Chris entered the friend Brian Clark. If you've ever seen Chris perform you've probably seen Brian by his side. They were in together (Brian is the one Chris crashed into and broke his leg 1 week before our wedding), they were 2 of the 4 guys in " ", they did their Senior Project at BYU together, and Brian was the Javert to Chris' Valjean in one of Chris' favorite shows to ever do (Brian actually went on to play Javert in the Broadway touring company of Les Miserables). I could go on and on... the two are awesome together and we love Brian!! If they make it to the top 3 they get to perform at Stadium of Fire in front of 65,000+ people with David Archuletta and ... FUN!! The next phase of the contest is determined by popular vote and the competition is super stiff. We thought this would be amateurs with home videos but most of them are actually professional music videos and promos! That means they are real groups with fans and everything!! We feel like the underdogs and need to rally some extra support. Could you please take a second to go here and vote for video #37? It really only takes about 30 seconds... I promise. You can vote for three DIFFERENT videos per computer, or just vote for Chris =). If you have more than 1 browser you can vote from those as well. This isn't one of those vote every day contests, thank goodness, so we don't need to worry about people with crazy friends and family just sitting there voting all day every day. Voting ends FRIDAY!! You don't have to live in Utah to vote so send away!! We are so grateful for the support of our friends and family over the years and appreciate you taking the time to help Chris get into the top 25!! THANKS FOR VOTING!!!!Talent Contest on a whim at the encouragement of some friends and made it into the top 40 out of 500 submissions. He's singing with his

Katie and Emma are cousins that are 14 years apart but it was fun that they could be in the same dance recital. Emma has been taking for one year and Katie has been taking at Showcase for 16 years. This is her last year. There were 7 seniors that have pretty much danced together for at least 10 years. Katie has been there the longest. They did a video presentation of these girls. It was really fun to see how much they have grown up with dance. It has become Katie's whole life. I really appreciate the teachers and the life lessons that Katie, Brooke and now Emma will be able to learn. Thanks Jeana, Cassie and Tewa for all your love and support of my girls!
In the 5th grade each student chooses a dead American Hero and dresses up like them in a living wax museum. Alec went as John Hancock one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He had to write a report on him and then dress up like him. I love his costume! He is the only one with a paper wig! It rocks! Alec's friend Hayden Hargraves went as George Washington.
Katie Graduated with a 4 year certificate from Seminary! The Stake President asked her to speak at Seminary Graduation. Katie was really scared but did an amazing job. She explained the mission of Seminary and why it's important as a member of the church. I think it's awesome because at one time Katie wanted to quit seminary and said that it wasn't important. I know that she's glad she stayed and had a really great experience!
