Christmas Eve!!!

A couple of years ago Nana started a tradition o fgoing to a nail salon on Christmas Eve. This year, Amanda and I did everyone else's nails. Then we went and got our nails done after that. We went to Aura Nails. It was a really nice place. From now on, i am going to try to take a picture of myself every morning so over the days, weeks, months and years I can see how my style, hair and ect. has changed. this is one of those things that I have always wanted to do, but never really stuck with it. I am going to try really hard(:

Best Monday

Today started out not that great; forgeting to do any homework during the weekend, and not having enough sleep. When I got to school, I found out that there was an assembally(: That means every class is shortened. Then during p.e., we went to the spin room like wwe do every Monday. I loving going into the spin room because it is real exercise. I had to give a speech in health on Ebola. I was super nervous, but when I got up there i was actually having fun. Now I love giving speeches. Mr. Child was excited to hear my speech, and i got 50/50. This was the first time i had ever really done good on a speech. 6,6,5,5.
Then, gymnastics was the first part. We went to bars, and Bethany told me she wanted me to do high bar kips, I did one with her spot. I told Abby I was going to make it on the first day to make her mad. Then after a few attempts on my own I finally made it on my own! Then I told myself i wasnt going to leave until I made my squat on. I had all of my skills. I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN I MADE MY WHOLE ROUTINE WITHOUT A FALL!!!

State Catch Up

Gymnastics State was on Saturday. I didn't have any new scores, but it was a good meet for me. I got 3rd on beam with a 9.575, and 6th all around with a 37.200. Wasn't the best, but I am sad the season is over. Last competition 4!!!

Half Day

I love half days at school! Each class is only 1/2 long. I came home and made egg nog cupcakes. They taste good, but not so pretty.

Eggnog Cupcakes with Eggnog Buttercream

(Yield:  16-18 cupcakes and about 2 c buttercream)

Eggnog Cupcakes:
3 large eggs
1 1/4 c white sugar
1/2 c canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 c eggnog
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 tsp fresh grated nutmeg, plus additional for garnish if desired
Cooking spray

Muffin tray
Paper muffin liners (if using)

Eggnog Buttercream:
1 stick (1/4 lb) salted butter
1 lb powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
About 6 TB eggnog (more or less to achieve your desired consistency)

For the cupcakes:  Preheat the oven to 350F.  Beat together the egg, sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggnog until thoroughly mixed.  In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.  Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring until just combined (there will still be a few lumps; be careful not to over-mix, or the cupcakes won’t be fluffy and light).  Line the muffin tray with paper liners and very lightly spray the inside of each paper liner with cooking spray.  Bake for 18-22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool completely before frosting; once frosted, garnish with a little sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.

For the buttercream:  Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla.  While still mixing, add the eggnog 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
