Christmas Time.....

I love Christmas time, it's my favorite time of the year! A couple of my favorite things about Christmas are the lights and the tree! I love how pretty everything is decorated & the Christmas lights that so many people put up.

I was going to get my own Christmas tree for my house in Laramie, but the last few weeks were too stressful & busy so I wasn't able to get one. I'll just have to wait until next year to get to decorate my own house & tree.

I love the tree that's in my house in Lovell, it's so beautiful. It's not a real tree, but I personally like those better because they aren't as messy and you get can get them to look exactly how you want them! Sadly, I wasn't able to help decorate it this year because of finals, but it was so fun to come home to Lovell from Laramie and see the tree up & decorated because it made it finally feel like Christmas to me.

I'm so excited for Christmas & Christmas Eve, and it has been so fun helping my parents get everything ready for Christmas. I actually like Christmas even more now that I'm helping get everything ready instead of just waiting for all of it to be done to enjoy it; getting ready is half the fun. I love the Christmas holidays and the spirit it brings!!

One More Down.....

Well I am officially done with another semester of college. I had 4 finals last week and I am so glad that the week is over! Now I am home in Lovell & able to relax from schoolwork for an entire month, and I couldn't be more excited. :)

During finals week I had 2 finals Tuesday, 1 Wednesday, and then my last was on Friday. Tuesday I had my Human Anatomy final at 8:00 and then my Calculus final at 3:30, Wednesday my Organic Chemistry final was at 7:30 in the morning, and Friday my Statistics final was at 1:15. Thursday morning I had to proctor the General Chemistry exam at 8:00 in the morning and then grade immediately afterward.

Wednesday afternoon I went to lunch with my cousin Laura Hatch, who has become one of my best friends down in Laramie. It was fun but sad at the same time because this was Laura's last semester in Laramie, she has to go to Green River to finish her student teaching. I'm so glad we got to be such good friends but now I'm very sad that she has to leave.

Later Wednesday night, Mikey and I went to watch Old Dogs at the theatre. It was pretty fun because we were they only two in the theatre & the movie was great! We also listened to Christmas music and tried to put together 1000 piece puzzle, NOT EASY! We only got the boarder done before I decided to call it quits.

Thursday night Kristen Scheffler came to my house so we could hang out before I came home for the break. It's crazy we haven't seen each other most of the semester except maybe once or twice because of our busy schedules! It was a lot of fun, eating pizza & popcorn, and watching a movie. It wasn't quite the luau we had last semester, but it was still a lot of fun! It was great seeing all my friends before I went home for Christmas break, and it was also nice to break up my studying!!

Friday after my exam I got all my stuff packed, cleaned my house, and went to bed. I woke up Saturday morning, went to breakfast with Mikey, and then headed to Lovell at 10:00. Now I'm home in Lovell and it has been fun already. My sisters & I went to watch New Moon (it was mine and Kara's 3rd time, Emi's 4th time, & Dani's 2nd time [except she slept through it the first time]!).

It's already been a nice break, and it's only beginning!
