I've always wondered about the saying "the proof is in the pudding". I'm sure there is an explanation for it, much like there is a story about brass monkeys and being cold........but that's another post entirely. Anyway, in this case, the proof is not in the pudding it's in the video. I'm about to prove 2 things about my Sara Kate.

1. She couldn't be quiet if her life depended on it.......even when she's sleeping.

2. She can whistle and she doesn't even know it. This is going to be of special significance, since Mrs. Nancy reported that her prayer request tonight at church was to learn to whistle.

Don't believe me? Here's proof:

It is not the snoring that I find so significant, she comes from a long line of snore-ers. Apparently, yours truly could saw some logs when I was little, before I had my tonsils removed. (although I don't believe it, and they can't prove it) Bryce also used to snore obnoxiously before his tonsils were removed. And, Brad still snores enough to make me want to lovingly smother him with my pillow.....just kidding........kind of. But, it's the fact that she was whistling so well and so LOUD. We heard it from the other room. Bless her heart y'all....and the heart of those who live with her too.

Oh, and the background noise you hear is Bryce listening to Adventures in Odyssey as he goes to bed. He was in his room of course, but apparently we don't do anything quietly in this house. Yep, they're loud & they're proud!

I've heard of whistlin' while you work, but never while you sleep! Too sweet.
And, you know, I've actually tried googling 'proof is in the pudding' once a long time ago 'cause it bothers me not to know the root of that origin! But, believe it or not, I couldn't find out! And here I thought there wasn't ANYthing Google didn't know! (Let me know if you have any luck...!) :)

That is hilarious! Nora wanted to know who was making that sound! Thanks for the laugh. Sara Kate is truly talented.

Sara Kate continues to amaze me with her talent!!! You are so lucky to have such a cutey for a sweet daughter.

I have so enjoyed reading everybody's fives. I had no idea that you lived overseas for awhile.

That apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. I remember trying to be sure that I went to sleep before you, so that I didn't actually kill you in your sleep. She is too precious. Thank you for the help. Stay tuned for the next late breaking video on the whittonchronicles.
