Potpourri

Hello again - it's been a while since I've posted an entry on our blog, and Carolina doesn't want to be the sole contributor, so here I am with a potpourri of stuff...

Trim, but not so fit...

Alex had his first haircut last night! He looks much more boyish after trimming some of his long hair. At his last checkup, we confirmed that he is succeeding in his pursuit of the baby sumo title, weighing in at a 98th percentile for weight, 90th percentile for height!


BYU is back?!?

With both the football and basketball teams ranked in the top #25 at the same time, it sure feels like BYU is clawing its way back into the prominence it enjoyed in the 80s. I think it's a little premature to say that BYU is back, but it is nice to see some consistent success and a growing national presence again. It was a great weekend when the basketball team beat #6 Louisville on Friday night, then the football team beat arch-rival Utah on a come-from-behind drive in the final minute the next day (converting on a 4th & 18 to do it - see the video).

Today, #20 BYU men's basketball takes on #9 Michigan State. Go Cougars!

Black Friday

Am I the only one who thinks it is insane to get up at 3am to go stand in line in the cold for a few hours (or camp out overnight if you're particularly crazy) just to get a 3-minute head start in a shopping frenzy to save $100 on the one or two gifts you can beat other rabid shoppers to?? As I walked into Best Buy the night before Thanksgiving, I actually saw 3 tents up on the sidewalk. People were actually going to spend Thanksgiving on the sidewalk in front of Best Buy. That's pretty sad.

I love being a dad

And this is why...
