It's amazing how fast kids grow. He loves, loves Sunbeams! Now if we can get Tanner to love nursery as much as Vance loves Sunbeams and loved nursery... :)

Might I add that it is much easier to push Tanner and Jillian in the double stroller over Tanner and Vance. What is that? About a 20 pound difference or so...
Yay! We love Holly and Jilly.

Last weekend I didn't want to be left out. I had already seen my brother and sister's play, but Holly was in town and my entire family but me went on Friday night to it and so on Saturday I joined them. It was the first time we'd all been at a play together in a long, long time- at least since I've graduated and probably longer. Anyway, I wasn't sure if the opportunity for us all to be together for a play would happen again so off I went. It was a lot of fun. You can see a picture and read a little about it from my Dad's blog here. I didn't have to go to the bathroom even though I look like I do with the way I'm standing in the picture.

It is easy to forget how much children grow and how much they learn. Check out this post from last May. Vance has gotten much better with his speech. We were finally able to start up speech again. He hasn't gone since we moved (mostly for things out of my hands). He is leaps and bounds ahead of where he was last year and I imagine I'll say the same in another year too.
Vance was repeating me, but I'm sure you noticed how silly he was being. I guess I can't ask for everything.

There are no traffic lights in your town.
Your husband's graduating class is bigger than your entire high school (freshman-senior).
You can name everyone in your graduating class.
There is no Wal-Mart, heck there is barely a small grocery store at all!
You have to drive 20 minutes to any mall, 60 for a decent mall.
Your town has an annual "Community Days" where they show their community pride.
What is Community Days? Well, there are different things that go on and it is an excuse for a small town to show there pride. There's a "Miss Smalltown" pageant. On Saturday there is what they call a "Fun Run" (5K and 10K), but if you are like me that is an oxymoron. My mom has done the 5k a handful of times because she is awesome like that. There's a breakfast (I've never attended that), and a parade that goes up one street and down the other. We took the boys to it this year and last year. They had a good time waving and getting candy. Vance actually sat on my lap and waved. The only time he got up was to get candy. I was impressed. Tanner waved too and got way sticky (he's checking out his sticky hand in his picture). When we're lucky a play falls into that same weekend. (and as you can tell from previous posts that a highlight for my family)

We enjoyed the play. They did "Once Upon a Mattress". I don't know how familiar anyone is to this play, but it is super funny!
Rose was the cutest Lady in Waiting on the stage (I know I am biased). She is in the navy blue dress. Glen is a senior so this is his last play. He was a mute King (one of the leads). He had the funniest part in the entire play. I'm not just saying that because he is my brother either (even though we did already establish that I am biased.) He he is below. *Side Note my mom sewed most of that costume.

I enjoy listening to conversations that Vance and Tanner have with each other. They are always fairly short. Either one of them makes the other mad, one ignores the other, or one loses interest in the conversation. Here is one from this morning (after Tanner had napped)
Tanner: Wall-E? (meaning he wants to watch Wall-E)
Vance: No, Tanner. Wall-E's in the car.
At which point Tanner turned to me for what he wanted. Vance was right. Wall-E was in our dvd player in the car. (what Vance didn't know was that the car was in the garage because Stephen has found someone to carpool with to work. Yay!)
Anyway, if all of this wasn't enough cuteness then I don't know what is.

Oh, if anyone is interested I am now a primary teacher (8 turning 9 class) at church. That was the class they originally called me to in my last ward, but then moved me to the Sunbeams so I guess I'm getting my chance to teach that age now.
