So let's be honest... how many times have you checked my blog looking for an update before you were pleasantly surprised to see a new post? Why do I ask this question? Because I know the routine... you sign onto your blog and begin the monotonous process of going through your list of friends, trying to remember to click on their list of friends that you religiously or maybe only periodically stalk. As each blog begins to come up you look for the old blog posting (because you've looked so many times that you can assign the post with the blog) so that you can just as quickly go on to the next disappointing blog that hasn't been updated. Therefore, when someone does have a new post, it can be- believe it or not- almost exhilarating. Thankfully you always have a few faithful ones on your list that post consistently and frequently, therefore the irrational and all too frequent blog stalking is validated and gives you no reason to change your behavior. Yes I have clicked on each and every one of your blogs only to be disappointed by no new post so I'm thinking maybe the same has happened on mine.

That being said, I'm updating my blog!!! Yeah. So what do I have to give you? Mucho. These are my handsome boys all ready to go to church. I'll tell you what, in my eyes, they are quite the lookers. I was laughing though, because we get all ready to go to church, we get there, sit down, and I swear all hell breaks loose. Both boys are squirming out of my arms trying to get to the aisle where freedom awaits them. I tackle Dallin down, give Porter a bottle and feel like maybe things have settled down. Well, they did... for about 5 minutes. After Porter finished his bottle, he was on a mission. Porter's personality is just that by the way... he has a mission. So when he gets his mind on something, it isn't easy to deter him from accomplishing it. And today there was just no stopping him. I take him to the back of the room to stand and listen, but that wasn't cutting it. I finally take him to the foyer where Dallin has somehow joined us. At some point the white flag was raised. Do whatever you want kids, just stay alive and don't bother me!! Ha ha, just kidding. But it was definitely one of those hours. If they could only behave as nicely as they look, things would be well!!




So on Friday we were watching TV when a Sonic commercial came on for their new Chocolate Malt Shake. They give a very solid advertisement, leaving your mouth watering. (Did I mention the closest one to us is like an hour away? I think it is pretty cruel for them to air those commercials here,but that's a whole different story!) Anyway, they give their ending line, "Sonic's got 'em, some don't" or however it goes. Well upon hearing that, Dallin turns to me with big ole eyes and says, "Mom... I want a chocolate shake." The intonation in his voice was perfect. I was like, "Absolutely, who wouldn't after that!" After Yosh got home from work, we all loaded up and went to Mel's Diner for a fantastic chocolate shake.

The funny thing is we ordered one shake for us all to share. Dallin maybe took one sip. When we would ask him if he wants a drink, he'd say, "I'm just drinking my water." I think the boys might have pulled the old bait and switch on us because Dallin wanted none and Porter literally had that cup empty in 5 minutes. That is pretty quick for a little one year old.


Last but not least, I know those of you that know I got braces but haven't seen my have just been dying for a pic with the new gear!! Ha ha, but here it is.....


The end result better be worth because as of right now, I just feel like all of my teeth are going to fall out. Let's hope that is not the case!

Anyway, stay tuned for the much anticipated Halloween pics. My little Cookie Monster and Elmo are a cute little match marching around!

Lant Family said...

So I love the new Braces. Do you have top and bottom? I bet they hurt. When did you for sure get them on? I as well was happy for a new update.

Laura said...

Baby Got Back said...

That is the funniest thing I ever read. And your boys are soo handsome...can we arrange marriages to my two girls...(no mormons don't do that, i'm just joking).

I didn't think you needed braces...did you?

glad you updated.

What a cute fam! Dallin is seriously a babe. You're going to have to watch him when he gets older, he'll have the girls going wild. You'd be so proud of me Gay...I'm training for a 10k. I know it's no marathon (or half marathon) like you're runnin' all the time, but for me, it's huge! It's not until March, so I've some time, thank heaven.

English Garden said...

Yeah on the update!! Also as I was reading your blog I was thinking about a room that is between the primary room and nursery that has sound piped in, you could take your boys in there and still listen, plus its a pretty boring room so maybe they would eventually want to go back into the chapel. Just a suggestion, we are at the same point with Sara so maybe we will race you for the room each Sunday!!

Greenwood said...
