Number 7 and on the rise!

After a flurry of top ten teams lost this week, BYU jumped from #11 to #7 in the latest polls. It might be three weeks before they get tested again (@TCU) so who knows, they might be in the top 5 when the BCS standings come out. It's a great time to be a Cougar fan.

In baseball news, the Angels won 100 games and finished with the best record in baseball for the first time in franchise history. The playoffs start Wednesday at home against the Red Sox. We're healthy and rested. Things should go much better than last year, when they lost 3 games to none. The Red Sox are the ones banged up this time, but I don't feel sorry for them at all.

Sports vs. Family

Several months ago, back when the Lakers were making their run in the playoffs, my mother-in-law commented that she wanted to see more posts about family. Well, I have noticed that we were getting more comments on my sports related posts than we have been on our family related posts. I cater to the people, so it's about time to publish a sports related post again.

As a sports fan, I couldn't be happier right now. BYU is ranked #11 in football, the Angels are on the verge of clinching homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, and the Lakers are about to gear up for another shot at the championship with a completely healthy team. Sorry, Jazz fans, you're going to have for the proverbial "next year" once again. BYU has a bye week this week, but next week, I'll be sure to have regular updates of the Angels in the playoffs starting next week (hopefully we can beat those blasted Red Sox this year) and BYU football. Don't worry, Lisa, we'll be sure to still do the family posts, too.

BYU is poised to make a run at a BCS Bowl. Utah State is in trouble next Saturday.

Our trip to Fairview

We went to my boss' cabin in Fairview this weekend for a work retreat. The drive was incredible as the leaves are chanigng the color. This picture doesn't do justice to the vibrant colors (Though it's not bad for being taken inside of a moving car).

The kids had a blast. The cabin has a big playroom with slide. They wore themselves out going up and down the ladder leading up to it. For some reason, Kaylin got scared of the slide the next day so I had to climb up the ladder to get her, or climb up the slide and convince her to come down.

Here we are roasting marshmallows at the fire pit.

I might have one of these in twenty years, so you guys should be nice to me :)

Our Bell Peppers

I had to share a pic of our peppers we were able to grow this summer! I have never really tried to grow anything you could eat, so I was very excited to see these come in!! Tonight's dinner will have something with bell peppers!!

It's a boy! Maybe.

Jamie had an ultrasound the other day. Even though the baby was only 11 weeks old at the time, the technician said she thinks he's a boy, but she can't be 100% certain. I guess we can still be surprised.

Jamie thinks he already looks like a Moffitt. Honestly, I can't tell.
