Maisy's Spring Recital

I love dance recitals. The costumes, make-up, music, and dancing. I love it all. In May, Maisy had her first big dance recital.

She did a tap and ballet routine. Both to songs from "Mary Poppins".

The tap routine was to "It's A Jolly Holiday with Mary". 

The ballet was to "Chim Chimney"-- it included little brooms and news-boy style hats. Ah-dorable.

Maisy liked dressing up and dancing. But she told me after the show, "it would have been more fun if they had food there".

So with a hungry belly, she did her best. (In my defense, I did pack goldfish for backstage, she just chose not to eat them!) Here are her dance videos. Pretty good for a 3 year old :) who is starving. Lol.

Mother's Day 2013

We were lucky enough to celebrate Mother's Day (about a week late- but who cares!) with both my sisters and my mom. I think this is the first time we have had all of our kids together at once.

It is so fun to see everyone all together.

Afton helped us out by taking some photos with my 'good camera'. 

She liked being 'the photographer' so much, she decided to snap a ton of pictures of anyone who would stand still long enough :) 

Here are Afton's photos. 

It was a wonderful Mother's Day-- we are so lucky to have so many wonderful 'mommas' in our life!

Fun is Good for Marriage

Jeff and I joined Jenn and Jade at Possum Kingdom for a 'parents weekend-away'.

The view was beautiful. 

We were there for 2 nights. We sat by the pool a lot. 

 On Saturday, while the guys played golf, Jenn and I got massages and pedicures.


We had dinner on the patio. The weather was perfect. 

 And after the fun was had, we came back home. That Sunday just happened to be Mother's Day!

And the day Afton lost her other front tooth. :)

Bridging to Brownies

After two years as a Daisy, Afton bridged over to Brownies! We made a few things before the ceremony-- some "brownies" to eat and a sign for the celebration.

The ceremony was held at a near-by park.

 Here is the whole 'gang'. The troop has been together for both Kindergarten and First Grade. All the moms go to the all the meetings to help out... it takes a village!

The troop leaders stood on either both sides of the bridge. Ms. Stephanie on this side and Ms. Diane on the other.

Ready to cross the bridge.

And now they are Brownies!

After the park, the girls went to Ms. Stephanie's house for dinner, dessert, playing and crafting.
Afton and I led the girls in making these 'sit-upons'. Girl Scout tradition! (Maisy helped me with the prep work a few days before the ceremony and even tried out a prototype)

I think Afton is excited to see for what new adventures await her as a Brownie!
