It turns out that having a nice new work phone and a lot of time with Emily in the mornings that I happen to take a lot more videos and pictures of her. The other day she just started to sing a song, and I had no clue where she sang it before. Very similar to Brianna when she sang "Baa Baa Black Sheep" constantly. Here would be her "Old McDonald" video but I will have to delay that. Turns out I'm having issues posting a video. I'll throw a picture in just to suffice for now.
This past Sunday we went to my grandmas for a Thanksgiving style lunch. A typical Evans meal. There was a whole lot little Brianna did not want to eat, so she asked for a pear. She got her pear but grandma said she had to eat her food first. After she suffered through eating bits and pieces, Kristy gave in and let her eat the pear. Not so fast! Grandma didn't approve and took the pear from her and told her she needs to finish her lunch since it was so much work to make. The look on Bri's face was priceless. If it was us or either of our parents, she would have argued back and probably gotten her way. She was speechless. Just sat there wondering what just happened. We couldn't help but laugh. After she choked down some more food and spit out some squash in the bathroom she finally got her pear. It was very funny.
Last week those Wildcats of Kansas State got by the Cyclones once again! They do everything they need to do to win, and they have a chance to make a ton of noise this year.
This week ISU travels to Stillwater, OK to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The same Cowboys that ISU knocked out of the National Championship game last year. Fortunately, this is not the same OK State team. They lost arguably their best offensive players in school history. This year they are playing very well on the offensive side of the ball but they are lacking a relevant defense. The ISU offense has not been good at all, and you can even call it awful. I don't think it can get any worse and matches up with a below average defense, this could be the week it wakes up.
I believe the ISU defense is good enough to shut down OSU, it's just the offense needs to score enough to win. I am taking ISU in this one by a couple touchdowns at the very least.
