First things first: "White Christmas" was a huge hit! I had some teachers come up to me and say it was the best one they had seen ;) The students all had a lot of fun with it and in it and I think that is what made it so great! There were 47 cast members and 201 costumes! Because of all this, I was very busy backstage getting the girls in their outfits and making sure no one missed their cues. Rylee LOVED everything about being involved with this! She was very professional about being a train passenger and didn't even wave back at Beckett opening night when she was up there! The cast loved her and were so great with her. She made friendship bracelets backstage and played barbies with the girls. It was a great experience for both of us! I am sad that it is over but I am glad to have some down time!
Now that it has cooled off outside we have been doing a lot of family things inside. The kids LOVE when we build them forts. Last week I built one in Rylee's room and she decided it looked like a rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland. She reinacted the whole movie with helo from costars Beckett and Mackenzie.
It was very cute and made me wish I was a kid again with that kind of imagination!
Reading books at night has always been a bit of a ritual here. Now that Rylee has a few books that she knows from memory she reads to Beckett every night. It is very sweet to see them share their favorite stories together and bond in that way.
The kittens are stll doing well. They are growing quickly! Bogey is a snuggler. He loves to be on a lap--when he is tired he enjoys curling up on Josh's shoulder. Mae Mobley only rests for short periods of time and usually hide under Beckett's bed when she's tired. She is a sweetheart too but she has a little more attitude. She always starts the "fights" between her and Bogey and is always trying to chase and jump. It is a lot of fun to watch the kids interact with them! There is never a dull moment here in the Mosier House :)
