Ryan and I have been living without heat for a couple weeks and on. My wonderful dad has come over 3 times to try different things. We bought a new thermostat to see if that would solve the problem, and it didn't. Finally, I called the heating company and they came this morning and fixed it. Our 'mother board' had gone kaplunk. More than $400 later, we have heat! We're so excited!!

Have Musicals Gone Too Far?

I think so. I'm a huge show tunes fan. When Legally Blonde-the musical came out this year I thought it was crazy. Now I just heard the director of the new "Spider-Man the Musical" announce they want to open in New York. I guess there aren't enough Broadway houses, so they are looking into a tent, no joke. Does anyone else think Broadway has gone too far?

Christmas Concert

Here are some "backstage" pictures from the concert. Enjoy!
The dress rehearsal.
My partner, Nathan. Four people asked us if we were siblings.
Shanae, Me, Lindsey. Shanae and I danced together about ten years ago!
The Kings Singers
2 turtle doves and 4 calling birds.
The best part of the "12 days". 6 geese a laying. 3 french hens.

A beautiful conference center.

Closing night was so great. The first presidency gave the King Singers their geneologies as a "thank you." In return they dedicated"danny boy" to President Hinckley. When the choir sang "God be With You Till we Meet Again," it brought tears to my eyes. The spirit was so strong. What a neat experience it has been. I danced for the prophet. Read for more details of the concert.

Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert

This week is going to be very hectic for me. I haven't danced in more than two years, and I have four performances this week. Ahh! I will spend the next five nights at the Conference Center, spending a total of about 30 hours. It's been a crazy last couple of months preparing, and only recently did I start to enjoy myself. We got to see the first group practice on Saturday and it almost made me cry. The music combined with the choir voices and movement is beautiful. It's been neat to see all that goes into this huge production. I hope all of you can come see it.

Snow Christmas Party

The annual Snow Family (Ryan's grandma's family) Christmas party was upon us. We didn't get a chance to go last year, so we were excited to go this year. The dinner was great and it was very nice to meet new relatives. The white elephant exchange was fun, besides the fact that every one kept stealing Ryan's gifts. We thought we were stuck with that green hat until someone snatched it.
This is our cousin Savannah. She's a doll.
Ryan ended up getting a blow dart gun. It's been quite entertaining for us. My plan worked and I got this beautiful Christus head. Not a bad white elephant, eh?

Lava Lava

We went to Lava Hot Springs last weekend to see my brother and his family. The vacation was nice; cold, but nice. We ate lots of food, burned our bodies in the hot springs and enjoyed visiting with our family.

Bye Michael!

My favorite night talkshow The Nightside Project, which I've blogged about in the past, has had some pretty dramatic changes as of late, namely the host, Michael Castner is gone! Yea, that's right. I was on their website last week and saw this post (the future of nightside). You must understand that Michael brought this time spot from spot 24 to spot 1 in less than a year. I tried listening the other night and can't stand it now! It's just not the same without dear old MC. To be honest, I'm very upset with KSL and think they made a bad move. Go here to his site for more info. City Weekly also did an article about it that's quite interesting. Apparently, it was for budget reasons (they couldn't afford him) but there are suggestions that some people didn't get along...despite the reasons, he's still around! He's starting his own radio show tonight, via podcast from his site, so tune in!

I had the great opportunity last night of going up 8000 feet with Ryan. He had his first night lesson and it was amazing! The sky was beautiful and he did such a great job with all his manuevers and landings. He flew down to Provo and back it was about a two hour flight. I'm so proud of him. He's doing great. Here's a picture of his plane and what it looked like!

New Phone

My cell phone broke a few weeks ago, it just died. The Verizon people said that it could not be fixed. After a few days I gave in and got another phone. It's nice, but I missed out on my $100 off because my contract was just 3 months shy of renewal. Aw well. It seems I always have bad luck with cell phones. I lost all my contacts, so if you'd like to give me your phone number, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Piano Recital

It's been so long sinced I've had my own recital, so it was nice to see someone using their talents. Ryan's sister Brianna is very good at the piano so we decided to go to her Halloween performance. She dressed up as an Egyptian Goddess and did a great job.

Another Farewell

A friend of ours from college had her farewell a few weeks ago. Ryan wasn't able to go, but I enjoyed visiting with her and seeing some other friends. She's serving her mission in Poland! Good luck Kristin!

These are some great friends from the Drill Team at college.

Harry Potter The End

Across the course of 3 weeks, I have successfuly finished book 7 of Harry Potter. I have listened to it while lying in bed, cleaning the house, and while in the car. I finished last night. I was a little disappointed with the book in general. Usually, it's so interesting that I cannot put it down, but I didn't feel this way about the final book. The last couple chapters were wonderful and I loved the ending. How did you like it?

When I was younger I chipped my front bottom tooth. I had it fixed, but lately I felt like it was loose. We had a dentist appointment Wednesday, and sure enough, they said the filling was being held on by my bottom retainer. Next week when I go back in they'll hopefully be able to fix it without having to take my retainer off. The good news is, we didn't have any cavities, thank goodness!

Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square Christmas Concert

A little over a month ago I auditioned for the annual Christmas Concert featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I heard about it in the Church News and thought, why not?! I haven't danced for over a year and thought I'd rekindle my talent. I made it and have been rehearsing weekly since. The concert will be Thursday through Saturday December 13-15. The concerts are free but tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed randomly because there has been such a demand in the past years. Registration can be done anytime between now through Sunday, November 11, 2007, at 11:59 p.m. at the following link.

The Haunted Forest

Last weekend Ryan and I got invited to go to a haunted house with some friends. I really enjoy going, but I scare very easily. Everyone in our group caught on to that fast and therefore kept trying to get the workers to scare worked. Ryan and I were in the back of the group, so we got a little jipped because we knew ahead of time when something was going to happen. I felt bad for the girls in the front of the group. All in all it was worth the money and got me in the mood for Halloween. If you are looking for a good Haunted House this season, try the Haunted Forest.

Uppercase Living

My sister hosted an Uppercase Living party last weekend. For those of you who've never heard of it, here's a link. They are stickers that you put on your wall, and you can get something for every room in your house if you wanted to. It was so fun and I couldn't help buying something. I won a door prize and ordered way too much. I can't wait till they come in next week!

Deathly Hallows

My long awaited Harry Potter book (the last one!!!!) has come into my arms. I reserved the book on CD because, at the time, I still had my old job where that's all i did all day. I'm a little regretful now, because:

1. I no longer work at a place where I can listen to books on CD all day long.

2. The cd player in my car doesn't work, so I have to listen to it just lying by the cd player in the living room.

3. I may get no sleep for the next night...or two.

4. I may not have time to do anything important.

Mom's 50th part 2

You've been hearing from me about my mom's birthday. Here is the last part of it:

We made dinner for my mom and the fam and had a nice visit Sunday night. My sisters and I planned a little program. I listed things throughout history that have happened on my mom's birthday. Toni listed things that are older than mom. Tara told my mom about things other people have done by the time they were 50. It was a good time, and we finished the night off with 2 games of Bonko.

Relief Society Broadcast

My mom got the opportunity to be in the choir for the General Relief Society Broadcast. They asked a handful of people from each ward in South Jordan to participate. She had a great experience, and got spoken to by the Relief Society Presidency. All the stakes in South Jordan were "supposed" to go. My parents ward didn't even broadcast it at the Stake Center this year. My mom got tickets for us to go. It was so wonderful! I hope you had a chance to watch.
