Party pictures part 2- hair

1 What do you have to say for yourself?
We (Lucy, Lyndi, Leah, Paige, and I)decided that my hair would look better with gel, hairspray, a hairdryer, and even a fan put to it.





This is Lyndi, hairspraying my hair





Here I am showing off my hair
We were still working on it
This is the back
I might be leaning back a little bit, but not much in this picture, that is all hair spray, gel
Sorry this picture is sideways, this is me, with the hairdryer

this is lyndi trying tomake her hair as cool as mine, even though it just stayed like it was( mainly because her dad came then)
We crimped Leahs hair, it was very pretty, just like her moms!

Potato Candy

3 What do you have to say for yourself?
I made the best candy the other day. Some people do not like this because it is REALLY sweet! Some people say that it is pure sugar, it is not, but almost. It consists of..

  • 1/4 cup potato
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box (1 lb) powdered sugar
  • peanut butter

Mash potato, add vanilla, and powdered sugar. This should form a sort-of doughy substance. divide dough into 4 pieces. roll between two pieces wax paper till 1/8 inch thick. spread thin layer of peanut butter. roll up. refrigerate over night, cut up and serve.

This is a good Sunday treat for if you want something REALLY sweet!

Milk

0 What do you have to say for yourself?
How many gallons of milk did you buy last time you went to the store?

Guess how many we got.

37.

no, not 3.7, 37 gallons of milk.

That was on April 14.

Today is on April 24.

Daily milk count shows that we have a total of

16 gallons left! that averages about 2 gallons a day.

I don't care what you say, that is a lot of milk!

Why, you might ask, did you buy all this milk?

Well, a nice lady named Sister Vasquez called us to tell us that milk was on sale for

$1.00 a gallon!!! yeah!!!!!! no 2 cups a day limit for like an entire month!!

To get the full story, go to my moms blog.

Rachel's Party, part 1, the skittles game

4 What do you have to say for yourself?
Elder Carter told a story about us on his blog, so here is a post dedicated to him. Have any of you guys ever heard of the skittles game? I hadn't either until a couple of years ago when elder Ben Carter came over and taught us how to play. When Elder Carter played this game, he actually threw it up on the carpet, and then ate it again!! The object of the game is to get as grossed out as you possibly can, and then throw up because you ate so much. How you play is.. You take a big bag of skittles. the first person draws 2 skittles from the bag. If they are the same color, you may chew. If they are not the same color you just have to sit there with them in your mouth and not chew. More often than not, you draw out to different colors. If you draw out 2 of the same colors, chew fast, because you have to stop chewing when the next person draws out 2 of the same colors, or if it gets back to you. This is Lucy after not chewing for a while.
Page, trying to keep them all in.
Lindy, she couldn't stop laughing.

Beautiful me!
Yeah!! I drew out two the same color!
Poor Leah (both the picture above me and below) she only got to chew like 2 times the entire game! Needless to say,this is NOT her favorite game

It was kinda hard to keep it in, as you see from Lyndi's face.

I don' t know what happened here, but it looks like a skittle that didn't want to get eaten. Part 2 to come. What happens when this group of girls gets into a bottle of hairspray and gel?

Day lilies anyone?

4 What do you have to say for yourself?
Edit* I forgot to tell you that the cost for the day lilies is $1.00 and $2.00 for me to come and plant them( if you live close by, if not, you have to also pay for my plane ticket and my food :) )

This year for *girls camp we have been advised to earn some of the money ourselves and not to rely entirely on our parents, or whoever pays for it.

So to help us out we have the wonderful (drum roll please) TIM HITCHOCK!!! Brother Hitchock has said that he will donate day lilies if we would sell them and take all of the money and use it to pay for girls camp.

If anybody would like to buy some( if you live close enough so that i can give them to you, or you can pay for them to be mailed, if they can be mailed) just give me a call! (if you want my #, leave a comment) Again all this is made possible by the wonderful TIM HITCHOCK!! Thanks so mush Brother Hitchock!!

*Girls camp is a church camp that we go to every year between the ages of 12 and 18, it is the best camp in the world!!!

Family Home Evening (FHE)

2 What do you have to say for yourself?
We had a funny fhe last Monday. It went something like this..

Dad welcomed us, we had opening prayer and song. Dad then turned it over to Lucy who had the activity (we did the activity first because we had to do it outside and wanted to do it before dark.)
Guess what the activity was.



A spitting contest!!!

Lucy got a pitcher of water and dyed it green and we had a spitting contest. Dad won.

Then we came back inside for the lesson- by Molly.
Molly is only 7 so her lesson was just to show us a picture and then to ask us questions. The topic was baptism. We had a conversation that was a little bit different, this is how it went...

Molly: Who knows where Jesus was baptised?

Everybody: waving hands around widely to show how excited we are that she taught us so well.

Molly: Dad.

Everybody: Man I can't believe that she didn't choose me! (sarcastically)

Molly: (at the same time we were talking) Reading ahead in her lesson, not paying any attention to what is going on.

Everybody: gets quiet, waiting for Molly, and Dad to answer.

Molly: Realizes that everybody has gotten quiet and looks up.

Dad: (without ever answering) Did I get it right?

Molly: (not hearing what dad answered, but sure, since he is dad, was right) Say's Yes, good job!!

(We all laughed)

Molly: asks next question

Everybody: waves hand around widely

Molly: William

William: answer's question.

Molly: asks next question

Everybody: waving hands wildly( except for William, since he just answered he figured that he wouldn't get called on again so he just has his hand up.)

Molly: William

William: answers question.

Molly: asks next question

Everybody: waving hands wildly (except for William who is sure that since he just answered the last 2 questions that it is somebody else's turn, he doesn't even raise his hand)

Molly: William

William: answers question( looking around to see if anybody else realizes this weird thing that is happening- we all do)

Molly: That's my lesson- Thanks for participating!

Yeah, she just picked dad for the first one and William for all the rest- oh well, she is 7.

We then take the pie that mom has made and take it over to the bishops house. At the bishops house dad finds a craw dad and shows it to us. Mom is horrified. Then after dad puts the crawdad back, molly comes up and gently rubs against mom, mom screams thinking that it is the crawdad. Then me, who is standing right next to her screams, then Lucy who is standing right next to me, then the bishops wife and daughter scream because they are standing right next to Lucy. We all laugh then because we realize that we all screamed just because molly rubbed up against mom- well mom didn't laugh because she doesn't think that it is funny when we pretend that some animal is touching her. When we are heading out to the car Lucy rubs up against mom, and she screams again.

It was a fun Family Home Evening!

What kind of shoe are you?

4 What do you have to say for yourself?








You Are Cowboy Boots




This doesn't mean you're country, just funky.

You've got a ton of attitude and confidence.



You're unique, expressive, and even a little bit wacky.

You wear whatever you feel like รข€“ and you have your own sense of style.



You are straight shooting and honest. You tell people how it is.

Low maintenance and free wheeling, you're always up for an adventure.



You should live: Where you can at least get to wide open spaces



You should work: In a job that allows you to take change

This is weird

0 What do you have to say for yourself?
Scroll down for Fun Monday

I got this email from my friend Lindsey, I also heard that Michelle sent it to some people It is really weird and it works, at least for me. You don't have to download anything or something like that, but you might need a calculator. Try it!!

YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT
Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but your waiter may know!

YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATH This is pretty neat DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read .
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to go out to eat. (more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1758... If you haven't, add 1757.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number
The first digit of this was your original number. ( I. e., How many times you want to go out to restaurants in a week.)
The next two numbers are YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!) THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS
