Do we have another American Idol fan in the family?!?

Matt's reactions to American Idol has always ranged between: "I don't understand why you watch that" to "I don't understand how you can stand watching that." Well, Matt watched the last bit of Tuesday's American Idol (top 10 boys) in fact he has watched bits and pieces of American Idol for the last couple weeks mostly because there are some members of our church on the show. So this past Tuesday the very last singer was 16 yr old Mormon David Archuleta who did an amazing job. At the end of the song I looked over at Matt, who was trying to turn away from me, only to see that he was CRYING!! Now some reading this are not shocked because they know the true sensitive side of my husband who used to also cry during (drum roll please) THE BACHELOR!!!! But he would probably want me to state that he has given up that show, though he was an avid fan for at least 3 or 4 seasons. So I now wonder do we have a third member of our family who is an American Idol fan? To be continued...

OK, now it's my turn to be laughing hysterically. Because I can see Matt with tear running down his cheek VIVIDLY and it doesn't surprise me one bit!!

And just last night (as we were watching some AI), I was telling Garrett that I was pretty sure there was probably at least one Mormon on there, but I had no idea who it was. Just a pretty good chance of getting at least one and I haven't followed it enough to know. So now my suspicions have been confirmed. I'll be all the more interested in watching now. Hopefully he's better than Jon Peter Lewis...JPL! LOL!

Okay, Okay, I just have to tell you 2 things. First, David from American Idol is in our Stake. He put on our ward christmas program and it was sooo good. We have met him a few times--He is a cutie! GO DAVID!! Second, I totally bought the Jack Johnson: Curious George CD for Jack's 1st birthday after I read your recommendation. Jack LOVES music!!!! So, I hope he likes it as much as Carter.

PS: The girl from Mesa was LDS, too.

This post made me laugh so hard. At least Matt has some sensitivity to cover up his lack of imagination.
Lacy and I were talking about how David reminded us of Matt, in the sense that they both have similar faces (not that you really look alike) but there is this "singing face." Matt used to turn it on for the ladies until he started turning it on for the lady (that's you). It never failed:
"Look how spiritual I am as I sing this hymn with my adorable face!" And the girls sigh and Justin and I go, "Geez, there he goes again." Good times.
So this makes me wonder if Matt isn't crying because he doesn't just like David, but in some ways IS David.
Curious. I expect him to call me and tell me what he thinks of this comment.
