Lindsey's choir Cabaret show

Listen to the Music was Lindsey's high school choir theme for this year's Cabaret show. Jackie, the choir booster club secretary, and mom of Christina, made our colorful, excellent entry sign. The wall of seniors turned out really well and each of them got to take home their keepsake 11 x 14 autographed photo.
After the first night's show, here's Neil (Elizabeth's husband), Elizabeth, me, and Jackie. Elizabeth is the president, I'm the vice president, and Jackie is the secretary. The treasurer, Karen, was backstage monitoring and supporting the students that night. Plus, she got some wonderful pictures, that I'll be posting here.
This is Karen's daughter, Charissa, who sang "Taylor, the Latte Boy."
Here is Elizabeth's daughter, Catherine, who sang "Alto's Lament," and here's a version of it since there is not one of her posted that I know of.
Here's some backstage socializing.
More of the same.
Lindsey performed in a trio with Jaime and Christina, singing "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy."
Since my camera was really messed up that night, most of my pictures were blurry. Thankfully, Rob, Bryan's dad, and Karen, Charissa's mom, took several that I've copied to be able to save for long-term. Thank you, Rob and Karen!
It's been a while since I've made clothes, but I was excited how well the girls skirts and vests turned out that I sewed for each of them. That turquoise sparkly fabric was a pain to work with, but they looked awesome on stage.
They harmonized beautifully together.
Their choreography went really well with the music.
The audience seemed to have been pleased by their lovely vocals and their darling costumes.
I never wanted this moment to end! Surprisingly, this was Lindsey's first time to perform in a small group in Cabaret, even though she's been in choir forever. She looked confident on stage and sounded fantastic.
The girls got along well the days prior to the big night, rehearsed, and worked out details.
So many pictures! I just couldn't narrow it down, so I included most of the ones that I borrowed from Rob and from Karen.
I flew my mom out to see the show, so Lindsey was delighted that her grandmother got to be there.

On Saturday night, Christina (on right) sang a wonderful version of "Popular." If anyone knows of Christina's performance on youtube, let me know and I'll add it.

One highlight of the song was that Jaime's dad played the trumpet in the band for this piece.
The crowd went wild and gave a thunderous applause. Okay, I admit that I might be exaggerating, but they did indeed seem to be one of the best acts of the night.
I just wish they could have performed on Saturday night as well.
Jaime, who joined Lindsey in Boogie Woogie, sang a really cute duet with Apoorva "The Grass is Always Greener." Here's a similar older version I found.
None of these pictures are in the right order! Here I am with Corey's mom at the ticket sales table on Friday night. It was hectic and we sold more than $4,100 of admissions for the two nights, and I am relieved that it's over. Overall, it went well, but I had a few glitches that were challenging. It's hard to be in charge sometimes. Anyway, I didn't even realize that Rob had taken this photo until I saw it posted with all of his others.
This was for either the opening or closing act.


The women's choir did very well.
Here's the choir director.
Some of the boys sang the Pokémon song and it was quite funny, complete with battle scenes. "You teach me and I'll teach you, Pokémon!" On the second night when they performed this, I about fell out of my seat when I saw Lindsey walking across the stage wearing her old Jigglypuff costume and it was hilarious! I don't have a picture of it though. Everyone was cracking up.
The show choir medley was really awesome.

One of the songs in the medley was Grease Lightning.

Bryan and Jordan looking good.
Catherine and Dionysus were acting their parts well.




Lindsey also performed in a group of ten, singing the hit, "Somebody to Love."
While I enjoyed this a lot and thought Lindsey did fantastic on her solos, my favorite act was her trio.
One of the moms of this group, Phyllis, who is Joanna's mother (to the right of Lindsey), got each one who sang in this group a single red rose bouquet to congratulate them on a job well done. What a nice thing for her to do!
This was after Saturday's show and I was exhausted and Lindsey and all the other students were relieved to have Cabaret been a success.
Dyeiesha, Melody, Lindsey, and Zach posed here as we were cleaning up and tearing things down.
The kids went to Cheddar's afterwards to celebrate. Here's Eric, who performed "Mr. Cellophane." All of the acts were outstanding, and his was particularly funny also.
Lindsey didn't have a problem being surrounded by all these nice young men.
It was late and I wasn't very hungry, but here's some of the food everyone snacked on.

Dionysus at 6'10" tall, compared to Lindsey, at 4'11.5" and Dyeiesha, at 5'2" towers over them.

That looks like it was a lot of hard work on everyone's part, but it also looks like lots of fun. I am always impressed with all the things that Lindsay is doing and involved in all the time. She is so fun and talented.

I don't think that there is any way I would be able to do a trio or solo on stage so kudos to her. What a great mom you are for always being so involved in the stuff your family is doing.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
