Zachary participated in his first ever Cub Scout Pine Wood Derby Race tonight! He loved the whole experience! He ended up coming in 7th! He also received a certificate for the "Fastest Looking Car!" Here's the car line-up! There were actually 13 cars, but here are some of the contenders!
Zachary did a really nice job painting his car! I helped him just a little bit with the flames on the top, but he did the flames on the sides and the rest of the painting!
Karen turned 32 today!! Happy Birthday to you!! Karen and I took these pictures last week, just for fun and here are my 2 favorite! The top one is the one Karen liked the most because we look sneaky :) She is really one of my best friends! When we were younger my mom would always say that she wished we would be best friends...and we would just think she was crazy. Since we are just one year apart we had a way of really annoying each other, so it wasn't always a peaceful relationship. Now, we are best friends, and I know that our mother is very happy about that development! :) I love you Karen!!
This is what you do: 1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages). 2. Turn to page 123. 3. Find the 5th sentence 4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog. 5. Tag 5 people.
The first book I picked up was "You Can Never Get Enough of What You Don't Need...The Quest for Contentment" by Mary Ellen Edmunds ....Very wonderful book, author and speaker...love her!
The 5th sentence on the 123 page is, "If we are striving for peace, joy, and contentment, but are spending time with violence, immorality, materialism, and all else that is so prevalent in the various forms of media, what effect might that have on our families?"
Pretty good sentence, huh? The whole book is wonderful! :)
I'm going to tag: Judie, Siri, Karen, Honor, Cori and Veronique (okay, I know that is 6, but I had to include all the females in my family who have blogs!) Have fun!
My mom, Judie has created a special website for the White and Frampton's Family History! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful lady in my life! Check out her hard work and dedication to our Family History. Thank you mom!
Megan entered a Poetry Contest hosted by Buckley Pierce County Library and she WON! She wrote a very creative poem and she has been asked to read it at the Poetry Jam event! We are so excited for her and Megan is thrilled!
I am very hungry; I don’t know what to do. Oh wait, I have an idea, I’ll make Witch Stew! I’ll put in some green toenails, and some ugly dead plants, Also some warts, and boils, and a group of fire ants. Some mold, and dirt, and chewed up gum, and a pair of dirty socks, Lots of smelly garbage, and dead rats stored in a box. I’ll also put in eyeballs, and lots of raw fish, Some disgusting, dirty water in a disgusting, dirty dish. I need one more ingredient, oh what shall I do?
My Grandma celebrated her 87th birthday yesterday, and we had a large family gathering! She was thrilled (yes, I know she doesn't look thrilled, but she was) that most of her family was there to be with her! If I had known we were taking pictures, I would have dressed our family more appropriately, but they turned out okay :)
This last week was Spring Break and Brian had to be in Salt Lake for 2 days of business meetings, so we decided to drive together and make it a family vacation! It is a long drive, but we had fun and it was nice being together!
We started our week by walking to Temple Square to listen to General Conference. As usual Temple Square was beautiful. Brian took a few candid shots of us during the prayer, which turned out pretty good...especially since he had the camera cradled under his arm, and just pushed the shutter button...no aiming!
Some pictures of the children listening to Conference with the Temple....
41. My mom is a wonderful teacher of truth ~ she taught me the true gospel of Jesus Christ and she showed me how to live with integrity.
42. My mom taught us the value of hard work and how to do a job the right way the first time!
43. Every time I sit in a restaurant or eat dinner in someone's home, I hear the voice of my mother reminding me how to behave at the table...she tried so hard to raise polite dinner guests. :)
44. I love that I can call my mom on the phone and ask her a question or ask her for advice and she always heads me in the right direction.
45. My mom always looks cute and dresses well, and she has always encouraged us to walk out of the house dressed nice and not looking like "an unmade bed". :)
46. I love that my mom is organized! She taught me to embrace my inner organizer!
47. My mom loves the scriptures and showed us how to study them and appreciate them everyday at the early hour of 5:30 AM!
48. My mom loves to learn and she has given us that desire through encouraging us to go to college, always continuing our education, or just teaching us the importance of making time to read a good book!
49. I love the way she calls the family to "Pray-er!" I don't think I will ever be able to call my family to prayer without making prayer a 2 syllable word! :)
50. I know that my mom has a testimony of the Gospel and she shows me that by how she lives her life. I will always be grateful to my wonderful mother for loving me and caring for me during a difficult transition in my life.
