80's Prom

My cousin and his wife just built a full size gym on their property. Last night they hosted an 80's prom. It was histerical!!! Everybody was dressed in 80's costumes, it was truly a blast from the past! Emily, Amanda and Jed, David and I went together. You can't really see it, but David's sports coat is blue suede. It was perfect!I don't know if you can see Amanda's belly, but she looked so cute in her prom dress! My cousin says that every prom needs a "pregnant girl." Can you believe that Jed found that suit? Amanda said that he called her from Goodwill about 6 months ago and said he had to buy it because both the jacket and the pants fit! He knew it would come in handy some day!
We listened to 80's music, drank strawberry fanta, they had a photographer with the whole prom set-up. It was really a great party! I sure hope they do it again!

Food Storage, Food Storage, Food Storage

We've been working on setting up a piano studio for when I teach piano lessons. I finally finished the curtains and almost have it completely set up! Take a look!
We've also been working on food storage. Here are some homemade fruit snacks the Eve, Kristen and I made! Notice the one in the shape of a snake!

Last week we canned chicken noodle soup (without the noodle)! I'm finally feeling more comfortable with the pressure canner...maybe this week I'll try it all by myself.

Charlie's Fiesta Cultural

Charlie's school had a special program tonight. They call it the Fiesta Cultural. Every class does a dance from a different cultural. Charlie's class did a Hawaiian dance and he did a wonderful job! He's in the back, right behind the big S on the gym floor. We were all quite impressed with how well he actually danced. We had no idea he has this talent. He was very excited about this performance (he even insisted on taking a shower before he went!). I think he also liked going to ice cream afterwards and being able to order anything he wanted. Great job Charlie!!!
