Crazy Frogs, Fall, School, and Greece

From reading the title, you can probably tell we have a lot going on right now.

Maddie and her hip-hop dance company just finished learning their Crazy Frogs dance. It is VERY cute and quite sassy! The other moms and I are busy making their rubbermaid container and 2 trampolines look like ponds. Being the mom of a dancer is so fun! :)

Tomorrow is the 1st day of October! I love this time of year and am enjoying decorating my house! I keep finding cute stuff, but I am running out of places to put it!

Maddie is still loving school! Yesterday she came to my classroom and said, "Mom, I just love Kindergarten so much!" It is still hard for me to believe that my only child is already in Kindergarten!! (Thanks for the baby fix this weekend Jennifer!) I will just love on everyone else's babies and give them back when they cry...not that Noah ever cries!! He is the sweetest baby! Maddie was a really happy baby, but I think Noah is even happier!

Last but not least...my brother Michael and his wife Laura are vacationing in Greece right now!! I am sure that are having a wonderful time and still checking their niece's blog!! (Yeah, right!)

Little kids are so funny!

Well, I have not blogged lately (sorry Michael!).

I do have a funny story that happened today.
Maddie was walking down the hall with her class. They were coming in from playing outside with their 5th grade buddies. The Kindergartners were beaming with joy that they finally got to meet their buddies. On the other hand, I heard a 5th grade boy come in from outside exclaiming, "I am never having kids!"
Maddie walked by my classroom and said hi to me. (I love getting to see her at school. It is so cute!) After she walked by me, a little girl looked at me and said, "Maddie is my best friend!"
I thought that was so cute. When we got home I asked Maddie what that little girl's name was that said she was her best friend. To which Maddie replied, "I don't know."
Oh the beauty of being best friends in Kindergarten.

It's back...

Our power is back on. Hopefully it will last this time! I am waiting to restock my fridge. We are happy to start getting back to normal. I go back to work tomorrow and Maddie will probably be back at school with me on Tuesday. She told me that she misses her friends and her teacher.

We spoke too soon!

It was good while it lasted...
Last night we lost electricity again!

We've Got the Power!

We lost electricity Saturday and just got it back Thursday night. We suffered some damage due to Hurricane Ike. Our roof lost some tiles and 3 sections of our fence blew down, but we are blessed it was not more. Our thoughts are with the Benys family as they wait to see the effects on their beach house.
Thankfully Uncle Mike and Aunt Laura let us live with them while our power was out! Thanks!! We love you and are so excited for your good news!!

What a Fun Weekend!

We had a great time this weekend with friends and family!

Saturday started with dance practice and then a swim party with our dance friends. The girls had a blast! Thanks Shana!
Saturday night Maddie went to dinner with her MeMaw and Papaw. After dinner they took her to the pet store to get her very own hamster! That's right...I said a hamster! She adores it! Her name is Sarah Anastasia-we call her Sarah Ann. I have to say she really is cute and Maddie is learning some responsibility too. Mom and Dad are not taking care of the hamster!
Since Maddie was with her grandparents, Mom and Dad got to go to dinner with our friends-Chad and Corrie, Mike and Laura, and Elizabeth and Chris. We always have so much fun together. There is certainly never a dull moment!

Sunday was also a very busy day! We went to Alexa's birthday party in the Woodlands. Maddie loved it because it was at a bowling alley. We continued the party at a Japanese restaurant. The girls loved watching the chef cook in front of us. Noah was as cute as ever-notice him sucking his big toe in the picture! What a cutie pie! He is such a good baby!
We got home just in time for a bath and a book before bedtime.

Labor Day Weekend



Did you watch it???
Last night Royce and I watched the new 90210. Well, I watched all of both episodes and Royce watched a few short minutes of them with me when he took breaks from cleaning the Bullitt.
I loved the original 90210! I even watch the reruns now from time to time.
This new 90210 is quite dramatic! Which is probably why I will watch it no matter how bad it is...at least until it gets cancelled!
I like seeing some of the old characters, like Jennie Garth and good old Nat at the Peach Pit. This is probably what draws in the old timers like me!
