We got talent

Tonight was the ward talent show. Imagine my surprise when I saw that Robbie signed up. My kids are not performers...but he did it on his own. I couldn't believe it. I also knew there was no chance he was getting up there to perform.

 On the way home from school today, he asked, "so what do I win if I win the talent show?". He couldn't understand that there would be no prize for first place. He really couldn't believe there was no first place.

 Then as the afternoon progressed he said he was just to "jealous" to be in the talent show. Not Jealous...NERVOUS, I corrected. "yeah, I'm shy.", he said.

 After we ate the pre-show dinner they announced that Robbie would be the first act. He said there was no way he was going to do it so Cortney ran up and told the announcer Rob changed his mind. 

As the night progressed he got braver and braver. Then at the end he said he would do it. We went up and told the announcer and he said Robbie would be the last act. He and I went and waited in the wings of the stage. I was nervous he would get up there and freeze. We practiced one time what he was going to do...then it was show time... His act is about 20 seconds...take some time and watch it. It's worth it. It is a video from far back...but you can still get an idea of just how talented he is.

 Yup he does the CHINESE Splits followed by putting his foot behind his head.

 Afterwards he said he got over his fears. He said something helped him when he went up there to not be scared, probably the Holy Ghost, he said. Ahhhhh. I was so proud. He kept asking people which performance was their favorite. Still set on winning. On the way home he said, "yeah all the girls loved it because I am so FLEXIBLE." hahaa.

That is awesome! Now that he has lost his stage fright, I can't wait to see what other tricks he's got up his sleeve. So cute! Your kitchen looks awesome! Good job!! Am I the only one who hates Cortney's beard? He's so cute but with that bald head and that beard he looks like the guy on that etch a sketch type game where you draw the beard on the guy and then you can shake it away. Do you know which one I mean? I'm ready for the beard to go. He's too cute to be covered up. Anyone with me?
