Photo booth blast from tha past

 I have been seeing a lot of posts lately that have made me think.
One of which you can find here
This particular post got me thinking about all of the photo booth pics I've taken over the years.
Also about how it would be neat to take a photo every day, 
and then see how you've changed over a year.
I know that I will probably fail at this, but I have so many photo booth pics already!
 Then I was reading this post and  decided to do a memory lane, photo booth addition.
I really wish I was at my parents house to get the ones I took circa 2001-2007.
Those would be a blast to see I'm sure! 
Maybe next time I'm over there.
Any who.
I have photo booth pictures starting from 2009 on my laptop so here goes:
OH also, this is when I first started growing out my hair. 
(be ware, I make a lot of ugly faces)
 Hey look tiny six week old Oscar!
 Remember when I used to be obsessed with make up?? Also remember how I am allergic to my fav. eyeshadow now:( Haven't tried to use it in over a year, maybe I will be able to again.. HMMMM.
 This face is in many photos, mainly just making fun of all the kissy duck faced girls on the Internet these days.
 Oscar was so good at taking emo shots with me. I shouldn't have let my smile slip.

These are making me want to chop my hair.

 Me and Osc. used to have so many photo sesh's.

 That one time, when I was obsessed with my camelback water bottle.
 This was at the first apartment Aaron and I lived at.

 This is from the night we got engaged.

 Road trippin with my sister to Arizona

 That one time, when my aunt died. P.S. luvin me all this acne.
 From my honeymoon
 In the car driving to Canada for my grandpa's funeral

Just woke up from a nap, whateve's I don't care;)
Seriously though next time I am at my parents I am going to blog about those photo booth days.
Also, I am starting to go back to weight watchers meetings with my mom starting Monday.
So. I will blog my resolutions then.

72 hours

As many of you already know my Grandmother passed away last week.
She died on Tuesday January Third, just 3 days shy of her 93rd birthday.
Although she was old and had been suffering for many years,
It has been very hard.
I miss her very much.
On Friday morning at 3 am my family packed up and drove to Canada for the funeral service.
It was nice to see so many of my aunts/uncles/and cousins there. 
(from both sides of my family)
Here are some photos of our short trip up and back. 
 4 am in the car
Sammie is so funny, she always sleeps on her back. 
 We are so lucky that our dogs travel so well in the car. Hardly heard a peep from these two.

Frozen over Duck Lake
Photos of scenery on the drive.
 We celebrated my Grandmothers birthday on Friday.
Funeral Attire.
Trying to put myself together before going into the viewing.
Some of the funeral procession.                                                                
It was bitter cold at the burial site, and the wind was unforgiving.
I hope there was a joyous reunion when my Grandmother got to heaven.
My Uncle who died at age 13 months, their first born. 

I miss you Grandma I hope you are so happy and free from pain.
 Flowers from the casket.
 The view from the cemetery

So glad they can be together again<3

The house my Grandmother was born in.
Sunset over the country.
For some reason this photo wont upload upright! So annoying. Seriously my eyes feel bruised from all of the crying i've done. 
Ticked I bought the BAKED ones. SO LAME.

This was the view the morning we left to come home. 
It was peaceful and almost felt as though it was my grandmothers way of waving goodbye.
She always did that when we left Canada.
I miss that.
These are so addicting. Good thing I live in the states!
One tuckered out pup.
I hope you all had a great weekend!!
