Paige's Sweet Sixteen Party

Well, with all the car accident drama, I never got around to blogging Paige's sweet sixteen party. We had a dance floor outside with a disco ball, fire pits around the pool, balloons in the pool, lots of streamers, lots of food, Guitar Hero on the wii, and LOTS of Paige's friends, and family. It was a great party, and I think everyone had a great time. Paige has a lot of good friends.

"Mormon" Prom

Paige with a few of her girlfriends before going to "Mormon" Prom. For those who don't know, it's like regular school prom, but there's a dress code, and rules of conduct, and even though it was at a nice place, a local golf course with a nice dinner, it was a lot cheaper than school prom. They've been having it for a few years now, and it seems to be a hit.

My Cub Scouts' Mother's Day Project

Well, I wanted to come up with something original for my cub scouts to make for their mothers for Mother's day this year. I decided to make "posey pins". First, I bought a box of mini bubble wands at Michael's. They are intended for weddings.

Next, I had my husband cut them down with this little saw he has, down to about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.

Next, we stuck on an adhesive pin-back, smeared tacky glue all over the rest of the bottle, rolled it in tiny glass seed beads, then rolled it in a good quality glitter (Martha Stewart from Michael's), and let them dry.

After they dried, we tied ribbon around them, and on Mother's day, the boys are instructed to go cut a flower from their yard (or have Dad buy a bouquet), and you put a little water in it with the flower, and Mom has a wearable vase, rather than corsage!
The boys had fun making them, and I think Mom will actually like to wear it!
