Devree doesn't like to play the "old woman" all of the time but she does get lots of lines and this is one proud mom that knows for a fact that Devree stole the show. She may only have "half expression" but she plays it big. She played Beauty's mother in this version of "Beauty and the Beast". She had to act frightened and she did and she had to play a mom and she did.
Devree said something funny yesterday morning. As only Todd, Dane, Devree and I were at the breakfast table, Todd pulled the pitcher of juice over and it made a grinding sound on the table from dried on food. Todd said "There must be braille on the table". Devree said "Yes it says WET PAINT".
I forgot to tell you one funny thing about Mother's Day. Todd always traced the kids hands when they were little, inside the card and wrote their name and age inside the hand. This Mother's Day Noble traced his hand on the inside of the card and wrote Noble 18 years old!
This week Dane had another wonderful baseball game while Shay went on a Scout campout and Noble was at his last track meet. Noble had to sweat off 3 pounds so he could qualify and still scratched,... poor guy. Todd was ready to go on a teacher's scout campout but one of the boy's dad passed away unexpectedly this week. So in the last couple of months we have had a Mom pass away unexpectedly and leave a 16 year-old daughter and now a Dad that left a 17 year-old daughter and 14 year-old son in our ward. The funeral is Wednesday. It really goes to show you that you never know when your time will come. Make the most out of everyday.
