Competition and some Extra's

We had another exciting week this week. Abby had her first soccer practice and she loved it but she was sad that she had to miss one of her dance classes. Macie Jane had worked with Abby and when she was at practice everyone was shocked she had not played soccer before.

Move onto Sunday and spring forward an hour + competition + 2 girls = CRAZY

So Sunday morning I was awoken by 2 very excited girls @ 4am...Yes this is not a typo 4am.

Which I promptly sent them back to bed for an hour. We had to be at the Competition ready by 7 am. Very sad for me. We made it and we were actually EARLY. My girls did an amazing job. I was a very proud mama.

Abby's dance got First Place Elite Platinum

Bella's dance got First Elite Gold

It was our dance studio's first year to do competition and everyone did such a wonderful job. I also realized we are exactly where we should be. As a mother some of the music and costumes were soooo inappropriate. I know to each there own but I am blessed to have found such a wonderful dance studio for my girls!!!!

Monday : David and I packed up with some friends and headed back to Kansas City to see Bon Jovi in Concert. We had a great time and it was great to sit at dinner not chasing a kiddo around or trying to strap hi back in his high chair. My phone was dead at the concert but I did get a photo of David and I before we left. Thanks mom and dad for watching the kids. What a great birthday present I gave my dad:)

Sunday, March 7, 2010


Okay so I never figured myself as a big dancing mom but I guess I am. Bella had her first dancing competition. We had a blast. It was a crazy weekend but she did so great and she said she really wants to do it again.

So Friday after school we picked up the Jones girls and dropped of Reid at my dad's for my first time away from him. He seemed not to care a lick as there was dirt to play with. Than we hoped in the car and headed to Kansas City for our first competition. The girls were so excited when we got to the hotel. My wonderful mom came with us. She was so helpful. I couldn't have done it without her. IT was kinda crazy we had NINE people in our hotel room....6 kids and 3 adults...At least we got the beds haha. Man those girls can eat a ton of food.

Saturday we had to be p and ready by 630 and leave our hotel by 715 to get to the music hall and find out where we were supposed to be. Whew. It was crazy we had 11 little girls in and out of our room since w had "the kit" for fake eyelashes, and blush, mascara, rhinestones and fingernail polish....WOW is all I though. We did it though and go to the Music Hall in time. We had time to go back stage and run through the dance and warm up and make the finishing touches..GLITTER ON THEIR LIPS....The girls loved it. Than we left them back stage so we could get a seat and watch. I had butterflies in my tummy just sitting there waiting for her to come on stage. We ad said a little prayer before I left her. And she told me than that they were for sure they were going to place....

They got on stage and did great. These girls have been practicing so hard these last few months. And I am so very proud of all of them. The girls got Second place and qualified for nationals. So they Rocked It.

That night we went to the Cheesecake Factory per Bella's request. WE waited there required hour and a half wait. During that time we wrangled 4 silly girls around. Abby Finally fell asleep and she slept the entire time we Wait on our food and while we all ate. She woke up in the car wanting food. To Fuuny she does need her beauty sleep. The girls had to get back to the hotel so that they could get up ion the morning for dance. So we tied the 6 little girls down to their beds (no we didn't couldn't find enough rope)

Sunday they had classes by master instructors hat the kids really wanted to go to so....we went and than left way too tired.Abby was not dancing this weekend but she sure wanted to several times. At one point we were watching and there was a guy in tights and I asked Abby if she thought Reid should take dance and she looked at me like I was CRAZY.....and said NO.

So glad to be home in my bed got to snuggle my girls all weekend and than my baby tonight. Going to be up early since Bella is student of the week....Rise and Shine!!!

This next week is going to be another busy week. Abby starts soccer practice along with her dance she is already doing. We have the Bentonville Dance Showcase ugggg and both girls are dancing there. So maybe next Sunday I willl be back and repost on the current events
