It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

So thanksgiving just past and we (tom and I) were pretty annoyed we couldnt get any work off to go see family and what not. Well luckily Jody and Alex (my sis and bro in law) were able to come up from Utah to spend a few days with us.

Anywho, they came up wednesday afternoon and we just hung out until we made a trip up to Big Juds... for those who don't know what that is.. its a hamburger place where you can order a HUGE 1 lb hamburger (which alex did, show in the pic below) and then they even have up to 4lb burgers... its disgusting.

Thursday I was very happy not to have to go to work... We played games all day and then finally went down to... Chuck-a-rama of all places for thanksgiving dinner. Jody and Alex went there last year for thanksgiving and said it was pretty good so thats what we decided to do (and for all those who know tom, he loves that for me, i was happy enough to get a slushie that was close enough to a slurpee) Im not sure if i was in the mood for thanksgiving food because earlier that week i was craving thanksgiving dinner and made mashed potatoes, green beans, chicken(close enough to turkey) and then got sick afterwards. But I managed to eat some good stuff there... overall i thought it was a good way to spend thanksgiving.

Friday I work up around 5am... not for the early morning specials, because i had the liberty of opening for work. Whoopie! or not. It was a bummer because jody and alex were at my apt along with tom who last minute got the day off. That day of work was pretty easy but i was mad that I had to stay there. I ended up passing out (for who knows what reason.. i was drinking water and ate breakfast that morning) early in the morning and ended up having to stay because of one child. At least it went by fast.

That day REALLY felt like christmas because we set up the tree, and went shopping for christmas decorations and lights... i got some neat ornaments for the tree and of course candy canes. It really seems like christmas now! i LOVE IT! i love chrismtas music as well, I really need to get to buying some more christmas CDs or something so ic an listen to them at work.
That night we made tacos for dinner and went to see Four Christmas's (this has been the first time in about 9 months that tom and i have actually been to a real movie theater) Which was a really funny movie. I crashed right when we got home since i was up so early...

Today they left but we got to go to the temple which was way fun, although tom was at work so that was a bummer.... Jody and I tried to make 'dessert burgers' which are SO good but since im not the biggest cook/baker we didnt have some of the necessities to make them so we tried to manage making them with out them and they didn't turn out the best, but tom says their still good as long as we have milk so at least he'll eat them.

Overall the thanksgiving holidays went by SUPER fast and im glad christmas time is finally here and i can officially light my tree and hang my wreath (which i still need to do) We even have 2 presents under our tree (yay!) We're just so sad that we can't go to either home for christmas this year since we have to work.... and we're gonna be stuck here in rexburg.. again. Hopefully next year! We def. miss both our families over the holidays and hope to see you guys soon!
