Dance Recital 2014

We had a fantastic year of dance and wrapped it up with a wonderful recital.  As a teacher and a mom this is one of my favorite things to look forward to.  All the months of practice and lights are on you!  The girls all did wonderful.  So proud of how they are growing and respecting their talents.

Camp Seven: Ayla is growing up

My sweet, tender hearted, little lady turned seven May 8.
Not sure how or when it happened but she is growing up.  It happened to be "nerd day" at school so how fun to dress up on your birthday?  Right!?

Surprised my lady with picking her up from school for lunch at the park... and her buddies came too!

i love these girls dearly!

We celebrated that weekend with a small "camping" party. It was a gloomy, wet day so we camped out indoors.  Ate, sang, painted tee shirts & birdhouses, played in tents and when the weather died down we roasted smores!  

Looking back on the seven years of your life Ayla I can't believe it has gone so fast.  I remember  you being so little.  You were calm & cautious, just as you are now.  But now with a bit of spunk and a bigger heart.  
You love your friends, church, dance, and tumbling.  Your favorite color is blue & purple.  You are finishing your first year of kindergarten- learning to read and becoming a confident learner.  
Thank you for being my sweet girl, my listener, my cuddler.
I love you more than words can express.

Leah Hope is FIVE

Leah seems like she has been five since the day she was born.  She is a mature, sweet, silly little thing!  We celebrated by throwing her first friend party.  It was a frozen success!

For the first time in forever, Leah turns 5

Leah is smart.  
She completed her first year of preschool.  Knows all her upper and lower case letters.
Can count beyond 30.  Is ready for PreK next year!

Leah loves dance class, soccer, and tumbling.

Leah's favorite foods are alfredo, cheese, salad, pizza and cuties.

Leah's favorite color is purple.

Leah is a light.  She is a great friend, very loyal.  Her best friends are Ella, Ava, & Bella.  She is (and always has been) big- loves big, cries big.  She loves with her whole heart. 

Leah we are so proud of you.  You are a light in my life.  Thank you for always being my sweet, sassy girl.  Mommy loves you dearly.

Guess what?  My parents are tying the knot.

It was a gorgeous day to celebrate.  My big brother Mitch married his best friend Megan.  Abe loves his uncle Mitch as you can see.  And my nephew Parker looks so grown up and handsome.
