Catching up

I know I haven't posted in awhile and a lot has happened.

I spent a few days in San Diego with my friend, Lauren, and her family. It was awesome! We stayed at the Hotel del Coronado (beautiful) ice skated on the rink by the beach, had great food and visited Shamu.

Thanksgiving went well. We celebrated with some family that we usually don't see on holidays, such as my dad's cousins and his aunt. Susan, one of the cousins, does karaoke at rest homes and she brought her whole karaoke system with her. I never thought I would do karaoke at Thanksgiving. That was fun and a little strange at times. They made me sing "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic; that is such a sappy song. My mom pointed out that the songs I sang all had attitude and she's right: "These Boots Were Made For Walking," "You're So Vain" (it was so cute to watch my great aunt Elizabeth clap and sing along to this one), etc. Pictures are of my dad, Landon, Perry, my mom (who sang despite a voice that was practically gone) and Susan.

I got sworn into the state bar. So I am licensed to practice law. After the ceremony, my parents threw a little party at our house. It was fun. A lot of my friends and family came. My mom put together a table of my law school and bar prep study materials; yes, it's scary looking and that's not even all of it. Megan has most of the pictures on her camera, but here are two that I have.

And it's December, which means it's Christmastime! This is a picture of me and Megan in front of Disneyland's Christmas tree. I love Christmas and I'm so happy I get to celebrate Jesus' birth without studying.
