Wish her luck!

Julia drew this picture of herself (and some other little person next to her). She's wearing her acro costume. I just love her pictures! So tomorrow we leave for the weekend for her very first dance competition. I really hope she has a great time and it's a positive experience for her! So go ahead...wish her luck!!!

Who is Sick & Who is Six?

Who's sick? My poor Julia. She tested positive for the flu. She was down and out for 6 days but finally turned the corner and appears to be on the mend. And thank goodness just in time for her very first dance competition this weekend! She missed a dress rehearsal yesterday but I think she knows the dance well enough by now. I'm just praying that her chest congestion and cough get better soon. She went back to school today. The other two have been sneezing and blowing their noses. I hope it's not the flu again.

Who's six? My baby girl Gianna! Six!! Wow!! How did that happen?

What a day she had yesterday! We went to dinner at Uno where the kids got to make their own pizzas. Then it was off to Chuck E Cheese to play games! After we had a party with cake and her favorite ice cream to finish off the day. She got lots and lots of new stuffed friends and a big girl bike. Our girl has the biggest personality and just loves her little life.

March 18th

My Dad would have turned 79 a few days ago. We always did fun things to celebrate my Dad's birthday. So this year, the family went to dinner and then back to Kimmy's house to watch some old family movies starring Pops himself. We had a lot of laughs...and cake...and ice celebrate the wonderful husband, father and Pops he was. I miss him terribly. But I have such wonderful memories. How can I complain about sharing 45 wonderful years of my life with him?

Quote of the day

"I love my toys. They give me such good love", Gianna said as she was squeezing her stuffed animals.

Father Daughter Dance

The girls were so excited! It was Gianna's first Father Daughter dance...

Julia picked out her dress weeks ago...

And Gianna...well...she wore one of Julia's old dresses. She's not really a dress-up-kind-of-girl.

They looked so beautiful tonight...

Just so so sweet....

My little artist

Julia brought this home from school yesterday...

I think it's wonderful for just 8 years old!

Nicholas went on a field trip today to the "Little Red Schoolhouse". They had to dress in colonial times. He looked so cute going off to school this morning and he didn't mind wearing this costume one bit!

Sister Kim celebrated the big 5-0 this weekend! We had lots of fun celebrating right along with her!

I don't know who likes to snuggle more than my boy....
