Ooo-La La -- I am 100!!!

This is my 100th post! Hooray for me!
Little Cannon is one busy, wiggly little boy. I hear that a lot of babies are very active-- I just haven't had one yet-- until now. I was making up a baptism program and for just a minute I wasn't watching Cannon. I had that "mother feeling" that said "go check on Cannon!" and I found him at the top of the stairs with two pairs of scissors!!! YIKES. Obviously he was quite pleased with himself.
Pay no attention to the junk in the hall. We were cleaning out bedrooms.
Cannon had his one year check up today. I was sad to find out he had an ear infection, but kind of glad because at least there is a good reason he's been quite grouchy lately.

Last Thursday we spent an evening up Big Cottonwood Canyon for dinner with our good friends - the Johansens. It was great fun except for the moose that kept wandering fairly close to the campsite. Well, the kids thought the moose was great fun, but having a moose by my little people makes me nervous.

Weekend of FUN, FUN, FUN!!! Matt and Misty made a very quick trip down to Utah this weekend. So we all joined for a birthday lunch for Allison on Saturday. It's not too often we all get together now, so it was a REAL treat.

I am a fan of little girls being little girls, but on dance recital day we do LOVE playing beauty salon and getting gussied up for the big event. The girls' dance recital was Saturday night. Bethany was in three dances and Elinor was in two and it was so fun to watch. It was quite a family event with Matt and Misty, Brig and Dev, and Grandma and Grandpa Cannon being there.

Bethany did her ballet dance first. She was nervous for the evening but she danced beautifully. She has improved so much this year.

Elinor was in a class of only three girls, so it was almost like a solo for her. She did particularly well in her tap dance.
