......to end Spring Break. Michael is now walking pretty much everywhere. This morning he kept messing with one of my indoor garden statues. Just as I got over to him he dropped it on his foot and ripped the toe nail off of his big toe! Luckily daddy was home and got it all bandaged up and off we went to Urgent Care. They took x-rays, thank goodness nothing was broke. So now Michael is sportin a nice big band-aide on his foot. He was a good sport and didn't cry much while we were there.
We had a great Easter at my parent's house. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins and hunting eggs! Michael hunted plastic eggs while Kara finally got to hunt the "real" ones with the big kids."Our Family Picture" aren't they cute?!?! Papa working hard pushing both on the swings
Michael loves to swing... ....and now he loves the slide Kara and Trevor hunting Michael still didn't get the idea that you had to pick the eggs up and put them in your basket.....next year he will be a pro Papa letting Michael play with the wind chime silly boy
Hey mom......watch the bubbles!!
Kara spots an egg..........she got it!! ...so proud of her find!
Chelsea, Scarlett, Trevor, Kara, & Michael .....at the end of the egg hunt
....is so into putting things into his mouth. Seriously, it doesn't matter what it is, if he can pick it up the first place it goes is to his mouth. He is really into getting his sister's toys to drool all over, being very careful not to do it while she is watching!! If she sees him with any of her toys it turns into a screaming fit on both ends. I would have to say he is teething once again and we have been keeping an eye out for the 8th tooth to appear! poor Strawberry Shortcake doesn't stand a chance against Michael's drool
she's hanging on for dear life!
so after Strawberry Shortcake Michael moved onto a carrot that goes in Kara's play kitchen
Michael was safe drooling on Kara's prized toys because his sister was safe and sound asleep on the back of the couch.....
....yes my friends, she often falls asleep in the strangest of places. I believe on this night she was pretending to be a kitty cat!
So Kara has been going to Denisa's School of Dance for 5 weeks now and lets just say based on her behavior in class I have been very worried about her. During practice she is constantly running back and forth between the group and me......lets just say she has a very, very, very small attention span! Last week got better, she actually stayed out there for the entire warm-up routine.....but then she got a time out during the bunny dance.
Anyways.....today was her very first "mini" recital at the mall in front of the Easter Bunny. I wasn't sure how she was going to do.
We met the group on the mall and walked to the center court with the Easter Bunny and let me just say she was awesome. She was timid at first but was trying hard to make all the moves. I was so very proud of my "little dancer" that I had to fight back the tears!!
Here are some pics from the performance....enjoy!
