It's Sunday, so I have a confession to make. (Besides not going to church today.)
If I see High School Musical 2 on TV, I HAVE to watch it! But I only watch the last ten minutes. In fact, I don't think that I have EVER watched the whole movie.
I have purchased the movie for my son AND for my nephew. (My BIL was NOT impressed with that Christmas present for his son! hehehehe!!!)
What is my obsession with the last ten minutes you ask?
Even if I am in the worst mood, it will bring a smile to my face! It's the swimming pool scene. I LOVE that scene! I LOVE that scene for more than the music, more than the dancing, and singing. It has to do with WHO is on the set.
My #2 son.
He got to be an extra for HSM2. He had a blast. He set everything up himself. I didn't even know about it until he got a call back saying he was accepted.
The reason why I just LOVE the last scene is because you can actually see him over 10 different times on screen. (13 to be exact, but who's counting.) They are mere flashes of him dancing behind the main characters. (He's usually off to the left of the screen for those of you counting.) However, I know he's there, he knows he's there and when we describe what he is wearing, you too will know he is there!
The smart boy decided to wear a bright pink shirt with white and navy stripes across the chest and navy blue swim trunks. He stands out! I also smile when I see this scene because it reminds me that he was able to meet a crush of his at the time, one Miley Cyrus. She had a cameo appearance in the movie. My son was able to say hi to her! How cool is that?
Yes, he missed a couple of days of school in order to participate in this. A chance of a lifetime! And he loved every minute of it! What a great experience to share with his kids when he is older.
I am still smiling from watching the last ten minutes for the twentieth time....at least.
(Note: For those of you looking for him in the above photo, he is hiding behind the guy in the red tank top on the left. True story.)
This is our family right now. We have one son who is in Madagascar serving a mission. He has 5 months left. Our other son pictured here is a senior. Our time with him is winding down. This blog is for these men in my life. I love them with all of my heart! They mean more to me than words can describe....sometimes I am speechless (in a bad way too). That is all part of life. At the end of the day we love each other for each other, good, bad and not so pretty!
I am the mother of two awesome boys! One has recently returned from a mission for our church in Madagascar. Soon to be a Freshman in college.
The other is a Freshman in college and will be venturing out on a mission in the next year.
They have both brought me a lot of happiness and made me laugh! I am so blessed to have them in my life! They have had to go through things in life that some would feel are not fair, but they have not complained. They go through life with a smile on their face. They are a great example to me.
I am also the wife of an amazing man!!! Seriously! He does it all! He complains even less than my boys!!! I could not ask for a better companion than him. He is a great example to his sons. He works hard all week long, comes home and begins his work on our home and then continues to serve at our church. Yet, I do not feel neglected. He is there when I need him. He brings me lunch every day at work, he helps out at home, he loves me for me....what more can a woman ask for? Yep, I got him!!!
Can he be serious? Nope!
Our freshman....in college.
The Hubby (and his pal)
His only flaw....he doesn't know how to smile...hahahaha
OUR FAVORITE THINGS......
In the summer we LOVE to go to Lake Powell with my sister and her family. We have a blast there! There is never a dull moment whether it be from the kids, storms, bats or giant mice. We are constantly entertained by something or someone! Here are a few of my favorite memories.....
The Balloon Launcher
Many items were launched in 2005. Grapes, rotten tomatoes, live fireworks. ( I was the target for the fireworks.)
It was higher than it looked, especially for a scaredy cat like me. And by the way, I told Drew I was jumping, but didn't. He did!
My favorite place to be on a hot day! With one of my favorite nephews! (When he's in a good mood that is!)
A fun past time...watching others get their butt kicked on the molecule! Oh yeah!!!
Yep...the ride of my life....it hurt!
Bracing for the Storm
B-I-L and Hubby being pelted by the rain. The toys had to be secured!
The Many Faces of Hubby
Ok...he doesn't have many faces, in fact it's like pulling teeth to get a real smile out of him, so this makes this shot great!
