a peek inside

     A year ago my sister got me a Smash book for Christmas. A Smash book is like a scrapbook and a journal combined. I love it. Its a great place to record memories and add bits and pieces about yourself. I least thats how i use it. Hobby Lobby usually has these with lots of accessories. I love coming up with new ideas for it. I even have a Pinterest board for it. The page I am working on know is about my love for snail mail, with a few letters and packages I got this summer. There are endless possibilities for a Smash book.

For a great summary of what a Smash book is click here.

I have moved to a different site, so come on over!


'I'm Awesome'

My brother Ethan hangs out with a neighbor friend almost every day. Max (the friend) thinks Ethan is really awesome and Ethan knows that. I overheard this conversation:

Ethan: "I'm not cool. Am I cool?"
Max (eager): "Your cool!!!"
Ethan: *superman smile* "Yeah, I'm cool."  

You could say Max is too much of a confidence booster...Ethan was told by my Mom to tell Max he was cool, too. 

Love you bro!

Cast party

  Several months ago I preformed in Beauty and the Beast. I was Chip, and it was a fun and delightful week of preforming. It was so much fun to spend the week with all of my friends from co-op. We made so many good memories, that I hope I will never forget. Such as the midnight party after a performance when we went to I-Hop, and I got a rather large (huge) stack of pancakes. The boys finished it off for me. :) And spraying 'tea' (water) at Lefou. That was probably my favorite part of being Chip. And of course the thrill of performing every night. A part I could forget is my human again costume. I think I prefer being a tea cup rather than a boy.  I can hardly wait for next year's show to be announced.

I love to painting even though I have NO talent.

snow can be in CO even in the middle of the summer heat
new memories are the best
tie dye T-Shirts help keep track of everyone when you are touring

Ate at a litte coffe place where they claimed to have the "best donuts ever"...not true
