Kelsi is right in the middle in the back. She has been playing flag football on Saturdays!!! She is so busy all the time.
Tonight we went to her Cotillion and I did not get a picture but all the boys were in suits and all the girls in pretty dresses with white gloves. My girls did not do this but James did and Richard and I had fun going to it and chaperoning. Lea, Camber and I just enjoyed watching although Lea was catching up on her cell phone messages, too, what a lot she has!!!
Anyway there was one huge group leaving just as we arrived and another large group starting. Lea said it was all sixth graders. And they were all various heights, very interesting. I was impressed that they all appeared to be very eager and willing to follow all the directions and did the swing, the waltz, the cha cha--parts of them all anyway and some other fun things. They really seemed to enjoy it and it was surely fun to watch.
Wow, I am really impressed with myself that I actually got myself dressed up in heels and went out again at night!!! Which reminds me Kelsi took this picture of herself and put it in my phone because of what happened the other night. Saturday night Camber and James went to the Temple and Jimmy and Lea were both out. Kelsi was watching TV in the alcove and I was watching TV in my room. At 8:30 I went to check on her and she was not there! The TV was on, lights were on, I went through the whole house...no Kelsi, I panicked, where could she be??? I called Camber and James who were driving home. I had none of the children's phone numbers in my phone!!!! Soon enough they found here. Lea had come home and was going to the Burnett's beach house and Kelsi wanted to go, too, (have children all their ages) and they probably thought I was asleep but no one told me she was leaving and Kelsi said they were hurrying but she did apologize most profusely for scaring me for a bit!!! And I now have her phone number and picture in my cell.
Oh, and Camber had a baby shower today and there was a beautiful carrot cake half eaten and I must admit I actually had quite a few bites. It was most delicious!!!
Oh, and I found a new place to buy my dates. Although the Whole Foods dates are marvelous, I found that Ralphs has them in bulk for $2 a pound cheaper and they are not quite as fat and fleshy but still very good...yea, I love dates, especially with almonds.
