A Friendly Little Homey Update. :)

It's been awhile since I did one of those. Sorta sad, isn't it? I mean, a blog is pretty much supposed to be a little collection of snippets about daily life...but, we've gotten off track here for a little while. Seems like it's all just been giveaways, giveaways, events...I know ya'll don't mind the "giveaways" part, ;) but we're going to get back on focus here, now. I promise!

Anyways...let me fill you in on the little snippets of everyday life. :)

It was my sister Olivia's 18th birthday in January. :) We went up to a nearby mountain (yes, we live only an hour away from the mountains! Die of envy, desert peoples..;) to go skiing. We have really gotten into skiing over the past two years, and this year even went and bought a little pass that was on discount. We have gotten a group of friends to go up, too--though, our family are the only ones that ski; the others snowboard. I mean, c'mon, skiing?! Totally not cool, right?? ;) Hehe...

{Some good friends who helped us celebrate}

Also in January, we had the priviledge of getting to visit the S. family (Lynnae blogs here). They are such sweet friends that we have known for nearly our whole lives, :) but we only get to see them once a year! :(  We are determined to fix that, however..;)

{No, this isn't *everyone*...:) }

{Music, music, music everywhere!!}

..And then, a few weeks ago, we got a small group of girls together and went to a missions conference called "Mission ConneXion." One word: a-m-a-z-i-n-g. :) The thing was held at a church--all free, with tons of 'workshops' to go to on every subject imaginable. I learned so much, attending one on striving to reach out to unbelieving friends, one on family relationships, and so much more! We had fun together, too, and I met some other sweet young ladies! <3

..So, yes! Pretty much the "bigger" events of the past months. And here are a few smallish things, in case you were interested:

~We are hoping to go skiing next week. Yay! 
~Shelbe's family just had their tenth baby, a boy named Mitch. <3
~I am keeping busy with school, running, piano.
~The homeschool choir I play for recently did a "concert" at a local nursing home.
~I am reading "Adam," by Ted DeKker..ooh. C'mon, I can do this! :I
~I wish I could do track..
~My regency dress is coming along; I have one of the puffed sleeves finished..*sigh*
~The ball is in two weeks. Sew, Lucia, sew! :I
~I have recieved a package in the mail every other day for the past week.

Ohh, the joys of giveaways! ;)

Anything exciting coming up for you in the next few days?
