I'm Moving........Blackfoot here I come!!

This last week while I was in Utah, I got a call from my cousin and he offered me a job working for him. He owns a couple of Gyms..so I will be doing something with them. I really didn't ask him exactly what I was going to do..I was just so excited and nervous about taking the job and making another move to another state. I will be living with him and his family. Thank goodness for family. My brother Jeff and his family live about 45 min to an hour away..so I will get to see them often. I am so excited about that. When I asked my nephew josh what he thought about me moving close to them he said it's about time I had an Aunt close to me...it made me want to cry. I called my sister-n-law Jana (josh's mom) she screamed..just the reaction I wanted to hear. I had to put her on speaker phone so we could all here her reaction. I know this seams out of the blue, but it is the right thing to do and I am ready for a change. I am definetly going to miss my girls camp girls and all the new friends I made here, but I will be back for visits. I have already had a few phone calls that ended in tears, but it happens!! This just feels right and I can't wait for my new adventures. You will have to keep up with my blog and her about all the haps in Blackfoot..such a metropolis of a city. Love it! I can't wait to smell those potatoes....ha ha!! I will be out of Washington in 2 weeks...Wish me Luck!!!

The main reason I went to Utah was to see my brothers football team play against BYU. We had such a great time at the game. We were on the first row of the stadium, right on the field. It was awesome. The players ran right by us. To bad they were only about 50 of us. Hey we cheered our little hearts out. We did not come away with a win, but it was such a neat experience for my whole family. We were able to hang out the whole week and we were able to top off the week with the game. Now the weather during the game was very interesting. As you will notice in the pictures all the different kinds of weather we had. It started off cloudy, then the sun poked through, during the 3rd quarter it started to rain, then a little hail, then full on SNOW!! Guess who had on no Rain Gear...ME!! I froze my royal rustifiring ninnies off. It was well worth it.....So much fun....I LOVE FOOTBALL!!!

This is me before the game started...Notice...Just a little cloudy.

Shelby, Angela, and Kylee before the game.
The whole gang...A nice guy from Eastern who was on the Field took the picture for us.
Rocky in #77 he was a captain for the game!!!
This is my nephew Josh and I....He is so cute
Rockafel watching the defense do their thing.
This is Rocky taking the Field after half time!!It is now raining and I am getting soaked. Jeff, Brooke, Branflakes, and I!!! Notice no rain gear, real brilliant on my part. Cute Angela....starting to freeze! Now it's snowing!!Poor Shelby..she couldn't get a fake smile going....Kylee did a little better...they were freezing. Now we have blizzard weather...well pretty close....Roc had to put a towel on his bald head. Not much visibility. Next to none here...by the way I am still at the game. Freezing!!!
Notice after the game the snow stopped, what good timing. I love this picture of Rocky. He is such a stud.

Livin it up in Utah..Like old times!!

I just got back from Utah today. I had such a great time. I was able to see some old friends and hang out with my family. I am a little sad because I forgot to take some pictures of my friends. What was I thinking. I was able to drive around and see the places I used to live and remember old times. There were times when I would pass something that would trigger a memory and I would start laughing..I will bare you all the details because honestly it was probably only funny to me. The best highlights of my week were seeing my friends brooke, sunny and Martin. Of course I didn't take pictures of Sunny and her family or of Martin, I am a little sad...not sure why I didn't think of it. I will find some old ones and post them later. I met Sunny and Martin my last two years in Utah. I believe I was Sunny's VT and she became a really good friend of mine. I am very thankful for her friendship and am glad that we can still kick of after not seeing each other for about 2 years. By the way her little girl is so cute. Martin otherwise known has MP is one of my good guy friends...he is trying to get into dental school..I wish him luck, I am sure he will. My friend Brookie was the first girl I met in Utah when I moved their 10 years ago and we have remained best friends ever since. I love her to death!! We have literally been through everything together.

I actually met Sunny, Her husband James, Martin, Keola and his wife Asha for dinner at Sam Hawks( I think that is the name of it) in Provo. I hadn't seen most of them in 4 years so it was good to hang out and reminisce...I love all those guys and hopefully I will be able to see them more.

I stayed with my sister and my cousin..I had a blast with them. I love that they are all grown up and can hang with us, laugh with us and get absolutely no sleep with us. There are so many stories, but you had to be there or they won't make any sense. Lets just say we had a blast.

Brooke and I were able to get together quite a bit...she came to the game with me. This is her and I at her boyfriends house!! This is my uncle Doug and my sisters Angela and Kylee and my cousin shelby.

Me, Kylee, and Shelby before the game. My cousin Joey and his daughter Maylie after the game.
My uncle Doug and my Grandma riding a tandem bike...gotta love it.

Off to Utah!!!

So I am going to Utah today!! I am so excited to see some long lost friends!!! I haven't been there in 4 years!! I am going back to my old stomping grounds...I always hated it when my dad would say that, but there are no better words. My brother Rocky's team will be playing BYU so I am so stoked for that. All my cousins who live there are going to the game and some of our friends made the trip to Utah to cheer on Rocky. I would love it if they upset BYU....Hey you never know...It could happen.


Pneumonia..Not stopping #77

So I went to my brothers game....I know a big shocker!! He was very sick with Pneumonia!! I was a little worried about him. He had to do nebulizer treatments when he wasn't on the Field and he was also given an inhaler to help him breathe. He played very well and they won 35-14. It was a must win game. Hopefully the big lug will get some rest this week.

This is Rocky after the Game!!! Rocky, one of his coaches and some teammates. The guy right next to him..#24 went to Sumner high school!!
After they win a game the sing the schools fight song...Rocky is on the far left!!
This is us during half time. It was a beautiful day about 65 degrees!!! Much better than Sumner!! Then I had to return home to the crappy weather!!!

Eastern Football!!!

So on Saturday I made the trek to Eastern Washington for my brother Rocky's game. Of course I have plenty of stories for you. First off we realized that our seats were not together and of course there is one that is all by itself...not with in talking range of the other seats. So I took one for the team and sat there. Then I realized that I looked pathetic because I brought my own treats...so there I sat eating my treats from my purse all by myself. Then I finally got my brothers attention who was about 40 feet from me and I was trying to tell him that there we seats by me and to come and sit by me. Well I see him and his wife start laughing so I turn forward and the stinkin mascot's hand is in my face...so I jump and then give him a high five. I turn back around to talk with my bro...using sign language...and they are still laughing. I then feel something on my shoulder and the mascot (swoop) is sitting next to me with his arm around me. A little awkward, I didn't know what to say so I just said hey...your fly is down!!! Everyone around me was laughing..I think I turned a little red. I am sure everyone thought I was fake talking with some imaginary friend in the audience...so I wouldn't look like the loser who goes to football games by herself. My sister-n-law came and sat by me for the 2nd half. At least someone loves me. Anyways my bro's team lost 21-28...first lost of the season. So they are now 3 and 1. Next weeks game is against there rival Montana...I am so excited!! Too bad it isn't on TV...I will be listening and going nuts...like always.

This is the baby of the family Hunter and I before the game started!!! Just so you know my brothers can never make a nice face in a picture!!! This is Lindsay (my sister-n-law) and I during the game...having a little photo shoot. Apparently I can't make nice faces either!!!
This is the O-Line taking the Field for warm-ups. My brother is in the front, he is number 77, but he turned so you can only see the one 7...he is on the right side of the picture.
