BYU Cougars v. OU Sooners on Sept. 5

These two college teams will be playing in the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in the fall. That will be an exciting place to be.

Are you going? That would be fun!

We just heard about this too. Our friends from CA are planning to fly in for the game, so we'll probably try to go too. Of course, BYU will probably get creamed, but it could still be fun. :-)

That last comment was mine. I'm just using Chris' computer.

I would love to go. Guess I'll wait until it gets closer.

After their bowl loss, BYU falls to #25, yikes! And the way Oklahoma played last night...

This is definitely a game I don't want to see at all... I'm already sore at my Cougs (contemplating trading in my blue sweatshirts/t-shirts for red - is that blasphemous???), I certainly don't relish the idea of a hopeful perfect/loss-less season being squashed right at the onset.

I wish that BYU was playing at the intensity level that Utah has been playing, under those circumstances I'd gladly consider flying out to Dallas. But I think I'll pass on watching the lamb going to the slaughter. I can't even bear to watch it on TV where the blood and stuff is all fake (lol).

Of course if BYU were to somehow win, I'd be kicking myself into tomorrow! But the math just doesn't add up and I've painfully learned that good ole Mormon "faith" just doesn't apply to BYU football. I mean surely BYU should have beaten TCU, right? Just as they should always beat SMU and Notre Dame, etc. But I guess it just wouldn't be fair if it worked like that.

Isn't that exciting?! We seriously considered coming, but have a conflict with some medical meetings the week before. Not that we think the Y will win, but...
Too bad we don't know where we'll be or we would get tickets. That would be a great game. Go Cougs!

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…
