Sibling Photo Shoot

One of the reasons I'm not entirely sane any more is
the attempting of a sibling photo shoot.

Can anyone else out there relate to the following?


This attempt number 31…..

Thankfully we did get one good one.  Did you get that?  ONE
I now have a nervous tic, but it's done.

Jonathan's Birthday

So, being a little behind doesn't even come close to adequately
describing where I am right now…totally overwhelmed probably
comes a bit closer.    For the first time I wasn't even able to get a 
birthday post done in a reasonable time.  Blah!!!!

It is no less significant though!
Jonathan had a great 21st birthday and we
were all able to celebrate  together on the Sunday following.


A team effort got all 21 candles lit before the wax
started dripping and ….


…being a good brass player, Jonathan blew them
all out and also blew a considerable amount of wax 
on the top of his pie :)

Happy 21st birthday Jonathan!!!
We love you!

Costume Recital Prep

The ladies have a costume recital each fall in their studio
which the students seem to really enjoy.  This year, however,
it was requested that the teachers join in and wear costumes too.
This instantly meant that Miss Emily would have some more
work to do :)


Emily is the one who made all the costumes.


Here, she is getting close to finishing Kristin's.


They all turned out well and I'm sure she's thankful to
have the job complete!
