I never thought I would say it but....I'm in league with the Houston Rockets. I've hated them for so long but then Monday night came and I flipped on the TV just to check the score and saw them beating the Lakers in LA! It's true, I have a new-found respect for them. So I took a mental step back and tried to figure out why I've hated the Rockets for so long. I think a big part of it is the rivalry with the Jazz. But more than that, it is Tracy McGrady. He epitomizes everything I hate about some sports superstars and how conceited and full of themselves they can be. But he isn't playing now. And hasn't been for some time. And how evil am I for being happy that they finally made it out of the first round WITHOUT him? All these years that's all he's wanted and they do it the year he's injured....hmmmm.....what could that possibly mean? All stats point to the Rockets being a BETTER team with a BETTER record without him playing.
So back to my original thought: Yao? How cool was he during the Olympics? He's a good guy. Shane Battier? Yea, he's a great player. Ron Artest? Not a huge fan, but hey, he's consistent and if he'll get the job done, I can get behind that. Brooks? Apparently he's one of very few people that Derek Fisher can't keep up with. So he is awesome in my book. The Rockets have had a great year and they are most definitely who I will be cheering for during this round. And hopefully through the next round as well!
And by the way, Houston won the game because they played better than LA in game one. They didn't win because Kobe wasn't feeling well. And they didn't win because the Lakers were rusty after not playing for while. And LA didn't beat themselves. I'm so sick of hearing that. It IS possible for somebody to beat Kobe and company because they play a better game. Give other teams some credit.
Game 2 tonight!

So the concert was freakin' AWESOME! We had a such a blast. I got there with the kids pretty early and the doors were open so we went in to check it out. The band was out on the floor taking pictures with people and signing autographs and they said we could all stay for the sound check! I thought this was so cool...the kids thought it was neat at first, but they were bored after a few minutes. We went outside to stand in line after and were still able to get good "seats" where Braxton could see. He left the footstool in the car but I think he was still ok. We weren't expecting 3 opening bands and so we all got a little restless when Thriving Ivory didn't even take the stage until 9:40. Imagine an 8 yr. old standing for 4 hours. You get the picture. It was a little sad that by the time they started Braxton was so exhausted he actually laid on the floor for the songs he didn't know. But all the kids said they loved it! And so did Adam and I. I hope they come back again soon!

It's finally here! Tonight we are going to see Thriving Ivory again. And taking the kids this time. Are we crazy? The kids are super excited but I'm a little worried about all the time we will spend waiting around. And also about them being able to see anything. I'm taking a little footstool for Braxton to stand on. I guess we'll see how that goes! Hopefully it will be a fun experience for all of us, I'll let you know tomorrow.

I know, I'm so, so, so behind with my blogging. Have you ever gotten so behind that it is overwhelming to even think about it? There is much too much to try to catch up on...Halloween, Birthdays, Christmas...but here's a few pictures and that will have to do for now. We got so busy in the fall and winter, blogging was the furthest thing from my mind. I will try to be more on top of things in the future.
We went on a hayride and watched a Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin movie. We had yummy donuts and apple cider:

Here is the 4th picture on my computer. So, this was in Las Vegas for my cousin's wedding. I think we were inside the lobby part of the Temple. That is my cousin's daughter, Hannah, with my boys. Look how little they are! And there's Alyssa on the right. If I recall correctly, I think she was just freshly home from her mission.
I tag Alyssa and Megan. Post the 4th picture on your computer.
