A good portion of my life has been spent playing the piano for everyone else's diva moments. Now it's my turn. I invite you to accompany ME through my life's diva and, well, not so diva-like moments. It'll be entertaining. Promise.

My Girls

I love my girls.  :)

 Kaylee loves her sister.  She made a pile of toys for her to play with.
 Girls night out at Wilson, 2012
 Before our red carpet debut.
 She'll always be my star.  :)
 Kaylee's first (and maybe only??) track run.  She wanted to do it because it was held at Dad's University.  She thought that was way cool.  Although it seemed like she enjoyed it, she says no when I ask if she wants to do another one.  The two teachers in the back are Mr. Ayala, a kindergarten teacher who does the running club at her school and Ms. Lightsey, who is just super-athletic and helps with Kaylee's DI (Destination Imagination) team at school.  Kaylee is involved a lot at school this year.  Student Council Rep, Running Club, and DI.  She has one of those every day after school!  She loves it.
 Another mid-year honor assembly.  Once again, all A's.  Am I surprised?  Not really.  :)

 Kaylee taught Bekah a new trick!

Sunday Afternoon Family Time

We are blessed to live in an A-MA-ZING location during the winter.  This was January.  Yes January.  Note the palm trees, beautiful green grass, and water.  Most especially, note the t-shirts.  :)  In these pictures we are at a park we like to walk down to often as a family to let the kids play on the beach.  We call it our "ghetto beach" because, well, yeah, it's fairly ghetto.  Usually lots of trash and graffiti, but hey, it's still a beach and our kids love to climb the big rocks and throw the little rocks in the water.  It's also 7 little blocks from our house, and it comes equipped with a troll bridge.  That is also a mommy-made-up-term for Mr. Aaron.  Here's the story:  When Aaron was 2, he loved to watch Dora, but he would always freak out when the grumpy old troll would make his appearance.  So to ease the pain, I created the "troll bridge" and the "troll tunnel".  You'll see the troll bridge in some of these pictures, and the troll tunnel we see on our walks in the mornings.  I always ask him how many trolls are there, if they are nice or mean, and if they are nice, they always leave presents for Aaron (leaves or flowers in the tunnel).  He loves it and almost 2 years later we are still doing it.  :) 
This is up above the beach in the grassy area.
 Kids on the troll bridge.
 My little model.  :)
 Learning the wonders of the troll bridge.
Here are a few video links of Bekah across the troll bridge with Daddy's help, and Shawn and I being dorks.  :)  We love our Sunday afternoon family time!!
