Cannon's Birthday

Cannon was really excited to turn 9 last Friday. He was also really excited to have his birthday announced on the intercom at school and to be able to go to the principals office and get his birthday necklace to wear throughout the day. In fact, I didn't realize how important this necklace was to him until he got home from school that day and was unable to find it in his backpack. Needless to say, he was in tears:-( Thankfully, his teacher had it for him on Monday in class. Turns out he had dropped it on the floor on his way out......typical Cannon:-)
Friday evening we let him pick where he wanted to go for dinner and what activity he wanted to do. He choose Olive Garden for dinner because of there delicious salad and breadsticks, and then a late night of video games with his friend " E." It was very low key but I think they had a lot of fun.
A few things we want to remember about our 9 year old:
* His favorite food: salad, corndogs, chips & salsa, hashbrowns.
* His favorite color: red
* His favorite TV show: any sports game....especially football or Wipeout.
* Favorite things to do: play sports or video games.....but mostly sports:-)
* All he wanted for his birthday was ticket's to the Utah football game, and football flags.
* One important thing I want to remember is a couple days ago we went to his school for a "breakfast of champions." Cannon was one of two kids that his teacher picked from her class to attend this breakfast and receive an award from the school for someone who makes "responsible choices." I was truly SO proud of him!! I hope he continues to make good choices and continues to be a good example to those around him. We love you buddy!

Utah Football Game

All this kid wanted for his birthday was to go to a Utah Football game. Thankfully, the Ute's were playing the day after Thanksgiving.....and thankfully we were able to get tickets thanks to Ryan's brother Shane. Oh, and thankfully we were already planning on being in Utah. Guess it was meant to be! We had a great time and Cannon was on cloud 9. Brock decided he didn't want to go, which worked out well since it was super cold and he probably would have only lasted 10 minutes. We told Cannon he could pick someone to bring with us to the game and he picked his cousin Davan. The two of them had a great time cheering on their Utah Ute's!
