They are laughing together again...

I wish I could have seen it - the reunion.

What a wonderful man. What a legacy he has left.

He will be missed so very much,
but I feel a sense of peace.

My Wicked Thoughts...

Have you ever enjoyed something so much that you just can't stop thinking about it for days and days and most likely weeks and months and years?!? Me too! Last weekend, I saw Wicked with some of my most favorite people in the world - my mom and four sisters. I have never had the desire to memorize the words to every single song of a musical since Miss Saigon. I am already so close to memorizing all of the Wicked music. I just love, love, love it! The musical made me laugh - a lot - and it made me cry. The ending was just incredible - what a surprise!

It was so much fun to see mom so "into" something other than the Katella Knights, or Gone With the Wind! She had read all the websites that had anything to do with Wicked, and knew all the spoilers. I love it. Thank you mom, for arranging such an incredible evening to be remembered forever!

I hear it will still be playing in June when we are there for Kelley's wedding.... let's see..... if it starts in LA at 8:00 - and the reception ends at 5:00........ hmmmmmm.....

Have you ever played this game?

Each square has a different face on it - with an m&m (my personal fave) on top. One person leaves the room and the others secretly choose one of the squares. The person then comes in and begins eating the candies, one by one. If they pick up the one on the chosen square, everyone yells, "Don't eat Pete!" It's fun to see how many you get to eat! This is always a favorite with the kids. It's super easy and you always have everything you need (since you can always use cereal - just not nearly as fun as m&ms or skittles.)

We had lots of fun playing this on New Years Eve with the Roberts and Makaafi's. Kendall cried every time everyone yelled "DON'T EAT PETE!!" because it was just too loud. We tried to have the kids "yell" quietly - but everyone just got way too excited when the secret square was chosen! Poor Kendall.
