Last few weeks before school....

Our family was asked to sing in the ward chili cookoff.  They sang "ghost riders in the sky". The bishop's face is cute.

Becket on the other hand or should I say foot? He has been growing like a weed and has almost reached my height and has surpassed my foot size.

Micah has been not looking forward to her piano recital, but she made it through just fine.

Untitled

She has also been working hard to finish her Egyptian report for class.

Untitled

She even interviewed my neighbor, Susan Stevens, who has visited that far away land for some additional facts.

Volleyball wrapped up and we now have our Saturdays back!

Becket is preparing for summer by practicing his TV watching skills.  Don't know why he has the oven mitts, but he's Becket and kind of stays cool that way.

Foo sits on me anyway he can.  Doesn't matter what position I am in, he will find a way. I will pretend to be annoyed, but I secretly love it.

Cub Chorus concert done. I barely captured a shot of Micah's group performance with the orchestra before she dashed off the stage.

The girls completed their play for drama.  Micah was Sally and Gretchen was Snoopy for  their Charlie Brown play.

Gretchen made us proud by cleaning house at the awards assembly.  She was awarded 4 awards, including the highest honor for top student and a fifty dollar scholarship. She decided to look smarter by accessorizing with my glasses.

Annual shaving cream fight after school.

Gone are my quiet regular boring days, and hello fun summer days with the kids!

That's if we have enough energy!

Disneyland Isn't the Happiest Place on Earth, BUT the Kids Had Fun

I've never been to Disneyland and I'm ashamed to say my name is Micki.  Crazy the way people talk about it and get season passes when they are light years away.  We got invited to go over spring break with the Labrums. Jenny Labrum happens to be a Disneyland lover and she knows what she is doing so I booked it. It was just us and our kids and that made Mat more than happy to pay for it.  I think everyone and their dog was there to wait in line and pay for overpriced food.

Here's a recap:

Jedi Training

Gretchen's face was like this in all the rides. Well worth the money.

Not kidding

Mater eats your face off

Mary Poppin's wannabe

Weather forecast did not call for rain, but we made it work with a quick stop at Target.

Untitled

Light show was cool.

Untitled

And we're tired

A few souvenirs

Major projectile vomit on the way home.  Total hose down at a gas station and we were good to go.
