Often when I am out in public with my two boys I have many people ask if they are twins. I do dress them the same occasionally and the obvious haircut is the same.... they do look like brothers to me, but I wouldn't say they looked like twins at all. Now... I have sworn for a couple years now that if Payton were a boy, or Ashton were a girl.... those two could pass as twins.
For the last few weeks we have been keeping busy. Just doing various things... Austin teaching the kids how to break dance: IT WAS PAYTON'S 6TH BIRTHDAY! HER PARTY IS STILL COMING THIS SATURDAY! We started the day off at a primary activity, hung out with the boys for a bit while Austin studied, and then dropped them off to him, while Payton and I headed to Knoxville for a girls only outing. Sunday we celebrated Payton's birthday with dinner and birthday cake. Austin let the kids make their own pizzas for FHE last week! They loved it! Austin showed the kids old home videos of themselves when they were little: one of their favorite things to do. Austin thought it would be funny to put Ash in the shirt he came home in from the hospital. Ash didn't see the humor in it! Payton started school today! She is in first grade! We can hardly believe how fast the summer went. But... it will be nice to get back to a schedule! She loved it and has all of her old classmates from last year with her. She didn't even want me to take her inside the school this morning. She wanted me to leave her at the door.

Our friend here from Tennessee Nathan Hinckley (one of our Holler friends) entered a video that he made into a national contest hosted by the conservative talk show host Sean Hannity. This contest was being held to honor the Men and Women who serve our Country. This song is an original written by Nathan's brother Derek who is singing the song in the video. We are asking everyone to go to this site for the next 3 days, and vote once a day. Send this link to all of your friends and family and help support. They are a very talented family who deserve to win because of just that. Click HERE and vote for "My Hero" by Nathan Hinckley Thanks so much!!!
