This one is for the Grandma's

If you didn’t know my husband is a thespian!  Yes, Colin decided to try out for the Wyo-theater’s Gala this year, Any Thing Goes.  Apparently, anything does go because he made it, JUST KIDDING!  That was just too easy! Seriously, the show is awesome and Colin is the best darn steward I have ever seen. If you live in Sheridan you should go, if you can.   The unfortunate result of this amazing production is that it has required my husband to be at practice 5 nights a week for 2-4 hours.  We have missed him and can’t wait to have him back.  Needless to say, evenings can get a little long with his absence, so we have had to mix it up a bit.  We had several dinner dates with friends which were wonderful and I have invented several new nighttime routines.  Once a week we have been having BedTime PartyTIME, if he brushes his teeth and gets to bed with out a fuss all week, we break out the books and the animals and P-A-R-T-Y, library style.  It is honestly so sweet, one of those things that you want to remember forever. 

 This week he really got into and while I cleaned up the kitchen he set up the party.  If you notice all his favorite animals got their own books and the others had to share. 
 (for aunt nunu, i helped get this guy to stay in the chair)
 He loves this baby fox and is funny with it.  He was having a hard time reading to it and hold it, so he came up with the idea of zipping it up in his shirt...

 I have no idea where he would have come up with this, do you Colin?
