Go UTES! Oh no... I am never going to here the end of this from Matt. You see he is a BIG UTE fan and I normally go for BYU. This year, I was rooting for Utah women's basketball team! Matt usually gets on my case about cheering for the Cougars...hahaha I had been waiting all year to watch this rival game between Utah and BYU and Utah came away with an easy WIN! Now don't you fret you BYU fans, I still root for BYU football and and BYU mens basketball team but I will always root for Utah swimming! Swimmers ROCK! Matt's body says it all! (Not that looks are everything). Anyways, I invited my mom, dad and my friend Sarah Parker to go with us. As you can tell they were all BYU fans but sat in the UTE crowd! You might ask, why the crummy face coming from Matt? During the game Matt looked down to see he had a huge wet spot on his pants! Brooklyn had leaked through her diaper! It was pretty funny! I was able to see some basketball friends and their family at the game. I sure miss days of road trips traveling to play ball against other teams.... Sometimes I wonder if I will ever go back and help coach a basketball team. If I ever do, it would be with a college team.... Basketball Rocks!

This past week I had a good friend, Jessica Salisbury, visit for a photo shoot I was in charge of at work. Jessica and I played together in China for the World Deaf games this past summer. We instantly became friends and knew we would always keep in touch. Matt and I wanted to set her up with someone and we thought of Matt's friend and swim-mate Cody Rempfer. Matt and Cody both swam at the U of U together and have been great friends since. Matt used to worship Cody before they even met. For those of you who know Matt well enough, he is so into swimming and knowing who all the swimmers are and their best or worst times. He's just like the Rain Man! Now Cody is from California so we asked if he wanted to take a trip back out here to Utah. It all worked out and we went on a fun date to Red Rock in SLC (GREAT FOOD) and had some dessert at the Dodo (ya gotta try it, they make the best desserts there.... so Matt says... when we lived in SLC we went there every Tuesday night since it was two desserts for the price of one... he sure misses that deal!) We also walked around Gateway and shopped for some pants for Cody. It was a great evening. We love having friends stay at our home and stay up all night chatting. Matt and I couldn't get Brooklyn to look at the camera but we thought this was a cute picture of Jessica and Cody. There is also a picture of Brooklyn look pretty chick in the glasses. She just loves to model glasses and hats!

Shari got me a lift ticket to Solitude as a Christmas present, and just as luck would have it Loni also got one for Danny! We went on December 27th and had a blast. Aside from a few minor crashes it was a great day. Being the good brother-in-law that I am, I gave Danny a nice snow shower right after he crashed. I thought it was all fun and games till I realized that he was a little more banged up than I had thought. I felt like a jerk! Thanks for the fun day Danny (and Shari and Loni for providing it)!

We had a wonderful Christmas! It was all spent with family, just as it should be. We slept over at the Kelsch's house on Christmas Eve and had a great time hanging out with the family. Surprisingly the kids didn't wake us up till 8:00 the next morning. When I was younger we used to wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning from the excitement. Whayt are kids thinking these days? Brooklyn was so cute opening her presents, especially when she opened up the stuffed animal dog she got.

I finally did it! Walking out of class after taking my last final on December 11th felt so good. It was nice knowing that I didn't have to go back! I will probably pursue a masters degree at some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, but for now though it feels great to be done. After I finished my last final my family met up with me at The Pie for dinner and had a lot of fun hanging out. My happy evening abruptly ended when I backed into a car on the way out of the parking lot. Stupid me...oh well though. Live and learn right? It's a good thing that we can always continue to learn, even when we are college graduates :)
