Callie is growing up. A couple of days ago she was having some spaghetti-os for a snack, but she folded her arms for us to pray. So I sat down to say prayers and she said her name, so I asked if she wanted to pray. She said ok, and I helped her and she prayed for the first time, and has prayed every time since then. It is so sweet, she actually does a pretty good job saying all the words back. I love it! She has learned at least one thing that we have been trying to teach her!!!

So, the girls and I were at Target getting a birthday present this morning and Callie is wandering the aisles looking for a present and we passed the endstand of Disney novelty toys. Well, I saw a few Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Little Einstein stuff that I thought for sure she would be loving, but I was wrong. Oh no, she went for the Hannah Montana microphone. And it sings. A lot. So, foolish me got the microphone for her because she loves to sing and dance so much, and she has played with it the whole day. She loves it, she sings along and loves that the microphone lights up. All I have to say is American Idol watch out, Callie just might hit your stage in a few years!

Today is mine and Ryan's five year anniversary. Holy cow, I can't even believe that we have been married for five years. Lots has happened in that time. We both graduated from college, moved six times, had two kids, bought a house, gone on two cruises, been employed, been unemployed and have loved each other through the whole thing! I am so lucky to have such a fantastic husband who works so hard for our family. We are so blessed to have been sealed in the temple and have our beautiful daughters sealed to us. Ryan is a fantastic husband and father, he is so sweet to me and he loves our girls. I am thankful for the last five years and anxiously look forward to the next five and more!

This last picture deserves an explaination. When I took her in for her check up, Dr. Morgan told me that she has thrush, so I have to giver the gentian violet. Yup, I have never seen a mouth this purple. The picture doesn't quite do it justice it is something to behold!

They were having a lot of fun playing yesterday, but Chari had a lot more luck getting them to actually look at the camera and smile. Hmm, I guess I need some more practice!

Thats right, I have only 10 pounds to go!!!!! I am sure hoping these last clinging pounds are gone by my brothers wedding next month, so I have less than six weeks to kick it into gear, yikes, when I put it that way, pretty scary!!!!
