Cheer Compitition-Pocatello, Idaho

A few weeks ago Jordan and I got to babysit his niece, Raeyne, overnight. We had so much fun playing with her, and taking care of her. She slept over at our house too because the next day was Jordan's sister, Kirsten's, district cheer competition in Pocatello, Idaho. So, we all had to wake up very early, 6am :(, so that we could get ready, get Raeyne ready, and be in Preston, Idaho at 7:30am. Getting Jordan and me ready wasn't too hard because that's what I always do, but trying to get Raeyne ready was a whole different ballgame. Not only did we have to wake her up, change her diaper, put her clothes on, and do her hair. But, we also had to gather up all of the things that she might need throughout the day into her diaper bag. It was a bit of a hectic morning but we made it through alright.
Then, when we were all ready we heading up to Preston, and made it right in time (we were riding with his grandparents so we had to be on time). After the hour and a half roadtrip up to Pocatello we found the competition, and made it in the doors right at 9:00am, when it started. We had a lot of fun watching all of the cheer stunts and routines, and playing with Raeyne.
When the competition was over we headed over to Applebee's for lunch, which was so yummy! After lunch we packed up the car and headed home. We were all so exhausted that we slept the whole way back. We were only home for an hour or so when Rachel came to pick up Raeyne. We were sad that she had to leave, but happy that we got the chance to tend her. Watching Raeyne really made me want a child of our own someday :)

SuperBowl Party

This year Jordan and I decided to have a SuperBowl Party at our place. We had been talking about it for a week or so and when we finally decided that we were going to have one it was only 3 days before the actual SuperBowl. So, I had to hurry and do some football research, like who was playing (Steelers Vs. Packers), and what time the game was starting. After I did all of that I had to make an event on facebook, make the menu, create a grocery list, clean the house, go grocery shopping, and cook all of the yummy food and snacks.
On the menu: White Chili
Corn Bread
Chips and Chinese Salsa
Chocolate overload cupcakes
So, on Saturday Jordan and I did some grocery shopping, and major house cleaning to get everything all ready for the big day. Then, on Sunday, we went to church (our first time as a married couple, and at the married student ward), then came home and started cooking. Everyone started showing up around 3, which was just perfect because I had just put the final touches on all of the cupcakes, and everything else was ready to go.
The game was great, and the commercials were a lot of fun to watch as well. But, I think the two most talked about topics of this SuperBowl was the fact Christina Aguilera messed up the National Anthem, and the sound at the half time show was absolutely terrible! But, other than that everything went pretty well.
