About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Some Enchanted Evening

   The play was a huge success!  Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes, my dear, dear friends...
    Can you see Katie the Oyster?:)  She is second from the right on the bottom row.  They are getting ready to be eaten by the Walrus!  Ack!  I truly don't remember much about the walrus from the movie, but it was cute, just the same...

   "Alice" and "The Queen of Hearts"...

   Mandy- all alone on the stage....  Oh my stars!  Oh my ears and whiskers!- as the Rabbit would say...

   Some of the cute little oysters...

   Mandy, backstage waiting for the second act to start.  You know I had to sneak back there and take a peek!:)

   Mandy and her best friend...

   Caught in a reverie...

   I was a huge ball of stress, but when the lights went down I was able to sit back and enjoy.  It was a lovely evening and I wish you all could have been there to share it with us...

Oh Lori,
Amanda made a perfect Alice!!!! Katie and her friends were just as cute as can be too!

Amanda looked like she was far less nervous then you! I bet you guys are so proud of her, I'm so proud of her~ I so wish I could have been there, I would have given her a standing ovation!

Tell her I said, "Great Job!-We are very impressed with her talent over here in Washington!"

Hi Lori
Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures of the show. I agree with Robin that Amanda made the most perfect Alice. Katie was the cutest oyster I have ever seen. It must have been an amazing night and one that you will all remember forever. Jessica and I would love to have been there to watch and support them both. You must be the proudest Mom and rightly so.

I love the little clam outfits! I have never read or seen Alice in Wonderland. I did see a little clip of the clams this week when I turned on the TV to record something.

How exciting that Mandy go to be Alice :0}
