A Big Announcement

My daughter Emma loves to color and she is very good at it. Give her a coloring page and some crayons and she is content for awhile. She is only 4 years old and she stays in the lines and does a really good job. Recently Granite Credit Union had a color contest. They had 3 different coloring pages and so I got one of each for Emma. She was excited. She colored them all in one day. Last friday we went to the Credit Union and Emma went with me and we turned in her coloring pages. I told her we had to put her name on the back because it would be terrible if they thought hers was the best and then couldn't find a name and phone # on it so they had to choose someone else.

Saturday I was out running a few errands and I got a call from Granite Credit Union. They told me that my daughter Emma had won the coloring contest and that I could go and pick up her prize. I went and picked it up and then took it home and showed Emma. She was so excited. These are pictures of the 3 coloring pages she did.
My favorite is the carousel. I wonder if this one was the winning picture!!!
In her little prize bag she got some bubbles, a glow necklace, and candy.
It was pretty exciting and I am really proud of my little artist!!

Happy Birthday Landon

Today was Landon's birthday and he turned 6 years old. He is a lucky boy because he got 2 birthday parties. We celebrated with family last Saturday and today when he got home from school he had a party with his friends. So first I will tell you about his party last Saturday. For the theme of his party he wanted a detective party. So I made a file folder shaped invitation that said confidential on the front. On the inside it said "Landon has selected you to be part on an elite 6th birthday spy training camp team. Your mission should you choose to accept it, isto rendezvous at the given coordinates and time and be prepared for fun!!! (RYSB) Report Your Status By. Then it had the date and all the other info. Here is a picture of the inside and outside.The first thing the kids did when they got there was a Scavenger Hunt that was made by Jamie and copied by Jake. Thanks Jamie and Jake for all your help with that. Jamie took pictures of different things in my dad's backyard and the kids had to find them. This is what it looked like. For dinner we roasted hot dogs, and had baked beans, potato salad, and chips. It was so good. Then Landon opened his presents. We told people that he needed some boy toys. And they delivered. He also got clothes and a Brag Board from Jamie that he can hang his school work on.

After presents we had a pinata for the kids instead of goody bags and ate cake.

Here are a few other pictures from the party last Saturday. Enjoy!!
Today's party was a little bit more low key. I told Landon he could invite 6 of his friends since he would be 6 years old. We met at the playground of the townhouses we live in. We started out by playing a couple of games. First we played Duck, Duck, Goose.
Then we played Red Light Green Light
Then Simon Says. I didn't get any pictures of that game. Then he opened his presents. Once again he got some good toys. Then we had ice cream cones. One boy Xander got stung by a bee so I asked my friend Stephanie if she knew what to do and she told me to mix baking soda and water into a paste and to put it on him. So we did and I think that made him feel a littel better.
Happy Birthday Landon. We Love You!!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Today was my birthday!! I celebrated my birthday with my family last Sunday. I got the new book Breaking Dawn and I am experiencing self control because I need to read 2 other books before I can start that one. I also got tickets to go see Brian Regan on August 13, 2008. Jamie made me a cool sesonal craft like the one she made for the craft exchange at Ruby's Inn. I also got some jewelry.

Today started out with me and my mom going to be in the audience at Good Things Utah. It was so much fun. It was cool to see how things actually worked on the set. The set is a lot smaller than it looks on TV. For those of you who don't know Good Things Utah or GTU is a show that is hosted by 4 ladies. They are Nicea, Angie, Marti, and Reagan. Angie is in my ward but I hadn't ever talked to her. They do a cooking segment, craft segment, and other things. Before the show started Marti asked the audience who was celebrating a birthday and I raised my hand. At the end of the show they tell whose birthday it is in the audience and you get to wave. Also at the end we got to get our pictures taken with them and talked to them a little. I sat by Reagan and told her that I had a daughter named Reagan and she asked how old and I told her she was almost 2. They asked me what else I was doing for my birthday and I told them I was going out to lunch and to a movie with my husband. They were really nice. It was a fun experience.
In the photo is: Nicea, Angie, Marti, Reagan, Me, and my Mom

When we got back my mom watched Emma and Reagan (Landon was in School) and Dave and I went and saw The Dark Knight. It was pretty intense. I thought it was good but a little too violent and I don't think it is a movie that I will see again. It was nice to spend some time with Dave though. And it was a very fun day and I really enjoyed it!!!
