Got the photos of the play. Here are a few:
Anthony is the one saluting. He is my "adopted" son. He lived with us for over a year and still thinks of me as his other mom :)

Here is my son Sean in his lederhosen. He hated that outfit.

This is the entire cast. These are all high school students, and they did a great job. Harley and her brother Reno are in the pic too. Harley is the girl on the bottom row right with the really big wings and Reno is in the back row behind the boy in the silver gown (the kid was playing the sandman, btw.) and the girl in the red dress.

Time to give in to vanity

OK, so I am not the most vain person in terms of my appearance, but today I finally gave in on one thing: the gray hairs had to go. So I am back to being a redhead again.. It is pretty close to what my natural hair color would be without the gray, so I am happy. I don't like straying from my natural color too much because it grows out in a really obvious way and I go a long time between coloring, sometimes even years. I needed to color before the wedding, so I figured now was as good a time as any. Now the only thing I have left to do is get my nails done and I will be all set.
It has been raining here about every two days or so, off and on for a couple of weeks now. The front yard looks like a swamp and the back is a little pond. Texas is not known for it's rain, so this is a really good thing. San Antonio is under level 2 water restrictions right now because our aquifer is under 650 feet. I am hoping all this rain brings us out of the drought conditions. I don't want another summer like last year. It was hot hot hot and horribly dry. 
Tonight we are having corned beef and cabbage for dinner. I just love the way it smells when it is cooking, but with my issues and not being able to eat meats, the smell is the only joy I get out of it; well, that and I can eat the cabbage :) Being a vegetarian in a house full of carnivores is interesting, to say the least. 
Sean's play went well last Friday. He was in the school production of Hansel and Gretel. A lot of my "adopted" kids were in it too: Anthony, Reno and Harley. I will post pics when I can get them uploaded. Sean was really cute in his lederhosen (even if he hated wearing them). I guess when you are a 15 year old male, wearing anything that looks like that would be embarrassing. I tried to tell him that at least it isn't a dress, but he wasn't listening :)
Well, that's about it from our house. Have a great week everyone!

Busy Busy Busy

It has been a really busy month around here. Heather is getting married on June 19th and we are scrambling around getting the last of the things in order. Today it is the day we go look for her wedding cake. Oh joy. I am so glad I am only having to do this once. Jess got married in Vegas, so we didn't have to go through all of this with her. 
Scotty is fitting in well with the other animals. He and Cuddles are fast friends and chase each other all over the house. How cute :)
We went and changed banks last week and now we have money that we can't get to easily and it is driving me nuts. We are waiting for the PINs for the cards to come in so they can be activated. We got the cards themselves yesterday. Hope the PINs come today. I hate being broke.
Well, time to get ready to go. Have a great week everyone!
