Music & The Spoken Word/Weekend Adventures

We went to the Spoken Word this weekend. We took the girls and Austin who
was down for the weekend from Idaho. It was a pretty snowy drive to SL but we
managed to get there in time. Its a great 30 min. show of the choir and orchestra.
After we walked around the church history museum they just renovated the the
children's area a great place to take your kids. Older ones liked it to.
They Jess, Mia and Austin also went to Flo rider in Ogden and did a little surfing.

Cookie recipe over on
Mia and Ella made heart cookies on saturday she had a good time
she wanted to make hearts and stars and flowers,
and she likes pink and purple and sprinkles and polka dots
Friday we went to the Mandarin in Bountiful for my Birthday.
wishing you were here with us Beck. Sorry...but it really was good
we'll take you there when you come home. Yeah it was so good
that we took pics before we ate and none of the food because
we were all stuffing our faces......

Me and Ella she liked trying to use the chopsticks (How's our hair Ella's is getting long)
Hudson eating fishy crackers and nothin else
Ben, Kj and Jodi telling some compelling story
Dad liked the big lazy susan in the middle you could turn it to steal food
that someone else was trying to get.
Ella cheering everyone
The girls thinking they're cute Jess is going to say hey I didn't photoshop that pic yet
Jess's fortune. . . . Your wisdom has kept you far away from danger
We went shopping after and everyone was trying on sunglasses

bathroom make-over WOO HOO:>

Here we go Rebekah. Just so you know that we are doing a few projects
around the house. We decided to tackle the downstairs bathroom.
Re-grouting the shower, hopefully taking care of the leaking problem.
New sink and cabinet in next week. New shower door that doesn't leak.
New floor. Should be good.
Cost: paint $25.00 rock took 13 12x12 sheets
8@ $2ea and 5@$5ea $20 for grout.
not bad. The shower door replacement could prove to be a
challenge its not a standard size of course were working with
a 30 year old house here.
The before... turquoise walls and all
new paint and down to cement after scraping two layers of linoleum up
John working around the john...ha ha
laying out the rock figuring out the flatter ones to lay in the walkway
and the bumpier ones to the back

the rock is set we wait overnight very bumpy at this point before grout
John applying the grout and waiting for it to set up a little. We worked
around the toilet I think its in there permanently hope it doesn't break.
Then lots of washing to get the rocks to reveal and clean them up.
The wall color isn't really this yellow its more tan like the upper color
To bad we couldn't do something to that old nasty shower, but we are
getting a new door. We'll put the new cabinet and sink in next
week after we seal the floor.
