Festivus and Thanksgiving... It's the holiday season!

Our holiday ugly sweater party (Festivus) was a great success!  Everyone said they had a good time, and one person's hair caught on fire, which I think indicates the party was a hit!

It was a much bigger turn out than we anticipated!  I definitely think we are gonna make this an annual thing...

And the ugly sweater competition was HILARIOUS! 
Eric was the winner! He won $1,000,000 (in the form of a chocolate bar...)

Thanksgiving was a really good time too!  We had great food (as usual).  Everyone in my family really knows how to cook! 
And my mom, sister and I carried our our new tradition of spectating the crazies at Walmart at the start of Black Friday.  It was super claustrophobic in the humungous store.  I got a crock-pot for $3, so that was a win!

Oh, I almost forgot! I purchased my first DSLR camera over the Thanksgiving break!  I got a great deal on Amazon on the Canon Rebel XS.  I can't wait for it to be delivered!  I sent it to my parents' house (I do not trust Oak Park people THAT much) so I will have to wait to get my hands on it.  Luckily, I still am borrowing my dad's Nikon in the meantime.

Well, it's time to buckle down for finals... right when I just got into the holiday spirit!  Oh well, I'm not too worried about my exams.
