Let Them Eat Cake! (And, Ice Cream!)

I recently posted to Facebook these super-fun photos of our February's dessert night, but since I know Grandma and Grandpa don't  do Facebook, and since they are featured so darlingly in some of these photos, I am posting them here as well.

We had over eight kinds of cake, John and Gail's famous homemade ice cream, and tons and tons of much-adored friends and family on this fabulous evening. 

Dave and I just love doing these dessert nights and only hope that it isn't a big nuisance to those we invite!

The end.

The Importance of Being Earnest and the Importance of Being Aldolpho

On Valentine's Day evening, I monopolized these lovely people and their time and dragged them out to dine at the hipster Black Sheep Cafe in Provo, then made them suffer through my "Where's Aldolpho" rigamarole. But, speaking of Aldolpho, where is that guy? Can you spot him?

Oh my heck! I just now noticed the photo bomber in the background.
Bwhahahahahahaha! So funny!

After just about missing the opening curtain (no curtain, but you know what I mean) because of the incredibly languid service at the restaurant (ahem), we got into our seats for a fun evening of fine theater just in the nick of time. And, I mean, JUST in the nick of time. In fact, I think we held up the production for just a nick of time. But, goodness, that restaurant was s-l-o-o-o-o-o-w. Anywho, "The Importance of Being Earnest" was hilarious, and now we have decided that watching the movie version starring Colin Firth (one of my faves!) and Rupert Everett (another of my faves!) is a must. 

Grandma and Grandpa were already out in the foyer when I insisted that we snap a pic. I think they saw their chance to make a clean getaway before I accosted some stranger to take our picture, but poor everybody else had to endure this bit of nonsense :)

Pizzeria de Sagersotini

A couple of weeks ago, Sean and his roommates charmed their dates into coming to our home to make homemade pizzas and watch one of our family's very, very most favorite movies. (See if you can guess the movie from the pic below!)

This was such a stellar crowd to have hanging out at our home, and I'm pretty darn tootin' sure that Dave and I had more fun that night as they did. 

I did feel sort of bad for the two couples who baked their pizzas in our bottom oven. Uhhhh, we've always had a little bit of a problem with that oven as it sometimes turns itself off if you fiddle with the top oven. These two couples tried to graciously smile through choking down their gloppy, gooey, half-baked pizza crust, but I knew better. Especially when one of the guys basically coughed up a hairball. Just kidding about that last part. It was actually one of the girls who coughed up the hairball. Ha! jk! jk!

FYI: This little guitar is Christian's. 

Further FYI: Christian received it when he was just a little feller, um, not recently.

Further FYI: Christian never really learned how to play it despite those always-helpful colorful dots.

My favorite line from this movie (and Sean can sound EXACTLY like Ryan O'Neal when he quotes it): 

"Well, there's not much to see actually, we're inside a Chinese dragon."
--Howard Bannister

Gosh, I love that.
