Before Brandon left for Korea we learned about a new pop star named "Rain" who is HUGE in Korea. As I was watching my nightly Colbert Report I learned that Stephen was competing with this kid named Rain for the #1 most influential person for Time Magazine. So of course Stephen called him out and challenged him to a dance off! Well what happened was hilarious to say the least. Check out the Rain Rivalry. If you have a few minutes watch Singing in Korean and Dance Off. I have to say I was impressed with Rain and of course Stephen. Who knew he could move like that? Rain is a little hottie and the boy can dance! Brandon brought me back a Rain CD from Korea and he said that Rain was EVERYWHERE! On TV, in print, and billboards all over the country. I am enjoying my new CD. He has a very soulful voice and is entertaining in a way that you don't even mind if it's in Korean and you don't understand a thing he's saying. Most of his songs do have some English in them. Here's his video. A little cheesy sure, but I enjoyed it.

Brandon returned home today from a 2 week trip to Korea! His Korean grandmother took him and his cousin Jessica. I was sooo excited for him to have this opportunity and it seems like he had a really wonderful time. He even talks about going back maybe for a few months and possibly teaching English with his cousin maybe after he's out of high school. I think this trip is just what Brandon needed. I'm so proud of him, he took some really great pictures. He also was very thoughtful and brought us all something special from his trip and I know he put alot of thought into it. I'll share some pictures of the goodies in another post.

We are getting ready for a trip to Disneyland in a few days! I can't believe it's been 2 years since we have been to the "Happiest Place on Earth!". We waited way too long. I was looking back of some of our pictures from our last trip and I thought I would share. ENJOY!
