the Brigham City Temple

We've had a few requests to post some photos of the work in progress on the BC Temple.
Here ya go!!!

This is where the ground falls away in the back to be used as parking.

This is the Tabernacle across the street.

the Great Hair Mishap

When I was a child I got gum stuck in my hair and it had to be cut. (Maybe it was one of my sisters; I'm not sure.) My hair was longer to begin with so the cut wasn't too dramatic. Well, Erin got a small round brush so stuck in her hair today that she had to have her hair cut too. We tried to get it out with detangler and some good old fashioned pulling to no avail.

Her hair is much shorter than mine was back in the day. It was starting to hurt so we took a deep breath and chopped the brush off. Yikes!

Then we had to run and get an emergency pixie cut before all the shops closed.

I love it! She looks so cute! She kept saying that she feels stupid for getting the brush stuck but I told her almost every woman I know has had to have an emergency hair cut at some point in her life.


Discovery Museum SLC

My Mom and Dad now live in an apartment smack dab in the middle of downtown Salt Lake City. So last weekend we went down to visit. We hit the Discovery Museum but we got there by riding the tram. The kids loved it.

The museum in Columbia, SC is almost identical to this one (the Discovery museum there is better). Instead of a giant boy in the middle however there is a giant metal beehive.

After the museum the kids went to grandma and grandpa's to eat dinner and visit and Chad and I went out for a fancy-schmancy dinner at an Italian place. Very nice!

Bathroom Redo

Naturally, I forgot to take a before picture! Here is the main bath after we had ripped out the old tile and begun re-sheet rocking the walls.  I'm sure most of you remember the peach tile. The person who installed it stapled chicken wire to the sheet rock and then cement over the chicken wire and then tiled on the cement. That stuff was NOT coming off. The easiest thing to do was just cut the sheet rock from the studs with the tile still attached. The demo work was LOUD. Here's dad's homemade earplugs.

We picked a great 9 by 12 cream/marbled tile to replace the lovely peach.

Here we are all grouted and ready to go. It will take a few more days for the residue to wash off but I'm very happy with how it turned out. Thanks Mom and Dad for all the hard work and teaching!!

Of A Sunday

Yesterday Chad and I went shopping and (among many other things) we got some new church clothes for the kids. When we walked through the shop I almost squealed! How cute are our kiddies!
