Random Thoughts

Just a few random tidbits on my mind.  I spent the first part of December in Idaho and loved the snow and the family time.  (I promise I'll post pictures one day).  Candice and Sarah spent the better part of the time with us and it was fun seeing the interaction between Sevy and Sarah only being a year apart!  We were there for Shawn's and Candi's birthdays and had a party for all of us (December is a big month for our family)!  Talking to Candice is like playing 20 questions and I realized I need to do that more.  She asks question after question to get to know me even though we've been sister's for almost 27 years.  I've decided I need to ask people more questions to get to know them better.  I enjoy answering questions, and love to hear other people's stories.  Maybe I'll add it to my New Years Resolutions list.

Another thing I've come to realize is just how cool my cousins are.  I think I have overly creative, artistic, and freakin' awesome cousins.  If you don't believe me, just check out some of their links under my "family" lists.  They are creating records, are on itunes, amazing photographers, talented chef wannabes, awesome ad campaigns makers, competing in races (and winning!), and are story tellers to boot.  I just learned how to make my blogpage snow thanks to my cousin's blog!  Family reunions are a riot, and I'm sad that I've missed out on the past few.  Basically, what I'm trying to say is that my family's got skill.

I'm also excited to share that I'm famous!  Okay, not really, but I'm in a magazine!  My immediate family has a few published bragging rights.  My Mom was Miss December in the Diet Center Calendar when we were kids.  My Dad was a centerfold (not that kind--ya sickos) in a German magazine with his T-28.  And now I'm on the list with my photo in Self Magazine in the January issue (page 68).  Self is my favorite magazine and they had a thing to write in on how they helped you lose weight.  I sent my story in and voila!  The picture and quote are totally nerdy, but I'm excited.  Be sure to check it out!

I'm thinking of sending Chinese New Years cards out this year since I failed once again at Christmas cards.  If you are interested in receiving one, be sure to post your address!

We are now in Amarillo to spend Christmas with Jon's family.  Everyone will be here so it should be really fun.  They just did a home makeover on basically the majority of the house and it's amazing!  The kitchen is any chefs dream!  (Once again, I'll post pictures sometime).  Sevy is loving her cousin time again and it's going to be hard going back to Houston after all the time she's had with ALL her cousin's this month!  Hopefully I'll get some photos downloaded.  Until then, Merry Christmas!

I love you, Katrina. I need to get a copy of that magazine. I love Self too. What month was it again?

You will have to scan your pic, and post it.

I think our family is pretty awesome too. You in particular.

Love,

Candice
