Yeah, yeah, I know. I haven’t writing anything on my blog at all, but that’s alright. I’ll see what I can do about getting started for real this time.
Anyway, Thanksgiving was completely awesome. I was able to just play some Zelda with my little brother for hours and hours, just like we did when he was little. We started a new file and got clear to the final boss before I had to head back down to Provo to attend these last few weeks of this semester of college.
We decided to head to my grandparents’ house for Thanksgiving this year, and boy was it fun. Not only did I get to hang out with my grandparents, family, and cousins, we were able to play a bunch of games and just really enjoy each other’s company. One of the games that we played, is one of my absolute favorite ones. That game is Dominion. Dominion is a card-based strategy game where each player tries to collect the most areas of land to win. You see, each player is a brand new monarch that wishes to expand their own kingdoms and to gain a complete Dominion! Its a really fun game that is well worth the time learning to play. My Washington DC uncle introduced us to the game and we have since been playing it as a family since.
Now for the delicious, amazing, home-cooked food that we had on Thanksgiving itself. It was just that: delicious, amazing and home-cooked. The day previous, I had slaved over a stove making 10 pounds of mashed potatoes, 5 pounds of sweet potatoes, and a saucepan full of cranberry sauce. They were pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. Everyone enjoyed them, so I was satisfied. My grandma’s turkey was delicious as well. Not to mention the awesome pies that we had afterward: pumpkin pie (provided by my aunt), with pecan pie and peanut butter pie (provided by my mother). They were just fantastic and well worth the painful wait for the pies.
During Thanksgiving break, we also went to go see two new movies in the theatre. The first was The Muppets. What a fantastic movie. It brought back a ton of memories of my dear-to-the-heart Muppets. It was full of old-school Muppet humor, such as constantly breaking the 4th wall and using all of their awesome jokes that they’ve used before. If you haven’t seen it, you totally should. The other movie that we saw was Hugo. Hugo was a charming movie that was full of a constant mystery. I really enjoyed the movie, but I could tell that my book-loving sister and mother enjoyed it much more than I did.
Well, now its time for the last few weeks of the semester. Stressful times, but also enjoyable times. I just can’t wait for the semester to just be over though. At least Christmas break will be awesome, as I’ll be able to spend more time with my family for a few more months. Oh, and I get to go to the bowl game with a portion of the marching band. Should be fun, but it’ll be strange since only a portion is going. Have a fantastic day everyone!
