From Christmas to now.

hello All! On a very late note, HAPPY NEW YEARS! I hope you had a great one! We sure did! We played Mario Bros on the Wii until 3:30am. We are so cool and I know you wish you were us! We beat the final boss and everything! :) Do we know how to party or what?

Yeah, see that big Bowser on the left side? See the tiny Mario on the right, It took us over an hour using our tiny Mario and Luigi to beat that big guy! New years was WAY intense for us!

Ok, so this is going to be one of those posts with crappy iphone pictures and me blabbing on about how much I love my family (Salvesens and Roneys)... because I do! Being away from them makes me appreciate them so much more! I think this Christmas for us was so amazing because we didn't take the time we spent with family for granted and so everything we did with them was just so much more special and so much more fun!

Waking up every morning and seeing family was so awesome. Playing boardgames with family was awesome. Watching movies with family was awesome. It was all just so AWESOME! (I realize I need more synonyms for the word "awesome").

The saying "you don't know what you've got til it's gone" is so appropriate. Obviously my family isn't gone but the convenience of having them around is something I miss tremendously.

So here are the pictures I took on my phone. Right now I'm just too tired to download the pics from off my camera but you'll get the main idea

(here are some pics. I have more from my side of the family but the computer is being lame and wont let me download them for some reason!! GRRRR)

Joseph (Tristin), Mary (Beatrix), and Jesus (Ophelia). Tristin seems stuck with the Joseph role. lol

Tristin and Ophelia!


On a less happier note, Tristin will be leaving for his retreat this coming Wednesday. I will miss him for the 4 weeks he's away but I'm sure he'll learn lots and so will I. It's sort of like he's going on a Mini Mission. He can't call me, he can only write letters. I think this is preposterous but WHATEVER! I didn't write the rules, I just have to obey them the best I can. Lets see how I do with the semi-single life again. That will be interesting, I'm sure.
