Cali's Breakfast

Cali helped herself to breakfast this morning while I was upstairs getting ready. Ezra ratted her out by yelling to me that Cali got into some chocolate. Once I cleaned her and the mess up, I went back upstairs to finish getting ready. That's when I was informed that she had found my "emergency stash" of suckers in my purse (emergency equals grocery shopping with three crazy kids in need of bribery). I love how she unwrapped all 7 suckers and turned them into a bouquet.

Course 1: Baker's Chocolate

Course 2: A bouquet of suckers

This girl can sniff out and find sugar from a mile away!

Tomorrow I'm going to start her day off right with a bowl of wheaties.

Bella's dance recital

We put Bella in ballet/tap dance this year. Every Tuesday she complained about having to go. I told her she could quit dance when this year is over. Afterall, I certainly don't want to waist money on something she hates. Imagine my surprise then, when at her dance recital I realize that she is a SHINING STAR!!! She is really good. And not only is she good, but she exuded CONFIDENCE and grace while performing. My reserved and shy little girl was transformed on the stage. She smiled and executed her routine VERY WELL. Dare I brag a bit??? She was the best one in her class! All of the other kids were looking to her to help them remember the routine. And I think she was bit by the performance bug because she is now begging me to take dance again next year. She loved putting on make-up and getting into her fancy costume. Even though I really don't like glamming my 6 year old up like that, I figure once a year is doable. Anyway, see for yourself how well she did on the video below. I apologize for the fuzziness at some points...I'm an amateur with amateur equipment afterall.

Easter morning. I think Cali ate all of the kids chocolate bunnies. She just kept going back for more and more.

Bring on the sunshine!!!

Pretty in their Easter best.
