BYU Game

Well, I took Aaron and Nathan over to my parent's house for the BYU-Utah game. We were all dressed up in our BYU gear. We were set to cheer on the cougars to another win.

I have to say, the game was very interesting, not at all what I expected. Both teams were very strong defensively. At half, the only score was a BYU field goal. However, BYU started rolling in the second half and made a couple of very nice drives. But then those drives stalled when they got into the blue zone and BYU had to settle for field goals.

Anyway, I was getting frustrated with BYU's defense in the 4th quarter when they allowed Utah to drive over 60 yards and get a touchdown to lead the game 10-9.

Then the worst happened, BYU was stopped on 3 plays, and they were facing a 4th and 18 yards to go with a little over a minute left in the game. Somehow, Max Hall was able to find a WIDE OPEN Austin Collie for a 49-yard gain. It was awesome. Anyway, as you all know, BYU was able to keep the drive going and punched in an 11-yard run by Harvey Unga to take the lead for good. It was awesome. Aaron, Nathan and I celebrated the second straight victory over the Utes.

Anyway, for the last year, this has been my ringtone. But in honor of this awesome victory, I am thinking of changing it to either this one or this one.

Tell me what you think!

You know your cooking is bad when....

Yesterday we were sitting down to what I thought was going to be a good dinner.  Boy was I wrong!  Kaylee said the prayer and in it she said “please bless that we will never have to eat this again”.  We all started to laugh, yes, even me.  After the prayer Kaylee said “there, now we will never have to eat this yucky dinner again because I prayed for it”.  Unfortunately, she was right – the dinner was kind of gross.  Kaylee’s prayer was answered –we will never have it againJ


I don’t know about everyone else, but I sure hate figuring out what to cook for dinner, especially when the kids start whaling and whining when they find out what I have made.  If anyone has good, kid friendly recipes, please share!
