Nutcracker Suite on a Snowy Day

The Columbus City Ballet School Production- Saturday December 9th

Maura was in two dances  The Tea Dance and The Russian Dance.  A couple  of the moms helped me out as Maura’s mom was with her siblings at a swim meet.  Suzanne watched her while I ran to get lunch after the morning dress rehearsal and I’d left the makeup bag on the kitchen counter so Shelly added the finishing touches to Maura’s stage look.

Every Hair bow on her Head

Visiting family in Ohio, I came upstairs to go to bed in Maura’s room.

There she was, sporting every hair bow she owns!

Cheeky.

Deep Cleaning Closet Yield

Found this newspaper page from June 17,1966 today. Our eighth grade class.

My Grandmother’s High School Class 1904 picture, too.

I’m tackling a closet which had a few random treasures in the miscellaneous.

What sensible person holds onto this stuff?

Happy Birthday to my Dear Longtime Friend with much love. I hope you’re reading the blog today.

(Seriously longtime. We were in Mrs. Stewart’s class when news broke of JFK’s assassination. I remember Miss McCarthy crying in the hall).

But I figure you prefer anonymity so you know who you are.

“We were so much older then, we’re younger than that now”

Happy Birthday to my Cherished Friend

And in my mother’s handwriting -the names of the 1904 Durand High School class, Durand Illinois. Mr. Greenough didn’t get a first name?

Said “Cheeky” to Me

My take on this week’s challenge- CHEEKY

Although I was looking for cheeky photos with a touch of irreverence, I found these happy baby photos of grandson Michael (now 12) instead.

Grandma Marlene kissing Michael’s kissable cheeks

Love those cheeks!
