Singing about candy makes me smile

On Saturday Kate and Julia performed in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The musical  no doubt.

Julia was Ms. Teevee and Kate was a child/cook.

They were wonderful. Jeff and I were glowing, proud parents.

When Kate asked Nora what her favorite part was, she said, "you and Juey-la(Julia)"

Hey, that was my favorite part too!

We are goofy and dramatic in our family, so school plays just seem an extension of that. 

I was really proud of Kate, because after playing Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, she didn't get a part in the school play the next year when we moved to Maple Valley. It shook her confidence for a while. But she went for it again this year and had a great time. 

And Julia had a hilarious scene where she laments the fact that her son Mike is now only 6 inches tall. 

I have some fun picture of the girls and the cast mates after the show, but my regular lens that I normally use made everything show up fuzzy. So I had to switch back to my zoom lens. Melissa Dillon-any thoughts as to why? Or where I can get it repaired? Thanks.

So here is a slew of pictures for you. It was so fun. And if you happen to be in Maple Valley  this coming weekend, come check out their next two performances!

Oh, and I took a picture with the gates so that you could see Jeff's handiwork in action. And I did Julia's hair. 
Do we have a future as a family in the theatre? Perhaps.


  1. You've got such an awesome family! I love it!

  2. hmm....your 18-55 did that? there might be a smudge on the lense itself (on the outside part). was it looking like it was in focus when you took the pictures? I know it's hard to tell in the dark theatre. If you think there's something wrong with it, I know Kits Camera (Covington) does some repairs in shop. Others get sent out. so you'd be without it for a bit. Good luck!

  3. oh -- i, of course, LOVED this play, too. The white cast knocked it out of the park! :)

  4. Love all the pictures! Looks like a fun play. Regarding the camera lens.. I made a couple of dumb mistakes recently with mine that resulted in fuzzy pictures.. wrong ISO speed for one batch (fuzzy/grainy pics) and the other time I forgot to switch back to auto-focus (but the pics looked in focus when I took them, so I didn't notice until later).
