He said, "A group of us are going to see the lights at Temple Square and hear Viewmont's choir sing. Do ya wanna come?" I didn't even know if it was a date or not. I said, "Sure."
It was a date.
We saw the beautiful lights. Heard the fabulous choir. Threw a penny in the fountain and made a wish. (I still remember mine.)
We played boggle afterward at Gary's house. Had "green" pumpkin pie and hot cocoa.
He said, "Can you microwave milk?" (He didn't have a microwave yet.)
We all laughed.
Hmmm... I thought. I like this boy.
It's been a good Twenty-one years.

even try out! He just told the choir teacher last spring, "I want to be in concert choir, but I don't want to try out." Imagine my surprise when we got his schedule for school and he was in the choir. Too funny! The night was great, except for the insanely hot room, and Ashlyn's friend leaning over to me saying, "Your baby just puked." Yes, that's right. Brooklynn leaned over the seat of her chair, and tossed her cookies in the row behind us. Luckily she missed the guy's shoes! (and there was just one song left!) Parenthood is always an adventure!

There was a few minutes left in the game and all we had to do was keep them from scoring. With no penalties all game we get two in the last few minutes, and two of our players have to sit out. The other team pulled their goalie out so he could help them score so it was basically 6 against 3. I couldn't believe how slowly the clock was moving. Finally, time ran out, and we won 4 to 3. I was so happy for these boys. Things don't always work out the way they should, I'm glad they did tonight.

McKinley called me to come and pick her up from school today. She wasn't feeling well and wanted to come home. She had a normal temp. when I picked her up, within and hour it was 101.6 and a few hours later 104.1. Poor baby. We are pretty sure it is the dreaded H1N1. She has all of the symptoms. :( I guess we will be camping out at home for a while.
Will is very worried that we will all catch it. I just want us all to get it, and be done with it. I know I'm a little crazy. Hopefully McKinley has a mild case of it, and is back on her feet soon.

McKinley followed the Twilight craze and was a vampire. Ashlyn was an Egyptian Princess. They had a blast, although Ashlyn walked out without a jacket and everyone who came by told me she was freezing! Just give me the crumby mother award. :( I sent Will out looking for the girls and their group with a jacket for her.

One of the few times Brooklynn slept during the night. She was hooked up to all sorts of monitors and wires which made her totally uncomfortable. It was a tough night for both of us, although she must not have eaten too much medication (between 1 and 2 pills) because she was only restless, and wouldn't sleep. That was good news. She could have ended up with seizures, so we were really happy.

Earlier this year Will and Jacob's dad took some of the kids including Jacob, and my McKinley and Ashlyn down to the Moab area. Needless to say, the girls took it very hard. My sweet little Ashlyn said she was going to pray all night for Jacob. Conner came racing into the house with the news just minutes after Will got the phone call. He had been up by the accident site, and saw the helicopter. Brennan, in his (new) mature style, waited for all the little kids to clear out, and then grilled me to see if I knew anything more we weren't telling the little kids.
Our hearts are heavy, and filled with prayers for Jacob, his family, and the woman who hit him.

We had a fun time with the cousins being able to hang out together. I would have liked to go on some hikes, but it was a quick trip, with lots of sightseeing.
