Spring Performance

Whew, we had three performances this year; two in Ephrata and one in Quincy. This is the entry table, photo gallery and programs for "Sleeping Beauty". I enjoy putting this together each year.

I usually don't get backstage photo's, but there was a slight break in activity and I snapped a couple. The costumes were really pretty. (no, I didn't make these).

Remember four years ago when I was making all those fairy wings? I was so glad not to have to do them again this year. This dancer (pink fairy) is a senior and it is her last performance with us.
The dancer sitting on the table (below) is wearing my "Blue Bird" overlay costume. The other costumes are purchased.

Bubbles at Grammie's House

I think I missed a lot when I raised my children. I found it so interesting to watch these two and their bubble-blowing styles. Jacob carefully blows the biggest and the most bubbles he can...doesn't spill and is pretty focused. Aleigha hardly stops long enough to blow...she likes to chase Jacob's bubbles and tries to catch them, spilling most of hers in the process. However, when she ran out of liquid, Jacob gave her some of his. Of course he would then move fast to catch the bubbles she was after and annoy her to no end. Aleigha was so proud of herself when she would finally catch one and wanted everyone to see what she had done.

It made me think of when I was the little sister trying to do things my big brother did, and never being able to do it quite as well. He would share with me though. That doesn't mean he didn't tease me every chance he got ,which was frustrating to deal with. But...I could always tell on him!!!! And I did!!! Sometimes even exaggerating a little!!! Hee Hee!

Another Update

FINALLY...I can upload a picture and post again.

Phil has the roof on the tool shed finished and the siding on the front, but I don't have a picture of that yet. This one is for you Terri, since you made a special request for an update. Thanks go to Jon for working on my computer today.

Still Here

Even though no postings have been seen, I have been trying. Just encountered a problem that won't let me upload and post pictures. Teresa, maybe you might try it on your end.
