Act 4; Scene 5: White Christmas

Is it a bit early to be thinking about Christmas?

Well, not around here!

Last week I started my first rehearsals for the Lehi Arts production of "White Christmas" the Broadway Musical.

I was cast as a dancer (what?!?!)/ensemble member, as well as Mrs. Snoring Man.

If you remember the movie with Bing Crosby, Danny Kay, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen you might remember the song "Snow" that they all sing in the train on the way to Vermont. Well, in the Broadway version Bob (Bing) and Betty (Rosemary) are pouting and so a couple (Mr. Snoring man and his wife) sing the song "Snow" with Phil (Danny) and Judy (Vera). 

This just happens to be one of my favorite songs in the show, and I am ecstatic that I get to sing the other women's part in it!

One of those lovely ladies near the center will be me!

This is also one of the reasons I have not been posting much lately. Our lives have just become very busy! I will try to keep you updated with fun from the show and fun from our lives.

Happy Monday!

And almost October!!!!!

Act 4; Scene 4: Favorite Game

This afternoon we were able to catch on film one of Tommy's favorite games.

Opening and closing doors.

Especially our bedroom closet door.

He does often shut the door all the way and get stuck, and then start screaming.

It's kind of hilarious.

And yes, as you can see, he is walking. Just this weekend it really took off--today at church he walked ALL OVER the cultural hall during Sunday School.

We are overdue on posting a video of the walking, because we haven't been able to capture a good one yet. But here is an ok one: 

And that about wraps it up for now.

Too busy prepping for my favorite month to write more now!

Happy Sunday!

Act 4; Scene 3: A Few Fun Things From Around Here

Fun thing #1:

My new Thanksgiving Point Pass

He loves loves loves the splash pad

The sand box at the Garden was a hit

His swimming trunks were a little too wet to wear...
These pictures were taken at the children's discovery garden. We've also had fun feeding the goats and riding the ponies at farm land, and exploring the dinosaurs at the museum. 

Fun Thing #2:
I'm a little late on this, but it's college football season! Robert's fantasy football team won their first match, so we're off to a good start. We also have this decoration adorning our porch:

Go Blue!

Fun Thing #3:
Tommy recently discovered a new toy in his old car seat. Here is what we caught him doing yesterday morning:

And there you have it! Hope you have a great Wednesday.
