{Catching Up...}

AT&T finally came through!! We are now able to sit INSIDE our house, and I don't have to get another mosquito bite from sitting outside trying to get a signal! Hallelujah!

This is gonna be a long post, so grab a snack, preferably chocolate. :)

The many expressions that Mike has.... Lovely, Mike, just lovely

Take 2 ... still not perfect
forcing a smile from Daddy.... we'll never get a great picture from him

Last Saturday we took the girls to a Highland Dance competition in Salado, TX. It was THE largest competition we have ever been to, by far. There was a private school in Houston that has Highland Dance as part of its curriculum, and there were easily over 50 girls dancing from that school, if not more. Since Maddie was being a boo-hoo baby that morning, she didn't dance. Augh! She started freaking out when we arrived, and said she didn't want to dance, and was almost hysterical. Then Mike told her "fine, I'm not allowing you to dance". Little Miss Stinker who is just like her Momma.... is very irritated when someone tells her she can't do something, so she said "Oh yes I want to dance now!". This went on for about 30 minutes. UGH Long story short, Katie did only 3 dances, as one of her reels she only learned once, and she didn't think she could do it by memory well. She did her Fling & her Sword Dance perfectly, and did a complete spill on the dance floor in her Seann Trius.... there was a huge gap in between the floor, that was held together by duct tape. You would've thought the organizer or judge would've thought something was up by the time the 5th girl took a big splat. Nope... so she was disqualified.

I will not show all the stupid pictures Maddie & I had...

These girls were AWESOME dancers, so it was great competition for Katie to be in. She placed a 3rd in her fling, and a 5th in her Swords... very low for her, but hey, she got a 3rd! I think that was our last competition for a long, long time. :(

Come on kid! A decent picture of me and you're not smiling?

I have found a lady who teaches HDance for recreation only once a month, and it is located only a few miles from our house, so we lucked out. We went for the first time last Tuesday, and the girls loved it. Yay!

Maddie & Miss Lilly.... soccer girl & angel

Halloween was fun, but quiet for us. We joined the neighborhood party for a few hours, then we took off with Lilly (Maddie's BFF) and her mom & little brother. I guess there are these "things" cuchoo something that are made out of egg shells, confetti & tissue paper. You crack them over a person's head, and it goes all over the place (the confetti does). The girls had a blast experiencing with these.

Funny story about this picture... the tickets to the games were supposed to be a quarter a piece. We arrive, and they're a dollar instead. I only brought $3 with me, figuring they would get enough to play with w/ $3.00. Well, we bought 3 tickets, and Katie used one of those tickets on these stupid boxes..... I had a whole bunch at home she could've played in if I knew how happy it made her. ::rolling eyes::

Jacob was like... all over Katie the entire night. :)


  1. thanks for the updated.
    SO the box was a game?

  2. So, who is this Jacob? hahah, Katie is soooo hitting that age-- hahah:) Sounds like you guys had a good time, I'm glad you found a Hdance teacher close, especially if the girls like it so much.
