It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I’m back from Thanksgiving and it was beautiful!

Campus closed early on Tuesday in preparation for the so-called “Blizzard of the Decade”. Dumples, Smalls (a friend from our home ward), and I decided to try to beat the storm by leaving as early as possible. The roads were (almost) perfectly clear. We later learned that the storm never did make its way to Provo so all the hullabaloo was for naught.

Breakdown of the Break:

Wednesday was full of sleep, family, pie baking, and Marty McFly.

Thursday was full of food, food, sleep, games, and food. And I was full of food. I’ve missed Thanksgiving food, since I dined on borscht last year.

Friday was full of shopping, sleep, and Christmas movies. I bought a 6 ft Christmas tree that ended up staying in Colorado because there was not enough room in the car to bring it back. Other Black Friday finds: Christmas presents for half of my family, window clings for the office, and a $9 vacuum (since management has still not gotten around to repairing ours in the 11 months I have lived there).

Saturday was full of crafts, Christmas decorating, and clothing mending.

We planned on seeing Tangled, which I have heard was fantastic, but we never got around to it. There’s always Christmas break! Only 3 more weeks!

What did Thanksgiving break bring your way? Did the snow halt your adventures? Is your family as fun as mine (Answer: No)?
