Ho Ho Ho

Jeff and I had a wonderful, fun filled evening! Thomas and Jenny came with us to get taco's from the backyard taco place! AMAZING!! Then we headed back to our place and made Ginger Bread (AKA Graham Cracker) Houses! Kenzi and Callen joined in for the house making! It was so much fun!!

Jeff and I all ready for Christmas! I love our little tree and BIG presents! This was the first year we had our nativity set up and its nice to have so we remember the true meaning of Christmas!

I got pretty into building the house!!

PS We have a train that goes around our living room!

Subject: 2010Fall-P-PPE294-85193: Class Participation

Hi Abigail,

I was hoping that after our last set of email correspondence that I would see an improvement in your class participation. However, in cycle (which you asked if you could micro-teach because you feel the most comfortable) you got off your bike to leave the room for water on several occasions (you know you need water in a cardio based class), and today in yoga you laid on the ground and played with your finger nails.

I am contacting Connie Pangrazi and we are meeting to discuss putting you on a PIP plan. I just wanted to give you a heads up. In activity based class; Yes, you will get sweaty and yes you are still required to work just as hard to receive a good grade as you would any other class. Your grade is strongly based on participation in my course, so if you give a C effort, imagine what your grade for the course may become.

The course is now half way over and I want to make you aware of my perceptions so you may try to improve your attitude and class participation.

See you on Wednesday.

One semester down four more to go!!!
Bring it on!

This Stinks!

I'm carrying on the traditions of Mary Ann!!
Family Party = Deviled Eggs

Step One
Boil a dozen eggs, I always add a couple extra eggs in case some don't turn out!

Step Two
Cool the eggs, I let them chill out in some cold water!

Step Three
De-shell, cut into halfs and pop out the yolks!

Step Four
Add Mayo and Mustard! Mayo is way better than yucky Miracle whip!

Step Five
Bag the filling! This is a real easy way to fill the eggs!

Step Six
Add Paprika and ENJOY!!

ASU's PPE215 proudly presents their number one student!

#1 Indoor Soccer Goalie, MVP of the Championship Team!
(PS this is after I iced it!)

Took an elbow to the face in basketball! My two right teeth took the hit and went about half way back towards the roof of my mouth! I pulled them forward and ran to the bathroom spitting out blood! Now I can't eat anything real solid for a month until they heal back up!

Needless to say I'm so sick of getting hurt from this one class! I feel like I have been hit my a car! At least my class knows who the toughest girl is in the class!!
(Ignore the sweaty armpit)

Cowardly Lion

Today I woke up and decided I should do something about my hair! I brushed it out and then I realized...
I look like the Cowardly Lion! I now know why I was born with hair that is straight as a board! If I had curly hair I would look like a scared lion all the time!

(ps I might not have washed my hair for a while and I might have gone what is new with my life)

some sort of Chips
some sort of Fruit
some sort of Dessert
add a Dr. Pepper
and a Love Note
