TCU....what a mess

It took me a while to write about this game.  By this point I am guessing most of you saw the out come.  Utah was beat, not beat but trampled.  Frankie and I left by the end of the 3rd quarter.  However we started the day with the best intentions.

Here we are in the car on the way to the tailgate.  It was extremely early.  My husband dragged me out of bed by 8 am so that we could be there for ESPN Game Day.  I still have no idea what that actually means...really early tailgating I guess and lots of walking around.

Frankie in front of the ESPN sign.

Lots of people were there to support TCU.  I liked their purple flags.

At this point I am freezing.  However my husband would not walking back to the tailgate area because we had to wait for some guy to put an animal on his head.  Ok, ok I guess this ESPN guy puts the head of the mascot on to show his prediction of who was going to win the game.  He put on the TCU frog head and they won, so good for him.

Alex is here!

After a bumpy flight and an hour delay Alex made it.  Here is just a quick update of the things we have accomplished in 2 days.

We met Henry and Max at Incredible Pizza, that new place out in Draper.  Can I just tell you that Max is one of my very favorite people!  He was so great with Alex.  Alex thinks the world of him.  On a side note, his parents are two of my favorite people too!  After we left we went to Nordstrom to buy Alex his very first pair of Chuck Taylors.  He was very proud to say that he now has the same shoes and Henry and Max.

Frankie and Alex in the go carts.

One of the only things Alex wanted to do while he was here was to play in the snow.  Thankfully it snowed, not just snowed but dumped.  So Frankie and Alex had a "snow day".  I took pictures from the inside of the house while sipping hot coffee.

Alex sat down and wrote what might be his last letter to Santa Claus.  He just turned 7 and I don't know how much longer he will believe the story.  On the list, Starwars Legos and an Ipod.

We finished the day by playing Mario Kart at Bobby and Andrea's house.  Yes, his new shoes are on.

Alex in 5 Days!!

My cute husband can barely sit still.  His little (not so little, now 7 years old) boy gets here on Friday.  We have a whole week with him and have so many fun things planned.  This will be Alex's first time flying to Utah from California by himself.  Wish us luck!

The Rat

Sadly enough we have a rat in our home, oh but don't worry, it is dead.  How do we know this?  We can smell it! After our Halloween party (pictures coming soon) we noticed a strange smell in our basement.  Actually not in the basement, but in the stair down to the basement.  It wasn't bad at first, but a couple of days later it is horrible.  The dead rat must have gotten trapped in the wall and died.  I cant believe it!  My dad, who loves me, is going to cut a hole into our new walls to do some hunting.  I am terrified for him.  Dont worry, I will not post pictures!
