My BIG 2 year old

It seems like just yesterday I had this little guy. It was another rough road to get him here, but the excitement of his arrival surely made up for it after waiting a long 9 years to get him.
We love out little Crew so much. He may be a little devil sometimes but he has so much personality, we laugh at him daily. Crew is hilarious. I should have a video camera on him all day long.
We made him our traditional breakfast in bed and gave him a ferw gifts wrapped in pink bags.(Laugh out loud).
We love you Crew, thank you for coming to our family.
he loves his new zhu zhu and toys.

dance for 2011

Well the year has started. The girls decided to try out at a different studio this year for a little change. Tryouts went good and they made the two top spots at the dance studio during auditions. I was a little nervous at this because I was afraid they would not grow But I have seen a huge change in their confidance level which has brought on amazing dance skills I did not even know they had. I am amazed every time I watch them dance. I am wishing I had big bucks to let them go somewhere like Center Stage since both want to excell in dance and even be dance teachers someday. For now they are happy have a ton of friends. Every day it seems a new friend from dance is over to play. Not sure how this year will play out or if it is a long term change at this point or just for the year, only they can decide that. But I want them to be progressing and pushed. Can that happen at the new studio? Not sure.
McKenzie is so excited for her solo this year and partly because Alexis ( who we all think is the best choereographer) is still going to teach her her solo. the girls miss her dearly. MaKayla wants a break this year from solos. it will be her first year not doing one since they were 4 yrs old.
McKenzie had her arial at the beginning of summer and I dont know what happened there but she is scared to death to do them again. growing maybe? Could be she is a couple inches taller than MaKayla now.
I hope you all will come to their recital in November. I have watched their dances and boy have these girls improved as far as facials and really getting into the dance. Cant wait to see what this year brings but I am still nervous.
I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
