What do you get when you bear your testimony?

In Brother Harwards class, you get a pizza and root beer float party. Nate teaches the 10 year olds in the primary and this year they have been learning about Joseph Smith. He has been encouraging them to bear their testimony and what better way than to offer (or bribe, whatever) a class party. The kids in his class are so bright and seem to know so much about the gospel it is amazing. I have substituted for him a few times when he has been out of town and I have to say, they are very immpressive. Nate just loves his calling. I think he relates to the kids better than adults:) I have taught in primary on and off many years and I still just love Relief Society to much. Not Nate, he prefers to be with the kids, singing and "entertaining" them. He is such a good teacher and most important the kids LOVE Bro. Harward!!!

Happy 4th Birthday Parks!!

Parksy turns 4 today. Yeah!!! He tells everyone he is 5 and there is no convincing him otherwise but trust me, he's 4. He is such the little jokester in the family and is always making us laugh, especially Whit. That boy can speak 3 words and Whit is giggling up a storm. He is always doing funny things and wearing crazy stuff. He told me the other day I was HOT! Who doesn't love kids that say stuff like that? He also told me he wanted a "Blackberry I-Pod" for his birthday. Where do they get this stuff from? He loves to watch Scooby Doo and hang out with me ALL day. He rarely likes to leave my side so going to school will be interesting. He always has funny bathroom stories and generally is a fun, outgoing child. We love him and I am so glad he is part of our Family. Happy Birthday PARKS! We Love You!

Infomercials Blah Blah Blah...

So my baby has had yet another ear infection and I seem to be up at weird hours watching t.v. I must have seen over 20 in the past few days and all I can think is "What the heck can I start selling on T.V.?" I swear you could sell crap on an infomercial (yes I mean crap literally, like poop) and I think because the way they market people will buy it. I was sucked in by all the infomercials this past weekend and if I wasn't too lazy and tired to go get my purse I probably would have bought them ALL! I really believe (while I'm watching them) that people loose 150 lbs. by rocking on an AB machine and that my closets will be transformed by new hangers and space saving vacumn suck bags or that I will instantly look 20lbs. lighter by wearing some tight body hugging shaper. What is wrong with me. Nate does hate door to door salesman because I can never say no. I have bought cleaner, magazines, meat- all sorts of things. I am posting this because I want a record for the day I become rich off my own infomercial and say to everyone who thinks I'm crazy, "How do you like me now?" (Of coarse I might not be able to keep my riches because I will probably have spent them on other, new and exciting junk on early morning tv.)
