On Saturday Faith and I watched the exciting but heartbreaking NDSU football game as they played Eastern Washington in the quarterfinals for their NCAA division. It was a great game and Faith had fun laughing at me as I yelled, cheered, jumped and danced. Every time I got excited she yelled, "Did you win yet mommy?"
Unfortunately no, I didn't win as the Bison lost in overtime. Oh well! They had a great season, one in which they weren't expected to get so far.

That evening, Grandpa Mike showed up bearing lots of gifts! He joined us for supper and of course we heard lots of stories about all the oilfield activity in Western North Dakota. He said many of the workers that had come here from the south left because of the winter weather. They are very short-handed and the people who do work and stay to work end up working very long days. Dad had just worked a 17-hour day in his truck the day before driving down to Bismarck.
We had a great visit, although Faith and Grandpa had to compete for talking time! The next morning, I got to join dad and my aunt Gail for breakfast at Perkins so it was fun to catch up with her as well.

Have a blessed week everyone and be sure to stay warm!
