"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." ~Gordon B. Hinckley

First Kiss

During this month of me working, my sister in law Alecia was so nice to come babysit my kiddies for me. Along with her came her little boy Parker and her 6 month old Kennidi to play with Laetner while Delainee and mommy were away. They had such a good time. That Parker is a 'ladies man' and spent most of the days trying to plant one of these on my Wavee....


...and the rest of the day was spent fighting over who got to sit in Kennidi's bumbo (in the background). Apparently, if Parker ever pushed Wavee around too much, then Laetner would step in and set him straight!

Happy Belated Fathers' Day

Obviously June is a busy month, so I especially feel bad that both Father's Day AND Court's b-day happen during this month. Court's birthday was pretty pathetic---he went and purchased his own gifts and begged me to at least wrap them with the kids. Then on Father's Day we were up north due to our Fuller Family Reunion, and I was SICK, and we pretty much did not even celebrate. I was feeling pretty darn guilty, cuz if anyone deserves props as a Father it is Court. He is such a good daddy. Thank goodness that he works so hard to ensure that our kiddies have fond childhood memories! He is constantly doing activities with them, and always pushing us to go on vacations! It is no surprise that Waverly's one and only word is 'daddy' becuz he really is the BEST! Photobucket

We probably should celebrate him on Mother's Day as well, cuz the man keeps a way cleaner house than I----and he COOKS too! During this month of working at MCC, Court actually managed to be in town for a good portion of it, and it was sooo nice to come home to fed kids, a clean house, and finished laundry!!!! He is a little OCD and a bit of a germ-a-phobe to boot, but man alive I will take it.

Well, we decided we would surprise Court and we declared Sunday June 28th as Father's Day this year. I told the kids on Thursday what we would be doing and they were so excited! We did all the standard cards, and breakfasts, and gifts (that he did not purchase himself) and of course we CLEANED the house! But since Court was not expecting it, it was soo much fun!

We love you Court! You really are the best and we appreciate all you do.

(We really might want to look into legally changing your birthday and Father's Day out of the month of June, though Ü)

Delainee's MCC Workshop Performance

Delainee had her performance for Magic Music Kidz on Thursday night. She was in the orange 7:oo show! She did so amazing and sang so loud on her opening solo in "I Wanna Be a Movie Star". She had so much fun. This year we met some new friends that we were able to carpool with, and it worked out so well. Thank goodness their mom got a picture of our girls, cuz Court showed up at MCC with no camera!!!! I was at the theater ALL day long in rehearsal, so a big thanks to Shelby for getting Delainee ready for me. Don't think I would have trusted Court to the hair and make-up! Ü
Look out Broadway---here she comes!

Fuller Family Reunion

As if June wasn't busy enough, we had our Fuller Family Reunion smack dab in the middle of it! My baby brother Chris was in charge and we all headed up to Fool Hollow's Lake in ShowLow to spend a day on the lake and just playing with cousins. Here is the ENTIRE crew!

Here we have all my siblings with their spouses and my parents.

The kids had alot of fun playing relay races, taking canoe rides, hanging out on the dock, and just playing on the playground.
Friday night we had a talent show, which I am sad to admit, but we had no representation from the Fischbeck's. We could not get Delainee up there to sing anything for us. Oh well. Just our little family stayed at Fischbeck's cabin and we ended up staying all the way thru Sunday which was Fathers Day, but this whole week I was really feeling sick, and we honestly did NOTHING for Court. I feel so bad. Maybe we will surprise him next week when he isn't expecting anything.

June----- Aaack!

I hate excuses, I really do, but legitimately I am busy. Sooo busy that I should not be even typing this right now, but alas it is literally driving me crazy to see MAY 25TH as the last time I posted. I still have sooo many, many end of the school year type things to post about the kiddies, but they will have to wait until the end of my last crazy, crazy week in June!

The LPM open house took up the first week of June, and I actually did not work the first week of MCC's Musical Theater Workshops so I could focus on Let's Play Music. But of course Book Club still had to happen, and every spare moment was spent listening to musical theater songs for MCC where I would listen for solo instrument lines and 'transcribe' them into my actual music for the pit rehearsals that began bright and early Monday and Tuesday morning of the 2nd week of June. That rest of that weeks afternoons were spent in the theater at MCC, culminating with performances on Friday night as well as a Saturday matinee and evening performance.

THEN, the third week of June brought the start of the baby workshop in the the mornings at MCC--at least Delainee gets to come to this with me everyday. Luckily it only runs Monday thru Thursday morning, but as soon as we got home Thursday afternoon, we all loaded up into the van to head up north for a Fuller Family Reunion. The kids had a blast, and I better be posting about that later! Oh and since Wednesday I have been SICK! Man alive I do not feel good. Please tell me it isn't normal to wake up every morning with a splitting headache. Those should go away with a good night's rest, right??? Plus, I just ache and have a sore throat to boot----I do talk kinda sexy, though. But I just don't think it is right to start every morning with a cocktail of Excedrin, Prednisone, Plaquenil, and an occasional Tylenol arthritis thrown in there.

This week will be the week of ALL weeks. I will be lucky to come out the other end in one piece. I do have a feeling it will happen in a bit of a drugged haze. Luckily Monday and Tuesday will be spent in the standard morning workshop only. But starting Wednesday I will be at MCC ALL day long, plus on Wednesday I need to run to my nieces Wedding. Thursday---all day long again with TWO performances that night---Delainee will perform at the 7:00 performance! Friday and Saturday will have the standard evening and then matinee and evening performances, but then immediately after I need to book it over to aforementioned niece's wedding RECEPTION.

Then the next day on Sunday I am supposed to teach the lesson in Relief Society----Aaack!

So for any of you that have tried to call or e-mail this month and I have either NEVER gotten back to you or have been really short with you, or just replied it is JUNE---well hopefully you understand.
