Christmas decorations have been up for awhile, but i finally took some pictures for my December daily album yesterday, i love the way our house looks close to Christmas! All of the different things that we have looks so beautiful, so i thought i would share.
Also made some Jam cookies, it was a simple oatmeal cookie recipe, and then i stuck some rasberry jam in the middle of two, and made a cookie sandwich, sooo yummy!!!
Trying to use these next couple days till christmas to catch up on my december daily album. i'll post some pictures once i start finnishing some pages.

before i get into the story i have some things to say, Life comes at you at a thousand miles and hour, and it can change in a split second, and i am so thankful that i am here right now, and that me and all of my peers are okay, and healthy, and unharmed physically. So here's what happened:
okay well today was a normal day until 1:30 this afternoon, when our whole school went into lock down for like 4 hours!apparently this girl who goes to our school broke up with her boyfriend who is not in school, so this guy was pissed off, and the girl and her best friend knew that he had a gun on him. Well today he sent her a threatening text or something, and then came to the school with 2 of his friends, and then the next thing you know our whole school is in lock down. i was in a student council meeting, with like 16 other people, stuck in a small, small room, no windows, no nothing, and pitch blackness, like you could seriously not see your own hand in front of your face! so we stayed there, and i thought it was just a practice lock down, but we were sitting there for 40 minutes, and then school ended, so we were like wow this is real. and then the police came in the school, and they ran through the whole school, checking doors, and making sure there was no one in the halls. and then they left, and we didn't hear anything for another hour and a half.
and then they stared evacuating the school. so like another 20 minutes of that, and then they got to our room. an like busted the door open, and had their guns pointing at us, and were like "Get down on the ground, put your hands in the air!" and like Oh My God they had gun's pointing at us, it was only police, but i mean come on!
that doesn't happen to just anyone, so then we were evacuated, and got to go home, but i didn't get home till 6, and being at school at 8:30!! crazy but no one was hurt, and they ended up not finding the guys who were in the school.
but i am just so thankful that no one was hurt. But i am still in shock, i can't believe that happened to us, it still hasn't hit yet!While all of this was happening, i was stuck in that room with no communication, and no idea what was happening, we were in complete darkness, we had no idea why we were in lock down, or how long we were going to be there or what was going on, so that was pretty scary.
The worst part was not knowing, thats what broke us down, and caused so much stress, every other person in the city knew what was going on except us! And that scares me.
But no one was hurt, we're all just shaken up, and glad that we were not alone in this, we experienced this as one, as an entire school, and i'm glad that we can all support each-other.

It was the really heavy sticky stuff, so really bad to drive in and really easy to get stuck in! I worked yesterday doing brunch, and then called mom to come pick me up, well she got stuck in the alley, and Kristen and Erinn Had to push her out, and then she came to heritage Park and the city bus was vertical across the road, so she couldn't get by, and then she got stuck on a really small hill, and we had to get the worker men to push her out. It was very nice of them, and we got out after some work!
but my golly it was a huge mess! i was off early and i had some time to check out the new shops at heritage park, an antique store, which is my new favorite store! they have so many great things there, so many old albums and list could go on and on so i won;t get into that. but i picked up a couple gifts, and an old cigar box for me! i will re-decorate i think and put a mini album inside!
Here's some pictures of the snow!

The thing that i was to do today was drink Apple cider/ hot chocolate! that was easy, since i had Cran-apple cider, it is the best stuff you will ever have! EVER! makes me happy just thinking about it, sadly though it is disappearing fast, and i don't know where to get it again! too sad :(
December came too fast for me, i am already behind in school, and i have to do at least 30 units this month, which is only two weeks, it still hasn't started off great, and i am almost failing physics! if you don't know what units are, don't worry about it, if you didn't go to my school, then you probably wouldn't understand, which is okay!
anyway, i have lots of work to do!

Had a great day at school today! not. our school went into a Mock lock down. A couple of weeks ago a school pretty close to mine went into lock down, after a man came in completely naked. But it is actually pretty scary to think that something like that or even worse could happen to us at my school. My biggest fear, is of a school shooting! It has been since elementary, when i first knew what high school was. Luckily though i go to a very, VERY safe school. Ours is much, much smaller then the average high school, and the way our school is run, and the teaching is so different, that everyone is so much more friendly, and nice. it really makes you appreciate what you've got!

I would like to thank all the Canadian soldiers that have risked their life in battle, for the freedom of our country, and the safety of our people. Most of all i would like to offer comfort to all the families affected by the war, and all the previous wars. My heart especially goes out to the family of Corporal Nathan Hornburg, who was killed last year. He was a graduate of the same high school as me. Hid family came to our Remembrance day celebration last year, just a month after their son was killed. I cannot thank you enough for speaking to us,and sharing your story.
I will never Forget.
I am also posting pictures of some Christmas tags that i made a little while ago. I will either be using them on my presents or selling them at my Church's Craft sale NEXT year. I just took a cream piece of paper, lightly stamped a snowflake on, used my STUDIO G alphabet stamps, and tied some ribbon. Didn't take very long at all!
About those STUDIO G stamps. I popped into Michael's today with my mom, expecting to only get some paper that was on sale, and possibly use the 50% off coupon, and to my surprise they had the alphabet stamps!!! i was beyond excited. I picked up one set a couple months ago, like summer time, loved them once i used them, went back to get more, and they didn't have any. i was so disappointed. I have been looking for them ever since, and finally found them!! That seriously made my day! :D

So in my last post i was stressed out because i couldn't find the Cord that charges my camera, well i FOUND IT!! and you'll never guess where it was.
Behind the SUGAR jar! i couldn't believe it! but all is well, camera's charged, and ready to go for Ali Edwards "A week in the life" project. Already started, and have a few pictures going. i will upload the ones for today, later on or tomorrow morning, along with the journaling i will be putting up.
