Thanksgiving was lovely. I had such a splendid time with my family! Thursday morning, we all made our way over to my Grandparents home. Grandma Shirley cooked a great dinner! Earlier in the week, Danielle and I made pies for Thanksgiving and thankfully they all turned out really good! We got the recipes online from the Paula Deen website. The Pecan Pie and Apple Pie were yummy. It was wonderful sitting at the table listening to all the funny stories being told and talking with everyone. Later, I got to look through some old picture albums and I realized what a blessing it was to be with my family in Tennessee.
Last Friday night was fun! I went to Tuscaloosa with friends and met up with students at the University of Alabama. It was a little too late to go bowling so we all went to IHOP. My lovely friend Amanda Nolander and I split some scrumptious strawberry pancakes... yum! So, as you know Judson is all about traditions and I really love being a part of them! The most special tradition as a freshman is getting to choose someone from the sophomore class to be your Big Sister! Amanda Nolander is my Big Sister and I am her Little Sister! Even after college is over, Amanda and I will always be sisters!
Finals are coming!! Run for your lives!! This week is going to be a little busier than normal. I cannot believe there is only one more week of school before I travel home for the Christmas break! I am so excited to see my family and friends! They are so supportive and I am thankful for all their encouragement. Oh! I kind of have some sad news... Charlie, the sweet Labrador I found, wasn't at Judson when I came back from Thanksgiving. I was disappointed, but hopefully, he was found by a nice family:) Well, I need to study for my Art Appreciation final. Talk to you later!
