Looking out my window, on March 30, and this is what I see.

Really--snow!!! At the end of March? This would be beautiful in November---not March.

Hope you have a great day--anyway.

Another exciting day of Spring Break

I realize almost everyone went some place fun and exciting over Spring Break and we are no exception. On Monday, Lauren and I loaded the truck and headed out for a new adventure!!!

You see here at the Lehman house, our washing machine has been giving us some trouble. So while the part we need is on order we headed to our local laundry mat. What an adventure!!

We hauled all 8 loads into the building. (I only did laundry once last week, since I had spent a good part of Wednesday doing laundry for the musical.)
We got a few of them going at a time so they all wouldn't finish at the same time.

We did run into a little problem. But a kind AMISH woman doing her laundry their told me how to fix it! Yes, the amish woman, who doesn't have electricity at home, told me how to fix the problem.

It was great fun watching all the machines work at the same time!!! It wasn't much fun loading 13 quarters into each machine. :(

All washed, ready to dry!!!

Lesson learned while at the Laundry mat: It is really a fast!!! Not real cheap, but fast.

So if you ever have a ton of laundry and need it done quickly---go to the laundry mat. But here are a few tips.

Take baskets for each member of your family (that will save time when you get home and have to separate all the clean laundry).
The change machine will give you quarters for a $20. (That is a lot of quarters)
Take lots of hangers too!!
Don't bother with a book--we didn't really have much spare time.

So, that was a fun adventure. Give it a try some time!

A fun start to SPRING BREAK

The first weekend of Spring Break was a great one for us. We spent Saturday night with my Grandparents at their retirement home.
It was great to see them again and catch up with them. We did most of the talking; however, it is always fun to hear what they have been up too.
The big thing there was that the bird cage near Grandpa's room just received new birds. Hey don't laugh they are really fun to watch.

While we were there, Grandma Cathy pulled Lexi's front tooth!

Sunday, we had the chance to spend the evening with my other set of Grandparents.

Yes, if you are doing the math, I still have both sets of grandparents. We are truly blessed and totally enjoyed our time with them this weekend.

A final post about OK

I know the musical has been almost 2 weeks ago, but it has taken me about that long to recover from the whole thing.

The kids did a great job and once again I learned alot. The kids were great to work with (most of the time).

Here's a quick shot of my friend Danna and her son Jamison (one of Logan's friends). This is the second year that Danna and I have worked together on the costumes. She is great to work with. We had a ton and fun!!!
Lauren and a few of her friends in the dressing room.
If you have a teenage girl at home and think her room is a mess--you should multiply that by 39--oh boy--I mean oh girls!! Check out the mess in the background. The room looked like that every night all week! I never saw the boys dressing room so who knows, what that looked like.

Logan and a few of his friends.

This cute little lady was the greatest gal in the world to work with. She was always telling us how awesome we were. We just loved her!!!!

Well after 2 wonderful performances and a lot of late nights, this was all that was left.

Four loads of dirty laundry.

I washed that up last week and returned it to the school. So in our book, this puts an end the musical---until next year!!! The fun will start all over again.

Another post from OK

I had Lauren take a few pictures for me last night. Some of them are a little blurry but I think you will get the idea.The doors to the auditorium.
These are the clothes that be long to the guys.
Here is the line-up of the costumes our ladies are wearing. We have 37 girls this year!! I think with costume changes we have about 41 costumes just for the girls!!!
Lauren and a friend. Hopefully I can get a full length shot so you can see the skirt I made just for her. Below is Logan and his buddy Jamison. Don't you love the facial hair?

Well I know this isn't a ton of info; however, I don't have a lot of time this morning. Hopefully more pictures on Monday. Hope you have a great weekend.

Guess where I have been?

Yes, I realize that it has been well over a month since my last post. So sorry--I know that some day I will regret not adding to the blog more often. Our kids love to go back and look at the fun things we have done--I go back occasionally and check recipes that I have posted (both of them) ha ha.

Anyway back to the post--where have I been?


Not the state--the musical.

Once again,I have been helping with the costumes. My friend Danna and I have been working on dressing almost 60 kids for the musical which, by the way, this Friday and Saturday night.

If you don't have plans, tickets are still available for $5.

Right now I don't really have many pictures.

Both Logan and Lauren are in the musical--No I don't have any pictures. However, tonight is the final dress rehearsal so I am planning on getting some pictures.

I have lost track of how many skirts we have made, how much fringe we have sewn on and the number of hair bows we have created. But whatever the number it has been a lot of fun (for the most part) and the show is really coming together.

OK must be going--I have a couple more projects to finish before practice tonight at least two loads of laundry to do and I need to . . . I think you get the idea.

Better get going so I can get sewing.
