Now for the other updates...Eric and I spent Thanksgiving in Vernal with his family. Neither of us had classes that Monday or Tuesday so we got the whole week off which was much needed...especially for Eric. I fell in love with Eric's family the first time I met them so I really enjoy going to visit them. We always have such a fun time and I always feel like I've had a relaxed and nice vacation when we go there. Some things that we did when we were in Vernal for the week were help set up the Christmas lights, went to "Tangled" and "Harry Potter", baked and ate a ton of yummy food, I went shopping with Eric's grandma which was fun to have a girls outing, we celebrated Will's (Eric's little brother) 6th birthday at Farr's ice-cream, cut down Christmas trees, and visited with everyone. All in all it was a great trip and I was grateful that Eric and I finally got to spend so time together since he's been so busy with school. Below are some pictures of our trip.Will and his much wanted Woody doll that he played with the rest of the time we were there.
Eric cutting down our Christmas tree which Eric's grandma graciously found for us since every tree we found ended up not being able to work. She picked a great one! It looks perfect in our living room.After coming back from Thanksgiving, we finished up the last 2 weeks of school and are starting finals this week. One more semester almost down! Then we are going home to Ely for the Christmas break which I'm very excited for and hope it doesn't go by to quickly!
As for life in general, we couldn't be happier! I feel so very blessed for everything that I have and for all that the Lord blesses me with each day. I've really enjoyed this Christmas season and to focused on the Savior. I've been in a New Testament class this semester, covering the 4 gospels and have enjoyed studying Christ's life and mission on this Earth. We finished the class last week with Christ's atonement and it's really helped me have the spirit with me this Christmas season and remember what it's truly about.
We hope everyone has a great rest of the Christmas season. We are so very grateful for everyone in our lives who has helped us, befriended us, and loves and supports us. Merry Christmas!
