Well, it's that time again. Tom and I have to speak in church tomorrow! I try and work on it a little each day. But, now that it's down to crunch time it seems like I've been thinking of all kinds of reasons not to work on it... like blogging! Oh how I wish I could just get up and give a talk without worrying, stressing, and being extremely nervous! But, that isn't me and probably never will be! I guess you have to look on the bright side and think about all the things you learn, which always seems to be a lot.

On to a different topic! Evan always begs me to take his picture and then he just makes faces! So here are just a few of the crazy faces he makes:

First video: Evan has this Sesame Street Sings Karaoke video that he likes. The other day we watched it and then he got the bright idea that we should "play" karaoke. He insisted that I sit down like I was the audience and he even used a diaper box as his "stage". Then we all had to take turns singing our songs. Too bad you don't get to see the video of me singing!





Next video: Jordyn has made some GREAT progress when it comes to self feeding. I have to give most of the credit to Jordyn's school. (Her school in Idaho starting working on it with her) They sent home a note saying they were continuing working on getting her to hold onto her spoon. That same day, I was feeding her lunch and she reached out to grab her spoon! She has NEVER done that before (for me at least) and I wasn't even expecting it. Just over the past few days, she's even improved more. She reaches out for her spoon and pulls it to her mouth every single bite. So, enjoy the video of her awesome progress!

Evan is looking like such a big boy, isn't it amazing how one day they wake up and look so much older! Congrats on the new house too by the way, as I was waiting out those last weeks of misery I mean pregnancy, I was thinking of you! Moving is never fun, but having a new house definitely is, ENJOY!!!

The last thing you told us was that Jordyn was touching her cup and bowl. She is definitely doing more than that in this video--how neat. I have the feeling that this is just the beginning of more firsts for her. (Does this sound like her grandma or what?)

WOW!!!! What great progress Jordyn is making. It made me cry to see the progress she is making. I am so happy that her new school is continuing what we started. They are all getting so big and I miss all of you! Keep me posted!

Hey
I was talking to a friend of mine that lives there in Gillette, and you are in the ard I grew up in! The primary president is fabulous, I hope you get a chance to know her. I am not sure I can vouch for any one else anymore, jK I am kind of jealous of your ward, not so jealous that you have to speak in it though, hope it went well.
