I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Brett and I drove to Thornton, CO and spent the Holiday with his parents! We enjoyed a delicious feast with the Carlson family (I think there were 50 or more people there!!) and then we went and saw the movie Australia. I definitely recommend seeing it, even though it is THREE hours long, it's so good and definitely a chic flick. Brett and Craig didn't know that's what they were in for, so they were a little disappointed, haha! We spent the rest of the weekend shopping and lounging around. Brett and I pretty much knocked out our Christmas shopping in two days!! I've never done that before. We are practically done and it's such a relief!

It snowed while we were there....finally, it feels like Winter!! But then our drive home today took us 9 1/2 hours due to the snow! (usually it's a 7 1/2 hr drive). For about an hour and a half straight we were driving 5-10 miles an hour....shoot me in the face, I was cursing the snow! Just when I thought I was so happy to see it! Ha!

But we are home and now have the Christmas Holiday to look forward to!

Family, Friends, and Football

Most of you know last weekend I was in Colorado for Brett's game on Saturday against CSU, and then we both stayed for John's game against the Broncos on Sunday! It was a weekend of family, friends, and football.
One of my best friends from college, Karah, was able to come to the CSU game. We played volleyball at OSU together and hadn't seen each other for almost 2 years. Her and her fiance just moved back to Colorado so they came to the game. She finally got to meet Brett and I finally got to meet her fiance Joseph! It was so fun to see her:)
My mom was able to come to the game too!! Love her:) Justin (my little brother) had a wrestling tournament in Denver so my dad was watching him. But my parents, brother, Brett's parents, Kim, and Brett and I were able to meet up for dinner after the game.

Brett's dad, Craig, had the honor of carrying out the Alumni Flag on Saturday's game against CSU, leading the team on to the field. He was a little nervous; thought for sure he'd lose his pants, trip and fall, drop the flag, or even worse, pass out while running the length of the field. He did great though....his pants stayed up, he didn't trip, and even better, he didn't pass out! Here are some pics of Craig in action.
The Broncos vs. Dolphins game on Sunday was a blast. It was a little weird to be in the Broncos stadium and to be cheering for the Dolphins though. My whole life I've been a Broncos fan and I never thought I'd be in their stadium, cheering against them. Only for you John! It was a close game, but the Dolphins pulled through.

Crazy Broncos fan!!!

We got to hang with John for a bit after the game!

One of Brett's teammates Reed White, and his wife Hailey, threw an awesome Halloween party Thursday night. Here are some fun pics of all of the costumes.

Thanks Reed and Hailey for such a great party!
