Talent(?) Show

When I heard our ward was having a talent show, I knew I had to be a part of it. Naturally, I am very talented (hear the sarcasm.) I signed the sign up sheet and when asked what my talent was, I replied, "I'll come up with something." For a couple of weeks I thought about what I could do - balance a peacock feather, mime a poem, intrepretive dance, etc. I kept trying to get Chris to agree to dance ballet in a tutu with me, but he wasn't so hot on that idea! Finally, I told him we were going to dance in a unique way and showed him how. He agreed! What a great husband!!! I got all the supplies together at the last minutes. We made up and rehearsed our dance steps 30 minutes before the talent show started. Cadence said she wanted to dance with us so I gathered an outfit for her. It went very well. I wish I knew how to download from our video camera to here so you could see. Cadence danced right along with us and "shook her bootie." She was SO CUTE!!! We wore shorts around our knees and shirts around our waist. Then covered our heads with paper hats. (It is hard to explain and we didn't get great pictures of us.)
Unfortunately, we were chosen/voted to go on to the stake talent show. Seriously, we have no talent! We are just silly and weird! I told the Bishop he should choose someone with real talent, but he said they wanted us. So in a couple weeks, we will dance again. Maybe we will make up a dance for the whole song, instead of just half of it. I will try to get someone to record it so I can download it on to this blog.
Actually, our real talent is/was eating. The Johnnie's know how to scarf down food in large quantities. Doesn't Cadence look like a princess shoving this brownie (refreshment) in her mouth? Absolutely!
I'm so glad that I love to make a fool out of myself. Honestly, I don't understand why more people are so afraid to be silly. Let loose and feel free!

Wow, that looks so funny, I wish we could have been there. I'm glad to hear that someone else in these parts says "bootie" or "booty" or whatever. I get weird looks when I say it!
