Sunday came and it was the day of our date. I was super excited. It was Sarah's first date here at college and I was going with Matt Peterson. All we we were quite worried one of them would change their mind but they didn't. So 330 rolled around and I went to go get Sarah and Andy. I had to pick up Matt in South Jordan so for the first 30 minutes it was just the three of us. We talked about funny things that happened at girls camp and stuff like that. Then once we got Matt he gave me a quick tour of his house and then HE drove my car to Salt Lake. The whole night he made fun of my car and how it wasn't good enough for him stuff like that. So we went to the Christmas Devotional. It was good. Matt slept through Pres Uchtdorf's talk I was fine with that because I knew he'd been up till like four am but apparently Sarah wasn't too happy with that. After we had a picnic in the back of Richard's jeep. Sandwiches and such. Then we walked around and looked at the lights. It was really pretty. The big trees didn't have lights on them which was sad but understandable.Matt and I in front of the Salt Lake Temple

Well Saturday I got to hang out with Ariel for like 20 minutes. That was fun. I really enjoyed talking to her and seeing her. After that Sarah and I cleaned my car. Oh what fun that was. But it needed to get done. We went and got some cleaning supplies from Macey's, the grocery store, and on our way out we saw the greatest man in the world, Santa. At first he was a little scary only making hand gestures and stuff but whatever we finally figured out what to do and we got our pictures taken with Santa. After the pictures we went back to Lauren's and cleaned. When that was done we went to Aunt Karen's for the Christmas dinner. I brought Cassie, Mels and of course Sarah. It was fun. Sarah and I still needed to get some grocery shopping done but that didn't happen till like 10 pm because we decided to go to Christmas Around the World. It was crazy. Some of it was cool...other parts not so much. After that we went shopping for our date Sunday. We finally got out of the store a little before midnight.

Well this morning one of my lovely roommates decided to blast Christmas music. The song I woke up to was Jon Schmidt Christmas Medley. I woke up thinking I was at home. Then I realized I wasn't. Funny how I thought the CD with Jon Schmidt was Lauren. So I woke up thinking I was at home then realized I was still here. Then I called my Daddy and he didn't answer so I left him a message then in the middle of it he called me back. I told him that I was really really homesick and he said "well you're home will be there in two and a half weeks. I'm excited to see my Daddy again. :-) and Carmen and my Mom but mostly Daddy. Sorry... :-) Well today I get to see Ariel George and then work and go to a family Christmas party. woo.

Today I made Great-Grandma Cutchen's Red Velvet Cake.
I made a layer green for Christmas.
I didn't have a lot of food coloring though.
Hence the not really red or green.
Still tasted amazing
OH I also forgot vanilla
Still amazing though.
