Thomas had another Junior Jazz game on Saturday, and once again, he was the cutest little perimeter player on the team. He doesn't really like to touch the ball or get into the rustle of kids, but that's okay. He still has a fun time and is the team's scorekeeper, though no one else keeps score. On Saturday, he informed me that his team won 7-3. Go Jazz!
After the game, we headed up to Idaho Falls again. My brother gave his mission report on Sunday and Chris and I, Ann-Michelle and Todd, Kristie and Todd, and my dad and Caitlan, sang a musical number and my mom accompanied. You'll have to ask Becky if it was any good! (Thanks again for coming, Beck-- you're the best!)
Kristie brought her new little dog over to my parents' house on Saturday. Gordon is in LOVE. It almost makes me want to get him a little dog-- he is just so in love with puppies! I am wishing they made little life-like robot dogs that acted just like real dogs, minus the care-taking involved. I'd be first in line.
One of my favorite parts of the weekend was meeting Becky and Elena at Chili's for our girl's night out. They really are two of the most incredible people I know, and I love that they let me hang out with them. Plus, you really can't beat Chili's chips and salsa... I want some right now!
Jake's talk on Sunday was awesome. It's always strange to see your younger siblings turn into adults. I remember Chris sharing a similar sentiment when his sister, Emily, got married. You grow up thinking of them as little kids, picking on them and bossing them around, and then all of the sudden, they turn into these amazing people who are stronger, wiser, and more mature than you ever gave them credit for. It was very touching to see the growth and wisdom that my brother gained on his mission. I felt very honored to know him, and I felt inspired by his spirit.
Now it's back to Monday and back to life. Ah, Monday-- so fun...
My funny little two-year-old has been very interested in moving things around lately. He has always been rather inventive when it comes to getting what he wants. I've found chairs and other objects pushed up to counters and tables, and opened cabinets and empty wrappers left as evidence of his mischief. Yesterday, I got a huge kick out of his newest chair-moving escapade-- a barricade!
To finish things off, I've managed to capture Gord singing his new favorite song, "I've been working on the railroad." Of course, in order to get him to sing it, I had to sing, too. It will be hard to ignore me since I'm holding the camera and louder than Gordon, but if you can try, I'd appreciate it.
