Go COUGS/Scary Night!!


Rhett and I are huge BYU fans! We went to the game yesterday with my sister and her husband. It was sooo much fun! The crowd was incredible! Enough said, I posted the scoreboard in case anyone missed it! :)

Something funny that happened this morning (well funny now that nothing really did happen) Cops and Robbers....
About 4am this morning, I heard a soft alarm going off. I laid there for a minute trying to figure out what it was. I finally got out of bed and stood at the top of the stairs. I realized it was our house alarm! I was freaking out! Usually when the alarm goes off it is REALLY loud. All these thoughts ran through my mind and I thought the burglar got in and turned down the volume so the alarm wouldn't be so loud. (after talking to Rhett, this is impossible, thank goodness!) I ran back to our bedroom and told Rhett someone was in our house and to grab his gun. In the meantime, I ran down the hall into Dax's room and shut the door. I was so scared I didn't even think about getting Brae and bringing her into Dax's room with me. Am I stupid or what!! I figured Rhett better shoot the person before they make it to the bedrooms. I peeked open the door and saw Rhett standing against the wall holding his gun. I was literally shacking! It was a scene from a movie, but in MY HOUSE! I whispered loud and told him to go downstairs. (He would never admit it, but he was a little nervous!) Well to make a long story short, Rhett made his way downstairs with his gun ready to fire and found no one. I still made him search the house just in case. He turned the alarm off and called the Alarm Company. Needless to say, the phone line that our alarm is connected to went down for a few minutes which caused the alarm to go off. It was a silent buzz because it wasn't a "real" emergency. Basically just to notify us that the connection was down for a minute. Note to the alarm company...Please call us next time!! Looking back at this incident, we just laugh! Rhett standing there pointing his gun...would he really have shot someone?? Who knows. I'm just glad it was nothing!

That is a freaky story! We have one like it only my husband handled it a little differently (bless his heart). One night I SWEAR I heard our deadbolt turn on our front door. I told Brett "Someone is opening our front door!" His reply? A sleepy "Then why don't you go downstairs and check it out?"

MY HERO....

Again: Bless his heart.

That is so scary Linds!! Paul and I have false alarms all the time also! A few nights ago our alarm was going off but it was really silent, and unfortunately we don't have a gun! So we laid there trying to think about what to do. Then I got up enough courage to go turn it off and it was just an outage like yours was. Freaky!! I also called the alarm and they said the power just went off. So that's why it was silent too =) Needles to say we are going to get a gun sometime soon. Any suggestions? I'm so glad you guys are ok!

I would FREAK out too! I can practically feel adrenaline rushing through my body just thinking about it! Pretty funny now, right?!?

Ha ha, this is a scene from a movie. It's funny to picture, but I know at that moment it was probably terrifying! Go Rhett!
