After-Christmas Update

This Christmas has been a really great one!  I've had a lot of fun with family and friends and made a lot of memories.  Here are some of the highlights via photo:

I was a bridesmaid in my best friend Noor's wedding!  I'm so happy for her and Brandon!!!  (And that's me, fourth from the left!)

At that wedding, I got to see some friends, including my old roommate from last year that moved out of town!  My boyfriend also wore, for the first time, a pullover sweater I got him for Christmas.... Mwahahahahaha!  He looked GREAT.
Left to right: Jacob, Aria, Alyssa, Sarah, Laura
My grandmother got me a box of old hats and accessories!!!  You'll DEFINITELY be seeing those popping up soon in my posts!
Going snowmobiling with the cousins!  We like tying up saucer sleds behind them and trying to throw each other off.  I face-planted and rolled today and looked like the kid off of the movie "A Christmas Story".... which I've included below, for full effect:

The only not-so-great part of this year was that my parents have gone back to Africa where they work, and they'll be there for the next four years if all goes as planned (but they'll be able to come back to visit for my college graduation and important things around that time).  It's been WONDERFUL to have them here this year, and I'll miss them a lot!  However, some things are more important than being comfortable, and even more important than family.  I'm really proud of my parents and what incredible people they are!
