home for the HOLIDAYS :]

oh my heck. i seriously don't even know where to begin. i don't think i have quite enjoyed the holidays as much as i did this year. they were a blast! :] christmas was something i had been looking forward to since august when my parents dropped me off in logan. haha. but anyways.. it was a fun-filled, jam-packed 6 days that i spent in burley. not one second was wasted. i hung out with friends from highschool, went caroling to old highschool teachers, played in the snow(it actually never stopped snowing while i was there), watched movies, ate, delivered gifts, played guitar hero you name it, i pretty much did it. another thing i loved about being home for christmas were the famous harman family parties. anyone who knows us, knows that the harmans are quite the "party animals." we have a family party at least once every month. but during the month of the december we have a ton. haha. there's seriously nothing like a ton of good food, listening to everyone's stories, and hearing all the laughter is priceless. for christmas eve, we followed the good ole' harman tradition of going to aunt terisa's for christmas dinner. it was delicious. following dinner we did our annual gift exchange. its always fun to see what exciting gifts everyone recieved. on christmas day, we had a dinner at my house. once again, more good food. except we had a little surprise. grandpa bud literally whipped out the apron and show us his cooking skills. now this was a side of grandpa we hadn't ever seen before. but i must say, we all enjoyed it. in fact, tashie even video recorded his cooking demo. his carmel popcorn was delicious. everyone who partook of it greatly enjoyed it. after dinner, we played one of me & my siblings favorite games. its called boxers & briefs, it sounds a bit sketchy, but honestly its not. playing this game with all the harmans was hilarious. my cheeks were hurting so bad by the end of the night. my jam-packed, fun-filled vacation ended with an unexpected 5 hour drive back to logan. the roads were insanely bad, but i'm grateful that i made it back here in one piece. i miss my family already. this christmas was seriously the best. there's really no place like home for the holidays. i'm already looking forward to next year... :]
