Looking Back at 2010 (in photos)

These are some of the highlights my 2010:

{Warning: Another very long post with lots of pictures. ;)}

In March:
I turned 16 years old!  And had my very first store bought cake. ;)

I also got my lap top! <3

In April:
I was finally able to tell my good twin friends apart. ;)  Kricia is to the left on the bunk bed and KayCee is standing on the right.

Also in April, Mom, me, and Annie went to Women of Joy for the first time.

And got to see Sarah Palin speak!  Which was really neat!

In May:
I helped lead my first girl's Bible study.  And the girl's that were in it (which also happened to be my best friends) came over for a Bible study/ sleepover.  Which was so much fun!  And we now have sleepovers as a regular thing. :)

My doggie, Nickel, turned five years old.
{Sorry about the blurry picture... :P}

With the help of some awesome helpers (Mom, my grandma, and Annie) I painted my whole room along with a few pieces of my furniture.  It took an entire week and by the end I was so tired of painting!  But I love the way it turned out! :)

Also in May, I went to my home school group's senior banquet for the first time.

One of my good friend's graduated this year. :)

In June:
I was a VolunTeen!  I volunteered at the hospital this summer and it was so much fun!

I got to sit in this awesome chair!

In July:
I went to Crossings summer camp with my church youth group.

And I got blobbed for the first time! :)

I got this sweet hat from the chef at the hospital.  It sits on my bookshelf in my room. ;)

In August:
I did a lot of stuff.  Haha!

I went tubing for the fist time.  And loved it!

I became a Junior in high school. :)

I started nursing classes at the college.

My dad, brother, and I went to a Rebelution was awesome!

We had a swim party with my friends at my grandparent's house.  So fun!

And I did this.  Haha!

My BFFE, Kaela, got baptised!  I was so proud, I cried. :)  Love you, Kaela Jo!

In September: 
I took my permit test...and passed!  Whoot!  Two days later I started to learn to drive. :)

In October:
My grandparents hosted a big cook out at their house and my grandaddy took us all out on a hay ride.  This is me and some of my friends that came. :)

We also went on a big family vacation.

To the Corvette Museum.

The Creation Museum.

The Zoo.

And to a Matthew West/ Josh Wilson concert. :)

In November:
I got 6 inches of my hair cut off.

We had a big Thanksgiving dinner at our house. :)

And we got another real tree. <3

In December:
We went to an awesome Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio concert.

Then a week later we went to the Unified Music Fest and got to see...

Rush Of Fools

 Sanctus Real

...and The Afters!

I helped plan a surprise birthday party for the twins (KayCee and Kricia) who turned 20 years old! And boy, were they surprised. ;)

This was the 16th year of my life...and one of the best.  If not the best.  Sure, there were some hard days.  Some days where I was sad or angry or hurt.  But there were so many good days.  So many days filled with laughter and amazing friends.  I made some of the best friends I've ever had this year.  That includes you, too, wonderful followers. :)

All in all, I had a wonderful 2010.  And I hope you did too.  Happy New Year!
