The Priests invited the Laurels over to our house for a "game" night. Little did the girls know it was really "wild game" night. They released lobsters into our pool! (I know my could I let them do this? Can I ever swim in it again?)

Did I mention they put lobsters in our pool!

Here Brother Henderson is demonstrating how to catch a lobster while it is swimming (IN OUR POOL!)

Oh by the way....Nathan cut off the bands on the claws...makes for fun catching!

Cute little critters!

Can you believe Elizabeth actually caught one? Way to go Elizabeth!

Of course they cooked them up after they caught it. Along with the lobster they also cooked elk, reindeer sausage, and quail. What a feast!

And they got all the lobsters out of the pool!

Mom's Easter Visit

Janelle's mom came down from Utah for the Easter weekend. We had so much fun. Here are some of the highlights.

Dying Easter Eggs!

Easter Baskets!

Easter Egg Hunt!

And of course, lots of pictures to remember Easter with. Here are a few of my favorites!


For the front of the CD album someday....

Yes!!!! Mom is almost done taking pictures!

Thanks Mom for coming. You are wonderful! PS. All that practicing you did with the kids really paid off. Anne really did well at flute lessons today. And Elizabeth sounds wonderful on the piano. You are the best.

My New Look

So, I, Elizabeth, thought I should inform the world who does not see me regularly of my new look. It is a type of dress called scene, and I have just fallen in love with it. (Type it in on google images, there are some really cool kids there).


Lol. So This is the outfit I wore on April Fools. It was tons of fun to go to school and watch as people stared at the girl who usually dresses like a nerd show up as a scene kid. And that makeup is intense, let me tell you. The night before I practiced putting in on a couple times, and it still took me an hour to put it on that morning. And it still wasn't half as pretty as some of the girls who do it regularly. The white tie is from my percussion outfit, and unfortunately it was the most 'scene' thing I had in my closet.

I really do like liquid eyeliner though . . it is fun to put on.

Dilemma last night Anne informs me of the night of her high school band concert. Wouldn't you know it....I have an elementary concert that same night. What to do? I have been late to or missed every single one of Anne's concerts this year.

The elementary concert is one have played for three years in a row. The written music is only a melody line. I have made up all the accompaniment, and of course have never written it down. So finding another accompanist at this late date is out of the question. (This teacher asked me to play this concert in November.)

So do I miss another one of Anne's concerts, or leave 200 kids singing a cappella?
