Turkey Day Weekend!

Happy late Thanksgiving to all, and may we be grateful for all that we have each and every day! This break was full of craziness... my cousins came over from California and Idaho, and we had a blast!

During the gingerbread house
construction, most of the "houses"
turned out to be ruins of Candyland,
as my cousin Ethan put it...mine
was the only one standing!

My cousin Brayton and I went
on our first family temple trip
together to the Portland Oregon
temple to do baptisms. It was so special!

 The food at Thankgiving was delicious beyond comparison...
this is definitely one of my favorite
times of year...

A great invention was discovered in my household over this break...a little game called hide-and-seek-in-the-dark. You turn off all of the lights, and when the seeker finds you, they play some low, spooky notes on the piano. The best thing about it is that you can hide in plain sight and nobody will see you!

I watched the Fiddler on the Roof movie this weekend and I loved it! It's very...bitter-sweet: so happy and so sad.

Over all, my Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful!!! :)

Is that...SNOW?!

Last night, Brooke and I went and saw the Fiddler on the Roof play (which was SO cute, by the way). It was so cold outside after the show, that we thought it might snow. She told me about how she wore her pajamas inside-out and she was snowed in the next day. I've been trying this for a few days now...and it finally worked!!! :) It was only a little sprinkle, but it's something.

Brooke, a few other kids at school, and I started a school newspaper, called The Senior Sentinel, and so far it's a big hit! At first when we made 75 copies we thought we'd completely over-shot the amount that we'd need...but we sold them all! We made $18.30, and all the money went to the school. Hooray for the Sentinel! :)

P.S. We now have a blog for the paper so that you can look at the issues online!

It's amazing what you can do when you don't have a computer...

Our computer had to be taken in to get fixed, so I have not been blogging for a while now. (Well, it's been a while to me.) I have a major update to do!


I did lots of painting this week. I created two masterpieces, both of which I am very pleased with. The first was for a YW value project, and the other was just for fun.


2. Harry Potter-ed out.

Nathan finished the Harry Potter books two and three, so we thought we'd watch the movies as a reward for finishing them. I haven't seen the movies for so long, so it was fun to watch them late at night with my family.

Only, Lauren decided she like them so much, we watched it four more times throughout the rest of the week. I was very Harry Potter-ed out.


3. YW in Excellence

Young Women in Excellence is when our ward's Young Women group gets together and displays what value projects they've done and talents they've developed. It was so special to see that there are other people with my same standards! 

4. NaNoWriMo!

I officially started my National Novel Writing Month story! I only have about 800 words so far, but it's a good start! :) Is anyone else taking on NaNoWriMo? How is it going for you?

That's all I have for right now.... happy blogging! :)
