the Wraping Up of Christmas

{my older sister Rachel and I, era 2002}

Ahh. We made it though New Year's people. I'm don't have anything against the holidays, and frankly, it's always a little sad when December is over. But this year, it was kind of like a marathon. Exhausting. Totally exhausting. 
  
   Party after party. The Nutcracker that I wasn't able to dance in. Exams. Getting my wisdom teeth out so my face could look great for Christmas photos. Seriously people. I look like a over weight chipmunk in 97% of the pictures. And then, the never ending list of gifts to buy. Okay, question: what do you do when a loose friend gets you some nice gift? And you are like, totally unprepared, much less have a gift for them. Awkward. 

    But because my birthday is also in December, it is kind of the gift jackpot for me.
I got this sweater-

  My mom was on a fuzzy kick this year, which is great because fuzzy usually equals warm. And it has been feeling like the Arctic tundra lately. 




And you thought I was lying about the cheeks. 

So yeah. Now it's on the science fair panic and 25 page reports. The microscope has become part of  my room decor. And rubber gloves. Classy, I know.


    There you go friends- my after Christmas ramblings:-)
What about you? How was your December?

I can do it! (I hope...)


Oh my. Blaahhhhh!! Let me explain to you why my blogging has disappeared- biology exams, puking, Christmas shopping, dance. Plus, yours truly is getting her wisdom teeth out on Friday. Yup. All four of them. So I need to get all my Christmas projects done before then. Plus I really need to get my butt in gear for my science fair project.

   Any words of advice as far as wisdom teeth go?

But do not fear friends- I have lots of ideas planned for the blog, and I am so excited to get writing!

Q: What have you been up too in these past few weeks?
