Merry Christmas!

For Christmas this year, all of my siblings came home. It was really fun. We went to the movies, played dodgeball, and ate lots of delicious food (thanks mom!).
On Christmas Eve we played basketball at the park, boys against girls. I jammed my finger really bad, but the girls still won. Later my finger swelled up to twice its normal size and I got bruises on my finger and hand. It was really nasty. I will spare you all a gruesome picture of it. Don't worry though, my finger did not inhibit my ability to have fun; I still had an amazing Christmas! Hope all of your Christmases were as great as mine! :)

School :(

This has been a wonderful summer, but like all wonderful things, it must eventually end. So today I started my Junior year of high school. After getting over my end of summer blues, the day turned out okay, but the real test will be tomorrow...

High Adventure (Part 2)

After being tired and sore from Half Dome (we didn't get to our camp till 2 am) we got to go white water rafting. Highlights from the trip include:
  • Tunnel Chute ( a level 4 or 5 rapid)
  • Jumping into the cold water
  • Spending time with friends
  • The Guide
  • Paddle High 5's

High Adventure (Part 1)

I have always been jealous of the boys in my ward who get to go on High Adventure. They always do super exciting things. Last weekend I got my chance to go do these fun things with the boys. After our previously planned trip to Havasupi got canceled, We got to hike Half Dome in Yosemite.The hike was over 16 miles total.
Along the way, we saw waterfalls,
400 foot cables,
and lots of wildlife (there were groundhogs living at the top of the dome, and bears at the base of the trail)!
But I finally made it to the top,
Every Young Woman made it to the top!!!! Aren't we amazing?!?!
Just to give you an idea of how hard and how high it was, this is the view from the top.
Don't look down!
The hike took us 12 hours total. It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life, but it was worth every mile!


I went to Especially for Youth in July. It was AWESOME!!! I loved it! I got to go to lots of classes and devotionals, as well as dances. I made some great new friends too. Here are a few pics:
