Happy Kid's Day!

I started a new tradition in our family- Kid's Day. I mean, there's Mother's Day, Father's Day, what about kids (I know you are thinking "Every day is kid's day!")? So, I found out today is Mexican Kid's Day (or something like that)!

This morning I woke up and came down to see on the counter a sheet that said "Happy Kid's Day!" and some presents next to it. There was a coupon book (I can't wait to use some of those!) that is for kids and Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison for McCall and I to share. We went to breakfast at the Original Pancake House and went to the library. It was fun!

Happy Kid's Day!

Brexton Kyler

Aww! My sister had her baby (as many of you probably know) and he is adorable! Before he was born, we had a baby shower for him (online!) and it was fun. it is weird to think that I am an aunt- and Mom and Dad are grandparents!!

Brexton is 7 pounds 10 ounces, 20 inches long, and a great (new) part of our lives. Love ya Baby!

The Temple Trip

A while ago, Mom and I went on a Mother-Daughter Night thing-a-ma-bob. It was fun. We drove to the Northland Inn, and stayed in a nice suite on the 5th (or something) floor. At first we thought it wouldn't be too fancy, but it was... I loved it! That night we hung out- I bought a CD I wanted, we went to Target, and we got snacks. We watched TV- Shrek was on- and were going to go swimming but the pool was closed.

The next morning, we went to the St. Paul Minnesota temple. it was nice- my first time! We went shopping a bit then went home. Thanks for the fun, Mom!

And, yesterday our ward went to do work in the temple. It was really enjoyable (my 2nd time) :)

The Roadshow

Now, I was in YWs. I was (and am still) SO excited! They gave me a medallion, a book, journal, you know the rest. I ended up with 3 For the Strength of Youth pamphlets! I got my temple recommend (can't wait!), and a lot of fun stuff happened.

With YWs comes mutual. With mutual comes a roadshow. With a roadshow comes a dance.

Let me back up. My first mutual was combined and playing Bunco (the boy's idea). After only a few weeks of mutual, we started working on our roadshow. It was The Courageous Youth Hunter. I had fun and was part of a dance in our "cultural event".

After we had a cast party. And STAKE DANCE!!!!!!! I got to go. It was SO fun. Being my first dance, I was ReAlLy excited! I fast danced, I slow danced. Here is my schedule. LOL

Slow Dancing
  • 1 dance+2 seconds with __him_____ (no one will know!!!) omasthay
  • 2 dances with __someone_____ (no one will know!!!) ackjay
  • 1 dance & 1 holding hands session with__he_ (idk know him really) imeonsay

...they had this spoon game and we had to hold hands.

  • 1 dance with ____that guy____ (I can't remember his name) omeonesay
  • 1 dance with ___another one___(no one will know!!!) ollincay

It went something like that. This is random...but... I WON ANIMAL CRACKERS! lol The whole thing was ssssooooooooo fun. I will always remember that dance.

Hint: do you know pig-latin?

My Birthday

I know. This topic should have been covered a LONG time ago, but better late than never, right? My birthday. Oh, it was great.

I had a party with some of my friends. it was covered in PINK and GREEN! We pretended we were at a hotel. My family was the staff- we rang for roomservice, had a morning buffet, complimentary items (eyemasks, shampoo, conditioner), and PARTIED. But just a tip- NEVER LET YOUR GUESTS PICK OUT THE MOVIE!
We heard

"That movie is scary! "

"That movie is cheesy! "

"No, not ThAt one!"

Finally we decided on something (it wasn't on my list of choices!) and had fun. But- I wish I hadn't fallen asleep LOL.

One thing that was especially fun was that Marissa visited the day of the party! We felt her tummy and the girls got to help think of baby names.

Even after the party more fun was coming! But, uh, this post is getting long so... I'll write another with the rest!

A Confession

A new color has made it's way into my favorites.

Yeah, I know!

It is...


But, don't worry... pink isn't going away!

That's right, I'm back. By this point I don't know if anyone will even think of checking my blog! So, we did these essays at school a couple months ago. We sent them to a contest. Out of the whole state, 3 people in our class were part of the top 55 letters. Not only that, but the FIRST PLACE WINNER was among us! We found out and we all knew why- hers was amazing! She is entering it in a national competition and gets a reward for it! She really has talent.

It's cool to say that the winner was in our class :)
