My life is filled with boys these days...first things first: Helio and Julianne won "Dancing with the Stars" tonight which was most excellent. I possibly would have thrown a "Parker fit" had Marie Osmond won so I am very happy with Helio! My sneaky dad tried calling me and spoiling the surprise because he watched the results live and I was an hour behind on TIVO! BOY he can be a pain! j/k!
Now for the rest of my boys.
The rest of Thanksgiving weekend was really fun. We got to hang out with Darren and Susan's family, which is always non-stop entertainment. I just keep laughing because I seriously cannot believe all the boys the Clark family is producing! One day it will all make sense I'm sure, but for now I just keep scratching my head. Curtis and Shandy: I hope you have 12 children because maybe ONE of them will be a girl we can spoil rotten! Mike and Kim, just think how loved your girls would be if you moved back to Utah...I'm just sayin', something to think about! Grandma Clark would shove all the dirty, stinky boys aside just to spend time in the kitchen with her FAVORITE girls, Courtney and Camilla! :)
Here's some fun photos of all the boy happenings last weekend:
Dexter and Kevin. Dexter took a serious liking to Kevin this weekend. I've NEVER seen Shandy laugh so hard, at Dexter, laughing so hard. Kevin had Dexter wheezing he was laughing so much! (Oh gag, I just noticed Dexter was eating ramen noodles!)
Here are Parker and Ethan blowin' some bubbles. These two seemed to develop a cousin-bond this weekend, which was really fun to watch. Maybe Ethan can give Parker some lessons on how to talk really cool (either that or Parker needs to teach Ethan to stop smoking! just kidding, just kidding!) For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, Ethan has a really really really rhaspy voice and he always has, it's hysterical and it's his trademark so I hope it never changes! Oh yeah, maybe Darren can put the "Grandma's kitties" story on his blog, it's priceless!
This next series of photos you just have to try and picture the chaos in your mind. We wanted an "all boy cousins picture". In theory, this would be a precious photo that would definitely need to be framed. We could display it at all their mission farewells. Grandma would probably need one at work to show off to all her co-workers for sure! Well, what happens when you try to round up a bunch of crazy boys for a picture? Darren even got in on the action! I'm telling the honest truth here, each of these pictures only has about 5 seconds between them. I just kept shooting because I knew that ONE of them had to turn out great! See for yourself... (does Ethan's big toe look seriously misplaced in the second picture? lol!)
And of course, I couldn't have a blog posting about boys without mentioning the one that is "baking" right now. I had an ultrasound yesterday. I asked the ultrasound tech to see if "it" was STILL a boy. So, he produces this picture and says "here is your no-doubt-about-it shot"
I must say, I think baby Cash Baadsgaard has NOTHING on baby Sweet! Oh yeah, that's my boy! HA! I'm totally kidding! Nalani, my dad TOTALLY made me say that! boys, boys, boys, it doesn't matter how old they are, they will always be the same! :)
