Superstar- Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

My daughter LOVES to sing. She walks around the house ALWAYS singing (I've blogged about this before). Today the following conversation took place:

Brooke: "Tyler, sing the Song of a Bird song."
Tyler: "Mom, I'm a superstar; I ONLY sing my own songs."

She then proceeded to give me the following performance:

(I filmed this on my camera but it had to be rotated 90 degrees so the quality isn't quite as good and it cuts off part of her head during some of it- you get the idea though. Thanks Sarah for your help!)

OK so when I was little, I didn't even dare to look at people so I'm pretty sure this whole preforming thing is not coming from me. I can only assume it is coming from Ammon. In fact, I know it is- I've seen his Artist Formally Known as Prince renditions. It really is something to behold!

PS- Tyler better be nice to me for the next 20 years or this will end up on her wedding video!!!

Do You Think it's Time to Move Out of the Holler???

American Idol

So I have never been a die hard American Idol fan but last season, I kept hearing all the hype about David Archuleta so I decided to tune in and check him out for myself. He has such an amazing voice that I decided to stick around until he got booted. Well, that brought me to the final show so I became pretty familiar with all the contestants. My mom is a die hard fan and LOVES watching American Idol so she bought tickets for the concert. She invited Ammon and me to go as well as our friends the Petersons. We had a really good time. One of the highlights of the evening was learning that our friend Grant has a MAJOR crush on Brooke White. His crush for her is so big that he couldn't help but make an "I Love Brooke White" poster with a picture of him and Brooke hugging each other (Brooke was super imposed over a picture of his wife!!!!) Crazy, I know! When she came on stage, I think I saw a tear rolling down his cheek! (It goes something like that- right Grant!). Anyway, below are some pictures from the fun night.

PS- OK, since Grant is our bishop maybe I better end the rumors right here before he gets in trouble! His crush is only kind of huge and Ammon helped a little with the poster. However, I could have sworn I did see the tear!

Oink Oink

Tonight at dinner, I told Tyler to stop playing with her food. She said, "But mom, my bread looks like a pig." She had a point!!! (Sorry about the picture quality- it was taken with my phone)

And the Answer is....

Tyler: "Boston, I'm thinking of an animal that is black and white, and milk comes out of it's bum."
Boston (without ANY hesitation): "A Cow."
Tyler: "Yep."

Why is it Raining... in Our Car???

Yesterday we were driving and all of a sudden Ammon and I both felt raindrops on our arms. That seemed odd for multiple reasons; first, we were in our car and second, it wasn't even raining outside. Ammon and I both looked at each other perplexed and then at the same moment turned around and saw Ryder, flinging around a toothbrush he had been sucking on for the previous hour or so. SO GROSS!!!!

The Great Wolf Lodge

Over the Fourth of July, my dad took our whole family to The Great Wolf Lodge in Dayton, Ohio. We had such a good time. The kids had SO much fun. It's such a good place to take kids because it's so kid friendly. The rooms are made just for kids and the water park is all indoor with lots of little kid places to play. Boston has asked me EVERY DAY at least once since we got back when we can go again. This was the second year in a row that we went so I'm hoping we go next year again! Here are some pics of the fun!

Words of Wisdom

The following conversation took place about 7 years ago. It was between Ammon and his mom regarding this wonderful girl Ammon was dating and about to propose to :)

Ammon- "Brooke is so amazing . She has only said 2 swear words in her whole life."
Ammon's mom- "That's because she doesn't have any kids yet."

Oh so true!!!!

How Do You Offend EVERYONE from Kentucky in Just One Short Paragraph?

Recently, the contract of our friends who is a news anchor here was not renewed. The reason stated was that management wanted to find someone locally who better connected with the people of Kentucky. Below is the comment Ammon submitted to the TV station.

"I heard that Don Hudson's contract is not being renewed in order to bring in an "insider" I am not originally from KY but have been here for about 6 years. I started watching your news when Don arrived, because he didn't sound like he was from KY and actually sounded intelligent. It is a shame to lose Don; I guess I will have to just read the news from now on."

We Wish!!!

Today we drove past a Baskin Robbins that we have never been to before. Tyler was so excited to tell me that she yelled, "MOM LOOK!! WE'VE NEVER BEEN TO THAT ONE BEFORE BUT IT'S A SEVENTY NINE HUNDRED FLAVORS!!!"

Don't Hate Me!

Ok, first off let me just say, I LOVE the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. It's entertaining and really fun to read. But, that's about the extent of it for me. That being said, I AM SO OVER THE OBSESSION!!!! Like to the point that I almost don't want to read Breaking Dawn because this whole obsessive madness is driving me nuts. If I hear one more story about someone who was the first in line to get the book at midnight on August 2nd, or the first one to finish reading it after just 24 hours, or the one taking a family vacay to Forks, etc, etc, etc, I may just loose it!!!!! C'mon girls, it's fiction. Going to Forks ain't gonna get you any closer to Edward- as much as we all hate to admit it (and even if it were a true story- Edward only has eyes for Bella so just give up!!!!). I know I'm not making friends here by admitting this but I just had to get it off my chest. Sorry for the insincerity in handling this delicate matter. If everyone could just chill a pinch about the whole series, I think the world might just be a better place. Ok, let the HATE comments come.
