Karli did so great at her first dance competition. They are supposed to take turns bringing the awards home and somehow she ended up with a whole bunch of them. Unfortunately they have to be taken to the dance studio except for all the pins they get for their jackets.
My all time favorite fast food Tortilla Soup…from Chick-Fil-A. Yummy!
Chase made the front page of our local newspaper. The 5th graders dissected hearts and lungs…eww! I teased him and called him future “Doctor Chase”.
Blake is on his way to being a confirmed Catholic. He participated in the Rite of Enrollment for all of the soon to be Catholics.
Karli and I loved the Shrek production we went to see at the high school. The lead roles were played by some great future actors. Shrek sounded just like the real Shrek and the guy who played Lord Farquaad was so hilarious and played the part perfectly (on his knees I might add!).
Flappy Bird drives me crazy! Karli is amazing at it =) I can’t get past level 6.
Can’t wait to dive into Lauren Oliver’s new book Panic. I can only hope they are half as good as the Delirium Series!
Karli’s made a poster for her big buddy for her competition dance team. Of course I helped a
little =) She has been dying to use some of the crafts supplies she got for Christmas.
My love got me my favorite bagel for lunch…tuna on a garlic bagel. I can’t wait until our favorite bagel place opens up nearby…any day now.
Karli thought she could sneak Tori into her suitcase. We are off to her very first dance competition.
Karli and one of her besties showing off their awards.
These four beauties were amazing in their lyrical dance routine. Their costumes were handmade…gorgeous!
While Karli was competing for dance…Chase was being Mr ToughGuy and kicking some butt at a wrestling state competition.
Snow, snow, and more snow. Good thing the dogs love it! When Tori came in with a snowy beard it made me think of the song in Frozen, “Do you wanna build a snowman?” Like she was asking me to come out in play in the snow with her. Ummm, no Tori. You know your mom hates snow!
I tried out this banana poke cake and while I was finishing it up the kids were yelling for me to not put the crushed vanilla wafers on the whole thing. Crazy kids! Recipe here.
Karli is always cuddling with one of the dogs. Today it was Shaggy’s turn! Such a sweetie.
Ken and I spent Valentine’s day together…first we ate at Sakura (a Japanese hibachi grill place), then we went to see the movie Endless Love, and lastly he got this lock for our bedroom door. If you watch Modern Family, you know what this is all about. =) Even if you don’t, it’s pretty easy to figure out.
Girl’s night…we went to dinner and went to see Vampire Academy. Yes that was two movies in two days! I’m an addict.
Blake and his darn science projects. Andrew didn’t have to do these crazy projects in 8th grade. Watch I will probably have to help Chase and Karli do the same ones. Too bad the two previous projects that teacher has asked Blake to keep his projects to use as samples for next year so we can’t recycle them!
Thank goodness there was no school today so Blake could finish this model up. The project was based on the layers of the earth. Not sure why a 3d model and a poster was necessary. It’s like – we got it the first time. LOL
Karli has her first dance competition coming up this weekend. I told her we would pack Thursday night, but of course she took it upon herself to pack without me. At least she doesn’t procrastinate. Of course I had to go back through and make sure she packed everything. She actually did a good job!
