Violet and silver… certainly not traditional

Just squirt it on and swirl it around. How easy is that? I like to layer the color. Apply one, swirl it around, and then add the other color on top for a detail.

KHS High School Musical is almost at a close and it’s on to the next Musical Event. Every year for Christmas the KHS Chamber Choir assisted by the Concert Choir, Women’s Bel~Canto, and the Men’s Testostertones (new this year) put on a beautiful Musical Renaissance Feast. The Chamber Choir dresses to the nines for this event. This will be Zach’s last year to participate and he asked that I make his costume for this year’s festivities. What you see here is a deconstructed suit, fur coat, and blouse (all purchased at Saver’s Thrift Store) soon to be a Renaissance Costume Extraordinaire… at least I hope so. Sure hope Zach likes it… did I mention picky, picky, PICKY boy. This is obviously a very rough start… There is much, much, much sewing yet to be done.
On to the beginnings of a fun Christmas Tablescape…
Certainly not traditional… but, I had so much fun working on it.
The Hurricane in the center of the wreath above was just a plain Jane cheapo hurricane. I purchased Gold and Silver DecoArt Craft Twinkles Writer that is designed to turn glass into stained art. I love, love, LOVE!!! the final results. I also took two burned up trumpet jar candles and did the same thing for each side of the center piece… so much fun… I may have painted a few other glass pieces as well… I can’t stop… I’m thinking early Christmas Gifts maybe.
More pictures of the finished projects to follow. Wish me Luck!

Alex is motion… just look at him go. I wish I had a better picture of him and Mignonne (lower right pic) doing the tango. They rocked it big time! He did an amazing lift… made his momma and dad sooooo proud. He looks pretty studdly all the same and isn’t she just gorgeous!?!
Here are just a few more pictures of my Baby boy acting. If you know Alex at all you know that this was totally out of his comfort zone. He’s always been our quiet child. He’s a sit back and watch kinda child… much like his dad. Well he sure came out of his shell for this production. It was a lot of hard work and we truly are proud of his efforts. The lower right shot is an after production shot of Alex and Keri (his heart-throb). Alex was pretty pumped and acting silly. I loved it!
I couldn’t resist putting this picture all by its lonesome… just look at him holding off this crowd of girls… no really he was holding them all up. Isn’t he strong… and Handsome!!! Oh, his Keri is the pretty blonde in the yellow skirt in the middle of the picture.

…a Trick or Treating Pail could be so much fun?
Do you see the twinkle? Do you see the sparkle?
Momma is so patient and loving.
She has the prettiest smile around… even with a pail on her head.
Ashelyn thought she was so cute!
hmmmm…. Who should be next???
Can you see Me? I can see You!!!
Peek a Boo!!! How Do You Do?
I think it’s Bubba’s turn… don’t you?
No really… it won’t hurt at all… just try it!
See isn’t it cool? I sure think so!
Well… I guess I’ll humor sissy!
Yup! She’s right! It is sooooo fun!
Now… Wasn’t that just the funniest night ever?!?

So I found this uber awesome photo of Brent’s family from around 1976. Love, love, love the do’s, get ups, and especially dad’s muttonchops. Pretty much it is the best picture ever. I scanned this from a little button… It scanned great, gotta love the Picasa. We think Bj was around 12 in this photo. Wasn’t he just a cutie pie?

So I was thinking… It’s been over a year since I messed with my hair… That is way too long for me! Time for a new do.
Really, the only thing I changed was the color. I went with Red-Oak… just so you know, the color turned out totally different than the sample looked. Oh well, that’s what you get when you color your hair yourself. Lucky for me, I kinda like it.
I went shopping last weekend and picked up this dress, shirt, skirt thingee I have on in the photo above. The boys told me to wear it as pictured… I thought I better get a picture so I can see how I look before I venture out in to the public. Thank goodness! That is just way too much leg showing for someone with old chubby knees. It would maybe look cute with the right pair of jeans under it, but that is even debatable. I removed the straps and wore it as a skirt with a sweater over the t-shirt… mucho better… what do you think of my photography? I had to use the timer…please pay no attention to the snarl in the second picture… I snarl sometimes, what can I say? I’ll try it again another time. Misty is way better at the self photography… she has that uber long reach and the perfect smile every time… oh well that’s life.

I love, love, love these reflection shots of the little ones. Ashelyn came over to visit with Grandma and Grandpa on Saturday morning with Momma, while Daddy and Gideon were working on things for the big Party. I thought she looked so very pretty in her purple and black, I couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures.

Here is our sweet little Lady Bug and our super sweet Bumble Bee. They hit the candy before the little hob-goblins showed up. The whole Doan Gang and extended family that live in the KC area met at Misty’s and Jakes for a little chili goodness and some trick or treating fun.
Here is the whole hee haw gang. It was hard to get them to stand still for a picture. You can see that the little ones are all looking in different directions. They were all so cute in their costumes. Check out Jason in his Gnome suit. How cute is he?
Bj couldn’t resist an opportunity to dress up and scare a few kiddies as they came for their candy. We’re a bit warped, what can I say.
Anywho… more pictures later. It was a super fun evening. Thank Jacob and Misty for hosting this fun family event.
