Fancy Dance Party

On Saturday morning I told Keegan that he could wear anything he wanted because it wasn't a school day. So he carefully chose his outfit and came parading into our bedroom, checking himself out in the mirror. I took one look at him and tried to contain my laughter. He had carefully chosen a shirt and pants that matched, but the pants were about 1 1/2 inches too short and he had on a short sleeve shirt in the middle of winter. But just to keep warm, he added his cap and mittens. Oh yeah, he also just put some socks on with his Crocs so his feet wouldn't get cold. He knew that he was going to his friends dance party that day and obviously wanted to look special. I asked him if that's what he was going to wear and he said, "Well you know you have to dress fancy when you go to a dance party." It was just so dang cute that I didn't make him change his clothes, like I normally would have. He did look pretty fancy!

I've been looking forward to the season premier of Lost pretty much since last season ended and last night did not disappoint! The hour before was great to catch me up on everything, too. But since I didn't get to see the whole thing, I'm thinking I may have missed a couple of things. Who was the white-haired lady at the end? And when have we seen her before? Is that Faraday's mom? Or am I totally off track? Someone please help!

Go UTES!!!

decked out for the game

showing our Ute spirit in church on Sunday

I'm sure everyone already knows how much we love the Utes, so of course we were looking forward to the Sugar Bowl - although I have to admit that I wasn't really hopeful of being able to pull off an upset against Alabama. We got all geared up for the game and just couldn't believe that we scored in all of our first three possessions! Doug and I were ecstatic! We kept scaring Keegan with our loud screaming and jumping up and down. Eventually Keegan got into it, too. What a victory!!!! That's got to be the best season in Utah football history and then to win against a team like Alabama - we're still on cloud nine :)

New Years Resolutions

this is how i wanted to start the new year. . .

but this is how it happened!

Okay, so I really wanted to start the new year with a bang by getting back to my healthy eating habits that I had totally lost over the holidays. But, guess what? I didn't!!! Pretty much the only things that I've eaten so far this year are delicious morsels of sugary delight! So I decided that I'm going to restart my resolution as soon as all the good stuff is out of my house, (which means after I've eaten it all!) I'll be back on the bandwagon soon, hopefully!
