double your fun

happy birthday cooper and sierra!!

my sweet little twin brother and sister are getting older! so weird!

this is when they were just 2 years old...

...now years older
(aren't they cute?!)

i can't believe we are celebrating another birthday.
they need to stop growing!

sierra is following in jessie's steps and becoming a gorgeous long-legged dancer,
and cooper is involved with anything imaginable (student council, basketball, academics, cougar football, jazz basketball, and more!)

i love them to death and will always think of them in their cute overalls :)

happy birthday!!!

in the nosebleeds

this is how we afford jazz games--at the very very top. the players looked like ants, even shaq. but, it was such a good game, you could be anywhere in the ESA and still have a rockin time. and a rockin time we had.

kelly and dallin.
kelly knew more about basketball than i think of one of us. you rock kelly!

jake and i. i was super clueless but, wow, was jake into it!

danica and jake.
good think jake and jake sat next to eachother because they could talk stats and strategy while danica and i just danced along with the jazz dancers.
(we were super good too. we are going to try out next year.)

this is when we were up by 20...

this is when we almost LOST the game but luckily went into overtime.
geez jazz you almost gave us a heart attack!

but... as you all know that is not how the story ends.
our faithful little jazz won the game 104 to 99 in overtime.
(jake would kill me if he knew i was calling his jazz team little)

we survived it and i survived the nosebleeds. thanks danica for such a fun idea!

ok so i knew it was coming....but still. didn't we just get a taste of spring yesterday? all i'm saying is that it is still a bummer that it is march and that we still have to experience the ups and downs of spring trying to arrive. can't mother nature make it how it is suppossed to be--fall then winter then spring then summer? why do we need the fake-out? i didn't like the fake-out this week. so rude.

Saturday night i was invited to hang out with the coolest people i know and oh boy, what a night. so the party was all about "sign song" which is just interpreting songs. I was BLOWN away! it was so good. one song that inspired me was Hanson's "mmbop". (come on girls, you know this one by heart!) Eliza--props girl friend. can i be like you? also loved the HSM song signed by the cutest interpreting team/married couple ever. Rachel--besides having tendinitis or "tennis elbow" (he he) your songs rocked. literally.

next time the pressure is on. everyone did such a great job. i was told that in order to walk in the door next time, i have to have a song prepared. so prepared i will come.

thanks for a fab night Rachel!
