Christmas with the cousins

Keegan had so much fun playing with his cousins this Christmas. They all played so well together that we were all wondering when there was going to be a blowout - and it never happened! They played pretty much all day everyday and were exhausted every night. Keegan was really sad to see it come to an end. He's already looking forward to Mexico this summer when everyone gets together again!

Thad's Wedding

The week leading up to my trip to Florida was seriously one of the most hectic of my life! I had all my school finals, was deathly ill (I may be exaggerating a bit, but it really did feel that way!) and I had to get Christmas ready before I left on the 16th. Somehow everything got done and I was headed to Orlando for my big brother Thad's wedding. The first night there, I stayed up talking all night with my sister Kendall and that pretty much set a precedent for the rest of my time in Orlando. My older sister, Shannon, came down from New Hampshire and my little bro, Ethan made the trip from D.C. All eight Dickmans were there except for my older brother, Frederick, whom we all missed terribly!! My grandparents and Aunt Joanne and Uncle Frederick came, too. It was so much fun being together again. I also had a chance to visit with some high school friends that I hadn't seen since graduation. By the time I left, I was still sick and totally exhausted but completely happy! Congrats to Thad and Bonnie - you're perfect for each other :)

*I know it's crazy that I don't have any pics of the happy couple, but as soon as I get some, I'll post them.

Go VS!!!!!

My friend Kellye and I decided to put together a volleyball team to play at UNM this semester and we ended up having enough girls for two teams! It was so much fun playing together every Saturday and getting in some good girl time. We even won quite a bit, which makes it even more fun :) Thanks to everyone who played - I can't wait for next season (although I'm sure my ankles are happy for the break)!!
