Really Cute Kids

Well... Life here has been a bit crazy. Israel's uncle Oscar passed away this week. There has been so much family over. To eat and to hang out. Israel and I, But mostly Israel got to make a video of Oscar's pictures to show. It was good. We ate so much good Mexican food! And Funeral Potatoes.
The funnest part of the dinners for me was to get to see the kids playing around with each other! Little children are so cute! The three to the right were digging with their feet at the cemetary during the services. 
The young man to the left was trying to see what was up his nose with this helpful flashlight. This cutie below was dancing away to the Mariachi Music. She was clapping and stomping. She definitely had the best moves of everyone there!

These two little girls, @ the bottom right, Gloria and Gabby kept running around and following me asking me to take their pictures. I would say OK and so they would pose for me. They did this repeatedly posing and then running up to me wanting to see themselves. They are SO adorable! Here to the right is one of their many poses!  The little boy, @ the very bottom, kept trying to strap the mask to the top or the back of his head! I loved it. He was so happy to be in front of the camera too.

I loved that I had the chance to meet Israel's family! They are good people and there was really good food and I got to take some pictures of some really cute kids! I thought I'd share these cute kids with you all. They make me smile.

Our first Bowl game...

Last week we got to do a really fun thing! On the last day of 2007 we got to go to the Insight Bowl at ASU. Israel, Isaac, Melodie and I went and enjoyed it! We had never been to a "Bowl Game" before. We had no particular knowledge of, or loyalty to either of the teams playing. It was Indiana University vs. Oklahoma State University. Luckily I had made a wise fashion choice and I wore the right colors... When we got there and saw that Oklahoma was Orange and white and we saw that that was just what I happened to be wearing. So we instantly got excited to root for Oklahoma State. That was lucky, We sat right in the heart of Oklahoma seating... It was a sea of Orange. We quickly got into the game and we learned all the special Oklahoma Cowboy's Cheers and their special "Guns" (that was their hand gesture to show they were doing really good). We also soon realized that my fashion choice must have been inspired because Oklahoma State Squashed Indiana.
(Sorry Kari!!) But it was good for us because in being avid Oklahoma fans, we were trash talking and the Cowboys were backin' us up. It was a really fun game! These pics are fun... I have to tell you that the second one is Israael and I at half time. His face is because he was really sick of the numbers of pictures I was taking and making him pose for. YEA! Go Cowboys!!!
