Saturday Night Dance Recital

We sat on the Easter Bunny's lap -- I had no idea that he was going to be there... which meant no pre-planning the outfits because I have the cutest yellow Easter dresses, but it all worked out okay. I got a compliment from a stranger on how cute their outfits were so I guess it looked like I planned it that way.
Kylie was so excited even while we were standing in line, she just kept saying: "It's a real bunny!" (Compared to a fake one???) I'm not sure where that came from or what prompted it.

I love Kadyn's face here, she was SOO excited to sit on his lap, she was pulling his whiskers, yanking at his bow. It was too funny.
Us waiting before the recital started.
So we had Kylie's first dance recital. It was cute, I think the anticipation for it was more fun for Kylie. They did their little 45 second routine and that was about all :) But she certainly looked adorable!

Weekly Round-Up

Let's hope this makes it here by Easter, I just bought it this morning. (ps- sitting on the Easter Bunny's lap on Monday... will post pictures, can't wait to see how it goes!)
It's going to be better than the girls playing in all the rocks in our flower beds in the backyard. There's sand on one side and water on the other- looks pretty cool! *****************
Girls Night Out This is from 2 weeks ago (I swiped it off Nicole Bell's Blog if you're thinking deja vu), but it was a super fun night for her birthday at Cheesecake Factory. It's such a fun group of girls, everyone sharing food, eating off everyone else's plates, sharing dessert. I'm scarred for life... Shalisse, I can't believe you don't like whip cream!??... Anyway I got home, fell asleep for about an hour and a half... and Kacey threw up all night long. Good times. I was so tired I had to miss our exclusive Twilight Party the next night... (I know, it was that bad!!!)

Thankful Thursday

1. Outback Steakhouse date night tomorrow night. Not sure if I'm more excited about the Aussie Loaded Cheese Fries or the fact that the meal's free!!! (*I know everyone's going to ask, we get free meals there from an affiliation with Matthew's job)
2. We finally learned all the words to "Happy Little Working Song" from Enchanted. So Kylie, Kacey, and I can sing it from start to finish. I figure that looks better than them always singing the songs from the Twilight Soundtrack.
3. When Matthew's done with Kacey in the bathtub, he bundles her up in her towel and sends her over to me- I'm waiting in her bedroom with her jammies. He finishes Kylie up while Kacey and I snuggle. I love her little face as she runs to me, all soaking wet and smiley. So sweet... I'm really going to miss it when she's older and doesn't do that anymore.
4. Kylie had a field trip today to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. Kylie had the best time!!!! She told me all about it when she got home, she was completely fascinated and has decided that we're going again soon. We're really lucky she's in such a great preschool. I'm sure treking her downtown mid-week, little sisters and all, would not make my to-do list... so it's good she has preschool to give her some of those fun experiences.
5. It was early morning and the big girls were still asleep. I was downstairs with the dog, Matthew was in the shower, Kadyn had woke up and was not happy! I heard her, but I had to finish Maggie up and make a bottle before I could get to her. As I finally got upstairs, I saw Kylie walking back into her bedroom (all groggy and half asleep). She had woken up, gone into Kadyn's bedroom (other side of the house) calmed her down and gave her the pacifier, just to blindly walk back to her room, crawl in bed to fall back asleep... what sacrifice! Good little girl.

Sunday Afternoon Pictures

Somehow we all managed to be ready by 11 am this morning. Church isn't until 1 pm, kinda stinks when it's Fast Sunday :)
So we figured we'd take a bunch of pictures. The weather is gorgeous here, mid-70's right now! However, the battery was dead in our fancy camera because someone- (who'll remain nameless) who always tells his wife how to properly handle and use the camera- forgot to turn it off the last time HE used it. But HE will remain nameless :) So the pictures aren't as good quality-wise because it's the old camera.

Yup, it's National Turquoise and Brown day. :)

*And we might as well keep track because it's going to be obvious, no need to dance around it... this will be dress 1. I think I have 5, same style in various colors. What can I say, I really liked it.
