Can I just say right here I really hate the Mall. Why do you have to go to the mall to see Santa, surely there must be an easier way. I tried so hard to avoid the mall and now I was going to have to go back another day! So today we decided for try number two (well actually three thanks to the big snowstorm on Saturday) as we were driving over to South Towne I heard on the radio that they were having a concert there right then. There was no way I was going to that mall during some concert so we decided to go over to Fashion Place Mall instead. It was great we waited for one person in front of us to see Santa. I think I might be done with South Towne. Anyways here are some pictures I took, since I am way too cheap to buy any. Unfortunately they only let you take two of your own pictures. Maybe next year Kyanna won't cry.

9. For my brothers, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law who have become great friends even though that hasn't always been the case, I am talking strictly about my brothers here.
10. Lastly I am thankful for vacations becuase without these I would for sure go insane!

I never really was a big football fan before I met Brett. O.k. actually I think growing up I maybe watched part of a football game at the most. My family just wasn't in to football. Then I went to Snow College I went to a few of the games not because I wanted to watch football but more because well what else are you going to do down there. Then I went to the University of Utah I probably went to maybe 2-3 games but it was never my choice I was always invited and only went for the social aspect I would never have been able to tell you what was going on.
Then I met Brett and his family and well to but it mildly Brett, his dad, and his brothers can be considered football freaks (seriously ask them any statistic and they will know the answer). At first I really didn't know it was as bad as it was. Oh sure they went to football games and yes I went mostly because I liked Brett and I wanted to impress him but I had no idea that it was like it was. I should have known since Brett worked for the football team, but what can I say I was football naive. Anyways what I am trying to say it that I really could have cared less about football. But now after being married to Brett for 5 1/2 years and being around his family I have really become to appreciate the game of football. Brett has taught me soooo much about the game. You know this may sound dumb but I really think that you have to be smart to really understand and appreciate the game of football. It is such a strategic game. A game of war. I am no were near understanding all of football, but I love to watch it and I love to learn about it.
That being said I have really come to enjoy going to all of the home games this year. It has been so much fun. So many close games that came right down to the end. It was fun and exciting. So I posted a video of all the fans running onto the field when Utah beat BYU last night. I think it is cool to watch. And I also posted some pictures.

Then we had another Halloween Party on Monday night with my parents and my brother's family. The kids dressed up again which they love and I love because then I actually feel like I am getting good use out of the costumes that I bought instead of just one night. Anyways here is a picture of all the Grand kids from my side. Which consists of my two kids and my nephew Greyden!

Sorry about the messy bathroom we are in the middle or remodeling it.
About a week ago we decided to have a picnic up in the canyons and look at the leaves turning colors. Well did you know that there are no picnic areas up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Well there isn't. So we decided to try Big Cottonwood Canyon. Oh there are lots of picnic areas but each on there cost 6$ I am sorry that is ridiculous. By the time we decided to just eat at one it was getting dark and way too cold to stay long. So don't tell anyone but we didn't pay!
Last Saturday we (and when I say we I mean Brett) decided to sell his car that we have had for less than a year. But it was time it needed four new tires, a new windshield, and well it was time to register it, so I guess this was our way of avoiding all that. Plus it was a huge gas guzzler. The good new is that we got exactly what we paid for it. On Tuesday Brett bought a 93 Honda Civic which is much nicer than this car and gets much better gas mileage.
Well that is pretty much it just wanted to give a few small updates. Oh and by the way I am pregnant.

They loved this jumping pillow and it was nice because the had a little one for little kids so Kyanna actually had fun on it too.
Kyanna of course is holding her hands out for me apparently she wasn't too thrilled about the pumpkin princess!
It was fun to see Will and Cole get along so well and have so much fun. And apparently they loved the pumpkin princess and the pumpkin coach!

Real quick here are some pictures from Will's Birthday. I think that he had a really fun day. In the morning we gave him the present from us, which was a bicycle. Then he had his friends party. Now considering that we are the sunbeam teachers, I am not sure why we subjected ourselves to these little monsters during the week. Seriously Sunday is enough. No I am really just kidding it was fun to have some fun with them and not have to tell them to be quiet, sit-down, or listen to the teacher. Then that night we had a little family party. It was a fun and exhausting day!
