"Guys, a big storm is coming, we should go home!" "Mom, I think a storm is coming." "A red storm is coming!" This is what Caden was saying after the Dixie basketball game tonight, and it caused us all to laugh. It was really funny because he just didn't understand that the storm wasn't in the sky (and when it was a Red Storm he got even more confused). And to embarrass myself, I thought the college was still the Rebels. Huh, wonder when that changed.
We were invited to a mens basketball game with our friends, and we had an awesome time. I'll admit I was worried about bringing the kids. The game was at 7:30 and that's past bed time so I was expecting crankiness and not being able to stay the whole game (so much for being an optimist, eh?). Well, my kids surprised me. They played with our friends kids the entire game, and HAD A BLAST! You should have seen them dancing to the music. Even Cole was really good (mostly). It was a fun activity for our family to go to, and it was great to go with friends.
After the game Kember told Dan that she wanted to take gymnastics (because of the flips and things the cheerleaders were doing). She told me during the game that she liked the dance team. I told her that if she was going to like someone she needed to like the girls in the blue dance costumes instead of the girls in the red. Now, don't get me wrong here. I have nothing against the drill team or dance team or whatever it is, except their outfits were really really ugly. Not flattering on any shape or size (and they had lots of different shapes and sizes, and no one looked good). I'll never understand fashion. I'll never understand dance uniforms. I just don't get it. If you are going to impress people with your dancing skills, you don't want them making fun of what you are wearing. I know it was bad because even Dan commented on it. Anyway, there wasn't a point to me standing on my soapbox, but there you have it.
On a random note, I posted the (brain stopped working here) yes or no to cutting my hair, and I was getting really excited about it because so (oh, here it is, working again...Poll) many people were voting. I didn't think I knew that many people :) Well, it turns out, I don't. I'm guessing most, if not all, of the No votes are from Dan. He sheepishly admitted that he voted on every computer at work, for multiple days. Silly boy. So, it's skewed, but I'm still going to leave it up because I like checking it and seeing what people (aka. Dan) are voting.
