Thanksgiving Weekend

This year Ross and I spent Thanksgiving at home in Logan. Just me and him. In the morning we just hung out for a while. After lunch we went for a drive. Ross really wanted to. We found a pretty cool old house in Wellsville, I think, not really sure where we were, very West though. Ross wanted to stop and look at it. It was a remake of some historical guys house. So naturally, we had to stop and look at it. Instances like this make Ross remind me very much of my sister Sarah.
After getting home from our drive we started working on our Thanksgiving dinner. I was going to make a chicken pot pie. Ross helped me out by cutting the chicken and cooking it. I made the filling and the crust. We added the chicken, filled the pie, and cooked it. And it was super duper delicious! Hooray! It was a very nice dinner. Ross also made some rolls. They came from one of those can things that explode open. I made jello, but I forgot about it in the fridge until that night. But here's a picture of Ross and our lovely meal!
On Friday Ross had work in the afternoon, but had no school in the morning. so what does he do? Plays nintendo. Hadn't even had breakfast and I got this lovely picture of him playing his 007 Golden Eye game with a sucker in his mouth. And he beat the game for the first time in his life! I'm so proud. :) He was very excited to beat a level he never had before, then it started showing the credits. He was a little upset to find out that that was all he had left of the game all this time. Poor guy. We also did a little bit of black Friday shopping. Got something nice for ourselves for Christmas. Woot!
Friday night when Ross got off work we headed down to Kaysville. Saturday my awesome cousin, Alison got married! It was a party. We went to the Bountiful Temple to see her and her new husband Kendall come out. She was so beautiful! It was fun. We also got to go to a luncheon for them and hear her Uncle Andy recite his famous 'Thong' poem. Hooray for cowboy poetry. And in the evening was the reception, where this picture was taken. Woot.
Now Ross and I are back in Logan. We set up our little Christmas Tree today. It is so little and cute. I really wanted to buy a bigger one, Ross wasn't so keen on that idea, so no new bigger tree for us this year. Maybe I can talk him into it next year. We shall see

So I just registered for institute classes next semester. :) I haven't gone to institute in a very long time, so I'm really excited. I'm taking two classes. One, Doctrines of the Gospel Part 2, I already took part one quite a while ago. That class is for just me while Ross is at another class for school. Then, when Ross is done, we are both going to a class. That one is Book of Mormon Part 2. Goes from Alma 30-Moroni 10. I'm really excited to take those classes!!!

A Reading Party

I have been reading a whole lot of books this year, and that has been wonderful! The past three days I have been reading like crazy. The final book of The Inheritance Cycle, by Christopher Paolini, has come out. I wanted to borrow it from my parents and read it. I read the first three books at the beginning of this year. When I was down in Kaysville this weekend I told Leslie I was taking the book, my mom already said it was ok. Leslie was not pleased. But she was still on the second book at the time. Still has one more to read. Party. I read half the book on Monday, which would be about 400 pages. Yes. Yesterday I only read about 100, but today I have to finish it so that my awesome sister Sarah can take it down to Leslie so she won't kill me for taking the book. It is really fantastic and I have loved reading it!
After I'm done with this one I'm going to read The Hunger Games. I've not heard anything bad about it, so it should be good. I'm hoping to read that and the two other books in the series before the year is done. Then I shall post a list of all the books I've read this year! What a party. I was originally shooting for 100 books in a year, and I'm not even close, but honestly, I'm at about 25 and that is still a whole lot of books to read in a year. So ya. :)

I guess so. Ya know how life just kind of sucks sometimes? That's the boat I'm in right now. I just want to know that I have a purpose. I just have this parasite sucking the life out of me and that's really all I feel good for. Making a baby. And I'm frustrated with Pandora Radio at the moment. It keeps playing stupid songs that I don't want to listen to. Lame sauce. Another issue, I have been writing a book. Haven't worked on it in a while because I got stuck. That was six months ago. Still stuck. So much for that idea. Or maybe not. I'm gonna just try writing and see where that gets me. Some random ideas are better than none, I guess.
So I have been on a leave of absence from my Convergys job for a while. But somewhere along the way the paperwork was misplaced. And that sucks. So I'm trying to get that all figured out, but to be honest, I really don't want to go back to work there. I should probably just quit. Ugh. I hate that job. Which is a reason Ross has been pushing me to work on my book, because he thinks I could get it published eventually. And make money for us and our kid. It's nice to have a supportive husband. I sure do love that guy.

My dear little fetus child is growing. And that has me pretty happy! I've got a little baby bump, which is fantastic. So this morning at about 10:25 AM the little critter rolled over and I FELT IT! It was lovely and wonderful. It felt really weird though, but I was really happy to feel it. I sure do love my little critter. :)
