Traditions in the making

Remember how I said I wanted to make Pizza Night a weekly tradition? Well I did it. At least I’ve now done it two times in a row. Not sure if that counts. The big U of U v. BYU game was on Saturday night, so we watched football, ate pizza, laughed, cried, yelled at the TV, and just had a grand old time.

This was pre-crying/yelling (a.k.a. Max Hall was still playing for the BYU team):

And this was our delicious pre-cooked pizza.

We did mozzarella, bacon, canadian bacon, and pineapple on Philip’s half. I do not like canned pineapple.

We devoured it almost the moment it came out of the oven, so no post-cooking pictures.

On Saturday I also went grocery shopping and decided it would be fun to have a little Sunday brunch after church. We go to church at 8am, so we’re home early enough to have brunch, have a 3-6 hour nap ( think I’m kidding) and then have dinner. I made the same thing as last week, except this time I didn’t burn it (meaning no emergency tacos..whew). Philip had church meetings after church, so he came home to this:

Don’t you wish you had some of THIS right now??

It was a lovely brunch, followed by a lovely nap, followed by a lovely evening together. I love Sunday’s.

    That looks so yummy! I remember those days when Ryan and I would take LONG naps and without interuptions…that was in the days of no kids! So make sure to enjoy them to the fullest while they are peaceful days.

    Sorry if I stir up some bitterness, but who won the game again?

    Oh yeah, that’s right. 🙂

    In response to your comment, responding to mine: Haha, I was a BYU-Idaho student for a couple years so I’m inherently a little anti-BYU-provo.

    Fact: “BYU-Provo is the church’s school. BYU-I is the Lord’s school.”

    🙂 Still love ya Merrick

  8. Sorry about my troublemaker brother! (GO UNLV!)
