Crazin' for Mazin'!

As you all can see, it's that time of year again for tricking and treating for Halloween! From all those years of posting about my Corn Maze, I thought you would all like to see how I've done this year! You can all see that I still have the classical blow-ups, (especially the 14 ft ghost) and even some of the Halloween theme colors.

There is one thing I added to the display that's totally different. From my birthday last year, I received six strands of lights that have plastic jalepenios in colors of red, yellow, and green. I wasn't quite sure what holiday it would be to use them. Everyone told me that they would be for Cinco De Mayo. I wasn't quite sure how to decorate for Cinco De Mayo, since there's not much decorations in Utah, except of course Pinatas.

Anyway, I didn't decorate for Cinco De Mayo, because I thought it was enough when we celebrated it on Gamer's birthday when he's always in charge of the Pinatas and Bossy is always in charge of sorting all the candy from them into bags.

Things have always been crazy around the holidays, but everyone around the neighborhood have always been amazed to see how much I've done with the Corn Maze. On those weeks before Halloween, children would always stop by to try going through it. There were lots of those times when Trick-or-treaters have been just going up the sidewalk instead of going through the maze. I guess children have been taught by their parents that it's not polite to walk on people's lawns. But I want to tell the parents out there that at my house, it's an exception.

I remember those times when I put my display up on KSL, but I'm afraid they haven't done that again. I just wish lots of people around Utah would like to come see my display, because I've worked so hard to make it the best one out of everything around.

If you can plan accordingly on it, you can always come right on Halloween evening to trick-or-treat at the house, and please enter the maze, because that's all part of the fun with trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. Remember, the display isn't just made to look at, it's also made to explore the spooky wonders.

 I bet you're all crazin' for some mazin'!

Happy Halloween!

Guest Blog: Having Fun by Twizlet

I've never told you about guest blogging. It's when a person from a different perspective talks about their experience on someone else's blog as long as they give credit to the blogger. I've been both busy and distracted with a lot of things and I thought you would like to meet my niece, Twizlet. She was born just this year and I thought you would like to hear what she would like to say to you.

Hello, everyone!
My name is Twizlet. You probably remember me from the day I was born to Twiz and Teach.

I've been laying in everybody's arms for months and now look at me. I'm starting to crawl around looking at the world. I just wonder what all these things are that are right by me. Are they supposed to be fun or should I leave them alone?

Anyway, I'm just trying to be a good girl with my grandma and grandpa while my mommy and daddy are gone. I love everyone around me when they play with me and these fun looking things on the floor.

I really think that this family is great and I'm having fun with it. I haven't seen all the  fun things yet, but I bet knocking over this tower will cause a ruckus!

Right now, I just want to ask my mommy and daddy what I can be for Halloween...whatever that is.

Bye bye!

Labor Day Weekend

I thought it was just recently since I blogged on here, but I feel like wanting to tell you, because my Mom and Dad are leaving to go back East for their 34th wedding anniversary during Labor Day Weekend, while Drama Queen and I are in charge of helping the children while they're gone for a few days. It's going to be quite a challenge, because, it's been a while since either Drama Queen or I have baby sat children while the more mature adults are out for a day or two. That might be part of experiencing Labor Day, other than we like watching the Newsies movie every year. It always teaches us about how people have made a difference in the 19th century of employment.

And speaking of employment, I've been working at Walmart over a year and I'm just enjoying about having the opportunity to have some vacation from it, especially when it comes to falling in love with the Cat Lover. She and I don't have to work on Labor Day, so that gives us a chance to spend a day together. Lots of people in the family think that the Cat Lover and I would be a perfect couple to be together, but we haven't had our first kiss yet, so we're just going to have to wait and see how that goes. I like to explain a little more about it, but that can be saved for next time. Right now, we're just going to stick with what we're going to face for the weekend. I hope you all have a good Labor Day weekend. :)

I just want to show you some annotated videos I made that might have to do with Labor and to see if these people would either need a vacation or a day off of work or maybe change a different career path. This is another thing I have been learning to become a teacher for elementary students.

Halloween Costumes

I know this may sound strange to talk about at this time, but I just want to be a bit prepared to have suggestions before the upcoming holidays are coming no matter when or what. Do you remember those years when I tried to come up with lots of things of what I wanted to be for Halloween. Well, there had been lots of inspirations that have occurred throughout the years. It all started to happen ever since I served my mission. I never thought about coming up with clever ideas of costumes to wear in my life that remind me of some things.

You probably remember the time when I was dressed like a Sleepwalker, because it reminded me of my blog name that could be changed a bit for a day. The way I made it was with a pillow tied behind my head with a small fleece blanket as a cape and I wear my pajamas. Some people thought I was a bed when I tried to tell them that I was just a sleepwalker. It was in 2014 when I was dressed like the sleepwalker.

Around 2015, when the new Disney and Pixar movie Inside Out came out, some of us wanted to dress up like the characters from it. I was the only one dressed up like Bing Bong while Teach was dressed like Joy, Baby Doll was dressed like Sadness, and Drama Queen was technically dressed like Disgust. We enjoyed the movie, because we thought we could dress up like funny characters from the most lovable movies.
Last year, of 2016, I started to enjoy the musical called Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, especially watching the Donny Osmond movie. During a service project at an elementary school, my sisters found an old multicolored balloon in a garbage can and decided that we should keep it for use. I convince my mother that we should turn it into the coat of many colors from the musical. She was a bit hesitant about that, but after seeing the movie, she quite agreed and loved it so much.

Now, for this Halloween of this year, I'm working on a different costume that I thought would be clever. I didn't come up with it myself in the first place, but I found out about it from a Studio C skit that they did. I bought these two clocks from Walmart and turned them into the Daylight Saving time zones. In the video they have two people being the Daylight Saving Twins. I thought that was really clever. I figured since Princess and Crafty were alike, I thought that would be good costumes for them, but everyone suggested to me that I should try being it myself. The way I made these clocks wasn't an easy way, but it does work, the clock hands even move around time.

Throughout this process, I'm still trying to figure out more ideas that can be added to this costume idea for Halloween. I just want to ask if any of you have any suggestions that I can use to make it the best costume that I have ever made in my life.I hope that you enjoyed this and hope that things can work out before October. :)

Future Classroom Project

I know it's been a long time since I got to blog here. It's just things have been crazy ever since. I've been at Walmart and I just recently got a girlfriend from all this time I thought I wouldn't have one. But things have been working out ever since. Right now I'm just trying to see if this girlfriend of mine would be my future spouse. And speaking of future, I just wanted to ask a simple question: Have you always like coming up with a clever idea that would work for a future classroom? Well, as you can see, I have a bunch of clocks hung up on my bedroom wall. I bought twelve little clocks and one big clock. Ever since I made the daylight saving clocks, I thought it would be a fun way for a future classroom decoration for young children to see. I thought that the little clocks could be the months and that the big one would be the whole year clock. It took me about a whole week just to complete this entire project, but it was quite fun to come up with this idea for a future classroom as an elementary teacher. However, I just need to find out if that it would be okay to use all these clocks in my classroom someday and use an open circular Frisbee big enough to go around the clock so that the children would know which month it is. If any of you followers are teachers out there who teach elementary teacher, I just want to know if this idea would be okay and if it's ethical to use for a classroom. I worked so hard to make these and I want it to be a fun way for children to learn about the months of the year and to help them know what month it is. I even took individual pictures of each clock for you to see up close. I hope you like the way I made them. :) If you think this idea is okay for a future classroom, then I appreciate it. Then, I might come up with another unique project that can be added to my future classroom. I'm pretty sure that you can already tell what the other project would be for my future classroom.

Famous Mormons

It's been a while since I got to blog. I've just been busy with working at Walmart and attending a semester of college. But I thought I would give you something that might sound interesting. Do you remember the time when I had an anxious life of wanting to be famous and learning from Mom and Dad about the consequences of it? Well, I just wanted to point out that there are famous people who are Mormons and have made a difference in their lives. I won't explain all of the details of them, but I could just tell you one unique thing about their fame. 

This is David Archuleta. He's best known as a famous singer for bringing spiritual moments to everybody in our world. He even sung Glorious for the Meet the Mormons documentary.

This is Alex Boyé. He's been known for singing a lot of songs, just like David Archuletta, but more likely singing a lot of African chants.

This is Donny Osmond. He's been known as a handsome singer as well as for playing the modern role, Joseph from the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

This is Gladys Knight.She's a former Baptist, but joined the church after teasing Gordon B. Hinkley about adding pop to the Church music.She's better known as the Empress of Soul.

This is Jon Heder. He's better known as the main character of the same name of the film Napoleon Dynamite.

This is Lindsey Stirling. She's better known as a dancing violinist. She's been an inspiration to all the world that anybody can show off their different talent, just like her.

This is Paul Cardall. He's best known for being a talented and a very-well clever pianist. He's played mostly hymns, but has made other music for LDS movies, like Ephraim's Rescue.

This is Stephenie Meyer. She's best known as the author of the Twilight Saga. A lot of readers have found her chapter books really unique and clever of life being the other perspective.

This is Shawn Bradley. He's best known as the seven foot NBA player. A lot of people consider him being the tallest man in the world.

These are the Piano Guys. They're best known as the band who come up with unique and very jazzy piano sounds to music. They even made a Cameo appearance in the remake movie Saturday's Warrior.

This is Studio C. They are the cast members of the TV show under the same name. They love to come up with funny and clean humor to make everyone laugh and smile.

This is Ken Sansom. He was an actor throughout the children's shows. He was best known for playing the voice of Rabbit in the Winnie the Pooh franchise. He died in 2012 from a stroke, but he has been an inspiration to everyone around him.

So all of this brings to me that I sometimes like to be like these famous Mormons, but not literally gain so much fame like they did, but to be an inspiration to everybody around me, just like them. I hope you enjoyed it and hope you want to learn more about them.
