Katie & Emma's Showcase Dance Recital May 21, 2010!

Katie and Emma are cousins that are 14 years apart but it was fun that they could be in the same dance recital. Emma has been taking for one year and Katie has been taking at Showcase for 16 years. This is her last year. There were 7 seniors that have pretty much danced together for at least 10 years. Katie has been there the longest. They did a video presentation of these girls. It was really fun to see how much they have grown up with dance. It has become Katie's whole life. I really appreciate the teachers and the life lessons that Katie, Brooke and now Emma will be able to learn. Thanks Jeana, Cassie and Tewa for all your love and support of my girls!

Katie & Emma's Showcase Dance Recital

Alec's 5th Grade Wax Museum

In the 5th grade each student chooses a dead American Hero and dresses up like them in a living wax museum. Alec went as John Hancock one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He had to write a report on him and then dress up like him. I love his costume! He is the only one with a paper wig! It rocks! Alec's friend Hayden Hargraves went as George Washington.

Katie's Seminary Graduation

Katie Graduated with a 4 year certificate from Seminary! The Stake President asked her to speak at Seminary Graduation. Katie was really scared but did an amazing job. She explained the mission of Seminary and why it's important as a member of the church. I think it's awesome because at one time Katie wanted to quit seminary and said that it wasn't important. I know that she's glad she stayed and had a really great experience!

Happy Birthday Brooke & Katie

Katie and Brooke both celebrated birthday's in May. Katie turned 18 and Brooke turned 22! Wow someone's getting old!

More about Saratoga Splash


Yes, please come! We've worked really hard on this event and it's sure to be a blast in spite of the weather. I was in charge of all the entertainment so swing by the carnival and say hi to me... I'll be at the stage ALL DAY!

Also, Max and Abby are both competing in 'Saratoga's Got Talent'. They could really use a good cheering section!! It is on the main stage at 5:00 and should only be about 30-45 minutes.

You won't want to miss the main concert either. It's going to be great... and it's FREE!! It starts at 8:00 pm and features Eclipse... you'll love them!! Please bring friends and family and come enjoy a night under the stars with great music. (Concert will be moved to Westlak High School if the weather is not cooperative).

Last, but not least, please pray for great weather and send warm thoughts this direction. This event was rained out last year and it was so hard to see all my work go to waste. I believe in miracles and the power of our family so please help me out here!! I'd love to see my event go off without a hitch this year!
