Hey y’all! So today I’m going to be writing about what I’ve been doing with my winter break so far!

The first day of break (technically) was Wednesday, we only had a half day. So Ryann, Emily, Lauren, and I came back to my house to make lunch and open presents! We watched some movies, drank hot chocolate,and just had tons of fun!

I got some bubbles from our Spanish classes’ White Elephant gift exchange, so we played with those outside.

I love getting gifts from people, not because of the gift, but because I can see how much they know and love me. And I love to get them gifts, because I love making them happy!

Then I got Ryann a Sherlock Holmes scented candle, which turned out to smell AMAZING. And I also got her a snow windshield cover for her car, so she doesn’t have to scrape it off every morning.

Then Ryann got me a super soft blanket with football plays and footballs on it and it has barely left my side since then. She also got me this really cool kit thing that came with an actual oyster that I got to rip open to find a its guts (well and a pearl) but the guts were pretty cool. The pearl was white which stands for wisdom, and like I didn’t even have to say it, even nature knows how smart I am.

 Then Lauren actually made me something- it’s one of those string art things, in the shape of the leaf on a Quaking Aspen tree. But get this- she drove like downtown to find the wood from an Aspen tree.

Then on Thursday, the only thing that I really did was go to the temple for baptisms of the dead! If you want to know what that is, just leave a comment below and I’ll happily explain 🙂  I had a lot of fun, and it was really nice to feel the spirit in that way before Christmas.

And then today was my Uncle Richie’s birthday so we threw a party for him at ze church. But my cousins got a new puppy for Christmas named Thor and he’s the cutest thing ever. I also got to see the baby again finally, and she has grown up so much. She LOVES to jabber on and on (wonder where she got that from…) When I carried her to the car as per usual she was screaming and sobbing because she wanted “Momma to take her home” aka me, not her actual mother. She kept telling me I was going the wrong way because she knows what our car looks like, and needless to say my heart is broken, and I want to see my baby asap.
