I love my sweet Nicholas.  He holds my hand, hugs me and tells me at least 20 times a day that he loves me.  And...he is in 5th grade and STILL asks for a hug before he gets on the front of his friends!  That's my lovable boy!!! 

I love my precious Julia.  She is my mini me and I know she loves her Mama to the core.  We have our secrets.  We have our own language.  We have our own private jokes.  How I love my Julia Rose.

I love my little Gianna Mae.  She knows exactly how to make me smile.  She knows exactly what to say or what faces to make that gets me every single time.  She loves her Mama.  That I know for sure.

I love my Daniel.  I think it's truly remarkable how he is still by my side after nearly 20 years of marriage.  He loves me.  He gets me and I get him.  It's so comforting to know he is in charge of our little family. 

How lucky am I?

Sleeping Beauty

Julia's ballet school performed Sleeping Beauty this weekend.  Julia danced the role of one of the Pied Piper children.  She was wonderful!  Julia's ballet teacher danced the role of Aurora (video of Miss Heather...formally a principal dancer with Festival Ballet...from dress rehearsal below).  She is a gorgeous dancer.  How lucky is Julia to have her as a teacher!!

Turn it Up

What a day for Julia!!  She placed 1st overall in the junior solo division today!  (And that was out of 56 solos!!!)  She had the most AMAZING performance today!!  She was exquisite! 

And Gianna did great today too!  She was so happy with her picture!  Last competition I got this picture but she was looking down and her feet weren't pointed.  So this time, she fixed it just so she could get this picture!!!  She told me to put it on the fridge.  Of course I will!!  She didn't even need to ask.  My baby girl did wonderful today too.  What a day!!!
