May 2009: Eyan's New Favorite Song - Love Story meets Viva la Vida

My little Eyan loves music! He has a real ear and a great mind for memorizing. He is able to sing all kinds of songs even after only hearing them once. When he is not singing, he is humming. Humming playing legos, humming doing puzzles, humming...humming...humming. He doesn't even realize he's doing it. A little girl sang Taylor Swift's "Love Story" at our church's talent show and he has loved hearing it ever since. When we were forwarded this beautiful piano and cello duet arranged by LDS artist Jon Schmidt entitled "Love Story (Taylor Swift) meets Viva la Vida (Coldplay)" he found his favorite new song. We have watched it over and over. He told me he likes the "jello" guy:-) He also asks me each time we watch it what the doggie's name is, so I told him I would ask. If we hear back from Jon Schmidt we'll let you know what it is. I looked on Jon Schmidt's website and it takes you to a link that shows that this video is the 12th ranked video on YouTube, right below Twilight, Eminem, and Kanye West. Pretty awesome! Good for him.
Eyan would like to share this video with you to enjoy.
P.S. Make sure to pause my Playlist in order to enjoy the video!
P.P.S. A lot of the screen is cut off so if you want to see the whole picture visit the YouTube video here!

May 2009: "Would You Rather...?"

I'm sure all of you have heard of the board game "Would You Rather...?" or some version of it. Any "So You Married An Axe Murderer" movie fan would know it as well. Owen got a little version of it in his kid's meal at Arbys this week. Usually they are not that funny but some of these really made me chuckle at the images they conjured up.

"Would you rather...
have eyebrows that make a complete circle around your face OR
have flat eyelashes that stick out 10 inches and cannot be trimmed?

"Would you rather...
have long arms that hang all the way to the ground OR
be 7 feet tall but have only 2-foot legs?

"Would you rather...
have to turn around 3 times before you sit down a dog OR
do a little dance before you go through any doorway?

Can you imagine if we really had to choose some of this stuff? Maybe we had to do some form of it in heaven. Would you rather turn really red anytime you are embarrassed OR trip over yourself when everyone is watching? Wait I got both of these!
I would love to hear any fun questions you have heard and/or your answers.

My answers: definitely the eyelashes-my eyebrows are big enough already, the long arms-I'd fold them a lot, do a little dance-Mike told us all we had to do this when we got home, it was fun to watch our cute litte boys shake their booties as they walked in the house:-)

April 2009: More Family Photos

I lost the CD of our family photo shoot but found it last night! It was so fun to go through all of them. My boys are all so handsome. Look at how hot Mike is with his guns:-) I absolutely love how these came out. I wanted something different, something fun. I think it was a success!

May 2009: Third Time's the Charm

Well we are on to computer number 3 this year thanks to the generous Bennett family. Third time has got to be the charm. I am thinking about naming the computer in hopes that we will create some type of better relationship than the previous 2. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear them.

I think it will really take awhile for me to get back into using a computer. I have to admit it was rather nice in some regards not feeling tied to all the things the internet brings. I do look forward to catching up with you all.
