Football Fever

My Top Reasons why I love BYU Football

1. The energy and enthusiasm I feel in the La Vell Edwards Stadium.
2. Hearing - "That will be another Cougar".... and Saying- " First Down" 
3. Sharing a "Cougar Tail"...(Rectangle donut with maple glaze).
4. Watching the continuing saga on the big screen of Cosmo fighting EVIL.
5. Sharing Warm Kettle Korn with my family.

BYU's ranking is 14th in the nation..not to shabby for a "Mountain West College"!

Cougars Beat The Utes!

My version of Tom & Jerry

On Sunday this week, late at night, Joel was up watching late night TV when he heard a squeek..he looked down on the floor to see "Buddy" (kitty) with a mouse in his mouth! (the cat comes in from the outside thru the "doggie"door.)

Joel then moved a little to fast..Buddy got scared and released the mouse, the mouse ran under the sofa....and here is where we begin the Tom & Jerry saga!

For the past five days we have a mouse living under the stove. We set two mouse traps with peanut butter..this mouse is a great escape artist, he managed to gobbled up the pb without a SNAP!

Buddy holds vigil by the stove everyday...

Today is "dooms-day" for little mouse, we bringing the big guns in...Decon mouse trap hotels!

Sorry to all mouse lovers but this ones got to go...:(

Mission Accomplished

There is nothing better(well, ok, maybe there are some things that are better) than finishing a project and seeing the end results.  I can become very obsessed to get to the end results.

 This quilt is on it's way to be machine quilted. 
I think I may hang this on the wall during the Holidays.
