Thank you for all of the Christmas wishes <3 Yesterday I went to Downtown LA with my friends again. We ate a German Sausage place that I love to go to called Wurstküche. They have a wide variety of beer and sausages to choose from and the setting is very nice~ It is located in the Art's District of LA, right next to Little Tokyo....kind of ghetto looking area hahaha....but it doesn't matter~

Then afterward...we drove around a lot....finally ended up driving to the Americana in Glendale....and we ate cupcakes at Crumbs.

My cupcake was called the Artie Lange....tasted really good but the frosting became too sweet for me to handle.

RANDOMNESS: Two photos my sister took of me with her phone~

My baby cousin Jacob and I. I don't know what to call him....he is my 1st cousin's cousin....nephew/cousin...hahahaha I don't know.


The icing was had peppermint in it! YUM <3

Loner Santa

Merry Christmas everyone!! I went to my cousin's house last night and met up with the rest of my relatives. I am still sick and I was not feeling good at all....I couldn't speak at all which wasn't too made fun of a little but then everyone forgot hahaha. Right after I ate, I sat down on the couch and fell asleep. My mom or dad put their jacket on me so I wouldn't get cold....I was knocked out for three hours while everyone around me was dancing and laughing. I woke up at around eleven and people were still dancing....I had a really bad headache so my cousin gave me some medicine and tea. I just sat there on the couch feeling really weird..watching everyone. Eventually I got up and started walking cousin gave me some gingerbread cookies and then I played some Toy Story game on the Wii with my little cousin....I kept whispering to him and he thought I was crazy.....ahhhhh.

Today I am feeling slightly voice is still gone...When I try to talk it hurts, so I just whisper. Tonight we are going to my first cousin's house from my dad's side. I'm excited~

I haven't received any gifts yet......Armenians do their gift giving on New Years....So I have nothing to share! I hope you all got wonderful gifts! ^__________________________^ <3<3<3

Bye bye for now <3

God Jul & Gott Nytt År

I have been sick for a week now. I have gotten a lot better though~ My voice is completely gone, however. My mom is funny cause she talks a lot and I am not very talkative...and she keeps trying to talk to me but I don't respond (I have a reason now!!)...but she still keeps talking. I have been drinking a lot of tea...lots and lots of tea. Whenever I am sick I make tea with dried lemons and Nabat (sugar crystals) that are made with safran. It tastes good and helps my throat~

Yesterday I went to Little Tokyo with my friends. I had a lot of fun despite being sick~ We wanted to eat a German sausage place that I love but it was closed for Christmas (duhhh) so we ate some Japanese food instead and then walked around a lot. We bought lots of candy and drinks from a super market and sat outside and ate~

I am now at home...waiting for everyone to get out of the bathroom so I can get ready for tonight....we are going to my cousin's house for Christmas. I thought we were supposed to go tomorrow...but apparently not!

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. Thank you for everything <3 <3 <3
