Dear Noelle, this post is for you! Happy sweet 16! I hope this year is very good for you, and may all your wishes come true! Happy Birthday Darling!

P.S. Sorry this is so short. We are frantically packing, so I had to! Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday!

Well, as some of you know, I have been taking swimming class for the past couple of months, and I am going to be competing on the 10th. It is my first competition, and I am very nervous. Please pray that I do well, and that I don't have my bathing suit fall off when I dive in the pool. There are tons of rules, and I don't speak Spanish that well, so it is fairly difficult to understand.
Now I'm just gonna give you a quick update. We have decorated the house, and I'll try to post pictures soon. We have been restaurant singing, which is quite hard, as there is only three of us. We are gonna go to the states for Christmas. We are leaving on the 12th, and we are going to visit our family (that counts Anisha) for the hollidays. I also really want to visit you, Noelle. I haven't seen you in forever! I really miss you. You have to visit us sometime soon, Savvey? Shelly out!

The following is a story I wrote for my language arts. The assignment was to write a biblical fiction based on the Good Samaritain, (Luke 10:25-35) in someones point of view. I chose one of the thieves.
I pulled myself up, peering of the the edge of the rock, trying to see the road. There was no one there yet. We had been waiting for over three hours in the sweltering sun. Caiaphas, my partner and brother, was snoring next to me. His face was now bright red, and I was sure that mine didn't look any better. I heard nothing but the wind and the occasional hiss of a snake. I felt like drifting off, everything was so quiet, but I shook myself awake. It wouldn't do to fall asleep and miss a traveler. I wasn't able to get a job, so I made a living stealing. It wasn't the life I would have chosen, but I didn't have any other way to support my wife, three children, and widowed mother. My brother, on the other hand, actually enjoyed stealing. He wasn't the brightest man, but he was strong, fast,(though he didn't look it) and a good fighter.
Hearing a creak, I sat bolt upright, almost hitting a rock. I dared to glance at the road again, and saw a man. He was riding on a cart, laden with packages. A donkey was pulling the cart. I slapped my hand over Caiaphas' mouth, then pinched him. His eyes flew open, hand going for his knife. He relaxed when he saw me. I gestured towards the road, and Caiaphas understood. I took my hand off his mouth, and we crept down the small path, heading towards the road.
We made it to the road in about a minute, then sauntered up to the man, who was eating his lunch. Caiaphas had his hand on his knife, ready to draw it at a moments notice. I calmly told the man that if he gave us his money, he wouldn't get hurt. He refused, so Caiaphas beat him into unconsciousness. Caiaphas boarded the cart, while I bent over the man. Taking his money pouch, I pressed a coin into his hand. It was a custom for me. I then climbed onto the cart, and Caiaphas gave a yell, making the donkey move. We then started towards our home, in a small town near Bethany.

Ants are probably going to take over the world.

They are evil, and they are everywhere. They come into your house and they eat any food that is lying around. And Mom is obsessed with them. I'm just quoting her (Or roughly paraphrasing, anyway) In her mind, they are probably going to team up with the flying cockroaches and destroy the planet.

This is yet another post that is incredibly random.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift--that's why we call it the present.

Have you noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anybody driving faster is a maniac?

I can insult my best friend, but heaven help you if you do.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it into a fruit salad.

If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters.

Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more

If you don't like me, there is nothing I can do. Here's a newsflash Honey, I don't live to please you!

When someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles to frown, but it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and punch the person who made you mad.

Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? ..He's a mile away and you've got his shoes.

I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking so good either.

I'm sorry, yesterday was the deadline for all complaints.

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look to impressed.

Anger is one letter short of danger.

One day your prince will come. Mine? Oh, he just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is to stubborn to ask directions.

Fun things to do on an elevator:
1) CRACK open your briefcase or handbag, peer inside and ask "Got enough air in there?"
2) STAND silent and motionless in the corner facing the wall without getting off.
3) WHEN arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act as if you're embarrassed when they open themselves.
4) GREET everyone with a warm handshake and ask him or her to call you Admiral.
5) MEOW occasionally.
6) STARE At another passenger for a while. Then announce in horror: "You're one of THEM" - and back away slowly
7) SAY -DING at each floor.
8) SAY "I wonder what all these do?" And push all the red buttons.
9) MAKE explosion noises when anyone presses a button.
10) STARE, grinning at another passenger for a while, then announce: "I have new socks on."
11) WHEN the elevator is silent, look around and ask: "Is that your beeper?"
12) TRY to make personal calls on the emergency phone.
13) DRAW a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers: "This is my personal space."
14) WHEN there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder, then pretend it wasn't you.
15) PUSH the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
16) ASK if you can push the button for other people but push the wrong ones.
17) HOLD the doors open and say you're waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say "Hi Greg, How's your day been?"
18) DROP a pen and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream: "That's mine!"
19) BRING a camera and take pictures of everyone in the lift.
20) PRETEND you're a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the Passengers.
21) SWAT at flies that don't exist.
22)WHEN you get inside jump on everyone there.

Ugh, Ugh,Ugh.....
I hate solid geometry. Seriously. Who invented that torture??? Who? I think they wanted to fry helpless children/teens brains. I spent an hour and a half on three problems, because I couldn't figure it out. Mom didn't know how to find the area of a rectangular solid, and Tory was watching her math videos. Anywho, I painted a really cool picture. :) Do you want to see it?
