A little update:

So here's a bit of what I've been up lately.

Charity was telling me about this book b/f break, and said I should read it sometime. I ended up finding it at Half Price Books last week, along with many other treasures(such as The Importance of Being Earnest, all three of the original Star Wars movies in book/script form, Les Misrebles, and a few others) and decided to just go ahead and buy it.
It had me from the first page. I love books like that! I suppose all the collateral reading has taken away some of my desire to sit and read, so finding a book that just hooks me in from the beginning it wonderful.
It was both weird, and really good. I liked it's oddness...that's probably why it sucked me in, I haven't read anything quite like that b/f. It does bring up some interesting questions though about oneself...


Also, Mom has been cooking, as have Jocilyn, Nichole, and myself. Well, I mostly try to get out of it, but I've done some. I enjoy cooking at times and am quite capable, I simply prefer to do it of my own free will and at my own pace. Another words, I don't like having a "head chef with an agenda".

Anyway, I'm having a great Christmas and enjoying my family! We've had fun playing some new board games, watching some "Christmas musts," and just being together. This morning a new aspect was added with the gift giving and receiving.
I love watching everyone's reactions to their gifts! Not to mention of course getting to play with my own my new Cannon Powershot A470!!! So exciting!

I think my favorite gift was the one labeled: "The Barr Kids" was a Nintendo Wii. My parents are crazy! Not to mention way to old to be diving around the living room like that. You really should see mom play tennis on that's hilarious! I'll try to get a video of it.

Anyway, here are just a few candids I managed to snap on my new toy this morning...enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Lord of the Flies - good book. I read it in high school. It gives such a unique perspective of what society would be like if rules and order were not made and enforced.

By the way, you look so gorgeous in these pics.

Hmm, I sense a sudden influx of pictures on your blog.

Anyway, I think I pretty much agree with Megan on the book. I read it in HS as well and enjoyed it muchly. Ralphie! The kids are like maniacs. Man's heart IS truly evil.
