Our Beloved Soldier

Since Dave is too modest to post this his proud wife will. A New York Times reporter spent some time with Dave and his crew a few weeks ago. Here is an article that shows some of the hard work and challenges Dave is facing everyday.

The 4th and 5th slides are also good pictures of Dave at work. If we're lucky Dave might expound/correct it for us. We love you, Dave!

Rogers and Hammersteins, Cinderella was in Nashville for one night last month. They had a phenomenal Broadway cast for this fundraising event. I was smitten with the performance so much that I came home and searched for the Julie Andrews version on DVD. It has since doubled in price while in my Amazon cart. Figures.

What I really want to share with all of you is this picture of pure darling!

While shuffling into the last minute venue (the Nashville Symphony's home was flooded) there were a number of people in costume. I will refer to them as the side walk cast. They were decked out in Disney's Cinderella attire. While deciding how to get a Cinderella photo op without looking juvenile I spotted this moment of precious. It was off the charts adorable.
Side-walk-cast, Prince Charming, sat in front of us during the performance. I wanted to reach out and pet his sash so many times. Thankfully I resisted that urge and avoided being escorted out in shame.

Not to be left out here is our bundle of adorable:

After sticking on the hat before church I quickly took pictures assuming this moment wouldn't last. I present to you the first baby that doesn't mind wearing a hat. Well, the first baby I know of. She left that hat on all day. 4.5 hours to be exact. I was shocked! And delighted. She was adorable in every aspect. She has started dancing in the pew during sacrament meeting. It's slightly distracting yet still adorable
