Favorite Movie Moments

I figured that while I try to get Jackson back to sleep at the same time every night, I'd post a link to a favorite film moment every once in a while just for the heck of it. Since it has so many, I'll be posting a lot of funny stuff from "This Is Spinal Tap". This was the first "mockumentary" made by Rob Reiner in 1984 with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer. I'll always remember the first time I saw this movie. It was at a midnight screening in Provo, Utah while I was a sophomore at BYU. I can remember laughing so hard that the next day, my stomach muscles were sore. I hope you enjoy these.

Proposition 8

Went to Stake Priesthood meeting on Saturday night where we discussed the campaign that will intensify in the coming months regarding Proposition 8. I know it was a difficult subject to address for our Stake President as we have a number of elders within our stake who are gay. I was impressed with the position of love that he took while addressing this touchy subject. This is not in any way, a gay-bashing proposition. It simply wants to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Nothing more. This isn't meant to be a condemnation of anyone's lifestyle or to encourage discrimination of any kind. The coming months will be interesting as the debate over this subject will no doubt intensify. President Bragg emphasized on being sensitive and keeping all debate on the subject positive and refrain from passing judgement on those that disagree with the Church's stance. I hope that will be the case, but I'm not too confident that a few bad seeds on both sides of this issue will lob insults at each other and the media will turn this debate into a cartoonish clash between the "religious right" and the "hedonistic" liberals. Time will tell.

More Pictures of the kids

I wanted to add a few more photos of the kids from the last couple of months.
Mr. DeMille, Allie is ready for her close-up.

They must have been coming home from a Jerry Springer taping.
