December - 2014 Monthly Selfie

This last one is a bit of a copout selfie. I took it in my car on the way to work, because I like to live on the edge. 

I exhausted any creativity left for this year to come up with something for December. Any actuation left in my body disappeared this month. I'm so glad it's finally over. I fucking hate the holidays.

Christmas Day

We spent the day with my parents. It was quiet and nice. It was weird not having my brother or my nephews around but sometimes that's just how things work out. I got to lounge in my pajamas and lay on the couch all day. 
It had not snowed yet in Utah in the vally. We usually start getting snow in October but this year it waited until Christmas Day. It was a nice surprise but now I'm over it. 

Happy Christmas!

This is super late. Fuck it. 

We couldn't decide between two different cards this year so we sent both out. It made up for not doing one last year. 

These are not the actual cards that wee sent. Those photos were too large to keep on my phone so you're getting the Instagram versions which aren't that different anyways. I'm blogging from my phone today which is why you're getting multiple posts in one day. Suddenly I was nervous to get it all posted before the end of the year. Dumb, I know. Why start worrying about it now? I yell at myself. 

Christmas Eve

We had Tyrone's family over to our place this year for Christmas Eve. It was really nice to spend time with them. I made enchiladas and cookies and we watched Scrooged and Bad Santa. My nephew and niece are older now so the level of adult humor they can handle is higher and it makes it funner. They both tower over me which still wigs me out because they were so little when Ty and I started dating. Kiana is 13 and 5' 10". Terrell is 17 and around 6' 2". Damn!! It blows my mind. What made it all really special was because we had not spent the last few holidays with them. I was just so glad it all turned out well.

If you know me I don't like Christmas, but I do like to decorate for it. I actually love sitting in my living room with the twinkle lights on watching Christmas movies.

German Christmas Market

A few weeks ago I went to the Christkindlmarkt at This is the Place heritage park. It's a historical place about Utah ie: super mormon-y. Alas, I can't resist German food so I was excited to go. My SIL loves the stuff too. We all went except Tyrone and my brother; they both had to work. Ther was a lot of walking around to do. 
This pony tail is killing me.

October Indulgence

Please indulge me while I play catch-up. 

The last Saturday in October was the last Saturday that Lagoon was open. We had a free day pass to use up before the end of the theme park's season so we braved the crowds for Frightmares. 

It's been a little over a month and I can't even remember why Tyrone had this Saturday off. Whatever the reason was I was pleased I'm sure. He never has Saturday's off.
