Happy Birthday ADAM!

I've seen the seven wonders of the world
I've seen the beauty of diamonds and pearls
But they mean nothing baby
Your love amazes me
I've seen a sunset that would make you cry
And colors of the rainbow, reaching cross the sky
The moon in all it's phases
Your love amazes me

Don't you ever doubt this love of mine
You're the only one for me
You give me hope
You give me reason
You give me something to believe in
Forever faithfully
Your love amazes me

John Berry

(sometimes somebody else says it better)

HAPPY Birthday HONEY... I love YOU forever!

(please forgive me... these photos were on the computer and I couldn't resist)

UTES win again!

One step closer to the National Championship game???

Adam took Braydon to the Utah vs. Weber State game last night.  Braydon was so excited he couldn't stop talking about it.  Boy am I glad he has now "experienced" a Utah game... don't know if I could have survived another question.    "Mom, how big is the stadium?" ... "Mom, the stadium is under the U on the mountain, right? ...  "How are we going to get up the mountain? ... "the train can't go up that far, can it?" ... "how long is a college football game?" ... "How long does it take to get to Salt Lake?" ... "How far is it from the train to the stadium?" ... "Mom, when are we leaving?"... " Mom, when are we leaving?" ... "Mom, when are we leaving?"... "Mom, why does dad keep telling me to shut my trap?"  

Braydon, I love you so much and I am so glad that you and your dad had a good time!

The LAST soccer game of the season!



Braydon and Carson played on the same soccer team this year.  I decided to play Carson up and put him with the 6 and 7 years olds ...  having them on two separate teams was killer last year, too many games and practices.  They had a great time playing together and are SO sad that the season is over. 

Thanks Mark and Ann for being the best coaches EVER ... see you in the Spring!

Totally BORED ...

Adam and the boys went to Franklin to watch his nephew play in the homecoming football game ... I didn't feel good about taking the sicks boys so I stayed at home. The same home I have been stuck in all day with sick boys. I am BORED!!! I just stumbled across ... yes, I am a total nerd sitting here by myself, laughing out loud at these pictures. Cheap entertainment.

It is kind of scary how close one of these actually looks like my high school photo... holy hair!

Adam is going to think I am so hot!

Remembering two Gentle GIANTS

This past weekend Ty Detmer showed, once again the caliber of person and leader he is in honoring two of his former lineman and friends by hosting a charity dinner and sporting clay tournament in their behalf.   

Kent Griffith - BYU 1990 

Bryan May #72 and Kent Griffith #63, both were apart of the offensive line that blocked for TY as he accomplished something that no other player has done in the history of BYU...  
WIN THE HEISMAN!!  If you were LUCKY enough to know either Bryan or Kent, you knew how proud they were to be able to block for Ty.    

Missy and her "Fantastic Four"

  Kent and Brian left this earth too soon.  The charity is raising funds for these two young families.  At the charity dinner, Ty, with a tear in his eye, shared with us how privileged he felt to now "have their backs" for all the times they had his on the field.

Adam and Reno Mahe

We were grateful to have the chance to be apart of this event.  Adam was able to go clay shooting on Friday afternoon with many former BYU players.  Many of them he knew and others he got to know for the first time.   It was embarrassing to have Reno Mahe, which has never shot a gun; point out to Adam that he was putting the wrong ammunition in his gun.  (oops)

Adam with Rob Morris and Chad Lewis

 Adam met up with an old friend, Chad Lewis that he hasn't seen for years.  It was fun to reminisce.   Adam did hold his tongue... being the only UTE in the bunch, most of the guys there were bigger than him... and they all had guns.    

Adam with his dad and sisters; Lisa, Missy and Katie

Friday evening they held a charity dinner at Sundance.  We were both able to attend it along with Adam's dad, and sisters.  It was great to be able to be there and support Missy and the kids.  They have sacrificed so much and really deserved this great evening in their honor.  Adam, almost spent $1,000 on a Heisman signed football helmet during the live auction... 
good thing he got outbid.  

Adam and Ty Detmer

It was a great weekend and we thank Ty for being a good friend to 
Kent and Bryan when their families need it most. 
And Adam wants you all to know that even though he didn't get to 
tackle a Heisman trophy winner on the field, 
he got to finally put his arms around one. 

Ty with Missy and Stacey after they led the team out

Saturday Ty asked Missy and Stacey to lead the team out on the field with him.  It was great to see both of them in Kent and Bryan's jerseys.   Missy was so excited; we didn't think they were going to get her off the field. 

Go UTES!!! 
(Amy got home from the game and the boys wouldn't even hug here because she had this shirt on)

Boys In MY House

This poem absolutely describes my life. I had to post it.

There are boys in my house – and Spiderman shoes
And 200 papers in various blues.
They have cars on their shirts and frogs on their hats
There's a glove and a ball and a red plastic bat.
There's dirt on a face and a smudge on a nose;
Grass stains on knees and sand between toes.
There's bathtime at night with bodies to scrub,
And when we're all done there is dirt in the tub!
There's bandaids and bruises and curious bumps,
There's smiles and laughter and sometimes there's grumps.
There's odors most icky; there's boogers so green
There's more yucky things than I'll ever get clean.
There's piles of laundry; there's stories at night;
There's bedtime and bathtime and dinnertime fights.
Sometimes there are bugs, and sometimes there are frogs;
Sometimes they are lions, or dinos, or dogs.
There are cute little vests and darling neckties
Dragged right through the mud – oh what a surprise!
There's running and climbing and jumping and falling
And laughing and crying and hugging and brawling
And rolling and losing and finding and creeping
And whining and stealing and sometimes there's sleeping.
There's tantrums and time outs and extra loud noise –
There's love in my house shaped like four little boys....
and one BIG one. (smiles)
