Time, must you pass so quickly?

Where do I begin? Let's go with Christmas. It was a marathon 34-hour celebration (we calculated it) in Visalia, Fresno, Clovis and Fresno again across three bloodlines and five houses. Wait - six! After I finally got home from my Dad's house Christmas night, it was time for Jared and me to open our presents for each other.

It was freezing that day! The tea was delicious and it warmed us up.

I'm waiting for my books for the upcoming semester to come in the mail, and we've already put away our Christmas decorations. I'm really looking forward to 2010, though. I've seen very few movies, so I've made a list of just over 100 movies that I've compiled from "Best Movies of All Time"-esque internet lists, and by recommendations from friends. It is one of my New Year's Resolutions, which I already kicked off this week with The Sound of Music and Ferris Bueller's Day Off - I know, most people can't believe the movies I haven't seen.

In just over a week Jared and I will be spending the day taking photos of our friends Danica and Chase, then we have plans to take my parents to a hockey game, his mother out for dinner, and my dad and step-mom to a movie. Ahh! Oh - the year's also going to be dedicated to spending more time outdoors with Stephanie, Jared, and my parents with my new hiking shoes. 2010, I'm ready for you! For now, it's off to the thrift stores downtown to find an pretty frame for my new baby blue "Keep Calm Carry On" print - I think I'll need to see that daily this year.
