Belated Thanksgiving Recap

Well, it's been a little while since I wrote! Happy December! I can't believe there are only 20 days until Christmas. Craziness. It will be my first Christmas with the Parkers, and I'm quite looking forward to it. It will be weird to have a Christmas without my parents, but I think it's going to be great!
Luckily we were able to have my parents for Thanksgiving, and a wonderful adventure it was. My parents came into Provo on Wednesday morning. They stayed with me and Geoff at our apartment on the fold down couches in the living room. I know those of you who have been to my apartment think this would be a squeeze, but it actually worked out very nicely. Rubi and Rubio took a day or so to get used to eachother, but got along pretty well, I think.
Wednesday we went to Lindsay's (Matt's Wife) work and my mom bought a Blend Tech blender from her (Will it blend!?). Then we stopped by my work and my mom gave me a Staples Easy Button for an office warming gift. Ha. We lunched, played games, and dinnered.
Thursday consisted of pie baking, games with the 6 of us, and dinner at Mimi's Cafe. They make one heck of a Thanksgiving dinner!
Friday me and Geoff got up before the sun to take part in the Black Friday shopping extravaganza. We pulled in some pretty good loot and only have one person left on our Christmas shopping list! Sweet!
We went home at about noon and hooked up with the parents and Matt and Lindsay for brunch. Then us and the parents went to Ikea. Fantastik! Ha. Then we head up to Salt Lake for dinner at The Dodo Restaurant and Bolt. The movie was way fun. Saturday the men went to a movie while mom and I made my kitchen respectable again. Men are so lucky!
So now I'm in the midst of a pledge drive at work, and we're feeling the recession. I'm still hopeful we'll make goal, though. :)
Geoff will be finishing his first semester at UVU next week! Yay!
Our lives are just continuing along at breakneck pace! Christmas will be here before we know it!
