No autographs, please

I'm about a week and a half late writing about this, but the photo of my mom was just too good not to post. My mom recently (about a week and a half ago, actually) starred in a children's play. Okay, maybe she wasn't exactly the star, but she was certainly the highlight and the comic relief. My mom is in a women's organization, meaning only women are in it, and every year this bunch of ladies puts on a children's play. Usually they adapt a well known fairy tale; this year it was Sleeping Beauty.

I'm not going to lie: I didn't think the play was that fantastic. But Mom said that the kiddos loved it. And I'm not going to lie: I honestly think my mom was the best part. She was really funny. She played the part of the gatekeeper to the castle where everybody had been sleeping for one hundred years. The prince shows up, and my mom's character tries to keep the prince from going to the castle, but then they both go check out the sleeping people. Then once they're inside the castle, my mom's character runs off and checks out the food and grabs a turkey leg and brings it back in to the prince. And it was really funny. Maybe you had to be there. But I hope the picture speaks for itself.

Nom, nom, nom.

After the play, they let the kids come up and check out the stage and the scenery. My dad and another hubby (my parents' neighbor, Fred) were recruited to patrol the stage and make sure the kids didn't mess anything up. Don't they look fierce?

Fred and Russ. . . kicking ass and taking names since 2008

Parent's neighbor? How about the Father of the fabulous Molly McMullen? This is a great picture. They sure do look out of place. And that's the end....
