Baby, it's cold outside....

BUT NOT COLD ENOUGH TO SNOW, DARN IT ALL TO ANTARCTICA!

Freaking drought.

I mean really.  Like.... I remember having snow from September to June! And now? Now it's December 6th and we haven't had to shovel once.

(I'm not complaining about not shoveling. I hate shoveling. But no snow in December makes me sad.)

I want one of those giant snow storms that makes schools close and gives people five foot berms, and keeps you inside with coffee and fires and Christmas movies.

I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER GREEN CHRISTMAS, OKAY!?


Speaking of!!!



What's up, mein minions?

It's been over a week since I posted.


Freaking lack of WiFi.


We put up our Christmas tree!

No, it's not decorated yet. We tend to wait a little bit between setting it up and decorating, because..... I don't even know why. It's a lot of work to set up and decorate the tree, I guess.

What? No! I don't just put frost and stuff on my pictures to make them look good. Shhhhh.

The little girls were really excited and it was adorable.


I don't like getting my picture taken so I eyeballed Bella like a bird while she photographed me.


Bella, on the other hand, is a freaking diva.


And I can smile when I think about it.



CHRISTMAS!!

Like... it's not even three weeks away anymore. And I'm so freaking happy. I have fabulous pressies for people, and I'm more excited to give them to people than to open my own.

(I might not get any, I haven't exactly been saintly. I have anger management issues. I'm lazy. And I don't like to be nice to people.... FATHER CHRISTMAS IS GONNA LEAVE COAL IN MY STOCKING AND THAT IS SAD.)

Whatever. Ask anyone. I buy fabulous pressies.


It's my best friend's birthday today.
She's eighteen.
I hate that she's eighteen.
She's old.
I'm older.
We're adults.
I hate being an adult.
BUT SHE'S EIGHTEEN.


My little sisters did an ice skating performance tonight. It's their first. AND THEY LOOK SO CUTE IN THEIR LITTLE OUTFITS. Unnnng. Like. Pink and sparkly and shyyyy. And it's so cute.


I haven't felt like drawing lately. I've been busy... ish. Busy enough.

However, because of the recent viewing of ice skating I've been doing. I have ideas for new drawings. (Also a short story Hannah let me read was like... MIND BLOWN I NEED TO ILLUSTRATE.) 

And lately I've been like, "CHRISTMAS CAAAAARDS. I NEED TO DRAW CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR  EVERYONE."  And then, because I'm me, I get overwhelmed, and then I procrastinate because I'm a moron. *high fives everyone who is a fellow procrastinator.*

I did, however, draw this. With lyrics to one of my favorite Christmas songs... like ever.



I played chess for the first time in like a year and a half.
I lost.
And then I won.
And then I lost again and threw a fit, because I'm a brat.



I like going to Staples. But I'm not telling you why.


I want to watch While You Were Sleeping again. It's like the cutest movie. (I've only seen it edited, though, so I'm not sure if it's dirty or not.) But seriously. It's freaking adorable. Watch it. NOW!

I also want to watch Silent Night. Because Silent Night is about Christmas and soldiers during WWII and I love the WWII time frame.

And One Magic Christmas which starts out happyish. And then gets really sad and then gets really happy and I love having my emotions toyed with by a movie made like thirty years ago. It's so worth it though.

Also, the Grinch cartoon, because.... nostalgic memories, OKAY. 


My leg is asleep.

Freaking pins and needles.


I am excited to wrap presents and put them under the tree and guffaw at people trying to figure out what they are.

Have I mentioned I buy fabulous presents?


We listened to Josh Groban's "Believe" from Polar Express. Seriously one of the best Christmas songs ever.

I love Christmas songs.

I love this season.

I'm rambling.

I'm done.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, MEIN MINIONS.

Hopefully I'll be back before another week goes by.

Freaking lack of WiFi.

I need to draw and send out packages.

I love you all.

Cheers!!

  1. So I typed in your blog address and was literally saying to myself, "I STILL HOLD OUT THE HOPE THAT YOU POSTED LAST NIGHT, TRESKIE!!!!" Imagine my glee when I was right!!!! ;-)

    I AGREE ABOUT THE SNOW. It's like, I walk outside and am like, "WHEAH IS MAH SNOW????" We've had a few storms and a little bit of snow but not enough and now it is alllllll gonnnnnneee. And I won't have a green Christmas. It's either gonna be white or it's gonna be brown an my goodness, I hope it's white.

    As for what's up, I'm just trying to finish up school, work, and looking forward to Jess coming home! (eeeeee!)

    CHRISTMAS TREES! We put up ours the day after Thanksgiving. XD Well, put up isn't the right word since we use our lovely potted ficus tree (DON'T JUDGE, IT IS FABULOUS AND I LOVE IT FOREVER) that we've had for years and years and years (and it has surprisingly lasted, despite being left outside in a hail storm or many, crushed by falling bodies, and hit by flying tennis balls, baseballs, and footballs. I have three brothers. ;-)) so we just put it in the middle of the room and decorate it fabulously.

    Ah, the Treskie Bird in its natural habitat... ;-D

    But I don't know why you don't like your picture taken. You are so gorgeous!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRIEND OF TRESKIE!!!!!

    I am turning the big one eight in a couple of months and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhh I DON'T WANNA. D-: I DON'T WANNA BE AN ADULT!!!!!!!! ADULTING IS SCARY. All I can do is go around singing "The Mortal Boy King" by Paper Kites..."WE'RE GETTIN' OOOOOOLDERRRRR!"

    Ermahgersh, the skating little ones sounds way too cute.

    About my short story: D'AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. YOU ARE WAYYYYY TOO SWEET!

      I like putting together pressies. I don't like wrapping them because I'm not very good at it. I look at what I have wrapped and go: -_-

      Other people be like, "Is that a piece of trash?"

      Also I always seem to get my hair stuck in the tape. IS THAT ONLY ME????

  4. I had this weird but vague idea of drawing christmas cards like zentangle and colour and stuff. AH HA HA HA AH AH. no. one actually needs time and, like, preparation to do that. *sigh* I'm so unorganised. I have Christmas cards to send to America but I don't think they'll get there in time now. MY BAD.

    Christmas tree setting up is definitely exhausting. xD My mum is a bit of a perfectionist though and did all the setting up and then didn't like it so she re-did it. 0.0 I just kind of stand in the background and eat fruit mince pies. I LIKE Christmas food.

    Aww, coal in your stockings? SO SO SAD TRESKIE YOU BAD GIRL. lol ;-)

    Omg, your chess pieces are adorable! I LOVE THEM. I have a kind of similar set? I haven't played chess in years. My dad mercilessly whoops me every time and after a while I just concede permanent defeat.

    1. Oh I never get Christmas cards out on time. It's a thing with our family. XD XD

      I LOVE IT THOUGH. Yeah, with our family, we can't have a perfect tree because we have so many kids it's just not gonna. I LOVE CHRISTMAS FOOD.

      Ehehehe. I know. I am ashamed.

      I KNOW THEY ARE ROBIN HOOD AND IT"S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! Amy and I are really well matched so it usually it's a win lose win lose type thing. I threw a fit because my younger sister beat me and I hate that. XD

  5. Merry Christmas to you too!!! You are so stinkin' adorable in those pics. There is NO reason for you to be camera shy. I, on the other hand *ahem* haven't been able to pose decently for a picture since I was like, six. Seriously, one of my friends is a photographer and he said I was the most difficult subject to capture looking normally - ever. Anyway... :D

    Ok, so have you seen the most recent episode of Supernatural?!?! Oh. My. Goodness. Dean and Sam talked about their dad!!! And I couldn't stop squealing with delight at what they said!!! And I kept thinking about you!!! And your post!!!

    Alright. I'll calm down and leave you alone. Merry Christmas, again!!! :)

    1. Hahaha, thank you. *ehe* I"m not camera SHY, I'm more just, I don't like the way the pictures turn OUT. lol. BEING IN FRONT OF CAMERAS IS SO FREAKING AWKWARD LIKE... WHAT

      NO. I mean to. It's on DVR, but I haven't gotten a chance! And I'm also afraid, because midseason finales are always painful. BUT THEY TALK ABOUT JOHN WELL? A;SLDFJA;SLDFJADS;LFJA;SLKFJAS;LDKFJA

      Thank you. Merry Christmas!

      Cheers.

  6. Yay for Christmas and decorating!!!! I'm kinda finished with mine but I still have some cleaning and tweaking to do before that happens :P

    *happy sigh* Little younglings make Christmastime so much more fun :)

    " I have anger management issues. I'm lazy. And I don't like to be nice to people." Treskie, this made my whole day. Seriously! I COMPLETELY feel the same way! I'M NOT ALONE! *hugs*

    *high fives* I ALWAYS take on way too many projects before Christmas (and throughout the year, really) thinking I will finish them all and have time to spare. Then I go and procrastinate, leaving a pile of unfinished projects waiting for next Christmas. I will most likely be found speed-crafting on Christmas Eve :P

    Christmas movies are the best! Some of my family's favorites are The Snowman, The Christmas Card, Elf, Babes in Toyland, and A Muppet Christmas Carol.

    YOU HAVE A ROBIN HOOD CHESS SET?! Awesomeness! We have a medieval set that I haven't played in ages.....

    Lovely post, Treskie. You made me laugh :)

      *hugs back* Hehehehe. That sentence is literally me all summed up. lol. I'm glad it make you happy.

      Hahahaha. Procrastinators rock.

      I haven't seen any of those, except Elf. lol. You should watch One Magic Christmas.

      I DO IT WAS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT. Chess is fun.

      Good, I'm glad. XD
