Welcome Home Bradley

Bradley came home today and I dont know who was more excited to see him me or Katie. I thought she was getting use to being an only child, but She said "yea, bradley comes home today when I see him I want to give him a big kiss and a hug and tell him I missed him."We picked him up at his cousins house at about 2:00, I dont think I've ever gotten a bigger smile and hug from him than when I saw him today. They had so much fun. They built and stained a swing set, went camping and to the shooting range and on and on. We are glad you are home Bradley!

Dance Recital

So I promised a new video of the actual recital. Well here is where the disaster happens. My camera battery died right before her dance. It read full battery when we left the house so of course I did not grab the extra batteries I had bought. ARGGGHH! Here are just a couple pictures of her getting ready. She had to have a curly ponytail so we put curlers in the night before, Boy did that remind me of the good old days. Then there is a picture when we were leaving for the recital. She did a little better at actually dancing the dance, but she did a great job of singing the song. It was a song from Enchanted her new favorite princess movie.

Katies Comment

This was just sooo cute I had to share it. Katie was in the bathroom the other day looking in the mirror. She yelled to me "Mom I have my first freckle, I must be growing up!" Oh the innocence, in 10 years she will probably hate all those freckles as much as i did.

Katies Dance teacher had us come and video tape the girls doing there dance so they could practice at home before the recital. Lets hope we got enough practice in. We still have about a week until the recital. Ill post the recital film to so you can see the progress.

Ohh So Beautiful

Yesterday I was talking to Mary on the phone and Katie was really quiet. I should have known something was up. I went to find Katie after hanging up the phone, She was in the bathroom putting on her own makeup. I caught her just in time, she was trying to get the mascara open. She asked me arent I so beautiful. All I could say was YES!

Bradley left yesterday to spend two weeks at Kays mothers. I was soo excited for him to get to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa and two of his cousins. I already miss him. I know its stupid because he spent time there last summer too, he will be just fine. We actually havent told Katie how long he will be gone because all she keeps saying is "I miss my Brother", that and she really has no concept of time yet. While he is here all I hear is Bradley did this and Katie did that. Now the house is just far to quiet. I know once I get back to work on Monday the time will really fly.

Movie Day

We have not taken the kids to a movie for a long time. So on Saturday since it was still a bit chilly outside we decided to do just that. After not being able to agree on a movie and consulting my sister that Bradley could see Indiana Jones we decided to split up. Kaylan and Bradley went and saw Indiana Jones and Katie and I went and saw Kung Fu Panda. Here are our reviews of the Movies and Katies review of the movie preview.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Kay: :"I thought it wasn't as good as the other movies and didn't like the ending."
Since I didn't see this movie I can't agree or disagree

Bradley:" It was Awesome."
Thats all he has said. That and now he wants the new Indiana Jones lego set.

Kung Fu Panda
Jessica:" It has a cute message about liking yourself for who you are, but not really entertaining enough to keep young kids engaged."
We were in and out of the theatre several times and I dont know how many times during the movie Katie changed seats in our row. It was a good thing that the theatre was pretty empty.

Katie: "It was scary."
This just shows how much she paid attention. Even the fighting seens with the "mean leopard" were done with humor.

Katies funny comment on the preview from the new Madagascar Movie.
To set it up; on the screen all the animals are trying to get back to New York and the plane is crashing, The Hippo Is sound asleep and Snoring.
Katie says. " Mom she is snoring on Camera, how embarrasing."
I think everyone in the audience turned and looked at us.

It was a fun afternoon all in all and at least we were inside where it was warm.

New Bathroom

The new Bathroom downstairs is turning out so nice, It is almost finished. Kaylan really has an eye for design, He wont let me choose a thing since I am colorblind and at first I was a little worried I would have no say but he has done a wonderful job. I think that I might go downstairs to shower at night. I might get a shower without being interupted that way! The pictures really dont do it any justice because they sort of put a wierd light on the tile but it is awesome.
