Lots and lots of Snow

Winter came early to Utah!! A November snow storm dumped 7 inches one week and the next another 13!!! And cold, brrrrrrrrr.

The blocked kick heard throughout Utah

I finnaly got my way and went to the last Utah football game. It was against BYU. It was supper cold but a lot of fun.

After the blocked punt that won us the game I even got to storm the field for the first time ever! Wahoo! Go Utes!

Over the Hill! Or at lease climbing to the Top

I turned another year older. I swear I woke up this morning to a gray eye brow! Seriously! My gray hair line as officially moved to the bang area, and will no longer be hidden by the bi monthly coloring job.

But besides that I had a good day. JD and I had a yummy dinner at my favorite Rodizio Grill and then spent the night a hotel near the Gateway. I wasn't feeling too well, and ended up staying awake most of the night coughing, so the next day the family let me take a 2 hour nap. You know you're old when you are thrilled to be able to take a nap in the middle of the day.

Later that night I blew out the candles on my apple pie and we munch down the carmel apples that JD and the kids made me.

Thanks guys for a great day!

The Boy Who Lived!

I was so super excited when JD surprised me and my kids with premiere tickets to the new Harry Potter movie. We were able to see it earlier before the midnight showing. I'm pretty sure I was more excited than the kids. We arrived 2 hours early. So we wandered the mall, ate ice cream, looked at the real owl that was walking around and played inside the children's museum for a bit. Then we grabbed our popcorn and drinks and headed to the movie!

I just love the world the Rawlings has created.

Happy Halloween!

We battle the rain and cold to trick or treat in this year. The kids are all older now and we were able to cover a lot more ground this year in less time. They made out like bandits since the rain kept more people off the streets, lots of houses gave them handfuls of goodies.

I won! I won!

I was so excited when I recieved an email that I had wone "Her Secret Symmetry" by Audrey Neffenegger. I loved her book "The Time Traveler's Wife" and couldn't wait to read this for a spooky Halloween read. It came one day before Halloween, and turned out to not be as spooky as I was hoping. Actually it didn't turn out to be as good as I was hoping either.

Sick kidos

The week before Halloween was rough for the Rex's. More throwing up than one mom can handle.

All my bowls were divided out amoungst the sicko's. They were carried around and slept with by the whole clan. Good times! Thanks ward party for the extra special treat.

They finally did what we said!

JD cleaned out the hot tub....Well, he turned his duties over to Avery and Halle. I assumed he gave them instructions on how to do it. Little did I know they use dish soap to clean the bottom of the empty hot tub. And a lot of it. Which they didn't rinse off.

So, when JD filled the hot tub up with water and turned on the jets, here's what we got.
