Stuff

I don't know what to write about. Seriously, there is like nothing going on in my life right now. That is the problem with summer: at first you really enjoy having nothing to do all day, but after a while it gets boring. Lets see.......... Thelly won the Pinewood Derby on Thursday. He and my dad worked really hard this year. I think my dad went a little crazy. He went and bought $45 wheels on the internet and a kitchen scale so he could be EXACTLY precise in the weight. But they had a weigh-in for the cars on Wednesday night, and the lady in charge used a really cheap scale- like REALLY cheap. So everybody had to take a lot of weight off their cars (according to my dad it is a good thing to have a heavy car and a bad thing to have to take weight off). After the weigh-in everybody left their car at the lady-who-was-in-charge's house. Everyone else just left their car, but my dad had this great big box that was all padded inside and everything. It was kinda funny. He won 1st place though, so I guess it was worth it.
I had my book club on Saturday. It's not really a book club, but I invite all the girls from church that are my age to come over to my house and we make some kinda dessert. I usually only get 2 or 3 people, but it's still fun. This time we made chocolate pie, and it was GOOD I tell you!
Mom went to the temple on
Saturday night, so my dad and brothers and i took advantage of that by watching lotsa tv. Star Wars, specifically. Dad went a little color- blind and he thought that Darth Maul's lightsaber was green. So me and my brothers all told him he was crazy and he said we were crazy, so we had a bet. If he was right, we all had to eat double-helping of whatever vegetable he chose. If we were right, we got to stay up later on whatever night we chose. Of course, Darth Maul has a red lightsaber, so we each get to stay up late on any night we choose. I think I'm gonna finally get to see a whole episode of So You Think you Can Dance!
On Sunday I gave my first talk ever in sacrament meeting. It was about Father's Day. I didn't think I did a very good job (it was super short and everything I said was obvious) but of course no one will say that to your face so they all tell you that you did great even though I did NOT do great, I just did average for a first talk. My aunt and uncle both gave talks too, so my mom got to hold my baby cousin. I WANTED TO HOLD MY BABY COUSIN!!!!!!!!! :( :( But I got to hold her on Saturday while my aunt ran a b-day party for her son, (Star Wars themed, of course) so I guess it was OK. My aunt holds the coolest parties. She decorated the whole house and sent out really cool customized invitations and set all the food up to look fantastic and taste really good and she got her neighbor to come over and be Darth Vader an everything. It's awesome, truly.

Hey, maybe I have stuff going on in my life after all...............

  2. I think it's funny your dad lost a bet about Darth Maul's light saber.

    I don't really remember how my first talk in Sacrament Meeting went, but I do remember people telling me I did a great job. And I'm sure I remember thinking at the time that they were full of crap.

    That Star Wars party sounds awesome!

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
