Some things

1. My recital is tonight, and Joel's middle school orchestra concerts are tonight. So, he is taking Bria on a daddy/daughter date to get some dinner and then she gets to sit through all 3 concerts. I am taking Chloe on a mommy/daughter date to get some dinner and then she gets to drive down to St. George with me and sit through my "Lullaby of Broadway" recital. Sophie gets to go play with cousins since she wouldn't be able to sit through anything at this point.

We figure this is the best possible arrangement, since Bria rocks at the violin (Chloe hates it...we're probably changing her to piano in January, which she is much more excited about), and Chloe loves to sing show tunes.

2. My friend Jon is doing a research paper on blogging. He would love it if you would go over to his blog and answer a few questions to help him out with his project: Starmaster's Guide.

3. I'm going to be writing my photography Q & A on Thursday. If you haven't submitted a question yet, hurry!

That is all. Carry on.

  1. GENIUS!!!! What a smart thing to do with the girls tonight!
    Wonder if Conner would want to come sit through 8 hours of women screaming babies out?
    Lara, you are very good at catchlights, I'd explain those -- if you have the time.
    And the will within your fingers.

  2. Sounds like life is still just crazy busy at your house! Did the girls enjoy their alone time with each of you? I think they'll treasure that for a long time!

  3. Photo question: Pets & Red Eye...
    I've got the people pretty much figured out (only because my camera does a pretty good job of taking care of it for me, and when it doesn't I have software that will fix it)... but my cat? Well, he's all aglow no matter what I seem to try.

    I suppose it would be nice to know a trick (if there was one) to avoid red-eye in people, too, in case I got a camera that didn't take care of it for me.

    But what Hilary (?) said/suggested sounded good too. I am just excited to learn new stuff. Thanks so much for teaching us!

  4. Best of wishes to you and yours........
