Oh Andy...

What can be said about Andy Bernard? I know people thinks he is annoying. I know people want to tell him to shut up. Some may even want to kick him in the teeth. I must admit I am not one of those people. I LOVE Andy Bernard! Of course the
show focuses on Jim and Pam because it is a sappy, mushy love story (which I support 100%). But I wanted to pay tribute to a character who is so often pushed under the rug. Or as many would like to see, punched in the face. Oh, not I. Indeed, not I.

P.S. Thanks be to Amy for insisting I watch The Office. And encouraging me to stick it out when I wanted to shut it off in the first 10 mintues. (BTW Amy: you still owe me: you still haven't watched Alias!) =)
P.S.S. I almost peed my pants when he started singing in pig latin. Just thought I'd leave everyone with that nice visual. And with that: good night.

So grown up...

Cameron gave his first prayer in Primary yesteday. We were soooo proud of him! He did so much better than I thought he would. I was afraid he would be shy or on the flipside, loud and irreverent. He went up all by himself, folded his arms and began:
"Dear Heavely Fahyer, grayful for dis day, grayful for all our blessings. Grayful for Mommy and Daddy and Ayexis..." At this point the primary president helps steer him in the proper direction! "Grayful for our teachers. Help us to listen. In da name of Jesus Chist, Amen." I was totally crying!!! We couldn't have been prouder parents. Anyways, it was cute and fun to see him in a Primary setting, with all the 'big kids'.

And of course I have to include more pictures. Tyler and I were laughing until we cried while looking at some of Alexis'. They're not very flattering of her, but they're too funny not to post.

My hair

So I have a few new readers which hopefully means more comments! Hahaha.. I'm too inscecure to blog when I don't get comments, so we'll try this again! Many of you still haven't seen my new straight hair. The before and after pictures are not an exaggeration. My before hair was air-dried and had NOT been brushed. And people used to wonder why I couldn't just "get out of the shower and go"? Anyways, the whole procedure took about 6 1/2 hours. This is normal, by the way! I asked them how many actual steps there were, and their answer? 20. Enjoy the pictures! (oh and if you're wondering? YES! I LOVE IT!)
