Turner Classic Weekend

This weekend I watched this classic:

I really like some good, classic movies. It they are musicals, that's the cherry on top. "The Pajama Game" is no exception. Michael had some extra work shifts this weekend so I watched what I knew I could never get him to watch. A cheesy musical, but I love it!

We also had Keith and Tricia stay the night with us so we had some real pajama friends!

Tricia and I enjoyed some of the movie while Keith was zonked out in the other room and Michael was at work! I'm thinking this should become a tradition!

Any classic suggestions?

It's that time of year again...

*Thank you for capturing this moment.

It's parent teacher conference time. That means I get to school at about 8 AM teach until 3:15. Have conferences start at 3:20 PM. 10 min. conferences per student and leave school about 8:30 PM. It's a very long day. Fortunately, my conferences go well for the most part. The parents are usually very supportive and encouraging. I am just left drained at the end of the night. Bless the person who decided the day after conferences is a furlough day.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 end of an era...

Today my Bobby died. He had cancer. It is a sad day at the Ostler home. For a dog that would leave stolen food from our kitchen under my pillows, he really was a good dog. It's not going to be the same at my family's house. It really is an end of an era.

Sunrise, sunset...

Wasn't it yesterday when this guy (the one on the left) was my baby brother?  

Now, he's a twelve year old boy who is honoring his priesthood, playing church basketball (along with way too many other sports), and about to graduate from elementary school!  He is such a good person. When did this all happen? Well, he officially turned twelve a month ago.  I'm just terribly slow.  However, I really am feeling like time is flying by.  
Will sure did change the dynamics of our family when he came along, but what a change for the better.  We always joked that with 4 older sisters he would grow up to be tough but sensitive.  I'd say he's turning out mighty fine for a young, hansome man.
