Rascal Flatts and Kelly Pickler!!

Last Thursday, KSOP radio station in Salt Lake City was giving away tickets to the Rascal Flatts concert at the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake. All I had to do was be caller 10 when I heard 2 Rascal Flatts songs back to back. I heard the songs...started dialing...busy...busy...busy..."Good Morning KSOP, who's this?" NO WAY!!!! So I called Melinda and told her we had tickets to Rascal Flatts for Friday night. We're both so excited. Friday morning, I'm working for a little while, when she calls my cell. I was busy with a co-worker so I silenced the phone and went back to work. She called right back. She must need something I told my co-worker or she wouldn't have called me right back. So I answer the phone. "Hey! What's up?" "MOM! I JUST WON PIT PASSES TO SEE RASCAL FLATTS ON KBULL" OH MY GOSH!! Now we have 4 tickets and 2 pit passes to the conert. How lucky was that!?! We ended up giving the other two tickets to another teacher and a high school girl that volunteers at the elementary school Melinda teaches at.

It was quite an experience. I've never been where they step on your fingers if you don't watch out! I was trying to take a picture on my cell phone for Krista when Gary, the lead singer for Rascal Flatts comes and takes my phone. Melinda and I both had this look of what the heck is he doing with my phone on our faces! lol It was so funny. Apparently, he was trying to figure out how to run the camera on it, 'cause he took a picture of ME with my cell phone. It was so dang cool. I know I probably embarassed the heck out of Melinda, but dang it was fun!!

Happy Spring!!

I survived January! But, where did February go? I can't believe it's March already! Thank goodness! I DETEST winter and this one has been long and cold.

Great news! Steve is getting married April 19th! Courtney is so sweet and we are thrilled to have her as part of our family. Courtney has a beautiful little girl, Brooklyn, who has already got this Grandma wrapped around her tiny litle finger. A new daughter and granddaughter! Courtney met almost the entire gang over the past weekend and the engagement is still on! Thank goodness. It's quite a zoo when we're all there. The kids got ready to leave Sunday afternoon, and we found out the road across the mountain was closed, again, because of white out conditions. Cody had a flight to Dallas to catch first thing Monday morning out of Vegas. They finally ended up going about an hour and a half out of the way to get home. Did I mention I DETEST winter?!?! lol

Kenna is going to take "ballerina lessons". She is SO excited. She had to go to Wal-Mart and get her ballerina clothes before she came to Grandma's so she could practice. The moves her Uncle Curt taught her were quite interesting. Looked a little more like a rutting elk than a ballerina, but Grandma worked with her. GO GRANDMA!

Mont and I spent last week in St. George. Mont had meetings and I had to shop. = ) The weather was SO nice. We went walking in the evenings after his classes and then out to all those great eating places we don't get to frequent. It was so much fun and I hated to come home.

Well, guess that's all for now. Hope I can do better keeping up here!
