Kylie Turns 16!

It is hard to believe my baby is 16 years old!  It always seems to me that once the kids start driving
they become somewhat independent and start that slight pulling away from the parents.  
It relieves me from taking her everywhere but takes away from that time together. 
Kylie is one tough little girl, she played football at Utah football camp with the boys for 4 years.  
She has been around Utah football all her life and knows more than I do about the game.  
Along with her older sister, she is a great cheerleader for the boys in the family.
 Kyle surprised Kylie (and me) by sending 16 red roses to her at school.  
 The family all went to PF Chang's for the birthday dinner.
Alex, Helen, Fred, Dawson, Shauntel, me, Kylie, Kyle.  Melissa had to leave early to work, Tyler for a meeting.
Kylie is beautiful, smart, and funny,  we are so grateful she is ours!

Utah Football Wives Workout

My crossfit workout partner, Sara Hill, moved to Ogden with her husband who is the new 
Weber State Football Head Coach.  It did not feel the same without her at Crossfit so I started a
Utah Football Wives workout group up at the football facility.  Kyle found a trainer for us,
Tony Maddalone.  All the wives are invited to come if they can.  This has been so good
for me and doing workouts with a friend or group of friends makes all the difference.

 The more the merrier!

Kylie Sweethearts Dance

It was 4 days before Kylie turns 16 and the Brighton High School had their Sweethearts Dance.
She asked a friend from school named Landon McNeil.  Getting the dress and all it takes
the girls to get ready these days is so different from when I was 16.  She had a good time and
they went with a large group of friends.

Melissa helped Kylie get ready by doing her hair and giving sisterly support
Kyle was there to see her off and remind her date of her curfew
Kylie is mid way up on the right, pregame picture at Megan Derr's house
