let's eat.

Happy Late Thanksgiving! I got to go home to Seattle for thanksgiving. It was very relaxing and fun spending time with family. I am so grateful my parents fly me home! I am so full of thanks this year. I am so grateful I get to go to Jerusalem for a semester. I can't even wait. I am so grateful for the gospel, my family, my friends, and my education. Here's a little about my week. I flew home on Saturday night. My parents took me out to dinner at a place called the keg. It was very yummy. Sunday we went to church and then my mom made yummy chicken fajitas. I love how my mom always cooks for me when I come home. I love free food! And best of all home cooked meals. Monday morning my dad wanted to spoil me and he took me to sammamish cafe! Oh how I love the californian omelet! Then my mom and me went shopping. We got chipotle on the way home and then watched a movie.
Tuesday my dad spoiled me again and took me indoor skydiving because he has cheap tickets. It was so fun! The guy said I did really good. I wish we could have done it longer though. It was a really cool experience. 
Wednesday the kids ditched school and we went to seattle. We went to pikes place. oh how i love that place. I never get sick of it. Then we went to the pacific science center. There was a butterfly exhibit which was really cool. I'm pretty sure it was my first time going to the PSC. Which is weird cause we have a family pass. haha. Then we saw the imax movie Jerusalem. My dad really wanted us all to see it since I am going. It was really cool how they talked about all the different religions that live there and it's history. The whole time I was watching it I was like OH MY GOSH I can't believe I am going there! It's going to be the best experience ever. Then I went to visit the Doty's! It was fun visiting them! 
On Thanksgiving we took the boat out! It was a gorgeous day! I love lake Sammamish! We took our cousins out. It was so fun. Then we had our yummy meal. We had our Aunt and Uncle, Grandma and Grandpa, the sister missionaries, the lewis's, and a guy from a ward. It was weird not having the morrissey's and my grandma and aunt over though. I sure did miss them. Ah i love thanksgiving and being with friends and family.
Friday was a relaxing day. I went to take pictures for a project, I have to take a self portrait with a tripod. SO hard. I don't know which one I will use but my mom helped me with that. It was such a foggy day out but it was still so pretty on the lake. Then we went to go see captain phillips. such a good movie! Then later that night hayley and tori came over. It was so good to catch up with them!
Today I flew to Utah and my sister and brian picked me up and we went to city creek, saw temple lights and then went to olive garden! It was a good day! I love seeing the temple lights. I leave tomorrow for rexburg. I'm excited to go back, but only to see my friends. Not for the homework...
Happy December! Let the Christmas festivities begin!
