And We're Off...

So Match Day was Thursday and boy was it fun and eventful. For those of you that haven't heard, the Wilcox family is off to....Drum Roll Please... UTAH for residency. That is right we are staying right here in good old Utah. We are excited about it and feel good about it. We have a lot going for us here and of course it is much easier to stay than to pack up and head out. We pretty much knew we were going to be here so Match Day for us was not at all a surprise. It was a lot of fun to see where other people were going. All the med students and their families met together at the Jewish Community Center up by the U of U and opened their letters at the same time. They all had the chance to go up and tell everyone where they were going and what they were doing. I had a great time. Chill's parents were able to be there to support Chill as well which was very nice of them. There was a big party that night at Red Butte Gardens. Chill and I made it about an hour before it was over. We showed up in jeans and short sleeves only to find out the event was Semi Formal. Um hello can you say awkward? Yeah I felt pretty dumb, but we went in anyway and Chill was able to chat with some of his classmates and then we were out. I didn't take any pictures at the party but wish I would have for the memory. Nothing like sticking out in a crowd!

The Big 3-0

Yep it is true, my husband is an old man. Chill turned 30 this week and we celebrated all week. His birthday was Tuesday (St. Patricks Day) but the fun began last Saturday with Dinner at Restaurant Morelia with our friends, Monday was dinner at Teppanyaki with my family and the week ended on Friday with dinner at the Olive Garden with Chill's family. It was a fun week full of lot of celebrating. Because his birthday was on St. Patrick's Day I decided I would have some fun with it. I decorated the house with balloons and crate paper and made everything green for breakfast and dinner (green eggs, green waffles, green juice, greet name it, I turned it green). It was a lot of fun and I know Chill appreciated my efforts...ha ha!

Happy Birthday Chillin!

So you know there are times when we have to tell my dad that some of the clothes he wears are well...out of style maybe. We are always trying to help him out with things, but he nevers seems to love the things we buy him. He has these jeans...I'm not really sure how to explain them, but I think he found them in a catalog and ordered them up. We have bought him many pairs of jeans in hopes of replacing these "catalog" jeans, but we have been unsuccessful. One day I was going through Carson's clothes and found a pair of jeans that look EXACTLY like the jeans my dad has. I of course put them on Carson and went over to my parents to show them my discovery. My dad just LOVED it. The next time we were on our way over dad said, "make sure Carson is wearing his jeans." When we got there my dad changed his shirt so they would match. In one of the pictures you can see they both have cell phones hanging on their pockets because these pants literally have 50 pockets. Also my dad taught Carson how to do "noses" when he was really young and that his his favority thing to do with Grandpa. My dad really thinks the jeans are cool now that he and Carson are twins!!!
