Suvivor Springville 2008!!!

My friend Kara has an antique store here is Spanish Fork where we live. Springville city was having a "corporate survivor challenge" and they needed 6 business to enter. She just happened to see the city flyer and called to sign up. She asked me and 4 other girls if they wanted to participate and of course we did. Here are some pics from this 3 day event. It was a blast!!!
Above are the winners and players of survivor China. Todd who has the microphone won first place and Courtney the one in the tank top won second. Todd acutally lives in Pleasant Grove which is just a few miles north of us. My favorite was Frosty he was very down to earth and nice. (he is between todd and courtney)

This was Saterday night. We had a loooooooong day and it was nice to relax for a bit.

This was a challenge on Saterday afternoon. We we tied together and had to follow strings with a ring to get papers that spelled out a phrase. We lost this one.

Here we are pictured with Courtney and Jamie from survivor and a few of the kids that came to cheer us on.

This was a fun challenge. You had to capture lunch bags that had items in them and if u got the right one u could cross it off the list they gave us. If the item was wrong u had to throw it back. We won this challenge!@!

This is when we are throwing bricks and breaking tiles that we made.

Here is everyones tiles.

We won this challenge! One of our tiles survived it was great.

This is jo doing the endurance challenge. She did great and stayed up when we thought she was gonna fall. They went from 2 feet to one and she balanced awesome!

This challenge there were manilla envelopes in the feild and we had to run to the numbers in order and retrieve a letter from them. There were 19 letters in all. We got to have one of the original China members run a leg for us and we had Frosty do the last one. He was so fast and he also knew where #19 was.

The phrase that we had to spell was.
"outwit, outlast, outplay"

This is us waiting for the parade to start. One challenge was to scoop as much Manure as possible. They said we didnt nessesarily have to stay on the parade route. We could get manure anywhere we could find it. We just did the parade route.

This was friday night at the springville pool. We needed to keep the pool above water. Me and Jo had buckets and tried to drown other peoples pool. We lost this one pretty fast. The pool got really heavy.

Thursday night was the opening dinner and orientaion. They started the challenges after dinner. This one was hard. My teamates would put a dish on my tray and I had to hold it up and balance it. We lost.

Thursday before dinner we met some of the winners of Survivor China. They were very nice and down to earth people.

People kept cheering for the "pooper scoopers" so we cheered back!

This was our team flag and we got these really neat swim caps for the competition at the pool. It was so much fun.

Am I Floating?

So Aleah came into my room and sat on the floor like this and preceded to ask me " Mom tell me when I start to float". She was very matter of fact like she was sure it was gonna happen. Of course I told her that I would be able to tell better if I got my camera.

In this one I said that I thought she was floating just a little bit. She opened her eyes in surprise and that is when I got the picture. Pretty cool... My daughter says the weirdest things.

I eat it RAW!!!

So Addi decided to take an ear of corn off the counter and eat it. Of course it is raw. It was for dinner. He didnt care. I guess I didnt either. Jason eats this kind of stuff all the time. Potatoes, corn, and other things and he eats them all raw.... GROSS!

"Look mama I eat it!"

I have acepted what I can not change...

So my hair has always been a hassle to deal with. I cant just let it dry because it gets really frizzy and u think "yamma Hamma!" what happened to her? I would see girls at school with hair that was naturally straight and sleek and so shiny.
I admit I was envious of their straightness. Since having kids my hair has gotten curly and more curly and just plain crazy. So with a little help from my teeny tiny curling iron I can tame it into a semblance of order and it comes out looking pretty good. I have started to get compliments and so maybe straighter is not better?
I still love straight hair but I have acepted what I have been given. Its better than having no hair at all right?

This is the look of aceptance....... It doenst look to bad today.

Happy Birthday girls....

Alizebeth is 12!!!!!!
So Lizzie turned 12 this last weekend and so we had a party on Sunday. We ussally get together with friends for games and dinner and so we threw in cake and ice cream too.
Aleah also had a birthday and so we did both parties together. Here are some highlights from the party.

Lizzie wanted butterfinger cake. We all love it and so of course it was a great pick!

Addi helped Liz blow out her candles

Aleah wanted cupcakes

Addi helped her too. We had to do it again cause he blew it out before she could. She was not happy. U can still see the smoke from the candle!
