And the Games have Begun!


I love watching the Olympics! There is something about watching people live their childhood dream! I love the national anthems that play as the winners proudly display their medals!

Did you know that the emblem "dancing Beijing" represents the "hospitality and hopes of China"? To further your Beijing knowledge go here...

Here are some "Light the Fire Within" Memories....

I must admit I think my mom got me the funeral potato and green jello pin!


A neat memory...Our Beloved President Hinckley!




I remember everyone kept saying how friendly and nice Utahns were, and there was just this spirit here... that everyone could feel. There sure is!

I love the Olympics, too! Maybe not as much as Brian, though. He gets up at 6 am to watch Team USA Basketball!

Kaija, I'm a loser I only watched 5 minutes of the olympics. I know I usually enjoy them I just don't have the time. What a loser!
