weekend roundup.

on friday jon had to do some wind tunnel testing things for air devils.  i went with, and it was a little scary!  but it was mostly cool!





at the end they were looking at the computer screen at their results and saying "it looks really good!"  and i was thinking "what?  you mean those two lines?  what does that even mean?!"  oh engineers.

(it might be funny to note that i was wearing my "Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering" polo that day, and so to a stranger i probably looked like i should have known what was going on.  but no sir.  i studied english, thank you.)

on saturday i prepared a mini-thanksgiving!  i wanted to try my own for the first time, and i was really nervous!  plus, i didn't know anyone who has cooked a turkey breast before (as opposed to a whole turkey) so i didn't have anyone to ask questions, but it turned out okay considering the first-time factor and everything.  and the cheese plate!  i killed that cheese plate!!





and last night, we watched the first presidency of the church give their annual christmas devotional.  you can watch or read it here.

(side note: WAY TO GO RECORDER-GUY!!  who knew that instrument actually had life outside of the third grade music class??  and that it sounds good?!)

but i have to warn you:  president uchtdorf's story is NOT AT ALL funny or charming or happy (like that poorly-placed-candlesticks story from last year.)  i kept hoping, as his talk went on, that he would go back to it and reveal a happy ending but he never did.  fortunately president eyring told a fairly comedic story about a barometer, of all things, as a christmas present for his son.  what the random??


happy december!  can you believe it's here already?
