These past weeks have marked an awesome exhilarating time for Elena and me. After three days of battling our exams the kitchen staff at Holderness treated us to a wonderful Holiday Dinner (see photos below). At the dinner, Elena casually sported footie pajamas, while I wore a simple dress and a halo to symbolize the angel in me. As the dinner came to an end it was time to say goodbye and happy holidays to all our fellow classmates and depart for break! This is when the real fun kicked in.... we made a journey back to Vermont for some fun days of skiing and important Christmas activities that needed attention. This was the perfect thing to do to get some holiday cheer inside of us! As said flawlessly in the movie Elf "the best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear!" Without a doubt we channeled our inner elf. We made paper snowflakes to hang around the house, sang Christmas song after Christmas song, went christmas shopping, watched Christmas movies, and even made Christmas cookies! Needless to say we are so ready for December 25th!!!! Although for the four days we were busy skiing and getting ready for the holiday, we took some time to visit the one and only Jordan Camp. We spent a relaxing afternoon catching up on our lives. It was heartbreaking to leave him again but we will all be reunited hopefully soon. This all abrubtly came to an end because it was time for us to re-enter the ski racing world, with an Eastern Cup series at Sunday River, Maine. Although the skiing part was okay, but the real fun was after. We went out for dinners, watched Glee and learned to interpretive dance to dub-step. After four long days of racing, we went our separate ways to spend the holidays with our family. We'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Chanukah and Happy New Year! Catch you later in 2012!!!
