What a week it has been! I think it is safe to assume we are ALL glad that this week is over!! I'm pretty sure Bear wanted to trade me in for a new wife today, I was so grouchy because just like everybody else, I have been stressed to the max! Poor guy, I better make him his favorite cheesecake for putting up with me! Bear is very excited, he earned an A in chemistry! He worked his little tail off so he deserves it for sure. As for the rest of our classes we are not sure what the final scores are but we are still crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.
This weekend we are going to play play play! It is a tradition in the Hawkins family to make gingerbread houses so we are going to go to Bear's brother's house to do that. The picture above is our cute gingerbread house we made last year!
Well, it is 8:00 p.m. and Bear and I want to go home (we are at the school) to eat some dinner so ta ta for now! Have a great weekend and looooong break!!

For Thanksgiving Bear and I traveled to Idaho to spend time with both of our families. It was a tasty trip I'll have you know. We had a turkey (of course), stuffing, cranberry salad, homemade rolls, sweet potato pie (like candy), potatoes and gravy, and a plethora of homemade pies to choose from. Bear and I chose pecan pie! After dinner we decided to go bowling with all of Bear's brothers and sisters and their children. We had a great time and even got a free bowling game because something went wrong with the lane we were using. Whoo Hoo! And Bear was on fire! He was doing so well and then our computer screen lost all of our scores.... :( bummer for him but good for me I was doing horrible!!
When we returned to school we remembered that we had a tree that needed to be decorated for the Jubilee of Trees. In case you don't know what the Jubilee of Trees is (because I didn't know) they have people sign up who want to decorate a tree then other people who have businesses come and bid on the tree they would like in their office. The money then goes to a charity foundation. So we dressed this cute little tree with blue white for UTAH STATE! We had a fun time doing it and have come up with a great plan for next years tree!
5 days left in the semester! Everybody hang in there we are SO close!!! Have a wonderful weekend and study hard!
