Well, I don't try to keep it secret, but lots of times I don't know how I'm going to make it another day, and I live one prayer at a time.. i

21. What do you think of your friends?: Crazy (Simple Plan)
Well, I like to hang with crazy people, and I've got a lot of crazy friends.. but the song talks about the way society is falling apart around us.. the way money is our first priority, everybody wants to be like the "cool" kids, and families are falling apart. Hopefully my friends all see the same and want to help be a solution in whatever ways we can.

22. What's the worst thing that could happen?: Chap Stick, Chapped Lips, and Things like Chemistry (Relient K)
Well in the music video a ton of old people in a nursing home start moshing.. and they throw the band's music instruments all over and the band has to run away to avoid getting overwhelmed by the crowd.. but that wouldn't be all bad.. haha

23. How will you die?: Cherish (Newsong)
Cherishing the thought of Jesus waiting for me

I'd wake up to find God's glory defined in my life everyday.

New Year's Eve Party

The Capital at like one minute before this year.

I soo wish this wasn't blurry :(

Ellen, Tess, and Lizzy


Tess is starting to look all grown up and stuff.. it's not fair!!

August was being weird here... not quite sure what he's doing..

I was trying to get a goofy picture of Kurt to put on facebook, but this will have to do.. cuz I didn't get any silly ones.

My iPhone was REALLY popular!! Tess used it a bunch on the way to Jeff to talk to Megan, and for a while there with somebody, and on the way home, and Jacob used it for most of the rest of the time.. hehe

I think this was a waltz

Ellen and Tess doing the pretzel

More of the same

We were singing christmas Carols and stuff :)

Well, we had fun, although there weren't many people there.. we did a lot of the normal dances like physical snob, hole in the wall, progressive gordon's, and all those, as well as a couple new ones that were pretty easy but tons of fun, and of course the Scottish and Virginia reel :) But yea, it was pretty epic to go scream outside at midnight right across the street from the state capital :) It was pretty cold though! :P well, I'm going back to Texas really early tomorrow morning, so I'd better skitter off and start packing all my stuff up and getting ready! bye!

Happy new year!!! (more pix to come later)
