The new Idaho State Junior Miss...

Madison Leonard

(yes, little sister of yours truly, who in addition to looking fabulous and winning the judges over with her jazzy voice, garnered a bunch of cash-ola for school and a ticket to the Junior Miss nationals in Mobile Alabama! In June!)


We had a great time cheering her on and dressing up for Walmart (what--you don't go in costume in midnight in Pocatello??). Rock on Ruski.

The finalists.

Parental units finally getting to congratulate Madi -- you just can't resist those Leonard girl cheeks.

If you can't get enough of this hottie...check out her talent here. She sang "The Nearness of You", originally recorded by Hobie Carmichael, made famous by Norah Jones. Enjoy.

Ra-ra-ra....goooooooo cougars!!!

BYU 14 Oklahoma 13.

The only time I have ever seen Provo in quasi-rioting car-honking, student-running, impromptu dance party bliss. All that was missing was the tipping over of cars and looting (the almost ubiquitous lack of alcohol making it hard for even the most die-hard fans to break into that group of lawless activity).

So awesome.
