Dad's funny email

I don't think Dad gets online to post anymore so I thought I'd post this hilarious email that he sent out. This is it below:

The other day I said something to Grandma about me getting old. The conversation went something like this:

G'ma: How old are you?
G: 52
G'ma: How old?
G: 52...old, huh?
G'ma: Yeah, that's old.
G: Yup, I'm going to be looking for a room here in a couple of weeks.
G'ma: How old am I?
G: 87 <--(is that right?)
G'ma: (Laughing) How old?
G: 87
G'ma: Wow, that's old. I'm ready to go out that door. How old?
G: 87, you're a spring chicken
G'ma: I don't feel like a spring chicken, I'm ready to go out that door.(chuckling) I can't believe you're 87. That's old.
G: I'm only 52, don't rush me.
G'ma: How old am I?
G: 87
G'ma: No, you can't be 87.
G: No I'm 52
This goes on for a while.
G'ma: How old am I?
G: 87
G'ma: You can't be 87.
G: No, only 52.
G'ma: How old are you?
G: 87
G'ma: I feel old, but you don't look like you could be 87.
G: Well, I don't wear it as gracefully as you.

Today, I think she was right.

I Have An Equestrian...

For anybody,
Do you remember those little clay Nativity Scenes we made and painted a long time ago with the Longs? Well, I really want to do those with Kelly, Lisa and Jami Hathaway. Is the salt clay recipe Shayla gave me the one we used; where you mix flour salt and something else and knead it for 10 min then afterwards bake it for an hour, then paint them? Also, what kind of paint did we use?

Another equestrian...How do you make that yummy Lemon, Chicken and Rice?

Anyway, thanks fo your help and P.S. This is the LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!! (besides finals)

Picturing Eden

My friend had to do a paper on a painting, and while we were in the neighborhood I wanted to check out the photography exhibit. it..... was... aaaawesome, but sorry about your car man. this was one that caught my eye, it was so cool it's kind of a bad scan but the green was just so vibrant and awesome!!!

Thursday, November 15, 2007


Is anybody there? Cause I look every day waiting to read from other people's comments but nobody posts...or even comments. I'm stuck here in itty bitty Ephraim as you as my only contact with the outside world. Help me out people!! Just kidding, but I would like to read other people's things too :)

Oh and just so you know, I am officially a pre-FCHD major (family, consumer, and human development). My advisor wasn't much help so I basically have to figure things out for myself; but maybe that's better. Anyway, thought I'd let you all know...this is my LAST major change (cause after this, it would be extremely difficult :))

well the concert was great!!!! she is so beautiful and such a cool girl, she is so down to earth someone made a picture album of her of all the shows he had been to. she called him a freak, and she brought him on stage and took a pic with him she is so down to earth and puts on a really good show!!! I can't wait for the new album to come out with no doubt.

p.s. I don't know why it cut off the other pic but it is even better than that one oh well lol

and P.P.S. the guy that sung that part (mom) in the song threw a twelve year old off the stage into the crowd because he threw a t-shirt at him. (Akon) I liked him till he did that lol wierdo

I did this as a comment but decided to put it up here........ whatever!

hip hop, hip hop anonymous

So Gwen Stefani decided to donate all the ticket sales to the wild fire relief fund and she also opened up the rest of her tix for $10.00 so we ran and got some tickets and went. the seats were not that bad, but she came running out into the crowd during one of her songs and I got three rows from her it was so cool she is a really cool girl. she also announced that she is going to be releasing another no doubt CD next year. No Doubt always reminds me of Shayla's pink bedroom when I listed to it every night prob for a year lol.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Thursday, October 18, 2007

Pretty Much the BEST Movies EVER!!!!

These are the best of the best, that I can think of off hand I'm sure there are others that I am forgetting. And, these are in no particular order.

Mask of Zorro
Count of Monte Cristo
Man in the Iron Mask
Conspiracy Theory
Second Hand Lions
While You Were Sleeping
True Grit
Big Jake
Open Range
All three Bourne Movies (Of course I haven't seen the third one yet, it just has to be good.)
The Italian Job
Don't Shoot the Sherriff
Operation Petticoat
The Hunt for Red October
Raiders of the Lost Arc
Star Wars
Romancing the Stone
The Sandlot
Remember the Titans

A Scary Experience!!!

So today I was getting ready for work, standing in the bathroom, when I heard the most spine tingling, hair raising sound I had ever heard! My mind quickly went through all of my bad experiences as I tried to identify the horrifying sound. My first thought was that it was Puppy snorting at the door. Only, he must have gotten into Mom's athletic performance enhancing steroids as this was a much huskier snorting than I had heard from him before. How was I going to get out of the bathroom with this ravenous, blood-thirsty monster of a dog snorting at the door? I hope Lexie had her door closed, or had Puppy already torn her to shreds and was now in a blood enhanced rage? Then, as my mind raced and the calmer me took over, I decided that I would just have to crawl out the window and take my chances jumping to the cement.

As I got closer to the window, I could hear the sound coming from outside. OH NO, the White's new dogs had gotten into Mom's steroids, too! What to do, what to do? Could this really be happening? Or, had I just seen too many commercials for the Alfred Hitchcock movies?

Back to the problem at hand. If I jump out the window.....wait a minute, the van is in the driveway. I could just jump to the top of the van and those two short little dogs would never reach me up there, or would they? OK, I'll wait for Mom to go out and try to get in the van.....those two monsters will be distracted while they rip Mom to shreds.....I can jump on the van, jump over to the truck, jump over the fence and run over to Mel's. Surely he has had experience with nasty monsters such as these. If nothing else, icy-milk will slow the beasts down.

With every snort, the panic sets in deeper and deeper. This sound.....I know I've heard it somewhere. If I could only remember where, maybe I could figure out how to escape. Was it in a dream? Was it in a movie? What is the best weapon to use? If it was in a movie, I'm sure that they found some kind of weapon to battle the brute strength of a Puppy mad on steroids.

The sound is getting worse and worse, I grab my head as it throbs with each snort. I can't take it any more!!! I throw open the window and start to climb out. I survey the ground below so as to decide my best avenue of escape.....when.....when.....OH NO, IT'S WORSE THAN I HAD IMAGINED IT COULD BE!!!! IT WAS SUCH A HIDEOUS SIGHT.....WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT? WILL THIS NIGHTMARE EVER END?

Oh.....Ughhh.....Ummm, Hi Elaine.....having fun scraping the windshield? Have a fun day at work.

4. Sense and Sensibility
5.The Kid
6.Emporer's new Groove
7. Man in the Iron Mask
8. A League of their Own

Friday, October 5, 2007

This is so fun!!

I don't know anything about blogging! You will have to tell me if this goes through like it should. I can't wait for conference weekend starting tomorrow!! The best weekend of the year!! I am wanting to have a birthday dinner for Chelsea and Cory on Sunday after the second session of conference. Actually I think that Cory has a dinner with Botts so we will celebrate another time. BY THE WAY . . . . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO CORY - TODAY!!!

We will have our girls night out during Priesthood session on Saturday and our big yummy breakfast on Sunday morning. How about Red Lobster?!?!?!? Or, as you know, I like to eat anywhere. I also have coupons to Sizzler for steak and salad bar (wow . . . . am I hungry).

Thanks for starting this Shayla. I hope I can figure it out.

Thoughts on Grandpa

Hi All,

Here's a picture Marlo sent of Grandpa's funeral. I thought it was a very nice funeral, and I thought it'd be fun to share some things we remember about Grandpa. What do you guys remember about him? I remember some different things because I am the oldest, but my favorite is that he always called me Chela, and when he and grandma got back from Hawaii they brought us grass skirts and grandpa showed us how to hula dance. I wish I had that on video!



Hey Chels, Did you make a blog for tyson and yourself? I want to see... Send us the link por favor. SB

Friday, September 21, 2007

Lookin' good!!

Hey someone changed our pic!! Nice one... I like. I need to get a copy of all the pictures we had taken. Mom do you have that on CD?

Wednesday, September 19, 2007


Hi all,

So I made it so that only the authors (aka us) can see the blog, so because of that, we can talk about whatever we want (including the new addition!) I put on a timeline for the baby so you all can see when he (as Cory says) is coming!!

Hope you have a good day!

A day in the life of Cory and Shayla

Hi Everyone,

I thought it'd be fun to start our new blog with a day in the life of everyone in the family. What do you do from sunup to sundown? I'll start with mine and Cory's.
We wake up about 6:00 everyday and get going early. I head off to school, or go for an hour walk and then head off to school (depending on the day), and Cory starts making his rounds to the contractors and running errands. His phone normally starts ringing at about 6:30 am and doesn't stop until about 6:30 pm... which is awesome because he really loves cell phones! ;) I teach my music for ballet dancers class on tuesday and thursdays, then I take a ballet class and then teach my ballet technique class at 11:30. On monday wednesday fridays, I take a music theory class at UVSC, then I take a ballet class, and teach my technique and pointe classes. I'm done pretty early in the afternoon, but still have a lot of prep time. I am teaching Dance as an Art Form- a general requirement for fine arts- next semester so I'm trying to get ready for that!

Cory loves his job and has been extremely successful at it. He just landed a major account which is great for us! :) He has been into catfishing lately and caught some gigantic ones on Utah Lake a few weeks ago with his Dad. He marinated and grilled them for us and they were pretty much the best fish I have ever tasted (I know all you fish-haters don't think there could be such a thing, but there is...) When he gets home, he relaxes for awhile and then he goes into the office, where he doesn't return for many hours. He has a busy school load this semester, and his math class especially requires a lot of work everyday.
I'm performing for the last time this weekend, and we are moving (again, unfortunately) this weekend as well, so this should be a fun week!
Can't wait to hear what you all do everyday and see some great pics!

Hello All!!

Welcome to the new Billings Family Blog. Since we are so scattered now, I thought it'd be fun to keep in touch by doing the blog thing! You all are listed as authors, so all of you can post whenever you want, whatever you want! Let's keep in touch!
