Friday night was our last Band Festival. It was soooo good. Our band was awesome! Kyle met up with Ashley, a friend that lives within our stake. She is such a cutie and always so friendly. Their band is huge and did some really interesting things.
This is a shot of our entire band. Do you see Kyle over there towards the left???
I've had a fun year as a band mom. I've made some great new "band mom" friends and we have laughed WAY too much. I'll be driving down the road and just start laughing at things that have gone on. We've had a little too much fun this year!

I made this carmel popcorn for a snack at the class and boy, was it a hit. I haven't made it for years. I'm hoping my sister-in-law won't mind me sharing her recipe.
WENDY'S CARMEL POPCORN
1 cup butter
2 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
Cook to soft ball stage (Kari cooks to 225 degrees only). Pour over about 8 quarts of popcorn. I like to put out some wax paper and drop pieces on it and let it cool this way before returning it to the bowl. This way, it is easy to get to in the bowl later. This recipe makes a BIG tupperware bowl full. It is best on the first day. The second day it goes a little sugary. It still tastes okay, but not quite as good.

I actually started on my Christmas cards yesterday during General Conference! That is a first for me (doing them this early, I mean). Last year I didn't even do any. That is also a first, since I became a stamper 14 years ago. I felt awful about it, and have gotten several lectures from people who usually receive them, but my body just couldn't do them. I figured if I start now, I'll be able to handle it!

This is a shot of the band marching in. They do such a great job. I love hearing and seeing them!
Kyle is the one to the right of the tuba.
This is Zach's first year marching. Here you see the middle school kids. They are kind of squished together!
Zach is a little blurry. Oops! This is his first year doing percussion. He started on saxophone last year, but is liking this much better. His shoulders really hurt by the time he was done though! EDIT: 10-6-08 This morning Zach has bruises on this thighs from the snare!
Cody was on "official police business" with his police explorer group for the day. However, each time we saw him, there seemed to be nothing official or police-like about it. Hmmm.

As Brandon and I were walking around trying to be everywhere we needed to be this afternoon, we were talking about last year's festival. It was very different because nearly my whole family was here visiting for Brandon's baptism the day before. I can't believe it has been a year since they were here! That was such a fun time. I hope they'll be able to come out again, but I know how hard that is with soooo many little ones. We'll be here when you're ready......or any other family that would like to visit for that matter! ;)
