Brrrrr!!!!

So, I know that this happened a week ago, but since it was finals for the both of us this week and Leisy and Kent came into town, we've been a little swamped. The best final for me was when I walked into the classroom and the teacher handed us all note that said, "You're grade as of today is __________. You can either take this grade or take the test and factor it in." Considering my blank had an A written and that I didn't really study that hard for this test, I just signed my name at the bottom of the paper and left along with the other 75% of the class that didn't want to take the test either. I was hoping my professor on Thursday did the same, but of course, he didn't.

The pictures are from our trip up the Polar Express last Friday with Hailey and Steve and their little squirt of a son. Laney was given four tickets from KBYU and we thought it would be fun to go. I think the pictures make it look more than it really is. We sat next to the door and the elves on the train kept opening it up and leaving it open. The "hot chocolate" they gave us was no longer hot. Originally, the tickets were $30 for a ride to the "North Pole" visit Santa and then ride back. We couldn't understand why the tickets were that expensive. Had we have paid, it would have been $120. The most frustrating part was that Santa only gave the bells to the children. I still believe in Santa, why can't I have a bell for being put through that long train ride. Jack loved Santa. "San! San! San!" And he loved the elves. They danced when we were caroling, and Jack just stared. We think he was a little confused with their costumes.






PS - We're still waiting for our cookies that are shaped like Josh and McKenna. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

Weird music?! My music isn't weird! I don't listen to 'Rockapella.' THAT'S weird music.

Ummm...cookies...this week is swamped, but hopefully this weekend/before Christmas you'll get 'em. There will be one skinny one...Josh...and one really fat one...me...you can decide who gets to eat me. There might be a fight, however, for I will be the bigger, more tasty cookie.

Okay so we went on this a couple years ago and it was AWFUL. Annoying elves, dumb food, and we passed the North Pole going like 150 mph and didn't even know it or something like that. Was there a boy elf there that told jokes the whole time???
