Wow, another year has come and gone! I can't believe that we are just a few hours short of 2012!!! I am pretty excited for this new year but at the same time terrified because after April I have absolutely no idea what I am going to be doing with my life.  But in this year to come I can look forward to running a marathon and graduating! Both big things I would say!

But its time to do another little review of my past year...


Threw a huge Luau party to give everyone a break from the cold weather!

Oh Christmas Tree

After finals, Shane, Sam, Michelle C. and another girl in my ward drove down to Arizona! It was a little tight but we enjoyed listening to Christmas music, Russian music and reading the forgotten carols!  Shane had to leave the next day for a job interview, so it was just us girls left.  Michelle decided to stay a couple days at my house so we decided we wanted to go for a hike.  Tuesday morning, Sam, Michelle and I started our journey to Camelback.

Here are some pictures from that delightful hike! The best part of the hike was there was a Christmas Tree at the top of the mountain! With homemade ornaments on top! Who does that?  

Starting the hike

Right before going up the really steep hill.  
In a hole

We made it to the top!

Sam and I at the top of the mountain

With the Christmas Tree.  See, I wasn't lying!!!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

My roommates and I did our own Christmas Morning a couple Sunday's ago.  We all went to "sleep" after church and then woke up to presents under the tree! We were all in our pajamas and ready to open presents! We had a five dollar limit on our presents, so it was fun to see what we could do with our little budget! After we opened presents we enjoyed a Christmas breakfast, which was delicious cinnamon rolls!

Roommates by the Christmas Tree

Jane and I with what she got me!

Stacey and I with what she got me!

Michelle and I with our matching onsies and what she got me!

All of us with our new joys and wonders!

Its not Christmas morning unless there are cinnamon rolls

I love my roommates so much!!!

It was a great Christmas morning! Now, only a few more days left till the real one!!!
