So Landon has begun to watch alittle Sesame Street but his favorite is Mickey Mouse in the morning. At the end of the show they sing and dance what I call the "hot dog diggity dog" dance. He starts dancing and it is hilarious to watch him get into it. I never can catch him dancing because the camera is always downstairs on the dock and the time I go downstairs and get the camera and get back up he is usually done dancing. So the other morning I went and got the camera when the show started to I would be prepared to catch him when he started dancing at the end of the show.
So this is him dancing the "hot dog diggity dog"
This is one of those times grandma loves to babysit......
Just ignore my voice I didn't know I had said anything till I was reviewing it....
sorry for the interruption.

I cleaned up the glass and put it in the new clock,
put some batteries in it and set the time and
she looked good as NEW:)
By the way Shauna just loved her clock
I got "No way this is one of those cool clocks" as she was unwrapping it.
$3.99 original cost, $2.00 for old clock/glass = $5.99 total cost.

- Ones that you can use next to insulation
- Ones that you can install in the kitchen without going up into the attic.
- How to take out the metal plate inside the fixture so its easier to install the light
4. How to pick out the face plate that goes around the fixture, with the ones easier to replace the light when needed.
So Scott used his Roto tool to cut out the drywall circles (with a handy circle guide I purchased for him last year), then he measured out the wiring to each of the holes and cut it to each length he wanted. He then wired nutted them together, then we placed the fixture up inside the ceiling, completing all 4 holes. Where the wires came out from the old light fixture, we capped it with a metal plate (according to code).
We then proceeded to drywall patch the holes where the old fixture hung from.
Then I took the drywall mud added alittle water to thin it out alittle and then took a plastic grocery sack wrinkled it up and then dipped it into the mud and blodded the ceiling in to match the rest of the ceiling. When the mud was almost dry, I then took a putty knife and flattened the spikes. (That is how I textured the ceiling a few years ago, now I learned they have a ceiling brush that does the work in half the time)
I then painted 3 coats over the old area until it all matched, I think it looks pretty good if I say so myself.
Then we put in the flood lights (65 watts), we used the ones with the reflective mirror looking stuff on the outside instead of the soft white surface. The reflective light puts out alot more light (makes it brighter) you can use the soft white if you want it more softer lighting. I like lots of light while cooking.
(see my window shutters I mentioned in my last post)

The demolition part ....YEAH!!!
The finished kitchen
Can I say I just love the white cabinets it seems so bright in the kitchen, after
the dark cabinets and countertop.
No more vinyl flooring, I now have nice laminated wood flooring to give it alittle
The backsplash....what can I say I love it also!!!!... even if it took me several trips to
Home Depot, several trips to Salt Lake to check out other tile stores.
You can click on the pictures and they will enlarge and then just click back to go back to the post.
You can read all the posts I posted during the remodel if you go to 2010 posts,
then click on May and that should bring all of them up for you.

If you look closely it looks like a man's head, with his
hair, nose and eyes. Then off the left it looks like Elvis with
a spikey haired guy also.
Then we went to Francis, where we use to go snowmobiling all winter long,
except during February when we use to go to West Yellowstone and spend
There wasn't as many snowmobilers as we thought, maybe because
it was only 18 degree's.
I did take this picture of a bridge that you can ride your snowmobiles over to a place
call Soapstone. It was a picture perfect moment to take a picture and put on my
