Kenny's Graduation

We drove down to Vegas a couple weeks ago for Curtis' little brother Kenny's graduation! He graduated in Communications from UNLV. He's a senior in school, but still has one more year of football left, which is awesome because then he can work on his Master's Degree or something for free :)

Curtis, Kenny, and Kim. We are both so proud of him!!!

Curtis, Kim, Cheryl, Kenny, Granny, Herman, Stephanie, and Joel
We had such a good time hanging out with Curtis' family! It was kind of like our mini Christmas as well since I had to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day :(

Happy Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving in California with my ENTIRE family! All 24...13 of which are under the age of 8! I had to work Tuesday before Thanksgiving from we started the drive to CA at about 2:00am. Curtis is such a champ with driving! I would totally fall asleep. I kept him up until about 7:00am, then tried to get some sleep.
Things we did while in Cali: saw Breaking Dawn, pie night, ate a TON of great food, baptism for my niece and nephew, went to the Light's on Parade downtown Hollister, played games etc. It was such a great weekend!!

The whole fam!

All the grandkids.

We spent Halloween this year up at my brother's house trick-or-treating with his kids. It was so cute seeing my nephew Alex get so excited to get candy from each house. He was in heaven!! Then his cute little voice saying thank you to all the parents handing out the candy.

Marissa & Brandon's Sealing

One of my best friend's Marissa got sealed to her husband Brandon and son Isac on October 11, 2011. They were married last year on October 9, 2010 and sealed a year later. It was such an amazing experience. I wouldn't have missed it!
Curtis and I drove to Palmdale on Sunday night. We were planning on hanging out with his parents for a couple days. We stopped in Vegas on our way down and had dinner with Curtis' brother Kenny. He told us that his parents were in Florida for the weekend haha... so they weren't even going to be in town. It ended up working perfectly though because we got to hang out with my brother Mitch and his family on Monday. We headed down to San Diego on Tuesday morning. Marissa and Brandon took out their endowments then got sealed immediately after. It was perfect! The San Diego temple is SO beautiful!! We drove home right after. Curtis is such a champ when it comes to driving long distances! :)

I love this girl! She's one of those friends that you can go a year without seeing, but once you're back together it's like no time has passed! :)

Meeting Isac for the first time :) Such a cute baby!

This is Alex's baby Jacey! So adorable!

Marissa and Isac

Kim, Marissa, and Alex. I miss these girls so much!!

THE Curtis Brown

So, my husband is kind of a big deal. :) Duff Tittle wrote a book on What It Means To Be A Cougar and featured Curtis in one chapter. It's a really cool book.

Oh, and Curtis is on the inside cover. Such an awesome picture!

Yea, he's pretty amazing!

There was a book signing at the BYU bookstore last week. Curtis was asked to be there for an hour and a half and sign books for fans.

It's crazy how so many people in Provo look at Curtis as this superstar. I mean, he definitely was a star football player at BYU, but it still amazes me how many people recognize him and get a lil' crazy 5 years later. :) I love seeing the little kids come up and ask him for an autograph. So cute! Curtis is so humble and always goes out of his way for all his fans.
