code adam!

So, with the title, I'm sure many of you are thinking of Gavin, my little runaway, but this actually happened to Shelbi today while she was out with her dad! He went to Walmart for me and she stepped around the corner while they were at the check out line. He went around the other side and she wasn't there. So, after quickly searching the immediate area, he decided to expand the search and check a few aisles. While he was doing this, the store called a Code Adam for a lost little girl in a pink shirt, blue jeans, and pink shoes. He found a sales associate and told them the little girl was his and where was she? In the fitting rooms! Dallin said she wasn't crying, but she looked really scared! We're just glad she was found and is okay!

So, some of the fun things we've done lately are visiting the Dallas temple. It reminds me a lot of the Portland temple only a lot smaller. We also visited the Branch Davidian compound in Waco (yes it was little frightening). We saw only 3 people. Took some pictures and had our car chased by 3 dogs! We also went to the zoo where my sunglasses were stolen (I KNOW!!!). My favorite pair that has taken me nearly all my life to find....gone! Still haven't found any to replace them! Gone to the park a lot and have lived through 2 tornado warnings and am currently enduring a flash flood warning! Anyone want to come and visit? Just kidding (you really can, we have plently of room and friendly faces!).

Alright, Shem, this is for you! And you didn't think I could do it!!! We are all well (aside from the lone grape falling out of the grocery bag onto my kitchen floor and causing me to scream!). Shelbi is nearly potty trained and has perfected the tantrum! She really does lay on the floor, cries, AND kicks her legs, all without encouragement from me! (It really isn't very funny). And Gavin is reading now. So Proud! He's just starting, so sometimes when he's sounding a word out, he sounds like he's a little slow with his speech!
