Thanksgiving 2011 will likely go down as one of the most memorable.
My roommate Joleen invited me to go with her to St. George to her aunt and uncle's. Her cousin Maren was also there, as well as another aunt and uncle. They were all so fun and nice!
We showed up on Wednesday night and decided we wanted to have our very own turkey trot the next morning. We decided to take it a step further and run all the way to Arizona (a whopping 4.5 miles from their house...though we ended up only going 3.2 miles. But doesn't it sound cool to say we ran from Utah to Arizona?)
No race is complete without an official t-shirt. Joleen, Maren, and made a trip to Walmart to buy some blank shirts and some iron-on transfer paper.
After the great run, Tim worked on this video as dinner was cooking.
Personally, I love this video. It makes me laugh so hard each time I watch it, which has been a lot. :)
After an amazing dinner, we went on a pre-pie hike up this hill/mountain right by their house.
On Friday morning, Joleen and I went to the St. George temple on the way out of town. It's so beautiful!
Such a great weekend. I always love Thanksgiving and the focus put on the blessings I have. Hope it was great for you too!

I was just grading an interior design quiz I gave to my 8th graders. They were supposed to list the principles of design. I remember watching him as he took the quiz and could tell that he didn't remember some of them. Here are his responses...
- Emphasis (correct)
- Harmony (correct)
- Potential (??? At least it starts with a P like it's supposed to)
- Pattern (That's an element, not a principle)
- Polygamy (What the?)
- Waffles (oh goodness)
Nice try, buddy.
