Michael's 1st haircut at a salon

My mom trimmed Michael's hair a month ago but I decided to take him in and have it trimmed even more since he was moving around a lot the 1st time.

getting started....he got his 1st lollipop to keep him occupied

he did such a great job sitting still

the clippers were tickling him on the neck

almost done!

final product! kinda hard to tell...darn setting.
Well Michael looks so handsome with his new haircut...makes him look all grown up.

No Pictures....just words

Ok so yesterday I got my wisdom teeth removed. And let me tell you, being sedated is the way to go....I remember them telling me I was going to get sleepy very fast and then remember waking up and Wayne helping me to he car. I haven't had a lot of pain just some mild soreness...really haven't used much of the pain meds they gave me. I am counting my lucky stars that it hasn't been worse. Kara will be performing in her 1st BIG recital for Denisa's this weekend...can't wait. Potty training with Kara today hasn't been that great! 3....3 accidents..not fun. This really confuses me because Kara will tell you persistantly that she has to go potty when we are out shopping but at home she won't say anything. Why is this? If any of my few readers have been through the potty training escapades before and have any words of wisdom please share! Michael is doing good. He can point to your nose and tell you what it is, he is a climbing monster....just like his sister. Well I better go now, Michael has gotten a frying pan out and is banging it on the floor..oh yeah one more thing, he also will hit his head on whatever is near him when he is upset....WHAT FUN!!!

Summer = Popsicles

Kara and Michael love popsicles! A couple nights a week after dinner we sit outside and enjoy some yummy popsicles! goodyummy yummy
awww.....she actually shared with her brother
...and he dropped it...and of course you can probably guess what happened next..

yes he did pick it up and ate it before we could get to him.....oh well it was bound to happen sometime and isn't there like a 3-5 second rule anyways!?!

My little dancer

Kara had her second dance recital last Sunday. They danced at Saint Patricks Church. She did great and was cute as can be...

My little girl with her make up on for the cameras....good thing this happens only a couple times a year
waiting to dance....she looks kinda worried here...couldn't find me in the audience

waving after being introduced....she kept her hand up as everyone else was introduced too

the dolly dance

this picture is kinda blurry but it speaks volumes about Kara's energy at dance....constantly bouncing and jumping around!

a hip hop version of "If you're happy and you know it..."

that's my girl.....

after the performance she got her very own bag of pink cotton candy!
