I made Halloween costumes for Lauren, Nathan and Andrew this year. It really was a lot of fun, and they turned out pretty darn cute (if I do say so myself!) Brian and Carrie had a party this evening (a cookout/ potluck), and then took all the kids around the neighborhood trick or treating. It was a fun evening.

The number of pictures of each child is directly proportionate to how quick I catch them for a moment.

As you’ll notice, Lauren was my most willing subject!

Here’s one of Camden and Carsten with Lauren and Nathan.

I saw the Sound of Music last night for the second time in a theater. The first time was in 1965, the year it was released, and that was my second time in an indoor theater in my life (Swiss Family Robinson was the first). Last night’s event was a sing-a-long, with the words to every song printed at the bottom of the screen karaoke style.  There were 30 Facebook friends as well as about 30 other “singers” in the audience, and we had a blast singing along to every song. I had the album (yes, a vinyl 33rpm ALBUM) when I was a girl – I still have it – and I knew all the words to all the songs. (Well, I admit, I didn’t know the Latin words to the nun’s morning hymn, nor could I ever get all the words to The Lonely Goatherd).

I think this post can turn into a list of 10. Here’s 10 songs from The Sound of Music:

  1. The Sound of Music
  2. How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria
  3. I Have Confidence
  4. Sixteen Going on Seventeen
  5. My Favorite Things
  6. The Lonely Goatherd
  7. Do-Re-Mi
  8. Something Good
  9. So Long, Farewell
  10. Edelweiss
  11. Climb Every Mountain

Whoops, it’s a list of 11. Just couldn’t stop myself.
