Talent Night

The YM of the ward sponsored a talent night again this year. Last year they called it a lip sync contest (which Ammon won), but this year they held a talent night. It was one of the funnest nights we've been to in a long time. Some girls performed, but they weren't very well prepared. This was the night for the guys to shine and shine they did!

Ammno did a lip sync to the song, "Fireflies" by Owl City. He got a standing ovation when he was done. He wasn't the least bit afraid and knew every word. It was awesome!

This young man (13), Nathan Jones, played the best drum solo I've ever heard in my ilfetime outside of a professional drummer. It blew me out of the water. We were all screaming and clapping for him. Amazing performance!

These boys are in Ammon's teacher's quorum. Brig Webb and Johnny Weakly played a great song. Johnny was on the keyboards, Brig played guitar and sang. Great job!! A man in our ward is teaching them and he is doing a wonderful job with these boys.

This boy, Zach Lundberg had two girls come up and mess up two Rubics cubes. While they were doing that, he told some facts about Rubics cubes and then proceeded to solve both of them under 3 minutes. He solved them in 2 minutes 20 seconds. We didn't believe he could do it.
Other acts in the talent show included a boy doing a routine with his weapons - he's has a black belt in Karate. He was really talented and it was fun to watch. Another 14 year old played the electric guitar and that, too, blew us away. One played a piano solo he made up (like Adam used to do) and it was very nice. Two boys (seniors) did a dance to the song, "Move it, Move it!" that was clever and fun to watch. I believe the ward will now do this as an annual event. It was such a great way to show off the talents of these kids.

Here's a picture of Kaitlin, Ammon and Dad playing Wii. Don't bowl with Dad - he killed us! Don't golf with Ammon - he's got a sweet swing. Don't play baseball with Kaitlin - she's got a mean swing. Don't box with Mom - she's plain mean.

Ammon can sometimes beat me in bowling - but then everybody can beat me in all the games! It's still fun.

my life

I want to reflect on my life these past years from 1995 to now so here it goes. I remember when my mom found out she was going to give birth to me . and I remember when mom and I played hide and seek together oh good times and I also remember my hospital experience that was scary. I hope this year will be good.
