Josh's Cowboy Star

December 26, 1995 - Joshua 8 Years Old
Josh had asked if the Cowboys made it to the playoffs would I let him get a "star" cut into his hair... It was pretty funny... my dad was fit to be tied and said that no grandson of his would look like that! I kept telling him... it won't be that big of a deal... and it will grow out fast. The Cowboys played a Christmas Day game that put them into the playoffs. The funny thing is the next morning I received a phone call at work from by dad asking if Josh needed a haircut (my dad used to take him to Al with him... Josh was pretty fussy about his hair at 8... geeze) and then said... Al said "he can cut a star into his hair if you want him to"... Surprise... surprise... the other funny thing was... my dad kept trimming out the center of the star until after the Cowboys won the Super Bowl!

Your star is awesome! How far will we go this year?

Being the ultimate Cowboy fan... Josh decided that the "boys" needed some help with their December "loss record" (for the past several years... the Cowboys loose the majority of their December games). It was time for a hair cut and he asked Al if he would put another star in his hair...

Since we have been having Christmas dinner at our house the past few years...
Mom doesn't get to entertain as much...
so she planned a dinner at her house after the concert!
Josh was a party popper about the concert...
but mom still invited him to dinner anyway. It was super delicious.
Thanks Mom!

I love this song... it's about a Missionary
Josh was on his mission the first time I heard it!
Voice Male
John Huff - Richard McAllister
Mike Willson - Richard McAllister and John Huff
I was shocked when they posed just for me...
and I didn't get a very good picture!

Awesome! This is our 4th year of going to their concert at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. It never gets old... they have the most amazing voices... if you have not heard their music... you have to check them out at Go to CD we've made and then click on a CD and select a will hear a snip-it of each one.

When we were trying to find a parking place... John Huff and Mike Willson were standing on the stairs in the back of the Theater... being total dorks... we all waved at them... John did wave back (Mom is positive that is why he waved to me at the end of the concert).

They always sing "Rubber Ducky" and people in the audience throw rubber ducks of all shapes and sizes on the stage. When they come back out after intermission they toss them all back out to the people in the audience. This year Aunt Peggy caught one from Richard (last year one of those sweet ducks went zipping past us...we were on the front row and hit a lady in the 3rd row in the head... she was not hurt but the reason why they were being "tossed" back to the audience this year.

Thanks Aunt Peggy for treating us to such a fun holiday tradition! I love you!

Girls Night Out!

Jenna Mills - Vicki - Paige Thompson - Jana Perkes
Dinner out with the girls at Texas Roadhouse... what could be better! Jenna had great news... she's engaged! We are so excited for her! Looks to be a March wedding. It was great to catch up with everyone... it's been way too long! Thanks Jenna for always getting the "gang" together!

Once Upon A Christmas

A few years back... Mom, Aunt Peggy and I decided that instead of exchanging Christmas gifts... we would go and do "something" together during the holidays. The first year we went to Voice Male together... last year the three of us went to Savior of the World in Salt Lake... this year we decided to go and see Once Upon A Christmas... we had such a wonderful time! It is a play put on by the Davis Family from the Pickleville Playhouse in Bear well as a super delish dinner before hand by the Coppermill. Anyone looking for something fun and entertaining to do for the holidays... you need to go and check this out! I would have taken more pics.. but the camera battery died after I took the first two...
