Cougar Football

BYU beat the University of Utah yesterday. Although we do have siblings attending the U and we have great respect for their medical school, we are glad we beat them on the football field. BYU 17 U of U 10. Way to go, Cougars!

Johnny knit (or crocheted - I'm not really sure about the difference between the two because I don't do a lot of either) these hats as a missionary in Ireland, knowing that one day he would have a son to wear them with. Don't get me wrong. He'll let his daughters wear them too, but it's not his girls that are going to be suiting up on the football field.

Go Cougars!

Welcome to Earth!

John Davis Covey was born at 3:53 pm on Monday, November 12. His stats are 8 pounds 1 ounce, 19.5 inches long with a gorgeous head of hair. Welcome to Team Covey, dude. Tryouts are officially over, for a season or two. Team practice is held daily, with frequent water breaks (some team members prefer milk). Times vary - sometimes in the middle of the night - so far a good predictable pattern of 1 am, 4 am, 7 am - which is much appreciated by one of the team captains.

Here are some of our first team pictures. If you want to see more, go to this website where you'll see how the birth process was captured by my brother, Jon Canlas.

The password to view the event is: teamcovey

My fingers are crossed that he will be born with dark hair.

He is so handsome.

We are so happy he is healthy and here!

Barefoot and Pregnant on the putting green...

So last night was our last hoo-rah before we add a third member to Team Covey. We went miniature golfing with our neighbors and their two boys. I am happy to report that if they were giving out free t-shirts, I would have earned this t-shirt.

On the third hole, I lined up, feet shoulder width apart, hands interlocked at the exactly correct position, a little perfect swing and a hole in one. It's obviously my lucky week because I also cracked open a double yolk this morning for breakfast. I remember when we first got pregnant I cracked 2 double yolks in one week and I was certain I was having twins.

Tomorrow is the big day! We are going in to be induced to have our little John Davis Covey welcomed properly to earth. I am so curious how everything is going to happen, what he will look like, if he'll like me or not. Regardless, the next blog will include pictures of the little rascal. The last time I was nine months pregnant was a while ago, so I'm not really sure what's going to happen this time...

(Temple Square Missionaries at their halfway mark of their missionary service. You can see I carried this one like a basketball, too)

Back to School

So I am in my graduate program at Brigham Young University - Youth and Family Recreation. Every class is so interesting and exactly what I want to be studying right now. The timing of Johnny being born has been perfect so that I can prepare to end the semester and get things done in class. It's a 4 semester program and I'm hoping I can graduate April 2009. My plan is to trade baby time with other moms so I can be in class when I need to be and home when I need to be. So far, it's been fantastic. Touch down sign for BYU and for graduating and for studying stuff that you want to be studying.

Graduation from a masters seems far away, but here are pictures of Johnny and I when we each graduated BYU. I was Class of 2005. Johnny was Class of 2006. Johnny, baby to be, will be Class of 2032. Can't wait for that touchdown picture, dude.

Halloween was fun this year. We went with the Nacho Libre theme. Can you tell how much we like to quote it?
Can't you see this woman is a nun?
Get that corn out of my face.
Some people think I don't know anything about the gospel, but I DO.
We lose because you do not believe in God. We lose because you are fat.
Let's get down to the nitty gritty.
Who is this Incarnacion? Well, I love bolleyball and poopies. I love the Lord. No way, everything that you just said is my favorite thing to do too. EVERY DAY.
The boys are just trying to get out their wiggles. Go away, read some books.
Chancho! Can I borrow your sweats?
I know all the wrestlers get the fancy ladies and the free creams and lotions, but my life is good. Really good. I wake up alone in my bed all by myself every day. It's fantastic. I go to the kitchen and make some soup. I love it.

Ramses and Incarnacion. A pregnant nun is sketchy but we pulled it off. The mask came authentico from Mexico on our Corporate Alliance Cruise earlier this year.
