Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
We drove to St. George to surprise my grandmother for her 90th birthday and we threw a little party at her nursing home complete with cake and decorations.
Red Fish put on a concert for Grandma and some of her friends.
The girls got to go spend some one on one time with her great grandmother in the nursing home. It was one of grandma's good days and she was able to talk to them a lot. I hope it is something that they remember all of their lives. They each spent a little one on one time with Grandma talking about who they want to be when they grow up and sharing special moments with Grandma. I was so glad that we got to go spend this bittersweet time with her. She has been such a huge influence in all of our lives.
We were so excited to take our kids on a temple tour and hopefully have them understand the temple a little bit better. Red Fish was very excited to tour the temple. She especially wanted to see the sealing rooms since she knows we were sealed when she was a baby. New Fish was so excited that she could hardly contain herself the whole time even though she was trying hard to be reverent and respectful of the temple.
Red Fish has quite a block of music memorized or performance ready right now so she has been going to assisted living centers to perform and she put together a recital for family. She has stage fright even though she desperately wants to show off her piano skills so I'm trying to give her more opportunities to perform so she won't get so nervous.
New Fish would love to take piano lessons but I'm not ready yet. So we are learning a few things together at home. She wants to keep up with her sister in every way and I am enjoying the special time together.
Red Fish has a french choir performance and we snapped a picture with her best friend T afterwards. They did a whole Disney concert in French. It was very cute. Red Fish wants to do so many things and participate in so many things- it is very difficult to keep up with. This little choir is part of her elementary school.
