BYU Jazz Festival

I had a BYU Jazz Festival yesterday (Saturday), so the Jazz Band played at it.
I'm pretty sure we did pretty good, because the judge didn't have much to say. It was a lot of fun. It was from noon to 11:00. It was funny though when I went to dinner the guitarist (James) came up to me and started complaining to me that he couldn't find a real Coke. And how he went up to one of the places at the food court type thingy and asked why they didn't sell anything with caffeine in it and how they started explaining that they were Mormon and couldn't drink it and how he thought it was really stupid. It was kind of a had to be there moment, the look on his face was really funny. Then after dinner we started making paper airplanes and trying to throw them up on a banister type thing that was over us, and ended up banning our drummer (Steven) from making paper airplanes. One of his hit our trombonist in the nose and cut it, and about killed this old man. And Steven, just so he won't get in trouble, turns to me and starts mouthing out words like we were having a conversation. So I look up to this kid (I was sitting down and he was standing) that looked like he was having a conversation with the wall, it was pretty freaky. So then, we went to a Jazz Concert (still at BYU) and had a prayer before it started, it was kind of weird. Normally, you don't have a prayer before a concert, but it was cool. The Saxophone player at the beginning was absolutely amazing! He could make those elephant noises on his saxophone!! It was so cool! That's about all that happened there, it was really cool though.
Hope you all have a great week!

Another Post

My parents did decide to come home, dang (just kidding, it's good to have them home). I have to show you all the cowgirl hat they got me that is absolutely amazing! Fred you would love it!!
Emily went to the Valentine's dance last night with a kid who she had been bragging about was the cutest kid alive. It was funny, when I saw him I thought she was crazy or up on drugs. There is no way I would ever think that kid is cute. EEWW!
I am doing ANOTHER fundraiser for Jazz Band tour. Man, I am so sick of those things. I am selling cookie dough and candles if any of you want some. It was crazy, some weird guy came and started telling how to talk to people. It was freaky, he kept going on and on about how we should ask people if they want to help us and not ask them if they want to buy the stuff we are trying to sell, for about an half and hour. Man, that guy would not be quiet.
Well, thats about it. I hope you all have fun!

This Past Week

This week has been pretty good with the having to watch my crazy brothers and Brenda helping. My mom and dad are hopefully coming home tonight, they might have decided Mexico was better and decided to stay.
We still don't have a guitarist in Jazz Band. He said he was going to come to school this week and try and play with us, but he never did. I just hope he can play by this Saturday, the 16th, because the Jazz Band has a BYU festival to play at, and he has a solo in 2 of the songs we are playing. I will be mad if he doesn't go. The funny thing is we have five bass players.... persons and only one of them can go to the festival. Hopefully, we do good at it this year.
Well, that's my week, love ya

I can't believe the Patriots didn't win!! I'm so T.O.ed about that. I almost went up and kicked the television when that happened. Stupid Tom Brady, if he would have done the short passes at the beginning and not had a race with himself to see who can throw the ball the farthest. We probably would have won. I know it wasn't all Tom Brady, the whole team wasn't on top of their game, it looks like. *sigh* I guess they can always kick the Giant's butts next year. haha
Love you all

The Week

This week again nothing really happened again.
My parents decided to ship themselves off to Mexico. Hurray for them, they have eighty degree weather.
It has snowed like fifty bagillion feet already today..... so hopefully we have a snow day tomorrow because Emily refuses to drive to school.
In Jazz Band, we don't have a guitarist for the next month. The one we had decided to go snow boarding and shatter his arm. He is not the brightest kid, if you couldn't tell.
That is pretty much it except for the Super Bowl in an hour, and we all know who is going to win!! Go Patriots!!! So, Brenda took us to Acres with her last night, so I asked Brandon what we needed for the Super Bowl. He looked at me like I was some sort of freak, said nothing, and started explaining to me that we had enough food at our house already. So I ask Josh what he thinks we need and we walk off so he can show me. Man, that kid is crazy. Everything he saw he wanted me to get, he even wanted toilet paper!!!! We ended up walking by the Hostess section and he decided he wanted all of them, so I told him he could choose one. He, of course, chose the one with the most in the box, which was some Ding Dongs. So I bought a box of Ding Dongs for the Super Bowl.
love you all
