Ten on Tuesday - March 27

1.  Well, it's finally happened, and we're frankly surprised it took this long.  Lincoln can open his bedroom door now.  He came in to our room this morning rather than waiting for us to go get him.  Luckily, it was during our morning game of alarm-clock wars.  But we ARE thinking we might need to get one of these, just to head off any potential 4 am wake-ups.

2.  I've decided to start a Project Life binder this year.  I've mentioned on my craft blog that I started doing a line-a-day five-year journal this year, and since I've been really good about doing Ten on Tuesday posts on both blogs, I think I can catch up.  Plus I'm aiming for more of a journal type project than a family scrapbook.

3.  And because I'm starting that, I've been trying to take pictures more.  Especially of random everyday things.  The other day in the car I got out my phone (don't worry, Tyler was driving), and when I mentioned that I wanted a picture of something, Lincoln asked me if I was going to take a picture of him.  So I did.  


4.  On Friday night, Tyler and I went to see The Hunger Games.  And I loved it.  I've been a fan of the books for a few years now, so I was very excited when I heard they were making a movie, but also a little concerned about how the story would translate to the big screen.  And I have to say that they did a phenomenal job.  One of the best adaptations I've seen. 

5.  Uncle Jake and Aunt Courtney (Tyler's brother and his wife) took our sweet nephew Bentley and moved back to Utah this week.  Obviously we'll miss Jake and Courtney, but there's texting and skype to keep in touch with them (she says dismissively).  There's no technology to replace holding and smelling a sweet baby.

6.  Speaking of Skype, on Saturday Lincoln was playing with my iPad and announced that he wanted to talk with Nana and Stormy (my parents).  So I checked with my mom, and we set it up.  I love technology.

6.  We're excited about General Conference this weekend!  We'll be watching at home, either on the local channel, if knology deigns to air it, or on our Roku if necessary.

7.  Speaking of our Roku, the BYU channel was one of the main selling features.  We're planning to get one for the other tv as well.

We started watching Dr. Who this weekend to find out what all the fuss is about.  After the first episode, I was completely mystified as to why it’s so popular!  But we stuck it out and watched the second episode, and it looks like it’s getting better.

9.  We're in the market for a double jogging stroller.  I've got my eye on this one

10.  If you have the chance to play Five Crowns, I highly recommend it.  It's a fun family game.  Jake and Courtney took that with them to Utah, too, though, so on Saturday I picked up Quiddler, which is made by the same people.  It's like a scrabble card game.  Fun, but a bit more challenging.

I love Dr. Who! :o) Let me know what you think once you get through Christopher Eccelston. :)

And that looks like a nice joggling stroller too. :)

I've watched quite a few episodes of Dr. Who. I still don't get it. I think we've watched the first five or so. Yeah. Good luck with it.
