"Twas the night
(week) before Christmas,
when all through
the House (Library)
Not a Creature was stirring, not even a Mouse."

Work is DEAD.

I've helped one person all week long.
(okay, so I'm in the basement
where we don't get that much traffic normally, but still)

I guess no one wants to spend their Christmas vacation
in the school's library...

I don't really mind.
Gotta pay for Christmas presents somehow...

But on the brighter side,
I'm all ready for Christmas!

All my presents are bought and wrapped!
All there is left is a few deliveries and Christmas baking!

3 more Days!

Micah Turns One

My nephew, Micah, turned One Year Old today!
To celebrate, we had a joint party with both sides of his family.
All the Aunts. We just can't get enough of him :)
Birthday Kisses!
My sister came up with the cutest decorations to go along with her theme of
"Look 'WHOOO' is Turning One!"
Above is Micah's wishing tree.
We all wrote on the back of the owls one wish that we had for Micah's future.
And below are the cute, mini cupcakes she made for all of the adults to eat.
She is always worried about her creativity,
but as you can see, she shouldn't be.
She did a great job, and she did it all by herself
because everyone has been so busy these past 2 weeks.

It was a great party and the food was so super delicious!

Dear Micah, (for when you're old enough to read this)
Happy Birthday, Boonie!
I can't believe it's already been a whole year since I waited
in the hospital hallway to meet you.
I remember the first time I got to hold you.
You were a sleep in your cute, yellow preemie pajamas
(which were still too big) but you grabbed onto my pinkie
and I was instantly in love with you.
I've loved every minute that I've tended,
played, held, fed and snuggled you.
You are the only person in the world
that can make me laugh as hard as you do.
Sometimes during my day, I think of you and laugh out loud
at a memory of you exploring, or a face you've made
or even at the times where you got into mischief.
(yes, you are still super cute when you're in trouble or crying)
I'm looking forward to being able to continue
to watch you grow and learn.
Heck, you would have thought that you were my own kid after this post.
Pssh, who are we kidding?!
I love you like you were my own kid!
I love you, buddy!
Love, Aunt Nae

Finals are Finally Done!

Well, I made it!
The semester finally ended.

Not all of my classes had tests for the final,
But the three classes that did had them today.
Yup, that's right. Three finals on the last day.

This semester was surprisingly harder than I thought it would be.
The classes that I thought would be the easiest, The hardest.

Last week, the last week of classes, was one of the
hardest weeks I can remember.
Everything seemed to come tumbling around me.
I may have had more than one melt-down.

I won't know until Wednesday next week what my grades are,
but I'm just excited to have it all behind me.


Good Riddance School Work!

P.S. Here's one picture from my final photography portfolio.
(my theme was different perspectives.)
Once again, I have a new appreciation for those people with photo skills.

My dad probably won't be a fan that I posted this picture,
but it was my class's favorite one
and I wanted to give him a shout out for being such a good sport
and model for me so I could get a good grade.
Thanks Dad! Love you!
