2013.

2013 has been good to me. I wouldn't say it has been the easiest year of my life but I definitely learned a lot about myself and grew closer to becoming the person I want to be.  I learned that I am a lot braver than I thought. I learned that I am capable of being more independent that I could have ever imagined but I also learned that having people to help you isn't a sign of weakness. I have a long ways to go but this year was one full of growth for me. I hope when you look back on your year you can say the same.

Christmas

It is fine that this is almost a week late. No one is mad. 

On Christmas Eve we go to my grandma's house. It consists of a lot of watching sportsscenter, eating, playing BINGO, opening presents, and more eating. 







And let me just tell you that my grandma makes the best cupcakes on the whole earth, and if you know me then you know I can never resist eating a million cupcakes.


Now I am just going to dump a bunch of Christmas photos and call it a day












I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!!

Tree.

A Christmas miracle happened this year. We got our tree more than a few days before Christmas. I am serious. One year, we got our tree the day before Christmas Eve. So the fact that we had a tree more than two weeks before Christmas is really a miracle. Even if it looked like this.


Luckily we were able to straighten that out. But it still looked kind of sad.


But I think the lights and decorations really helped it out.



Honestly I am quite proud of our little Christmas tree. I hope everyone has the merriest of Christmases!!!

Houses

We have a family tradition where we all decorate gingerbread houses. Everyone says it isn't a competition but we all know it is.






As you can see, everyone was really into it.

I typically abandon my family and join my aunt Kasey and we dominate. Like two years ago we made a Twilight themed house and it was the best thing ever. But this year she brought her boyfriend and that means I had to stick with my own family...but don't worry, we had the best theme ever.


Please tell me you can figure out what our theme was....

Ok, you can't. Its obviously the royal family. I mean, what other theme could I possibly do??

And while my house was obviously the best one I think Kasey and Nick did an ok job with their "Reindeer Game of Thrones" house
