On to book five...


Well, I have finally finished book four (again...) and I believe I have finished perfectly on time for my reading schedule, which was surprising because I didn't read 80 pages everyday...but the past few days I read more than 80...must've made up for it. ANYWAY, if I keep up with the 80 pages a day routine...I will be finished a couple days before the 7th comes. I can't wait!

Tomorrow we are going to Rigby Lake. I am SO excited. I will get to wear my new swimsuit! Then we are having the Marshalls over for dinner, our new couple friends. Then after dinner, clay and some men from the ward are having a huge HALO party. Halo is an x-box game. If you don't know what an x-box is, it is a device to play video games on. Anyway, it should be fun I guess. I don't know what me and the girls will do, but we will probably just chat and gossip about our husbands. OH! And I decided on neither taco salad nor teriyaki chicken. I decided to make parmesan chicken and french bread. Yummm....

Clay finished his painting on the huge canvas I gave him for christmas. For those of you who don't know, Clayton is a very talented artist, and very humble...no one knows of his talent until they ask who painted the paintings on our walls. He has amazing paintings that he did in his young teens that we have hanging. His latest painting is a bit interesting, probably strange to some...but we love it. I think he did great! Anyway, I just thought you'd like to see them. The biggest one, is his most recent. Love you all!




This one he did when he was 14....

This one he did when he was 12...it is a pencil drawing (my picture wasn't very well taken of this one; it was dark and the flash caused a big light in the picture...)

This one he did just under a year ago....

This one he also did when hew as 14...

This is his newly finished one! Fun huh?

PS. All the paintings are done with oils. VERY impressive:)

Clay, those are so awesome! You are so talented! If I had the money- I would pay you to paint something for me; seriously. That is incredible. I can't believe you did the ones when you were so young! You are so talented! I'm excited for when you have more time to paint, and you can decorate your house with all your art. I really want to see anything you paint from now on- so send pictures- Wow. Did you take lessons? Or just born with it? That is so cool!

Also- the recent one you did- it looks so good- it looks like a painting from long ago by one of the famous painters- I don't know which one- because I don't know which one is which- but that's what it reminds me of- it's really cool.

Clay, very impressive. You are extremely gifted. You are not going to cut your ear off like Vincent van Gogh did are you?
