#2 - My absolutely amazing missionary sister! Michelle is such an awesome example to me and I am so glad she is my sister! Only 3 1/2 months til she comes home!!
#3 - The cutest nephew in the world! These pictures are from thanksgiving day. He loved my cousin's skateboard and wanted to be big and ride it. What a stud! I love that kid!
#4 - I have the most fabulous friends! I don't know why I have been so lucky to be blessed with the best friends in the world. There are lots more than are in these pictures, but these ones mean a lot to me too. I hope all my friends know how much I love and appreciate them!
and last but not least....
#5 - PIE!!! I love thanksgiving because I love pie! Pumpkin especially, but any kind of pie will do. I made this particular pie the night before thanksgiving with my friend Kim. I was so proud of it because I have never made meringue before and it turned out awesome (besides the edge that got bumped when it was coming out of the oven). Gotta brag a little! ;)

The Cougars beat New Mexico 42-17 on Saturday to claim the Mountain West Conference championship! It was a great game. New Mexico played tough and forced us to work for this win, but it was exciting none the less. We are now 9-2 for the season and have the biggest game yet to play. It is such a great thing to have won the conference, but it will mean absolutely nothing unless we beat Utah this Saturday. We are playing in Salt Lake and it is going to be tough, but it will make the season that much better to beat them in their stadium. Can't wait for the game! Gotta love Rivalry Week!
GO COUGARS! BEAT THE UTES!

President Monson said something yesterday that really struck me and I need to really work on. I've realized recently that I think too much about things I've done in the past or how things are going to work out in the future so I don't fully enjoy the present.
President Monson said, "The past is behind - learn from it. The future is ahead - prepare for it. The present is now - we must live in it."
3 Nephi 13:34 - "Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself."
This has become my theme scripture lately as I try to more fully put my faith and trust in the Lord and know that as long as I am doing the things I should and am keeping the commandments everything will work out.

When Kyle got home we made Halloween witches hats out of a cookie and ice cream cones and then decorated them with frosting and candy. My mom had seen it done on TV and thought they were so cute. It was fun, even if they did turn out a little funky.
I'm not crazy or anything! Just a little hyper from all the sugar!
The incredible fam! (minus Sister Castillo who is still on her mission in the Philippines and Kyle who is taking the picture) Easton, Haley & Landon, me & Sean, Mom & Dad

It was the first night game of the season and the forecast was for temperatures near freezing, but it turned out to be a pretty nice evening. Chilly, but great for football!
Some of my amazing friends...Ward, me, Jenni, Bekah, Summer, Neelam and Tim...lots of fun! And we also have awesome seats! Gotta love being students!
Kim, me and my roommate Rebecca
Tim thinks he is pretty hilarious wearing Neelam's coat. He definitely looks hot in it! ;)

I'm not biased or anything, but I definitely think this is one of the cutest little boys in the world! Who could deny it!?! In fact, Sean and I are always have "cutest nephew wars" and I always win. ;) I can't believe that this little man is already 18 months old. Time flies!
For Halloween Easton was a bumble bee, complete with a little stinger. Adorable! (I personally like the spiderman candy bucket that he was carrying around)
One of Easton's favorite things is to play at Grandma and Papa's house. He has them wrapped around his finger. He loves to play with Papa and help Grandma in the kitchen.

This is a picture of me and my roommates AJ and Becca. Becca is a little girl and AJ is "your mom" - everytime someone would ask her who she was she would say, "your mom!" hilarious!
My friend Chase dressed as Ronald McDonald and honestly, it took me about five minutes to figure out that it was Chase. The only way I figured out it was him was when I saw his girlfriend with him. He even had the big shoes to finish off the outfit!
Some girls from my ward at the party....
Whitney, me, Rachel, Kim, Becca and Emma
Honestly, I hate this picture of me, but I thought it was so funny. This is my friend Aaron dressed as Tigger. He is a big BYU football player and to see him dressed in that costume was so awesome. I look retarded because I was laughing so hard, but isn't Aaron cute??!!
