Skyler has been playing on a 5 on 5 basketball intermural team for the college and his team is amazing. They have had games every tuesday and thursday night for the last couple months and his team has blown every other team out of the water...they have won every game by at least 20 points! This last tuesday was the championship game against a team they hadnt played yet and they were supposedly really good so they were a little nervous going into it, but they ended up beating the team like 72 to 50 or something like that. They did awesome! Ironically the team name of the team he plays on is TEXAS! We can truly say TEXAS is the best! (no pun intended...ok maybe a little :) Way to go team TEXAS!

Nate got a big battle wound about a week ago...the couch go the best of him. It is his biggest wound yet so I have to document it.

The house is still coming along good. Everything is happening on the inside now so I dont really have pictures to show. They have finished all the electrical and plumbing and are now starting on the sheet rock!

Baby Blessing

This weekend we made the long trek up to Logan, UT to see my sister's baby (Kylee Noelle Bricker) blessed. We decided to drive up on friday afternoon and stay the night in bountiful with Skyler's Grandparents. We wanted to break up the driving time because that is a far drive for a 10 month old and my 23 year old husband :) On the way up we stopped in American Fork to eat dinner and we were able to go with on of Skylers mission companion and his wife and daughter. His daughter was only a couple months older than Nate so it was fun to see them play and interact! We went to Chilis and the wait was forever long for both a table and food so by the time we left Nate was ready for the hour drive to bountiful. It was fun seeing Skyler's grandparents! His grandma is so cute...she had made cinammon rolls for us and they were hot and ready right we got there because she knows they are Skylers favorite and she gave us two extra for the road! They were so cute with Nate and they were really patient with him even though he tried to destory everything he could reach! Saturday we drove up to Logan and spent the day with my family. We went to lunch and then to an arcade place. It was fun being with my whole family! We are only all together on holidays now since we are all pretty much grown up and living our own lives so I look forward to the holidays so much! I love it when we get together and treasure every moment! Sunday we went to the blessing which was beautiful. Afterwards my sister had a luncheon which was really yummy! We left after that and made the long trek back home! Nate did awesome in the car! I was so proud and thankful! He didnt cry at all the whole way home which was about an 8 hour drive and he was awake from beaver to st. george but he was content just playing and dancing to the songs on the radio.
