Last week was Thanksgiving Break and I was lucky enough to get to go home. I'm from California, so I flew home on Friday night with my sister and about half of my high school. I was so excited to have a break from school for a little while and just relax for a whole week. When we got home, we ate a really good dinner and just hung out with the whole family. It was so nice to all be together again. The next day, we watched as Buffs football. It was pouring in my hometown and we couldn't help but think that we should've stayed in Boulder as the football game showed a warm and sunny day. We decided maybe next year, but as of now we had to make the best of it. So I went to the movies with my sisters and helped my mom make dinner at night.
A few days later was Thanksgiving. Every year for Thanksgiving, my aunt, uncle, and cousins come over and this year, we were lucky enough to have my grandparents staying with us. We all watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which is my favorite part of thanksgiving, and a lot of football. Everybody helped with making dinner, although my job every year is just to make the Pilsbury Crescent rolls, apparently my family doesn't trust my cooking skills very much which I think is probably wise. Finally, it was time to eat. We went around the table and said what we were thankful for. It was great being with my whole family for dinner and we were very full after.
The day after Thanksgiving, we decided that it was officially Christmas season. We went a got our Christmas tree and my dad and I decorated the front of our house with lights. We went to our town's tree lighting, where everybody meets at our famous oak tree and watches them light it while the high school sings Christmas Carols. It was so much fun being home, but I'm so happy that I'm back in Boulder. All we need now is a little snow!
