BYU-Oklahoma game

Justin has been bugging me to get our trip to Dallas for the BYU game up on the blog for a while. Why you ask? Purely for bragging rights to all our BYU fan friends and family, I'm sure. It was about the funnest game ever and we LOVED it. Plus going without the kids was a bit of a bonus. (Thanks Lesha and Dave!) We got to go with my mom and dad and had a blast with them!

This is the Oklahoma side right after BYU won. (Notice all the empty seats?)

...And here's the BYU side. All the BYU fans stuck around, we were all so excited.

Oklahoma fans were, I think, the nicest, most cordial, gracious fans I've ever encountered. And I have been to some games where we have had to deal with some pretty rough, foul mouthed rival fans. So thanks to Oklahoma fans for making the game even more enjoyable.

Fort Worth was Justin's mission so this trip had double purpose for us. He took me all over his mission and we even got to go visit a lady that he taught. (Love you Gloria!) This was his apartment in one of his areas. (Can you tell he looks thrilled to be posing for a picture in front of someone's apartment?)

Mia's Birthday

Mia turned 4 a couple of weeks ago, and being the slacker mom that I am didn't get it up on the blog before she pointed out that her birthday pictures weren't on the "bloggy" (every word ends in "y" these days). What the heck?! I don't blog very often and my 4-year-old still noticed the discrepancy. So here she is...

Very excited that she now has a girl bike. She was very done with the tonka truck hand-me-down bike from Matthew.

When I asked what kind of cake Mia wanted she immediately said "pink cookie monster".
A little random (okay, a lot random) but the great thing about Mia is that she is very decisive and doesn't take FOREVER deciding on something (nudge, nudge Matthew and Daddy).

She got to have her first friend party and decided on Strawberry Shortcake. We had 17 kids(ACK!!!) ranging from 1-5 in our small house at one time so... very chaotic!. Though, Mia assured me that it was the "most awesomest party in history" so it was a success.
