Busy, busy, busy ...

... is what we were over the weekend. The best part of course was Autumn's first dance recital. She truly fits the part of a tiny ballerina, but unfortunately she doesn't want to take dance "ever again". It's a bit disappointing to see your child do something so well, but dislike it. She'd rather be running free outdoors with her shoes off, and I guess I don't blame her!

Anyways here are some photos that I have to share. I was the mother who volunteered to stay backstage with our group of seven girls, and I was able to walk to the stage with them and watch from the side which was definately neat. My Dad, who has a great camera, was able to get a bunch of photos of them on stage which I wasn't expecting, but am so happy to have!

A few of the girls backstage lined up and ready to go!

Singing the "Topsy Turvey Flowers" song!

All done!
So pretty!

Back home letting the sillies out!

My attempt at a portrait-style photo

This week we will be getting ready for our camping trip to the ocean. I HATE packing. Keith is a list-maker and said that I need to make a list of things to bring, but I am not a list-maker and can't pack that way. Besides I usually lose any lists I try to make so how's that going to help? Right - it's not!

Since I won't have computer access for a few days I'm going to have to put my Etsy shop on vacation mode. I am a bit afraid to do so, but it's not like I'm continuously ringing in the sales there! If anyone has any tips on that let me know!

Well I hope everyone has a happy Monday!

  1. Such a sweet little ballerina.

  3. The recital looks like it was a hit! She looks like a princess. My DD never wanted to do dance ~ sigh ~ no sweet girly girl childhood memories of tutus or plies. Just a lot of sidekicks, front snap kicks, chopping boards, yelling like Mulan in her Black belted white uniform.

    Have a great vacation and forget about Etsy. You'll come back all rested and charged up to sell sell sell. You need a break anyway. (talking to myself....since I'm on vacation too.)

  4. Beautiful photos - and an even lovelier ballerina:) I love the portrait photo. Have a wonderful vacation:):)

  5. Thanks everyone for the nice comments!
