Christmas Break

Keeping with pig tradition, I bought new Piggy slippers right before the break. The kids loved to steal them and put them on-"So soft and fluffy Aunt Mel!"

Katie, Sage, and I also all got floating piggies for the bathtub from Santa-fun!

My face is not happy with me, I've done a number of conceptual makeup designs on my face trying to finalize the Jungle makeup for our upcoming production of Seussical.

In the old days, we would pull an old wheelbarrow around in the field-tons of fun! The snow was too deep so we just went up and down the driveway. Still fun but lacking some of the daring trill of the field.

I arranged some Christmas songs for Mom's set of play bells for our Nativity play.

Peter Pan Photos

Here's some photos from last week's dress rehearsal. Performances went Great 2 of the 3 last weekend; this weekend will be AMAZING all three!! I'll post more pictures from the actual performances when I have time to go through them!

What are your feelings for me?

Waiting for a kiss!

Taking Tiger Lily to Lagoon Rock

Hook wounded me, I can neither fly nor swim.

Tink told me to shoot the Wendy bird.

Do you want Tiger Lily's redskins to scalp you?

Pan Rehearsal

Here's more photos from rehearsing. Last week was a lot of sword fighting!!!

I made this arm glove for Hook's hook. Unfortunately, the plastic piece still doesn't fit over his hand. Back to the drawing board.

1st Two Weeks of Pan Rehearsal

After only 2 weeks we ran Act I yesterday (minus a few small parts). The kids are doing great! The nursery scene is a bit slow but we'll get it. Here's some photos of all the fun we've been having!

Hook Costume

These are for Jess and Mare to look at to see if they approve of Hook (imaging a wig and hat-plus a better hook!)

End of Summer Fun

Michael, Sherrie, the kids, and I went to Thanksgiving Point for $2.00 Tuesday this week. It was really hot but the gardens are really nice. The topper (especially for Christian) was the 50 cent ice cream cones they sold at the end!!

My brother David graduated from BYU last week with his PHD. I'm really proud of him. As I've watched him go through school the past few years he's really tried to spend time with his kids and wife by getting up really early to do homework. I'm not sure how he juggled it all. I'm also proud of Sherrie for all the times she had to be alone with the kids while David did homework. It's going to be nice for their family to have this degree done!

The skeletons of the Peter Pan sets are pretty much done. It's kind of hard to see detail because most everything is raw wood. Wait 'til we begin painting, wallpapering, etc!!!! The hardest part will be making everything move and change quickly. So cool that Dad and Michael were able to help me; the hard parts of the set are done and school hasn't even begun yet!




THING AT THE HELM (he made the wheel; it looks great!)

Peter Pan Sets

Dad, Michael, and I began building sets this week for Peter Pan. We've gotten a TON done in 3 days. There is still a bunch more to do, though. It's a complex, interchangeable set for 5 different locations (I have to be really creative because I don't have a fly system or much wing space.)

End of Day 1-Nursery

End of Day 2-Nursery

We've also build 3 Neverland trees, a slide, 2 beds (including a ship mast attachment), and a dog/Tinkerbell house.
