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!

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 Stadium.....at 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 him....me 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!!

Hey! I sent Brett a text the other day about a small birthday party i'm trying to get together for Chase and he never answered back so I don't know if he got it or if that was his way to ignore or what! Anyway we would love it if you guys could come, it's been forever since we've seen you. But it is on this Thursday the 10th, it will just be a couple of hours probably around 7. Let me know what you think! Just shoot me a text or somethin. My number is 208-709-3058
