Popples, Possing and Prophets

Ok... My family rocks! They pretty much make my heart sing all the time! ok...most of the time!

This has been a wonderful weekend! Wonderful I tell ya!

Care if I share?

Saturday night we headed to a Jazz game! The 5 of us and uncle Chris and Aunt Megan out to enjoy a game in the Wells Fargo box! We arrived early and braved the bitter cold at The Gateway.

Here's reason #1 why I love my family!


Baby Char Char seriously became my childhood Popple toy!


Notice any resemblance?

Please oh please tell me you remember Popples! They were down right awesome! I think I had a purple one!

Chuck was so stinkin adorable all wrapped up and ball like! She loved being toted around snug as a bug!

#2 reason why I loved my fam so much this weekend:

How awesome is Cricket!!!! Sportin' the Nerd glasses at Urban Outfitters! I love this kid! She was killin me possing and trying on endless hats and accessories!

Here I am trying to get in on the nerd action!

And the #3 reason I HEART my family:

They totally still love me even after I pimped my kids and made them talk to the Prophet!!!!! President Monson and his wife and friends were in the box next to us! I got a little star struck once again but this time I totally used the kids as a front and talked to him! Of course it was a big deal for them too but I was a little more into then they were! I made them wave throughout the game! Sad I know! Totally crossed the line but it's a moment they won't soon forget! Pretty awesome to see the Prophet in person and have him talk to you!

And by the way folks! Pres. Monson and crew were all drinking Diet Coke! If ever a question still lingered in your mind , put it to rest people!

that little Charlie makes my heart melt!

...and thanks for pointing out the Prophet's imperfection! Whew! What would we do if he were perfect and translated?! We need a prophet on the earth, so I am glad the devil's nectar has a hold of him. lol
