So, as creepy as I know everyone says it is...but, Callista is my brand new baby Python! For my birthday, Ryan purchased her for me. I have wanted one ever since high school when my physics teacher brought his baby python in to show the class. We picked her up on November 8, 2009 and we fed her a thawed fuzzy mouse for the first time the other day. She lives in my living room! My 3 roommates were hesitant to agree with me that it was a great idea, and after only one week, they all love her! Kat has only held her twice, and Tacie was very welcoming the first day. Jamie took 2 days, but now holds her all the time. Here are some pictures!

We measured her at about 20-21 inches....it wasn't easy to do!

This is the home we built for her. This is practically a mansion to her. At the pet store, her cage was about 1 foot tall, maybe 8inches deep and wide.

...............The First Time Feeding!.........................


She's our new best friend, and will become about 4-6 feet and live roughly 10-15 years!

Bekah's Christmas Gift

So, I know I took FOREVER to post this, and I'd love to say it's because I'm busy...but really, I'm just REALLY lazy. So, this last year, instead of breaking the bank and getting all 8 brothers and sisters a gift, we decided on getting the sibling younger than you a gift....I really am not a picky person and I don't need much. This is the absolute only thing I wanted and you can't really buy it. My roommate has one and I always steal her earrings from it, so I desperately wanted it, especially considering my recent explosive fetish for jewelry. Bekah is absolutely amazing! Not only is it exactly what I asked for, she also made me a necklace to go with it and a necklace and bracelet holder too! She's the best!

Alright, so I keep forgetting to post this. My niece Gabi is so adorable! Her giggle always makes me laugh and feel so much better, no matter what is going on in my life! I ADORE her!

Oh, and did I mention my brother, Adam is crazy!

Yeah...That's right, Dare Devil!!!..I blame Adam!

This is for Mom!

It's been a while

Yes, I know. I suck at blogging. I enjoy reading everyone else's blog much more than writing up my own. Anyhow, a little mix:

Thanksgiving was great! I went up to Rexburg to spend it with Ryan. We made our own dinner and everything. I was really nervous about the turkey, but it turned out just fine. We each made something for the table.

Cleaning the turkey

Okay, so I guess we didn't have any dishwasher soap, so Ryan thought he'd be clever and use regular soap...The outcome?....


So, for Christmas, Ryan came down to Provo. We went and spent Christmas Eve Night and Day with some really good friends of his down here, Adam and Hayley. They were so fun to spend it with. We also go to go to my brother's place for a little bit and say Hi. It was a good Christmas!


Adam and Hayley

We also went out to dinner with Adam and Hayley to a Japanese restaurant. It was really neat!

My baby brother, Jarom, came to visit utah for Christmas and I took him snowboarding for his first time. I think he had a blast, but I almost though he was going to kill himself with how fast he would go down the hill because he "couldn't controll his board". ;)



The group of friends I got together to go with us

I think, besides the soreness and exhaustion, we had a blast!

Almost Forgot!...

...To mention school! By the way...I went back to school last semester. I'm attending UVU right now, Pre-Nursing. Last semester, I took Chemistry (from Jolene Young, best teacher I've ever had), a Chem lab, and Nutrition. That's 8 credits, and 40 hours a week at work. It's hard. I just started up this next semester taking Biology, Bio lab, Into to Nursing, and English-technical writing. 9 Credits and 40 hours at work. It's hard, but it's still fun. My roommates never see me, and everyone wonders why...I love being back in school. It makes me feel like I am progressing somewhere in life. I can apply to Nursing School after this semester. UVU is the #1 Nursing School in Utah, so I will try for it, but the plan is to apply a lot of different places. Ideally, UVU is where I want to go... So, I will also apply for the spring semester next year. I'm not sure what area I want to work in as a nurse, but I do know that I at least want to be a surgical nurse of some kind, assisting in surgery. I love that kind of stuff! Anyhow, it's a long update, and I'll do my best to keep on top of things from now on!
