A little of this and that

We had a pretty busy weekend, so just thot I'd give a little update!

Saturday was BUSY!! A LONG, busy day.
Gabriella had her first ever dance competition! And she had to be there at 7:30 in the morning! Not a nice thing to do to little girls - or their moms! So she and I were up early, fixing hair, putting on make-up, getting all fancied, and out the door by 7:10. Too early!
Her team performed 2 dances. They placed 1st on one and 2nd on the other! Very exciting! Plus one of the dances won another award - can't remember what exactly - and her studio won the best overall Showmanship Award, plus numerous others. Rick and the other 2 did join us in time for her 2nd dance performance - the first was at 8:30, a bit early to have everyone up and ready and there! But they made it in the nick of time - we were literally running down the hall and up the stairs and to our seats!
It was a busy, fun day, and we get to do it all over again this coming weekend, at her 2nd competition! However, this time I will NOT wear cute little heels - no matter how nice the weather is or anything - I will NOT!

After that we made a little stop at Chuck E. Cheese - we had some tokens left over from a previous visit so thot we'd let the kids ride a few rides, play a few games, and have fun before heading home. They had lots of fun with their few tokens each, Rick ran into an old buddy of his from USU that we haven't seen for over a year or more, and I got hit on. Yep, me and all my 6 1/2 month pregnant glory and 3 kids trailing along, was hit on by a guy. Too bad he wasn't cute. Maybe then I would have felt flattered.

And I was diagnosed, by my PA neighbor, thru our backyard fences, as having a herniated umbilicus. Yep - my belly button has issues. And my neighbor has seen and touched it. Maybe we're a bit too neighborly.

William entertained us at dinner tonite with all of his preschool color rhymes. "Red, red, forgot his head." "Pink, pink, sat in the sink." "Brown, brown, his jeans fell down." and on and on. It was hilarious! I am really impressed that he can remember all of them! He is really one smart little cookie!

Tabitha insisted on my calling her "Dorothy Ann" all evening. No idea where in the world that came from, but whatever. She had an apple just before bedtime, that I think took her about 46 minutes to eat - but she ate it - ALL of it except the seeds. Like, the seeds were all that was left.

Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of the big competition, except a couple of Gabriella with her little trophy after the awards were given out - my battery was dead and then by the time Rick came with more, it was just such a rush. But I will do better this weekend when we do it all again!

Oh, and Rick is participating in his first ever Mini-Triathlon this Saturday!! Anyone know how I can physically be in 2 places at the same time?!

OH! And I cut my hair - ok, it would be better to say, I chopped my hair! And I am really loving it!
