Green Bean Casserole

So my Thanksgiving break was so good as always. Football, food, and family are a perfect combination!
Started out the day on Thursday playing some football with my friends from the singles ward.

My team won of course, and I was a HUGE contributor to our success. I think my handstands and cartwheels in the corner really helped out :)

I came home from playing football to find my dad watching the Green Bay/Detroit game like this...he's a goofball
Evan and his beautiful girls

Aleigh and her soon to be new family :)Alex, Momo, Evan, Tiffany, Brooklynn ready for some TURKEY
Mama, Anjuli, Aleigh and Chris ready for some GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

Post dinner rockband extravaganza
Evan's new puppy (Kage) was most very sleepy from the day's festivities
So was Brooky Poo
Bubble baths in Momo's jacuzzi bathtub are the best!
Ready for our family run on Black Friday...needed to burn some of that green bean casserole off!
I am so grateful for my family and the relationship I have with them. My family members are my best friends and I love every moment I get to spend with them. I am such a lucky girl and have been so blessed with such amazing people in my life. :)

Chocolate Sea Creatures, Flowers and Christmas Trees

Yet another Girl's Night! This week we decided to make chocolate suckers. Katie has these awesome molds that make some awesome chocolate shapes! It was way fun as always. I just love my girls so much.

It's becoming more REAL!

So this weekend was my last official "faculty" show of my college career! I do have a few shows left but those are student choreography shows. I performed my last Michael Williams dance ever and frankly, I am a little sad. I have enjoyed performing and dancing for the UA dance ensemble for the past 3 and a half years so much and I am so grateful for the opportunities that this program has given me. Here are some pictures of my cast and with my some of my favorite people!

Thump It w/ a TRUMPET cast (notice the sparkle hands)

Me and my favorite Toe Tapper :)

My number one "dance daddy" Thanks for everything MW!

Picacho Peak has NOTHING on us!

This past Wednesday was Veteran's day so us college students had a day off from our normal schedules and we didn't have to go to school. Katie, Ferenc and I planned a trip to hike Picacho Peak and even though we invited other people, it just ended being us three. Not out of the norm for us. We hiked the HARD trail and dominated the trail! There were parts of the trail that we were literally climbing STRAIGHT up the rocks and pulling ourselves up with the cables that were set there! We were pretty amazing if I do say so myself!

The peak=the goal

Katie's camelback wasn't working...Ferenc fixed it :)
Takin' a little break
Ferenc is glowing because he is Jesus' brother

Over the saddle, now it gets hard

Katie scaling a mountain...no big deal

Mission accomplished...ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP
After we made it to the top, I fell off the edge RIP me

Why Did the Chicken Cross The Road?

To get to the free burritos at Chipotle!!!

So my Grandma had these HUGE chicken costumes in her magic costume closet and Katie and I decided to use those costumes for Halloween! We tried to get Ferenc to be Old McDonald, but he decided that it was too embarrassing to be any kind of associated with us. I think we looked amazing!
AMAZING right?
Anyway, we met up with Catherine and Brian at their ward's trunk or treat and then we went to Chipotle for free burritos. Apparently, every Halloween, if you incorporate aluminum foil in your costume, then you get a free burrito. So Katie and I wrapped some foil around our chicken costumes and we were "chicken burritos" at Chipotle! Clever, I know!

The nerds, the chckens, and the doctor

Two of my favorite girls :)
The night ended with us watching "The Haunting in Conneticut" and me being too scared to go home for fear of dead people being in my walls, so I crashed on Katie and Ferenc's living room floor! No big deal! It was a great night and a great Halloween!

Also, I have to show you all my brother and his family's costumes cuz they were so dang good! My nieces are so beautiful and I love them so mucho!

Sisterly love in Halloween clothes before they put their costumes on :)
