Yesterday I went to Brett's indoor soccer game. He plays in an adult rec league, and the competition isn't usually very intense. This game was an exception though, because they were playing against a team of fiesty redheads. Things really got interesting towards the end of the 2nd half when I saw a group of players slamming each other into the wall, followed by screaming and cursing, and then of course my husband being benched with a yellow card! In his defense he was only trying to protect his teammate who had been slammed in the back one to many times, but I just had to smile, because all of Brett's competitive spirit comes out whenever he's on the field.:)

Then it was on to the annual Rosen Halloween party. Brett's mom goes all out for every holiday, and Halloween is no exception. The house was decorated to the max, and there were lots of fun games for the grandkids. It's always fun to see them all dressed up, and I can't help but be excited for when we'll have a little one to dress up as well. Here's a picture of them in their Halloween finest, and one of Brett enjoying the witch's cauldron.
Our day was bookended by another soccer game, this time Real Salt Lake playing Colorado for a spot in the playoffs. For those who don't know we are huge RSL fans and in the few years the team has existed, it hasn't made the playoffs. All we needed was to tie the game, and we would be in. It didn't seem possible, especially after we were denied an obvious penalty kick call, and we had been down 1-0 most of the game, but in the 90th minute we scored! It was so exciting, and hopefully we can get tickets to see the 1st playoff game in our brand new stadium this coming Saturday.
This morning Brett and I spoke in church. He loves to speak in public and was excited to do so. Me, not so much. I hadn't spoken in church in about 4 years, nor has it ever been one of my favorite things to do. I was worried I would be too sick to pull it off, since this baby seems to like to make me feel sick and dizzy in the mornings, but I made it through my five minutes without throwing up or fainting, so that's a relief. I did however cry through the most of it, which is very uncharacteristic of me. Brett got up next and made everyone laugh when he explained how my tears were due to the pregnancy, which I like to blame everything on, and that I have a free pass for the next six months. He did a great job with his talk, and it was nice to have his parents there to watch. Especially since his dad nearly got a speeding ticket on the way over. Thankfully the nice cop decided to give him a warning if he promised to slow down.:)
