Las Vegas Bowl 2009

BYU played Oregon State in the Las Vegas Bowl Game last week. Yes, they played my Alma Mater, but of course I was wearing blue! BYU came away with the win. We were all freezing the entire game (as you can see we are all bundled up), but it was still fun!This was the only picture I got of the game....oopsBrett's dedicated and supportive fam.....they've been at every game!!! Crazy fans.....
We had a great time in Vegas, and the game was a great ending to a great career for Brett. The day after the game we headed to Colorado to spend Christmas with the Denneys!!!

Winter Wonder Land

It's a Winter Wonder Land in Alpine! Last night it snowed like crazy, and we woke up to even more this morning as it just kept coming down. I love it!

This week we will start moving into our new apartment. Brett is OFFICIALLY DONE WITH SCHOOL!! Congrats to him! We have no idea what our plan is now that he's done, but we found a place in Lehi that is close to work for me and only required a 6 month lease. So I guess we will be around for at least that long. We leave for the Vegas Bowl this Friday, from there head to Denver for Christmas, to Alamosa for New Year's, and won't be back until the first week of January. I'm soo ready for a nice break! Then it's crunch time to get settled into our apartment and ready for this baby to come. Did I mention I'm nowhere near ready?

As Brett has been finishing up with final projects and taking his LAST couple of finals, we've still found some time for Holiday Parties and fun with friends....

Loving this time of year!

Turkey Day and the Rivalry Game

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had a delicious feast here in Alpine with Brett's parents, Kimi, and Traci and Collin. We spent all morning preparing the food, ate, and then spent the afternoon and evening laying around, watching football, playing rock band and playing mariokart! Everything was just as Thanksgiving should be!

Saturday was the big BYU vs Utah Rivalry Game. I can't tell you how happy and relieved I was that it was a home game! BYU pulled off the win in overtime, 26-23! Of course it was a nail biting, nerve-wracking, and highly emotional game. (Just as all BYU vs Utah games are!)

It ended with thousands of people rushing the field. Why Sheri, Kim, and I thought it was a good idea to run out there as well??? Not sure, we nearly got trampled.

#92 Warming up. Loved the old school Royal Blue Jerseys!

Seniors...Matt, Jan, & Brett

Matt, Andrew, & Brett

Brett's parents, and his sister Kim, have been coming to BYU games since their oldest son Ryan played at BYU in 1998. This was their last game at Lavelle Edwards least until their grandsons are playing for BYU in 15 or so years.

Three seasons ago I was watching Brett play as the twitterpated girlfriend:) Last season, I was the newlywed wife, watching more diligently and with a little more worry. And this season, there's been two of us cheerin' for and the lil' guy in the belly.

It's been a fun three years of football. I've loved watching Brett play and I'm so proud of him and all of his accomplishments! I'm excited to see what this next "season" of life after BYU football brings us!!
