Merry Christmas!

Well it seems as if everyone has something to say about their Christmas this year and I am not one to be left out. This Christmas was, not surprisingly, warm - ish. Here in the desert things don't tend to get very cool, a light jacket has served all my needs this season. We went with my grandparent to their church a few miles down the road. They had a Christmas program with songs and scripture readings. After it was over I just couldn't keep my hands off of the piano any longer, (I hadn't played for about two weeks) and played... not quite to my hearts content, for we soon left for home.

Though I am not so fond of the materialistic side of Christmas I did enjoy the presents. :)

I had no idea we would receive so many gifts but the first time I walked into the house I couldn't help but notice them. There's no stopping my grandmother. :) The presents inside of the boots are our traditional gifts from my parents, our very own carton of eggnog. Dad got one too, dairy free even, Silk Nog is what it's called. You should have seen his face when he saw it. :)

Hidden Treasures

This is where I'm spending my time right now. Except I'm in the city part of it so I don't see all of this anymore. This was on a stop off of the highway.

I'm sitting here at my grandpa's house out in the desert, (it's quite amazing he has a front yard... with green grass. I have seen so many yards of pebbles lately.) and just enjoying life. I'm happy to see my older brother again, he's got a job out here at Chick-fi-la I am really glad about that. My little brother is so cute! He is going to start walking soon. *grins*

Skirts Vs. Pants

NOTE: Since writing this post back in 2011 many things have changed in my life. I no longer wear only, or even mostly skirts. I still have the same convictions about being a woman, and being proud, and standing out in the world as a Christian but the way in which I live out these convictions have changed.

Taken earlier this summer, my sister and I having fun in our new dresses.

Well It's been decided, I am officially a skirt/dress girl. I've decided to wear (almost) only skirts and dresses. Probably the first thing you may think of is "She thinks it's immodest to wear pants." or something along those lines. Well that's not exactly it. I came about this decision gradually over a course of years.
