So...its been about a month or so since I have been gone! :( But, I will be back on December 15th!!! Yaye! I will be flying in to Salt Lake City!!! I am so excited to come home, but then I am so sad to be leaving beautiful Florida! Can't I have home and Florida all in one?

Thanksgiving was different this year! I don't remember having a Thanksgiving with my dad in a really long time! So I am glad that I was able to be here for that! It's also kind of weird but neat that everyone's big meals are so completely different. I mean from my moms in Utah and my dads in Florida...very different though the turkey is the same! I love my moms candied yams and Jeanne's (dad's wife) sweet potato casserole!!! mmmmmmm... they are both delicious! Though the casserole might be a little bit healthier...:) Jeanne also made stuffing with apples, and can I just tell you whatever else she did to that stuffing made it superb! It was SO yummy! Just talking about it is making me hungry! There are so many things that I love about the differences that when I actually get to make a turkey...I can combine all the awesome things that I have learned from both families.

The other day I went to the beach...Pensacola beach, and I was surprised to see so many people swimming and wake boarding. The last time I went was when I had first gotten to Pensacola and there was no one on the beach! I did have one goal while I was at the beach though...to find a whole sand dollar! I didn't find one, though I did find a lot that were broken up in a million little pieces. Guess I will just have to go back...

I think that Florida might be the place that I would like to live someday! Don't know when but I really do love it here. The weather is about the same as St. George, Utah but add 100% humidity! Plus you are so close to water everywhere! If dreams do come true I can't wait for mine to...
