Dinner with a bunch of my friends
The next day (monday) I was back to the cold! But I guess it wasn't as bad as Rexburg. Anyways, so the day that we flew into Utah, we went to temple square with my extended family. I forgot how beautiful it is with all the Christmas lights up.
Dolly and I. And some awkward person photo bombing us
Dolly and I again, with no one behind us
She was snap chatting and I really didn't know what she was doing until after... excuse my awkward face...
I love the reflection and nativity
After that Christmas was really great. I got to see a lot of family, eat lots and lots of food, and even go sledding with my cousins (who were all hitting on these girls also sledding on the hill). And for those of you who are wondering, no I did not Skype Elder Kupferer (aka Matt) on christmas, due to the fact that I was in Utah, but even if I wasn't and I was invited to, I wouldn't take the opportunity. I really don't think it would have been good for either of us in the long run. But its alright :) I still get to write and email him :)
While talking about Rexburg, we got on the subject of this lamp, which my grandparents used to keep out on a shelf in their basement where all the kids play. It used to mesmerize me as a kid but I hadn't seen it since they moved to their new house.
Justin, Braden, and I. We are cool kids.
Nick loves sledding....
And is also a crazy maniac....
Who I like to take pictures with :P
After returning to California and its BEAUTIFUL WARM WEATHER, I had the opportunity to go to one of my good friends from college farewell down in San Diego. He left today for the Provo MTC, and after 6 weeks will go to the Tuxtla Gutierrez Mexico mission. Although I didn't get to be in my home ward, it was great to be with friends to see him talk.
We like to laugh :D
Chipmunk faces to match Jennifer's
New Years was also fun! I got to see a lot of old friends and have fun with them!
New Years Eve
For the last 3 days that I was home I got to go to Disneyland before my pass expired. I had a great time and was able to go with many different friends. It was a great end to a break.
On Silly Symphony Swings
Philippa and I on California Screamin'
A castle view from the carousel.
Exhibit A of why I LOVE Tangled.
Rapunzel and Eugene are so cute!
Ahhhh! I can't take it!
Some people are really afraid of Tower of Terror.... and I like to laugh at them for it.
One of the more interesting ride pictures I have taken on a Disneyland ride.
We like sunglasses, they make us look cool :P
On the carousel
Last day! You can also see my recent obsession/ hobby of pin trading
These cute little girls were dressed up as Anna and Elsa from Frozen and were walking around holding hands. One of the most adorable things I have ever seen!
Final picture in front of the tree!
All in all, break was great, and of course WAY too short. But oh well. It's kind of weird being back with new classes and friends. Although quite a few of my friends from last semester are still here, a lot of them are leaving for missions or doing other great things. I'm so excited to finish this semester and leave on my mission! Keep checking back to see where I am called! Until then!
