Here at BYU we are lucky to be able to play sports and try to work our way to the top and win the championship! I know it may seem silly to a lot of you but most students at BYU make it a goal to win at least one Intramural Championship. Clint and a bunch of friends put together a flag football team and had a lot of fun! They played hard all semester and in the end they WON!!! It really was an underdog story..but they came back for the gold and got the awesome t-shirt! I am so proud of my husband and it was a lot of fun to sit on the sidelines with my friends and cheer them on!





And here is a picture of our first christmas tree together!!!! I love all of our firsts!!!!

These are some of the few amazing people I went to Romania with! I loved seeing them again and catching up!

Fall Time in Utah

The other night I was walking home from campus ahead of me was a gorgeous sunset that was bright pink contrasting with dark pink, and at the tip of the sunset was a lush orange that filled with sky (if the camera on my phone worked I would have documented it for everyone to oohh and awwww about, but alas it doesn't). As I looked behind me I gazed upon the majestic mountains with tips covered in snow that reflected the light of the sunset and above that a full moon that was taking position for the night. It was during this walk that I realized sometimes, I take Utah, and the natural beauty that surrounds me, for granted. I have so many blessings in my life and the breath taking beauty of nature is one of them. I have been especially blessed this week because I witnessed three of those amazing sunsets....before the snow came:)

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Taryn and I went party hopping for Halloween, I was a hippie and Taryn was a 90's Pop Star, we were feeling pretty good about our last minute costumes.

This was a get together for Kristin since she is getting married in a couple of weeks. We went out to dinner in Park City and then played in Midway. It was a great night with lots of memories! Oh, and restaurant recommendation Red Rock, it is in Park City and Salt Lake and DANG good!

What do you get on a Ward/Davis Halloween night?

A crazy lucador, a beautiful referee and a never nude who in this picture looks nude....a little questionable. We had an overall good night, even though it was stormy and cold outside we did not go trick-or-treating but we dressed up and enjoyed great family, bonding time:) I hope everyone else had a great Halloween as well!

Winter Slippers

Clint has some really awesome slippers that my Mama got for him last Christmas and I love them just as much as he does....In the last three weeks I think I have been wearing them more than he has. Last night we go to Target to shop like I love to do and he goes off on his own and we meet up again and while I am babbling about some clothes I was thinking about getting he has his hands behind his back and then WHAM! Slippers that are cute and comfortable like his but they are my size and not his!!! I am so excited and I love them so much that i have only taken them off to sleep. I just wanted to share this joyous moment with everyone, that is how excited I am. I have a great husband, surprises me in heber and now these....I am a pretty lucky gal:)

Pumpkins!

Clint and I had a very busy and eventful weekend! I went to babysit some kids up in Heber on Thursday and Clint stayed and worked in Provo but then surprised me on Saturday! It was the sweetest thing and made me so incredibly happy to see him on that doorstep. One of the best surprises ever (the second best was when he surprised me in Provo after I ran my first and last marathon, he was supposed to be in Salt Lake City but came back down to see me and congratulate me on finsihing!!) Anyway, little tangent, but we spent the evening with the kids carving pumpkins, eating dinner and chilling with my familia for a little bit.

Last night we went to Clint's Aun's house and had dinner and carved pumpkins again with them and had a splendid evening. It was so wonderful to spend some time together and with our loved ones. Here are some pictures of our awesome pumpkin carving skills! And I cant wait to dress up and celebrate Halloween this weekend!

Happy Halloween Month!

I have not posted in awhile and thanks to Taryn's request I am finally getting around to it. I am not sure what to write about, that is why I have not posted in a while. I guess I could give a run down of our life. Clint is still working at a referee for BYU football and basketball intramurals. He is working just as hard as ever in school and will be applying for the business program and accounting program during winter semester. He is awesome, he always cleans the dishes and takes me out for fun dates on the one night a week we have together. I am really lucky to have a guy who as soon as he has a break calls me and tries to spend that time with me.

As for me, I have two jobs right now. Job #1 I am a research assistant in the Special Ed Program. This job does not require many hours, at least not enough to feed us for a week. So, that is why I got job #2 which is also a research job but this one has a real shift every week where I work nine hours a week and get paid $12 an hour! One of the best paying jobs I have ever had. And then I have one other job and that is picking up things here and there to make extra cash, mostly babysitting for a weekend while the parents go on a trip to SLC! Oh, and my school work is very time consuming but I am slowly getting closer to graduation and that makes me happy.

Our life is busy, but simple, chaotic, but lovely, all over the place, but our favorite place is home with each other. That is the life of the Ward Family. Pretty thrilling huh?

7 Year Old Rapper Dedicates Song To Sister With Down Syndrome | Among Friends

My mom turned my interest toward this video and I wanted to share it with anyone who actually reads this blog. There is nothing to say about this video, it speaks for itself. Enjoy, I know I did!

Old Memory

About three years ago my parents moved from California to a couple of other places. Well, while most of us were packing, crying or scrounging for something to eat at Aunt Deborah's house Matt, Marshal and Parker were playing throw the exercise ball in the dark moving van and when that got boring they moved on to using packing tape, water bottle and I think it was an old house to create this beauty (look below). I have a video of it which is very blurry. You will see it was hard for them to get under the water so if I recall correct they used weights to pull them down. Good memories!

Santa Clause

Warning: If you believe Santa Clause is real then you will want to read this post, if you do not believe he is real then when you read this you might change your mind.

I know this seems silly to write a post about Santa Clause when we are still in the Hot month of August but it just cannot wait. Clint and I are in Chicago visiting his parents and for a two days we went to the Wisconsin Dells to an awesome waterpark/hotel deal. Well, when we were driving home (Clint was asleep) so I was just chatting with his sister, Stefani, and his Mom when we pulled up behind a silver SUV with a sticker on the back that said "my other car is a sleigh." We have a little chuckle then we chuckle more as we see a sticker of an elf on his back window and notice his license plate says Santa C. At this point I am just thinking this person is a fan of the Big Guy in a red suit.

Well, as we pulled up next to this car their were no more chuckles just big gasps and smiles as we saw this Guy driving the car!!!!



























And as we smiled, waved and giggled a little in the amazement of seeing THE Mr. Santa Clause himself we noticed his pretty lade sitting right next to him smiling back at us. Mr. C waved to us in his short sleeve RED long johns and gave us the smile with the rosy cheeks you read about in books. There you have it, Santa Clause is real and is vacationing in Wisconsin!

We got a little bit of Christmas Magic in August. Pretty cool, eh?!

A Mini Davis Reunion

These are just a few pictures from one of our first Davis Family Reunions. What I consider our first was our Amazing trip to Havasupai.....and this one was just as good (except we missed Ryan and Marshal). We did a lot of boating, celebrated Rachel and Grandpa's birthday and mostly just enjoyed each others company. This has been a very eventful summer for Clint and I.
