Much better than last time

Last home game was downright AWFUL! It was the worst blowout. I can't even write anymore about it b/c i'll get worked up.  We were so fed up with BYU that we decided to sell our BYU vs. UTAH tickets. I am glad we did because now we have extra cash for Christmas presents!

Look how happy Adam was before the BYU vs. TCU game started. We should have sold these tickets too!

Anyways, the game today was actually GOOD! We were very happy with it (except for Max Hall throwing two interceptions)

We were in the Papa John's section

This was a great game to end on! We will be watching the Utah game on t.v. It is better this way, because if they suck we can just turn the t.v. off.

We went to The Italian Place afterwards and enjoyed this philly steak sandwich. YUM

Then we were in the mood for a chocolate melting cake (anyone who has been on a cruise knows what I am talking about). This was no where near as tastey as the cruise's cake, yet good nevertheless.

Early Thanksgiving and other family fun! :)

Todd is my favorite uncle! I love this guy. He is so much fun. I want to go back to Maine. I've already been 3 times.

Brandon playing with Hailey and Cole. Hailey is a doll baby. She is so cute.

The boys watching football while waiting for the pizza. We went to my grandma's rehab center and had a family party.

Todd made a cute video of grandma throughout the years with all her children + grandkids.

We had to watch it twice. Everyone wanted to pause at every picture and point everyone out.

We went to Walmart to pick out our 5 dollar gifts for our Thanksgiving party, since we had all the family together. Obviously the white elephant gift is for Christmas, but this was the first time in 7 years that all the family was together.

Adam and I are kids at heart. We love to play and act silly. Adam almost ran me over with this.

This was my $5 gift

Can you guess what my mother's gift was? lol

Yup, that's my mom for ya!

My hot husband enjoying his Thanksgiving dinner.

                                                              Me and Lee

All the siblings

All the sibling's children. Yup, I am on my tippy toes.

This was the gift Adam opened. Everyone got a kick out of it because we are still considered the "newlyweds"

Brandon ended up with my mother's gift. It was a huge joke. He worried his mother a little bit because he fought for them.

Adam and Joseph enjoyed playing badmitten afterwards. I don't know who ended up with that gift.

Honour society and donuts

I love that my relatives from Maine are visiting. They do not have Krispy Kreme out there, so we decided to do a donut run a couple nights ago. We have been lucky the last two times we have gone there, their free donut sign has been on. SCORE! Yes, more please :)

Adam took this picture of me stuffing my face. I LOVE my krispy kreme donuts. I had to make sure I got all the one's I liked. Don't let this little body fool you. I eat like a tank! I have eaten 7 assorted donuts in one sitting before. Yes, I have a problem. ha. I need to get back to the gym. I was doing so well before Halloween and all our company arrived. Excuses, excuses I know. It doesn't help that I am in the middle of writing a 15 page research paper right now. Speaking of school, I only have like five more weeks. I am super stoaked. I got a letter in the mail a few days ago, from BYU,  letting me know that I am SMART! Yes! ha. Who would have thought?!? This is what it said:

Dear member Elect,

Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that, by placing in the top 15% of your class at Brigham Young University, you are invited to join Golden Key International Honour Society.

Golden Key International Honour Society is the world's premier collegiate honor society, with nearly 2 million members and over 375 chapters across the United States and around the world. A one-time, $70 membership fee entitles Golden  Key member access to a vast array of benefits including over $500,000 in member-only undergraduate and graduate scholarships, discounted study-abroad programs, exclusive internships and job opportunities, as well as leadership and networking opportunities worldwide.

Membership is by special invitation to students in all fields and areas of study. BYU has recognized you as one of the top-performing students in your class. Congratulations on your academic achievement and earning this distinct honor. We look forward to welcoming you as BYU's newest member of Golden Key International Honour Society.

They are holding a member recognition event for this years's new Golden Key members on December 1, 2009 at 5:30pm in the Wilkinson Center, Room 3220 (This means my parents might be able to go to it, if I join )

I haven't decided yet if I am going to graduate school, so I am still deciding if this would be worth doing. $70 is a lot for a starving student! I am leaning more towards yes, just because it would look good on my resume.

Yay for family/friend time :]

We had a fun weekend. We were able to spend a little time with Adam's best friend Cameron, and his wife Celine. We went out to breakfast, at IHOP, on Saturday. We all enjoyed their stuffed french toast. It's the only thing Adam and I ever get there.

Then Adam and I drove up to Salt Lake to spend time with Adam's family. His grandma isn't doing too well. She fell, and hasn't been eating. Adam's dad flew up from CA, because she might not live too much longer. All the brothers drove or flew down to be with her, which was nice. They took some nice family pics, and then we all went out to dinner at the Market Street Grill. We all got the Prime Rib special, which was delicious! It came with haagen daz ice cream =) I chose their carmel ice cream and fell in love with it. It is almost as good as their creme brulee flavor.

Cameron, Celine, Aaron, and Kaylee came over later that night and we played a fun board game called Compatibility. Cameron and Celine won (barely) ha. It's fun because you have to think about what your spouse would put in each category, with a random set of cards that have silly pictures on them. Our favorite was the picture of the old man with a hairy chest.

We played some Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour afterwards. Not only am I bad at taking pictures, I am bad at deleting them too. I only took a couple pics and two very short videos, cuz my memory card was full.

I stole this picture of Celine's blog. I really belt it out when I sing. It can get pretty exciting.

We went out to lunch at Cafe Rio on Monday with Cameron and Celine.

My relatives from Maine and Arizona are coming tomorrow. I am soooo excited!!! We are celebrating an early Thanksgiving with everyone on Saturday.

I never

I never EVER take pictures of Adam at any of his soccer games. I have learned that this isn't such a bad thing, because I don't know how to work my camera. Look how horrible these shots are. It didn't help that the lighting sucked in there.

Adam in his Manchester United jersey (he loves that team). The last picture freaks me out; his face is distorted. You are probably wondering why I even bothered posting these pictures. Well, first of all, it reminds me that I need to take the time to figure out the different settings on my camera. The second reason is that these are the only pictures I have of my baby playing soccer, and it brings back memories. He scored two goals this game, but of course I failed to get pictures of it. We are graduating and this was the last game of the season. We will never have this opportunity again :( Sad day.

Celebrating Halloween with Pie and Neon Trees

I started Halloween out right by making this homemade pumpkin pie. It was even better than last years! I tried out a new recipe, and I was very happy with it. Adam took a slice before I could get a picture of it. ha.
click here for recipe
I made two pumpkin pies last year.

For a no fail pie crust recipe click here

Here is our doorstep display.

We visited my grandma in the rehab center, and brought her a slice of pie, before we took off to the Neon Trees concert. She ate one of those pies last year all by herself. She has a major sweet tooth.

Here we are waiting in the line to get into Velour.

The decked out stage. It is so small in there! Glad we got there at a good time. We were in the front row =)

Tyler Glenn

Chris Allen

The only two people I know in the band. We grew up in the same ward, and I was good friends with their younger brothers. They put on a good show. Adam and I rocked out like no other. Some of the other bands were pretty good too.
