1st Grade Luau

Skylar gets pretty excited about anything that has to do with school, but she has been talking about this Luau for weeks. They've been studying the ocean, and worked hard over the last week or so to make homeade grass skirts and leis. They enjoyed a smorgasboard of fruit, cheese, crackers, and other luau style snack foods. I only had time to sneak out of my classroom for a minute to snap a couple of pictures, but they all looked like they were having a super time!

Gymnastics Awards

The girls had their gymnastics show and awards last night just before the storm scare. They both love gymnastics and are trying to decide if they want to continue next year! They're always more excited to think about practicing when they've received their medals and awards.

Despite recital day being rather busy, the kids found a little time in the morning to play together. They absolutely love being together, and could entertain the adults for hours with their playful antics.

What's a lone boy to do among all the girl cousins? Be the daddy, of course! That's the story we're going with anyway!

Grandma Del brought her new dog, Cotton, and the girls couldn't get enough of him.

Sweet little Natalie taking in all the action around her.

Lincoln is a real lover. He LOVES babies, and all the girls. He's quite the ladies man.

My girls and Anastyn eager to take photos in our pajamas. It's a fight to get them to be in pictures when we're all dressed up, but when we're in our pj's and I'm not wearing make-up, they're all about a photo shoot! Go figure:)

Recital 2011

The girls had their dance recital last weekend, and it was so much fun to get to dress them up in their costumes and watch them perform. Their ballet dance was to Owl City's song "Fireflies", and their jazz dance was to "Stayin' Alive" which was definitely their favorite.
Londyn Skylar and her very proud toothless grin!

Thank you to Grammy Tammy, Grandma Del, Nathan, Erin, Anastyn and Natalie for making the trip to come watch what will probably be our last recital!

I'm Back!

So, it's been a while. There are a plethora of reasons for the blogging hiatus, but as school is about to come to an end, I am anxious to get back into the blogging groove for the two of you that check the blog for updates! A lot has happened in the last couple of months, and I'm not even going to begin trying to play catch up right now, but I'm going to leave you with a couple of recent random pics of my three favorite kids. This is a picture of the kids playing in the safe room waiting for a tornado. I swear, this is their favorite time of year! I've never seen anyone so excited about storms coming.

Enjoying a popsicle on a sunny Saturday after playing in the sprinklers. A summer tease....hopefully many swimsuit wearing, patio sitting, popsicle eating days to come!

Over the last couple of months that I've neglected to blog, the girls had a fantastic time in Missouri for Spring Break, we've participated in the Tulsa Heart Walk, sought shelter from crazy OK storms, enjoyed a mother/daughter sleepover, spent sunny days at the park, dyed eggs, baked Easter cookies, had a visit from the Easter Bunny, celebrated the Royal Wedding, helped my mom celebrate her birthday, had a great Mother's Day, finished the soccer season, and I managed to get away for a work trip to Florida. It's been the usual whirlwind of life, and I'm looking forward to a refreshing summer break! We do have the girls' dance recital this weekend, so hopefully I'll have some good pictures to post, and all of my technological devices will be working properly.
