it is your birthday.

Saturday was Jare's 30th Birthday! What an OLDIE!!!
It was a good day... went to the gym, got massages, played with the boys, then headed to SG for "dinner with friends." I told him earlier in the week that we were going to dinner with Downeys, Wells, and Slacks (Jaren & Ryan share the same b-day) in SG. He is didn't ask questions.
BUT Steph and I had planned a SURPRISE birthday party!
It was fun! Everyone met at the Pasta Factory at 6 and we showed up a little after. Both Jaren & Ryan were totally surprised. It was a fun night! Thanks to everyone who came (especially our Cedar friends who drove down) and kept it a surprise.
I think the biggest surprise was that I kept it a secret!!!

Happy Birthday Jare! Thanks for all you do for the boys and I - you are an AWESOME dad and husband. We love you!

we freakin' did it!

The State Drill Team Competition was held yesterday at UVU. It still seems like it's not real, but the results don't lie: WE PLACED 2ND OVERALL !!!
What an accomplishment for a team that 2 years ago placed last at Region and didn't make it to State, then last year swept Region and placed 5th at State. Normally a team doesn't "disrupt" the order of the top 5 teams at State... but we're not normal! We beat the "big teams" who are all moving to 4A schools next year including: Logan, Ogden, Bear River and Union.
When asked by a reporter what is different about this team, my answer was that, aside from the hard work and dedication that all Drill Team members display, our team has no (well maybe very little) drama. If you've ever been on a team of girls, or just had a group of girlfriends who spend on average 12 hours a week together, you know that that is not an easy feat.
It has been an honor to watch them grow up and become little ladies! My girls have learned to be responsible, respectful, kind, gracious as losers and winners, and fun girls to be around. They are girls who are at least 10 years younger than I am, but I ENJOY being around. They are funny without being crude, silly without being annoying, and know when it's time to turn it on and off.
I am so proud of them and can't wait to see them continue to achieve their goals! Next year we are going for #1!
Let's Go Mohey!!!
(I really will post video's soon)
