Week 12

My grandma Judy, my dad's mom, is one of my favorite people. I've learned a lot from having her as my grandmother. My grandma Judy is an excellent cook. There is nothing better than going to her house because every single time she always has some kind of homemade cookie or pie made. She's a really good at making scrapbooks as well. She always comes to all of her grandchildren's events and takes pictures. She makes a scrapbook of everything important that happened with all of us for every year. My grandma Judy is also very challenged at working modern technology. She has a flip phone for her cell phone and she uses Facebook on her computer. I love getting emails from her because they are always almost comical. She doesn't know how to type very well so it is always amusing trying to read them.

Week 11

My uncle Steve is the youngest of my dad's siblings. My dad and Steve are a lot like my sister and I in the way that they do not even look related. Steve is over six feet tall and pale and blonde headed.
My dad is fairly short and tan and has brown hair. Steve is the goofy sibling of the three. My dad and his sister Lauri are very serious and mature. Steve worked as a state cop for server all years. Recently he got promoted and he now works in Champaign dealing with police evidence and such. My dad and Lauri always picked on Steve as a child because he was the youngest. They tell stories a lot about how they used to chase him with a Pink Panther doll because it scared him.

Week 10

My dad Kevin is next. Even though I hate to admit it sometimes, he's one of my favorite people. I am so much like him sometimes it's freaky. We are both very stubborn and very unemotional. My family has always said that I look like my mother and act like my father. My dad is extremely book smart as well. He went to Purdue and got his bachelor's degree in civil engineering. He was going to obtain his master's degree but my mom got pregnant with me so he never did. Now my dad works at IDOT. I remember going to "bring your daughter to work day" as a kid every year. It was always boring but I loved missing school and getting to hang out with

Week 9

Now that I have written about all of the Trapp cousins in my generation, I am going to write a little bit about each of my father's siblings. I'm going to start with my aunt Lauri because she is the oldest of the three. Lauri has three children, Shawn, Jessica, and Aaron. She went to the University of Illinois and got her degree to become an account. She's extremely intelligent, especially at math. Lauri married Trent Marshall who works at a law firm in Mt. Vernon where their family lives. I am pretty close with my aunt Lauri. We email back and forth often because I don't get to see them very much. Lauri has a big heart and is very quiet and conservative. She's a really cool aunt. I'm lucky to have her.
