New Opening, Galleria Commercial

We taped a commercial for the Galleria Mall (or I should say, we showed up for the taping done by PM Digital Group) in which Sierra and Azure appear along with a couple of cute friends.  While there, we taped some B-Roll for the show opening.  So below are the two files:  the mall commercial and the new show opening:

Just finished the 3 commercials for the Chiropractor.  Here they are:
The commercials will be alternated throughout the season.
Here's #3


15 years ago tonight, our beautiful sweet Sierra was born - she came out wiggling and screaming and has been a delight ever since.  WE LOVE YOU!Birthday cake was a circle of ice cream sandwiches and kit-kats!

Sierra and best-friend, Carli

Good-morning Sierra!  Breakfast in bed.

Surprise party at the dance studio.  THANKS Miss Kim!

We had another successful day of taping yesterday!  That's 8 shows taped - only 5 to go - to be finished for the season!  What a day!  These 4 shows were taped at the PM Digital Group studio.  This picture is Sonia, setting some of the back-light.
Bryan worked CONTINUITY for the day.  He timed everything out perfectly!  Glad we had him :)
Show #5 was Chris Maathuis, Channel 8 Sports Director and Anchor; and Ron Gerrard, National Radio Sports 
This picture shows Trip (producer) with all of us.
Sonia does pretty much everything - mic, lights, cameras, teleprompter, make up ....
These pictures are out of show order now, but the next one shows Trip & myself with Lena Prima (Louis Prima's daugher - the Prima family are Las Vegas icons ... he was a major Jazz performer back in the 50s and 60s) and Billy Hinsche - of Dino (Dean Martin's son), Desi (Desi Arnaz & Lucille Ball's son) and Billy fame.  They had several big hits in the mid 60s and started off the success of young kids in music - following them were the Partridge Family, David Cassidy, etc.  Anyway, Billy also was a musician with the Beach Boys for years and years.
This is Bryan with "Mr. Bigfoot" between tapings.
Lauren Wood, KSHP Radio host and Mr. Bigfoot, Comedian
Bry - doing his work
I think this is a cool shot - with the tripod & headphones in the foreground as we get ready to tape the final segment of Show #7 with Darlene Mea and Matisun.
Matisun is a singer/songwriter and author; Darlene is a Promoter/Producer ... both VERY nice people!
Billy Hinsche was really fun to talk with both on and off camera.  A very nice man.
A quick picture of Bryan with Billy Hinsche and Lena Prima.  Cool.
It was a great day of taping.  We also taped a :15-second promo for the show that Las Vegas One will air wherever it fits in.  Next tapings:  the week of April 13th.
I love doing this!

We were surprised with a visit from Trevor, Caci & Jace on our anniversary ... and then to top it off, they took us to an ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Sushi Bar .   For two returned missionaries from Japan, it was a "dream come true" for our palates!

This plate doesn't show any sushi - but that's just because it was one of 3 plates I had on the table at that time!
Caci was a true sport!  Any one of our kids would have chowed down at a sushi bar ... but Caci HATES fish and everything related to fish.  So not only was she a good-sport about going to the Sushi Restuarant, but she even tasted a BEAUTIFUL piece of sashimi - just to make us all happy.  I was certain that once she tasted it she'd be hooked.
She nearly gagged to death.
We came home to sweet notes and "Happy Anniversary" signs up from the other kids.
Thanks kids - for a great celebration!
