Glimpse of the future

I got a little glimpse of what it will be like in the next 10 years or so. I was running around the house getting everyone ready for school (like I do every morning - can that count as a workout?). Princess was in the bathroom - supposed to be brushing her teeth.
The first time I walked by, she was putting a headband in her hair and making sure everything was perfect.The second time I walked by, she was putting lip gloss on.
Then she came out and asked, "Do I look beautiful mom?"

Quit growing up!

My brother's babies are here! They were born just shy of 34 weeks so they are just little peanuts. They are in NICU right not, but they both seem to be doing good. We hope they can go home in two weeks or less.

Baby M.; 5 lbs 2 oz.; 17 1/2 inches long.

Baby L; 4lbs 5.4oz; 17 inches long

Here is baby L compared to his Daddy's hand.

Play Ball

Pictures from Princess's T-Ball game this evening.

Here she is in the "ready position".

It is always more fun if you can race one of your teammates for the ball. It adds another level of competition.

Little Miss Attitude.
Grand Slam! Notice the helmet is so big she can't even see the ball.

Dance Recital Pictures

The princess had her first dance recital last weekend.

Here she is outside our house before dress rehearsal posing for the King. The purple crocks are a nice touch.

My friend Ali had to help out with the hair since I am not capable of making a bun that will stay in longer than 5 minutes. (yes Ali, I COULD have cut you out of the picture...)

The Makeup. Princess loved this part. She wouldn't let us wash the black eyeliner off her eyes for two days.

Lining up!
Can you see she has a future in dance?

Friends from her preschool class. Grandma and Grandpa gave her flowers for her brilliant performance.

The babies are coming!

Uncle C and his wife are in the hospital now having their twins!

Seperated at last!

For the past 1+ year the girls have been sleeping together in the same bed. At first I thought it was a good bonding time for them, but as the months passed, I realized it just gave them fuel to stay up and giggle and\or fight until they passed out from exhaustion.

Last weekend we got them separate twin beds (Happy Mother's Day to me). DQ got a purple comforter and Princess got a Pink one of course. They each picked out princess sheets for their new bed.

Notice how DQ's bed basically blends into the wall - we hope to repaint their room this summer.

So far it has been a success - the girls are going to sleep earlier and they are still excited about having their own beds with princess sheets.

Princess curly locks

Last night:

This morning:

After we took out all of the braids this morning she decided she didn't like the curly hair and wanted the braids back in :( It didn't happen obviously. By the time she got to school she liked her hair again.
