Christmas Card

I found out I have had three people from Poland look at my blog. Please come back! Unless you are the people who have been spamming me. Then go away.

I just took this picture for our family Christmas card. Everyone has to hold a letter of our last name in the picture. I am 'N.' Hence the letter. Anyway, here is a brief Christmas letter update on my life. In case my blog in general was insufficient for you to know.

Lets do a one thing a month thing okay?

January: I found myself back in Vermont ready to start my last semester of law school. I lived in a little apartment right across the street from the school. It was ideal, except there was no counter space.

February: I believe it was February when I was finally able to get to Middlebury Vermont and visit my friend Kathy and take a tour of Middlebury. I liked Middlebury. Go visit. I also like Kathy. I won't invite you to her house though, because that is rude.

March: I spent my spring break in Utah visiting my sister Alicia. I threw her a bridal shower and studied for the MPRE, which I then took the Saturday before I left at BYU. I also got to see lots of lovely people that I haven't had the chance to see since then.

April: I finished up all of my law classes and flew home to see my sister Alicia get married. It was great to spend a weekend at home with my family, especially for such a happy occasion. My sister's freshman year roommate Jenessa came and I hadn't seen her in a few years so that was nice. Also, my cousin Tara came to be the photographer and I finally got to meet her husband and her adorable son!

May: I graduated!! Wahoo! My parents and little brother came for my graduation and we saw lots of Vermont-y things and bought maple syrup and hung out with the Lyddys in Vermont and MA. I also said good-bye to Vermont and moved back to Arizona. Also, I almost got caught in a tornado in Oklahoma City,  which was one of the most terrifying experiences of my entire life.

June: I studied for the bar and only cried about it sometimes. Plus I showered almost every day!

July: I took the bar and only cried about it a little bit. When I was done. In my car. On the second day. Then I went to California for my Aunt Sandi's funeral. Although the reason for going there was not a happy one, it was nice to see family, especially my grandma, whom I hadn't seen since... well, April. I love my grandma yo. I like to see her.

August: There was my Grandma Reynolds's funeral, which brought more family time, including my Aunt Ellen and my cousins whom I hadn't seen for awhile since they live in not Arizona. Lets see, I started doing mission paper stuff.

September: More mission stuff. It took me a long time guys. Sorry.

October: I found out I passed the Arizona bar exam. I cried. Deal with it. Plus it was my birthday and I turned 27. Also I started working at Arroyo Elementary School. Then I got my mission call to Lyon France. Man October, you are such a great month.

November: I enjoyed a nice quiet Thanksgiving at home with the family. I also saw "Junie B. Jones Jingle Bells Batman Smells, and So Does May." It was cute.

December: Well there have only been 12 days in December. I went to Glendale Glitters. It was kind of lame. I went to Desert Ridge so my nieces and nephew could play in the snow and meet Clifford. That was also a little bit lame... but I am going to the midnight showing of The Hobbit tomorrow, so there is that. Plus my sister and brother- in- law will be here next week. NO WORK UNTIL JANUARY! Hazzah!!

That is my year in a nutshell. It was a great year. Some sad times, lots of happy times. All in all I'm pleased with 2012. So... bring it Mayans!
