Here's an update as to what's been going on this past little while... I've been reminded of how my entries tend to be a tad on the.... insanely long side, so I'll try to keep this short and sweet :D Just like me... or not :P I was tall once, but I seem to be shrinking these days. Hm, we could do a correlational study to see if height of an individual is related to the height of the entry... but I digress!
Skiing conditions at Blue Mountain were incredible for December! Good thing we went when we did as it's rained since then. Not that many people either, though my dad got to help carry someone's skis down, since they were being taken to the hospital... so my dad's doing well on the Mountain Safety Patrol so far!
I've got to see some old friends, from both Church and Highschool. I hung out with Odie, Baldeep and Deepa at Deepa's suprise birthday party... it was huge, so much family! Everybody seems to be doing pretty well though (especially Baldeep with her German cheerleader!) It really drives in how rarely I get to talk to everyone when I keep getting asked how Crystal is!
Despite Jenna's attempts to thwart Donny and I from going to the youth choir practice (she was actually successful!) we still ended up singing for the early Christmas Eve service at our church... it was fun to sing again! I really miss being in a choir, especially with how Iain runs everything.
Got to see Jess and Jake and uncle Jim (as well as his girlfriend Sarah and her kid Ryan). They're actually old enough to play Risk now :D Though not enough patience to finish a whole game...
Some of the highlights from gifts I got are Shadow of the Giant (by Orson Scott Card), Wicked (the book) and one of those flashlights that you shake in order to recharge the battery! I meant to ask for one, but forgot... some how my parents just knew ;) And! I got a dolphin-shaped bottle opener! So hopefully I'll get to put that to good use this coming term!
And we now have David, Sarah, Eric, uncle John and aunt Diane over... so I'd best be off! This entry was a bit shorter, wasn't it? I tried anyway! Merry Christmas to you all!
