post show let down...

I had the greatest time singing in the chorus of La Traviata. I can't believe March is almost over and the show is over. I have "post show let down". I was sad to walk out of the theater on Sunday and know that I wouldn't see my new friends as often any more. This was a fun show filled with fun ladies who did the show. I miss Opera and I am so glad I had the opportunity to sing with Opera Southwest.

La la la traviata!

I have been very busy preparing to be in my first Opera in 7 years. If you are in the Albuquerque area, come on by and listen to some wonderful music and see me as a courtesan in the chorus.

5 years with St. Patty

Reflecting upon my last five years with Stephen brings me to the happiest place I have ever been. We have grown up together, fought together, loved together, and created a family together. I am more in love today than I was the day I got married. I used to hear people say that before I was married and couldn't understand why they would say such a thing. As the time has passed, I completely understand. I love my wonderful husband with my whole heart. He has truly become a helpmate to me and a blessing for my family. I look forward to every day with him and to the best forever possible.

4 Months!

I know I have said this over and over but, "TIME GOES BY SO FAST" Nolen is such a big lovable baby! We love him so so so much! He has rolled over from belly to back only four times. He likes to be held and is sleeping less and less. He is 24 1/4 inches and 16 pounds 9 ounces (75%). I just love this little guy!

Nolen Loves to Jump

Cosa sta succedendo?*

*Italian for "What's going on?" or "What's up?"
I have been trying to get Nolen to roll over, trying to get Edward well, and memorize Italian for "La Traviata". AND since my sister said she is missing Nolen and Edward growing up, I told her to check my blog for updates... I guess that means I need to update.
Love the blue Eyes
