Friday Night Bowling

Today my grandparents decided to take all of my cousins bowling!  And good thing too, because I've really missed them!  

Of course with all of us there it got a little crazy...we were dancing and we made up victory cheers and stuff...

Connor was probably the best at it...he came up with our bowling dance!

We ended the night with Ashley having a score of 101.
 
And Cameron got a score of 105...and I won with a 119! Yep, I'm just as surprised as you are!

It was a really great night!  I love my family!  And I feel like I say that a lot....

Week in Review

I spent some time with my neighbors, cousin, and sister.  We didn't really do anything though.  

I ate lots of foreign candy.  Japanese, Chinese, and even some Colombian.

 Spent lots of time with my family, including my uncle, Matt, who makes me laugh everyday. 

Dusty was a bridesmaid.

My dad and I went through the photo booth.  My dad came up with all the poses.

Alyssa's Wedding

I really love weddings!! They are so fun!  Today my cute cousin got married and I've been so excited for her!

They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple this morning! 

Then later that night we had the reception, and it was tons of fun, even though I was exhausted because I had been working all day long!

Alyssa decided she wanted to have her wedding Beauty and the Beast themed, so her colors were red and yellow!


And of course like at every wedding, we decorated their car! They even filled their car with sixty balloons!


The best part was probably the photo booth!  I love those!  And I basically had to force Collin to go in it with me....he really didn't want to do that...he thought it would be too awkward, but it wasn't...


Then of course I went in the booth with some of my other cousins!  We're a pretty good looking family!

Mostly I spent the night talking to all my cousins and family!  I also ate a lot of really good doughnuts and hot chocolate!

Well, congratulations to the cute couple!

Week in Review

Court stole my camera to take selfies. 

Then Kaleb and I decided to take our own selfies.

Yep, she's pro at weird faces.

 My cute little cousin actually let me take a picture with him, usually he runs away from me.

We spent New Years day shopping.  But of course I'm saving my money, so I was proud of myself when I didn't buy anything.

Now the break is over, and I have to go back to school.  I'm really going to miss doing nothing all day.

New Years Resolutions

Last year I made five resolutions, this year I'll make five more.
But for now let's review.

Last year:

1.  Blog as much as possible
I was a slacker on this one, that's for sure.  I get so busy with homework, school and work, that I hardly ever have time to even get on the computer!  And for a little while there I didn't have a camera so I didn't take any pictures.  Earlier last year before I got a job I did a little better...but then I became REALLY busy.  
2.  Smile more
Pretty sure I did pretty well with this one.  This one had a lot to do with the fact that people thought I was miserable because I didn't always look very pleasant.  But now I smile all the time.  I used to think that I didn't even know how to smile, that's a funny story actually.  But ever since I got my braces off last year I've been smiling like crazy!

3.  Keep my good grades
This one I did a good job at too.  I was able to be on the honor roll all year.  Luckily it isn't that hard for me to get good grades because for the most part school can be easy.  It's that math that's killing me.  But don't worry, I've been pulling off the A's. 

4.  Learn how to do tabs
That didn't happen.  I suck at tabs.  I hardly even played my guitar this year, I've been so busy!  I guess when I've had breaks in school I've played it once of twice, but that was all just chords.  I actually just restrung my guitar, and now it sounds so much better, so hopefully I'll be able to learn them soon!

5.  Write in my journal on a daily basis
I really suck at keeping my resolutions.  Can't say that I wrote in my journal that much this year.  It's because I'm so busy!!  I seriously can't wait until summer when I'm not constantly doing homework.  


Now for this year's resolutions.

1.  Keep up on the blogging
Once again this is my resolution.  It's very difficult for me to keep blogging, hopefully I'll be able to blog at least once a week, if not more, then I will be a little more satisfied.  

2.  Pass my AP classes
This year I'm taking two AP classes.  AP Music Theory, and AP Calculus.  The theory class I'm having no problem with, I've learned that type of stuff my whole life.  It's the calculus that's been killing me.  Luckily I have friends that are helping me along the way.  

3.  Get accepted to college and get scholarships
I can't believe that I'm going to be a senior this year.  Later this year I'll have to start applying to colleges and applying for scholarships.  Not only do I want to get accepted into USU, I want to get accepted into the Music Therapy program.  

4.  Read a conference talk once a week
On Christmas my grandparents issued their grandkids a challenge.  They want us to read a conference talk once a week throughout the year and email them about the things we've learned.  They gave us a schedule of all the weeks and talks, so hopefully I'll be able to keep up on it.  

5.  Save my money
Now that I'll be going to college in a few years, I need to start saving up tons of money!  I'm also going to China and Disneyland...and that's a lot of money for a teenager to pay.  So with my job and the money I earn, hopefully I'll be able to save up a significant amount of it!

Well, that's all I have for you today!  Have a magnificent day!

Bowling

Since we're on break I have tons of free time.  It's awesome.  Today my family went bowling with some of my cousins, and it was so much fun.  I love bowling, it's just really fun.

Now that I've graduated from using the bumpers...I don't really get that great of a score.  Ashley actually won, with a 87.  Impressive, huh.  But don't worry, I came in third with a 76.  My dad on the other hand, he kicked my butt and got 172.  But he was on a different lane, so he doesn't count.

By the end of the game we got pretty creative, you'd be glad to know that I think Courtney got a strike or a spare with the is roll, I don't remember.

After bowling we went to Chick-fil-a where we ate lots of delicious food, especially the fries.

I love spending time with my family, and I'm so sad that the break is almost over because then I'll never get to see them!!
