We have a movie star!

My Miss Ellie will be a movie star...well, sorta. Right now she is in Park City with the opportunity to be an extra in a movie! She is so thrilled and this is a great opportunity for her. Her good friend Abby was invited to be an extra and there was room for one more girl and Ellie was invited. We got her ready in about 3 hours which was crazy. She had to take all of her winter clothes and needed a few other things for the movie. We got her all packed and loaded and off to Park City she went. She will miss 3 days of school and I am ok with that. What a fun thing for her to do. Little sister Emma was not even jealous...she was happy for her big sister to go and do something fun like this. I will miss Ellie while she is gone but hope she has a wonderful time. She also gets to make lots of money which will be great for her. She really wants to buy a dog. I will post what movie it is later on and when it will be released. I hope she gets in lots of good shots. Maybe they will take notice of her and offer her a million bucks....she would totally be worth that but I think her beauty and spirit is priceless! This was her first time singing solo on stage for a ward talent night few years ago. She did an amazing job and I was so proud of her. She's loves to sing and has a very sweet voice.

Random stuff.

Here are a few random pics. My kids are so creative. We don't have TV so the kids find all kinds of fun and crazy things to do. Why do we not have TV? For one thing, I will not pay for cable. There is so much junk on TV these days that I don't want it in my house and don't want to waste my money. I have no interest in all of the sit coms and everything else that is on. I guess I feel like I waste my time when I watch TV. So in turn I waste my time on FaceBook! My husband on the other hand would love to have cable so he could watch his BYU Cougars. Anyway, back to the kids. They love to make tails and pretend to be different animals. Sometimes I have found them all decked out with tails, ears, noses, paws, etc....all made out of paper. This first picture is of Slater. He was so proud of a tail he made for himself. It is so small that you can't even see it. Silly boy. The girls have a few dress up clothes and it is fun to see what combinations they come up with.

This is GG Smith. She is my dear of my hero's! I love her so much and it was fun to visit with her a few weeks back. She lives in Utah and doesn't get to see family too often. She is one of only two Great-Grandmother's that my kids have that are left living.

This is Great-Grandma Hamblin, Dave's Grandma. She is 90 something and seems ageless. We love her. I love this picture with all of my kids and her. She is a great lady and is a spunky one. She also lives in Utah and we were able to visit her too!

Still cute after the hair cut!

Two inches.....gone!

This is what I looked like before my mom got to me. If my mom wanted to she could put little pigtails in.....not! Mom, whatcha doin to my hair?

Now I look like my big brother!
Ta da! Look mom, no hair!

So funny!

So, I was just telling my girls that I have a friend who is around my age who likes to collect "The Littlest Pet Shop" pets. My girls said, "What? She is your age and collects those? Cool!" Then Emma says, "You mean she's an old woman like you?" I laughed and laughed. I thought that was one of the funniest things she has ever said. I say it's great that I have a friend who collects those and I guess you are never too old to collect toys.
