Carol and Noelle are at Carol's weekly crop night. Carol has talked Noelle into coming with her to work on a wedding anniversary scrapbook for their parents. They are seated among a gathering of women working on scrapbooking projects. We do not see the other women, but occasionally Carol and Noelle look around the room and engage with these invisible scrapbookers.
At the beginning of the operetta, the two sisters have just arrived and are getting settled at their spot. Carol pulls out her supplies and equipment and talks with some of her fellow scrapbookers, while Noelle, obviously uncomfortable, complains about doing the project. Tiffany (the pianist for the operetta) asks Noelle if this is her first-time scrapbooking, to which Noelle retorts that the scrapbook bug never bit her.
Carol plops down a huge box of family pictures in front of Noelle. Noelle rummages around in the box and pulls out a picture of herself and Carol at age five and age ten. In the photo, they are dressed in matching red sweaters that their mother knit for them. The picture launches Noelle into memories of a childhood song, which she sings aloud to the group. Noelle coaxes Carol into singing with her despite Carol's resistance.
As they finish their impromptu performance, Carol is embarrassed while Noelle basks with the attention. Finally, they settle into working on the scrapbook. As Noelle selects pictures, Carol looks through her cardstock for design ideas. They sing in fond remembrance of all the things that their family did together. Duration: 14:00
