A short update...

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas this year!!! I sure did. And guess what my dear parents bought for me? DRUMROLL…A VIOLIN! And they also got me to get lessons as well. Caleb also got a violin and lessons. I’m SO excited! Is there any felicity in the world superior to this?!
We also had the privilege to spend another Christmas Eve with my relatives (on my Mom’s side), and I got some pictures and will be sure to post some as soon as I get them loaded on the computer.
Caleb received the complete first season of Leave it to Beaver for Christmas and we’ve enjoyed watching it over and over and over again. It’s such a cute show and I can’t wait for the other seasons to come out on DVD.
Also on Christmas day we (meaning my family and our church family) had an extremely enjoyable time at a family from our Church’s house. Including eating (of course!), jumping on the trampoline (Okay, at one point there were actually six of us ‘big kids’ on the tramp! Two of which were much heavier than the rest of us! :) hehehe. Well, they ARE 19 and 25!), talking (duh!), hunting for frogs (don’t worry, I only watched that from a distance!), and pretending to push each other off of the dock by the pond (the guys came up with the idea that we’d all stand in a circle and spin a bottle, whoever it ended pointing at had to be pushed in the lake! It pointed at Abigail Allison, but she wouldn’t go in! lol. Don’t worry, Abigail, I wouldn’t have gone in either! :)You are not alone!). All in all, we had an exciting Christmas and an excellent New Year!
I hope to load pictures on the computer as soon as I can, and I will be sure to post them when I get a chance.
Happy New Year!!!

A violin is a wonderful present! It's so much better when you have one of your own and don't have to rent or borrow one. The next time we see each other we'll have to play something together; playing with other violinists is so much fun!

Congrats on the violin...I think it is the best instrument in the world(Maybe that is because I play it as well!)! Have fun with lessons.

Hey, Jessica!! Long time no see...or talk...or whatever. *grin* I got your letter the other day, and what a surprise! It really brought back memories...:)Anyhow, I have *zero* time for writing snail-mail right now, but Hannah gave me your blog address and I'd love to be able to talk on here. And, you have my blog, too, though non-members can't comment on Xanga. However, there is a little 'e-mail me' option on my page if you feel like doing that, too. Whatever...:)
BTW, I like your blog! Very cute. :)
