Thanksgiving Break was a lot of fun. Jeff and I spent a some time in Kuna with Conrad and Sarah and Athena before going to the farm. Athena got so big she is such a cutie. We played games and watched movies and stayed up late talking and laughing. Jeff and I both got sick but we got over it really fast. When we went to the farm Carrie and John were there with Dallin. We went shopping with them and I took a family picture for them. I didn't take it with my camera so I can't post any pictures. I got all my Christmas shopping done and I even wrapped most of them. We found an apartment which was a relief because we have to move in a month and they will let us move in half way through the month. I also got some photo journalism assignments taken care of using window light. Jeff's cousins were nice little models for me.
I made my first and last shirt! I finished sewing it today. I will get five extra credit points for turning it in early. Jeff doesn't like the sleeves, he thinks they are too big. Let me know what you think. I hope I get a good grade. I will never make a blouse again, it's cheaper to buy them and they fit better. I did learn a lot of nice things while making it. It took me three tries to get the collar on the way I wanted.
I've been trying to get to know my camera better and experiment with some different lighting and other techniques. Her are just some of the pictures I've taken so of them I turned in for my class. Poor Jeff is always my model and I'm not as worried about the faces he is making as I am the lighting and the pose I put him in.
I just couldn't help myself. Dane and Laurel put their Christmas decorations up so I did today too. As you can see we have a very small tree but I dressed it up with two strands of lights, 200 bulbs to be exact. I want to put the icicle lights up on the window later. I have a candle stand and a big fleece blanket that has snow flakes on it. And we have Jeff's stocking that my Mom made on the wall. I'll have to have her send me mine.
