BYU vs. Notre Dame

Did you know Notre Dame is only like 2 to 3 hours from Indy?  I didn't until I moved here. 
Every year that we have lived here, the BYU Football team has come and played Notre Dame at Notre Dame.
Bo and I have been wanting to go every year, but funds or schedules or sold out tickets have gotten in the way, and we haven't been able to go.
Not this year!  This year my AWESOME friend Lindsay Adams got her hands on some tickets and invited Bo and me to join her and her husband for the game.  YES, PLEASE!
The game was sooooo fun.  We lost, but it was still intense and exciting.  It was also FREEZING.  And I don't mean 32 degrees freezing, I mean 0 degrees.  It also snowed off and on the whole day too.  Sooooooooooo cold.  And that's a stuttering soooooo because of the cold. I think it took the whole drive home for me to finally thaw off. 
We arrived a couple of hours before the game so we could go see the sites and go to the BYU Alumni tailgating party that was, thankfully, inside. 
After the game we went to a local Irish Pub and had yummy Irish food and listened to live music. Lindsay took lots more photos, but unfortunately my computer won't download them.  Just imagine lots of smiling red cheeks.  And snow. 
Such a fun day!  I'm glad we got to go, and now I can move from Indiana with one more thing checked off my Indiana bucket list.  Thanks Lindsay and Brandt!!! 

Meg's Halloween Preschool Field Trip

Megan's Preschool took a field trip to a local retirement home for their October field trip.
They practiced fun Halloween songs at school the whole month and then dressed up in their costumes and sang for the patients.  It was darling. They also had cut out pumpkins on orange paper and handed them out.  Bless those little kids and their big hearts.

Scripture Power!

Tonight during family Scripture time, Carter decided to help Megan "read" her Scriptures.  He would read some words, she would repeat.  Most darling and precious thing EVER.
Carter got Scriptures for his birthday on Friday and has been eager to use them every chance he can get.  Today during sacrament meeting he opened his new set up and was reading from them. Again, so precious!!!  So proud of my little man.
I need to blog on his baptism, and i will....once i load the pics from the camera (this pic is from my phone)...which also has pics of Christmas.
Oh boy, i have a lot to catch up on!
