Time for another picture purge!
Here's a beautiful princess taking a minute to talk on her phone. And another beautiful snow princess. My sister gave me this dress for Lilly and I was excited to use it again!

If you have nothing to do at 9:30 tomorrow (and you live around here) come run for the Teemants! They were in our Provo ward and that are absolutely the nicest and best people ever! Leo has been diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma and some friends put together a race and craft sale to help pay for treatments. It's going to be at Kiwanis Park in Provo at 9:30 am. Go to Five to Fight Cancer for more info. See you there!

Sophia had her very first piano recital last night. I was a little worried about starting her so young but she seems to be doing great and she loves going every week.
She was pretty nervous before hand but we were positive about it and told her she was going to do great. Right before she left she said, "It will be a little scary but not that scary and I'll be brave".
When we got there she saw the crowd and wouldn't even go in the door. Her teacher is amazing and spent some time with her getting her ready. She came and sat by me but when it was her turn she completely grabbed onto my leg and her teacher dragged her up there. She at least was brave enough to sit on the bench but this is how it went (an no that's not her playing - that would be her teacher accompanying silence)
During the rest of the recital she pretty much bawled (while Mabel cried and Lilly fell face first off of her chair - where was Doug? Young Men Campout. Hooray)
After a little coaxing, bribing (she got to pick out a Zhu Zhu pet after because they were out of mermaid barbies) and tough love. She decided she wanted to try again. Luckily her teacher was nice enough to let her and her reprise was much better. She said she only wanted to play one time instead of two but that was fine with me! I was just proud of her for doing it.
So there she is playing "Fuzzy Wuzzy" - they play a lot of classics. After she was done she kept saying things like, "I'm just so glad I did that" and " so many people just kept telling me I did a great job" and "I was just a little scared but then I just believed in myself and I did it!" We really were proud and she did awesome.
Here she is with her AMAZING teacher after. She's also our Primary President and she really is the best! Sophia's lucky to be taking from her and I'm so glad she let her start so young.
One more side note: If you notice she took off her sweater for the second performance (to dry her eyes). I didn't realize until we were at the store after that I never buttoned up her dress in the back! Sorry for all of you who not only had to witness the tears but got to witness the exposed back too! I'm a little embarassed. Oh well. It's pretty typical.

If you're in the Provo area (District 64 to be exact) vote for my dad tomorrow! He sent a sweet e-mail today that included this: " I phoned an elderly man who had requested my personal contact during a canvasser's visit to his home. He asked me to help him decide whom and what to vote for. As I had voted earlier that day, I described the ballot and each of the items it contained, offering my recommendation at each step and providing a brief rationale. At the end, he thanked me--'I've lived here a long time, and I've never had a call from a candidate before. Glad I could do this before I run out of chances.'"
