Colt McCoy and I crossed paths

Here we are tonight, one of us looking drastically better than the other. Dang it, I wasn't planning to run into my current football hero while attending the amazing #4 in the nation ranked University of Texas volleyball team playing against the #3 team, Nebraska. Colt McCoy was there chillin' with fellow teammate, Quan Cosby, when I asked Colt to pose with me. I was pumped to see my Longhorns football star this close and personal! The actual volleyball game was exciting as well. Texas won the first game and it was thrilling to be there. Those were some talented women!
Then the Cornhuskers won the next game. You can't actually tell how TALL they are from this picture.
UT won the third game! We left quickly after that so I could get Lindsey home since she has early morning seminary.
They play five games total, the best three out of five wins. I haven't heard the results yet, but my friend, Jillian, is going to email me the results of the game.
Here's Colt, probably thinking to himself, "Hey Kelly, thanks for your support. Everyone is always stalking me, but I am more than happy to accommodate my loyal fans like you" as I capture on my little cheap camera, this adorable photo of the number one quarterback in the United States of America not to mention Heisman trophy candidate! We love you, Colt McCoy!! Hook 'em Horns!
Thank you for making my day, Jillian, and organizing this group activity!

Thanks for coming Kelly! It was so fun! I'll be posting the pic of Simone with Colt and Quan in just a minute....SO FUN! And you looked great in that pic!
you are a total celeb, Kelly! Way to go. It's a good thing you were wearing your UT sweatshirt!!
No problem! It was so fun, and I'm glad we got to see some "celebrities." Oh, I called Tannie to ask what she was jealous of, and she said she wishes she had gone camping and to a fun concert all in one week too!

How fun to meet Colt! I always cheer for him when we watch their games. He looks like he is 16!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
