This week has been so fun and has really made me think about everything I'm thankful for. This was my first year away from home for thanksgiving, it made me REALLY thankful for my family and to be with Jarom and that his family let me come and spend Thanksgiving with them! Jarom came to Rexburg saturday...SAFELY (Barely) and he got to see my school and spend time with some of his friends there and take our engagement pictures :) While he was there, my roommates "surprised" us with a romantic candle lit dinner! It was super great! We had a fun drive to california, LONG but fun! I just really home sick and was pretty sad the day before Thanksgiving but Jarom was right there with me! He's so great! :) Thanksgiving day was SO fun! I did a LOT better than i thought i would to be honest! haha We watched the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade and made candy turkeys and ate lots of yummy food and spent time with family! The day after Thanksgiving we woke up early and went shopping and got a Christmas tree with the family! I had so much fun! I definately missed being home but had a lot of fun with my soon to be in-laws! We also went to the Oakland Temple to see the christmas lights on it light up. We went in the RV and ate dinner and waited for the lights to turn on. it happened a lot later than we thought it would but we had fun playing around and talking and spending time together! On sunday we made graham cracker houses with candy and frosting. Its a tradition in the Lance family so it was fun for me to be a part of it this year :) Jarom and I made a gazeebo just like the one we got engaged in. Its pretty cute, i'll post picture of that later! We LOVED spending time together and look forward to our future! Here are some pictures of our fun Thanksgiving together! WARNING: Picture overload!
At the Temple. I think Jarom looks so handsome in this picture ;)
Waiting in the RV for the lights to turn on. Staring at the temple while nothing was happending hahaha
Jarom and I also took a little drive to Monterey to drop his cousin, Joseph off. We stopped and spent some time at the Beach. It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!
Joanna had this bright idea to make popcorn things to string around the tree so she did it, Janae and i tried to help but our needle was too big and the popcorn kept breaking so i gave up and actually didn't help at all but i posed so it looked like i was doing something haha We had fun!
Romantic candle lit dinner! :)
getting the christmas tree! So exciting! :)
Everyone had to take a turn cutting down the tree, I of course didn't make a dent but it was fun. And funny haha
Everyone was playing with baby Sadie after dinner, she was being so cute and fun! :)

Thanks to everyone who made my week so fun and to Jarom for coming ALL the way to Rexburg to see me and spend time with me and to the Lance family for letting me come crash their Thanksgiving! I am so blessed and thankful for it all! :)
