Christmas Eve | 2013

Celebratin' at the Cheesecake Factory

 Cheesin' it forever

 This is my "posh spice"

And this is my "Mary Kate & Ashley" close-lipped smile

Am I the only person that thinks this looks like Sauron's eye? 

Christmas girls!

Only half the lights on Tutu's tree are functional.

And she has to hold the star.

 Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!

Here We Come A Caroling...

Christmas Eve with the Stolworthys means heading to Tutu's house, reading the account of Christ's birth in Luke chapter 2, and then a musical program of some sort. In years past, that usually meant a painfully long, choreographed dance to *NYSNC's or SheDaisy's Christmas album, followed by very, very simple piano solos. Now it means Christmas carols, and impromptu concerts, Von Trapp style. So, as promised, the Stolworthy singers(with an assist from Tutu):

And as a little extra, the musical stylings of the twins you never knew the Stolworthys had:

Christmas at the Container Park

So, the container park opened at the end of November, and last night we took a little trip to downtown to check it out. It was pretty cool, and it's fun to see downtown revamped a little. And, I doubt anyone else down on Fremont is composting. We window-shopped for awhile, I bought some sweet midi rings, and then we ate at this taco shop(I guess it's name is drama?) All in all, a very good time. You should check it out, and tell me how the bbq place is. 

Dad and Hailey beating the cripple. 

 All of the store and restaurants are in containers!

This dude is balloons! 

Cute parents. *Please notice Dad's cardigan.

These rings are so sweet. 

The food was aiight. 

Merry Christmas Container Park!

Halloweenie | 2013

I put almost no thought into my Halloween costume this year, and I regret that. But I do not regret driving all the way to Sandy for $3 booritos at Chipotle with Hermione(Willow) and a sassy teacher(Anna). Nor do I regret driving to Springville for a party with French Kiss(Shelley) & Christopher Robin(Jared) or seeing Ender's Game at 11pm last night. 

Happy Halloween, dude. 

Hermione's a model. 

So good.

I walked around Nordstrom Rack like this.

So hardcore.

No, that's not Winnie the Pooh. That's a bear from Smith's.

The 4th | 2013

This year I celebrated America's birthday with Dad and Em. Like usual we ate really good food, went to the movie theater, and sang our little hearts out to Kelly Clarkson. 

The Stadium of Fiyaaaaaaaah! 

So I have this wish, and it's to see really famous songs sung live. Which I guess is a wish that most concert goers have, but this is a little more specific. I want to see the songs that made people famous sung live. At the Stadium of Fire, I killed two birds with one stone. We heard Carly Rae Jeppson's "Call Me Maybe," and best of all, we heard Kelly Clarkson's "Since You Been Gone." That song is just good. So maybe we took two really crappy videos to document this momentous occasion. I dare you not to sing along. 

Texas Roadhouse for the rolls. 

 Emily's killin it.

Em's first time a J Dawgs.  

We're all a bunch of weirdos, so it's a good thing we love being weird together.

Adeus Irmã Azevedo

A month ago I got to drop my second little missionary off at the MTC, but not before a massive mason jar full of Dr. Pepper from Station 22. Sister Azevedo leaves for Portugal this week! You can read her seriously hilarious emails here.

Newport Beach, CA | 2013

We went Newport about a million weeks ago, but I am just now getting around to telling you about it. I wish I could say I've been really busy doing important things, but I'm actually just trying really hard to be tan.

Anyway, Mom, Dad, Ally, and I stayed in Newport for a week, and had a grand ole' time. We pretended to exercise, ate avocado omelets, I spilled on myself at Ruby's pretty regularly, and we just had fun. It had been a few years since I had been able to go to NB with the fam, so this year was extra fun for me. 

Here we are at Yard House eating really good food. 

Ally had the best time at the Angels game.

It actually smelled really bad over by our seats, and the Angels didn't win.

These guys still look cute though.

Sunday, we went to church across the street from this pretty place.

 Part of the fam after church.

And right before we left we got to see Whitney, Cardon, and Harper(she's so sassy, I love it!)

Hopefully next year I'll still be unemployed so I can continue to mooch of my parents and their super fun vacations. *fingers crossed*
