Dance Class

We are giving Dance a chance. Last night was the first night for both Abbe and Tyler. Abbe's class is one full hour and consists of ballet and tumble. She wasn't interested at first, but toward the end, she couldn't contain herself. We immediately left there and shopped for a tu-tu, tights, and ballet slippers. It's funny cause there was one other dark haired little girl there. She had a purple tu-tu and her hair in pig-tails. Well, Abbe had to have the purple tu-tu at the store last night, and guess who has her hair in pig-tails today? Funny how this begins at such a young age.

Tyler seemed to enjoy his class as well. He did rough and tough tumble for 45 minutes (great btw) and a hip-hop class for 30 minutes.

We are starting to get busy again! How will we do it when the girls get bigger and have more activities?

You have new Picture Mail!

look closely.. Tyler in dance class.

Thanks Old Lady!

Abbe Mae is the middle child. She's full of personality, smiles, sweet poses, and laughter. Very mild mannered and can pretty much go with the flow on almost anything. I've given her some independance by reminding her that she is a big girl. Big girls help mommy. Big girls go pee and poop on the potty. Big girls don't fight. Olivia is the baby. Babies wear diapers. Babies don't know how to share just yet. Babies are still learning to control their hands and don't always mean to hit. And Mommy, well she's the old lady. That lipstick is really for mommy, the old lady. That face lotion isn't good for big girls, it's really for old ladies.

I should've known better.

At Publix, a nicer, older lady helped up load up our cart. The whole time she was commenting on how well-behaved the girls were. She smiled and said in her sweetest country voice, "Well if that little dark headed curly haired girl isn't just the cutest thang I've ever seen! Bless her heart!" as she handed Abbe a balloon. Abbe gleafully gasped, "Thanks OLD LADY!!!"

High School Musical

This show has been a big hit in my house for a while now. Tyler was counting down the days to the High School Musical II premier last Friday. Both him and Abbe dance around and sing like they are part of the show.

I caught my first glimpse of HSMII last night on Disney while they were watching it again. It's a bit dorky, to say the least. I was surprised how entranced my children were with this show. I hear it's like the "Grease" of their day.

Either way, I just bought tickets to see High School Musical on Ice on 9/15. The kids don't know about it yet, I'm probably just going to load them up and take them downtown and surprise them. It should be fun for them, but pure torture for me. Maybe Jason would like to go???

Few Updates!

First - as you may or may not know, I did win the People.com makeover contest!!! I was an amazing transformation, but I'm waiting to post details about it until September 14th-ish when the article comes out. Thanks EVERYONE for supporting me and getting your friends and family to support me.

Jason is out of town this week, it's hot as hell still (103 degrees today) and because of the heat, schools have closed early all week. Not fun.

My brother is all set up in LA and I'm itching to get out there. But we've got so much going on the next few months with travel, Disney World, and the holidys so we'll see what happens.

Kids are good. Tyler's started second grade, Abbe starts her school in September and then it'll be me and the Diva Baby around the house. Olivia is so strong willed, it's wild.

I'll post more info about the contest soon - I promise!!
