Look what God gave me for my birthday.

Isn't that the most beautiful sunrise you've ever seen? And He made it for me. I was able to drive to work looking at His beautiful painting the whole way.I was listening to the most fitting song too.

How Great is Our God

The splendor of a King
Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
Let all the earth rejoice

He wraps Himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
And trembles at His voice

How great is our God
Sing with me, How great is our God
And all will see, how great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead, three in one
Father, Spirit, Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

You're the Name Above All Names
You are worthy of all praise
And my heart will sing
How great is our God

What a wonderful way to start out my birthday!

Go "Ootes"!

Translation: Go Utes!

Marshall was brainwashed fairly easily into becoming a University of Utah football fan. Whenever he sees any kind of Ute paraphernalia he says "Go Ootes!" or "Ootah!" and he loves to watch football games on television. We went tailgating a few weeks ago and he had a blast. Marshall and I left before the game though. He isn't old enough to sit through an entire game yet but you can bet as soon as he is he'll be there with his dad.

I have a few cute pictures from the tailgate lot. Here is our niece Bailey. We couldn't quite figure out what kind of hat that was on her head but whatever it was she was certainly showing her Utah Pride. And then we have the boys; two of my nephews, Cannon and Hudson, and of course, Marshall. They were being silly and this is the best picture I could get. See what I mean. I'm seeing three future troublemakers here. But they're still cute and Marshall loves to play with them.After having so much fun watching the band, playing football, and eating cookies Marshall was all tuckered out.

Seven random and/or weird facts about myself.

1. If I put salt and pepper on my food, I have to put the pepper on first. If the pepper is unavailable I will wait, however long it takes. The reason for this is because you can see the pepper on your food which gives a better idea of how to apply the salt that you can't see. I know they come out of their shakers at different rates but, in my mind, it makes sense.

2. I can remember all the words to my elementary school song, but for the life of me, cannot remember anything about my high school song. And I was a cheerleader for three years! I'm sure if my memory was refreshed it would all come back, but as of now, I'm drawing a blank.

3. Growing up I always wanted my name to be Nicole. I used to imagine that was my name and how wonderful it would be.

4. I will not wear shoes that show my toes unless my toenails are painted. And my toenails can never be painted green. It looks like fungus. My friends used to threaten me that if I fell asleep before them I'd wake up with green toenails.

5. When I registered for my wedding, I didn't bring Jesse with me. I brought my mom. But Jesse was more than happy to sit that one out.

6. In elementary, I used to cry and get sick to my stomach every year on the first day of school. My mom would have to push me out the door while the little girl that lived down the street, who was younger than me, patted me on the back and said, "It'll be okay, Christa". I still get sick to my stomach when I have to walk into an unfamiliar room. The thought of everyone looking at me when I walk in is just too horrible.

7. Rainy weather is my favorite. I love when it is gray and gloomy outside. Rainy and windy, that's another story. The wind scares the crap out of me.

I'm not tagging anyone. If you think it would be fun to share a little about yourself, do it and you can say I tagged you.
