Many of you know that I am a big American Idol fan. I watch every week, and yes, I also vote! So does the rest of my family! So last Friday, David Archuleta came home to Utah to do a "Hometown Visit." So Maggie and I took our kids and Grace and Chlo'e to Gateway Mall where he was coming to sign autographs. We got there and realized that we'd never get through the line of people to get an autograph or meet him. So Mags decided that we wait by his limo so we could be there when he got out. Very good decision on her part! We were right there when he got out and we all got to see him. I know that Mags and I are a little old and way too married to be so excited about this. It's not like we have crushes on a 17 year old, it was just fun to be in the crowd who was all so excited! Seriously tons of screaming fans! Anyway, he walked right by us. My sister Gracie was holding Lezlee and he shook Gracie's hand and then touched Lezlee's shoulder and said, "Hi sweetie!" Wow! Lezlee, at 3 years old, hasn't stopped talking about it since! Here are a few pictures of him and the surrounding FUN and CHAOS!
