the past few days

Christmas day
after the leftover Christmas wrappings were all put in a big box, and everyone had gotten their last dinner + dessert helpings, the family piled into the living room for a game of taboo. and boy-howdy, it got loud. really loud. so, a few rounds in i decided to take a break and snap some pictures. 
the day after
the day officially started at about 11am, when i finally got my dander out of the bed and dressed and went downstairs. there's no clock in the room i'm staying in, and with the curtains closed it's quite deceiving as to what time it really is. i think my inner teenager comes out at grandma's house. 
that night, joy donned her adorable new fedora from grandma + grandaddy, and i took the opportunity to snap a few pics. isn't she a natural? too cute. 
the 27th
after a bit of misunderstanding regarding swimming and such, i awoke at 6:30am and put on my suit and left for out-of-town swim practice. after which, i got back in bed and slept half the day away. not literally, of course. being the girl that i am, and also regarding the fact that i never get to go that often, i convinced grandma to take joy and i shopping. we came home with several parcels full of cardigans and dresses and such. needless to say i was quite the happy one. 

uncle q & aunt mary surprised joy and i by taking us bowling. guess who scored a strike + one the first round? this girl. and if you're wondering, i got this lovely striped cardigan at forever21.
the 28th
wednesday was the zoo. insert uncle q, aunt mary, joy, me and a camera up close and personal with a giraffe. we did see aslan, of course, but he was napping so i didn't really want to disturb him. he's very beautiful, by the way. 
though the animals were the main priority, i couldn't help but snap a few pictures of joy + these really irresistible flowers on our way. by the way, did i ever tell you that monkeys are cute?
today was sort of laid-back. it started with early morning swim practice, a nice long nap, and ended with a trip to the children's museum. my big brother is coming over tomorrow and right now i think i'm going to treat myself to some banana pudding. without the banana, of course, because if you know me, you know i don't like bananas. so until next time, i'll leave you with the last of the autumn foliage:
-kiss kiss kiss, hug aslan- he won't bite. maybe.
{pee ess: 292 of you guys. oh my lip gloss.}
