I'm a Jazz fan

We saw Deron Williams and Al Jefferson at Cafe Rio during lunch today. I have to admit, I did want to be like all the other stupid fans and ask to take a picture with them....but I didn't. They declined many offers to take their picture...except a lady who had a baby...dang it, why didn't I think of that! Who can resist a baby? I just sat there, in their presence and that was enough for me. Ok.....I didn't just sit there, I texted everyone I thought would care and bragged that I ate lunch with them :) People get crazy stupid around celebrities...why?

Here are my other celebrity encounters:
Matt Harpring- waiting for an elevator at St. Marks Hospital (after his wife had a baby). I actually didn't recognize him at first and looked up (about 4 feet) and said, "Man you're tall"... DUH!
Kelsey Grammer- at Disneyland going to the front of the line with his girls while we waited :(
Yep, that's the only ones I can remember. My life is LAME!

Family Troubles

I wish I had a magic wand to fix everyone's lives. So many people in my family are hurting and in trouble. In Missouri and Utah, lives are changing and hearts are breaking.

I just sit here and thank God for how lucky I am to have my life....and pray that they can make it through their hardships.

Busy and Stuff

Its been forever since my last post, so here's a catch up....

My parents left to go back home on Nov 2nd after a 5 week stay with us. It was so nice to get to spend time with them. Kenlee loved being with them and getting ALL of their attention! I hope it won't be another 2 years before we get to see them again!

We had Thanksgiving at our house again this year. I didn't get any pictures with my camera, so I'll have to steal some and post them here later. It was the usual Thanksgiving fixin's. I did the turkey this year! I have only cooked like 2 my whole life so I was surprised that I didn't ruin it...YAY! Oh, and Justin had another turkey smoked at a BBQ place by his was a big hit!
I went "Black Friday" shopping at around 11am and was back by 1pm and hit 5 stores.....pretty dang good I say!

I got my tree up that weekend and the other Christmas decorations.

It got cold and snowed a lot. Kenlee was building a snow fort in the front yard with the neighbor melted yesterday :(

Kenlee has been spending a lot of time with Sandy, who now live only a couple streets away. They watch TV together, knit and talk about cats.

We cleaned out our basement and Justin (with a little help) installed light fixtures and switches!! It sure beats having to pull that dang string!

We got a new (to me) front loading washer and dryer and it has changed my life! No more missing the rinse cycle and 2 hours of drying time!!!

Oh, and I got a treadmill too! I am having a hard time with it....its just not the same as hitting the pavement. Hopefully I will get used to it and I will use it more. I still use my elliptical alot and its my favorite. Now I have set up my exercise equipment in our old office and put a TV in there too. I should be set until it warms up outside!

Happy Holidays!!!
