Happy Monday

We had a solid week of gray skies and rain last week so you can imagine how a glorious blue sky and sunshine is appreciated today!  It is a great way to start out the week!
 
We had a nice weekend--Cannon got to try a egg mcmuffin for the first time. We are not big Mcdonalds fans around here--but still I pretty surprised when he told me that  he had NEVER had one before.  Saturday morning everyone was gone except for the two of us and that is what he wanted for breakfast when I told him we could go somewhere for breakfast.  Silly boy!
Verdict:  It was "pretty good" but he likes my pancakes better:)
 
My boys were thrilled to see our BYU Cougars in the March Madness brackets!
This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago in the wee hours of the morning when BYU made history beating Gonzago at home ending their 4 year winning streak.  Let me tell you it is hard to be a true blue BYU fan when you live on the East Coast.  Most games end up being in the middle of night for us--ugh!!  It never stops these super fans though:)

Connor finished his big Capstone Senior Project last week--phew!  That was hanging over his head all year!  He did a great job so we celebrated with a lunch at Cheddars!  I am going to really miss this boy next year!  He had his interview with the Stake President yesterday and his mission papers should be in by the end of the week!  He is SO excited to get his mission call!
 

Bridger has found a friend that shares his obsession for Hockey!  These two boys are living in the wrong place to play hockey (there are no leagues here to join) so they created their own! They play at our house ...
and at his house.  Pretty much anytime they get a chance:)  Bridger now has all the Hockey games televised set to record!  Some of his brothers that are trying to record basketball games  complain that hockey is taking over the DVR!

Last weekend we took the boys to see McFarland (the cross country team running movie with Kevin Costner)

It was a good movie!  The boys liked it but I was excited with this preview: 
 
 The boys all swore that there was NO way they were going to that movie and that I would have to go by myself!  Then my very sweet husband surprised me by coming home early Friday night with tickets!!  What a guy!  It was super fun!
It reminded me of another Cinderella movie Ever After...have you seen it? It came out a long TIME AGO-- but I remember that  I loved it!  Now I may have to find the DVD on Amazon:)  Won't my boys be thrilled with that purchase?!  Haha:)

 
 
I hope you have a wonderful week!

I love that Bridger likes hockey. That's his Canadian heritage sneaking out!
Connor has grown up ... Just one milestone after another. Can't believe he will go on his mission in the next 3 or 4 months.
Loved the post - it was so full of fun news about the kids
