Early Christmas

Sorry I'm posting so much, lol. Anyhoo...
Yesterday evening my dad's side of the family came over for an early Christmas. I have 6 cousins on my dad's side and I believe 5 of them were there. Here are the families:

My grandma Marion was there, she has Alzheimer's, so she doesn't really know who any of us are.
And her husband (my dad's dad) passed away when my dad was 17.
My dad has 3 brothers: David, Paul and Alan. My dad is the second oldest.
David's family: His wife's name is Jackie, and they had 2 kids Josh and Brenda. There both in there 20's I think... Josh was the only family member missing from this event =(. But everyone one else was there, including Brenda and her new wife Megan. Yes Brenda is a girl, and yes I said HER WIFE. We try not to judge.*ahem* Moving on....
Paul's family: His wife's name is Robin, and they also have 2 kids; Mathew and Sydney. Matt is like 16 and Sydney is 12.
Alan's family: His wife's name is Julie, and, yes you guessed it, they have 2 kids! Abby and Alex. Abby is 10 and Alex is 6.
So basically, my dad broke the pattern by having 4 girls, instead of a boy and a girl, lol.
So there are 20 members of my dad's family (including us. Us being my sisters and my mom, lol), and 19 were there.

Story time: My dog Tumai (the black labrador) has a bark collar, because we got a complaint for all of his loud barking. So my sister Jessica (the more adventurous one) wanted to see how much it hurt. So, she stuck it to her neck and barked like a dog, (she's not the sharpest tool in the shed, lol just kidding). And, well, it shocked her, and she screamed and threw it across the room. Lol, everybody was laughing hysterically. So then my uncle Alan (the youngest of my dad's siblings) wanted to try. And... the rest is in the video, lol

Just another opinion blog

I think I'm going to delete this blog, because it takes too much work to put a review on all of the movies I've seen, just this week I saw like 5 movies I've never seen before. I'm too lazy to keep posting about movies I've seen and if they're good or bad, so I think I'm going to remove it, OR open it so other people can put their reviews. Except I don't know how to make it so more people can write on one blog......

I thought a quote about choices would fit this post, lol.

Sinus infection

Well my mom took me to the doctors and it turn out I have a sinus infection! Woohoo. So now I'm all hyped up on medication! I'm squirting Nasonex up my nose, drinking Robitussin (but trying not as often as I can, that stuff is awful) and swallowing some sort of blue and purple pill that I have no idea what it is, but it's doctor prescribed so it must work! lol. I don't feel any better yet, but hopefully it will start working soon. Mean while I've been learning how to play this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mULa8WxTa4 on the piano, I can sing it to, but just not while I'm sick, it's a little hard to sing when your voice sounds like a frog choking. lol. So has anyone else done any of there Christmas shopping? 'Cause I haven't! Lol. I haven't even started looking for my family's presents yet. Well I guess that's it. Oh wait! I'm doing post quotes again! Ok let me get my book.........

Here are some quotes on difficult days:

This, too, shall pass. -William Shakespeare

Some days you want to tame the tiger. And
some days the tiger has you for lunch. -Tug McGraw

Pain is never permanent. -Saint Teresa of Avila

He that can't endure the bad will not
live to see the good. - Yiddish proverb

I put 4 to make up for all of the posts I missed =)

Ew.

Sorry I haven't been on lately, it's because I'm sick =(. Yuck. I've been coughing up a storm and I can't stop sneezing. I hate being sick, you don't get to do anything but feel horrible. When I'm better I'll start posting again. OH YEA! You all voted, (well not ALL just MOST) for me to keep up my Post Quotes, I'm too lazy to do that now, so when I'm better.... well be expecting them!

Here it is again!

Just one of the millions of giant
Christmas trees all over Disneyland,
California Adventure, Downtown Disney,
Our hotel, and another hotel. And
you thought I was exaggerating. =)

This is the view from our window. We were
on the 14th floor and our hotel had 15 floors.
We stayed at the Paradise Pier by the way.

I was seriously considering stealing that
mirror and putting it in my room....

This is just one of the 3 rooms we had. =)


There are surprisingly more pictures taken on my other family members cameras, but I'll load those later. I also took a video on the Tea-Cups, and Aubrey took a video on the Matter Horn, we were gonna take a video of us on Thunder Mountain but it was closed the last day =( But we still got to go on it before it closed, but you can't really video-tape at night.

BYE! again.

Well, BYE EVERYBODY! AGAIN! Were headed to Disneyland at like 4:00 am! Blech. I don't get why every time we go somewhere we leave in the wee hours of the morning...
Anyway I'll take lots of pictures and videos! I get car sick so the 6 hour car ride should be fun. Lol.
Well, I'll talk to you all when I get back!

HOME!! AND PICTURES!!

HI EVERYONE!!!! Thank you for all the wonderful comments! I had an awesome time in Baltimore! The plaine rides were blech, but there isn't much I can do about getting plaine sick. I met a gazilion of Lindsay's friends. They were all really nice. I'll have to make another post of all the people I met! Sorry I didn't take any pictures of them. Ok so here are a whole bundle of pics from Baltimore, Maryland!!!!!

This is our hotel bed-room
This is the living room of our hotel room

And this is our messy bath room, I'm standing
in the bath/shower taking this picture, lol.


And these were the millions of stairs we had
to walk up every day, ugh.
This is the inside of the train station in
Baltimore, I thought it was pretty =)
This is the ceiling of the same train station.
And this isthe outside of it, the building
is really pretty, but it's cover by that
huge weird man statue thingy.
And this is the picture of the church
we can see outside our hotel room
window and it's a picture of the SNOW!!!
The night before I prayed to God that it would snow,
because I have never seen snow fall before. And
the next morning I woke up and it was SNOWING!
YAY! God answered my prayer!! And the even cooler thing is,
is it wasn't even supposed to snow that day.

Ok so all of the rest of my pictures are from Washington D.C. but I'll post those later =)
