Beauty and the Beast

My good friend Amy Jo was performing as Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast. Brent and I decided to take Malia for an early birthday present. The show was amazing! The set was elaborate, the singing beautiful...we all loved it. Here is a picture with Gaston after the show:
The family with Amy Jo, she was amazing!

Brent insisted on getting a picture with the feather duster know the very demure, flirty one. I'm thinking that ms. feather duster lady is trying hard to force a smile here. I think she was ready to go home.

Belle and the Beast. It was a great day. Thanks mom for staying with the rest of the kiddo's.

Out of the mouth of babes

Today in my 5yr old sunday school class, a little boy said to me, "you have big lips, they look weird." I tried to explain to him in 5 year old language, that some ladies pay a lot of money to make their lips bigger. That big lips are beautiful." His reply...."they still look weird." 10 minutes later he told me my hair looked like snakes. Gotta love 5 year olds!

The Nightmare before Christmas

You would think that I would have learned my lesson by now. I mean, I have been alive for 30+ years. You would think that I would learn to NOT commit myself to something, until I know exactly what i'm committing too. Our little ward Christmas play has turned into the Nightmare before Christmas. I thought I was committing to a "Small" ward play..I would make a five minute appearance, say my lines and be done. Little did I know that this play would last for an hour, consist of 200+ lines (for me), include costumes and props and involve hours and hours of rehearsal. The real problem is we are NOT READY! Half of the people don't know their lines , we don't have costumes and i've yet to see any props. The show is in exactly a week from today. Yikes. Our sweet director has really tried so hard, I don't feel like she's getting the support she needs. But one things for sure, For those of you in the area, it should at least, uh shall we say...entertaining. I wouldn't mind so much if we just had the one performance for the ward Christmas party. But we are having two performances, the first one open to the public. I hope the public doesn't find out. This is the last time I volunteer for something without knowing
exactly what i'm getting myself into. I can't wait until this is over, so I can focus on other things. Wish us luck, we are going to need it.
