Pumpkin Carving and Halloween Party

So on Monday night the Underwoods came over and we carved our pumpkins for FHE. We bought this cool pumpkin carving kit and used designs from that. At first it looked easy but than we found out that we bit off more than we can chew and it took a while to get them done. After a couple hours we finally completed our masterpieces and they turned out great. Teresa did the witch, Jeff did the Pirate ship and I did the tree. I also posted a picture of our Halloween Costumes...I was the QB and Teresa was the knocked up cheerleader. We wore these to a Halloween Party some friends threw.

World Series 2007 and I HATE BEN AFFLECK

So this past weekend my Dad and I got the opportunity to go to the World Series to see the Colorado Rockies play the Boston Red Sox...or should I say get smoked by the Red Sox. I had bought season tickets this season for the Rockies for the company to give out to clients and one of the benefits of this is first dibs on the playoffs games. This was my first time to a World Series game and let me just say that it was amazing. I can't put into words the energy the that encompassed that evening. Just walking up to the stadium was amazing. The game itself was a wave of emotions from being down six in the 4th to coming with-in one run via a 3 run homerun by Matt Holiday in the 7th. I hope the pictures do the game justice...check out the last picture..by far the best poster of the evening (Ben Affleck is a huge Red Sox Fan)

Career Ending Injury????

Teresa and I are tired of looking at my Transformers charachter so here is a little update:
So on Saturday I was playing Flag Football with the fellas and during an interception I tried to "juke" a player on the other team (yeah, I have mad skills like Reggie Bush) and I ended up juking my Meniscus into a tear. There was a big pop and I went straight to the ground. At first I thought it was an ACL tear, I mean isn't that what you would think, but it didn't swell up like an ACL injury would have. I was immobile for about 4 days and today I can barley bend my knee under it's own strength no more than 20%. After the injury and up until I found out it wasn't an ACL tear, I had contemplated going to work for ESPN or Fox Sports as a commentator or annylyst. Isn't that what stellar finley tuned athletes do after a career ending injury? Luckly though all I need is some rest and rehab and I will be back on the grid iron in about one month...
In other news we finally finished the backyard. I will be posting another more detailed post including pictures in the week to come. Seacrest out!!!

What a great weekend...it stinks that it is over. We drove out to Utah on Thursday night to attend Scott Brady's wedding on Friday. It was the first wedding I had been to at the Salt Lake Temple. Man talk about a circus...there were newleyweds coming out of the temple every 5 minutes. It was nuts. The ceremony was a different story though. By far the BEST sealing that Teresa and I have ever been to. We could have listened to this sealer for hours and hours on end. He brought such an amazing spirit and the advise he gave the bride and groom was amazing. I should have gotten his card to pass out to any friends planning a wedding. We would have paid to have this guy there at ours to seal us. Anyways, Scott had one of the biggest smiles on his face and it never moved...it was sooo funny. At the end of the ceremony Clay, Baker, Paul and I all agreed that we need to step up our game, another notch, as husbands and fathers. After the sealing we waited out side for them to take pix...it was cold and crappy weather...the kind of weather that is cold but not cold enough to snow so we just sat there in the cold wind waiting until they came out. Pix went by fast and than we went and ate at Cafe Rio....you know at first I didn't get the hype but now I crave it when we go to Utah..."they put an addictive chemical in there sauce that makes you crave it nightly...you wee girl" (Mike Myers, So I married an axe murderer)
That night we did the reception thing. It was at this cool warehouse in downtown SLC. We saw a lot of familar faces there and it was good times had by all. After the recpetion we hung out at Spark's House and Clay and I learned that Paul is a master Ping Pong Player...I am still fumming that i didn't beat him.

Aside from the wedding we stayed at Teresa's brother Jeff's house and hung out with all of Jeff and Kristen's kids and Kerri and Ryan's kids. On Saturday morning we went to the boys soccer games. Even with the cold weather Danny did great and scored a goal. William left his soccer game cause the little guy was too cold and him and Jeff came over to watch Danny's game with us. William loved the Starbucks hot chocolate and the picture I took of him makes him look like this little mature man. After the first session of sat morning conference the Hacking's came over and we had a Gingerbread house contest. The girls against the guys. Jeff was the judge and of course the guys won because we were unique in our construction and included places to build a roof top basketball court and lounge area on our house....and plus William's gingerbread monster was very scary...especially with all the gum drops that he used. Jeff and I also took Darren out to the driving range were I managed to break the face off of my nine iron and launch it 50 yards...yeah the ball went 120 so minus the broken club I call it a success. We also went and test drove cars and helped Jeff make a decision on his new work car. It is verrr nice.

Saturday night the guys went to priesthood session and than we went and watched the best movie i have seen in a long time: TRANSFORMERS. We met up with Erik Manning and Erik Oh and even ran into Adam and Misha Edwards...how random. Utah is a funny place...i get a huge kick out of all the random billboard advertisments. Next time I visit I am going to take a picture of them and post them on this blog so you all can get a laugh as well.

Teresa's sister wanted to see a picture of Teresa to see her pregnant belly....this is the only one we took and I am not sure if you can tell or not. I am supposed to say that you can't tell....That is a guy rule. I also got to feel our little girl for the first time this weekend....it was sooooo amazing. After watchng Baker this weekend I can't wait for our little girl to arrive.
