There is nothing to be ashamed about right! Bad loss, but a good excuse for a get together. Getting together wasn't only for the game, it was also my moms birthday the same day, but what a crummy way to end a HAPPY day!

Game faces, or losing faces? I can't tell.

My dad is what you would call a true blue BYU fan. I think it was the second interception that the U caught, he stood up and said "I'm going home." And he did, he packed up the stuff they brought, packed up my mom and sister, and left. There was no hesitation to finish watching the game!


What a JOKE! On Thursday, we went to see and early showing of Twilight at 7 pm the night before it was actually released for the public! The only problem was, this was the only picture I could capture, as we were standing in this crowded hallway right before you walk into the theater, they announce they won't let any cameras inside the theater! Boy was I MAD! My first thought was to just hid it in one of our trendy large purses, but hey, who knew they were doing purse checks! So I had to run out to the car only to come back and stand in back of the same long line! So this is the only picture I came back with! It's alright, it was worth it for a good movie and good company!

Faculty vs MV B-ball team

Earlier this week Jo was asked to play at meet the team night. They put together a team of faculty and they play b-ball against this years team.

In this picture, he and a 6 ft something teenager crashed on the court getting a little agrssive over the ball. No major injuries though!

His oh so famous PEACE sign, high spirits even though they lost this year.

MV team-20, Faculty-18. Close game.

Huge Post!

If you notice the background, it's Christmas. But those of you who know me, know that it is my favorite holiday, and Christmas can never come too soon. "TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY".

Here are a ton of picutes from the month of October and first of November.

Ciara was baptized and confirmed by Jose on November 1. A long awaited experience!

I just deleted a cute picture of Eva, darn computer! Anyway this is halloween morning, we went up to Shanna's school and paraded around the school with her 2nd graders. Ela and Luke were passing out "high 5's" to all the kids. If you notice below, you can't really tell but Luke is Ela's little side kick. She was Mickey and Luke was Pluto, and Eva Jane was a pumpkin. I was supposed to be a beautiful witch!

Shanna was dressed as a bumble bee, her students call her miss Bumble Bee. And Anna was a hat-less witch.

Jose skipped out of school for a bit to go visit the girls. Ciara was a vampire and Isa was and angel.
Jose and I carved pumkins, and guess whose is who's? Jo was a huge Obama fan this election, so I was watching Rachel Ray one morning and they had celebrity faces that you could print off online and they highlighted Obama on the show, so I printed it off because I knew that he would love it. In the day, it really looked like him, but when it was lit, you couldn't really tell what it was. Mine was a Frankenstein with an underbite of some sort!
Ciara turned 8 on October 12th so the day before we threw her a little Halloween theme party, and all the kids dressed up.

In these two pictures the back ground looks like the house of a cronic smoker, but we don't smoke! We had a fog machine going off trying to set the scary mood!

We had bobbing for apples, painting pumpkins, cup cake decorating, and pin the nose on the pumpkin.
Eva was a cat this night at the party, but about 10 minutes after everyone started she was dead asleep. She couldn't keep her eyes open.
Isa, Ciara, and cousin Alexi

Eva's Best Sunday Dress

I just can't seem to get over how cute her little school girl outfit is. Her knee high tube socks and chubby knees to top it off!

4 Months on October 4th

My baby has just turned 4 months and I can't believe it! My how time flies. We are just begining to see her personality she cries when someone isn't near to talk to her, and she has the cutest smile. She went in for her four month check up and the Doc said we could start feeding her cereal, and as of right now she hates it. She screams the whole time. I guess she will eventually get the hang of it! She also loves to sit up and stand like a big girl. She has this incredibly strong neck so when she lays on the floor, she tries so hard to lift her head up and see what she thinks she is missing out on.

This Picture is of our very first time trying spoon feeding, it wasn't too messy, actually the cleanest the cleanest of all.

Hike to the "Y"

For some odd reason, this morning in bed, JO asked me what I wanted to do today, and my response was to hike the Y. It really wasn't too bad, now that I'm in my comfortable bed at the end of the day. We started about 11 in the morning and after about the first two switch backs my head was pounding from the beating sun. When we finally got to the top, I thought I was going to die! I don't think I would have made it if I had done it right after I had my babe. Guess is just proves how out of shape I am. We took Eva in a little carrier on Jo's chest, making it her first hike ever. As we were hiking, we were talking about when Jose was a wrestler at BYU his coach used to make the wresters run to the top! RUN? I couldn't even make it going at my slowest paced walk!

Lets Catch Up!!

Gosh, its been awhile since I have posted anything and so much has been going on. I've also been recieving threats from a few people for not posting anything new!!
On the fourth of August, JO and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary, and Eva turning 2 months old. I always tell Jose the 2 years can sometimes feel like 40yrs! But over those two years we have definatly learned alot about life and ALOT about each other! Its one thing to learn, and another to comprehend and apply it to your daily life! I always tell JO, "you live and you learn!" Love you BABE!
For our anniversary, we celebrated it in my most favorite vacation place.... the city of sin! None other than Las Vegas! What draws me to this city certainly isn't the gambling (no, really), its the city lights, the shopping, walking the strip, and the crazy people

While in Vegas, we were able to attend one of the best shows in the city, besides any of the Cirque de Soule shows. Anyways, we went and saw Stomp Out Loud. All they do in the show is make music with metal and plastic garbage cans, signs, hub caps, garbage bag, all sorts of things including their feet and hands. The people in this show have this incredible talent for music and beat. The main guy was the most impresive, he was this big white guy, and you could just tell that he could feel the beat. If he would have messed up, then everyone else would have been off. It was amazing to watch. After the show, some of the performers came out the meet the audience and JO jumped in with one of them for a quick pic! He was in more AWW than I was.

But the only bad thing about taking a vacation as a pair, you can never seem to be in the pictures at the same time, for the fear of asking someone in vegas, "can you take a picture of us?" your then expensive piece of electronics has a pair of legs and a new owner. So we settle for seperate pictures.
As we traveled to vegas, we took the girls with us to meet Jo's Mom who then took them with her to spend the week with her in California. As for baby Eva, she was left home with Grandma Bonnett for a few sleepless nights! But Vegas isn't a place where you catch up on sleep, its another place to loose sleep.

That next weekend we blessed Eva Jane on the 10th, but I don't have any pictures of that day at the moment but I will post them later. As for that special day, she recieved a beautiful blessing from her father who blessed her with advice and tools that will help her through out her life. Recently she has just started to smile, and I can't seem to get enough of it. This picture is one of her first smiles.

These other pictures are ones that I just took on my own and I was pretty impressed by my artistic ability! She is 2 months old in these pictures

Lastly, just this Labor Day weekend, my mom took us to Park City to ride the Alpine slide, the zip line and the coster ride. It was our last little summer get together which makes me sick. Really the thought of fall makes me sad! I'm not ready for summer to be over, and not looking forward to colds, cold weather, or snow!!
