Ballet Photo

Pretty Princesses waiting for their performance!
From left, Taylen, Ruby and Ava(who's tu-tu is entirely too high!)

Fairy Tale Ballet

Ava started her first dance class called Fairy Tale Ballet. Every week they learn a new dance about a new Princess Fairy Tale and it is so cute! They get to dress up and dance... What little girl would not be in heaven!? Her two favorite friends, Ruby and Taylen are in her class. Taylen is the tiny one(far left) singing and doing her own thing, Ava is next to her, then another little girl, then Ruby in purple. Ruby is quite the dancer, I might add. Her little sister Sadie just had to join in there at the end. Poor thing just wanted to dance with the big girls! Click on the link to watch the performance. Sorry, I can't get it to show up here because it is video from Carrie(who was prepared anad had her camera when I forgot mine!)

School's Out for-EVER!

Annie, Me, Brody, Zach and Aimee

Do you like Zach's pretty flower? He was kind of considered the prankster of his class, and there was a girl who always wore a huge flower in her hair for clinicals and she got in touble for it, so Zach decided to wear one to the pinning ceremony...
Her hair caught fire during the pledge!

We couldn't get a good pic of all of us....

Ok, so it's not out forever, but for this particular degree, it is finished! I am sure this video will be so fun for all of you to watch. Really, it's for Zach's parents in Africa, because they really wished they could see this. I think they are almost as proud of Zach as I am. When the students came walking in, it was all I could do to not ball like a baby! It's been a long road and I am just sooo happy that this leg of it is done. It will be so nice to have Zach around more, and not have him so stressed and busy all the time. We are so proud of him!

Kids say the darndest things!

Ava has said some cute things lately, and she is just growing up so fast that I have to put them down so we don't forget them...

After about 2 weeks being a Sunbeam, I asked her if she liked being a Sunbeam. She said, "No, I wanna be a Twinkle, twinkle Little Star."

I asked her who Joseph Smith is (she has been watching her "Living Scriptures" Movies-thanks Annie!) and she said, "Josep Smif a Poppet, an I wanna see him at Disneyland!"

She has eczema on her bum and legs, and the other day she climbed into bed with us and said, "Daddy, I have eggs on my bum!"

I watch a little boy named Nicky, and he has a speech delay and he is really hard to understand. Sometimes I say, "What the heck are you saying?" We were driving somewhere the other day and Nicky was trying to tell her something, and she said, "Nicky, what da heck you say?" Oops.

After watching Cinderella the other day she said, "Mommy, I want to have wonderful dreams." and later, "I am so happy."

All my posts have been about Ava, and my sweet little boy gets no love, so I just have to show how cute Brody is in the swing for the first time! He loved it! He was giggling like crazy, and then we turned the camera on and he was so quiet! So you missed the good giggles, sorry. But he is still the cutest (and sweetest) baby ever!

Zach, my brother David and I took the kids to McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale a few weeks ago. They can ride the train, the carousel, and play in the various playground areas till their little hearts content! It was so fun!
