I love Little Red's vibratto in the phrase, "What big teeth you have!" (for fear)
Carmen was the costume designer/provider (thanks Aunt Christy), writer, composer, director, and star of the 4th grade opera project. And why not with a name like that?
She was in her glory, and I sincerely hope this has made up for her having to stay home sick when she held the coveted role of the Gingerbread Boy back in 1st grade.
