Catch Up

Wow, I haven't posted in a really long time. Well, I'll just try to give a brief update of how Preston and I are doing. This is the last week of school, so we've been trying to get all our last big projects and papers done and next week we get to take all our tests :)

On November 22nd, Liz and I threw a baby shower for Ka and we were happy to find that it was a success!! We had a lot of people show up and we were able to put together all the food and games. They may have been lame games, but they were fun.

Later that day was the big U vs Y game, which we all know how that turned out. We drove up to Preston's house for a football party with a bunch of his family and friends. Half of us were routing for the Y and half were for the U, so it made for a pretty entertaining group. But since we were going to be with so many rival routers, we had to show our team spirit and decided to take some blue jello. The jello was a good idea, but writing "BYU" with whipped cream before we made the drive was anything but a good idea. Liz was with us and took a video of it as we were driving, so hope you think it's as funny as we did.

So sad ...

Thanksgiving was great! I didn't take any pictures for some reason, but we stayed at Preston's parent's house and spent a lot of time with his family. Julianna, Dan and Mikayla were here from Washington, so it was fun to spend time with them. And of course, we spent some time with my family also :) But, dinner at Preston's was great! Mom tried a new way of cooking the turkey and it turned out divine! Since she cooked the Turkey without stuffing she had to make stuffing separately and experiment. That one didn't turn out quite as good as the turkey and we all decided it was the stuffing that made us all get way more full about half an hour after we finished eating. The day after Thanksgiving we got to help put the tree up and start listening to Christmas music! It was so nice to have a break from school and work and sleep in!

Preston and I have put our tree up and decorated outside. We're still trying to find time to pull everything else up and decorate the tree, but it's a work in progress. I had my harp concert last saturday too and it went really well. Probably one of my favorite concerts in my whole BYU career. My group played Solfeggietto and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The best part was that we all wore tape on our noses when we walked out for Rudolph and after a dramatic beginning to the song, we stuck red noses on and started the melody :) It was so much fun!

Well that's all for now, but hopefully you'll be hearing from us again soon!
