Seussical the Musical

My boys have enjoyed being in plays growing up (Jr. High plays, Broadway Kidz each year, community theater), but this has been Trevor’s favorite.  He was excited to make the cast of Seussical the Musical, his first High School Musical.  Can you believe my youngest boy’s a freshman already? 

Sophie and Sage cheered and supported him all the way!  Love the “Who Hair” 


  The cast practically lived at the school, rehearsing right after school until late at night, doing homework in between scenes.  Even Saturday rehearsals.


They had a successful fundraiser Seussical Brunch- served Green Eggs and Ham, a Silent Auction, Who Hair and Face Painting, Pictures w/ Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss storytime, and mini performances from the cast, it was a hit!  The girls loved the pampering and funky hair-do from the Dance Co.


20131123_120209They did a great job with all the bling and said our girls hair turned out the best.  That’s what we get for being the last in line, a lot of pampering.


With the Cat in the Hat, he did an awesome job in the play!!


Some of Trevor’s biggest fans, thanks for coming Grandma & Elisa!



The woman who put it all together, she’s a great director and theater teacher!  She pushed them hard to bring out their best talent.  Thanks Phaidra!


Trevor’s first autograph, cute. 

Excuse the blur, I had to hurry to catch this, all these pics are from my phone.


Trevor was happy to perform for the mayor on the last night (sold out show).  I was busy helping with concessions that night.  Proud of my boy!  Great show!


They’ll miss this, but as Dr. Seuss says “Don’t be sad that it’s over, be glad that it happened!”

Soccer, Cornbellies, and Class parties

Their fun coach had a costume soccer practice.  Sweet seeing the team squeal and run over when I dropped off Sophie and Sage.  They enjoyed seeing everyone in costume.


A super cute, and talented team


Top it off with glazed doughnuts, what every soccer player needs.


The team met later that week for a fun night at Cornbellies!


Awesome corn maze this year, U vs. BYU, the girls had fun finding their way.


Class parties



Their official costumes.

Who knew racoons and clowns were besties?  At least these two are (90% of the time anyway).  Sophie cracks us up!  They both do, personality plus!


The girls were excited to go trick or treating with a close friend from school (they have such good friends).  They brought the group up to our neighborhood since our neighbor gave out full size candy bars, lol.


Then off to see both Grandma’s.  Trevor went to a Halloween party with friends, no more trick or treating for him.  Now, to figure out what to do with all that candy.  Last year they sold most of it to their dentist, it went to the troops.

Halloween 2013

I have some bloggy catch up to do, can’t skip our eventful Halloween... 


The family looks forward to our favorite Halloween tradition, Frightmares at Lagoon.  Since the girls are tall enough to ride all the rides now, they love it even more, our own little Disneyland!  We hit all the rides, visit Pioneer Village for dinner, old fashion ice-cream, and enjoy the shows and spook alleys.  We went in the 1-3 spiders, while the boys braved the gory 4 & 5 spider spook alleys.  This is the first year without the older boys, sure miss them!  It’s been almost a year since my concussion, I can handle the rides much better (although the Cliff Hanger was dreadful, slowly hanging upside down was not a good idea).  At least we didn’t get wet!  A fun filled day for all!
Fun at Frightmares!

Haunted Hallow- our city puts on a lively Halloween even each year for the community.  The kids enjoy the fire truck pumpkin drop, game booths, graveyard tours, crafts, and of course, seeing friends, it gets bigger each year. 

Nice stache Trev-  


Cool Owl


Trunk or Treating…


Our ward (church) does a cool Trunk or Treating each year.  This year with my new calling in the RS (over Enrichment), I worked close with the committee for a great evening.  Everyone had a good time with a chili/soup dinner, costume parade, and trunk or treating.  Enjoyable night, except when my yummy tortilla soup spilled in the car on the way, what a mess.  Oh well, time for a shampoo.  The rest of my soup was a hit, many compliments. 


Spooky house in the neighborhood, all decked out for Halloween! (most of these pictures are from my phone)


Who’s that soccer ball?  Funny, my girls switched up their costumes this year, depending on the event.


I dressed up to volunteer at the kids school party (one more Halloween post coming), so I kept my witch on for the day.  Ne, he, hee 


Happy Halloween, hope it was great for everyone!

Speech Festival


These two cuties made the finals in the annual speech festival, way to go girls!  They presented their poem in class, then won the next level, presenting to the whole school (Sage had butterflies about that, can’t blame her, but she practiced and said a little prayer, and did great!), and they both made the finals!  Last year Sage won the first level with “Mithing Tooth” by Ken Nesbitt see here (ha, that would be appropriate this year).  Here’s Sophies poem, I’ll add Sages soon (from my phone). 

“Seeing Double” by Sophie, Speech Festival 2013

LOL, the teachers and faculty (and their friends) loved it!


Gelato celebration.

They never cease to amaze me!  Anything worth doing, is worth doing well, right?
