Christmas and stuff...



So i think it was the 11th or something we had the Brinkerhoff Christmas party. (my mom's family) It was really fun i saw my cousins and aunt from Idaho. We get along really well and almost every time they come we always look at each other and say "sleepover? yeah!!" then we run to ask if we can. well it didn't happen this time oh well. Oh yeah and the GIANT CANDY CANE yes i brought it!!!! Everyone was so amazed and my cousin asked me if it was a real candy cane...he wasn't there when we bought it. So my cousin and i just laughed and said "YES of course" well yeah i got pictures of me and my cousin together with the GIANT CANDY CANE!!!! Did i mention the pictures were taken just hours before the GIANT CANDY CANE broke......?? well it's true it broke....  let's just say Colman had ti do with this TRAGIC accident Yes it was TRAGIC! I was SO sad!!! Later that night i told Kindra that we were going to get another one cuz she was so sad it broke too even tho she wasn't there when we bought it.....i haven't told Jaicee that it broke....

A week later was the Wilcox family Christmas party. Also that weekend we went to Salt Lake my dad had been working late in Salt Lake every night late so on Saturday night we decided to go up to SLC  and stay in a hotel so he didnt have to come home really late then go back really early the next day. He had been filming the Christmas concert and Sunday morning was Music And The Spoken Word. Saturday night we met Erin and Nic at Thanksgiving Point they wanted to take Norah to see the deer and they invited us. After that we made our way up  to SLC. We got there about 8:00 and checked in the hotel and went and looked at the lights around Temple Square, then we went back to the hotel and my dad came about a half hour later. We watched a movie and got snacks and had a little party there in our hotel room. About 11 we all went to bed i think i didn't sleep till 12 and woke up almost every hour.... yeah i didn't sleep well.. I woke up the next morning at like 8:00 We were going to go to the Music And Spoken Word but we didn't know we had to get tickets (this year was the first year you had to have tickets) so we stayed in the comfy hotel room and watched it. Then i took a nap....an awful one might i add... i was so tired though! My dad finished working and we met him at Little America, if you don't know what that is it's a really fancy hotel (my brother used to work there a long time ago) and they have a Buffet every Sunday morning that anyone can go to. it's a great buffet! Really expensive though. After the amazing brunch we had it was 3 hours before the party was supposed to start, we decided just to go to my aunt's house when we got there they were still at church so we waited and soon they got home. Anyways the party was fun. My aunt made my favorite bean salad for me. I talked to my brother in law and my cousin wasn't there and she told me she could come but it ended up she couldn't. I really missed her! But, i still had a great time with all my other cousins and  my uncles are the best! so it was fun! I know this is a long post so i will wrap it up, i just haven''t blogged for awhile lots has been going on so i wanted to write about it.
For Christmas, i got: A PHONE!!!! FINALLY YAY!! Clothes, headphones, shoes, money and candy. It was great!!! Here are a few pics iv'e taken on my phone

Nic took this Christmas morning First pic taken on my phone

JJ is a Christmas dog

Jj got a bed, i was really scared he wouldn't like it because he is used to sleeping with me...but i got tired of it. I think he actually likes it!

Christmas night he was so tuckered, he had been playing with moxie and sup all day

Here's the broken candy cane some of the pieces

There's whats left of it that didn't break...more then half broke into pieces.... :(

GIANT CANY CANE!!!!!!!!

So me and my crazy cousin Jaicee always have sooo much fun together! We are sooo crazy and as silly as can be when we are together! A week ago i believe...we went out to lunch with my grandma for her birthday! (on thanksgiving) Jaicee and i always talk about the weirdest things! A few weeks before i was telling her how i was sick and sounded like a hissing, dying cat! (i seriously did!) anyways we were talking about it all day, so at the lunch i brought it up and she just laughed sooo hard! Then she decided i look like a cat.....do i? hmm anyways we argued over that for awhile and then i finally gave in and said fine! i look like a cat! I don't even remember what we decided what animal she looks like..... a tiger? hmm yeah that probably was it... ANYWAYS we aren't even to the good part! After we ate my grandma had been wanting to go to a store she saw so we all went to this really cool store i don't even remember what it was called.... It was like a home decor store but it also had cool gadgets and cool stuff like that! GUESS WHAT WE FOUND!!!!  A GIANT 2 POUND CANDY CANE!!!!!! We just laughed and laughed and LAUGHED! I kept saying "oh my gosh!!!! i'm going to get it!!!!!!" so after begging my mom and convincing her that i would pay for it...i got it!! it was $10 but i just had to have it! it was just so funny and ridiculous! you know when you se something so ridiculous at the store you just have to get it? well yeah that's how i felt with this giant candy cane! Jaicee and i just kept making jokes about it and how "it would take me 7 years to eat it" it just cracked me up so i had to get it! So i bought it and left....when i got in the car i was all excited to tell Jaicee so i texted her right away and said "jaicee !!!!!!!! i got that HUGE candy cane!" I got a text back "who is this?" i responded "Alexi" got a text back "i think you have the wrong number" i was like......ahhh "who is this?" and this mystery guy responded......"Jose"  i got all nervous and checked the number and at first i thought it was just Jaicee playing a trick on me then i took a closer look at the number and it was WRONG! So i changed it and texted Jaicee and i said "jaicee! i got that HUGE candy cane!!!" i got a response back.."oh my gosh!!!!!! that's so funny!" there we go it was my cousin!! So i told her how i had her number wrong in my moms phone and i texted some guy named Jose......oh and did she think that was SO FUNNY!!! I was texting her and she didn't respond for awhile then i got a response "sorry i'm still laughing! That is so funny!" I'm sure when i see her in a few weeks she will bring that up and we will laugh our heads off!!!!! Anyways that's my experience with texting mystery people.......kinda creepy..... Jaicee is the best cousin anyone could ever ask for! she is the BEST!!(these are from when i got home that night so Jaicee isn't in any, I'm planning on bringing it to our family Christmas party so we'll get some pictures of both of us then!)
I had a HUGE smile on my face i thought it was so hilarious!


$9.99 HUGE CANDY CANE!!

Apple Days (day 1)





Today was the first day of our 2 day annual apple juice making party. It was kinda boring today not many people came...(which is unusual) towards the end of the day there were more people here but it wasn't crazy like most years. Tomorrow most of our family is coming. My sister and brother in - law and niece came today that was lots of fun! My friend Dave and i kinda goofed off since there wasn't much to do. throwing rotten apples at people...and other things was fun we discovered, Just showing my sister a rotten apple was fun cause she freaked out and i thought it was soooo funny...i even got pushed and shoved around for it but i just thought it was hilarious and kept doing it.... Later my friends Adam and David came that was fun! Then, it got crazy my friends Ethan and Hannah came. We kinda all went crazy.  So yes it was a fun day but i was kinda shocked that not very many people came today. After we finished up for the night, Adam and David stayed for a while and we played Super Smash Bros Brawl. It was a good day overall! i will post more about tomorrow cause i'm sure it'll be AWESOME!!!!!!!! 
Here are a few pictures and videos from day 1 of apple days!!

Snowmobile YouTube awesomeness!

It's almost winter i've been thinking about going snowmobiling...a few years ago we went snowmobiling for a family reunion, it was one of the best days i have ever had. I wish, and dream about snowmobiling and hope someday to get a snowmobile....judging by the videos i show my parent's i don't think they want to get me a snowmobile.........i like the crash competition videos, they are so intense after every crash i say "whoa!" and watch in aw it all looks so fun. Winter comes and i ask my mom if we can tell my grandma to rent a snowmobile again for another awesome family reunion! I can just imagine how much fun i would have if we did it again!

A few of the videos i've been watching...

Camille oh Camille GUESS WHAT!!!! IT'S YOU'RE BIRTHDAY!!

CAMILLE HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! :D
I haven't known Camille very long but let me tell you a story.
I love Camille she is such a good friend!
The day i met Camille, December 20th.... 2009...or so.... which ever day was Colman's 16th birthday party. Well ok the date doesn't matter really..... the important part was that was the day i met Camille! :) I had met Maren and Stephanie a few months before i met Camille. Maren and i always chat on G-mail and one day completely random outta no where she says, "Camille says hi!" I responded kinda mean.... I said "who the heck is Camile?" (Sorry Camille) Maren said.... "Camille is my sister..." Oh.... well hi Camille!" haha i felt kinda awkward.... "sorry" Maren said "oh it's ok" and i awkwardly changed the subject. Well the day of Colman's party came and Maren, Stephanie and CAMILLE came! As always i was shy.... Maren always tells me i'm shy.... (i know i am) but i try to deny it..... Well Colman invited a bunch of boys to play video games.... and.... Maren, Stephanie, and Camille. I begged Colman to be "included" in his party so i could talk to Maren and Stephanie and Camille of course but at the time i asked to be involved i didn't know Camille was coming. So he said "fine! just don't ruin it!" (First of all i only make things better!) My response was "Ok i won't! I just want to talk to Maren and Stephanie!" It worked out great i talked to Maren, Stephanie and Camille while the boys played video games. (Well i didn't really talk.....i listened to Camille, Maren and Stephanie talk) Wow my life is complete! Listening to those three talk is THE FUNNIEST THING EVERR!!! I'm pretty sure they all thought i was crazy i laughed at everything! Camille+Stephanie+Maren=FUNNY!!!!!!! Camille and i kinda made fun of Stephanie.... that was hilarious! Anyways the night went on it got funnier and FUNNIER! :) Then i went with my mom to take them home (just for the entertainment) I got home that night and requested Camille on Facebook. and she accepted the next day! :) We just stated chatting a lot as if we were best friends! I'd say we've become pretty good friends throughout the past year! :) ANYWAYS! THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS CAMILLE IS AWESOME!!!!! :) It's been not quite a year sense we met but it's been a good almost year knowing you Camille! You're a great friend! We both have good friend making skills because we became friends fast! I love you!!!
That's my story about Camille and how we met.
Some of my favorite things about Camille are:
1. She is pretty
2. She is so KIND!
3 She is FUNNY!
4. She is a great friend
5. She's good/fast at making friend (people like that are the BEST! Myself included)
6. She has a great laugh
7. She has a great sense of humor
8. she likes Led Zepplin...haha (I think there was a week and that was all we talked about)
Well that's all :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY~Camille!!!!!! I hope you have the best day EVERR!!! I love you!!! <3
:) You're the best!!!
(Look how pretty she is)

This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PICTURE OF CAMILLE! <3

This is my FAVORITE PICTURE EVERRR!

Bass hunter.... Aya.. knows me so well!

A list of bass hunter songs Aya has shared with me! :D

I Can Walk On Water

I Miss You

Now You're Gone

Some i found....

Why.. 

  Don't Walk Away

Day and Night


I love bass hunter!
Thanks to a great friend Aya! :)

Well.. it's for Aya...

Well.... "Now you're gone i realize my love for you was strong" Is this the way it's meant to be? Only dreamin' you're missing me...." There's an empty place in my heart... it won't alarm me it'll only break apart it won't heal, it never fades away I'll be thinkin' 'bout  you every day".  :)
I am always thinking about you i miss you more then i can put into words..... I listened to "I miss you" the other day it made me cry...

Aya is a great friend, when she told me she was moving it broke my heart. I don't know how it happened but we just became goooood friends really fast! Near the last day of my 7th grade year she told me she was moving to Mississippi....... i was shocked... so now 3 years later she's in Mississippi.... hates it there and wants to be here with me. I wish she was here too. We get in fights sometimes but we are still great friends! :) Even though we just text and don't talk on the phone much or see each other we still create great memories through text!
One of my most favorite things most recently that we were talking about was conference weekend we had a great conversation and even made up a game. Another thing that will always be one of my favorite things, opne night awhile we were texting and i said "i'm going to read the scriptures and then go to bed" then she said "Oh! i need to do that too! If you find a scripture you really like send it to me!" so i found one and i sent it to Aya... and then she sent me a scripture and we did that for about an hour. Now we do our own little scripture study every night. :) We haven't done it in awhile actually.... We have a bunch of silly little things we do thru text but it really creates great memories! 
Here are two songs i've been listening to "Now you're gone" and "I miss you" Aya sent me "I miss you" awhile ago both of us agree that "I want to tell you straight from my heart i miss you....." is the best line in the song. "Now you're gone" is a song i heard along time ago and didn't know what it was called and i searched Bass hunter songs and found it! 
"Now you're gone"
This is a song for a girl to a boy/boy to a girl. but now it's from Aya to me :) cuz we are best friends!
"I missyou..."

Conference weekend Aya and Alexi

So this weekend was General conference. I woke up early Saturday morning not really because of conference just for the heck of it. I moped around the house being lazy then i decided to shower at 9:30 so i showered and thinking i was getting out of conference i wasn't.... i got done showering and texted Aya and she said i should "get watching!" so i did. We were texting talking about conference and every few speakers she'd ask "who is this? i didn't see the name." So i'd tell her who it was and she'd say "THANKS i needed to know i love this talk!" My response "no problem!" I wass on top of it! Awhile later i didn't see the name so i asked "wait who is this?" then for awhile she told me the names of every speaker... i didn't like that i said "aya! no! let me tell you i feel so cool when you ask me who is speaking" "oh sorry :)" so i felt better. Then i said "fine let's make it into a game!!" to see who can text the name of the speaker first so we did. This was at the end of the second session yesterday that we started it. Only two talks left in the session and guess WHO got the 2 points ME!!!!!! I texted her at 7:30 and she said "lets play the game tomorrow!" OK!" so i posted on my status "Aya ur going down!!!!!" and she commented on it telling me ohh no i'm so gonna win! and all this crazy stuff.... and like me i said "oh psh! you ain't gonna win! ur going down!" so she said how bout whoever wakes up first tomorrow gets 2 points!!!! ok..... so i told her she's gonna lose! cuz i woke up at 6 that morning! She was like... "oh crap! i woke up at 10!" haha so i was sure i was gonna win. So Aya didn't have any points so i said ok here i love you have a point she was really happy! So we went to sleep....guess what time i woke up....3..... yeah... i'm not sure why so i went back to bed at 4 then woke up at 6 and texted her....... "oh Aya guess who's awake before you!!" (she had the advantage cuz it's an hour later in Mississippi she still wasn't awake tho. It was 8 there when she texted me back "DANG YOU BEAT ME!!!" hahahahaha yessss i did!!!! She went on about how mad she was..that she lost but at the same she was so happy i won!   Now i love her because she is awesome and is happy when i beat her at things just because she loves when i'm happy it makes her happy. Same with me when she is happy it makes me happy. So the game begun!!!!!!!!! 15min before it started she sent me a text every few minutes as a countdown before it BEGUN!!!!  It started and i was kicking her butt! I had 2 points from the day before so at the end of the first session this morning it was 10-5 i was 10 she was 5. The next session started i was on a roll but oh boy did she ruin my streak! (oh yeah we both got 2 points when the prophet spoke.. that's the only reason Aya got to 5) She got the first 2 speakers cuz they were announced... and i was still ahead but she was 3 points behind. It went on and towards the end we got in a fight deciding who got the point...... i gave it to her at that point it was 12-9 still 3 behind so i gave it to her but we argued for a good 5min "I GOT IT!!!!!!!!" NO !!!!!!!!! I DID!!!!!!!" NO!!!!!!" I GOT IT!!!!! Finally she said "haha Alexi your kist so competitive!!!!!!!!!!" haha i am! At the end it was 12 1/2 to 10 and then the prophet spoke so we got 2 more points each... then it was over i said "add 1 point to our scores cuz we are awesome!!!" THE FINAL SCORE WAS: 15 1/2 to 13  (we did half points but i gave Aya 2 half points so she didn't end up with a half number just a solid 13) "GOOOOOOOOD JOB!!!!!!!! goooood! try Aya!!" We decided we were gooood conference listeners hahaha that's the end!!!!! of our AWESOME conference weekend game! It was intense!!!! AND AYA IS AWESOME!!!!!! <3 <3

In loving memory......

My grandpa passed away on Sunday... A year and half ago he broke his hip and was almost better and then fell again... and broke it again..... 2 surgeries and a year and a half later.... He is in a better place i know that FOR SURE! He isn't suffering anymore. Iv'e taken it pretty hard... but i know he will always be with me and will always watch over me. Someday i will see him again.

My grandpa was my favorite he always took me and my cousins to get ice cream whenever my grandma would say no we'd both say "ask grandpa!" so we'd run and ask him! His answer was always "Yeah that sounds like a good idea" and he'd tell my grandma and we'd get in the car and go get ice cream. There are two younger cousins below me on my moms side we always got what we want just needed to ask grandpa.

Every time he would come to our house he would give me and Colman a dollar.
He always took us to the creamery to get treats after school.
He had things he'd say.. i'm sure everyone's family has things they say.
I never really got why he said this... but he'd always say "when i was a little girl" or... "when i was the little girl and you were the grandpa do you remember that?" I'd just kinda hesitate and he'd ask again and i respond.... oh! yeah! then it started getting old as i got older then i just say uhuh ya i do..
and a lot of other crazy things that i don't remember he'd just say things to make  us laugh. Like... this one didn't ever make us laugh but he said it a lot/ "when you're bones all rattle and you can't hurt the cattle... what do you do? marry me an Indian skaw and live off her ma and pa"

People keep asking me how old i was in this.... i think i was 6.... or 7...

I love my grandpa!
I love my grandpa!!!! i'll miss him! He always loved all of his grand kids.

We also went boating this weekend! I love boating! No friends came this time it was just my dad and i. My mom was home babysitting Norah.
I had so much fun! my dad goes FAST! It kinda scared me at first then when he said we were heading back i was sad. i rode all the way back on the tube. when i got in the boat the sun had gone down and the sky was so pretty. I wish i took a picture! But sunset also means mosquitoes...... and LOTS OF THEM! i got HUGE BITES...on my arms, legs and face! Then to finish off the night we went to Del Taco!
