved ones!

Disneyland Pics

My Mom & Kylie -- so precious!

This ornament was the size of my face!

The Grois family (Brianna, Marty, Kylie, & Kelli)

This was breakfast at Disneyland, what does it look like to you?

Big Sissy/Little Sissy

Somewhere a turkey is missing a leg…

"I'm just not that into it."


Let's just throw ourselves from one holiday to the next shall we…

I kinda feel like that. After Halloween it's like, Let the Games Begin! Crazy. Whew, well I just want to say that my time at home was really nice, and warm, but nice, and did I mention warm? Yeah, I'm staring it off like that. I love being around my family. I Love being around my friends. I miss all of my niece's (Brianna, Marti-Rae, Kylie, & Ruby Louise Lemon Green). Here are the highlights: Disneyland -- awesome, little rainy, bought a jacket, ate the best pinnapple frozen yogurt ever. Thanksgiving Day -- Grandma makes the most delicious food, white elephant BINGO, I won a tiny mirror from China. Next day -- Roger's Gardens, Ruby's Diner, Ruby was delightful as long as she was fed, Gingerbread houses with the niece's, UCLA football with Dad, SuperMex (Mmmmm). Next Day -- Pasadena, Onion Rings, Best Cherry Coke of the year, Dinner with the G-'rents & the 'Rents & Jen, Jen falls asleep in my car and gives me bad directions. Next Day -- Church with my 'Rents, Lunch at a salad buffet, paper shopping with my cousin, reminiscing with my cousin, Dinner with a friend, mystical walk in the fog. Last Day Home -- chatted with my Mom until we had to leave for the airport, In'N'Out, almost missed my flight, thank goodness it was delayed because of intense fog. Those were the highlights. I hope that after the holidays some of my Cali peeps will come to visit, but for now I am counting down the days until I am back there again. 10 more days…dear Lord it's coming too fast.
