it's not rocket science...

this is the closest we'll ever get to being compared to einstein...or anyone that smart. this is caleb in his 'professor' costume. he loved being on stage...funny since his sister is the one with all the drama, if you know what i mean.

i can't believe i didn't bring my good camera so this is all i've got...caleb/einstein and sarah dancing...or whatever they did with that hula hoop.

ben loved it and totally recognized caleb in his costume and waved at him for the first 20 minutes of the performance.

the past 2 weeks have been hectic so i have more to post....tomorrow, when i wake up.....from a looooooong sleep.

rock on!

well, if you haven't heard are hearing it now...or you will when you click the link.

rob's 2nd musical is wrapping up and we, like all good americans, totally hired our own kid to work in the studio. yep, nepotism at it's finest.

caleb has several solos (he's getting the hang of it...) and sarah got a few lines again this year. she's very "understanding" about the fact she's too young to be in the studio full-time. yeh, right. she's STILL not over it and at this rate...i think she has enough drama to do every character herself!

even ben is singing these songs so i hope you buy, um, i mean, like it!

(caleb has a solo in #2 - the papparazzi line...and then is also the "bad" audition, song #3)

what's mine is....

i ran across this picture from the disney show we went to a while back. i forgot to post it (gee, i don't know why i didn't get around to it!)

we shared the box with a friend of a friend so other kids were there....and one little boy REALLY liked the snack ben had ... so ben watched the entire show with his cup holder closely guarded.

ok. so i'm SUPPOSED to post pictures of the kids in their costumes....yeh, i don't have any.

seriously. rob is still in peru so getting 3 kids in costumes, um, and myself, took a little time considering the following:

1. caleb is too cool to go trick or treating BUT he still needed help with his bling. (he WAS going to be Erkel but decided he didn't LOOK like him...hmmm, wonder why. so he decided to be a rapper...he seemed to have a 'theme' this year.)

2. sarah needed her hair to look like a fairy...she wasn't EXACTLY sure what that was BUT we tried about a dozen hair-dos and don'ts. not sure if she was ever really happy but i'm sure we took out a layer of the ozone with the pink hairspray.

3. ben doesn't like costumes despite the fact he plays dress-up almost daily AND his costume was Handy Manny which required jeans, t-shirt and baseball hat. he finally decided 2 hours into the party that he was ready for his costume.

4. costume was pretty easy. a friend took this picture on her phone to send rob...i'm sure he was really excited to get it. i can hear him roll his eyes all the way from here.

i'll post pictures of the kids when my friends send them to me...they had cameras...i had 3 kids in 10 different directions!
