Inspired By Legoland?

So Price City is having a 100th Birthday soon. And there was a contest for school age kids to build a project using a 100 items. So I told Will that he should do a dinosaur with Legos. The kid did the project entirely on his own. So proud of him. On the way to school though it fell and broke into a 100 pieces, but he re-built it! So now it's on display in a store somewhere in downtown Price. I think we will go looking for it tomorrow!

My New Bathroom!

I know that I said the carpet and stove would be the first thing to go but a couple of weeks ago I was sitting in the bathroom......:).......and I thought to myself how can I lighten up this bathroom and not make it so boring. It was so white. White walls, white tile, white shower curtain, and kind of white counter top. And well if you ever saw my old bathroom in West Jordan you would know that is just not good with me.

So we painted! It's a really pretty blue and then I remember my friend Jill has these really cool bubbles on her wall and I thought, Hey I can do that!
And then we thought why stop with just the walls. The counter top and faucet are disgusting and more than likely as old as the house.

This is a picture of the old. Ugh....so gross!
And here is our beautiful new countertop and faucet. I LOVE IT!!!
New lights too of course and new towel bar also!
This is the final outcome. I just keep walking by it and smiling. I am very pleased!

One more

O.k. here is the other song that he sang. Read my post below to see what this was all about :)

Veterans Program

So last Wed. night Will had a Patriotic singing program at school. At first I was really annoyed because it was the same night as Relief Society and I really wanted to go to that. But once I was there and the kids starting singing and giving talks about America and paying tribute to the people who defended our Country I was SO glad that I went. I always feel a special spirit whenever we talk about the history of this great Country. I am so grateful for all the people before be who fought so hard so that we can live the way that we do today.

It was interesting one of the talks was about James and Dolly Madison. And during the war how James just had the desire to go out and fight with his troops and left Dolly at the White House and instructed her to grab everything that she thought was important and leave. Of course she grabbed the Declaration of Independence and left right before the White House burned down and didn't meet up with James until three days later. But seriously what president today would feel the need to be out there with his troops fighting with them.

O.k. anyways even though the program was really good it was REALLY long. Will's class sang two songs and then the whole k-2nd grade sang the last song. At this point it 8:00 p.m. and they have been sitting there for almost two hours. So they were restless to say the least. Will's teacher said that two kids fell asleep during school the next day.

This video is Will singing the last song. It is short. It was supposed to be serious but he sang it like a rock star (literally!). The video isn't great cause the dumb lady in front of me kept getting in my way (through the whole program too she kept standing up and taking pictures, she was on the front row!) and he is behind a lot of kids. But you can still see him.
