Talent Show

Tonight for Family Home Evening we did a family talent show. It was so funny. First up was Toddler (2 1/2 years old), he very quietly sang the ABC's, but he got distracted about half way through and started looking at the Halloween box in the living room. Next up was 8 year old son. He did some flips on the trampoline. Then was Princess (4 1/2 years old). She sang "Bop to the Top" from High School Musical and she danced. Her dancing is mostly spinning around. Then it was Hubby's turn. He typed. His typing speed is 86 wpm. He is very fast and pretty good since he hasn't practiced that much in a while. Next was the 10 year old son. His talent was to eat an entire pizza (a small one) as fast as he could. He did it in 3 minutes. It was kind of gross. He had never done that before, but he was confident in his ability to eat one quickly. He found out that eating as fast a you can is trickier than it seems. We decided one day, we'll have a family pizza eating competition to see who can eat their pizza the fastest. Last was me. I had to prepare mine in advance because my talent is making tasty treats and I made some super yummy Oreo bonbons. Mmmmm.

We talked about how our different talents can help us in life and how God blessed each of us with talents. We aren't sure how eating a pizza in less than three minutes helps us in life, but hey, it's fun to try!

Very Neat!! During times like that are you glad you have a lot of kids? I've been pondering the pros and cons of more then two kids lately...

I'm always glad for my 5 children. I wouldn't change it for the world, but is it tough sometimes. I have no time to work on personal projects. When I do work on personal goals, I've always got a baby in my lap and several other children hanging out by my side asking for things. The house is never clean and the pile of laundry is always big, but, the time I have with them this small is so short. As unfulfilled as I feel in personal goals, I realize that there will be time for those down the road. Me and my desires will just have to wait 5 more years.
