Beauty & the Beast

I just wanted to take a minute to share what Anthony has been doing lately. February till the end of April we didn't see much of him. We survived and happily we were able to watch the fruits of his labors. He played Lafou in our Stake production of Beauty and the Beast. When I watched the opening show I was so impressed that I called his Mom and told her she HAD to come and see this for herself because otherwise she wouldn't believe it. I snuck her into town for the closing performance and Anthony had no idea till he looked down and recognized her sitting with us in the front row! It was priceless! The show was amazing and I was so happy that he got to be a part of it. Now for the best part... the pictures of course :-)

"How can you even read these things, there are no pictures"

"awhh not the woods, I hate the woods"
"ha ha finders keepers"

"My what a guy, GA - STON"

some adoring fans

ruffles and makeup, who would have thought?

"thanks Mom for coming"

Ok Anthony, could you do my makeup next time cuz I look pasty compared to you!
signing autographs... how cool is that?

Hoppin' down the Bunny Trail

Yes, I am one of those moms that still loves to color Easter eggs. Give me my own dozen and I am entertained for hours.

I was so flattered when Kira said this was her favorite egg that she had colored.

Can you tell I have a smitten teenager that lives at my house?

" Would you hurry up already, so I can get back to my chocolate."

I love the little hint of color in the middle of the sandwich. That just makes it a perfect "Easter egg salad sandwich".

"Hi my name is Kali, and I have been texting for 23 months now...."

Yes that really is a Mac that he's working on.

Diabetes knows no holidays. This is before every meal for the rest of her life.

Even though she thinks I'm a dork for taking pictures of her "testing her blood sugar", I have to say Kira is such a champ for letting me do it anyway.

Can you see the beginnings of sideburns? He is getting in character for being Lefou in the play Beauty and the Beast.

Not long till graduation.

Kyle's hair was so long that people started asking him if he was trying to look like Edward... but not being a twilight fan, he wasn't sure that was much of a complement.

It has been way to long since I have posted. And it's not that there hasn't been anything blog-worthy. Sometimes life just has a way of making you get back to the basics. Then when you have the basics down you can slowly start adding other stuff back into your life. I think I'm ready to blog again. Hope you all had a fantastic Easter. I have missed you guys. :-)
