Brothers + Jimmered!

In case you have been living under a rock or something, let me tell you about one of our simple pleasures this winter.

After a disappointing football season, we were starting to wonder if our all-sports passes had been worth it. Little did we know that a few short months later, we'd find ourselves in a crowd of 25,000 people chanting "You got Jimmered" at the top of our lungs. Ranked #8, the BYU team is on a roll, and we've been riding right along with it. Lest ye doubt just how much fun it is to watch Jimmer sink a 3-pointer from 40 feet out:

Now picture that happening over and over again in a single game, until he's scored 40+ points. I don't care who you cheer for, that is cool. And it's great fun to participate in a small way in a historical season for BYU.

This weekend we had the extra pleasure of having Landon's brothers with us to enjoy the experience. Friday night started out with a party consisting of treats, laughing and a little Psych. Saturday morning, I woke up with a headache and had decided to stay in bed for a bit. I was semi-conscious when I heard something funny out in the living room. I recognized that voice...but it couldn't be him, we hardly see him and he lives up in SLC...I groggily got up and walked out to find:

My big brother! Loved the drop-in visit. :) Headache forgotten, we had breakfast, talked lots about med school and girlfriends, and then did a little indoctrination.
 This is what it looks like when you get a group of boys watching anything to do with "Star Wars" on TV. I have a feeling there will be many moments like this in my future. We love our brothers!

After our fun morning together, it was finally time for the game.
To be perfectly honest, it wasn't Jimmer's best game (23 points). But he still sunk a few, and the rest of the team did great. It was so much fun having Dallin and Wesley around - polishing off the evening with pizza, ice cream, and games. In the end, we defeated the U 72-59. Sweet redemption after our painfully close loss in November.
And all was right with the world.
