Temple Baptisms

Our family went to the bountiful temple during spring break to do baptisms for the dead. We met at 9:30 am and organized ourselves and had a wonderful time. Afterwards, I asked if this temple had a cafeteria. I was told that it did so I convinced everyone to stay for lunch and eat in the temple. We had a great time and then afterwards, we went out front and took some pictures. My sister took some really good pictures whereas the pictures I took arnt so great, however, I have my pictures now from my phone. So here we are.

TF Tennis

Coby and Andy are playing #1 Men's Doubles this year on the Twin Falls Tennis Team.  Their first few matches were against some really tough teams and some of those matches went to a tie breaker to decide the match.  Yesterday, they played Canyon Ridge High School, which is the new high school here in Twin Falls, and did very well against their #1 Men's Doubles team.

Below is the report in the newspaper on how well they did.

Our Life

I don't know how they are doing it.  They must have some hidden camera's in our house, in our cars and everywhere we go.  Somehow ABC Television has filmed our life and then made a sit-com out of it.  I swear it is true.

Example number one comes directly from this weeks episode of "The Middle".  This episode is called "The Paper Route".  I know it sounds funny but some of the conversations they have in this TV show match up almost exactly with conversations we have had in our house.  I think they filmed our situation, then got some writers together, and created this episode.

Example number two comes from an episode of "Last Man Standing".  The episode is called "Take your Daughter to Work".  Although the name doesn't really tell you about how it relates to our life, it is unbelievable how much like our life this episode depicts.  This is almost exactly what happened to our family when I almost hit a dog early in the morning while doing the paper route.  If you don't know about this "dog" incident, then you need to read my earlier blog post.

The third example is from another on of the episodes of "The Middle".  This one comes straight out of our life.  The episode is called "The Sit Down".  When I watch this one, it is almost too hard to watch because it happens in our life all of the time.  I don't want to watch my life again.  But, somehow, it is entertaining enough for me to stay hooked on this show.

So, if you want some samples from the Carter Family Life, just watch these three episodes and you will have a pretty good idea what is going on in our home.

Over the last several weeks Savanna has been going to play practice over at CSI where the CSI theater department was putting together a production of "Oliver".  Almost every evening she would go over there and practice her songs and parts with a bunch of other little kids, all cast to be orphans in the play.  As they waited for their scenes, they would play in the dressing room.  As the weeks went by, they started to develop other words to some of the songs that they sang in "Oliver".  As the song developed, they decided to sing this montage in the foyer of the auditorium after their last performance.

Below is that song while they stood on the steps of the auditorium.
