We have been in desperate need of more storage space so we bought a $12 bed frame, 6 cinderblocks, and planks of wood from Charles’ dad. We now have our bed raised quite high with lots of storage space we are filling up quickly. It is nice to have more room and so thing aren’t so cluttered in other areas of our apartment.
On Thursday Charles and I held a Russian dinner at our apartment and had my three cousins over. It was lots of fun.
The next day after the dinner we had run out of forks, so here is Charles using the last remaining fork which is usually used for serving food, not eating.
On Friday Charles and I went to the movie theater to see our first movie at a theater together. We saw Harry Potter at the dollar theater. I really enjoyed it and am so excited for the last and final Harry Potter movie.
The BYU vs. Wyoming game was a nice and easy shut out of 52 to nothing. We were quite excited, but felt bad for Wyoming.
My mom and Larry came over Saturday evening and they got to try the Russian food that Charles had made. It was fun too see them again and talk to them.
Saturday evening we spent with our good friend Rose.
This Sunday we had the Primary Program and although we usually have 10 kids in Nursery, we only had 4 little kids today that came up with their parents to sing two songs. But it was nice to have so few kids in Nursery because that meant that Charles and I were able to attend actual classes. It was nice to hear all of the announcements in Relief Society and to know what was going on for the next month.
This morning I wanted English Muffins for breakfast so I found a recipe online for them and made a large amount. They were so yummy that we now only have two left.
Charles and I were on campus one evening and we saw a guy wearing cargo shorts on a cold day which is weird, but not too weird, but then we noticed that he was wearing leggings under his shorts. Its weird enough that girls wear leggings, but when a guy does, that is just too much.
This week Charles decided to grow out his facial hair once to see how it would be. He didn’t grow it out very long, but it did get long pretty fast. So here is a picture of half of his hair shaven off.
I had an ASL Club meeting this week about becoming an interpreter. Unfortunately, the interpreters that were signing the whole time did not talk at all. I consequently missed most of what they were saying, but it was good practice in watching people sign. I did pick up on the signs that I knew which is always fun to know that I know a little bit of what they were signing. Although I didn’t understand most of what they signed, I did learn a lot through their body language and am excited to become really good at signing and would love to become an interpreter. I have started doing a lot more studying and looking up all sorts of signs online to be able to sign more things.
This weekend was Dancesport at BYU. Although I am in DANCE 181, County Western, I did not participate, but I sure had a lot of fun watching everyone perform. Everyone did so well in performing. Charles was so kind as to stay to the bitter end of it to see the little kids perform and the world famous people perform. We didn’t have any chairs to sit in and consequently stood for about four hours watching people dance.
For the BYU vs. New Mexico game this week, we went to Santaquin to watch it. But by half time it was snowing (the first real snow of the season) pretty bad and decided we better get home before we got stuck on the roads.
Charles was making the filling for three pumpkin pies at the same time, but he accidently 6 times the sugar instead of tripled it from the recipe. So he had to dig out half the sugar he put in, it was quite amusing. But he does believe that he got most of it out although it seems a hair sugary then it is supposed to be.
