Seven things I can do:
*Heal minor wounds with a single kiss-I Love that I still have a couple of kids this works for!
*Sing the whole Sponge Bob Square Pants theme song- This is a popular demanded bedtime song for my three year old. The things you do for your kids!
*Get over things easily
*Talk- to anyone, anywhere, anytime about anything!
*Get out of a ticket- I tell Doug I am just nice, honest and not above begging for mercy. It must work, I have been pulled over about 20 times and ZERO tickets!
*Hunt- yes, having my blue card was part of the prenup and I'm a pretty good shot!
*Waste endless hours playing Guitar Hero!!!- In my next life I will be the lead guitar player in a really cool rock band!!! Watch out Pink!
Seven things I can't do:
*Get myself around in SLC- I have lived here my whole life and can still manage to get lost! Even my Tom Tom doesn't seem to help!
*Remember peoples names!
*Sing- but I keep try'n
*Play the piano-wish I would have listened to you mom and stuck with those lesson!
*Stop eating CHOCOLATE- I will never ever ever try to do that again it is not worth it!
*Swallow pills- retarded I know, but I would rather suffer with pain then take anything over the size of an Advil, that is even pushing it some days. My prenatal vitamins I would cut into thirds and it would take me all day to get those pieces down.
*Swim- I fear being in water where I can't touch the bottom or in water where I can't see what else is swimming with me!

I think we may have broke the record for the longest amount of time a child kept a bite of food in their mouth refusing to swallow.
I thought she was being such a big eater. I would put a big bite in her mouth and then attend to the other five (some were friends) children refilling plates, getting drinks, getting napkins, you know the routine. We were in a big hurry, not your typical sit down meal, everybody was rushing. When I realized that every time I would give her a bite she would get down off of her chair. So I decided to follow her. What I found was a bathroom garbage full of Stir-Fry. Apparently she didn't really like it that well. So I sat her on the counter and bribed her with a brownie to take just one bit of her dinner. All of the kids thought it was so funny that she had been secretly disposing of her dinner that she quickly realized she was the center of attention (her favorite place to be), so she made everyone well aware that she was not going to swallow even one bite. After a few minutes I had to leave I told her to swallow the bite and I would be back to give her a brownie. I dropped the kids off to skating and took a friend home, when I got back she still had not swallowed the food. Finally after about 22 minutes she gagged it down. I guess we won't try Chinese food again for a while.

These four loved playing all day with each other, they are all the best of friends!
Avery (Bubb and Paiges), Alayna (Kadee and Andrews), Skylar (mine), Maggie (Aaron and Kates)
We have all tried but we have only managed to bring two boys into the Allred family, surrounded by 9 girls they have plenty of targets to "torture".
Nana and Papa Jack gave all the grandkids fun winter hats and gloves! They all loved them
