here is a recap of some of the things that i did in december... man, i'm really good at posting things in a timely matter. you must love that! oh well. sorry!! :)
*i put lights up in my room. which i have been meaning to do for forever. i was so happy when i set it all up! technically, they're seasonal lights and they were considered christmas items when i bought them at ikea. but they will be staying up all year long and they are still in my room. YES :)
*we went to souplantation many times in december. i blame siaira and her love for the souplantation salads. i refer to them as "mountains" instead of salads. because, let's be honest. the girl eats about ten pounds of lettuce & pasta at the beginning of her souplantation meals.
*we had a gift-wrapping event for the accounting club at my school that we all got to volunteer at. it was really fun and a few days later we got to hand out the presents to a couple of hundred families. i wish i could have told them all about jesus, but i wasn't in charge and it wasn't a faith-based event. but still, it was a wonderful few days!
*siaira's family made us cookies + cake bites and i wore my favorite new dress a lot.
*natalie, becca, siaira, and i had quite an adventure one evening. we drove around a few christmas-light-looking-neighborhoods and blasted luke bryan and other ridiculous songs while singing them at the top of our lungs. we also snuck into our old church's christmas party (at an old friend's house) without being noticed and used the restroom... we were successful at the sneaky part until natalie and becca ratted us out accidentally. but it was still really funny! (if anyone of the church people ever asks though, i'm denying that i ever was there. to my death)
*natalie, heather, cathee, jessica, and i had a lunch date at lazy dog cafe to plan out our upcoming trip to canada + washington! jessica made little signs that said "aye" on one side and "nay" on the other so we could vote on things. pinterest has done her well and has turned her into a crafty lady! good job jessica!

this is from a month ago, but whatever. at least i'm sharing some of the photos! my grandma's brother passed away last month and we attended his funeral out in riverside. it was really unexpected when he passed and my grandma was pretty upset about it. just makes me realize how quickly life passes and how fast it goes by. it was really sweet seeing my grandma and all her sisters there together. it was also nice seeing my mom's side of the family since that doesn't happen ever.
my grandpa, great-grandpa, and great-grandma are all buried at the funeral site. so we got to visit their graves while we were there. i had never been before, and it was really nice to be able to see what was written about them. and i absolutely love the photos i got of my family while there.
afterwards, we went to downtown riverside and walked around looking at the christmas lights. we were going to have dinner at a mexican restaurant there, but the wait was four hours. hah! so, we opted out of waiting. i did manage to grab some chips that we're sitting there waiting to be brought out to all of the tables... i know, that's bad but whatever i was hungry and natalie did it too. we also got the most amazing hot apple cider donuts. oh my gosh they were so good! i could eat them everyday!
