The Last Days... of Fall that is

It always amazes me how quickly the seasons seem to pass. Christmas is less than a month away? Time seems to literally be slipping from my hands. But I'm glad to know that that time is being spent with some of the best people I've ever known. & here is what we have been up to.

Introducing Carlitos. My new best friend. My roommate Jessica is involved with a program called Latino Outreach, which sets up young adults with Latino children whose parents don't speak english so that the children have someone to help them with their homework. This past Tuesday I was off of work early so I decided to go with Jess. I had so much fun learning letters with Cariltos. Plus we now have a handshake. 
That is us on the chalk board. Melt my heart. 

Aimee is in charge of our Family Home Evening group. We get together every monday night for good times with great friends.  Lately we have been very crafty with our finger paintings and home made pilgrim/indian toppers.

Highlight of the year. TWILIGHT BREAKING DAWN. I don't care how nerdy/lame you THINK Twilight is. The movie was so good. I've seen it twice already, and I replay it in my head for most of the day.

So maybe Aimee and I like to 'dress up' like (guess who) to go get ice cream when all of our roommates have already left for thanksgiving. 


& then we walk out our front door and find this: Real Snow.

Which turns into this the next morning. 
I like the snow, but I'd be just fine with it staying just on the mountain for now.

Also, we went to the LAST football game of the year. 
Topped it all off by eating an entire cougar tail. each. 
*cougar tail: a 2 foot maple bar, that if eaten in one sitting will make you want to cry. 


Then on Monday, Katie and I decided that crepes were in order. 
50% off Turkey Pesto Crepes. Molto Bene. 


& Thanksgiving break finally came!
More Instagram pictures coming soon to a monitor nearest you.
