Right now I am listening to the soundtrack to Wicked off the computer. It is just so amazing. I want to stay by the computer so I can listen. I decided to write a blog. When we saw the play of Wicked I was crying the whole time. My dad says I feel things deeply. It reminds me of why I love music so much.

For Christmas Grandma gave me the piano music of Wicked and High School. I've been trying to play it. I love it. I love music.

It was that kind of Day

I'm sure you know about those kind of days when you are just having so much fun you can't believe it. I'm sure you have. It's especially wonderful when you weren't expecting to have nearly as much fun as you are having.

That the kind of day I had on Saturday when my dad, Desi, Morgan, and me went to Salt Lake. It was great! We drove to my cousin Taylor's house. We spent our whole time there. It was the kind of day were you spend the whole time with you family. It was the kind of day when you can goof of with you cousins. It was the kind of day when you can give you cousin a present and she can give you one because it's Christmastime. It was the kind of day when you can show her your blog and together decide what the new background should look like.

It was that kind of day.

It was the kind of day when you can get all the girl cousins over the age of nine and go out to the side of the road and wave and blow kisses and shout Merry Christmas to everyone that goes by. It was the kind of day where you have a big gingerbread house making contest, being on you cousin's team, and making the ugliest ginger bread house and still having the funnest time of all.

It was that kind of day.

It was the kind of day where it's already 6:00 and you have to go home. It was the kind of day when you give your cousin a big hug and say good bye. She is moving to North Carolina. You will miss her.

It was that kind of day.

Christmas Blog

I liked my old blog background but it is Christmas time. I tried on a whole bunch of Christmas backgrounds. This one is best I think. I can't wait for Christmas or the Club Hall program we are having tonight. I am an old crancky lady. It will be fun.

Playing Dolls

Playing doll is really fun. I know because I have done it a lot. We do all kinds of things with our American Girl Dolls. We have birthday parties, we have our dolls go sledding when it is winter, we have them wade around in Boulder when it's summer. We have them skate around on ice. Playing with sisters and dolls is one of the funnest things a person can do. I think that anyway.

On Tuesday we got a really great idea. We were going to have a doll fashion show. For Key Boarding in school, Mom let me make programs and pretend score sheets for the teddy bear judges.

When we finally finished school we went into mine and Desi's room. We had decided to have it there because that door has a lock. First we covered everything with sheets. We covered our beds,the window, our dressers, my bookshelf, (lucky me, I have a bookshelf) and our closet doors. Then we made the stage. It was a stool with a blanket over it with a cardboard box on top that was covered with two doll blankets and parts of the sheets that were covering my bookshelf and my dresser.

That is a confusing sentence. Sorry if you can't understand it.

We also made a red carpet staircase out of a little table, a karaoke machine, the box that held Liberty's doll clothes, and a basket with Liberty's tea set. It was pretty except Liberty wasn't too happy about that arrangement.

Then we brought in a stool that Liberty could stand on and shine a flashlight on the stage. We decorated the room with Christmas decorations from the Living room and a poinsettia flower from the Kitchen table. Last of all we brought in four chairs. They were fore Mom, Hyrum, Morgan, and Carolina. We were really excited to start.

During our show we had each doll do a talent, have a little interview, and model around. It was a huge success except Lina wanted her doll to perform which wasn't aloud and Hyrum kept talking. Those thing were to be expected. Other than that it was great. It was really fun.

Then we could look forward to cleaning up the mess!

What is Happening Right Now at the Johnson House?

If you would like the answer you are lucky. I can tell you.

Right now It is 8:17 and Mom is making German Pancakes. I am at the computer righting this. My mom is sick. She just said into the phone,"I'd like to make an appointment. "It is sad.
Hyrum is building a Star Wars Ship out of of Lego's. they are scattered across the kitchen table even though my mom is trying organize breakfast. He is also whistling constantly. It is a little bit annoying.

Liberty is humming "Here comes Santa Clause" and coloring her homework from speech. It is a board game were you have to say an R word to move ahead.

Carolina is watching Cinderella 2. She has a huge blanket over her and about fifty stuffed animals and dolls set up on all the couches. She is so cute.

Morgan is putting on snow pants so he can go play outside. He loves playing outside a lot. It's sad because Hyrum will never ever voluntarily go outside.

Deseret is in the corner of the living room making a secret Christmas present. That is all the information available for her.

Dad is at work.

That is it. Now you know what is happening here.

Christmas Said boo!

This year Christmas said boo to me. It is Christmas time already. It is crazy but I like it. It is great. Today I wrote my own version of Silent Night. I even have piano music to it. I am going to play it on Christmas Eve.
On Saturday we got our Christmas tree. It was fun. We went with the Ashbys and the Ballards. We had hot chocolate and cookies. Now we have a decorated tree. It's so pretty. There are a zillion presents under there. I can't wait to see them all opened.
Here is poem I wrote.
The Christmas Season
The Christmas season has sprung.
It's something quite magical and special.
Christmas can be rustic and quaint
brightly colored and new.
When I walk into the room were the Christmas tree stands.
It greets me with warm loving boughs.

Running is hard.

I know. I have been running every day for about 3 weeks. This is my typical experience.

7:00, I wake up.

7:02, I complain to Deseret about how hard running is and how I don't want to go.

7:03, Deseret tells me that I don't have to run at all.

7:04, I tell Deseret that I want to run a marathon and be skinny so I do have to.

7:05, Deseret tells me to just go.

7:06, I just go.

Yeah, I know it sounds hard, but my dad bought me expensive running shoes that are part orange and a little bit black. School colors right. There's just one problem. They don't fit. We can take them back though within 30 days even though I wore them outside. They will still let me.
The good thing is that Dad usually goes with me.

Hi, I haven't written here for so long. I am going to start again. I can't believe how fast time is going by. Summer is so over. Fall is definately here! It even snowed today and yesterday.

I love it! We played in it all day yesterday. I can't wait until later until we can sled on our great sledding hill. There's just one problem. I really need snowboots soon. Someday I'll get some.

Another good thing is that we got to have hot chocolate for breakfast yesterday. We also went to the Neff Mill Dinner last night. For those of you that don't know, it is when the Neff's in Ruby Valley come and talk about there mill. Believe me, it's really, really boring. All the kids go outside and play hide-and-go-seek or freeze tag. It gets so cold though. I learned a lesson last year and brought a coat, a hat, and gloves. I was really glad I had.

So it has pretty much been great.

A Problem Every Day

Last week we went to Salt Lake to be in a singing and dancing show called Sunshine Generation run by my aunt Anne. That part was fun but, I want to tell you about our problems. We really had one each of 4 days of our trip.

On Sunday after church we started towards Salt Lake. Dad wasn't with us. He was going to come to see the last performance on Thursday. Everything was great until we stopped in Wendover and got gas. When we got back on the road, whenever we went past 50 mph the car would just shake SO bad. It was scary. So we went back into Wendover to find a tire store. There was only one, and it was closed.

We didn't know what to do, so we called Grandpa. We knew that he would know exactly what to do. He did! He asked if we had had our car washed lately. We had, the day before. He said that at a car wash sometimes there's dirt under your car and the clean part of it, but some is still there. So we needed to go to a car wash and wash under the car really well. Isn't Grandpa so amazing?
We tried one drive through car wash. It didn't work. Mom wanted Dad to come and help her. ( Which might not have been necessary.) He came as fast as he could.

While we where waiting we went to Pizza Hut, and a park. When Dad came we went to a few car washes were you wash the car yourself. Finally one of them worked! Except it was 9:00 by then and we had to stay in a lame hotel in Wendover. Oh well.

The next day (Tuesday) we got up early and started towards Salt Lake. We had practice for the show at 8:00. We didn't know where Anne's new house was. My mom tried to call her but the sound on her phone wouldn't work. I thought I could fix it, but I couldn't. We could see that Anne was trying to call us, but we couldn't here her. We had to stop at my Grandma's house to get directions. We were late for the first practice. Oh well.

Also, we had a show that day and we were at Ikea. We were checking out and had 40 minutes to get to the show. That was plenty of time. . . or was it. No, it wasn't. We finally got all of our stuff to the car, and got everything piled in the car except a box with an unmade bookcase inside. It was heavy. Pretty quick we found that there was no way that bookcase would fit in our car when it was that full. We thought that when Dad came he could take it home in his truck on Thursday. We asked an employee if we could just leave it at Ikea until Thursday. They said no. Then we had to return it. Then Hyrum would not leave the play place and we had trouble with that.
Finally, finally we got in our car. We only had 10 minutes to get to the show. We weren't going to make it. We would be late.

We were OK though until right out of Ikea there was a red light. There were no cars around at all, and the light was really SO long. We waited and waited and waited. Finally, since there was no one around and we were LATE, we just ran the light. Nobody saw us. Except. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . a policeman! Oh no!!! We got pulled over. That policeman was really, really slow. Mom was almost crying. Then finally, finally we were going. The show was already over hath over. Oh well.

The good news was they had technical difficulties, and we were right on time!
On Wednesday I sleeping over with my cousins when my Mom, Hyrum, and Carolina were at Joannes. Lina needed to go to the bathroom. When she was on the toilet she suddenly decided to take her shirt off and drop it in the toilet.

Mom had promised that they could go get ice cream across the street. It was 9:00 and Lina need a shirt. The only place they could find that was open was the Distribution Center. Oh well. Mom bought her a really fancy, long, white dress. She wore it to get ice cream.

On Thursday there actually was no bad thing. Our last performance was amazing. I think. Then we went to Olive Garden. It was a great trip.

Mowing Lawns

Now that I am 12 I can help with my dad's lawn mowing business. I get to mow on the ride-on lawnmower. I was scared at first. I didn't want to get my leg cut off or anything, but now that Dad has showed me how to do it, it is fun.

I really love mowing lawns. My dad wanted to have me to mow my Great Grandma's lawn, which is really big. I was excited until I found out he would leave me there alone after he made me a path. I was scared I would mess up or something would go wrong and he wouldn't be there.
He made a path and then left to mow or weed-eat somewhere else. I got on the mower.

I mowed for along time. I was getting bored. I was humming the song, "Fabulous", from High School Musical 2, (I'm always humming something). I started singing it out loud. I love to sing but usually only hum when other people are around. I sang for along time while I mowed.

I thought, "This is so fun!" Now every time I mow that part of her lawn I sing "Fabulous". It's great.

I've thought of other songs for other places I mow. In our backyard I sing "Oh my Cornelia Corncob Doll. In the front I sing "Let's Go Surfin' Now"or "Lollipop". At the W.R.E.C. building in the back I sing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".

I could them all to you. I love mowing lawns and making money, but I singing the best.

Hi. I am 12. I am happy. I have a great life. I'll tell you about some of the things I like.

I like my family, seeing my cousins, plays, the Missoula Children's Theater, music, singing, jumping on the trampoline, playing the piano . . . sometimes, American Girl,, summer, winter, if it's not too long, spring, fall, grass, sunsets, board games, card games, parties, staying up late, Mutual, my bed, good books, earrings, food, especially chocolate, swimming, writing poetry, rain, roses, Space Mountain, cross stiching, making cookies, eating cookies, watching exciting movies, butterflies, headbands, and sledding.

I probably like more stuff than this, but you're probably getting bored, and I can't think of anything else. Now here's some stuff I don't like.

I don't like the dentist, gardening, math, school, running, doing dishes, folding socks, all animals except butterflies, and hiking.

That's all about me.
