Last Week

Hi again!
So, last week was busy. (That statement is going to get old, so let's just assume that it is always busy around here. : ) ) So, we rehearsed Christmas Carol last week. It's going really well. I worked at Hunt Mysteries. That went well. I went to "Freaky Friday," which is where a bunch of us girls at the church get together and do crafts and stuff. I learned all about scrapbooking on the computer and I am totally jazzed. I really need to get caught up. Kent worked his head off at work and school, as usual. Zachary had his first band concert ever. It was a really cute "Halloween" themed concert. He played really well. The band director and all of the students came in concert. I tried to upload the video, but I'm still a little bit behind in all of these "new" features on the computer/internet. (hope I'm not alone on that : )) On Sunday, Brigham turned 5 years old. He had a nice day. Naquai and Michael's family came up for dinner and we listened to funny stuff on Naquai's mp3. I thought Kent was going to wet his pants. It was really funny. Brigham got a Batman/Joker action figure set. They both have little weapons that really shoot. He also got the Batmobile and Naquai and family gave him a light saber. He had a Yoda cake. He didn't go to bed until after Midnight. He told us, "I'm five, and it's my birthday, so I can stay up as long as I want!" We caved. Unfortunately, his runny nose has turned into a full blown cold today, so I guess that wasn't the best decision ever. Anyway, it was a fun week!

Theatre Bugs


So I started doing theatre in High School. I stopped after I got married. It took a lot of time, I was new to the area, I was having kids, etc., etc., etc. A couple of years ago I got up the nerve to audition for Seussical and the Terrace Plaza Playhouse up in Washington Terrace, UT, which is next to Ogden. I got in and I haven't stopped doing plays since. My middle son, Jaedon, loved Seussical and was sad that he didn't get to audition with me. So, the very next show I found with little kid parts, Babes in Toyland, I brought him to audition with me. He played "Little Boy Blue" and I played "Mother Goose." He was bitten by the theatre bug and now he's either hanging out at the theatre with me or doing a show. I talked my husband, Kent, into auditioning for My Fair Lady, he played the Hungarian linguist, Zoltan Karpathy. Now he's been bitten too. We're all three going to do Scrooge, A Christmas Carol this year together. My youngest, Brigham, is still a little bit small to come play with us, but probably by next year he'll be able to do it. He really wants to! Our oldest, Zachary, loves to watch theatre, which is good for the rest of us, because we need a good audience. Anyway, it's funny how one decision can inspire and create in others something they never knew was there. : )
