Thanksgiving at the Hills

We spent Thanksgiving with the Hills and Thompsons down in Newnan, Ga near Atlanta. It's great to be around family during the holidays. The Webb's and Harpers are on our good list for Christmas, so we'll get to spend more time in Georgia with friends and family in late December. All these Georgians are pulling us towards Georgia and making it seem like the place to be, though were happy in NC (for now). We went Ice skating in downtown Atlanta. The night before we made ginger bread mobile homes, on display here.

I was not as diligent as a I should have been photographing the Thanksgiving dinner and everybody. Here is a sweet compilation video the Hills made that video and pictures from the thanksgiving festivities near the end.

It snowed and I can prove it!

Were having a cold streak here in North Carolina. It snowed last night and there was still some flakes on our cars when we went to work. Tonight it is going to get down to 21 degrees. Brrrr!

Rivalry Week

The final play of the game the last time BYU played at Utah. To hear the U's announcers make the radio call click here

This Saturday BYU heads up to Salt Lake for their annual rivalry football game against the University of Utah. Every year is a big game, but this one matches two nationally ranked top 15 teams. BYU has won the last two meetings and this Saturday is set to be another classic competition.

We'll be watching here in Raleigh at a local sports bar. The wife actually thinks Utah will win, so this post reflects only Ryan's views and is not an official Cheyney and Ryan post.

Right now the Vegas line has Utah winning by four points. Odds are against either team winning three years in a row these days. Utah is ranked #7 and BYU is ranked #14. But the experts are wrong.

Here is my prediction: Utah feels a lot of pressure and has the most to lose in this game. BYU comes out and pulls ahead, deflating the till then undefeated Utes fragile ego's. BYU's offense is great this year, and that means a lot at a place known for their great offense. Utah rallies a little but can't get back. When BYU shows up, magic happens. Final score 33-24 BYU

So what is your prediction?

Stolen phone

I thought my phone was lost somewhere in a puddle in the parking lot. Unfortunately, it was at Ryan's work amongst the not most trustworthy. Lost turned into stolen by a teenage girl. Her cute grandmother called the office to report she had stolen it and that she could not force her to return it. She has been texting and making calls for 2 days. I originally reported it lost but they didn't cancel the service. So NOW the phone has been canceled, a new one has been ordered and I don't have any phone numbers!

It sure is going to be fun entering them all in manually. But will you please give me your number so I can call you some day! Just email me!

Congratulations to the President Elect!

"Political opponents can have a little trouble seeing the best in each other. But I've had a few glimpses of this man at his best and I admire his great skill, energy and determination. It's not for nothing that he's inspired so many folks in his own party and beyond.

Senator Obama talks about making history. And he's made quite a bit of it already. There was a time when the mere invitation of an African-American citizen to dine at the White House was taken as an outrage and an insult in many quarters. Today, it's a world away from the crude and prideful bigotry of that time. And good riddance. I can't wish my opponent luck, but I do wish him well.

Whatever the outcome next month, Senator Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and for his country and I congratulate him."
