Road Show...

This year our stake held a road show in 1 day event. The youth gathered Friday night and divided into 10 groups and enjoyed brownie sundaes (we had about 160 youth come). On Saturday they arrived at 1 to write the script... practice... eat dinner together and at 7 it was show time. Matthew made his road show debut starring as a Mormon boy (he said it was very hard to get into character). He did a great job and his skit was cute. Megan was an angelic narrator... I guess she too was cast as her own real life person. Her skit was also darling. She and a group of friends also performed a great dance to I'm the King of New York from Newsies as an in-between-the-skits show.

The grand finale nearly did me in. Our Stake Young Womens Presidency performed Dancing Queen from Momma Mia. I am not a dancer and have never worn high heels... so combining these two factors was no small task. Luckily Anita, Merilee and Lenora are amazing women and stole the show and I managed to stay on my feet! So for your amusement here is a video clip...I must say that I owe a debt of gratitude to Diane as my silver pants and Lenora's silver shirt are straight from her closet, although they now belong to Jessie who inherited them. Diane, we miss your style!

Matthew's Marble Mania!

Tonight Matthew and I had a great time building a marble contraption... We were hoping to knock down the king, but were pleased when the marble made contact with the king.
