SNOOPY!!


We had a very fun, exciting and exhausting weekend.
Family and friends all came out to support Jillie and Reagan in their musical production.
Grammie G flew in from Colorado.
Grandma & Papa drove in from Michigan.
Cousins from Colorado Danny, Jake, and Kyle flew in with Grammie G too.
Many good friends from around here came to the show too...
the Lewis'...

the Christensens...

as well as the Manzanares', Marielle Melling, the Warren's, Corinne and Amanda. The England's and Baroldy's were there of course since their kids were in the show too.

The girls did a great job. It was a real success and real learning experience for both of them. We are so proud of their hard work and confidence.

So far I can only post some footage from the first night. Jillie's mic wasn't working well and I wasn't always sure where to find Reagan in the chorus, so the video could be better. It may take a while for me to figure out how to edit segments out of the second show though so I'll just post some from Friday night.

Presenting Snoopy!!
Starring Jillie as Peppermint Patty and Reagan as a chorus member.

In this clip Jillie is in green (don't ask me why they decided Patty should be in a dress?!) Reagan can be seen occasionally behind Jillie's right shoulder.

In this scene I went back and forth to see each girl sing...
(Reagan's in the front row, 2nd from the end.)

And finally the song Poor Sweet Baby that Jillie sings all by herself to "Chuck". She is the only girl who had a solo song! She got even better laughs and applause on Saturday when her mic was working!





Can you tell we are so proud of and impressed by our girls?
We are!

Wow, that is quite the show of support from family and friends! The girls should feel so loved just from that!

AAAHHHHH!!!!!! JIllie kissed a BOY!!! In front of a WHOLE audience! And I wasn't there to scream!! Uggg.....

Great performances by BOTH girls! So wish we could have been there. Well done!

Nikki- have you tried Picasa for film editing? It is pretty easy. I think you might already have it. Good luck!

See you in 2 days!

Wow! Soo proud and impressed by my nieces! I'm so dumb and 'Poor Sweet baby' always makes me cry. NO idea why. Jillie and Reagan did amazing! Can't wait to see them in future performances! SOOOO wish we could have been there! I agree with Holly I can't believe that Jillie KISSED A BOY and we weren't there to scream! I told Jillie to belt it out for her Aunt Sunny who was never as brave as her! She certainly did!
