Random Stuff

I got a call today from some one in the Primary Presidency....(you can imagine that my heart stopped as I thought he might have reverted to his D#!@ it ways). Thankfully, the conversation went something like this:

Sis F: "Jen I just have to tell you the funniest thing that happened in primary today."

Me: "uh-oh"

Sis F: "I asked for a volunteer to say the opening prayer and Jack's hand shot right up! We all bowed our heads and got ready for his prayer .......

"I'd like to bear my testimony, I know this church is true, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

They figured that was good enough for the opening prayer and Jack sat back in his seat so proud of himself.

Some cute singing BATH TIME pictures of the boys.

Ted and I made a list this year...It's called 50 in 5. Basically 50 things we want to do in the next 5 years. Well, this weekend we got to cross off Swing Dancing Lessons. We learned the East Coast Swing which was SOOOO much harder than it looked. Well at least for me! I knew Tami would catch on pretty quick since she grew up dancing but during the lesson I kept watching her and she was out of control!!! I kept thinking "Am I that lame that I can't figure this Rock step, triple step stuff out?" Ummmm can you say NATIONAL SWING DANCE CHAMPION!! Hello! Nice Tami. Not exactly the information you keep secret when you are paying someone else for dance lessons. It was way fun though. We still need to learn West Coast, Charleston, Jitterbug and the one I'm really excited for...The Lindy Hop. Should be fun times.

Little Awesome

This is the newest member of our family, my little nephew Austin Ryan. Since my sister Jackie has turned into such a BLOG FLAKE I'm posting these shots for her and our family who hasn't seen the darling little bug yet. My dad who "thinks" he is so funny nicked named him AWESOME Austin. His big sister Sidney thinks he is pretty Awesome too! They are so cute together. I love the picture of her just staring at her little brother.

The Hot Dogs

Jack & Elle finished ski school last month. They did so good! Olympics here we come!

After one of Jack's lessons we hit the slopes together. Probably not the best idea...since it had started snowing, he was tired, cold and had to go to the bathroom. I could tell he was about to lose it, so in all my "Positive Mom" power I began saying....

"Way to go Jack, you're such a HOT DOG!"
his whiny response:
"I'm not a HOT DOG...I'm just a BOY!"

catching some "air" off their favorite jump

The Magic Tree that gave out candy before they started down the slopes.

Proud Momacita's had some fun too!
