Razzle Dazzle 'em!

(Isabel is the one in the middle one knee)

My baby had her dance recital this past saturday, and she was
F A N T A S T I C!!!! and I'm not just saying that because she's my daughter.... well yeah I am!

She had 4 dance routines this year!!! Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Hip/Hop and she did great at all of them! I can not tell you how proud I was to see her up on that stage and see how far her years of dance have brought her! I can't believe she has been dancing for the last 6 years and its amazing to see how far she has come.
From my cute little rose petal in her first recital dancing to Beauty and the Beast....

Isn't she adorable! This has got to be my absolute favorite picture of my baby girl EVER!

I can't believe how time flies... I can remember her dance... jump big, jump skinny, jump big, jump skinny....

I was gonna throw some video clips on here, but I taped the entire dance (all 4 of them)... so you will have to make do with pics.

Ok, so I was gonna post more pics, but stupid stupid blogger is being a pain in my arse and it keeps freezing. So to avoid throwing my laptop out the window I am only posting these pics for now.
Hopefully later, blogger will cooperate and let me post more pics. So for now... this is it.

I'm here... I'm here....

Soooooo, I've been slacking in the way of posts lately.... but I've saved you a few weeks of nothing new.

NOW I have some news for you.... so let me get you caught up.

First off, I was laid off from my job a week ago thursday. Sucks... I was not ready for the news and was hoping to be able to work until right before having the baby so as to not be strapped for cash, as I knew I would be. Maternity leave had me in a panic... since I would have NO income for as long as I would be out. So, I am taking unemployment as a blessing since now I will have income and the opportunity to be home with my child until at least January!

I spent all last week cleaning and resting. I was able to catch up on house work that was VERY far behind... I think I was about 2 weeks behind on laundry. Not good, but now I am not so behind, I just have our laundry to do, the kids clothes is finally washed and put away... YEA me!

I also was able to finish the baby sweater, hat and bootie set that I have been working on for three months now. Woooo Hoooo me!!! I am so proud of myself, this is the first complete knit set I have ever made, finished and am proud to show off. Wanna see??? I know you do... and if you don't... to bad, I'm posting pics anyways.

Nice.. right??? I'm very proud of myself.
So.... that's it for right now. I'll post a little more later.... I gotta upload more pics then I'll update you later!

7 months

OMG I look like I swallowed a beach ball!
BUT on the up side... I only have 10 weeks left!


business is apparently good

Apparently I am in the wrong line of work. Why?? you ask... well, the tooth fairy paid a visit to Tyler last night, and she left $5!!! I never got that much for anyone tooth, never mind the first.

I need to start collecting teeth. Apparently it is very lucrative and leaves a great deal of disposable income that one can just "give" away or in exchange for useless items, such as teeth.
But he was very grateful, and quickly put his money into his piggy bank! Without me having to say a word, I love that he is so thrifty!
I love this stage in life when they are still so innocent and strongly believe in intangibles like fairies and Santa. Why can't they just stay like that forever???
Now I'm off to go collect some teeth.... just kidding.
