Claire's B-Day!!

Claire's B-Day...........A BLAST!!!
We had a BIG party (in the morning with our family) and it was REALLY entertaining! Ok, I have NO clue why this post is all highlighted!!!
This was the big day to get her ears pierced!! My mom tried to talk her out of it and going it next year or when she was 8. But, Grace convinced her that she did it when she was 6 so her and Claire could of said, "We both got or ears pierced when we were 6!!!!", and thats what they did.
Anyway, my mom baked the marvelous cake and my mom, my sisters,(Yes, Claire helped with her cake.) and me, made the flowers on in with a bunch of little candies. I thought it was an EXTREMELY creative idea my mom had!!!
We'll no we did not get her ears pierced at "Claire's" but we were about to until the worker there could only do it one at a time and it might hurt her so we went to Icing. Claire was there just sitting on the chair with little tears streaming down her cheeks. When my mom figured out that she had to have her drivers license, we had to call my dad and have him come and show his to her because she had lost it a while ago.
When al the paperwork was done, they shot the "gun". And.... we'll one "gun" was broken and didn't go all the way through. they had to "re"pierce that ear and Claire, Claire wasn't happy.
After it was all over she was proud and knew she was very BRAVE!!!! (We'll braver than me anyway.... I chickened out and waited until I was 7 but didn't cry. Claire did it when she was 6, and cried a little bit.)
After that adventure was over, we came back home to have some delicious cake and ice cream.
I love this picture (up). Lucy saw all her sisters give a "wide-mouth smile" to the cake in the picture before and she thought it was pretty funny (and fun)!!!

No, not snow here..... I wish...., But snow,yes! The icy pure white snow that is in all the Christmas songs and NEVER comes to the Desert. Ya, that snow!!!
We were invited to an amazing cabin up in Flagstaff, it was SO nice!!! The little snowflakes on the ground that would sink when you walked through them. (No snow falling when we were there! :( We had a BLAST with the Cardons!!
Not including the AMAZING Sacrament Meeting we had!! All the parents were laughing about getting so early and joking about how much we were going to really LISTEN in the second row. Until they saw all of us in a row just sitting and listening to a 17 year old exchange student and her spiritual testimony in English, (which she learned).After, Rebecca told us that this was the most shes ever listed in Sacrament Meeting. After that I wonder how they felt.
Anyway, we loved it!!!

Sledding was F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!

Thanks, Cardons!!!

That's right Sea World. I took Oceanography at school.......... More homework, and a "Final Project" that took a lot of work. And FINALLY, it's time!!! It was in January (I know! Im pretty late!)!!! We went there on a Carter Bus and we were allowed to bring cell phones,(which I don't have) , I-pods, and more!!! It was SO amazing!!! I learned more about all the teachers and my friends and I had a FANTASTIC time! The animals were amazing. The rides were AWESOME and the hotel was really cool, too! Here are some pictures! I know, there not the BEST but, at least we will remember!!!

The club stopped by a big bell that the Japanese or I don't know who!!! But one thing i do know about it is that it is big and they gave it to California. They ring it like every 4th of july i think and New Year.......
.....Ya, it's BIG!!
