My cousin Jeremiah and his wife, Jess have the funniest little boy, Boston. This kid is crazy! Just like his parents. This kid is determined to do things on his own.
This video is awesome to our family. I find it so inspiring. So many life lessons taught in this funny ten minute video. And trust me, it's worth spending the ten minutes to watch. The were going at this whole process for about forty minutes. What patient and amazing parents. I don't know if I'll allow that for my kids when something like this happens. "no, I'll put your bike in the car, now get in."
But the thing I love is when Boston says, "I can do it" what does Miah say? "I know you can."

And although Boston is doing it, all by himself, Miah and Jess are there the whole time, next to him, guiding him, giving him advice, and ready to help if he asks for it.

How often do we tell Heavenly Father "I CAN DO IT!" and he says, "Yes I know you can." But of course he's there the whole time, waiting, watching, ready to swoop in when we say, "Please, help me." But knowing that we can do it. Enjoy the video. I can't watch it enough.

It's shorter in Egyptian

This is for Russell, because when we watched this movie we rewound it and watched it over and over. This is the funniest part of the whole movie. Hank Azaria. What a funny man.

Midsummer's Night's Dreams costume update

As I have said before I am designing the show of a Midsummer's Night's Dream for Box Elder High School. I'm way excited for all of this. I just wanted to update what I've done so far.

This is Helena's dress, to be worn by Becca Norman. I love the pinks and golds. I love the sleeves. They're my favorite part of the whole dress.

This is Helena's Dress. To be worn by Caroline Liston. This fabric was amazing. I was a little disappointed that the girl cast in this part was so much smaller than myself, because That means I'll never be able to wear this costume. :( Oh well. It's still going to look absolutely amazing. Right? RIGHT!

This is the sleeve cuff of McKenzie Larson's...jacket type dress. I did this bead and cord work on it. The dress isn't quite finished, but I'll take a pic when the whole thing is. It's incredibly AWESOME. 
This took me a long time, but it was worth it! I love the way it turned out.
