Rehearsal, Royalty, and ........Doughnuts!!

My Mom has been here since Wednesday night. We've packed some different things into a very short time. On Thursday morning we went to the rehearsal of the kids Spring Show for YCW. My Mom will not get to be here for the "real thing" on Monday night, so we sat in on the rehearsal that they had on Thursday morning. I'm telling you that hour and a half that we got to see them rehearse gave me more smiles than anything that happened the whole day.Of course when Carson's group got up there my camera battery died so I did not get any pictures. But he was so funny.  He was galloping in circles on the stage and jumping up and down which would have been ok (I mean what do you expect? These kids are 2!) except he's a shortie and they placed him in the first row. The teacher was afraid that he was going to fall off so she walked him back  to his designated spot. I think it hurt his feelings that his enthusiasm was squashed (as well they should have!) and he burst into tears.  Ah we will see what Monday brings. Here are the pics from Kate's part.

She spotted me!

She has done this since she was a little girl. When she is unsure about something she will pat her mouth over and over.

Sweet babies. It was the best kind of  chaos.

It's a toss up. Will Monday night give us this face???

This pose.

Sweet folded hands

My money is on the fact that we will get this face. :)

30 years ago my Mom and I watched the wedding of Princess Diana and that guy Charles. I remember getting up very early in the morning to watch it. It was a special memory for me. This morning through the magic of cable TV Mom and I did not have to get up at 3 am to catch the show. We watched the encore presentation at 9 am rested and relaxed. And do you want to see the cutest Royal Wedding Watcher ever??? I promise, my Mom and I did not buy this crown for him to wear. (Kate got it the day before in her prize bucket at school.)Nor did we put the crown on his head. We just looked over and he was wearing it. We were laughing so hard.  Just for the record, Carso thinks William and Kate are  going to last. :)

 And last but not least, today I made a special treat that my girl loves. Homemade doughnuts. :) I love making these for her. It's an all day thing. When I give her the first one to eat and she shouts "Doughnuts!" it makes all of the effort very worth it. Oh, and by the way, if you ever run out of powdered sugar, just mix 2 cups of regular sugar with 2 T. of cornstarch in a blender. I learned that little trick today. :)

Carson is so hilarious. Tell his teacher that I said...he can run, gallop, turn cartwheels off the stage if he wants to...:o).
Kate is just too sweet. Love the folded hands picture.

And you watched the last royal wedding?!?! Man, you're old. Ha! Just kidding. Just kidding. Burke and I have enjoyed watching William and Kate as well. Reminds us of our own wedding. (wink!wink!)
Glad you are enjoying time with your mom!
