O almost always is smiling and I love his laugh so much. I love it because I'll be playing with Iz trying to get him to smile and O will be watching, giggling and smiling and getting all worked up at the same time. I think it is so funny. My parents were getting such a kick out of him because he'd just be sitting there eating and all I'd have to do is talk to him or smile and he'd start shaking his hands and laughing because he was so excited. He also is my little tantrum baby and will fuss over silly things. He loves to take toys away from Iz and especially his pacifier, even though he just wants to play with it. He really does throw a good tantrum with arms and legs flailing already. It's probably not good that we find it so funny. O is wiggly during a diaper change too but he is actually worse when he is nursing. He always has to wiggle all over my lap which gets very interesting. Well, that's the twins right now. I will post soon with an update on E and A too. Here is a picture of their latest mischief, I just went to the bathroom and this is what I came back to. Oh the joy! At least Iz looks properly chastened . O just looks like "hey, I'm having a blast!" (Here's a not so angelic picture, Cheryl)

Anyway, the next morning at the Priesthood session DE sang "Praise to the Man" with some other men which was in an old pre-renaissance church mode and sounded so cool. (Or at least from what I hear). Anyway, at the general session on Sunday Bishop Burton stood up and said that he was so impressed with that number at the morning session that he wanted them to sing it again. Unfortunately, the music had been left at one of the members houses when he went to pick up his family. But we thought it was great that they got asked! I have been so pleased with how much DE has improved with his singing ability since we moved here. He really is the man of music! He can pretty much play anything musical except for the instruments with strings. (And he can make a nice sound out of those too, just not for long :) We love music!

You SHOULD be jealous!!
What is his name? Eldon Zane Carbine
How long have you been married? 9 years in July
How long did you date? We met in the fall of '98, started dating in October and were sealed for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles temple July 31, 1999.
How old is he? 31
Who eats more? Depends on the day and what we're eating.
Who said I love you first? Is it so sad that I don't even remember? I think it was him but I'm pretty sure we told each other around the same time. I was just in denial for a while.
Who is taller? That would most definitely be DE!
Who sings better? Probably still me although he is getting better and better.
Who has a worse temper? Ha ha.. that's funny. If anyone knows DE they know it's definitely me. DE is Mr. Mellow.
Who does the laundry? That would be me. (I'm home all day...duh)
Who does the dishes? Me again. (see above)
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? We switch almost constantly but when we go to bed I'm usually on the right.
Who mows the lawn? Definitely DE. He knows where I grew up, the only thing I know how to do is pull weeds...and more weeds....and more weeds.....
Who drives when you are together? DE, unless he's getting sleepy.
Who cooks dinner? I am the cook (because I have to) DE is our chef (because he likes to and is good at it). DE's been cooking a lot ever since I got pregnant with the twins.
Who pays the bills? Unfortunately me.
Who is more stubborn? Probably me, but there have definitely been times when he's surprised me, he just has to feel strongly about something and then you can't budge him.
Who has more friends? Definitely me, poor guy.
Who has more siblings? He does. He has 4 and I have 3.
Who wears the pants in the family? I'm a modern girl so I usually wear pants unless it's Sunday, and DE always wears pants unless he's wearing shorts. (Okay, only joking. I would say that I make more of the small decisions because DE is pretty indecisive but when it comes to big decisions and taking care of this family it is definitely DE. He's the patriarch of this family, thank goodness.)
And one of my own questions, Who changes the diapers? Both of us! I love that about DE, if he smells it, he changes it.
I can honestly say that not a day goes by that I am not glad and grateful that I managed to snag a man like him. He's got his little quirks just like everyone but when it comes to the important things he is AMAZING! He is supportive of me, he has never said even ONE negative thing to me about me. He uplifts me every day, kisses me goodbye whenever he leaves, tells me he loves me many times a day and still loves to be with me! He is an awesome father, so cute and gentle with our boys. The main reason I want to have a girl is because I'd love to see him with a girl. He is sweet and gentle and also strong and protective. I know I'm the luckiest girl alive.
