this was just taken a little bit before this christmas. my feet are in the green & dan's are the white/blue. weird!

& emily on the horse. {guess it was popular. haha}

country concert. i think that's little big town.

jessie & i in '09

jessie, emily & i. good neighbor days '09

samuel wearing a mountain lion hat. genuine. just kidding!

me a few days after i got this phone. old! '09

lacey, wearing some fake glasses. {she loves it. haha}

right now i'm trying to {slowly} download some of the photos you see here from my phone onto my computer.
my mom took my phone with her {out of town} because hers busted, so she is using mine for the time being.
but last night, we went to the verizon store to see if we could set up a contract, but alas, we didn't have time.
i was thinking, last night, i might get a new phone, so i sent all the photos from my phone to my email.

but anywho, i was looking through them all & it's funny to see such old photos.!

i can't wait until saturday!

life is a highway.

last sunday we went & saw debbie reynolds! it was so exciting! she looks amazing for being 78.

and then we went to our friends house for sledding & games.

today i was fitted with my "real" retainer. so just when i had gotten used to the temporary retainer, i had to get a new one. oh well.

oh and a couple a few days ago lacey got her hair cut!
{finally. she looks so cute!}

sissy left for colorado today.
i reallyyy miss her, a lot!
{and it's only day 1}
