That Girl!!!

Yesterday afternoon Madeline told me to "Come, quickly! You've GOT to see Margo". As I walked into the living room, this is what I saw. It just so happens that David was walking in the backdoor from work! Margo was singing in nothing but her Minnie Mouse ears! Somehow, I think her sisters may have encouraged her to perform on the coffee table...naked! This child is such a mess!

Dance Recital 2010

Here are my little dancers. Aren't they cute?

Madeline in her clogging costume.

Clogging to "In the Navy".

All the little cloggers.

Backstage on recital day.

Lovin' the camera!

No, she's not shy.....not one bit!

With their clogging instructor, Ms. Kristin, and the Tyndall girls.


With Ms. Dawn....I didn't realize her eyes were closed until after we got home. If so, I certainly would have taken another pic.

With Grandma, Grandpa and Margo.
They did a great job. Now we can take a little break on Tuesdays :-)

Recital Time

It's that time of year again! Here is a picture of Madeline in her very first dance costume three years ago. Her class did a routine to "Little Bo Peep".

Aren't they cute?

The next year was Lydia's first year of dance lessons. She was a daisy. Her class did a routine to the song "Daisy, Daisy".
Madeline in her butterfly costume.

All the pretty little daisies.

Sisters after the 2008 recital.

Last year....Lydia's ballet costume.

Madeline's ballet costume. I thought this one was so pretty.

Posing for the camera.

At dress rehearsal, practicing the tap routine to "Do You Love Me?"

Madeline's class practicing "Rock A Hula".

After the dress rehearsal.
This year's dance recital is on Saturday morning. We have dress rehearsal tonight. That means as soon as I pick them up from school, I've gotta get some food in them and do their hair and makeup and pray they keep their costumes clean. Madeline's already complaining that hers is itchy. Should be a fun afternoon and evening for us. They always love practicing on the "big stage". I hope to get some good pictures of them in this year's costumes. Wish us luck :-)

Catchin' Up

Well, time keeps flying and I keep getting further and further behind in blogging. Here are some snapshots of the past few weeks for our family.
Lydia and Margo after a bath. They are bath time buddies. It's just too crowded with all three in the tub!

Miss Margo is such a little ham. And talking up a storm! She will now tell you that her name is "Mah-do" and not "Baby No-No". She still fondly refers to herself as "baby".

She climbed in the bathroom sink all by herself and was mighty proud!

Check out her piggy-tails. Finally enough hair for them, although it's starting to resemble the JoCo mullet. Probably time for a trim. The piggy tails didn't last long. But at least I got a picture!

Painting!!! She loves to write, color, draw and paint. Wonder who she gets that from?

Lydia has turned out to be quite the little artist. Check out her drawing on their new "chalkboard" that I painted on the playroom wall.

Madeline and Annie just chillin'. I'm pretty sure they were watching iCarly or Hannah Montana!

Last week was spirit week at school. Madeline dressed up as a vet for career day.

Lydia was a dentist!

Lydia's kindergarten class took a field trip to a farm last Friday. Margo and I joined them. Lydia got to feed a calf a bottle!

David ran his second 5K on Saturday. We were there to cheer him on. I'm not sure about his actual time, but I know it was around 25 minutes!

That afternoon we went to the Ham & Yam festival and it was HOT!!!! The girls got to ride the ponies and go through the bouncie houses/inflatables. We watched the pig races, got some good food and then headed home.

We found this shady spot right in front of the ham biscuits! It was a a busy, but fun-filled day. That's my update for now.
For all you fellow bloggers, I just found out about a service that will make a book out of your blog. Go to and check it out. I think I will definitely have to do this since this blog is pretty much the baby book, photo album and scrapbook! Who has time for that? One day, maybe?!?
