Week 4 Fantasy Football

In defense of the fine pictures my wife so kindly took, I have to say I dressed like that on purpose.  What that purpose was, I don’t know.

Here are the results from week 4, and the current standings:

As you can see, I lost in another heart breaker to Wright Nation.  I should have won, I switched Selvin Young in for Correll Buckhalter at the last minute.  If I would have played Buckhalter, I would have won.  By the way, props to Drew because he told me to play Buckhalter, should have listened.  In other match-ups, Drew (Blaze) killed Adam’s team, and Tyler (Vikingur) killed Wes’s team (I think 38 points is an all-time low).  Wade’s team (Porkers) beat Fraizer (Crazy Horses) to remain undefeated, and Regulators squeaked out over Dud’s team.


Revenge of the Nerd…

Honestly there are days that I truly wonder where I got him. He always tells me it was in the “used section” but seriously…look at him! The other day Taylor asked Rick to come out and play some basketball with him and his friend Hayden. Taylor’s favorite thing is when Rick shoots hoops with him and it isn’t very often he can talk Rick into it since it always seems Taylor asks at the hottest possible time of day. As you can see from the pictures it was getting a little later in the evening so Rick agreed. He told Tay that he needed to change into some different clothes and then he would be right out. I was in the middle of cleaning up from dinner and talking on the phone to my Aunt Mel when I turn around and see this sitting at the stairs tying his shoes to go out! Honestly, I bet people were driving by our backyard thinking “Oh how nice; those little boys let that big nerdy kid play ball with them!” I am not sure if he was out of clean matching clothing or just going for comfort, but for any of you who know what a pretty boy my husband is this is probably one of the worst matched outfits I have ever seen on him. I couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures to share the joy with the rest of you. My husband makes me laugh all the time and I love it!


In other news, I am getting to be the size of a barn now and am not quite sure how this ball in the front of me can get bigger but I know it is inevitable! People keep telling me I am not even showing though (really, do they think this makes me feel better??) and it makes me wonder how pregnant I must have looked before I really was-better borrower my sister’s turbo jam once I pop the little dude out! The little guy is moving like crazy and the Dr. says he looks very healthy from the ultra sound photos and that makes mommy very happy.

Bennett seems to go back and forth about how she feels about her new brother. One minute she is excited to have him and see what he looks like, and then just a couple of days ago she told me that poor people give away their babies and since we are poor (I am guessing this is because Rick is back to being a starving student), we should probably give away ours too. Such a drama queen…I re-assured her that we would be fine to take care of the baby and that we weren’t going to be giving him away. Where do kids come up with this stuff? I have included the first picture I have taken of the prego belly so you can all see how “not pregnant” I am getting.

Fantasy Football Week 3

Well, I lost again.  I had Ronnie Brown on the bench and he went off for 41 points, who would have known???  Here are the results from this week.




Tyler’s defense scored 24 points and his kicker had another 14, that sucks!!  Drew had a bad showing against Wright Nation.  He had 3 players left going into Monday night, but they could only muster 14 points combined.  Porkers beat Adam, and is off to a strong 3-0 start.  Crazy horses came back from 25 points down to beat Mitchell, and Dud came back from 40 down to beat Wes by 14!!  Here are the standings after week 3.

Well better luck to myself next week.  In other great news my best bud Jair Almaraz had a beautiful baby girl Sunday afternoon.  Little Anika Almaraz was small at only 5lbs 13ounces.  They came home today and everyone is doing good.  Congrats Jair & Renee!!

Wade and Drew are both undefeated and so far Dudley’s team looks…….well, not good. Some good match ups this week with Drew playing Wright Nation, and me player Tyler.


Fantasy Football Week 1

So, I decided it would be fun to do a weekly recap of our fantasy football league (yahoo league only since it is the funnest).  Each week I will recap the winners and losers and anything else of importance.  It was a very bad week for Drew as his quarterback (Tom Brady) went down for the rest of the season.  Drew did have the highest scoring player of the week in Micheal Turner, who ran for 220 yards and two touchdowns.  Here are the weekly results:

Blaze (Drew) beat Big-Un’s (Rick) 119-87

Porkers (Wade) beat Vikingur (Tyler) 100-74

Wright Nation (Eric) beat Regulators (Brian) 103-93

Adzmat’s (Adam) Team beat Duds Boys (Dudley) 72-52

WT Power (Wes) beat Crazy Horses (Fraizer) 70-66

Here are the current standings.

It’s a boy!!

Well, we went to Ali’s Ultrasound appointment Wednesday the 3rd. It is official, we say a wee wee. He gave us a great full monty view so there was no guessing. Needless to say I was very happy, Ali was stoked as well. She didn’t really care what the sex was, but she had been calling it a little boy the last few months so she was glad she wasn’t giving the poor guy a complex or anything. It was really fun to go to the Ultrasound, we took the kids and my mom came as well. Taylor is very excited he is getting a brother; I think Bennett is a little pissed off. Since we found out, we went shopping on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday picking out tons of cool clothes. Additionally, Ali found a cute little baby boy outfit that she bought for a baby shower about 6 months ago (ummm……whomever that was for I am very sorry) and decided it was so cute she was now just going to keep it instead. We also registered at Target and Babies R Us over the weekend, so we are pretty set.

On a different note, I started my Master’s program on Friday night and really enjoyed it. My professor is really cool and the class structure is awesome.

Finally look for a post on Monday detailing the first week of Fantasy Football (Spanish Fork League only)



I am way excited that in only 5 days we are going to find out if we are having a boy or a drama queen.  Seriously though, if anyone could please pray for us to have a boy that would be great.  Don’t get me wrong, a girl would work I guess, it just seems like Bennett is so much more high maintenance than Taylor.  Also, Bennett never sits and watches Jazz games with me, I mean what’s that about.  Ok, most of this post is sarcasm and I will love whatever we have, but we are very excited to find out!!!
