Ballroom Boy

There was a time when Max was pretty terrified of girls. I never thought when I encouraged him to participate in Ballroom last year that it was something that would actually stick. This is Max at his first Ballroom competition. What a Stud! Way to GO Max! He really is such a stud out there on the floor. He is getting really good. If he wasn't so darn busy concentrating, you would know that he really is having a good time! And.. and.. he isn't so terrified of girls anymore. That boy will dance with anyone.

Lola and Hershey!

Sometimes I wonder about these two. They have this Love-Hate relationship thing going on. Hershey has all these hiding places all over our house.. under beds.. under the ottoman .. under covers .. pretty much any place Lola can't get to her. Lola LOVES her Hersh! And I am pretty sure that Hersh loves her back. I found Hershey practically on top of her the other night when I was peeking in on the children. It is beyond me that Lola can sleep through this. One thing I know for sure Lola would be a lonely girl with out her Hershey. !Best Friends!

My Bug had her first day of primary. Go Buggy! Lo*Bug is growing up so fast.. Do younger children in the family grow up faster?? It seems like it was just yesterday and I was in the hospital with her. I just want to push stop on her stopwatch of life. Stop growing up! She is a tough cookie most days but to say she has me wrapped around her little finger is an understatement.

We talked all week about her going to primary. She would tell me, "Mom, I am so nervous of primary.."  or "Mom, I am so scared." We would talk all about what she should expect and how fun it would be. She still cried. Good thing her teacher picked her up put her on her lap and gave her extra teacher love. It worked! 
These pictures are after I picked Lola up. She was so excited. She loved loved her teacher. She would Not.. could NOT stop running around. Lola showing off her picture.
This is her "Happy.. I'm going to love primary face!"
Happy girl = Happy Mom!

Who knew?

Home depot has the cutest little program for kids.. seriously! Who knew? We have gone a couple times and each time it has been awesome. This month was a bird house. Last month a picture frame. They use a real hammer and nails, then head to the paint table. Lola was pretty intense about it. She was doing.. all by herself. The children all love it. Well.. except Max skipped out this time. 
I guess he is getting too cool these days.. {We're working on that.}
 Barrett, Lola and Alexander hard at work. 
 Grace. She is a perfectionist for sure. 
I can not for anything get Lola to pose for a picture these days. She sees that camera come out and she turns on the wild woman. 
  Auntie Nana even joined us for fun Home Depot time. She is such a fun Auntie. Always up for a good time.
 If you are interested, Home depot craft classes are once a month, the first Saturday in the morning. 
Next month is a letter holder. We are so there. :)
