Bribe or positive motivation????

What do this book......

and Carrie Underwood have to do with each other?????? I've mentioned before, we are big American Idol fans. We have enjoyed watching Carrie's success since she won AI a few years ago.
In May our DD learned that CU was coming to town in November and began begging to go to the concert. My DH was tired of the nagging and so he told her that if she would read the Book of Mormon (on her own) before Nov 7th then he would get her tickets. She began reading every night and had finished by the end of September!!
SOOOO...last night was the concert. It was a fun date with our DD and her friend. CU did not disapoint and was a great performer. She has an amazaing voice! Here are a few pics and a video our DD took of part of the concert.

Oh, how fun!! I have never really been into AI. I've been aware of who was on, but never really followed it (or voted) until this year. Anyway, I now have an "unhealthy obsession" (according to Casey) with David Archuleta. Seriously, can you blame me--I just think he's great, especially for how young he is. I'm so excited for his CD to come out (on Tues)!

Oh, and about the vampire thing, I've heard that you were obsessed with them. How many times have you read the Twilight books? Like 4, or something ridiculous like that! I made it 2/3 of the way through Breaking Dawn, and lost interest!! It's the CRAZIEST thing, cause I LOVED the first 3 books. (Please don't disown me for this!)

How fun. The kids are growing up so fast. Sounds like you guys are having a great time in AZ.

We are jealous - Carrie Underwood would be great to see. Sounds like you had fun.
