monkey attacks (not for the light-hearted)

hasn't every little child, or older child for that matter, wanted a pet monkey. i know i have. i've always wanted to trade david in and get a pet monkey in place of him. yet when i saw these pictures and reports, i wasn't so sure anymore.

it's so sad what cute little monkeys can do to people. most of these people also said that they'd owned the monkey for a few years and it just unexpectedly attacked them. it's sad how a cute little monkey like this

could turn into a little devil like this

jazzy airport

so on wednesday we went to the dulles airport to go caroling!
it was super fun cause we sang for 5 hours and made people SMILE! haha
and then after lunch we got a tour of the old control tower!

it was really really cool. we even went all the way up to the tippy tippy top!!
and on the way back down, the air blew our dresses all the way up! luckily i wore shorts underneath so i was fine with it. but some of the girls were doing some marilyn monroe moves.

haha it was pretty funny.
here are some pictures we took. we were all there except one girl!

so i guess i'll do what anna suggested because i'm terrible at coming up with my own ideas.
so here's my list of TEN THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE!!

1. jump out of an airplane.
as in skydiving.
i'm sure i could actually jump though, so i'd probably have to be pushed.
but that would still be so tight (nathan)

2. sing a solo.
in front of a lot of people. like, at a concert or something. don't know if i'll actually be able to do that, but who knows. maybe i will magically become super brave and can do it.

3. temporarily straighten my hair.
it would just be fun to be able to take a shower and still have straight hair without spending 3 hours straightening it! how cool! and it would become curly again sometime.

4. wear red contacts.
that would be awesome.
i have a friend who wore red contacts on halloween and he looked so creepy. i didn't even realize it when i was talking to him cause he was looking down, and then he looked up and i got really creeped out.

5. get married and have a family.

6. own a dog.
this has been a life-long dream from before i was born.
but it only counts when i actually remember the dog.

7. obtain a british/english accent.
how cool would that be? or actually any type of accent.
i just don't like having a monotone, no coolness voice.
"come on ya'll. let's go to the rodeo!!"

8. go shopping in new york and not worry about money.
(sigh) goodness gracious. that would a dream come true.
just to buy anything i wanted and not worry how much it costs.

9. punch someone. (meow anna)
i've actually always wondered what it would feel like to just sock someone in the face.
would my hand hurt? would there be a bruise in the shape of my knuckles? am i even strong enough to inflict a bruise? would their jaw be squishy?
just so many questions that need answers!

10. meet jon mclaughlin, david archuleta, michael buble, zac efron, matt damon, jeremy sumpter, Cam Gigandet, and others probably that i can't think of at this moment.
man if only this were to happen, i think my life would be complete.

so there anna. there are a few of the things that i want to do with my life.

i feel it my obligation to write however i have nothing interesting to share with the world. and so i followed the advice of my younger brother and have clicked "random article" on wikipedia. what i came up with was this: Aggtelek National Park (in Hungarian: Aggteleki Nemzeti Park)

hmmmm..... so i will write about this now.

this is a national park in hungary. that's pretty cool. it's a pretty big park, most of it is underground. it has the largest stalactite cave in europe!! it's called the baradla cave.
wow, some caves have special powers so to say. like, there's this one cave called the peace cave and it treats asthma. that is tight. so if you have asthma, go to hungary and you will be cured!!

turkey trot and moving!

we are finally settled into our new house. well, not really settled cause there's boxes everywhere, but we are now staying here!
it's so exciting! and warm.
some mover dudes came over yesterday to help move our big heavy stuff so that was good. my room is really cute and cozy and the pink wall looks awesome with my comforter.
lacy-ballet is also staying in my room now - more incentive for me to clean her cage regularly!
so after loading, unloading, packing, unpacking, lifting, and whatever else we had to do, we finally went to bed last night.
then we wake up this morning at 7:30 and head over to do our annual turkey trot.
oh my goodness, my muscles were so sore!
we had originally signed up to run the 5k, but dad's knees were very painful, so he and mom were gonna walk the 2k. and i didn't want to go by myself, so i went with them. and david ran the 2k and finished 9th overall!
and afterwards, there was pizza, granola bars, apples, oranges, bananas, and stale bagles!
it was actually quite tasty.
today for thanksgiving we are heading over to some cool cats who invited us over cause we got nowhere else to go. so that's pretty cool!

*when will it snow??*

It's here again folks! WINTER SEASON!!
and you know what that means right? snoooowwwww!
and as always, the snow guessing game! this is when you get to guess a day when you think it will snow, and whoever gets closest to the real day, wins a candy bar!
here are the rules (as officiated by dad):
1. can only choose one day
2. cannot change your day
3. mom or dad must see the snow/snowflake in ashburn, va
4. if two people guess on the same day, and that day wins, both get a candy bar

so enter your guesses and we will pencil them into our official Snow Guessing Calendar!

Celtic Woman and Celtic Thunder

Celtic Woman are my idol. they are a group of six Irish women (like mom!) who are amazing singers! the members are: Chloë Agnew (she is my FAVORITE) Órla Fallon Lynn Hilary Máiréad Nesbitt Alex Sharpe Lisa Kelly (on leave)

they have the most angelic voices ever and they give me shivers!!

Now Celtic Thunder is a group of five Irish guys who are now a group. their members are:
Paul Byrom George Donaldson Keith Harkin (c.u.t.e.)
Ryan Kelly Damian McGinty (only born in 1992!)
I am totally obsessed more with Celtic Woman. especially this song that Chloe sings:
it is soooo good!
AND Celtic Woman is coming to Wolftrap!! That would be a super Christmas/birthday/for fun gift!! (hint hint)

no pressure...

so since there was no school on either monday or tuesday, the...district i guess, decided to have district choir auditions on tuesday the 4th. yep, election day. BY THE WAY, is anyone else bummed that Barack Hussein Obama won? oh well... our country's crazy anyways. ANYHOO, so on tuesday we had auditions for districts! fun funness.
the song we had to sing was called Come Again. a very interesting song. kind of from the oldenish days. but yeah, with the song i was feeling good, feeling prepared.
so on the busride there i was like "hey, i should read twilight since i brought it with me and i have nothing better to do!" so i did that. and ended up getting kind of 'bus' sick. which made me really tired and disoriented.
so i went into the audition room to audition and the people started the music so i started singing. and that was fine. not perfect, but whatever. then we had to do sightreading. and they assigned me to number 3. so i flip to page number 3 and look at the sight-reading. my head started swimming. AND I THREW UP!!! jk, tricked you for a bit haha. but no, i just did terrible though.
see, when i usually do sightreading, i sing on lalala, but this time, i was like, hey, i should sing on solfege. you know: de re mi fa so la ti do.
well....that totally threw me off. like, i could see that the note went down or up, but i didn't think how far or anything. i was singing re's when it should have been like, do's or mi's. and i was singing la's when it should have been ti's. the hardest was the jump from la to re. boy it was rough. so i left and was like, darn, i'm not gonna get in.
oh well. i wasn't like crying or anything.
so i get home and i'm thinking about it and stuff and then i realize that i've made all-county and all-district choir every year since 6th stinkin grade!!! that's when the pressure started sinking in.
and then i woke up. hahahaaa. jk jk jk.
i ended up making it, which is a huge relief! but now there's all-state choir auditions in like, march or something. AHHH the pressures of a choir girl.
but it's fun and that's what i live for! singing and fun!
this is called solfege :)

this is me when i sing and people can't see me haha

Monday, November 3, 2008


so i was at my friends house looking for music (as in my previous post) and another friend came over and recommended some songs. there was one...dude who he said he liked and i instantly FELL IN LOVE! andddd he's cute. so that just makes it so much better. this "guy"'s name (or his band, whatever), is called Basshunter. go to this link and you will see:
my favorite song is All I Ever Wanted and then Now You're Gone.

what's yo flava? tell me what's yo flava?

recently, i have been asked to be on the stake youth committee. it's a group of youth ages 14-18 who help decide things about youth conferences, dances, and other activities. so, i am now on the committee and our next gig is this upcoming saturday. my friend and i have decided to help with dances for the committee. this saturday's activity is a dance! fun fun!
soooo, we get to have some say in the music. unfortunately, we have to give the leaders the name of the song and composer so that they can look up the lyr
ics before they "air" it. the reason this is unfortunate is because they look way too deep into meanings. for example, the song "dancing in the moonlight" by...someone, the first words of that song are: "We get it on most everynight,..." but the whole song is about dancing! they are DANCING most everynight! but no. they're like "NO! THAT'S IMPLYING NAUGHTINESS!!!". so we can't play that song. so here is a list of some of the songs (that i can remember) that we have chosen for the leaders to look at lyrics so far:
- disturbia by rihanna
- fall from a star by kill paradise (thanks nate)
- the boys are back from hsm3
- umbrella by...punk goes crunk? i think that's what they're called
- love story by taylor swift

- love story by katharine mcphee
dang i have terrible memory. well these are just some of them.
but here's your challenge. do you have any song ideas that are clean or a version that is clean?? because we need more ideas. all they ever play at the songs are everytime we touch by cascada and chacha slide by....whoever. so yeah, ideas are appreci
by the way, this dance is a BARN DANCE!! how cool! we are gonna have hayrides, apple-bobbing, pie-eating contests, and even....a a greased pig!!!!

Halloween/Trunk or Treat!

tonight for mutual we had TRUNK OR TREAT!
if you're thinking i just spelled "trick" wrong, you're wrong!
trunk or treat is when all the parents park in the church parking lot and the kids go around to the cars and go "trunk-or-treating"!! super fun! as youth, we get to have some games for the kids to play when they're cold or what-not. i was in charge of the "cup-cake walk". it was pretty fun. i got really into the dancing. :)
oh, and i dressed up too. some teens may think they're too cool to dress up, but really, they're the ones missing out. so me and two other girls dressed up as the NINJA TURTLES!!
it was pretty darn cool. i had the trash can lid as my shell. haha.
and because i'm not allowed to go real trick-or-treating, i guess this was the real thing for me!
here are some pics of david's costume, us carving the pumpkins, and the pumpkins themselves. mine's the coolest!
so this is david being a....scary army dude guy. cool cool

this is us carving pumpkins for family night. notice thriller playing on the computer screen. oh my goodness, first time i've ever seen it and it made me laugh so stinking hard. "i'm not like other guys." "oh i know, that's why i love you." "no, i mean, i'm really not like other guys." and then he turns into a werewolf or something. bahahaha. i laughed really hard while david peed his pants. :) jk jk jkbefore...
AFTER! cooleo! the first one is mommy's, then davids (just imaging the "throw-up" coming out), then mine- the COOLEST ONE EVERRRRR!!!, and then daddy's cute one)

this is pretty much what i looked like. i even had the swords and brown stuff tied around my arms and legs. awesome.... haha and for green pants, i wore some that dad had worn when he was like...23/24 and they fit me! like, actually fit me. it was pretty cool.
