Prophet Gordon B. Hinkley Dies at age 97

I just heard on Monday that our prophet Gordon B. Hinkley had just passed away that evening. It's amazing at what he's done in the I think 15 years he's been prophet. He will be missed.

Also, on the topic of passing away, Heath Ledger, the Joker the the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight" passed away also on Jan. 22nd at 20 years old. The police suspect an overdose of perscription drugs, and the role as the sick-twisted mind of the Joker influenced him.

Sad. Hope there will be some happy news soon (My brothers birthday the 30th, my birthday the 9th of Feb!!!! ).

Klondike Bar? Not Where I Went...

I just got back from the Klondike derby. Basically it's a contest for each scout troop to put they're skill's to the test. I think we did ok, but our troop was a little loose, meaning we didn't really bring a flag, we didn't stay the full two nights (because it leads into Sunday. They're probably have they're big campfire now), and since we didn't stay the two nights, we don't really pass camp inspection, since they do that last, and we're not they're, so... yeah. But if we did stay, my guess is that we would come in about 3rd, maybe 4th, not sure. It was fun though, we tied knots, went blind folded through an obstical course, and at the end we had to race with our sled for about 1/4 of a mile. It was 13 degrees, and I forgot my lunch, and mess kit for lunch, and a good sleeping bag (I had a sleeping bag, just not a good one).

Well, on the upper side; it was fun.

On the lower side; there are never any Klondike bars there.

Not Much...

Well, I don't really have anything specific to write about. So I'm just going to go over what has happened in the past week or so.

JJ's B-day was the 15th. He turned 3. Noah's Birthday is the 30th, so we have to do more shopping. Mine is February 9th, so I have a little ways to go. My Grandma visited for about a week while my parents went to Florida to visit some friends. She just left on Monday. So sad. My mom went to the wrong airport, but she would've missed her flight anyways. When we got to JFK, she got another flight that left at 4:00 pm. But that flight would travel from NY, all the way to Palm Springs in CA. Then back to UT. So in total she was in th plane for about 9 hours. :(

Thats about pretty much whats happened. I should have more to say after my Birthday...

My new name...

I have an aunt, and she has a nick name for me. Slub. My Grandpa has a nick name for me. Cal. My other grandpa has a nick name for me. A Big Lug.

Therefore, my new name is Big CalSlub-a-Lug.....

Don't you just LOVE relatives?


I've got a big Calvin and Hobbes book I got from the library. I haven't read much of, well, that is before I got it. It's very funny. It's about a six year old boy named Calvin, who always gets into trouble, and a stuffed tiger (which through out the comic is very real to him). They do all sorts of stuff. It's very hard to explain what's funny about it, so do yourself a favor, and get a newspaper that has Calvin and Hobbes, or get a big book with lots of their comics in it. You may find it very addicting.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

I guess it's a tiny bit to late to be saying those things, but it's better than not saying them at all. Hope all of you (who read my blog) had a good X-mas. a cold winter (it's about 6 degrees here, and surprisingly no snow on the ground), and WILL have a good 2008! I had fun. I got a wii for Xmas (it's been forever since we've had video games. We had the first Nintendo that was like, 20 years old. It lasted us a good time, but the Wii is a lot better), and our family got an iPod! It was fun at the New Year party. We all watched the TV, watching the ball drop. It was the second time I REMEMBER watching the ball drop. I may have seen it before, but i forgot it. The first time I saw it, I thought the ball was actually going to drop, not be slowly lowered down by an invisible crane. Oh well. We drank Martinelli's about 2 seconds into the new year. I tried my best to drink it, but I have never like Sparkling Cider, but it did tatse a little bit better that one time...
Anyways, it was very fun.

The downfall of all this is... we have to waitabout 357 day till the next Christmas, and 362 days till 2009!

Haha. :P
