Tis the Season...

...To be done with finals, decorate a christmas tree, buy christmas gifts, be domestic, watch christmas movies, listen to christmas music, wear beanies and snow boots, enjoy sleeping in, spend time with family, wear ugly sweaters, and GO SKIING (if UTAH would get snow)! Travis and I love this time of year! Travis mostly because my stress level drops significantly and me mostly because scientific terminology is replaced with jingle bells! It has been little rough being away from the families during the season and missing the parties but we have had such a blast up here in the Pacific NorthWest. The first of december was spent in the anatomy lab and travis watching TV. After finals were finished, it was full blown christmas town! We got our tree from a lot in downtown Pullman, decorated it with lights and decorations and Travis spent hours on our balcony making sure it looked just right! Me and my classmates were so excited about the end of the semester we got together for an ugly sweater party, white elephant gifts and WAY to much food. It was refreshing to hang out not at school. It has been great doing normal things that are not school related! Travis is obsessed with Christmas lights! Ours, the neighbors, Pullmans, and anywhere else. Some friends and us went down to Lewsiton, ID to see a light display in a park down by the river. It was charmingly awful! The trees were hung with mismatched lights and hung completely lopsided but it was so beautiful in its own way. Travis also surprised me with an over night trip to Couer d'Alene to see the light show around the lake. We ate amazing chinese food, then caught the ferry for a ride across the lake to "Santa's Workshop". It was a fabulous weekend to just relax, enjoy the christmas spirit, and spend some time together. We really have enjoyed Washington and can't wait to continue exploring it. We leave for Utah the 22nd and can't wait to spend Christmas with the families!

Thanksgiving came as a much needed break. We were lucky enough to be able to go to Utah for the break. I went home for a week and Travis met me in Utah the night before Thanksgiving! The vacation was pretty mellow, I had two stipulations...eat at Dairy Keen and Ride my mule. Both were achieved beautifully! Seeing the family was the highlight for sure. We were able to go un to Logan for Thanksgiving dinner. The entire Godderidge family got together for dinner with great food and good fun! We were able to go trap shooting the day after thanksgiving and a Pheasant hunt the day after that. Needless to say our arms were sore! We had a great time being back in Utah and are excited to come home for Christmas.

On our way home from the airport for thanksgiving, we didn't want the vacation to end so we wandered around Spokane to see the Christmas decor!
