other exciting/fun/sleep-depriving things i did:
- watched Star Wars, Miracle on 34th Street, and Lion King
- played Kinnect with Josh, Steve and Nate
- got a hair cut
- started reading "Shepherds Why This Jubilee?" by Elder Holland
- wrote almost all of my huge research paper
- went on an awesome date to Music and the Spoken Word
- made my family's Christmas card
- slept on the couch 4 nights (that didn't deprive me of sleep- it was fun)
- decorated our house for christmas
- made some homemade decorations of my own

despite our family being very small compared to years past, this Thanksgiving Break was awesome! It was the perfect mix of fun and work. I am so thankful for my family! But I am also thankful to be back at school. . .  so I can finish up these last 3 weeks and get to a real break! Here's to no school!
