"He's my Mother"

Seriously people, I have tried for days and DAYS to get this video on here. For some reason it just didn't want to download. But, here it is. This is part of the song my sweet little kiddies sang (with the primary) in Sacrament Meeting on Mothers Day. They LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. Especially Noah . . .

P.S. Sorry it's so dark, he decided to perform for the camera late at night.

The Apple . . .

Nathan will hate me for posting this picture, but I just couldn't resist. My Mother-in-Law has always, ALWAYS told me, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" when it comes to Nathan and his Dad. Well Karen, I don't think it fell very far for Nathan and Elijah either.
Heaven help us . . .Seriously though, Nathan and Elijah have a special relationship. Elijah is definitely a Daddy's boy. He adores Nathan. He loves working on bikes with his dad, watching and playing basketball with is Dad, making faces with is Dad, the list goes on. He adores him. I love watching them together.
