My nephew and godson, Noah, played Cogsworth in his school play, "Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr."  We saw his performance last week at South Decatur Elementary.  He did a great job!!!  He is seen here having a conversation with Lumiere.

We had a backstage pass and got to hobnob with the top Nob.  Here you can see him out of his boxy clock costume.  No, that's not a real mustache.  ;)   He still has clock hands drawn on his face.  But you can still see what a good looking guy he is.  I got his autograph on my playbill.  And NO, I'm not going to sell it, so don't even ask me! 
Afterward, we went to his house and hung out with him and family to celebrate Noah's 12th birthday.  Now, I need to explain that Noah has chickens and so we try to bombard him with chicken-themed gifts.  One was a T-shirt that says, "I don't have a short attention span, I just...Oh look a chicken!!"  He laughed out loud at that one, so I guess he liked it.  Noah's mom said that it was a very appropriate shirt!  I wonder what she means?

Okay, so here is a pic of the other gift, which allows me to unabashedly show off my latest little artwork (which is the underlying theme of my blog anyway).  It's a chicken bank, which originally was blank white and intended to be decorated, so I couldn't resist doing that for Noah.  Here are the pics.  I'm not sure which he liked more, the bank or the cold, hard cash that was lovingly placed in it.

Thanks to Noah, Alli, Trent, Lori, Mitch, and Joan for a fun afternoon.  And thanks for the farm eggs!!  That will always keep us coming back for more!!
