The Latest

Sydney sporting her new look, braces and all.

Sydney and Olivia's latest craze....Harumika. Basically, you create fashions with different kinds of fabric by stuffing it in the back. Awesome! Olivia writes me darling notes like this

Georgia has caught on to "dress ups" (I know, already?) and her and Olivia have a ball

Since the weather is teasing us with spring, every time we can, we go outside.

More of the latest:
Sydney is excited for competition soccer tryouts coming up, her ballet performance of The Wizard of Oz (She's "Fire") and ever since she watched "JAWS" at a sleepover she's been asking to rent "JAWS 2".
Olivia just turned 6, has lost 7 teeth already! wants to practice the monkey bars at the park everyday. Excited to be a munchkin in Wizard of Oz performance.
Georgia is talking a lot! new words include: Thank you, I'm scared, bath, house, candy, bunny. No means yes and no. Cries the saddest cry when she hears soft music, loves to be silly, has to take softee and "Dinky" (binky) everywhere she goes.
Me, I'm training for "Running with Angels" in June...only a 5K, but for me, I need to train for that. Kindermusik is so much fun and I love teaching the moms and babies! Pretty much disappointed in American Idol, but loving GLEE!!!....thinking of auditioning (yea right, I wish) and lately I've been feeling antsy to do something creative. Any ideas??

Drowning in Fashion

Lately Olivia has been slightly obsessed with designing clothes. Yesterday she said to me "Mom, hurry! I thought of another dress and I need some paper before I forget it!" I think it's quite darling and as you can see we have a lot of designs. I especially like the outfit with the extremely long blue pants. Love you Livi!Here is Georgia with her cute little cousin Stephen. Notice Georgia's body language as Stephen reaches out....at least I got a smile:) I can't believe how old she looks here! Sorry if I interrupted your reading.

My New Favorite Song

The other day I came across this song, (Glitter in the Air)and I fell in love with it. I don't know if it's the melody, the lyrics, or just Pink's voice I like, probably all three, but I can't stop singing it. I'm usually not a huge Pink fan, but this softer, more humble side of her is intriguing. Check out this amazing performance. You may think, how did she sing upside down? Believe it or not, it's actually easier, trust me, I've done it:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3stsDXki__U&feature=topvideos
