Friday, December 5
BYU started off the tournament Friday morning in a scrimmage against UC Irvine. Reed didn't start, so they lost the first game. They were down the 2nd game, so they put Reed in, but it was too late and they dropped that game too. But then they won the 3rd and 4th games. The 5th game was close, but UCI took it and gave BYU the loss. Reed played well and came away with 2 aces and multiple blocks.
Friday night BYU played Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. They were kind of like playing a high school team. So BYU swept them in 3 games. They even started the second game up 13-1! Reed tallied up another 3 aces!

The morning started off with a scrimmage against Utah Valley University. The boys of UVU were talking up a lot of trash and we were hoping for a good game, but they were like playing a Jr college team! BYU swept them in 3 and Reed had another 3 aces!
Saturday night BYU had it's second chance against UCI. It looked like the Cougs were going to take the first game, but a few silly mistakes at the end gave it to the Anteaters. But the Cougars took the next 3 games to win the match! Reed had another 2 aces-he had a good serving weekend! With that win, our boys in blue won the tournament! Way to go Cougs!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We've had a great long weekend. We started off Wednesday night by going to the Body World museum in Salt Lake. It was so cool! We got to see most of the human organs (both healthy and unhealthy), muscles, and blood vessels. Some of the bodies were doing gymnastics, some were shooting arrows, and one was even hurdling! It was really cool. We thought it was really nicely done and are really glad we went.
Thanksgiving Day we went up to Park City with some of Reed's extended family. It was good to see them and Grandma and Grandpa Chilton. Dinner was delicious! and we're so excited that it's now officially Christmas season! On Friday we got our Christmas tree (of course a REAL one!) and decked our house with lights and our other holiday decorations. We didn't do much shopping, but we did do some. It might not sound like a super exciting weekend, but we've really enjoyed it and are even more excited now for Christmas break!

So we just got back from our wonderful trip to Hawaii. The men's volleyball team played in a tournament at the University of Hawaii, so I came along with them. We had so much fun! The tournament consisted of 3 schools-BYU, U of H, and USC-and each school had 2 teams. Both of our teams won 2 and lost once, so it was good. It was so fun to get to see Reed play again-and he did so well! But seriously, no one REALLY cared that much about volleyball...
We went to The Sandy Beach where we saw some really big waves.
Those crazy boys thought twice about going in...
...but in the end, they just couldn't resist!
Reed and I later went exploring over on the rocks-it was beautiful!We later learned that the waves at The Sandy Beach weren't that big or impressive when we pulled up to North Shore-the waves there are incredible!
Reed and Kevin really enjoyed playing "Crack the Egg" and getting hammered by the waves breaking on the shore-it was pretty funny to watch!
We had such a great trip. We are so thankful for the opportunity we had to go and that it was a fun and safe trip. Aloha!

If you want to see what our plans were for Halloween, click on this link and watch "True Blue Athletes and Halloween" off on the right side (if it's not there anymore, click on "watch more videos" on the bottom and it should be there). And if you go to the Athletic Department page off the link you can read an article about Reed's brother, Kyle, who just got hired as the Media Relations Assistant Director. We're so excited to have Kyle and his family back in Utah!

Happy Halloween! To help us get into the Halloween spirit (which gets harder every year as the Christmas stuff comes out a little earlier), we made caramel apple and carved our pumpkins while we watched, "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown". Since I still haven't been able to master the typical Jack -O-Lantern face with triangle eyes and a goofy smile, I printed off a stencil I found online. I thought my Boo! turned out ok (for me!). Reed found the face stencil and really did an awesome job (his pumpkins are always way better than mine).
Our caramel apples struggled a tiny bit. I think the caramel was too hot when we dipped the apples because it didn't really stick to the apples very well! But it was fun to add crushed up M&Ms and Oreo cookies (but the best part was definitely scraping off and eating the extra caramel on the wax paper!).
Funny how that cute picture of us just happen to be right behind our apples...
PS-Vote yes on Prop 8

...to start getting excited for volleyball season! The 2009 schedule is up! As much as I miss having a weekend or a husband, I do love being in season. But the real big news is that I will be joining the volleyball team in November to a tournament in Hawaii!!! I've never been, so I'm super excited! And it's awesome because Reed is all paid for by BYU-so it's two for the price of one! BYU even pays for half of our hotel room, so we figure it would be dumb for me not to go. Anyways, click here to see the schedule and mark your calendars for a fun 2009 Cougar Volleyball season!

Then it was off to Redfish Lake-but not without stopping at the chipmunk place (Galena Summit) first!
Monday we went to the Sawtooth Fish Hatchery and fed the Rainbow Trout and went to the hot springs.

On the boat
Reed and Andrew on the tube
After a quick nap, shower, and dinner, we went to the BYU men's soccer game and then watched the Stadium of Fire fireworks from the field.
