Coldest Game Ever

Last Saturday was the last home game of the season and it was the coldest game ever!

But I'm getting ahead of myself. That morning Rog braved the elements to go on a run. (I did not. Instead I made Baked Oatmeal from Our Best Bites' Savoring the Seasons Cookbook. Yum!)

I crashed my mom's Super Saturday to make this advent calendar.

Then it was on to the game. The weather was ok enough for our tailgate - just a very light rain. Corbyn ate a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie (after refusing to eat any soup or bread). He immediately started complaining about his tongue - uh oh, now we're pretty sure he's allergic to macadamia nuts. But it seemed like a mild enough reaction, so Rog took him into the stadium ahead of everyone else to get him some water. And look who he got to meet! I'm so mad I missed this!

As soon as the game started, the rain really started to come down. We were prepared with ponchos, layers, coats, hats, gloves, and even hand warmers, but it was just cold and really really wet! My parents had taken Peyton with them on an errand to Target, so luckily she was warm and dry. Corbyn fell asleep, so we decided we'd have my mom pick him up when she dropped my dad off at the game after running their errand. But when they got there we all just decided to leave (before half time) - it was that miserable. We were playing Idaho State and totally beating up on them, so it just wasn't worth it. (The final score was 59-13, but they were playing 3rd and 4th string players the entire second half. It was 49-3 at half time.)

Corbyn threw up on the way home (we're pretty sure because of the macadamia nuts because he was fine the rest of the day). He ate an entire bag of popcorn while watching shows on the iPad when we got home (while we listened to the rest of the game on the radio) and then had 2 hot dogs and ran around like crazy with all his friends at our ward chili cook off that night.

It was a total shame that this game had to be the 2nd Cosmo's Kids Club game. When we were putting Corbyn to bed the night before he was all jazzed about the game and said he wanted to stay for the whole thing - next year, buddy! At least he got to meet Cosmo - he can't stop talking about it!
