bitten by the performing bug

We had our Annual Primary Talent show tonite, and it was so much fun! As a presidency we did a skit and a couple little acts. It was so much fun. It reminded me how much I really love to be on stage and perform. I know it was just some silly skits, but it reminded me of roadshows and drama classes I took in HS and college. I know I didn't do a lot that you all might know or remember, but it has always been something that I enjoy.
Well, it seems that I have passed that gene on to my boys. They've been bitten by the performance bug and they loved it! They sang and "played" guitar to the Jonas Bros. song, "That's just the way we roll". Weston actually sang the whole song, in the mic and they all rocked out on the guitar. Mike and I were impressed. When they came and sat down, Weston says to Mike, "That felt sooo good. I want to do that again." Later in the night, he got some of my props and acted out characters from our skits while we were cleaning up. I loved seeing them get into it all, but it seems Weston really got bit hard!!

So look out for the tenney boys... they might be selling out arenas someday.

Sorry, no pictures... I know, can you believe I forgot my camera for their big debut????

Try something new

The purpose of this particular post is to encourage you to try something new. This was my first attempt at a diaper cake, and I'm pretty happy with it! It was fun and not too hard to do. I put it together while watching "so you think you can dance" with Mike. I'm throwing a shower tomorrow, for my friend who is expecting her 2nd set of twins. She is quite a woman!
I had seen and heard about other diaper cakes, but I was a bit unsure about doing one myself. I'm not really very crafty, but I wanted to attempt it and see if I could do it. Now, I know it's not perfect, but I was happy with the outcome and I'm excited for my friend to see it.
So, whatever it might be for you.. if you want to try something new, do it! It's fun to challenge yourself.

guilt trip

Hope the post is good enough... I am losing precious sleep to please all of you! :) I'm gonna be hating it 2moro.

alright, I get the hint!!!

Many of you have been urging me to get blogging again, so I'm going to try to get a little more consistant. I guess you're all tired of seeing Aiden hanging upside down. lol.

I do have much to add, Easter pics, Mylie's 1st b-day, etc.. I won't get to it all but here's a little something.... Mylie is getting so big! She celebrated her first birthday on March 30th. (I know.. I'm sooo late.) She has had a great year and has brought so much love and joy to our family. She is the princess of our home and neighborhood! She is really easy going and loves people. A real social butterfly. Gee, I wonder where she gets that from??? We are loving watching her grow up and look forward to fun ahead.

After the city Easter Egg Hunt

Her very own one of a kind Raggedy Ann doll from Great Grandma Jackie. She loves it! Thanks Grandma!!

Mylie loved being sung to for her 1st birthday.
She loved the cake too! Yum!
