"And cheer the cougars of BYU!"

What a sad day, that fateful Thursday in October in Texas. We mournfully watched the bottom line on ESPN, slowly the other score climbed, and BYU, yours did not. Hope sprang alive in the 3rd when we saw a touch down had been made, but as the seconds on the clock began to tick away, so did the hope that we could finish this game the way we wanted. So, goodbye BCS bowl game, goodbye longest winning streak record, but never goodbye to the cougars! We still love you! We still cheer for you! On to a great rest of the season!

The Birthday Boy!

Our baby Lucas is 2! It just seemed like we celebrated his 1st birthday 2 months ago. That feeling probably comes from this being the only time we have celebrated 2 consecutive birthdays for a member of our family in the same apartment, so there is a little de javu going on. Anyways, after watching Jurassic Park a few weeks ago, our boys are now dino-crazed and so I made him a cute dinosaur cake. Thankfully, I had gotten to the end of my 1st Trimester for his birthday to have a few ounces of energy to make this cake, or it would've been store bought. He loved opening his presents, but lamented opening the one from my sister that was wrapped in awesome sesame street paper, he did not want to ruin it. He thought the pictures of the characters on the paper was his present. Thank you Luke for being such a good boy, and waiting until just a week or so before your 2nd birthday to really get good at the tantrums, especially in public. But you are sweet and you always make up for it by asking for many hugs and kisses and wondering if I'm "sad?...tummy?". (His way of recognizing that mom isn't feeling her best right now in the early stages of pregnancy.) We love you Luke!
