Cougar Craze

We enjoyed the BYU game in some pretty amazing seats last night. Sam always goes to the games, but yesterday I thought we'd try to bring the whole family and sit up in the rafters while the kids ran around. Luckily for us though, my brother Ryan came through in the clutch. Ryan knows Dave Rose's wife through work, and she offered him 6 3rd row seats for last night's game. That's the third time Ryan has had the seats, but the first time I've been able to go. We had a pre-game meal at the Marriott Center, free concessions throughout the game, and a pretty good view of the game. To top it all off, the Cougars won, taking their record to 19-1.

Halle was thrilled to be so close to the cheerleaders.

Winter Blues?

I've been slacking in the blog department lately, and I have a really good excuse: I hate January. Like, I really hate it. Why? 1) Inversions are the worst! 2) I hate driving in the snow. 3) It's stinkin' cold! 4) My skin could seriously use some color.

Every year about this time I start to check out real estate in Arizona. I don't mind snow around Christmas time, but come December 26th, I am ready for spring. There's nothing better than watching a tulip come out of the ground. Here's the depressing part: That's still 3 months away! That's 90 days! So, for the next 90 days, I'm stuck in the house, trying to entertain my children. Yay!

On the bright side, at least Jack Bauer is back saving the world from terrorists.

Today I'm Grateful

One of my New Years Resolutions is to be more grateful for what I have. Too often I find myself thinking, "if we only had a bigger house/car/paycheck/etc.," but I have so many things in my life that make me smile. Most of all, my beautiful babies! They are bigger now, and just as adorable, but I love to look at their tiny features of when they were just new. You are welcome to check out their adorableness and ohh! and ahh! all you want. I love these two!

Oh, and if you are looking for one more reason to smile, check this out. It's a clip on a new documentary about babies. Seriously, so cute!
