School Dance Festival, Twenty Eleven

May 31, 2011

Every year, the last week of school, there is a dance festival. Every grade learns a crazy dance and then they get to perform it out on the playground for all the parents, siblings, and fellow students.

It is super fun and something they look forward to. Except if you are in the fourth grade and then you have to do a square dance. 
With boys.
And that's lame.
{do people even say lame anymore? probably not.}

Drama, doing a square dance. With a boy.

The pioneer dress that she is wearing is mine. It is the one that I wore when Mark and I went with the Young Women and Young Men on the Trek in Wyoming. The skirt was a little shorter on me but not by much. Drama is getting to old and big for my taste. Where did my little baby girl go?

Pooh Bear, dancing to High School Musical. She didn't know I was there, even though I yelled at her several times. Oh well, I have the pictures to prove that I was, in fact, there.

A Few Things I Forgot to Mention...

Last night I was in such a hurry to get the super cute pictures of my kids online that I forgot a few details...

If you want to see all the photo's that Foto Fly took I have an online gallery and password, email me or leave a comment and I will send it to you. 

Also, if you want prints {grandma's} I can order prints from the studio at $3 a sheet until Friday. After that they're $4 a sheet. A sheet has the following configurations:

1 - 8x10
8 wallets
4 - 3.5x5
3 - 4x6
2 - 5x7
1 - 5x7 and 4 wallets
1 5x7 and 2 3.5 x 5

I also uploaded them to Shutterfly if you prefer.

As a side note - these are the girl's Easter dresses but I didn't have time before church on Easter to take pictures. These are way cuter than any I would have taken in the 30 second time window I had before church.

And one more just for fun....

Okay, maybe one more....

Beautiful Inside and Out

So, if you didn't know, Pooh Bear has chosen to be baptized. To become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She is so, so excited. I just can't tell you how excited she is. 

Traditionally, at the baptism there is a cute photo of the baptize-ie. Originally I was going to take the photo myself, 'cause, you know, I have a camera. Last minute, like 2 pm yesterday, I was looking at my "to do" list & decided that I didn't have time to do this. So I lucked out and slipped into a coveted spot at Foto Fly (super awesome studio, not to far from our house) this afternoon.  Here are the amazing results. And I kid you not, I almost started crying when I was at the studio watching the slide show of the photos captured today.......

 She totally got her glare on in this photo... I love it!

And since I went to ALL that trouble to schedule a sitting, I made the others get all fancied up and made them act happy and cute... it was hard work, I tell you.

And one more of Miss Sass-o-frass!

Pooh Bear's baptism is Saturday, June 4th at 11:30 am. You are invited to share this amazing day with her!

Meet the newest member of our family....


Buddy is Drama's birthday present. Drama will be 10 this year. 10! Where did the time go?

 Buddy is a Chiwawa and Shih tzu mix so he will not get very big. He's a hit with everyone.

{Mark and I tried very hard to name him Javi, after RSL player  #11 Javier Morales, who's ankle was broken in a brutal tackle two weeks ago. But we were out voted and {not so} gracefully conceded defeat. We were told Javi could be his nickname. So, maybe I'll add his picture to the side bar with his nickname......hmmm.}
