Broadway night, Les Miserables

Well, it really has been a long time since I've posted.  The past few months have been hectic to say the least. Ontario had a Provincial election last week and for four weeks prior to that I worked in the election office as a recruiter. I do this every election.  It is four weeks of long hours and hard work, but it's worth is in the end. (More on that later).

Our finale of the Broadway event went off really well. Wendell was Jean Valjean, Rebekah played Cosette and Andrew & I were in the chorus (Andrew was the flag waver as well as singing!)   Here is a photo. I had been through makeup already, but Wendell hadn't. They did a great makeup job on him and he looked so old and sick!

Wendell let his hair grow and also grew a beard for this performance. I don't know who was more anxious for him to shave it off - him or me!!  But it did add to the character though.
I don't have any with the kids yet as I didn't take my camera, so am waiting for Rebekah to send me some shots.

It was a lot of fun to do and I was very proud of my husband and daughter for their performances.  Wendell nailed it and so did Rebekah!!!

So regarding the election work.......the money earned from it is paying for a two week trip to England in October/November, for our anniversary.  We always go to Maine for our anniversary, as many of you will know, but we found a little fisherman's cottage on the Yorkshire coast (in Staithes) online a year or so ago and said that one day we would love to go for our anniverary. Well this is the year!! We also have a place booked for a couple of nights in Derbyshire and we will also stay with family.  We are so excited about this and feel like a couple of kids.  We are busy planning the itinerary already!  Of course, our two weeks in Maine at the end of August comes first.  Can't wait to see Norah on the beach this year!!
