This week has been a great week! Not only did the Ute's win their game, but Lance (my nephew) got baptized, and my sweetheart still thinks I'm the best. What more could I ask for? LOL No really this has been a great week! I learned a few new recipes that I am loving, went to Roberts and made some new crafts, and spent a lot of time with Dave's family which is always great! I have so much fun with Dave's family!
Bric (my brother-in-law) and Dave went to the BYU game on Saturday and they had a blast. Bric made sure that Dave had a BYU shirt to wear, so he didn't stick out too bad with those BYU fans. ;) They crack me up. They are such good friends, yet Bric is a die hard BYU fan and Dave is a true Utah fan. They loved the game and especially loved the guy sitting next to them that kept yelling at Bric to move. (You gotta love those cougar fans!)
On Saturday Lance, got baptized. He was so excited and he did great! He had the missionary discussions for the last month and he made the decision to become a member of the church. When I was with him today I asked him how it felt to be Mormon (just joking with him) and he said, so enthusiastically, "It feels awesome!" He is such a great kid and I just love him so much. He has so much love in his heart that it amazes me. I have never met a better big brother then Lance. He's so kind and sweet and also a great football player! Sunday was his confirmation and then we headed to Lou and Paula's for dinner. All of Dave's family was there which so fun!
My nephew Skyler (Melissa's son) is such an amazing kid! He makes me smile from ear to ear every time I see him. Today he really put a smile on my face. Dave and I were sitting upstairs and something about Germany was brought up. He looked at me and said, "That's where I want to serve my mission." It was so cute. He's 14. He told me all about how he is going to take German in school, so the church will send him there when he goes. I told him that if he went on a mission that Dave and I will come pick him up where ever he goes. He smiled. You have to understand what a stud this kid is. Last night he was standing on the corner with all of his friends at about 10pm. I drove by rolled down my window and yelled at him to embarrass him. It didn't work. As I waved at him and yelled, "Skyler! Skyler! Hi! I love you!!" He just waved back and yelled, "I love you too!" I seriously love that kid. I can't describe what an amazing spirit he has. I loved that boy the moment I met him and he will always hold a very special place in my heart. He brings so much happiness to Dave and I, and he will never understand that. When I met him, it was like we had always known each other. I think after the 2nd time I met him he was telling me that he would love it if I was his aunt. He's just my bud and I'm so glad he's my nephew!
Sorry about all my random thoughts tonight, I just am writing about all I think about :) The picture of Dave and I was taken this summer by my amazing sister Jamie! She had a fun little photo shoot with the 2 of us and took some great pictures! When I get more I'll post them!
I hope you all have a great week and get ready for not only fall, but winter. Wednesday it's supposed to snow and the high is only 36 degrees. Oh I'm not ready to drive in the winter this soon!! I'll talk to you all later!
