The main reason I haven't posted in a while is Facebook. I spend way too much time on facebook, and then less time for my blog/no time for my blog. I don't think I have anything too new or interesting to say, but I got a bunch of pictures. Yesterday afternoon I was really bored and started walking around and taking pictures. It was suprisingly fun.

I finally decided to post. Right now I'm at Grandma and Grandpa's house. G&G went to the early service at church, while the rest of my family went to the late one. But I'm at the house, sick. I don't feel absolutely terrible, but I have a sore throat, a bit of a headache, and a small fever. Anyways I've got 2 stories - 1. I foundthis YouTube video and it's hilarious - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1h7bfJTECU And #2. - We had an earlyChristmas!!!!!! We opened all the presents yeserday morning, then drove to Saskatoon in the late afternoon/evening. I got a mp3 player, a nifty little top-thing, and some candy. And I got other stuff I can't think of now. I don't have any pictures right now because I'm in S'toon, but I'll probably post pics soon. And definately check out the YouTube video -> It's super funny!

This picture isn't blurry because she was very, very still. Her name is Chloe, and she's the former french teacher's (former as of 1 month ago) daughter.

After a very stern and large-fonted email from Ben, I decided to post. The last couple days I've been thinking of things to post, and I've had great ideas, but i forgot them. I just remember something entirely irrelevant!!! The cancelled Corner Gas tonight. It's one of my favourite shows and I look forward to watching it every Monday night, but tonight its replaced by some "Red road" or something. About the picture, it's the volleyball finals from last Thursday( we won, by the way) Appartently i'm blinking, but I love the look on Bryant's face (sitting on my right) Okay, that's the end of my post, but hopefully I'll manage to post before Ben yells at me again.

Yesterday we were in New Orleans (southern's say Norlins or Norleens). It was awesome. On the drive there, we stopped in Diamondhead (between Pass Christian and New Orleans) and I bought a pair of Mississippi State pajamas (with the Bulldog on it) and then we finished the hour and a half drive to New Orleans. We started by going to the aquarium. As we walked towards it, we saw a trumpet player, and put some money in his box. After the song, he gave us the advice "get drunk and do something stupid. Because the people here don't care and the people at home won't know." (we didn't take the advice) The aquarium was amazing, but the pictures aren't really that great because of the aquarium's lighting, and the fact everything is behind glass underwater. I will give you the pictures anyways, but I'm in the airport right now so I'll put them on later today. After the aquarium was mostly shopping. We went down Bourbon Street and a couple side streets and bought a N.O. sweater, t-shirt, and probably something else. We had supper at Bubba Gump's and I am now convinced that I need to see Forrest Gump. I think my plane out of Gulfport (15min from Pass Christian) is leaving right away, so I should probably go.

Strangely, both of the good pictures I took to day were on Color Accent, which makes everything black and white except one color. The first is a toad we found, the second is my mom washing a van while Les is goofing around. Today was pretty uneventful. I forgot to take a "end of Day 5" pic, but it wouldn't have been good anyways. We put some plywood on the sides below the roof, but you couldn't see the change anyways. Tonight we're shopping (I want to buy a U of Mississippi sweater) and then going out for a crab supper. Tomorrow we're going to New Orleans and doing something. I don't know, probably touristy stuff.
