empty library // TRADITION

Let's talk Christmas!! Because....you know, somehow Christmas becomes illegal to even think, let alone sing, about for the other 11 months of the year. :P lol! I'm not one for traditions - I like to mix something adventuress in with the old. I love the thrilling feeling of OH this is NEW! lol! I have always tried to rub that off on my family, but alas...no. ;) And as to Christmas morning - I have had this weird thing for always having to be out of my pjs. My mom laughs so hard when she recalls as to how, when I was like 5, I would come down on Christmas morning all dressed and with my hair perfect (at least in my mind.). lol! I've always been the odd one. ;)

 I GOT TO DRIVE MY DADS NEW TRUCK!!!!!!!!!!! (and before Bree too. ha!!!) *victory dance* Somehow I got him to say yes, and I partially regretted that at first. Once I got in the big thing, I was like "wait..what am I doing???". But I made myself BACK out of the driveway, drive into town, and PARK the thing (more than once lol). xD I was also a bit nervous since it is rare to have my dad in the passengers seat. I think I did well enough to warrant me taking the wheel again. :D  

 I went to the library the other night. Okay, people, did you know that on Wednesday nights, libraries are DEAD?!! I walked in there and it was like.. *crickets*. It made the whole library experience.. extra extra EXTRA quiet. I felt like I was Arthur in the episode where he got locked in the library...only I wasn't locked in there. BTW, did you know that Christmas is in 6 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) 

Weird fact about you??
Are you scared to drive big cars?

Merry Christmas!!!!

    1. Hahaa, really? Driving is fun!! LOL! Were you able to finish any projects? I wrapped all of mine the other day. :)

    2. I got some worked on, haha. I didn't finish any that night. But, I did get two quilled projects started and finished yesterday, after babysitting for several hours... I was shocked, haha. I'm glad, though, since we needed to give them to the folks at church today! I still have stuff to finish...I wish mine was all wrapped... Lol!

  4. I don't go to the library often. I know that I would be slightly freaked out, though, if I walked in and the place was practically empty!

  5. I do the same thing with getting dressed before going downstairs on Christmas! Only I started around 10 ;) We go to the library every Monday for a Spanish class and there are always a ton of people, I couldn't imagine it being empty...

  6. Love your posts, Julia! A weird fact about me is that I am the BIGGEST Shane Harper geek EVER.
    I do absolutely love to drive big trucks! The biggest car I've ever driven has been a Turbo Diesel Truck. That was such a fun experience. I'd do it all over again!!!!!

  7. Hmm... two facts about me are:
    1. Chocolate + peppermint is really gross to me. XD (No York peppermint patties for me!)
    2. I am really good at knowing people's name. Not really people I meet fleetingly, ;) but names of characters in books and celebrities' names. Yeah...haha! ;D
    Merry Christmas!!
