Early Christmas with the Meldrums

It's that time again for Christmas and Family. I am so happy that I got to go to Washington for a couple of days, I had a lot of fun. During our family get together Donnie and Christina came over and Bryce and Emma made cookies. Bryce stirred and Emma rolled the dough and cut the shapes out. Both of them put frosting and sprinkles and on. We had a lot of fun.

Here are some more pictures. Enjoy!

Here's another fun video.

Oh Rexburg...

Today, it snowed in Rexburg. But what's new? It always snows in Rexburg. Today I discovered a new kind of snow called "slush" were the temperature raises in the middle of a snow storm a makes big fatty flakes of snow, freezing rain on the ground, and melts slowly unless it lands on a previously snowed on area (which isn't to hard to find here). I also developed a new way to get around campus; it's called "shoe skiing". This can only happen right after a "slushing" or if other weather conditions are met. Basically, if you get wet snow you can "ski" or slide your way through campus. The only draw back is your socks get wet and you spray everyone around you with slush. This is good for getting someones attention unless it's the wrong kind of attention.

So anyway, it continues to slush and by tonight we with have an inch or two of ice on the ground. Thanks goodness I don't have to work tonight.

Uzumaki Naruto!

Well, as you can see, I'm dressed up as Naruto from the show. Naruto is a ninja who was born and soon after was sealed with a demon fox into him by the fourth Hokage (village leader). The fourth Hokage did it to save the village and hoped that the village would look at Naruto with respect and honor. The opposite was true and Naruto grew up being shunned by the village. Instead of turning bitter and evil, Naruto decides to make everyone recognize him by becoming the next Hokage and vows to never let anyone feel the same loneliness as he did.
I went to the clark building and had Ashla help me sew the costume together. I also made some kunais and some shurikens. I can't wait till Halloween!

This is me as the cool Naruto

This supposed to be my angry face. I think someone just ran to find their bunny slippers

Do you like the ninja wraps I have on my feet?

Does this make my butt look big?

Late Pic!

So, I finally figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer. It only took me a year and a half. Good thing is now I will be taking more pictures with my phone cause I know other people will actually see them. To start off, I decided to show off my beautiful baby nephew Mason. This was him around his baby blessing time. He's so chunky and cute! I can't wait to see him. Hope you're doing well Sis.

Fall Semester 2010!

This here is Mic (short for McKlin) and his birthday was this past Tuesday. You can imagined the shock when we presented him a birthday cake packed with frosting and fudge.

He was pretty happy to dig in.

This is our apartment minus one. From left to right: Zach, Mic, Joe, Me, and Little John

This will be a good semester for sure!

Seattle Homesickness

Okay, so, living in Rexburg has a lot of good points:

Lots of single girls your age, fun things to do, college resources like pianos, music tech labs, a library, and a vast genealogical library.

Unfortunately, the one thing that I hate about Rexburg is how dry it is! My sinus have never been the same and my hands constantly crack and bleed. Geez. Plus, it snowed 2 weeks ago. That would never happen in Seattle. I miss Seattle's moisture.

Spring's Semester's starting!

Well, I haven't blogged in a while but now that I have a new computer that will change. I have been working at wal mart trying to save for the new semester but find myself unable to because of the financial burdens I'm placed in require a large sum of what little money I have. This makes me more determined to be sucessful in life and be able to have a comfortable lifestyle.

My grandfather passed away this week and I drove with a friend to attend the funeral. Grandpa Wickard passed away only 75 days after his wife Doris passed away. The funeral services were well done and my Grandpa received a military burial for his service in the army. I'm proud of who he is and that I have the opportunity to pass on his legacy. Thank you for joining the church and allowing me the opportunity to hear the gospel.
This is craters of the moon in eastern Idaho. It really looks like your on the moon!
Here is some typical mountain scenery found all over the mountain west.
And yes I did go over 100 mph in my little ford focus. It was sweet!

Doing whatever

Man I tell ya, finding a job is one of the most annoying things in the world, especially in this economy. In Rexburg, I had a job at Wal-Mart, but I were to transfer to another Wal-Mart, it would be impossible to transfer back because Rexburg is a college town any everyone is looking for a job and they would replace me so fast it's not even funny. So, here I m again surfing the web seeing if anything pops up.

I tell you one thing though, Seattle is a really nice place. After living in Idaho and Las Vegas for a little while, I've come to the conclusion that Seattle beats the pants off any other state.

Any way, I have one quick story. Monday, I was helping my sister organize her garage and I ended up spending the night because she need help the next day. So, after we had all climbed into bed, about a half hour later we heard several gunshots right next door. We all jumped out of bed to secure the situation. My sister called 911 and my bro-in-law grabbed his gun in case anything went down. The police were there in literally a minute and they secured the premise and to my knowledge no one was hurt. Tacoma is a scary place to live.
