My little Ballerina...and O the Barbarian!

Once again...I am slacking (thanks for the reminder sweet Carolyn =)). Things have been crazy around here and I getting us ready for a much needed weekend away!! On my to do list was to make sure and get this cute post up before I leave so here goes...=)
Monday was Observation day at Claire's dance class! Mom and Nicole joined us to watch Claire in action. I always watch her from the window but it was extra fun being in there with her! She was just on the brink of getting sick so she was not her usual self, but nothing holds back a girl in tap shoes!! Here are some cute pictures (we were sitting behind her, so bare with me)...you will know which one is her...the only one wearing a fabulous big tutu!!!

Ballet
Tap time!
Owen was trying to run out there the whole time and do the dances with them! There is nothing funnier than a little boy in big tennis shoes on his tip toes!!My little Ballerina!
Claire was not feeling good after dance, a bad cold. Aunt Nicole was in town and wanted to spend the afternoon with the kids and wanted to make tutus with Claire! Claire loved it!! (they even made one for Tara's dog Sadie=)). So Nicole and Claire took pictures of themselves. Claire is bummed out in these pictures (actually in pajama pants and T-shirt) because she was not feeling well and her hair is all over the place, but I think she looks so cute anyway =)!

Before the shower, I had to clean out my office last week. I have boycotted my office for some time as I want to paint, etc. But due to lack of time, we just cleaned it out and rearranged. Now, I love it so much more and have been working in here again. Well, that means Owen is in here all the time. Yesterday I was working at my desk, I thought Owen was in the floor playing with his car. I turn around...
He is sitting on Shane's desk! Is there anything this kid can't get into??!!! He now thinks this room is his new play room... Here he his today...just lounging on my chaise in here...he has his sister's cold now...one thing after another around here!! But he is still cheesing =)...
Have a great weekend!! We are out!! There will be no blogging this weekend but I can't wait to get back and read all of your updates!!!

Great pictures! Is it weird to say that I wish I was in that class with Claire, I so wanted to take ballet, ha! Although I don't if I would sport a tutu, hmmm, ooh but I would so put on some leg-warmers! She looks adorable, I can't believe Owen sat/danced in the back of the class the whole time! I love the second to last pic of O dog! Have a great weekend!

Well, claire looks fabulous as usual...are you making a new tutu every week for her...a girl after my own heart! Claire seems so tall and skinny compared to her classmates...love it. And we obviously love O...Jillian is going to have to pick between big O and Sterling one day to date...they are both too cute for words!

I am loading up on my vitamin C now because there is nothing holding me back from hanging out with Claire and Owen all afternoon tomorrow. And of course I am going to do the cliche aunt thing and kiss all over them and snuggly hug them. They are going to hate me when they get older and I am still doing this. Haha! I just can't resist how cute they are.

Claire is going to be the best ballerina/tap/jazzy dancer ever. She already looks like a professional!! Look at that pointed toe! You go Claire!!

Amy said...
