Daxton takes Hollywood First Movie Audition

Dax had an Audition on Tuesday night so 2 nights ago December 2nd 2014 for a small church Christmas movie role. Dax cousins are in acting and have a casting agency they go through and my sister in law emailed us the information. It was in Provo at LDS film company and his audition time was 5:30.We got there right at 5:30 and filled out paperwork and they took his picture. We waited John met me there. We watched other kids come and go some acting crazy while Dax was so well behaved. We finally got called back and they had him sit on a bench and smile laugh and act surprised which he doesn't even know what that means. He layed on the bench and pretend like he was sleeping and covered his eyes. He only had to for 10 seconds and he did it longer they were all impressed. After they thanked him for coming and we left.
 
 
After we left and went to Jordan's since we were in Provo. We had dinner yummy fajitas and hung out it  was yummy. He even gave me a Milky way candy bar so Yummy. Jordan loves Dax and loved playing and ticking him. Dax didn't get a callback I wasn't surprised he's young but sure is cute. Until next time.

St George Temple

The day before Thanksgiving we decided to walk the grounds of the St George temple. We loved it.The weather couldn't be more perfect. There was a beautiful Nativity Dax wanted to ride the Donkeys. We said there's baby Jesus and the Wiseman. We walked around and saw a Bride and groom that just got married. We also decided to walk around inside the Visitors center. Small but oh so cute. The old man working in there was so nice. He told us that the St George temple is the longest standing temple ever. I can't wait to go in and do a session it's definitely one of the prettiest and most unique looking temples I visited.

The beginnings of Potty training Tinkle Tinkle

Today was just like any other day except Dax wanted to try to per per on the potty well I've done it before where I put him on the potty and he just sits. Well today he did a little tinkle and he was so excited. Dax is not sorta kinda understanding the concept. He tried another time tonight but nothing. So well probably buy a potty this weekend and start the process. Wish me luck I have NO clue what i'm doing. I'm definitely looking on Pinterest for tips and tricks. I think he's a good age considering he will be 2 1\2 next month. Well see it could take till he's 3 or longer I'm just glad we're finally starting the process. Scary yet exciting...to be continued
