Derby Racing!

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!

Watching paint dry can take forever!

Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Sister!

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!!

I've Been Tagged...

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 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!

New GLERK'D Family History Site!

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!

Poetry Winner!

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!

Witch Stew
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?
Oh wait, I have an idea, I’ll just use you!

Grandma Locke's 87th Birthday!!

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 :)

Sea of Tulips

I went to the Tulip Festival today with my good friend Dyan. It was beautiful!! I love the bright, vibrant colors of the flowers!!

Our Lucky Girl!

Megan will have Good Luck forever!! She found a 4-leaf clover in our backyard today! I'm so jealous...I have lived for 33 years and I've never found a 4-leaf clover! Megan is just a lucky girl! :)

Spring Break in Utah!

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!

General Conference at Temple Square

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 aiming!

Some pictures of the children listening to Conference with the Temple....

Temple Touring

We enjoyed some time on Temple Square by touring the Conference Center and watching the movie at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

While we were waiting to see the movie "Joseph Smith" in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, Brian found a really beautiful view of the temple from inside the waiting room.

We took a tour of the Conference Center and had our picture taken in the very large auditorium.

Jack's Birthday Party!

We loved being with Jack on his 1st Birthday!


The children were really excited to go swimming at the hotel!

Reasons I love my Mom! (#41-50)

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.


For reasons #1-10 see Honor's blog; #11-20 see Cori's blog; #21-30 see Siri's blog; #31-40 see Veronique's blog; #51-60 see Karen's blog and #61 see David's blog! :)

Dirting Adventure

Uncle Richard took Zachary on the Quads yesterday for his birthday present! They had a great time, even though the weather was cold and they were a filthy mess when they were done :)

Zachary was soaking wet, dirty and freezing cold after his fun adventure :)
