Jazz vs. Bucks

Last night we had free tickets to go see the Jazz vs. Bucks. Not the most exciting game ever, but we had good seats. The Jazz won, and NBA games are always a good time! Pretty sure my parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves also (mostly because the company was amazing). My mom made some crude comments about the Jazz bear, pretty sure Tyler swore once or twice, I overate, and my dad gave us his trademark look of disapproval at least half a dozen times. So, all in all, I guess it was a pretty routine outing for our family.

I loves me some cotton candy!

Thanksgiving Weekend 2010

The weekend started out with a 5k run out in Draper on Thanksgiving morning. It was Mom's first race ever, and it was my dad's first race since his open heart surgery in April. My dad had a little trouble getting dressed for the event, as you can see, but other than that they both killed it!
It was only 9 degrees outside on Thursday morning, so we had to dress as warm as possible. We ran with handkerchiefs around our faces because the air was too cold to breath. I literally had an icicle in my hair when the race was finished!
Thursday afternoon the Jamie Bricco family rolled into town. Oh my gosh! Laying down with a sleeping baby is the best thing in the world! I swear I could sniff Keira's head all day long. I was so glad to meet her finally. She is so sweet and has the cutest laugh and smile!
Thaiya gets more beautiful every time I see her! Bradlee was SOOO glad to have Thaiya for the weekend. She had been talking about it for weeks. Thaiya was a super good sport and spent lots of time doing things with Bradlee. Bradlee cried for about two hours when they left because she wanted to go home with "her" Thaiya.
I think it is awesome that Jaiden and Thaiya are so close with their grandparents. It is pretty special.
Look at the smile on that baby! Bradlee is looking a little rugged in this picture, but I just had to post this picture of Keira!
Tyler and Jamie...REPRESENT!
Did I mention that they are pretty close? Those two are constantly trying to spoon with each other.
Brock loved having some boys to play with. Jaiden is really good with the kids and they all love him. Brock and Jetrin only got in a couple of "altercations". Other than that, they had a really good time together. We could never get a picture of them because they never stayed still...ever.
Saturday morning, Bradlee woke up and clearly had a UTI. Tyler was a good sport and took her to urgent care. I don't think he knew he was going to have to spend 3 hours there holding a cup to try and collect a urine sample from her. Bradlee refused to cooperate for the longest time, and Tyler tried to bribe her with a pink balloon, but Bradlee drives a hard bargain. She wasn't going to do it for any less than FOUR pink balloons.
Princess Keira
We had lots of good food over the weekend. Some of us went to see Harry Potter, and some of us went to see Tangled. We played some games, and just had a lot of fun hanging out together.

Family Pictures 2010

We have never taken family pictures ever since we have been married. I have felt guilty about it, but always rationalized that my kids would never cooperate and it would just be a waste of time and money. Well, my niece, Jordan, takes amazing pictures and my kids love her, so I thought now would be the perfect time to give it a go. The pictures turned out more AMAZING than I had even hoped for. I LOVE Jordan, and I LOVE our pictures!!!

Max's Ordination

Tyler and I were so sad to miss Chase's baptism this weekend, but we were really glad to be in town for Max's ordination. He was ordained to a Priest this Sunday, and Tyler was able to stand in. I wish I could've been there too, but I was home with sick kids. There or not, I am really proud of both Max and Chase. I have the best nephews ever!
