Christmas

Yay!! I'm finally updated, though there are a few things I missed. In October, I went to the halloween dance with some friends and one boy that I pretty much got set up with (the dance was girl's choice). It was my first date and I had lots of fun. I've been on another date since then with a boy from my old ward. We went on a double date and saw the Golden Compass (this movie was way good. there have been rumors about atheism in it, but i saw nothing that could be atheist in the movie) and had fun at that. Thanksgiving also came and went and I went shopping on Black Friday with my mom and aunt.

I just have to say that Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it--the excitement, giving, the music, Christ's birth, etc... It is so fun to spend it with those I love. I'm so grateful that Christ was born into this world to bring us the greatest gift of all. I hope that you and me can remember that and have fun this Christmas season. And now, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! Happy New Year too!!!

Nutcracker

Nutcracker was in November and it was my favorite year of all (this was my 7th year). I was a Lady in Waiting and I had such a blast with the girls who did it with me. They were so fun and sweet that you just had to love them! This was an unforgettable event for me! This is Sidney as a party girl with her friend who played Clara, which is the main part.

This is me pretending to be a snobby Lady in Waiting!


Here is Cee Ryle as a party boy. He doesn't take ballet, but they take boys with no experience because they need them all. He had fun and he wants to do it again!

This is Carina as an oriental servant. She and I danced together and Cee Ryle and Sid danced together. It was fun!

Halloween and my 16th B-day!!!

On October 4th, I celebrated my 16th birthday. It was so cool, because I went to school and some friends sang happy birthday to me at lunch. I went to ballet and when I came home I was planning on just going to volleyball, but it turned out that my mom had planned a surprise birthday for me! It was amazing! It was one of the best birthdays ever.

We celebrate Halloween and I didn't really have anything to be, so I pulled out an old chocolate chip cookie costume and put it on top of me. I went trick or treating with my family a little and then hung out with friends. It was pretty fun.
This is the cute pumpkin I carved! If you can't tell what it is, its a little french guy with a beret.

Summing up the Summer

Ok, so this is it! The beginning of my relivened blog (yes Zildy, that was for you). This entry is just telling about the summer that happened forever ago. So here it is:

After my ballet recital I got to go to youth conference with our ward. It was a lot of fun. We went to Seven Peaks Water Park, saw the Manti Pageant, stayed overnight in some apartments (my friends and I pulled an all-nighter!), and did a ropes course! I had a blast and I'm way happy I got to go.

At the end of June through the first of July, we had all the family on my mom's side come for a huge family reunion. We got together because three of the cousins (one of them being my brother) all turned eight and got baptized together. It was way cool and fun and turned out to be the highlight of my summer. Here are some pics to show all the fun we had!



Here are the three baptism kids all together. They are soooo cute! The one in the middle is my bro.


We went swimming at a rec center. It was fun and as you can see, we got a little crazy.


We all made matching shirts for the 4th of July and here are all the cousins with them (the adults didn't do them, but they were jealous!).


Me, my sis Carina, and my cuz Alex. I was glad to see Alex again after so long. We have tons of fun together.

We had to retake some pictures at temple square and everyone got a little restless and played in the little pond (I'm pretty sure it wasn't a swimming pool!)


Here are all of the cousins on my mom's side and some from my dad's. It was crazy fun!
Later in July after everyone left, Carina and I went to girl's camp. We went to Heber Valley Camp and stayed in cabins. Here is a picture from the hike a group of us went on:

After girls camp, we went to Wyoming soon after and stayed at a resort that my uncle works at. We got to go 4 wheeling and fishing. We also went to the Buffalo Bill museum which turned out to be really cool. We came home after a week and the next day I went on a 2 day river run with the laurels in my ward. I wasn't 16 years old yet, but they let me and another girl go because our birthdays were close enough. It was really fun. The first day, we did a little shopping in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (Wyoming again, I know) and the second day we went rafting. It was a lot of fun and I hope we go again.

As a summer job, I worked at Lagoon and I was able to get my family some passes to get in for cheap so we went a few times in the summer. It was fun (going to the park, not so much working).

A little after school started, it was Labor Day and we went "camping" in one of our old friend's backyard with a lot of other families, because we couldn't find a campsite. We had fun getting together with old friends and catching up.


One family had a wave runner and my mom and I rode on it together.

Me and my mom posing with some pig sculpture type thingy.


All of the teenagers together while the kids panned for gold.


Psycho me pretending to ride on a pony!

The summer was really fun, but way busy, but I had a good time. Hopefully next summer will be even better! Check my blog again for more posts, because it really will live again!!!

My blog will live again!

I really don't have much time to write right now and I've been horrible with my blog. But I promise I will really try hard to keep it up. My life is so busy and I need to record it, but that is also a reason for me to slow down on my blog. I'll try to spend some time each week to write about my life. Keep checking and I promise there will be more! Happy holidays!
